Current Music: A Holiday at The Sea - Anathallo

so guys.
i'm off of livejournal.
i'll keep my account active just so i can perhaps have recolection of this time in my life later on.

but LJ has just been way too much about self pity and the vicious cycle it is apart of.
so i'm out.
if i've met you over this wonderous thing, i'm glad we met.
and i'm glad i got to know those of you i already know better.

anyways, it's been real.

Current Music: i'm real(j.lo cover) - the starting line

bonjour!
sometimes i just love everything about life.
like wednesday.
shopping and getting a new purse that i love.
on sale.
and then blowing the money i'd allotted for a new purse on stuff at blessings.
and it being life-changing.
thai for lunch.
and getting my new bumble and bumble deep conditioner.
and falafels for dinner.
and then church.
and choir practice.
or like friday.
being curled up in an afghan listening to rachel yamagata and the rain while my dad makes a deeeeelish meal in the next room.
then getting a free worship cd for my birthday from this random radio show.
it saved my like 30 bucks.
then spending the late evening with all the soccer hotshots and my mom's boss' adorable kids.
seriously, having trice look up at me with his big blue eyes and demanding "book" while climbing into my lap, then resting his head on my shoulder all night and holding my finger melted my heart.
or today.
waking up an hour early so i can walk the half hour to get fresh fruit and organic vanilla soy for breakfast.
and finding all the new magazines are out and indulging.
and long chats about good cheese and restaurants with my boss.
and making enough in tips for all the clothes i want to buy.
but deciding i want to put it in the bank instead.
and then coming home to a hot bath and grape juice and fresh bananas and cherries.
and karlie being home.
and tomorrow is church.
yay, church!
and monday is the icelandic festival in Gimli.
annnnnnnnd.
they come home.

mmmm.
life is good.

Oh what a wonderful/wonderfully boring last 10 days it's been.
Dee Dee and Arielle left me too.
So this past weekend I had nothing to do.

I miss everyone SO much.
I just want you to come home and be here and do stuff.
I don't even care if it's just looking at millions upon millions of trip pictures arielle-style.
Just come home.

I went for dinner with Cleo though!
Then we went to get Gabrielle and we went out for Starbuck's and pooled all of our change to get espresso shots which made us rediculously hyper and buzzed.
Then I got my wisdom teeth pulled on Monday.
I had my first choir practice on Wednesday.
And DeeDee and Arielle came to church and it was so awesome to see them.
Gosh, I love them so much.
It was fun and everyone was sweet and I'm going to be taking lessons of the drums.
FINALLY.
Thennn on Friday morning they left and since I've really done nothing.
On Saturday I slept over at my Grandma and Grandpa's alone(since they're in C to the A to the LLLLLLLGARY).
Which meant lots of Tab energy and MTV.

Stupid summer.
All i can tollerate music-wise is pop-punk and dallas green.
Nothing of substance(besides dally.  come on people.)
oh, well.
i think i kind of like it.

Insignifigantly enough.... @ 10:54 pm

AHH.
The past couple of days have been so wonderfully lovely.
Like, pure blessings.
Last night was Anberlin.
They were incredible, first off.
so much energy and passion.
second, everyone in our little corner was so into it.
third, we hung out with them after.
and they are seriously some of the sweetest people ever.
they were so incredible nice and hospitable.
then today i found out my ministry application was approved.
major thumbs up.
so i'm officially going to be singing in the choir and working in the coffee shop.
heyyyooo.
and today at work i made $30 in tips(not too bad) and leave 15 minutes early to hang out with the modelest girls ever.
we went to nurv which was pretty amazing.
there was worship for an hour and it was so moving.
i just felt the presence of God wash over me and i was crying and just so lost in it.
i need more nights like that.

tomorrow is dinner with jon and deedee at joey's polo park.
i get to wear my new dress!


its not about the money we make,its about the passions that we ache for. what makes your heart beat faster? tell me now, what does your body long after? i don't care now where we live. its not where, or what, or who we we're with. i just need you in my life. so promise me again.

so today was one of those days where life just seems peaceful.
granted it started  last night with my sister and i satying up late talking, eating watermelon, and watching miami ink.
today astucally started not so well with me and my mom having very tense moments, but some really bad radio, a morning glory muffing, a conversation with a stranger about dallas green, and an iced chai with vanilla soymilk later and i was set.
i'm becoming a 'regular' at espresso junction and tall grass prairie and the workers recognize me and remember what i like.
after i ate breakfast i sat on the docks and read and wrote and fed the ducks and ducklings.
then i walked to the museum to volunteer.
this is basically the best volunteering job ever.
i get to hang out outside downtown and talk to artists from Mexico all day long and hand out programs to random hipsters in the exchange and talk to them about public art and such.
it is all of too wonderful.
then i took my mom a banana milkshake from Vj's and went and blew a big amount of weekend tippage.
i got 3 cds(including the new sufjan!) and two new books(including charmed thirds in hardcover).
then i went to work where i made $15 in tips but it was so dead i didn't mind.
we just sat around drinking slushies and talking.
it was really nice.

tomorrow i have the day off!
i'm volunteering in the morning and then off to dinner at Moxie's with my sister and church.
then i'm sleeping over at the sirotas and thursday...ANNIE.

so life has been pretty nifty.
on canada day everyone hung out.
we went to osbourne where i blew some money on this amazing new top, then i had to work, and we went to the forks afterwards for fireworks.
oh and i saw steph which was funny because i'm so akward when i meet people (but you were so nice)!
it was a typical winnipeg c-day, but fun.
very fun.
then yesterday we(meaning ashley, arielle, amy) and i went to see our husband(dallas) and dashboard at the convention center.
dally melts my heart.
he's the performer i've been most affected by ever(connor, you're amazing but sorry).
dashy has really changed since the last time i've seen them.
the old stuff even felt different but it's still good.
i met miss amy for the first time.
she is supercalafragalisticexpialadocious.

my girls are leaving tues.
what the heal am i going to do?
i cried today just thinking about it.

oh and i got my hair cut.
i love edward carierre.
and vanilla tea.
yumyum.

i'm going to minneapolis until monday so don't expect to have contact with me.
wow this was really long.
just so there's some light at the end of a tunnel....

so i'm supposed to be cleaning my room.
yeah, okay.
the photographer i studied with this fall asked me to be her temporary assistant but, unfortunately, i have work.
ugh.
that would have been so awesome.
anyways, i'm going to apply to starbuck's since i was into my regular one the other day and the lady begged me(for the second time) to work there and insisted they'd work around my other job.
so since everyone is leaving i think i'm going to work mornings at starbuck's and evenings at topo and make some extra money instead of watching daytime t.v.
plus, i'll get to hang out in the village every day and get free drinks.
yay.

So tady was my birrrthday.
But last night was the real party.
My friends and family threw me a surprise one.
To say I had no idea would be an understatement.
We took up 4 tables at Grace.
We were loud, generally obnoxious, and everyone was quite funny.
Then we went to pick up Jon and Arielle and snuck into harbourview park to take pictures.
Thank you so much.
You'll never know how much you all mean to me.

so i'm sitting here in the sirota's house.
i just woke up from my  6 hour sleep.
yesterday we randomly decided to head into the city and hang out with everyone after our last exam.
which, by the way went pretty well.
we had to write a three-page persuasive essay.
everything i thought about was cxheap/typical so I wrote about the advantages fo beards.
so we went to get arielle, dee dee, and jon.
went to KP to meet Aynz.
She ended up not coming then.
Ash bought me my birthday present(which i adore!!!).
We went to Osbourne, got starbuck's, walked around.
It was pretty deserted though.
So we drove to the forks and walked around there, talked by the river.
went to the old cathedral to visit louis riel and just do general hanging out but there were some shady fellows there.
almost got into an accident(thanks arielle - "guys why id did that is in Trinidad..." "YOU'RE NOT IN TRINIDAD!")
then we went hoooome, only to pick up aynz and drive around more, pointlessly.
we went back talked in the tent until 1:30 when we made a candy/jolt run.
thought we were going to get killed/raped by someone outside the tent.
oh my.
today: exploring the exchange.
tonight: the hills!
tomorrow: sleepover at aynz's.
friday: my brithday!

i love that school is out.
