bucket list addition: bungee jump. it looks so exhilarating. I think I’d puke.
cure for a crappy day: chamomile tea, romantic comedy & a puppy. COMMENCE!
another thing for my summer bucket
buy a disposable camera & fill it with pictures of everything that I do/see every day or every week. Like my bedroom, car, UFV, Ben’s house, Kim & Nate’s, friends & etc. I figure it’ll be really interesting to look at in the future. Especially since this is my last semester at UFV and I’ll be moving out in the fall.
I am still determined to be cheerful and happy, in whatever situation I may be;...– Martha Washington
just a note to say that this time in my life is really nice. I am really enjoying it. I read a Kurt Vonnegut quote about a year ago, and I think about it a fair bit because he has a great point. “And I urge you to please notice when you are happy, and exclaim or murmur or think at some point, ‘If this isn’t nice, I don’t know what is.”
When I procrastinate, I usually like to have a “reason” for it. Incidentally, I am also very fond of organizing. I organize when I’m stressed or overwhelmed and I organize when I’m bored. I like it. When I’m procrastinating (on statistics that I’m 8 weeks behind in, and on a psyc final I have yet to study for), I organize. In grade 12, my high school had the...

catching up on the statistics course that I’m currently 9 weeks behind in (go distance!) waiting to hear back from 3 places and finding out where I’ll be working this summer studying for my psychology exam wooop. I like everything but statistics. It’s no wonder I’m behind.
sleep in, tickets to Sigur Ros this summer, good job interview, oatmeal cookies & chamomile tea, PostSecret TED talk, and studying psychology. how lovely is today so far?
- give up the Internet for a couple of weeks and embrace life with things that actually make me feel happy/productive/successful - get a job - work on little book of things (I often categorize my life and think “thing to remember” “thinks that bother me” and, of course “things to be happy about”) - bike lots (including Stanley park) - walk lots - get/make...
Of Monsters and Men -Love Love Love
Spent 5 hours in the ER with Ben tonight and left with more questions than when we went in. He’s okay - or at least not in rough shape. I hate spending time in hospitals.
The other day I was thinking about things that truly make you feel. (Hold on for a second, I hope this isn’t as corny as it sounds.) I’ve have always been one to scoff (even if inwardly) when people talk about songs that make them cry. I’ve considered it to be a pansy sort of thing to do, and I never had. I think grade 12 was the first time that I did. From that day, there are...
