Day 2: If you don't know, now you know. Bitches.

Hey all,

So about that 30 day challenge thing i said i'd do..... I never promised it would be 30 consecutive days! Anyways I' ve been nipple deep in papers and exams as there are 2 weeks left in the semester, and my immune system decided to take a break. This always happens at the end of November,Oh hello chest cold! right on time as always. Why is it you can always count on the bad things to be on time, while you wait for the good things forever! Anyways you get the point, i'm busy and sick. But i've put together day two, here goes.

Day 2: A picture of you and the person you've been closest with the longest

So I feel as though this was a pretty obvious choice. There are a few friends who I've known for 20+ years (god that makes me feel old) but you can't argue the fact that we have all been closest to our mom's the longest. Not only have I known her for my full 25 years on this earth, but I also spent 9 months in her belly, and I think it's safe to say we knew each other during that time. Sorry to disappoint any of my other friends and relatives, but you really had no chance considering my Mom had a 9 month headstart.

All jokes aside my mother is the best person in the world. Believe me I know. Sure I am biased, but I bet there are at least 4 other people who would agree with me. How many mom's do you know listen to Eminem, and Snoop Dog? I'm sure there are a few, but most of those are the "I try really hard to look cool for my kids" type. My mom listens to this music on the sly. To be honest she will probably kill me for outing her here. So obviously she isn't doing it to be "the cool mom". Everyone hates that mom, ugh. Also my mom doesn't drink, but is ironically a sommelier and knows everything about wine. Which is helpful on the off chance I decide to stray from my usual 9$ depanneur wine.  Theres also all that other sappy, she supports me, and understands me, and really super loves me alot stuff, but I'm sure you dont wanna hear any of that. 

Basically my mom's the shit. If you don't know, now you know....bitches.

30 Days Of Truth: Day 1

Hey there,
So as most of you know I am normally a very witty, creative, and sociable person. These days, however, I have had to turn myself into a very serious, left-brained homebody. This transformation was not completely voluntary, well actually that’s a lie. I took it upon myself to return to university and having been there before I knew exactly what to expect. Don’t get me wrong, I love school, but I miss the creative me. Specifically, I miss writing…a lot. And not the kind of writing my science lit class requires (don’t get me started on that). Anyways, the purpose of my little rant is so you can give me some sympathy. I have left you (all seven of you) without an update for far too long, and to be honest I don’t see an opening in my schedule for any real creativity anytime soon. So I have taken to something very cliché, “the 30 days of truth”. I know, I know, how overdone right? Well bare with me, I’ll do my best to insert a bit of originality throughout. So sit back and learn a little about me, I’m more interesting than you think. I promise!


1) My biggest dream is to live and work outside of Canada. I would like to work with an animal        sanctuary working towards preserving endangered species in the wild. Yeah that’s right, this city girl wants to live in the wild!

2) I admire my boyfriend. He is the most talented, driven, hard-working, loving, and caring person I have ever met. I hope to be half of what he is.

3) I have made more mistakes in my life than I would like to admit. The incidence of these mistakes however, has significantly dropped within the last 2 years (things have really been put into perspective since I’ve moved away from my hometown).

4) I miss my best friend back home every day. Life is not the same without her around.

5) I LOVE to dance. Love love love it :)

6) You know how its super annoying when someone answers the question, “what kind of music do you like?” with “everything”? Well I do that, but it’s true! You’ll find everything from Souls of Mischief to Mozart to Chromeo on my playlist.

7) When no one is home I sing constantly, like so much that sometimes I can see that my cat is even annoyed. Mostly I sing Aretha Franklin, Jan Arden, Melissa Ethridge, and any and all power ballads. Oh and I rap to myself… a lot. I have some seriously good flow.

8) Don’t judge me but…I would really like breast implants. I know most people don’t like them (my boyfriend included) but I have wanted them since I was like 16, and haven’t changed my mind yet. I even find myself researching doctors, and lots of before and after pictures. Hmm maybe that means something else…

9) I am really easily amused, and I love that about myself. Things are always fun! Although I’m aware that sometimes I come across as someone who trys too hard, because Im always laughing….but I can assure you, I really do think everything is that funny!

10) I secretly want to be one of those girls who has hair extensions, always has her makeup done, and is always dressed to the nines. I also know I will never be like that. I have better things to do with those 2 extra hours in the morning…Namely, my boyfriend.

11) Ever since I started noticing the opposite sex I have wanted to date a dancer. Ask any of my friends, I’ve always thought a guy who could dance was the sexiest. This could be the reason the first time I met, and kissed Marc was on a dance floor. I’m a sucker for a guy who can move...

12) I almost died a few years ago. Like spent time in ICU, it’s a waiting game almost died. I still have too many scars, and pain more often than I would like, but I am forever grateful to be here. My life has gotten exponentially better since that day.

13) I have a somewhat secret and deep love for gangster rap music. I listen to it and rap all the time, I know all the lyrics. It puts me in a good mood. I also very much enjoy very dirty sexual lyrics, they amuse me and I also sing them loud and proud. When I’m alone or with a select few people. Quick quiz...who can name this song? "speed bad the clit, leave it black and blue"?....C'mon Kels I know you love that lyric! :p

14) America’s funniest home videos is still the funniest show on TV. I laugh myself to tears everytime I watch it. It’s mean but I cannot NOT laugh when people fall, it’s hilarious. Everytime!

15) I am terrified of driving, but really want a mini cooper. Seems too small to be safe though. Hmmm, I feel like that thought has crossed my mind in the past...
