I feel purged. I feel eradicated. I feel exorcised. I feel small. I feel childish. I feed greedy. I feel...I feel nothing at all. 











At least not tonight.

I'm going to assume that since no one commented on whether or not they're coming on Saturday no one is coming. I'd still really like to have some people over for Casino Royale so let me know...

Who wants to come to my house to watch Casino Royale? It comes out Tuesday March 13 but we don't have to do it that night. Anyone who is interested please let me know and we can decide a day that works for everyone. You can leave a comment or give me a call at 772-6996 I'm home all the time. If there is no interest I will simply watch it  ALONE! 

Please come....please...I'm so lonely....

Well this really kinda sucks... Yesterday at my first shift back at the South Y my guarding shift went great! It was nice to be back everyone was happy that I was back and I was excited about teaching swimming lessons again. My first class was Little Dippers which is kids 3-5 and so far my kids were pretty awesome. We were playing the Ice Cream game which basically means I call out a flavour of ice cream and if they like it they jump in. Well since these kids are so little they all need to be caught. Unfortunately I had a very over zealous little guy who got super excited when I called out Tiger Tiger and he leaps at me when I wasn't ready knees up and loaded which crack me straight in the ribs on my left side. It didn't hurt that much at first but as soons as I got out of the pool an hour later it hurt to breathe and I could barely stand up. Well as it turns out I've fractured one or two of my ribs and I will be on workers compensation for about 6 weeks. I'm am going to be so bored...and in pain...oh god it hurts soooo much. Breathing, sitting, standing, lying down, coughing, sneezing, whenever I get the chills, if I raise my arm, basically any moving whatsoever. 

So hey! I'm going to have some time off this next couple weeks so if you wanna hang out PLEASE call me! Please? Please?!

This is going to be such a strange Christmas. My uncle is in Afghanistan, my sister was going to come from B.C. but can't anymore and I'm not going to hear from my dad at all since I told him the truth. He phoned a few days ago asking whether or not he was going to see me this christmas (barely a week before Christmas I might add) So the next day I battle with the idea of phoning  him and actually telling him why I don't want to see him this christmas or any christmas. All of a sudden I pick up the phone, dial, and someone else is telling him how much he hurts me and humiliates me, and how sick I am of letting him ruin holidays and times that are supposed to be special. How tired I am of trying to make a relationship with someone who doesn't seem to care about my feelings, my hopes, my dreams, my anything. It must have been so confusing for him since he's obviously never been anything  but an amazingly supportive father and I am obviously the one with a problem.  First he compared me to my mother, then he said something about wanting to get to know me...HA! Then he said "Well I guess the next time you'll see me will be at my funeral" and he hung up. 


What do you do in the face of pure denial...? Someone who, even though you know  he's hurt you so badly in the past and continues doing it in smaller less violent ways, will never, ever admit to it or allow you to feel justified in not letting him hurt you anymore. 

Honestly I feel better having done it, and I feel slightly relieved having told him the truth, but it still doesn't feel like it was me who did it, and it doesn't feel like anything will come out of it besides never having contact with my dad again.

I think it's still going to be a Merry Christmas.

What kind of luck is this? I´ve spent 35 pesos (3.50 american) to come on the computer and Steve isn´t online!!! BOOOOO!!! Anyways I still have 13 minutes so I´ll tell you all about Mexico. 
The buses are freaking insane.When I get back I am never ever ever complaining about out buses ever again...There is nooooo schedule here. They just kind drive past and if you happen to catch their eye while standing beside a bus stop they might stop for you. There is also no way to let him know that you want off! You just have to stand up at the front of the bus (which is going about 110 kms an hour which is terrifying in itself) and he´ll stop for you. And everyone is soooooo pushy! When you walk past a store they badger you to come in. And they follow you around! Most of the guys have NO sense of personal boundries. One guy "accidentaly" groped my boob when he shoved a sarong around my waist!! It´s kind of scary. And they hit on you like no tomorrow!!! One of the waiters has a huge crush on me and he´ll just kind of hover around my table. It seems so weird to me to be vacationing in a third world country. And bartering is tough. Because you know the stuff they´re selling is crap but I mean whats 5 dollars to me?! It´s incredibly misleading to be carrying 500 pesos but what I´m actually carrying is 50 US dollars. Whats so weird is there is just huuuge buildings that are completely shut down. and not in the right way...there will just be a big door turned on it´s side in the doorway and people will live in these abandoned buildings.  Good stuff now. It´s soooo beautiful here. Apparently this weather is cold for the mexicans but it´s beautiful for us. The sun is out granted it is a little windy. The ocean is gorgeous! It tastes disgusting and stings like a motherfucker when it gets in your eye but still beautiful. Saturday I will be snorkeling by three different coral reefs. And my god (hunny stop reading now) the alcohol is fabulous!!! People just start drinking at 9 in the morning! All these fancy slushie drinks and sugar and unhnhnhnhnh soooo good! 

I´m out of time! 

Love you all!!!!!

My life finally feels like it's falling into place. I've finally found my niche. I have never been good at anything, and even if I was good at it, I quit before I could get better. But now I've found something I can actually be excited about. Something I actually care about. Something I'm willing to work at and actually put some effort into. I still need to do some research and check out how my classes work but in the end I hope to become a sign language interpreter. My first class is over and I ended the class with a mark of 98%. And I had to work at it. I practiced my words every night before I went to bed. I went to the deaf centre and practiced actually having a conversation. I've still got a long way to go but this is a pretty awesome start to hopefully my future career. 
In other news in 7 days I'M GOING TO CANCUN!!!!! WOOHOOO. 
Ahem. 
In other other news, Steve and I are still going strong. I'm really stoked about him moving into his new apartment (don't worry hunny my hopes aren't up I'm just refering to whatever future apartment there may be). His mom is really gung-ho to help him move out which will make things a whole lot easier, plus I think I'll see a lot of awesome changes when he lives on his own. Plus we'll finally get to spend the night together in a place that is "ours". 

I'll write another entry when I get back from Cancun.....maybe.

Sometime next week (or the week after) I'd like to have a get together at my house. Just hanging out with shnacks and maybe a teeny bit of alchohol (unless people don't want it). I'm begging you guys; PLEASE GIVE ME FEEDBACK! I MEAN YOU!!!! Let me know whats a good day and good time and if there is anything you'd like to watch or do.

Stupid whiney losers leaving anonymous comments calling me ugly. If you don't mind could everyone go to the second last post I made about which tattoo to get and comment to what that yellowbellied prick said. Thanks!

I just bought myself an iPod shuffle and it holds 120 songs. I can only come up with 46. Can anyone suggest any good technos, good one hit wonders, or just good songs in general? Please?

Alright I have a decision to make. I have two tattoo pictures that I really want but I can't decide which to go for. They're both Kurt Halsey pictures. Originally I wanted the fish, but then I found the birds and now I'm completely torn.

 

Both of these will go on my right shoulder blade and probably about this size.

HELP ME DECIDE!!!!

It's really quite upsetting how one song can change the mood of your day. One depressing song and the world shifts and you are sad and lonely and nothing is going right. 



I now despise sleeping alone.
