So I am leaving in a week!! How exciting is that?? I have never traveled on my own before, only with parents or other adults. I went to B.C for a summer with my Baba when I was like, 7. I also went to the Bahamas when I was 15 with one of my best friends' folks. When I was 17, my parents took all their kidlets to Venezuela. Other then being to a million cities in Ontario, thats all folks!! So my point is that this is really exciting. It is the first time I have purchased my own plane ticket. I had to go and renew my passport. I had to buy a good back pack. Not to mention save up for the time of my life, going away with another of my best friends!! All we are going to do is walk, and shop, and drink beer. Yowza!!

I took this picture as I was walking home one day through the rain. It was such a weird/ lovely evening that I couldn't resist.
I love the rain. Right now, it is raining heavily (from the effects of Hurricane Ike), and I am drinking a glass of wine and listening to it fall outside the window. Earlier today, I had a bath and opened the window at my feet and read my book, and gazed idly at the drops. It conjures a feeling of gratitude: that I am warm, and dry, and have hot food to put in my belly.
I am at my folks' house at the moment, in my old room, listening to the rain outside the window, like I have for many years before. And even back then the rain would make me feel contemplative about my life. The things I used to think about then are very different from what I think of now. It's amazing what ten years can do do to a person's mind.
Well kind reader, peace out.

I want to get fit again. I sort of became comfortable with my body as of late, and then WHAM, I started working out. Just like that. I guess I got to thinking about how I am a year away from turning 30, and then 10 years will go by SO fast, and then I will be 40. I do not want my lack of activity to creep up on me in my later years, and by then it will be too late. So, bear with me kind reader, as I hurt and sweat and shape and sleep. I would say that I will keep you posted on the results, but I am not too concerned about results right now, I am only concerned with being able to laugh again without feeling like there is an alien bursting out of my stomach. Also, it is September ladies and gentlemen!! I love the Fall. I love it more than the Summer. Today is also the official one month countdown until I leave for Europe for ten days, which is very exciting! All the exercise I have been getting should help me get up all those stairs once I get to Edinburgh :) Anyways, peace out!
