Do you guys remember the feeling when your life changed? Not in a bad way or anything, but in a big way. For instance, my sister is moving to the city, and my parents are moving away. Not too far, only two hours or so, but they will be gone...off doing their own thing and having fun in their retirement years (thank god! It's about time). I guess it's just weird because my entire family will be spread out now. We are all going our own ways in life, and although we will see each other often, it just feels...strange. Maybe it's the fact that I will never visit Orangeville again after Thanksgiving (my parents move afterwards) and I have lived/ gone back there since I was 11-years-old. So yeah, changes. Good ones, but changes nonetheless.

I am so lucky to have such talented people in my life. Dave's brother Steve, (who I have written about many times before) happens to be an incredibly talented artist. What's with these Coleman boys and their amazingness? Anyway, back in July Steve gave Dave a painting of Frank Black for his birthday and has since finished a short, pretty frigging cool video that follows his progress on the painting. He asked Dave to compose some music for it, and voila!, you have a masterpiece.
Check it out here!

This weekend was crazy busy. But it was awesome...went by WAY too fast. While driving home on Sunday from our various adventures, and the sun was starting to set a little, making the shadows long, I remembered that I had to work the next morning. Such a bummer.
So part of my busy weekend was to pick a wedding dress.
It's no secret that I am turning into a girl. Now, don't get me wrong...I will never be full on girly girl. Not that there is anything wrong with it, just, you know, I need to hold on to some of the swearing, burping, farting, video game playing chick that I am too.
So I am always looking for cool ideas to store all my crap. And although my collection is still small, it is growing...quickly.

Last night Dave and I went out with our friends Di and James. Love them HARD. Sounds perverted. It is.
We started out at our local hole in the wall, hanging out on the patio, but Di knew that if she got a few drinks in me that she could drag my ass elsewhere. Which is what ended up happening. We hopped in a cab and she took us to one of her many amazing discoveries, Souz Dal.
This place is super dark, all candlelit and inviting. I can imagine walking by on a blistery winter night and wanting to nip in for something to warm your bones. In other words, awesome.

So excuse the randomness of this post. Because there is a whole plethora of things that don't fit together, but still make sense in my mind. Sometimes I still feel like that hippie, with my thoughts that just appear and whatnot, and then I remember that I stopped smoking pot a long time ago. On account of it making me insane. I can't handle my shit anymore guys!! AHHHHH!
High school was a battlefield for me. I did a lot of drugs to try and be cool, to coast through. And then I got myself kicked out at 15. But that was cool. It was an opportunity to try something new, something different. So I lived on my own for a while. And when I did decide to go back to school, it was on my own terms. MY WAY.

You know, the ONE good thing about working for a bunch of suits is that you don't get sad about the end of Summer at this point. Because you never really had a Summer. At least not in the sense that you had 2 months to play and laze around...
Summer doesn't officially end until September 23 for me. And damn it, I am going to make use of these last 18 days if it kills me!
