Whats so great about summer anyway....

WOW. it has been a BANANAS time for me since the last post - with lots of drama, lots of work, and the beginning of a much needed vacation.

I started my vacation last Thursday and am off until July. Sweet lazy bliss.  So far, ive not done a whole lot.  I bought a new book to read....went to Canada's wonderland - and let me say that the new ride kicks some serious thrill seeking ass. And YES - i actually found Canada's Wonderland and didnt get lost!!!

I also bought a book today called 3 fat chicks on a diet. Not that im overly fat or anything - but I figured that someone i know might find it a few years back - her and another friend started a blog about weight loss....I tried to find that blog tonight, but havent been successful. The book was withdrawn from the library, and on sale for a dollar. So i snatched it up, and started to read. Its strikingly similar to the blog that was previously mentioned above, and i wondered if the authors had run across it before their book was written.....

Anyway - my advice - and let it be patent here first. Trade marked and all of that nonsense for my brilliant words to be broadcast to the rest of the globe. you want some diet advice? if you want to lose weight - lose the excuses first. Get to the gym and eat healthy. the weight will fall off. The only thing standing in your you.

Anyway - i was going to travel to Alaska on my lovely holiday, but alaska was 4000 for 6 days. So guess who isnt going to Alaska? I might not end up going anywhere. I might end up laying at the pool for the next 19 days. Fine by me. its gorgeous outside right now.i have new books to read. LOL

the one thing i am doing while im off, is looking - seriously looking - for a new job. im just about done at my place, and cant bear any more drama. I also have decided that i want a pet, (preferrably of the barking species), which isnt easy when you have shift work.

My new job search is entitled "Project 9-5 Dog"

Im applying for everything - teaching, education and counselling. Im sparing no expense in the resume submission department. So if you hear of any good ones - let me know! Id appreciate it.

I hope that all of you are doing well and getting ready for the HOTNESS that is July. Thats why i took june off - all those pesky kids are still in school. LOL!!! And the july long weekend will be the grand finale of a month long break! Wicked. here i come Canada Day :)

The bucket parts

over the last 6 weeks, ive been thinking a lot about my life, and things that im doing and things i want to be doing..and have decided that i need to compile a list of things that i'd like to do before i kick it. (as has been all the rage lately).

off the top of my head...i want to do the following things.

1. write a book (ive written several actually, but they're in boxes in my parents basement - so maybe start sending them out...just incase - AND a friend who works in mental health, asked me to coauthor something she's working this one might be done before 2014).

2. be bold...almost daily. If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always got.

3. get back to my original hair color (which i think is posted here like..7 years ago in a a half blond)

4. really lose those last few pounds that i always seem to put off becuase chocolate/thai food/sushi/pizza/etc tastes so delicious

5. read one book a month (i read all three hunger games in 3 days - no problem)

6. take a serious vacation by myself - location to be determined

7. travel outside of north america

8. stop taking myself, life and my job so seriously and relax more often - going on vacation with a book on incest/victims bill of rights/suicide/addiction/etc...isnt really a vacation.

9. take comfort in small things

10. learn to write with my left hand

11. become FLUENT (not just functional) in french and italian. - this one is currently in the works :)

.....i need to work on this - but its a good start so far.
