Something just broke

Posted on 2010.03.16 at 01:06
Coming back to my journal I've realized that the name I chose for it back in the day was the result of a song by Stephen Sondheim that affected me in a lot of ways, the song is titled Something Just Broke and I feel at times especially lately that something has, the vase has been shattered and water and flowers and bits and pieces of the crystal are floating around, soaking themselves into the carpet. But a good broken, a fresh start, a new lease and thats what I'm setting out to do.

And in other news frack its hot in my bedroom.

Life's Unexpected Changes

Posted on 2010.03.14 at 12:01
As I sit here and write, which for those of you who used to read my journal frequently, it has come to my realization that I need to be writing again, lately I feel as if a part of my soul has been missing, a piece of the puzzle had fallen on the ground and I was to lazy to pick it up. Writing itself has always been something I love, I adore words and yet I seem to have fallen off the writing world map.

Life itself has been crazy as of late and with that a lot of new changes are about to take place, one of them being a shift in vocation and job, after almost two years in my current employment I have decided to leave at the end of June. Sadness is a feeling I am struggling with but happiness as well, happy to know that I am able to leave and not regret my decision.

I've decided to come back to live journal, so here we go, lets make it happen.

One should not take such long stints

Posted on 2008.10.11 at 02:53
I've realized that I have been away from here for so long and I doubt if anyone reads this anymore, but it is 2:54 in the morning and I can't sleep. I just spent the last few hours making apple pies and they smell delicious. I am spending tomorrow decorating the church that I work for up for thanksgiving and the senior youth who are around will be helping me, so as a reward for hard work they will be receiving a piece of pie and ice cream. YES I bribe my youth with food, it works though.

Life has been crazy busy lately, my bed is causing me problems so I think I have to either buy a new bed, or ask my landlord about replacing all of the beds in the house, one should not wake up every morning with severe pains in their back. I still haven't had time to paint the room, it was to be one of my tasks this thanksgiving weekend and instead I am studying for my midterm exam and doing the thanksgiving dinner thing at my ministers house.

I am also spending Monday with some friends so it's a great weekend. Been working hard on a few different projects of late, one of them is a cabaret that is being presented on the 7th of November.

My 26th birthday is coming up, not sure what I am going to do for it, Hallowe'en should be a lot of fun, we are having a party, or at least we have talked about it. So thats my life in a nut shell, I am also working on an evening called He Loves and She Loves, which is an evening of Broadway done backwards. I am also on the makeup and hair team for Romeo and Juliet and co-directing GODSPELL.

So I think I will start writing again, things have been tough lately and I've wanted to break down and cry many times but I've been holding up well.

Anyways, I promise my next post wont be seven weeks from now.

It's been too long when you come back and you don't recognize the site at all. I was like holy crow batman what happened, and then realized the last time I posted was in December of 2007. Yikers and a half.

Well you know how you sometimes write something and then at the last moment it gets canned because it is too long for publication, well that is what happened to me. So instead of having it in the paper I am going to post the article I wrote here.

I know your like what an article. Well a little here's what is happening in my life. I am going back to school in oh three weeks, taking one history course this semester and working two jobs. One is at the Yogen Fruz and the other is as youth coordinator for Forest Hill United Church. I am moving to Waterloo in 13 days and I am excited, nervous, can't wait.

Two weeks left of summer camp and then I have two days at my parents and then goodbye Oshawa,hello Waterloo.

Thats pretty much my life atm. I was going to post the article. I will next time.

LAZY LYRIC POST

Posted on 2007.12.20 at 21:39
I so know I haven't written in here in forever, but seriously my life is all on fb, and soon to be a new blog so this isn't where I post, though I love this song and wanted to share the lyrics.

Merry Christmas

TURKEY LURKEY TIME
From PROMISES PROMISES
music by Burt Bacharach
lyrics by Hal David

It's turkey lurkey time
Tom turkey ran away, but he just came home
It's turkey lurkey time
He's really home to stay, never one to roam
Let's make a wish, and may all our wishes come true.......
A snowy, blowy christmas, a mistletoey christmas
A turkey lurkey christmas to you...
A turkey lurkey christmas to you
It's loosey goosey time
She was a gadabout, but she's back again
It's loosey goosey time
Her time is running out, and we all know when
Let's make a wish, and may all our wishes come true....
A snowy, blowy christmas, a mistletoey christmas
A loosey goosey christmas to you...
A loosey goosey christmas to you
Turkey lurkey, loosey goosey
Some for uncle joe, some for cousin lucy
Everybody gather round the table
Dig in, dinner is being served
Eat all the turkey you are able
Can't you see a partridge in a pear tree?
Climb up and bring it down for me
That's something i would like to see
A snowy, blowy christmas, a mistletoey christmas
A turkey lurkey christmas to you......

Writer's Block: My Personal Style

How would you describe your personal style?


I think this is an interesting question because one has to really search within themselves to define their style, I've always joked that on some days it looks like I've just stepped off a yacht, whereas others I am comfortable in a baseball cap and jeans, depending on my mood is how I decide what I am going to wear.

Relaxed and preppy would be the words, I am in love with the Ralph Lauren style so I'd go with classic and simple is my look. But I love outer wear so in the winter I have a plethra of coats and hats and scarfs and mitts so yeah, I like to keep it simple, but enjoy what I choose to wear.

A Thanksgiving Experiment

Posted on 2007.10.08 at 10:23
I haven't posted in a while, and the reason for that is I spend more time on my facebook, but I felt that I needed to write down my experience of yesterday, it was a good one and suffice it to say I am glad it happened.

I spent the day with Drew well okay close to four hours but for a busy Thanksgiving weekend that was plenty of time, I didn't get to see him on his actual birthday so I had his birthday present already and was just excited that we were spending the day together.

He arrived around 12 and we chilled in my room, talked, laughed, I sang a song for him, talked some more, ate nerds (part of his gift) took some photos and he opened his gift, which was a plush giraffe, a book of rilke poems, the nerds, a coffee crisp, a picture I drew for him, a bottle of canadian club, an origami pig and a wooden turtle that I painted and placed the quote on. Needless to say he liked the whole gift, oh and I lent him a c.d. as well.

We then started talking about 'us' which I must say was a good conversation, we both are at the "really like you" stage and it's nice, comfortable,easy, nice. I then said to him do you ever notice that people never keep their eyes open when they kiss, so we had our first kiss but as an experiment as to if you could keep your eyes open while kissing, you can but it is kind of strange.

So it was a fun time and we made plans to hang out on the 17th, as this coming week I am super busy, but there you have it, we really like each other and we kissed.

Happy Thanksgiving Canada!

If you could be another person for a day, who would it be and why?

An interesting question with I hope an interesting answer to tie it all together into one interesting package, it's funny as an actor I can say well I play a different person everynight I go out on stage, or everytime I am cast in a show my life takes on a new character and a new persona, but I really guess that is just a cop out answer and nothing really exciting or fulfilling.

If I could be another person I think I'd want to be a pilot, now I don't know if this question means person like living or dead or like actual profession, see i'm already confused and don't know how to answer, but you know what no I'm sticking with a pilot. I'd love to switch lives with a pilot for a day and fly a plane, the answer is rather simple I love to fly and I love travel, being a pilot would give me the chance to see the world in a different perspective and give my life more meaning, the fact you hold all those passengers lives in your hands as well is exciting, and flying down through the clouds is an experience I truly love.

So if I could be anyone else it would be a pilot, now where are my wings and my white scarf.

Black is this years pink

Posted on 2007.06.14 at 17:05
I don't know why I decided to come back to camp, I'm really struggling here and just want to go home, not because I miss my family but because good things were happening there, granted I make money being at camp but it doesn't seem worth it, I don't know what to do. I'm not gonna moan, just feel like I am at a dead end and not sure where to go.
