"A goal not written is simply a wish..."

I am SO EXCITED for SUMMER!!! I'm not gonna lie, I haven't missed exams, and trying to figure out where to live and work for the summer...it's been nice. And since I know when all my holidays are and I am not in a panic to make money to get me through the next year I have had fun brainstorming about things I want to do...

Here's something I just found...it looks so fun!! 2 hour zip line ride..speeds of 50mph, or MORE..100 ft above the ground!! So guess what I decided...yep, I'm going to do it! Let me know if you want to come...or more like..when you want to go! Walk in the treetops looks fun too, and the hiking and biking..okay, I want to do everything!

planes, trains and automobiles

Well, it's already been a couple weeks since I posted something...but it's been a busy couple weeks!! Last weekend was I think one of the most fun weekends EVER! It was packed with adventures, and they were somewhat spontaneous, which made it even better! Edmonton friends came down and the weather was soo nice! Our activites included rockclimbing, frisbee, dance parties (well..mostly one that last about 24 hours) wedding parties, sketchy security gaurds :) more parties, car troubles, kayaking, and of course baking!! Laura stayed at my house all weekend (+ a day..I kidnapped her..really she wanted to stay though), so it was fun to be roomies again!!

As for the last week..I have been in LAS VEGAS!! I was there to do a course for work, and learned a lot..I know it sounds cheesey but I am a big fan of continuing education, it makes work a lot more fulfilling. Plus I love the office I work at so a week vaca with them is great! We went and saw the 'Phantom of the Opera'..it was AMAZING! ( http://www.phantomlasvegas.com/) My mom took me to it in Edmonton when I was 5 because I was obsessed with "singing like Christine"...so I was eager to see it again, and it was just as good as I remembered. I will be truthful though, this time I was a little more interested in Raoul :) Basically whenever I hear the song "All I Ask of You" my heart melts...too bad he's not real...oh well, I thought the same thing about Aladdin when I was younger, and I got over that..sort of.

My flight left Vegas at 6:00am today and took me to LA, where I was then sent to Vancouver...where I waited 3 hours to get back to Calgary..a bit ridiculous, I know, but I was just so happy to be back home! ...the southern Alberta pace is more my style!


Hmm, should I start this again??

Well well well, it's been a good 6 months since I posted something on here. I didn't think it had been that long...A friend emailed me and "kindly" reminded me that she likes to know what I am up to...(you know you could just call me! She really really likes blogs. I would say addicted. buuut she wouldn't like that, so I won't even mention the word!)

A LOT has been going on..and I guess I have just been to busy to think about coming on here..(hmm, what does that say about life now??)

Lethbridge has been going great! It is really amazing to me actually. I know I am supposed to be here..it's a good feeling.
I have been thinking about a lot of things over the past month or so...it is really wierd to just be working. I never really planned to be in the career I am in, or in the city I am in, or really any situation I am in...go figure..haha! But I can see how it is all working out for the best.
This past weekend was so fun! I have so many things to be grateful for!! I have such awesome friends and room mates! Seriously...I really couldn't ask for better! Last weekend I went up to Edmonton with some Lethbridge friends, so it was like the best of both worlds! (this may sound cheesey, but I don't care) I know that I can count on my friends to be there whenever I need them...and I rely on that a lot. There have been a lot of late, or I guess early, phone calls recently and without fail there is always someone on the other end of the line. I really appreciate it. They can always get me laughing..sometimes all it takes is one word, ie. "haard" (eh laura?..haha!)

Today I spent the whole day with my familia. This morning and afternoon with my Dad's side and then this evening with my Mom's side. I am so glad that I am so close to all my cousins and aunts and uncles. We have so much fun together! They are crazy! But's it's okay, because I am too, so we get along great! :) It was really nice to be able to visit with my Grandma. She is so wise and I always feel so excited and hopeful about life when I talk with her...she has been through a lot, and I am glad I have been able to learn from her..she always says she feels like she is still in her 20's...and as time moves by so quickly, I am beginning to realize that she may be telling the truth! There really is not enough time to not be progressing, in every aspect in life...not to get overwhelmed, but just making each day better then the one before. I heard a quote once, someone was asked "how is your day going?" and the person replied, "it's my best day so far!" I love that! How great would it be if you could say that, everyday was your best so far!
Why not?
