Okay, I’m a terrible blogger. It’s been almost a month since I’ve had a real post and even now, I’m sitting in the laundromat while typing it 1 because that’s just the way my life goes now. I have a good
excuse reason though… my roomate broke her arm. Really badly.
[And if you're reading this, cause you saw it and said last night that you're a curious person... Go to sleep. You need a nap.]
So I’ve been taking care of her, checking on her at lunch and making food/cleaning and all that. Which takes up quite a bit of my time, because by the time it’s done I just want to sit and watch Grey’s Anatomy with her. Plus there’s work, which is super busy but still super awesome- I’m really loving the project I’m doing right now. So much that I actually thought about working on it right now while waiting for the washer to finish, but I decided to blog instead. It’s the first really big FULL DESIGN project so far- I mean, I’ve done full page ads and newspaper ads and plenty of other smaller things, but this is an entire brochure. A huge, folding brochure from start to finish. I basically got final say on the size, I get to do the entire design from scratch and make it however I want. I’m really loving it so far.
Since it’s Easter weekend, I feel like we’ve been constantly doing SOMETHING all weekend. I had friday and today off work, so our friend Zach came over to watch movies on Friday. He’s someone we met in Owen Sound, because his mom works for the Art Gallery that works with my office quite a bit. So he came and we watched movies, then Danielle’s friend came down until Sunday so we all kept watching movies and hanging out. We had an easter dinner Saturday with Danielle’s family + Zach & Allie, which Danielle’s mom made which was SUPER amazing and delicious.
Sunday, my parents came down for a few hours & we went to the flea market, Danielle’s mom & Allie went home, and that afternoon Danielle and I went to Zach’s for his easter dinner which was ALSO delicious. After dinner, we hung out and just watched movies. It’s weird how NORMAL living here is. It doesn’t feel like I’m just kinda staying there while I’m working, it feels like HOME. And I love it. I’m actually scared of what’s going to happen when the term is over and I have to move back for school… I don’t want to. Depending on Danielle, and my school schedule.. I really want to just stay there. Maybe not forever, but definitely for awhile.
- Yes, this place has wifi. Pretty epic. ↩

I spent the weekend back in Milton. It was my mom’s birthday (today), cousin had a hockey game (haven’t seen them since Christmas), my oldest sister was going to be home (she lives 6 hours away for school) so it seemed like a good idea… at the time. My sister came to pick me up, and drove Danielle and I home Friday Night. My mom was going to come up on Sunday anyways, so she was going to drive me back here.
I should have just stayed home. Home as in Owen Sound. I love this place. We’re somewhat making friends, and just kind of force ourselves to go out and be social. I’ve been on two dates with a guy, and while I’m only interested in being friends- It’s nice to get out. I would not be doing any of these things if I was still living in Milton. I love my job, my apartment 1, my roomie. Everything about this city, I love. I was actually miserable at home, except for Saturday night- when I went out for a birthday dinner for Danielle’s dad. So I go home, and only hang out with my roomate because my friends apparently suck and really don’t care that I’m gone at all. Oh well, their loss. We were going to go back next weekend as well for a St. Patrick’s Day party at Danielle’s 2 but she’s thinking about cancelling it now because neither of us want to go back.
Moving here was honestly the best thing that could have happened to either of us. We both needed away from our parents, our ‘friends’ and everything back ‘home’. It’s not home anymore. I’m basically not allowed to move back when my co-op ends, and I honestly don’t want to- but I still have one more semester of school to finish. I really, really hope I can find a job here for after I graduate- either where I am now, or somewhere else. There is Canada’s largest magazine printing company here in Owen Sound, so maybe something there. All I know is that three hours after I was back, I couldn’t wait to get home.
So, if you don’t see new posts as often… It’s because I’m busy. With work, friends, dates, fundraising galas and so many other amazing things.

I’m here! Currently sitting in my living room in Owen Sound. We moved in last sunday, but didn’t get internet until Tuesday, but we’ve kept pretty busy (even just watching Grey’s Anatomy) since then. The house is great, minus a few downstairs neighbour problems (we have the top level of a house, an older couple has the bottom level). Work is AMAZING, and I’m really loving it so far. One ad I designed has already been on the front page of the newspaper, and one is going to be in a magazine out early next month! I got to take part in an IT meeting about the website servers being hacked, where they actually asked (and appreciated!!) my input. It’s really awesome, and I think I’m going to LOVE the next 8 (hopefully 12) months.
Since we know 0 people here, We1 are trying to meet some people who do live around here. So last night, we decided to go to a bar. We found one (well, there’s a few actually) less than a 10 minute walk from our place, with a pizza place in between2. We talked with some people all night, but sadly it’s pretty hard to meet FRIENDS in bars- there’s only girls filled with drama or guys looking for a hookup, not a friendship. We still might go out with them tonight though for #whiskeysoursaturday but we both drank a bit too much last night to want to drink a lot tonight. But we need friends, or else I’m going to be super bored and lonely next week while Danielle is in LA!
