Happy, Happy Birthday!

Today is a very special day, for starters it’s my sister’s birthday. She’s 19 now, and officially allowed to go to clubs and casinos. Though I’ve told her…I really don’t think she should try gambling.

It is also the 4th Anniversary of this blog! I can’t believe it’s already been this long.

I also don’t know why I’m awake so early…I’m just waiting till 7 am so I can register for my courses. Apparently I can’t register at 5 in the morning.

March 26th

As of March 26th, I’m now 21. My family expressed to me how weird it is. Honestly, I feel the exact same as I did when I was 20, 19, 18, 5.

I’m really grateful that they all drove out to see me, since I wasn’t able to come home this year for my birthday. It meant a lot to me since I’ve been really stressed out with school lately.

As of 12 am I completed my final essay of the school year. Now, all I have to do is get through these last two weeks of classes before exams.

Since I have more free time I’ve also decided that since I am 21, I’m going to sit my butt down and get my novel published. I’ve been working on it since I was 17 years old. It’s about time. So, I’m now going to create a writing and editing schedule for myself so that I can get it done quickly. If I work hard enough I should be finished typing out the good copy by Easter (I usually write by hand).

Well until next time,

Happy Birthday Gummy Bear!

So, today is my nieces 5th birthday!

Happy birthday little girl. Keep being you, cause you’re awesome as you are.

And just for you, I’m going to share the song we sing together.

Presenting, the Gummy Bear song, which my niece likes to sing while pretending she is a DJ.

Love you. Hope you like your present. ­čÖé


My mom nicknamed us all after candies, and so we call my niece Gummy Bear, and this is a song my little sister and I used to sing when we were little kids, so we brought it back…and boy does it annoy my folks when the three of us sing this over and over and over during car rides.

Are We There Yet?

I’ve┬áhad lots of homework lately, and its been cutting into my me time. Where I read and write whatever I please. So tonight I guess I’m going to bed without doing any work on my stories and art…bummer. Oh well, at least I finished my homework. I’m a little bit behind on two readings but I should be able to catch up sometime tomorrow or Thursday. I’m at the point where I can’t wait till the final exams. I’m less stressed than I was before the reading break, but I’m kind┬á starting to feel like┬áthat impatient kid in the back seat of the car going, “Are we there yet?”

Despite the amount of work I need to get done I will not let myself slack off on my writing. I want to reach my monthly goal. I have a little less than three weeks. My work out goal is also included in this. Trying to lose at least 10lbs, but that goal stretched into my exam period. Basically I want to lose 10lbs between now and December 17th (coincidentally my Dad’s birthday…along with several other relatives. December’s expensive).

So finish novel, lose weight. That’s my goal, and I’m not going to give up. I will succeed and┬áreach my goal. I’m determined.

Trolling Dad

I’m such a troll.

Not the rude obnoxious kind…the kind that makes lame jokes and then giggles about it like a child.

I’m just so easily amused. I trolled my dad all weekend while he was watching a movie. I talked with my sister┬áthroughout the whole thing and made references to things that┬áhe didn’t understand.

Then yesterday morning I shouted the word my sister and I were screaming during the movie and he just sat there.

…but Dad, if you look at it this way, at least we spent quality time together as a family right? We ate pizza, we laughed…you glared at us. It’s all good.

I’ll get you something nice for your birthday.

Mom’s Birthday.

So I’m buying my mothers 50th birthday gift tomorrow. I asked her what she wanted and I think she was trying to be like…reasonable about the price because I’m paying for my own rent and food and she knows I’m not working at the moment. Except it’s her 50th birthday. I finally have my own money that I can use to purchase gifts for my family members. My parents have always supported me and made me feel loved (except during those awkward preteen years where I thought no one understood me or cared about me…you know that phase).

My mom is a hard person to shop for. I know she hates jewelry around her neck or wrists. She told me I could get her a scarf…and I know she likes her scarves but that’s such a simple gift. I want to do more than that. She also said she wants a cool ring or something. I don’t know. She was all like, “I didn’t really think about it.”

Why does my mother have to be exactly like me when people ask her what she wants for her birthday?

I’m always like, “I don’t know…books?”

Anyway I don’t know what I’m going to get her. I should just sleep on it I guess. I’ll probably buy her a scarf or two but that just doesn’t seem like its enough. It’s not even the price. I really think I should give her something that she truly wants. Maybe she really wants a scarf but based on the tone of her voice on the phone it sounded more like she was like, “I don’t want you to spend so much money on me.”

Mom, I don’t care! I mean…no offence but we all know that your other children aren’t going to give you a present and if they do it’s because Dad was all like, “What are you getting your mother?” or your granddaughter was all like, “I’m going to give Mumzie a pink and purple princess crown!”

Yah…I’ll sleep on it. Hopefully I can think of something. Better get back to bed. It’s 5 am….

Wow…I’m so happy I was notified about this before I went to bed. For some reason I thought I was still around 500 and I guess with all this school stress I wasn’t able to put as much focus into my blog and my novel as I’d liked to.

November went by and I didn’t work on my novel once…. I will in between all of this studying though. Exams involve writing, and my writing can only improve when I’m writing.

Luckily even though I didn’t actually get to write anything and wasn’t able to give as many writing tips and share my favourite quotes with everyone like I normally do, I got to share pieces of my life with all of you. Even the pieces that I wasn’t comfortable with sharing at first…and I’m glad I did now, because your encouraging words really helped give me that extra push to just get out of bed and keep on trying my best and working my hardest.

So…thanks everyone.

What makes this so special is that I hit 1,000 at hour my niece was born.

I’m so happy that I decided to start this blog.
