So yesterday was the 44th annual Caribana Parade (although now it is called Caribbean Carnival). Although my friends thought I was a veteran this was actually my first time going to see it. I was actually suppose to be in it this year with one of my besties but unfortunately the timing of the modelling/fitting for costumes was the same day as my grandmother's funeral and clearly my priorities were with her. And the second shot I had at discounts on the costume I had work and only a days notice.
So I haven't really been near my computer all that much the past couple of days because at long last, the weather here has finally cooled off a bit (still being 27-30 C) so I have been doing productive things! I have been working on my deck with my dad and we will actually be able to finish it in the next couple days! I'm so excited about that. It means that I can get some colour before the weekend because if you know anything about July Jams you will know that this weekend is CARIBANA! I'm SO EXCITED. I was suppose to be in the parade this year but due to some bad timing I was unable to attend the fitting for my costume but since I was blessed with the day off work I am going to attend the parade with a bunch of friends from campus. And I really don't want to be the palest person there (although no matter how much I "tan" I will still be the whitest of my friends there ahahah) I just can't win when I'm surrounded by black friends =P!
I have also been going through an endless amounts of boxes in my basement from when my dad and I moved a couple years ago. I have been quite successful in the past couple of days. Been through 12 boxes, completely emptied 10 and reorganized 2. Damn I'm good ahaha. In addition to all that fun stuff I help Got rid of some of my Nana's clothes that we had at our house from when she moved into her nursing home. Since her passing my dad and I just haven't had the time to go through all of the stuff we have of hers. But in organizing her stuff I did find some amazing things that I kept. So I technically have a Vintage Fashion Haul that I could film. So leave me a comment to let me know if any of you guys would like to see that!
I LOOOOOOOVE HARRY POTTER.
Now that you know that I can continue on. I may not get a lot of postings done in the next few days because I will be spending my spare time rereading the final Harry Potter Book in time for the release of the final movie instalment this Thursday night at midnight! AHH I'm so excited. I was granted the pleasure of seeing Part 1 of the Final film at the opening viewing mere hours before it aired. I was out and my boyfriend called me and asked if I wanted to see it. I was in shock and he was like "HURRY I need to know!" I'm like "duh you dont have to ask its obviously yes but how am I going to get there!?" We were at the theatre eons before anyone else and the line up hadn't even begun. We were in the theatre for probably an hour or more before anyone else and then around I think 9pm we saw people heading in the direction of the screening. My bf ran quick times and we were part of the first 20 people in line and everyone was standing and I was like HA I'm not standing for 3 hrs and I sat down. No lie, within 2-5 minutes everyone was sitting; I felt like quite the trend setter ahahaha. It was awesome. So me, the boy and some of the same friends will be doing the same in a few days time.
I apologize if I do not post/upload a lot this week but will make it up to you soon but I MUST finish this book
I'm not sure what else to say or what else to call it. When I have a minute to sit down I just feel very...ick. Last night was when it hit me like a brick wall; I was on my computer late into the night because I couldn't sleep and I blamed the muggy hot weather. I was getting really irritated because as much as I wanted to sleep, I could not worth a damn. So I was slightly grumpy from just being awake and staying awake was annoying me more, but I thought it would pass. I was wrong.
This morning I got up rather late seeing as it is my day off and I was still feeling agitated but I couldn't blame the weather and its come and gone all day. I just get uncomfortable and irksome which puts me in a bit of a foul mood. I feel like I can't catch my breath, although I'm doing nothing exhaustive. I cleaned my room so that I could film and do stuff for you guys thinking that would distract me and now my room is about 85-90% finished and I'm still UGH. I'm annoyed that I'm irritated because there really is no reason for it and I don't like when I feel something for no reason. I like when things make sense and this certainly does not.
Anyways, I'll be doing some more updates later I'm currently running out with my dad just to get out of the house and see if that light
So this past weekend as many of you know was my birthday (as well as Canada Day)! I turned 20 so I've parted with my teen years but have to admit they were great but onto the next decade!
Friday which was my actual birthday I spent up at my Aunt's house with family, sat on the patio, ate, drank and were happy. We just really enjoyed ourselves. I filmed my premiere episode of Health & Fitness Friday with some minor interruptions from my uncle who loves to drive my crazy (and I also tease the hell out of him -- we have a hilarious relationship). We had an amazing ice cream cake that I haven't had in years and wish I could have had more but we didn't have a way to bring it back to my house. So that is sad but I got more cake the next day when my boyfriend and a group of my friends threw me a surprise party! I've never had a surprise party before and I was super shocked and happy. That cake was fluffy and super yummy and i should be getting the left overs this week since the next day we went to Wasaga Beach and again I had no way of bringing it with me =(. So sad. But I have a bargaining tool to get it because it was left at my friends house and his swim trunks ended up in my beach bag so muahahahahaha! At wasaga we played beach volleyball for hours and today I am so damn sore! I'm hoping it passes soon. But I got tanned so I'm really not complaining. Check out this video for other details on my weekend!
