Day 14- A picture of you and your family

I’m skipping “Day 13- A letter to someone who has hurt you recently,” because there honestly isn’t anyone who has hurt me to whom I should/could write a letter.

Unfortunately, there also aren’t many pictures of my whole family… Its been a long time since we got an official family photo or anything. The closest I have is probably excluding my dad, from when my mom, sister, and I were out on the street waiting for the torch to pass (2010 Olympics):

Thirty Day Challenge About Me — Day 12

Day 12 - How you found out about Tumblr and why you made one

I found out about Tumblr because of Reddit, actually. Reddit directed me one day to Fuckyeadoctorwho 's tumblr, which I started following every day. Then I decided I needed to make my own tumblr so I could follow tons of other people and reblog and shared the awesomeness! >_>…Yes! Its basically because of Doctor Who that I found the amazingness that is Tumblr… :D

That’s how it all began!

Thirty Day Challenge About Me — Day 11

Day 11- Another picture of you and your friends

Unimaginative question much? Okay…

Just me, David, and Brit this time :)… In line to see Marianas Trench in Yaletown (I think) during the Vancouver Olympics!

Thirty Day Challenge About Me — Day 10

Day 10- Songs you listen to when you are Happy, Sad, Bored, Hyped, Mad

I don’t have a playlist for each of my emotions… but I guess I listen to just about anything when I’m happy… whatever my head wants… probably stuff like Marianas Trench and Taylor Swift especially… or maybe dancy music.

As for sad… hard to say… depends why I’m sad… my mood doesn’t necessarily dictate my music… I might pick something sad if I think that I feel a similar way… or something happy to make myself feel better…

Bored? Meh… probably just shuffle… I probably have no idea what I want…

Hyped: Dance music, almost certainly…

Mad: the angry Taylor Swift songs, for one. But I don’t really have anymore angry music… I used to really like Disturbed and Seether and stuff like that, but I kinda got over that…

Thirty Day Challenge About Me — Day 9

Day 09- Something you’re proud of in the past few days

This took me a while to think of, and honestly, its going to sound really really dumb… but since no one really reads these anyways, I guess it doesn’t matter too much.

As anyone who can read my little profile on the side can know, I’m 21 years old… however, I’ve never learned to swim, as pathetic as that may be. I never had lessons as a kid, because my parents probably didn’t have the money for it (guessing by my knowledge of their money problems these days), especially not on top of my skating from age 4 until sometime around grade 3 or 4… (so, around 5 or 6 years), on and off gymnastics lessons, mostly when I was younger, and a handful of horse-back riding lessons…

After that, when my mom started worrying that I didn’t know how to swim, and in a city in a province so close to so much water… well, by then, I’d adopted a bit of a fear of water. Not that I couldn’t be in water, but I was scared of drowning… I need to be able to either touch the ground or else be able to maintain a hold of something that will not allow me to go under the water. I need to close my eyes and hold my nose to be completely immersed in water. Its sad.

I like being in water well enough, once you coerce me into it, I like the weightlessness, for example, but I can’t swim, and I can’t float.

So… getting back to what I’m proud of. On sunday, my bffa (best friend for always, shush, we’re cool… or were when we were like 14) Brit wanted to go swimming in the pool at her apartment complex. And after much persuading I finally consented (besides not being able to swim, I also hate myself in a bathing suit)… partly because she told me that there was no where in the pool where I wouldnt be able to touch the ground. We stayed in for a long time, and everyone cleared out of the pool. Meanwhile, I’m getting more and more comfortable in the water, and I manage to get to the point where I can float on my back only holding on to the bar of one of the ladders out of the pool. Now, that sounds like not much, but for someone who can’t stand the idea of trusting the water to hold her up, especially not laying on her back, its a lot…

>_> Sometimes its the little things…

Thirty Day Challenge About Me — Day 7

Day 07- A picture of someone/something that has the biggest impact on you

This seems a little bit like a toss-up between my fab best friend of 10 years: Britbrit, or my awesome boyfriend of 1 year and (nearly) 8 months: David… and it almost seems wrong if you only look at the time amounts, however:

I kinda have to pick David, just because he’s so amazing. He makes me so much happier than I ever remember being before. I’m so lucky that I have him. <3

Thirty Day Challenge About Me — Day 6

Day 06- Favourite super hero and why

…Does the Doctor count?…

Probably not >_>… sigh…

I guess its Batman:

Why? Well, partly, just because I really like that logo for some reason. I don’t know why, but ever since I was a kid, I always said that Batman was the best super hero. To be fair, I did watch Batman cartoons when I was a kid, but I also watched Spiderman… but really… you compare bats and spiders, and who is going to win?

If you said spiders, then you were sorely mistaken.

Also, besides that, The Dark Knight was an awesome movie…

It took me a long time to finally watch it… because I’m not that much of a super hero/comic book girl anymore… (though I still want to see Spiderman with Toby Macguire and Kirsten Dunst)

So yes, Batman. Because of the awesome logo, an intense movie, and on top of that, a bloody awesome car:

Thirty Day Challenge About Me — Day 5

Day 05- A picture of somewhere you’ve been to

Now, I really wish I had my old pictures from grade 5 when I was there… but I don’t, so I googled a pretty one… ((one day I hope I can find the old film rolls and maybe just maybe they will still be developable))


Now, I haven’t been to the Empress specifically, but this is Victoria. Beautiful, lovely Victoria. I was only there once, in grade 5, and I soo wanna go back again!

Thirty Day Challenge About Me — Day 4

Day 04- A habit that you wish you didn’t have

I’m messy. My room is a disaster zone. Seriously, it looks like a tornado ran right through it and then a hurricane followed close behind it…

Well, not right now… I cleaned it a couple of weeks ago in an odd burst of cleanliness. Only its getting close again. I’ve stopped putting my shoes back in the organizer on my door. My clothes are beginning to pile up around and on my bed. Plastic shopping bags are also scattered all around my floor.

On top of that, while I hate it when its messy in here, and I wish it were cleaner, I know very well that I won’t try to clean up again for a very long time. I have better things to do… I have my boyfriend to talk to, homework to be doing, books to be reading, places to go, things to see… So yeah.

I’m messy as hell (except digitally, on my computer, which is pretty well organized), and I wish I was more motivated to be neater. But I’m not.
