But it was okay...

I've always felt different. Since I was a little girl. I never quite fit in. I never knew where to begin. But it was okay because that was all I knew. As I grew older, I started learning more and more about people, about change, and about life. But it was okay because that was how it was supposed to be. I knew I would never be a dancer, a singer, a sailor, a journalist, an actress, a lawyer, or a businesswoman. But it was okay because in my head I still dreamed of doing all of those things. Now, I am still growing older, making more mistakes, learning more lessons, and getting more confused. But this time, it is not okay because I have most certainly lost my way.

I tripped over my orchids today. It's okay though because I did not hurt them. They are still as beautiful as ever. I think I will try to get flowers for my room at least every couple of months. They make a big difference. They make the place prettier and not to mention, they make me smile whenever I look at them.

Early Lunch (Brunch?)

I have been up since 5AM this morning because I had to drop my friend off at the airport. He is going home for a few days to visit his family. He didn't even tell them that he was coming. That is going to be one heck of a surprise! Haha. I am so envious right now. I really wish I could have gone home but ticket prices are way to high right now for some random reason.(????) But then again, at least I won't be freezing my toes off in the fidget weather of the Northeast. It is so cold up there. My mum told me the other day that they still have lots of snow left from all the snow storms they had. And apparently, the weather is much warmer and is in the 40s.... Yeah. That part I defiantly do not miss. I am fine with my 77 degree weather and I like not having to wear my gloves, scarf, and jacket just to get the mail. Hahaha.

Anyways, since I was up so early I had to eat an early breakfast, which threw me off my schedule. I got hungry again at 10 AM! So... I ended up making myself some fish sticks and salad. They were both SO good. My mouth is watering just thinking about them again. Hahaha. I find that I actually like fish sticks. A lot. I dunno why I don't eat them more often. Anyways, the salad was also scrumptious. It was made of spinach, watercress, tomatoes, onions, and chickpeas (my favorite). The dressing was made by my good friend Toni. It was a recipe her mom gave her and she decided to share it with me. She actually made me a small jar (really, she made me enough for 5 salads. lol) of it so that I could see what it tastes like. It was so YUMMY. It was a blend of seasoned rice vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, and honey Dijon mustard (in case anyone wants to try it). We decided to name it Toni's Delight (Yeah. I know. We are so original! Hahaha). And then to top off my brunch I also had a mango passion smoothie on the side. So delicious. I have recently become obsessed with these fruit smoothies and I have gotten a couple of my friends hooked. Maybe I will make a post on it. They are so yummy AND good for you.

Hoping you have a delicious lunch or brunch

Classroom Boredom

Every time I go to class it is always the same thing. I start out the beginning of my day awake, happy, and smiling, but then as class goes on I ALWAYS fall asleep! I can't help it. It's like clockwork. Usually after 2 hrs of class you can always find me right there dozing off in the middle of class. And the funny thing is that it is never just me. Usually half the class is asleep too. Today, I turned around and the girl sitting behind me was knocked out with a blanket wrapped all around her. Hahaha.
My class is in a lecture hall so you can get away with a lot, but that to me was just too much. But I do have to say that she did look quite comfy. I was only a little bit jealous. Maybe next time I should bring a pillow too... Just kidding! Maybe.

Hope u have a lovely day!

I saw a thousand birds yesterday. It was so beautiful. Like a dream. Their silhouettes were black against the brilliant bright blue sky. The way they flew and moved in formations was so perfect. So precise. They turned from one direction to another, looking like a dark river snaking off into the distance. It was such a rare sight for me! Especially in a city!  Occasionally, they took the time to land on a traffic light or building top. Just for a few seconds and then they would fly off, continuing their journey to wherever they were going. I was in awe. I wish I had my camera with me so I could have taken a picture. I think from now on I will try to always have it with me. I wish I knew what type of birds they were. They looked like sparrows to me, but I can't be sure...

Happy Sunday Everyone!

Christmas at home!

Here is how I spent my Christmas and the day after Christmas. It was such a fun day!

Some polaroids I took that day

Present from my little sister. (It was an art calendar and a beautiful watch).

Croissants my sister made. So tasty. 

One of my favorite drinks! (It's not alcohol)

The foyer looked so pretty!

Mr. Snowman was missing part of his arm :o(

Our pretty Christmas wreath. I think it is about 6 years old!

One of the cards I got this year. 
The day after Christmas was my little sister's birthday. Usually we go out for dinner on our birthday with the whole family. But.... It snowed so we couldn't really do anything :o( 
But I have the sweetest little brother in the world! He surprised her by buying her a birthday cake (He is only 13 by the way. I don't know any other 13 yr old who would do that). <3

We had a huge blizzard. My sister's friend who had visited couldn't move her car because it got snowed in.

Overall, it was a nice an relaxing holiday. I wish that it didn't end. Can't wait for next year! Hopefully by then I will be better at taking pictures and capture more of the fun moments. I was pretty lazy so I didn't take that many pictures. Not even of what people got. :o( But all the same I had fun and I hope that your Christmas was as magical and fun and mine!

Hey Guys and Gals!

What a crazy holiday season it has been! So many things to celebrate and so many family seen. It was wonderful! :o)

Sorry I have been away for so long. As I stated earlier, I tend to be bad at the diary and blog thing BUT I am trying! (as you can see). I was thinking about whether I should make this blog about something specific, but then I can't figure out what I would make it about. I love so many things but I am not good at one specific thing. I have always been jealous of talented people. From art to music to dancing, or even math geniuses, I think that they are all amazing! To you talented people out there kudos to you! Haha.

I plan on bombarding you all with pictures of my Christmas at home, but I don't want to add them all in one post because that would just be one ridiculously LONG post which can be annoying for some people. Here is a preview picture to tide you over until my next post:

Since we were all away at school there was no one home to put up the Christmas tree :o( My sister and I usually do it. So this year, since we came home only days before Christmas, we decided to make a makeshift Christmas tree! This is what it looked like. Cute right? Hehehe. I hope everyone had a magical holiday!

Happy New Years!
