ya ya..The years do seem to go by faster and faster. Thing is, they DO because you can't believe that THAT much shit actually happened in just one year. When you were a kid/pre teen/teen the things that happened, the excitement, the change, the depression in your life happened but over three years instead of 6 months.

Twenty o8 was an epic year of long term relationships coming to an end. Some of which I cried about more then the people involved did.
For me, I broke up, got back together, broke up, got back together, broke up, got back together. Crushed and was crushed by one man.
I had quite a bit of short term "friendships" too

I may hate America as a whole but I don't hate all American’s and I don't hate some of their beautiful cities and country side. Anyway…they finally stood up for change this year. Even if most of them don't understand what it's really going to take people to do to ACTUALLY change. But I say, a want for change is at least a start.
Black prez… that's pretty awesome. OH and there's the little issue of Wall Street and them being on the verge of another depression. Ps. did I mention we aren’t doing so hot either?

John McCain said “my friends” 24 times during the town hall debate. Which if you were playing the drinking game would have really fucked you up.

California made gay marriage illegal again. Fucking ridiculous.

Many friends moved away this year. Some came back long enough for me to feel like they never left, only to leave again.
I bonded more with some people, grew apart from many

On the hill's Spencer and Heidi got married..or did they?
On young and the restless Catharine Chancler died and Victor Newman died….or did they?

I went to two other countries.
I fell in love with one.

OJ Simpson went to jail! 8 years after he was supposed too. For a totally different thing!
The Canadian dollar was at it's highest since a long ass time
Metro Vancouver had its most snow since a long ass time ago

My dearest friend became an aunt
My longest friend had sex with twins at the same time.

I had 4 jobs this year!

I went through 5 roommates. I’m not a bad roommate honestly…it was all for different reasons. I am happy with the end results.

I inherited 6 cameras. As a result I decided to get back into photography. It’s been a slow start, but the love is still there and I feel creative again. I also started this blog. Then I deleted it. Then I started it again.

Pirates came back with a vengeance!

This time it was not Johnny Dep in pirates of the Caribbean 72 but real pirates…Somalian pirates.
“Taking advantage of a country without a stable government, the pirates attacked more than 90 vessels this year, seizing almost 40, and raked in some US$30mil (RM95mil) in ransom.”

I had Christmas at my house this year. My sister came to visit which meant I was to spend the holidays with family for the first time in over 7 years. So I got a tree, bought presents (went broke) and I decided to make a huge Christmas dinner, turkey and the works.
My sister only ate mashed potatoes. But I love her anyway and at least we refreshed ourselves on Walt Disney and Star Trek. Watching 4 movies of each.

I hope to spend new years with Jake, Jenni and Jeff, drinking wine and loving my life because I’m pretty lucky, and it’s been pretty good so far.

ps..i mean i'm pretty sure i look just like

secret not so secret obesssion with...


this video gives me a femboner:

blog jamming during the winter nights

It's no secret to most of my loved ones that I'm not always a pleasant person to be around during the long winter months. you could say I'm a bit of a depressed Debbi, a sad sally, a miserable Monah, a mopey Mindy etc etc. but due to a couple of things I've decided to do this year, I'm feeling not too shabby. I'm still as much of a hermit as always but this time...I'm fucking loving it. there's nothing I'd rather do lately then to come home, drink wine, blog a bit, order curry, snuggle with my amazing cat and watch old movies. I've been on a Walter Matthau train lately and i don't think i want to get off anytime soon. my house is a comfy winter cabin with cable and a pile of movies begging to be watched. it's like taking a personal day for months. as Jake and Erin would say "a personal month" but more like a personal SEASON.
i don't go out too much and therefore i don't see too many people. the best part is, i don't feel bad about it AT ALL.
anyway here's my motivation for staying home: (you tell me you wouldn't do the same)

Long live something

Serina Nell. Friend shout out# 6
I have not kept in touch with many people from my childhood. I used to feel bad about it but the more i've grown and the more wonderful people i meet as the years go by, i don't.

You're personality changes, so who you at age 7 is obviously nowhere near who you are at 24. Most of the time you're lucky to have a friend that changes with you throughout the school years let alone the rest of your life following. I did not like a lot of kids my age growing up and i don't think they even knew who i was and i certainly don't regret moving away from all of them.

In grade 8 i met one girl who's grown with me since then. No one before then and no one really after (Mind you my last 2 years living in kelowna were also spent getting to know some pretty great people)

I just want to say i'm glad she's the one person i kept in touch with from those days. She's taught me to be strong, not to think to hard about bullshit, what other people think and to live life the way i WANT to live it. which is the way everyone should live really.

She's inspired me and showed's ok to be crazy.

i don't see her often but she's still close to my heart. These days i'd sum her up in one word: twins!!

Long live great friendships that came to you when you needed it the matter how late in the game.

and long live the ones that stick around and the ones you want to stick around for.
