Sunrise and Love Letters

Alright, well there it is. Sorry for not putting the Directors Spot cafe in it. I completely forgot about it xD.

Enjoy the video... It's not my fav, but it was still fun.

Directors Spot

I don't usually write short blog posts. But here it is:


Just kidding. So I'm going to go to a tech rehearsal tomorrow for a play that's being held in a MOVIE THEATER!! How insane is that??? And they needed help behind the scene with music and mics and stuff and for some unknown reason the director called me. o-o

Someone please explain that to me.

Anyways, I'm super excited. I'm making a video about it so I'll post it here too, so y'all can see (y'all... heh... I hang around old texan folk too much).


P.S. On the note of the title, there's actually a café here now called the Directors Spot. It's amazing. I'll put it in the video xD

The Sea is a Good Place to Think of the Future

Wow... I don't think I've ever met that many people from the same place in one sitting. And the place... aah, take a wild guess... *cough*.

YEP! Halifax. Nova Scotia, actually. Seriously though! Two out of three people I talked to were either from Nova Scotia, lived there, went to school there, or have relatives that did at least one of the forementioned things. It's insane. Maybe it's a sign xD

No, but in all seriousness, everyone I talked to just went on about almost the exact same things- How it's such a beautiful city, and the people are lovely... very much like they are here, but it gets really cold and it's very fishy. They would ask me where I'm planning on going to university, and when I mention Dalhousie, they'd get this :0 face, and then go on about how it's one of the best schools in Canada and that's super awesome that I'm trying something new. Then I'd tell them that I want to go into Medical, and that if I did go to Dalhousie I'd be moving in with my boyfriend and would be getting a job... and I swear everyone was like "Oh that sounds like such a fantastic opportunity! But... what would your Mom do without you?"

Yeah that's pretty much my only concern at this point. But my spirits have never been lifted on such a specific subject in such a short time in... well, ever! It was super amazing and it made me happy. Now I just have to convince my Mom, and train Maya and Noah to take over my spot as the "responsible adult" in the family... *snort*

I'm so excited... this might actually work. And I've decided that the way I'm going to make sufficient funds to at least start college, will be by asking two or three couples/people I know down here that are fairly wealthy to sponsor me in my first years, and that once I've got my life on track and have all kinds of money from the medical system that I'd (of course) pay them back.  So, that's my plan. I just need to get the actual facts as in money wise and such. Also... this isn't set in stone. But the more I think about it and the more I talk to people the more I like the idea xD

Heh. I guess things are shaping up... slowly, but surely.

“The future is not a result of choices among alternative paths offered by the present, but a place that is created--created first in the mind and will, created next in activity. The future is not some place we are going to, but one we are creating.”

Let's just fly off to Neverland, and forget all this nonsense.

Bleh, I never know how to feel when going through an emotional roller coaster. It's like... I'm being tugged back and forth between logic and pure happiness. The simple truth that makes me want to smile like a baby with a toy, and then the ugly reality that makes me want to scream and through a tantrum- like said baby when the toy is taken away. I feel like my entire future depends on the choices I make in the next year and half (or so) and I don't know what my decisions are going to be.

Stupid decisions u.u

So, lets take a vote here! :D Help decide my future FOR ME!!! WOOOOO!
A) UdG- Skip four years of premed, practically free, close to home (I can't decide if this is a pro or a con)
B) Dalhousie (Halifax)- Great medical faculty, I'd be with Chris, beautiful town... something new.
C) Harvard- Mom would be happy.

Okay, that just gave me an idea. I'm gonna make a Pro-Con list right here, right now. Even though Chris wants to play Starcraft.
