Cause for a Celebration


Well, I had my PFTs done locally today, and this is cause for another celebration folks. Hold onto your extremeties please.


Yup. That's right!

98 per fucking cent!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Dance with me people!

And this is ontop of having strep. pneumonia apparently? WOW! I FEEL FAB!!



You may be wondering why I am up at 7:38 in the morning.

Truth be told, I have been going to bed earlier these last few days and as a result, am not waking up at my usual 9-10am, which honestly, is better because it means i wake up and am ready for the day! Remember, greet each day like a puppy and I guess in true fashion, I am thus waking up at early hours just like one.

Anywho, onto my exciting news:

I GOT THE JOB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's only a reception job at the gym i go to ( a high end one though! If you watch the Young and Restless, it's kind've like that), but still...I'm one step closer to making my stamp on the world and contributing to society now! I'm elated! Over the mood! I beleive when word got to me that I got a 'glowing review" from them that I actually danced on the steps, thus inevitably dropping my phone in the process. I'm so excited to finally have something to do! YAY! It's 40 hours a week so I will be busy, but anyone who's been in my situation will know that this is so exciting, to finally be getting out of the house and having something to do. In a weird way, it takes me back to 3 summers' ago when I started this blog (that long already?) and I worked an office job...the early hours....long days...but that overall sensation of tiredness that greets you at the end. In a way, it is what I am looking forward to the most because it means I have accomplished something, that I have done something productive with my time and I have contributed somehow. I dunno...maybe I am a freak, but for those of you out there who hate your jobs, maybe take a little something from this and relish it for those of us who are/were trapped in their houses due to illness.

Don't get me wrong, I'm sure in no time I'll be like, "why did I want all my free time to end?", and will be complaining about how i have none, and all i do is work, but in this moment, I'm so excited to just be able to wake up in the morning and go, and get things done. I find I am happiest when I am out of the house doing something so lets hope that this good feeling about the job lasts! I CAN FEEL SPRING COMING!!!!!!!!!

So as a result, I beleive this calls for a celebration. I've had it in my mind these last few days that I would like to buy a flowy skirt. Where to get one (since it's the end of winter and all) remains to be seen, but i'm sure in time I will find one. I'm not sure of the dresswear for the job yet - if i'm wearing office attire (like dress pants and nice tops) or if i'll be dressed down like everyone else who wears official gym clothes (i'll be happy with either to be honest), so i guess i have to wait and see. So in the mean time, I will settle for a trip to Shoppers drugmart to buy some new blush and lipstick and/or gloss and maybe some eyeshadow.

Ca va?

Ca va! :)

On a creepy note, i was awoken this morning with that scary James Blunt song "Mad World" or w/e in my head, from that new movie "The Crazies" that's coming out.

That song is officially the epitome of creepy to me now. Wtf?


YAY FOR ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
