Self Improvement

September 1st is in t-minus 2 hours.
I can't wait for a new month. A new semester. A new start.
I have no idea why I need a new month or season to motivate me but heck, I will take it because right now I feel like I am at the bottom of the barrel.

My last blog post was August 13th. I have consciously thought so many times: Shay, update your blog--it's been forever! It's not as if I am not on the computer everyday anyways. (Minus 5 days away with the girls - and thank god for that)!

But really...why should it matter if my blog is updated? Props to people who are interested and passionate and keep up with it. Currently I am just not in the right mind frame to continue at it. I am not in the right mind frame for anything right now. I swear if my head wasn't screwed on I would lose it. I have never felt and been more disorganized in my life. I have heaps of stuff I want and need to get done so badly. I want to focus on more relevant things in the scheme of my life.
Items such as family & friends. Putting in more time with the people who deserve it the most.
I want to work LESS and not make myself crazy over a job.
I want to put everything I have into school and get it COMPLETED.
The list honestly goes on and on and on and on and on. Those are just at the top.

That is where I am currently at. Going a little bit crazy with school and work coming up next week. I am going to take some time away from the blog to focus on a new and better ME. One who is much more with it and can achieve what she truly wants.
See you later

Rain Rain Go Away

Today was very sluggish feeling for me. I know it was because of the grey skies and rain outside. In many ways I enjoyed it though. Before babysitting Abbey in the afternoon I went on a shopping trip to find rain boots.

With our camping trip starting tomorrow I desperately needed to find a pair (Rain boots are a must bring according to the camp directors). Previous to camp I had been thinking about getting a pair but never had an actual reason to wear them. Besides to avoid the rain that is haha. I found a pair though that I am totally in love with and can't wait to wear come fall and winter. I don't know why I didn't decide to get a pair of rain boots sooner. They are so cute! They are coming with me to camp tomorrow!! Wooo Camp. Have an amazing week xoxo

Oh me Oh my

Where has the time gone??
One month of my life has flashed before my eyes...and I didn't even find time to blog about it.
Let me update you on what I have been doing!

First off, working, a lot. Abbey, Abbey, and more Abbey. It has been a lot of ups and downs but overall great, I wouldn't have it any other way. This upcoming Sunday we are going camping together to Zajac Ranch. I cannot wait! Zajac Ranch is a camp for kids with severe medical conditions. They give sick kids a chance to go away & have fun like any other neurotypical child.

On Wednesday, August 18th White Spot is donating $2 from every Pirate Pak sold to the Zajac Foundation. You can even buy adult sized Pirate Pak's on this day. We are all big kids at heart!!!!!!! Go out and get yourself a boat my friends. The cause is well worth it.

Besides WORK.

On July 25th I went to see Toby Keith in concert at Rogers Arena ( so bizarre calling it that ). Looking forward to seeing Michael Buble on
August 20th with my bestest, Alicia.

I conquered the Grouse Grind with a good friend of mine. It was not an easy climb by any means but the view at the top is so liberating that it is worth it. I would like to try and do it again before summer ends. We will see though!
Along with that I have taken up running with my best friends at our local track. It is a super great way to get into better shape and see the people I love most. xo

This past weekend I went to Osoyoos with my family and boyfriend. It was super nice to get away and have some fun and relax. We hung out in the lake everyday, rented a jet ski, visited local shops, bbq'd great food, and floated down a canal in nearby Penticton. I am so looking forward to heading back up there again. Here are a few photo's from my trip!

Local Fire in Osoyoos

My boyfriend and moi.

Jeff's massive welt/bruise, teehehe

Tasha's friends who stayed with us!

As for today I am working in the afternoon & then attending a birthday celebration for Alison. I cannot wait to see all the girls! I hope everyone is enjoying their summer's as much as I am. My next post will be much sooner, I promise.

Remember Me

Tonight I watched one of Robert Pattison's latest movies. And no, it was not of the Twilight Saga. The end of the movie had a twist that I did not see coming by any means. It even made me feel slightly ill, despite that the event occurred nearly 9 years ago. This movie really advises me to not waste time. Life is too short & you just don't know what can potentially happen. Don't waste time! Don't go to bed angry! Tell the people you love most that you LOVE them. Often. That is all.
Goodnight xoxo

Hola, Bonjour, Ciao!

Today is the beginning of another brand new week. My monday has unfortunately started off fairly sluggish. I blame the dreary weather that is pondering outside. This past weekend was a good combination of work & play though. I am very happy to have two more full days off before I start my summer job.Besides taking it easy this morning I did sign up for my Fall classes. Finally! I unfortunately will be taking night classes, long, night classes. But I will just half to suck it up and make it work. And it is only 2 classes after all. Enough with school though!

Today I am going to an afternoon yoga class with my friend James. Later on I think I am going to hang out with Alicia. She has officially gotten possession of her new place, congratulations Leesh!
I am hoping to check out a few upcoming movies soon. A few are still in book form but being released soon! These are some of my must see's:

What movies are on your list?!
