I Have Been A BAD BLOGGER And FOLLOWER!! P.S I Am Not Dead

Well friends, I do not even know where to start!!
I have been a very bad blogger and follower! I am very sorry to all my blog friends that I have been so neglectful and the thing is, I do not even have a good reason (other than full Harry Potter addiction) so I apologize if this blog is incredibly long and crazy all over the place!

Well where shall I begin? There was an earthquake here today!!! And you know what? I did not even feel it. I was in my weight watchers meeting and did not feel a thing yet when I got home everyones Facebook names were about the earthquake and it was all over the news. It was a 5.5 earthquake. K says it woke him up and that the bed was shaking and that the TV was moving and the cats tails were huge and they were freaking out. Isn't that crazy? I did not even feel it!!

Speaking of weight watchers, well...I have not been doing too great. I did not go last week to my meeting so I made sure to go this week even though I was feeling discouraged and beating myself up about eating poorly this past week. But I went anyways and I lost .4 not bad, but I want more! So I intend to track everything this week and my goal is a 1.4 pound loss at my next meeting on Wednesday the 30th! I am just mad at myself because I have been going for 8 weeks and only lost like 3.6 pounds. I want a 5 pound loss sticker darn it, and next week I will get it! I VOW TO IT! SO enough beating myself up about weight loss, I am tracking this week and sticking to program and I WILL get that sticker :) I joined Spark People which I am loving, it is a great way to track your calories and get good ideas so I am enjoying it. My goal I have set on it is to be 162 by Christmas Day which is 1 pound a week from now until then which I thought is realistic. My goal weight is 150-155 but I chose Christmas for my first goal because it will be the first time seeing my family and friends in 4 months since I will be far away at school so I want to look awesome and have them be proud of me! I am really nervous however about losing weight while at school, since that is where I gained it all to begin with HELP!

Speaking of school, there have been a couple of developments. I got into residence (yay) so I am excited about this but nervous. In first year I shared with 4 other girls and we had 2 bathrooms and a kitchen so it was fine, but now I am sharing bathrooms and a kitchen with a whole floor of people, I have never lived in a conventional residence before so I am nervous about this. I am also nervous about K and I living 4 hours apart. We have lived together since about a month into our relationship (crazy eh?) and have been apart for a total of about 10 days our whole relationship so I am really nervous and scared that we might not stay together, that would make me so so sad so I hope it does not happen. Never done the long distance thing before. In other school news we had to pick our schedules and I am scared school looks hard and I have been gone for over a year so I hope I do fine and I am also nervous about teaching, AHHH I AM JUST NERVOUS TO GO PERIOD! I have never been more than 2 hours away from my family and friends and K. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. Ok enough yelling about school. One more thing about school...I still do not know what the heck is going on with my loan. I mean I am pretty sure I will get it but I got this letter saying I could not get it for a year and all this CRAP. So I called the office and apparently I got a warning because when I went back for my second degree I got a loan but I decided not to continue with school, however I paid back the entire loan right away. But anyways I hope I get it or else I cannot go to school which would NOT be good. So keep your fingers crossed for me and my loan!

So I am in full Harry Potter obsession mode!!!!!!!! (If you have not read the books and are in the middle of them do not read on as I am saying things about people who die) I am on the 6th book and have about 200 pages left! I was soooooooooooooo sad in the 5th book when Sirius died OMG I was not happy at all he was my favourite. I am sure other people die (DON'T TELL ME) but Sirius made me sad. I want Ron and Hermione to date they clearly love each other, and Harry loves Ginny aww so cute. All I have been doing is reading non stop it is an addiction. I want to know what happens yet I do not know what I will do when the books are done and there aren't anymore to read! I think I might cry! I cannot wait to go to the Harry Potter park in Disney WOOT.

In other news I have started working at another grocery store. It is a lot smaller and the people are nicer. I still do NOT want to work in the grocery bizz anymore but whatever it is for 8 weeks, I can do it. I feel bad only working there for 8 weeks but you gotta do what you gotta do to pay the rent right?

Well this post is getting LONG, I am sure there are things I have not discussed but I promise I will not wait another month to post! Hope you guys are still out there!!

Blog award!

I almost forgot that Stefi over at gave me the Oh My Blog award (thanks girl)! So here are the rules of this award:
1. Get really excited that you got the coolest award ever!
2. Choose one of the following options of accepting the Oh My Blog! award:
(a) Get really drunk and blog for 15 minutes straight, or for as long as you can focus.
(b) Write about your most embarrassing moment.
(c) Write a “soundtrack of your childhood” post.
(d) Make your next blog a ‘vlog’/video blog where you’re basically talking to the camera about whatever.
(e) Take a picture of yourself first thing in the morning, before you do anything else (hair, make up, etc) and post it.
3. Pass the award onto at least three, but preferably more, awesome bloggers and let them know.

So number 1 I am super excited about this award, I am glad that people actually like reading what I write, it makes me happy!! :)

And since I do not drink (not in the last year anyways), nor know how to make a vlog I shall share one of my embarrassing moments with you all, and I have many! This has to do with sex so if you want to stop reading here feel free but it is pretty funny/gross/embarrassing! And K already knows about it so I am free to write it since it is not about him. So I had been dating a guy for about 6 months and we tried sleeping together a few times (lets just say he had a few mechanical issues that were not working) anyways, we finally got to it, and I could feel liquid like dripping all over me, I was thinking ok I guess he just is really sweating it is hot in here. WELL...I went into the bathroom after and had blood all over me!!!!! He had a nosebleed and apparently did not notice. I think this may have been more embarrassing for him but come on, I walked out of his bedroom covered in blood and his roommate was in the living room watching TV. lol. awesome.

My 3 people I nominate this award to are:
Allison over at
Whitney over at
Kimmi over at

Getting Real, More Harry and My Best Girls

Hello all,
It has been awhile and yes I have been avoiding, you know me! When I feel like I am not doing that well I hide but I am here to be accountable. I accomplished my goal of working out 4 times this past week, a record for me people I am shocked I did this. However, my eating was not good. I am talking candy, doritos, fritos, ruffles chips and pizza hut. Yes NOT GOOD. I think the boredom and loneliness here has got the better of me, I still do not know one person in this city and I spend most nights alone as K works nights. So I am just looking forward to going to school just to meet some people and then move back home to be closer to friends and family. But I need to learn not to eat my feelings, as my friend Sandra said to me tonight "feeling are not meant to be eaten, I don't think they would taste very good" ha ha she is right, well they do taste good but only momentarily. Today I woke up and did not want to go to my weight watchers meeting as I knew it would be a gain. All that hard work at the gym for nothing. So I skipped my meeting. But as the day went on I thought I cannot just run away from the scale, so I went to the afternoon meeting instead and I lost .2 which is virtually nothing. I just feel like such a failure. I have gone for 6 weeks and only lost 4 pounds, when most people have lost 15 or so in that time. It is because of my eating. So this weeks goal : gym 4 times, track everything and count my points, no chips and no pizza. So lets hope I do it. I want a better loss. I was not getting real with myself and sitting in my ww meeting tonight I knew I was not giving it my all. Well I am going to, I vow to it.

Still loving Harry Potter, I am 100 pages into the 5th book. I have never read a series before and man is it addicting. LOVE IT. I hate Snape, Voldemort, the Malfoys and Percy Weasley and I LOVE Sirius, Ron, Hermione and Hagrid!!!! Such a good story, cannot wait to read more, but will be sad when I am done reading them :(

Not much else to report. I am so lonely here ugh. I miss my best girl friends. I know most people have a group of friends but mine are all spread out. All in different places and all met in different places, some high school, some work, some university so they know of each other but are not friends with each other. Ugh I miss them all soooo much. Two of them are in a different province so I never ever see them but talk to them all the time online, but it is not enough. I want them to move back. I miss the times we used to spend together. And the others live back in my hometown so I am looking forward to being with them more once I move home. This move was a bad experience but it taught me a lot, like who are the most important to me and also that home is where the heart is, and this is not home.

I want to end this post with some pics of me and my 4 best girl friends, I love them and miss them!!

This is Crista, my best friend all through university. We were roomies from day 1 in residence until our last year. I have had sooo many laughs with her and great times and I miss her a lot. She always puts me in my place and tells me like it is and I need that in my life. LOVE HER!

This is Adrienne, we have been friends since we were 3. We were best friends all through middle school and high school. We have had our differences but we are still very close and are always there for each other. We had soo many sleep overs and talks and boy troubles and just everything you can think of, we have dealt with it!! Love her and miss her too!

These are 2 of my great friends Meghan and Sandra. Meghan and I were born on the same day in the same hospital and that is where our moms met, so we have been friends since day 1. But the girl in the middle is like my sister from another mother lol. We talk every single day for hours at a time LOVE HER! Def wouldn't have got through many things in life without her.>
This is Alison, we have been friends for about 5 years, love her. We have struggled through boys, university, and just life together. Pop and chip parties forever. This is us New Years right before it turned 2009, a fun night!

PS Is it wrong to admit that I like the Justin Bieber song "Baby"? OK don't answer that lol
