Time:5:26 am.
I've finally visited my parents hometown, Italy. Its so beautiful. I love seeing the mountains in the backround of every direction. I spent about two and a half weeks of my life there thinking it would be a whole lot different, and it was. But people are people. They get up in the morning, go to work, hang out with friends, go for coffee in the evening, and live. They meet their mates, get married, move out together, have kids, and go on with their lives. Why can't I do that? I realized it doesn't matter where you are, its not the people around you, its yourself. I don't think I know how to date a guy anymore. I'm just so awkward when a guy shows any interest in me, and then of course he looses interest. I don't know. I seriously think somethings wrong with me. I go after the guys who tell me straight up that they don't want a relationship. We fool around, and for some reason I keeps my hopes up that these guys will eventually want to start something more. But no, it never gets beyond the sheets. Like really, what am I doing? I went out with some friends today, and a really nice, cute guy that they wanted to set me up with. He was interested, but I rarely showed interest throughout the night. An ex co-worker came in the other day to my work and he married some girl that was below his phsyical standards, and all he said was, "There comes a time in your life when we all just need to settle down.". I can't settle cause I only show interest in the wrong guys, and at my age, there's not much options left. Everyone my age is either already married or engaged or serious with someone, or they have serious issues and that's why they're single. I am, I feel alone. Will I feel like this forever? Isn't there any good guys left? Urgh! I'm so frustrated.

Subject:Welcoming 2008
Time:4:25 pm.
It's been almost a year since I posted on here.
Alot has happened. Alot has been learned.
I am no longer engaged. Someone says they love you, they tell you to trust them, and they will be there for you forever; then they fuck you over. Never trust anyone, sometimes not even your self. Take one day at a time. Whatever happens tommorrow is then and not now. Think about the moment, think about now. Think about yourself. Can't trust anyone after you have given all your trust into someone who says they love you and just stops. Can't do it. Not possible. The mind is one tormenting tool. The heart is even more painful. I'm hoping 2008 will be a new start. If I never here that name again, it will be too soon. I got hurt twice in 2007. Tried to regain myself three times after that, and realized it just wasnt worth it. No more men for me for one whole year. I need to find myself. Clear my mind. Concentrate on one new thing at a time. First off, I'll get my licence. Then take a few courses in school--learn a bit about the human mind; maybe some travel and tourism; accounting. I want to travel some more. Quit smoking. Help the world in some way--volunteer somewhere; donate a bunch of money that I don't have; donate blood.
Five goals that I have set. I have one year (plenty of time) to accomplish these goals. No room for men. Men just fuck with my mind. Let me rephrase that, BOYS fuck with my mind. This year, I just want a clear mind set. I'll deal with men again in 2009. Till then, It's all about ME!!!!

Happy New Years!!!

Time:11:23 am.
Went to Finger Eleven concert with Leeann, Cristina, and her bro. It was pretty fun. We moshed for a little bit (havent done that in ages). Also met some guy from London on the bus who recited us this poem that he apparently wrote. Went something like this:

If only I could be a tear drop
dripping from your eye
touching your cheek
and dying on your lips

He may have said it a little differnt, but it was sweet.
(sounds a lot like an old 'Saved By the Bell' episode!)

I think tommorrow is the marijuana march. I'm debating whether I should attend or not.
Kinda wanted to see the Spider Man 3 movie with Terry.

Subject:I want a gecko!
Time:4:16 pm.
Saturday, Terry and I went to check out banquet halls again. We really liked Le Jardin, so we went back there and got them to lower the price to $105/head, plus they threw in free chair covers and free champagne for the toast. I really want to have my wedding there, it's gorgeous.
Afterwards, on our way to Wegs Sports Bar, we decided to check out Repitila http://www.reptilia.org/. This place is awesome! It's litterally a zoo. They also have a reptile/souvenir shop in the entrance where we got to pet a snake, well I did, Terry held it.
I took some pics from the zoo part.

The quality isn't the greatest due to the fact that they were all taken from a camera phone, but it's better than nothing.

Subject:update on my life:
Time:1:35 pm.
Mood: worried.
- It has been 3 months and 8 days since I've last touched a cigarette. My lungs feel a lot cleaner. I'm so happy that I've finally quit. Congrats to me!

- I went to check out a few banquet halls for the wedding. So far these were my estimates:

Le Jardin: $118/person http://www.lejardin.com
Paramount: $115/person http://bypeterandpauls.com/paramount/
* Supreme: $ 98/person http://www.supremebanquet.com/

*includes free chair covers and table spot lighting.

All three halls have more or less the same menus and open bar. We are estimating 300 guests.
My fiance and I originally wanted Paramount because it's beautiful. It's also different from the other halls I've been to--very modern; he also helped build it (put up the sheet metal).
Although, when we went to Le Jardin for an open house, we fell in love with it. Everything about it was gorgeous.
Then Supreme open house came along, and the price was really good. It just makes sense, financially.
Urgh, so confused. (any input on past experiences, at any of these halls, would help alot.)

- I now have facebook and I am sort of addicted to it.

I guess that's it for now.

Subject:Christmas 2006:
Time:12:53 pm.
Mood: mellow.
This year's Christmas was nice. We had like 20+ people at my house on Christmas Eve, and then maybe 10 returned on Christmas day. We all played Tombola and watched 24 hours of 'The Christmas Story' (we didn't actually watch 24 hours of it, even though it seemed like we did). Terry spent the night and opened gifts with us like he was already in the family.

We later went to see Emily who was visiting from Kentucky and staying at her mom's house for the holidays. It was nice; I miss my friend!

I enoyed my gifts and loved the memories. New Years is up next--can't wait!

Tommorow, Friday, October 13th.
Ah, memories. The last Friday, October 13th, that I can remember, was the night I went to see The Misfits at the Warehouse. I'm pretty sure there was a full moon too, or close to. Those were my young days. I feel so old now. I wasn't scared before. I would try anything, go anywhere, talk to anyone.

I'm almost 25. I need to save money for retirement, start a family, get married, buy a house, get a carreer going, finish school, etc.
Where is the adventures??? I've always just wanted to run away to some weird place and enjoy every little moment until I return home. Who has the time, or the money? Not I.

Maybe a Metallica concert will help me feel better. Oh James!! I miss Your music!!

Now, I shall go drink my tea, then do my laundry, then go to work.

Time:11:32 am.
It was a nice night yesterday, so I decided to walk home from work. When I came close to my house, I stopped to have a cig. I sat on a curb, placed my coffee beside me and continued talking on my cell. I'm there for about 5 minutes or so, then I look to my left and there is this little creature sitting beside me. I had no idea what it was, so I got up and ran and it chased me a little bit. It was soo small and so cute though. If I wasn't so jumpy because this little guy freaked me out, I might have just taken him home with me.
At first I thought it was a groundhog, or a gopher? It was so little, like the size of a rabbit, and had a small tail, brownish in colour, and cute.
I checked on the net, and I think it is a gopher cause it looked similar to this:

lol, imagine sitting on a curb and this little guy is sitting right next to you staring up at you.
And I was around a bunch of houses, it's not like I was in a forest or something.

(The llittle boy in the front pic is probably the smartest kid I have ever met. He knows everything about anything having to do with sports. He knows two years ago NHL schedual and tons of details of the Fifa World Cup, Wrestling, baseball, basketball, he knows it all. Not only that, this kid talks like hes 20 years old. He's telling us about how he had a talk with his girlfriend's father, and how this is his 22nd girlfirend. I asked him how old he was, he tells me '8 years old'.)

Time:3:16 pm.
So after work yesterday, Terry and I were enjoying the nice night weather outside of his car. We decided to start planing our Niagara Falls trip when my phone started to ring. I grabbed it from inside the car but missed the call. I then placed my phone on top of Terry's car.
Ha, little did I know that would be the last time I would ever see that phone again.
We got back in the car, started driving, and then Terry realized, "Hey, where's your phone?"
Fuck, I lost it. It most likely flew off the car and got run over by other vehicles. My poor poor phone.
I always knew I was attached to my cell phone, I mean, I had a cell since I was in like grade 6. I was the first of all my friends to own one, and always took such good care of all 9 that I owned.
This one was special though. It had pics of when I went fishing, and pics of the TML game, and other special pics.

Grrrr. Plus, I had to spend $400 on a new phone cause I can not go without a phone, and I refuse to degrade the phone that I had.

P.S. The missed call was from 'someone' from Air Georgia.
You know who you are.
Grrr to you calling me at that time!!!!!!!

Time:11:09 pm.
So Italy won!!! What a game. What a party! What a Zidane!!! Haha, poor guy.

My beautiful loving boyfriend (even though his team lost) took me and my friends to St. Clair the last four times that Italy won. Last night was jammed. Me and my friend standing out of the sunroof of his car blowing wistles and waving our flags (haha, geeks, but wait it gets better) blasting Queen, We are the Champions, on his radio. It was beautiful.

~ Denis Waitley ~

An E-card company wrote that on an E-card they sent to me for my birthday, and I liked it.

My birthday was this past Friday. There was about 15 of us that went to Casey's at Yorkdale for dinner, then most of us went Bowling afterwards. It was a lot of fun.

Here we are:

Subject:came home from work, did homework, nothing left to do. sux when you got no cash
Time:8:58 pm.
Mood: bored.
You Are Likely an Only Child

At your darkest moments, you feel frustrated.
At work and school, you do best when you're organizing.
When you love someone, you tend to worry about them.

In friendship, you are emotional and sympathetic.
Your ideal careers are: radio announcer, finance, teaching, ministry, and management.
You will leave your mark on the world with organizational leadership, maybe as the author of self-help books.

Actually, I'm the middle child!!


You Are a Mai Tai

You aren't a big drinker, but you'll drink if the atmosphere is festive.
And when you're drunk, watch out! You're easily carried away.

How You Life Your Life

You seem to be straight forward, but you keep a lot inside.
You're laid back and chill, but sometimes you care too much about what others think.
You tend to have one best friend you hang with, as opposed to many aquaintences.
Some of your past dreams have disappointed you, but you don't let it get you down.

How You Are In Love

You fall in love quickly and easily. And very often.

You give and take equally in relationships.

You tend to get very attached when you're with someone. You want to see your love all the time.

You're secretly hoping your partner will change for you.

You are fickle and tend to fall out of love easily. You bounce from romance to romance.

Subject:too cold to wake up this morning--no school. oops!
Time:11:23 am.
Mood: cold.
So Um ya, I really hate this coldness. I was loving that twighlight zone last week warm January weather, and now we're back to this shit. The furnace in my house died a few days ago, so last night in bed I was wearing long sleeved pajamas, two pairs of socks, the bed sheet, the comforter, a wool blanket, another comforter on top of that, plus an extra pillow in between all those sheets at the foot of my bed to keep my feet warm, and I was still cold. It felt like I was sleeping outside. Grrrrrr. I can't wait till the furnace guy comes (supposed to be today).

Friday, Terry and I are going to see 'Blue Rodeo' at Massey Hall. I've never been to that venue. I wonder if it's classy? It just so happens that the concert lands on our two year-sixth month anniversary. That's nice!
