Listy Friday

Posted on the 22 February 2013 by Karaevs @KaraEvs

- I’ve been feeling rather “blah” lately blog-wise. I don’t know if it’s a writing slump but I don’t have the drive or desire to post anything fun as of late. Anything that comes to mind is usually pretty boring, hence the decrease in posts. (Not that I posted a lot to being with.)

- Kyle’s birthday is next week Thursday! I’ve had a lot of fun shopping for his presents and planning his cake, so I can’t wait to surprise him the morning of his birthday.

- My mom, Isla and I are planning a trip to Vancouver at the end of April. You have NO idea how much I’m looking forward to this! I have a serious case of cabin fever, so it will be a nice, fun spring trip! Plans will include Ikea, the Lululemon factory outlet and visits with my brother and hopefully my wonderful friend Callie. Woo!

- I’m plotting ideas for a new tattoo. I have to wait until I’m no longer nursing Isla to get it since my artist won’t tattoo those who are pregnant or breastfeeding. I know what I’d like, but I have no idea where to put it. Do I want to build off of my cherry blossom tattoos and start a sleeve? Do I want it in an arbitrary location? Decisions, decisions.

- My grandpa has a girlfriend! At first I wasn’t too sure what to think since it hasn’t even been a year since my grandma passed away, but then I remembered that everyone heals in a different way and if he’s happy, then I’m happy. What’s nice is that he’s known this woman for a long time and she’s super nice. My grandma would be happy knowing he’s happy :)

- Next Wednesday (February 27) is Pink Shirt Day, a day where everyone is encouraged to wear a pink shirt and take a stand against bullying. I was bullied when I was younger and will even admit that I am guilty of being one as well. If I could take it all back, I would. I feel horrible about it now and it just goes to show how badly peer pressure can get to you. Regardless, I discovered the video below after the poet who wrote it (who’s also Canadian) was featured on the local news earlier this week. I encourage you to watch it; it’s just over 7 minutes long but it speaks volumes when it comes to bullying.

I’ll leave you with that for the weekend.

Happy Friday, everyone!
