tears in heaven

A dear, and beautiful soul left this world last night. Adam Mermuys was everything a person should be. Thoughtful, spiritual, kind, intellectual, hilarious, and downright wonderful to be around. His presence always brightened your day.

Words fall flat where emotions run high. There are no words to express what he meant to us, how much the world will miss him.

times like these

Well. This was me playing around with my camera during the holidays. People tell me I am obsessed with self portraits. This one, I was experimenting. Which, I guess, you could say is what I am doing out in Calgary. It has been my first true step out in to the real world on my own. Yes, I have been away from home before, but there was always a sense that I was being sheltered before. This time, I came out with Matt and am living with my sister and a friend. I have a job at a lovely Italian eatery named Buon Giorno's. Some may say I should leave all the details out, but then that would lessen my chances of having a stalker! Where is the fun in that?!
Calgary is beautiful, and surprising in many ways. But as I have stated on the ever-famous facebook, I don't believe it could be my home. I thought that with all the opportunities here that it would be easy to make a life in the city. It is not that things aren't nice here or are even terribly hard. Just different than I had been expecting. I am going to be here for a while no matter what. Matt ended up going to the oil fields, but my job isn't bad so far. I intend on making the best of my time in the west. I have good friends here and visitors coming and going, that would be hard not to enjoy!

how's it gonna be

I have had quite the time keeping up with this blog for a while. I know that it began as something to keep in touch with people, let them know what's up with me. However, I've been feeling private about my feelings. It's not because there is anything wrong, moreso it may be that things are fabulous right now and I don't want to make a big deal of it or jinx anything. You could say I am mildly superstitious. Knock on wood, LOL.

If anyone out there is wondering, I am finally a university graduate. Grad pics have yet to be taken, but that is a minor detail for now. The big thing on my plate for the holidays is recovering from having my wisdom teeth out. Once I am feeling 100% again, I will be planning and packing for the big move west. I am going with the flow of the nation right now to Calgary where hopefully many opportunities await. I can't wait.

As for home, Julie and Shaun just got here today. We watched Chevy Chase's Christmas Vacation - a must. And mostly the holidays have treated me well. Lots of family, friends, laughs, and fun(check for the pics). This is my favorite time of year after all. What I would change if I could is that I am missing loved ones so much. If I haven't already, I want to wish you all the warmest wishes for the season, and lots and lots of love.

be your own girl

I just got a really great compliment. I passed Ed MacDonald's office just now, and he stopped me to say that, although he hasn't yet read the letter from the Guardian the other day, a few people had asked him about it and said that it was good. Now, I love writing, but I don't often think it is that grand. However, just to hear him say that people thought it was well done is so exciting for me!

Of course, I owe it all to Ed for allowing me to take his class this semester. The artifactory was also a unique and fabulous opportunity. I knew from the start that if I got in to Applied History, it would make a great impact on me. It has, and I am thankful.

talking 'bout my generation

Girl talk. I used to have a lot of guy friends. Men are great, and funny and easygoing. But nothing can beat girl talk. I was just talking to LA and Jill on msn, with the three of us in one conversation. I miss them so much, and we have so much to talk about and laugh about. And catch up on. LA is in Toronto. Busy little beaver she is, and smart too. She is going to be one hell of a nurse when she is finished. And Jill is just getting settled out in Calgary. And I am sitting in the library computer lab, not doing my school work. There is plenty to get done. The history minute for my class will be exciting to finish. We are on to the editing part already. When it's all said and done, I will be a graduate of UPEI. I can't wait.

That is my update for now. I know it's not much. There will be more to come during the holidays I am sure.
