little moments

My brother and I took Little Red (my old truck, for those of you who don’t know) for a trip to buy a Christmas tree. We haven’t had Christmas in our house since I was thirteen. I had set up a Christmas tree before I went to school and when I came home later that day my dad had taken it down saying that it took up too much room. That shocked the Christmas spirit outta me and I guess it took eight years for me to give a damn again. Also, Little Red is one of the sketchiest little trucks I ever did see. How the hell did I drive it for four years?
Boom, Christmas tree. And it’s a real one, look at that. Now that I’m done exams, I’m going to attend all the parties and drink all the spiked egg nog.
Happy Holidays, homies.

Bucket of things

Lately it seems that I’ve found so many new ways to procrastinate. One exam. I have one exam left in about an hour and a half, so I thought I’d make a list of all the things I’d rather be doing than cramming at a Starbucks surrounded by thirty different coloured pens and stacks on stacks on stacks of notes.

I came up with a bucket list of things I want to do before I well, kick the bucket (duh). Some of them are things I probably can accomplish by next summer, and few of them (read: most of them) will require a lot of extra funding.
I had a moment of clarity a week or so ago when I was thinking of all the things I wanted to do with my life. Some of my goals feel so ambitious that even I laugh at them, so I told myself that in another life time I would’ve done accomplished them. But then I realized quite stupidly that I only get one go at this living thing, so who cares about how ambitious my goals seem, I should be doing what I want. Cause really, we’re all rebels at heart who wanna stick our noses (and fingers) at the man (right? right??), and quite honestly these are the only rules that govern my life:

  1. Breathe, air is good
  2. Eat
  3. Sleep
  4. Learn how to take everything in stride
  5. Y
  6. O
  7. L
  8. O

I’m sorry about those last four rules but I thought it was kinda funny and like 100% the truth. So here’s my list I’ve compiled over the past few weeks leading up to exams.

1. Make it to Ireland (third time’s the charm?)
Call me unlucky but I’ve managed to book trips to Ireland twice and cancel them both. All this girl wants to do is drink a pint of Guinness at the Gravity Bar in Dublin, and walk around the Giant’s Causeway in the North. (imgur)
