I love you, for sentimental reasons

music: I am really into jazz lately this is a good mix if youre interested

photography: havent taken any pictures lately I dont usually in the winter because everything looks ugly in the city during the winter but who knows I may go out and find the ugliest part of toronto in the winter

fitness: still working out all the time but eating healthy is getting hard this time of year... Im trying though!

criminal minds quoted this poem by robert frost and I really liked it so I thought Id share it...

Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening
Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

so check one two one two one two

music: I am really into childish gambino right now and his new album "camp" its unreal. Also, my friend nate is in this band called pocket city and I saw one of their shows on thursday and it was amazing. Their sound is so unique because of all the different instruments they have going on (bass, electric guitar, rhythm guitar, saxophone, key board, drums and a dj) Their singer not only sings but raps too. They are really great. and I saw craig cardiff (who is one of my favourite folk artists) in st catharines a week ago and he was fantastic as always.

photography: so, at the pocket city show I took a ton of pictures they turned out alright Im not happy with them but they are okay. its fun taking pictures using the actual light provided in the room opposed to using a flash all the time.

fitness: BOOM! I somehow am getting myself to the gym everyday excluding thursdays. I alternate my routine too. one day Ill do weights then 30min on the treadmill then weights again and then the next day ill just run on the treadmill for an hour and do abs... its great! and all I eat is fruit pretty much so that helps too

you aint gotta 'nuff money

music: okay so I have been in party mood due to the end of the year and me moving out so I've been jamming so some more mainstream stuff... I am currently obsessed with et by katy perry, look at me now by chris brown lil wayne and busta rhymes and get big by dorrough

photography: got some good shots from my cousin's fiance's wedding shower but not much else Im slacking so hard...

fitness: failing so hard... I got sick, which never happens but because of that I hadnt been eating therefore no energy therefore no working out... not that I could anyway... I have a wicked cough that makes it hard to breathe while sitting down let alone while running but I told myself Id try and troop it to the gym tomorrow and get my life back on track now that Im done exams

come pick me up

music: so last night was the juno awards and it was kind of boring to say the least. I like a lot of canadian music but none of the artists I like performed or anything so that was lame. I found out that a lot of bands and singers I like are canadian which made me like them more. I love the sound of jacob hoggard and dallas green's voices... they are just so talented I love listening to them! I just heard the song come pick me up by ryan adams recently... its real good go listen to it

health/fitness: the plateau is continuing... I need to switch it up or something... its what I eat that brings me down I feel... I am more fit then I thought I was... I realized this during a run on friday... it definitely raised my spirits a bit... I just have to eat like a rabbit for the rest of my life and Ill be set haha

photography: when the weather gets nice Ill go for a shoot and hopefully get something good... I love taking pictures at camp its my favourite place and a lot of my favourite pictures I've taken have been from there... my friend eleni is really good she inspires me haha

this is all for nizzow

a girl with a bird she found in the snow

alright so I feel like my blog is boring and my cousin emily ( gave me the idea to make it have a theme... so my blogs new theme is photography, health/fitness and music... we shall see how this goes... Im not an expert on either nor do I have any talent whatsoever in either category... but I'm trying to spice things up so I guess I'll see how it goes and have a blurb about each one to start...

music... is my and my roommates new favourite thing... its a site that gives you a playlist based on what mood you are in (I used to be into stereomood but they dont update their playlists often and 8tracks has more variety)... anyway I am really into mellow acoustic music however I find it hard to find new music so if anyone has suggestions I'm all ears

photography... I need ideas to take pictures... Im bored... I enjoy taking pictures of people preferably than random stuff outside

health and fitness... today my roommate and I went on a 5K run this morning... I impressed myself to be honest... I didnt think I would keep a good pace or run for as long as I did ... but I surprised myself on both fronts... so yay me... I also did pretty good on my diet today Id say... toast with margarine and a strawberry smoothie for breakfast (accidently skipped lunch) then vegetable soup and roast beef sandwich for dinner and popcorn for a snack later on... the popcorn was pretty healthy as far as snacks go... I made it on the stove with actual kernels and oil and put a bit of margarine and salt for taste... yum popcorn is so good!

hope everyone had a great st patricks day... I know everyone in waterloo was hurting the next day ahaha

everywhere I go, people hand me quarters and they pat me on the back, they treat me like I'm famous

I wish I was a musician...

that would be cool

except Im musically impaired... but it feels good when I attempt to sing like in the car or in the shower or whatever

there's nothing to do here but just wine and complain


Ive been slacking... sorry

well I have beef

no not a delicious cow carcass...

an issue, an issue that most people have, with the weather... its about that time of year where it just cant makeup its mind... and it annoying... yesterday it was raining and it made me happy because a) I love the rain and b) because it was warm enough that it rained and didnt snow...

then I came home from work and what happens? blizzard.


so I have twitter now and I really like it! its fun I feel like Im friends with celebrities haha as lame as that sounds

hmm what else?

Ive gotten into my fitness lately... since the winter break Ive lost 5 pounds, which is nice but I have hit some kind of plateau or a rut if you will... no matter im going to keep trying with my work outs and my healthier eating... thats what I struggle with the most... but Im trying and making progress which is good motivation


going back on the weather thing... the sun is out more often which is amazing I miss my vitamin d...

but I always thought that I'd see you again

so you know what is just awful?

say someone who you didnt expect had some cake... and first of all its a nice surprise that the person is even there and they have cake! and you guys are talking and catching up and you are really happy that this person is being so nice to you and they make it seem like they are leading up to give you this cake!

you didnt think you wanted the cake but the way the conversation is going, this wicked person wants to give you cake! Now that this is an option in your mind you really want it, even if you didnt earlier...

however the universe doesnt work like that... at least not for me... so this awesome person does have cake but no matter how much it seemed like this cake is for you from this person, its not. its for someone else... someone you didnt know this person even knew...


forgive me if that was hard to follow... but just know that this situation is real sucky and I dont wish anyone to be in this situation
