T-23 Days

I wanted to make a post about counting down to going home because I was listening to Pink's song titled who knew. It's a rather sad song but it made me think about everyone I love and how much I missed them back home. You know who you are, if you still read this. ha.

Quick Summary
Currently Reading: Coraline (from my sister's library)
Listening to: Bad Romance, Lady Gaga (on repeat)
Eating: Biscuits and coffee.
Craving: Sam Edelman Zoe boot (since forever)

Warning, the following is a rant and rave. Proceed at your own risk of boredom or simply my woes to be your entertainment for the night.
I'm currently juggling a full time schedule. Did I make it that way? Absolutely. Do I want it that way? I have no other choice. Can't afford to not have one of the three out of my life. My internship at FLARE has been amazing and I've been offered (also, I asked.) an extension for my last semester but at the same time I'm wanting to expand to fashion forecasting. Lucky for me, one of my teachers has the strings to pull me an awesome internship to really understand commercial trend forecasting. Fun! ha. Some people think otherwise. No biggie. And that would be in January, and as greedy as I am, I want both internships while working part time and going to school full time. Do-able? Absolutely. I'll just be so burnt out and I need to kiss ass at work to have the perfect schedule. Pressure is on for my last year and upcoming last semester to do as much as I can while I'm in school. ps: Buying test Thursday; I didn't even touch it. It's ok, because this whole weekend I've been scheduling dates with my couch and laptop watching CSI. Ha. Hey now. We all need a little time away from what we want to do in life, and crime scene investigating is a completely different world. Wow, that was lame. Anyways. Rant is over. I've cleared my head, this helped. Back to the goal. That's the thing, it keeps changing. Is that a good thing?

I'm obsessed with this.

T-46 days to chirstmas

This is the epitome of what being drunk on Christmas is! Hazy, bright lights and the warmest feeling being with family, friends and the boyfriend :) I can't wait to be home for the holidays. Hot beverages with the girls, strong liqueur with the cousins, sushi dates with dennis, and the best shopping destinations in Winnipeg, Value Village. Honestly, my theory behind why value village in winnipeg is way more amazing and a complete gold mine is legit. The value villages in Toronto suck because they've been robbed and rummaged by all the vintage stores that Winnipeg lacks. So while all the best vintage pieces in Winnipeg are actually still in the value villages is because Winnipeg lacks the number of vintage stores in comparison to Toronto. It's brilliant. As well as, I'm convinced that the immigrants that come to Winnipeg donate all their goods because the majority would like to integrate into the north american culture, so they buy into the american eagle and guess image. I'm just saying. So, I'm psyched to go home to see all my favourite stores, especially VV.
Good night.

it's seriously time to party

I've always wanted to host a party on a roof top! I have a balcony, but it's too small to bbq on, and I suppose having a bbq grill would help in realizing that dream. Ha. Anyways, I wanted to share that we (sister and cousin) bagged a new apartment! It's a town house with three floors, 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, 2 sky lights, and a recording room downstairs. Don't ask. The recording room isn't that spectacular, but it's so random to have. Anyway, our move in date is right before exams, which is perfect since exam time will be hectic and moving would be hell. Along with the good news of bagging the new apartment, I finally got a part time gig at Urban Outfitters. I'm psyched that I didn't have to settle working for a retail store that made me dress like a tool. Or worse, a cashier at a grocery store. Not to say it's a crummy job, but it has nothing to do with what I want to do in life. But I suppose any job at this point being a student is a means to an end.

I'm also hoping to go home earlier in December for christmas. My internship would end by then, we'll see if I'm offered an extention :) You'll be the second to know (first would be dennis) Anyways, I think I have everything in control again, income-wise. ha. I was literally so broke from May to present because of school. Graduating in June of next year is so amazing, but then there comes debt. bah.

live life for the moment. right?

Have a great week!

Take note how fabulous and fucking amazing they are.

I haven't updated this poor thing in awhile. It seems as if I decided to take my own reading week when other schools have, even though my school wasn't given a reading week. I've been busy with... I can't even recall. My cousin was away for the week and was able to visit home, oh how I miss Winnipeg. I can say that I watched the September Issue twice, once in theaters with my sister (of course I dragged her.) and the second time, thanks for Bryan Boy for his link to the whole documentary! It was just as amazing as the first time I watched it! I still haven't watched Coco Avant Chanel! Boo. Speaking of Chanel, my best friends back home gave me my christmas gift a little early. (thank you, thank you!) It's so beautiful and it's my first Chanel product! Buying into the world of unattainable luxury, although with cosmetic products, I feel like I can still be part of that glamorous world some how. Quatuor Boutons De Chanel, quad eye shadow packaged in this beautiful velvet pouch!!
Love you Charisse!

I'm looking forward to this week, for many reasons.
Have a great week everyone!
