So where did the decade go?

So far, my last 24 hours of this decade have been spent by;
1. Being on msn from at least 12-12 am, and doing nothing on the laptop.
2. Reading "Angus, Thongs, and Full Frontal Snogging" at 3am. I got it for Christmas, and it's hilarious. I remember reading a bit from it back in Grade 7, but I never owned it or got past the first chapter. It's great.
3. Sleeping until around 10am, when my brother dearest woke me up and told me to get out of bed and say goodbye to my grandfather and his wife (not my grandma). Which I did of course, but adjusting to the sudden sunlight by the door was quite difficult. Now the house is ours again!
4. Having a complete Green Day rock out session in my room while getting ready for the day. Including massive headbanging and doing the whole shaking the hair in a circle thing. Never will I ever dance like that in public.
5. Going snowboarding into the front yard ditch with my brother, on his board. I've never boarded once in my life, but I've been skiing since I was really young. And I actually made it down each time without falling. Next pro boarder? We'll see ;). (haha, obviously not).

I still need to actually write down my New Years resolutions before tonight...
I know one of them is to start eating healthy again, especially after the holidays (uggggggh). Also, I need to procrastinate less. I have a whole list going on in my head, haha, but I'll narrow it down and summerize later.
So I wish you all a happy new year in advance, let's make it a good one :). But as if this decade's done already, they were like, my childhood years! Sigh. Ah well, I have a good feeling about the next decade, so many things are gonna be happening. Hah, I keep ranting.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!! xox :).

That's what you do, baby.

So guess who's taking up knitting? Oh yeah, yours truly. Haha, I swear I knew how to knit when I was a little kid, but I suppose after all those years I ended up forgeting. But anywhom, during today's holiday family dinner, my mum and my grandma taught me how to knit *thumbs up*. So now I'm in the process of making myself yet another (very simple) scarf. I'm quite excited actually, I'm getting the hang of it now. My yarn and whatnot is actually sitting by my laptop right right this moment. It's going to take forever to finish though, sigh.Current state of my scarf. I'm turning into an old lady already.
And speaking of my laptop, it was my baby's one year anniversary on Christmas day! Haha, I love my laptop, not gonna lie.
While I'm on the topic of my life at the moment, I went shopping today at the biggest mall in the city, and ohhh my god, there were some amazing deals going on. I spent the majority of my time (and money, hah), at Aritzia. I don't know if they have stores outside of Canada, but it's amazing. Mostly everything was still on sale from Boxing Day, thank goodness. But the amount of people in the store was insane. There was a super long lineup to the changerooms, and an even bigger one at the cash. I even willingly decided to try on the clothes in the "communal" change room... besides changing in front of like, 15 people and piling all your junk on the floor, it was actually decent, huge time saver. I ended up getting 3 tops, an oversized black tee, a purple/grey blended oversized tee (I'm really loving the loose look), and a flannel plaid button up, soooo comfy. All by TNA. I should really get pictures up eventually, I wouldn't mind getting some style/fashion stuff incorporated in here actually. And I got coverup and gold eyeshadow pigment at MAC. Their eyeshadows are brilliant.

Oh, and for the record, this is my 5th night on the couch, due to my room being taken by relatives -_-. The spare room's taken too, jeezy. Normally I don't mind being kicked out of my room for a couple nights (at least not too much), but it's getting borderline ridiculous. Gotta love family gatherings (I actually do, but I also want my room back. Badly.)

Hope you guys are doing well! :) xox.

Countdown To Christmas!

Hello everyone! :)
Christmas is exactly half an hour away where I am now... and I'm quite pumped.
I just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays while I had the time, holidays have been kind of busy...
But yeah, I hope you guys have a great one! Enjoy it :).
Just a few quick little updates de moi...

1. Gave myself another piercing on my ear, so now I have 3 in one earlobe and 1 in the other. Strange? Maybe just a bit... But I'm likin' it.
2. Had my first synchro show of the year. The team that I'm on is doing pretty well, and I was so proud of the team I coach, they're young and they're so cute and they totally rocked it :D. And here's a couple pictures of the crazy hair/makeup I had to do for the show, haha.

3. I was going crazy from school and was SO glad when holidays finally arrived. The last week was half great and half painful. We took a field trip for Science out of town, just like I did last year, which is always fun ;). The painful part was that for the very last period of the last day, I had to sit in class, and write my Physics unit test. Very freaking last thing I did before the holidays. It was absolutly brutal. Not to mention, I was kiiiiinda slacking school-wise recently, I was just exhausted. Glad I have time to recharge now.
4. I just rediscovered television a couple days ago. Just got a brand new tv in the renovated basement, and I was actually spending the night watching it. I haven't sat in front of the tv for hours in years. Literally.

But "chyeah", things are going fairly decently. Hope whoever's reading this is doing well too.
Best wishes, have an AMAZING Christmas!!
Oh, and ps, it's now 12:06, Dec. 25, aka, it's Christmas!!! Ahhhh! :)

Facebook Applications...?

Haha, this is from a couple months ago now, I was scrolling down my Facebook news feed (or whatever it's called now) and what do I come across?
Needless to say, it was pretty funny.
...but I'm definitely not stupid :).

Just thought I'd share that with "y'all" ;).

I need you so much closer.

Time passes too quickly. Make the most of it while you can.
Sometimes I miss being young, and sometimes I can't wait until I'm a little bit older.
Sometimes I miss the past, and sometimes I can't help but yearn for the future.
Start living for the now. Start living for the present. Because one day, in the future you've been yearning for, you'll be looking back on the days that have already passed you by. And you can't get those back.
Life's tricky sometimes.
Much love, xo.

You've Gotta Make It Happen

Gotta love totally lazy/messy/I-don't-care updos :) ...

Taken on webcam like 10 minutes ago... when I should be doing homework, of course. (Definitely a somewhat-lazy day)
