Well. This month was interesting to say the least. I’m a single lady now. Got a promotion at work that I’m super excited about. Lots of high highs and low lows. But I’m going to focus on the fun stuff, so here we go!
Paint Nite: Our last date before Luke decided to peace out of my life. But I try not to think of it that way. I had a nice time making this piece of art that is probably one of my favourite creations, so it was a win.
Tattoo: Yes! I had three goals for this year and a new tattoo was one of them. So now I can cross this off my list. The watercolour fireworks are so beautiful, I love the way it turned out!
Drinks with friends: Because that’s what you do when you need to vent about a stupid ex boy-person. My sister, my girl friends, everyone was inviting me out to get a drink and rant about boys. Which was awesome and super reassuring. I love my friends.
I guess this is a continuation of the prior point. My friends from work have been super awesome and supportive as well – getting me out of the house so I don’t have to sit and wallow. I’ve gotten a whole lot more social, and have been out with them a lot this month, meeting more people… having a good time and having them there to take care of me has been great, and does not go unappreciated.
Erika’s birthday: You guys my little sister turned 21 this month. It’s so weird to think that the girl who is perpetually 16 in my mind is in her twenties now. We went out dancing with my dad, which was a ton of fun and a great way to spend the night.
Simple Plan: This is the second time bestie and I have seen Simple Plan together. They always put on a great show, and it was so much fun to get to dance and scream along to our favourite tunes from our youth! I’ll be posting about the concert in more detail soon, so keep an eye out!
The Zolas: I’d literally never heard of this band before my friend asked me to go with him to the show, but I’m not one to say no to free shows and a night out. I had a great time getting to know the band and soaking up their music. Again, I’m going to post a more full blog post about the show later on!
St. Patrick’s Day: Guys, I’m 25 and I’ve never done anything for St. Paddy’s Day ever in my life. This was the first year I went to a party and had green Jell-O shots and did the whole thing. You can imagine how well that went. I didn’t make myself sick though, so I consider this a successful first St. Paddy’s.
You know when you start talking to someone and it’s just so easy, and you enjoy every minute with them, and you never get bored of being around them, so you just end up hanging out all the time?
Emo Night: Emo Night at Sneaky Dee’s in Toronto is literally my new favourite discovery (besides the Arkells. I’m still obsessed with the Arkells). But I dragged my friend out to go dancing to the tunes that have populated my iPod since 2006 and had suuuch a good time! Will definitely be going back.
Book of Mormon: My friend Rebecca and I tried our luck at the Book of Mormon lottery, and got front row centre tickets! We saw the show together the first time it was in Toronto a few years ago, and to be able to see it from the front row was so cool. We also sat right behind the conductor, so I spent like half the show watching the band, which was a new theatre experience for me.
I think I’m finally realizing that even though I’m shy, I’m actually an extrovert who thoroughly enjoys being around other people and gains my energy by socializing.
Things have been super hectic, but I love being busy and I can’t wait to do even more fun things in the months to come!
