April was a crazy month. I didn’t realize how busy it was until I looked back at my calendar. Let’s take a look at some of the highlights!
Emo Night: This actually was the last day of March, but I didn’t include it in my last month’s Muses post! I went with my friend (now boyfriend, but that’s to come), and it was such a great time. They played a lot of blink-182, Sum 41, and Green Day which I don’t particularly consider emo, but it was great. I’m a huge Green Day fan, so when they started playing Jesus of Suburbia, I got way too excited.
First date: Yes, yes. So “friend”, who became “best friend”, ended up becoming “guy I’m dating” pretty quick. This is Jacob. Our first date was really romantic, too, because we’d gone to Dave & Busters as one of our first hang-outs as friends, talking over a nice dinner and then playing video games and winning game tickets, but now we got to do it again and not be awkward or hold back from being cute. ❤
Bon Jovi: I got tickets to see Bon Jovi in Toronto off of Groupon, and I’m so glad I decided to get them. Because it was such an incredible show! Recap post to come in the next week or so!
Art Afternoon: I spent a day with my friend Theresa painting and creating art pieces out of shells and smashed plates. The idea originally came from the fact that I had some pent up anger about the recent breakup, so she suggested we take that out by throwing plates and making art. It was so much fun and surprisingly relaxing. I’m hoping to spend more time painting and doing art on my own in May.
Mini-putt: I’ve never visited this mini-putt course before, so it was nice to play on some new holes. Fun fact, Jacob kicks my ass at everything we do (bowling, pool), so when I narrowly beat him at this game, it made me feel a little bit better ;P
The Lockhart: I feel like I post about this at least every couple months. But this trip was nice because I went with my friend Frances, who first of all, had never been to the Lockhart before. But also, it was nice because we both had lots to catch up on. We had drinks and gossiped, and also, made plans as to when to book our upcoming 2017 vacation!
Photo shoots: My friend, Nikki, needed a model for her photography class, so I eagerly accepted the offer. As a photographer myself, I never get to be in front of the camera. So it was a lot of fun to get to be the model. We had a great shoot in graffiti alley too. I may use one of those photos as my new blog pic! (Cause it’s been a while since I’ve had blue hair, and probably gonna keep my blonde for a while).
Bestie’s birthday: One of my best friends, Christine, had her birthday at this awesome Japanese restaurant this past weekend. We made her order a samaurai sake bomb (pictured above – the giant bowl) which she took like a champ, and the food was delicious too. I had a great time!
This month has been kind of insane. I’ve actually been so busy with work (stuff I didn’t include in this blog post), and personal things, that I’m making May the month of relaxation. But I’m sure there will still be a few things to report back in May’s Michelle Muses!
