this is usually around the time..

This is usually around the time that I get ready to go back to school, historically. Those of you who know me are aware that I graduated from business school / college in June, and as such, I will be taking at least this year off from school to work, save up, and travel. I was going to use the word ‘hopefully’ in there but it is completely inevitable now, seeing as how that is what I want to do and there’s no good reason why I shouldn’t.
It’s been about 11 years since I travelled outside of the Northwest. The furthest I’ve been since then is Oregon about 8 years ago. I really like this area of the world, but I need to see more after all this time of school and work and all the stuff in between.

whut the?

Lately I’ve been posting pictures instead of writing .. I’m getting lazy! Luckily (or unluckily if you’re someone else) I’ve noticed what I have been doing, and have decided to just write for at least this entry.
Tonight I’m going to go swimming at Oak Bay Rec with Craig. I like Oak Bay Recreation Center. (Is that ‘Center’ or ‘Centre’?) They have a Water Slide and a rope and a hot tub and a sauna etc. After that we’re gonna come back to my place and spin choons! chooooons!

Oh no, I have crumbled. (picture by Tyson)

travelling on


I don’t think I’ve ever been up at 6 a.m. on a Saturday morning before. Not that I don’t like mornings.. I quite do, but I’d rather stay up for them rather than get up for them. I’m a night person.. apparently that isn’t normal and stuff, but I always have been. I was born at 2 a.m. on May 23rd, 1978. I was BORN a night person.. haha. 🙂

waterslides here i come

I haven’t been to the all-fun waterslides in some time.. in fact, I was probably in a different age range price bracket the last time I went.
Tonight is Debauch 2.. something I have very much been looking forward to since last year’s event. It’ll be a trance outdoor party somewhere near duncan / lake cowichan. The weather looks like it’s going to be great (knocks on wood) and I cant wait! Here’s the info:

not so blue

Today was one of Those Days. You know, the days where you’re unable to figure out why you feel so incredibly lethargic.. and it makes you feel more lethargic. Ugh!
So anyways. Myself and Jim wandered slowly around town, taking our time and dragging our feet. Eating nachos at Smitty’s probably didn’t help. It was one of those days that would have been far better served at Durrance Lake.
I was in pajamas by midnight last night. So I should’ve gotten some good sleep, in theory.. but I didn’t. I stayed up until 3 not really doing anything. What the hell is that all about?! 3 hours EVAPORATED on me. WTF. I bet this doesn’t happen to anyone else.. roffle. 🙂
My head is a bit of a jumble today so I’m going to leave it at that. The words just are not coming to me to describe the way I’m feeling.

Nepalese Bliss

Today is the day that myself, jim and ria go to the Sooke Potholes. Take my word for it, the ‘Potholes’ themselves are a lot prettier than the Sooke Potholes website. It’s supposed to be the hottest day of the year for Victoria (how do They predict These Things?) and I’ll be damned if I’m anywhere else but the Potholes for it.
