“I want adventure in the great wide somewhere”

…If you get the Disney reference then you had a childhood well spent.
Today has been a lazy catch up on homework kind of day, but I decided to go on an adventure in the middle of it. Because if making my sunburn worse wasn’t a good idea I don’t know what is!

Although I didn’t find where I wanted to go, I found a cool patch of forest with a nice view. I was happy. Not only that, but I also managed to avoid losing myself (I have a terrible sense of direction). …However, it becomes far less of a victory once you factor in the fact that I was probably ten minutes from a road and houses the entire time.

I think that might be one of my favourite things about where I live. It’s not a place I’m planning on staying in for too long post graduation, and it’s definitely a “have not” province, but it’s got the neatest little nooks and crannies in it. It’s not too hard to find a place to adventure to when you need a break.

The picture quality isn’t the best, but I didn’t feel like going to the bother of bringing a decent quality camera with me. Besides, with my iPod, I timed that I can walk to this place in less time than it takes to listen to all of a King Charles album. (It’s not an addiction and I can stop whenever I want.) I think sometime this summer I want to go out here and take good quality pictures though. Plus, it’s pretty shady under the trees, so it could be a good place to mess around with shutter speed and whatnot.

This weekend was a bit like a taste of summer. (Speaking of which, the new gelato place that just opened at the market is great, and you all should check it out.) Adventuring is starting to become a priority again, and that is happy making.




a simple past tense and past participle of spring.”
Looking forward to:
  • Relaxing in my new (self sewn) hammock.
  • Ignoring the fact that said hammock was made out far too stretchy a material, and as such I nearly am sitting on whatever surface the hammock is hung over whenever I get in. I really don’t care. It’s cozy, I don’t need much more to satisfy me.
  • Completely mutilating Regina Spektor and the Beatles as I try to play songs not meant for the guitar on the guitar.
  • The Hunger Games movie. I thouroughly appreciate that it will most likely be nowhere as good as the books. I  also understand that the casting is fairly unsatisfactory. All this said the ticket (which, yes my dear Murgles, I do need to pay you back for. ;P ) is currently placed in my ‘items of extreme value’ pile.
  • It would seem that the peolple with actual music taste in my Tech class are getting control of the music…perhaps this may mean the end of being assured that “I’m sexy and I know it.” If this actually does happen I could see my mornings becoming extrememly pretentious and a lot more enjoyable.
  • Adventuring around Uptown. The best part of the whole spring being sprung (carefully ignoring the freak snowstorm we suffered the other day) is that the whole idea of ‘being outside’ is suddenly a lot more enjoyable for people like me who don’t particularly care to be freezing.
  • Course selections for next fall. I’m one part looking forward to this, one part dreading it. On the one hand I’m really looking forwards to things like IB art and ‘real’ IB English and History (as opposed to pre-IB). On the other hand anything that has to do with making decisions that will affect my future has the potential to stress me out. Saying words like ‘University’ and ‘Actual Jobs That Pay Real Money’ around me tend to leave me a anxious little ball of non-springy nerves.

And on that note…

(How I do love the images that end up on my Tumblr dash so.)
