Drunk Blockus + Craig = Wine

Craig makes burning wine. It goes down real friendly. We decided to make some drunk trees to our friends. Linda was with us, and she found 8 bottles of fish and decided to swim them! It was seasoned.

Drunk madlibs with drunk friends are almost as fun as drunk blockus.

My expectations seem to outreach their realities lately. Lol, people always say I'm too pessimistic but sometimes it seems like I'm not pessimistic enough. I tend to approach new situations with what I consider a neutral state and I'm getting so tired of watching the results drag my perspective of them into the negative. I am more positive lately, so I don't let it affect me on the grand scale, and all this does remind me how lucky I am to have the good things that do pass my screening process. Very lucky. I guess it all ties in to that cultivation thing I was talking about earlier. It's all about what you keep. I wish I wanted to keep more, or maybe: I wish there was more worth keeping.

I'm going away for a while, I'll come back to this with fresh eyes.

I know most people are complaining, but I love this kind of weather. Warm enough, but with a cool breeze. Not the best for swimming at the beach, or any of that. But it's great for walks in St. Vital park with friends, or just wandering around downtown. I don't know why but the smell of the cool fall air coming in always makes me feel young again. Maybe it reminds me of Halloween. I'm not sure, but I dig it.

Photo to the left was taken by me at St.Vital park a few falls ago.

So long Mr. Hassel

I believe the secret to a great life is cultivation. It's a pretty simple concept, and with a bit of faith in yourself, it's easy to implement. When something good in life comes, allow it to stay, and if it isn't good, don't. Because if you have standards, the good things gravitate to each other, and you're one of those good things. But the same goes for the rest. The negatives gravitate to each other too. It's all about what you keep.

4:45 AM

Woke up early for the first time in a long time today because I had to go to some training thing at work. Not cool. All the shadows were on the wrong side of things, I'm used to being up in the afternoon! Got home at 7:00 and crashed by 8:00... And woke up at 3:00 AM. I'm so screwed.

Found an awesome band called Modwheelmood. It's a band of 2 people, one of them is in Trent Reznor's current Nine Inch Nails line up and the other is from The Abandoned Pools, the band responsible for the Clone High theme song! Their Pearls To Pigs volumes are awesome. So far there's 3. The cover of each just has 1, 2 and 3 dots respectively. I strongly recommend checking them out!

I just ruined 2 white shirts by washing them with my Rogers uniform. Now they're pink... Damn you Rogers Video. Now I must work several hours to replace those clothes which you destroyed!

Been meeting a lot of really cool people lately. Just been more open to new people and new experiences. Meeting all these new people who seem genuinely happy to be meeting me has made me feel pretty good about myself too.

But I think maybe I had things backwards for the longest time. I'd look for people to make me feel better about myself, and always come up short. But lately I've been realizing what I have to offer, and suddenly people spring up everywhere. People who know what they have to offer.

I have good friends, and I keep good company. Life is getting better all the time.
