In July I drove 16 hours by myself to Vancouver, and stayed with some old friends from Austria. One day we went down to White Rock, the town I was born in, and got burned sitting in the sun on the beach. Marvellous.
After Vancouver, I drove inland 7 hours by myself to Christina Lake. I stayed for a week with my grandparents at their cabin, and it was the hot, dry, dusty weather I was looking for.
FINALLY my two best friends, K and S, came back from Bali and Hong Kong in mid-July. For some reason, with them being gone I felt I had a license to go wild. When they returned, shit hit the fan and consequences made themselves felt. But everything worked out.
I spent quite a few summer weekends out at my neighbours farm, just puttering around on their old bike and tractor.
This is my sister D and our friend M, and he was always around our house. Eventually, K, S, and I started teasing them about dating. It isn't true, but they do make a cute couple.
Many festivals this summer.
I switched it up a bit this summer for work, and instead of waitressing at the cafe, I tried working in the kitchen. I LOVED IT so much. I made fabulous friends, got to make fabulous food, and was so busy and exhausted that I had no time for blogging.

But now school is in full swing, and I still have a year and a half left of my degree. I have a suspicion that I will be writing lots more, mainly as procrastination! Stories of my summer (of which I have many) will leak out soon, I am sure.


  1. There are Austrians in Vancouver?!

    If it's not too personal a question, what degree are you working toward?

    Good to have you back. The new blog layout is...a bit overwhelming, but I'm working through it.

  2. Postman!!!!!! I've missed you!
    Haha, no, I stayed with these Vancouverites in Austria for 3 months.
    My degree is a Classics major, and an Art and Design minor. Don't ask me what I want to do with it afterwards, because there are no jobs in the real adult world for degree's like mine.

    I know, I don't think I like the new layout either. This new Blogger thing is driving me nutso.

  3. Ah, okay. I got it backwards.

    Classics...classics, classics. Waitaminnit, I knew somebody in high school who got a Classics degree. She kind of reminds me of you, actually. Blonde, skinny, good dress sense, brain too big for her head. I believe she is attempting to teach with her degree. Did education never appeal to you?

    This layout is a lot better. But you're dang right about Blogger driving you nuts. If I knew more about HTML I could work wonders, but in the end I ran up a white flag and used one of the standard templates (with a few minor tweaks). Blargh...
