Coffee break!

On my route home from work today, a drunk bum told me to "piss off" (because I safely biked passed him?). But I soon forgot about the "Piss off lady, go tell your friends! Bradabraghh" when I rode past a parked Police car near my house. The front seats were occupied with two cops full on making out with each other. Yep, saw his hand groping her pony tail, full on necking action! Don't see that everyday. Kinda made me smile.

I got in! I got in! I got in! :D
I thought that small envelopes instead of big envelopes from academic institutes were scary, because small envelope= you suck. you are not going to our school ever.

BUT NO! This small envelope today means "Emily Carr here I come." :) And into 3rd year already too!!

Being in Vancouver on a spring day like this and having a new boyfriend... What could make me smile more?... this and an endless supply of mint chocolate chip ice cream, and a job would probably make me smile more. Maybe I'll get that next week. :) The colour pink makes one more optimistic.


I love eating mint chocolate chip ice cream while watching a good movie with my dad. Last week was The Darjeeling Ltd.

Cat. Seems like, apart from a sweet comment a stranger made today about my hair, my cat was one of the only things that cheered me up from a rather avoidably bad morning.

:) teehee

Snowy Barcelona!
Apparently it's slush now, but it snowed there over the weekend. Hard to believe eh?
This photo is taken by my friend Bronwyn who is living there right now :)

...Didn't feel like it was far away at all yesterday. Raining again today, but the Oscars are on tonight which is fab. So we're making a red velvet cake to celebrate and perhaps put on some diamonds and head for our neighbors' house to watch it in style. Unfortunately I wimped out a bit on the red food-colouring, so it doesn't quite look like this...

But it will taste probably just as good.
check out this pretty website and the Red Velvet Cake recipe...

The Calm...

Inhale. Right before...

And this morning, March 1st, en route to work. First day after the 17 days that changed Canadian history. Exhale.

Sorry if they're a little jumpy... I was on my bike and going fast then had to stop and take these (guess I'd fail the shooting component of Biathlon).


About Me

My photo
Barcelona, Catalunya, Spain
No, I didn't come to Barcelona because of THAT movie. (although it did fuel my obsession with this city, slightly). First time living away from home, away from Canada... Thinking it's gonna be an adventure. I want to share my ups and downs with you during my European get away, so enjoy. :)
