Not My Usual
I like vodka. At least, that's what I always told people. What I really like is Smirnoff Ice -- the vodka coolers. I also like vodka when it's in mixed drinks, not just straight vodka. After the recent experience I had, I don't know if I'll be having vodka in any form for awhile.
I consider myself to have a wide range of interests when it comes to music. I can listen to any genre and be okay -- I grew up on country (from my dad and brother), plus the 80s (both my parents); I've been listening to foreign music since I started watching anime (age 11); I'm a 90s baby, so Britney and Christina and all pop music are staples; and my boyfriend has opened up my world to some rock and heavy metal, such as Sum-41 and Disturbed.
Gifting & Donating
I wrote a post recently about how I wish Christmas was ... or, more specifically, how I wish I was stronger in telling my family not to get me presents. I'd rather they donate $100 to charity than spend it on me, buying me STUFF I don't need. (And by "stuff", I mean you don't wanna know how many boxes of chocolates I received this year ... or how quickly I ate them.)
The Power of Unplugging
To start this off, let me give you a little backstory on how I discovered the power of unplugging for a day ... The first date I can recall actively leaving all of my technological devices off for an entire 24-hour period is January 21st, 2016. This was my 22nd birthday, and the 1-year anniversary of my cousin’s death.
"Dream as though you've never failed."
When I was in Grade 9, I took Leadership class. Our middle school only offered it for Grade 9s, as we were the oldest students in the school. We got to help with school assemblies, and other events (like Grade 6 Orientation Day, which was so fun!).
The Drew Barrymore Show
Drew Barrymore has been famous since her starring role in E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial. She's done a lot through her acting career, been in a variety of films -- Charlie's Angels, 50 First Dates, Ever After, Music and Lyrics ... I could go on, but with 40 years under her belt, you get the idea!
My Wish for Christmas
It's December 25th. I've been awake for three hours, my boyfriend is still fast asleep. The perfect time to reflect. 2020 has been quite the year, for everyone. It's brought about a lot of changes in general, but depending on where you are in the world it may have caused some massive holiday changes.
Creativity & Dogs
I've never wanted to own a dog. I didn't grow up with dogs in the house. The only interaction I ever had with them is when I'd go over to friends' houses, and they'd jump on me and try to lick my face ... I hated it.
