Finally some good news! Just what I've been looking for!
Again, I have to keep things vague, just for safe-keeping,
but at least there's a little bit of hope in the future.
So far today, I have:
Tidied up a little bit
Made lunch/dinner with enough for leftovers tomorrow
Cleaned and reorganized my hookah and shisha collection
Found the perfect gift for Van's birthday
Called into the phone company to sort out some issues
I feel pretty productive.
Work at 7 today, until 11, which is kind of shitty, but its hours, so I can't complain too much.
I also need to call Microsoft AGAIN because they've been charging my bank account for no reason.
Today I also found this article, which made my day and began step one to my "Hope in Humanity Restoration" project (which doesn't actually exist, by the way.)
This awesome guy named Dragan drunkenly jumped into the ocean off of a high-dive and killed an enormous shark that had previously killed a person and injured others. Apparently when he landed on it, he broke it's neck, killing it on impact. Definitely my kind of man.
I've been listening to these guys for years now. A lot of people don't recognize the name, either. Apparently they're pretty popular in Canada.
There music, I always find, is inspiring. Every time I listen to them, I feel like I learn something. The Weakerthans have a song for any moment of any day. For any feeling, any emotion and any situation.
2.Protest the Hero
Here is another band that I've been following for a few years now. Their album "Kezia" is my absolute favorite. I often choose them for long car rides. (They keep me awake!) They're one of the few heavy bands that I've discovered that actually have important lyrics. Important lyrics AND a concept album? From a metal band?! Yes, it is possible!
I don't really have a third, to be honest. I have my two favorites, then the rest that I really, really like are all pretty even!
12. Your Thoughts or Opinions on Harry Potter
Funny that you should ask, as we just spent Thanksgiving watching the first 6, then went to the movies the next day to see the 7th.
I grew up with Harry Potter (and Harry Potter grew up with me, actually). So, the entire series is very dear to me. Every book and every movie has been purchased or viewed on the first available day (except for this last one, actually, because I was traveling...) Basically, I freaking love the Harry Potter series.
