My farm on Farm Town

Thursday, August 27th, 2009

Not to be confused with Farmville, which is I understand is a completely different place.

I’m waiting for my mom get home from work so I can hire her to harvest all my fields that are ready to go.

I know it’s kinda (or extremely) pathetic to be so excited about a facebook app of all things, but I think my farm looks pretty great. Note that my level is already “SUPERB FARMER.”

Vacations are great

I had such a great time while I was gone. Wow. I will post some links to some fun things that I did and suggestions for a trip out to Nova Scotia I hope sometime this week, but for now it’s good to be back. I am reinvigorated and refocussed! Fun things comin up in the future I’ll tell you. I don’t want to be on the computer too much right now on sunday night because I feel like computers/high tech communication devices suck my soul from me at the moment. There will be plenty of time at work all day tomorrow to make nice with my laptop again. That sort of sounds dirty, but you know what I mean. Sheesh, get your minds out of the gutter.

To tide you over, this is Andrew covering U2 for Pat & Holly at their wedding in Mahone Bay. NS. I was there!

When did I become such a wimp?

I used to be so tough! People would say, “Watch out for Sarah, sure she’s small, but you don’t want to mess with her! You’ll regret it!” And it’s true. I was ruthless if you crossed me! I don’t know what happened, but I gotta get that back pronto. That has become priority one, I think. It’s really important. Don’t step on me, OK?! From now on!

We’re out monkeying around…

I think I’m starting to like Toronto again and looking on the brightside

Monday, August 3rd, 2009

It’s not so bad. The people here are very attractive, the streets are fun to ride bikes on, and most places you’d ever want to go to are very close. Being back in the city is not bad at all, not one bit. Now is definitely a time to be positive and so I will make a list of 5 things that make me happy, even though I think I’ve done this before and they were similar items oh well:

  1. When people on the street ask me for directions like I’m a local or something. That’s great. And even better when I know where to direct them. So good.
  2. Leaving town on the weekends. As much as the big smoke is pretty ok like I’ve said, having access to various wonderlands and people to visit close by means there is no reason to spend days off in the city.
  3. The idea of things getting better. When you can tell you’re on an uphill rather than a downhill and you have far off things that you’re looking forward to and you can look at the past and see how you’ve grown, that’s the best.
  4. People that are good to you and you are good to them. Those friends and family that are unconditional and wonderful and you don’t have to think about it because we are just so great together.
  5. Driving a car with a GPS. I really suggest this to you because it’s so awesome to drive somewhere you have never been before, for example the Buffalo-Niagara Int’l airport, using a GPS to navigate. Just really great and fun to do believe me.
