after i do a walk thru of a bar and leave a girl chases me down. i am all like hell yeahs; girls don’t approach me like that (outside of winnipeg.)
that is not exactly what happened, but she appoached me after i was in the pub. and we talked on the street corner. i had no friends there, her friends hadn’t shown up, yet. i had intended on going and writing, spending some time alone. i did not really want to be alone, but with not certain people, and with live music.
i played it cool.
i only have eleven sleeps until i get on my first of 3 planes to get to india!
today: what a day.
work ‘went’ (for lack of a better word.)
BUT after work i had dinner with my new family. my third new family in manitoba. the first family that i got to pick for myself. family one is host family and accountabilibuddy, the program assigned them to me. i am not complaining about who i was put with, but it was still out of my control. my second family is my real family. the ones that i share ancestral blood with (or married my relatives.) my new family is different; they were not assigned by heritage or preordained program conditions.
people keep asking me what i want to do when i finish cwy. and i don’t know.
so i was thinking, what combines horticulture, photography and learning languages?
the best answer that i came up with was to be a traveling flower photographer. (which would be seriously awesome.)
my catch phrase would be “botanize this.”
i am having a good day.
i just got a formal written warning.
but i am still having a good day. i am excited about the play tour i am going on tomorrow. i am anticipating the group respect and goal talk.
i am a few days past the third point in the program, and i have one warning. one out of a possible two. at this rate i will be kicked out of the program. i do not want that. and i think that this was a ridiculous warning to get. i understand why i got it. i understand that i had no choice.
well, i had a choice. my choices were to not go out and have fun, but i did that. and i tried to get home. i really did. 2 cabs were called. 2 cabs did not show up. that is when i choose to stay where i was: inside, sleepy and warm. i thought, briefly, about walking home, but it was below zero out, and by the time i had given up on the second cab it was around 4am. the walk would also have taken me close to an hour.
