It’s around 5:45am. I’m sitting on the train on my way to work. My dad dropped me off at the station on his way to work, that was kind of him. Just a minute ago my ears were treated to the loudest explosion just after turning on my music thanks to not having lowered the volume after having set it on high so that I would not sleep through my alarm. Oops run-on. Anyway I was so annoyed.
Right now I’m not so much sleepy as I am lonely. I hate being awake so early as I’m just so used to my mom or sisters barging into my room either looking for clothes or conversation. Actually in the case of my mom, it’s nagging me to wake up so I wouldn’t be late to work. Anyway back to loneliness. I’m disappointed there’s nobody for me to text. I just want to talk to somebody! Anybody! It’s like the whole world’s asleep and I’m the only soul awake. Not true, I could very well bother the inhabitants on this train if I were that desperate for conversation but the guy next to me looks to be fast asleep and everyone else has this dead look in their eyes. Also I’m no good when it comes to initiating conversation with strangers- they gotta talk to me first.
Life’s been good lately. Work’s been keeping me busy loading me up with projects and sending me out to cool events. Last week I attended the Vancouver Fashion Week Opening Gala and this week was the Interior Design Show opening party. I never thought working at a start up would grant me such opportunities but am so grateful it has.
I’m also excited to announce that I’m involved in this really cool project.. that I unfortunately must keep secret for now. I will say that it involves me and some really cool people I’ve only just met and that I’ll be working with them on some really cool things. We had our first meeting on Wednesday and all I can tell at this stage is that I will be stepping out of my comfort zone as well as stepping up in my creative abilities. Being on the cusp of something big is always exciting, I can’t wait until I can say more!
I’m almost at my stop now. It appears I’m a half hour early… great. Time to look for Starbucks.

We don’t talk very often but when we do, you inspire me. You inspire me by your kindness and inclusivity. You inspire me by your quiet, yet powerful approach to day-to-day living. You inspire me by the way you live life. I feel so, so blessed to have crossed paths with you. Also you take lovely photos.
I have 20 fresh mosquito bites from a recent beach excursion and I want to cut my leg off! It’s so painful!
Meanwhile three of my close friends have shared with me their pains. One is heading off to train for the marine corps, another is dealing with betrayal and the last is coping with a tragic loss. Pain is relative. But how strange that it can be relieved and made insignificant when put on a spectrum. Suddenly these bites don’t feel painful at all.
