Tomorrow will be another special day

Tomorrow - Another special day - It reminds me that there are no mountains we can't cross... that warriors always fight till the end, that there are no fights that aren't worth it, and that angels are always around to help and support us... those are our friends, family, loved ones, angels and the ONE above us. I feel blessed.

Emotions burst

Suddenly, in the middle of doing chores my mind wandered...

It is almost that time. After waiting for so many years, we are almost there.
in less than 20hrs I will be waiting for an answer. the answer that would set me "free".

Was it worth it? I keep asking myself. Or was it a curse?

Don't know how to feel. It's a mixture of happiness and sadness. It is the end of a long frustrating chapter and the beginning of a new one that promises... nothing.

I think what saddens me most is that tomorrow, while it should be a joyful moment, I fear it is going to be the beginning of a good bye that I do not want.

profound thought of the day...

What's is your goal?

Swans are evil! - I know it!

Just a couple of days a go, my friend Bill sent me a link about swans... He must have remembered one of my stories which i'm about to share with you.

Coincidentally, just this weekend as i was cleaning my room, I found the flyers I kept to remember this shocking experience. I must have known that one day I would retell the story to you.

Just to put this blog as a placeholder, I will keep you entertained with the link my friend sent me, which just happened and confirms my tale that Swans ARE NOT the pretty creatures we were taught they are!

Happening spots - Oysters - Is this the new thing?

Recently, seems like everyone is going to Essex for their $1 oysters special. If not their mussels night or their $16 lobster night. Most nights come with a 1/2 off Drinks specials.
I've tried their oyster and lobster night. It's obviously a great deal, just don't expect a huge lobster.
the oysters night? what can i say, $1 is great... if you feel like spending a bit more, try their tastier $1.50 oysters or adventure out the seafood stream and try the duck. it was delish!
for more info Check out their site

Another hot spot? seems like people are heading to this $10 all you can eat oyster Thursday night. or $20 all you can drink. (I wonder what kind of alcohol they serve)Haven't been there, but I will keep you posted!
For more info Check out this site Btw, this is also in LES.

3 months later...

In the past 3 months I've been up and down, left and right, busy, busy, very busy...
my social life has grown exponentially and my work life is luckily full of projects. The days become night and the nights become day without at second to rest.

But it wasn't until this Saturday, when i went to celebrate a friends birthday at a Spa that i realized... that only then, during that one hour deep tissue massage, i had for the first time - in a long time - some quiet time for myself.

I wondered if the busy life i was living, the one i purposedly searched and took onto as a routine was in part a defense mechanism to replace the emptiness in my new life and escape from the truth. Either way, I do think it's been great to be out and see what others are doing.

I learned that I wasn't the only one, and like me, many are searching.

Well, I think i'm ready now. I'm ready to face the truth. I'm ready to rest.
only that, that painful part of my life keeps appearing in front of me and confusing me all the time...

I've never felt so good!

It's a difficult feeling to describe; I feel good.

I finally had the courage to face something that i've tried to escape.
In many ways, I made any excuse possible to avoid the truth. I tried to "fix" the problem, I tried to wait and hoped the situation would change. Just like that time passed, and just like that I let time go to waste.

Today I set myself up to face the problem once again. and when i was at the pinnacle I almost let it pass again. But something changed. Finally, the part of me that said - enough is enough, came out. Just like that I ran out to face the truth.

I'm glad it happened. for better or for worst i have stood up for what i believe, feel and want.
I've never felt so sure that what I have done today is a good thing.

I've Got the Running Bug

My sister was making fun of me the other day... What type of sports is she now in???
well, it should come to no surprise that I would add Running to my sports adventures.

In my last post i said i was hoping to run a 5K... well, i'm glad to report that i've done a 5K, a 10K, a 12K and now i'm aiming towards a half marathon in September! pretty good isnt?

The first time I ran the 5K it was one of the coldest day of the year. Thanks to great gear, gloves and hat, i was able to stay warm and finish the race ahead of my goal time. At the end of the race, I felt great. I felt i had achieved something great.
Just check out my video and you'll see what i mean.

My third race was a 10K - the Scotland homecoming race. It was soaking wet, cold and windy. The trick to last in this nasty weather is to wear just enough clothes to run, a poncho that covers you head, put vaseline on your feet, wear your socks, wrap each foot in a plastic bag and tie it lightly with a rubber band. Trust me, it works. I got the advise from a friend who is a Marathon freak.

so, as you can see, i've got the running bug.
