Today I was out an about downtown and being surrounded by beautiful weather and beautiful shiny new things made me hate the fact that I’m dead broke and need a job. The job issue is beginning to work out. I’ve been apply to a lot of places and today I had an interview at lululemon so hopefully that works out. However, until the job thing works out the dead broke thing will remain an issue. I don’t want to be dead broke because

a) that sucks

b) i won’t be able to eat next year and 

c) i will never be able to shop again

and when EVERYTHING that is out this spring is so painfully adorable and i want to buy it ALL it makes having no money completely and utterly unbearable. 

For example, I could probably buy absolutely everything at Urban Outfitters right now. The dresses are amazingly cute, the shirts are fab and there are so many scarves (and you know how i like scarves). Also, they have lots of great t-strap sandals out and they’re so great for summer and wow…i want to shop.

Also, there are some great skirts at the gap for this summer and there are so many colours to choose from and they’re just so frilly and fun and can be dressed up with a cute cardigan and nice flats or down with a pair of converse and an oversized shirt and scarf (like always). 

Additionally, I was in Urban Planet today randomly and there were SO MANY DRESSES THERE! It was insanity and they were so cheap! (which is excellent for a girl like me with no cash.) I’m definitely going to go back there when i have some money.

Finally, I found a store on Queen West that has the greatest shoe store ever with the moccasins i want. And they have SO MANY pairs of converse i was pretty much hyperventilating. 

Soooo I have a shopping addiction. 

In addition to Twilight. 

Speaking of vampires, i recently found this great band called Vampire Weekend (www.vampireweekend.com). They kind of remind me of a mix between the Arctic Monkeys and Bedouin Soundclash. It’s a really interesting sort of 80’s synth-rock mixed with island reggae jams. It’s really good! It’s definitely on the top of my summer playlist. 

Alright…I’m off to go continue obsessing now.

Before you, my life was a moonless night. Very dark, but there were stars- points of light and reason. And then you shot across my sky like a meteor. Suddenly everything was on fire, there was brilliancy, there was beauty. When you were gone, when the meteor had fallen over the horizon, everything went black. Nothing had changed, but my eyes were blinded by the light. I couldn’t see the stars anymore, and there was no more reason for anything. – Edward Cullen

If I could dream at all, it would be about you. And I’m not ashamed of it. – Edward Cullen

It makes me… anxious to be away from you. I wasn’t joking when I asked you to try not to fall in the ocean or get run over last Thursday. I was distracted all weekend, worrying about you. – Edward Cullen

Bella, I couldn’t live with myself if I ever hurt you. You don’t know how it’s tortured me. The thought of you, still, white, cold – to never see you blush scarlet again, to never see that flash of intuition in your eyes when you see through my pretenses – it would be unendurable. You are the most important thing to me now. The most important thing to me ever. – Edward Cullen

Bella, I can’t live in a world where you don’t exist. – Edward Cullen

My heart hasn’t beat in almost ninety years, but this was different. It was like my heart was gone – like I was hollow. Like I’d left everything that was inside me here with you. – Edward Cullen

I love you. I want you. Right now. – Edward Cullen

But if you ever bring her back damaged again – and I don’t care whose fault it is; I don’t care if she merely trips, or if a meteor falls out of the sky and hits her in the head – if you return her to me in less than the perfect condition that I left her in, you will be running with three legs. Do you understand that, mongrel? – Edward Cullen

Isabella Swan? I promise to love you forever – every single day of forever. Will you marry me? – Edward Cullen

 I’m sorry. I was wrong. It’s much easier to have the proper perspective when I have you safely here. I go a little berserk when I try to leave you. – Edward Cullen

Look after my heart, I’ve left it with you. – Edward Cullen

Sleep, my Bella. Dream happy dreams. You are the only one who has ever touched my heart. It will always be yours. Sleep, my only love. – Edward Cullen


Is anyone else swooning yet?

The Twilight Saga, although amazing and pulls a close second to my beloved Harry Potter series, is absolute cruelty to girls everywhere. It essentially ensures that every single one of us will end up an old maid because we will forever be waiting for our Edward Cullen to show up and dazzle us the way he did Bella. 

It’s not fair.

I want a boy to dazzle me and tell me he can’t be without me. I want his only concern to be of my safety. I want him to watch over me every night, just to make sure i was still with him in the morning…

I want to be his moon, his meteor in the dark sky that was his life. 


Stephenie Meyer…thank you for making all of your female fans eternally single. You have made our expectations of men WAY too high.





I will forgive you, however, if you let me know where I can find myself an Edward Cullen. Just putting that out there. 🙂 





p.p.s. I actually have the hugest crush on Edward Cullen. I have that bubbly feeling in the pit of my stomach whenever I think of him and I feel like my heart’s in my throat. This is unhealthy. I need help.

In one week today, at this very moment, I will be home for the summer. Home for the summer… it’s almost unbelievable. I have two more exams (religious studies and english) and then I am finished my first year of university. 

Someone please pinch me. 

With two exams coming up, however, I have been rather unproductive. Today, after waking up at 11:30, going to get breakfast/lunch at the lazy scholar and watching youtube videos for a half-hour, I decided to start reading the book I bought on wednesday while studying/starbucks hopping around Kingston… Twilight.

Five hours and 500 or so pages later I am finished Twilight and I am completely and utterly obsessed. Don`t get me wrong, i`m not as obsessed as I am with Harry or anything; no book will ever break us up. But Twilight is definitely a nice fling and I cannot wait to get New Moon and Eclipse on my hands. I have that feeling in my chest right now…the one you get when you`re in love and know that your love is so close, yet so far away…

I need to get those books. 

So clearly you can see that I`m going absolutely mental and in the process I am totally putting off studying, which is not necessarily the best idea.

Too good.

Why did I have to buy Twilight in the middle of exams?

Such a bad idea.

Except wonderful at the same time.
