Even though it's quiet here this morning, I tossed and turned all night long. Poverty never lets you rest, the rumbling of my stomach and knowing I'll wake up to another day with no food is so overwhelming. In a country as rich as Canada it's almost impossible to believe one of it's own could experience these kinds of issues. It's not just your garden variety poverty either, it's the "I don't even have a box of Kraft Dinner" kind of poverty. It's the real deal. It's down and dirty poverty.
Oh, yeah! Canada won the GOLD in Women's hockey! Effing fantastic. I've been watching their games all along, and I was so proud of how well they were doing and then tonight they did not disappoint at all. I'm just super proud of them =)
So today was Canada day.
It was fun.
We went out to eat and then went to this big town-wide event
There were fireworks at 10:00, I got there at 8:30, so for and hour and a half I walked around.
There were cheap fairground rides, didn't go on many.
I saw a bunch of people there I knew
Including the hawt Gr8 that i mentioned a couple of entries ago.
This weekend is going to be so awesome. I can't wait. I'm going to Canada with a couple of friends to go to bars and go to the casino. I'm thinking the latter before the former. I don't think drinking should be mixed with gambling. I haven't really done anything exciting lately so this is going to be really fun.
When it is finally morning, when the birds have seen the sunrise and decided the sky is sufficiently bright, I have been opening my eyes these past few days to see what at first glance appears to be a glorious painting sitting underneath the pane of my window.
