Hi Everyone,

I’m sorry for the delay everyone. I’ve been a little distracted with other things. Things along the line of girl issues, being really sick, and a social life. Well OK, maybe not a social life given how I’ve been really sick. But, in general you get what I’m talking about.

Anyway, this past November my roommate and I took on the challenge of growing beards for Movember. Movember is November for those of you who can’t do the conversion calendar wise (My brother.) Now I’m not going to say that my beard was the best. In fact after a couple of weeks or so it was starting to get quite scratchy. I didn’t think I minded facial hair. But the mustache kinda got to me after three weeks. But it’s a sacrifice I guess you have to make when you are doing it for a good cause.

Movember 2013: Day 1

Movember 2013: Day 1

From days 1-5 you can’t really tell a difference in appearance. By day 5 you can see the bare traces of a 5’o-clock shadow appear. For the first 3 photo’s I will have my shirt off as I was taking the pictures as soon as I was getting out of the shower.At the time I was doing it because a friend liked seeing me with no shirt on. (Was that too much?) After that you will see me in different shirts. I apologize if some of the wording and the line make it hard to see my beautiful face (:P Just Kidding.)

Movember 2013: Day 5

You can really see what I mean by day 5. Day 5 really shows the 5 O’clock shadow. Personally when it gets to this point I still don’t mind it. In fact I think it gives me some character makes me seem more grown up. Funny how I say that and yet I’m completely bragging about myself. Weird how that works. By day 5 usually my stubble has grown out enough that people start to notice it.And that it feels scratchy on my hand.

Movember 2013: Day 10

By day 10 you can definitely see the traces of my beard coming out. Usually by this point my mustache starts to get a little scratchy. Which is why I’m not a huge fan of mustaches but don’t mind beards. My favourite type of beard however is chinstraps. I think that they look cool and are professional. Another thing that I just noticed about the picture is that my hair gets longer in each one. (Well obviously, hair can’t stop growing) Let’s take a look at day 15.

And Voila! We have me in a shirt. I’m sorry if the pictures are a bit hard to see. I was using my snapchat camera which isn’t the greatest thing in the world. Whoa! There is a HUGE difference between Days 10-15. I guess my beard decided that it wanted to fill in all at once. In this pic you can almost start to see hair fill in my cheek bones as well. Starting to look kind of freaky actually. Don’t you agree?

Movember 2013: Day 20

Talk about FREAKKKYYYYY! It’s a beard. Would you look at that. It was right about this time actually that I started to get a bit annoyed by the mustache because it dripped down into my upper lip. Plus it tickled my noes slightly

Movember 2013: Day 25

Movember 2013: Day 25

I’m sorry this one isn’t great but it’s the only one I took from day 25. It was actually day 26. I forgot my phone at a friends house so I only got it back that day. Honestly I think the worst bit about that picture is the hair. Was it ever getting long at that point. I should really get more haircuts. But I guess I’m just too lazy to spend the money.

Movember 2013: Day 30

Movember 2013: Day 30

And finally Day 30. It was a slog and I definitely didn’t look great as my mother constantly told me during our Skype calls. I ignored her though on this part. At the end of Movember I asked many of my female friends who I spent a lot of time around if I looked OK. Most of them said it didn’t look too bad. I think some of them were lying as they couldn’t say it directly to my face when they said it. But regardless it was worth it.

Shaving it however that was a slog. Unfortunately I don’t have a picture on here. But if I remember when I’m on my other laptop I will upload it at the bottom.

Hope you all enjoyed my review of Movember. I promise I won’t keep track next year. Once is enough for me.

We all make mistakes. It’s a fact of being human. Everyone does it. I guess when you take into consideration that when people write blogs they write about personal stuff. Is that stuff sometimes questionable. Maybe it’s not the questionable, but how you broadcast that post to the public is how it can backfire on you.

If you all refer to my previous post “The New Me” I said some questionable things. I edited those things out to keep it more neutral. Let’s say that I don’t really know what happened and what came over me. I wrote that post back in November actually. It was right about the time that I was really upset and mad at life during a stretch I was going through. Don’t worry everyone I’m not going to off the deep end here. I worked it out.

That said to close out 2013 I was sick. Not outrageously but enough that my mother took me to the hospital. After that adventure I was seriously contemplating if I was going to come back for this semester. I was and am still feeling the side effects of it slightly. Kind of like a seriously long hangover if you ask me. But anyway, I was like if I get sick I’m going to be sick in Kamloops because being with my friends is much more important to me then staying stuck at home. In the end I think this will be the end I want.

However, that is not ruling out next year. I don’t honestly know what I want to do next year. I’m going to start looking in the newspapers and everything for places around Kamloops and jobs around here. Because I’d like to be in this region even if I’m not in school. But that’s a ways away yet. Essentially I am keeping myself steady by going day by day. Because I still am kind of confused as to what I want to do in university.

So….Let’s move forwards to 2014 shall we? (Wow 2014! It’s incredible. Many people didn’t expect us to live past 2012. (Serves them fools right) I’m really starting to feel old here.) 2014 started out better but then yesterday I got a bit of news. I won’t go into details because I don’t want to turn miserable like I was last time it happened. So let’s say that I am really banking on a good friend to bail me out of this one. Let’s say she is either going to be my saviour or my failure. (High standards no?)

Since I can’t really remember what the beginning of 2013 was like I can only guess that it was kind of like this one. However I do remember my birthday more clearly than the rest of the month. I will be putting this all into a different post that I hope will help you all understand. For those of you who want to read it will require a password which I will supply to those brave enough to dare to read it.

In all I really hope my birthday this year goes more smoothly than my one from last year. But to be blatantly honest…….I’d rather skip my birthday all together. I just don’t like celebrating them that much.

Take care for now everyone,

Hello Everyone,

First off before we start this post I’d like to wish everyone a belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

So to start:

I’m sorry to everyone, if you’ve been wondering where I’ve been the past month essentially. The thing is, when I went back home, to the Yukon for Christmas I didn’t really want to deal with anyone. Or anything for that matter. I just wanted to sit at home and play Xbox through the holidays. Also another reason I wanted to just ignore everything is to see if I could get over how I feel about this one girl I like.

My stress level has gone down considerably and I have moved on (hopefully) I will still have to deal with seeing her everyday but I think I can bear that because I know that I will never be the one for her. This is a tricky situation however, because I honestly don’t know what happened between the 2 of us. So I have a friend of mine trying to dig out the information I need to possibly mend the relationship.

I do have some New Year Resolutions however. They aren’t huge ones but they matter regardless.

Number 1: Get a Girlfriend. Yes, that is the big one. I’ve had two so far in my life each relationship has lasted 2.5 years. Which during High school is pretty good. I thought I had something going with this chick but that didn’t exactly pan out. I think I have a plan as to how to do this but I will see how it works. Anything is possible in 365 days.

Number 2: Do better in school. I guess for me this is a major challenge. I’ve always done the best I can in school. What has always been my downfall is exams. I do great on assignments, homework and other stuff. But the exam bit…..That’s where my downfall always has been and probably always will be.

Number 3: Most people think that talking about yourself is a bad thing. However, I have so many friends I’ve listened to over the years that I’ve kept my emotions bottled up inside me. Now I think that it’s time I found someone and it’s my turn to bitch.I’m not saying all the time. I’m just saying that when I need to talk I think instead of saying everything is fine I will say no it’s not and try and talk about it like I originally want.

Number 4: This is the one that I think will be hardest to accomplish but I think that if I work hard at it I can do it. The resolution is to get the first book of my novel series published. I know school and work will take up time but I think that if I really work at it. Maybe spend an hour or so a day I should be able to put together a novel that will sell decently.

My Goal for the resolutions is to accomplish 1,2, and 4. 3 is a bit of a wild card because it all depends on the day and what has happened. That sort of thing. So all I can say is Bring it on 2014!

Talk to you guys in a few days
