August 31, 2012

It’s so weird… today is the last day of August! I had to work today so I didn’t do anything all that interesting. What did you do?

Tomorrow is the first day of September, meaning my birthday is soon! September is my favourite month, always has been. 🙂

Goodbye August- Hello September.

Rain

August 28, 2012

Do you like rain?

I like the smell that comes after the rain, but I don’t like rain. It usually comes with wind, meaning it’s impossible to use an umbrella. So unless you have rain boots and a big poncho, you’re usually out of luck. Yesterday it rained on and off all day, to the point where it was terrential rain. It was not good!

What do you think?

Eat My Martini

August 27, 2012

For anyone who lives in or near Toronto (Ontario, Canada) and likes martinis, you should go to Eat My Martini. It is this great martini bar on College street in Little Italy that has over 130 different kinds of martinis!

They are delicious. I went there about a week and a half ago and was very impressed by the selection! I am going back today and I am excited to try more of them. If you decide to check it out, you can go to their website to see their martini list (they also have other drinks and food) http://www.eatmymartini.ca/

Check it out!

Life

Hi everyone,

I’m sorry I haven’t been posting a lot lately. I’ve been bored with my blog and haven’t had any good ideas of things to post so I’ve just been randomly posting. What I would like to do is go out and take some really good photos to post for you all, as well as checking out some new movies and music to review. Hopefully you all will enjoy it- I just have to get out and do it.

Aid For Abby

August 21, 2012

Good evening everyone!

I would like to make you all aware of a cause I have been following for a while now. There is a family living in the US who have had a very tough time. The mother is on disability and can not work outside of the home, and this past May she lost her partner. Her partner had welcomed her and her family into their home, and helped them with expenses, emotional support, and more. This woman (Benita), has a teenage son as well as a younger daughter named Abby, who has autism and OCD.

When her partner passed away, life became even tougher for the family and they are now in the process of losing their home. If you know someone with autism, or any other kind of mental disorder, you know that daily life can be very difficult, and change is not handled well. It hurts both Abby and her family. Benita is raising money through selling Abby’s artwork (she loves art), as well as home made dog biscuits (the family has 4 animals, including Abby’s therapy dog). She is also raising money through the website indiegogo. She is trying to raise $9000 for a down payment of the home they are residing in, which was her partner’s home. If she can raise the money for the home, she will be able to keep some stability in Abby’s life, and hopefully Abby can continue to make progress with her autism.

If you could all help her out in some way, she would really appreciate it, as would I. I don’t personally know this family, but I can’t stand to hear about people (or animals) suffering. Please check out the links below, share them with your loved ones, and donate if you can. Abby and Benita will be thankful. Every little bit helps.
