Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!!
This year, like almost every year, I made my own costume. Last year I found a DIY tutorial to make a bath loofah costume, and I decided to try it this year!

It's super simple! Here's a video on how to make it, as a link to another blog.

So far, I love this costume. It's simple, surprisingly warm and it makes me feel ridiculously girly!

What are you dressing up as this year? Do you usually make or buy your own costume?

Why I Don't Vote.

There's a municipal election coming up in Winnipeg and I will not be voting. People keep asking me why and I thought I would answer that.

I don't care about politics. Some people don't care about rap music or action movies, and I have no interest in politics. Never have. That being said, I know nothing of what's going on.
I don't even know who the candidates are,
I don't even know WHEN the election is!

I mean, I could definitely try and be interested, but I don't feel like it. I just can't be bothered. I've always hated those high school-type popularity contests and that's all politics are to me. Politicians never actually answer any questions and there's nothing I hate more than people who circle around and can't be straight up.
So my logic is, why would I go vote if I know less than nothing about what/who I would be voting for?

And yes, I do realize that every vote counts, that I would have no right to complain if I don't vote, and that's kind of the point....
Even just having a debate on why I don't vote and why I should vote irritates me, so why in the world would I sit listening to debates about taxes and fixing the roads?

The only reason I would vote for someone, Joe Bob, for example, is because my parents are telling me he's the right guy, but then again, I wouldn't be thinking for myself, now would I?

Anyway, that's just my two cents. You can judge me or try to convince me to go vote and tell me voting is important (I know it is), that's totally fine. Everyone is entitled to their opinion and this is mine.
Do you vote? Why or why not?

Tinder conversations

This is probably the overstatement of the year.... (photo credit)

So... I have Tinder. Not because I'm looking for a random hook up, but just because I'm bored. Honestly, to me it's just a game. I like talking to people and that seemed like an easy way to do it.

I can definitely say I have met some straaaaange people on this app. I've also had some pretty funny conversations. So I thought I would share some of these conversations!

Him: Do you come with the elephant?
Me: Lol I wish!
Him: Where do you get one, and why did you not keep it?
Me: In Thailand, and because they're too big to bring back in my suitcase.
Him: I would have it fl-- elephants can fly, right?
Me: I think so yeah. This one was really shy though. Something about having little wings....
Him: Dang, that sucks so much. Had an elephant and it wouldn't fly you home...


Him: Show me your elbows!


Him: I'll give you a rundown of my big move: I invite you for drinks at whatever local dump appeals to both of us*, you agree enthusiastically. We meet up, I charm you with my wit, you charm me with your exposed cleavage, I suggest we leave the bar. We head to a park (how convenient and romantic.) and proceed to get just drunk enough that if we were too hook up, there,d be no inhibition. We then head to my place, because I cleverly manipulated you into choosing a bar close to my house (note the * in the third line) and I introduce you to my cat. You're impressed that I still live at home. I'm impressed that your clothes are still on, you must be special, not like those other whores. We then proceed to my basement couch where we make vague thrusting motions on each other till I finish, (you probably won't have the chance) then I call you a cab. (It'll be easy to get one since it's four in the morning). At this point we say goodbye, only for you to wake up the next morning slightly disappointed with yourself!


Him: What are you studying?
Me: German and Film
Him: Oh I don't like that.

Even though *most* guys on there are just plain weird, there have definitely been some exceptions. I actually met two guys from there and they are definitely not weirdos (at least not the bad kind, because let's face it, we are all weirdos.)

It's Thanksgiving here in Canada!

There are so many things I am thankful for this year. There are things that never change, that I am always thankful for, like my family and my friends and being able to live in a country where I'm safe and that isn't at war.
And there are the recent things that I am also thankful for.
-Working at my new job. I love my new job and I actually enjoy going to work (and, I mean, the pay ain't bad either, so no one's complaining!).
-Thailand. This trip was absolutely amazing and I still can't believe how well it went. I met a lot of incredible people there and it's a trip I'll never forget.
-School. It may not be something recent, but I am so thankful for going to university. I really love learning and it's been great so far. I can't believe I'll be graduating this year already.
-Health. It's nothing new, but after being sick for so long, I definitely appreciate being healthy again and I'm so glad that it's over.

Happy Thanksgiving!
