Canada!

Probably not taken in Canada.

According to my calendar, I have been back 25 days. Thoughts? I have a ton of free time and you might be able to guess whether or not I am being productive with all of this surplus time. (I am not) I find it hard to get motivated without some sort of structure or deadline. I love sleeping in so waking up early doesn't hold a lot of logic to me. Going out more than I should and not feeling 100% most mornings/afternoons probably doesn't help. Just read a blog post about work and people trying to work less/find a balance. Check it out: http://www.wanderingearl.com/theres-nothing-wrong-with-a-40-hour-workweek/


Highlights: Tremblant:
Conditions may not have been as shown...

Hitting up Tremblant solo. Even though I forgot my winter jacket at home, it just does not occur to me to even think about jackets, 25 runs were open, pretty good conditions and not busy at all. Woke up just after 5, took 2 hours to get there and stayed until after 3. Wasn't sure I would like going solo but I really did. You can go on whatever run you want, take a break whenever you want and don't have to be super outgoing and friendly (that sounds very Scrooge-esk doesn't it?) and leave when you get tired. 
Didn't even realized this is the food I missed the most until I had it for breakfast at like 7am in TO. People look at you in 2 different ways. 1-Disgust. 

2-Envy
Also had one of these gems last night that made me pretty happy:


Another aspect that I LOVE about being back is starting random conversations with people (girls) about what they do, blah blah blah and just wait anxiously for them to ask me about my life. Game over. Really love talking to random people about it, nice to be a bit more interesting than I was when I left. I don't remember random girls coming and talking to me before I left, not sure if it is some sort of vibe I send out now but I find it way easier to have girls come up and talk to me and easy to maintain conversations now. Which I like more than I should mainly because in my town I don't really get to talk to new girls everyday due to their above average Thai language skills.
Will be happy to go back and play with kids again. 50% sure they will remember me.

There are a few things I don't like but will leave that for another post, which will motivate me to be productive for at least 30 min at some point during this week. Leaving May 14th so if you haven't gotten your Bert time in, I will be gone in no time and my brother tells me not to be dramatic but probably won't be back for awhile after this visit. Enjoy your almost completely ENGLISH speaking week EVERYONE!!


How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant of the weak and the strong. Because someday in life you will have been all of these.

Maybe my favorite country song right now:
