Gift Givers?

Happy Monday!
Hope you guys had a lovely Sunday.

The weather was good out here yesterday, so I took the opportunity to pop over to the mall for a little shopping.

It's my sisters birthday, excuse me, I mean 21st birthday {because those are different} this coming Friday and I have NO idea what to get her as a gift!
It's funny because, I love getting gifts and things for people. I don't know why. Maybe it's because I like getting things, or I like making people happy in any little way I can.
And I guess for me that translates to gift giving.
But its crazy because you would think by now I would have gotten used to this gift giving thing, and I would know off top what to get someone.
But, No.
This is my second trip to the mall, and I am still no further than I was the first time I went.

The birthday is this Friday, and I would really really love to make this girls day! Any Ideas?

What would you guys like to give/get for a 21st birthday? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! :)

Have a happy Week!

They Tried To Make Her Go To Rehab

It is just so sad to see and read about Amy Winehouse's passing. Death is really something we can never get used to. I had planned a post about something else, but when I heard about Amy Winehouse I guess all that went out the window.
I'm speechless to say the least.
I can't say I was a huge fan of her music or anything, but Amy was cool people. Most importantly she was a human being. I see a lot of people on twitter and facebook saying how all this is her fault and drug addicts deserve what comes their way, and what else did she expect?
I don't know, it's all just so sad. I don't think anyone deserves anything bad happening to them, especially something as terrible as death.
It's one thing to criticize drug addicts but it's another to think that their death is less important because of their drug use.
The way I see it, death is death. Whether you were hit by a car or you overdosed on pain killers, death is sad and should not be celebrated.
Rather celebrate the life someone lived.

Someone tweeted:

Another human being losing her life is sad. Amy was not a murderer or a rapist to deserve such nasty tweets from you perfect individuals!

How true.

As I said, I was not a huge fan, but here is to celebrating Amy Winehouse's life.

"I think we have to be aware that people are allowed to make mistakes" - Amy Winehouse

'I believe in casual sex. I know it's sad that I think cheating on people is fine. But I think it's like smoking a spliff. Oops, I've gobbed on myself!' - Amy Winehouse

'There's no point in saying anything but the truth. Because, at the end of the day, I don't have to answer to you, or my ex, or ... I shouldn't say God ... or a man in a suit from the record company. I have to answer to myself.' - Amy Winehouse

"You get straight men that are fu**ing big pussies like my ex-boyfriend, and gay men who are like, "Can I carry that for you? Take my jacket." And you wish they didn't like boys" - Amy Winehouse

'It's just my music. It's the only thing I have real dignity in in my life. That's the one area in my life where I can hold my head up and say, "No one can touch me." 'Cos no one can touch me!' - Amy Winehouse

“I don’t need help because if I can’t help myself I can’t be helped.” - Amy Winehouse

“It’s too much of a drinking culture, everything tastes better with a drink. Like, watch TV: glass of wine. Cooking dinner: glass of champagne. White wine vinegar hasn’t got white wine in it. Has it?” - Amy Winehouse

Reality Cheque

The past few weeks have been something out of a boring novel for me. If I had to sum it all up in a couple of words, I would say:
The real world aint so friendly after all.

When you are caged up in a box and all you see is the outside, it's hard to imagine anything else but what you see. Am I right?
Well, that's how it's been for me until recently.
I could not wait to start 'life', being done with school {for now} was just amazing, I wanted to get a job, could not wait to move out and find my own place to stay {away from the university}. Everything {in my head} just seemed so perfect.

Until, I had to actually start
A. looking for a job
B. finding a place to stay

So far, neither have come to my rescue so we can officially call it world 2 Lu3Lu 0

I don't know why I expected things to be so easy, maybe it's because I see other people do it and it seems pretty easy.
I have two friends that can find a place to stay just like that.
I have another friend that can get a job/position/anything just like that.
But when I try, not so much.

In all fairness, I have had opportunities presented to me, which I am thankful for, so on a scale of 1 to stranded I fair pretty well, but the only problem is I only get so far before the end of the road and to make it worse I didn't give myself enough time to do it all in.

Time is running out and the world is still showing me how good it is at what it does.
I'm just about ready to say 'cheque please' on this one and try again next time. Maybe then I can bring the right tools to fight the battle with the world.
Right now I'm low on confidence, motivation, hope, and energy
Hmmmm and here I thought I was ready to fight this one.

It's no wonder.

Have a great week!

Court charges, Rant and Rave & The Silver Lining

Court Charges

You're under arrest, and by you're I mean I'm

Charges: lying in last post and abandonment and neglect of own blog.

My Plea: guilty

My Sentence: apology to blogger friends, at least one post every two days, and 600 hours 'blogunity' service.

Court adjourned.

That should teach me, I know I.......

Rant and Rave

............. pretty much fibbed in my last post, I made a whole whoo hah about how I wouldn't be M.I.A no more, and then I went and did exactly that.
I don't know if I should blame it on the funk I have been in, or writers block. But one of those is seriously responsible for my lie.
In all fairness when I said I would not go M.I.A I really meant it, I was done with exams, I was feeling very chipper, the boy was coming to visit and all seemed right with the world. That was until I logged of the internet and I realized that I actually have no plan with my own life, and my life is in the hands of other people.
Right now, all I do is just wake up, live and go back to bed again. and repeat. everyday.
But the real decisions, those are made by people I don't even know, {okay some of these people I actually do know, they just happen to be older and wiser than me and they are given the name parents}
I mentioned in my last post that I was waiting for an internship, well that's one thing out of my hands and into the hands of someone else.
I just wait around for people to decide to reject or accept me and once that's done that determines my next move.
I guess that explains my funk. You know when they say if you want something, go out and get it. It really should be if you want something go out and ask someone who has it {because someone else definitely has it} and be nice enough so they can think about giving it to you.
But I guess everything is not so bad......

The Silver Lining

....... because every dark cloud has a silver lining right?
I don't know if it's called finding myself but I've been given the time to actually find out what I want out of my life. I guess maybe I am too young to say it's set in stone, but I definitely know the direction I want to head in and what I want to do. The how I am going to get there is a tricky part, luckily we are in the 21st century and we have million modes of transportation {see what I did there} Either way it's not the end of the world when one thing doesn't work out because there is something else that can help you get to where you want to go.

Happy Friday Everyone!
