I am a big ball of laziness during the summer. I literally don't want to do anything... I'm fine staying at home all day for weeks at a time, although I guess that's not really a socially acceptable thing to do. I actually just don't do anything all day. I'm not even exaggerating. I lounge around on my couch, doing nothing of particular importance on my laptop or watching whatever happens to be on TV.

I did get out of my house this past weekend, and my friend joked that the summer is when I recharge from a long school year. True that.

As I have painted myself as an entirely lazy creature, I feel like I should backtrack a tiny bit and somewhat redeem myself. I did try searching for a job earlier this summer, but I pretty much just gave up on that. Can someone please tell me how you're supposed to apply for a job that requires some experience in a related field if all similar jobs ask for some experience? YOU CAN'T. IT'S IMPOSSIBLE. Maybe it's because I'm too picky. I pretty much refuse to do retail because my work experience at a clothing store was enough retail for the rest of my life.

I am learning Spanish though. I know that I'm living in Canada and Spanish is not an official language, but I enjoy Spanish much more than French. It's way easier to speak Spanish. When I speak Spanish, I feel like I'm an old Spanish lady in a small little house cooking a nice meal. Possibly because the speaker I listen to is female.

Let it go, let it roll right off your shoulders,

Don't you know the hardest part is over?

Let it in, let your clarity define you

In the end we will only just remember how it feels.

I guess this is a post about closing doors and opening a few new ones. I've switched blogging platforms. I think this fits with the theme, right? Several reasons for the change, but it's not that important. I also got my own domain, which was a pain in the butt to set up. I made it out alive, and that's all that matters.

I haven't really written a post in a while. Well actually, I have, but then I've just deleted any progress I made. Truthfully, it's scary to have my thoughts and feelings down somewhere because I feel like once it's written, I can't escape from it. Plus other people (a.k.a. you) can read it, and I guess that's kind of weird (but cool as well).
