Work and Travel Update!

Hey Lovelies!

So I apologise that I have failed on the blog-a-day in June but I have been picking up every single shift possible in order to attempt to save enough money to take a vacation!

So this is just a quick little update.

Along with this update I wanted to let you know that I love to travel and I have been travelling most of my life... actually all of my life and it is something I plan on doing for the rest of my life.

I don't claim to be an expert but I do know my fair share of tips and tricks.

Since I know some things I think I should share that with all of you. Hopefully I will even learn something new and different from you guys!

Been working on different posts for a long time! Hopefully these posts will be completed and included in this new travel series that I am hoping to begin soon!

Thanks for sticking around!

Happy Travelling,

Never Back Down
Never Give Up

Best Friends

Hey Lovlies!

So sometimes life happens... people drift but even when it happens it doesn't mean the relationship really changes.

Recently myself and a very very very important best friend of mine have been very distant. Let me just point out this is a really important person to me too. Someone that has been in my life for a solid 15 years. She means the world to me and I would do anything for her.

The reason I am sharing this with you is so that maybe you can learn something that we recently have learnt. We have been distant like I said and some pretty big fights happened and we were closer because of it. then  we had so much to do with life that we drifted.

We finally spoke the other day and it came up how much she still means to me and how she is still my sister. It seemed to be a little weird at first because she didnt think I still cared for her as much as I do and she didnt want to assume that i still did love her as much as always have.

The point of this post is so you all understand that having a best friend, having something that you can truly be yourself with, having someone that you completly trust and can tell anything and everything to is a rare thing to find and when you do find it you need to remember that it doesn't just dissappear, distance doesn't change what the two of you have together and that is something that you should always remember no matter what, don't find reasons to let it go because it never truly leaves you. If you do find yourself apart, get together just once, if it is that true friend I am talking about then one coffee together will be like no time passed, it will mean the world to both of you, believe me!

Our families are each others families, we need eachother, I know I have learnt that in the past few years and I hope she feels the same way. just talking to her again makes me feel like I have been missing something the last little while.

Boys come and go in my case, in her case he stayed! AHHH CONGRATS!
but the point is through everything we still have eachother and I don't plan on every letting that go.

With us it finally feels back to normal and we are both clear that this relationship won't ever end if either of us have a say in it!

I love you girl remember that!
You are my sister
my rock!
my lobster! (lol)
my person!
my one true confidant!

Never Back Down!
Never Give up!

Shopping Day Haul!!!

Hello Lovelies!

So glad blogger is letting my posts be saved and published again!!! Woooo!!!

Anywho today was a shopping day.

As some of you may know I recently moved quite a distance from civilization and in order to spend the day shopping I had to drive a solid hour to get even close to anything! After all that driving I finally arrived at a mall thank the lord! Did a lot of the returning and exchanging of things that I needed to and then it was lunch! Oh boy have I been craving Thai food recently! Mom nom!

After lunch I headed over to bath and body works were they were having a 50% off sale but all I got was a nice soap cover and two  yummy smelling soap!

Next Sirens!! Love that place! I picked up two amazing pairs of shoes for like 85% off each!!! I was so happy! They were regularly $35 and I got them for $5!!!!!! Ahhh!!!

I walked on over to David's Tea and got a cup of hot chocolate tea as well as a small pack of dark chocolate tea! Yummmmmmmy!

I think all in all it was a fairly good shopping day!!!

Never Back Down!
Never Give Up!

Work Journal #1 (June 2015)

Hello from the land crappy shifts!

Today was a whopper! I worked 10 glorious (NOT) hours! And the highlight of my day you ask? A kid that I told countless times to not play on the swings in the toddler park continued to NOT LISTEN TO ME! and ended up breaking it and falling. This is like an 11 year old on a 2 years olds swing... 

Yesterday on the other hand was amazing!!! All my family and friends came over and celebrated with me FINALLY graduating university. They were all so happy and my cousins and aunt were betting who knew me the best and when it came to gifts... And I was spoiled to say the least. I will have a grad haul of my non-personal stuff maybe Wednesday but no promises!!!

Everyone was eating and talking it was a really great day we even watched the Women's Soccer game! Go Canada!! and we watched part of the hockey game. All in all it was a day I will never forget!

So this week won't be as interesting as last to say the least but still it won't be boring. I work a few days but I am hoping to pick up a few extra shifts since I need to make up the two shifts I missed this past week due to graduation!

Sorry for the fact that this post was super short but its just been crazy! and with Blogger being so bad the last few days when it comes to letting me save posts I am just glad I was able to post!

I leave you with one of the bouquet of flowers I received for graduation!

Grad Day!! In My Life!

Hey My Loves!

How are you all today? Good? YAY! Me to!!!

Okay okay I'm done I will just write what you actually want to read now...


So about two days ago I posted about my nerves both for the graduation itself and then life after it. Of course I can't tell you any updates about life after grad as I literally just graduated but I can talk about the ceremony itself!

Yesterday I went downtown for my grad! I was so nervous all morning, my tummy was hurting and I was just stressing! I was afraid to fall and I didn't want to totally embarass myself but that wasn't something that I had to worry about! So my grad was at 2:30 but I left home around 9am, no that isn't to early because I live really far from campus! It took me about 2 1/2 hours to get there. So fast forward past all the driving and now its 11:30! I was confused as there were not all that many signs but I found the building and signed in, picked up my Regalia! It was so exciting because my school loves tradition and we don't have a grad cap! we have a hood!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So back outside! the weather has been so gross lately but yesterday... omg such a beautiful day!! sun was out it was hat but not crazy hot it was soo amazing!!!! Sorry i'm just so happy!!

So NEXT! I picked up my tickets for my family and then headed into the Plaza to look at some fun stuff! My parents decided to spoil me yesterday so they ended up getting me a dozen roses! A grad bear! A class of 2015 sweater and a class of 2015 water bottle. They also purchased a school frame for my diploma! It all looks amazing!!!! 

After all that I put on the regalia and the pictures began!! Omg like 400 pictures... I'm not complaining lots of memories but my face hurts!!!

Finally the actual graduation! It was super special because there were two special honorary graduates at my grad which is sooo special!! I am so happy that I got to be part of that!! It was amazing!!! I know I'm saying amazing a lot....

Mine turn to go up on stage and of course my luck he said the wrong name... The guy next to me (we both had the same last name) his name was right and my last name was right but apparently they thought my name was Mariana... How the hell do you get Mariana from Crystal!!!! But its okay I didn't go I told them I worked 5 years you will say my name right. The lady gave me attitude but he said my name wrong I refused. Once it was all good and our names were said properly we went up and yes I danced on stage!! 

After the ceremony was over we headed out and I got a picture with the dean and some professors and then me and my girls took pictures!! Two of these girls are so important to me! They literally got me through a lot and we have been together for a long time it was so awesome that we could all be together on such a big day!!!

Finally the day was over and we needed to attempt to take that brutal drive home! About an hour into the drive we stopped for dinner and celebrated just us three before finally getting home!!!
Today was a lot of fun and a day that I didn't have to worry so much about!

Now on to the rest of my life!!!!!!!!!

Never Back Down!

Blog-a-day In June Challenge!

Hey Hey Lovelies!!!

Welcome to JUNE!

Can you believe it? Its already June almost half way through 2015 already.

This month -since this blog is brand new- I have decided to do a little challenge where I am planning on writing and publishing a blog post every single day in June! This is very exciting for me since I have never tried this before even on my old blog! I think it will be great even though I am very worried about the last few days of the month since I will be extremely busy, but maybe I will find a way to write some posts a head of time so that I will be able to post them easily on the last few days!

I of course want to hear about some posts that you would want to read and if you follow me on Instagram @everything2nothingx then you will have since some sneak peaks at some up and coming posts! I am super excited to start this new and fresh month with an exciting challenge!

Sadly I will be working a lot this month but it should be simple enough to write a post a day each morning before work. I hope you all had an amazing May and that your June will be even more wonderful!

What blog posts would you like to see?

Never Back Down!
Never Give Up!
