so in honour of harrison and i’s one year anniversary coming up and because i missed my beloved bloggers i decided to write a post.
so our one year is coming up next tuesday on march the fourth, im pretty excited but its a surprise so i have no idea what we’re doing and absolutely NO clue what to wear, ah a never ending issue. We just celebrated valentines day obviously which was super fun! i wrote him a letter for every day of february leading up to vday and put a nice drawing on the front of each, and i bought him lifesavers because he loves them, and i drew him nautical prints that would fit in his phone case and show on the back. he got me flowers and made me a really nice dinner, he cooked i cleaned and it was a jammin team effort which i love. i know some people arent really into valentines day and i get it yes guys and girls should both treat their significant others well all the time, but the fact is harrison does that for me and by no means, i dont think at least, do i take him for granted and vice versa. however it feels nice to go the extra step one day a year, yes hes brought me spontaneous flowers but it also feels nice to get them on valentines day anyways, flowers always make me feel nice and its a fun excuse for us to make homemadey and heartfelt things and remind each other even though we do everyday just how much we really love each other. ANYWAYS one year is coming up and it does not feel like it has been that long at all, feels like just yesterday we celebrated our 6 months in Halifax, regardless i still love him as much as i did when we first met now and its a wonderful feeling, and even if i wont marry him or hes not the one or whatever, or if he by some crazy chance is, i am incredibly lucky for having the chance to be with him and he is way more that i can ask for. you may think im crazy and so what if i dont “know” what love is, this feels pretty loving to me and regardless of the word used to describe it it is a wonderful feeling and i am very blessed.
we also just recently started a new semester at school and im taking almost all grade 12 courses except for english. i have a really amazing history teacher and i am really enjoying learning about the renaissance and all kinds of different historical people. i also have a very free thinking english teacher which is lovely and she makes me excited and willing to write, which i usually feel anyways, but i can already feel her helping me build as a writer. in terms of other classes theyre meh but its school what are ya going to do. i have also been trying not to procrastinate and its going semi well. i have put in a solid effort on all assignments i have handed in so far and havent put them off too too much and so far have gotten some of the results i was looking for. I also feel like this semester is going by slow fast, when i look we’re just over three weeks in and that kind of sucks, not to mention we have had like three snowdays so that probably helps me feel faster but its also almost march break and then the semester is practically half over so im wishy washy.
WINTER WINTER WINTER. so the other day i got back out on ski’s for the first time in two-three years and it was amazing, i had forgotten how much fun it is and harrison mom selena amber and i went on family day and it was beautiful. amber and selena are international students from china and it was ambers first time skiing, and selena had only been once or twice, so we got to teach them how to ski which was pretty fun. i have also been keeping up with the winter olympics because well basically who hasnt? canada did not do as well as in 2010, however we were on home ice then, and obviously this year we were still phenomenal. we came in third for medal count and we had an amazing womens hockey final, dominated the mens final, did great in bobsledding, curling, and many other things. i love watching how much pride canadians show in our country throughout the olympics and i love seeing people be successful after putting so much time money and passion into something the love. NOT TO MENTION how precious and adorable and amazing olympic commercials are, lets be honest proctor and gamble proud support of moms makes me a tear up a little every time.
