What have I done?

So today’s blog is going to be about my summer / fall goals and why I’m up at 3am writing this blog. First off most of my summer I’ve spent working 60 or more hours a week, yea I know it’s CRAZY and I’m just about at my limit for working as well. And all of the shifts I’ve been basically working are night.  So that is why I’m up right now. But I have to get back to day shifts before Friday. I have no idea how I’m going to do this.  Lots of tea? Coffee? Mhmm defiantly. But besides work I’ve had a little list of things I’ve been wanting to get done or buy or do for the summer and upcoming fall. And I will post them in point form with a either a complete, changed, never mind or to be done following them…

  • Get my Fitness degree (in progress)

  • Get hair done (Complete :D)

  • Get my puppy fixed (To be done when she’s 8 months)

  • Fix my car or buy a new one… (Obviously haven’t done either yet but I’m planning on buying a new one and scraping this one that I have now)

  • Buy  a bike and start biking (Not done, probably won’t get done- instead purchasing a treadmill)

  • Start my book (Now I have 2 in mind and haven’t started writing but have an idea of characters and setting and plots. Book 1 – Dutchess and her puppy/ dog years. More for advice and humor. Book 2 – ah, this one is a top secret 🙂 but I’ll give a unobvious hint “Halloween & les monsters”

  • Start Fundraiser #3 ( Last year in school I did 2 for 2 different organizations: SPCA de Valleyfield and La Bouffe Additionell) And this year I want to do 2 more for 2 other organizations that is part of this lower Montreal region. I hand in mind a school supplies fundraiser for kids that go to Heritage and the French elementary school.  And maybe a fun day for the less privilege or a weekly FREE activities day (like Saturday) for all younger students. A day like this would promote having funny & being active& making friends or making stronger relationships in younger kids. I can’t even begin to explain how vital it is for children to have a strong social life; it affects them, their self esteem, and their self worth in a group and will highly affect how they will be when they are older in the real world. Remember were always stronger in numbers.  And this theory can be applied to most aspects of the human life.  *** Sorry for going all Psychological on you guys, it’s defiantly a high interest for mine.***

  • AH, a new Phone. This is something I need every 5-6 months. Phones are a love hate relationship. I love them, but when someone else pisses me off I end up throwing them (the hate being they hate me 🙂 if a phone had feelings) I want an Iphone or a black berry. And I’ve narrow it down to a black berry due to my phone commitment issues, Who cares if you throw your black berry –psh. But some people will look at you with death eyes if you were to throw your iphone !

  • And then there are all of those other goals, like stop drinking coffee(tried, failed), save money( I have :)), go shopping(haha this is a never ending goal of my life.), get a tattoo(When I graduate college :)), go to a concert ( Lights :)), stop being stress (This is a working progress) Fix my house (Can you even fix a house in this type of state? HA HA) Get a tone of hours (Yep, done, now I’m burnt) and lastly be happy. (This is a, um, working progress that connects tightly with my stress& Anxiety & school & money& .. life. Ugh.)

I have many other goals and things I’d like to get done but honestly I have a list of about 200, starting with the dishes to do.  But these are more important and specific.

Do you guys set goals?

Do you regularly keep track of them?

Do you believe in always bettering yourself?

Going to be a New York Best Seller? Bien oui.

So I was sitting there and thinking to myself about how amazing my dog is and then she tips over her bowl of water and then I’m like seriously? Are you that stupid? This usually happens daily but with different situations. But overall no matter how stupid she is it comes off as funny, like my own funny T.V show in my house (that usually ends up with me picking up a mess of some sort *sigh*)

Dutchess is my first dog, of course I’ve had dogs all my life but I have never had one that’s been mine and living on my own, well I’m actually living with Trevor my Boyfriend. But this goes for him as well.

So I was thinking of writing a book mixed of truth and humor. Having Dutchess has been a great experience and right now she is only 7months old and there will be more to come obviously (and this book will take a long time to write as well.) But I just want to share my experiences of having a pure bread Husky, and trust me all those warnings out there – don’t ignore them, they are there for a reason. Dutchess is hyper, rowdy, annoying, sneaky (as in don’t pore your bowl of cereal and milk and turn around it won’t be there anymore), but on the good side she’s affectionate, friendly, A good workout if she happens to escape. And on the absolute horrible side … She howls, omg I can’t even begin to explain how annoying it is, and it’s not like big dog bark or howl no she sounds like a crying Chihuahua. Ugh. But for every good thing there has to be an extremely annoying bad thing.

And the nervous, my dog got stung by a bee and had a reaction, above her eye (forehead area)  was the size of a golf ball, and of course since it was a holiday weekend and Saturday, most Vets were closed. But one of my friends told me about baby aspirin and it saved her! (Even though she wasn’t dying) But I was freaking out I had no idea what to do and no vets would help me. But overall she’s great, thank god.

So if I was to start my book it would be about all experiences involving her, including the awkward… yea, really awkward. (To find out you’ll have to purchase my book debuting 2015.) I’ve even have set a goal 3 years of experiences to choose from. (If you don’t believe in the 2012 everyone is going to die thing, I know that I don’t.) And the way I’m approaching this book is through, well basically a note pad, I plan on writing down whatever seems to happen that seems possibly interesting. I also plan on including general information in the beginning of the book, like how I have to brush her 6 times a day during shedding season, and 1 a day in not shedding season.I might also include some friend’s experiences with dogs and maybe a picture of them and their dog.  

I have a ton of ideas and this must be a good thing because I have options as well if one thing doesn’t work out then I’ll just go over to the next one.



Does anyone know anything about writing books? Any tips?

Any funny dog experiences? “Awkward ones?”
