[Peggy's Cove via The.Rohit on Twitter]

Last week I was in a real funk. I don't like to whine and complain, but it seems like all I did was cry last week. I was stressed over school, the hormones were raging, and it seemed like stupid people were popping up in every aspect of my life. On top of all of that, messages of breakups kept rolling in about friends who were previously engaged and/or living with their men. One of these in particular managed to completely break my heart. I was so sure that [the now ex]Roomie had managed to find something spectacular; I even wrote him a love letter!

Roomie is someone who deserves so much good, and I thought she finally had found a piece of that. She's so sweet, always puts everyone else first, is smokin' hot, and she's a domestic goddess; she's been through a lot of crap in her life, brushes it off, picks herself back up and moves on with a smile. Tonight I'm pouring the wine and hearing the full tale. I only hope I can provide a fraction of the support that she gives to everyone else in her life.

When the sadness rolls in, I've got to try to see the bright side of things. I also need to remember that I signed up for school; essays aren't something horrible being done to me.

Every year becomes the best one yet and this one is no exception. Twenty-ten will be full of fun things like concerts (Muse and U2), shows (Chicago and Sweeny Todd), and cross-Canada journeys (so far: Fernie, B.C. for a week of snowboarding and mountains in February; Halifax, N.S. for a week in June -- I'll get to see the lovely Andrea!; home to Ontario for my cousin's wedding in August; and Victoria, B.C. for three more weeks of intensive learning in October). This year is literally a Canadian coast-to-coast adventure! This year I'll complete more than half of my Masters and I'll have logged over 3 years with my Love.

I just hope that all my friends get to be this blissful.

What are you looking forward to in 2010?

apart from you? *smile*
I can't believe that you're going to be here.. I'm so happy that we'll have somebody to see that side of the province with, we are just SO excited.
I'm looking forward to all of my plans, to making plans and resolutions.. It all seems so exciting at the beginning of the new year!

I was so excited to see a picture of Peggy's Cove... My parents home is 20 minutes from there! :)

This is so sweet.
In 2010 I'm looking forward to finishing school, and getting my balance. It's a hard thing for me but I think I'm closer than I have been in a while to getting to that place.

I am looking forward to making some changes, becoming a better version of the person I am currently, and hoping that I can find the peace I'm seeking that seems all too fleeting.

I am *so* jealous of your Muse adventure :) Touch Matt Bellamy for me? And you should definitely plug Winnipeg into your Canadian adventure :)

This year I'm looking forward to my vacation, seeing Mumford & Sons, the possibility of going back to England to see my nan, and of course my wedding :)

I commented to B last night that I've never been to Manitoba... so he's pushing for Winnipeg to be on next year's "to-do" list. At least.
