Easily the best times of the year...you feel for that one day that you can stick it to the man and not work, not get up early and just relax. This of course rarely happens because you feel like, oh my gosh I have a day to be productive.
I will be escaping to the thousand islands to relax...hopefully.

I need to learn about photography....It has to be one of the most beautiful art forms. You capture the beauty exactly how you see it...no artist would be able to really fully capture the beauty all around us, each and every day!
Hmm ok but where to start...currently I own a olympus camera...It is not great...I need to look to get a new one...Dan's aunt is a professional photographer....maybe she will show me.

I have quite literally never experienced a stench like the one I am currently smelling in Toronto. The garbage men are on strike and this city smells awful!!!!! I literally almost vomit when I head to work each day. It is awful.
I am worried that our city which is normally so beautiful and pristine will end up buried in a pile of rotting garbage. I feel like every day when I go home I have to wash the stink off of me. It makes me sad that the bottoms of my shoes have to touch the pavement.....Flip flops are not an option this summer!!!

This is something I LOVE TO DO. But in times like these it is tough. Because old friends who you haven't had contact with in forever mean that inviting them over for game night is just not an option! You have to go for coffee or tapas or drinks. All of which are fun to do but none are free.
I always think to my closest friends who I can invite over to play games, drink tea or simply gossip and chit chat for hours. These are the friends to hold on to in an economy like this. This are the friends that will help you get rich (because of all the moneyyou will save on eating out) and will be there for you no matter what. I have 3 friends like this maybe 4, and they are wonderful people!
They will also tell you if you ass looks large in a skirt and let me just say THANK GOODNESS for these kind of friends!

This can be summed up in two simple words...student loans. They are so expensive especially in North America. When you are in your 20s there is no possible way to make money to pay off the loans. I mean between rent and trying to buy a half decent business wardrobe (lets face it, ripped jeans and American Apparel T's do not cut it in the real world) how are you supposed to come up with $300 a month! Ok and lets take a step back here and think about what that $300 a month means. On a debt of between 20-25 thousand dollars paying $300 a month means you will have your loan paid off in 9 years. 9 YEARS!!! You will end up paying almost 10 thousand extra in interest. That is the stupidest thing I have ever heard. Shouldn't a country want to invest in their youth...Youth are supposed to learn and bring the country new hope....in North America apparently we like to make it as difficult as possible....well I think we have not got a clue and our culture is the reason we are in this recession and therefore we should rethink a few things....maybe starting with secondary education....
Just a thought....

Seriously.....it says it takes 6 weeks....we are going on like 10 now people.....It sucks when you are making so little money to begin with that you really need that check...especially when you splurged on the most beautiful pair of Marc Jacobs jeans!
Ok ok...now I am in no way going to be referring to myself as a irresponsible shopaholic like the one depicted in the Sophie Kinsella novels. But once in a while I just go a little wild, which is really fun but then I have to pay for it and it makes me sick to my stomach, I hate having any debt......not to mention the looming student loan hanging over my head (which consiquencly I do not think we should have to start paying back until 5 years after we graduate where there are more realistic funds at our disposal). It is all just too much! The stress of it all might give me an ulcer. I hope not though, because I couldn't afford the time off work.
Being 20 and at the bottom of the food chain is the least fun thing ever....
