Home Sweet Home

You never know how much you love your life until you go away from it for a while. Coming back I missed my country, I missed my home and I missed my friends. Although in this whole process, coming home had one problem. I now miss my family. I have three older brothers and in Mexico the last one got married. I am happy for him and to tell you the truth don't really notice a difference. He wasn't home all that much to begin with, however I keep thinking that it is going to hit me soon enough.

As for Mexico, I wouldn't go again. I mean it was a nice experience and my brother has awesome wedding photos, but Mexico for me was not all it was cracked up to be. I was expecting to go to Mexico and eat spicy food that makes my eyes water and my nose run. However the hottest thing I ate while I was down there was dipping sauce from when we got pizza at Domino's Pizza in the airport. Out of 22 people there about 9 got sick, including myself. Weather it was heat stroke or the food we ate, a lot of people just didn't feel right. Including my mother who is still sick from catching some kind of bacteria while she was there. All and all however the trip was beautiful. I did get some what of a tan, which I think was pretty good considering the fact that I don't tan and am one of the pastiest people I know.

When I got home I was glad to be here, seeing everyone again was fantastic. However yesterday I seem to have caught the flu bug and have been feeling really lousy the past couple of days. Which brings me to the question of why is it when we get sick we always want our mothers? It seems odd. Why not our fathers, or friends? I am hoping I will be over it by tomorrow. I have plans to go see Prince of Persia with some friends, and also have to work. So I can't miss that.

As for not commenting on every ones blogs, I promise I will do that as soon as I am up and running again. Have a good weekend!

Here I am in the main entrance, the only place for Internet, in Cancun Mexico. Its cloudy yet hot, and its really nice to just relax. Although I must admit I do miss constantly being busy. I'm not one of those people who can just lay there and stare at a ceiling for hours on end, and although the sea is rough and is filled with coral, the pools are fabulous. Sitting by the pool drinking virgin pina coladas is fantastic. The only problem with this trip, is it would be perfect with my friends here. Yes my family is here, but because it is my brothers wedding everyone is so busy planning that and fussing around. I have only been here for two days now, so I will update everyone when I get back and let you know how it went. For now here is some photos. Enjoy

I've Been Tagged

So I have been tagged, by Shannon over at Faith, Hope and Love, which is actually kind of cool.

Question 1. Where were you 5 years ago?
I was just finishing 9th Grade. That was a good year, however I am happier where I am today.

Question 2. Where would you like to be 5 years from now?
In 5 years time I would like to be finished one film and hopefully have it in the theaters for my family and friends to see. I would like to own my own home and travel quite a bit.

Question 3. What was (is) on your list to do today?
Well today I had to go back to work after having 2 days off, which wasn't all that bad. Later today I might hang out with a friend, maybe get some gas in my car.

Question 4. What 5 snacks do you enjoy?
Chocolate covered almonds, M&Ms, apples, smoothies, cheese and crackers, and ice cream.

Question 5. What would you do if you were a billionaire?
If I was a billionaire I would pay off everyone in my immediate families debt. Pay a contractor to fix up the house we live in now and to build my parents dream home in Newfoundland. I would go to Vancouver Film School instead of Toronto Film School, invest, buy myself a new car. Pay off my friends debt, and travel.

Ok so now I guess I have to tag 5 people. So I choose

Jessica-Ann from Todays Cranium Special. New blogger that needs more writing ideas
Will from Fatherhood & Other Common Terrors
Matt from My Journey Into Locomotion
Alex from Alex J. Cacanaugh
and then I guess whoever else wants a run at it.

Hallelujah! We are done! 26 letters down! All I have to say is please don't start with numbers. No it was awesome. I enjoyed coming up with things to write about from a topic I just thought about. It was overall very rewarding. Meeting a lot of down to earth people and feeling all the more popular from comments and followers, it feels great knowing your writing is being read.

I first heard about the A to Z Challenge by commenting on one of my co-workers blog. I wanted to participate but wasn't completely sure if I wanted to let everyone know, just in case I decided it didn't work for me. A couple days later after starting the challenge I wrote Arlee Bird and told him I would give it a try. Thankfully thanks to my new followers and commenter's I trudged along and finished the challenge. It was hard work, but the reward I feel now is terrific! I also enjoyed reading other peoples blogs and seeing what is going on in other peoples lives and in a different country.

This challenge has allowed me to step outside my box of ideas. Overall great idea.
