How fast time flies...

Well, I'm officially unemployed. It was a weird feeling this morning waking up and knowing that I don't have a job to go back to. My last day actually didn't really feel like my last day. I will honestly miss having a job, I know I will.

I'm definitely going to miss my office row mates. I don't care what anyone says, we had the best row. Just look how much fun we had:



Friday Office Breakfast! Amazing last breakfast.


Great job guys!!!


Yummy... ice creams sundaes for breakfast are never complete without a Babybel!


And here are some pics of my desk - before and after:





I totally did not realize how messy my desk was!!

The end.

Do you believe in fate?

So time is a ticking and my days in Canada are becoming limited. I feel like I've been talking about this move forever (I guess because I have.. oops) and while it definitely feels more real than it did almost a month ago in my last post.... I don't think it's "officially" sunk in yet. I'll let you know when it does :)

Things in my life have been pretty much the same, even with 10 days left. I worked late tonight, haven't started packing yet, will be having a jewelry sale (my last for awhile, tear) at work on Thursday. It doesn't really feel like I only have 3 days left of work, but I do.

The one thing I've been thinking about a lot lately is the concept of 'fate'.

I've always been a big believer in fate. But, I also believe that we have control of our destiny... so I guess I believe that while fate exists, we can also chose our fate by making certain decisions.
I've always thought that fate brought Robin and I together.

When I think about it, we had so much, yet so little in common at that time. We come from very different worlds, but have been able to intertwine those worlds so well together. He's given me a taste of city life and I've introduced him to suburban living (it's not so bad afterall..). He doesn't like to spend money, I love to spend money. He hates sour foods, and I love them. He's very neat, and I'm very messy. His humour is very sarcastic, mine is dry.

But mostly, we are the same. We both love food and eating. We both love reality tv (although I'm sure he would never admit to that). We both love to go on cruises. We both love to do nothing. Most importantly, we both share the same values and have equally comitted to making this all happen.

So I don't know, I suppose fate brought us together. But, ultimately have we chosen this destiny for ourselves?

Anyways, that's just my food for thought this evening. Didn't mean to get all deep or anything. Stay tuned for more posts leading up to the move...

It's going to get hectic! I plan to post more photos too as this progresses.
