I miss Victoria. I see why Helen is somewhat obsessed
with the city. It's charming, quiet, peaceful..small
town with big town attractions.
We visited all the big museums...we walked a lot, laughed a lot, ate a lot....and I still want some cheesecake. I miss all my roomies. ;p
Actually, me and Helen EACH got a KING SIZED bed. (I'm sure I said this before the trip...but part of me was in disbelief) But really...we did. It was possible for me to lie in bed with my arms outstretched and not be able to touch the edges. Holy smokies man!! It was very comforting sleep, and no waits for the washrooms. And no excessive snoring. :)
We had cheesecake, and ribs, and lots of yummy bread, and seafood canelloni, and dim sum...I had no idea that Victoria had a Chinatown....then we walked through it and realized that it was teeny tiny ... only one block!!
The wax museum freaked me out. It was frightening to see the figures move ..eeek!! ...We also visited the BC Royal Museum, the Miniature Museum, Undersea, and Crystal gardens. There were these mini mini mini monkeys that were super hyper! It was neat to see these little creatures less than the size of your palm dart and leap from the ground up into the trees, then back down to the ground all at once.
Yes I miss Victoria.
I hadn't realized that Christmas is just less than a week away. I'm feeling a little depressed for things in my family I guess. It always feels like there is no hope, no matter what I do, things will always be the same. People are difficult to change.
I want to worry less, dream more, smile more easily, and overall, be less disappointed with people around me. I think the more someone is close to you, the bigger chance they have of disappointing you because you place so much on them.. mentally and physically.
I tried to decorate the "Christmas Tree" tonight. It partially got me all depressed again. It has been a rollercoaster day...woke up fine, was frustrated by my server, got into bed and was going to spend half the day there, then got up and decided not to let things bother me. Tried to decorate the tree and couldn't find ANYTHING that would go on it...
My mother chose this ugly, discusting Norfolk pine. You cannot hang ANYTHING on it because the branches are so light and bendable. No lights, no ribbon, no garland. What the hell is a Christmas tree without trimmings? And we couldn't even find the lights, or half the decorations.
I hate putting my name on something that is so half-assed...it frustrates me to no end.
It's just a tree right? What matters is what's under it right? ...well I also came home last night to no welcome. Instead, my dad was all pissed off on the phone when I called him on the Greyhound, and then my mother complained that I should have skytrained it home from Central Station.
Whaaat. Well she could have told me that, but the fact that she was complaining about it when she came to pick me up was like.."what...no hello?"
So since I haven't found Christmas prezzies for some people, I'm thinking of not even getting them something because my family doesn't really do the whole gift-exchange thing anyways. It's just me who's into Christmas anyways, so it shouldn't make too much of a difference.
Maybe I'm just tired or something. I think i'm going to pop some vitamin B-12's and D's. *sigh*
