I went to the Art Gallery of Ontario yesterday with Anita. I haven't seen Anita in like a year and it was great to see her again. At the AGO they had a special King Tut exhibit with artifacts that were found in his tomb. It was pretty amazing to see artifacts that old. Anyways, after the exhibit we looked around the Gallery and saw paintings by artists like Picasso and Emily Carr. I'm not that good with art but I definitely want to go back and look again. There was a huge section with Art from Haida Gwaii, close to home! We even ran into Nathan and his friend, that was so random. I didn't take any pictures, I wasn't allowed. It's funny I must have tried to go to the AGO like four times and it never worked out. I even went last year on my birthday and it was closed, I was so disappointed. So I have this problem that has been on my mind for a very long time. I work with this man who is very troubled. He's in his 50's and struggles with money big time. He was fired from his last two jobs and only has one left where he only works 3 hours a day. He can't buy food because he can't afford it, he is 4 months behind on his rent, he has no family, and he has a big drinking problem. I want to help him but no one can. When you give him money he buys alcohol, when you buy him clothes, gifts, etc. he just gives it to his lover that totally uses him. I try to give him food and stuff but I can't do this forever. I even help him on the Internet to look for jobs. He only wants to be a server and now a days no one wants to hire a male server who is over 50. A lot of people have tried helping him but just gave up because he will never change. I'm afraid he might end up on the streets or even lose his only job. Right now I just listen to his problems and give him whatever advice I can. Sighhh.

So I got an iPhone!!!! Telus finally got them. I'm still getting used to it but it's seriously the best phone ever. I bought a few Christmas gifts today. I'm not really feeling Christmas this year, I think it's because it's so warm in Toronto. I can't believe I will be going home soon, about 24 days I think! Every time I go home I gain like 10 pounds, not this time! Since September I've lost 15 pounds. People haven't really noticed but I have, my skirt at work keeps falling down, lol.
This is totally off topic but has anyone been watching Survivor? I stopped watching it like two years ago but this season I decided to start watching it again and it's been pretty interesting. I also watch Glee now too. I'm all about the free episodes online.

Today I made some good money. A chef and I went to this man's house and served his family dinner. This man started one of the biggest companies in all of Toronto and just sold it for over a billion dollars! I was really nervous to go but everything ran very smoothly and he was so nice. Hopefully I get more offers to do these private dinners. It's unbelievable how much they will pay.

My life has changed so much in the last two weeks. I've been forcing myself to go out and do stuff. I'm working like crazy again just to keep busy. I've met a bunch of people, got together with friends I haven't seen in a long time and have become better friends with the friends I have now. In fact I can't believe how nice and supportive some people are being. Even something as simple as lending me a DVD or asking how I'm doing meant a lot. Thanks guys!

My Boots

So it's starting to get a little colder and a little rainier so I decided to pull out my leather boots. They were covered in dust and cobwebs, I was pretty disgusted. When I put them on the floor of my room a few spiders scurried away from them. I cleaned the outsides of them and decided to use my flash light to make sure there were no more surprises inside of them. When I looked in I saw the worst thing ever! There in the corner was a cocoon of spider eggs awaiting to hatch and terrorize me. This is something I could not deal with. I can never wear those boots again. I have to throw away these perfectly good boots.

Hi Craig!

I hate..

I hate being home. I hate my dark hole of a room. I hate working. I hate travelling so far to get places. I hate folding laundry. I hate my slow computer. I hate this cold rain. I hate when my room mate never locks the door. I hate his girlfriend who makes a giant mess wherever she goes. I hate that I have to remember so many passwords. I hate charging my I pod. I hate all my music. I hate taking off nail polish. I hate cuts on my fingers. I hate that H1N1 is used in every one's jokes now. I hate Oreo's. I hate downtown Toronto. I hate my boots. I hate spiders. I hate a lot of things.

Hey guys. I debated whether or not I should blog about what I'm going to blog about but I think it will help if I do. Some of you already know, there is no more Josh and Stephanie, just Stephanie. I know I should be keeping busy but I'm not. It's hard to talk about it but I just thought you guys should know since I mention Josh in every post.

I have my first soccer game tonight, my team from last year broke up (how appropriate) so they are sticking me on another team. This team is really good, I just hope I will fit in and get a good jersey since I missed the very first game last week.

Work has been really stressful lately. The supervisor who usually does the breakfast banquets just had an operation and will be off for two months. They asked me to take over for her while she's gone. The reason it's been hard is because a lot of people are jealous because they think they should have been asked. I agree with them, there are ladies that have been there for 20 years and work breakfast everyday. I don't know why my boss asked me but he said I was the only one right for the job. So I have all these older ladies calling me little miss supervisor and a lot of people trying to make me look bad. I wish life wasn't so complicated.

Stupid time change. I think I'm the only one who didn't want an extra hour of sleep. Sorry this post is so negative. I think it's time to pull out Anne of Green Gables (lol).

Hi to my best girls Tamara, Amanda, and Lauren! You've been great.
