I think that the beauty of being a heavy duty reader and a part time writer means that I can enjoy being a child for the rest of my life. I spent yesterday, my last day of being a teenager, watching movies that I have always loved. These included: Mary Poppins ( my boyfriend took me to see Saving Mr Banks recently since we both adore the movie), Madeline, and Thomas and the Magic Railroad. After I finished watching Thomas and the Magic Railroad my brains started to chug out a semi plotline for a new story.
I was astonished. Seriously.
It seems that all of december I have been dry for ideas; even my NaNoWriMo 2013 story held no interest for me!
Okay, okay I’m back on track now. My ideas on Mary Poppins and Saving Mr Banks will have to come again in the form of a different blog post in the new year.
How did I spend my birthday?
Well…pretty much relaxed the entire day. My day involved movie watching, cat napping, and reading.
Well…pretty much had a fancy night.
My parents took my boyfriend and I to this fancy restarent called Praire360 here in Winnipeg. For those who knew of it as the Revolving Restaurant…well it still revolves. Being able to see Winnipeg from 30 stories up was amazing and breathtaking the first time around (by the second it was still amazing and awesome but not as much if you get what I mean). The food was delicious: I dined on these amazing perogies which were filled with bison. They were amazing!
When I got home, or at least back to mum’s, I was treated to an amazing cake from Safeway (thanks dad!) and many presents. I am not going to go into too much detail about everything but I will give three of my highlights (which may not be highlights to everyone else).
::1:: Mum gave me Ritz Cracker packs (12 pack I believe). Now my reason that this is a highlight? Ritz Cracker packs are a very special treat in my house. I rarely get them as a snack nor do I go out and buy them with my own money. They are a treat that does not come into my hands very often.
::2:: Dad gave me the latest Clive Cussler (Mr Cussler, if you read this, I am a huge fan!) book: Mirage. I’ve been drooling over it every time I walk into a Chapters or McNally Robinson. I even dragged dad to both places in a week and made sure to point it out both times. I am so excited to read it!
Now I am going to admit before I even go further that I love all my presents that I have recieved both now and on Christmas. I would never take any of these gifts for granted nor do I choose one solid favorite since it is unfair.
::3:: Boyfriend gave me the Ultimate Tea Collection from DAVIDsTEA!! I nearly fell out of my chair. I absolutely adore tea and to know that my boyfriend would go out and spend a large amount of money on tea for me…well it leaves me just amazed! Not that I should be surprised…but its still WOW.
That pretty much wraps up what I did with my family and boyfriend today.
I am determind that even when I have to grow up and get older I will never truly grow up. There will always be some part of me that will happily say, “Fuck this shit.” and continue acting childish. This is why I truly love reading and writing with such passion. These beautiful forms of words will allow me to keep my childish nature flowing!
Happy Birthday to myself! Its hard to believe I am 20 and not going back. Like Avril Lavigne said, “Here’s to never growing up!”
