Dear Local Author, You are the friendly person I have had the pleasure of knowing for a single day. I hope we meet again, because I greatly enjoyed talking to you, and I actually enjoyed your book. It was money well spent, and I can see it is a great achievement for you. I’m sorry you won’t make it to Oprah’s book club, since it has ceased to exist. Best of luck to you,and I...

Oh, little earrings, when will you arrive? I need you now.
Okay, so today was a successful day! I went to work to pick up a book, then Starbucks for my usual, and then I went to Sheridan Nursaries for some more little guys to add to my garden. And then I spent the rest of the day gardening because it was so lovely outside :) Front: Dahlia, Basil, Verbena (Lemon), Hungarian Sweet Peppers, Jalapeno Peppers, Habanero Peppers Back: Sunflowers (3),...
Matt: ow! I think I just broke a nail! Me: wtf. Matt: oh, no, it’s bent! Me: WTF. Okay, you woman.
Dear Boy, You are the last person I made a pinky promise to, believe it or not. Actually, we make pinky promises all the time, and we always keep them, so that makes me smile. Thank you for keeping every promise you have ever made. That makes me happy. Love, Me
Dear Best Friend, I know you are going through a really rough time right now with yourself and ____. But I want you to know (because I know that you will read this shortly) that I love you very much, and I know that things will get better. Maybe not right away, or anytime soon, but in time- they will get better. ____ just has to learn to appreciate that you are the one who is always there, and...

You gotta be careful with that. You gotta be careful the person you fall in love...– Blue Valentine
It is not a person, but a place that gave me my favourite memory(s). Dear CVR, You are such a big part of me, still. You hold all my dearest memories of best friends, horses, campfire songs, and all-nighters. You grew with me. I was a little girl when I started going there, and I went every summer until I was 15 when your camp closed down. I will never forget everything I experienced while...
happy birthday, john wayne (1907-1979)
a short story
Would you know how it feels, if you felt it? It’s like an addiction; withdrawal. The aftermath: The shakes come and go, it will only get worse. Then comes the guilt. You will continue to shake. Feel like puking. You will cry, of course. Cry yourself to sleep, praying for some comfort after what you’ve done. You may even promise yourself that you will never do it again, that it is the...
Dear Boy, You are the last person I kissed. You are intelligent, strong-willed and compassionate. I am so proud to know you, and so glad that I am able to make you smile daily. You have the most beautiful soul and the most contagious smile. You’re a jokester and a goof, but I think that’s what had me hooked from the beginning. Oh, and I looking forward to more of your kisses. Love, ...
Dear Friend, I’d like to give you a second chance because you were my friend, but I’m pretty sure any chance we had at a reunion is shot to hell because you’re an asshole and I’m going to stick to my guns and continue holding a grudge. Not because I want to, but because I have to. You hurt me far too much, and for all the wrong reasons. So as much as I’d like to give you another chance,...
Love Always Remains
Dear co-worker, I definitely judged you by my first impression and it was wrong of me. You have actually turned out to be a pretty great person. You’re actually really funny, and I like talking to you. I apologize for first impressions. They can be a bitch sometimes.
Dear love, You are the one who broke me heart the hardest. Of course, I could never blame you for what happened. But as minuscule as it may have seemed to you, when you gave up, you hurt me the most. How could I possibly tell you that? You were everything to me. I needed you more than you needed you. I was always there for you, listening and smiling. Why couldn’t you just smile back for...
I quite enjoy going on Italian websites to read the news and updates on popular culture in parts of Italy. And I love listening to Italian music, and reading in Italian. Also- Italian indie/blues and pop/rock is epic. I’m not even kidding. Go check out whats popular right now: http://www.myspace.com/music/charts
my pretty little blue box came in the mail, how delightful! there is nothing better than a man with good taste.
Dear Starbucks Boy, You actually pester every single corner of my mind, in a good way. I think I’ve said enough already.

Dear Self, The person that I wish I could be? Accepting. I try so hard not to judge others, and to accept everyone. And I try not to lose myself when I don’t get my own way. But sometimes it’s difficult, and I have a hard time accepting that life is what it is. It’s hard. And it’s filled with sticky situations that none of us wish we were in. I wish I could be strong...
crooked-neighbor: Though I am yet to read the new Sarah Dessen book, I can pretty much tell you what it will be about. Girl (who most likely has a weird name) is insecure/feels that she is lacking self-actualization. This is most likely because of a secret family trouble. Girl meets a boy who is ~quirky. Boy teaches Girl to love herself. Optional step of Girl temporarily losing Boy because of...
Today I did the 90 minute Moksha class. It was so difficult and draining, but after the class was finished I felt so amazing. My mind was clear and my problems were forgotten. It was the most rewarding 90 minutes ever. And now I feel so, so good about my life!
Dear Childhood Friend, I would like to believe there’s more to you than what meets the eye, but I don’t think there is. Unless you can prove me wrong? I’d love to see you actually try. When we drifted apart in grade 9, I used to think it was because we broke up and it was awkward for us to stay friends, but now I see that it’s because you were shallow and selfish, wanting...
