Goodbye Friend

Yesterday I lost my dear friend and doggie, Kinky. She was an old dog and became very ill. It was so sad to see her so sick and to go through so much that I had to make the awful decision to have her put to sleep. I wish I didn’t have to do it, but she was becoming sicker and sicker and I didn’t want her to have to go through such trauma. I was very close to her, we formed a special bond and loved each other. She hated to be away from me, so I stayed with her until the end so she was not alone. I am really going to miss her and I am lucky that I was able to have a special animal friend like her in my life.

So, lets recap!

I have been terrible at updating my blog and I really miss spending at least a few minutes each week (or month) posting something. I will try and change that. :0 So, I have decided to recap, there has been a number of things going on since I last blogged with substantial content, so hold on tight for the catch up!

Pink Hair
I have been wanting pink hair for a while now and I finally have it! It is a tad darker then what I want in the photo below because apparently it does wash out quickly, and I have found that out as it’s a lot lighter now. My hair is also short now, I had been growing it for years, and decided for a change and I am happy with it now, instead of annoyed and confused on what to do with it. :3

Pinkish Hair! ^__^

Japan Donations
A major thank you to everyone that requested a theme to be made to help Japan. We raised $135 which is so awesome, and I know it will be helpful in many ways. I am sorry to those that I am still in the process of creating, eh, I am dooooooooomed.

Digital SLR Camera
*bursts* I had been wanting a good camera for years, and I finally found one that I wanted that wasn’t too expensive and I could let loose on a world of new opportunities. I purchased a Canon EOS 500D and I LOVE IT. At first I was getting carried away with how important I thought it was about the technology when the reality is, having an SLR helps, but you still have to be able to capture emotional connections to your subjects. I am learning, developing and hopefully improving as time moves on!

Nanna Gone A Year
On may the 5th my grandmother (Nanna) had been gone one year. That was a very emotional time and I still am struggling with her not being in my life. I still feel like she is still here, that she is just off somewhere and is going to come home soon. I really love my grandmother a great deal, she was such a quirky individual who wasn’t afraid to be herself and had a will or iron. I am like her in a lot of ways. I really miss her. ::(

Everything else

  • Bubble was placed on Hiatus and is returning on 1st August 2011
  • Still studying at Uni
  • Still looking after my grandfather (he hasn’t been very well for a while, so it has been a struggle trying to juggle everything in life)
  • I AM GOING TO SYDNEY FOR A WEEK TO SEE KRISSY, CLAIRE AND GEORGINA. Unless they realize that I am really just a weirdo and don’t want too. There will be more on this later. ;D

24 Today *gasp*

Today I am 24, very strange. I had originally planned to write a post on reflections and what I plan to do in the next year before turning 25 (mainly to do with pushing myself to do the things I have always wanted) but I don’t feel like it right now. Next update I’ll see how I go.

I was having a good day, received so many messages (amazing, thank you ALL!) but found out in the afternoon that Dad was in hospital and had been since 7am. *sigh* So that has made things a bit blah. I hope he will be okay. :(

I do have cupcakes! Everything is okay with cupcakes. x:cupcakestraw: x:cupcakechoc:
