Okay, My beautiful friend Julie who can be found HERE
decided for her 21st birthday this year, rather than to receive gifts, to ask her friends/family to give money to the organization My Charity Water. People can either anonymously, or not, give donations in any sum which will then go towards drinking water to people in places like Uganda, who have NO drinking water available!
Such an amazing cause, and she has inspired me to take on this challenge during the christmas season.
Keep posted on my blog and at the end of November (or mid-november), thanks to Julie :) I’ve decided that I would rather give drinking water to people in Africa (and other parts of the world where drinking water is not as easy-access as in North America), than to receive whatNots and gadgets that don’t help anyone!
Hopefully MY story, inspired by that of another, will inspire YOU guys to go out and do the same.

ahhh, i know i havent updated the world recently on tumblr.
it has been so freakin hectic in this little university dorm room of mine the past week or few days.
However, today I successfully wrote my first REAL-life university mid-term!! :)
and, thanks to the last-minute cram sesh yesterday (literally ALL DAY.) with my bff danielle, I can happily say I think I did pretty well on that thaaang! got ‘er right done.
So, back to good ol’ B402 for some more studying to be done …. german tomorrow, communication studies wednesday, and my fav…. political science on thursday (gag me).
university is oh so fun!
Good God, if Your song leaves our lips
if Your work leaves our hands
Then we will be wanderers & vagabands.
They will stare and say how empty we are
How the freedom we had turned us up as dead man
Let us be cold, make us weak
Let us because we all have ears
Let us because we all have eyes
How they knew that this would happen
They knew, they knew that this would happen
We’re so run down..
Good God can you still get us home?
How can we still get home?
We’re forgetting our forgiveness.
i can throw my hands up in the air right now in happiness that i just accomplished two great things in one small night :)
number 1: psych midterm. CHECK!
although i cannot say how well i think i did on this… my fingers are crossed for the outcome! i DID study lots though, so hopefully that all paid off.
number 2: Comm. studies Essay. CHECCCCCK!
this has been looming over me since the first day of tutorials when the leader told me it was due October 20th. Which felt like lightyears away at the time. Well folks, tomorrow is that day. and the freshly printed Essay titled originally ‘The American Shadow’ is sitting next to me on my desk, eagerly awaiting to venture off into my professors hands tomorrow morning at 12:30pm.
so there ya go. all thats left is the celebratory fun and games :)
