Its been a while - and sadly, despite the fact that I am in my last year before I turn 25, I’ve barely accomplished anything on my list.
Nevertheless! I have been able to complete a few of them!
7. Take a course in something I am interested in
I for one, DETEST that I’m 24 and cannot finish what I started. I started social work and DESPISED it, therefor decided to take some time off, and unfortunately nearly four years later, and 2 college/university applications later, im still taking that “time off”
SO I hauled ass and actually have realistic September plans. More on that later.
13. Make a close friend from scratch
I came to Ottawa to help my sister out, and have had some pretty sad days since I got here. Life has been so much better since my best friend from home moved here to live with me, but better than that, I even have a group of pals here.
I’ve been working at a grocery shop for nearly a year, and started chumming around with one girl, quite frequently. She’s a bit younger, but we’re the same height so really, its no matter. I randomly and quickly started opening up to her about stuff that I would usually only tell Sarah. It was only a few weeks ago when I was thinking about this list and I realized “hey…I think I’ve made a close friend from scratch!”
Note: You know who you are, if I ever cave and give you the link to my blog…thank you ;) youre an amazing friend. meow, glubb glubb :P

12. Go to a movie or dinner alone
I’ve been back in my home town for roughly 7 weeks and it hasn’t exactly been the vacation I’d imagined it to be. It has involved a lot of weird closure, and a lot of crazy decisions (Did I mention I’m moving to Quebec? FRENCH LAND, HERE COMES SARAH! OUI!)
Needless to say, I discovered a lot of my old friends have really moved on with their lives and it took me so long to accept that! One weekend, my parents went away for the weekend and I had their house to myself. Now 16 year old Sarah would JUMP literally for joy and throw a party (she actually did do that once…) but instead I searched frantically for a friend to stay over - and when I couldn’t find one what did I do?
all friday night.
I woke up Saturday SUUUPER stoked about this day to myself. I took a shower, took myself out for falafel at Pharoahs and then walked around the craft festival. I ended my dinner watching Katy Perry in 3D, and developed a huuuuuge girl crush on KP.
In all honesty, its something I’ve learned to embrace and love. I’m a very extroverted person, I adore being in the company of others but it felt so refreshing to finally experience having alone time and loving it!

# 4. Win something
Ive been having a slow-sluggish morning. I didnt want to get out of bed, and I didnt go for a run like I planned. Family health problems and stressing over this weekend have left me feeling gloomy today, so I stationed myself on the couch with the an aloe water and good luck charlie re-runs.
I intended on kind of avoiding social activity today. I like to lay low on days that I feel like this, so I put my phone on silent and slid it to the other side of the couch, but It lit up and caught my eye so I glanced at the screen and it said “MUCH MUSIC IS FOLLOWING YOU ON TWITTER”
pooped my pants.
I bet you all are thinking what I thought in that moment. HOLY CRAP. SHE GOT THE INTERNSHIP.
no such luck…yet ;) I did however, win a Degrassi prize pack! I freaking LOVE degrassi and have followed it since season 1 (thats almost 12 seasons!) so this little mid-day pick me up was just what i needed :)
