too late monday night

i should be sleeping but i cant
i keep lucid dreaming about wandering ottawa streets..

so i switched on my light and started writing. and then reading old writings. and then watched that video in love actually when mark shows juliet the video and she realises he loves her. i love that video.

came across this in my journal,
"the goal is to combine your raitional waking life with the infinite possibilities of your dream life. then anything is possible."

is my waking life rational?

hi celine.
quote of the month goes to Eason

he raises his hand,
i call on him,
he says:
"teacher ashley,
i could hug you all day."

its the easiest kind of love.

just found this...written 02 16 12

A recipe

A house boat
A tree that grows avacados
limitless bottles of red wine

A really good wine opener
a treehouse
A rainforest shower
hundreds of teeny tiny white lights
A garden
A dog
a full bookshelf or two
a room full of books,
with a sliding ladder,
and a fireplace
a dance floor, anywhere will do
a sun hat
a telescope
no schedule
no deadlines
fresh fruit and vegetables
a claw foot tub
a record player
a neverending supply of paper and good writing pens

wonderful wednesday

woke up early to a series of love notes on my dinosaur phone...dad, celine, and dustin really know how to make a girl smile in the morning. <3
made some oatmeal and slowly made my way to the gym. watched a fascinating show on national geographic about man eating snakes while working it out on the bike. had a dip in the hot and cold pools, a steam, a shower and headed home. my guanlee greeted me at the front of my building and handed me two giant taiwanese oranges for no reason at all. such a treat.
work was good inside the classroom and just bearable outside. theres a new guy thats taking over sarahs position next week. he seems cool.
after work we headed straight downtown to gambei fish market for ellas going away thing. shes lovely. shes leaving friday to move to ottawa! i gave her a list of hot spots to ensure she has the best ottawa summer experience possible.
just got home and am watching sex and the city before dreams.

16 days til dustin.
mmm mmmm good.

nightie night all
