C: Chaos.

So my blog has been pretty slack lately; a couple of pictures, my radio assignment and a passive-aggressive attempt at getting someone to send me a case of Metro Mint water. Lame.

In all fairness though, I have been extremely busy. So busy, in fact, that I am deliriously tired, and starting to go a little 'wonky,' if you know what I mean.

CreComm is hard. I've had to remind myself over, and over again that I wanted this for so long, and that I shouldn't take it for granted, but low and behold it is a struggle.

This is probably because I have 'bitten off more than I can chew' so to speak. Well, at least I think I have; I'm in school full time, have a part time job, intern at a magazine, volunteer (as much as I can) with the Indian and Metis Friendship Centre, write business profiles for another magazine, and I just finished a month-long stint of writing the Sunday 'List of things to do' for On7. Life is chaotic. But, like I said, I have to remember how bad I wanted this. Besides, my mom got her PhD while working full time and raising three kids; if I've got her genes, I'm pretty sure I can do anything.

That being said, I am exhausted! I never, in a million years, thought that I would be in the spot that I'm in now; life is busy, but I am working hard to get what I want.

I know I probably always harp on this, but I was a high school drop out, with little ambition. I strived to be one of the "pretty's," and I didn't care if people thought I was dumb. (Ugh, I can't believe that I admitted that.) But, that's who I was, and I am striving to never be that person again. (Although I still want to be one of the "pretty's")

I should probably go to bed. This post is probably fragmented, and doesn't make sense, but I'll edit and rewrite it tomorrow.



  1. I think you're pretty Shelley! Inside and out!

  2. Life is a journey and boy oh boy, you'll sure have some great stories to tell and great memories to think about later on in your life. Keep goin' girl....you can do it!!
