Marathon

Today I attended the annual Miles with The Giant Marathon here in Thunder Bay. Not as a competitor mind you, only as a spectator.

It was quite interesting. I wake up at 5:30am, which is probably the earliest time I've been awake in well over a month (aside from staying up that late). I drive to the marathon, arrive a bit early so I can get a coffee, and set up camp.

The turn out is amazing; hundreds of people gather in front of me in the once busy city street. The announcer counts down to the start, and the massive crowd takes off around the corner (one can only imagine what an unaware pedestrian around the corner was thinking).

School

Well, today I moved to Thunder Bay. I'm currently repeating grade 12 for the second time. Most of my friends have moved to various schools around Ontario, so I've decided to move to a different high school in a different city.

I'm taking a 6th year of high school because for the longest time I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with my life. It's a big decision, and I never really found the time to just sit down and think about it. I've never really ever loved one single thing, I've always just kind of liked a lot of things. I thought for a while that I wanted to get into film production (in fact I was even accepted at Carlton University last year), but then I realized that there's very little money in it, as well as very few jobs.

Internetless

I've been without internet for the past few weeks. It's been interesting.

Actually it hasn't. In the few moments in which I'm not out of the house, I just use my laptop to watch already downloaded episodes of the sopranos; pretty much what I'd be doing anyways.

Regardless, I have a moment now to make a new post, so I figured I'd take it, though there's very little to update you on. I've just been hanging out with friends, going to parties, and watching the sopranos. All in all, a good way to spend my summer.

At the end of this month I'm moving to a new place where I'll always have internet, so expect a more frequent updates starting at the end of the month.

Small Rabbit

I found a small rabbit in my yard today. Figured I'd share the pictures with you:
 He was in the garden.
Picked him up and he quivered in my hand. 

Tried giving him water and some food, but he was too scared to eat. Cute little guy.

New Sunglasses

Well I slept in til 3:30 today, so I didn't get to do much. This'll probably be a pretty short post

After waking up I played Portal 2 for a while with my brother. It's a pretty fun game, but I found myself getting irritated when he didn't understand the puzzle as well as I did. It's weird that my mind does that.

After a while of that I went to the mall and purchased some shades. They're sort of a wayfarer styling but with a narrower frame than most.
Sort of like these, but with a warmer tint for the glass:
I was hoping for some clubmaster shades, but I couldn't find any. They look more like this:

Regardless, I'm glad to finally have some sunglasses; these days have been far too sunny for these light-deprived eyes.
