October 31st, my favorite day of the year.
Halloween, it's the absolute best. And to celebrate today, I'm going on a mini photo-shoot outing with my best friend and then coming home to watch Nightmare Before Christmas, because that movie makes me smile.

This is Halloween,
This is Halloween,
Halloween, Halloween, Halloween, Halloween.

Everyone hail to the Pumpkin Song.

Aren't you scared? Well that's just fine.
Say it once, say it twice, take a chance and roll the dice.
Ride with the moon in the dead of night.
Everybody scream, everybody scream!
In our town of Halloween.

Jack and Sally, forever and always.

I was here.

My cousin had a baby shower last weekend, and my aunt and I got to talking about my life and what I'm doing and how school is and such. She mentioned how Christmas time was coming up soon, and I should send her a list of all the lenses I would like for my camera.
So today, I started writing a list, because not only does my aunt want one, I need one as well as my father. I forgot how expensive lenses were. I almost feel bad for sending a list to her with the lenses I found interesting. Thankfully the most expensive lens that I would REALLY appreciate having is only around $500, which is actually a great catch for a new lens.
I'm starting to get everything back on track and I feel good. Work has offered me forty hours a week, Tuesdays to Saturdays, full time. Obviously I said yes. One, it'll keep me occupied, two, I need the money for all the places and things that I need, and three, come on, it isn't too bad! It'll take some getting used to, but it'll teach me how to balance my time properly again, since I also have school to figure out as well.
I'm thankful I'm not going to class anymore, because I would not have the energy to do eight hour shifts during the week while still attending school at 8:30am every day.
I'm planning a couple trips to Montreal within a month and I'm pretty excited for that. I kind of rambled about all the plans I had in the previous post, out of pure excitement. I emailed my parents soon after I published that post, and re-read the next day. Talk about embarrassing.
But none the less, it's all coming up so fast and I need to make sure I'll have enough time to do everything I need to do.

Anyway, I'm going to go look at some more lenses, maybe watch some more Anime. I don't think I'll be getting out of bed for awhile. Have a good day :)

OKAY. I am reaaaaally excited for the next couple months and into 2012!
So, in a little less then a month (27days or something), I'm going to an Anime convention in Ottawa with one of my extremely good friends. Now,  I was supposed to go see my best friend that weekend (the 18th of November) but him and I have always been HORRIBLE at keeping friends and I decided to kill two birds with one stone.
In February, they're holding another one (different group) in Guelph, which just so happens to be where my best friend goes to school :) Now, this happens to fall on the 25th of Feb.
The night before, (24th), my friend and I are going to see Simple Plan, live. I know, I know. Simple Plan, really? But I grew up on them - they helped me through a lot of bullshit back in elementary school and their new stuff is actually decent!
Either way, I'm really stoked, because I also have an Open House on the 3rd for the College I'm applying for and I can start getting everything I need together.
Also, I'm trying to convince my boss to put me on full time 2-10 closes (Sunday to Thursday) so I can make 40 hours a week and get MAD STACKS because I am going to be spending so much in the next couple months. I've also decided to buckle down and get school done, so on Monday I'm going in to do a couple test and get my next unit so I can work on that.
I'm taking the first week off in November so I can concentrate on everything I need to focus on, maybe get all dressed up and go have a little photoshoot with a couple friends, who knows. But right now, I'm just really excited and pumped up for life! It feels good, considering I've been feeling like shit lately and it's been starting to wear me down a huge amount.
And here I am, rambling, but no one reads this anyway so I might as well have fun :) I also ordered a bunch of stuff online, so I'm just waiting for all of that to come in. It is just great right now, I am so happy. Feels good. Looking forward to some family time tomorrow, too! Maybe I'll bring my camera and take some great shots!
Anyway, I am off to bed.
Talk to you later :)

You know what I find funny? The irony behind "Emergency Room". Unless you have a bone sticking out of you, or you're holding on for dear life, or you know, have come in an ambulance, you aren't really in any real emergency. I went to the Civic yesterday because I felt like knives were stabbing me and things were trying to escape my stomach. I then waited seven hours for test results and to be poked and prodded and looked at... only to find out that nothing was actually wrong with me and I should just sleep it off. NOW, usually, I wouldn't mind. Usually, I would just sleep it off. But this has been going on since before the summer, and I don't usually complain. I hate doctors, and I especially hate hospitals, so for me to be begging to be taken to one, just to have them say "You're fine." is kind of like a slap in the face.
And I get it, I do, they can only do so much at 6am, and I was getting ridiculously tired of waiting around and just, in general, but my point is, it shouldn't have taken them seven hours to figure it out. And again, I get it, short staffed, mid-night shifts, some girl was fucked on coke and another came in an ambulance - so obviously their priorities are there... but they could have at least mentioned, "Hey, something came up, you MIGHT be here for a little while longer then expected."
Anyway, I got home around seven this morning, made my mom stop off at Mcdonalds because giving blood makes me hungry and dizzy and then came home and crashed.
I still feel like total shit, and I still want to rip my stomach open so whatever's inside doesn't do it for me, but I guess the good news is, nothing's infected, and my liver and all that jazz are still in good condition.
That's my rant for now, I'll probably write later when I don't feel like death, but we shall see.

You know what really pisses me off? When you're sitting at an erena, and people are trying to get by you and you DON'T STAND UP. Holy fuck. It takes two seconds to stand up, and let them walk by, instead of having them trip over your stupid legs and bags and whatever else you might have.
Last night, I went out with a couple friends to see the Cirque Du Soliel/Micheal Jackson Immortal Tour at the Scotia Bank Place in Kanata. A couple rows below us, an old man was trying to get back to his seat. Instead of the people getting up and standing, the poor man almost fell over the row, into the next one. It was horrible!
Just take the two seconds to stand up and everyone will then be able to enjoy the show in peace. Yes, it gets annoying, I'll admit, but it's better then having to deal with an accidental death because someone was too fucking lazy.

Anyway, that's that.
The show itself was amazing. They really did a great job, and even I was impressed and gained a little bit more respect for Micheal. The acts were outstanding, the dancing was wonderful, and even the music belted out everywhere. It was a great show, and they did a fantastic job. I'm glad I got to witness it.

Micheal Jackson had swag.

Last night, October 5th, 2011, one of my best friends dad passed away due to a long battle with cancer. It was heartbreaking for the entire family, as well as close friends that knew him. I even found myself crying, due to the loss of someone who once had been around.

Casey Krzyzanowski, you were a great man and father. You were loved by so many people, myself included. I can't even begin to imagine the pain you felt while you battled for your life. I can't begin to imagine the pain your family, Zosia especially must be feeling right now, but I know and so do they, that you loved them all very much. You're in a better place now, looking down on your babies. Please remember that you died with dignity, and that your children, Sus and everyone who was close enough to know you, are extremely proud of you.
You will be missed, every minute, every day.
We all love you so much; hope you're having fun up wherever you are.
Rest In Peace

Forbidden love

This is what I was watching last night, or better yet, till 4 o'clock this morning. It's about three guys that end up dealing with the fact that they're in love... with guys. It's the first time I've ever seen an Anime based on two guys being in love, and it caught my eye. I have a lot of gay friends, whom I love dearly, and it was kind of cool to see it  into something I love even more!
Usually, Animes and Mangas show girls being sexual with each other - as most viewers and readers are guys, and it's a guys fantasy. However, this show is more then just sex, and in fact, shows little sexual content aside from kissing. This is truly based on emotions of love and fear and how they deal with being in love with a man, because to them it isn't normal. It's stated many times "And he's a guy" as if it's a bad thing!
I found it rather amusing and heartwarming, as I watched their lives intertwine and come together and thought I'd share it :)
Anyway, I am off to work for now! Eight hour shifts are just THE best. (Praying for that Second Cup job!)
Talk to you later!

October 4, 2011

This is my baby, Buttons.
Today, I managed to finally get a nice picture of him! He doesn't usually enjoy having his photo taken, probably because of the flash, or he's asleep. He's my best friend and I love him bunches (&oats).
Today was a good day, went shopping and got myself a new blazer for my interview on Wednesday. Hopefully it's byebye Mcdonalds, hello Second Cup!

I had a great heart to heart with one of my best friends, one that was needed and it made me think a lot about life and how much people change over the course of their years. It makes me happy that somewhere along the road, I decided I wasn't going to live the way I was anymore, and I changed. It made me realize how great-full I am to have the people I have in my life, because without them, I wouldn't be able to get up every day and do the things I need to do.
Today was a good day, and tonight I shall sleep with a smile.

Gotta catch 'em all.

 This is my life, always and forever.

Manic Mondays

So today kind of put me on edge.
It was emotionally stressful, and physically draining, dealing with an epileptic brother (whom I love loads and loads), but I managed to pull through and get my day done. It was a good end, Starbucks and good friends. This week has high hopes, and I'm excited to see what it brings!
Tomorrow is a new day and I'm ready to conquer it.

Hi there

I'm Tara, otherwise known as Tarawr, or any other crazy nickname you can think of! I decided to start this blog as a good way to get my photography up and running. I'm still currently in high school, but I plan on going to college for a Photography course.
I don't really know what I'm supposed to do here, but I feel as if it'll help me a lot. I love to write, and often find myself writing in a Journal type style most days, so maybe this will become a substitute for that, as well! We shall see.
But for now, I should probably go get ready - the rain is making me feel gross, but the day is still in full bloom.
Talk to you soon!
