Finished Mourning...

My dearest is gone, so far o' so far
more distant than I would ever wish,
but my dependency on a metal thing
has all waned away to nothing
than a simple
of insecurity.

I am fine.

This is my ode to it.


Yes, I have officially made my final good-byes to my PDA. I have even gone so far to replace it and my old cell phone with new one. The functions aren't nearly the same, but I figure that it can't hurt me to revert back to the ways of old - the tried and true - and used the old noggin.

Heaven forbid I use the brain that God gave me!

Seriously, I took technology for granted, and I am happy to be back in the arms of the old school ways...

Crazy, Busy Life

Life seems crazy right now. There's so much to do to finish up this year: paper after paper, projects and exams. Plus, afterward, I'm starting up full-time work at Starbucks (it'll do right now) and there's the issue of moving out or bussing...even the insane idea of getting a car!

Then, the wedding. Sure, it's a year away, but there's so much leg work to do right now! A venue, a venue... we need to choose soon.

Plus, my PDA just died, so I now have no day timer or device to use as my "laptop." I have to go out and buy one.

But, life is still awesome. I've family and friends, love and laughter, and God.

I just wish that there were more hours in the day...

The Frustration of a Dress

How can something so serene, so pure and so beautiful cause me so much despair?

It seems like every dress picture in every magazine and on every website are meant for people who are so insecure of themselves that they need a million Swarski crystals to make up for it.

What ever happened to simple elegance? Grace Kelly (the late Princess of Monaco) rarely wore any jewelry except the occasional appearance of pearls and she remained renowned for her inner and outer beauty...and sheer sophistication.

I really don't want to have to get a dress made, but if I have to, I must. I will try shopping around first. The good news is that I found one place in North York that will rent the same dresses that one can buy. Sigh, to only find one within budget... I refuse to pay more than $350 for a dress that I will only wear once, but I still do not want to look cheap as I walk down the aisle. To only find a happy medium.

It's not that I am stressed, but only wondering how long it will take me to find a dress...

Anyway, these are all some of my favorite dresses, but I would love to find one with vintage flare.

I do believe that the right one will come along as since God had His hand in getting Adam and I together, I'm completely sure that His hand will be in all the details of the wedding, too.
