Irreplaceable space

I can’t remember our first kiss. I don’t know what that means. Is this what happens? Gradually my memories will fade, and become replaced with new people, and new times? I don’t want to forget you. I don’t want to have a day where i wake up and I can’t remember your smell, or your touch, or the hidden freckles you have. I know what I’ve lost, but I don’t want to lose it all. I just want to keep a part of you tucked away, irreplaceable space.

bang bang – I shot you down

The follow up to my archery adventure was some shooting lessons. I went with two of my friends to the range and got a chance to try out shooting a few different types of guns. What a rush! I had no idea how powerful guns could be. I always knew that larger guns had a kick to them, but you really can’t imagine how intense it is until you try it. When I took my first shot with the shotgun I nearly toppled over. Thankfully my friend knew that I would need assistance and had his hand behind my shoulder to brace me from the kickback. I got a chance to shoot a pistol, rifle, shotgun and a Remington 30-06. The Remington was my favourite gun to shoot because it had a ton of power but wasn’t as aggressive as the shotgun. At the end of the night we brought in an old TV and shot that – obviously the boys idea. It was actually really cool though 🙂 I had a great time shooting, and look forward to trying it again. I would like to learn how to shoot more accurately with the pistol. Overall, I would highly recommend trying out a shooting range if you haven’t been! If you are a smaller girl, I wouldn’t go near the bigger guns – it will hurt you. Im pretty sure my shoulder is still a little bruised from the shotgun. Pistols however are a great option, and the rush you feel is very unique.

Let em fly

I am always on the hunt for cool new activities to try. I love learning new things, especially sports, and I think its important to constantly challenge yourself. When I was little, I always wanted to try archery. Unfortunately, It was never easily accessible, so I never got a chance to give it a shot – hehe. Just recently, I found out that one of my friends at work is a national level archer, and he kindly agreed to teaching me! I won’t lie, its not the easiest thing to learn, but it was a ton of fun. It is such a good feeling when you hit the target, even if it was just a fluke. Hopefully, I can go a few more times so I can learn to improve my aim. Next on the docket is the shooting range! Gotta upgrade from bows to guns 😉

Younger – Seinabo Sey

I would highly recommend purchasing the album For Madeline by Seinabo Sey. Her EP is $4.74 on iTunes, and seriously, money well spent! Each song has a great vibe, and Its very easy listening. The perfect car music. Check her out!!

Cookie Monster

My best friend just celebrated her 25th birthday, and we splashed out on the most incredible cake for the occasion. I’m not the biggest cake fan, but put a plate of soft cookies out and they will be gone. The cake we bought was layers of two types of thin soft cookies and buttercream icing. One cookie was cookies and cream, and the other was a standard chocolate chip. They used hot pink frosting to add a beautiful contrast, and it tasted as good as it looked! Seriously, I almost went into a sugar coma, totally worth it. If you’re looking for something different and delicious to serve at a party, cookie layer cakes are the way to go!
