A time-lapse of a nightless Icelandic summer

Stumbled across this, and it’s just breath-taking!!
I love the colour of the sky, it would feel so magical to lay out at night underneath! Just beautiful

Unemployment Days 3, 4 &5

11 Feb

Well I made it through week 1 of unemployment (well almost, it’s still only 1:30 on Friday, but that’s close enough) unscathed! I tried to be as productive as possible this week, and I guess I got a lot done! Surprisingly though, not as much reading as I was hoping too.

I do still have a lot of time on my hands, and I devoted some of that TO my hands

Oh ya, I did Cheetah nails! They actually didn’t take all that long, besides waiting for one colour of polish to dry before starting the next. And I used a Sally Hansen nail art pen for the spots! I followed the simple directions on this youtube video:

I also got caught up on the second season of Shameless, a show I am a HUGE fan of! And I found this funny Tumblr about those lovable Gallaghers,¬†http://mandymilkobitch.tumblr.com/, if you watch the show then you know there’s a lot of swearing, and as this blog is mainly GIFs from the show, it’s got a lot of swearing, so forewarning haha!

And I took a bunch of pictures of my dog and ran them through some easy online editing process. Oh how I amuse myself!

Have a good weekend!

Unemployment here I come!

3 Feb

Today is the last day of my 1 year internship, so on Monday I will be officially unemployed! Everyone kept asking me if my contract would get renewed and I would just stay with this non-profit org, but my internship was through a gov’t program and you can only ever be part of the program once, sooo the org will be getting someone new, and I get a lot of free time!

And I am not good at free time! I’m trying not to be too worried about money just yet, as I can apply for employment insurance, and I’ve applied to a couple really good positions, but the mining company and the town I applied for are notoriously slow with their hiring process. So for the next few weeks while I’m sitting by the phone, I’ll have to keep myself occupied! I promise to not go to loopy on you guys, and keep my posts from being super depressing! Promise me you’ll post some funny youtube videos in the comment section to keep me entertained?

The good thing is I will be able to get back into some old hobbies I didn’t have much time for before! I used to scrapbook a lot, but that can become really time consuming and all of a sudden 5 hours have passed and the living room is covered floor to wall with glitter and scraps of paper! So I’m looking forward to having more time to do that, and I’ll be able to hit in the gym at a quiet time, so I expect to be pretty jacked in a month. hahaha! I’ll be able to check out lots of new blogs as well, and I would like to try and post more on here myself. Also, thankfully so many people got me books for my birthday and Christmas, so I’ll be able to fly through my reading list, and maybe catch up on some shows I’ve been meaning to watch – I’m more into watching series right now instead of movies – Empire Boardwalk, Shameless, The Finder, etc! BUT, I’ll also be watching all the Oscar nominated movies for best picture too, so I guess I’ll have enough stuff to do to keep my occupied for 2 weeks…. hopefully I’ll have a new job by then!

EEKK!! Wish me luck!

My new life:
