One of Andrea’s kids. Trying to entertain you!

Hi all!

Sarah here. turns out I used to post here a few years back (Well, I did a few times at least) so I figured I might as well post here again as my mother is pretty busy with her work. since I know a lot of relatives read this, I’ll make a list of what I’ve been up to. Since there are a lot of people who read this who aren’t related to me, I’ll try to say something funny. At least once.

I’ve already gotten my first graphic design job! One of our neighbors owns a home business, and she came over one day, asking for help. She was talking about some posters she needed done for a womens conference that was coming up. Seeing as I have been jobless for awhile, and this isn’t exactly the most active place in the province (Oh, I think a car might have driven by today. Most exciting thing to happen this week. I speak the truth. Just ask my pet unicorn.) I said that I would be able to do it. It actually only took me 5 hours to make some posters for her, she liked them so much that she cried on my shoulder. Happy customer, I got paid for it, it’s all good.

I also happen to be graduating this year. That really makes me feel old, because in my mind I’m still about 12. I just took the CAT’s a couple weeks ago, which was my first standardized test. I haven’t taken any tests for school since about grade 5, but I still think I did pretty well. My favorite part was when I did the spelling section in three minutes when I had a total of fifteen minutes to do it. Obviously all that time on the computer paid off.

Music wise, I’m still playing guitar. I have two now, an acoustic and an electric. I would say the song that I’m the best at is ‘Blackbird’ by The Beatles, which actually took me about a month (!!!) to learn. It’s very fun to play though. My music collection is still.. really big. At last count I had 207 albums, not counting cassettes/compilation albums, plus I’ve picked up a few since then. My three favorite bands are, at current, Matthew Good/Band, The Stills and Radiohead. Most of the music I listen to is Canadian or British, with exceptions for some awesome bands (Queens Of The Stone Age, Margot & The Nuclear So And So’s.) When we drive around in the car I’m usually in charge of the music, so Mom’s been listening to some interesting stuff for sure. For anyone interested, feel free to add me on my last.fm.

I also finally got myself a flickr account. Mom had been posting a lot of pictures I took on hers, so I figured I might as well get my own. I tend to do a lot of “I’m going to take a picture of everything I do today” memes, which is why there’s so many pictures of sandwiches. There are far too many pictures of sandwiches on that account. This is starting to make me hungry.

To prove to you how serious I am, here is a picture of me wearing Emma’s coat:

Obviously this is going to make people take me seriously. Right? (I must note, this is not the first picture of my wearing Emma’s coat.)

Hopefully this made up for Mom’s lack of updates, I will try and remember to post again soon (Until I see something shiny, that is.) provided I have things to post about it. Even if I don’t, I could probably dig out some ideas for TV shows I’ve had in the past and pitch them to you. The best part is that they’re actually funny.

  1. Hi Sarah! Entertaining post! Graduating! Wow! Are you going anywhere next year? C6 says Hi to Emma!

  2. Nice to “meet” you, Sarah. I found your post very entertaining and I look forward to more of them. I wish you lived closer because I think you and my Sarah would get along quite good – you seem to both have much the same quirky humor and a lot of the same interests.

  3. Hi honey, great post! Love……….Mam

  4. Sounds like you are busy Sarah. Congrats on the graphic design job. Do you plan on pursuing more of that? I know someone that runs his own business doing graphic design and he loves it. Personally, I think working for yourself is a great gig. Sometimes hard work building up clients and things, but worth it to be able to do what you love.

    I might have to check out some of your music. It sounds good.

  5. So good of you to fill us in when your mom is so busy. Congrats on graduating. In my mind I’m 22.
