I'm looking for a black-lined design of a birch tree leaf (sort of dynamic / blowing in the wind kind of thing) - Can anyone make or find one? I am being too dense to come up with one I like.

Two wishes are:
- Must be dynamic (as described above).
- Must be identifiable as a leaf from upside-down.

Sometimes, I peruse some of the sites I am still watching on here, and read some of the comments. And sometimes I get very happy I no longer am part of the crew here who have to deal with it :)

So, I'm quite upset. I've never been good with guys - especially, handling situations where you have to tell someone that you are not interested. I'm a stickler for truth, so I can't just pull the old "Sorry I have a bf." trick, seeing as - well - I don't!

Anyway, there is this colleague of mine (the second within a short period of time) who has been pouring his heart out in my general direction, and I am starting to wonder... Am I that broken by now that nothing moves me? Am I too picky? Am I telling the truth when I say that dating colleagues goes against my principles? And also, will shaving my head help in preventing this situation from happening again? So many questions, so few answers.

Final thought: How much of a sissy am I to be crying about being liked; it's much more upsetting to put yourself in such a vulnerable position like this only to get rejected.

So, this Saturday I'll be in Ottawa, and on Sunday I am flying to Madrid and, maybe, somewhere else as well during the 2 weeks business stay in Spain.

Yes! Change, here I come!

Back from the best journey I ever made :) I already miss the open spaces, the warm summer air, the corn fields and the bear.

Thanks to everyone who crossed their fingers for me, I'm very touched. I have gotten half (granted, the easier half) of my journey done and so far your magic has worked, things have (for the most part) turned out better than I had hoped :) The thing I am very afraid of is going to happen tomorrow though ... anyway. Onto other thoughts for now, as there's nothing else to be done but sit and wait.

WoW talk (skip it if you're gonna be sick):

So I have a holy priest whose secondary spec is shadow. I've been toying with the idea of DPSing, but on target dummy trials I can't pull out more than 2.7k (like, EVER). 2.7k being the highest I get when absolutely concentrating. Does anyone have tips, tricks, ... anything?

Today's a really warm, friendly, sunny and surprisingly relaxed Monday. I could live with Mondays like this for the rest of my life (sadly, though, if there's no chaos on Monday, Tuesday may become the new dreaded day).

Work's gonna keep me busy for the next days, a LOT, but I like it - takes away the pressure of having to deal with other things ;)

This weekend my hotwater tank broke (yes, broke) and flooded the carpeted apartment like a tsunami. My landlord spent hours replacing the old with a new tank, setting of the smoke detector every so often with the fumes from the soldering (I am glad to report that there is no chance I might sleep through a fire with that thing buzzing). I any case though, the hot water's back and I'm off to abuse it.

How is / was your Monday, my friend?

Long time no see. I am getting tired of writing "OMG how are you all??? Haven't been here in agesss!" But I still wonder :D How HAVE you been?

I have been - well, a mixture of all emotions the big void can possibly put in us! ;) But overall it's been great, or, at the very least, a great deal of things has happened.
First of all, I moved back to Ste-Adele, little shabby village in the Laurentides. I like it. Me and my roommate-slash-crazy-norwegian-girl are furnishing everything from scratch and have spent a lovely time (and a lot of money) doing so. Funny enough, we always end up liking the same stuff and thus our rooms are similar, if not the same.
I am feeling homey and nice, though I'm getting tired of St-Hub's and ordering pizza (it shall come to an end soonish).
What else? I am still playing WoW and lured my friend into playing again as well. I'm evil like that :P

Soooooo... how you doin'?

Mwah it´s been a while, hasn´t it? So what´s going on with me?

First of all, I have been working my ass off like a maniac. Last week was my all-time high of 73 hours in a single week. It´s something you can actually get used to, though it should be avoided at all cost. But then again ... I am kind of enjoying it. I´m not half bad at what I´m doing as long as I know what I´m doing, if that makes any sense. Longer days and more work was kind of implied in my promotion anyway (although I did not expect that I would thus spend 70% of my days writing emails and the rest more or less waiting on emails so I can send more emails back). I keep thinking how I never dreamed of being a Project Manager or any manager, as a matter of fact ... but then again, who does.
Secondly, me and the Fred just bought a 40' HD TV. Another thing that I didn´t really see coming, but it´s huge and pretty and only just so fit into the car ;)
And thirdly ... I´m getting a little better at French, but I also get the impression that I will never REALLY feel at home in this "country" Québec. I read in my company´s policies the other day, and it says something like:
"Preference of language: If two candidates for a position have the same qualities, the one who knows French will be appointed."
"Preference of minorities: If two candidates for a position have the same qualities, the one who belongs to one of these groups will be appointed: women, disabled, visual minority."
I guess it makes sense, but I am not impressed. There are 18 Project Managers at my company and 3 of them - including myself - are women :P

So! Spring, eh! Probably old news for anyone, but here it's only been days ago when I saw wild flowers bloom for the first time this year. Spring and the according temperatures well over 0 degrees came onl recently, but we all waited long and it feels like a downright pleasure to walk around without a coat! :)

How's life everyone? It's good for me, most of the time anyway (nobody can or should be happy all the time ;P). I miss you guys and my Germany, that might be the only downside to it right now. I send you all my love though, you know it! <3

So lately I'm having a bit of a rough time. With people constantly leaving, it is hard to keep friends (and a good mood) somehow. But such is life and a benefit always has a negative side somehow.
I also somehow feel between the chairs, if this is making any sense. Time is running somehow, nothing is getting done, I feel like life passes in front of me and I miss it all >< Anyway, away with these negative thoughts!

Outside of my head, the world is looking quite interesting here. We are having a lot of snow (and then some), it hardly ever gets over 0, and if it does it's only for a short time - it always snows, seems like it will never stop again. Yes, winter, in its full mighty power still holds Canada in its clutches (and won't let go).
