I hope everyone had a good time during the holidays and that you all celebrated with your loved ones! I took some times off from work and pretty much everything in life to rest and recharge myself. I also took some time to reflect back on 2012.
January was quiet and I found an amazing hairdresser (Noah @ Paris Coiffure Dorval ) at the end of the month and decided to fully commit to my pink hair by bleaching it! Things got serious in February with the student strikes everywhere and I was overwhelmed with the stress of how it would affect my studies: if someone is going to fuck my studies up, it’s going to be me, not students on strike (selfish, don’t care) so I got involved in the “NO” movement in my school. I never got involved in any school politics before so it was interesting and I met amazing people and learned so much about myself. I then celebrated my birthday quietly with my family with cake and flowers
Spring brought bad news… remember that bit about fucking up my studies… well that’s kinda what happened and I failed two classes. The news truly destroyed me and I didn’t really know what to do so I did a little bit a retail therapy and decided to focus on my job instead. I had no idea what to do about school at that point so least I could do was so focus on becoming someone within the company. I also attended the GlossyBox party where I met a lot of amazing bloggers, like Sarah-Jane who’s reallllly inspirational!
By July, I was burned out so I took a week off to travel to… Connecticut. Not as wild and exotic as South Korea but I was really happy to catch up with Braeden and to learn how to fish. I also got super long extensions (oh that I miss dearly!!) and attended Otakuthon as Babydoll from Sucker Punch! I got the ok from my neurologist and finally got my learner’s and started learning how to drive!!
From Otakuthon, my cosplay fever was back and I cosplayed Zatanna at the Montreal ComicCon and wore my Black Cat ( Felicia Hardy ) cosplay at a club and won 300$! To solve my little schooling problem, I decided to give university a shot and took one class of Mandarin at Université de Montréal. I also decided that it was time to redecorate my room… my computer also decided that it didn’t want to live anymore so I welcomed my first iMac instead ( dear Dell laptop, you are SO not missed!). I had enough of pink hair so I dyed it lavender/lilac!
The year ended by me falling sick again but that didn’t stop me from working and then taking some time off. I was back to myself by January 31st and started the new year partying!
Overall, I think 2013 had extreme lows and extreme highs. I am way happier today than I was a year ago and I think I’ve grown a lot as a person from 2012.
I’m a little bit late but happy new year everyone 3>
