I remember when I was doing the Architectural Technician course in college the first time learning about how our regulations compare to ones in England and how many of their buildings would not be allowed here. It was known for quite some time that this shit should not have been happening.

This is great ! Now we just have to somehow get stupid tourist to stop getting in the bears space!

I'm working on narrowing it down. I would like nursing and a lot of the women in my family are nurses however it's got to the point where they even recommend I don't due to how nurses are treated these days. Overworked and underpaid like crazy. It used to be a good job but now it's just not worth it. Being a doctor might be enjoyable but I'm not sure I would enjoy being a general practioner and honestly it's a lot of school/training. The massage therapy thing was alright and I really enjoyed it when I was actually fixing something but I don't enjoy it as much when it's relaxation massage. I also don't think my body could handle it for very long. Currently I'm thinking midwife so I'll mull that over for a bit and see if I'm still feeling it in a week. I would love to study something and do research but I'm not sure I would enjoy that either. I have to move around a lot in a day, it's why I work in the restaurant industry currently.

Once I get done work my options are softball, sit on the grass if it's nice, day drink in Banff, hike, or there are even places to swim apparently if I don't have some sort of boat handy. I think I'll stick with this life even though the weather is interesting some days.

Dude it snowed on and off today, some summer solstice we had. Still spent every second outside I could but I mean damn.

An oddly insightful post came up on facebook today from that Humans of New York page

    “My English is not good. Spoken English is very difficult. But I want to study at Columbia so I am trying to improve. I decided to come to America because of Forrest Gump. I’ve watched the movie five times. I like Forrest very much. Forrest is very simple. He picks one thing, and he keeps going. When I was young, I thought Forrest was stupid. But now I have a different view. I think people are too complicated. They complain about everything. Forrest never complains. Forrest chooses one thing and he keeps going. I watched the movie last month to encourage me. My life is hard because people don’t ever know what I’m saying. But I just think of Forrest. Forrest figured everything out because he just kept going.”

The guy has a point.

A lot of my self worth is tied into other people because I like to be needed. I've been struggling with that lately and realized down the road I was going to end up as one of those moms who turns down help from everybody then complains that nobody helps/appreciates her. Not to mention a lot of my helping tends to be little things in the background that I don't ask for thanks over but still expect people to appreciate that I'm helping. If somebody lost something I'll help them find it, I'll research things people need help with and it goes on really. I wanted to cheer up the players who struck out while playing softball the other night on the team I was playing against. I'm not even good at the sport and I still want to help others at the very least get to my level which is sometimes hitting the ball. Go me for not getting knocked up in high school. I don't even date those guys who can't do their own laundry. I bet I could have a long frustrating relationship with one of them.

So I'm thinking I should pick a career where I'm helping people, but I've also got to figure out how to appreciate myself for helping myself.

Wha, the article I read said he didn't say anything. Also why would he approach people with a rifle in a targeted shooting if he wasn't sure they were the people he wanted to shoot ? I mean he didn't just happen to stumble across a GOP baseball team, he already knew they were there.

Somebody made that up so regular everyday republicans can feel they aren't safe since the guy was shooting republicans. It's just like how the shooter in Ottawa years back was shooting at "anybody" in parliament yet people freak out about how they qualify as "anybody" by being anywhere.

Finally went out canoeing and it was beautiful out. I always feel a little bad when it's raining/foggy since this might be somebodies only day here but the fog makes the mountains/lake look really nice and calm. I'll take a picture of that next.

I fully intended to post this yesterday but I played baseball instead. I love summer.

Personally when I got waves of feeling like shit I lie down with my back on my bed (or floor) and with my legs pressed straight up against the wall. I think the heaviness you start to feel in your legs takes you out of your head with the help of some good music of course. Headphones work better than speaker.

It doesn't solve my problems but it gets me back to life.

Planning to go canoeing on Lake Louise today, will update with pictures later if that works out.

Edit: crummy cloudy day, will probably go Sunday for the sunrise instead.
