Toronto ;)

So I have been very busy lately, took a little hiatus but guess who back. What have I been doing? Well I disappeared to Toronto for a week. Never there before, first time on a plane as well. So let me tell you all about it.

First off the plane ride…. NEVER have I ever been on a plane before and I’m also really terrified of heights and something about a huge hunk of metal up in the sky, just hanging out was a little bit scary. Lucky for me it was just a two hour plane ride…that’s long enough. But the ride went smooth, looking at the clouds and being in the clouds was a whole new experience, seemed peaceful, quiet and calm. The view of looking at the ground from so far up and seeing all the lights and everything just mapped out perfectly was something else. Then we landed. I made it alive!


View from where I was staying. Also very pretty to see lit up at night…but my phone would not take a good quality picture of it and the smog in the air did not help. But on a clear night it was something else


Let’s face it the only thing I really wanted to see was the Toronto Humane Society. It for sure amazed me. It was so big and so clean. Really well done facility. I even went back a second time. I have been considering moving to TO obviously this would be my first choice when on the job hunt. But I’m still thinking about it. Who knows what will happen.


The CN Tower and you can see the skydome peeking out from behind the building. I did not go on the CN tower and I had no motivation or intentions to go up there. Glass floors way up there. No thank you. I’ll save my money and enjoy the view from the bottom.


I went to Center Island/Toronto Island. This island is big and even has an airport right on it. I didn’t visit much on the island just a few things and the beach. There was a few swans hanging around.


This was a nice foundation area, down by city hall. I believe the heads on the post all around the pool each piece represented a part of the Chinese New Year.


I managed to be in Toronto for Canada Day. The CN Tower all lit up at night in the colors of the Canadian flag. I told you I would enjoy the view from the ground. 🙂


City Hall, I thought the building design was pretty neat.


What’s a trip to Toronto without going to a blue jays game. Yes I did go, but for the record I only went to experience the game for my sister who could not be there to go to the game.


the white thing in between the pitcher and the batter…well that’s the ball. I managed to get a picture of it.


The statue represented all the types of fans at a ball game.


Remember the first picture with the trees and showing the tall buildings, well in the trees there was a random farm and of course when I saw these cows I had to take a picture 🙂


I went to a lot of places, and saw a lot of Toronto in just a short time. I also went to the zoo, but all of those pictures will be posted another time. 🙂 I also failed at the 31 days challenge for those keeping up with it, I don’t know if I will be finishing it. But my summer is going good. I will be heading home at the beginning of August to visit my family. Hope everyone is enjoying their summer!

When People Get Insulted When You Delete Them From Facebook….

As the world become so ridiculously dumb, that when someone deleted you from facebook, your first reaction is to block them. Honestly, and it’s always those people who don’t like you, so you get mad and block them, so they can never ever see your facebook, see any comments you make, you just don’t exist to them anymore. Do we really need that  many fake ass friends?

If I delete you from facebook, its because I don’t like you, you don’t like me, you do nothing but talk bad about me, you start liking my pictures like were friends and commenting all nice thing…when really your a moron and all you do is talk shit and you don’t think I am aware of it. So I delete you and you get upset asking your friends if I deleted them and your all insulted, So then you block me so I can see anything. When really if I wanted to, I’d just make a fake account and see everything…Oh wait I already have one of those 🙂   It kinda funny because there a few people who have blocked me because I deleted them, like really I don’t need fake facebook friends thank you very much. And then only time I notice is when I need to message someone about something important to do with work, or something else along those lines, and you can’t find them. Or your creeping things on the fake account and up pops all their messages and comments on things. It actually entertaining to watch….

Are people that obsessed with facebook that they get mad when you unfriend them. WE WEREN’T FRIENDS IN THE FIRST PLACE! WHY DO YOU WANT TO BE MY FACEBOOK FRIEND!…..

It’s so funny, I can sit and giggle about it all day…. it is actually entertaining….Image

30 Day Challenge- 10-14

I’m clearly no good at this challenge…

10. Describe your most embarrasing moment.

I do a lot of stupid stuff, most embarrasing however I can’t really think of anything, so I’m going to leave it at that.

11. Describe 10 pet peeves you have.


PEOPLE ON FACEBOOK WHEN THEY SHOULD BE WORKING!- Read the profession facebooker blog if you need a better explanation.

Two- Faced People – You know those ones that are all nice to you to your face, and yet behind your back they have a million things to say. I still deal with immature people like this. Some people just never grow up

People who think they know EVERYTHING!, and I mean everything, they are experts and they know it all, they are never wrong….wake up! In the real world, we are are wrong once in a while and we all don’t know everything!

Corn, Carrots, Onions – They are just disgusting

Smokers – Not only is smoking gross and annoying, but the need for everyone to stop what they are doing and all go out for a smoke break together… you might as well just ask someone to hold  your hand while you go take a crap….

Bullies – Enough Said!

People who don’t spay and neuter their animals, thank you for making my work days full of sad days with the over population of kittens

Spiders- Why do you need to live in my house and why do you need to be so bigger and gross, go away..or at least go hide in the basement….I never go down there anyways

People who bash my work – I’m sorry let me see you deal with the 50 kittens that came in, half of which were sick and had to be euthanized, along with the other millions of cats and kittens that come into the doors on a regular basis, and tell me that we are all heartless, money hungry people who don’t care. You my friend are the one who doesn’t care, I don’t see you doing anything to help fix the problem!

12. Describe a typical day in your current life.

Wake up, dogs out, change clothes, put the radio on, check on/ feed foster if any…off to work all day, home to clean/feed/take dogs out, shower and bed….repeat… a day off is wake up, dogs out, off to do errands, shelter to spend time with some of the dogs, home to spend time with my dogs, and relax and sleep…..

13. Describe 5 weaknesses you have. 14. Describe 5 strengths you have.

I don’t really know if I can describe five weaknesses, I don’t really know if I really am aware of my weaknesses, I know I’m very emotional person, I get attached to animals very easy and always end up heartbroken, because I get attached to those who usually don’t make it in an animal shelter…maybe that is a weakness? Maybe that is a strength? It takes a strong person to be able to constantly attach yourself to these animals who more then likely will not make it? Some would say it’s a strength, some would say it’s a weaknesses, why do I set myself up for heartbreak? Maybe because it’s not about me, it’s about the animals, and making their time worth it and experience they have from now until their time will be a good one. That’s how I see it.

I fight for what I believe in, no one will ever tell me difference, I will listen and see things from every different side…but my opinion on things is my opinion, not anyone else.

“My weakness is that I care too much”-Papa Roach “Scars” – I just to live by that quote, I felt it summed up a big part of me, But is caring to much really a weakness? In a way yes, but In a way maybe not. It takes a strong person to care a lot I think nowadays.

My weaknesses, and my strengths I’ll leave for those who really know me to decided, or my followers, I try to give you guys a lot of my person feelings and thoughts, and as much as I can about my work…maybe you will be able to decided if you think my caring is a strength or a weakness…




They Know….


It was one of those days today. I befriended this dog a few weeks ago. He was a cutie, a little nervous of his surroundings but nothing in my eyes that was major concern. Today was his day, to see if he would make it for adoption. Unfortunately he did not make it. I went to go find him, knowing in the back of my head it was not good for him. I found him in his kennel, in a pool of his own drool. He was anxious, he was nervous….. he knew.

As I sat outside of his kennel, with my hand on the fence, he placed his paw up onto my hand. We weren’t very close friends, but I was still his special someone who would take him out for a run every now and then. I told him to sit, he did, give paw, he did, lay down, he did. He kept licking my hand, still drooling. I took him out for one last run, it the dog park, let him off leash and he just ran around, happy.

They know, they all know. Dogs are not dumb. It’s sad to see, when they start doing things out of the ordinary for them. I always see something in those with issues. They have a life before they end up in a shelter, they didn’t just come from nowhere, they all came from somewhere, someones home, someones family, and now they are just a stray with a time limit, and no one comes looking for them….

My heart hurts for them. Especially those ones who are so scared, right up until there last moments. You just want to tell them it’s okay, tell them it is alright, and that you are there for them and not going to hurt them. I looked into the eyes of one of those dogs today. He finally came up to me, let me pet his nose. Those sad scared eyes looking at me. I told him it was going to be okay, he won’t have to be scared anymore, he will finally be at peace soon.

There is so much good that comes from an animal shelter, but behind the scenes there is all these sad moments, sad cases. Days where you just want to quit, because you can’t take it anymore. How do people treat animals so badly. How do you just lose your animal and not bother to look for it, how this and how that. You wouldn’t abandon your child, why is it okay to abandon an animal?

Professional Facebooker

Professional Facebooker is something I made up. Well I don’t know if I really made it up, but it refers to those people who sit at work all day and do nothing but sit on facebook. So basically they are getting paid to sit on facebook all day, while the rest of us are working our butts off. It’s like the phone ringing, but having a conversation with so and so is much more important. Someone has entered the door, but commenting on a thread on a facebook page comes first then greeting your customers. ITS SO ANNOYING!

I feel like someone could be dying and it’s like oh no I got to check my comments first. When does this ever stop? As far as I see it social media does not belong in the work place. Unless you are a promoter or some sort of marketing person, where your audience is facebook, but even then, is it necessary to be on facebook all dam day!

Then you have those work jobs, like mine, where you see someone saying something completely negative about your work and how things are run on some facebook group. But you are not allowed to comment, we can not defend ourselves to social media,and really it does make you look better if your not on there trolling people. But then you have your professional facebookers on there defending the job. NO! go to work, do your job that you got hired to do. Let people rant and rave, no matter what you say will not change their opinion, so shut up and get to work!

It’s pretty bad if the internet logs show facebook as the number one site being used, and not your company site or whatever. It’s like people have nothing else to do but sit on facebook, like what were you doing before facebook? Maybe doing your job? Maybe just walking around doing nothing? When you go to work and open up the internet browser and open facebook up BEFORE you do anything else, then something is really wrong.

There some people who I think should have Professional Facebooker as their job title on their resumes, because they are clearly not doing anything else that qualifies them for their job when all they can do is be on facebook all day long. That is my rant for this long day!

8. High school Liberian – She was always there for me during high school, when I was having a hard time or just a sad day. I could go and talk to her, I didn’t even have to talk, just sitting there and taking some time out was good enough. She always believed in me, and loved animals as much as me.

Sorry I can’t think of a 9 and 10.
