    Crumpton

    February 9 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ -15 °C

    Pretty chill day at work, Brad was feeling sick so wasnt coming in for the night but I pretty much finished everything. We got a bunch of food too.
    Boudie messaged me during the day saying that Crump hasnt been doing too well and that he might appreciate a call.
    Fuck yeah Boudie, that was really cool of him.
    I had a call with Crump, he said this has been the toughest part of his recovery. He started having a real problem with prostitutes, needing to borrow money to go see them.
    But he stopped that now.
    He's planning on doing steroids now. He feels like he needs to be doing something and it's always to the extreme. Wants to rebel and is tired of being sober.
    Wants to have a connection with someone.
    He isnt talking to his sponsor about it because he doesn't want to be told no.
    I hope he feels ok.
    Fuck he's funny though, I'm always laughing when I talk to Crump.

    Calls back home

    February 8 in Canada ⋅ ☁️ -13 °C

    I was on commons today but helped Brad strip beds for alot of the morning. Finished at about 4:30.
    Joe had called me, turned out he had been emailing me about the walk footage he was going to send to my family and stuff.
    Them dad called, he had been thrown to the ground by 2 police men in the middle of the night.
    Then mum called, she was in Melbourne and might be coming to Canada with dad now.
    Spoke to fitz, he was going camping. Been planning stuff for Canada which is exciting.
    Spoke to Trot, he seems really well. Always a laugh talking to trotter.
    Then I watched harry potter and the half blood prince. The movies skip so much when you've read the book.

    Banana cake #2

    February 7 in Canada ⋅ ☁️ -16 °C

    I went for first chair with pheobe, pretty cold so just did about an hour.
    I had a bath when I got home, reading zen physics.
    Baked my second banana cake with whole wheat flour. It turned out really well. Then I ended up watching harry potter and the order of the Phoenix as I've been wanting to watch the later ones and they just got put on Netflix.
    Then I went and did yoga in the kids centre. Daria came back and we meditated in the pitch black. She was really cold, poor thing.
    Then I met up with will, nat and heather at globe and we had vegan tapas. It was delicious, only 30 bucks.
    They came back and had some cake and played a couple of games.

    Ski Patroll #2

    February 6 in Canada ⋅ ☀️ -18 °C

    Had to he at ski patrol for 7:45. It was -22 degrees or so in the morning. -37 on top with wind chill.
    I rugged up pretty well and used some hand warmers which are a life saver.
    I got paired up with TJ and he was alpine pod leader and on black forest.
    The bullet was closed because of wind so we put up fences and closed signs first off.
    We did one run of millies mile and nearly got to the bottom when we got a call for an injury.
    It was a 72 yo man who had fallen off the side heading down to black forest.
    He had a pretty bad memory loss. Couldn't remember how he got there or what he had for breakfast. It was cool seeing the first responder ask him if he remembered the 3 three things he asked him obviously before we got there.
    The old man didnt know what he was talking about.
    They wanted him to stay on the ground but he was pretty insistent on standing. Then we did a standing spinal take down when the toboggan was ready.
    We left once he was loaded. Did a couple more runs at black forest and then went up to the alpine for coverage. There was a dislocated shoulder at the bottom of the ridge rocket, so TJ and I skied to the top of the ridge, got a toboggan and took it all the way down. They gave him antinox and loaded him into the toboggan.
    We took another replacement to the top of the ridge, I got to have a practice of skiing the toboggan to the chair. Feels quite good although it wasnt very steep.
    Not alot else happened really, just tried to stay warm in the alpine hut. Picked their brains about avalanche stuff.
    It was a fucking cold day.
    Went straight from ski patrol to Mo's to play dnd. It was a really good session, we started early so we got through alot. Getting better at pacing my spells and stuff.

    Really fucking cold

    February 5 in Canada ⋅ ☀️ -19 °C

    Went for a ski with Gareth in the morning. It was something like -22. We just ripped around for an hour or so and then went in.
    Had work at 330 but finished at like 8. Daria came around and we watched the first part of century of the self.
    I dont know if she got a lot out of it. Kept falling sleep.

    Carving lesson and XC ski

    February 4 in Canada ⋅ ☀️ -20 °C

    Went for a 10 am lesson and we worked on carving. I started to get more of the hang of it towards the end.
    Came in from the ski and Daria messaged to cross country skiing. It was pretty fun. I'd only used cable bindings, so these tiny little things took a while to get used to but they are so light.
    I went straight from there to work.

    Priorities meditation

    February 3 in Canada ⋅ ☁️ -18 °C

    I went straight from work to yoga in the kids centre. We did a couple of the dedicate sessions.
    Then I went home and looked for the quote from the power of now I wanted to use for meditation.
    Then we did meditation which went well I think. This week we're working on asking ourselves is there something else I should be doing right now. And either fully accepting that you're going to relax and enjoy it or getting up and doing the thing that you feel you should be doing.
    Then we went to the hot tub. I got into a bit of an argument with an old lady in the spa because I felt she was being quite ignorant and racist. I fee pretty bad because I'd just gone from meditation speaking about have compassion for people and then got a but fired straight away.
    Anyway it was a nice night.

    Domesticated

    February 1 in Canada ⋅ ❄️ -5 °C

    Still hasnt snowed and it's pretty icy so I decided to just have a chill day at home.
    Corey wanted to swap shifts so I'm working tonight instead.
    Started meditating and doing yoga again today.
    Feel better already.
    Vacuumed the house, tidied up the house, took out the garbage, did my finances, felt good getting stuff done and not watching Netflix.
    Had a full nights work which was good.

    Vegan banana cake

    January 31 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ -6 °C

    Decided I was going to finally make my vegan banana cake now that I felt like I had all the ingredients.
    Then I realised I didnt have a sieve. I asked will if he wanted to come and bake with me.
    It was fun, he made a lemon cake and my banana cake turned out really well, I was surprised.
    He got dnd ready for tonight and then we went and did yoga down at the kids centre. Came back and had a fun game of dnd. Couple of new girls, Tamara and Mo, they got the hang of it quite quickly I think.
    Daria got back from Florida tonight and came around and said hi.
    I have a funny feeling she might have changed her mind about me. While she was away she was saying she missed me and was looking forward to seeing me and asked if it leave early and travel with her.
    I have slip in that I met Chelsea.
    But also like I think Daria would be a cool person to be with, we would motivate and support each other to be better. And Chelsea is really cool too, very positive and outgoing person, but I can't help but think I'm just "choosing" her because I find her really sexy.
    I also dont want to hurt either one, and feel like daria and I could maintain us even if I was with Chelsea.
    Anyway, something to think about. I'll probably just bring up that I went on a couple dates next time I see Daria.
