    Pow pow

    November 27, 2018 in Canada ⋅ ❄️ 0 °C

    About 15cm of snow over night. I was on one of the first lifts. Great first few runs. Really poor visibility all day though. Its was good practice in the conditions. Practiced what I learnt in the group class, feeling pretty good.
    Ran into Daria a few times and did a few runs with her.
    Wasn't awkward or anything which was good. Still going to apologize though. Got to work at 3:30, could have been done at about 4. Stretxhed it out to after 9:30.Read more

    November 28, 2018 in Canada ⋅ ☁️ -1 °C

    Did another group lesson this morning, I was the only one so got a private lesson which was good. Just kept practicing turning with pressure on my outer ski. Bought some new goggles. Have been spending alot. They are pretty good though, going to take good care of them.
    Hosted games night this time. Will has created his own game which is a combination of dungeons and dragons and some other one he likes. It was pretty good.Read more

    Bon Fire Night

    November 30, 2018 in Canada ⋅ ❄️ -3 °C

    I was on commons today at work, did a pretty good job.
    James and Alex got fired because they were doing lines and drinking in the supervisors office and then slept in there the whole shift.
    They figured out we're not working much in Laundry so have cut our shifts a bit.
    I got the day off tomorrow now which is pretty good because the new lifts open tomorrow.
    Went to dance after work and then to the bon fire to watch the fireworks. Went back to Vics place for her birthday and played games.
    Its feeling pretty normal with Daria which is good.

    Light Up Big White

    December 1, 2018 in Canada ⋅ ☁️ -3 °C

    Had the day off today which worked well because new lifts opened up. Meet up with vic for first lifts. Had some fresh snow so there wad a bit of powder. Had a spa at mine after and then went down to chi kis to have another one and watch the fire works. They didn't start till later than we thought so just went and had a walk around and watch the lights. I went back and watched will and may play dungeons and dragons for a bit and then went home for an early night. Made a red curry and watched some archer. Going to have a sleep in tomorrow morning because I had my shift changed top the night shift and I need a bit of a rest because I've been along so hard.Read more

    Another amazing sunset

    December 4, 2018 in Canada ⋅ ☀️ -9 °C

    Came out to the living room this morning with the sun bursting through. Beautiful clear day. Skid all morning and met up with the germans, Tim, Lorien, and Johannas. Going to get them around for a spa and pingpong arvo.
    Had work with another amazing sunset. Daria messaged me asking to meditate together which I'm feeling relieved about that she still wants to hang out.
    I kind of rushed work then to finish at about 8:30. She didn't end up coming around but is going to come around in the morning.

    Staff Christmas Party

    December 5, 2018 in Canada ⋅ ☁️ -10 °C

    I meditated from 6 till 7 and then Daria came around for eye contact meditation. The idea is to work on not being self conscience. I'd the self is an illusion then the idea of being self conscience is ridiculous. It was a bit weird at the start, but laughing and smiling but we settled down a bit. I really liked it. Helped me think about being self conscience at the staff party tonight and how I dont really need to be at all. No need to impress anyone, I dont need to drink or do drugs to have fun. Made Daria a nice breakfast, I really like just hanging out with her.
    I then rushed down to Nats to go touring for the morning. Such a beautiful day, about minus 14 though so pretty cold. Sweating the whole way up but my hands were freezing until I put on my proper gloves.
    Myla is such a cool dog. Loves the snow. She was getting a bit cold though so we turned around a bit early. That was kind of lucky because it took longer to get down than we thought because there were so many rocks and stuff.
    Nat forgot her poles so I gave her mine on the way down because she didn't feel very confident. It made skiing down pretty hard and I didn't get to enjoy it as much but it was good. Cut up my skis a bunch though because the powder was so soft. Need a more solid base. Beautiful day though.
    I did a few repairs, sewed up the holes on my pants and my glove. Pretty happy with the job.
    I helped Gareth pick up a couch before the Christmas party.
    I ate so much at the Christmas party, it was actually pretty good food. Desserts were amazing.
    Danced pretty much the whole time and gave my drink tickets to the germans. Had alot of fun and didn't drink or do drugs which I'm pretty happy about. The more challenges I get through and the longer I go with out it the easier it is getting. Daria is good inspiration for that.
    Although I do want to do mushrooms at some point soon. Just want to walk around in the forested snow.
    Thinking of asking Daria if she would trip sit for me. Maybe do a sober trip through the nordic trails and get a feeling for the area and then do it again on mushies.
    Had a game of pool at Sam's and then got home about 11:30.
    Going to meet Vic in the morning for a ski.

    Red Beard no more

    December 8, 2018 in Canada ⋅ ☁️ -9 °C

    Quite day in laundry, helped with housekeeping in the morning.
    Daria came around about 6:30 and she cut my beard.
    Feels and looks weird having it gone.
    Feel like I have a small head.
    Made Mexican, she said it's the best meal shes had since shes been here.
    And we just looked t gopro videos and talked most of the night.
    I really like talking with her.
    She said we shouldn't spend time with people that dont make us feel good, or those that actually make us feel bad. We dont need to try and fit in with others. I think shes right, I dont need to try and impress the people at work, just do what ever I like.
    Organising s group meditation for tomorrow night.

    Best morning ski

    December 10, 2018 in Canada ⋅ ☁️ -3 °C

    Got out there nice and early this morning. Gareth said to walk up to the bullet rather than ridge and go down spruce trail or off to the right early for the fresh tracks.
    There were loads of people who had already been down but spruce was completely untouched. It was pretty amazing.
    There were amazing views from up top too, huge cloud cover just below the village so it looked like you were floating above the clouds, able to the sun hit the other mountains on the horizon.
    I got so excited about the snow I forgot to go to the morning lesson I wanted to do in the fresh snow.
    Getting more of a hang of skiing in deeper powder.
    I went out the top of bullet and climbed a little bit with this dude. There were a few other people out there and they were doing this pretty steep section among the trees. I felt a bit unsure about it but had a go any way.
    First turn I went too far across and sort of got my ski caught under something. One of my skis came off and slid down a bit. I had to slide down with one ski to the other carefully so that the sliding snow didn't bury it. Made it down but want to get better at steeps and deep snow.
    Had the best morning, hitting jumps and flying over bumps with a softer landing in the nice snow.
    I went in for lunch with the intention of going back out but ended up just having the arvo off. It had fogged over too by this point.
    Work was pretty busy still for Monday night.

    Shit shirt party

    December 15, 2018 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ -5 °C

    Had work until 4, I did a bit of commons.
    Krislin came over for a sit at 4:30 which was nice.
    Then I watched limitless until about 9 when Daria and I headed over to Corey's for his house party.
    I was really glad she came. Bit moral support.
    It wasn't her thing but she enjoyed the experience, seeing that sort of stuff.
    We went to a random house first which ended up being one of Daria's friends weirdly. Baue and Renee were there, I like them.
    Got to Corey's about 10:30 it was still pretty dead. First thing Daria saw was a guy with big plate racking up and kicking her cards. She was like what's he sniffing? And whys he licking that? So innocent haha.
    We hung around for a bit and then headed off. Shuttle had stopped running so we walked back. I always like talking with Daria.
    She asked if I'd turn back time and not go. I said I got a lot out of that because I ws a by it anxious about going. But couldn't really explain what I'd learnt.
    I think it was that before i hand I thought I would feel pressured to get on it and now i think i could go and not want too. Looking at it through her eyes and see it as alot of people fucked up and not themselves. I still think certain drugs can be used in away to have a positive experience.
    Now that I know I can go and it would be fine, I'd have an ok time. Now i know I'd probably rather be doing something else and I'm not missing out on much.
    Also hows the sunrise this morning from my living room?!?!
