Dreams and Disappointments from 22 Year Old Me

Journal Entry Written April 15, 2014 

Yesterday, I had one of the biggest disappointments of my life. I wanted to apply for the perfect marketing job at the Vancouver Canucks but when I pressed submit on my application, it said the job no longer existed even though it said “applications accepted no later than April 14th.” Ya snooze, ya lose, I guess. But boy, was I crushed. I really thought I had a chance at that job. 

To help me realize all my dreams, I started a “Book of Dreams” where I, well, write down all my dreams. It may seem a bit silly, but I think it’s beautiful. All of my dreams – the silly, the secretive, the scary ones – in a book. 

I’d love to read someone else’s book of dreams, even though it’s a very personal thing, almost like a window into their very heart. 

Speaking of dreams, I started looking at jobs in London. My dream is to work in Europe for a bit. “It’s a beautiful dream, Harv.” 

Other than that, I watched two movies today and had the best tea of my life: Cream Earl Grey. 

Oh, and I made some cookies. Yum.

Incidentally, tomorrow is my last ever UBC exam and quite possibly, the last test in my entire life! Which makes today my last day of studying. HALLELUJAH!. It’s not like I’m super stressed out about the exam…I’ve had a long time to study for it as it’s on the last day of exam period and it was my only one, but all the same, I’ll be glad when it’s over and done with. You won’t see this boy complaining….oh, oops, I meant girl, obviously. I got distracted and wrote the Michael Buble lyrics instead. 

Anyway, I’ve been thinking a lot about home lately, as you know. Today I saw the crow that always sits on my neighbour’s roof and I took a picture. I don’t want to forget him. 

Also, Klaryssa and I lay outside in the sun listening to John Mayer and she let me braid her hair. I told her to always remember that moment: our light hearts, our happy smiles, the warmth of the sun on our skin, the pretty music. I hope she does always remember it. I know I will.
