i sure hope all the concrete and weeds i've watered have grown
Well... Tonight I paid my non refundable $100 deposit for the U of C, which makes me especially hopefuly that it wasn't a false negative that I got on the pregnancy test that I took on saturday night... So yeah I took my first pregnancy test, there have been enough symptoms for me to be suspicious, but they can mostly be explained by other things, but I screwed up my birth control pills, which may or may not explain where my period went. I don't know... I bought a pack of two so I guess if all else fails, I take another one in a month and not worry tooo much right now. Darren went down to the gym while I took to the test (I think he was more stressed than he ever could have let on) So yeah... Yesterday we got up and went hiking all day in Banff, it ended up being like a 14km hike, it took around 5 hours, and damn was I tired, my feet hurt before we even left the parking lot, and about 20 minutes in I was nearly in tears, by the time we got back to the truck, my feet were pretty much numb and my sock and boot were drenched in blood. Pretty sick, it hurts like fuck now. After our hike we went into town and went to the candy stores (we spend waay too much on candy but justified it because we never go out) and then went to the hotsprings, which were temporarily closed due to a "code b" (somebody barfed) so we went and got some dinner at mcdonalds and back to the hot springs. it was soooo amazing, just to lay in the hot water underneath the black sky, watching the dark clouds move past the mountains. It was just so relaxinb, i was pretty disappointed to have to get out and come back and face the city. the hike, (despite my feet hurting) was pretty nice, there were so many waterfalls just wound into the mountains, and the top of the hike, is this place called the ink pots which are like these weird bluey green ponds, apparently they were much more vibrant in the sun, but it was sorta cloudy. Each one is supposed to be a slightly different color, I hate to admit, but I was sort of disappointed, I hiked 7km to see them, I was expecting something a bit more dramatic i guess. And the weird thing is, we were like way up in the mountains, but they were in like a little clearing, it was actually quite prairie like, way the hell up there. Oh well, as I tell myself about everything I've been through/done/accomplished in the past few monthes... it was an experience.
