I stumbled upon a series of abandoned hospital buildings and decided to poke around a bit. Eventually, I found a building with an unlocked door and walked right in. Among broken glass windows and peeling wallpaper, there were a few isolated posters on the wall still that reminded guests to wash their hands to avoid spreading disease within this children's hospital. I wandered up the stairs, but totally got spooked once I heard a noise, which could have been someone/something upstairs or the wind playing tricks on my mind.

Exploring an abandoned building was kinda cool and I was caught up in the rush. Then afterwards, I remembered that I'm a total chicken when it comes to this kind of stuff. And people asking how Silent Hill-esque the exploration was didn't help. I don't actually know what Silent Hill is about, but I know it's a scary movie. And please don't tell me.

Also, it was a bit hard to find the buildings threatening when "Happiness will find when you stop hiding" was spray-painted along an outside wall. Gotta love that inspirational Canadian graffiti.

Let me begin by saying that I hate the book/movie "The Devil Wears Prada". Yet when I saw this shirt, I was drawn to the colour. Shamefully, because I remember the scene in the movie where the boss from hell was describing how high-end fashion trickles down to consumers. It's not just blue, it's cerulean. Anyway, my main beef with this movie is: If you walk into your job and laugh at the industry and don't know the importance of your boss, you don't deserve the job. A million girls might want your job, but there's at least one who is more deserving. There's no excuse for unprepared underachievers. Not even if you're Anne Hathaway.

The season of crop tops is over. Not just because it's finally chillier, but because it's the month of Thanksgiving and Halloween, which means that excessive eating and food babies have begun to pop up. Now that Thanksgiving is over, I'm looking forward to convincing my mom to buy really good Halloween candy so I can eat it all and blame it on frequent trick or treaters. Yep, it's a great month for food.

Red Rust

Don't get me wrong. I'm all for saving the polar bears and frowning on climate change and such, but if global warming means that I can wear shorts in October, hey, I'll take it. The only thing about wearing shorts during this season is that you're fine in the afternoon, but it's freezing cold in the morning and the night. I tried wearing long pants the other day to stay on the safe side, but I ended up getting mad at myself for unnecessarily wearing pants in the warmth. Canada has two seasons: winter and construction. It's still construction season, so I'm going to take advantage of shorts until winter really nears.

I had a pretty good time being a little touristy in my own city over the weekend. It's pretty great going to high traffic attractions during a weekday because, well they're pretty empty on a workday. I'm quite a fan of prancing around the gift shop and getting excited about the stuffed animals and trying on fuzzy hats for kids. It's a lot less weird when other people aren't around. I imagine that it's pretty funny for people that do see me prancing though. Especially when I'm in army print with a serious look on my face that suddenly disappears when I'm squealing about "cute widdle pengwins" and such.
