MIA/Pumpkins and Halloween

I’ve been crazy busy with life lately and I haven’t really had a time to just sit down and write/blog. I’m either working, trying to see my boyfriend (which is hard lately), doing things for my mum or figuring out all this Christmas shopping that I need to get a head start on. 

Work has been crazy busy and stupid because of my boss and some parents; I already wrote about that in my previous post. My boyfriend got a second job so now it’s even harder to see each other but were making it work, since I’m home all the time when I’m not working I’ve just been trying to get shit done so my mum isn’t so stressed. 

For some reason this year I’ve been getting excited about Christmas and getting everyone gifts, today I bought my first gift! I’m actually proud of myself because I’ve never started my shopping this early but since Halloween is over I can now start. All the stores are going to have their Christmas stuff out. 

Now for Halloween I didn’t get to go to a party or anything because both my boyfriend and I are broke and we had to work at night. Which is okay because I dressed up as a cat for the pool, but before I went to work I had a big break in between my shifts, so I told my sister to get pumpkins and we’ll carve them. Ever since we stopped going out for candy be just made the pumpkin thing a big deal. We normally cheat and print of something on the internet to carve out but this year we decided to go free hand. We could look at the internet for inspiration but then we had to draw it out on our own. 

My sister’s first one was bad, it was suppose to be a raven but it ended up looking like a chicken. So she just turned it around and started over to get this….



I decided to draw something on my own sort of. I drew it on a napkin first then I carefully drew it out on the pumpkin, it actually took my so long to draw it on cause I really wanted it to turn out nice. I ended up with this….


Now it wasn’t suppose to come out looking cute but it did and I like it that way. I was going to do diamonds at the bottom but I thought that would be too much so I didn’t. 

My sister and I make pumpkin carvings a competition every year, so please tell me which one you like better. 1 being the first pictures and 2 being the second picture! 

Fright Night!

Okay so at my work which is the City of Brampton we have this thing every year cold Fright Night. It happens in October by halloween of course, everyone dresses up, my bosses all the way down to maintenance staff and volunteers. This is a big night for rec centres, at mine we had a hay ride, haunted maze, swimming, arts and craft table, a magician, and face painting! I work in the pool and since we have to save lives we don’t really get to dress up but we can wear ears and face paint. So a girl that I worked with were cats! We were pretty cute, not gonna lie. haha. 


Anyways our night was interesting because we were suppose to have five guards because there was suppose to be a lot of people and there usually is. I ended up having 3 including myself, I told my boss since my actual boss that was suppose to get all the guards there wasn’t there. We just ended up guarding three which went really well surprisingly! We only had one report to fill out and it was just a cut so that’s good. After we cleaned up the pool as fast as we could then went through the maze, ate smores and popcorn. It was actually so much fun and I can’t believe I’ve never worked it before! 

There are more fright night night’s if you just look up on the website or go to your local rec if you live in Brampton and want to go! Check it out!
