Well, it's the beginning of a new year. What will this new year bring? 6 is my favorite number BTW so, hopefully this year will be filled with lots of goodness cuz, I could really use some.

I kicked the end of 2005 off well. We did our annual South Western Ontario Xmas tour with friends and family and it went over fairly smoothly. I had a bit of a scare this year as both of my grandmothers were not doing so well just before xmas. Now they both seem to be doing much better and I really hope it stays that way.

For New Years, Joelle, myself and a bunch of friends rented a cottage just outside of Goderich. The place was a huge (almost a mansion) 4 bedroom country house on a huge 100 acre lot. We did plenty of Movie watching, game playing, puzzle putting together, music listening, drinking, smoking, swimming, tobboozinin', etc... It was a wicked time. In the end though, I was glad to get back home though cuz we had been away from home for almost 2 weeks.

Coming back to work was a lil rough but, since it was a bit of a shorter work week, I think I can make it through.

I made some resolutions but, I won't list them here. Just keep your finger's x'd for me that I can keep them! I am gonna do my best to live up to my own expectations.

I just found out that my friends Ryan and Kara had a new baby Girl 2 hours ago! Her name is Aiko Mallard and she is 6lb's and a few ounces! I am sure that Ryan (the proud new daddy) will be posting pictures online soon. Congrats to the Mallard Clan!

Since I've already gone through 2 iPods of my own and Apple treated me like crap when they broke, I am really not surprised by this article:

Parallel Universes - More Reality Than Science Fiction

A pretty interesting read:

My friend's Karen and Chad had a baby girl last Saturday. Her name is Sadie Elizabeth Lucia Mitchell (try saying that 10 times fast!) despite my attempts to convince the parents to name her Cha-Chi or Kim (hehe Kim Mitchell, that still makes me laugh). She is a very cute, healthy, baby girl.

I want to have kids someday but, not until I am ready. As it stands I often still have trouble making sure I can get by somedays. If I have kids, I'd like to make sure that I can give them as much as I possibly can (without creating spoiled brats). So far all my friends have set great examples of how to be a good parents cuz, all they're kids are all awesome. It gives me hope that I can do it myself one day when I am ready.

I don't know

Humans assume way too much. Many people (including myself sometimes) often seem to preach ways about the right and wrong ways to live or experience life (or at least aspects of life) but, what does anyone know? I mean, almost everything we know was taught to us from some other person, who was taught by other people, etc... etc... So, unless someone experiences something first hand, how do they really know? I'm not saying there are no original idea's or independant thought out there cuz, obviously there has to be but, I often get the feeling that many people opt for an easy solution by following the opinions of the masses. I guess what I really find interesting is that most humans will use the assumptions as facts and often argue/debate these points to death even though in the end, they really don't "know".

For example: Did US astronauts really landed on the moon? I really don't know, I wasn't there but, all evidence I have seen would seem to show that they did.

People will even kill another human being, animal or even a plant based on "assumptions" passed down to them, and honestly, we really don't "know" if they are right or wrong.

I guess my point is, now that we can understand this, should we really be going around telling people that we "know" stuff or perhaps we whould begin to communicate with each other in a sense that we are aware that in many cases there could be different possibilities? Would this cause more confusion or would it solve more problems?

I don't know.
