Halloween is around the block, but that doesn't mean we can't celebrate in advance. Last Saturday, I went to a Zombie Walk with M., L., A., R., Augustin and Ian. We wore fake skin and gruesome scars, we painted are faces a pasty white and spat fake blood next to by passers. When we arrived at the meeting point, there were zombies all over the place. Scary zombies and not so scary zombies were all united in a walk to invade the city!!!
We had lots of fun incarnating the roles of the living dead. It really put me in the Halloween mood.
Today, I woke up and felt the power of Halloween infiltrate me. It made me feel like drawing a pentagram on the ground on the ground and calling out spirits. Sadly, I knew it wasn't possible, so I disguised myself as a witch. I put on my witchy "blouse" and my necklace that's supposed to help me find love, so I could pretend to cast spells on the hearts of innocent people.
I'm creating nostalgia as we speak and I'm very satisfied. All this new people in my life are pushing me to go outside and do things. Simple things like picnicking on one of Montreal's landmarks: Mount Royal. If you don't know what it is, well let me explain it to you. It's a mountain and it's royal. Actually, that's not true, it's more like a bump, but it's still glorious. So, yesterday, I went up the hill with these fabulous people and we had lots of fun. I really like them. I am actually with them right now.
You might be wondering why I'm on the computer if they're all so wonderful, but don't worry everyone is occupied. Well never mind, now they're all annoying me, so enjoy the pictures.
I've been socializing with new groups of people lately and I find them very interesting to observe. You you can make many discoveries about people and groups of people just by hanging out with them a few times.
The first thing I've realized is that there are so many different kinds of group dynamics. Groups of friends are almost like small communities to a certain level, because the people in them share generally a common point of view on life and have similar values. But if you push the analysis even farther you could say that, on the contrary, groups are all very much the same. We all have our experiences, dramas, problems, secrets, jokes as a gang, which are at the basis of these relationships. Basically, a group of friends is like a human being in itself. It lives through things, has happy moments, sad moments and always has something to think about.
I could go on and on about this fascinating subject but my bed is calling me. So here's a nice fall look for you guys! Raccoons and high waisted "boyfriend" jeans!
I made a new friend the other day. Well not really, but I wish I did. Her name's Nana, but people call her Oh Land. She's an awesome fairy-like Danish singer whom I got to see in concert with A. on Sunday. She used to be a dancer so when she's on stage she moves like no other! Her vocals are amazing and her songs were so amazingly fun to dance too. I even got to meet her and continue my tradition of saying awkward things to people I appreciate. This time I told her I knew how to say "happy birthday" in danish. Anyways, it was a blast! I'm so lucky we got to see two concerts in a week.
