Cardboard box derby

For youthstreet this week. We had a ” Together Factor” We had all the teams come together and do a big event.
The day consisted of a “Boxcar Derby” Each team had to construct a car made of cardboard and make there way to different stations around the area we live using clues. And ended the day with a waterfight.
Pretty epic if I do say so myself.

Neurofen is my friend

I woke up at 4 am yesterday and almost cried. For my wisdom teeth are coming in and it felt like the rest of my mouth wanted to leap out of my face. Neurofen was my only friend.

The best calander ever

Last time i was home for a visit ( In Februrary apparantly ), I was over at  Rae and Jers house. I used to live with them a couple years  back and whilst there, I made a random calander for them. I revamped it. It is now epic, and I forgot about it until recently when Jer declared it was ” Maybe check your chickens” today, then scanned and emailed this to me

OH i almost forgot. I had a revelation today via my friend Karly. And I dont care if it has nothing to do with the photo ( this post was a bit random to begin with anyways ) BUT

You may have seen my facebook status saying “Stephanie Anderson is the Mr. Scott of communications..

Some of you may be familiar with the show / movie Star Trek….and even if your not, you are very aware of the phrase ” beam me up scotty ” Anyways to give some background to those ( like me ) Who dont watch the show often and had to have my friend inform me.
Mr scott…or Scotty is the engineer on board….Who is consistently asked to do something ridiculously incomprehensable…and FAST or we will all die.

“I cannot change the laws of physics! I’ve got to have thirty minutes”

Guys……IM THAT ENGINEER!…..Maybe you will only understand this if you work with me. But you know. Making light of a stressful situation and turning it into comedy is my way of coping. and I think its funny. So ha.

Fishing can be fun!

Me and my friend Karly got bored and went “fishing” today with fish tank nets in a grimy old pond but found some unexpected beautiful fish! That were extremely hard to catch. We fueled up with energy drink and 4 hours later caught all these guys!

I love australia. haha

Castle Hill

I’ve been here so long, I think that it’s time to move
The winter’s so cold, summer’s over too soon
Let’s pack our bags and settle down where palm trees grow

– swing life away – rise against –

I remember listening to that song many years ago,  and when it came to those lyrics I was all like. ” YEAH! Im gonna do that!”….. and now I have….weird.

and as hard as it might be to believe for those back home. Sometimes I forget I’ve moved to a postcard. I get used to my surroundings and where I am and take it for granted.

But sometimes…  Every once and a while, I walk around the corner to go to the fish and chips shop. I look up at castle hill like I do everyday, But something clicks and I go ” Oh yeah, I live in Australia”
And realize how blessed I am. cause we dont have mountains in my backyard in Saskatchewan.
