Val's Adventures - Second Installment

"Val's Adventures" are photographic and voyeuristic peeks into my every day life. Basically these are snapshots taken at school at home or anywhere else and I wanted to put them up somewhere. Plus since I'm now Facebook free it's easier for my friends to save pictures they want from me this way.

Locke Street Festival
On the 6th, I met up with Rachael at her house and we headed off to the festival. It was really fun and we bumped into Tala and Hannah while they were doing booth duty. We walked around looking at different things, stopped and watched a street performer (I'm a fire eater hahaha), walked around some more and stopped at the Bagel Shop (I think that's the name) to get something to eat. After that we headed back to her house, where I ended up watching the Shining for the first time. When the movie was done I walked downtown and caught a bus to my house. The whole time I was walking I had "Red Rum!" stuck in my head.

This is my type of bike. My mother's bike looks like this but without the working wheels and brakes. The company name is Raleigh, so if I end up buying a new bike I'll check this company out.

I don't have anywhere in my room to hook up a telephone but I was very tempted to buy these anyway.

If I was allowed to have a pet and wasn't paranoid about a bird flying away somewhere, I think I'd get a bird as a pet.

My self-engagement ring has been eaten by my house so I'm searching for a replacement. I didn't end up buying this one but I took a photo of it because I really like it but didn't have enough cash on me. If I'm lucky I'll be able to find something like this on Etsy.

I have no idea who this man is but he was hilarious. He was standing and posing for change for Breast Cancer. Is anyone else reminded of Fabio?

Tala painting Rachael's face. She painted a peace sign on Rachael's face and a heart on mine.

This is the street performer we watched. I can't remember his name but he had a good sense of humor and was amusing. He had a female volunteer lighting torches that he was putting out with his mouth. He had told her earlier if his clothing happened to catch fire that she was to put it out (she was wearing an oven mitt). His shirt caught fire so she put it out. And then he light his ass on fire and she put that fire out for him too. He jokingly tried to light her butt on fire too and when she backed away he said that was too bad because he's a fire eater. Zing!

My yummy lunch that I had at the bagel shop. They didn't have any cinnamon raisin bagels left. Rachael suggested that we have these cinnamon sugar (can't remember for sure it that's what they're called) bagels instead. They were delicious and sticky and sugary. I had my standard choice of plain cream cheese on my bagel. Also, some old women peered intensely into the window (she was actually right up against it) to see what we were eating. She seemed like quite the character. I kind of wish I took a picture of her.

A picture that I took while I was walking home.

Before I went to the bus stop I made a pit stop at a Tim Horton's to get some grub. The picture on the counter is one of the two vintage pictures that I bought for a buck each.

Oh fun!
Whoah, that unicycle looks scary!

It took four people to hold the unicycle up for the performer to get up there. He also stepped and pushed himself off the guys holding up the unicycle. The girl who was putting out the fire had the job of tossing 4 huge knives up to the performer. Aannnd then the performer juggled four knives on the unicycle with a black bag over his head. He didn't juggle for more than a minute. But still, wow

Valentina= a 18 year old girl with an intense love for life, color and style. My family is my life and I’m having a torrid affair with television and loving every second of it. I like my school and I love my friends and I’m learning to love myself too. I love playing around with clothes but I haven’t found the patience yet to be able to keep up with actual fashion. This is a me blog where I’ll write about my life, my outfits and anything else that comes to mind. "It is absurd to divide people into good & bad. People are either charming or tedious." — Oscar Wilde)
The vast majority of the photos I use on this blog are not mine. Whenever possible I will credit photos but in some insistences this isn't possible. For example I have a collection of un-credited photos saved on my computer. So unless otherwise noted the photos on this blog are not mine. If you see an un-credited photo and it's yours (or you know who it belongs to) let me know so I can either take it down or give you credit.
