Why be anything less than your full potential?

Aiming to squat 225x 5x 3 today. Oh boy.

ughughughguhgughugh people at the gym

some guys were lifting in the rack next to me and talking about a big upcoming powerlifting meet that i’ll be volunteering at. i politely make conversation, asking them about the meet, whatever. he goes on to say he is going there to “break all of the records” with this really cocky demeanour. 

I then find out he hasn’t even signed up (or even been to one before) for the meet, and i tell him the meet has been full and closed for sign ups for a while. He then says “oh, well, whatever. i was just going so that i could test my limits for cross fit anyway”

i literally grunted an “oh” and promptly turned around and lifted away in silence. some. peoples. children.

At the top of mount lady Macdonald. 4000 feet of climbing on my hands and knees, several hours of highly intensive hiking, and 8000 feet to total elevation. Ho. Ly. Shit.

Banff and lake Louise trip day two with my babe begins :)

“Aw well that's great then. I had to deal with immigration and visas in a ldr context and sometimes I see people trying to sneak in countries and idk I always feel like saying something since overstaying a visa usually kills most of your chances to get perm residency. But you know that so don't mind me!”

oh no we are definitely doing things by the books as much as possible haha. and immigration is a hell of a process, we’ve spent the last year or so doing our research, applying for work visas first, discussing other options of immigration (ie. sponsorship), even talking to lawyers, etc. i’ll go back to dealing with all of that in about a week once i’ve had time to just be exited :D hahah

“Well you talk about him moving as if it were just a thinghe does and isn't involving paperwork.”
-Anonymous

no, it involves tons of paperwork, unfortunately. its a pain in the ass. but at this point, I’m just focusing more on him getting here safely and soundly and i’ll be happy about that. if the time comes, and say, his visa is expired and they won’t renew it/he can’t get permanent residency, then we will deal with that, and maybe stay in the states for a while together. but as of right now, i’ll have my partner with me for the first time in three months, and I’m pretty much just celebrating. 

“Is Cam Canadian?”
-Anonymous

no, why? and why anon? haha

read ‘the fault in our stars’ last night

i was actually mad at john green for making a book so heartbreaking

it was a friday night and i was literally choking on tears for like an hour and I’m STILL sad about it

that book though 8|

"Fear, I’ve had none. What the hell made you wanna love
A man who was gunna die young?

Call it intuition, call it crazy,
I thought by now I’d be pushin up daisies
But I’d gladly stick around if we’re together

So baby when you bow your head at night
Can you tell the lord I changed my mind
With you, I’d like to live
Forever. “

Cam starts his 26 hour drive from the states to move up here tomorrow morning.

Holy shit.
