OK so I have finally decided to start a blog, everyone is doing it... I just spent 20 minutes trying to find the perfect name for my blog and finally decided on RevueDeCrown. Sounds wierd, but I decided to make it Stephanie's journal in French. Revue is French for journal and Crown is the French meaning of my name, so there you go. I wanted a cool blog name and that's what I got. It works.
I am spending my day being kind of lazy. Today Stephen, my boyfriend, is leaving to go home to Albertville. I will only be away from him for like 2 days, but I am still kind of sad. I am waiting to see him off today when he gets off of work and then I am going to head over to Kim's to hang with the fam.
This is a bit random, but it is something that has been on my mind since it happened...A few weeks ago, Stephen and I went to a park downtown to walk around and quickly we realized the number of people in the area who were obviously homeless, freezing, and hungry. It was very emotional for me, but that wasn't even the worst part of the situation. A few minutes later, a few buses of people parked near the park and got out carrying boxes. All of the homeless people took off running towards the people. Stephen and I assumed that the boxes contained food for the homeless. It was the saddest thing. Although I was aware that there were tons of homeless people in the Birmingham area, it was just really eye opening for me. I immediately felt sad and unappreciative of the things that I have. It really made me appreciate the little things in life.
That is all for now, but I might "blog" more later today.
