Dear Dad:

I know one day you’ll want to find me. I’ve phoned every David Rathwell possible, one of them had to be you, but all of them said they didnt know me. I know that what you did was wrong. Leaving a 3 year old, drinking more and more, abuse, the list goes on..but I dont even care dad. I want to be like my friends, buying there moms shirts that say “My kid goes to Georgian College” and their dads getting big “Georgian Dad” coffee mugs. Having one parent is awesome, i can only imagine what having 2 parents is like. In my search for you, I found your brother, my uncle. He hasnt spoken to you in a long time and wants to talk to you just as bad as i want to. He’s flying me out to his house in the summer, hes going to take me anywhere i want, and even to the stampede..things my dad should do. I want you to know that even though I dont have a dad,  I am pretty happy. I have friends, a love for children, I still play piano and keyboard, and even though i’m not a figure skater anymore I was one of my high schools best rugby players. I have a boyfriend of a year and a half (almost!) and mom is getting married. He’s an alright kinda guy, but your my dad. Even though I havent seen you in 11 years, it doesnt change my love for you. I’ll be waiting.



Today at 11:30 am,  I ventured into a house with my friend Sarah and my friend Dan who came along because my friend Elle from St.catherines couldnt come. Sarah and Elle are my roomies for school. We went to the house. it’s nice, the basement has 3 bedrooms and a living room and we have a kitchen and 2 bathrooms aswell.

did i mention, i signed the lease agreement?

THATS RIGHTT!!!:)  please forward your mail, effective may 1st to 41 Sylvia st.
woo. im so excited. This is big for me, ive always been a “mommys girl” sort of thing, until my mom started a relationship, its always been the sarah and mom show. This is new for me. and im excited.





the georgian library smells like cat food.

so. its actually been over a year since i cleaned my room. I found the grosest stuff and things i never even knew i owned. I made a pile higher than mount everest of things to donate to the david busby street centre( check it outt! and ive even considered packing..however, as of August 1st i wont be a Barrie resident, and i dont have a damn place to live. So if you live in Orillia or know someone who is renting a 3 bedroom house or apartment, pleaseplease let me know!:)

PS..  Sarah and I are cleaning up Willoughbry Park – This gorgeous park, baseball diamond, field and pond near our house. If you wanna help let me know!

hope your enjoying the happy weather:), back to cleaning i go!

Keep it real!

So, after careful consideration i decided to go from blogspot, to wordpress..  for the most mental reason
wordpress was prettier.

i dont that with alot of stuff though. I simply get bored and find some way to improve the situation or start over. I cant count how many journals ive had since i was a kid and how many blogs ive had since my grade 9 xanga days.

Anyway, I’m Sarah! I’m 19 and in a few months I’ll be starting on my new independance adventure and you get to come. I’ll be moving to Orillia ON to attend Georgian College for 3 years then evntually somewhere like Nippissing University for a degree in education.-It’s going to be crazy! I’ve been together with my superfab boyfriend Jeff for almost a year and a half and i have the best friends anyone could ever ask for!

keep it real!
