what is your blog about anyways?

People always ask me “what’s your blog about?” or”well, whats your topic?“. As this happens I say to myself in my own little head “I dunno, whatever I feel like, whatever I like, whatever is me-ist“. I learned something cool from Chrissy at a company called Espresso. It is called Wordle. I made this Wordle of my blog’s first page to get an idea of what my blog might be really about.

This is the realest and truest thing. This shows you what matters most to me. I started writing my blog because I love writing, I love life and I love to remember the things I do that keep me being awesome. This is what my blog is about.

sharing the randomness – 25 casie facts

This has been floating around Facebook since January. I figured since I’ve been tagged by a ton of friends it is about time I shared 25 random facts about me.
The rules go as follows: Once you’ve been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. At the end, choose 25 people to be tagged. You have to tag the person who tagged you. Blah, blah, blah…

Here we go:

  1. I was born in Canada to New Zealand parents and have dual citizenship (Canadian/New Zealand).
  2. I danced ballet, tap and jazz as a kid and completed in competitions across Ontario as well as Showstopper in NY & Myrtle Beach, SC. I was 5 with fake lashes and red lipstick!
  3. I wrote a book and became a published Canadian Author at 14. It was titled Jeans: An Anthology of Poetry and Prose. The Toronto Star wrote and article about me titled “Push Over Keats, Teen Muse Steps Ahead“.
  4. I went to Uni in Australia and lived at Bondi Beach. It was the best year because I learned the most about myself and WHO I really am.
  5. I hate scary movies. I get queezy and I don’t like to put bad images in my head. I’m crazy enough already!
  6. I still have all my Barbies and their vintage outfits. I hope to get them made in my size one day.
  7. I have a Green Belt in Tae Know Do and once knocked out a boy (Note: James Roszell) in grade 8 at school. Mum thought I’d get in trouble but I said “Mum, do you think he’s gonna tell anyone?
  8. I hate the number three. I don’t do anything in threes.
  9. I grew up around vintage cars and vintage clothes. My Dad builds hot rods and mum was a photog for Canadian Street Rod Magazine.
  10. I named my sister Jenie because EVERY doll I had before she was born had that name. I love her.
  11. When I was 16 and had braces, I did a commercial for an electric toothbrush that aired in the US.
  12. My Mum is my hero. She is so inspiring to me and has instilled good values and confidence.
  13. I’m a very loving, positive girl. I tell my friends I love them all the time just so they know ♥
  14. I ride an red vintage bike with all summer and it makes me feel free! I love it!
  15. I am very artsy. I like to draw, paint, write, make jewelry, sew clothes, pastels, chalk, you name it I do it. Borderline Artistic.
  16. I went swimming with wild dolphins on the coast of the Bay of Islands in New Zealand.
  17. My middle name is Diana after Princess Diana. My mum loved her.
  18. I have more clothes than any friend I’ve ever had. It’s an issue but I wouldn’t change it!
  19. I have conversations with myself. I think I’m funny. We’re best friends.
  20. I’ve won a beauty pageant and a bikini contest. Once I was a Sunshine Girl. My hair was long and red and I had huge boobs.
  21. My favorite gift I ever received was a hardcover Thesaurus from my parents in 1996.
  22. I’m addicted to Twitter. I love it. I learn so much and get smarter and smarter each day. Follow me @casiestewart
  23. My Dad was a professional gymnastics/trampoline coach when I was a kid. I’m flexible and can still do the splits.
  24. I have a bad memory. I started my blog to keep more memories and no one read it but ME for at least the first year. Now I write about things that can help make the world a better place, review products people send me and share my thoughts on life. It has really helped my memory and writing is my passion.
  25. I have lots of different talents and believe I can achieve anything. My career goal is to be the Awesomest I can be.

i won the camera, now comes the fun part

It was only January 9, 2009 that I wrote a post titled “hey universe, I need a new camera“. It is amazing what you can do if you set your mind to it. The power of positive thought baby! Special thanks to everyone that voted for me and joined Daily Challenge.

It was a close race and as I wanted, I came in second place, scoring me the jazzy new flippy video camera. “This camera is not only super sleek and sexy but was also named “one of the most significant electronic products of the year” by the New York Times and if that wasn’t enough the makers of The Flip are have committed to give away 1,000,000 Flip Video camcorders to qualified nonprofits by 2012. Talk about Do Gooding!” Thanks Daily Challenge!

“Internet stalking? Who is really stalking who?

Me sitting here on my computer. You would know by looking online that I have been ‘Facebooking’ for about the last hour or so. Chatting, writing notes, tagging friends in photos, and checking my events and sh** like that. At work, when I log on in the morning, scripts run, and documents are recorded with times, dates, locations, ISP’s, with IBM’s all over the place. I recall 1984, the classic by George Orwell. I remember the book vaguely, which I may even recite by memory. I think I read only the ‘Coles Notes’ and still have the hardcover at Mums’ house from the local public library circa 1998.

In a recent discussion, I came to the conclusion that anyone…government, organizations, the Internet, anyone could be stalking me right now. In the world I live in, I am run by the Internet and my computer. I rely on them for knowledge, weather, news, fashion, gossip, history, travel, alerts and everything else that I don’t know yet but Google does, and, I’ll tell you in a minute. I start to think further about the potential of this awareness of what I am actually doing, all the time.

The boys start talking as I come up with an idea. Imagine the government infused our blood with a specific DNA that is able to be seen and or tracked due to its scientific makeup. What a scary thought.

You could see what we are moving particles of matter.”
