25th-Apr-2008 07:40 pm - Bored.
So, I'm bored...and I was on facebook (stupid facebook) and Sara's link to live journal reminded me of the good ol' days.

I'm just sitting here, listening to music, bored.  I just finished making 2 batches of cookies (oatmeal raisin and oatmeal chocolate chip) and am now waiting of my loaf of whole wheat bread I'm attempting to make.  I made bagels the other day, but they didn't turn out great.  So we'll see how this goes. *fingers crossed*

Everyone's in the middle of exams right now, leaving me all on my lonesome, bored.  All I hear in the background, when the music briefly stops playing in between songs, is my roommate...snoring.  Just waiting for the roomies to finish their naps and then we'll watch Bones!  I <3 Bones.  It's a toss up between bones and one tree hill, but I think in the end...one tree hill kicks butt, because there are more cute boys in that one.  Silly logic, but I also like the story line...as the teen drama it's just so appealing, and hits closer to home, as opposed to a show about forensic anthropology (still love Bones!).  I'd totally do the forensic anthropology bit if dead people didn't freak me out so much. 

I've also been watching the first season of ER again.  That show is pure magic.  Pure. Magic.  I forgot how great it was.  Also, I was 7 when that show started, so I didn't really get most of the content anyways. 

I decided I needed a hobby because once the summer started, everyone would be involved in something or another.  So I chose...*drum roll* RUGBY!  Maybe you'll have the same reaction as everyone else, "Oh.  Rugby.  That again."  Well yes, I couldn't think of anything else to do, so I chose Rugby again.  And yes, I hope my nose can handle it.  I'm drinking lots of milk.  I think that will work against me breaking anything else...right?  I hope so.  Getting my nose reset was the most painful thing in my life.

At least Rugby provides some sort of entertainment in my life...work == boring.  Work != fun.  Work == lame.  O well, almost done.  Just a little longer.  Plus now I have a new vacation to look forward to!  Winnipeg at the end of june/first week of july!  I'll bring the boy home maybe...show him that Winnipeg's not a frozen shit hole...as the song goes.  So book a day off Ladies, I've claimed you (if you are around)!  Plus, I must see Laura's new house...exciting! I can't wait! Move in on Sunday, keys today! 

Btw: definitely need to change the layout of my page...yeah...probably won't get around to it...I'm just not that computer savvy. 
16th-Apr-2006 11:53 pm - Yay Easter! **Traffic Cones**
Ok...so exams start tuesday.  I have no study buddies...because everyone else's schedules are completely off mine....grrrr...

So, funny names on msn I've seen today...today just seems like the day for funny ones:

"I haven't been this disappointed since I lost my virginity!"
"V and D - Two letters that can burn!"
"This weekend we celebrate the birth of the easter bunny"
"We drank so much Jesus came back to life!"
"The forecast calls for destruction tonight, death tomorrow and armageddon by the weekend"

...ok that's it...but I was amused.

So funny story...it's really better if told by Kat and I in person, but this will have to suffice.

So Kat was coming over for Easter dinner tonight, to get some swiss chalet and watch some undergrads.  So she's driving here and phones me as per usual a couple minutes before she gets here to tell me to come get her at the bottom of the building.  So I go down to the parking garage and phone her because she's not there yet.  Apparently the conceirge told her that the lot was full and so she was heading back to skule to park.  She started heading back to my place and I decided to put a traffic cone in the parking spot to ensure no one would take it.  Just as she's about to come in, this beamer is in front of her and starts to go for the spot.  So I run over to the spot and nicely say to the wife, who is trying to remove the traffic cone that I was saving that spot. 

Standing in the middle of the parking spot, refusing to move, her husband gets out of the car and starts yelling at me.  I told him that I was saving the spot for my friend, who he asks where she is...and I point to Kat in her car, who is sitting right behind him waving at him.  He just starts yelling that you can't save spots and that he was there first.  I try to explain to him that the conceirge turned Kat away five minutes earlier and if he didn't then she'd already be parked in the spot, and this wouldn't be an issue.  At this point in time, cars were coming in behind the two cars getting really angry and honking.  So the guy decides to move a bit so that the cars can get around him. 

He gets back into his car and moves it back a little bit so Kat still can't get into the spot, and moves forward towards the parking spot, stoping about an inch from me.  I think he was trying to scare me, but I was like "buddy, if you want to hit me, then I'll just sue your ass, so go right ahead"...ok I didn't actually say that, but that's what I was thinking.  So he gets out of the car and keeps yelling, claiming that he was only going to be five minutes to drop his daughter off.  So I ask him why he can't just park in a reserved parking spot for those five minutes, since Kat was going to be at my place for a couple hours at least.  BUT he keeps arguing saying that "that is simply not allowed".  I tell the man that "I have all night, I have nothing to do" so good luck to him.

The man grabs the kid and keys and goes upstairs leaving the car parked diagonally not in the parking spot but in front of...blocking the driveway...and an inch from me, leaving his wife.  His wife starts yelling at me, as I try to talk to her rationally.  Kat gets out of her car and starts talking to the woman, trying to explain the situation about her being denied five minutes prior.  The wife, having the same points of argument as her husband tries to say that parking in a "reserved" spot for five minutes is not allowed.  Kat asks the woman how she was let into the parking garage and not denied by the conceirge.  She tells Kat that the conceirge told them that they were told it was full but they still asked to check.  So they came in.  Knowing she was losing, the woman gets back into the car and slams the door.

So Kat and I begin talking and I give her a hug and she gets the cake to show me that she brought me some of, all while the woman was watching and sitting in her car.  When her husband gets back he begins yelling at Kat and I again.  Still having not very valid points.  Kat asks the man nicely if she can tell him her side of the story, and he agrees.  BUT as soon as she begins talking then he interjects and starts yelling again.  He then goes to his car, grabs a camera and says he wants a picture...so Kat and I gladly pose for him...Kat's arm around me and the other one holding the cake.  Then he proceeded to threaten us by saying that "this will come back to us".  He then claims that the conceirge told him that there was one spot left in the garage and tried to argue that it was his because the conceirge said it was so...when just a few minutes before his wife told us otherwise.  So then we called his bluff and he just got more angry : )

**Note: Still standing in the middle of the parking spot**

He gets back into his car and keeps yelling at us, which at this point Kat say "Excuse me sir, we can't hear you.  Your door is closed" .   I look at Kat and we both burst out laughing.  It was hilarious!!!  But he keeps yelling...and we kept laughing.  So Kat gets back in her car to back up so that he can depart, but before he leaves he unrolls the window on his wife's side and says "have a good night", probably because his wife told him to be nice.  So I simply reply with "Goodnight Sir". 

Thinking that he was finally going to leave, he starts yelling at me through the window.  He claims he's going to come back tomorrow, and I told him "I don't care, I won't be here...I won't even be living here in this building in less that a month...and then I won't be your problem anymore."  He just keeps yelling and I choose to ignore him by replying with "Goodbye Sir",  "Have a good night" , "So long".  He then stops yelling long enough to say that he is going to stay in front of the parking spot in protest because of the way I was acting.   So he back up, but I guess his wife convinces him to leave because then he drives away. 

And Kat got the parking spot!! Overall we were amused by the situation...so it was all good : )

**If I've forgotten anything or anything is wrong please correct me Kat! hehe

Night All!  Goodluck with Exams!
14th-Dec-2005 11:03 pm - WiZoOt!
Engineering Exams Done AND Done! Weeee!!!!!!! Now I only have Anthro left next monday. So apparently...I've suppose to have been reading the textbook all along...during the term...not just starting now...who would have thunk!?! hehe. So that just means I have to read/memorize/know 60 pages of the text per day. Do-able I think. Just means I won't get to do various things, like the b-day celebration on Friday, possibly bnad sk8ting on saturday...yeah. Meh. Hopefully i'll be around to be able to do them next year...wha what?! hehe.

I think that half of my exams went alright...I was acutally only failing one course going into exams. That's superb! And I had a 47%, whoot whoot! No needing 70% to get 50% in the course eh Mavi! sweet deal...remember that night we were sitting in second cup and you started freaking me out about that...yeah...good times. Thanks. It actually made me work harder!

So I messed up 231 hardcore..I'm so made. I was trying to figure out the question and they gave the "camera constant" and I picked out the right equation...and then was working it out on zee paper...and then circles half the equation and wrote "constant" but it didn't click that THAT was the camera constant. Oi Vey! That's all I have to say, i'm a dumb fuck. O well! Hope that goes ok, went into that course with like an 80, so not bad. I just need over a 60 average, *crosses fingers*, *rubs the rabbit foot*, *smacks self in head*, etc, etc, etc. Yeah...so we'll see.

See look at my mood! I'm "artistic" because I'm studying for my artsie exam...isn't that cleaver!! I don't think I spelt that right...which makes it even more funny! I was going to say "funnier", yeah...I'm not meant to be an artsie. O well!

So last night I went to Steins after my last engineering exam. Proceeded to drink a pitcher...yes, not a pint...pitcher. hehe. And then went out for Japenese Food with Nick. Good times. I'm just so happy that engineering exams are done...damn I wish they were all done. If only...it'd be all too perfect to have 27 days of holidays...yeah I know. They had to mess that up for me...damn artsies. Ok, I really DON'T hate the artsies...I'm actually kind of happy because I wouldn't have enough time to study otherwise. Then i'd just be in big doo doo.

Cruise in T-11:00:00 weeeee!!!! I'm soooo excited!! To the rentals on the 20th too...man this is going to rock so much! My mommy asked me what kind of cookies I wanted when I got there...so I sad peanut butter..mmm..and then she asked me what other ones I wanted!!!! Because apparently I have to prep my stomach for the cruise. So I asked for chocolate chip cookies, but my mommy read my mind and said she'd make me imperial cookies..mmm...

Can't Wait!!!

P.S. I don't think that I ever thanked Sarah for this wicked icon!! Weee!!! iCheetah!

Studying. The one thing i'm suppose to be doing but I can't seem to get around to it. It's saturday. I have an exam on monday and tuesday. I'm thinking this is probably not a good thing that i'm just sitting around doing nothing. I'm going to New College tonight to erik's to do my study sheet, that'll be productive at least. And I guess we'll go over some stuff for studying. I haven't even started studying for my exam on monday yet. It's structures...I don't know...I like that course. There's just not a lot to it, maybe that's why I like it. It's interesting though, so that's always a plus.

I made dinner tonight for myself, as Alaina and Todd are off in Missisauga or something, I can't spell, yes, if anyone wished to enlighten me on the spelling...go for it. So I made pasta, it being the fastest easiest thing to make. I didn't feel like tomatoes, so it's an olive oil based sauce with sun-dried tomatoes, olives, onions, ham, a bunch of spices and bowtie pasta! Weee...o and parmasean cheese. Yeah...we really don't have real food in our house...I had to make do with what we had. I thought I was being creative! It tasted good so that's all that matters!

Went to the library yestarday in attempts to study...didn't work, I was there for like 9 hours...and I still didn't accomplish one thing..I felt kind of bad after. And today I woke up at like 12, which was a write off...So I guess I really have to cram now. To New!!!

ok So I really don't want to study...

Cut to loooonnnnng survey stole from SaraCollapse )

First week of exams, done and done. That just means three more exams left...monday, tuesday and next monday. I think that i've spent more time in the library than at home lately, it's so sad. I was at Gerstein for 14 hours yestarday, and Robarts for 9 hours on the weekend...etc...etc...but I do enjoy getting those study rooms at Gerstein so that we can make more noise than usual. : D Good times. Oooo having library buddies rock!! Weee Mavi, Jeremy, and Kat...once Nick, but he doesn't really count, he's not part of the clique. hehe. Yes, i'm going to call it a clique. The Cool Kids Clique...mhmm : )

Since writing Calc III today i've done nothing productive. I watched an episode of The Family Guy with Alex and Henry after, and waited for Kat to get back from the Docy. And then we went back to my place, just wasted time, I did laundry and then I went to the last Anthro lecture of the term!!! Weeee!!! I don't heart anthro when it's 6-8 on a Thursday night. I just have a tendency to forget that it's there and just don't go. O well, no more this term!

So I'm contemplating bnad sk8ting on the Saturday after engineering exams are done, although I do have my Anthro exam on the monday. Ahh well, it's 7-9 pm, so I might go...my exam that is...and to bnad sk8ting. hehe we'll see. I got my hands on past Anthro exams which I think is positively a good thing because there's only so many hundreds of questions they can ask...right? hehe. So that should be a good study tool. Thankee Erik, life saver!

I really don't want to work, but maybe I should make my Thermodynamics cheat sheet, otherwise it probably just won't get done. haha. Weee!!! I'm so happy because I usually forget the bloody equations...one equation my ass...I refuse to believe that!

So in procrastination I played the piano for awhile, I might go back to that soon...damn piano!

Laundry Time!!! Weeee Clean Clothes!! Haven't had those for awhile, i'm going to smell good! Yes!!
4th-Dec-2005 11:48 pm - GAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ok....so....exams start in less than a day, and I'm freaking out...well not completely yet. I don't think i'll start to really panic until I'm sitting in front of the exam and am completely unaware of what i'm being asked to do. O well. I stayed at Robarts for 9 hours today in hopes of learning something, although I feel none the wiser than when I went in. That happened yestarday too, I don't know what the dealio is, but I really suck. I really honestly do feel like the dude in my picture and slamming my head against my desk.

People make me mad. I dislike disliking people, but sometimes I just really have too. Yes, may sound contrary to my bitter normal self, but it's true. I hate when people take your ideas and pawn them off as their own, and then I hate when other people credit them for those ideas even though they know they're yours. And I hate when people won't believe you that they're really your idea first...especially when that someone claims to be one of your best friends. This is craptacular. Bitches!!! Bah!!!! Gah!!!! Boooo!!!! GAHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Okiee, feeling slightly better. So on Friday went to school to do the guardy thing, and then stupid people caused stupid events to not happen. Bitches!! This really isn't my week. This really hasn't been our year. And by our, I'm referring to Kelso and I. Man, life = crap, why?!!!!!! And with exams quickly approaching, almost looming right above, it's not going to get any better...lovely.


(ok, I think i'm done with the '!' now)

Bah!!!! I don't want to do exams!! Stupid Gerstein not being open late...wtf mate? Stupid artsies not starting until later...booo!!!!

That is all for right now.
28th-Nov-2005 11:51 pm - Memory Exercise
O, ok fun exercise...

I was trying to think of this but was forgetting rapidly, so I want you to tell me when the first time I ever met you was...in what context...blah blah blah. I just want to remember.

Was thinking, forgot some stuff. Two nights ago, the night before convocation, in honour of our graduating class, we painted the SAc (SUX) Dome. The student adminastrative council, for all of U of T. So it was painted all black with a little hat on top with a tassle, it was so cute. So I was up until 4 in the morning doing that, and then Henry came back with me to my rez and he slept over. But we had to be back at school for 9, so 7:45 wake up call to get all of us through the shower...and so not much sleep, but it was fun. Then the bnad event, which was previously discussed.

So last night, I went to Stein's with Todd's family and just was going around talking to a bunch of people. It was fun. And then came back here and proceeded to watch the "SMA Grad 2004" video that was lying out from the rest of them for some odd reason (a sign I guess). And that was awesomely fun. *tear*

Last day of class today, that's so horrible! Well I mean I'm happy that school is almost over (I just have 2 hours left later on today), but that means that exams are coming and I don't know. I really dislike ece and I know mse is going to be hard...and to top it all off...Calc II is going to be a bitch and a half. I have a lab due on monday re: materials selections, 7 online calc assignments due not this monday, but the following monday and those take over an hour for one. I'm going to die. Ah well, just two more weeks...two more weeks of hell so that I can endure 3(+???) more years in Skule, which I love. So Hmmm....Good tradeoff I guess. I don't want to study. Booo!!! But I must.
