Niklas Lidstrom is a God. June 22, 2009

Filed under: Hockey,Movies,School — Me! @ 8:31 am

I am officially a high school graduate.

Well, not technically, yet, since commencement is on Thursday, but I’ve written my final high school exam. Lindsay is freeeeee. To be honest, I’m don’t feel any different. I went to school on Friday to see my chem exam mark (and I’m going back tomorrow to hopefully see my exercise science exam mark) and it felt normal being there. Maybe I’ll feel different after commencement, but probably not. It’s still the same school I’ve been to for four years, and no matter how much crap I put up with in those walls, whether from the school, friends, etc., it was pretty worth it. I’ll miss a lot of people from that school, though I know I’ll make new friends at university. :)

Speaking of which, scheduling classes is a nightmare. Actually, not exactly a nightmare, because I’m an organization/planning freak and I love to do stuff like this, it’s more of a frustration trying to decide which courses I want. Or which electives, more like. I have eight required courses, and then another one that’s strongly recommended, but that’s completely throwing off my schedule because if I take that, I have to take my elective second semester, and it’s impossible to find an elective in second semester that doesn’t have a prereq. Although, I could always take another math, but that would leave me with three maths, two physics, two bios, two chems and a psych, and I’d die. If I don’t take the recommended course (physics, too. Ew), then I have two electives, and I have to debate between two kinesiology courses (omgsointeresting) and two Latin courses. I know Latin will be interesting because I’ve taken three years of Latin in high school, and I’m considering a minor (maybe) in Latin (or math…?) so it would be beneficial to take the course, even if I don’t end up minoring in it because it’ll be a good relief from my science/math-heavy courseload. Although, kinesiology is very interesting and relates to my field of study… Decisions, decisions. I have two weeks to decide, anyway.

On a completely unrelated subject, I went to the mall today and bought some awesome tops from Jacob. :) <3 I might post some pictures of them at a later date, since I’m also looking to go to Garage/Ricki’s and possibly get one thing from each place. We’ll see, I suppose.

On a topic completely unrelated to both things I was just talking about, I was linked to an article the other day that made me respect hockey players so much more than I already did, if that’s even possible. It was about Niklas Lidstrom, and how he was speared in the groin one game (accidentally), and had serious complications and needed an emergency surgery, yet he still came back – in immense pain – to play against the Pittsburgh Penguins. No other sports’ athletes would have come back in that kind of pain. They would have been at home, resting. But Lidstrom is a hockey player. <3 And therefore ridiculously awesome.

I must be off now, unfortunately. My parents and I are watching The Bourne Supremacy, the second of the Bourne movies. The Bourne Identity (movie number one) was so interesting! I’m sure Supremacy will live up to the expectations. I also saw The Perfect Man today, and that was a really cute movie. :) I was almost outraged that the movie would have an ending not as I expected, but it all turned out okay.

Anyway, I really must go now. Jason Bourne is waiting! Haha. Talk to you guys later. <3 Actually, the next time I blog, I’ll probably have my high school diploma. Ahh!


Lindsay’s Criminal Minds Obsession… June 12, 2009

Filed under: Hockey,School,TV — Me! @ 6:57 pm

I don’t really have anything interesting to blog about, but I haven’t blogged in the longest time and I feel like I should be blogging more. I really fail at this now that I don’t have to do it every day.

I woke up this morning to a ridiculous sound – I still don’t even know what it was, but there were strange people in my backyard coating the patterned concrete or whatever it was they were doing. Whatever they were using sounded like a ridiculous and obnoxious lawnmower. No worries, though, because it was around the time for me to get up, anyway. I had some breakfast, read some CoG, and then read the comics and some articles about the upcoming Game 7 between Pittsburgh and Detroit tonight at the Joe Louis Arena. (GO PENS.) Then I got on my computer and had a chat with a friend about part one of the exam that we wrote yesterday. Yes, I’m very much like Hermione in the fact that I love to go over exams after I’ve written them. :p I made myself some lunch eventually, talked with Brit (whom I’ve missed! <3) and then got dressed and went to study math for my exam on Monday – though unfortunately I couldn’t go outside because of what they did to the backyard, and tomorrow I’m going to study with a friend, so we’ll be in his house or at the library, and by the time I get back it’ll be dinner. Maybe I’ll have some time on Sunday to go out or something, but apparently it’s supposed to drop to 11C on Sunday. The weather here fails at being constant.

While I was on the computer, I indulged in watching multitudes of videos about Criminal Minds (mostly Spencer Reid, who is awesome <3) and some videos about Moonlight and Alex O’Loughlin/Sophia Myles. I actually spent a ridiculous amount of time after math and before dinner watching all of the awesome Reid clips on this YouTube account. My all-time favourite clip (though I admittedly haven’t seen all of the episodes) is this clip, where Reid is in the bar with Morgan and successfully chats up the gorgeous bartender with his epic magic skills. <3 He’s so awesome. Although this clip is one of my favourite non-Reid clips, where JJ, Garcia and Emily are at a bar and meet a “real FBI agent.” Needless to say, they PWN him. It’s so funny, you should watch it. :)

I really should be studying, but I’ve done the entire review sheet for math, and I’m going to be studying most of tomorrow, so I’ll probably review some exercise science tonight while watching the game. Ahh. In 134 hours and 40 minutes I will officially be done the last exam I have to write in my high school career. That’s kind of a scary thought. But even more intimidating is that I have to wake a week after that for commencement, which is when I’ll find out whether or not I won any awards. I’m definitely not the waiting type, so that’s going to be difficult, especially because I’m not going to have anything to do, seeing how I won’t have classes, obviously. It’s going to be tortuous, and my library doesn’t even have the seasons of Criminal Minds for me to catch up on, since I haven’t seen season one or two (or part of three)… *sigh* It’ll be interesting. And when I say ‘interesting’ I really mean ‘ridiculously boring’. Oh, well. I’ll survive somehow.

I will leave you all with parting words that just popped up on my TV from House: “So, in conclusion, shut up!” Oh, House. <3 You are a jerk, but I love you and your ridiculous piano-playing talent.

I’ll talk to you guys later. :)
