I have issues. May 7, 2010

Filed under: Hockey,School,TV — Me! @ 2:25 am

I have some serious issues. Really, I do. I’m following three separate hockey tournaments, and apparently that’s still not enough hockey because during the day, I’m watching the ’72 Summit Series games and interviews from the commemorative DVDs my dad has. And I would still watch more hockey if I could. I think I need help.

I’m not going to bore you all with the details, since I know very few of you follow hockey to any extent, but the people at CBC and TSN really need to stop scheduling important games at the same time. That’s not cool. I don’t like having to switch between games, so if you could keep scheduling one at 7:00 and the other at 9:30 like you do for Vancouver/Chicago and Boston/Philly, that would be awesome. Thanks. :)

Anyway… It’s only the second week of vacation and I’m bored out of my skull. Hockey is only on in the evenings, and the ’72 games will only last me so long. Although, I’m going to visit my high school tomorrow with a friend, which should be fun, and on Saturday I’m going to meet my landlord with my housemates to get our keys and colours approved for painting, so at least I’ll be doing something. (Although Canada is playing Italy Saturday morning which means I’ll have to tape the game instead of watching it live, which I don’t appreciate.  I swear, I’m going to shut up about hockey. I promise.)

Ooh. Since I’m going to school tomorrow to visit some teachers, I’m going to try and talk to my awesome exercise science teacher and see if he can give me any advice on what to do about my major. He studied kinesiology and I think he did his masters in it, too, so hopefully he can help me decide what I want to do. :) Plus, he’s just ridiculously awesome, so I can’t wait to catch up with him!

Speaking of school, however, I’m upset that I have to wait until May 31st to find out how I did in my second semester biology and chemistry courses. Since it’s the end of term, the school is focusing on figuring out which fourth or fifth years are eligible to graduate, so obviously they’re top priority. Us lowly returning students get to be shafted until the grads are dealt with, so the registrar’s office isn’t posting grades again until May 31st. Uncool. I know for a fact that grades were due to the registrar before May 3rd, which was the last day that they were going to post marks until the 31st, so either my bio and chem departments have outdone themselves and didn’t hand in the grades on time, or the registrar decided to be a jerk and keep me on the hook for the only two subjects I’m worried about. Thanks for that. That might be the day that we get notified about which programs we’ve been accepted to as well, so… May 31st will be a stressful day.

Hm. It’s 2:05AM and I have nothing left to talk about. I would share the movie I last saw with you guys, but that happens to be Miracle, but that’s a hockey-related movie and I promised I wouldn’t talk about hockey again. OOH. New Doctor Who on Saturday, though! :D I’m really excited. It’s been… 3 weeks, I think, since I last saw a new episode of DW, since I used to *cough* download them *cough* when they had aired in the UK, which is 2 weeks ahead of Canada. Saturday is finally the air date for episode 4 in Canada, and I’m so excited to finally see it. My favourite villains are returning! WOOT! (I won’t mention what they are for fear of spoiling anyone, but it’s going to be epic. I swear.)

I’m also having math withdrawals. Man, I’m such a nerd. I have to go four whole months without math. How will I survive?! [/drama] And I don’t even know if I’m going to be able to fit math in my schedule next year. It could be an entire year without math. 12 months. 365 days. 525,600 minutes. Without. Math. I’m going to go crazy. Hopefully in third year I’ll have an explosion of math in my timetable and it’ll be epicly awesome and the world will right itself.

H’ok. It’s almost 2:30AM and I’m tired and have to be up early so I can meet my friend at school, so I’m off. I’ll see you guys later. <33

    You can never watch too much hockey. Just saying.
    I can’t wait to watch the new season of Doctor Who! I’ve read mixed reviews about it, so I can’t wait to see if I like it or not. But I want to rewatch all of the 4 seasons (with my boyfriend :) ) before I start the new one… It’s going to take a while.

    Oh and yeah, the wait for grades is so annoying. I only have one left to get and it’s the course that I needed to get a really good mark on the huge project to even hope for a B+. I’m sure I won’t fail, but I’m still nervous because I’m not sure if my final mark will be closer to the Cs or to the As.

    If you miss math so much, why don’t you try to get a job that’ll make you do math this summer? You could work at a math camp or something. My job is at a math/sciences/languages camp (obviously I’m in the languages part of it) and it keeps me “into it” while school is off, so it’s great for that. Unless that’s not what you’re looking for at all..

      I’m glad you agree! :D Wow, that’s going to take a long time! But it’s going to be awesome, for sure. Has he seen DW before?

      That’s really unfortunate. :( And you always have to wait for the grades you don’t feel all that confident about! Karma sucks. I’m sure you did well on your project!

      That is a splendid idea… I was trying to look for something related to science – like pharmacy or whatever – just so I have experienced in my field of study, but I don’t think that’ll happen. I think it might be too late to enroll as a counsellor or whatever at camps, but I might be able to find something. We’ll see! :) Math camp would make my life, though. <3

        He’s seen some random episodes but he’s never watched them in order and not enough to understand the big picture. For example, I think he thinks the different Doctors are completely different people, XD. He knows what Daleks are and stuff like that, but not the general story.
        I should probably start season 5 anyway, because I’m just so bored.

        I hope you find a job you like! ♥

    Haha, you I can’t say I’ve noticed how obsessed with hockey you. I mean, you hardly ever plurk about it =P

    I just sent you a text but I totally forgot about the time difference, =/ clearly we don’t talk enough any more. I wanted to see if my 400 free texts cover international texts (doubt it but you never know =D) but then my phone ran out of battery. =(

    I think we’re up to the same DW episode as you, or maybe we’re in front. I missed the first two episodes, but I loved the fourth episode!!


    • niamara Says:

      Haha. I’m trying to stop plurking about hockey, but it’s so difficult when there are three tournaments on and the refs are as blind as ever… *sigh* I’ll make more of an effort. :)

      That’s ok. I loved the text! Although we don’t talk enough anymore. :( We need to rectify that. I hope those free texts include international ones! That would be sooo cool. :D

      Oh, yay! That’s exciting. Wasn’t the fourth one awesome?! I can’t say anything specific in case Jacinthe reads this ’cause she hasn’t seen season 5 yet, but ohmygod it was so epic. I can’t wait for episode 5! We just got episode 4 on Saturday night since we’re two week behind the UL, which makes me sad because now I’m susceptible to spoilers! Not cool. Where are you guys in DW?
