Ignore my ramblings. September 3, 2010

Filed under: Books,Hockey,Movies,Other,TV — Me! @ 3:20 am

Not having the same sleep schedule as regular people really sucks sometimes. The only thing that keeps me entertained past, like, midnight, are movies, books and TV shows since no one else is really up at this time, and since my parents are home I can’t exactly play piano at 3AM. I welcome the start of school next week, not only for something to do but also to make me sleep at normal hours, so there’s a likely chance that if I’m bored, I can bother someone and make them entertain me. :p

I swear I’m going to stop complaining about this soon. I’m such a hypocrite – I hate when people complain about things all the time, but here I am, always complaining about how I have a whack internal clock. I suck.

Anywhoooo. I’m just going to ramble for a bit because I really have nothing else better to do with my time. Yesterday I was out at BestBuy with my parents looking for a replacement battery for my laptop since it pretty much can’t hold any sort of charge anymore, but unfortunately they said it would take a week to get to the store. They recommended we call HP and have them ship it directly to my house at school, since I’m moving in on Saturday, but apparently they don’t sell the model I need anymore, so they gave me the number of their resaler near school so I could go get it from them… *sigh* I think what I might just do it go to the BestBuy near school and get them to do everything for me, even if that means I have to wait longer for it to arrive. I feel like dealing with a resaler would be kind of sketchy and I trust BestBuy. It is kind of out of my way, but since my parents will be driving me up and taking me grocery shopping on Saturday anyway, they said they could drive out to the BestBuy and order it with me, and then I can pick it up next weekend when it gets in or whatever, since I think I’m going to be laser tagging with some friends next Sunday. My friend and housemate’s boyfriend are coming to visit, so we’re going to go laser tagging (I’ve been told) and the laser tagging place, if I remember correctly, is just down the street from the BestBuy, so I’m sure they won’t mind if we take a detour after we’re done there and picking up my battery. :) Although BestBuy is currently experiencing technical difficulties with their website, so I can’t check their hours of operation.

On a random note, I’m really excited for tomorrow evening. I’m not too bothered with posting this (considering whenever I post plans, they’re always ruined in some way) because it mostly involves a TV schedule and it would take something astronomical to ruin that. Anyway, there’s another episode of JONAS, LA tomorrow and Camp Rock 2 at 8:30 (I think)! Yes, I’m a child. I’m weirdly attached to JONAS and I’m actually really excited for Camp Rock 2. Sue me. Also, we taped an episode of How I Met Your Mother that was on tonight for my mother (haha), because I was watching an episode and she came down and said, “Hey… I thought Neil Patrick Harris was in this?” And of course he is, but that particular episode didn’t have that much of his character (for the 5 minutes that she saw :p) and I noticed that later there was an episode that was pretty exlusively about Barney, so I told her and we taped it and we’re also watching that tomorrow. (Even though I’ve seen it, like, three times already. Don’t give me that look! It’s a great episode. (“Perfect Week,” in case you were wondering. Season 5.)) AND I’ve been told we’re getting pizza for dinner! :D Tomorrow night is going to be so awesome. I’m psyched. And something that made today awesome was my trip to Walmart in which I got some stuff for school – well… by “stuff for school” I mean I got Ringolos and some Gatorade, among other things that, you know, I actually need (like some hooks, soap, toothpaste, etc. :p). Walmart had red Gatorade, which I haven’t found in ages, and (wait for it…)

STRAWBERRY-KIWI GATORADE.

Yeah. I’m drinking it right now. (Well, not right now because RIGHT NOW I’m typing this blog. But you know.) It’s one of the most delicious things I have ever had in my life. I just love strawberry-kiwi juice. My friend Melissa used to have juice boxes of strawberry-kiwi juice at school and I used to have Five Alive, and we’d trade juices at lunch since she hated hers and I was … eh, I was neutral, I suppose, about mine, but LOVED HERS. I named it the Godly Juice because it was so fantastic. I’ve never met anyone else who loves this juice, which is kind of a tragedy on one hand because it’s so underappreciated, but on the other hand, more for me! And I’m always alright with that. :D

I’m also currently dying to discuss The Clockwork Angel with someone. Poor Marzieh is stuck in Iran without Internet at the moment and hasn’t even read the book yet! D: (Not by any fault of her own, of course.) That makes me so sad. I can’t post anything here, either, for fear of spoiling someone… Oooh, and also the snippet of City of Fallen Angels which is found in the newly published paperback of City of Glass. There’s not much in it, since it’s not even a full chapter, but nonetheless. I shall have to await Marzieh’s return. I hope you’re not too bored in Iran, Marzieh! <33 I miss you already. (This is kind of pathetic since of course you can’t read this, not having Internet, which also sucks! *sad pandas*)

I was going to say I’ll just leave it here, but I forgot to mention what I ended up getting at BestBuy! We were on our way to the cash since my mum found a case for her camera, and my dad pointed out this CBC special that was made in honour of the 1972 Summit Series and it was on sale for $7, so… It is now mine! I can’t wait to watch it. According to the front (if I remember correctly) it’s three discs, but it’s no larger than a regular DVD case, so I’m not entirely convinced. I’ll have to see when I open it on the weekend. *excited* That was all I wanted to say about that.

So now I’m really going to shut up because this is getting waaaay too long and I feel like watching How I Met Your Mother. Or maybe The Mentalist. Something.

Good night, blog. If anyone still reads this.

 

THERE WAS HOCKEY ON MY TV! WOOOHOOO! August 12, 2010

Filed under: BEDA,Hockey — Me! @ 12:25 am

Ohnooo. I’m going to have to settle for another late entry today since it’s 11:38 and I can’t write a proper entry in 22 minutes. I’m also talking to my friend Tim so I’m not completely focused on writing my blog.

Anywho, today was a pretty relaxed day. I wasn’t feeling too well and there was practically no food in my house, so I sat around eating Cheerios and crackers for most of the afternoon, somewhat watching TV as well, until my mother got home from work/grocery shopping and brought me some delicious grapes. (Although they taste oddly like apples, and this is weirding me out a little…) I’ve also discovered that TSN2 is airing all of Canada’s Olympic men’s hockey games from the 2010 games. I saw that the Canaday/Norway (our first game of the preliminary round) was on the other night, but I didn’t watch because it was such a one-sided victory and there were other things I was watching. (Poor Norway. :( I obviously like it when we win – who doesn’t like it when their home team wins? – but I always feel sorry for the teams that get blown out. That’s really not fun at all, not for either team. *sigh*) Our second game, though (Canada/Switzerland), aired this afternoon and I saw most of the third period, all of overtime and the shootout of that one, and then game three, the last of our preliminary games (Canada/USA), aired tonight. Unfortunately our next game (the qualifier against Germany in which Shea Weber shot the puck so hard it went through the net – yeah. He’s a god) won’t air until Tuesday. :( THAT’S TOO FAR AWAY. But back to the Canada/USA game: since this is the first time I’ve seen it since it aired back in February and I now know the outcome so I can watch it without worrying insanely, I’ve noticed a whole bunch of things that make me really angry. I bet anyone can guess what I’m about to say… The refs. UGH. There were so many things the Americans did that weren’t called, and there were a few things called against us that should not have been penalties. Come on! I’m not saying if everything was properly called, we would have won – Ryan Miller was too good (my god, he’s such a tank. And Jonas Hiller, the Swiss goalie, was SUCH A TANK, TOO. He’s the main reason we only beat them by a goal) and Brodeur screwed up too much. Come on, man. 4 goals allowed in something like 19 shots? Jeez. No wonder Luongo played the rest of the tournament. (LUUUUU! <3) But seriously. Just call it fairly, yeah? (Though expecting that is ridiculous. It will never happen.)

Moving on! Actually… Not much else happened today. :p The Canada/Swiss game ended around dinner, I think, so after it I ate, read more of Catching Fire, showered, and by the time I got downstairs again it was pretty much time for Canada/USA. After the game against the Swiss, they actually showed a really nice montage of our accomplishments over the entirety of the winter games this year to the bilingual version of I Believe/J’Imagine, and it was so beautiful that I started to tear up a little. Thank you, TSN2. <3 I hope the rest of the games will be shown before I move back to school, since there’s no way I’m getting TSN2 at school. I would have thought for sure they’d be able to show four games in 2.5 weeks, but if they’re waiting a week before showing the qualifying game… I don’t know. After that, there’s still the quarters against Russia, the semis against the Slovaks, and then the final against the Americans. Granted, I have the gold medal game on my external harddrive (yeah, I’m ridiculous, I know), it’s not the same because it’s the NBC broadcast… NBC is American. Our broadcasts were shown on, well, TSN. We had different announcers. I would have liked to see our version the gold medal game again – obviously we were shown the same game, but I dunno, it’s just a different feel with the announcers I’ve known forever. Pierre McGuire does a lot of stuff for the Leafs, so… Whatever. I just really hope I can see the rest of the games before school. That would be a really great present. :) But the TV Guide only goes a week in advance, so I’ll be kept waiting until I can see it on the guide, or the worst case scenario is I just find out on Tuesday when they tell me when the next game is. Considering they showed two games today, they MUST be able to finish four games in a week and a half. WHY they’re waiting a week between games is beyond me, and it’s completely ridiculous. I need my hockey fix! You can’t just dangle games in front of me like that and then take them away so quickly. I wish I could remember when I saw the Canada/Norway game on the guide so it could give me any clues as to how long I’m going to have to wait… If it was a week ago, then maybe waiting a week between games is pretty customary and I won’t get to see them all before school. If it was only a few days ago, then waiting a week before Germany is ridiculously long and probably won’t happen again.

…I need to stop analyzing and just shut up and wait for the games. *sigh* This is going to be really difficult. I’m just going to shut up for now and go read some more of Catching Fire. 12 days until Mockingjay. *breathes*

 

I’m blogging on time! O_o August 8, 2010

Filed under: BEDA,Hockey,Movies,TV — Me! @ 11:31 pm

Ohnoes! I have 54 minutes to completely write a blog before it’s officially August 9th. (Which, by the way, is the day I’m getting my timetable for uni! Woot! I don’t really know why I’m so excited because most of my classes are set since there is only one scheduled lecture time, but… I dunno. It makes it official and that’s exciting? The only things that have more than one time are my two labs in second semester and a tutorial.)

Anywho. Today hasn’t been particularly exciting. I finished game 5 of the Summit Series today and it made me want to tear my face off, and not only because we lost again. (Although from here on out, no more losing, so yay!) Anyway, apart from wanting to tear my face off at blowing a 3-0 lead (and then, by the way, going up 4-1 and still blowing that), the quality of this game was the worst I’ve ever seen. It’s completely understandable, of course, because it’s genuine footage and sound from 1972, and it was a broadcast from Russian to Canada, so obviously the quality is going to be total rubbish, but that didn’t make it any less frustrating. The colours kept flickering, the screen kept going out, they had to keep flashing to this image of a goalie and the Canadian and USSR flags… (You guys know that error message with the funny coloured bars that you get when your program isn’t running? Yeah. It was like a hockey version of that.) And that message kept coming up all the time. It’s going to be like this for the last three games, too, because they were all played in Moscow. Luckily we win all three, though, so maybe that’ll make it less frustrating. (I highly doubt it.)

I also had to clean my room today, which of course wasn’t very fun. I gathered a whole bunch of books, though, to bring with me to school. That was pretty much the only semi-exciting part. Of course I jinxed our plans of getting Chinese food by mentioning it here the other day… But The Gates was still on TV tonight and that didn’t disappoint, so at least one part of the evening went as planned. Maybe next time I’ll learn my lesson and not jinx things. (Again, I doubt it.

I think I’m just going to leave it here tonight. Titanic is on TV and I should really get around to finishing The Alchemyst if I want to have enough time to re-read the first two Hunger Game books. I’ll probably read The Alchemyst during commercials or something. The chapters are usually pretty short so it works out quite well. :)

I’ll see you guys tomorrow!

 

House Woes and 1972 Hockey. August 6, 2010

Filed under: BEDA,Hockey,Other,TV — Me! @ 11:00 pm

Look at me! I’m remembering to blog on time tonight. What an achievement. Now if I can write this blog in under 1 hour and 22 minutes, I can actually POST it tonight. And then we’re good.

Today was pretty uneventful, I suppose. I failed at that “getting up early” thing I mentioned last blog… But I made myself feel better by watching episode 13 of Moonlight, which featured a mostly shirtless Alex O’Loughlin, which was pretty great. ;) I also watched game 4 of the Summit Series and started game 5, but I have a feeling I’m really going to hate watching games 5 – 8, because they took place in Russia in 1972 (well, back then it was the USSR, but they were in Moscow so whatever. Russia it is), and obviously technology kind of sucked back then compared to now, so the broadcasts to Canada were terrible and thus the versions we have on the DVDs are kind of awful as well. They keep cutting out and it makes me angry. It figures that the only games I’ll probably get to watch in good (for 1972) quality are the ones where Canada gets raped. Well, to be fair, we won one game and tied another, but… We got raped in two for sure and then the others were questionable. BUT when we played in Russia, we won 3/4 games to come back and win the series, but since the quality sucks… Argh. That’s totally not fair, but eh. I will live, I suppose.

Tonight I also ventured to my grandma’s with my parents to pick up some plates and bowls and stuff she had for me for my house at school, and I didn’t realize it was like a whole set – 12 bowls (big and small), 12 plates (small, medium and large), 12 forks… Even a few spoons and I have more that I can take from home. The only other regular thing we’d need would be knives – bread and meat knives – and some regular glasses. (On top of the regular stuff we’d need pots and pans, of course, but that’s another matter.) But of course, since my housemates are never available at the same time to talk, we can’t coordinate anything so I just found out today that two of my housemates have already brought up some plates and cutlery for themselves and a bunch of the cupboards are already used. ARGH. This is so frustrating. I just want to sort everything out and know what I have to bring, whether it’s every person for themselves or whether we’re sharing things like plates and whatever.

Anyway, my grandma can be pretty batshit crazy sometimes, but I still love her. <3 Like tonight, she knowingly provoked a wasps’ nest with a giant painting roller and wasps came zooming out everywhere. Needless to say, I went straight for the house. :p Wasps are alarming, ok! Don’t judge me. Then her, my grandpa, my mum and I had the most ridiculously non-sequitor conversation I’ve ever had. I didn’t know what was going on half the time. :p (Then again, half of it was in Greek, which I don’t understand anyway, so that was part of it.) It was interesting, though. My grandparents are pretty awesome. <3 AND WE GOT PITA. WOOT! :D Lots of it, too. I’m pretty happy. And I had pasta for dinner, so hellz yeah! Today is an awesome day for food in my mind.

Hmm. I think that’s pretty much it for today. My mother claims this weekend is cleaning weekend, even though I swear we cleaned last weekend… *sigh* So this weekend won’t be too fun. Although, we’re looking to get Chinese food Sunday night (YES! Brown fried rice and chicken balls with ketchup, here I come. NOM.), which is also when the next episode of The Gates is airing. :D Sounds like a great night to me. Does anyone else watch that show? I kind of love it, it’s pretty interesting. Maybe I’ll also make my special dip for Sunday night, but that involves eating the dip with nachos and that’s going to be so loud during The Gates, so I’m not sure. I’ll think about it, I suppose. Sunday is also the day of new secrets from PostSecret, so YAY. Sunday is going to be a good day, I think.

I guess I’m done for now, so I’ll talk to you guys later! :)

 

Failed again! Damn. August 5, 2010

Filed under: BEDA,Books,Hockey,School,Song of the Day — Me! @ 12:39 am

Unless I all of a sudden packed up and moved to Vancouver or something, I have yet again missed a day of BEDA. I like to think that since I have not yet gone to bed, it can still be August 4th for a while. (Although, no matter how I explain this away, I’ve still totally missed August third, but nothing remarkable happened yesterday. I went to the mall where I found a mattress at The Bay and got a notebook for my linear algebra course this fall. BOO YEAH, LINEAR ALGEBRA. <3 [/crazy])

Today, on the other hand, has been… I was going to say marginally more exciting, but it really wasn’t. I yet again woke up ridiculously late (I really need to start fixing that…) and I did watch Gold Rush 2002, which made me smile a lot, but also wonder at how in the hell Gary Bettman has survived for all these years as the commissioner of the NHL. He’s been the commission for, at the very least, 8 years, and has been screwing us over ever since. Has no one noticed?! God. Someone really needs to do something about him. (AND WHY ISN’T IT OCTOBER YET? UGGGHHHH.)

Anyway. I suppose nothing really exciting happened apart from that. I watched some Friends on TV, ate dinner, had a shower, ate enough Nerds to turn my tongue ridiculously green, and read a book called Love is Hell, which was actually quite good. It’s similar to Prom Nights from Hell, if anyone remembers that ever read it, but the five stories are obviously centred around love, not prom. There’s another book out called Vacations from Hell, but I don’t have it yet. Maureen Johnson wrote a story for it, actually, so I’m looking forward to getting it! Or at least borrowing it from the library. I’m definitely going to try and get a library card for the public library near school this year. Now that I know there’s a branch closer to school than the main branch, it shouldn’t be too difficult to get to. There’s a bus that drops me off only an intersection away from the library, and it’s also near school, so it should only be around a 15 minute walk from the edge of campus? So if I’ve got an hour between classes (or maybe two, depending on if I’m right about how long it’ll take to walk – plus the fact that I have to walk across campus regardless which will take almost 10 minutes itself. Hmm… Although if I had my bike, which I’m probably bringing with me, I could get there and back in an hour, easily) I could nip over and borrow/return something pretty easily, I think. I’m pretty excited because this means I don’t have to stay completely isolated from books throughout the year (apart from any books I bring with me from home), but judging from last year, I’d never have time to read anyway, so I’m not sure if it’ll help. Though knowing I could get books if I have time is reassuring, so hopefully I’ll have some time to read! I have a lot less class time this year since I only have two classes with labs all year, but since I’m in a new field I might have to work harder to stop on top of things, so I suppose we’ll see when September rolls around.

I can’t believe that by the time school starts, I’ll already have read Mockingjay and The Clockwork Princess! They both seem so far away, but they’re really only 19 and 26 days away respectively. (Which, actually, when I put it into numbers like that, is very far. I take it back.) I’m so excited for them, though. I need to re-read The Hunger Games and Catching Fire to make sure I remember all of what happened. Thankfully The Clockwork Princess is the first of a trilogy and therefore requires no re-reads, because I’m not quite sure I have the time for that! I have so many books I need to read, but luckily I’m making a dent in my list. Sort of. I actually finished Blindsight, a sci fi book my friend lent me which I’d had for a year, I finished Love is Hell (which I actually started earlier today – it was that good!), and I’m currently reading The Alchemyst: The Immortal Secrets of Nicholas Flamel by Michael Scott, which is pretty good. That’s also a trilogy, though, if I’m not mistaken. I know for sure there’s at least one more book called The Magician. I’ve also read Devilish and 13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson, but those were borrowed from the library so they weren’t exactly on my “list of books I own that I need to freaking read already.” I’m not sure if there’s been anything else that I’ve read.

Anyway, I’ve for sure begun to ramble so I think I’ll stop here. The song of the day (wow, I haven’t done that in AGES!) is Collide by Howie Day because it’s amazing and I’ve been listening to it tonight. You should check it out. Ciao for now! I will see you tomorrow. (*cough* Later today. *cough*)

 

I’m doing a good deed! June 29, 2010

Filed under: Hockey,Other,School — Me! @ 7:04 pm

Two things I do not appreciate about people making plans is that, sometimes, they either cancel last minute or, if the plans involve me, they don’t tell me about said plans and then get angry when I can’t make it. Regarding the latter, I don’t think I should be required to tell every single person I know every time I make plans on the offchance that they’ve been planning something on my behalf without telling me either. I’m not going to apologize for occasionally having a life. Next time you want me to come to something, tell me when it’s in the planning stages, and I’ll let you know if I’m available. Understood?

Alright, then. Moving on.

In other news, I decided yesterday that instead of getting my hair cut this summer like I normally do, I’m going to keep letting it grow so I can donate it to charity to help make wigs for children who have cancer. I kind of feel a little guilty that I’ve never done this before, actually. I mean, for the longest time I’ve only gotten my hair cut once a year. I don’t get split ends or dead ends, and I can’t decide between keeping long hair or short hair, so I like having both at different times. Plus the longer hair keeps my neck warm in winter and then when summer comes around I cut it short because it’s too warm for long hair, haha. But this year I’m just going to get a trim so I can make sure it’s all exactly one length, and then I’m going to keep growing it out. Right now if I were to cut it to chin-length, I could get around 6.5 or 7 inches, but they require 10 inches for donations so I probably won’t be able to get it cut until Christmas, or maybe later… I was kind of hoping I could get it cut for New Year’s, or, if my hairdresser is busy during the holidays, I can wait until early January and have it done for second semester, but I’m not sure if I’ll have the 10 inches I need by then. Wish me luck! I feel really good about this decision. :) Apparently, to make a wig, the companies need 5 or 6 ponytails! I was shocked. And they need 10 inches because around 2 inches or so are lost in the process of making the wig itself, which is actually molded to the child’s head so it feels natural, and they make it so that the wig can be worn while doing all sorts of every day activities – playing sports, swimming, etc. AHH. I’m so excited for this.

Other than that, my life hasn’t been too exciting lately. Although yesterday I spent a few hours at my friend Tim’s place and we watched the last three episodes of series 5 of Doctor Who! That was pretty exciting, and they were incredible episodes. I can’t say anything more because loads of people haven’t seen the finale yet, and some haven’t seen the Lodger, which is episode 11. And he has the most BEAUTIFUL piano! It’s not anything large like a grand piano, or even a baby grand. It’s no bigger than the one I have, but it’s in this beautiful cherrywood, and the keys are worked in so they’re not stiff when you try to play… I think I’m in love with his piano. <3 *sigh* It’s just so pretty and wonderful and gorgeous. *love* Theeeen… On Friday my family is coming over in the evening to have a minor celebration of my birthday, so that won’t be fun. Plus I’ll have to be up at 7AM that morning because my dad and I have check-ups at the dentist’s office at 8AM. 8 IN THE MORNING. Who makes appointments that early? Who’s practice is OPEN that early?! Good god, that’s like the crack of dawn. I think I should just move out to the west, like Vancouver or something. That’s clearly where my internal clock lies, anyway. Plus they don’t get warm summers and they get ridiculous amounts of snow in the winter. YESPLZ. :)

On Saturday I might be going up to school with my parents to move some things into my new room, although I won’t put any money down on this. They keep saying we’re going up, but we never do. So we’ll see. Then on Sunday I’m going to a buffet near my house with a bunch of friends from high school, so I’m excited for that so I can see everyone again! Well, not everyone, because I’ve actually seen quite a few people, and a decent amount actually go to the same university as I do. But I’m excited to see everyone else for the first time since… Christmas. O_o It’s been a while, to say the least. We try and have buffets every six months or so so we can keep up with each other and just generally have fun like we used to in high school when we’d all see each other every day. :)

Aaaand that’s pretty much it! The World Cup has been on my TV more than I’d like to admit, and I’ve been having really random dreams lately, but those have been pretty entertaining, to say the least. I also don’t have any plans for Canada Day yet, despite that being on Thursday. (Which also happens to be the day that the free agency starts in the NHL. Speaking of hockey, congrats to Taylor Hall, who went first in the entry draft! Alhough unfortunately it was to Edmonton… But what can you expect when you’re drafted first. You go to a really crap team. Anyway. I wish him and the other 98 Canadians who were drafted the best of luck! [/hockey]) How about you guys? Anyone have any plans to celebrate Canada’s 143rd birthday in style?

 

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
