BWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! I'M NOT DEAD, I LIVE I LIVE!

Oh boy, this past month was so freaking packed with stuff I barely had time to do anything!

Most of it was spent studying for finals and getting ready for all my practical tests. But it's all done now!

My convocation was last Friday :D My mom and her boyfriend came down and we were able to scrounge some extra tickets from my aunt and uncle (my cousin graded on the same day, but she didn't go so they gave us their tickets) so everyone could come~

Ceremony itself was kinda boring and pretty long, but it was really good. I didn't fall over or anything, which was my big fear of the day :P

Read more...Collapse )

Everyone was pretty scattered after the ceremony so I didn't get the chance to get a whole class shot, but that's fine. I've got a pretty good one of most of us from the party we had the night before and I've got various ones from the last week or so of class.

So now I'm just chillaxing until I head up to Merrit next month for the music festival, then I have to start looking around for an actual job in a restaurant or bakery or whatever.

Finally got to see STAR TREK last night. And it was sweet! I got a kick out of all the little references to the old series that they threw in, like when Capt. Pike whistled at the beginning of the movie and it was the noise the intercom made on the show XD I know, I'm a dork!

Gotta take my car in next week for a tune up and get some new back tires before I go to Merrit next month. Yay for $400 worth of car stuff! I'm looking forward to getting that credit card bill~

...

Well, not really anything else to report... More next time I guess!

So tired... Only got like 3 hours of sleep last night... Not sure why, I went to bed tired and ready for sleep, but I didn't pass out until around midnight and I woke up at 3AM only to lie there, fully awake until my alarm went off at five...

Got 100% on my test today though, so that makes me feel better about being sleep deprived... :D

Went and saw X-MEN ORIGINS on opening night. I liked it a lot! I found the action scene really intense, and I loved to cast :P Hugh Jackman + Ryan Reynolds + Taylor Kitsch = <3 AND Dominic Monaghan! XD

Didn't get to go see STAR TREK yet though, which makes me a little sad, since I'm secretly a Trekkie, but I'm hoping to go soon...

School's been going really well lately. I can't believe I'm done in a month! I'm gonna miss it, but it's exciting at the same time too. I'm hoping to start applying at some restaurants pretty soon and see where I end up.

And, though it isn't totally set in stone yet, I was asked to go up to and cater at a music festival coming up in July! My teacher and a friend of his go up every year and they asked a few of us from class to go up with them this year! We're still waiting to see exactly how many of us they're going to need, but just having been asked if I was interest was a huge thing for me cause it means I'm actually good at this! It's a really big festival too! Mostly country music stars, but still, we're talking like really really famous ones! Like Kenny Chesney, Emerson Drive, Doc Walker (not sure exactly who these people are, but I'm told that they're kind of a big deal)

I felt something more springy was in order (even though it's all rainy and blah here right now...) Now for a new user-info...

After nearly 21 years of not having them done, I finally got my ears pierced last Tuesday! The other girls in my class were all going to get piercings and they convinced me to get my ears done. It didn't hurt like I was kinda scared it would. And I like having them pierced! I have to keep my little studdies in for another 5 weeks, then I can switch them out for different studs of non-dangley types. No big dangley things for about 6 months, but I've already got my eyes on a bunch of nifty little styles :D

I need to finish up some final touches on my last big project, then I'm due for some exercise (I've been a little lazy and haven't done any yet today...)

So last weekend was totally awesome!

Mom and Mike came for my cousin's wedding thing and they brought me my best friend! :D Tiegan came with them and surprised me for the weekend. Best easter gift EVER! So he got to see the insanity that is Mom's side of the family. It was hilarious watching him try to remember who was who and how they were all related.

I got to meet Mike's girlfriend too! She's so adorable :3 Really sweet girl and very down to earth and sincere, which makes me like her even more~ And she's tiny, which make her and my brother a funny couple, him being so tall and what not, lol

The reception thing was really fun. There wasn't a dinner or anything, but lots of drinks and dancing, so yay~ And according to some of my cousins, I looked "gorgeous" so that was nice to hear :P I'll throw up some pictures sometime later tonight or tomorrow.

I've become totally obsessed with BEJEWELED BLITZ on Facebook! I've been playing it almost non-stop since Monday :P

I started playing POKEMON PEARL again the other night too. It was in an attempt to distract me from my hangover from Saturday night. Didn't work as well as I was hoping, but it rekindled my love for the game :D

I'm having way too much fun playing around with random POKEMON and TRANSFORMERS images in Photoshop right now, so I'm ending my entry here for now so I can play with the pretty colours~

OMG it's so nice outside! I'm so happy I have today off. I think I'll go for a walk around the lake or soemthing~

My test on Wednesday went really well. 96%~ Not top mark, but close second :D

Being on the baking station this week was awesome! I made brownies, nanimo bars, cookies, a cake and two tiramisu~ Only downside was gaining a little weight do to constant tasting of batters and doughs :P Totally worth it though...

I went to the donair place here in town last night with Sarah. I've been meaning to go since it opened, but I just never got the chance to. It was so good! I love donairs in general, but this one was one of the best I've ever had. They even made the pita fresh! And the lamb was so tasty~ I'm getting hungry just thinking about it...

The bowling last Saturday went really well. I managed to scrounge up about $80 worth of donations, and the whole even raised over $50,000. And it was so much fun! We were all pretty bad by comparison to the other teams, but we had a riot. And I totally fell flat on my ass... bowling shoes are way too slippery...

My mom and my brother are coming to visit next weekend~ I can't wait to see them :D 6 MORE DAYS!

I was checking my bank account this morning only to discover that I got an extra $117 from the government yesterday. Gotta love that GST~

OK, I'm starting to get antsy, I'm going OUTSIDE!

OMG! My dad got a Mac Mini thing a little while ago, and I get to play on it right now~ It's so cool... Something tells me that I won't be able to look at my Windows PC the same way again...

Pretty uneventful week and a bit since last update. Sarah T and I went shopping last Friday at the Guilford mall in Surrey. I managed to find a really nice dress there for like $50 so score! We had a lot of fun wandering the mall and checking out all the store. We spent a while looking around the little anime store, there was a M.A.C makeup store we checked out... Lots of stuff :D

School's going well. Into my last semester now, and we've got our first test coming up next Wednesday. Vegetables, so it's gonna be really easy. AND I GET TO BE ON BAKING STATION NEXT WEEK! :D Mel is happy~

Going out for dinner with Dad, and possibly Kara, tonight for my Dad's birthday. It's not his offical birthday until Sunday, but I've got that bowling thing tomorrow night and school on Monday, so tonight's the best time for a dinner. Not sure where we're going, but it'll be fun so doesn't really matter.

I got my free copies of TWILIGHT and AUSTRALIA from work, as well as my $50 gift card. I love when my store wins contests, cause it means I get free stuff!

Yay! Time for STARGATE~

I GOT 92% ON MY FINAL TODAY~~~ XD

It was way easier than I thought it was going to be, so yay! :P Only one more semester to go!

Had to go get batteries and more clothes hangers after school today. And I ran into a friend from my Shoppers days. He moved to Alberta for school last August, but he's back here going to school again. Things in Alberta weren't going well I guess *shrug* Anyway, he invited me check out this battle of the bands thing in a couple of weeks, so he said he'll Facebook me and let me know the details :D

OMG THE NEW GOSSIP GIRL WAS ON LAST NIGHT!!!!!! It was sooooooo good~ Totally worth having to wait like 3 weeks for a new one :D

Lost another 3lbs over the weekend! Only 7 to go for WII FIT goal~ I know I yammer on about this a lot, and I don't mean to sound like I'm bragging, it's just that I've been trying to lose weight for a long time and now that I finally am, I get really excited about it. And honestly, this is the best I ever remember feeling about myself (health wise at least, I've always been happy with who I am :D)

Got a catering thing tomorrow night at school that I'm working at. I haven't been able to do any of the functions lately since they all seem to fall on Thursday, which is the day of the week I always work. So as soon as we got one for a day I could make it to, I threw my name down XD

I was watching THE CIRCUIT this morning on the sci fi channel while I was getting ready for school and I had to laugh a little; they were checking out how they made Rorschach's mask move in WATCHMEN and when the segment was done the host was all: Oh, Rorschach... what a bad ass!' XD IT'S SO TRUE!

No homework or studying tonight, so I plan on chilling out and finishing the book I've been reading: GODS BEHAVING BADLY. It's so funny! I seriously can't wait to finish it and see what happens, though I think I already know... It's amusing, but a little on the predictable side...
