Not an enigma, just a contradiction.
It's been a long time.

So...

I'm off to Uganda for a month leaving on around May 13th. All that's standing in the way now is one more exam. By 3:30 tomorrow I am done! I can't believe it-- Uganda. A dream coming true!!!

Also found out today I have got a job here in London for when I get back. Working as an inclusion councellor so I am very excited. Probably try to pick up a second job as well.

ALSO- I LOVE GORDON RAMSEY and I just thought you all should know that. I had never even heard of him like a week ago. But now, oh man what a guy. The icon speaks the truth. You should all watch Kitchen Nightmares.

Not an enigma, just a contradiction.
I am pretty sure that Ryan was kinda trying to ask me out today at the end of French, but I avoided the question and then left. He just asked if he could see me again before the end of the year- but I will see him in class on Thursday and then at the exam, so I just pointed that out and then left.
I feel bad- but I am not going out with him.

Oddly enough part way through today I got really tired of waiting for ah0 lets say Brian- to message me back, and was just thought, fuck this, I dont need this at all. I'm done with that kid for now. Ha! Famous last words. Saw him in the cafe when getting dinner, and long story shorter, he came up with the idea of me defecting from my team on Thursday and going over to his. And of course he made me happy- and I was all smiley again.

This is the problem. He does just enough to keep the faintest glimmer of hope alive- even though I know it'll never happen. I have precious little confidence built up- and rejection from him would pretty much destroy that for a while.

Also, Justin Trudeau as Talbot Papineau- other than the mustache making me think he looked a bit like Hitler the first time they flashed the pic- it was awesome. I'm amused though that he played Papineau and is running in Papineau.

So much reading to do, and just not alot of motivation to do it. I was productive yesterday. Not so much today.

Though frick- things have been goign really well. I hope we get another soccer game together sometime soon. Cause that was awesome. As was the going away party. And lots of other things.

The end.
Well, not really.
But for now.

Cause sometimes life is just full of Thunder and Sun [Mar. 13th, 2007|01:39 am]

Has anyone else ever had that moment where you realize that your slight attraction has blossomed into a full blown-always makes you smile -over analyze every single thing- look forward to even just a hi all day- crush, and at the same time you realize it'll never happen?

Gotta love those moments.
And I'll see him pretty much everyday for at least the rest of the week. And whisper in his ear.

Also, busiest, most stressful crazy time of my life right now. I shouldn't even be giving 10 seconds of thought to this. But- SOPH INTERVIEWS SOON!!! Super-pumped.

Arrgg, essay.

Tis Picture time... [Mar. 10th, 2007|12:02 am]

Hey all, long time no update, facebook and school have taken over my life.

I finally managed to take some time to post the pictures from the London Josh Groban concert. The pics were all taken by Erin's mom. She took 141 from the night. There are not nearly that many, but still beware it may take a crazy long time to load. Sorry.

So here are the best onesCollapse )

Anyway... [Feb. 8th, 2007|12:31 am]

Wow, it's been forever since I updated here. Facebook seems to have taken over.

I had no idea February was a demon month of stress at university. Why was there no warning of this?
But I think I have figured it out, double major in Childhood and Social Relations and Social Justice and Peace. I know Social justice and peace sounds like a cracked out left wing hippie program, and some courses are, but there are courses about food distribution systems, and African development and other such things which interest me alot.

Also, I'm pathetic. Mr. Insanley attractive man said hi to me today and we talked for, ohh, I dunno, 2 minutes and it made at least my whole day. But, ahh, fuck, so hot. And a drama nerd.

Silent Asylum "tribute" to Creed = one of the best things ever.

Paula Perri makes me swoom, I'm not even gay and part of me wants her babies.

Wheeee [Nov. 8th, 2006|02:23 am]

New Josh Groban CD tomorow, HMV called and said it was in, so as soon as french is done I will be going to the mall to pick it up, bonus DVD included.
Also concert dates will apparently be up tomorow, and I am going this time. So excited.

There are some complications with going back to Smiths Falls for MassO for Katimavik though. Mostly becuase I don't have 200 dollars to spend on train or bus tickets. But I really want to go, so I have no idea what to do about that, I shall have to phone Nadine and the Parents.

I should get my mark back for my first childhood exam. If we don't get them back I shall be angry. I think it went well, but sometimes one can think that and still end up with a shit mark.

Too many stories to tell, not enough time. The sexy dance was performed, and it was awesome. Of course how could it not be when we were performing our sexy dance to Filthy Gorgeous by the Scissor Sisters. I have managed to convert a few new fans.

I have at least one part in the one act plays we are doing next for Kings Players, and I also am an understudy for another part. It was unexpected but exciting.

Sociology exam on Thursday, scares the shit out of me.

Why do I still want to be friends with Francis after everything?? Why?

JOSH!!!!! WOO- HOO!!!

Itès only a few minutes long, and it is awesome. I go to school with the guys who did it.


Relay for life was fun! Lots of music, and fun times, and talking to Pieter for the first time. He did Katimavik as well, and it was awesome to talk to someone else who knows the program.

Do you ever feel like there is ever just too much? I don't know where to start. Or what I can do from my dorm room. I was told tonight that I need to pick a cause, but I can't. And really I don't think I need to.
Here is something I don't understand. Factories in the 3rd world pay their workers horrible wages. What we are always asked is, "would you be willing to pay more for a shirt that you know was made in beter conditions?" This question avoids the issue. The problem is the insane profit being pulled down by the corporations. The price to us could stay the same, workers could get payed fair wages, and decent working conditions- but the profits would have to decrease. That is where the problem lies, in the huge and ever growing gap between the rich and the poor.

I am finding lots of places that I want to apply for this summer, hopefully I won't have to end up in a shitty city job this summer.

Childhood was good today, it's about time. Actually all my classes went well today, I am actually getting all there "discourses". Or, at least according to one of the TA's.
I have more rants, but I don't think anyone wants to hear any of those.
