Hi all, I know I haven't written anything in so long, but ever since I've gotten back from my trip I've been sick and getting back to school.

The trip was a lot of fun. Venice, Florence and Pisa were beautiful, but I have to say I liked Venice the best. I got to see really amazing things and I learned a lot more about the renaissance, but I will talk about that later when I may be able to get some pictures up as well. The digital camera broke two days into the trip and I don't have a scanner so, I'll try to work something out.

Not too much has happened, school is actually going really well. I'm enjoying Humanities class, and we get to go on work experience on Oct.9th - Oct.20th, it's when we volunteer at a company for 2 weeks. I'm going to a veterinary clinic, it should be fun working with the animals. My brother was giving me suggestions for where I should have gone, cause he's an auditor and he's always going to businesses around the city. He said I should check out this homosexual escort service he has to audit on Friday... I think I'll pass.

And apparently my mom just inadvertently gave away every single dress I own :|

I swear I have become an insomniac, Or nocturnal at the very least. I can't sleep at night anymore, I'm up until 7 in the morning. I end up sleeping all my days away and it feels like such a waste of time. I've ended up watching the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie 3 times in the last 2 days. Which isn't bad, it just reminds me how much I love Johnny and that movie. Great thing is I've been able to get back to reading though, I've finished 5 novels since summer started. Night by Elie Wiesel, was very sad, and depressing, but a good read, so I had to lighten in up and I read that newest Georgia Nicolson book. It's something to do but I read so fast I have to keep finding new books. The trip to Italy is coming up so fast, I leave on the 14th. I have to start getting ready soon.

Well, I'm back from the dead.

Actually I've been busy with school and being boring to write anything. It's exam time so I've been stuck studying Math.

I went camping for my friend's birthday though. Lot's of fun. We played rugby, where Bianca and I kicked butt (sorry Viv) and we had a campfire with marshmallows, they're so good, and sweet. We spent time on the dock late at night, which was fun until I was reminded of my fear of large whales. I don't know why I have it, and I know they would not be in lakes, but anywho. I also learned that my three friends have all had dreams featuring our Math teacher, except me. Weirdos.

I went to the dentist on Wednesday, it turned out alright. I have had the absolute worst experience with dentists through my life. I was given 2 pills to sedate me, I had to take them 45 min. before, so I was walking around the mall the dentists office is in, and I got a little woozy in Chapters, I got a weird look from at least one guy, when I was crusin' the entertainment section. I was swaying back and forth a bit. It could have been from the "History of Porn" book I accidentally picked up though. I mean honestly, who needs a book on that, and it was right beside the one on James Dean. Sheesh. The pills didn't even actually kick in, so I stayed awake the whole time. Then I got home and they worked, I slept for about 11 and half hours.


Only three days of school left and then my two exams. I passing math now, you need 60% to pass the course and I have exactly 60%. So I need to get a 60% or more on the provincial exam or I fail, and have to go to summer school.

On the way home from school today I passed by a very large parked truck, and I swear there was a cardboard cut-out of Jesus Christ in the passenger's seat.

So I've decided to go to MileStone's downtown for dinner on my birthday. My mom is trying to figure out something else we can do there after. We did find out the Bard on the Beach the outdoor theatre company that puts on Shakespeare's plays starts on June 1st. They're doing a Midsummer Night's Dream this year. My mom's looking into getting tickets to that.

So both teams I'm, I guess you could say cheering for, in the playoffs won tonight. Yay for Ottawa and Calgary, no I'm not a traitor I have my reasons. Besides watching the playoffs and not having at least one team to cheer for is pointless and there is no way I'm not watching the playoffs. Jason got the game winning goal, 2 points and 2nd star tonight, so I'm happy about that.

Nothing much going on, that's why my entries are few and far between. I bought tickets to Phantom of the Opera in August though. I'm sadly really excited. And my birthday is coming faster then I thought it would. I need ideas on what to do for it though. I have no idea and I'm really not big on parties. My mom keeps asking about what we're gonna do for it.

Evening~

So you know how I get really sick once a month and miss 1 or 2 days of school don't be surprised if that happens tomorrow. I got horribly sick again and sadly this time it was in church. Not even halfway through it I started to get really nauseous and dizzy, so my mom had to take me to the bathroom cause I had no idea where I was going and I actually tripped up about 3 times. Half the ladies in the church came to see if I was okay, while I freakin' layed on the floor. Finally my brother Jonathan had to come and carry me to the car. It was embarrassing and I hate when this happens.

Steven got a promotion at work in his auditing job. He's gonna start doing field work, going to businesses around Surrey, Burnaby and Vancouver. Which seems like it would be more fun than sitting at the office. But they had to go and give him a badge, like he needs anymore authority haha.

I've been going to hockey games lately. It's about all I've done lately. But I have to say it is the most fun I have. Honestly nothing makes me happier than going downtown to a hockey game. I had so much fun last night, and I bought a Canuck's shirt.

I have nothing to do or say right now. And this is starting to sound like a letter I'm writing to a distant relative. Although I wouldn't say the freakin' part.

My brother is quarantined in the basement of the government building he works in. I'm not really worried only because I don't think it's that bad, he's just not allowed to leave the area, and it's closed off now. Police and ambulances are there as well as the bio-hazard unit and they're trying to sort everything out. I don't know exactly what's wrong, but it's got something to do with a package delivered to the department. Hopefully he's going to be okay though. We'll see when he gets out of there.

But for good news, CANUCKS WON! Finally, after all that losing, I don't even know if we're going to keep winning, but for the time being I can just be really happy over this win. Of course I hope we continue to play well and win though, so we can stay in the playoffs. And Jason missed the Ottawa game due to a 'hip pointer injury' whatever that means.

So I have managed to mustered up a failing mark of 53.9% in Math, which I hope to bump up if that's at all possible, I really am trying. Good school news though, on the provincial/really big government final exam for English I got a 98%. All the crap news is evened out by the good.

The Vancouver rain has showed up again though and it's bringing me down after all the sun, so I've decided to focus on the fact that tomorrow we get out early from school and after this week is over I'll start really getting back into school. So I'll cheer myself up. Time to go rush to do my planning project.

Have a good night~

[music |Old Hockey Highlights]

SPRING BREAK!!! At least saying it is exciting, because I'm not doing anything for it. Everyone at my house it working, so I am trapped in my house. Movies and hockey games ahoy!

We did career cruising in school, you know when you take that test and they give you a list of jobs that you're suited for. I got:

1.Music/Art therapist
2.Costume Designer
&
3.Anthropologist

as my top three and I'm not all that interested in any of them, but they aren't that bad. I'm failing math though, which is making me really sad and stressed out. I'm scared that I might fail completely. All this graduation and planning for your future in the world is freaking me out a little. I don't want to end up somewhere crap in downtown Vancouver. Well I won't be that dramatic.


Well I went shopping again, because I actually woke up fairly early today. Yesterday I went to the mall as well and made my grey shirt with 'Freddie Lives' in hot pink lettering on it. I said I would, so I did. Today though my mom took me out again and I bought 2 black zip up hoodies, a pair of straight leg jeans that I love, a necklace and the vest I said I was gonna get. The best part is my mom bought them for me except the vest. I paid, but it turned out to only be $14.00 so good stuff.

Well my mom's planned out the trip now and I'm very happy about it. We're going to Dublin on Aug.14 and then we fly to Venice. We stay there for a few days and then take a train through Tuscany to Florence and stay there for a while. So should be fun, I don't get back til' about Sep.2, which gives me three days until school re-opens :| So it looks like the first half of my summer is sitting at home watching tons of movies.

I've started to draw the pretty boy from that advertisement that Bianca loves so dearly, he looks alright but I think it will have to become a joint effort between me and her because I can't draw hands or a face. Which makes him an unknown amputee. Poor guy.

I know that I'm starting to crave something but I don't know what it is yet. Something like a nice soup or a nice panini.

and I kind of really want this, even if I'm not a huge We are Scientists fan yet. I really want their cd.:



This is a fun shirt, a menacing shirt, a navy blue shirt with a pink
design. The XS size is cap-sleeved and fitted for girls, who — thank
god — have their own distinct delightful shape.

I prefer this shirt to the other one but I don't like the colours, and I really want it in navy with hot pink writing. So we'll wait for a new colour. hahaha i are scientists


The classic. We’ve published this design for probably three years now;
each time we print it, different colors are used, never to be repeated.
This iteration: chocolate text on cat-nose pink. A collectors item that
happens to look good with a light grey suit.

Well I'm sick again, I don't know why. I guess my immune system is crap. I've been pumped full of disgusting medicines and some weird nasal spray. So now I have to worry about missing two days of school, I hope I didn't miss too much. On the brightside I got to watch the Canada/Czech Republic game. We won, barely and all I have to say is thank god for Martin Brodeur. And than I kind of half sunk into a semi-conscious state and I remember parts of the View hahaha. And yay for Team Canada (women) who won the gold medal yesterday!

I haven't written in so long. I've been feeling swamped lately with all my final exams and my english provincial, but it's over and second semester has started. I miss my socials class but I'm really enjoying art class, even if drawing frustrates me beyond sanity. Anyway I haven't been on the computer a lot due to the fact that I got a virus. Which I sadly was promptly blamed for. It's fixed now but I fear I my have put another one on it. Crap. I'm honestly too exhausted to continue this because I woke up at 5:00 am and 4:30 am this week to watch Olympic hockey games. Plus I'm waking up at 6:00 am this morning for the same reason. I need to get to my hair dressing appointment at 2:00 anyway so it works out.

Maybe I'll have the energy to be interesting later. If not, have a good weekend.

I've been in such a lovely mood all day. I mean I don't feel particularly accomplished. Today all I did was catch up on sleep that I've missed all week and watch the hockey game, but it was a nice day still. Plus the sun was out and that always puts me in a good mood. I realize that I haven't written anything in a long while but nothing has really happened. School feels all consuming right now and I think that's why I hate it. It seems to be restricting everything else. Like I don't have the time to do anything else or else if I do I feel guilty because I should be doing schoolwork. Hockey is killing me lately, we keep going into losing skids and we were in the middle of one right now. My Matty Cooke was missing and so was Markus today. We were winning 3-1 but they tied and we went to overtime. Ruutu of all people scored for us to win it and Alex Auld did amazing tonight, which for some reason made me feel very proud and protective of him. I don't know why.

I saw Brokeback Mountain again, I still didn't cry but I know what they mean when they say you feel horrible once you leave the theatre and think about the movie. It is really just a great movie and I would highly recommend it. I love Heath in the movie, his acting is great. Looking back on the week I see that I haven't done much so I'm not going to keep on with this entry rambling on just to fill space.

Good Night

Great Night For Hockey [Jan. 5th, 2006|08:22 pm]

[mood |jubilantjubilant]

WE WON

Yay, Canada won the gold medal at the World Junior hockey championships. We beat Russia 5-0 and Justin Pogge got his shutout! What can I say I told you I love Pogge, I have a thing for goaltenders, but even if I didn't he was great. He won player of the game, and something else. Lots of hugging and leaping when the buzzer went, and it lasted for a half an hour. It was so exciting. The only sad part is when they turn the cameras to the Russians and they're crying their eyes out. The camera closed up on Evgeni Malkin (the best player in the tournament)and you could actually see his chest heaving he was sobbing so hard. Really ironic, when they flip it back to the Canadians who were freaking out and cheering. The night ended by the off-tune singing of the National anthem by our team, as they had their arms around each other, swaying. It was funny. Fun all around.



PoggeCollapse )


And the Canucks won, FINALLY! It wasn't pretty, or even that well played, but it was a win. Markus scored and Ruutu scored a pretty little penalty shot. Who knew he could shoot like that? On a side note The U.S.A. lost to Finland for the bronze, it's sad for the Americans who were the favourites this year, but I'm happy for Finland because they just seemed to want it that much more.

Good Night Folks

Okay so I haven't written an entry about a hockey game in a while but wow that was a great game. It was so hyped up being us versus Ottawa and it turned out so good. There was a bunch of penalties, but it wasn't so bad, and there were no fights. Lots of good hockey. Markus scored 1:07 into the game on our first power play. Yay Markus! Then Ottawa scored short-handed. Boo Ottawa! Then Henrik Sedin scored when Dominic came out of his net too far. Yay Henrik! And sadly Bryan Allen our own defencemen tipped it in our net. Boo .... everyone. No more goals were scored so we had to go to overtime, where we had a powerplay and I just kept thinking come on we have to score here. We didn't. We had to go to a shootout (no not the midwestern type with guns on front of a saloon) Unfortunately we tied in the shootout, so it went to a sudden death shootout. I was seriously having a heart attack. Ottawa shot first and Alex made a great save. So Daniel Sedin went for us and SCORED!! YAYAYA I love how the tv camera was shaking because the 18,000 people in GM place were freaking out. Downtown is really gonna be crazy. My brother better get my t-shirt already.

[music |Hockey on t.v.]

Well I'm back from the day-trip to Leavenworth, Washington. The bus ride there was 4 hours and bus ride back was 4 hours, so lots of time to kill. Viv's cd player skipped a little a the start, but I worked it out. I think I listened to The Beatles, The Clash and Green Day for 4 hours straight. I honestly didn't do anything else other than listen to music and look at the scenery. The scenery was really nice though, it was up a mountain pass, and it was snowing pretty heavy, which is great to look at when you're warm inside a bus. When we got there, all there was to do really was look in stores, so we had a look and I bought a small tin with Snoopy on it. Dinner was crap, the waiter was a newbie (but cute) and me and Jonathan bought a huge cup of really good Gelato. I slept most of the bus ride back, all in all it was a pretty okay day. We didn't take a lot of pictures, we wanted to get into a warm store as often as we could.
