GO LEAFS GO

Well, today was rather uneventful...although, this IS my third entry in three days...that makes my day somewhat more exciting. I went home this morning to do laundry, and to visit my grandma. It was a pretty good day, but not very productive in terms of studying. Meh...my last remaining exam is stats 107 on Monday, so I'm not too worried. While at home today I copied two of Jason's CD's...Frosh Two and Listen Up Frosh...wicked CD's :D. So I came back to school around dinner time, and ended up going out to Cooper's to watch the hockey game...it was a bitchin' time...hahahaha...that's a great word :). Anyway, the Leafs won, AND I won a cup! They had this raffle during the second intermission, and I actually won something! It's just a cheap plastic cup with a Detroit Red Wings logo on it, but the principle of the matter is that I actually won something...it made me very happy :). After I came home, I watched "Cheaper by the Dozen" along with Marla, Rachel, Steph and Linda. It was a decent movie, made better of course by the presence of Tom Welling...he's really hot :). Well, that about sums up today...it's supposed to be like 20 degrees tomorrow...that would be WICKED, because I really want summer to be here! So I'm gonna go to sleep soon and dream of warm weather... :)

UNOFFICIAL SUMMER PROJECT

Well, it appears as though I have acquired an unofficial summer project at work...while my main project is geotaxis, I have been given a supplemental Arts and Crafts summer project. Due to my apparent lack of "craftiness" every week I will have to complete a new project, which will then be judged...while I would love to explain all the details here, the whole system is much too involved and intricate, and I'm far too lazy to take the time and effort I would need to write it all down. If you want to know more about it, I can explain it to you...needless to say, by the end of the summer I should be able to knit, crochet, and so much more! Well, after spending the afternoon at work and learning about my new project, Jason and I went to Wal-Mart for McDonald's, and to shop for soccer cleats. After hitting up Wal-Mart, we went to check out Metrosport for shin pads...while Jason didn't find any shin pads, I managed to find an Aston Villa jersey for $29!!! It was great! After the soccer shopping excursion, Jason, Julia and I went to Demetre's...I had the old favourite, the Tongue Depressor...mmmmm...so good. Julia and I went to Milestone's after for drinks, where I had a Mojito. It was pretty good, but I still like the ones we made on Scrabble night much better. Well, that was essentially my day...I'm heading home to do laundry tomorrow and visit my grandma, so it should be a good day...but for now, I'm gonna get some sleep :).

NEW BLOG DESIGN!

Well, I've decided to try a little blog redecoration, and this is the result...I think it's pretty cool!! Actually, it was more Marla doing all the "redecoration"...which consisted of her explaining HTML to me and telling me exactly what to do while I sat around and reaped the benefits of a new kick ass blog! Now, I'm aware my last entry was on March 9th, and while I'd love to say I haven't written since then because my new kick ass blog has been under construction, the truth is that Marla and I (again, basically just Marla) did it tonight in about an hour. So, I really have absolutely no excuse for my laziness, and all I can offer is my promise to try and do better...I think I should be able to manage that since exams are over soon, and then it will be summer! And with summer comes lots of spare time to piss away...besides, I'll be living with Linda and Val, so they can make sure I keep up to date :). Anyway, a quick rundown of my life since March 9th...well, it will actually probably just be a rundown of the past week, because I can't remember back to March 9th. Well, let's start from April 17th...I had a scrabble bet going that day, and I lost...which is quite unfortunate, because now I have to get dressed up as Mimi (from the Drew Carey Show) for a day...hair, makeup and all. However, my pride is still somewhat salvageable, because I'm going for double or nothing :D...of course, if I lose that game, then while dressed as Mimi I have to offer lemonade to the Toronto Argos players...I'm aware that making this bet goes against the advice of virtually everyone I know and of course my own better judgment, but oh well...should be entertaining either way :). The night of the scrabble game was also mojito night. I had never had a mojito before, but they are REALLY good...especially if you're using 151 proof rum :P. Despite what you've read so far, the night actually was somewhat productive. I learned how to make quesadillas! And while it is still quite clear that I lack the ability to multi-task, I think my quesadillas were pretty darn good. So I'm not sure when the double or nothing game is going to be played...probably after exams are done...but I'll keep you posted :). My first exam was on the 22nd of April...Stats221. It was a pretty good exam, but I love math, so that was to be expected. In the middle of it there was a fire alarm though, which was a little weird. We all had to take our exams outside and wait for like 20 minutes. Virtually everyone was cheating...it was really weird. But then we got to go back inside and finish...all in all I think it went well. Tonight I had my genetics final. I probably didn't study as much as I should have, and spent most of the day in the fireplace lounge with Paul and Tarrah, talking about stuff that has absolutely nothing to do with yeast genetics, but it was really fun. And, it turned out that the exam was pretty good! I completely made up the last question, but other than that I feel good about it. So now I only have one exam left...Stats107. That's right, I'm taking a first year stats course :D. I needed to fill space in my schedule, and what better way to do it than with a first year stats class? It's not till next Monday, and I'm not too worried about it, so for now, I have a break for a few days...woo hoo! Anyway, the biggest news of the past couple of weeks has to be that I finally got a placement for my forensics 481 mentorship next year. I'm working with the Halton Police! It's really cool, because it's in Oakville, so it's nice and close. My mentor sounds super nice, and I'm really excited...apparently I'll get to go to different crime scenes and stuff...I think it's gonna be awesome! Well, I think that's it for now...I promise to try and stay more updated, and for now all I have to say is GO LEAFS GO!!!
