So yesterday, being the book store lover that I am, I decided to check out the near by Border's. It seemed like a nice enough place until I headed for the YA section and was appalled to find that the store had only two small bookshelves of young adult books.
Boredom is the true mother of invention. After leafing through a couple books I had no interest in and checking out the foreign language section, I hit upon the idea of hiding my first nerdfighter note.… Continue
So I've been doing my research this year instead of waiting for New Years Eve to roll around and making a list then. No this year I'm buckling down. I'm getting serious. I am going to do something right this year.
A lot of this stems from this whole "life's too short" phase I'm going through thanks to my grandfather passing away and my clinicals I had to do to become a certified nursing aide. When you talk to people in nursing homes, their biggest coverstation starter is what they… Continue

Yeah, life never really turns out they way we plan.. but hey, maybe it'll be even better! That's what I'm hoping for, haha. Right now, I'm just taking it all year by year. So I just picked out my classes for next year, woot! Art, French, English, Math, Chemistry, Media Studies, Communications, and World Religions. Yay! I have no idea what I'm doing! Haha.
Ooh, off the wall writing is awesome! Do the songs you write have a genre?
Pixar dominates all! Whoot! Haha, love it. Wall-E is one of my favourite films ever. (: Ah! Toy Story was like an obsession as a kid. I remember we would run around quoting it word for word. Haven't seen it in so long..
If I could go anywhere, I'd want to go everywhere. Haha. Um, but highlights would probably be... Scotland (again), France (see the entire Louvre!), Italy, Spain, Greece, Egypt (pyramids!), South America, Africa, Australia, Central Europe (really interested in WWII, so I'd want to see Auchwiez [sp?] and all those main sites). Where'd you want to go? Do you like history? What time period interests you the most?
So do you still have snow? It's been absolutely pleasant up here. I even put away my winter coat.
Wow, you like, got your life planned out. I wish I could figure it out that easily. All I know is I like art, and I like film, and I like theatre. So I'm looking for a bit of a combination. Like maybe visual or special effects. Or art direction. Oh, I did some stage management a while back, that was fun, maybe I'll do something like that. Or maybe I'll just pack up and travel the world, haha. Who knows? But right now the plan mainly is: Go to Sheridan, get my Bachelor's of Applied Arts (in Animation), work for Pixar. Haha. I know that will probably never happen, I mean, I don't even know if I like animation (I like it, I just don't know if I'll like doing it). But yeah, right now that's the dream job. But I'm just kind of hoping I'll figure it all out along the way.
What kind of stuff do you want to write? Anything in particular?
Haha yeah. I actually live in the most southern part of Canada. We have the same latitude as northern California. Fun fact of the day for ya! But yeah, over the summer we drive a few hours north to the lake. Relax for a couple of weeks.
Wow, you have a busy summer planned out. I haven't even started thinking about my future (okay, lie, I think about it all the time, I just haven't done anything). So what are you looking to get into? I'm guessing nursing? Why's that?
Usually we miss about a week all together for snow. But this year's been really light, only ONE snow day. Thing is up here, the only thing you really stop for is heavy ice. Otherwise, you dig your way there, haha. But we usually get one big end of season storm in March, so I look forward to that. How long do y'all usually have snow for?
Yep, we get July and August off. Plus a few extra days. It's nice, I can't wait for it to come. Don;t have any plans yet though, except to go up north, but we do that every year. What do you do over the summer?
Well in my area we only have elementary (JK-Grade 8) and high school, but that's because I live in a small town. Usually you have elementary, middle, and high school. I don't know if we have Jr. High, I thought it was the same as middle school. We usually have a two week Christmas break, then March break (one week in March), and then after exams we get three days off. That's pretty much it. It's nice though. Do you go away for March break? Do you have March break?
Awe! That must have sucked! The worst we've ever gotten was three days no power, but that was in the summer so it wasn't too bad.
Yay for your team winning! (I didn't watch)
Canada is very snowy right now. It's been letting up lately, but right now it's snowing like there's no tomorrow. Hopefully schools are closed, hahaha. It's not too cold though, which is nice, only when the wind acts up is when you start to freeze.
I just started second semester, it's actually better than I thought it would be. Have you started second semester yet? I don't really know if your school system is the same as mine, but I'm sure it's similar.
Ah sorry! Sometimes things get all mucked up and I miss comments. My bad.
Anyways, I'm good. Things are good. I have to go back to school tomorrow, not fun. But otherwise I am very content. How bout you?
