What a fun evening :)
Braden and me watching one of our favorites, Cloverfield over Skype!!
SO COOL! Technology is amazing!! :)


Yay. It's Friday! :)
I still have to get up early tomorrow for work.
TOMORROW IS MAY 1ST!!! Holy crap!!!
May!!? The LAST month of school!!!!??!
OH MY GOD. This excitement level is to the max. Oh god I cannot wait.

I am finally starting to understand Macbeth.
It's not THAT bad when you actually understand it too!
I mean, after we watch the movie in class (Which I must add seems slightly inappropriate with the excessive amounts of blood and gore which I am sure are to offend some people) although I am finding it helpful. Then reading it, then reading the "revised" version online in "regular" English, and then the scene/act analysis's, it's actually alright!
I guess it's a good way to end the final month of school. One big concept to focus one. It could be worse.

So I think I am going to go out and buy a new xbox360. I thought about surviving without it until AFTER summer, but then I realized, what will I do the entire month of July...lol! Not!
I can't wait to get out biking. The grass is even beginning to turn green from all the snow! :)

Just one of those days'

R.I.P Xbox 360.
I got you back in 2007 for Christmas. You were one of the best gifts I had even received. You brought with you hours of fun, and provided me a way to play videos games with my broski on the other side of the country.
You lived a long, but spectacular few years.
It's sad to see you go :(
RIP December 2007 - April 2010.

What a shitty day. Go to school, get hounded about Shakespear & Macbeth. Then sit for an hour in my other class and listen to lower grade kids talk as if they know everything. Annoying.
Then off to Photoshop class, which I should add, I am on the entire next unit while the rest of the class hasn't even finished the last unit's final project. Stupid.

Finally I get home and have a chance to enjoy some Xbox with Braden, when it decided to slap me in the face and add another negative to the day. Wonderful right?

To top this all off, there is a fricken' blizzard outside. C'mon, why the hell are we getting 10-20cm of snow when May is in 2 days!!! UGH!!! I just want to go to sleep and wake up in a month, with a new xbox sitting in my room.

What a shitty day. Can't wait to go to sleep.

I just remember a positive to the day actually, I should add it in here.
My mood just increased a little, one because Braden just came back on Skype and called, and two I remembered something from earlier.

I'm big into planning my spending, calculating how much I will make on the 15th, etc.
One thing that I find really cool is Vacation Pays. It's wicked. It's like getting 2 times the pay check in one, WHILE you go on a vacation!!
Anyways, I really was lost when it came to calculating this one... I don't like being lost. LOL.
So I decided to figure it out. I calculated it out to around $2xx. I was kinda bummed out. I remember last years being twice that amount.
So I went into my stack of previous pay checks (I have every one from the past 2 years, LOL!) and found where it tells me how much Vacation pay I have!!
Well, let me say it put a BIG smile on my face.

I don't think it outweighs my xbox problem though, I guess I could get a new xbox with that added bit, but then again, I could get some totally awesome matching "I (Insert heart here) NYC" shirt instead.

a bridge too far...

So beautiful. Summer, I cannot wait for thou.

Soo...34 days left of school. THIRTY FOUR. Can you believe that?
Honestly, I cannot. 34. That's SUCH a small number.

The same thing has happened the past few years here for me. I start off counting in September, 330 days until summer arrives again and I get to visit with my best friend in the entire world.

Seriously. I have no idea what I used to do with my summers. Braden is like, my life. Well, all my friends and family are, but my best friend from kindergarten, now that's a biggie. I have no idea what I would have ever done in life. It means the world to me that I am in such amazing contact with him. We have the biggest plans for our future together, and I really cannot wait.

Here's a shot of NYC, shot by a photographer I followed named Steve Kelley. He has been in NYC for the past little while, and uploads amazing photos like this a few times a week. Each and every photo is an amazing motivational drive.

It's snowing outside. I don't know why. Calgary is like that though, and we just deal with it. Everybody here knows the weather man is never correct, and that if the sun is out, it does not mean you don't need a jacket on. So it's snowing, but I know it will be melted tomorrow. Then we will hit up to the 20C again sometime in the week, and then is could snow again. Little fluffy snow, that melts on the ground, and makes the grass green. It's not that bad when you think about it. We could have feet of snow like we did in December.

Anyways, I'm off to go to the mall to maybe look at some clothing that I may want to get before the summer. I also want a case for my blackberry.
It is April 21st, 2010.
17 years ago today, I was born. I was stubborn too, I didn't want to come out the easy way, oh no, I made it an effort for everybody. I was delivered via C-section 17 years ago today, and weighed in at 7 pounds, 20oz, with a length of 19 inches!

Today, I weight 150 pounds, and stand almost 5ft 8"
It's crazy huh?
I haven't posted anything in such a long time. I've been so lazy, busy, etc.
It has been a crazy month of school. Everything was changed up, all my classes changed with the new term, and I am now done math. I am on my last term of the year, and really glad it's almost over. My days are pretty simply. I have 2 option classes, (Both art related, one's computer photo shop and the other is art, with paintbrushes. Lol) and then I also have 1 core, English. I'm in the highest level of English, and although I like English the most, I am not liking it. We get massive amount of homework, and not just simple homework, project, after project, after project. Then we have "drama" projects too. Why the hell do we act in an English Literary class? I would have joined drama if I wanted to do this shit. I hate it. It's the worst experience of my life. I cannot act. I'm a very shy person, and acting in front of people is not enjoyable at all.

So school has been crap. Well, I guess just English. But yeah. I've also been working, and saving. This is probably the first time I've saved this much money before. I hope to buy my plane ticket sometime soon for the summer. Which is SO exciting. I cannot wait. Like really, I'm not even gonna go into detail and talk about it in this blog because I cannot even express my excitement through these words.

It's my 17th Birthday on Wednesday. I swear to god if one kid even things of gifting me these "birthday bumps" I will give him a bump back in the face... Haha. So I am 17 soon. Which is also very exciting. Here in Calgary the legal drinking age is 18. (19 in Ontario, and 21 in the USA. This makes for 3 celebrations haha) Anyways, I had a small little party yesterday night. I had originally only invited a few people, and some of the people could not make it and said they were busy. I was kinda bummed out about it, but still wanted to have fun. We planned on having another little party next weekend for all the people that couldn't come on short notice. Little did I know that my sneaky mom had secretly invited all these people to come, and told them to tell me they were busy! What a little trickster. So when all these people who I invited, who said they couldn't come, all of a sudden started showing up, I was super excited. It was a fun time, lots of laughing, and chatting!

I've slightly been slacking in the photography department lately. I have a ton of pictures, just haven't been uploading them as much lately. It kinda sucks, because my views have dropped lately due to my lack of uploads. I gotta get back into the habit of things.

I cannot wait for summer right now. It's actually getting warmer out here for the first time this year, and it's just teasing me about the warm weather to come.
