birthday! [03 Apr 2006|06:54pm]
It was my birthday yesterday! I did homework for most of the day then ran dowtown with Tamara to Next to get my tragus pierced. The guy who did it actually helped Mattie out with her mishap with her navel after some idiot while we were on tour in the Czech pierced it and put the wrong length in her belly button, basically her belly button swelled around it and it sunk in-not pretty. He was really nice and funny which always helps when you are about to have a needle go through a huge chunk of skin. I was more excited about getting it pierced than nervous, it hardly hurt i was expecting way more pain after watching everyone tear up and moan in the Czech. Beck was also playing which made it ten times better because he always makes me happy and wish for summer. Then it was Tamara's turn. She was still contemplating getting a monroe piercing and i told her that i didnt support her getting it done unless she was 100% sure (haha great supportive friend i am , but hey it's a big decision) in the end she went for it. She got to wear a sexy purple dental bib to catch her drool. I think it looks really cute, it's so much of a change to see someone with it though. Anyways, we then had another adventure while on the sky train to waterfront. Tamara and I were walking down to the sky train and the doors were about to shut so tamara jumps on so i yelled " no tamara thats the east bound!" she was totally unaware that i wasnt even on the same train as her lol. Of course i never have my cell phone on me since i basically only use it as an alarm (all of you know if i pick up my phone it's basically a miracle) so i had to find the transit security guards and use there phone. About ten minutes later Tamara pulled up on the Westbound skytrain and we finally were reunited. On the sea bus ride home we met Brent who graduated from Argyle a couple of years ago, what a nice boy. Then i went home and my aunt,cousins,tara and sylvia all came up for cake and presents. After they left i did more law homework, I am getting further and futher behind in all of my classes because of Europe. Ughhh .... So yup that was my birthday in a nutshell..a large nutshell i guess.


Can't wait tell Victoria!

I am sick... once again. Ive been highly medicated for the bast 48 hours, it made yesterdays band concert pretty exciting. Our Comp. Civ class went to go see "Why We Fight" out near UBC yesterday as well, I enjoyed it but it was kind of slow towards the middle (the majority of our class fell asleep) it picked up at the end thankfully. If you haven't heard about it it was bascially a documentary about why troops are fighting in Iraq and the lies told by the American government. Guen Dire ( i have no idea how to spell his name) was in it, which was pretty cool since i have met him and listened to some of his historical/political speeches (including when he came to Argyle in 11th grade). Anyways i have to go talk to Mr.Peake about Europe

[ mood | lazy ]

Today I rolled out of bed at six AM pulled on some sexy sweatpants and hauled my ass down to the cove, where i was awarded with a nice cold seat in the coach boat. I kind of wanted to row because it was so cold out (and i would have been able to warm up) but the 2 hour practice gave Kelsey and I time to talk about prom,guys,10-year reunions,our parents, and graduation presents. Jax i will fill you in on Kelsey's graduation present to the both of us in photo, basically it has to do with the Reach,alcohol,and free ride home.The rest of the day i went to Park Royal to buy a new suitcase and purse for Austria. I also talked on the phone with my Grandma which was really sad (it was the first time ive talked to her since my parents split-up and my Nana died) and the length of the telephone call was filled with tears.

On and more happy note, Kristel's birthday is soon! Yay! I am so excited for it but we still have to go over the details, and find out what Kristel wants as well.What do you want Kristel(remember im pretty handy with a paintbrush when i want to be).Anyways i gotta go write a history paper on appeasment.

my month [01 Mar 2006|06:37pm]
My month has been shit. My parents are seperating and my Nana died on wednesday. Last week I thought our Winter Prom would make it all better; but sadly it did not, i got way to drunk at Aqua and made out with David Duggans,kissed Travis,and talked to a also very drunk Derek Atchison for the rest of the night.....

I woke up with a list of regrets.

Everyone pray for high winds! PLEASE! If we get strong enough winds (like those in the past week) maybe just maybe the ferries going over to Victoria on Saturday (for rowing nationals) will be cancelled..... oh how i hope. Please everyone pray for wind warnings.

Another day of school, another day of pig disection. The pigs are starting to really smell; thankfully, today was the last day (boy am i not sad to be saying goodbye to Arlene our pig)Anyways in other news JEFF TWEEDY IS TOMORROW! I CAN'T BELIEVE WE ARE GOING TO MISS IT!! That's it , we have to go the the Sasquatch festival if they play at the Gorge again. We have to get there if they do , ill steal my mums car if i have to (and with my amazing driving skils we might even manage to get there alive).I am so mad that we didnt work our way into getting ticket's and ID's for tomorrows show, ive been listening to Wilco for days now trying to make up for not going (believe me it's now working).Three hour spare tomorrow! I promised Mrs.Barry that i would take pics of Mrs.Gavel's art class so i have to go there during D block for a couple of minutes, but im totally free after that. Anyways i'll talk to y'all (ha) about our LAST D BLOCK SPARE EVER tomorrow.

Jax, Kelsey emailed me and he said he wasn't sure yet about going out on the water ( because UBC still haS to bring out our coach boats) so bring boots and shoes!I kinda hope we go out , but i also want practice on the erg for Monster Erg (which is this weekend ekk!)

We all have to have a movie night, its been awhile

[ mood | annoyed ]

I decided to finally tell Ms. Walter that I have offically dropped her course, to say the least it didnt go over well. I spent around 5 mins after class being yelled at by Ms.Walter's about how i was being "ridiculous" and that she would "certainly not" let me get away with a W for the Withdrawl of the course. The only other person in the room was Kevin (Justin's brother) so it wasnt that bad, ive actually become friends with him over the last couple of months because we both like to bitch about math and band. Anyways after being yelled at the tears were totally coming and i just said okay and booked it out of the room, Kevin had waited for me by the door to see how it went so he talked to me for a bit and told me she was a cow haha. It shouldnt bug me that much because little does she know she cant do i thing about it , I have already withdrawn and Mr.Scorda was completely fine with it, but i have NEVER EVER been disliked by a teacher ( lol that totally made me sound like the biggest suck-up/teacher's pet). I have never had such a crappy relationship with a teacher. Another reason why i wanted to withdraw is because this course has been bringing down my GPA, fuck Kayzad made Top Scholar!! that should be me!! ( and yes im totally jealous of his lazy ass). Anyways the rest of the day was fine, went to band,english, and bio some courses that are actually enjoyable. Gotta go study the reproductive system for bio. Oh and tomorrow Jax and I have to go to the cove ( or we might meet our coach in Lynn Valley) to go over sports awards for the fall rowing season, so sorry Ky and Christy but we wont be coming to the Quay. Kyla are you going to A block??Is anyone going to yearbook??

love you all!

I just finished my english hwk, we had to write a narrative about a childhood memory so i decided to write about the time Tess, Liam and I came up with the brilliant idea of making a landscape pond in their backyard, man do i feel sorry for her parents now...good times good times. I couldnt go to Diaso today with Joseph, Shelly, and Jax either because of all of this hwk and studying, i so wanted to blow a good 30 dollars at the japanese 2 dollar store! Anyways other than hwk i competited in the Beat the Beast- Provincial Indoor Rowing Championships, it was intense people were puking and blowing knees everywhere.I came in 13th in B.C. so not bad i guess. Yay my weekend has sucked lol. On friday i painted shirts with jax for Beat the Beast ( we painted a picture of a guy holding a bat hitting a rowing machine, very fitting uniform for a indoor rowing championship if you ask me) then saturday i spent 6 hours in a huge gymnasium nervous, sick, and close to tears, and finally today i did hwk and cleaned my room. Wow its sad.....

Looking forward to tuesday's three hour spare!

So Tess just left my house for the ferry, she's going to Tofino with her parents and brothers for Christmas. I am so so so so jealous. Anyways yesterday i finished my sisters present and i also got myself a ring from the same place it is sooo pretty but its for Christmas so i cant have it until then, i wish i could say more about it but then my sister would totally know what i got her.Drew and Ben are over so i have to go play twister. The most dangerous thing ive done today was give a four year old craneberry juice at breakfast, to say the least i have laundry to do.

Christmas is so soon! I have all my presents almost done which is a good thing ( i still have to find my sisters, but if worst comes to worst i will give her money for boxing day). Anyways Joseph/ Kara's party on Friday was good, the guestlist was totally random though which made it interesting.Jax was pretty hammered and somehow called our coach making a fool of herself (haha oh jacquie we have to live this one down tomorrow) however he seemed to think it was pretty funny. One of the highlights of my night was when sylvia got in the middle of a cake fight and came out completely covered in chocolate cake; i later came downstairs to witness sylvia asking everyone to lick it off of her face ( including most of the strangers in the room).The next morning me and jax were not feeling up to going to morning practice so we called and ditched which i feel really bad about because i havent been to practice in a while, and he makes the time for us and we dont for him :S Anyways i spent the morning fighting with Eric Elliot then came home to nurse a hangover, decorate my Christmas tree, and watch movies on Turner Classic's.

car went crash [12 Dec 2005|03:08pm]
Hey! I never post in here anymore so sorry!Anyways i will try and post more often for ppl who don't see me as often ( mainly tess and shelly lol). Yesterday i got in my first car accident ( yup it runs in my blood too tess). I was making a left hand turn at Capilano and Ridgewood near Grouse Mountain and another car was speeding and ran through the intersection and hit my passenger side; the window blew in and the door is totally smashed.The police, ambulance, and firetruck's all came which was kinda exciting and i just stood there crying for a good half an hour while they marked lines and asked me questions, everyone was totally nice but it still makes you feel like shit even if it wasnt my fault. Nobody got charged with anything (not even the guy the hit me which is kinda and bummer but at least nobody was hurt) and i have to go to ICBC on wednesday to see how much im going to have to pay for insurance and all that crap. Other than a few scrapes and bruised ribs im fine. In other news, Melissa and Ron were both here this past week so i visited with them and went out for dinners and all that fun stuff. I am still rowing, right now we are in winter training which means about 6 of us go to the boathouse three times a week ( 6 am tomorrow:p) and Kelsey coaches us on the ergs ( rowing machines).....Anyways im totally bored , im waiting during my D block spare for Kim to drive me home when her math class is over and there isnt much too do lol.Tess i'll phone you one of these days about Christmas!

love and apple juice,

row row row your boat as fast as you possibly can! [15 Sep 2005|07:55pm]
I just got back from rowing practice. Jozef and Robin both made it which i was totally excited about. It was a good practice did 500 meters in 2;12 which actually really sucks for me but its only first practice. So far my coach Marge is pretty nice and she was laughing at all my facial expressions when she said i had to help novices and teach. Robin really liked it which was good, afterwards we ran up to Honeys and bought food ( unfortunately Robin and Jozef wanted doughnuts which meant i couldnt pop in and say hello to the lady that works at the deli who gives jax and i free food, what a cutie)School is going great , except having to do rowing budget with mr.liu and mr.soper every freakin second that jax and i are free. Anyways , that was a totally pointless post but im always super talkative after rowing.....actually make that everything. shelly phone me and we will do the grind!

Homework sucks ass [12 Sep 2005|07:33pm]
As always i am doing almost anything humanly possible to get away from my bio-chemistry and math hwk. I actually have nothing to talk about but i just really do not want to even look at my ugly math hwk, and anyways i do have a three hour spare tomorrow that i can do it in.... right? So recently ive begun talking to Eric....I know random but he seems to be a nice guy, remember when everyone painted his arms green so he would resemble the hulk? I think on Friday before schooland on my spare first block im gunna head down to spanish banks with my cousin and do some skimboarding if i can find a ride your all welcome to come.Hopefully i will not pop my knee cap out and have enough time on the way home to pop into Zulu to see if they have the "Learning How to Die" wilco doc. because i NEED NEED NEED it. I miss Victoria, who's up for another trip??

everyone needs a little metal [11 Sep 2005|03:18pm]
Sam and i decided to check out Fear Factory one of Kaleb's favorite band on Friday. Luckily we got free tickets from Tom Blair so we didnt have to pay the 55 bucks they were going for. This concert was definately different, to say the least the majority of the audience were over 25 and had waist length hair.Oh metal.....Anyways the rest of the weekend has been pretty lax went to my cousins added more stuff to our surf film, drove around with my dad ( working on my amazing three point turn skills) and went to my yacht club to have lunch with my orthodentist and his wife. It's sunny out and i feel like such a lazy ass for sitting inside. We have to have another poker night!
