3 more days!

I had to ask one of my professors for an extension on a paper. I absolutely hate doing it. But I've got 5 due this week (2 Tuesday, 2 Wednesday and 1 Friday) and there is just no way I can do it and do it well.
I got to see... well hear, Matt Mays and Sam Roberts in concert last night. It was quite good. And we raised alot of money for Habitat. Even had to start turning away coats cause we ran out of room and tags! But still good.
Even better cause one of the group members... possibly my favorite (yes I have favorites) told me he loved. And drove me home. Yes, platonic love but I can wish it was more right?
All right, I should be doing papers right now. I slept until 4 this afternoon (apparently I'm still sick) so I'm going to be up all night now so it's officially time to get to work.

I am amused by the prospect of suicidal deer.

*cough cough*

So I have medicine but I'm still not feeling better. At least when it comes to the cough and the lack of voice. But I'm not complaining cause I'd rather have a cough than a head cold anyday.
Emotionally at this very moment I feel great. I've realized something and it's making most of the things I've been fussing about lately seem like nothing. Which is quite nice to realize.
Wednesday night was trivia night, it was a good time. A and Islander were very very drunk and it was most hilarious at most points. Thursday morning was fun for us who were feeling fine :)
So I've got 4 papers left to do: 1 Tuesday, 2 Wednesday and 1 Friday - tomorrow I'm going to spend my day working on my last 15 pager. Hopefully I can get it done by Monday-ish.
Anyways, I'm gonna go put away some clean laundry and then get some sleep - lata!

So my lack of voice and cough seems to be escalating into major sickness. I've got a nice fever going on and I've been coughing up blood. So because my friends might hurt me if I don't I'm going to make a run to the hospital.
But in good news, my seminar is over and it went very well. Now to finish up 7 papers and 2 exams and the term will finally be over!
Ok. Must go see doctor who can fix me.

library antics

So I'm at the library. Without a voice. Which should make my giving a seminar tomorrow quite interesting. And of course, there are people around me. Let me tell you about a few.

First, there is the man feeding food to his girlfriend.
Then there are the other couple friends who are talking about their grad gifts (A trip to Europe, $10,000 and a new car)
And then there are the three guys talking about women's breasts.

Sometimes I really really wonder.

So it's Sunday...

you know, in case you didn't know.
I'm watching a football game with Jack, while eating the only thing I seem to have in my apartment for food (as I am completely broke) and thinking about my paper.
Yes I am aware that I have been "thinking" about this paper for months now. After Wednesday I will not speak of it again. Until it's published that is. ;)
I want pizza...
Yes there was just a commerical on for pizza. lol.
Ok. Papertime.

So I did a bit of work....about 200 words worth lol. But I put out some Christmas decorations. And cleaned up the apartment.
And now I'm watching a movie.

So I seem to have developed a cough. It hurts.

Ok. I'm sick.
But the movie "The Island" is very good.
LilL is adorable, she's sooo worried about my finances right now - she wants to buy me groceries. I love that my friends love me!

Soooooo it snowed last night. And not just a little snow that'll go away in a couple days. It's here to stay. I think it's gonna be another winter like last year's. I wasn't impressed. Even less impressed by my apartment company and their lack of shoveling and plowing. But I bought boots so hopefully there won't be any broken bones this year!
I met a boy! lol. He gives me butterflies and makes me giggly.
And I may have gone on a date with a woman last night without meaning to. Oops.
Ok. Gotta write a paper so I can do something fun tonight or tomorrow!

Back!! (from nowhere really...)

I have not died. But someone else did so I spent the weekend at home (and it was my Mom's birthday too). Anyways, yeah. Still here. Things just got busy.
In summary:
- I'm now a joint honors student in History and Law in Society - super excited and really not at all bothered by the fact that I won't be graduating this year. My advisor already has plans for me to be doing my masters afterwards.
- Our habitat budget it super low this year - partly due to the fact that we have three personal cars this year.
- My little brother scored his first goal in his five years playing hockey - so proud - so I took him to see Madagascar 2!
- Bought my Mom an expensive wine for her birthday - It was good but so strong - pretty sure I was drunk off a couple sips.
- The library recalled the book I was using for my big paper due on Monday, before I was done with it! I'm a bit stressed now.
- Only two weeks left in the term - but a busy two weeks it will be!

Ok.. I'm supposed to be starting this paper right now. So I should get to it. Tootles!

Am I a horrible person for thinking this is funny?

Embarrassing Moment of the day

I was talking to myself when I was walked into my building this evening. And there was someone else in the lobby. They gave me odd looks. Oops.
My history major is in military history. Ironically I am only taking my military courses this year. It's going to be a very violent year of courses. But super interesting. I'm learning alot of military strategy type stuff too. Which is also interesting. Alrighty, back to the RAF's super horrible bomber command of the early 1940s.

Meet new friends

LilL (also known as L) - littlest and cutest lady I've ever met. She's originally from BC and moved her with her fiance when he started law school. She's an absolute sweetheart. She's well travelled, smart and super kind. She's super little but is a ball of energy. So glad I met her but heartbroken that after this year I'll probably never see her again.
A - recently moved here as well. Also super well travelled. Working on his polisci masters. Can speak several languages. Smart, funny and all around nice guy.

yay for getting gussied up

So I got to dress up last night! Engineers without Borders were hosting a wine and cheese night and I got drug out by Islander and his gf and A (new friend! - but I've got no creative name...)
It was a very good time. Got to buy a dress and feel good. There was wine and we won a martini tasting night in the silent Auction.
We then went to the pub on campus for a bit. Islander's GF and I have hit it off and she's a real sweetheart so we got to know each other while the boys talked politics. Of course.
Ooo but speaking of talking politics. The other day we were out having a few drinks (all my good stories now revolve around alcohol... hmmm) and this friend of Islander's sat down with us and starts ranting about all this stuff which was all really stupid. I sat quietly while Islander, the weird guy and A argued for about 45 minutes. And then I'd had it. I went off on the guy for a good five minutes. I never do that. But it was quite invigorating and I felt very intelligent for once. It's been the talk of everyone for awhile now cause I think I caught everyone a little off guard.
Anywhoo now today I have all afternoon and evening with very little stuff to do so I can get some stuff done. ie. laundry, paper research, and habitat duties.
