It's Time!

Oooooh Michael Bublé's coming out with a new album. I love him... he's like a young Frank Sinatra with a smooth swingin' voice. Can't wait can't wait! *drool*

Tonight was the first time I played dodge ball since frosh week of 1st year. Super fun, so tiring, massive injuries (Christian's beating me up afterwards didn't help! :P), and a dodge ball nazi who was soooo hardcore. Jeez, it was as if she was training us for dodge ball in the military. Yelling at us for either not playing fast enough or not going to fight for the ball and getting us to shush up whenever we were laughing!! Was is too much to ask to just have a little fun when we play a GAME?

Sweet Childhood Days

This quote is so true: "When you finally go back to your old hometown, you find it wasn't the old home you missed but your childhood". I remember visits back to my old house in Kanata and being so struck by how tiny it looked. As a kid, it seemed like this huge place with an infinite of places to hide. All growed up, it looks like a doll house. Curious how childhood memories are so whimsical... I want my childhood back!

My first section I created for my Exquisite Corpse assignment:

The Most Depressing Day

Apparently January 24th is the worst day of the year. And here's the formula to prove it!

( [W + (D-d)] x TQ ) / ( M x NA )

where (W) weather, (D) debt, (d) monthly salary, (T) time since Christmas, (Q) time since failed quit attempt, (M) low motivational levels and (NA) the need to take action.

No wonder I've been feeling so lethargic today... I slept the late afternoon/early evening away despite having an essay and quiz tomorrow. Oops. Ok back to work.

i love metric

Metric concert last night at the Mod Club was awesome! There was so much enegry on the stage what with Emily Haines' funky dancing and all! They had some technical difficulties with the synthesizer during the show so they started throwing water bottles into the audience while we waited for them to fix it. They played Dead Disco as the last song during which Emily crowd surfed then brought up a bunch of people to dance around on the stage. Wanna see them again, again and again!

So I'm Not Going Over The Hill

If only this were true...

You Are 22 Years Old


Under 12: You are a kid at heart. You still have an optimistic life view - and you look at the world with awe.

13-19: You are a teenager at heart. You question authority and are still trying to find your place in this world.

20-29: You are a twentysomething at heart. You feel excited about what's to come... love, work, and new experiences.

30-39: You are a thirtysomething at heart. You've had a taste of success and true love, but you want more!

40+: You are a mature adult. You've been through most of the ups and downs of life already. Now you get to sit back and relax.

If I Was Rich...

My house would be furnshed with some funked-out designs and colours like these:


This morning I made some yummy Cinnamon French Toast with Maple Syrup for brunch :) Continue reading for the recipe...

Cinnamon French Toast with Maple Syrup

4 eggs
8 slices extra thick sliced cinnamon bread with raisins
1 tbsp butter
pinch of salt
LOTS of 100% pure maple syrup (none of that yucky Aunt Jemima stuff)

In shallow bowl, beat eggs lightly. Add salt.

In larg skillet over medium heat, melt 1 tbsp butter. Dip bread, 1 slice at a time, into egg and let soak for several seconds on each side. Lift out, allowing excess egg to drip back into bowl.

Fry soaked bread for 1 to 2 minutes per side or until golden brown. Add a little more butter to skillet as necessary.

Serve with a huge puddle of maple syrup :)

Makes 4 servings.

School And Ramblings

My last school term EVER is well underway! I finally have all my courses and schedules worked out. With Capstone Design, French, Urban Cities, Integrated Photographic Explorations and Art Internship, this is definitely the most relaxed term of my university life :) What a way to end the 5-year horror. Not to mention the fact that I also no longer have an exam in GGR... so I actually finish school early in April *GASP* I'll have had no exams at all this year, which is quite anti-climatic; I never had the chance to revel in the glory of my very last exam!!

Now that I have to immerse myself in school again, let's go over my to do list I had written for my Christmas break and see where I have failed miserably, shall we...

Christmas Break 2004 To Do List:
  • :: finish Japan scrapbook [FAIL: not even halfway done!!]
  • :: label California pictures
  • :: document fall term art projects [sorta finished- need to do one more]
  • :: build online portfolio section [FAIL: didn't even get to think about it]
  • :: update photography journal and photo albums [FAIL: how did I think I had time for all this?!]
  • :: hang up posters; construct bedside table [bedside table is finished :), posters are in their frames but not on the walls :(]
  • :: start scrapbooking Las Vegas/California trips [FAIL: thinking I would even finish the Japan scrapbook was a freaking joke- how could I start another one??]
  • :: double exposure photography experiment [PASS/FAIL: I ended up with accidental double exposures, does that count?]
  • :: cooking & baking frenzy [wasn't exactly a frenzy, but I did try!]
  • :: catch up on reading [FAIL: the only book I finished was a children's book]
  • :: capstone project [only 'cuz I had to for school]

Score: 3/11 FAIL

Looks like Sandra was so right in thinking I wouldn't get half of this stuff done! *sigh* This is the reason why it pays to be an underachiever- you never disappoint yourself when you don't have any goals to achieve.
