9:25 pm - lip service, that's all you'll ever get from me
such a beautiful day today! like, no-jacket weather! jeff and i went on a bursary-sponsored lunch-date to curry village. delicious delicious flatbread and butter chicken and red-curry shrimp with peppers. mmm mmm. and i went to y's buys and got a cute dress with daisies and a sweet vintage cardigan. and we're off to toronto tomorrow night to see of montreal, exciting! my back and chest are already so sore from shovelling snow/coughing tho, i imagine after bussing and wandering TO and going to the show and crashing on the couch (floor?) at ian's and bussing again i am going to be quite unhappy. |
2hr. presentation on fri. ugh. my group members are blonde. really blonde. paper due on tues. scary. and then two more papers. and then exams (12th and 24th of april). and then moving and playing house, and canoeing with my family, and summer camp!
magda is moving out from my parents house. i'm kind of sad. i enjoyed her living with us, but she's kind of...turned into a different person, and not really a nice one. she fights with my family, esp. my dad. i can't help but take their side. she doesn't pay for rent/food, but she doesn't help out much. she keeps adopting pets and then neglecting them (guinea pig, bunny, fishies) and expecting my parents (or me) to take care of them. meh.
current mood: chipper

one. found a job for the summer (actually just got re-hired for the same job as last summer). totally pumped about going back to camp. still have to send in my contract and criminal record check. but seems that i’m employed.
two. helped my dad start organizing a canoe trip/cookout thing for may...my family is going, and jeff, my aunt and uncle and cousins, and various childhood friends of my dad and their offspring.
three. went to see dr. nugent, got rid of the effexor for another med which is supposed to be more ‘energizing,’ seems ok so far.
four. saw lots of people that i have been meaning to see!
five. finished my bookshelf project (mostly, it needs to be varathaned) and started some new things...one of which is a scarf, yay.
one. my guinea pig and dogs died. my parents are depressed over the dogs. i don’t know what to do to help. i think i might enlist my dad in getting mum a puppy to live inside...maybe for christmas?
two. got really sick over reading break, went home and slept mostly when i really wanted to visit and frolic and be helpful to my mum. still have a bad cough.
three. skipped a counseling appt. that i really should have gone to. yeah.

there is nothing more endearing than a half-asleep kiss in the middle of the night. ahh, being sappy is so cliche, but i'm over it. |
i watched half nelson last night. i liked it, although it was slow and full of way too much broken social scene. i like ryan gosling. i liked him before he was cool. breaker high? i say yes!
i watched an nfb documentary from sometime around 1965 about leonard cohen (in his pre-musician days). i never realized that he was bubbly and full of joy in his twenties. listening to him do readings makes me want to find more of his poetry. it's difficult to gather the motivation to analyze a work when the writer himself has such a disdain for literature in academia:
"people sitting around in small classrooms, their hands bloody with commas. they get older and the ages of the poets remain the same, twenty-three, twenty-five, nineteen."
