Anybody still out there?

Good grief, it's been almost three years.

I've bought a ridiculous amount of shoes as of late. Three pairs in one and a half days. I swear, I have an obsession with purchasing shoes, coats, and purses; it's so bad that I'd put my bank account into overdraft just so I could have a new new coat or a purse or a pair of shoes that I saw on the shelf and fell in love with. All three are ballerina flats, I ADORE BALLERINA FLATS! All are from, a brand that definitely rocks my face off.

The Leafs absolutely raped the Sabres tonight. It was amazing, AMAZING, dammit! If only they were in the playoffs for sure. It could still happen, but... meh. Probably not.

Daylight savings time is my arch nemesis. Tomorrow will stink a whole lot because of this.

Time:11:31 pm.
Mood: confused.
I have a strange tendency to go through spurts of approximately a year, or two, or sometimes even three, where I have a strong desire towards writing journal entries that describe even the must mudane, simple details of my life. Then, something happens, and that desire dies down. Usually, when that desire dies, other internet-related ones burn out as well. Example: I rarely go on MSN or AIM anymore. I have no desire to have conversations. If I didn't know better, I'd swear I had no desire to have friends. It's not true, really, at least, I don't think it is. I just go through these periods of wanting to be anti-social, and it's not the fault of anybody but myself.

I've had a few weblogs in the past, that were constantly updated every day, and suddenly, I just stopped caring about them and let them rot away in cyberspace. It's bizzare that it happens almost at random, with no sort of warning. I can't understand it. All I know is that I lose all desire to write about my life, and I feel that there's really nobody who cares to read about it anyway.

I've been reading a lot. I love learning, though I must admit that I'm partial to the courses I'm taking in university at the moment. It feels like some sort of token, common third-year slump. I know a lot of people who up and dropped all their courses this semester because they felt like they needed a break; they felt like school was suffocating them. I feel that way too, but since the term is over in less than a month, I don't feel that doing this would be wise. I go to class, I do my assignments and I get high enough grades on them, but I don't care. I have no passion for the things I'm learning, if it's safe to even CALL it "learning", for a lot of the subject material seems to consist of concepts and ideas I've learned in the past. Geography is choking me to death with it's long, bony fingers of repetitiveness and triviality. I need a change, dammit. I knew it was a bad idea to take geography courses and ONLY geography courses. It's my major, and I love it, but I need some variety, one that isn't so slight, ie, variety in the sense of taking transportation geography and social geography, but taking a course in geography and another in, say, history.

I've always found it funny when people who claim they always wanted me as a friend and to be a part of their life become almost like a complete stranger to me. I wouldn't call it upsetting, nor would I call it strange, but rather, it's funny, as I've already said, but in a sort of dissapointing way.

I've also always found it funny when those same people used to chasitize me for something in the past that they are now currently doing in the present, and will more than likely still continue to do in the future. People change, I know. But still, it's perplexing how some people can change so dramatically. It's also perplexing how they can forget.

I'm out for now; maybe for a day, a week, or even months. Who am I to say?

Another notoriously standard 'what I got for Christmas' list, in photo form...Collapse )

Twas a good Christmas. I cleaned up well, I did.

Unfortunately, my bank account is low and my credit card bill is through the roof. I bought lots for everyone, so I guess the 'cleaning up' went both ways. Bah. Here's to working my ass off in January just to pay it all off!

Time:2:03 pm.
Mood: tired.
I'm exhausted. I had a horrible sleep last night and wish I could go for a nap right now, but I have to leave for work soon. It's always like that: when I can't nap, I want to nap, and when I don't want to nap, I can. Sigh, such is life, I suppose.

Ben and I exchanged Christmas presents last night; I got beautiful diamond stud earrings! YAY! I'll post some pictures soon. I'm so spoiled! :D

On Sunday I wiped out good on the ice; I somehow fell backwards so that my bum and elbows smacked down on the ice, bounced up and then hit the ice again. It hurt like a bitch and I'm still smarting from it. It happened only twenty minutes into our practice, too, meaning I had to suffer through two and a half hours in pain. I didn't want to leave because I'd missed enough as is being sick.

Stephen and I went shopping yesterday to finish our Christmas shopping. I'm done, finally done! I love that feeling, now all that's left to do is wrap some stuff and then devour it all on Christmas morning. We have a HUGE haul of presents under our family tree, probably more than I've ever seen. It's pretty wild. Again, I'll post pictures soon.

I'm off to shower for work, maybe it'll wake me up.

Subject:El weekendo.
Time:2:36 pm.
Mood: cheerful.
Last night after work I went with the girls to this 24-hour restaurant called Perkins in St. Catharines that serves 24-hour breakfast. I ate like a horse and didn't get sick and had a lovely time. I love hanging out with my work friends, they make me howl so hard. It feels good to have a quasi social group. I'm thinking I'll drag Ben to that restaurant soon because the food is great and not that pricey, either. I'm surprised we've never been before.

Ben and I are hanging out on Monday, we're going to go for dinner and he wants to exchange Christmas gifts but I don't want to yet because it feels so early! I'd rather wait until Christmas Eve. We haven't hung out much this month because of my illness but now that I'm healthy and school is done, we should have lots of time to do so.

I finished my Christmas shopping yesterday; momma and I went to Mapleview in Burlington and I spent a FORTUNE. My credit card bill is going to be SO high, and I cringe just thinking about it because I have absolutely no money in the bank. This time of year sucks in that retrospect. I had so much money in November, but then I got sick and didn't get a good paycheque for a while, so I had to spend my savings on Christmas gifts, and THEN some. I'm almost afraid to log into my bank account online and see how much money I have, or rather, in my case, the money I DON'T have.

In other news, I got a guinea pig back in November! Her name is Missy and she's white with pink ears and a bit of brown on her tummy. She's adorable, even though she eats and craps a whole lot, though I guess that's obvious, eating causes crapping, haha. I am SO attractive, hear me roar.

I'm going skating tonight! I'm so happy. I can't wait, even though I know it's going to exhaust me. I'm still pretty weak; I lost ten pounds over the course of being sick because I was throwing up so much, and despite my recent activity of eating like a horse, I've yet to gain it back, and I want it back, dammit. I don't want to look like I have an eating disorder. I should move my current eating habits up to a new level: from eating like a horse to eating like a full-grown elephant. Weight gain, commence!

Subject:Service Pack 2?
Time:12:57 am.
Mood: confused.
Oh, one other thing before I go to bed; I'm installing the Windows XP service pack on my new computer, and I've heard bad things about it from other sources. Have any of you installed it, and if so, what are your opinons? Is it as bad as I've heard it is? I hope it doesn't muck up my computer, I'd scream if I had to lose all my files AGAIN. I never got around to installing it on my old laptop, because it had been out of control even before the service pack came out and I stopped installing updates because of that, so we'll see.

I'm mailing my (very small pile of) Christmas cards tomorrow! Though they won't go out until Monday, but that's cool. Hopefully at least SOME people will get them before Christmas, but I suppose it doesn't matter, for it's the thought that counts, right?

Anyways, I'm gone now, for real this time.

Subject:The past 16 days.
Time:12:38 am.
Mood: calm.
Alrighty, it's story time! FINALLY, yo! It has been practically demanded that I fill everyone in, so I'm expecting at LEAST thirty comments from everyone telling me how much they love me and want me to update more, because I want to feel special like that.

Thursday the 1st was a long day; I went into school for 8:00 so I could get together with the girls I was working with for a group project in 3P53 community development. We meet in the library, I bring my laptop and we sit down to edit the essay via putting it all together; there were four major sections and four of us, so we just divided it up, one section per girl, and then compiled, but of course it's a lot harder than just cutting and pasting everything into a word document; we had to edit our vocabulary so it all flowed and sounded like one full document, not one that was divided up into sections written by totally different people. That took a good six hours, with lunch, snack and washroom breaks, of course. I was scheduled to work at 4 o'clock so everything was running on time. I arrive at work and everything is fine for the first little while, just another typical Thursday evening at Harvey's. It was around 9:15 when I started to feel these really sharp pains in the front of my stomach that would shoot up my back, constantly throbbing and barely giving myself time to breathe. I cried out and sat down, thinking it was just bad period cramps, and eventually went to the washroom. The pain continued to build and build in intensity, and it got to the point where I literally lying on the dirty bathroom floor, crying and clutching my stomach in agony. My coworkers were all stupid and did nothing, I think they just thought I was throwing up or having the runs or something typical like that, so nobody freaked out, even though there were moments when I was screaming like a banshee.

About an hour or so later, the pain stopped completely, so I cleaned myself off and actually went back to work until 11:30, the typical time to leave after everything's been closed and cleaned up. I drove home, and just as I was getting off the highway the pain started again, this time even more worse than before, so instead of going up the mountain to home I headed to the hospital. I was there for almost four hours in what I would deem the worst medical experience of my life.

In the end I was diagnosed with having a bladder infection, along with two kidney stones to boot. I was given painkillers and antibiotics and told to rest for at least a week and wait for the stones to pass. The resting period ended up being almost two weeks, meaning I missed work and had to hand in all my final essays with a doctor's note. It was a horrible two weeks of throwing up nearly everything I ate whilst in constant pain; the painkillers did nothing but sedate me. It was awful, and I wouldn't wish the experience on my worst enemy. Apparently the pain is worse than childbirth, so now I'm ready for anything! Bring it on! Or not. I'd really rather not.

I went back to work today and took my 3P74 final on Wednesday night, and then handed in my two take home exams this afternoon. I'm officially done for the semester and I can't believe I survived. I always, ALWAYS manage to get sick at the worst possible times. I could have probably gotten extensions for the exams but I just wanted to get them done and over with, and I did, so now I can have a worry free holiday, one that's hopefully pain free to boot.

Mom and I are going to Burlington to shop tomorrow morning, and then I have to work again at night. Now that I'm healthy and without school to worry about, I can finally focus on the holidays. I love it! I'm going to sit on my ass as much as I possibly can. I asked for a lot of DVD sets from my family, so I'll be in front of the boob tube with a carton of ice cream and bottle of coke as much as I possibly can get away with. I deserve to eat junk food and I deserve to do nothing! I'm going back to skating on Sunday and I'm super excited about that, I've missed everyone, and our first competition is quickly approaching; only a few weeks away in January! I'm going to have the biggest crowd of cheering supporters. It'll be great.

Anywho, I must hit the sack, as I have a busy day tomorrow.

Now, show me the love!

All I have to say right now is that I'm DONE EVERYTHING FOR THIS SEMESTER! WOO HOO! EAT IT, GEOGRAPHY DEPARTMENT! These upcoming two weeks will be the most unproductive ones I've had in a long time, and I'm totally looking forward to it. I'm going to sit on my ass and feel it grow fatter. FATTER, dammit!

Now, it's off to work, my first time there since the 1st of the month. There's a long story behind that, but hopefully I'll write all about it as soon as I possibly can. The bitch is back, kiddies.

Time:10:57 pm.
Mood: giddy.
I'm such an airhead. For the past few days, I've been wondering why almost nobody on my friends list has made any posts, and then I realized I wasn't even logged in to livejournal to begin with. Everyone WAS posting, but just in friends-only mode. D'oh. Now I have a fair bit of catching up to do. I read all my friends' journals religiously, so don't think that because I rarely update or comment I don't care, because I do. I'm just busy; token excuse, I know, but it's the truth. I'd be totally upset if someone was to delete me from their lists because I don't write very often. In summary, everybody, just know that I care.

My computer pretty much kicked the bucket, but I've ordered myself a new one, and as a bonus, it comes with a free HP laser printer! SCORE! If I wasn't an HP, I probably wouldn't have bothered because any printer that isn't an HP bugs the crap out of me, but thankfully, it was a HP, so I got a good deal. They should be arriving either tomorrow or Tuesday and I can't wait. I've been using the family computer for the past few weeks, and sharing with my brother gets to be a pain.

Things have slowed down at work, and I'm not getting the overload of shifts I was getting weeks ago, and to that, I say "thank goodness!". My priorities seem to be falling into place, and I'm not stressed or strapped for time... well, most of the time I'm not. I can't believe there are only three more weeks left until the end of the term. Before that time comes, I WILL be stressed, because I have four essays due the week of December 5th. Shudder. Crunch time sucks, but when it's over, it's very satisfactory to know I survived.

Did I mention it's my 22nd birthday tomorrow? No? Well, it is. :D I already got my present from Ben this past Wednesday, a beautiful gold locket. He remembered when I told him a long time ago that I wanted one, because he's a good, nice and thoughtful boy like that. I have no idea what I'll get from my parents, but we'll see. It sucks though because I'm in school from 12-9 and won't get any time to celebrate. Ah well. I never have exciting birthdays anyway, though I love the feeling I get on my birthday: it's my day.

We had a really good practice at skating tonight. I feel more comfortable with the team than I've ever felt before, and it's wonderful. Our first competition is in January and I know we'll do our best and then some. I love the thrill of being on the ice; the rush of competiting. I've missed it terribly and can't wait to do it again this winter.

I'd better head to bed; I have a long, yet fufilling day ahead of me tomorrow.

Time:11:54 pm.
Mood: sad.
Princess the hamster is dead. :(

I came home from work just fifteen minutes ago and went downstairs to check on the three hamsters, and she was lying all funny on the side of her cage, not breathing.

I'm so miserable. I can't stop crying. I know she was just a hamster, but that's not really the point. It seems like I have no time for anyone or anything anymore. I haven't been tending to them as much as I should. I haven't been tending to ANYTHING as much as I should because I'm so damn busy. I hate it. I never get a day off anymore. I can never lie in bed for an entire day, without showering or putting on clothes. I'm sick of working and I'm sick of school and I just want to stop going to both of them. Work is a complete disaster these days, everyone's always fighting with me and it's just not fun anymore. The majority of my friends there are either quitting really soon or have already quit, and it's starting to feel like I'm just going into a warzone everytime I'm scheduled to work. School is just stressing me out nonstop, I'm sick of my classes and I don't feel like I'm learning a thing. I was so excited for this year to start, but now I'm just wishing for the term to end.

My computer is also fried and I'm probably going to need to buy a new one, which is something I cannot afford. Ironic, isn't it? I'm always working, yet I never have any money. I spilt some water on the keyboard a few months ago and I'm thinking that's what caused the problem, only lately its finally started to catch up on me.

My parents are flying out to St. John's for Nanny's 85th birthday next week, so Stephen and I will have the house to ourselves. Trouble is, I'll never get to BE in the house, because I'll be at school or work. It sucks. I should have booked the days off, but I can't, because there's nobody else to work for me, hense why all my friends quit and now I'm working like a manic. It's not fair. I still haven't gotten a raise in that dump, either. I bust my ass, stress myself out nonstop, all for minimum wage. Super fucking dooper. Or not. Yeah, I'm going to go with the not.

And now tomorrow I have to burry my hamster.... :(

Subject:Pepsi with lime is better than Coke with lime.
Time:12:11 am.
Mood: busy.
I'm busy. When I'm not at school I'm at work, and when I'm not at work I'm at Ben's house, and when I'm not at Ben's house, I'm skating. It's boring and repetitive, but those four things make me imensely happy: Ben, getting an education in a subject I love, being with my coworkers, and skating on the synchro team, so who can honestly blame me for being busy when I'm enjoying life so much?

Our router was broken for about a week, too, mainly because that's how long it took me to find the time to actually sit down and fix the stupid thing, so for a while I was stuck with dial-up as my only option and I didn't feel like suffering through the annoyance of long waits and slow-loading pages. Everything's fixed now, so I guess I don't have much of an excuse. The internet has been a bore as of late, and I wouldn't consider that too much of a bad thing. That, and I feel like I never have anything interesting to say in here that wouldn't be a complete repeat of something I said in a previous entry.

In summary, I suck. But somehow, we deal with that.

Subject:Happy something!
Time:12:23 am.
Mood: optimistic.
I love school and I'm so happy to be back in class! Granted, I have a crapload of essays and assignments and presentations to do this term, but I'm just so excited to be LEARNING again! My classes are all interesting and I get the feeling I'll learn a ton, and I have pals in all of my seminars, and that never hurts. I have a relatively cheap stack of books to buy, but I'm not up to braving the bookstore lines until AT LEAST another week, but I'll find a way to get by, I always do. Hurray for library copies on reserve!

I'm also really excited about skating. All the girls (and the two boys) on the team are super nice and willing to get to know me, which is a complete change from the snobs I put up with at the WLSC for twelve years, and our program music is so fun and snazzy, I can't wait to finish it so we can practice the entire four-minute number. We got copies of the music to take home on Monday and I've been playing it over and over, getting used to the beats and where the steps we've learned so far take place. I can't wait to compete, especially in Niagara Falls, as I can invite all my friends to come and see us perform!

I feel SO giddy right now, and it's after midnight! I worked all night and for the most part, the restaurant was dead, but for some reason, I still feel majorly happy, even this late at night. YES! It's good to feel good.

Subject:Wake up, wake up on a Saturday night...
Time:8:44 pm.
Mood: bitchy.
I'm home from Peterborough. In all honesty, I had a crappy time and I'm ridiculously glad to be home. I've learned that the majority of people in my program are annoying as hell and immature to boot, and I'm sick of being looked at like I'm a freak because I don't drink, do drugs and party. Sorry kids, but it's definitely not my style. I hate it when people do things just because it's expected of them. "Oh, we're in university, it's what university kids do!" Gee, I didn't realize there was a manual for certain behaviors to follow for certain stages in life, so maybe someone should forward it to me, pronto.

I felt left out and miserable the entire time, and I couldn't wait to get back home. My life seems to consists of constant episodes of feeling like a loner. I'm starting to think Brock needs to form a straight edge club or something like that, though I'm sure anyone who'd join such a club would be a hardcore scene kid, and I'd continue to feel left out because I'm not into that stuff either. What AM I into? I don't even know. Hanging out with Ben, reading, sleeping, skating... Yeah. I'm cool.

Also, I can't find my MP3 player. I'm not sure if I left it at the resort, but either way, I'm pissed. I'll have to call them and/or the geography department to see about that. I don't really care about the player itself, as it was a cheap one without a lot of memory, but rather, I'm just annoyed at myself for actually forgetting it somewhere. Usually I'm not that careless, so I'm dissapointed in my actions. I've been in a daze all week, so that has to account for my stupidity.

I feel like I'm whining. Does anyone even care?

Mood: cranky.
My gums and mouth have healed fairly well, for the most part. Some of the stitches became loose a few days ago and became detatched from the sockets, so I hada not-so-fun evening at work trying to spit them out discretely. They were just like tiny pieces of dental floss, but they felt really awkward, as if I'd had a strand of hair in my mouth. Blecch. All the pain is virtually gone and I'm more than happy about that. I had a really bad day at work on Thursday, as I decided to go completely off the painkillers so I wouldn't end up getting drowsy and falling asleep while driving, and it was a really rotton, painful experience. The whole seven hour shift consisted of me holding back tears of pain. I learned my lesson though and during my Friday shift I took a low dose of my painkillers after arriving at work, and I was fine. I finished up the antibiotic yesterday and stopped taking the rest of the painkillers a week before. I'm still using the prescribed mouthwash though, but that's it. I have a follow-up appointment on the 12th, also known as the first day of school and my first day back to skating in three weeks. It's going to be a long, rough day, that's for sure.

Bens has been gone for the week, he went up north to a friend's cottage for the labour day weekend and is coming back tonight. I've missed him. :( He's been really good to me as of late, taking me to surgery and looking after me directly afterwards, as well as coming up to visit the days afterwards, until he left for his trip. I'm lucky to have him. We've been together for a few days more than two and a half years, and sometimes I don't know what I'd do without him being here for me. Bens, I love you. <3

Early tomorrow morning, I leave for the third year geography department field work trip of death to Peterborough, and I'm definitely not looking forward to it. Stacey and I are going to be roomies at the hotel and seatmates on the bus, but I'm not sure if we'll be in each other's research groups. I'll be back on Saturday night, exhausted and sick of geography work, I'm sure, not to mention repulsed by the sight of my classmates. I'm attempting to pack a suitcase right now but it's proving to be difficult, seeing as most of the stuff I'll be bringing along I'll also need to use tomorrow morning (makeup, hair dryer and straightener, toiletries, my computer, etcetera). Oh well, at least I can pack my clothes. I'm working late tonight too, so I can expect a horrific night of barely no sleep and then being half dead on a packed coach bus for the majority of the following day. Kill me.

Alright, I'm off to finish my meddling. See you all next week!

Mood: drained.
My wisdom teeth surgery was yesterday, and I suppose I can say it went well. Ben drove me to and from the surgeon's office, because he's a nice boy like that. I was scared and nervous, shaking like crazy when I was called into the operating room. I remember the nurses getting me ready and inserting the IV into my arm, and then I was out like a light, and before I knew it, I was awake in the recovery room with gauze stuffed in my frozen mouth. I stayed there with the nurses and Ben for about a half an hour until it was okay for me to go home.

I received a whole wack of prescriptions: painkillers, a high-dose ibuprofen, an antibiotic to stop any chance of infection, and some medicated mouthwash. Right now I'm feeling alright, though last night I suddenly became very stiff and sore all over, but I'm thinking that's just the side effects of the anesthesia. There are dissolvable stitches holding the sockets together where the teeth once were, and they feel very awkward and out of place, and I feel like ripping them out sometimes because they're THAT bothersome.

I had a crappy sleep last night, mainly because I kept waking up in pain and had to retake my medications in order to be able to make the pain stop so I could fall back to sleep. I kept waking up almost every hour on the hour, which was very unpleasant.

The girls from work, lead by Stacey, called last night to make sure I was okay. It's nice having real friends who care! Everybody has been so supportive, and I'm glad. I'm sure I'll be back to my normal self within the next few days. Ah, I can't wait! But for now, it's time to nap.
