So this list…

Apparently one can learn an incredible amount of information about ‘life’ and themselves in a few short days. Not only does one learn a lot, but one begins to question many things as well.
Numero uno – one thing I cannot stand – liars. 
Numero dos – it rains way too much in Vancouver.
Numero tres – the one day it’s sunny here, I feel like I’m in a completely different city.
Numero cuatro – why do people think that it’s a good idea to use a leaf blower to blow away freshly cut grass from the pavement when it’s pouring out? me no comprendo.
Numero cinco – why do people think that it’s a good idea to pressure wash pavement when it’s pouring out? 
Number six – I’m not Spanish, nor do I know any Spanish
Number seven – I learned that I’m a procrastinator.
Number eight – did I mention that I can’t stand liars? 
Number nine – I should really study for my midterm that I may potentially do very very VERY poorly on,  instead of making this little random bilingual list.
Number ten – apparently you shouldn’t be afraid to be yourself and do what YOU need to do, regardless of what other people may or may not think. ‘cuz a little confidence in yourself, can go a LONG way.
Number eleven – if something doesn’t concern you, don’t bother with it, it’s not worth your time.
Number twelve – don’t worry about it.
Number thirteen – Starbucks Caramel Ribbon Crunch Frapp – heaven. OMG.
Number fourteen – I just made this because I didn’t want to end on thirteen *so not superstitious* 

 

That Time of Year

It’s that time of year when the new batch of first years are over the top anxious about UBC, which results in the views PEAKING on my UBC related pots! WOOOO!!! Congrats on your acceptance and BE SUPER SUPER EXCITED for Fall! If anyone has any questions about coming into UBC, feel free to comment and leave questions, I LOVE questions about UBC 😀 Side note, I’m sick and tired of this rain, MAKE IT STOP.

And to make your life easier, I’ll just link you to the “top” posts regarding UBC in this one post, because I care.

My First Year Experience

School Supplies for University

On A Cloudy Day.

Summer classes begin tomorrow, and as per usual, classes begin, and the rain comes back. WOOOO. But summer school is fun, right? Personally speaking, I don’t really mind the concept of summer school, it’s good to keep your brain going on an intellectual level, right? SURE! But in some ways I wish I could just live at home(my actual home, rather than rez) for summer courses. I guess this puts a damper on my endless hours of catching up on TV shows that I missed out on for the past 8 months… OHH WELL. I thought I’d have something more thought-provoking to say…but apparently I don’t. Anyway, HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY TO ALL THE EXTREMELY AWESOME MOTHERS OUT THERE, including my own, because I can say she’s genuinely the best of them all 😉 

Shattered Feelings

To you I reached out
To give me strength
I said to you, listen
You did and it grew
Growing to what we couldn’t handle
Grasplessly losing control
It gave us pain and caused us hurt
I held my breath
You took it away
Taking me up and taking me down
To new heights and old depths
A never ending cycle
Something all too familiar
Of retreating to the issue and straying from the truth
Shattered hearts and streaming tears
Out of our hands it became
Breaking us down
Pieces crumbled
We fell apart
Then silence.
Silence was the answer
Silence was golden.
