If you had asked me before I started at UBC, I would have been appalled at the thought of being hooked on a TV show. Well, I’m just going to eat my words now. I’ve gone through quite a few shows so far, especially in the past year, since last summer to be exact. During my term in summer school I was obsessed with the show Awkward, and now, NOW, I’ve moved onto Greek. It’s a show that revolves around the Greek system of a US university. I didn’t think I’d get into it since my friend had gone crazy over it during my Awkward obsession…but I started watching it last night and I’m already 8 episodes in, ~44 minutes each. UGH. I guess that’s what summer is for, right? To waste away your time with TV shows that you wouldn’t normally have the time to watch during the school year. If you decide to start watching Greek because of me – I’m sorry and you’re welcome. 😉
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 😉
There went the break, and here came classes. I already feel like I’m long overdue another break…yes, after a day of classes, I’m done. 😛 I doubt that’s a good sign. The best about today was the fact that it was really sunny despite the fact that they forecasted rain. I don’t really understand where the time goes these days. There are three days left in February. Why did they have to stick in a short month 😥 In two months, I’ll be done with my finals, does that thought scare me? Yes, just a wee bit. I’m not ready to go into third year, I was barely ready for second year. Don’t even get me started when I’m almost in fourth year, that’s just too much crazy all in one thought process. Now that classes are back in session, I’m forced to actually “study”, unless I want to bomb all my midterms(sorry, not an option). Also, sidenote, the Oscars…I’m still feeling a little uneasy with the whole awkwardness of Kristen Stewart and Daniel Radcliffe…well mainly K. Stewart… was she okay? She just seemed completely out of it, and very disinterested and just strange…it was almost painful watching her. Maybe she doesn’t do well in front of large crowds..? Yeah, that’s it. And Jennifer Lawrence, she handled herself quite well(no sarcasm), she’s one of those actresses that convinces you that Hollywood actresses are actually normal people, like you and me. I KNEW Hollywood was calling my name…but no, I’m at UBC. Ohh well.
Now that’s enough with procrastinating. As if a week of it wasn’t enough. Procrasti-NATION. Population: Me.
I’m a little late but Happy/Merry Christmahanukwanzadan – Ramadan, Hanukkah, and Christmas are all over…and I think it’s Kwanzaa right now..? Regardless, I hope everyone had/is having a great holiday season! I finally got that white Christmas that I had been dreaming of… SO HAPPY!
I would say this holiday season has been rather successful, super stuffed from all the food, in the process of catching up with all the shows that I’ve been deprived of for the past 4 months, all caught up on my sleep(this one’s super important), spending quality time with the famjam, spent way too much money, and of course, all my laundry is done. 😀
Classes start in 5 days… #whysosoonUBC
I would love to put on a fit about how early we’re going back…but I’m too mature for that(or at least I’d like to think I am). 😛 There is currently a giant wasp in my room, flying into the window, ‘cuz wasps are sooo smart. -.- I hate wasps. Overall, this break has been super awesome with a fair amount of snow and wintery feels. I feel like I could go on about how I can’t believe that 2012 is almost over, and how second term is almost starting and yaddy yaddy yada, but I won’t.
Random fact of the day: A newly discovered comet is headed our way and it may be 15 times brighter than the moon. whoa whoa whoa. It’s currently located somewhere near the orbit of Jupiter and once it gets to Mars it will start to shine and a bunch of the gases will become expelled and that will result in a streaky appearance. Be excited.
Raincouver is back in action. It’s been raining for the past 3 days. And I’m sick. It sucks. 😦
Also. I thought this [there used to be a video, but the uploader took it down] was pretty cool, they were filming on campus for a new show called Emily Owens, M.D. …unfortunately, I’m pretty lame and never ever saw them actually filming…which blows my mind since I’m almost always usually around that area…So yeah.. the only locations I could really pick out were Irving and the Life Sciences Centre. I actually think I want to watch this show….BECAUSE I HAVE ALL THE TIME IN THE WORLD TO. NAWT.
ACCOMPLISHMENT OF THE DAY – I figured out how to work the thermostat in my room…so now my room doesn’t feel like a fridge anymore. SUCCESS.
Hello all. Hope your Holiday festivities were great, I sure enjoyed mine! I wanted to make a post on Christmas Eve, and on Christmas day, but that obviously didn’t happen.. Last night we went to our friend’s house for Christmas dinner, and it was divine! We went to a party at another friend’s house on the 23rd, and it was great, so many people, but it was great. I’m not taking part in any ‘Boxing Day’ ‘festivities’ – keeping it pretty low key today. Debating on dying/streaking my hair actually, you know, starting fresh for the new year/second term. I don’t know, we’ll see.
I’ve been thinking a lot lately, about many things, because I actually have time to think, unlike during school, too much non academic thinking can lead me astray from my studies (ha-ha). Just the other day I was thinking how ‘un-Christmas-y’ university was….like I mean, I’m used to being in school where Christmas is greatly celebrated, and where we do Christmas related things, like food drives for the Salvation Army and making a school event out of making sculptures with all the cans we collected and stuff like that. My class had such a competitive nature about can collecting, we always tried to collect more cans than the rest of the classes, which is technically a win-win situation for our class and the people that need all the food. It was always so much fun going door to door with friends, asking for donations of food items, and all the interesting people we’d encounter. Like last year, we went to this one house and the lady asked us to step inside (which we were quite hesitant on doing, but she insisted) and her whole house was covered with wall mountings of OWLS! It was the WEIRDEST thing….some intense owl fetish going on there. And more things I missed: Christmas songs on the radio in the car and the hustle and bustle of people at the mall…exams really took away from enjoying the season to the best of my ability…needless to say, I still enjoyed it VERY MUCH!
I am alas up to date with ‘2 Broke Girls’ – watched all 12 episodes that have aired so far, and now the 13th one airs on January 2nd….siighh…I’m hooked. As much as I love being at home with family, I still miss people from UBC, I can’t wait to go back to residence and see everyone again! And new classes starting, that’s going to be weird not seeing the same people again. But thankfully, I know at least one person in each of my new classes 😀 . I’m hoping that second semester goes by SUPER SLOWLY…I need to thoroughly cherish every up and down that I come across along the way – mainly the ups, but the downs also apparently shape who I am? Sooooo. 😛
Another thing I’m enjoying, leisure reading! 😀 I love Sarah Dessen, I’ve loved her since about 3 or 4 years ago, when I first bought one of her books, and now I have her newest book (new as of the summer), it’s called ‘What Happened to Goodbye’ — and I love it! They make me feel all fluffy and tingly inside….and they make me think about MY life….and how things are going with people…hehe…. (I dislike romance books in general, this is a serious exception). My other favourites by her are ‘ Along for the Ride’ and ‘Lock and Key’. You can never be too old for Sarah Dessen!
“You have the accuracy rate of a magic 8 ball” – Max (2 Broke Girls) <— I can’t get over how much I love that show!!! I ❤ Kat Dennings. Some of her situations in the show really remind me of myself..it’s fantastic.
So it’s December 23rd today, which means that Christmas Eve is tomorrow, and Christmas is in two days. It REALLY doesn’t feel like Christmas, exams definitely took over most of the Christmas spirit….but whatever. I’m still excited for Christmas, and all the dinners and get togethers that come along with it, starting tonight! 😀 A few days ago I got together with a bunch of friends that I graduated with, it was great catching up on things, definitely hard to believe that it’s been over 6 months since I graduated. I feel like Christmas break of grade 12 was really memorable, it was the time when I started to apply to universities and started thinking about my ‘future’. I remember I was extremely set on going to the University of Alberta, and practically researched EVERYTHING about it…but then I realized I would probably freeze to death in Edmonton, and I didn’t really know anyone else, and it’s way too far from home haha. But I’m glad things worked the way they did, I clearly belong at UBC. 🙂 Looking back on the past year, it’s definitely crazy how fast time flies!
I have decided that I have developed a ‘new’ ‘outlook’ on life…as I start second term at UBC….I’m really a ‘positive’ person for the most part…or I was, until November came along..and I got really stressed out and started becoming more ‘negative’ towards things….and I didn’t totally realize it was a big deal until my friends actually told me that I was starting to complain too much about things…and then it hit me….what was wrong with me!? So now I’m going back to good all positive-ness. Second term, fresh start, can’t wait.
