We've restarted this blog group thing. This week there was a choice of two topics. I picked the second.

Describe a time in your life when you had to say goodbye. Was it to a person? A place? A community? Was it easy to say, or hard? Was it a sad farewell, or were you happy to say it?

Hasn't happened yet, but next year I'm going to have to say goodbye to my university friends. It's not going to be a happy time. Especially saying goodbye to [livejournal.com profile] morgie39. We've been together since first year. We were randomly assigned as roommates and now she's one of my best friends. We've lived together for three years and are living together again next year. I expect lots and lots of tears when I have to say goodbye to her after graduation. At least there's still deviantart, where we can keep in contact (as it slowly eats our live). And who knows, maybe we'll end up going to the same grad school, in which case the goodbye at the end of that will be even worse.

Not that I'm not going to miss everyone else. I suspect tears all over, so pack the Kleenex mom!

So, this week's blog topic is "If you had a superpower, what would it be?" This was a really easy topic for me. Shapeshifting. I mean, that would pretty much let you do anything. Wanna fly? Turn into a bird. Wanna be invisible? Turn into something small. Super strength? An elephant. Speed? Cheetah. The list goes on. Plus, you'd always have the ultimate Halloween costume.

The only other power I'd want would be telepathy. That's the power I gave one of my characters in a story I'm working on. She doesn't use it very often, and really, it ends up getting her into a lot of trouble, but it'd still be cool. Just think. If someone was really annoying, you could just give them a little mental push and poof! Away goes the annoying person. Or if you were in a test and just completely blanked? Well, maybe someone else is on the same question and knows the answer. Not that I'd ever use my powers to cheat! Not me. Of course not...okay, so I'm a horrible person. So what?

What are you planning on doing this summer/what are you most looking forward to doing?

This summer I'm planning on working. That's it. Nothing more. Just work. Yeah.

Hopefully I'll get a chance to go up to Animethon in Edmonton, but I'm not hoping for much. My boss is going to be leaving the week before that, so I probably won't get the weekend off. It'd be nice if I did though. I missed Otafest this year and last year, Animethon last year, Anime North and another convention in Toronto. So I'm going through convention withdrawal.

But yeah. Other than that, I'm not doing much.Right now I'm most looking forward to going back to school, since then I won't have to work.

This week in the blog group the topic was “WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO BEFORE YOU DIE?  Based on a book I read about a girls unfinished life list when she died in an auto accident.”

I don’t really know what I want to do. Sure, there’s the standard. I want to get a good job, find a man, marry, have a kid. Other than that, I don’t really have any big goals.

I don’t really have any huge desire to go anywhere. I’m not like those people who want to see the Grand Canyon or something before they die. I don’t really care. Sure, I’d like to go to Japan, but I don’t really have any burning desire to go there.

I don’t have anyone I want to meet before I die. Sure, I’d love to meet some of my favourite voice actors, but if I don’t, I don’t really care.

I don’t want to play on a famous sport field, or go on an adventure or anything. I’m quite happy hanging out at home on my computer or spending time with my friends watching movies.

I guess the closest thing I have to a last wish is to finish a novel. I have about five started and I’d love to finish one. Just one. I’d be happy with just that. But even then, I don’t think I would be heartbroken if I was told I was going to die and I could finish writing. I like keeping my ideas to myself. In my head they can’t be criticised. No one can say that they’re bad or stupid or that I shouldn’t be writing. I’m not sure that I want to open them up to that.

So, I guess I’m just boring. I have no great aspirations or anything. I just want to enjoy life while I can and not worry about what I have to do before I die. I’d rather focus on the present than worry about the future. And sure, I do worry. But not in terms of “I’m going to die, what am I going to do?” but in terms of, what do I want to do with my life? Instead of thinking I’m going to die soon, I’d rather think that I’m going to live. There are tons of things I want to do while I’m alive, but nothing that I’d hate not being able to do. I guess I’m just not very driven.

IF I COULD STEP INTO THE LIFE OF ANY FICTIONAL CHARACTER (BOOK, MOVIE, TV) I WOULD CHOOSE ____________ BECAUSE __________.

Man, it had to be a hard topic this week. I don’t really know who I’d want to be. I guess I’d have to pick Kairi from Kingdom Hearts. Sure, she spends most of the first game asleep, but she’s kickass in the second. She doesn’t let people push her around and, once she’s given a small push, she doesn’t sit passively by and wait for Sora and Riku to come to her. She plunges right into the darkness to find them herself. Not only that, but when she does find them she doesn’t just sit back and let them save the day. She goes and helps them. She even has her own keyblade! This isn’t a damsel in distress. Kairi can take care of herself and look out for others. She’s the one who saves Sora in the first game. If she wasn’t there, he’d still be wandering around as a Heartless.

Aside from her personality, I’d love to be Kairi because, well, have you seen the guys she hangs out with? Hawt! And she’s not half bad either. I’d kill to have her body (or at least the real life equivalent of it) and be able to do all the climbing and running she does. Plus, she’s a princess (of heart). How cool is that?

I’d also really like to travel through the Disney worlds. I mean, who doesn’t want to meet the real Mickey Mouse? Especially the kick ass Mickey of Kingdom Hearts. The mouse is feisty! I wouldn't want to mess with him.

Okay, not really. But I was linked to this article on how a zombie apocalypse could actually happen and I'm getting ready. It was a really interesting read, if a little freaky.

So, okay, really. What am I doing? That was the topic for this week's blog group. My answer is so boring. I'm working. Working, working, working. Curse my desire for further education. So, yeah. Working to earn money for school. I haven't applied anywhere yet, but I'm looking. So far I haven't found a lot, but I've only been looking online. I'm sure that if I actually went out to a physical store I'd find tons of positions open.

So....................yeah. I've got nothing. That's the extent of what's going on in my life. Hopefully I'll get around to working my piece for the creative writing group (so far behind!) and maybe I'll actually go out and do something useful. Volunteer or something. Maybe.

Yeah.

Bye.

So, I had three essays due this week. Two today and one yesterday. I actually managed to start working on them early and got them all done on time. SOC307 (Delinquency) went great. No outside research needed, interesting topic, short. I loved it. PSY321 (Cross-cultural psych) went okay. Research finished early, interesting topic, a bit confusing, but overall okay. PSY360 (Operant and classical conditioning) on the other hand...not so fun.


Yeah...that was fun. Not. But, now I'm done and I get a break until my first exam on the 18th. Phew.

And now the blog group thing. The topic was to choose a city in a country other than your own, and tell why you'd like to visit it. I'm picking...London, England and Tokyo, Japan. I know, that's two. But I can't decide.


So, yeah. That's where I'd like to go and why. Hopefully I'll actually get there sometime soon. Daddy? Wanna pay for it?

This is the latest topic for the blog-group-thing. We were asked to write about what we like about ourselves. So here we go. A list of 10 things I like about myself.


  1. I may have a temper, but I don’t let it control me. Sure, I get pissed off at people, but I don’t say anything to their face. Instead, I go home and vent to my stuffed animals.
  2. I might actually have a future in writing, if what my professor says is anything to go by.
  3. I may be fat, but I’m working to change it and, according to my roommate, it’s working.
  4. I’m a good photographer and photomanipulator.
  5. I’m at the point in my schooling where I can have intelligent conversations about my field. I spent half an hour talking to a friend just about what I was learning in class. And I could actually answer her questions.
  6. I make cynicism and sarcasm cool.
  7. I’m living on my own and, despite some money problems, I’m managing okay. I haven’t killed any roommates (not for lack of desire though), I haven’t burned down the house (though the smoke detector thinks I have), I haven’t had any infestations (beyond normal, living-in-a-forest bugs) and I’m still passing university (barely in some classes, but by God I’m passing).
  8. I’m finally over my fear of spiders. If I’d known I only had to kill 100 of them to get over it, I would have done it a long time ago.
  9. I’m a good and dutiful child. I call my grandma and aunt fairly often to check up on them. I go out to dinner/lunch with them when I’m home. And I never complain about it at all.
  10. I radiate joy. ..........................okay. Inside joke.

Okay, so it seems that I might now actually have people reading this, so I'm going to try to update more often. So, the topic that I was given for today is "Strangest Vacation".

I'm not really sure if I've had a strangest vacation. I've been to Disney (land and World), Mexico, Dominican, Cuba, New Orleans, England, plus a lot of places around Canada.One of the most exciting would, of course, be England. It was so exciting that it got to have a whole story written about one incident (seen here). After that, I guess it would be going to Churchill, Manitoba, to see the polar bears.

Churchill was odd just because, dude, POLAR BEARS!!!! We went out in this huge tundra buggy and drove around all day. We saw foxes and birds-of-some-sort and creatures-I-can't-remember-the-names-of and then, finally, the polar bears. A mother and a baby. So very cute. They came right up to our buggy and sniffed around the tires and posed very prettily for us. Eventually they wandered away and we drove on. 15 minutes later we stopped. Turns out baby!polar bear had chewed up some of the machinery in the tires. Actually, he ate it. That's right. ATE IT!!! So, we had to wait for a rescue buggy to come and, well, rescue us. All in all it was a great trip. But I will never forget the baby polar bear that ate our tires and almost got us stranded in the tundra.

Anyway, for anyone who cares and didn't find this through the blog-group-thing, the list of everyone involved is on the left at the bottom of the list-o-things
