So this past weekend Laura came up to visit. Again (so it seems every time i am going somewhere) I had to meet with my film group before heading out to pick her up. This time wasn't as bad as last time as we were in my room this time because our power point project was on my computer. So I met with them first and then headed on the bus and subway to meet Laura at the station. Luckily Ellyn was going to the same place so I had a companion for the ride there. :
So when I got there I needed to call Laura to find out where the Train was. And of course, because I was in such a rush (which wasnt needed sicne I was like 40 minutes early) I forgot my cell phone, the one thing I needed. So i got on the pay phone and called Laura... no answer. Then I tried calling Lesley because she was supposed to meet us down there... no answer... then i caleld laura again... no answer. So I was scrwed. but luckily I was smart and i did all of that on one quarter. This is impressive because I was calling long distance... yuss.
So then I was standing in the lobby waiting for Laura when this girl start running at me. I didn't know who it was because laura wasnt goign to be there for like 25 minutes, but then it was Lesley. She took it on her own to jsut come to the station since she was so smart before about calling me right when she was getting on a subway ;) thats okay lesley, im sure in come places they put telephone poles in the subways. Anways so then we met up with Laura.
So then Lesley, her friend Lisa, Laura and I all went to Eaton Centre to shop for a total of twenty minutes before deciding to go for dinner. We decided upon Swiss Chalet where we were servedby the slwoest person in the world. It took like three hours for our meal, i kid you not.
But we had good company so it was okay.
Then Lesley and Lisa headed back to K-town and Laura and I headed back to York. It was late when we got there so we just met people, hung out with them for a few hours and then called it quits.
The next day we went downtown again where we went shopping for our floor's SUPER HERO PARTY. Thanks to Hailey for always coming up with the funky ideas for cool parties.
We went into all these random stores looking for anyting even remotely costumy. We found nothing. So we headed back empty handed. When we were on the subway I had a what alcoholics call it 'a moment of clarity' where i realized I needed to be the Green Lantern.
Two reasons : 1. I have a lot of green
2. Its the only thing I can think of that wasnt taken and that i could do.
So I made my own costuem while Laura, Lea and Terrance dressed as the power puff girls... Terrance was the hot one, he always is.
So then we drank a little, partied a little, had some good good times.
Then the next day we got up, went for breakfast, and it was time to leave already. It was a fun weekend.

FROSH WEEK, YEAH
Oh man, our Frosh week was so amazing.
We did so many things....
We played condom games
Went to Wonderland
Old Spaghetti Factory
Downtown Toronto in a small group and ran around takings so many random pics, which i will psot when i get them, yuss.
the Docks twice actually, one part one... i dont remember.
We had a stop light sparty, which they really should universatize what colors mean... almsot got into trouble :S.
umm what else.
we had a kick ass carnival, where I ruled at the obstable course.
FOAM PARTY... one guy on our floor went to the hospital though... they're getting goggles next year.
Martin drank a forty in an hour, of crown royal.... hes a tank.
Outdoor movie night which rocked cause it was outside and it was movie. IT was great to watch a movie outside in the fielkd, it was really cold though.
FREE CONCERT where i won a t-shirt and a hat.
Football Game,which we won... go YORK LIONS... why are we lions?
Plus we had a tug of war game at half time... there's a really embarrasing story to go around with it. I don't want to get into it, Lets just say that I stood up to lend my serivces and I was TURNED DOWN with a "its alright buddy, we got this one." Now I may not be the strongest guy but... yeah i got nothing. It was embarrasing.
Then a Boat Cruise to end it all. Was a wicked frosh week.
I could so go into detail into every single one of those stories but that would take way too long. I may go back and touch on some of the best ones later. But in general, I gave you my frosh week that you wanted to read, not a long drawn out version that you all would skip.

My Last night at home
So I know this is way over due but I am going to play catch up, thats all i have to say for an apology. :
So for my last night in town before I was to leave for York I jsut wanted it to be a few close friends, hanging out.
My parents however wanted me to go to some familybarbeque which I said no to obviously. I wasnt going to spend my last day at home at some barbque when i could be out with friends. My dad understood but my mom didnt. I think she was jsut trying to grasp on to that last bit of parental control befor I headed off to school.
I hung out with Lesley during the day. We went on a mission to find something but we failed miserably. It woudl have been so good if we found it but we didnt so remain our original selves. Thats confusing i know... good. moving on.
So we hung out for the day, walked around in the rain. Thats pathetic phalacy for you. I'm leaving town, its raining outside. You know how we do.
Then we went to Old Navy... or maybe that was the day before, i think it was, but none the less I got the best TRack Jacket ever, well I'm obsessed with them but still, its red and beautiful. That's how we do.
Then Lesley had to go home for supper so I ate by myself since my family was at the BBQ, I had burgers on the old George Forman, so good. I lvoe that machine.
Then I finished packing, which was a struggle let me tell you.
Brodie and LEsley came over and helped me finish packing... well they sat there as I packed my clothes and stuff.
Then we called Brit and asked if she wanted to come out with us, obviosuly she did!
So we picked her up and went to Booster Juice which is pretty much the best thing ever. Way better than Bubble Tea which I wasted a lot of moola on. Now its all about the boosters baby.
Then we walked over to Old Navy and Walmart, we didnt go in walmart but we approached it. Then decided it wasnt safe...
We did cruise Old Navy though, jsut as it was closing. We got a lot of nasty looks.
Then we decided to go back to Brodie's house and watch Transporter... thats right, I got three people to sit down and fall in love with the movie. Jason Statham takikng off his shirt won over the girls... and probably brodie too.
Then after that I drove everyone home.
We got to Lesley's, said goodbye.
went to Brit's, said goodbye.
Went back to my house, went to the corner with Brodie where we have spent many nights comtemplating things, analyzing everything we and others do. It felt right to have my last moments in kitchener there.
So we shook hands and that was all she wrote.
My last night in Kitchener.

Goodbye number 2
Today I hung out with Chantal and Brit. We went to see 40 yr old virgin and it was sooooo funny. It was awesome because at the theatre we didn't know what we were going to see. We were standing looking at that beast of a sign that I love so much which says all the times and stuff on it when i was mauled from behind by a big hug. I didnt know who it was until i turned around and it was krysta! how awesome. She was there with her brothers girlfriend or soemthign and she was seeing 40YOV and told us to come in with them and sit with them. So she went back to the theatre and we decided to go see that one. We got in the theatre, climbed over seats and I planted my big dehrier right beside her. It was awesome unexpectedly seeing someone there, especially since im leaving now. :
So after the movie we went to the mall when I exchanged my belt and saw jackie working there. Haven't seen that girl in a long while either, my god. So we talked for a bit, Im gonna drop in tomorrow to say goodbye to her before I head out. So then after that we went to dinner, nothing eventful there.
Then we went to the buskers festival... I have no idea what a busker is but it was great! Theres all these street performers, chantal wanted to do one badly. Brit and I walked aroudn to the back in this parking garage and as one performer said to us "we have backstage passes" yussss. Then all these people came and surrounded out spots but i was sitting on the rail so no one went in front of me. IT was so funny though, except the last guy who was a little too randy in his jokes...really. He was thrusting everything.
So then we went back to drop off chantal. Walked up to the corner and back, said we should go. We didnt. We talked for about an hour outside her house. Talked about old highschool times, or where our lives are gonna be in ten years, lots of that. And of course, about where we are right now. Then it was goodbye. Or as i see it, see you in a bit. Chantal left and I drove Brit home. Twas a very goodnight. Thanks ladies.

Stream of consciousness
I leave in two days now for york. :
I had to sudo-cancell plans with sara tonight because I needed to pack and stuff.
But sara and I did get out time together which we havent hung out in so long.
We picked up right where we left off.
We drove around for a bit,
then went to our creek,
sat there for a bit
a bat came and visited us
Sara thought she saw something walking/crawling so we went back to the car
We drove around a bit and then parked ourselves at Dominics school right across from my house
We talked there for some more.
Lots of conversation
Lots of thoughts
Lots of emotions evoked.
lots of fun!
Then i had to go home since I was already an hour late anyway.
When I got home I took battle against my closet.
It hadnt been cleaned out in ages.
I went through everything,
giving stuff away to goodwill I didnt wear anymore
trying on stuff to see if it fits.
ive never tried on so much stuff
sara says im like GQ but emo.... so im EQ, i like Q, but I am not emo:P
I packed everyhting back in nicely
It fits so well now.
I realized how much stuff i havent worn in forever I still love.
Like a few golf shirt that i used to htink were too tight now fit beautifully
I shrunk or they grew
which one I dont know.
I sound like a woman but I dont care
My closet is cool, so are my clothes.
tomororw I'm haning out with Brittany and chantal....
and apparently other people
we'll see who she plans on brining.
its my last night with those two, its gotta be jsut the trio for a bit at least.
We're going to go see a movie,
40 year old viring, or
four brothers, or
then we are going to a mall also, since i need to return my belt,
blasted belt sizes, how am i supposed to know.
this time i will try it on.
then we are goign to go to the park, like old times,

Road Trips and Games
Today Laura and I for our second last day before she leaves decided to go to Mississauga which is about forty-five minutes away. It was our first road trip, gotta thank the pops here for lending me the car and allowing us to drive down there. :
So Laura and I hit the 401 and were on our way, listening to music, talking, enjoying the ride down there. Then we got to Square One which is the biggest mall in ontario ready for some mean shopping. We shopped for five hours... rather she shopped for 4 and i shopped for 1. I didn't mind at all though, I love shopping with her, I say it everytime we go. I don't know why, its just nice to see her pick out clothes, watch her try them on, get asked my opinion even though I don't have much of a fashion sense so its more of a reassurance thing for her. We both actually had some good buys in. Boat House acutally had stuff on sale, I was amazed. I got a shirt 50% off. and she got a bathing suit for the same deal.
Then we moved on to other stores. I got the best pair of cords ever at old navy, I love them so, dark drown. She got this sash thing which acts as a belt but holds nothing up, I really don't know it just looked nice though. Then she got three books. One was a SU DOKU book that I have now gotten her and lesley hooked on. That little treasure I discovered in London, England. The other one was... Robin you'll like this, Angels and Demons by Dan Brown, I probably totally mucked that up so please forgive me. The other one was a book that lesley got with me sunday.
I got two DVDS. I got The Transporter and The Professional. Both movies are from Luc Besson, one of my fave directors. He wrote and directed the Professional and wrote transporter. So the deal was two for thirty, but one of them came with a movie pass to famous players, which is like ten bucks now a ways, so therefore i would have paid that anyways, so its really two for twenty. I ROCK>
Then after being all shopped out we headed over to chapters. I looked for my book, wasnt there, then i just looked at my movie section as always, looking at all the books i want to buy but that section is too expensive.
Then we went to Jackastors where we hadthis really hyper and funny waitor, I tipped him well, he was supoib with the refills.
Then we went to playdium and played mini golf. She won... "fair and square" and then we went and got a game ticket with money on it. We played the games, I rock a skiball or whatever its called where you bowl balls up the ramp into the holes.
We gathered out tickets and went to get our prizes. We comprimised. We had 150 points, she got giraffe glasses worth 90 and i got a small tiny horse, she said it could be my "capt. oats", so much OCness everywhere. So i for that for forty points and twenty went unused.
Then we drove home and watched tv and all that jazz. It was a great day, first day trip far away. I'm so up for more whoever wants to go on some.

May I just add that it sucks when you finally get on messenger and nobodies on. like seriously. But then i saw robin on, i love robin, always there when i need her. so we had a splendid chat. then laura came on, good to talk to her obviosuly. then they both got off and i was all alone. then jsut came on for like two minutes, but i enjoyed the chat none the less... now im jsut wasting journal space. goodnight.
So I'm in Ireland right now, i must say that it is beautiful here! everywhere you look there is some beautiful scenery somewhere. I went to London for three days last week which was the best, far better than ireland. See here in ireland its all family stuff but in London it was just my dad and i and it was like a normal vacation. did so much stuff, saw Les Miserables and Chicago. London, the theatre capital, yusss. then i stumbled across the nation film theatre where i snackedi n the cinecafe. then the next night we went there again because i jsut had to see a film there. They were showing all classic films that month, they called it "essential cinema august" and it was great. I saw a Michael Powell film, hes this filmmaker from England who is huge here. it was one of his pictures from 1943 and it was called black narcisuss. It was so good for its time, i was so impressed with it. now compared to todays standards it was bad, as my dad fell asleep in it, but you have to compare those films to their time. then i did lots of other stuff that will have to wait because i have to get off my aunts computer now. So i hope everyone is having a blast and i hope to be back soon. :
26th July 2005
So I hung out with lesley today, gotta love that girl. We hung out, got DQ... BLIZZARDS what else, faked going to old navy and then went back to my house to watch Euro Trip which is such a funny movie. Then she drove me to the bank to get some money for poker night and then that was the end of our day. :
Then I went out and hit some golf balls at the range with my dad and sister. I haven't played golf in so long my god... and i was reminded why. Although i'm not that bad really.
Then it was off to poker night, the guys night in. We had a foursome tonight with only three regulars. Dave had to be home early, his parents were uber pissed at him and we go LATE as you can tell by the time this entry is written at. Then Matt bailed on us, although I don't know if he's a regualr yet anyway, he's only played the one night. So instead Brodie got Gilbert to come who ended up being a good person to have at the table, not just because I won his money either. But yes I did win finally. I always come in second and everyone says that I read the game the best and deserved to win so I guess it finally came around. Sadly I am now gone for two weeks and will miss poker greatly. While I'm gone I hope Brodie wins em and then Gilbert comes in second, no offense to the other guys.
Well Its late, no ones on msn, and im tired... and hungry. All i've had today was like two buns with roast beef on them. Oh and margarin, can't forget that. Goodnight.

you're conor oberst in commander venus. His first
real band, the one that started saddle-creek
and lead on to bigger and better things for the
man. without you there would be no Bright Eyes
and no critics snaping at your heals. congrats
for being an overachiever at such a young age.
you rock. which conor oberst are you? brought to you by Quizilla
Well today was a very good day. It started with watching "Swimming with Sharks" last night, its starring Kevin Spacey who is the best. Then I got to bed... well i watch the movies in bed so I got to sleep at like 4:30 ish. Then I was waken up this morning by Laura calling. That was at noon. Then I slowly got up, eat the mini pizzas that my sister made me, so that was my breakfast... sooooo good. :
Then as I said last night, Lesley called me after she got off work, which was at like 2, so we had a bonus hour. I picked her up and we went to Chapters because I had a craving ( I haven't had starbucks in forever, I miss my vanilla bean, whoever goes with me next time remind us to get vanilla beans!) plus we both needed books for the remainder of the summer, especially for my trip. So we went around there for a while. I bought Sinner, part of the Wayfarer Redemption series. Its apparently really good so we will see. I definitely want to get into reading more now, like two books a month. Frequency has always been my downfall. Its wierd because while I do want to read a lot more I am also getting more interested because I want to find a book thats amazing and adapt it into film. I am for sure doing that with the Perks of Being a Wallflower, once I write the script, make one feature for them to trust me with the project and then sell the idea to whoever already owns the rights.
Back to Lesley/Conor day. Then we headed over to Old Navy because she bought a bundle of socks, three pairs, yesterday and got home only to realize that there was only one white sock. Good stuff here. So we returned it and then decided to go to Mantannas for supper before I went to work. That's become our place... sort of, we have lots of places we later discovered on the ride home. So after dinner with poor poor service we went and got Dairy Queen. Blizzards are soooooooooo good, especially brownie batter and chocolate chip cookie dough.
Then I dropped her off at home and headed to work. Work wasnt bad, I got off early which is a bonus. I called lesley because we were going to hang out afterwards but apparently she went out isntead so I was stranded. But then I discovered that Laura and a whole lot of people were at Victoria park hanging out so I went down there and met up with them. We hung out there for a bit and then went to get some Bubble Tea. Then after some interesting conversations, interesting ideas and interesting people our night was over and I headed home to... well this.
So tomorrow I am going to watch the gold tournament at Whistle Bear with my dad. I don't really want to go, like i dont love it but my dad would love it for me to go so im gonna do that, he's gone to plenty of my stuff that he had no interest in... lol all the 18a movies i used to drag him into. So then after that tomrrow I'm getting together with Laura and then i'll get a good movie in there or so.
Maybe I will make another entry, we're on a roll now. Goodnight.
23rd July 2005
I got home from work a little while ago and I was going to watch a movie but then I decided against it so here I am. I watched Leon the Professional yesterday and it is such an amazing movie. Its with Jean Reno and Natalie Portman in her first movie~! She's so cute in it but she swears like a sailor! my god. :
So I work tomorrow night 6-11, which isnt bad. If it was anything like tonight i'lll be home at ten because it was so dead. We sent everyone home at like 9:30 then it was April and I til close with nothign to do, except time for me to learn how to count down tills, yay!
Now where I was actually going with that was that I work tomorrow, then thursday 5-8, then I'm gone on my trip. I'm going to Ireland and England for two weeks for those of you who are behind or I jsut haven't todl yet. Now you'd think that the week before I leave, friday morning, they would give me lots of shifts or at least my usual. Nothing, I got nothing. Now while I am complaning here it does grant a good situation. It's ample time for hanging out with my friends before I go away; especially Laura. Here's some pleasant news for those of you who haven't heard about this... which is a lot of people.
Laura and I have been together for over two years now. We just had our two year last wednesday. I was going to post an update for that date but havent yet, probably wont now. So in September I am going to York University and she is going to Western, that's Toronto and London, two hours by train. Now while that isn't a huge distance, its still a distance so that's hard enough. Then this summer is important to spend time together before we head off to school, we still plan to stay together though. So now I am heading away for two weeks come a week from today. That will take us to the 13th. So thats six days now to spend together. Then I get back on the 13th and we have some time then... four days. She leaves on the 17th to go to Europe for two weeks. Now that sucked before but I was fine with it. Now here's the kicker... She gets back on the 29th.... I leave for Toronto on the 28th. So when she gets back from her trip I will be gone. That's the worst part about it. I'm so in way over my head with all of this. Oh well, We'll enjoy our time now then go on like a month hiadus with a four day rest period, then school will come and we can start our long distance relationship.
On to more positive notes... LESLEY-CONOR hour tomorrow! Lol she gets off at three, i work at six. So we're going to chillax for a little bit, dinner maybe, who knows what the cards hold.
Well I get distracted easily so this has taken me a good hour to write now, I shall end it here. Goodnight.

Well I haven't been on this much, but that isn't because I haven't wanted to really, its more because I just haven't been on the computer much. I mean, I wake up in the morning sometimes, go on msn to see if anyone is on and then just put myself to away and leave for the day. I just haven't had time really to be on, which isn't always a bad thing is it? So on to things. :
Tonight was Jen's birthday party. We all went to her house and hung out. I had a really good time just sitting in the backyard talking to everyone, watching people getting thrown into pools. It was nice to get together with that group of friends and only that group. Not to be mean to like my chantal, brit, keara, sara, etc. side at all becuase I love them too but it was nice being with this group again, like old times. I hadn't seen some of the people in a while too so that was nice. It was just a good night sitting outside in the afternoon then into the night, watching the sun set above our heads and watch the night come.
A couple of us guys have also started a poker night recently. It's great, seeing as I never hang out with just guys anymore, its nice to have that male bonding back in at least some form. We get together each week and usually play about two games in a night. Five dollar games, which really isn't bad. So those nights are always great.
What else, what else. Oh yes. I have to say that I have found a hidden treasure. the movie SAY ANYTHING is such a good movie. I love it so much. It is kinda weird but in a good way, because I think that Lloyd, the main character is so much like me. That's not why I love the movie either. But it's just such a heartwarming movie. Definitiely made my fav. movie list.
Well that's pretty much it for my update now. Other than the fact that I'm way over my head in something. I have to leave for Europe soon and then school. I don't know what I'm going to do, really.
I need a haircut too.

It was around this time last year when I first took on Blurty. Here I Am one year later, with no entries in three months. I have returned once again hoping to keep this up. Now I've said that before and it didn't work so we'll jsut let this play out on its own and see if it works. :
So Highschool is over. I had the best times of my life while in highschool, met the best people there, had all the memories. Now this isn't to say that all my memories take place in highschool but rather just because of highschool. I very much enjoyed highschool, like a lot. More than most I think. People say that they didn't enjoy going to classes much or that they're so happy to be done highschool but I'm not. At All. And it's wierd because I am going to film school, which most of you don't know since I didn't write about it, but I still want more highschool. Not like coming back another year though ,I coulnd't do that, I only could if everyone was. Like we had a fifth year. I'd totallty be up for that. I will greatly miss highschool.
I guess the reason I am back to this is because I miss it. I really do. I miss reading other people's journals everyday and keeping up with their lives. I miss writing about my life so I can look back on it, which I prbly never will, unless I need to write a screenplay about my life. But none the less I've had a lot of situations I wish i had written about in here. This summer will have many I'm sure. So I wish to write about them all. Already there are some that I want to talk about but I'll get to those tomorrow.
Goodnight to you all, its really late and I need to get up UBER early so I can do into work at 9, do my preping, watch movies with work people cause we're so cool, three of us haning out, then go back to work, finish prepping then go out with laura at 7. Yikes, but I can do it. I'm looking for a dare to be great situation. <3

So here I am in International Business again, doing an entry that is long over due. I doubt anyone is actually reading this because most of you have moved on from this as I did for a long while or you've just simply stopped checking mine becuase of the obvious. However I wish to return and continue to document my life, no matter what stage it is in. As for now I am stuck trying to decide what to do for the next four years, and with this particular choice, even the rest of my life. I recently got into Film School at York in Toronto. I;ve also gotten into business at Laurier which is one of the best schools for business around, especially in Accounting. So here I am stuck trying to make this decision. Not only do I not know which decision that I am going to make but I have absolutely no clue how I am goign to make this decision. My dad told me that we were going to make a pro and con list for each choice but that really doesnt help. I know both schools are great, I know what i'd do well at both and that either way I'm living in residence. This decision is so much more than a "which university to attend" choice; its a "which path of life to choose." Do I go for the safe route and go for business that will get me a good job, good pay, good life; or do I go for my dream, do I try my luck and be a filmmaker. I don't really know what I want to do. I guess i'll jsut keep playing each different situation over in my head and think about it more and more, which seems to occur when the same people ask me day to day, which isnt aanoying surprisingly. People keep telling me that they think that I should go for film because I will regret it if I dont. I'll come up with a decision sooner or later. I jsut hope that when I do make the decision that I 100% know that its the right one, whether or not it actually is. :
Thank you for listening, or reading. Have a good one.

So I'm in Data Management right now and have nothign to do. I'm so bored so I figured why not try the world of Blurty again. I havent had a need to write on here for a while, i dont know i guess i just lost interest in my life as wierd as that sounds. I jsut didnt want to rehash it on here. However, now things are pretty awesome again so her I go. :
My newest film in film class is going really well. We film everyday and that is such an awesome way to start the day. I am writer, cinematographer and director of this. As of right now its called "Inner Battle" but that was the name I put on it at the end of the night that I wrote it. I wrote it in thirty minutes and havent gone back and changed it, we all decided it was good enough as it is. It's a psychological/action film that deals with the notion that light will win over darkness. However it may not be the case... dun dun dun. I am really looking forward to finishing this film and getting it edited all together. As of right now it's due on Wednesday but it'll prbly change since not many people will be done. Especialy because everyone else in class is doing analog and I'm doing digital, I prefer digital so much because I can edit at home. Well with digital liek the rest of the class, 3 other groups, are using it takes longer to edit because it can only be done in class, while at home I can edit until three in the morning, which I do regularily. So it wil probably be due Monday, since thursday is a half day and friday we have off. So during that time I will edit and it will be a good weekend.
Bell just rang, See you later.

Okay, I need to take a survey. This is going to sound gay but I assure you this is for strictly heterosexual purposses. I bought this sweater which I htink is awesome, but no one has said they liked it yet, so I am going to take a survey on here whether or not its not just me or if im a loser. Plus, mainly becaus I'm wired on caffeine and cant sleep! :
Here are the pics.PLUS I jsut need to show you the best hat in the world!Thank you for your time.
University Stuff Mainly
So yesterday while I was at work I got a call from my mom telling me that I had a package from Laurier, a big one. So when I got home I opened it up and it was an acceptance letter and package. I actually got into Laurier, which is suprising because its one of the best schools for accounting. :
Now for all those who only know me on the internet you're probably thinking "I thought this guy was a filmmaker..." well that is true, very true but there is also a very realistic part of me and my parents. My parents wanted me to apply for business programs as backups, considereing that there are only 50 spots at each film school out of 1000 applicants that apply to both. But anyways I did not expect to get into this school, this is going to make my university decision very hard because since the beginning I've always thought itd be down to film school or laurier business. But lately I've been thikning that I woulndt get into laurier but now that I have I dont know. I just hope i get into the film schools and then I can decided myself rather than have the decision made for me. I've gotten accepted to two schools now, my top business choice and my last choice. So the ones in the middle are kinda gone now, except for the business school at york. So its going to be down to a choice of four universities if I get accpeted everywhere, hopefully I do.
Next Topic. Tonight I went to Laura's house and we looked at our university stuff and planned our day for tomrow. Its scary how much stuff her and her mom need to plan out. I'm more of a spontaneous planning person while they are planning every step we take. So tomorow we are going to look at the University of Toronto, I didnt apply there but im going with laura. Then we're shopping after that. Then home to write and get my script done so I can do casting and get this film done for the festival.
Thats it for me now, I wont make you read too much. Happy St. Patrick's Day all.
Well this is my first update of March. Truth is I've been meaning to update, like after awesome nights I've wanted to come on here and just talk about them but i get distracted or i dont really want to type about them. But really I wish I would have cause then i could always look back and read them and remember how awesome the times were. Now by that description alone you'd think i've had an unforgettable march, well i have in many aspects but nothign really specatacular has happened. theres been a few things but nothign HUGE. So with that note I will update a bit. :
This march break started out being the worst ever. I had nothing to do and just sat around all day while everyone else was out and about doing things or gone somewhere, gone anywhere but here. So I just sat around and did nothign at all. I got in a few arguments with people too which totally sucked but then thigns started to pick up today. The only down side is that Laura is gone and I dont know where she is... lol.
today brodie, lesley and I went to the mall. I didn't buy anyting because I had jsut gone to the other mall three days ago and bought new shoes and a hat so im kinda low on cash. And then I headed off to work. Then after work I went to brodies house and we all watched riding in vans with boys, which was hilarious at times. Well I thought I was going to wrtie more but Im tired and have to get up early tomorow for work. I will have a bigger update later though,

I am so mad right now! I mean I never did like Clint Eastwood, never knew why but now I know. Martin Scorsese deserved to win. He should have won a long time ago with Taxi Driver a damn long time ago, in the 70s. He didn't because he was a New York man and all the academy is hollywood so they snubbed him, fine be bastards. I wasn;t born so i'll let it slip. THEN came such greats like goodfellas. He made so many good films after that. Then comes Gangs of New York in 2002. It was great. Did he win then? NO. Fine, again pissed off. But now with Aviator come on. He deserves it! It was as obvious as a deserved award goes just as Peter Jackson was last year for lord of the rings. COME ON PEOPLE. I wish he would have won. He's going to be pissed off and fed up after tonight. He'll continue to make great films but probably will give a big "Fuck You" to the acadmy. :
It totally threw off my predictions too. I was 10/10 going into the final awards. And then lost my streak like that! I had Martin and Aviator picked but nooooooooo they had to give it eastwood. I think its his face and the way he talks that bothers me but oh well. Ruined my perfect streak. 10/12 aint bad though.
You're looking quite sharp, sugar. :
You've got some teeth on that stare.
You've got them tattered blue jeans on.
You've done that thing with your hair.
This bed could use a secret and these pounding hearts could keep it.
If you could, i could, i swear.
You turned me on and i'd like to know if you were trying.
Angel we are so gone.
