Hiking, Travelling and Dreaming

This was intended to be my thoughts on travelling, but I'll have to tame my wanderlust for a while longer....

It's the morning and Mercury, Prince, Jen and Joel are still asleep. My cat allergies are bad so I'm awake. We had our infamous party lastnight. I'm not sure how many people there were but I stayed sober to keep everything under control!! Everything went smooth, Jen got a little rowdy/ aggressive, but that's the bulk of our excitement.

I feel ready to go back to the city. My eyes are burning as I speak. I wanna scratch but I know it'll make it worse. It was fun to be back, but I could have a drive up tomorrow with Tender Lovin' and I'd get to go to Gordie's party. The only reason I'd stay till the 1st is to see my parents (who deserted me during the holidays). They're in Mtl as I speak, living in the flat while I live a life of royalty in their home!!

I gotta go clean up, though most of the mess was picked up lastnight by Beefie (someone we knew from air cadets).

Anyways, nothing else....

Later!!

Beware of a Volunteering Scam- Humana

Lastnight I heard about a scam. It's sad because the people they scam are good, honest people who want to help. A friend of mine had been planning on going to Africa to help promote AIDS awareness. He had signed up through a program called Humana

But it turns out that Humana is actually owned by Tvind - a secular cult with a rich leader on trial in Denmark. Apparently, this program accepts anyone, and makes its members pan-handle, beg and fundraise. Where does that money go?? To a rich man. How much of the money goes to help in Africa?? Very little, possibly none.

My friend luckily found out about it now. But he already paid application fees and spent money travelling to Toronto for meetings.

Some could argue that this organization is no worse than any corporation, but I see it as worse. They are taking advantage of young people that actually want to make a difference.

Not all of these organizations are scams but before signing up or paying for anything, be careful!!

I wanna help too, but not the rich get richer!!!

I'm feeling low... must be 'cause it's the end of the semester and my last exam is demain. I was having a blast studying in the silent room here at the library. It has all these desks and I was eating. 'Cept, we aren't allowed to eat or drink in there.... I almost got caught a couple of times but the guard must not have seen my tangerine peels nor my yogurt container. It makes it more exciting, I guess.

Okay, I'll get back to my studying.... Argg someone kick me!!

Hasta Luego Pépé

The crusades of the diaryland users have begun.... We have 2 new bloggers on my list who switched over from diaryland!! Check them out... I won't tell you which:)

oops i forgot....

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM

It's beautiful. J'aime la neige. I wanna play in it but I'm confined to the office to write my last paper- the placebo effect.

Snowball might have cancer.

Okay no more procrastinating for me....

Adios!!!

I just handed in my research proposal.... Like Jayne, I am second-guessing it. I feel like it wasn't perfect, but I had to hand it in!! At least, it's a nice weight off my shoulders. Now I can lurk in the library for hours like Critter to study for my upcoming exams!!

In the lab, they want me to do the voice of Zudoc- a gender neutral child from outer space- for one of the procedures. It's a video and they just needed the voice. I was ecstatic... it's like my dream come true:) I guess all those voice imitations paid off, thanks mom. ("It's the professional for the click-click-click-click....")

Jen was in Monty this matin before her departure to TO! We went to see her and it got me looking forward to my trip home and to being home. However, the grass is always greener and once I get into that dander-filled house and am there, it could be a different story!!! But I think I'm more mature and can inhibit my anger and maybe not fight avec mes parents!!

Well, that's all I have to say....

I'm planning a party in Matapedia when my parents go to Montreal, some time after Christmas!!! How does that song go, the one Mercury loved , "And I feel like I'm 12 years old..". More like 15 though, when my bro & I would have parties when the family went away!!

Ciao:)

It seems like the seasons have changed. It fits nice with the times. Went climbing tonight, it was great but crowded. I wanna start going fulltime next semester and improve. I realize how much strength it takes from your fingers.... trying the harder climbs (5.6) well it's challenging for me:)

I gotta go to the kitchen before my supper burns....

Good luck with exams!

Ooooh rotty!!!

I'm so tired. I have a draft of my paper written, well pretty much but I can't stand to re-read it. The cognitive side of language is so dry!

Well gotta get back to it... exam mode is around the corner, so I may not write much (or have much to write about). My nerdy life ain't so interesting.

Also my Dec 23 exam was changed to Dec 10:) It's good, but I'll still be leaving on the 23rd with Terrence Lawrence (Tender Loving) & Critter & Derek & whoever else!

Ciao
