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....

Where do I go?
What are my plans?
Why can't I concentrate?
Because grades get you nothing! My degree is a BS in BS!
I could flee to Asia, it seems like the only option.
I could work a dead end job in the mountains- which would probably make me happiest.
And I can only reapply so many times. If I can't get into slp my 2nd time, I'll be stuck anyways.
I don't know if my thesis will get done. My French stories have not all been transcribed. Arrg.

Betts gave me an idea of how to help him. Break his nose!

My bro got robbed
His apt by a mob
They took his PC
Pretty Sleazy
His digi cam too
His backpack, not his shoe


I'm serious though. Pat's apt was broken into. So people lock your doors. This is not Matapedia where we never lock anything. He had locked his and even so.... And I live in St Henri, so I need to be even more cautious!

J'attend pour ma famille. On va souper. I love you too Hg.

Mi Hermano

Guided by your olfactory
Copy the Barbaric Rat
Constant bar presses
More dopamine in your synapses
Turn away from it
Before it chnages you

I need to cry.

Okay I'm forwarding Brian Mackay everything to complete my teach corps application. I will plan to leave in July because I am contracted at the Mackay Center School (as a volunteer!)!

In the mean time, I'll finish off my undergrad, the best that I can. However, like my prof told me, grades don't mean anything. If you don't have them, it can penalize you for acceptance but if you have them, it's nothing 'cause it just makes you equal with everyone else who applies that has 'em.

I feel like I should have done more. Maybe I should have also been saving the world. Anyhow, this gives me a chance to travel without my parents being disappointed in me.

Anyways, I gotta shower and get to school. I'm gonna walk today 'cause I need the exercise/ endorphins!

PS If anyone has a place to store Marisa's stuff or wants to borrow my bed, desk, pc etc for the year.......... it's up for grabs!!

Mcgill's playing hard to get!!!

I made the waiting list which I think is pretty good for my first try at graduate school. It totally complicates my life, why can't things be black and white?! But just the other day, I told E that it would be an accomplishment to make the waiting list for slp. They only accept 22 students (10% of people that apply) so it's still good. Also, I think next time when I apply, I'll have a better shot with more experience.

Now people, what am I to do? Do I act as if I didn't get in and if by some fluke, a spot becomes available, I change my plans? Do I accept to be on their waiting list? Wait a minute, how many people are on this waiting list anyways? I need some advice!!!

Jayne: I have class late, I'll drop by your place around 7-ish, Laura's show is at 7:30 (pm of course!) Too late to call or maybe I wanted an excuse to leave my desk.

I feel overwhelmed, might not be able to use more of my data. Worse comes to worse I just get no significant results, which is okay, but my supervisor will be mad.

I'm going to step 'cause I haven't exercised in ages and could use the endorphins. My nails have gotten the shortest I've ever seen them! It was getting painful so I put sour nail polish on them.

Just watched an episode of the "L word". I feel like it was made for a male audience!

Happy Belated Birthday to Terrence Lawrence Firth!!! I swear I didn't forget!!

Yesterday my exercise science teacher pinched my fat (body fat percentage measurement).

These seem like random thoughts.

Also, heard back from Teach Corps and I need to send them more stuff and they'll hook me up with a job in Korea or Japan. I also need to tell them when I can start, I think July or August would be best. One of my siblings said he didn't think I was serious about leaving, but I am! I just need my reject letter from the prestigous school first before I make that decision to leave Canada.

I'm waiting for a participant. I hope he shows up, I gotta get this data collected & analyzed.

Okay... nothing else

I think the anger managment worked.

Work wasn't so bad. The boss hired a new guy. It made it more interesting (my coworker & I wanted him to a hire a guy for so long- so we don't have to lift the heavy things). Phil mopped my floor and Gordie kept me company. Armee gave me a hard time about our "disorganized menu" till I told him I didn't write it!!

I wanna sleep but have to finish my presentation. I just fix one word, change the font colour and then I'm totally distracted. It's on Evelyn Hooker. She's the pioneer from the 50's who did the research on homosexuals and that eventually got it removed from the DSM (mental disorders). Did you know that??

By the way, had a great weekend. Dancing on the bar at Que Leu Leu's- very fun- almost compares to a gay bar!!

I don't wanna go to work. It looks dull outside. If it was sunny, I'd already have left.

In a month I should know what I'm doing next year. Well, legally I'm obliged to tell the landlord if I wanna cancel the lease. My thesis supervisor (Norman) is in Banff for a conference on language. I wish I could be there!!

Merc: Don't worry!! I don't regret going to Sky. Everything is taken care of, well almost... I had a great time for most of the night. Besides getting a pic with a drag queen is priceless!!

I gtg to class...
