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....

Friday, our flat will be invaded by the Lyons!! Critter is graduating so it'll be a full house. Mine isn't till the 13th.

If I had something interesting to write, I would, but I don't. Except uh, we went to Brutopia last night with Craig (Jayne- u remember him from the party). It was trivia night so that was fun, well if we could ignore Craig's "advances". I say we cuz he was being opportunistic/ obnoxious towards Critter & I.

I think it's grand prix weekend so work should be busy.....

He makes me sick
An alcoholic
I keep trying to help
This time I'm not bailing you out, bro
You whiskeyed away your pay
Now find another sucker today

Today I got a postcard from Jayne. I enjoy reading her blog with green eyes. Vicariously, of course. It's more exciting than being a barista.

Demain, I can sleep!!! Anyone who knows me would know I'm not much of a sleepie-head. But I'm looking forward to waking up late 9/10 am:)

I'm singing. It's Friday....

Gonna go for a run!!!

"Bloody hell, I can't believe..... (fill in the blank)."

That's what I hear from dad. He calls me to lecture me about my brothers, as if it's somehow my fault. Ca m'énerve!!! I don't wanna hear about it. I've sold my soul to the second cup corporation, why can't my bros be conformists too? Why can't Phil call revenue quebec and tell them he's a student? Why do I get lectured by dad that he has no money, when I'm not asking him for any?

I hate it!! I'm sick of being everyone's doormat!!

Waking up at 5 am can be pleasing. I love getting off work and still having sun.

I have no sympathy for Mr Brendan. It's been said that there are only an infinite amount of stories, and these themes keep on repeating themselves. This is the story of the little red hen all over again.

I won't forget him running off to "party like it's 1969" after receiving his provisionary loan. I won't forget trying to help him plan ahead. But I hope that history will not repeat itself.

This may seem cold but it hurts me to see someone so talented and bright end up being pushed farther away from his dreams. It's disrespectful to those of us who actually have to study hard, go to class and hand in assignments (aka the rock busters). It's a shame because I'm sure he's one of the better writers... but the dept doesn't see that.

At least he hasn't given up. I think he's ready to go back to school, hard core. After a year of history, they'll take him back and if not, I know he'll succeed.

J.B. I may not be able to feed you stale chicken wraps with day old Presse salad, but I want to help you get back on track.

Time to say to say goodbye....

Finished my time at Presse... Kinda feel wierd. They switched me to another 2nd cup... I've been rejected;) Now I'll be at the one on Guy, in the faubourg.

Gotta sleep

My feet smell
I look like hell
Waking up at six
may be okay for hicks
But I'm oh so tired
Even coffee doesn't make me wired
That's for sure
I leave in the morning
get home at night
Laura's asleep tight
Critter's out in the town
I feel like I'm gonna drown
I'd prefer to be slaving in BC
With much less to do, it seemed much more easy
Besides the city was better with my "matinee idol" :(
He entertained me and gave me my title
It's 11 and I want to go to bed
But I think I'll watch Desperate housewives instead
To prepare myself for when I become one
Better yet, with class I could be a nun
My bro got a crooked new job
Only one more week of dealing with Bob
That's it for my rhyming poem
Now I'll relax, I'm finally home

Sunday, May 08, 2005

Goodnight. Just got home, gotta work at 7:30 demain at s/c then pm at PC. I'll never be a city person. I wanna escape the city and enjoy nature:( Then again, you can't always get what you want as the song goes and yah I'm going to bed. Hopefully, I'll be less like this tomorrow!!!

Johnston Canyon Resort (in the Rockies) called me lastnight. I told them the truth, that I'm returning to school in the fall, so I can't work for them...

I guess I have to tough it out and stay in this city. I'm a traitor. I've joined Second Cup, but for the next two weeks, I'll be working at both cafés. My café language is still not fluent, but eventually it'll become automatic.

I finally quit my job. Now I'm screwed if I don't find anything else:( I've given up on working in a restaurant in a Seligman kinda way. Well I have 2 weeks to find something else. I should go out today........ I want Critter to wake up so she can tell me how her night was.

My sleep cycle is screwed up... I needed an alarm to wake up at 10 am, which for me is odd.

I'm going into second cup one day this week to see if I like it and if they like me. If it works out, I may desert the Presse Café chain gang!!

I would kinda prefer a serving position, but I'm stuck in the same rut I was when I was 16! (When McDonalds wouldn't hire me - the ultimate rejection). In other words, restaurants in montreal don't want to hire me...

I found out I have to fix up my thesis, well everyone has to. Any changes that the readers made, I will have to correct. Then I have to resubmit it... I'm tempted to lie and pretend I'm in BC, just to get out of doing it.

Okay, I'm gonna shut up 'cause this entry is way too long!!
