Friday Wrap-Up

The only reason that I'm excited that's it's Friday, is because this Monday is Family Day in a few provinces in Canada. Ontario being one of them. I'm thankful for that and am going to enjoy it. I've learned to take advantage of Government/Federal/Provincial days off, because I have the law behind me to say, I need a damn break! I know that I'll be working on school stuff for the rest of today and all of this weekend....more

Pictures & Life

Doc Martin is back in North America, so I was glad to see that. I missed it and Martins' miserable self. Hopefully him and Louisa will be able to make it. Anyone else watch Doc Martin? I didn't stay up to watch Downton Abbey, I'll just watch it next Sunday at 5. I can't start my week tired. I still haven't managed to have a day off with no school work yet. I don't think that's going to happen anytime soon....more

Friday Wrap-Up

Yoga is going well. The flexibility is coming back sooner then thought it would. Muscle memory, I guess. I will continue to make time for it because it can't hurt and I feel that it's helping. Here's to hoping that I keep it up!...more

Snow, Acne & Life

I've heard that at this time of year when there's a big snow storm, it should be the last big one of the year? Who knows, I'll have to see that to believe it. It doesn't mean that the snow is done but it shouldn't be as plentiful. Have any of you heard that? It could be along the lines of the poor groundhog and his "predictions". Anyway this is Canada and it snows, so really there's not much to complain about. These are the winters of my childhood. It used to snow like this all winter long....more

Light at the End & Spoken Word

This week started roughly but it seems to be ending on a higher note. I won't say it's great, but I can almost, see the light at the end of the tunnel. One of my upcoming projects in my Multimedia class is pretty interesting. I do have to pull what I've learned from my other classes to make the project work, but I'm actually using one of my future business models in it. The combination of writing, photography, web design and animals of course....more

School Struggles & Bell Let's Talk Day

I really hate to come on here and just whinge, but that is where life is for me right now. It's reality and I'm doing my best not to sugar coats things, when in reality things are covered in a huge dose of cheap, white, vinegar. Well it seems as though the weekends, at least one day, are not going to be a time to rest, recuperate and relax. I don't know how that's going to turn out in the long run. Class time is not enough time for me to absorb the knowledge....more

School Is Getting Better?

Well it's the start of week 2 and I'm pretty sure I'm the only female in all of my classes. I'm still deciding if I care, but really I'm leaning towards not caring. The only competition at this point is with myself.Lessons learned and things to remember throughout the rest of this school year:...more

Weekly Wrap-Up

Well my first week back to school was kind of good, but kind of a hot mess. Some classes seem like they are going to be manageable and enjoyable. Others seem like they are going to give me a plenty of grey hairs, crows feet, and even more acne. Talk about a week of self doubt. Seriously, it was pep talks to myself all week long....more

First Day Back To School

And I survived. Not that I thought I wouldn't but, I forgot how tiring it is to listen to other people lecture for hours on end. I know it will get better after all of my classes are done with the introductory lessons. I just want to start doing things. That always makes the classes fly by.I did learn not to pack sandwiches with too many vegetables or mayo. The bread just does not hold up. Soggy is not appetizing. I also put too much crap in my carry-on bag. I'm not renting a locker, so I need to lighten my load....more

Cooking Food For Kai the Cat

When I mean cooking, I'm talking about steaming some poultry. Not because I really want to, but because it's a solution that's working so far. I use to add chicken, beef or some liver to her food as a supplement, when she was a kitten. She was a mess and needed the pure protein. So I guess I'm back to that. Not that I feed her crappy food, but it is processed none the less....more
