Decisions

Yiekes. Declining offers to university feels so scary. But right at the same time. I know I wouldn't have been happy there so that's what it really came down to.

Florida was great...pictures coming soon hopefully! We met a hilarious guy on the flight back. Apparently he was on the Young and Restless I do believe. But is no longer an actor. Top secret business though, something I PROBABLY shouldn't announce to the world on the internet. Now on to the next adventure: job search. This involves making a resume which will hopefully be done on Sunday.

Tomorrow I'm helping set up for a charity event here in London called Bethany's Hope Foundation. Then attended the gala event in the evening which should be great. Up by 6 a.m. and go go go until sleep at who knows what time.

Awkward Sunburns

With our arrival to the sunny state of Florida, the sun began to shine. Apparently until we got there it had been cold and a little rainy for awhile. It was totally the presence of the two of us that brought the awesome weather.

After a night of thunderstorms we awoke to a pretty much cloudless, sunny sky. And then here is where some of the first pains begin. I managed to burn myself in the most weird of ways of my red head life. I'm pretty sure there is a hand print on my stomach, a random patch only on my right arm, and blotch on my right leg.

Almost the best thing about being here is how nice everyone/everything is. For example, the ambulances are called "Sun Star Paramedics". I mean who wouldn't want to ride in a Sun Star ambulance on the brink of death....which almost everyone here is. It's just got a nice ring to it.

Diaspora

HOME
such a weird thought.

Moving out wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be, thanks to the help of some really awesome (strong) friends! I'm so grateful to have met some really amazing people this year and have every intention to keep the good times going. All of my stuff is spread throughout the house and it takes opening approximately 3 boxes at a time to find a wanted item.

What's next for me? With the drama of school next year really in the center of things now, Western is being too rude to handle. I'm in the need of job before camp starts. But what's even better you ask? Florida on Sunday! A nice little getaway with my momma to relax and start yet another new chapter of life.

As for this exact moment....chips and salsa.

Pump Up Tunes?

Hans Zimmer has become my official study buddy artist of choice. Something about him just gets my mind in gear. Perhaps that may be ironic since I am currently listening to him right now and writing a post rather than studying about how fungi reproduce....yea this sounded like more fun.

Received my mark for a paper I finished half an hour before I ran and handed it in. Result? Quite pleased. Not amazing, but acceptable, very acceptable.

Sunshine in April

Such a pleasant day, I would say. Probably could have gotten some more studying done, but that's alright, right?

By peak afternoon time, my friends and I decided to hit the books...outside...in the blazing heat. It was so hot. Don't worry, I ran to my room to get my 60 SPF. And now I am currently feeling perfectly sun kissed, no tenderness just pure, nice warmth.

Next exam is Saturday evening, so I have a great, full day of studying a head of me for tomorrow. It's business time.

Library Resort

The University of Guelph Library is the equivalent to an all inclusive resort. To get a good spot on the "beach" other wise known has near these huge windows that overlook the campus, you must wake up and be at the library approximately around 8:00 a.m. Secondly, you stay at this resort all day long, sadly you don't get served but food, drink and bathroom are all available within the confines. And to top it off, it is so sunny out the three of us here today must read and take notes with sunglasses on. It's a sad life, I know, when a library is shockingly similar to a tropical paradise, especially during exams.

If only for a few more months!

I have fallen in love with a man named Dan Mangan this year. But the only way I can see him in Toronto on April 22 is if I am 19 years of age. Almost exactly 2 months too early. Please Dan, I'm a true fan!

Woke up today to a beautiful day! I studied in the library for a bit, it was so sunny my friend was wearing sunglasses. I then had lunch with my Momma at a neat vegan restaurant here, downtown. Came back to campus, visited a bit longer and went for a quick run. After that, a shower was needed and some reading. Sadly, I succumbed to a nap.

Looking back on the day, not much was accomplished. So I am going to bed as early as possible. Yes, 11:00 is early.

Studying has overtaken my soul

It's official, the study bug has arrived. My brain already hurts and it's only been one full day. 11 days to go. Although today was quite a fun studying day, my brain is going to sleep now. Maybe it will be able to take in a few doses of information in an hour or so.

Wednesday April 14 8:30 a.m. German
Saturday April 17 7:00 p.m. Anthropology

Busy Bee


As yesterday was my last day of class, I decided to drag my camera around and take a few shots around campus. But first, I woke up to a bathroom full of newspaper. Our shower was stuffed to the ceiling with crumpled papers. But to much surprise, I was not frustrated or upset. I was quite impressed, props to the strangers.

Then the rainy day began with class and Disorientation, which brought free food and coldness. More class, a needed nap and my last official class of university: Anthropology. Useless, but so are a lot of things.

This was followed with a quick dinner, selling table duties, trip to the mall for necessary items of an ABC party (dont worry it was not cliche). We dont like cliche. I wore a blue tablecloth with some shower loufas attached randomly. Pretty decent, the design was produced by three girls in my tower.

Now the last party of the year has been followed with a needed clean up and studying for finals. Everything is slowly drawing to a close but I still dont want to quite think about that yet. Too much time to still enjoy it here. Off to study, really!

Clean up of all the newspaper

Late Night

I know it is late, quite aware. But I blame it on the late fire alarm in combination with a late shower. Its so late I can barely remember what I did today. I really cannot, its far too late.

Deanna`s band of the year (so far): Blind Pilot

German Friends

Sitting in the science atrium at the moment, working on a HUGE German presentation for tomorrow with some German friends. We've been here for about two hours and have gone off topic at least 36 times. I'm so hungry that almost every German word somehow reminds me of food.

After this, straight to an IHC board meeting in East residence. It's going to be a long one indeed, constitutional amendment on the way.

But this week is looking great. Last week of class. It seems way too strange to be. I definitely haven't posted enough. I've missed filling you all in with tons of events this semester! That includes formal, midterm stress, crazy TAs, council madness, new places, trips to downtown, falling down on the icy campus, arguments, just too much. This is why all postings from now on will be in FULL detail. Including the fact that a member of my German group's name is Eric, and could be great friends with Eric Kirk, it's true. Although I don't think he's big on working out. The sense of humor is there though.

Resolved

And the problems have been fixed. Not too sure if I quite like my layout just yet, but I like tinkering around with it. So I didn't get to the run today, shoes located in residence, I swear by mistake. It's been a great Sufjan day today, only the best kind of day.

Progress of the day includes taking a shower, having a bowl of cereal, watching The Blindside with the parents, arguing with the parents, but just haven't quite gotten around to the homework.

Listen to this! To understand his brilliance. Sufjan Stevens' song of the day

Technical Difficulties

I've been playing around with my blog for a fair share of the day, but still haven't been able to figure out with there are no dates showing for my entries! If anyone as any idea, please let me know!

After showing my dad why gingers have no souls today (South Park episode), the one-liners about ugly gingers and the such have yet to end. He's become obsessed with it, and loves it. Little does he know that I'm used to this type of torture. It's been in the making since birth.

Didn't get to any work today, so we've got to make tomorrow count. Up early enough to get a run and shower in, get my German done and head out to a concert to wrap up Easter weekend! Probably the best way possible.

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. Buona Pasqua. Frohe Ostern. Happy Easter.

Sunny Times

ahhhhhh, so I definitely suck at keeping up with these and I really wish I had cause life has been crazy yet awesome! To make up for this rudeness I will TRY TRY TRY to post for the remainder of the semester, everyday!

How's this for an adventure....road trip with Celine! Yes, we're heading out on a hour trip to good old London. I've been looking forward to this day for a week now and it's finally here! I'm excited to be spending some time at home, relaxing, seeing my family together for the first time in months, enjoying the weather and hopefully getting a start on some studying.

One week of class left of my entire first year of university. It seems so strange.
