Vincent Lecavalier 
Tampa Bay Lightning 

I'm tired and a big grump from waking up to watch the Royal Wedding this morning so you do not get to be graced with a little spiel on this fellow. Just embrace in his good looks.

Awful Commercial

THE most ridiculous commercial I have ever seen. 
Just awful and I hope this has never happened to anyone. 

Hockey Player Crush of the Day: Pascal Dupuis

Pascal Dupuis 
Pittsburgh Penguins 

I've had a sizeable crush on Dupuis that really blossomed during HBO's 24/7 this past winter. He's French, cute and a great accent. And no, I am not concentrating on players who have been ousted from the playoffs, just trying to spread some lovin' around ;)

GW Boutique

The plan for today is to sort through the monster of my closet and send over the rarely used, out of date, grown out of clothing over to the wonderful GW Boutique (that's Good Will for all you non pre-owned fashion savvy people out there).

I got four boxes full but have quite a bit more of the wardrobe to get through. And I would take a picture but I don't want anyone to see our crazy living room right now...I'm in that diaspora stage yet again. So it will take a few days to organize myself but hopefully this wardrobe sifting will help out. I will have to head back to Guelph probably two more times to get the rest of my stuff that I apparently managed to squeeze into my tiny room (tinier than my residence room if you can believe that).

And a quick side note, in my very large collection of sweaters I found one that I've always loved from Gap Kids...and it still fits me! YES! I can manage to still squeeze this body into kids clothing but I still put it in the GW pile as I clearly have not worn it in forever and therefore won't be wearing it in the future.

Hockey Player Crush of the Day: Michael Cammalleri

Michael Cammalleri 
Montreal Canadiens 

In case you weren't already aware, I'm pretty big hockey nut thanks to Ryan. And so, a Montreal fan. But I have decided that as round 1 of the playoffs are wrapping up tonight I would grace my readers with a special segment for the remainder of the playoffs. As I say, "A hockey crush a day keeps the hockey gods happy" (I have no idea where that came from). 

Cammalleri has for sure been my favourite player for awhile now. I like to joke around that he is because he is both Italian and Jewish but I mean he's just plain awesome and from good ol' Richmond Hill.

Happy 100!

This is my 100th post on this blog! It sounds like a lot but for the amount of time I've been writing here it is certainly not enough. Although I acknowledge this fact I promise to make no goals on blog posting in the future because we all know how that has turned out in the past...cue the switch to tumblr and 30 day challenge fail (I believe I got to day 11). The only thing I promise that will change is this blog layout. I haven't quite grown accustom to it yet.

 On other news I just got called in to help work a campaign for our wonderful, drama-filled federal election. This should be interesting but that also means that I should probably look presentable. Au revoir.

Shine-o-rama

My face is killing me right now.

I have a new found love of showering lately, considering my entire "youth" I absolutely hated showering, I thought it was a big waste of either TV time or sleep time. But I don't know if all this showering is just making my face look so gross. I wash my face at LEAST once a day, usually before bed just because washing my face with product makes my face a little red for awhile and I don't like that look for everyday life, ya know?

But then it could be my weird diet lately combined with more running which means sweat?! AH! Just too many things that could be making this awfullness happen. On the brighter side, I'm enjoying the outlook of my summer and how blogging is quickly becoming a main priority.

Happy Easter all you readers.

Easter Weekend

Today I went for one of these which was pretty short but at least I got moving.

I then ran some of these with the Mom.

I then enjoyed an amazing of this with Mom, Dad, the brother and the boyfriend.

We discussed this, this and this.

After, I treated my Dad to a game of this. (He won all the rounds).

Now, we are currently watching the good vs. evil game 5 this.

The boyfriend is pretty much this and I've been this all night.

Summer and Shoes

Although I am not "officially" home yet (still need to move out out of 2nd year house and into much better 3rd year house) but summer has officially begun for me! A perfect timing for Easter weekend and seeing family and friends. I am now half way done my undergraduate old and will be celebrating my TWENTIETH birthday in two months! I will no longer be a teeny-bopper (although I'm not sure I ever really was) but scary none the less!

I am currently watching Say Yes to the Dress: Princess Bride special. Although it's pretty awful, it's great to critique each dress and compare people to famous people/characters based on looks. For example, Mom just compared a grandmother's face to the face of The Joker from Batman. (We aren't superficial, I swear).

And a final note, these are the tattoo-friendly shoes I got from ALDO yesterday to end my second year! I'm planning on buying them in black as well.

The General Election 41 Post

I've been thinking and thinking if I should write a post about my thoughts (and feelings) regarding the current federal election. And then my Dad sent me a joke yesterday and I thought "why not break the blog-ice with this one?" So here we go with a good old fashioned Canadian political joke:

I asked my friend's little girl what she wanted to be when she grows up.

She said she wanted to be Prime Minister of Canada some day. Both of

her parents, NDP supporters, were standing there, so I asked her, "If you

were Prime Minister what would be the first thing you would do?"

She replied, "I'd give food and houses to all the homeless people." Her

parents beamed, and said, "Welcome to the NDP Party!"

"Wow...what a worthy goal!" I told her. I continued, "But you don't have

to wait until you're Prime Minister to do that. You can come over to my

house, mow the lawn, pull weeds, and sweep my yard, and I'll pay you

$50. Then I'll take you over to the grocery store where the homeless guy

hangs out. You can give him the $50 to use toward food and a new

house." She thought that over for a few seconds, then she looked me

straight in the eye and asked, "Why doesn't the homeless guy come over

and do the work, and you can just pay him the $50?" I smiled and said,

"Welcome to the Conservative Party." Her parents still aren't speaking to

me.

AH! Blog Skillz

For some reason or another I decided to tinker around with my blog template. And BOOM. It was gone. Now I am working with this current theme until I find something that is better so just be prepared for some more changes.

And on the changes note, I realize probably what a nuisance it actually was when I changed my blog's address! Sorry about that one too, I apparently thought I was more blog-smart than I actually was.

Exam Stress Not Hitting Hard Enough

Today I finished my second exam, two more until summer! To spoil myself, for this grand accomplishment I did quite a few un-exam-full things:
  • Got a extra large coffee. Yes, this is an exam activity, however it was not consumed while reading any piece of literary value.
  • Watching TV.
  • Took a nap.
  • Slept in after my nap. Yea, I made that possible.
  • Ate chips. Not a study snack at all, although I assumed it was. Makes you feel so gross, tired and sad after.
  • Contemplated going for a run. This is still in the works and I have decided I will accomplish this as soon as the gross chip feeling fades away.
  • Write a blog post!
Incase you haven't already known this about me, I love exam time. I rarely find it stressful except for the fact that I don't have time to do things like eat properly or do laundry at a decent hour. I actually have time to sit and study my brains out, ignore people because I need to study and feel closer to accomplishing something. I have pretty much taken the day off. I had a long night and a bit of a stressful morning today. Hopefully I will manage to pull myself together and start in for the next 2 exams starting next week. As for now, I'm surfing the web, trying to not eat as awful and loving my Twitter world.

I Want To Go To Law School

I am now rounding out two years of my undergrad degree here at Guelph and have changed my mind COUNTLESS times of what I want to be "when I grow up". Here is a list of the things that I can simply remember to this day that have been options:
  • Ambassador
  • Teacher
  • Nurse
  • Counsellor
  • Doctor
  • Genetic Counsellor
  • Professor
  • Researcher
  • Anthropologist
  • Guidance Counsellor
  • Sex Therapist
  • Social Worker
  • Neuroscientist
Yea...that's more than I even thought.

So why would I ever want to go to law school? And why should people actually take it seriously? For the following reasons which may or may not lead to be true.

1. Well, first and foremost I want to be a lawyer.

2. I can turn any single argument, statement, idea into something of the complete opposite context. For this point you may ask the parents or more specifically the boyfriend.

3. I got a practice LSAT question right that only 39% of testers get correct! That's a good sign right?!

4. I always see things from both/all sides of view. This one you can verify with my housemate. Just when you think a story is settled, BOOM, I think of a different plausible outcome or solution.

5. As listed above, I've always seen myself dealing with and representing, whether it be counselling, research, teaching, an ambassador or student government. But I've also always seen myself in an academic or professional setting. Being a lawyer would hopefully give me both of these things.

5. I'm an advice giver. And as of right now I do this for a very cheap cost of nothing.

6. I like being overly and professionally dressed.

7. Because if anyone knows me at all, I work more than I should and harder than I should. In every job I've had I've put in longer than needed hours and more then needed work.

8. I like libraries.
