The only thing to do when you hit a bump in the road is to push on through. You push and you push and you push, and at some point you’ll get over that bump. When you do everything will seem a lot brighter.
Just wanted to say congratulation’s to my little sister! She won her very first writing competition with her awesome visual narrative.
Way to go sis! I’m proud of you.
I am officially finished my first year of university! Woo hoo! I made it! I feel really good about my exams and I’m glad that I’m finally able to go home and stay there for some time.
Don’t get my wrong I love this campus and everything but residence life isn’t really for me. The rooms are really dull, it’s hard writing in a room like this. When I go home I’ll write and write and write and write. I love writing. I love it. I really love it. I treated myself to a delicious lunch and everything! Today has been fantastic! I’m so happy feel like busting out my moves and blasting music super loud…but instead I’m going to be respectful of others and just treat myself to a delicious lunch.
It snowed today. It was so cold going to my exam this morning…earlier exams and snow are not a good idea. Least it woke me up a little more.
Salad tastes so good. Seriously…it’s delicious. I love cucumbers and tomatoes and lecture. It was like all my favourite vegetables in one place! Plus they’re on my sandwich! Woo! BLT! I love bacon!
My meal was totally healthy until I remembered the mountain dew, the chocolate bar and the BLT. The salad was so yummy though…ahh…best meal I’ve had at this school.
Seriously…stir fry and salad are my favourite things to eat here.
Well I gotta get eating so that I can start sweeping my floor and packing up my bedding. I am so happy I kept my winter jacket here…I’m a smart cookie. Well at least that’s what my nana says. I love my nana she’s so sweet. She makes me smile. I love my family…I’m so happy. I get to go home and see my folks and actually stay longer than a day!

Wow everybody seems to be leaving residence today. No wonder it’s so noisy…
I really hope that I’m not the last kid moving off this floor because this place will be so lonely tomorrow. I’ve already moved out a bunch of stuff anyways. I was smart and decided to break it up so that we wouldn’t have to move out 9 am on a Friday.
This year went by so fast… I’m currently cram studying for my English exam because I spent more time studying for history which was on Monday. I love seeing how much information I actually remembered throughout the year. I’ve got a pretty great memory. I’m proud of my brain. It is a great brain. I’d like to kiss it for being awesome.
I bought myself a club sandwich, chips and a kitkat…because I’m on my break right now (Haha…I’m probably the only one laughing at that pun).
I’m so glad schools over. Can someone please get back to me about the 30 plus jobs I’ve applied for. I’m an active volunteer in my community, a good student and I work well both independently and with others. I’m a quick learner and I’m respectful of others. I have experience working with people of all ages and I enjoy being productive.
UGH! This is why living in a small town sucks. Maybe I’ll apply in the city after all…
Why is it snowing? Yesterday hail…today snow. Why Canada? Why…?

These last few days have been pretty rough. Today I had an exam and there have been a lot of personal family issues going on….
It’s just been rough. I usually bottle everything up inside. I’m a person who keeps to themselves when it comes to stuff like this. Especially with family situations, I feel like I suddenly need to act tough and compose my emotions around others. I realized this after my grandmother passed away. I never knew that I had this strong side to me. I’ve always been the cry baby out of my siblings…I mean I got teary eyed while watching How to Train Your Dragon (haven’t watched it since due to being laughed at). I’m surprised at my own ability to suddenly take on a different role. At times where I myself might be feeling upset and scared, I automatically smile, laugh and go on like everything is perfectly fine so that when those around me need someone strong to hold them up, I can be there for them. I’m not sure if this is exactly healthy…but I do it. I do it all of the time despite how I’m feeling.
Sometimes stuff happens in life that just kicks you in the gut and all you can do is ignore the pain and keep on pushing because the world keeps spinning. Time won’t stop because you’re faced with something that seems impossible…and heart wrenching…and completely out of your control. Life goes on and on and on and that’s it.
I hope I can make it through the rest of this week without completely breaking down. If I’m going to punch my pillow and blast music into my ears then I’d rather do that at home than while I’m here at school.
I hope the sun’s out tomorrow morning…just for a little while. I look forward to seeing the sunshine pouring into my windows.
I can’t stand being in the dark right now…all this grey and black and gloominess isn’t doing me any good. I really don’t want to be away from my family right now. Honestly I want to go home. I know I’m only here for a few days and then I get to be with my folks till September but I’m one of those people who needs to be around their family when stuff is bothering me.
Sorry for making another emo-ish post. I’ve been writing some pretty gloomy stuff lately. I seem to write happier things when I’m collaborating with my sister. She’s a funny kid.
How do you push through rough times?
Hey everyone, today I thought I’d just go on a little rant about those people who give you 69%, or 79% or 89% instead of just rounding it up to a higher grade.
I’m sure that I’m not the only person who is annoyed by this. It’s like, there’s a big difference between getting say 69% on a test versus getting 70%. 69% is still a C whereas if you get 70% that is a B and if you seriously need that higher grade to boost your average then you want that extra mark.
The other thing is that when you do get 69% rather than 70% on something they don’t explain why. It’s like, “Okay so you say that I understand but I just needed to go into further detail? Alright…well I had perfect spelling, I sourced one thing wrong and I had all of this other stuff right…so why didn’t you just give me 70%?”
It happens all the time and it’s frustrating. I’ve had it happen mainly with essays, where I’ll get like 79% and wonder why they didn’t just give me an 80%?
The year is coming to an end…this is my last week of school (university). So I figured a school related rant post would be acceptable.
It’s just so annoying…this needs to be fixed.
Props to my awesome TA who gave me a bonus mark for drawing a dinosaur on my quiz. That made my day.
I have many blisters from walking around for 2-3 hours applying for jobs. I guess it was worth it…I mean those shoes are meant for looking nice not wearing around town. Still though, why so many?
I was reading this blog post on bookbaby.com and thought that I’d share it.
