3 Lives in ONE Hour. WHAT!?

4 May

Forgive me faithful readers but before i begin my usual update I feel as if I must first get a much needed rant off my chest.

As you probably know by now, I am but a lowly university student. I cant afford a car and in fact, cant even afford to take my drivers test ( its on my bucket list…15$, took it once and failed but have not been able to afford to take it again since LOL).

SO, I consider myself very fortunate to go to a university that has a U-Pass system for students. What is a U-Pass? well a U-Pass stands for “University Pass” it is a free bus pass that is given to any student who wants one and attends my school. It is not only a valid card for local transit but is apart of the “safe ride home program” (a free taxi ride worth 25$) and lets us get discounts at certain coffee shops and stores around town AND also lets us go to the local city pool/gym for free.

Needless to say, I love my free bus pass. Without it, i would be lost and abandoned in the world of bumming rides off of my parental unit, whom tends to talk my ear off and whom I regretabley have very little patience for.

Image

I love everything about the bus, it gives me freedom and so whenever I see my amazing bus drivers doing their job above and BEYOND their duty, I get a little livid.

I was on my bus, heading to volunteer some time at my workplace (which i do often and does NOT count as a bucketlist item) when at the next stop parapeligic man (whom i see often) wants to get on. Now, if you have never taken public transit, there is a ramp that gets lowered electronically to allow people in wheel chairs and those with walkers easier access. However, it is slow and naturally takes time to lower, and not only that but then the driver has to get up and seatbelt the person in to the handicapped section in the front of the bus. Sometimes arguing with ablebodied persons who simpley refuse to leave their seat in this section (morons). So anyways, my driver (one of the funner drivers in town) lowers the ramp and is being nice and polite chatting with the man as he drove up the ramp, when people start to honk and swear as they drove past the bus. Flipping us the bird and being REALLY obscene about it.

I over heard my awesome driver say “Dont worry about it, they dont understand this is handicapped access” to the man getting on whom was so upset by it he was starting to back off so the bus could leave without him.

Do these asshole drivers not noticed the disability light that flashes whenever someone like this is getting on? this Peeves me off to no end. There is no reason who anyone should make anyone else feel like their disability is a burden on others. READERS. DONT BE ONE OF THESE PEOPLE. Seriously, no matter where you are, show a little kindness.

That barista you are getting your coffee from who just got your order wrong? Might have a learning disability or simpley having a bad day. They are people.ImageThat bus driver who is parked to let people on on the side of the road but blocking traffic, may not have achoice and is just doing their job.

Kind ness and PATIENCE seems to be a lost art nowadays.

Just something to think about.

Anyways, Im tired of talking about stupid people, lets move on to what we are all here for ๐Ÿ˜€

3 Lives in…ONE hour!???

FUNNY THING. Do you remember the last time I gave blood? It took me THREE WHOLE HOURS (which, in hindsight is not allot to save any number of lives). Well this time it took WAY less time, which was super nice, but also kind of concerning in a way. There were less than half the amount of people there, ready to give than when i had my last appointment. :C Sadness!!!!!!!

Image

Meet my collection. Jealous? ;D

I went through the exact same process as last time, except that I got a chance to flash my card and have it signed….which i did not know they would do ๐Ÿ˜ฎ APPARENTLY THEY HAVE A REWARDS PROGRAM. On my third visit…I get a free Zipper pull!!!!! HELL YEAH, and i thought getting stickers was pretty damn epic.

HEY, EPIC BUCKETLIST GOOD NEWS. I asked the people who were stealing my life liquids about volunteering there. Apparently all the volunteers do, is hang out around the cookie and juice area.

I.CAN.DO.THAT.

But we shall see whether or not my commitment/social anxiety will let me take part in this new venture. Also, with my recent time restraints due to work and my week off/summer vacation from school ending today…it never looks to good :C

A quick note, I hope everyone who reads this goes and donates blood but be careful.

Do your research on what to eat and drink BEFORE and after your appointment. I knew what to do before hand but chose to ignore it because i am super woman and can do anything. BAD CHOICE MKAY?.

Instead of drinking 2 litres of water and eating 3 hours before, I drank 2 litres of dr. pepper (which dehydrates you) and nibbled a on tofu (very high in protein and other good stuff that you need to replenish blood). Needless to say that night I nearly fell over in my kitchen.

Yup, it lasted several hours despite me drinking a shit ton of water because i DID NOT prepare enough BEFORE I went.

ALWAYS PREP BEFORE. MKAY?

Not much else happend since i last chatted with you. I went to my bosses retirement party (where ironically i ended up working more than enjoying myself LOL EVERYTIME)

I will miss her allot :C sadness.

BE SAFE EVERYONE

Greetings possible stalkers!

SUMMER HAS ARRIVED and the weather has been glorious!!!!!!!

I have completed my finals and am looking forward to more bucketlist activities! I really lucked out this semester, my prof was sick on the day of our final critiques (which is like the art students version of an exam, except you have to stand up in front of your peers and fight tooth and nail in defence of your work for 20 minutes), so I DIDNT HAVE TO DO IT. BREW HAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

And yes, I actually went “brewhahahahaha” and danced like a moron to the amusement of my classmates.

Then, i proceeded to write things like “YAY” on the white board and dash off with a friend to buy 10 loaves of bread.

Yup. My life in a nutshell right there. ๐Ÿ˜‰

On the religious front…I have not been able to go to church unfortunately. My amazing workplace of amazingness has needed me to work full weekend shifts. WHICH I ADOOOORE TO NO END, especially during the summer when we are busiest. I love to meet and talk to new people about art and help to support our local talent. I am OVERLY passionate about it, some people I come across even notice how into it I am. HAHA….I hope thats a good thing…XD (crazyobsessedpersontype)

My scriptureย study, unfortunately has been lacking…and as for resisting the ambrosia which is coffee…does coffee crisp count? If so…I BLAME THE EASTER BUNNY.

Last Saturday the missionaries visited my work again :). Once again while my trainee was unable to make it…i think she’s starting to think they dont exist. LOL.
They were funny, lining up to listen to an audio piece we have about the sexuality of fast food advertissing. HAHA. Unfortunately we got busy really fast and they left fairly quickely, probably so as to not feel as though they were bothering me at work lol. Which they never do, they are the only bit of church I get lately XD. Oi.

Moving on, i mentioned last post that i was able to take part in an arts rally/rock concert type thing. It was partially put on by my amazing painting teacher and she encouraged us all to take part by writing poems and attending. It was allot of fun but unfortunately it was held outside on the green…in freezing weather. Allot of people showed up and I was surprised by how many passer by’s stopped to listen on their way to class. We are not a very social university…but…that could be said for the entire town really…

What else, what else? It has been so long since i have updated you all I feel a little perplexed with going ons! HAHA

I have not seen my friends in a very long time. THEY HAVE ABANDONED ME >:C
I KNOW AT LEAST ONE OF YOU MUST READ THIS.
Oh well. Haters gonna hate. >:C

Bucketlist wise, I have started page 2 today of my comic book and am trying to get people to go roller blading with me before our coastal weather decides it no longer wants to stay decent for me.

Also, I am attempting to get a group together to visit our local carnival type thing we have here called “Playland”. It has changed allot since I was last there, way back in grade 7 and I have been attempting to plan the trip for several years now. However, my friends hate fun and are not very accomodating to my needs (OBVIOUSLY ๐Ÿ˜‰ ). HAHA. Maybe now with my bucketlist and all the amazing support they have been giving me as i try to cross off more stuff, we will make it. I hope so ๐Ÿ˜€ I love arcade games. HURRAY FOR PROGRESS.

ย And with that I think you are pretty much all caught up.

It is weird to think that it has been one entire month since my cat passed away :C
It still feels like it only just happend. weird.

ANYWAYS have a happy Friday the 13th ;D (again…did you know we also had one this january???? SPOOOOKY)

Stay Lucky

Hello fellow addicts of the reading about the pointless lives of individuals eons away (aka the internet)!!!!

I think i have a cocoa addiction…(to be fair I AM female ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) because this hot chocolate phase is getting a little ridiculous…and may i add, fattening.

Where has time been disappearing to lately??? Already the date in which i can sign up for my next semester of classes has arrived and boy am I BEHIND!!!! So many choices, so little money.

I was in such a rush to get off to the bank today that I poured my usual Tea but then accidentally abandoned it…and i think i am finally getting sick of having mint EVERY day. Which is strange because as you know by now i am a distinct creature of habit. I may need to investigate another mormon friendly alternative, suggestions are always more than welcome.

HUZZAH! FINALLY I have begun working on another bucketlist item and I owe it all to you! my Bloggy readers! Because without you, there would be no guilt about having absolutely nothing to write about besides “Today I got up at 5am…again and pigged out on chocolate nommyness…P.S. I now weigh 200 pounds, SEXEH”.

I have Begun the epic tale of “OMG: Quails and Ants” the comic book.

I was able to complete page one just last night and IT TOOK ME 4 DAYS TO COMPLETE.

Each Cell (aka drawing, square, panel thingy) takes me about 4-7 hours depending on how detailed it is.

Luckily i am somewaht cheating and using the 70-something page comic book I wrote when i was in highschool, so the storyline is already there and so are most of the poses. HUGE TIME SAVER I TELLZ YA.

Now I know you are all probably thinking, “shouldnt you be honoring the Bucketlist by starting something from scratch?”.

NO. SCREW YOU, there is not enough time in the day for me to write out an entire storyline when all my awesomeness is being sucked out of me from school. LOL

Also, inking this comic and reworking it has been on my significant to-do list for a really long time, it is one of the many reasons why all i wanted from my parental unit for my bday last year was a scanner :D. WHICH I GOT.

So! without further ado, here is page one. Be warned, it is not a comic “strip” style comic. But rather an on-goinh storyline style comic. So without many more pages it may not be as interesting as it should be. I will get on page 2 asap ๐Ÿ˜€ ENJOY.

In other news! I GOT MY BLOOD DONOR CARD TODAY. *Hops around excitedly*

This will make things SOOOOOOO much easier when I go to donate blood again at the beginning of May ๐Ÿ˜€ *Flash’s card like a pro*

I am hoping i can rope more people to go with me again ๐Ÿ™‚

Unfortunately not many of the people I know can actually donate due to medical reasons :C BUT I SHALL GIVE ENOUGH FOR ALL OF US. After all…I AM O+ย ย Yup! I sure am badass. I was very impressed with the nice little package the canadian blood donor people sent me. Had my caard and a little bit of information about my blood type. For future reference the card looks a little something like this: (Image was pulled off of google, so name and number etc are naturally different) ย 

if you are interested in donating at all, I really suggest you that you just go for it! you have nothing to lose really and it is a great experience (and free cookies!).

I am still also looking into volunteering, but to be honest I havent had the best mind set lately to do much of anything. Honestly, I am a little afraid that I may be falling back into some bad emotional habits.

Only time will tell I suppose.

Off to watch some very disturbing episodes of “My Strange Addiction”:

The hardest part about writing blogs is writing the title. You always want to call it something that brings to light what will be discussed and yet you dont want to make it so obvious that no one really needs to read it in order for you to get your point across. At times it can be very frustrating.

I am sorry this blog is a little late, but it was a busy day on the 19th! Which, is awesome because I have more interesting things to write about! HUZZAH.

I got up at 8am and went to school to work on some photo four 18×20 prints and to be honest, I was feeling super depressed. I was missing people (a certain hunky people who does not know I exist), was just plain lonely, my photos for my two final projects are NOT working out and I dont have the money to buy the 4×5 film to redo them. But above it all, I am still severley missing my cat :C (I KNOW. I am forever a sad cat lady)

Not to mention I have some work worries in my present and my future. *Le Sigh*

So when i had finally given up on my photography after spending about 6 hours locked up in the dark room, I made my way to the grocery store and bought a punch of mozerella cheese strings to pitty binge on.

AND NATURALLY I chose to text share this with my bff. (Because thats just what you do when you are about to cheese binge and your a female)

WHO INVITED ME TO DO SOMETHING SOCIAL.

Alright boys and girls, whats black and white and requires me to be social?

Ill give you a minute to come up with an answer :3….

THATS RIGHT. MY BUCKET LIST.

Image

“LETS GO SKATING, MY TREAT” She said, after reassuring me it was super cheap…WHICH I LATER LEARNED WAS A LIE. I KNOW YOU READ THIS. ——>LIIIIIIIIIIIAAAAAAAAAR.<——

A LIE TO GET ME TO GO AND LET HER PAY. (I have an issue with being uberly frugal, but i didnt feel to bad, considering a couple of my friends won a TON of money gambling recenlty…grrrr jealous)

So, I finished my shopping (cheese included) and even bought a 99 cent flower for my kitties grave, which made me feel a little better oddly enough….does this make me weird? XD HA. Probably.

Then I headed home and waited for them to come pick me up.

They were late, as usual so I nommed down hard on some mozzarella ;D until they came and we headed down to the local wave pool.

It was allot of fun! I have been wanting to go skating for a really long time. The last time i was there I was in Brownies LOL. I thought I would catch on right away because I am a huge roller blader (though, not a good one, but i consider myself decent…in a cautious kind of way HAHA)

NOPENOPENOPE It is NOTHING like rollerblading. In fact, about the only thing I could actually do was make little circles….and when I say LITTLE I mean, literally, me spinning in place. LOL

However, It was a decent workout, I have had better of course but any workout is better than none ๐Ÿ˜€ and i did learn what a tremendous skater my Friend/Friends Boyfriend is 0-o

ALTHOUGH, he could have been a little less show offy….that troll.

Image

After awhile my bad knee started to give out so I had to slow down and take a break now and then, but I was determined to skate for as long and as much as possible in order to get the most out of the experience ๐Ÿ™‚

My knee has actually been really good the last couple of years so both me and my BFF were surprised it was being unruley.

After skating we all agreed that perhaps we were being to healthy and decided to renew our lost calories by having a taste-gasmic dinner at the old spaghetti factory ๐Ÿ˜‰

My newly rich friend was AWESOME enough to pay and fun was had by all. I got the ImageManicotti…always a fave…why they insist on garnishing it with parsely…I will never know.

By 9:30 we were full and had filled out a comment card on the awesome sexiness of our server Ryan (total stranger) and headed to their house aka our clubhouse to pet their new kittens!

To my surprise, more than one of their cats had a litter XD HAHA. They must have over ten furries running around that house! PLUS CHICKENS OUT BACK.

Unfortunately I was wearing my black jeans….never a good idea in a house where the air is thick with white fur.

They literally float around in tufts. LOL

And with that my good friends I bid you ado. It is 4am now and when i got home from all this adventure…I made the mistake of pigging out on more hot chocolate. (Yes, I think i have a problem) Since my stomach doesnt digest junk very well, this was not the greatest idea I have ever had (especially since it doesnt handle pasta or cheese very well either LOL)
