No Use

Monday, November 30, 2009
*goes outside to see if I accidentally threw my schedule in the recycling bin*

me: why'd you throw my bible away?
mom: it's no use

...your wedding picture is no use. It's just sitting there, you don't see me throwing it away. You have a cabinet full of Swarovski Crystals. That's no use. You have a closet full of clothes you don't wear. That's no use.

Just because I do not flip through my bible everyday, it doesn't mean it has no significance to me.

------
Oh, and now mom's making excuses. Her excuse? She was going to check through it before throwing my stuff away. What on earth does she mean by "checking through it" and was she ever going to ask me first? Hard to believe since it was thrown outside already.

MS Awareness Week/Busy?

Tuesday, November 24, 2009
MS Awareness Week has finally started!

The day started with us blowing up the fuse =) Okay, I suppose it wasn't that smart to plug in a popcorn machine and a portable hand washing station to an outlet that was already providing power for three laptops. Oops?

Anyway, if you want to find me, just follow the smell of fresh (and hopefully not burnt) popcorn.

He thinks I'm stressed because I'm too busy. Me? Busy? Never! I still see white space on my schedule!

...er, white space on some days anyway. Rawr =/

Food!

Sunday, November 22, 2009
I would make a horrible anorexic.

Out for dinner? Of course. Free appetizers? All over it! Dessert? Uh, duh. Drinks? Sure!

That pretty much sums up my evening. *scale breaks*

I know I can't complain because Stephen's schedule is always scarier but...

AHH! I'm not looking forward to the rest of November. Tonight, I need to finish the first half of a 45 (or so) pages project. Sadly, I only started it today. Horrible, I know. I only realized my schedule when I was talking to him and seeing when's the next time we have time to see each other. It doesn't look that bad on my calendar!

It's really just club stuff that's taking up most of my schedule. I'm not even that active in SMA either! I try to attend all the events, and I'm only planning the Charity Series. Oh well. Hopefully I'll lower my participation in SMA so I can start writing for The Peak (a student newspaper at SFU). Plus, I want to get on the organizing committee for the MS Society events that are coming up (MS Walk, MS Bike Tour, etc).

I need a social life too. I miss having one, but schedules conflict. Sadly, a lot of people I know don't maximize their time. I'm sorry, I had to point that out. I wish I went out more. I don't need to go out as much as he does, but I miss it. Although looking back, I never really had the social life I wanted to. I've always been bombarding myself with work, volunteer, and extra-curricular activities. (Hmm, maybe school should have been in the too.)

Since I mentioned school... I attempted to try harder in my courses this semester and it is evident in my results. I received an A and an A- on my midterms. *dances* I still have horrible study habits, but I notice that being attentive in class really helps. Yes, I realized that after 6 semesters in university. Fail. =P

I think at this point of my life, I need a good balance of school, community involvement, family, work, him, friends, and alone time (not in any particular order). Someone help me!

Exhaustion.

Sunday, November 1, 2009
I must admit that my November schedule is more free than my October, but I think I'm starting to go crazy. I just want to sit in bed, watch Bones, and munch on Halloween candy. Speaking of Halloween... I ended up waking up early to go grab some cheap ones. I managed to get my hands on a box of Hershey's bars before they were all gone. It was only $3.99 for 50 bars! Yummy.

Marketers' Night is over too. That was a good experience. We spent 4 months planning it and it was all worth it in the end. There was minimal networking done on my part, although I did manage to give away some of my business cards. I personally don't enjoy the process of networking. I can see how fake some people can be, and I try to steer away from that. It's a challenge sometimes though--especially when you don't want to be rude. Practice makes perfect!

Now that Halloween is over, I can start getting into the Holiday spirit. It helps that I'm doing the Christmas Charity series for SMA. This time I have a committee under me! Horrah for more man power!

UP! on DVD in 9 days... I'm excited, are you? =)
