probably the most depressing day i've had in a while... it sucks.
27 August 2006 @ 12:14 pm
Finally I've healed! After a week of eating blended food and nothing good, I can finally chew!! It feeeeels good. I actually ate bread today and didn't feel pain.. lol.

Anyway, my two weeks in Ottawa so far have been smooth sailing.. went shopping every day for the past 4 days and ended up blowing so much money. I got a new purse though and i LOVE it.. wait no i'm obssessed with it. I also picked up a few shirts for cheap, another hat (angora too.. and only $7!), a few necklaces, a sweater.. I can't stop shopping. It's weird because I actually don't like shopping very much but its been a favourite pasttime for the past month or so. I've got to stop spending money.. at least I'm not a brand-name whore or I'd be bankrupt. It's been soo good seeing everyone too.. my friend Gillian who got married in December is now 4 months pregnant! We actually went shopping for a baby jacket the other day.. it's so weird b/c she's the same age as me (and kinda scary) but i'm really happy for her. It's what she wants. Also, i'm completely in love with Helena.. haha. Her mom supposedly thinks that we have a lesbian relationship. Honestly, she's one of the few people in my life that I can count on 24/7.. no matter how many weeks/months we go without talking, nothing ever changes between us. And if they do, it's always for the better. It's weird because I hate long distance friendships.. they always get worse and people change but with her, everything is always stable and perfect. Ahem, I can see why her mom thinks we're so retarded together. lolol. I also got to see Jin finally! He's back from Anaheim and it was sooo nice to be able to hang out with him again. He's one of the better influences in my life and i'm so glad that he's going to be back in T.O next year. Weekend visits with him and Deej! :)

Yesterday, my dad and I went over to Rachel's family house for dinner. Hmm.. it was a potluck so i made vietnamese spring rolls and they were soo yummy. It took forever but well worth it. After dinner, rach and i went to walmart (see? shopping again) and bought a whole bunch of useless stuff. It was near South keys so I called up nishu and he was actually one block away. I got to see whisky! My all time favourite dog and he got so fat and chubby.. still adorable though. I love my kitty more though. I finally took 'Genevieve' to the vets.. and its DEFINATELY a boy so i think i'm going to rename it Sylvester. (AKA tweety's best friend.. haha) CATS ARE EXPENSIVE. Holy crap.. with all the shots, nuturing, deworming.. it came to about $410.. how crazy is that? I guess I'd rather he be healthy later on then not.. I really love him. It's crazy how an animal can make such a difference in your life so fast. I'm glad Betcy's bf is allergic to cats! lol.

So.. one more week in Ottawa and I'm back in Hamilton. I actually wish i had more time. The whole time, I thought i would be hating it but my dad and i are getting along soo well that it's craazy! I think my mom not being here makes it alot less stressful since she's more uptight about everything. Plus, I still haven't seen alot of people yet.. and there's no time!! I have to spend as much as time w/my mommy when she gets back from China and i've also gotta go see everyone else. (PS elaine i miss you, lunch monday.. we still on?) Not enough time!!! If i didn't spend so frickin' long healing.. I could have done everything I wanted to. I technically don't have to leave Sept 1st but Damian Marley concert! My parents are angry that i'm never home and i'm leaving so early.. espiecially since school starts on the 7th. Oh well.. more time to "get ready" for school. And by "get ready", I mean party!! I'm excited for the first week.. frosssh! No school, no work.. just funn :) Although i'm also anxious to get back to work, make some money.. see everybody! And believe or not.. actually talk on the phone with alumni. (Deanna, i know, i'm pathetic) hahaha.. i enjoy my job :P

Anyway.. going to go practice some driving with my dad. I've been driving around everywhere in ottawa and i think i've gotten alot better. Hopefully i can pass my G2 with one go. My mommy's coming back tonight = loads of presents from China. I'm soo excited. WOah.. this is a much longer update than i intended. Oh well.

I have to say this is the worst week ever! I'm in constant pain.. and getting your wisdom teeth out while you have a horrible cough/cold is not a good idea. I feel like the weakest person right now.. i'm always so tired but i can't sleep for more than 2 hours at a time b/c of the pain. I can't eat b/c it hurts every time I open my mouth and my tongue/gums feel so weird b/c I can't brush my teeth!! Argh.. i feel so uncomfortable. Plus i have this headache that won't go away.. no matter how many T3 and Advil Cold & Sinus I take. I feel like the whiniest person right now but i don't care, i just want to be heallled. I'm so glad getting your wisdom teeth out is an once in a lifetime thing, i don't think I could handle it again.

I really miss Hamilton.. although Ottawa isn't as bad as I thought it would be. After i recover, i'm going to go out and see some friends.. and spend as much time with my dad as possible. I think we're getting along okay right now and I really want to bond with him this summer. My mom's gone till the 27th so plenty of time to really talk to my dad. :) I miss work.. I sound completely pathetic but I actually really want to be on the phone right now.. chatting away and being with people i heart. Good news though! I get Genevieve aka Meow Meow in less than 24 hours. Ryan and Kyi are being amazing and driving the cat all the way from Hamilton for me! (well.. they're coming to Ottawa anyway but still) I can't wait.. I just hope to God that my dad isn't allergic.. I don't think he's been around cats for 15 years now. Anyway.. head is pounding so I'm going to try and take a nap. Toodles.

It's so weird how I haven't updated for over a month and the first thing I'm going to write about now is Muskoka. (which is pretty much where I left off in my previous post) I guess I've just been extremely busy with writing my two exams and working every day, I never have time to even sit down and have decent msn convos. I get distracted too easily. :P

Anyway, I had just about the best weekend so far this summer. I went up North to Muskoka with Melissa and Sam to see Johnny.. it's odd because I had really high expectations for the weekend (stemmed from may 24) and usually when that happens, it never turns out the way I want. It definately worked out perfectly this time. A well deserved break for sure.. We got there around noon on Saturday, hung around the dock then took a boat ride down to a pub to watch the FIFA game. Brazil vs France... P.S. $#@%!$#@! fucking French... I'm soo mad at that game, it was ridiculous. BLAH anyways, decided to get drunk right after b/c i was so upset and did just that.. Had an entertaining night but got sooo bitten, effing bugs. Had alot of funny convos with Sam & Johnny about jeopardy... marco? polo?. LOL. It was a late night but somehow we all ended up waking up at 7am in the morning, I guess drinking does that to you.. just to make the hangover 100x worse. BOO. We went out to breakfast with his dad and he took us for a huge boat ride about Bala Bay. We came back, started drinking & smoking, hung out with his family and went swimming/fishing off the dock. It was crazy.. I can't believe how long it's been since I last swam.. and i SUCK. I needed a life jacket, can you believe that? And it deflated half way back from the floating dock and I started panicking, for a min I thought I was going to die but then realized that I knew how to float! It was kind of a hilarious situations if you think about it. Haha... anyway, I took a huge nap after that and woke up to play poker and ate some bbq. Then, sam and melissa took a nap and me and Johnny went to his island to go fishing.. didn't end up catching anything which blows but hopefully.. someday. haha.. spent the night just hanging out with his brothers and laughing at stupid shit...nonstop, literally. The whole weekend was just really funny.. so many classic moments. Too many mosquitos. Too many beers. Not enough sleep. Too much MJ. Too much food. Just the right amount of fun :D Damn, when it comes down it.. you just want to be with a few people you love, rather than a whole group of people you like. I actually MISSED the cottage when we were driving away.. definately need to go back before Ottawa in August. :) hehe.. i ramble too much about Muskoka, but ohhhh if you only knew how great it was.

Eeeek... i start driving school tomorrow at 9am. I'm soo nervous, wish me luck. I hope i'm not a stereotype asian-woman driver.

This has been one of the best May two four weekends I've had. Actually it IS the best. Sam, Louise and I went down to Johnny's cottage in Muskoka, I can't even begin to describe how nice it is down there. We were right beside Muskoka Lake and travelled pretty much everwhere by boat. We had barbeques every night, helped his dad clean his boats and got paid by 2-24 of beer! It was awesome not having tv or internet to distract us b/c we got alot of good conversations in and just relaxed on the docks. I even attempted to fish but no luck whatsoever.. everything was amazing! I'm hoping we'll go down again in July, it looks hopeful :D We went to to his island and it's soo nice.. 18 acres of woods but it was so relaxing. We played poker almost every night, I almost won the first night but i got kicked out by a flush when i had a straight. Boo.. We picked up twigs for a huge bonfire... etc.. so many great moments. I wish i captured more of it with my camera but completely forgot to take nice pics.

I'm currently obssessed with the song 'Matisyahu - King without a crown'.. i've associated it with the weekend. It's my muskoka song, lol.. Jewish reggae? So weird.. but it's a really really good song/album.

I have a midterm tomorrow night and I haven't even started studying.. plus I have to work till 10pm today and I feel completely lazy. :( why the fuck am I taking summer school??!

ME AND CHRISTINE JUST GOT TICKETS FOR BEN HARPER & DAMIAN MARLEY AT THE MOLSON AMPHITHEATRE !!!!!!!!!!!! ahhhhhhhh i'm going nuts. I'm soooooooooooo excited I can hardly contain myself. The seats itself aren't bad for $45 and I'd pay twice that much to even get a GLIMPSE of damian marley anyway. I'm sooo happy right now.. I can't believe he's only making one stop in Canada and it happens to be downtown Toronto :) Woo.. it's too bad he's only opening for Ben Harper (even though he IS amazing as well) because damian marley is much too talented to be just an opener! Ahh.. at least I get to see him :) I just downloaded his second album, Halfway Tree.. soo good. I think i'm going to pick up his first album from a store soon b/c I want to actually support him. This will be the first time I've bought a CD in 6 years.. crazy. I can't wait.. it's September 2nd so it's right before school starts. :D:D:D:D:D I"m counting down the days.. hehe

Anyway, things have looked up a bit. I feel much better than I did a few days ago. I think i'm realizing that my actions DO have consequences and I should really watch how I handle this situation. I don't want to make a mess of it so I have to figure out what I really want for myself and not go into anything blindly. I tend to do that alot b/c I always want to live for the moment but in this case, it would be a very very bad idea. I hate talking in code but there's really no other way. Maybe i should stop talking about it period.

Anyway..I have a midterm and an assignment due next week. I don't have to go into work tomorrow since it's Mother's day so I'm gonna dedicate it to studying for my geo midterm and working on some of my economics assignment. Hopefully, I can get 1/2 of it done before Grey's anatomy season finale tomorrow! I'm contemplating whether I should go and watch it with work friends or just have quality time with myself. Eva and Sam are both at home tomorrow with their moms and Ny's in ottawa with charlie so I'm gonna be all alone :( I kinda wish we had work, lol. Ooo.. I got a $3000 pledge at work the other day, I was so happy. The couple were NONs too which meant they've never donated to mac before! Even though it was pure luck, it still felt good that people were congratulating me. For the first time, I felt like I was actually good at this job :) I really hope I get more than 1 day shift this summer then I can make Saturday a swing shift. It's soo hard for me to wake up in the morning and buses suck on weekends. I definately need to make more money!! I'm so broke right now :(

Next weekend is May 24.. I think a few of us are going to go up to Johnny's cottage. I finally get to see his pugs, which is exciting and plus I don't have work all weekend so it works out nicely. Sometimes, I wish I could be in ottawa with nishu, elaine, jenn, etc., I miss them so much :( This summer started off so horribly wrong but I think it's made a good turn in direction. I have all summer to look forward to the concert and plus, it's going to be awesome with all the people at work and all my wonderful housemates. I'm crossing my fingers that this summer will turn out the same as last summer :P

Okay, off to bed so I can get an early start with studying. Night !

P.S. I love how all my icons. :D
