9/13/07 01:05 am - Let her hair down

Ooooh~! Look at me, updating with... stuff. Sooo, I'm in Ontario, chillaxin at art school, hanging out with my roomies and eating A LOT of Nutella (MY GOD IT'S SO TASTY), but mostly I'm here to talk about THE METRIC CONCERT I JUST WENT TO. I am frothing at the mouth a little bit, teehee!!!

... Okay. More intelligence, please!

EMILY HAINES! She's so wonderful. In lieu of her usual black mini-dress (at first, I was quite upset she wasn't wearing a short skirt, because I'm a big creep), she was wearing some weird black t-shirt that was sort of a dress because it was quite long. And then instead of pants, she wore shiny silver tights! And cute green wedge heels. FOXY. She has the greatest legs on the planet. ...Um, anyway. YEAH. She looked so gorgeous, and she was really happy! When we saw her in Saskatoon, she was... well, clearly inebriated, but this time (even if she was drunken) she danced around on-stage and smiled at everyone, it was wonderful. She even told the bouncers that were standing in front of the crowd that they could go away, because everyone was pretty tame, and she wanted people to start jumping and getting into it. IT WAS FUN. FUN FUN.

And they played almost entirely new songs, which made me TOTALLY EXCITED for their new album, whenever it comes out. Eeeee! And they played "Rock Me Now", which I was not expecting!!! OOH. And other goodies, teehee, oh man, it was a sweet time. And Tara and I each had a drink (we had to, because we are legal! Yay), so we were feeling pretty happy throughout the whole thing, it was good fun.

And I bought a green Metric shirt and a copy of Grow Up and Blow Away, yay! I spent more money than I should have, but the concert ticket itself was only 5 bucks, HA. I'M COOL.

Lalalalala, I don't know if any of this is of interest, but I thought I'd write it down anyway, for my own... stuff. You know.

Um, anyway, yeah, school is pretty good thus far. I'm still really excited that I'm actually here! It's far away from home, but so far I haven't freaked out about it or anything. It really helps that my roommates are all so cool. I wasn't expecting it, but yeah! Aside from Tara, there's three other girls (which means five girls plus only one shower, haha), and we all get along! It's lovely. Every day for the first week, we all ended up sitting together around the dinner table just chatting away for hours, it was really comforting. And yay.

So, because I have no class tomorrow, my plan is to get up, bathe myself, eat something (likely covered in Nutella), do some homework, go for a nice walk, buy some meat (hurr), go to the school library, and... do other... things. That's all I've got so far. Yes yes.

Also, I've started listening to Cold War Kids. I really dislike their name, because... whenever I say it, I feel a little more pretentious. But I like them! So, I suggest them to all you homies out there. Yep.

Oooooooh!!!! <3

1/8/07 11:12 pm - Destruction and Delight


Applying for art school!!! EXCITING! It fills me with both fear and delight... ahh. And, honestly, I don't really... know where I'd rather go, or even what I want to do with myself after art school. Blah.

So, for everyone's great interest, here be the schools I plan on applying to:

ACAD (umm... Alberta College of... Art and Design? Yes. It's in Calgary, which means living cheaply with parents, but also... living with parents. You know. We'll see.)

Sheridan (OMG. Um, It sounds beautiful and wonderful, but is really ass far away [in Toronto-]ish. And it's HUGE!!!)

Sault College (It scares me a bit, but it has an illustration program that sounds glorious!!)

...Max the Mutt Animation School (Shady, yes. But... illustration and sequential art program!!!11 GLORIOUS DEATH)

Um... I have nothing of importance to say. I'm excited, and am pushing down the choking fear of rejection and failure. Yay! Honestly, I think living with strangers/alone in a big strange city would be worth it to be cool in art school. Gah... it fills me with hope and joy. And I just won't think about leaving my bitches and hos behind (that being my sister, sexy wrestler roommate [PH33E FACTOR 4EVAR], and friendlies, oh yes and my cat, which would DESTROY MEEEEE). YAY!

Durr... and my copy of Strangers With Candy should be arriving sometime this week. BUAHAHAHAHA.

p.s. I love all you sexy bitches. <3

Hmmmyesss. It snoooowed so much today, and it was so pretty. Although I was half an hour late for work, standing outside in the lovely, quiet snow while waiting for the bus that never showed up was really nice. I wish I could have sat in the snow more today, but KeyMan called to me, you know.

... Hum... personal messages TIME!

Lovely Lally: Eh... you never check your lj, do you? M'idunno. Anyway. I really do mean to call you this week, urgh, and I miss you and think you're lovely. I don't suppose there's any chance you'll be coming up to the homeland (that being Saskatoon) anytime before you leave for South Africa, eh? OH, AND WHEN ARE YOU COMING BACK? There's a potential concert in your lil city that I think would be supafab if we could go together. *gnaws on hands* If you like Emily Haines of Metric, that is. *purr* Anyway. Love for you, my homie.

Claaara: I haven't seen you for thousands of years, so we should... be cool together sometime. Thankfully I spend all my days at the mall (HAHA), so I actually have amounts of free time to spend. Though I'm sure you're busy with nasty school, but... eh. I hope you're having a good time at U o' S, I keep hearing semi-bad things about it. Hmm... love.

Sibling: YEA YEA. "Girl, I can see yo' PANNIES!" hmm... cool. I probably won't see you in the morning! LOL!

Tinar: ... I probably won't see you either, lol. OH, HEY, AM I COOKING SUPPER TOMORROW? Hmm... I HAVE NOTHING TO SAY, U ARE A KOOL KID. And Uncle Dale loves you a whole lot. *wheeze*

Jan my Man: ILU! Hummm, you need to swing by our messy but still swingin' bachelor pad some time this weekend!!! I'm excited to hanG out wit you, homes. Whee.

Navi-bitch: So, any future plans yet? I heard a rumour you're thinking of Ontaaario, or something? Huh? Also, I think you left a scary skull/leather wrist band... thing here. We don't know where it came from, lol.

Jori: YAY. So, excellent plannings for this weekend, yes? *sparkle* I am delighted. Any ideas, yet? Durr. OH, DID YOU WATCH ANTM? Caridee is a complete babe. We should have an ANTM party sometime!! Awesome!

Beth: I haven't heard from you in ages... how's it going in your exciting school? I'm jealous of your adventures (though not of the Math...ness). And I'm excited for you coming hoooome, when will you get here/leave here??? Exciting!

Jillian: Yay, I'm still so delighted that you went to 'The Prestige' with me... it made me so happy. And I'm glad we went last night as opposed to tonight... *shudder* Whee. Wasn't Christian Bale attractive? Yessss, I thought so. Mmmmm.

Summer! I'm insanely excited for it this year, and I'm even willing to accept hellish temperatures and such. This may be because it hasn't been too hot yet, but we'll see.

1. Do yoga of some sort.
2. Go swimming with Jori!!
3. Dinner party!
4. Painting beautiful stuff that doesn't suck
5. Reading. This is a big step for me. HAHA LAMEZORZ
6. Picnic!
7. Watch movies (good and bad. Yesssss)
8. Set up and plan a giant project (a full comic, set of paintings etc... urgh, I need ideas of coolness) and FINISH IT.
9. Learn bus system. ... I suck, so much.
10. Go for lots of walks.
11. Night of debauchery!

So... I'm feeling a little emotional and intensely froofy right now, but... yay. I love everyone and everything (mostly), and I just wanted to mention that you are all wonderful and I have much love for you all (even if I don't see you too often and all that... stuff.) Having such fabulous friends and such around me makes everything wonderful and wow, this is just a little incoherent haha.

So, now I'm feeling all nostalgic and "AHH, I'm going to be old", but it's a good thing, you know. Basically, I'm really happy with the way my life is right now. I may be sucking at school and other semi-important things, but I'm having such a fab time with all of YOU and I can't really picture things being better unless you, johnny, were here living with me YOU BITCH. But yes. So much fucking love. Mmhmm.

So, all in all, you are all WONDERFUL, and you are all beautiful girls (no male friends for melanit! muahaha) that are talented and full of wonderful things to share, and don't feel down about stuff because you're too good for bad things. Yes, I make sense. I feel like I'm drunk or something. ON LOVE, hahaha.

... that's all I've got to say, really. Thank you all for being so wonderful! You are all full of love from me to you. ... HAHAHAHA, I'm so cool!!! Be happy! Live life so you and those you love are happy! That's the whole point, so do it! YES!

... I'm going to regret this tomorrow, but right now, I am content. <3

3/11/06 03:02 pm

Ahhhhh... mmm.

So, my delightful, beautiful, wonderful exchange partner Shiori left this morning. Ack. I'm trying not to be too angsty, but she was so wonderful and I'm going to miss her. We both cried at the airport because we're pathetic. I'll hopefully get to see her again in April, but since I'm not staying with her family... I don't really know. But, the girl whose family I will be staying with seems very cute. This morning she said something along the lines of "I wait for you to come to Japan" or something similarly adorable. Also, rumour has it that she likes the Beatles. ... I think we'll get along fine.

Speaking of the Beatles... johnny, you make me crazy. In a good way. But still crazy. *KILLS YOU WITH LOVE* You'd better be online sometime soon. *love-angst*

Bah. And now I have lots of homework to do that I really would rather not. Eh. I want to run around and distract myself, but I'm just so tired that I can't do it. But yeah, I'm cool. *rap movez*

That's all, children. *heart*

2/21/06 05:54 pm - You and me will all go down in history (uh, this song sucks)

Yay! I'm in a considerably better mood today compared to yesterday. Ugh, I'm such a moody loser... alaaaaas.

HAHAHA, my nomination speech is probably the worst thing that exists. Truly, it's... impressively bad. I can't wait to perform it tomorrow, it's going to rock. Rawk, even. *dances a bit*

I had glorious plans to go out and buy... cds and slurpees and things today (this tiny, hideous [I don't actually know what he looked like, I just assumed he was wretched] grade 9 boy bellowed something about slurpees when I was in the art room in 5th, and then I GREATLY DESIRED ONE), but it's cold and snowy. Angst. I will go tomorroooooooow before work!!!! ... If I'm done with the Muse painting things. Whoo.

... I'm oddly excited about painting the Muse mural. Not because I created it or anything (because... I didn't. heh), but because it keeps me away from home, which is nice. And it doesn't involve thinking, which I'm also a fan of!!! HAHAHA. Okay, time to finish nasty homework things and make room for dishes, drawing and other exciting things!!!! THANKS FOR LISTENING TO MY BLITHER, CHILDREN.
