I'll spare you the caps-lock, but seriously, this is mostly being screamed. I've been doing this to people all day. (My poor roommates...)


Isn't that so exciting?!?!?! An entertainment site company in Vancouver hired me to write a book they want to turn into a movie. I CAN'T BELIEVE IT!! I'm a freelance ghostwriter! I'M ACTUALLY GOING TO BE PAID TO WRITE!!!

I can't even believe this!!

What have I been up to?

Not updating my blog, for one. I have so much reading to do now! Which is actually super great, but takes a ton of time. I calculated it for David Copperfield- I could read about a page a minute, so it took kind of forever to get through the whole book. (900 pages. Seriously).

Now, we're reading the Moonstone, which is like the first-ever detective novel, and really good!

For big news in sports:
WE WON OUR HOCKEY GAME! My team's never won before! I'm so proud of us :D

Also, won a game in Ultimate! And we had to play outdoors, in the rain, for two hours. It was so, so cold.

Not much else going on.. just tons of reading, it's really cold outside, 3 game days a week... it's all really fun :D

I'll also make a compromise - you be patient, and I'll do the screaming in lowercase.

1. Shakespeare and Renaissance
This! Class! AH! It is so interesting! Every single class I learn something absolutely fascinating about Henry V (currently reading this play) that I hadn't picked up on. I had no idea Shakespeare was so complex! We talked about how Henry is a Machiavellian figure, and discuss his actions and values and everything, and how he changes throughout the play, and I! Just! Love! This! Class!
2. Old English Lit.
I didn't expect this class to be interesting, I admit. The prof is this upper-middle-aged guy who just looks like he'll be boring. But then every now and then he says stuff that's really funny! He was talking about how some group of people appealed to another to help defend their city, and the new people stayed and "they wrote to their friends and said 'we found thsi new land and the people are defenseless- it would be just marvelous if you'd join us!'" Anyhow, I found that hilarious. Also, he makes all the history and stuff easy to follow. And it's super interesting- today, we talked about just how reliable any of it can be, when it was all written down, and all the writing was done by the Church, seeing as they were the only ones that knew how to write. So! Interesting!
3. Sociology
I'm definitely more into psychology, and not so much group-sociology-stuff, but this class is still interesting, and the prof is really nice and funny! Also, we're doing a bunch of psychology right now. Win!
4. Victorian Novels
I love this class! SO MUCH I CAN BARELY HANDLE IT. We're reading David Copperfield- which is such a great book! I'm only 600 pages in, still have 300 to go (BTW, I started it on Friday. Impressive, non?) and it's so interesting! The characters! Anyways, this prof is also super nice. She was all "it's so weird, right now I don't recognise any of you.. but by the end of semester, it'll be like you're all my kids!!"
5. German
Same prof as last semester, who was super nice. And I don't have a schedule conflict with ball hockey! YAY!

Also, sidenote, I had a backpack today - usually this semester, I have a really cute Canucks purse thingy that I use - because I was going to the grocery store and stuff. (No Frills! SO CHEAP WOW)  Anyways, it made me feel like a high school student! I can't believe I graduated two years ago! Also - I'M TURNING TWENTY IN THIRTY THREE DAYS!! I'm pretty severely flipping out about that.
(Dude! Twenty!) 

Also, ball hockey and Ultimate start this weekend!
And I think being in three different sports pretty officially makes me a jock. I like to think I'm the coolest person in my department. (And hey, we all know that's true).

Also, another crazy thing! My skates were TWO SIZES TOO BIG! I had to get new ones. The guy at the store was pretty mystified. (Also, he asked me if they were MY skates - no, dude, they're my boyfriend's, that's why I'm standing here explaining to you exactly what's wrong with them. Seriously. But it's okay, he turned out to be perfectly nice).

here's a picture out my window: also, I didn't realise I have an ocean view! Weird. I'm more interested in the mountains, to be honest.

(that pretty much sums it up)

I'm going to be number 29 on my ball hockey and ultimate teams!!

No seriously, that was the very important news. #29 like Aaron Rome! WOOO!!

Also, the captain was all, "we might even win more, since we've got a lot of people like you on the team, who play hockey."
Yeah, that's right - I'm gonna be a super allstar on this team!!

Also, I made these:

And I hate flashcards. But I figured that, well, in ten years of French, I've never given 'em a go, so why not?

On a sidenote, there is no snow and I am disappointed. I know I grew up without snow, and blah blah blah, but I had it last year and NOW I AM DISAPPOINTED!
(This may be passive aggressive anger diverted from being so very pale now. Well, whatevs)

I think I make too many lists

You may be wondering what on Earth I've been doing with all my time lately. Classes ended on the 2nd, and even then, I only had one class that day. That gives me exactly 18 days to take 4 finals. To reiterate: I have about 6 hours worth of exams to write. AND I HAVE 18 DAYS.
(Also, of course two of those would be on the same exact day. Do you know what the chances of that are? POINT THREE PERCENT.)
(Ironically, I learned that math from one of the classes I have a final for)

Anyways. Besides studying (which takes up roughly 80jillion percent of my time), this is what I do with my 18 DAYS OF UTTER BOREDOM AND EMPTY-CAMPUS-NESS
1. I've cleaned my room like 6 times. Unfortunately, it gets messy again a day later.
2. I just did laundry. (Ignore the fact that this is the first time in like, 3 weeks. I have a lot of clothes, it takes a while to actually have to do laundry out of necessity)
3. I made cake pops with my friend!
4. Hmm... I've also watched a ton of South Park
5. And Nip/Tuck, once. Won't be making that mistake again for a while. (Because - EEEWWWW!!!)
6. Hm. Hm. Hm. I've read a ton of blogs and stuff.
7. Did I mention I've seen every single episode of South Park ever made? Every. Single. One. And they're only twenty minutes each, so that didn't exactly take up much time.
8. I got my term paper for English back today - I got a CANADIAN A-. I am SO SO HAPPY WITH THAT!! Like, I told my friend, and she was all "...WOW..."
9. I went Christmas shopping..? Got like. One thing.
10. Tried to get skates... and the sales guy talked me out of it. I'm still kinda confused about that one.
11. I got an extra point on a test, and half point on the scientific reasoning midterm. He's really not a very good grader.
11. If you haven't noticed by now, this isn't a very long list.
12. And a lot of things on it are pretty boring.
13. And only took up about 30 minutes each, tops.

I'm basically bored out of my mind at this point.  SIX MORE DAYS!!

PS - I have a new mission in life: GETTING AUTOGRAPHED PICTURES FROM NHL PLAYERS!! Apparently you can send something and 3 months later, it gets signed! Possibly.

PPS- Reason # 875 that French grammar is super hard: They have an "adverb". It modifies a verb. For example, the word "vite" is an adverb. (I guess that means... quickly? Know what's super weird? I've started to forget the translations of words, and just know them like... if you see a car going fast, you just think, vite. WEIRD RIGHT?) Anyhow, know what else is an adverb? Let us not forget that it's adVERB. "Very" is an adverb. THAT DOES NOT MAKE SENSE.
"That car is fast" has an adverb. "That car is very" doesn't make sense. SO DON'T CALL "VERY" AN ADVERB. It's modifying an ADJECTIVE. It's an... adadjective. Or whatever. AUIOEFSWEUXPCU FRENCH MAKES NO SENSE SOMETIMES
