Winner!

Hmm, so it's been a loverly day. I s'pose. Well, let's back up a bit and do this in order.

Last night after work I went over to S.'s. We just hung out for a while, then went to Dairy Queen. After that, we went to Zeller's and Wal-mart to look for hats, because he doesn't have a hat. While I was at Zeller's, I bought an energy drink. I'd never had one before, so I was pretty excited. I got a Rockstar Juiced, because S. said they were the best out of what was there. First of all, it tasted awful. I could only make it through half. Secondly, it didn't give me any energy at all. Third, it made me feel ill. Within about ten minutes of drinking it, my stomach was very upset and I was very gaseous. This lasted about half an hour before I begin to feel better at all. So not call. anyway, S. was very sweet about the whole thing and did his best to make me feel better. I love him so much.

Anyway, this morning when I got up, my parents had gone out yard-saling. I made some pancakes, read the comics and did the puzzles out of three days of newspapers, and washed the dishes. My parents were just getting home then, and I had a shower. Then we had lunch.

After lunch, I sat down to write. This is the last day of June, of course, and I had a screenplay to finish. I did! I'm so pleased with myself. I knew I was going to make it, I barely struggled with this at all, compared to NaNoWriMo, but still, it was a good feeling. I'm happy. I love... everything! Yay.

Sparkling

Werrrrd.

So. Graduation was Wednesday. It actually went surprisingly well. The waiting around for an hour beforehand was the worst part, I'd say. My invocation went well, I got several compliments on it... EB's speech was really lame, which made me happy... I know that sounds horrible, but I just don't like her. Peter McKay's speech was nice... other people whined about it, but I enjoyed it. Anyway. I won a panther award... which didn't surprise me that much, actually, because I knew I had a lot of points. Buuuuut I also won the Queen Elizabeth II medal! That was crazy, I honestly couldn't believe it... I was totally expecting them to call JH's name... I was pleasantly surprised. Anyway. Even the grad song wasn't as bad as I had thought. And sitting through the awarding of diplomas wasn't too bad, CC was two seats away, and the girl between us left around the L's, so at least I had someone to talk to.

The reception afterwards was nice, lots of photos, lots of congratulations, and GV was there!! I was so happy to see her, since I hadn't in almost a year. It was good. And there was lots of food, gooey chocolatey food, the best kind.

So then it was off to White Point for SafeGrad, which was pretty good. The buffet meal was good, and the scavenger hunt was fun, JH and I tied for first with two other girls. Then we went swimming... it ws fun, we played ball with everyone, then invaded the hot tub... then we played 'water polo' which basically involved everyone screaming and jumping on IL. After that, though, it kind of died out. There was just a reeeeeallyyyyy lame magic show... and then the stupid auction, which I didn't have any money for... so, yeah. But it was good.

Yesterday I just stayed home and slept and worked on my screenplay... still have 1800 more words to write in the next two days! Eep! Ah well... tomorrow's Saturday, there'll be plenty of time for writing... I hope.

So today at work I just researched sponsorship programs, all day. And I hardly found anything. AGH! Oh well.

I might go out and do something with Steven tonight... I don't know... depends how I feel after supper, I'm still pretty tired...

Sunday is Canada Day, w00t! AS and SG and I are going to go out on the town. We figure something ought to be going on in Bridgewater... if not, we can always go to the duck pond and the playground and the lake. Yar. And there will be fireworks in the evening, if nothing else.

And I have Monday off. Schweet.

Soo, the Dean of Residence from King's called yesterday... said they had some single rooms left, and since I had paid early, they were offering me one. I surprised myself and said no. It's tempting, but, I don't know, it just didn't seem right. As much as I would love the privacy, without a roommate, I might never leave my room. And I think a roommate would be good for my sanity. Anyway, hopefully they'll still take into account my request to be in the Bays, then at least I can have some quasi-privacy.

Anywho... that are all. Bye.

Excitante

Work was semi-busy today. I'm sick of making labels, though. I'd also be just as happy if I never saw another business card again in my life. Oh well.

Today was the first day of course registration... I registered for my FYP courses, no problem, but the French is a bit trickier. I took the placement test, and it said I should take 1050, but if I get a 5 or higher in IB, they'll give me credit for 1045, which means I should be in a second year course next year. And for some reason their test didn't record my results anyway, so they said they'd get it sorted out once I took the test again and my IB marks come in. w00t.

Graduation is tonight. I can't believe that after twelve years, it's all going to be over. It doesn't even seem real yet. I'm pretty nervous about giving the invocation speech... I mean, I'm the first person to talk! Eep! Anyway, I suppose it will probably be very long and very sad and whatnot. But GV's coming down to watch, and since I haven't seen her in ten months, that is VERY exciting. I can't wait to see her! And Safe Grad should be fairly awesome too, I suppose. My grandparents are down from New Brunswick for it too, so they're probably at home by now; I'll see them when I get there.

Ergh, need to work on my screenplay.

Prompromprom!

Mmmm, it was sooo fun!

I spent all day geting ready... it was ridiculous... I don't think I've ever felt like such a prep in my life.. but oh well. I mean, I spent half an hour just plucking my eyebrows, and it took an hour and fifteen minutes to do my hair... although that was worth it, becuase it looked really nice.

Anyway, S. and his dad came and picked me up in the cadillac, and Steven looked so nice! He's even more handsome than usual when he gets all dressed up. The corsage he got me was really nice too, it's so lovely.

The barbecue at JH's was really fun... everyone was there and having a good time. The Hs really went all out fo it... sorbet to cleanse the pallette, spinach salad, burgers, chicken, pasta salad, a fruit tray, cheese and crackers, iced tea and punch, after eight mints, and ice cream with waffle bowls... although we were all wayyy too full for ice cream.

Then the prom itself... I loved the first hour of taking pictures and stuff, it was just silly... but then when we first went inside it was awkward because everyone was just standing around. But once SG finally showed up she wanted to dance, which meant I wasn't dancing alone so I didn't feel like an idiot, and then everyone else started dancing. Go SG! I spent most of the night with her and the IB nerds... and S., of course. I hardly saw LE at all... mostly because she and A have no ability to be together and be with a group at the same time... but whatever, as long as they're happy.

S.'s dad drove me home again afterwards... S. walked me to the door... it was very sweet. I wanted to go to LH's afterwards to watch Disney movies, but that wouldn't work since I had to come to work today. Oh, and so far - one hour and nothing done. Blah.

All in all, it was a lovely evening, although I'm not sure it was worth the $450+ that went into it. But, whatever, I guess that's how prom works.

Last day

Today was my last day at the library. It was fairly uneventful, as usual. I was working with Patrice, which was nice. If I'd had to choose someone to work with on the last day, it would have been either her or Barbara H. It's kind of sad to be done, but on the other hand, it's kind of exciting. That was the perfect job during the year, but I've kind of out grown it, it's time to move on to bigger and better things.

While I was there, I wrote over 1800 words on my screenplay. I was so pleased! This brings me up to over 17000 words... almost there! And I'm still over two days ahead, which is good, although I expect that from now on I'll be able to write enough every day. If not, I can finish up on Thursday when I've got the day off.

I'm so excited for tomorrow! Last night I didn't really care at all, I just wanted it to be next Saturday so I could sleep, but now I'm really pumped. Everyone's going to be there! I love it when everyone's there, not just a few people. And they'll all look so nice... I'll look so nice! It's just going to be so great. Although they're calling for rain in the evening... blargh!

Oh blog, I have so many things I want to write in you! So many, many plans! After next week, when there aren't exciting things going on all the time, I'll have to start writing about stuff othere than the daily events. Yay!

Prom - Jewellery and Decorating. And ice cream, of course.

So the jewellery hunt last night was successful! Which is good, because otherwise I don't know when I ever would have gotten it. We went out to Hunt's Point for supper, to that little spot that's supposed to have the best clams in the world. I don't like clams, but the fish and chips was good too. After that we went back up to Liverpool, to look at some jewellery that the 'rents had seen when they were there for their anniversary weekend. It was really nice, and I got the perfect necklace and matching earrings. I'm pleased. And the name of the store was Pirate's Cove, which made me happy.

I drove both ways last night, which was pretty intense. It was the first time in months that I'd driven for more than about a half hour at a time, and I'm really not used to the Saturn. Not to mention the torrential downpours...

Anyway, we got back to Bridgewater about quarter to nine, and I headed over to Steven's. I only had two hours there, and we didn't do much, but it was nice. I just like to spend time with him, I don't care what we do.

Prom decorating today was intense. There's soo much to it, even more than I thought... I'm actually pretty excited. I thought the city theme was going to be lame, but once they made it more of a park type thing, it's not so bad. Although I now hate gazebos, minilights, and red flowers. Honestly, LH and I spent at least four hours on that. Everytime we got something done, either someone else said it looked bad, or the lights stopped working, or things weren't the right length to get where they needed to be... so frustrating! Oh well, it's done now. I just hope people don't whine about it... I mean, I know they will. They're whining about the prom theme, safe grad theme, grad song, having grad in the arena, the speech-givers... everything! I just can't stand them. If I here any snide comments about the gazebo, I will punch whoever said it. I just don't want to hear about it.

I was also disgusted by the number of people who showed up. There were four teachers there all day, but only eight students, and never all at once. Considering there used to be at least fifteen at the decision-making meetings, that's really sad. Ms. Kelly said that was the smallest turnout they'd ever had for decorating. Especially considering that it was on the announcements for anyone that wanted to help, not just the Prom Committee. Pretty sick.

Oh well, I guess I just have to learn not to let those things bother me. People are like that, all I can do is ignore them and make the best of it. Either way, I'm exhausted. A six day work week, then working hard all day today, and work again tomorrow... blargh. I really should be working on my screenplay, but I just can't concentrate on it. I might just play some Tales of Pirates instead.

Oh, one more thing. LH and I went to the Tastee Freeze after decorating. It was nice, I hadn't been there in years! Just nice to chill and have ice cream after a tough day. Especially with LH, because she's such an awesome friend. ^_^

Sunshine Lollipops

Well, this afternoon was a little bit better. I went through the membership book and checked off the people who had paid... made some labels... organized some papers... actually wrote up my weekly report...

So at lunch time, there was this ridiculous thunderstorm. There were a few rumbles of thunder while I was still here at work. Boss and Co-worker are both scared of lightning, apparently, so that wasn't good. A few minutes after I got home, there was this huge crash of it, and then it started to RAIN. And I mean downpour. It was hailing too. My dog hid under the table. That lasted for about 15 minutes, and then it went back to gentle showers. Now it's bright and sunny. Crazy. Ah well, at least we didn't get the flash floods they were calling for.

It did, however, stop me from working on my screenplay. I got about 60 words before the lights started flickering and I decided to turn the computer off. Not cool. Especially since I won't get any done tomorrow. At least I was already ahead, anyway.

So, I just realized that tomorrow is the 23rd... stinky. I was looking forward to sleeping in, having a shower, and watching that movie I've had out from the library a week past its return date. But no, I have to go decorate from prom all day. Unless I do decide to be irresponsible and go to the Ami McKay reading instead. Still haven't made up my mind on that one.

Hmm. I seem to have so much to tell you right now! There's so many things that I want to write about, but I think I'll leave them until they actually happen. This will probably only last for a couple of weeks... then my brain will be empty and I'll only update every few weeks. Ah well.

And thus, a blog was born...

Hello, blog. I'm going to write in you.

It has been a very boring morning. It's surprising how little there is to do here. In the past three hours, I've read the paper, set up four e-mail accounts, and made a list of the things to put on my weekly report. Yesterday, by this time, I had packed up and itemized all the videos in the storage room. Argh.

On the bright side, I did get an official phone today. Which means I can answer calls... yay. It makes me feel special. And hey, I am pretty lucky to have this job. Sweet pay, sweet hours, and definitely looks better on a resume than working at some shitty little restaurant. Office assistants ftw.

Sooo, after work, mom, dad and I are going to go out to dinner and look for jewellery. Prom is starting to feel insane! It doesn't seem like it's only three days away. Anyway, after that, I'm going to Steven's. Which is nice, since I haven't seen him, or anyone, since Saturday. I miss people.

I miss AS... I was thinking random adventures would be schweet next weekend, but then I realized that she'll be in Newfoundland then. Well, maybe I can still get TM and SG to do something. That'd be nice...

Anyway, I guess that's it for now.

Keep on rockin'.
