Just had a melt. Kenzie started asking about what I liked to do with Christopher, what each of the family members got of his. I'm good with her asking questions but I haven't had a cry in a while and I broke.
I went to this christian meeting for young adults on monday night, Ian took me along (he is mitch's godson and living with them as well). This whole white rock community is so white, suburban and religious, it's strange, not many other cultures. I had a chat to Mitch's workmate today about how it's extremely multicultural here but none of the cultures mix. There is a Russian community, Indian community, asian, iraqi, anything and everything but all in separate areas.
So I went to this Christian thing and it was actually so fun. Real lovely people, found some swing dancers, one of the girl's knows the mountain biking so I'm going to hit her up, another runs a young adult mental illness support thing at one of the universities and I offered an extra pair of hands to help with anything. She mentioned putting up flyers and gave me a call this afternoon and has offered to take me round central vancouver, I'll get a day pass for the transit and we're going to have good times.
Coralee is talking about going to see Granny this weekend or next before the snow gets too much in the mountains which will be really good. I'm not sure how to contact granny though. I'm sure that will get sorted.

NCEA can go kiss my ass!
I am quite happy with these results
||[24 Feb 2009|03:49pm]
Hehehe, it's club day at uni.
I've joined several, but I can't help it.
Engineering without borders
EnSoc (engineering Society)
The Super Ninja Society
The French Society
THe CompSoc (computer society lol)
and Tai Chi
The Rec Centre (aka the gym)
I still have to join the UcanDance Soc.
I can't help but feel I want to join more just because it would be fun but it might be slightly excessive. Squash could also be fun. And I have friends doing it.
Yay for University.

Disney has me totally weirded out at the moment.
As much as I love it, the fact that an Ashley Tisdale song 2 times makes me mega lol
Okay, so in the chorus of He Said, She Said (this is hte most obvious part, but there are other changes)
In the orginal album version, Ashley is being all slutting (I use this term in the most affectionate way, really, Ashley *love*)
I can see us moving like that
I can see us touching like that
I can see us kissing like that
I didn't actually realsie these were the real lyrics cause I her album, but never imported it, and the version I have is Actually different.
In this version, shes playing it cool,
I can see us moving like that
I can see us dancing like that
I can see us chilling like that
she wants this boy, but they are a clean couple, they only move and dance together, but heaven forbid they touch or kiss. Beause givne the music video, that would be silly
And then we get to the Radio Disney Version.
For your information, when boys see a prettty girl, they should go oh, instead, they should go woo woo
And girls also cannot go oh when they see a good looking guy, instead, they must go What?
No, I am not kidding mes amies, Disney is that cool.
I'm no longer surprised it took Troyella to the end of their second movie to kiss, in fact, i'm surprised they were even allowed to touch each other, heaven forbin the scandalas messages they might send to the youth
I can see us being like that
I can see us dancing like that
I can see us chilling like that.
I do love Ashley Tisdale, she is made of win.
Don't even get me started on Jesse McCartney's Right Where You Want me.
I didn't realise you could change so much in 1min and 30s of a song.
Btw, Jesse is also made of win. I do like him. And sorry Janella, but current Jessie>Joe. Joe has not been pretty recently

I feel better now
||[26 Dec 2008|08:24pm]
I feel almost unbearably anxious
According to wikipedia and anxiety here are the following symptoms associated with Genreal Anxiety Disorder
They often exhibit a variety of physical symptoms, including
fatigue, fidgeting, headaches, nausea, muscle tension, muscle aches, difficulty swallowing, trembling, twitching, irritability, sweating, insomnia, and hot flashes.
I have a fair amount of symptons and have had them (though they vary in extremeties) for quite some time.
As hesitant as I am at online self diognosis, I can't help but feel I have an anxiety problem.
And it's kinda bad right now
I do admit that my levels fluctuate a crap load. Maybe I'm just overreacting like I do all the time

1. Pick 21(20 in this case) of your favorite movies.
2. Go to IMDB and find a quote from each movie.
3. Post them in a note for everyone to guess.
4. Friends leave comments with your guesses, strike it out when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie.
5. NO GOOGLING/using IMDB search functions. That's cheating and it ruins the fun
1 - Down big fella, I'm old enough to be your mother!
Mamma Mia - Caryl
2 - As you can see, the pseudo-façade was stripped away to reveal a minimalist rococo design. Note the unusual inversed vaulted ceilings. This is yet another example of the late neoclassic Baroque period. And, as I always say, "if it's not Baroque, don't fix it!"
Beauty and the beast - Jennifer
3 - You know how my mom can communicate with animals? Apparently they don't like being eaten.
Sky High - Caryl
4 - Half the people in this room are mad at me, and the other half only like me because they think I pushed somebody in front a bus, so that's not good.
Mean Girls - Caryl
5 - Imagine! My little girl... regular, at last.
6 - The garden club is rooting for you
HSM3 - Caryl
7 - More like a state of mind. She told me it's just beyond the meadows of joy and the valley of contentment. What is that all about?
Enchanted - CAryl
8 - Yo, Rugman! Haven't seen you in a few millennia. Give me some tassel.
Aladdin - Janella
9 - You've got an aesthetically pleasing configuration of hair that humans go nuts over.
10 - Treguna, Makoidees, Trecorum, Sadis Dee!
Bedknobs and Broomsticks - Jennifer
11 - Oh, you'll get used to it. It's just something you're gonna need to work on when the two of you get married.
Pokemon 2000 - Caryl
12 - Days turned into weeks, weeks turned into months. And then, one not-so-very special day, I went to my typewriter, I sat down, and I wrote our story. A story about a time, a story about a place, a story about the people
Moulin Rouge - Janella
13 - X:This is all my fault.
Y: Why? Did you teach him how to juggle?
Digimon:The Movie - Caryl
14 - Of course. I'm travel-size for your convenience. If I was my real size, your cow here would die of fright.
Mulan - Caryl
15 - I don't want to see my sister crash and burn... at least I think I don't.
HSM2 - Caryl
16 - X: Uggh, wait, are you trying to be "hip" again?
Y: Word to your mother.
17 - Gods of Thunder! Answer my call
18A - I never blamed you. Not once. You came for me. That's all that matters.
19 - Sallah, I said *no* camels. That's *five* camels. Can't you count?

Eugh, since when did I turn into such a depressed drunk?
EDIT: Year 12 friends, I implore you not to drink, or atleast don't get your feelings involved when you drink, wait, no, no drinking AT ALL

HSM3 was the best thing that ever happened to me
From Sharpay's ass shot, to the excessive sweating and arm pumping of Troy Bolton, it was amazing
I loved the songs (except the fact there was too mcun troyella and not enough Sharpay)
Just Wanna Be With You, High School Musical and I Want It All were my favourite songs.
I actually liked this movie more than the 2nd because it actually seems to have a different set up form the first 2 movies. Bad stuff happens, but its not as trashy as the first ones. I liked it. Alright, it wasn't perfect, but atleast it wasn't just the same plot with a different setting
Sharpay is still mean
Troy is still hot
Gabriella is still fake

Because I'm a wikipedia whore and can actually read about interesting stuff here
[A leap of faith is required of man in order for him to live an authentic life, not faith in God]
I finally have a statement which sums up what I belief
Existentialism Angst (ignore the angstyness of the name)
[A feeling you have when standing on a cliff where you not only fear falling off it, but also dread the possibility of throwing yourself off. In this experience that "nothing is holding me back," you sense the lack of anything that predetermines you to either throw yourself off or to stand still, and you experiences your own freedom.]
This explains my some of my thoughts so well
[some of us may choose to be heroic, even knowing that it will bring us neither reward nor salvation]
I believe in the Celestial Teapot
[If I were to suggest that between the Earth and Mars there is a china teapot revolving about the sun in an elliptical orbit, nobody would be able to disprove my assertion provided I were careful to add that the teapot is too small to be revealed even by our most powerful telescopes. But if I were to go on to say that, since my assertion cannot be disproved, it is an intolerable presumption on the part of human reason to doubt it, I should rightly be thought to be talking nonsense. If, however, the existence of such a teapot were affirmed in ancient books, taught as the sacred truth every Sunday, and instilled into the minds of children at school, hesitation to believe in its existence would become a mark of eccentricity and entitle the doubter to the attentions of the psychiatrist in an enlightened age or of the Inquisitor in an earlier time.] ”
[The reason organized religion merits outright hostility is that, unlike belief in Russell's teapot, religion is powerful, influential, tax-exempt and systematically passed on to children too young to defend themselves. Children are not compelled to spend their formative years memorizing loony books about teapots. Government-subsidized schools don't exclude children whose parents prefer the wrong shape of teapot. Teapot-believers don't stone teapot-unbelievers, teapot-apostates, teapot-heretics and teapot-blasphemers to death. Mothers don't warn their sons off marrying teapot-shiksas whose parents believe in three teapots rather than one. People who put the milk in first don't kneecap those who put the tea in first.]
[I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours.]
I also believe in the Flying Spaghetti Monster! Amen to Pasterfarianism!
Well that's my philosophical post.

I've come to the decision that yes, everyone was right that Classics is a ridiculous amount of work. Especially Roman Art and Architecture. I mean it's stupidly large
Here's my evidence
"It is important to identify for each part [of Hadrians Villa], the name, the origin of the name, location within the Villa, distinctive architectural features and features that it has in common with other areas of the Villa"
The parts we have to know are:
The Piazza D'oro
The Martitime Theatre
The Temple of Venus
Now wtf, that is sooooo much, and this is for ONE peice (Hadrains Villa, which btw is a complex of buildings) out of the 16 we have to know for Classics
We get given 3 in the exam and are tested on 2
How on earth am I supposed to learn 16 pieces of art when one of them is this?
Too much say I
