HOLD THE PHONE ---> ROADKILL [Mon, Jan 19th, 2009 at 5:52pm

]
I have officially witnessed my first roadkill in action. 
Driving along.  Minding my own business.  When a not so 'sparky' squirrel bolted across the road.  Dodges the first car and runs straight into the big shiny wheel of a car running the other direction. 
I swear it was just running one minute and all of the sudden... sleep in midrun.  

Then I get to class and my lovely buddy throws me a pack of these...
 

That's right children... you guessed it. 
These are fruity-flavoured Trolli Road Kill Gummi Candies
They come in a variety of partly flattened snakes, chickens and squirrels for you enjoyment! 

If you can't resist running down moving animals, you certainly can't resist eating fun little flattened shapes of mini animals... previously in motion.


So remember kids:  animals are only 10 points if you hit them. 
Grannies in crosswalks are 80 points.

Im  bored and... at work.  Someone please give me something to do.  I always seem to end up with these jobs where I have endless amounts of time to sit on the comp and do nothing.  Sweet job but hella boring.  Anywho... in other news... yeah i gots nothing.  Well I did do a photoshoot with a new person! Woot! New faces =)  I think the photos turned out pretty good but it was kind of awk on set because we both expected the other person to be more prepared.  Anywho all in all... i ended up with a lot of photos to work with.  I'm really liking this new... i don't know you photoshoot.  I learn so much.  Hmmm anywho... i need money and PEMBERTON is in 2 weeks! Can't wait to get away.  I just hope I am able to find a new job by Aug 1st.  Hmmm well that is my bordum update.  And I know you all still secretly read LJ.  So photos from the latest photoshoot shall go up soon.  Once I meet with him and go over the proofs... they will be up =)

Peace out... send me something to kill the bordum. yo.

 Back in CANADA
Came back last week and... already planning my next trip. Seems like I can't ever stay in one place for too long. I come home get enough money and i'm on the road again. I like it though... I like being on the move all the time. When I stand still it seems like i'm wasting my time here. I just want to learn and see new things. There is too much out there and I need to steal a piece of it. 

On another note, my trip was amazing. It wasn't long enough (heh a month fails to be sufficient) but I am hoping to go back next year.  Maybe a little Asia Trip Part 2 action? My mom is planning to buy a condo in Manila thus giving me a place to stay and if I go back to my mom's hometown... we have a house that I am able to stay in. So accomodations are pretty much taken care of. I got super close with my cousins this time. I don't know why but it was different this time. I guess we are all older and we now have similar interests which is awesome but made leaving even harder. I miss them so much... sounds corny... but I feel like i'm missing something here... I guess it's true... my lack of family in Canada. Anywho next trip hopefully I can go for 3-6 months. So beginning April... let the endless working and saving begin.

Started school... 5 classes this round. Thought i'd bump up my classes and not work this semester. Everything seems to be fine but chemistry. Haven't taken a chem class in 3 yrs... I think this may be a problem. Seeing as I don't remember anything. oh man. Anywho... got a response from my applications to ontario colleges/universities. None of them accept out of province applications for dental hygiene... woot. not. So I have to scramble to find something to do for the next couple years while i'm on a lengthy waitlist. 

That was an update in a nutshell... Photos from my trip will come later
I know I promise that a lot but yeahh...

HOLD THE PHONE--> Naga City [Tue, Dec 25th, 2007 at 6:41pm

[ mood | content ]

  MERRY CHRISTMAS!!
Hope everyone had a good one.
I just wrote a whole entry that got erased ugh.  
I've finally made it to my mom's hometown to celebrate christmas. It's changed a lot since i've last been here. 
We had a family reunion on christmas eve with my immediate family which consisted of 50+ people. We had it at a resort (which apparently is really dangerous in that area because of MPA- the local rebel group) therefore we had guards 24/7 ... haha who ended up singing kareoke most of the night. 
I haven't slept in so long... my cousins and I decided to go for some drinks and a night swim which lasted until 6 am. 
Then we walked to a market to get fresh pasteries for breakfast.... came back. 
Ate. 
Watched a movie. 
Did some kareoke. 
Went for another swim + waterslide. 
Break for snacks and firecrackers. 
Took a jeepney back home which was a gong because it was slippery so we kept hitting our other jeepney. 
Made it back home for more food and festivities. 
No presents.... the best christmas i've ever had. 

I am seriously considering taking a semester in Manila.. trying to figure out if my credits will transfer and if I will have a place to stay. Everytime I come back it seems like im never here long enough. I'm always cut short. 

Well other than that I will leave you with one picture of my elf cousin who constantly follows me around and my other gong show cousins (more will come later.. too lazy to post others).

HOLD THE PHONE--> Bio Done... Stats to go. [Thu, Dec 13th, 2007 at 8:55am

[ mood | nervous ]

Done my Bio Final
Now on to Stats Final at 6pm tonight... Thus I should be studying but instead I sit on LJ unable to focus. 
So glad to have the Bio Final over and done with... was still pretty tough considering how much I studied for it (which was suprisingly a lot- strange, I know). 
I have to get accepted into my program.. the reason I have been a hermit during exam period. 
Stressing about my stats final which is tonight and...I haven't started studying... so plan is to cram all day go to exam.. finish at 9pm... be the happiest person in the world.

On another note.... 3 DAYS  
I am going to fucking shit my pants with excitement.
Christmas + New Years is going to be a gong show in a foreign country... so stoaked.

HOLD THE PHONE--> Just can't hide [Sun, Dec 2nd, 2007 at 10:07am

[ mood | content ]

Why is it that the more you try to avoid someone the more you run into them. Running into someone 8 times in one day... freaky.  Awkward when there are a possibility of 50 computer labs, you finally pick one and grab the only seat available which just so happens to be right beside the person you are avoiding! Funny how the world works like that. 


Centimeter of Snow + Victoria = Chaos  
It's sad how the only thing the Times Colonist can report is how much it snowed and how people fail at driving in it. 


Philippines = 13 days!
You think I should be concerned if a coup happened yesterday in Manila? I guess it would cause for concern if I see this driving into my hotel...

The politics in that country never cease to amaze me.

HOLD THE PHONE--> Mini Rant Plus Chocolate Almonds [Wed, Nov 28th, 2007 at 10:22am

]
[ mood | busy ]

 I find that the busier I get.. wait is that how you spell it? (I am officially going crazy)... anywho the more I feel the urge to update lj.. so here I am.. in between classes. This week has proved to be a challenge. I just need to get to the weekend... eventhough the weekend just means that I will have time complete the 50 billion projects, assigments and finals I have to study for. FUCK. 

Well thats enough of my rant.. no one likes to listen to a whinner. On the sunnier side of the fence.. I leave for the Philippines in 17 DAYS!! It will take me 2 days to get there (because of time change and my cheapness) and when I arrive my cousins have already planned a 'small' (aka not at all) bar hop with his bandmates. Then the next days are filled with shopping, sightseeing and drinking in Manila. Then off to my mom's small town, Naga. I am already tired thinking about it... but it will be worth it because I wont have anything to worry about. heh my cousins have promised that we will be somewhere different everyday because I don't have a lot of time there.

Anywho I think i'm going to take a mini nap in the library before my next class.
Peace out... eat chocolate almonds.

HOLD THE PHONE--> Break Time [Sat, Nov 24th, 2007 at 4:46pm

]
[ mood | stressed ]

So decided to take a break from my all day study sesh.. bleh. Finals are coming... among all the other projects. One word.. just one word... Stress

21 days and counting
until I can relax like no other. Missing the fam a lot lately and I can't wait to see them. It's been waay too long. Tis unfortunate that I won't be able to stay long... next time I guess. 

Ended up going to see Dragonette on wed... they were even better live! Loved them. The most serene republic was a let down tho.. too much stimulation. lol And mother mother was pretty good too... overall twas a pretty sweet show. 

Craving a photoshoot.. blagh hope I can catch a break soon. 

I've been thinking a lot about taking a full year off in the future to travel the world. I would have to work for a couple years to get enough to keep me going for a year but I think once I finish school and such.. I'm gonna peace the north american scene. Sneak off... maybe just disappear for a while. 

Well thats another lame-o update from this end of the rope. 
*cough* I am def not secretly addicted to Britney Spears song... Piece of Me... *cough*

So turns out I can't keep LJ updated... waay too much going on. Finals are coming up so .. stress begin. Photos have been put on hold.. hard to organize everyones time. At least there is a reward... 26 days! Philippines here I come.. woot. Seems like I can't shake the travel bug.. I am already thinking about where i'm off to after this trip. So many places... not enough money. blagh. Anywho... that is about everything in a nut shell of the last couple weeks. I'm hopefully off to sugar on wed to see mother mother, dragonette and the most serene republic... pretty stoaked bout that.

Cheers Kidies.

[ mood | stressed ]

Hella bored even though I have about a million things to do.. especially study for midterms. I can't wait til next week... things will finally calm down and I might actually have time to breath. On another note... so many concerts I want to go to... anyone interested? Ps. Not so much ghetto.. therefore that rules out majority of my friends. lol So far these are the ones in mind:

Wintersleep
- Sat, Nov 3rd Sugar Niteclub
Stars- Sat, Nov 17th Commodore Ballroom
Dragonette-
Wed, Nov 21st Sugar (I think.. or possibly Logan's)
haha So let me know if you want to be my non-ghetto friend and join me to these shows. 

Well other than that nothing else is new... Halloween is just one big shit show... as all of you have experienced so... you know where I will be for the next couple days. Peace out and Happy Halloween!

HOLD THE PHONE --> Tokyo Police Club [Wed, Oct 17th, 2007 at 10:38am

]
[ mood | tired ]

So.. saw Tokyo Police Club with The Virgins and The Meligrove Band... Freaking amazing. I now remember why I was so excited to turn 19... the endless amounts of concerts. The Meligrove Band was stellar.. haven't seen them live before and they were awesome. Tokyo Police Club obviously didn't let me down. The only down side to the night is that I left my visa at the bar =S Anyone know how I can go about getting it back?
