Drunken Report   
01:30am 20/01/2007
  On request of Coach L... (kind of) I'm updating my blog.

I am currently: Drunk, Tired, Stressed, Drunk and Tired

Headed off to the Eng ball tomorrow night (Saturday night) with some friends, so that should be fun. If it's not, then we'll find somewhere else to go.

Why am I drunk? 2 novice boys, one Comp boy and on LWT woman.
Hudsons on Campus = sae 60 minute music track replayed throughout the night, wanted to dance, but kept up the shots so that dancing would be very late if it ever happened. I was kinda looking forward to it, but right now, I'm looking forward to bed.
Why I Love iTunes   
02:05am 26/11/2006
mood: thoughtful
So tonight was the ERC Awards and Banquet. First time since the break up that I saw Greg. I looked good. Navy blue corset, white cotton skirt, and highlights in my hair. IT STILL HURTS! DAMNIT! Time was supposed to make things hurt less... heal all wounds etc. You know.
well, Time sucks.
anyway, I came home, sitting here on my bed...wrapped in my duvet, attempting to write term papers and succeeding only in chatting with Jason, Jill and Little Laur.
I've got iTunes on, set on random, and this is what it spits out to me...In this exact order...

I'm Against It- The Ramones
I Still Haven't Found What I'm Lookin' For -U2
Second Chances - Stellar Kart
The Summer Of Our Discontent - Chris Wynters
Paper Bag -Anna Nalick
The End- The Beatles
Hide Your Love Away - Eddie Vedder

Honest To God. No Joke. SO Appropriate for my emotional roller coaster.
but yes, anyway, Banquet went decently well, no awkward silences (as far as I could tell) nobody (except Janice) asked, I won Coxie of the Year (and don't have to share it this year! YAY!)and my novice guys won U of A Crew of the Year from Jack. Yeah, all in all a successful night.
More when I figure stuff out. If I ever do.
Banff- apparoaching the end for this year

mood: artistic
Sunday morning...
Rehearsal at 10 am, have to be out of our rooms by 9:45. Anyway, all things aside, a synopsis of my last night.
After rehearsal yesterday afternoon, came back to my room, went to Banff townsite (just a quick slide down the hill)and did some shopping. heard some AWESOME Viola/Hooker jokes(Told by a viola player none-the-less). Then got back here, had dinner (mmm cottage cheese, olives, baby corn YUM!) Then went to Props pub to watch the game. Watched the first 2 periods all the way through, left for part of the 3rd (Horrible I know) and went and played "Name that Composer" with Michael and some of the string players. Headed back to Props and hung out for a bit more. Came back just after cerfew, chaperones seemed alright with it. So then I stayed up and talked to the chaperones for 2 hours, had tea with them which involved popcorn and rice... very strange, but still, good at the same time. Got up this morning, and I feel fine. breakfast was alright, eggs, bacon and fresh fruit. Off to rehearsal here right away. then concert and off home again. No real big drunken shenanigans last night, and... NO RYE!!!YAYA!

Banff Day 1- 1.5   
01:47pm 18/11/2006
  So... The EYO's Banff weekend got moved from Feb to Nov this year. So far... it's been interesting. Got here yesterday afternoon, all well and good did sectionals, did rehearsal. The food here isn't as good as I remember it being (almost EVERYTHING has wheat BOOO!!!!)finished rehearsal, put on some comfy pants and went down to Props Pub (about a 30 second stumble from my building this weekend) met a nice French guy named uummmm Nickel? I don't know. Talked to some guys that are doing renovations on the fitness centre here, one was born in PEI but raised in NFLD. I don't know if I've ever been happier to see Matty and Troy walk around the corner into sight. these 2 construction guys were Class A creepers. But... to my credit, I do think that I shocked them with my knowledge of Blattodea (cockroaches)and West Ed. I got told by the french guy not to Drink and Die... I think he meant Drink and DRIVE... anyway yeah.
Matty Troy and I sat around and chatted, Troy and I played some pool. it was good. EXCEPT FOR THE RYE!!! BOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!! (RYE has Gluten, Gluten = BAD!!) lol Matty and I didn't even make it back from the bar and the two construction guys were gone! HAHAHAHA Thanks for the Save Matty. I know I can always count on you to be a stand in boyfriend to get rid of creepers. Twila's a good wingman because she saved my drunk ass at pool. I definatly play best distracted, and worst when inhebriated. Headed to the bathroom and took a wrong turn before I got to the 2nd set of stairs. woopse.
Got up bright and early this morning.. 5am... why? Ask the RYE and my intestines. bleh. BRUTAL. Maybe I'll whip out the camera here today and take some pics to post. one more group rehearsal left, then FREE TIME!! I don't know what time the pub opens, but I'll be there like Share-ware.
OH! I also learned... that the coxie voice works on Stupid boys in the 2nd violin section. I think they're afraid of me now. heh... excellent.
Getting better   
07:40pm 10/11/2006
  Well, I'm glad to report that things are getting better. I had a great email from Jack today with some potentially EXCELLENT news! :) Got offered a part time job, got some important shopping done today... Some of you know what I bought, some of you don't but you'll see. Maybe.
Going dancing with my sistas and my couz tonight. Should be a gooood time.
The pain is starting to go away, so that's also a plus.
10:43am 07/11/2006
  Wow. What a crappy train ride. Ran in to Devon and Mike from Q.E. What a shitty way to find out that Sam has Leukemia. Why didn't anyone tell me? Lex buddy, I'm so sorry to hear that. My heart goes out to you.  
Noah you were wrong.

  I’m so dehydrated.
I’ve had a litre of water already today, and it’s not going away. I feel hungover, and I only had 2 sips last night. Seriously, I didn’t even pour a drink I had so little. I feel less sick today, but still don’t feel like eating. Twila and I hit the gym this morning after she hauled my ass out of bed and forced me to listen to Paris Hilton. I can’t pick up my backpack without wincing in pain, but It doesn’t hurt enough. I need to do more. I need to find something to make this other pain go away. Had lunch with Keith today. Not much of a lunch. Half a rice bagel. Blech. The first thing I’ve had since my trip to second cup. We walked, and talked and he told me things would be okay eventually. I just I feel sad still. And I don’t want to. I want to go back to being happy. Haha I walked up to Keith in SUB today, he took one look at me and goes, “ohhhh no…”
Yeah. I suppose it’s good that this is making me feel so bad, because it means that once the pain is gone I’ll be able to remember the good times right? RIGHT? It had better. Otherwise, I quit. No more.

On another note, I think I’m going to buy an iPod. Playing with Twila’s today was fun. Mostly because she had some WEEEEEIRD songs on it. Like Honestly… who really listens to BOY BANDS any more? Other than Courtney… and my sisters… and Steph and Britt.
He hid it well. I wish he hadn’t, but that doesn’t change anything. I was hoping that when I woke up this morning, it had been a bad dream. Jill says it wasn’t.
So, for the rest of the week I’m to stick to Keith’s 2 rules.
1: No Alcohol, even on the weekend
2: No Rebound boys.
Fine. It doesn’t make it hurt less, and it doesn’t make me feel less sick.
Tomorrow, I think I’ll run with Twila. She’ll kick my ass.

I'm not a cool girl, and this proves it.

G-Ram, my hero some times...
not all boys suck, just ones that arent me

'the way to get through this is very simple.........as butters best puts it on South Park.........I know im sad now, but im sad because i was a part of a good thing......and the memory of the good will make your next relationship that much stronger'

Thanks buddy, you'll always hold a special place in my heart.

07:36pm 05/11/2006
mood: maybe the pain won't find me.
I feel sick. I feel sick. I can't believe it hurts this much. I'm so sorry to anyone out there that I have made feel this way. I know I told Coach L that crying is for weanies, and part of me thinks that it is, but that's not the stupid girl part of me. That's the hardened jaded wench. I don't want to be her, and I don't want to be the silly stupid girl. I just, I hurt. I'm mad at myself because I didn't see it coming, and that's probably what gets me the most. My mom told me today that no guy is worth a hangover, but well, part of me thinks that He is. I'm not mad, I'm just sad, shocked and sorry. nothing I could have done? I seriously doubt that, but that's the best answer i'm going to get out of him :( Allan, you were 200% right. I fell hard, and now, I'm broken. I'm so broken, everything about me feels wrong and I have this incredible desire to purge my room and my life, just because I'm not really sure how to react. I've just associated some negative emotions with Second Cup, and probably will not want to drink coffee from there ever again. I feel so bad, and I don't know how to make things better. Twila seems to think the he was just using me for rides to regattas... haha shows what my sister who has never had a boyfriend knows. I... I'm sad. I need a hug. I need a good hug. Where have all my friends that give good hugs gone?

Was there someone else? I don't really think so, but I don't see the logic behind it. Why do you guys have to live in Calgary? I need people to get trashed with to make the pain go away. I... yeah. I hurt. and I don't want to. I suppose that the reason I hurt this much is because I think I've cared more about him than I've cared about any of my other boyfriends. I'm surprised that it was so short lived, but I think I want him to be happy, and if he's not happy with me, then I'm going to have to accept that? Is that the way I'm taking things now? Just letting people walk all over me and the like? No, I don't want it to be that way, but... I still like him. I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

The songs, how appropriate... Thank you iTunes for knowing me better than I know myself.

You Are a Flashy Red Bra!

Outgoing, friendly, and fascinating.
You're a charmer, with your pick of the men.
But you want a man who's as magnetic as you are.
You need someone who can keep up with your all night gab fests!

You Belong in London

A little old fashioned, and a little modern.
A little traditional, and a little bit punk rock.
A unique woman like you needs a city that offers everything.
No wonder you and London will get along so well.

  Here is the brilliant deep thought of my Linguistics 361 Child Language Acquisition course today. It is just so insightful that I feel I must share it with the rest of the world.

"Apes don't talk about their feelings."

I think that is the BEST example, which I have had to date, of my money being wasted.

One more thing...

What is it with my friends and getting engaged? Those of you who are, I'm happy for you, but I must admit that it weirds me out a little. I think it's mostly just the fact that you guys are moving on to another chapter in your lives, which is totally cool. But I see myself sitting here, still studying for exams in school, still acting like a teenager sometimes. Man, I miss being a teenager sometimes. I think that i'm up to 3 pairs of you guys that are engaged, and i've got 2 that are already married. Weird. So not ready for that. but congrats to those of you who are.

a direct quote from a friend...
The hardest thing to see is someone you love love someone else.
Whenever the mood strikes you.   
04:15pm 30/11/2005
mood: jealous
Don't you just hate it when people upset you and you know that they don't know they did it?
Why is life so frustrating sometimes? Life just sends you those false senses of security, and then, the next thing you know, it kicks you in the face. There must be an expiry date on happiness sometimes I think. that happiness you feel when everything is going right, and it seems as if it will never go wrong. then BAM. you're screwed again. Just like the last time you were in love with life. life's motto:"Kick, not just when they're down, but whenever the mood strikes you". It makes me sad that i'm becoming, or i suppose have already become, jaded.

So Coach L suggested that I start one of these crazy go nuts things, so here it is. We'll see how amusing it becomes once I understand it a little bit more.

An introduction, I row. Well, kinda. I spend a lot of time with rowers, with them in boats, with them outside of boats, sometimes it feels like all I know are rowers. But sadly, I don't have the glory of actually BEING a rower. I have something better. I'm a coxswain. That's right all you people with twisted looking-glass views of rowing, i'm the little one that sits in the front and yells "stroke! stroke! stroke!" Now that you have some twisted idea of what I do, I'm going to dispel this myth. I very rarely sit in the front. I usually sit in the stern of the boat, facing the rowers. Secondly,I don't yell "stroke!". I rowed in a crew once where the cox called that every single stroke of the race, and I nearly cried because I was laughing so hard... SHE gives coxie's a bad name. I steer, motivate, coach, and make tactical decisions.
That's enough rowing rants for now... there shall be more. I promise
