Things to do before I leave on the 4th:
- Go get a beaver tail (preferably on the canal)
- Go tobogganing on Green's Creek.
- Go tanning
- Finish reading The White Oleander
- Make more money
- Spend more time with friends & family

I work in 45 minutes and I haven't even started getting ready. Oooops.

I'm blue da bah dee da bah dye.

Second year, second semester. (Oh, and Merry Christmas!)

I am extremely stoked for next semester! I just read into all of my course outlines and all of my classes look AMAZING (if I get the prof that I so badly want and need.. haha kidding).

Anyways, I'm taking:
- Subcultures and the Media (Don Moore vs. Tanner Mirrlees ♥)
-Digital Design (a class about powerpoint, illustrator, photoshop, etc.)
-Radio Broadcasting (Amazing, even though I don't have Mike)
-Presentations and Persuasion (no exams/essays, but rather giving different kinds of speeches.. with Greg Kelley. Hello awesome!)
-and my elective, Desire & Discontent (it's about different human emotions)

I can't waiiiiit! I'm gonna be a huge nerd when I go back to school 5 days before any of my roommates get home and I'm gonna read a shit load of books about journalism & shit that interests me. And, my marks are up from first semester and my endless amount of homework/studying has paid off :) I'm pretty happy. Except that Noble obviously didn't submit her marks on time, go figure. So I can only assume that my average will get even better when she submits my mark! Woo!

Oh and by the way, I do realize that it's Christmas Day and I'm writing a post about next semester, but this just put me in an amazing mood.

Also, I got some sweet stuff for Christmas! Thanks Mom & Matt :)
Merry Christmas everyone! Hope your day has been going as well as mine so far!!

I bought a box of peanut butter ritz bits sandwiches and they are so good!
I forgot how delicious these things are ♥

I am so happy!

I've been playing Wii Fit for an hour every day for the past four days. I honestly didn't think that it would do anything for me, but it already has! I woke up this morning in pain, because I haven't been stretching. So naturally, I decided to stretch for 30 minutes, then hop back on the balance board. Apparently, my BMI has already dropped by a few points, so I came back up to check my weight, and I've lost two pounds :) haha, doesn't seem like much, I know, but I feel like I'm already starting to look more toned around my stomach. Woooo! That's my joyful ramble about wii fit.

Anyways, I am now going to wrap some presents!



I started watching Glee last night, and it was AMAZING.
Anna & I got to episode 3, and we will be watching more tonight. I'm pretty stoked.

Since I've been home..

I've been sleeping in and playing wii fitness. That is all.

I'm waiting for my boss to call me so that I have something to do during the day when Anna's at work because nobody else is home yet. Well, Pat was. But he's gone now. Okay coooooool.

Oh, and I miss Matt.

I like tea :)

... And having nothing to do but waiting for my friends to get here.
YEAHHHH! Christmas Break, let's doooo thissss! :)

Sippin' on some tea and praying that my sore throat will go away.
It's one day before my Christmas break.. pleaseeeeee leave me alone!


Helloooooo fellow bloggers,

Here's my life update:

For the past couple of days, I haven't been able to sleep properly. Either I go to bed early (11ish) and wake up from 1-4ish, or I lay down and can't fall asleep for like 2 hours. I have an exam tomorrow morning at 8am. I have to get up at around 6:45am.. I'm scared. And to top that all off, I woke up with a sore throat and a stuffy nose this morning. Amazing. haha.

Anyways, I'm super excited to see my friends tomorrow, then to head home on Sunday. :)!

In case you were wondering, I have to go to school today to drop off 4 assignments, then come back and study. I have the place to myself today which means no distractions. Even though it's never my roommates who distract me (other than Katie of course :P), but it's usually me who goes upstairs to procrastinate. Then I'll be going back to Value today because the sweater I bought yesterday is made of wool and is so itchy. I don't think I'll be able to make it through the night with it on.

Also, a band from Ottawa named Benefit of a Doubt (who is amazing, by the way) are getting their music video aired on Much Music! HOLLA! Most of them graduated from my school, and they've been working super hard at this since I was in grade 10 or 11. So they definitely deserve everything they've gotten out of their hard work :) Congrats boys! Check them out!

Break countdown...

Two days until Christmas break!!

I'm so excited. My friends Anna & Adam are coming up on Saturday morning, then we're going downtown to do some shopping (I still haven't started Christmas shopping.. ooooops), then we're going to an ugly Christmas sweater party and heading back to Ottawa on Sunday morning!

I'm currently writing my contemporary narrative take home (almost done), then I'm going to VV with Kristina to hunt down an ugly xmas sweater, then back to studying for Canadian Issues.

No homework for a month? Effing riiiight! :)

The Blind Side

Last night, Matt & I went to go see "The Blind Side" and it was so good. I had tears in my eyes / was crying the entire time. Ah! Michael (the main character) is just, so cute. Every time he looked sad I would cry. Haha, but yeah, it was an amazing movie! It really gets you thinking too. It shows two extremes (wealth vs. poverty) and how differently they not only act, but think. But yeah, I recommend you go see it!

Anyways, we got back and ordered pizza cause we were hungry then did some homework and read a really good magazine together. It was a good night :)

I've waited all my life to cross this line, to the only thing that's true.
So I will not hide, it's time to try, anything to be with you.
All my life I've waited, this is true.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

Well, not reeeeally.
BUT - It's snowing in Toronto!!! And I'm not talking about a few snow flakes here and there. Oh no, it was like, a legit snowfall. Though I don't really like snow, it was nice to walk home in. It was pretty and made it feel like it was actually winter, and not spring.

Also, Matt & I went to Vaughan Mills this weekend and they were playing Christmas music and it was pretty sweet. That mall is ridiculous though. My space bubble was definitely invaded by like 300 people who were walking way too close to me.

Either way though, Christmas is quickly approaching, and though it didn't seem like it before, it most definitely does now.
I should probably get started on my Christmas shopping... Yikes.

"Be the change you wish to see in the world." - Mahatma Gandhi

I've been looking at inspirational quote posters for the past hour, and I want them all. Especially the Gandhi one that's in this title. I love it.

I'm so strange.

I just wrote a whole post about how I've come to realize that everybody that I know and love is going to eventually die. It's something that I didn't want to realize, and now that I have, I'm pretty bummed. And that's why I decided not to post it.

On a completely different note, I've been sitting on my bed, mentally preparing myself to do homework since 7:30pm. It is not 10:48pm and I have barely done anything. Go me.

Oh Ashlee, you're sadly a great procrastinator.
[yes, I did just refer to myself in third person]

Nanook of the whaaaa?!

Mr. John Grierson, I am pleased to have gotten to know you, but uh... GET THE HELL OUTTA MY HEAD!

I'm done two classes!
Nine more days until I'm done them all :) Yessss!

Wednesday, December 2, 2009

And with a smile on my face, I'm ready to go!

Holla at being in a good mood!
It's gorgeous in Toronto today (though I haven't been outside), which means...STUDY FOR DOC. FILM! ha.

Let's get'r done!

After several weeks of being at a high, my low has finally hit.

Ever feel like you're not good enough?
That would be me tonight.
