It's Coming On Christmas...

They're cutting down trees
They're putting up reindeer
And singing songs of joy and peace
Oh I wish I had a river I could skate away on...


Oh hay thar Christmas! I've been noticing on several friends entries on LJ and on Tumblr that it just doesn't feel like Christmas this year. I don't know why, but I don't feel it as well. Maybe it's because I have no money and no one is getting anything from me this year. Usually I'd go out and get some small things and then spend the night wrapping, but I haven't had that, so I think that's part of what's missing. Not the actual material aspect of it, but once I do that I just get into the mindset of it all. Or it could be that since my family is broke we can't do much of anything tomorrow except to be together; which I am fine with. Christmas is really about being together and sharing it with the ones you love. We hear this cliché all the time, but it's true. Even if you may not be able to spend it with all your loved ones I hope that it can still be a good one. If I was in the power to grant everyone their Christmas wish I would in a heartbeat. Even we're close or don't talk much any more you are no less special to me.

Even if you skip all the stuff I wrote above, please have a safe and Happy Christmas, Hanukkah, Winter Solstice, Kwanzaa or whatever you may or may not celebrate. All my love to you all.


9th year and counting!

Thank yous!

[livejournal.com profile] antiquitea (HAPPY AVENGERMAS!) and [livejournal.com profile] gossy16, your cards arrived just in time today! Thank you both so much! They are now with the others beside our little tree. :)

Even though I don't have a lot going for my actual Christmas plans it suddenly hit me how much I actually have to do (meaning housework). Time to vacuum! Which the cats hate, but I get a kick seeing them freak out about it because I'm a horrible person. :P

LJ Fail

LJ how do you expect me to give rage feedback about your stupidly unnecessary comment page redesign IF I CAN'T EVEN POST COMMENTS?! WTF?

EVEN THE DOCTOR AGREES WITH ME!


IDK, everyone says they're going to move over to Dreamwidth. Things have changed on LJ over the past year or so and it's just not like what it used to be (not the actual site, but people using it ect), but I'm so confused over who posts at DW and LJ that I just don't want the hassle of having two 'full time' journals. I've been on LJ almost 10 years... holy. shit. I've invested a lot and I just can't up and leave.

I is skolar. I lernz stuff

All my final grades are in... 3.84 GPA and will be making the Dean's List for a second time. Who know I would fail hard in high school but do so well in university? Out of my eight classes I got five A's, so I am really quite pleased with myself considering how intense this program really is. I never thought I'd be doing this well in university. Now lets see if I can keep it up for the rest of the year.

It's also perfect that the class I skipped the most I got the overall highest grade in. XD Figures.

Thank you!

It looks like the postal service decided to hoard things and give them to me all today. [livejournal.com profile] boromirslover, [livejournal.com profile] bandgeek01, [livejournal.com profile] cenedrawood, and [livejournal.com profile] lallyloo, I got all your cards today! Thank you all so much! I put them around the tree where Tinkerbell promptly knocked them all down and then I'll put them back up and well, you know, circle of misery ect.

Did anyone watch the finale of Terra Nova tonight? I got a big LOST vibe at the ending there.

I also watched the first part of Neverland tonight and enjoyed it. Not the greatest of the Peter Pan lore, but I like the idea of how everything got started and how Peter became Peter Pan.

Freeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

I'm officially on my winter break! I don't have to go back until January 9th! I can sleep, watch tv, sleep, sleep, and then maybe sleep! It's awesome. This weekend was basically me catching up on said sleep. Yesterday I woke up at around 1pm and then I fell asleep on the couch at 3:30pm for an hour and was late for my volunteering. I'm not tired or anything.

Today I volunteered for pet photos with Santa today at Petsmart; I was the photographer and got to use my new camera from school. I got an A- in my photography class this semester, so I put it to good use. This was the last day of the event (it's been going on every weekend this month) and we've raised so much money for VOKRA. We really need all the donations we can get because our vet bills are crazy high. It was mostly dogs and a couple of cats that came into the store for a photo but we did have one bearded dragon! I've never photographed a bearded dragon before, so it was interesting. Her name was Sheila and she was very nice, I got to pat her and she seemed really at ease with everyone.

a couple of pics of my final projects if anyone wants to look )

Freedom! Almost.

I have five days of school left. In the past two weeks alone I have had eight final projects due and this last week I have three. I can tell you that it hasn't been easy, but I'm happy I can see an end to it all. I haven't had any time to really get into Christmas, so I feel a bit detached from it all. Hopefully that'll change at the end of the week. Also based on all my marks I've gotten for projects I doubt I'll pull anything lower than a B in all my classes. I'm not too horribly concerned about grades and such because once I grad in 2014 the overall grades won't matter too too much, but it's still nice to keep them high for scholarships considerations.

Having all this school work means that I've fallen behind on some TV, but I've managed to catch up on a couple of things.

Christmas Wish Meme 2011

Ho-Ho-Ho


STEP ONE
- Make a post (public, friendslocked, filtered...whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fun ("I'd love a Snape/Hermione icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV.") The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.
- If you wish for real possible things, make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.
- Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ, or link to this post so that the holiday joy will spread.

STEP TWO
- Surf around your friendslist (or friendsfriends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now here's the important part:
- If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use--or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free--do it. Once a wish has been granted, it will be crossed off my list.

You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf--to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not--it's your call.

There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just...wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.

MY LIST

1. Sleeeeeeeeep. Need sleeeeeeeeeep.
2. A donation to the Vancouver Orphan Kitten Rescue Association, this is the organization that I volunteer for and where I got Cleo; OR a donation to your local animal shelter/SPCA. Any amount or if you prefer to donate food/toys that's fine as well, you don't have to say it's in my name or anything like that.
3. If you have the means and really want to, go adopt a pet in need of a new forever home. Make a pet happy for the holidays.
4. Anything and everything from my Amazon wish list.
5. A dinosaur, preferably a fuzzy one.
6. Michael Fassbender under my tree.
7. James McAvoy under my tree.
8. RDJ under my tree.
9. A vacation to some place awesome with all my friends.
10. For my friends and family to be happy and healthy for another year.

If you want my home address PM me or comment asking for it. Also if you have a list like this, comment and link me to it and maybe I'd be able to grant you one of the wishes. I have absolutely 0 spare cash to spend on anyone this year, so I can't send out Christmas cards again, but if you want to leave me your email address (or PM me) I'd be more than willing to send you an e-card.

Garrgh!

My mum was involved in a hit and run today. She’s okay, but the car is a bit dinged up. The asshole decided to change lanes without even looking and hit mum and then sped off the minute it happened. Mum was too shocked to fully realize what happened and the person just sped off before she could get any licence plate number or even the make of the car. All she has is it was a dark grey SUV. I don’t get why some people are just selfish fucking scum and are too chicken to do the right think. Anyway, I know it could haven been worse and we're lucky to have such minimal 'damage'. Still frustrating as hell.

every subject I've put in here is lame, so this is my subject line

Every year I get more and more creeped out about Black Friday. Just hearing what people go through just to get stuff. C'mon, pepper spray? Really? The level of materialistic obsession and selfishness is getting just out of control. I know black Friday is supposed to fun and have that sense of the mad dash to get something for a loved one, but I think it's getting a bit out of control.

[/sits back down on soapbox]

I hope my American friends had a good Thanksgiving. :)

School is just so fucking crazy right now that it's incredible. I have about three weeks of classes left and we still have several projects left to do PER CLASS (I'm taking eight right now), plus forour final projects. Luckily I just started on the final project for my Drawing for Illustration class, but it's gonna take a lot of time. So if no one sees me for awhile I'm not dead, just working and trying to get what little sleep I can.

This weekend though should be interesting. My mum and I are Chihuahua sitting for someone this weekend while they go to Vegas. She brought the two Chihauhau's over last Friday to let them check our place out and meet the cats, boy they were not happy. Even though they're all twice the size of these dogs (well, Moe is actually about five times their size) they run like chickens. I think I'm going to be sleeping with a lot of cats on my bed tomorrow night and Sunday.

IDEK...

I had to do a film review for my communications course, so I chose to do 'Fish Tank' (because my teacher wanted more 'arty' films and not mainstream 'Hollywood' films, whatever).

I asked my mum to proof my draft and she just gave it back to me with suggestions/grammar corrections. These include:

her mother’s new boyfriend, Connor (Michael FassSlowbender, who has…

Boo!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN/SAMHAIN!!!! Or what's left of it. It's still Halloween here for the next 50 minutes. I hope everyone had a good and safe one or just a nice night in. I went to school as an angry bird and almost everyone got what I was, so that made me happy.

Of course I would get selected for the 'awkward' one

Next Thursday our class is attending a design/creativity conference called Creative Mix. One thing they offer our class is for us to design some kind of art piece/installation. Apparently we're the only ones that get offered this opportunity and it's a really good way to show off our skills, thoughts, and talents. For the short, short version, our concept is like a flow chart/quiz on creativity with several different answers about who is what. I volunteered for the illustration team and I was picked to illustrated the 'misfit/awkward/struggling with themselves/doesn't belong' portrait. At first I was kind of miffed that I was picked for that one (long history of feelings, school, physical appearance ect., will not go into it here), but in the end I had fun. I came up with someone struggling to put on their sweater, because we've all been there. And of course awkward turtle on the front for those who will know what it means.

This is the final illustration. I had to pull this off very quickly, so for what it is I am happy with it.




Other than that school has been super busy. The conference project is basically outside of everything that is on our curriculum, so everyone has had a pretty stressful week. Thankfully this weekend I can take it a bit easier and work on stuff that isn't due right away.

Did anyone watch that new show Once Upon A Time? I really enjoyed it. I wasn't blown away, but for the subject matter and everything else I thought it was great. It's also nice to see a fresh concept on mainstream tv. Everything is all crime, drama, medical ect. and I'm just sick of it. I'm going to check out the new show 'Grimm' or whatever it is tomorrow.

I've also solidified what I am going for this Halloween. I'm going as an Angry Bird (the red one) because a) it's cheap, b) I have a red shirt, c) it's cheap, d) I have construction paper and string at home to make a beak, e) it's cheap. I went and spent. $0.99 on some black face make-up, so I'll have big black eyebrows on my face this Monday.

*huffs*

I don't know what to be for Halloween. Everyone in class is talking about their costumes and I'm drawing a blank. I can't really afford anything, so I'd have to figure out something with what I already have.
