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.

I haven't really been updating about school on here (well, actually that's kind of a lie, I've been updating my tumblr with some stuff), but for the most part I am enjoying it. The work has been intense and it's only going to get more so, but I'm having fun. Today I stayed in class until 7:30 so I could finish off two projects that are due on Monday. I'm happy I did it because now I can relax a bit this weekend and just start planning and sketching for the billion other projects I have due in the next few weeks.

The people I'm in class with are really nice and we're all getting along really well. The past two Thursday's have been class 'movie night'. We have a huge screen and digital projector at the front of our classroom, so we can just hook up our laptops to it and play movies. Last week we watched X-Men: First Class. Yeah, I was a giddy mess throughout the whole thing, but luckily I'm in a room full of art students and I'm not the only nerd there. \o/ Last night we decided on a Miyazaki night and watched Princess Mononoke and Kiki's Delivery Service. I had never seen PM and I have to say I was really disturbed watching it. I don't get disturbed or scared watching movies very much and I gotta say I was super surprised as to how I reacted to it. It was a beautiful, intense, weird, and amazing film that left me weirded out. But then Kiki made up for it because IT WILL FOREVER BE MY FAVOURITE MIYAZAKI FILM! ♥

Today in life drawing class two of the girls were kidding around with the British guy (I think I mentioned him before) and one stole his hat/beanie and he was sitting there with his lovely brown curls around his face. Then one girl said 'Fuck. You look so much like Orlando Bloom.' and it I almost fell over flat on my back because he really, really does and I cannot believe what an utter git I've been for not noticing it before. And of course he's got this lovely accent, lovely sense of humour, is crazy talented, and I'll be with him in school for three years. I can't. The universe is testing me, I'm sure.

I got 95% on my latest photography project. The assignment was just a study of the different focal lengths and depths of field. I honestly wasn't expecting such a high mark since I kind of half assed it, but one of the pics I took I really do love:

Now I'm off to bed since sleep seems to become a rare thing for me these days.

Last night mum and I watched that new show Terra Nova that we recorded. I thought it was alright, but nothing mind blowing. Anyway, throughout the whole thing I kept saying I wanted a dinosaur and because daughters love to torture their mothers, I kept saying it really loudly. Anyway, this morning mum was still asleep even though her alarm was going off and I had to wake her, so I just walked in her room, turned on the lights and screamed 'I WANT A DINOSAUR!'. That got her up.

I am 5 years old, not 27. :P

Today I finally saw Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows pt. 2. It was incredible and I felt like my heart was in my throat the entire time. I had a couple of issues with it, but overall it was beautiful. I went in expecting to feel emotional, but when Harry went into the forest to face Voldemort and everyone appeared, well, I just broke down. That part of the books always gets me as well, so I guess I shouldn't have been surprised. Also, Neville and McGonagal were BAMFs x a billion. Seriously.

Tomorrow is my first day of university. For those of you who may not know I am taking a three year course in graphic design and illustration. I've been having anxiety attacks all week about it, so things have been a bit emotional. It's not so much that tomorrow I start school, tomorrow I start my life. Like, my life. Those of you who've known me all these years know that it's been a struggle for me for many different reasons. It's more of moving forward for me and just me. These are things that should have happened shortly after high school, but they didn't. It's taken me 10 years to get here and of course I'm going to be a bit nervous. I'm also super excited. After orientation tomorrow morning I have my first class: photography for designers I. I also get a brand new Nikon camera, so the added bonus of a new toy is exciting.

So yes, tomorrow is nerve wracking for me for several reasons, but I think I'm ready.
bunnylove: (Default)
Yesterday I received my class schedule for school and honestly I'm torn between excitement and feeling like I want to throw up because of nerves. It's kinda weird because some days I'll have things end at about 4pm and then other days not until about 6-6:30; I guess I assumed it would be a standard 9-5 kind of thing, but either way I'm not worried about it. The first day I have to attend a University lecture/welcome about general campus things and then in the afternoon I get my orientation of the program and my new Nikon digital camera. >:D

I also discovered that I am allowed $500 tax credit or chunk of my loan or something of that sort towards computer equipment and software for school. I was actually thinking of possibly getting a netbook for class. First years don't get their own Mac's, so we all have to share the ones that are in the classroom. There'll be about 30 of us and only about 8 computers. I'm figuring it could be beneficial to getting things done quicker. I'd take the laptop I have now, but it's over 18.4" inches wide, heavy and isn't the most portable thing (plus I wouldn't have room on my desk). Does anyone own a netbook or know someone who does? How do you/they find them? I'm also glad to find out about the $500 because in Second Year you have to buy Photoshop with your own money. Bleh. I'd just rip the one I have but a) it's not the Mac version and b) I could get kicked out if I use a pirated one. Don't want to risk that.

Tuesday mum and I went to see Cowboys & Aliens. I barely knew the overall story and didn't read the graphic novel, but I knew that Fav was directing and the Spielberg was involved as well. I enjoyed it for the most part, but I felt there was something missing. Sam Rockwell was severely underused in this and I was disappointed there wasn't more of him. Daniel Craig's ass in those leather chaps were a thing of beauty though. LOL

So I'm completely obsessed with Michael Fassbender and his smoking. It's like some kind of porn in and of itself to me. Honestly, how can he make such a crap habit so sexy? IDK.

Thank you everyone who replied about my dad, you all rock. He's doing fine considering what happened. He'll be off work for awhile and the doctors think there won't be any issues with his injuries. Something must be in the water this week because the day after dad got attacked another bus driver was verbally assaulted and the police had to get involved. Then today another bus driver was physically assaulted (he's from a different company that dad drives for), but still this is all so strange. All the assaulter's were different people, so it's not one guy doing all of this. Maybe people are grumpy because of the weather, all we've had is rain and more rain and the temperatures averaging about 12-20°C (53-68°F). Thankfully we're not back east, I heard it got to 50°C (122°F) with the humidity in Toronto; I can't even begin to imagine being in that type of heat.

NEW HOBBIT VIDEO BLOG! Just seeing so many of the old cast from LOTR made me so happy. GAH! Thanks for ruining my life again, PJ.

Serious, Cate Blanchett, STOP BEING SO FLAWLESS!!!!

I like how they dubbed Aidan the 'sexy dwarf' and all the others were making fun. While I find Aidan very attractive I'm still going to stan for Dean/Fili, he'll probably be my Orlando of these films, JUST WARNIN' YA.

I just got home from the hospital. Tonight my dad, who is a bus driver, got assaulted by some crazy guy because he wouldn't give him a free ride. The guy just started beating my dad over the head with a Thermos and went ape shit. All over a stupid $3.75 bus fare. Long story short is that a few people came to my dad's aid and the police and ambulance were called in. The guy who assaulted my dad didn't run, so the police were able to arrest him and take him away. Dad was taken to emergency and had x-rays and a CT scan done on his jaw and head and thankfully everything looks okay and he's already home. He'll be sore and bruised, but we're just so thankful that this lunatic didn't have a knife or a gun or some other kind of weapon otherwise things could be a lot worse.

And you know what? I was a witness to all of this only I didn't know it. The Starbucks I work at is across the parking lot from the bus exchange where he stops at and that's where the guy got on. I was working tonight and at I could see all the police cars, ambulance and stuff happening but I was too far away to actually see that it was my dad. We all just thought that someone had an accident or something, but nope, it was my daddy getting wailed on. I phoned my mum on my break and I just casually mentioned what I say and then she said she got a call from Karen (the bus dispatcher/main operator for everyone at the bus company) and well, you know.

I swear if I wasn't about to start university in September I think I would move to some tiny island somewhere. Can life just not be complicated for two minutes? Please?

Mum's been feeding the slugs cat food to try and deter them from eating her flowers. They seem to really like it, one just polished off two treats.

This took place after I got off the phone with my dad:

Me: Why does he need you to go shoe shopping?
Mum: He wants a new pairs of shoes for the wedding.
Me: Okay.
Mum: He needs to get a pair of satin pumps, I wish he would have the guts to do that. He could walk around with his toes hanging out.

Sadly my birthday ended on a more depressing note last night. Not because the Canucks lost the Stanley Cup, but because of a select group of immature, drunk assholes decided it would be great to trash the city. If you don't know what's going on there's news about the riots everywhere.

We are deeply passionate about hockey, not just here in Vancouver, but across our country. We use it as a way to get together, celebrate and have fun, but sadly this was not the case last night. These riots weren't solely about the Canucks losing; there were just idiots out there wanting to do this and planned to do this regardless of the outcome. Part of the down town core got absolutely trashed; windows broken, stores looted, cars turned over and burned, people stabbed and just anarchy all around. This is not the Vancouver that most people believe and live in. For that I am sorry. I know that people around the world will look at this and just assume that all Vancouvrites are sore losers and just can't celebrate a great hockey season, it's just the way it is, but 99.9% of us are not like that at all. So many people here are deeply ashamed, disgusted and want to make this right. It is said that over 17,000 people have come down town today to help clean up and help with repairing things. That is my Vancouver.

One thing I am deeply grateful for was that it was my dads day off. He's a bus driver and his route would have taken him right in the middle of everything. I don't know what I would do or think if he had to work that night.

As for the Canucks? You know what, they worked their damn asses off and they made it to game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final. That's pretty damn good. Boston deserved to win it, they worked hard and played good games. Win our lose I am very proud at how our team did this year. You try playing almost every other day for two months straight and win that cup.

I feel as if I have to apologize for my city and so do a lot of people. We're a great city with great people, I just hope that the disgusting acts of the small group of 'people' will not ruin it for the rest of us.

Also big props to the VPD/RCMP, VFD and other city workers who were in the thick of it last night and tried to control everything.

Going through the process of filling out student loan applications and looking at student lines of credit. I'm confused. WHY CAN'T THEY JUST GIVE ME THE MONIES? ;__; I do know one thing, I'm going to be in debt up to my eyeballs after I graduate.

I haven't really felt like updating too much as of late. I've just been getting things organized for school and information and more information and some more information. At least I have a lot of time to do that because I have been off work since May 20th because my back went out AGAIN! Two shifts back at work and everything just went to hell and I practically had to start back from square one. I was in so much pain, but thankfully it wasn't as painful as the first go around (thank you powers that be). I'm now off work until at least the end of June or I may not even go back to work since I will be quitting in August anyway. All my claims and stuff for the injury has been put into the government but they're taking their sweet time to process it (as usual). I hope the make a decision soon because I now have less than $4 in my bank account and that's it. Food is nice and so is paying rent.

I've been meaning to do a picspam of when my mum and I took care of Bianca (we call her Bonka) a couple of weeks ago. Our landlord came by a couple of days ago and he has to leave again on the 18th of June until July 2nd so we get to Bonka sit again. I've forgotten how much I like having a dog, but the full time work of it is a lot. I'm going to stick with cats for the next while.

Does anyone watch the show My Little Pony Friendship is Magic? *hears crickets* I've kind of gotten addicted to it and cannot stop watching episodes on Youtube. When I kept on watching it mum said that she was worried about me. :P Although it is kind of cool to watch because last summer as part of my Foundations in Illustration and Design course we took a tour of the studio that animates the show here in Vancouver. I got a bit of a sneak peak last year and to see it all come together is pretty neat.

Vancouver has become a complete hockey city, it's so unreal seeing the crows during the games and just everyday people wearing their shirts or jerseys. So many cars have the flags on them and stickers, it's awesome. Everyone seems to be having a great time and just partying. My dad doesn't enjoy working too much on game days since he's a bus driver and has to drive down town and contend with a hundred thousand people or more. At least there's only (maybe) 4 games left so he can relax afterwards. I fully believe that we can beat Boston and win the cup.

I heard back from the university.

They don't have enough spots so I am on the wait list. If someone drops out before the course begins in September then they may give me a call and offer me a spot. I could get that call tomorrow or I could get that call September 1st or any time in between. If I don't hear from them by the time the programs starts then I am not in.

I honestly don't know how to feel. Part of me is happy that it is isn't a solid 'no'. Part of me is being optimistic about still having a chance. Part of me is really angry that I have to put my life on pause for 3 months or more concerning school or finding another job. Part of me feels like I've failed. Part of me feels like I have succeeded. Part of me wants to crawl into bed and never come out.

Thank you everyone for your comments, love and support about my Grandma, it means a lot to me. Tomorrow my aunt is having an open house/gathering so we can all say goodbye and remember. We opted out of having a formal funeral/service since it's just too much stress for everyone and in later years my Grandma wasn't really affiliated with any church or organization, so we felt it wasn't really necessary. I'm not going to lie, I'm pretty nervous about tomorrow. I haven't been to something like this for a family member since I was about 7 and that was for my Grandpa. I barely remember any of it, so really this is the first time tackling the whole 'death of a family member' as an adult. I am always uncomfortable crying in front of family or in public. I just try to bottle it all up and then usually have my own mini meltdowns alone days or weeks after everything. Healthy, no? ;P

This week has been hard for various reasons, some not having anything to do with Grandma. Money is bad, probably the worst it's been in... well, ever. Last night I crushed my big toe underneath the giant blue garbage bin at work; probably one of the most painful things I have ever felt in my entire life. Thankfully my toe wasn't broken. I could barely walk the rest of the night, but today I can bend it fine and put pressure on it, it's just turning a nice purple/blue colour. I also wanted to take my mum to the aquarium for her birthday on Wednesday and I had the mindset that I would make this happen no matter what, but I can't, so that kinda knocked me down too. I have made alternate plans; I have gift cards from Christmas to the movies and to a restaurant so that will just as fun. So to really sum it up this really hasn't been my week for a number of reasons. :D I think after tomorrow is over with I'll start feeling better and just having the pressure of certain things over with and I can just gather my wits and focus on assembling my portfolio.

My grandma died early this morning; she was 93 and old age just took over. She didn't suffer much or didn't have much pain, so that is a blessing. I'm so glad that mum and I went down to see her one last time on Tuesday. We originally though that we'd come down today, but it would have been too late. I'm glad that we got to see her one last time and told her we loved her.

I'm currently sitting in a café stealing their internet (the sign said it was free) since I still don't have a connection at home. That will be fixed on Thursday when Mr. Cable/Phone/Internet man comes over and hooks us all up with stuff. I do however have TV, so I can at least watch all the shows that I like to keep myself from going crazy.

I recorded last weeks SPN: The Curious Case of Dean Winchester )

The move was.... moveful. Moving sucks so so much, but this time mum and I were better organized for it. It took us all week to move, with the big truck that came on Thursday. It actually didn't take too long, only about 7 hours and the company we went with this time was HALF (like seriously, half) the money it was with the company we used back in May. Which is good because we are so fucked over for money right now it's not even funny. Mum's already freaking out about Christmas since it's pretty much guaranteed to be a bust if I can't get job before then.... and I'm not sure I will. I've been looking for almost 2 months now and nothing. It's making me nervous. I've been on interviews and interviews and so far nothing. Still not giving up, I can't give up, so I'll just hope for the best. I haven't been doing much job hunting the past week with the move and all, but once I get a connection on Thursday I'll go back to it full swing.

The new place is good. It's up off of a main road, so it's nice and quiet. We also have heated floors and the kitties LOVE it. They just flop down on the floor and sleep. I'm still a little nervous about letting them out with the dog in the back yard. We're not 100% sure if she's kitty friendly or not. She's a 10 month old German Shepard. She's seen Tinkerbell through the fence and is very interested, so we'll see.

I'm so thankful last week is over, it took a big toll on all of us. Sunday was the first day I could do whatever so I slept for 14 hours and then had a 2 hour nap in the evening. Yay sleep!

How are all of you? There's no way I'll be able to catch up on anything LJ wise, so if there's anything you would like me to read/see ect. let me know and I'll probably get to it on Thursday or Friday. :D
bunnylove: (Misc - Halloween Kitty!)
Moving tomorrow.

We've been moving all week actually, but the big strong men are coming tomorrow to move all the heavy shit. I'm so ready for this week to be over. My back is out, I'm going to miss all the Thursday night shows tomorrow (OMG SPN ;___;) and I have bad PMS. Oh, and the alskdfj;laefsfj;dslkfjfucking cable/internet/phone company FINALLY has confirmed the move and assigned the tech to come out to the new place to hook everything up... NEXT THURSDAY! WTF?!?!? I asked for the changes and shit over a week ago and after trying to get a hold of someone for three days and being on hold for OVER AN HOUR the shit I asked for will be done. BUT I MAY NOT HAVE INTERNET AND TV FOR A WEEK. WHAT THE FUCK AM I SUPPOSED TO DO WITH MY LIFE, HUH? I mean I could live without one or the other, but both? THIS SHIT IS SO NOT ON.

Have I mentioned that I have bad PMS? LOL

The only good thing about this move is that we are prepared this time and actually aren't that stressed right now. All I pretty much have to do is throw the rest of my clothes from my dresser into a box and get some pillows packed up and that's it. Mum and I technically have this place until Saturday, so if things don't get done tomorrow it's not a huge biggie.

I'm also sad that this Halloween/Samhain is kinda shot for me. I've been so stressed and consumed with everything else I'm just not in the spirit. :( I will live through all of you.

My diet over the last two days have consisted of McShits, Wendy's, Pizza Hut and Subway, ect., I'm so ready for meal with 'real' food.

Anyway, bitching aside, if I'm not on line for awhile and there's anything you'd like me to see/read/comment/do/make/kill just drop me a comment or email me.
bunnylove: (Castle - Writing is srs bizness)
Today was.... not good. To put it mildly. I just... yeah. I'll be so thankful when this week is over with.

My only saving grace for this day was Tonight's episode of Castle )
bunnylove: (Misc - My own deam. My own world.)
Any Merlin fans know if this week there was a new episode? I've been looking for a torrent for it, but no luck yet.

Dad took me to see Zombieland last night. Two words )

Thursday afternoon mum and I went out to Deep Cove for lunch after signing the lease to our new place. It was a pretty nice day (the past two have been monsoons) and I took some pictures. I also met a Bernese Mountain puppy and her name was Bonnie. <3

I stitched together about 6 photos of the cove.

Read more... )

That night mum and I also had a stalker. Mittens was sitting on the table just outside our living room window. He lives upstairs and is the one who beats up Tinkerbell and fights with Moe. He's not the nicest kitty, but he's cute to look at. He sat there for a good 20 minutes or more and watched us watch The Mentalist. I think he likes it.

bunnylove: (Star Trek - I shall and always...)
I'm feeling better, physically. I ate the first 'real' food last night for dinner and thing were fine. Still taking it slow and sticking with toast and soup. Today is my first day back at work and then after tomorrow I'm off for 11 days. :P SPN Con on Friday, super excited and nervous. I don't know anyone really well who'll be there ([ profile] ms_nerd are you going? We should meet up somewhere if you are). Still it'll be fun and I'll meet JARED AND JENSEN OMFG!!! some fellow LJ'ers. :)

My brand new laptop, with it's brand new everything, that I have had for less than two weeks is already giving me the blue screen of death. W.T.F?!?!?!?!?!?!!? Seriously, that just pisses me right the fuck off. I've got the warranty, so I'm ok there, but... jeeze, two weeks?! Not on Windows. Not on.
