Gosh, I haven't updated it so long! This term has been hectic. It has been the busiest ever. Taking four computer science courses at once was definately a big mistake. There were so many assignments and projects. Managed to finish them all though. lol. I made two text adventure games (One in Prolog and one in Haskell), a Gmail plugin for Eclipse, and a Restaurant POS system in a team of 8 people!

I haven't done as well on my midterms as I have hoped. So definately I have to do well on my finals. I kinda slacked off the past two days though. I wanted to just relax. I am going to really study tomorrow. My first exam is on Friday. It's the AI course. It is such a hard course! I don't think that I will be pursuing the AI field anymore. I have no idea what the prof is talking about. But it was a somewhat fun course. On the last day we had the Great Wolfman Shearing! You can watch it here on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=49TmxNPhXnw Yeah our prof is not a rational agent. lol

Had some weird dreams again. But not as weird as the floating fetuses...One about a dragon and its rider and one was about these creatures that had the job of protecting mankind from some other creatures but they were not liked at all. Then there was some pokemon-like creatures and there was a revolt because people were being nasty to the protectors...Ok that makes no sense at all to who ever is reading this.

I've been playing Gaia a lot too. It is all Mei's fault! She started playing and now I'm addicted! And I'm eating a lot of jellybeans. Coffee jelly beans...mmmm.

Sleeptime. Finals begin on Friday.
It's almost the end of the second week of school and already I'm behind in everything.

Co-op jobs are closing everyday and I don't have the time to write cover letters not to mention that my cover letters and resume sucks. I don't know why I was ever in English enriched since I apparently have no idea how to write at all. It is amazing that I ever passed English in highschool. Yesterday I went to the library and borrowed some resume/cover letter writing books. Hopefully I will learn something from them.

Some courses it is not my fault that I am behind since the bloody textbooks have not even arrived yet. How am I suppose to keep up with the reading when there is no textbook to read? The UBC bookstore should get their act together. They should have all the books available at the start of the term!

I'm wondering how I will ever be able to get through this term!
Ok this isn't what I do at work. It was only during the slow periods when there was no one around. I might just make a full picture of the tiger. I'm quite pleased with the result.

The pictures are doodled with pen on the back of a stack of playland ride passports at the PNE. The dragon was the first one drawn then the tiger the next day.

LOL. My captain saw the tiger and said it was cute. whoops.

I got my employee evaluation today. It said I am suitable for rehire. Heheh. That I am very polite and have a great attitude. =D

Tomorrow is my last day. I'm relief. Just like the first day. So it all comes round in a circle. Karen is going to go and see all the shows. And we're going to eat our last candy apple from the market place this year.

The day after school will start and I shall have to start applying to co-op jobs. Hopefully I will get hired. Another summer has gone and another school year is starting. Time flies by so fast. It really does.
Now the white minnow fry are actually big enough to take semi-decent photos of. They move around quite a bit so I have to take photos at night when they are drowsy. xD

Not all of them survived. There were three that were deformed; their tails were on crooked so they couldn't swim properly. I named them Quasi, Modo, and Esmeralda. Sadly all of them perished, the last being Esmeralda. Oh well 'tis life.

So now there are only about 9-10 left. Still a lot. There also might be 4 others in the parent's tank. Sometimes I see them, sometimes I don't. I think I'm just going to leave them in there.

I have high hopes of the other 9 surviving. I bought actual fry food from the pet store...though the flake food I crushed myself seems to be finer than the power fry food. Still it is fresher and probably a more balanced diet for my babies so I'm not complaining about the price. It also smells really good. lol.

Also Axel moulted! At first I thought he had disinigrated but I looked closer and it was just is empty exoskeleton.

Axel is doing well. He is not starving as I had previously thought. Quite the opposite! He has plenty to eat and plenty to choose from! I have an unwanted algae bloom in the tank. Fuzz algae was introduced with the plants I bought. Then brown algae and green appeared and green dot algae! Oy. I think my lamp is too bright! And not in the right spectrum. It is too yellow. And I may be guilty of overfeeding...Time to do some water changes.

I am SO EXCITED today! Why? Because my fish made BABIES! They probably laid the eggs a while ago but today I saw small fry swimming in the tank! So I scooped the five I saw out into another container. Just in case the parents might eat them. (I've read that they won't but why take the chance?)

When I can home from work I saw that there were more! I counted a least 13 fry! 8DDD I am so deliriously happy!!!!!! Yay!

I was making food for the fry during work. I was crushing flakes into fine powder.

I forgot to write about work...Well now I work for the PNE! I am a ticket seller and have been working for 4 days. It is my very first job ever! (Working for my uncle doesn't count.)
This is it! I am officially certified as an open water diver!

We had 5 confined pool dives at the UBC swimming pool previously and this weekend we finally went into the ocean! We went to Wytecliff park on Saturday and Copper Cove today. We saw lots of sea stars, fish, crabs and some sea cucumbers today.

But aww we wanted to go see the anemone wall! But the instructor that took us on the second dive of the day only spent 17 minutes with us! And we only worked on our skills. Dive #4 was supposed to be a sightseeing tour. We even changed our tanks because we told that they were going to take us down longer. :(

Anyways, diving is so fun!...in the water. Because what kills me is the getting into and especially OUT of the water. Once I fall down in the shallows there is no getting back up again. My legs are just too weak. LOL.

That picture is of Copper Cove where we dove today. We have to walk down a fight of stairs to get down there. And that means carrying HEAVY tanks up and down that. My biceps are definately bigger than when I started.

Even though I'm certified and can dive on my own now, I'll still dive with two other people: a buddy and someone to help me get out the water and carry my tank. HAHAHAH! Posted by Picasa
One of the males my friends got for me is dead. I think the other male killed him because he bullies the female too! I searched online for the cause of this aggressiveness and turns out I should keep at least 5 white clouds together with more females than males.

So today I went and bought 3 more FEMALE white clouds. Heheh I said to the staff I want the fat ones. Heehee.

Yeah so he's still bullying but I think there is a female that is not afraid to bully him back so it's all cool...so far.

Heehee. Do you see the Axel, the shrimp on the log? He is SO CUTE! I love shrimp. He might be starving though because I don't have any algae yet. Gotta get him something to eat!
Where have I been these days after I got off school? Well! Setting up a new aquarium in my room! Teehee!

I bought the tank at the end of July and have been adding things to it until now.

At first it was only filled with some Java moss and gravel and a temporary female betta that my sister bought. She named her Ferrari (I think). She's a pretty red colour. I actually saw her and told Karen about it. Karen's wanting buy a male too but all the petstores don't have any blue ones that Karen likes or they are of not very good quality. Petcetera's fish section is in a particularly dismal state. My my have they've gone downhill.

On Friday, Winnie, Vicki and Michelle gave me 3 white cloud minnows (the fish I wanted) for my (belated) birthday present! Yay! Here's them when I brought them home. I think the two on the left are males and the one on the right is the female. :) The males are VicVic and Winifred. xD My friends wanted me to name them that. Hehhehe. I don't know which is which since I can't distinguish between the two males.

And the fish and the tank today after some plant additions and an artificial log. I bought the plants today along with an Amano shrimp. The fish are up at the top there. Ferrari got moved to another tank in my sister's room.

The Amano shrimp is so cute! I'll probably get another one. We'll see how well this one fares.

I am so excited this is my first aquarium that has REAL plants in it! The plants I have are Sagittaria subulata and Java moss. I bought some liquid fertilizer for them but I think I should also add tablets in the gravel and get a better light. I'm just using my desk lamp right now. The tank doesn't come with the light and to buy it is an additional $34.99! That's too much for me. I haven't even started my job yet and I'm spending all my money away.
I just read my contributions in that story again. Heheh. What's with me and eating things? I must have been starving. And I think I was...

Anyways. Off to the Stats final!
Ooo it has been a while since I posted. I wrote a lot in my written journal. But it was mostly about dreams I've had. They are always so crazy.

These days I don't have a lot of time to remember dreams and record them. I am so busy this week! I started scubadiving lessons on Tuesday and have my second lesson is tonight. BUT I have a final tomorrow and another one on Saturday! Crazy! I haven't even started studying for Stats tomorrow. But we get a cheat sheet so hopefully by the time I finish making it I'll know enough to pass the final with a decent mark. And I have until 6pm tomorrow to cram in everything.

Heheh today was the last day of CPSC313 and I didn't really pay attention at all. I kindof drifted off and then started playing a story game with a group of friends. Hehehe. I got to keep the story 'cause Andrew was going to throw it away. Here is the story: (the colours respresent the different people who contributed to the story. The yellow colour is mine.)

Today was the worst day of his life. John had never done this before. In a freak computer science experiment, John was shrunk to the size of a hair follicle. Next he was transported into the armpits of his professor's armpits. John had never been in a smellier place in his life. It reaked of rotten eggs.

Then he really found some rotten eggs and started eating them until the smell went away. He was kind of stupid because then his socks started to smell so he ate his socks. Then a beautiful woman came in and John thought, "Wow. You smell nice."

She said, "Thanks jerk."

That was the last time he ever complimented a girl. He thought,"Right now all I wanna do is pee Oh god I wanna pee, so much!"

He felt hungry so he looked around for some food. He found a watermelon growing on his head so he plucked if off and ate it. But it was kind of moldy because he sweat so much all the bacteria from his head made the watermelon go bad. But since he was hungry, he ate it anyways.

What happened next was totally unexpected. His face in total agony as his stomach bubbled and his sides shook. Falling to his knees, his eyes turned blood red. He fell flat on the floor dead. And out of his ruptured stomach came the thing.

It was a baby chicken! All those rotten eggs turned into a chicken. So this chicken grew up and turned into a real boy. He was soo happy. He got up onto his two feet and gave the boy a candy.

The boy was so happy to find out that his dad actually cares for him. He started to like his dad and as the time passed
he started daydreaming. He imagined that his dad was hopping about dancing! He burst out laughing so that his dad thought that he was crazy and ran away from him. He laughed so hard that all the overripe fruit growing on his head fell off. Nothing else to do but eat them. So he did.

And that was the end of that story.

Andrew closed the book to the greatest novel ever written. It was
definitely bestseller material.

With a satisfied sigh, he stood up and thought about the wonderful
use of time in his boring computer science course.

Heeheehee! It might not make a lot of sense because we weren't allowed to see what the other people wrote except for the last sentence.

Well that's all. I have to start studying for Stats now. In an hour I start my diving lesson. EEE!
Subject: NASA and the Bible For all the scientists out there, those who think they are and for all the students who have a hard time convincing these people regarding the truth of the Bible....here's something that shows God's awesome creation and shows that He is still in control. Did you know that the space program is busy proving that what has been called "myth" in the Bible is true? Mr. Harold Hill, president of the Curtis Engine Company in Baltimore, Maryland and a consultant in the space program, relates the following development. "I think one of the most amazing things that God has for us today happened recently to our astronauts and space scientists at GreenBelt, Maryland. They were checking the position of the sun,moon,and planets out in space where they would be 100 years and 1000 years from now. We have to know this so we won't send a satellite, up and have it bump into something later on in its orbits. We have to lay out the orbits in terms of the life of the satellite, and where the planets will be so the whole thing will not bog down. They ran the computer measurement back and forth over the centuries and it came to a halt. The computer stopped and put up a red signal, which meant that there was something wrong either with the information fed into it or with the results as compared to the standards. They called in the service out and they said, "What's wrong?" Well, they found there is a day missing in space in elapsed time. They scratched their heads and tore their hair. There was no answer. Finally, a Christian man on the team said, "You know, one time I was in Sunday School and they talked about the sun standing still." While they didn't believe him, they didn't have an answer either, so they said, "Show us." He got a Bible and went back to the book of Joshua where they found a pretty ridiculous statement for any one with "common sense." There they found the Lord saying to Joshua, "Fear them not, I have delivered them into thy hand; there shall not a man of them stand before thee." Joshua was concerned because he was surrounded by the enemy and if darkness fell they would overpower them. So Joshua asked the Lord to make the sun stand still! That's right-"The sun stood still and the moon stayed-and hasted not to go down about a whole day!" (Joshua 10:12-13) The astronauts and scientists said, "There is the missing day!" They checked the computers going back into the time it was written and found it was close but not close enough. The elapsed time that was missing back in Joshua's day was 23 hours and 20 minutes-not a whole day. They read the Bible and there it was "about (approximately) a day" These little words in the Bible are important, but they were still in trouble because if you cannot account for 40 minutes you'll still be in trouble 1,000 years from now. Forty minutes had to be found because it can be multiplied many times over in orbits. As the Christian employee thought about it, he remembered somewhere in the Bible where it said the sun went BACKWARDS.. The scientists told him he was out of his mind, but they got out the Book and read these words in 2 Kings that told of the following story: Hezekiah, on his deathbed, was visited by the prophet Isaiah who told him that he was not going to die. Hezekiah asked for a sign as proof. Isaiah said "Do you want the sun to go ahead 10 degrees?" Hezekiah said "It is nothing for the sun to go ahead 10 degrees, but let the shadow return backward 10 degrees." Isaiah spoke to the Lord and the Lord brought the shadow ten degrees BACKWARD! Ten degrees is exactly 40 minutes! Twenty-three hours and 20 minutes in Joshua, plus 40 minutes in Second Kings make the missing day in the universe!" Isn't it amazing? References: Joshua 10:8 and 12,13 and 2 Kings 20:9-11. Forward this to as many people who you believe would think this is equally as cool.
I haven't written down anything for a time now. I always think of things to write down during the day but I forget it afterwards.

I guess I was probably just going to complain about my life and how I need to get off my lazy bum and DO SOMETHING. Whatever.

Heh. I started playing tamagochi again. So boring. But I want to make one of my own. Program one. Should I use Java or Flash? ...I was thinking on the bus today. tamago is egg in Japanese? And I don't know what 'chi' is but I'm guess little. Hahah. Cute. Tamago-chi. I never realized that.

List of things todo:

-GK website
-personal website
-learn PHP, SQL
-make Tamagochi-like program
-Flash actionscript
The Oilers lost. :(

I had hoped they'd win. They went so far!

I found out about it in Stats today. Heheh. My prof was like "Albertans, you can't trust them. They say they're gonna do it but they don't." He's halarious! I really enjoy his class.
Karen's making brownies. ^____^
I signed up for a four week beginners' tennis course today. Annie talked me into it.

It was pretty fun actually and I don't regret it at all. But oy. My arm is sore. Especially my wrist. I am such a poor learner. :(

Oh! It's the sixth day of the sixth month of the sixth year! Freaky.
AAAAAAAH! OMG! I actually got in! I can't believe it! I feel so giddy right now. But at the same time I feel very nervous. What if I won't be able to get a job? What if NO ONE WANTS ME???? I feel I do not have the skills yet to actually program. Now I REALLY need to learn PHP and mySQL. And start building that darn Golden Key website.

Still can't believe it.
I went to the zoo today with Ba and Karen. I had a lot of fun! Tigers are so pretty. We took tonnes of pictures but ALAS! I forgot to bring the Lumix camera! Stupid! Stupid! And I brought the wrong set of batteries so when we ran out juice. We ran out. But that's ok. We were pretty much done walking around anyways. But one thing we missed was the peacock! He spread his tail and was right in front of us for so long but we didn't have any more battery left! ;3;

We were so lucky because when we went on the bus that took us to the wolf and bear habitat, it wasn't their feeding time so they didn't come out. But then the fence got stuck! And the wolves thought it was feeding time so they ran out! I took some pictures but I was inside the bus so it wasn't really good and I was running out of batteries also.

The hippo and the cheetah wasn't there though! Karen went last year and they told her that they'll be finished with rebuilding the hippo habitat this year but they haven't even started! >:( Next year they'd better be finished!

I think this time of year is the best to go because there were a lot of baby animals! Baby lemurs, bison (born just yesterday), wallabee, birds. They are all so cute!!! I wish I'd gotten better pictures of the lemurs! But I had to use the digital zoom so the quality is so poor. Oh well next time.

Some pictures were taken with the Kodak and some with the Nikon. Can you tell which is which?

Karen and I went kayaking at Deer Lake with a group of my friends and her friends. She's been planning this for a month now BUT it turned out to be a rainy day. Crazy as we all are, we went anyways. It was fun albeit cold and wet. I doubled with Annie. She needs to build some upper body muscle. I paddled most of the time. Heehee. I'd be like

- "What's that?!"
- "Nothing it's just a log" -Annie
- "Let's go investigate it!"
- "Noooo, it's a snake!"
- "Really?! Let's go see it!"

Heheh. I'm always wanting to go near the edges of the lake and investigate things but Annie prefers to stay in the middle I think. LOL.

We'll go again when it's sunny next time.

After Karen and I went to see Deep Sea 3D. It was pretty good. There was this little shrimp/lobster thing that looks so cute! I liked its colours too. But I forgot what it is called.

Johnny Depp's voice is smexy.
Days like this I will treasure forever. Today I brought my grandpa to the Bloedel Conservatory at QE Park. He has never been there before. Spending time with my Grandpa makes me so happy. Seeing him smile makes me happier.

After dinner, we celebrated my birthday with a mango cake. Even Sunny had some. LOL.

Um I have such weird dreams lately. What's going on inside my head?

The night before:

There was some sort of Mad Hatter (Martin Short of all people) and I was with him in this wierd building that I don't remember about. But we had a map and if we say "Find Wonka" it would show the path through the building to where Willy Wonka was. So we followed it and Wonka (Johnny Depp of course) was in a stairwell. And we talked a bit. And the next day Wonka and I were together and waiting for the Hatter but he was late and Wonka suggested we leave without him. LOL. Weird. I think there were more parts to it but I forget everything when I wake up.

Last night:

I dreamt of large floating fetuses. XD

There was this rich old guy that owned a company that did some kind of cloning/bioengineering stuff. And they made this "clone" and it was a floating embryo. And it grew into a floating fetus. And it was big like a normal person size. They were doing experiments on it. And I think I was with some kind of opposition group. They said that the fetus had not was not "alive" like not like us. No cognitive thought or something. But we discovered it did. And we were pulling it along the air, running from the security, and I was hiding with it when the fetus grew into a person. It was a girl (young adult). And my teammate took her out of the building while I stalled the security personnel. But they KNEW my name! And they said they knew I skipped school and stuff and some other bizarre stuff. And suddenly I'm outside on the beach outside the building we were in. The girl apparently grew wings and was flying about. And the old man was just outside the entrance and she flew to him and called him "father" but the she'd shirk back when he tried to touch her (because of the experiments they did on her as a fetus I guess) and then I think the opposition took her away. And I woke up.

I'm messed up.
Yep I'm 21 today! And I feel so old. My eyesight is going, my joints are aching (my index finger is swollen for no apparent reason), and I'm losing my mind. And I haven't accomplished anything in these 21 years either. Twenty-one and still without a job. That is just sad.

I don't know if I can be able to do co-op. I might have too many credits already. I have to go see the advisor to plan my courses accordingly.

Anyways! Enough with the boo-hoo. *Feathers-of-Love drew me the most beautifullest picture one could ever receive on one's birthday. Go see it! [link] ^____^

Winnie invited me to go see a premier of Mission Impossible 3 with her. It was pretty good, I guess. Some lines were corny though. And the girl? Katie Holmes, that's all you need to know.
Yay! I'm off school! I finished my last exam yesterday and I have about two weeks before I start summer school.

And in that time I have to build a website for GK, draw pictures for Isopets and learn PHP. LOL.
Arrr. George got out again. Karen and I spent the last 30 minutes trying to catch her. We used sunflower seeds and oats as bait. She took it but everytime we'd make a move toward her she'd bolt under the couch. We finally managed to catch her when went under the table behind some books. Karen was on one side and I was on the other. No where to run except through our hands. She chose my side. And I GRABBED her! HAHAHAH!

At least for me.

The Canucks may not have got into the playoffs but they did end on a high note and won their last game in overtime. And the trio all scored in this game too! I hope everyone comes back next year. I'd sure hate to see some of the players be traded off. Well one can hope. Til next year Canucks.
Oh no! Canucks lost! ;_; Sharks won 5-3. Sob. Sob. They have one more game but they won't make the playoffs this year! Darn it. Well, who am I going to cheer for now?

Phew! I've just finished 3 finals in the last 3 days. I'm so tired of studying. And I probably didn't do too well either. Well, at least I can finally rest a bit. My next final is on the 21st. Matrix algebra then computer science on the 24th. Then I'm finally free!!!
Have I said how much I hate lab reports?! Well I do. A lot. Thank goodness it's the last one for the year. But I'll have to finish it first...if I ever do. I'll have to since it's due Friday. AEIAACH! I have THIS due and the cpsc lab assignment due AND 3 back to back finals to study for! EEEEE! Multivariable Calculus, Microbi lab techniques and biochemistry! How am I going to manage??? The 11th is mightly close. I've gotta cram like I've never cramed before.

In other news, I've been selected to be the Golden Key webmaster for 2006/07! Yay! Winnie and Vicki helped me with my interview. (THANK YOU!) I was the only candidate though. Hahah. It would have been sad if I didn't get it. I have so many plans to vamp up and completely redo their site. It's hideous right now. --->http://www.ubcgoldenkey.org/ You'd think you'd expect better for university as prestigous as UBC. I wonder who designed it?

I'll take a before-and-after screenshot after I finish the new site design. ^__^ I hope I live up to their expectations. I kind of gave them the impression that I am the best web designer in the world.... But I'm not... -_-; I've only made ONE crappy site about cats in highschool that's not uploaded on the web and an unfinished personal/art site that floating around on geocities since I don't like the design anymore.

Well it's very late right now. And I've got to finish my assignments tomorrow. See ya.
My feet hurt, my shoes are leaky and I have a bunch of homework to be done. But that doesn't stop me from skating!

It was the last day of skating at Thunderbird. They are going to demolish it soon to make the new centre for the 2010 Olympic games. It's sad since I've only started stating there like 3 weeks ago. I went with Winnie today. We were singing songs and admiring the people who could do jumps and turns. Then after we wrote on the wall where some other people wrote goodbye messages. Making their mark before the building is torn down I guess. Heehee a little boy thought we were vandalizing the wall. Little does he know that it doesn't matter anymore. Bauer Rink will be gone soon.

Now where will I go now? Hmm maybe I should start swimming.

After I wanted to go to Petcetera. Just to browse around, I guess. I wasn't planning to buy anything. I cohersed Winnie to come along with me. Heehee. I checked out the fish I wanted. But the Rupert Petcetera didn't have any plants for sale. Well, a few but those were like the left overs!

They had a tank of mice though! Aww! They were so cute! Such small little darlings with big ears. I wanted a brown and white one. Ah but I have George and Lenny already. And Ma forbids I bring any more home.

I'll stick with fish. At least she can't complain about invisible non-existant fleas. ;P
OMG Angels and Demons (by Dan Brown) is SOOO GOOD. It's even better than Da Vinci Code! They should me a movie of that this instead! I guess if they did it WOULD be an R-rated movie. I don't want to spoil it for anyone who hasn't read it. But omg Dan Brown really knows how to write! I never saw it coming! Talk about plot twists! I thought I had it all figured out! And I said "It's the always the person you least suspect". I didn't even know. I wasn't even close! OMG. READ IT.
I went skating on Monday at Thunderbird. I never realized the centre is so big! So many hockey rinks. That's where the hockey stuff is going to be played during the Olympics in 2010 I think. But yeah! It's very big! Not a lot of people were there skating either so it was very nice. A lot of leg room. There were I think 2 figure skating capable people there too! They were doing all sorts of pretty spins. So cool. Karen's friend said that there is a guy that comes in some of the time who does jumps!

I got my math 221 midterm back today and I got such a low mark! I didn't fail that's good news and I did better than on the first midterm but argh! I studied so hard for it and all I have to show for it is this low low mark. >:(

I'm so sleepy and hungry right now.
Ooo it's so cold! It's been raining and snowing all day. My socks and shoes got all wet. I really need new shoes. They are leaky.

I was giving out movie tickets to a premier tonight and I managed to give one to a friend and the other to a guy that sat next to me on the bus. He was very happy. Said it couldn't have come at a better time since he has nothing to do tonight and he owes someone a movie but he's short on cash. :)

I feel really good. I made someone's day happier and that makes me feel very good.

He was cute btw. ;D
OMGosh I love Lady and the Tramp! I got the DVD today and watched it too. Lady is so sweet! The last time I watched it was so long ago and now I actually understand what they are saying! :D

I spent the day playing the Sims2 that I borrowed from the library when I should have been doing my lab report. It's pretty fun but my people grow old too fast! And they confiscated my babies! :(

Soon soon. Woohoo. XDDD
So I'm back from the DevelopMental Tour. It was pretty interesting. But they didn't have time to get into depth about anything. BUT they gave us a free textbook! But it's all a scheme to get us to program stuff for Windows so more people will use it. Microsoft is so ingeniuously sneaky. LOL

Oh well back to programming.
AH the Isopets website is not working! NOOO I need my regular dose of Isopets!...even though the site's not up yet. ;_; I want to talk to people!

Haven't been drawing much. I've been so busy. I managed to finish my math homework ahead of time though. So proud of myself. Heheh.

Tomorrow I'm going to some Microsoft Develop Mental workshop or something like that. I'm pretty psyched about it.
I should update more often.

I went skating on Friday with Karen and Winnie and them. It was time to test out my new skates! I considered not going and I probably shouldn't have given that I probably did pooring on my biochem midterm today. But it was fun and I would have proably regretted not going.

When I first stepped on the ice it was so slippery! I didn't remember it being so slippery. I had to use some cones and move along the sideboards. But that gave me a chance to relearn how to stop. XDDD It was ok after when the ice was more "used" more friction I guess. Hahah I tried to do some spins but I'd always fall or lose my balance. I bruised my knee but that's ok. I like bruises.

Heehee it was funny because I ended up marrying Michelle (she proposed) and then divorcing her and then running off with the lawyer (Vicki). I wanted Michelle's mittens when she wouldn't give them to me I declared I was pregnant and turns out she's a GIRL! Oh the scandal! Hehehe it was just like a soap opera. And it probably has been done before. Ah but I wouldn't know. I don't watch soaps.
Oh I feel so blah today for some reason. Maybe it's the impending doom of going back to school tomorrow. Sigh. I won't be able to sleep in any more. My beauty sleep! I need it! ;-;

Sigh. I have a math midterm on wed and biochem on next monday but I'm so not ready for either. Then the second round of midterms is about to begin. When will it all end?!

And the microbi lab I have to read is so long.

I want to get some guppies that's what I want. Lots and lots of guppies.
I really like this photo of George. She's so photogenic! Posted by Picasa

Yaay! Jeff Buttle won bronze! WOOO! And of course Plushenko won Gold. I love them both. XDD

Go here it is the most catchy tune ever and the animation is pretty cool too.
My dad's crazy. He planted a tree in front of our house. Right in the middle of nowhere. And it's a very tall stick thin tree too. Sort of like a lightning pole. It's so ugly and embarrassing! >:(

Anyhoo. I wasted another day today. I went to the aquarium in the morning with Karen. They are nothing there now! The lionfish are gone and the frogs are blocked off because of the renovations. But I took some pics while I was there. With the Flower of Delirium! It is another project I'm starting something like Monkey Monkey I guess. People think we're crazy now. Taking pictures with a flower.

We also went to the post office and we bought a lot of day of issue envelopes. They are so pretty but so expensive! Haha but Karen said consider it an investment.

Later on we ate lunch at the Cactus Club. I had some pasta and Karen had a Teriyaki chicken rice bowl. I'm so full. It was a 3:00 lunch! Oy. And we had Calamari too. Mmm it was so good.
Yay! We bought "free" ice skates from Canadian Tire today! I finally have my own skates again. I can't to try them out. Apparently mine are Piruoette! I didn't know. Now I'll have to learn how to do some turns on my toes. XDDD
Ok here's a better pic of Sibylla. I drew it on the bus. I seem to draw a lot of things on the bus.

I did a Valintine picture of salukis too. On the bus. Coloured it yesterday. I'm thinking to entering it into a contest at DA.

Eee so it's reading break! An entire week off...to study. Yep I've got so much to do. Math and biochemistry to study for. I've failed both compsci and matrix algebra midterms so I must do waaay better on the next ones. Bleh I hate math.

Sibylla is a pretty name. Pink why pink? Dunno.
I was being dramatic. I'm better now. XD
Ma gave me the "doctor" talk again. She wants me to be a doctor so badly. She always insists that she believes that I can do it. But I KNOW I won't make it. I barely got over the whole micb co-op thing. If I can't get into that I won't be able to get into med. I would be just setting myself up for a big let down.

My grades aren't high enough anymore either. I've sort of lost all motivation for school. It isn't just a sudden thing. I've noticed this since high school. I'd slack off but I still did moderately well so I let myself slide some more.

Maybe it's because I don't have any optimistic views of the future. I just want a job where I'm told what to do. I don't care if it's monotonous. I just don't care. Why am I taking microbiology? I can't see myself ever working in a lab. Especially not as a career. How about computer science? I'm kidding myself. Sure I like it. But I'm not good at math. And I'm definately not a very good programmer. Still I plunge forward. Dragging more likely and I'm digging my heels in too.

See this type of attitude is not what a real doctor should be. There are more deserving people than me and the interviewers would know it. I can't even communicate very effectively. I stutter when asked a question. I take forever to think of a decent answer to simple questions about MY OWN experience. My mind is all muddled and I don't know what to do about it.

I know I'm letting my mom and my grandpa down. It tears me up inside. Days like these I want to just lay down, rest and never get up again.
Ha I've been drawing like crazy for Isopets these past few days. Don't know why. Maybe they are close to opening?! I am so excited to see how the site is. There are such talented artists working for it and I'm happy to be a part of that! My items are crap though. I like doing shopkeepers, at least I can do them semi well.

Well I should start studying for the MICB323 midterm. At least read over the labs. After this midterm I won't have any more until after the reading break. Hopefully I will be able to contribute a lot more to Iso.

Woo! I hope they open soon!
OMGosh I failed my midterms AGAIN! Sob sob. Must study harder.

Anyhoo. Canucks won! In your face Calgary! Woo! I don't know why but I always love watching the Canucks beat the Flames. Moreso than other teams. Heheh.

I want it. Creative Zen Vision:M! Must have it...
The first real iPod killer?
Well, I don't want to study. But what's new?

Started playing GoPets again for some reason. Here's my little blue beagle-type pup, Calston :)
I just finished another lab today. I think I may have put too much stuff in one of the tubes. Ah well.

I cleaned G/L's tank finally. Heehee they were living in garbage. Literally. I dumped my starbucks frap cup in so they'd eat the whip cream and Karen dumped her pocky boxes in, which they chewed up.

I've been wasting too much time again. I've been playing a trial version of Fish Tycoon and it's so addicting! Now Karen's playing it too! And my trial version's over :(

The pic is a concept sketch of how Chasm and Aurora would look older. I wanted them to look a little bit deer-like than normal sheep.
Happy Chinese New Year!
Started drawing salukis again for some reason. They are such beautiful dogs. I think of them as furrier versions of greyhounds.

Sigh. I sketch a lot these days. I have a ton of pictures to start and finish but I never want to work on the computer. Bleh. Phooey.

I like salukis.

I'm so sad! I just failed my first two quizzes of the term! Not a very good start ;_;
Lone Wolf
You'd turn into a lone wolf! Like a lone wolf you
can coup perfectly well by yourself and do not
feel the need for others company. However like
a wolf you were once part of a pack and you can
tolerate and get along okay with people when
met with them. You are protective and loyal to
the close friends you have but, will always be
a true loner at heart

What animal would you turn into?
