I saw the sign and it opened up my mind.

I’m not actually groovin’ to Ace of Base right now, but I do have “The Sign” in my head now because I just ran into a sign that I should go to bed. I finally picked up the pace on writing that paper of enormous proportions but it’s late and I am starting to feel […]

I know it would have been a totally risky thing to do, but I kind of wish that I had booked a trip to Boston before exams. Easter weekend with the biggest prize of all–the Davetron. But who am I kidding? I’ve barely started this massive, complicated essay that makes my head hurt. I’ve got […]

Move over, Murphy.

Everything that could possibly have gone wrong today went wrong; but I didn’t cry once! Go me! I am a total rockstar! Okay, so I did whine a little. Just a little! Don’t get me wrong. I am no fragile flower, but you’d think that while waiting for my uterine lining to escape (now that’s […]

Can’t fight the seether

Is it so hard to understand the concept of keeping quiet in the library? You’re here “studying” at a university library, a law school library no less, so I imagine someone introduced you to the concept of keeping it down in this hallowed place of silence. So that means you are being insolent. I have […]

Reliving the final moments of 4th year, Dave and I are sitting side-by-side in my kitchen with open laptops and stern faces. I’m trying to get work done. Dave is actually working. Such is our life. It annoys me that I rarely find my focus when it comes to school. I get excited about some […]

Ready for take-off

There is way too much going on and it’s going on around me. I’m not making anything go. It’s frustrating. Thankfully, David and I are continuing bliss week together here in Toronto. We had a grand time in Montreal (mostly Repentigny to be exact) laughing and loving the new addition to the family. Since Dave’s […]

It’s Gilmore Girls night, yo. And I want to hype myself up more generally. GG to me! (Dave’s Francofriends seriously say this all the time so I no longer think of it in gaming terms but as Quebecois props.) Ha! But really, who am I kidding? GG only stands for Gilmore Girls tonight. The title […]

Cloud 9

Remember the 3 applications that turned into 3 interviews? Well, they just turned into 3 offers. I don’t usually like having to make tough decisions, but today I’m a huge fan of choice. 😀

No Shingles This Time ‘Round

I am struggling to figure out what to write for this essay. I have to finish it by Tuesday night if I want some breathing room in Taipei, so I’ve got to focus my thoughts a bit better. Sigh. It’ll work out. It always does. At least that is what I am telling myself these […]

Another Kind of Narc

My eyes! My eyes! Okay, it’s not that dramatic. My eyes just don’t want to stay open. I feel like the narcoleptic Argentinian in Moulin Rouge. You so know that I’m playing “Come What May” and singing along to both Satine and Christian’s parts even though we’re well into “quiet time” here at the Peej. […]
