i can haz?





Yes. I failed BEDA.

Studying for exams kind of took over my life and I also forgot about it until I was lying in bed, hoping to fall asleep. It was a really good idea, in theory, but I had a feeling that it would fail…sadly.

Anyway, exams went well and and marks are decent, but I definitely have to do better next year. I still find it surprising sometimes when I get marks in the seventies when I was used to high 80’s in high school, but then I look at the distribution and realise that in the 7 courses I took this year, only two of them had students with marks in the 80’s, and in both those courses I received marks in the 80’s…so that’s pretty sweet. Also, in one of those courses I was one of only three students who were in that marking range, and that I find very impressive (if I do say so myself).

Since I arrived back home in Toronto I’ve been pretty busy. I only had one week off before I started work, but I spent that time clearing my room of all of the crap I accumulated over the 19.5 years of my life. I think I ended up with about 15 bags of trash, 6 bags of clothes to go to goodwill, and 4 rubbermaid containers full of stuffed animals (and I gave 3 full bags of those to the children’s wish foundation). It was really entertaining to go through all of the memories I’ve collected over the years (needless to say, I’m a pack rat) and at times is was hard to get rid of things, but all in all it felt good to purge the clutter.

I decided to clean out my room because I felt like it was time to do one, final redecorating project. My parents won’t be moving out of this house (at least within the next 20 years) so it will be nice to have a nice, grown-up bedroom to come home to – unlike the formerly baby pink and blue room I had up to a  week ago. We’ve been working really hard at getting the room finished so every day after work during this past week we’ve been priming and painting, and yesterday night and about all of today we tore up the nasty carpet (that’s been in here since our renovations in 2000) and put down gorgeous, chocolate brown pergo. My walls are a sort of beigey colour and there’s one, deep purple accent wall. There’s currently basically no furniture in here except for my dresser, a cd/dvd shelf, a night table, a wicker chair and a purple ottoman. I’m getting a double bed next week along with basically the best thing EVER: bookshelves. I’m getting a bunch of bookshelves to fill an entire wall. This is so exciting to me because ever since I saw Beauty and the Beast when I was like, two, I’ve wanted a wall of books, like in the opening sequence, “Belle”.

Now, I’ll settle for the bookshop, but I’d REALLY love the the library in the castle…but that seems a little unrealistic. Don’t you think?


*sigh* If only….

Anyway, I’m off to watch more [Scrubs]. All of my friends who watch HIMYM with me all watch scrubs, so I need to watch it too.

Good day, peeps!

beda 15… unfair

Ya ya ya… I’ve missed a few days of beda.

Anyway. This pillow is new on urbanoutfitters.com . I want it but it’s “online only” and can only be shipped within the United States.


So, if there’s anyone in the states who wants to buy me this pillow and I’ll send you a cheque, that’d be great.

8 days guys!

So I shut down my computer before I realized that I didn’t post my beda today, so I’m posting now from the handy wordpress app on my iPhone. Hurrah for technology!
So today was…well let me tell you how today was in a handy point form list!
• I woke up
• I had cereal for breakfast
• I watched Greek from last night
• And The Hills
• And The After Show from last Thursday
• Then I read about 100 pages of The Hunger Games
• I had a yummy lunch, then ate some mini-eggs while watching What Not to Wear.
• I felt guilty about eating said mini-eggs
• I read some more of The Hunger Games
• Then I re-re-watched last nights episode of How I Met Your Mother…it’s such a good episode.
• then I watched about 4 more from this season.
• then I listened to an episode of Smart Mouths Podcast while pretending to start studying for my Shakespeare final on Saturday.
• Then I had some soup for dinner.
• Then I watched MORE episodes of himym.
• Then I brushed my teeth, climbed into bed and wrote a blog about how I effectively wasted an entire day that should have been studying.

Oh well, I’ll do it tomorrow. Besides, I did ROCK my exam yesterday…I deserved a day off…….

11 days guys…11 days.


b. tonight’s episode of  himym. it was filled with BRo Love goodness. I actually “squeed” at one point.

Amazon. You idiots.

I am too fuming to really blog right now. But basically, as you all probably know, Amazon has removed the rankings of the majority of the books containing homosexual content, including biographies of homosexual celebrities including Stephen Fry and Ellen Degeneres, and deeming them as “adult” content, so therefore they are stripped of their sales rankings.

Well, I would but I have to study.

I just needed to express how PEEVED I am at the world. Why do people have to be so, words cannot even explain how outrageous this all is.

Gahhhhh I’m so pissed.

Oh yeah, there’s 12 days until we’re popping the Pol Roger.
