Me: Dinner tomorrow?

Jack: Sure 🙂

Me: Cool! Does 5 work?

no wait, 5:30

Jack: ya, that’s fine

Me: Thanks 🙂

Ok, I forgot I have a thing at 5:50. Do you wanna do a short meal at 5 or a long meal at 6:15?

Jack: Let’s do the 5pm

Me: Or do you wanna switch the day so we can have longer? I can do Friday or Saturday dinner.

Jack: I can do Saturday at 5 🙂

Me: O wait. I goofed. Saturday is my choir concert and I have to eat fast :/ Sorry. Next Wednesday?

Jack: Hmm…next Tuesday?

Me: I already have plans. Next Thursday? LOL this is sad

Jack: Ya that works. We can do tonight at 6:15 if that’s better

Me: I don’t wanna make you wait that long to eat. And we might go longer than 6:15

Jack: It’s fine


As you can see my life is crazy and my brain has been reduced to noodles. Probably ramen ones. On the plus side I have awesome friends. And, no, Jack and I are not dating. 😛

Too much school makes you old

Ah, the joys of being so busy you can’t see straight! Well, I can see straight, but if I get any busier I think I might just begin to pull my hair out!!

This evening was my last performance in a humorous play written and performed in English: Giancarlo Menotti’s “The Old Maid and the Thief.” The plot is full of twists and turns, melodrama, and puns. I played the town gossip, who is quite an old woman! T’was an interesting experience for me.
You can see from the picture that I’m learning another skill. I was inspired by a friend of mine who was knitting the most beautiful scarf in one of my classes, and decided that I just had to have a go at it myself. Currently I’m a little less than half done.  I usually play the young woman whose heart is breaking from unrequited love 😛

Adventures in Dorm-Land

Tonight I had an adventure. An exciting adventure filled with mystery and terror, deception and betrayal.

It all started out innocently enough when I used an available newspaper to make a sailor’s hat. I then discovered that I had been transformed into a pirate king, my dorm room into my prized vessel and my roommate and visiting friend my crew. Ah, we had great times, we three. My roommate, being a freshman, naturally was assigned to swab the decks scrupulously, while my friend, a senior, became my first mate. Off we sailed to storm the castle (otherwise known as the front desk…)! They gave in with hardly a fight – how could they do otherwise when they were trembling with fear at the sight of us? (Did I mention that my weapon was my fierce and hardy hairbrush?…) It may also have had something to do with the fact that a girl standing in the near vicinity was wearing a banana costume….

As we sailed away in triumph there was mutiny on the Bounty as my first mate attempted to steal my hat, and thus my honour and power. She failed in her attempt, but in the process my hat was irreparably damaged. Whereupon it became Caesar’s crown, and I the emperor himself!! (wait…pronouns…) She assumed the role of an assassinating senator claiming that the pen (her weapon) was mightier than the sword (luckily I had no sword). Thus commenced a war of entrance with she on the outside and her sister and me inside. Eventually a truce was called and terms of peace drawn up. Having somewhat to do with broken flip-flops and wanting to go to bed.

These were grand times, I tell you! Times of danger, adventure, and most of all, fun.
