Golden Girls and Celine Dion.

That’s right. My night consists of watching Golden Girls reruns, and youtubing some of Celine Dion’s newest cd. I just discovered the song Always Be Your Girl, and I can’t stop listening to it! It’s just really sweet 🙂

I’ve also been spending a lot of time editing pictures that I took throughout the first semester but never used. I may have even taken a mini photo shoot with my Christmas tree. It was my first time playing with bokeh 😉 Lots of fun still learning on this break even though I’m not even a week in.

I have to admit I’m a bit nervous for second semester. I may have admitted that in a previous post, but I can’t remember, so there it is. I e-mailed my program co-ordinator to try to change my schedule, but unless I can find someone to switch with me, I’ll be stuck. So I guess I will try that next week, but I feel like I have the worst schedule, so we will see if anyone wants to take it……
I finished my English and Humanities courses which were mandatory, so I was able to drop them, but the school still stuck me in school for one class each day. My commute is longer than the classes which I think is the biggest bummer. But everything happens for a reason I suppose.
Today I called the school and yesterday they had dropped my English for me, and today a request had been sent in to drop my Humanities as well. Then I signed up for my online General Elective which is typically taken in second year, but I just want to get it out of the way for now 🙂 I wanted to take a Spanish in class, but it didn’t look like it was being offered so I’m going to do Introduction to Sociology online. Hopefully that will be something interesting to learn about.

The past couple days we have also been slowly getting marks trickle in, and it’s torture waiting for them all! I’ve bee checking the website every half hour or so. But it’s when I’m not looking that they come in – of course! I am still waiting to see back from my Commercial exam, Printing exam and colour swatch assignment, History exam and Editing exam. I’m really antsy to see what my overall grade is. I’ve never worked so hard for anything in my life, and I’m really pleased to see how far I have come 🙂

Over my first week of holiday, I have been busy/lazy. As if the two come hand in hand. I’ve had a lot to do, but I’ve been so tired, that everything has been taking a while to get done. I did however go visit a friend in my home town which was fun. I hadn’t been there since the summer and I used to visit at least bi-weekly. So that was neat. Other than that I’ve been visiting with friends and CLEANING! Tomorrow I have to do the big all-over house clean! That’s my least favorite thing to do. Also laundry. I hate that the most I think. I have a load sitting in the washing machine right now that needs to be moved to the drier… And I think I have about 3 more loads to wash….. okay maybe two. But I’ve already done two, so thats embarrassing none-the-less. I can’t even blame it on school anymore! And I got all of my new clothing in from Cyber Monday this week! One item from American Eagle was wrong in that order, so I’ll just have to do an exchange. Nothing big 🙂

I realize this could possibly be the longest post I’ve ever written on here….. Besides my introduction post. That was a doozie. Maybe this one is longer? I don’t know! I was clearly in a writing mood today. I am so in the zone that I haven’t even hit replay on Youtube for my Celine Dion song for a while!

I guess I should be productive in some other area of my life for now!

If you’d like to keep up with me, follow me on my multitude of social medias!


If I don’t post on here again tonight or tomorrow, have a fantastic weekend!!
