9:24 am - Why?
Why does this have to happen right before I'm about to go back to school? The GO bus drivers say they might go on strike on September 19th. True that's after I start school, but what if things aren't resolved by then? What if I have to find a new way to get to school? What if I have to end up driving to school? I just don't think I have either the time or the money for that!

This would be a major inconvenience for me and it really scares me shitless! I hope those bus drivers realize that thousands of people in the GTA depend on them and they'll be letting us down for their reasons of causing this strike. You know, sometimes I wish that people in general would really think things through before going on strike, because (I know this seems heartless of me to say) they're being extremely selfish. Don't get me wrong--I believe in equal rights for all, but this is really pissing me off!

I REALLY hope that it doesn't come to this, because commuting to Toronto every day would be a bitch!

7:25 am - B-Day Shit
Hey, y'all! Today I turn 26 years old! Wow! I can't believe what I've done in the past year: going back to college and kicking ass, learning stuff I never thought I would be able to do, welcoming a new member to my family, and making some great friends both in real life and online.

As far as my presents go, they're mostly games I've put on reserve that aren't out yet (Batman: Arkham City and The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword), but hopefully today I'll be able to get the new "Weird Al" Yankovic album and the latest book in the Mercy Thompson series. Well, first I'm gonna go get my free breakfast at Denny's.

And, well... I guess that about wraps that up. So I'll probably be away for most of the day, so C YA!

8:39 pm - The Smurfs
Yes, I admit I went to go see this movie today. Since I've watched the cartoon when I was a kid, I figured that I might as well go see it and find out what it's like.

You know what? It was actually pretty good. It's kind of like the Muppets, where it looks like it's meant for kids but there are also parts that are meant for only adults to understand and appreciate. If you see it, I guarantee that it'll make you feel like a kid again.

One part I found frustrating was that they changed the whole plot from the show. In the show, Gargamel wanted to capture the Smurfs so he could melt them down and turn them into gold. In the movie, he wanted to capture the Smurfs for their essence so he could increase his magic. But hey; if it works, then it works. Also, whoever was in charge of casting did a great job in giving Hank Azaria the role of Gargamel because he was absolute hilarious!

Now I'm trying to determine if Neil Patrick Harris actually jumped at the chance to be in this movie, or if someone had to talk him into it. Now whenever I watch "How I Met Your Mother", all I can see is the Smurfs climbing all over Barney. Man, I really hope it doesn't go any farther than that!

9:34 pm - The Game of Awesome
You all know how there's "The Book of Awesome"? Well right now, I want to talk about The Game of Awesome. I'm sure you all know what it is:

MASS EFFECT 2!!!!!!

I planned on doing a second playthrough with my Renegade male Sheppard, mostly because I haven't played the game in over a year and because I wanted to get some achievements I never got on my first playthrough. The whole time I thought I was going to get bored because I already knew what to expect: I was sorrily mistaken!

Everything about this game completely takes my breath away: the storyline, the combat system, the different events--everything! And since I'm doing this from the Renegade standpoint, I get to see what would happen if I made my character a complete jackass. And you know what? My Sheppard is the type of guy who doesn't take crap from anybody--and that's what a protagonist should be.

Well, so far I've gotten three of the achievements I've been hoping to get, and I want to see where this new story takes me. Oh, and did I mention that this game also has some of my favourite voice actors playing the characters? Well, it does, so BONUS!!!

I can't wait to see what will transpire for my characters when Mass Effect 3 is released. I'll bet it'll take all the great things from Mass Effect 2 and make them even better!

7:02 pm - Canada Day
HOORAY FOR CANADA!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love this country! I'm glad that I was born and raised here. To all you fellow Canadians on LJ, I say we should be proud of who we are and what our country stands for. And to everyone else who enjoys our country, I say thank you very much for your support.

9:28 pm - Holy Shit!
First off, I want to deeply apologize to everyone who reads this as I have been unable to post in the last few weeks... or months. I'm not even sure anymore. =( Well, I promise to make up for it by writing a really long post.

Well, anyway, these past few weeks after final exams have been pretty relaxing for me. Right now I'm trying to spend my time wisely by attempting to get a volunteer position at my local library. I'm really taking this career change seriously, and I feel this will help me to ease into the transition. Hopefully it will improve my resume as well. But then again, there's the possibility that I won't get a position and I'll spend my entire summer doing jackshit since I've been told that the library already has a long waiting list of volunteers; the longest they can keep my application is six months. If that's the case, then I'll already be back in college where I'll definitely get my career placement. At least that'll be good for my resume.

So, this week was pretty good. Last Monday I went to see Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. The acting from Johnny Depp was phenomenal (as usual) and I'm glad they took the story arch in a different direction, but I must say that I think it's time Disney gives that movie a rest. They've already done so much with it that I don't think it's possible to expand on it anymore. I hope they do stop before it ends up becoming a steaming pile of crap.

Today I went and saw Kung Fu Panda 2. It was definitely more action-packed than the first movie, and--although I won't spoil it--it also has a lot more sensitive moments as well. It'll certainly answer a lot of questions that were brought up in the first movie. Why are you even reading this when you should go watch this movie?! Seriously, get your ass away from the computer and go see Kung Fu Panda 2 right NOW!!!!

Well, Sunday is my mother's birthday so tomorrow I'll be taking her to Chinatown. She knows I don't have a lot of money to spend on gifts, so she said I could take her cruising. With what she's had to put up over the last few months, I'd say she deserves this.

8:13 am - Celebration
HAH!!! OSAMA BIN LADEN IS DEAD!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm glad that bastard is finally rotting in Hell where he belongs! Whoever fired the bullet that ended that psychopath's life is a true hero, and he's done the whole world a favour! I know you're not supposed to celebrate death, but I'll make an exception in this case. That son of a bitch was killing for no reason and now we can all rest easily knowing that.

Still, now this is sure to piss off the Al-Qaeda. But at least now they're disbanded with no leader.

8:44 pm - Worst Day Ever
Today has got to be the biggest pile of horseshit I have ever faced in my entire life! It all started with the snow IN FUCKING SPRING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Because of that, it took me two hours to get into Toronto!

And oh no, it didn't stop there. One of my instructors gave me back an assignment which I'll now have to re-do because I didn't get a Satisfactory on it EVEN THOUGH I FOLLOWED EVERY GODDAMN INSTRUCTION SHE GAVE ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In my next class, I got back a test. I got an okay mark but there was one question that left me seriously pissed off because it was so obvious and yet I didn't read the entire question thoroughly. And because of that, I lost half a mark! WHAT THE FUCK DID I DO TO DESERVE THIS CRAP?!


Then on the way home, the retarded Go Bus driver slammed into a parked car on the entrance onto the 401, and I had to wait until the cops came to get their report, then I had to transfer onto another bus, and it took me four hours to get home!!

AW, FUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'M SO FUCKING ANGRY THAT I COULD BREAK SOMEONE'S FUCKING HEAD OPEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
MOTHERFUCKER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

7:23 pm - Goodbye Car
Last week my mother got into a car accident. She's fine (which is the main point), but yesterday we found out that the damage totalled over $11,000. So the experts had no choice but to write it off.

I feel so bad for my mother right now. She's only had that car for almost four years and this had to go and happen to her. I could tell she really liked it, too.

Well, all I can do is hope the best for her.

7:50 pm - No Cat for Me
So it seems my sister has decided to hang on to Devi for the time being despite the little d-bag always messing with the packing. She said that since the cat has this habit of always running out when he sees an open door, she's afraid that he's going to run out of my house and I won't be able to catch him and he's going to climb up a tree or get hit by a car.

I can totally understand with her and I will respect her decision. To be honest, I didn't know how to handle the situation at first. Ever since losing Dusty I've always had these conflicting emotions about getting another cat. I don't know if I can because I'm not sure I'll be able to go through all that pain again if I grow too attached to the cat if I lose it. Losing Dusty was such a painful experience; it was like if I lost my own child.

10:53 am - Crappy Christmas!
Sorry, but no McKenzie Bros. 12 Days of Christmas this year! Yesterday, I ended up getting sick and puked my guts out! I must've caught something that made my stomach disagree with what I was eating! Oh God, why must I be tormented on a day like that?!

7:20 pm - Exams Over!
Sorry for not posting in the longest time! I've been so busy with exams that I've barely had any time for doing other stuff. Well anyway, the first semester is over and I'm on vacation for three weeks! Everything's going great in my classes! I wasn't worried that much over the exams because the lowest grade I've gotten this semester was a B+ on one test. I tell you, I'm doing so well in this course that even I'm starting to get freaked out! Then again, it could be do to all the studying I've done on the GO buses since I don't really have much else to do when I'm riding them. Well, whatever! I'm not going to argue over this if my outlook in this course is pretty good. I can only hope that things will still go well for me in my upcoming classes.

current mood: good

6:16 pm - Sociopath
Yesterday, my mother found out that some son of a bitch hacked her bank account and stole $1000 right under her nose! We learned the transaction came from a Royal Bank ATM on King St., and my mother works up in Bolton! So she changed her card, her PIN number, and the bank reported the incident to the police! I'm hoping they nail that motherfucker soon!

I can't believe this would actually happen to my mother! What has she ever done to deserve this kind of thing?! She's a good, caring, strong woman who only deserves praise for everything she's been through in her life. If I ever find the bastard who did this, I swear to God, I will rip out his balls and shove them down his goddamn throat!

4:24 pm - New-Old Kitty
I got back from Seneca like half an hour ago, and already my mother told me something huge: my sister wants us to take one of her cats in for a few months. Apparently it's because the two cats aren't getting along fast enough so my sister is hoping this will be enough time until Devi stops acting like a little douche.

I have to be honest -- this whole thing is kind of a shock to me. There was a cat living in my house and I don't think there will ever be a replacement for him. On the other hand, I miss having a cat around the house, the cat technically will still belong to my sister and I like playing with Devi.

I just don't know what to make of this.

6:40 pm - Tests
Ah! I've had so many tests in the last few weeks that my brain is on the brink of a nuclear meltdown! There's so many things to cover! It's like the people at Seneca are being complete dicks and giving us tests left, right and centre no matter where we turn! Sometimes I just want to hide somewhere in solitude and not worry about any tests.

Why couldn't reading week be, oh I don't know, be longer than a week? It already feels like I'm just dreading the feeling of going back to school!

But then again, why should I be complaining? I've gotten all A's on my last few tests and this one shouldn't be different. But it's like, "Fuck! All this studying and I barely have any time to do other things!"

Okay, I'm through with my senseless ranting. Now I just want to crawl into a hole and wait for the end of the world.

10:19 am - My Sister's Wedding
Today is finally the big day for my sister! I don't count it for her husband because it's never about them. XD

Anyway, I'm so excited for her. I know that she deeply loves him, and I know they'll have a wonderful life together. And you know what the best part is? My jackass of a father won't be there to ruin everything! YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!

But seriously, I wish all the best for them. And I know the reception is going to kick ass!

9:04 pm - Waste
I took a walk around the lake today and I happened to find out exactly what was being constructed around it. It turns out that the city built up outdoor exercise equipment and I thought to myself, "What a waste of the taxpayer's money!" Seriously, who would even consider putting up outdoor exercise equipment, and in a public area no less?! There are bigger issues involving our municipal government and the morons thought it would be better to put up this crap? That has got to be the most asinine thing I've ever seen!

Here are some other questions that come to mind:
  1. Did it ever occur to anyone that there's a community centre with its own gym right next to the lake as well as a fitness centre in the mall?
  2. Is there anyone who would want to see anyone working out when they're trying to take a relaxing stroll around the lake?
  3. Who's going to use that equipment when winter comes?
Sometimes, I really don't get what the city has planned for us. I'm starting to wonder if this is really in the best interest of the people, or if this is just some half-assed publicity stunt. Either way, it's still a shitty decision to spend the taxpayer's money.

7:06 pm - Fuckin' Slackers
In one of my classes today, I saw some of my fellow classmates hadn't finished their homework even though they had a whole week to do it. Then when the professor was showing the answers, they then copied them down. There's only one word to describe that:

PATHETIC!!!!

This is supposed to be a hands-on program and those idiots copying down all the answers proves they aren't ready for this! All they're doing is wasting both their time and the professor's time! I know from experience that when you're in college, nothing is going to be handed to you. Those morons better learn to grow up or else they'll be kicked to the curb and end up flipping burgers for a living!

6:38 pm
*dusts off keyboard* Man! School is really taking up a huge chunk of my daily routine! Well, the classes are all going well. So far I've gotten to know about five of the people in my program and they all seem really nice. The only thing that's NOT good about it is the daily commute I have to do. Getting up at five-thirty in the morning to prepare myself and get ready for the bus really takes a lot out of me. But other than that, I can gladly say that I'm enjoying this program. And I'd like to let you all know that if I don't update in a while then it's probably because of schoolwork.

current mood: tired
