i dont want to go to work. i really really really don't. i work the next four days to get a day off then go back to work. ack. it's funny whenever i tell someone i'm working lots in a complainy sort of fashion they say "but think of all the money you're making" ...first off i work for minimum wage...and second i'd rather have a week off to just recooperate than make a little money. yeah, i was going to carry on but i'm too tired to type hahaha... needless to say i'm not feeling any bit rested for school and i know i still have two weeks but nothings going to change to allow that to happen...C'est la vie for now!
peace and much love on this boxing day night!

unconsciously you look.
it becomes harder to ignore.
not merely people.
not merely objects.
not literal things.
not just thoughts.
attraction is a misleading thing.
do you think it is?
it grabs my attention.
yet not yours.
Attraction: a force acting mutually between particles of matter, tending to draw them together, and resisting their separation.
things aren't always as they seem.

DANG IT. i even bought an outfit and was sooo loooking forward to going. CRAP. but anyways i got an 8 page paper done, due tomorrow and i really thought i was handing this one in late. so that's good.

currently i am sitting on my bed, cross-legged, surrounded by almost a dozen books about the emerging church, worship, life cycles and young adult ministry. my thoughts are too many to single one out. my pressures are too many to push any aside. my failed attempt at an extention loomes on my heart and the thought of failure perueses through the other complicate senarios in my mind. i want to do anything but what i have to do. i want to have a conversation with someone without one eye on the door waiting for my life to snatch me away. life, i feel as though i'm not really living it merely trudging through it...yet all that i am in i chose. i chose school, thus i have to work, i chose the various ministry positions, the play...what have i done?
..hahaha it all sounds hopeless yet it's not. there is hope. i mean i'm going to be done this semester in like 3 weeks....these assignments wont be there for the rest of my life. and one day i will be able to be normal again!!

every feel contrasted.
like the deep recesses of life are interfolded into who you've become.
to form a melody of mahem.
hahaha...i'm terribly tired and should be in bed, me worky tomorrow *but of course* tonight i watched pretty in pink after work. i love that movie. it makes me want to be in high school again. it makes me want to take risks i know i wouldn't or won't. it makes me want to live life to the fullest and find a friend like duckie. stop laughing at me i'm tired.

Today for lunch I made myself a wrap. mmm you may say, as would I except this time! I sat down to devour my wrap when my dearest mother asked "are those still good" reffering to the wrap shell it' self. To this I merely responded "probably not" yet continued to consume it, I mean I saw no traces of bacteria and really how sick could one get from a bad wrap! Aparrantly plenty sick! I know what Maia is thinking right now... oh I hope Megs isn't off wraps forever she loves them! ...and it's true i do, i do love wraps...yet i shudder right now at the very thought of the one i ate today. It wasn't even that good. *sigh*
haha in other news I've been having a freakin' BUSY week...really good elements including: a 24/7 prayer room *thank you Lord*, art, random leaf fights, great movies*stranger than fiction is so awesome & inside man, i'm gonna be honest and say i can dig it!* , the living word, 3 hour worship sessions, ignoring homework to relax and paint my toe nails, dude snoring in prayer room HA.....and of course not so hot elements such as: current state of belly haha, stress of copious amounts of school work to be done, stress at work, not sleeping well, that the good elements are the best yet most speratic and seldom of times, not seeing my friends enough.......
At the bass of the cross, someone wrote they're sins on a rock and with red paint marked forgiven on it.

Ok class...so this summer I discovered that Christian Bale was going to be in a new movie...so I did some fine internet research and found out it was called The Prestige. I've been waiting a long time for this one and tonight a bunch of us went and saw it *granted most of the people reading this would have been there hahaha* I can honestly say that I really really liked this movie. A whole lot. I totally recommend it. The acting was awesome, Christian Bale is a truly gifted actor. The rest of the cast did a fabulous job as well, Michael Cane is classic, Hugh Jackman from wolvarine to this, another versitle actor. Scarlett Johanson was pretty good and I thought the chick that played the Sarah did a great job. Not to mention gullum guy and David Bowie!! Crazy plot line...yeah just sweet all around definatly didn't let me done. True story, I was a little worried because I've been waiting a while for this one.

I took a sick day. I HATE taking sick days, well i like it but i feel like such a wimp ya know?!
But last night I COULD not sleep for the second night in a row, and this moring my soar throat was no longer just a soar throat but a raging beast that had clawed it's way into my sinus passages and caused great amounts of pressure. My body aches and I was WAY to tired to crawl out of bed at 7:20 for my 8 oclock class..i'm sooo glad i didnt'. I kept waking up though achey and such thinking "what about work!?" So at 10 I called it. no worky for me today, i coudlnt' imagine standing for 8 hours behind the cash register consistancly talking to people. so i called in. I hate that feeling, i know they understand but still they are going to be swamped. *Sigh* C'est la vie!
Also guys, Thank you SO much for all your prayers, my life as crazy as it has been for the last while, is good. My Gran is still in hostpital but daily getting better!! Praise God. And my mom said I could borrow her Visa to make my payments for school. So where as life is not easy street right now and i literally feel like i've been hit by a car *i told janny this and she freaked out "you've been hit by a car!!" haha no no jan, figure of speach* , it is good, and our God is good.
Love you all muchly.

I miss my friends. I hear from them what they did. who they saw. or their plans for the weekend. Oh yeah?! sweet. i have to work. later? no, sorry. I know i sound pesimistic. i'm sorry. just tired. dang it i should be napping not typing! but really complaining is easier to do than try to fix what your complaining about! *i had a good discussion about this in my contemporary church class, its' actually a pet peeve of mine, especially when it comes to peoples complaints on the church! but alas that is another blog*
well kids i'm gonna go shower and go to work.
OH OH ray of funshine for me though...i DO get to hang out with some very lovely people this weekend, i booked saturday off so i could spend lots of time with...ALLY, JOSH and JANICE!

OOh it seems merely days ago *oh wait it was*, in which I was excited about reading. Looking forward to wading through my text books and going back to classes. I knew it wouldnt' last. I've only had three of my 5 classes and already I'm freaked out of my gord! I have SO much reading its not even possible, sure i'm lacking in papers but MAN ALIVE, every class so far has reading journals due not to mention like 6 books for one class! I literally have anxiety pain over it! HA! I ususally dont' stress over school stuff, really, but I don't know.
Wednesday, September 06, 2006
that's right folks class is in session.
So far, I've had one class and honest I'm rather excited about it, it's a small class of 13 and it's on the Contemporary Church. Today I bought 10 books, and no lie I have to buy 6 more still! I'm gonna die, my retnas are gonna implode. That's what I get for taking two english classes and other classes in which the proffs seem to enjoy books emensly. Yet I still seem to be really excited about school...odd yes. Although I do have one dread...and that is walking up for my 8 oclock class. HONESTLY who puts OT theology at 8 in the freakin' morning! bah ha...ha...oooh.
OHOH last night, Kev was here with Dakota and about 2 minutes after they left I hear a knocking and it's Kev. "uhhh I have a slight problem...I looked the keys in my van and Dokota's inside!" ...hahahaha sure enough, I walk to the car and there is Baby D *she's 2 now* sitting almost falling asleep in her chair all buckled up ready to go. The good thing is he didnt' shut the door completely so the light remained on. Normally if you asked Dakota she would unbuckle herself, but alas she was incredibly tired and upon that request she merely started crying and asking "why daddy!" This was the only time I could stop laughing, poor little thing...anyways my bro managed to bend a coat hanger in this nifty formation that slide into the crack of the door and popped that bad boy open!

I saw "Accepted" and honestly, it made me laugh soo much, it was just a really good comedy that I didn't feel "bad" watching. So funny... hahah yeah.
Also I'm gonng start writing a book... "Jesus Loves You but Everyone Else Thinks Your An Idiot" ...I'll tell you my thoughts of today and where this tittle came from ...but that will be for another time.

This post is going to be one of those, I have so much on my mind, heart, and I'm full of this past weeks adventures but there is so much that non will coherently come out. So here is a wee taste of it all...
It has been a very fun week, full of great times and wonderful people. Bonfires, Settlers, Carcason, teaching Drama to youngins, my Nieces and Nephews...
...one of my favorite moments was having Dakota sleep on me after a long day of play and being able to rub her back as she struggled to sleep while coughing. Children are so precious. Some other awesome moments were watching Ella, Rye and Isaac play with my youth and then my friends.
It's also been and "interesting" week...as you have probably read, last week my Dad broke his foot. In the following days my sister had to go to emerg. because of a flue that absolutly wrecked her glands, and my sis in law got severe hives and had to be taken to emerg. twice! Both are fine now but it was just a little crasy. Then a couple of days ago my mom told me that my Grandma had cancer again, it's in her liver, possibly somewhere else *i can't rember where* she seems to be doing ok with it, she is soo strong but it's actuall my grandpa who i'm worried about. He's been drinking again and just does not sound good.
at points this week i've had to just go "what!?!" and either laugh or be still.
It continued with some confusing things but I know they too will be sorted out. . .
I've been trying to work on my conversational skills, because some people are amazing at it, and I, well I feel that I could use some work. The beauty of it is I dont mind silence...but it has the possibility of making people awkward.
i'll end with something that makes me smile.

There is a Shakespeare Festival in Vancouver called Bard on the Beach. I FINALLY got to go to one of their productions. On saturday some of us went and saw A Midsummer's Night Dream. OH MAN ALIVE it was soo amazing! Honest I haven't laughed that hard at a play in a long time if ever! They did a brillant job, not mucking with the origanal text but adding modern aspects and their own flare where apropriate! *The backdrop is the landscape of Van. the mountains and ocean*It was a lot of fun. Before hand Janny, Maia, Mel and I met up with Rye and Thanney and just hung out at Granville Island. I really like Vancouver I should spend more time there. Also i should really take advantage of the theatre scene in Van.
...and yes we found another hat store!!!
