New years party was fun at Mary Lee’s. I had more drinks that night than I did the whole year.

School returns. Taking 6 credits. 3 psychology 3 Communication. The art of persuasion was supposed to change my life…guess what? It didn’t. Psychology of human sexuality however…Best class ever!

Birthday party two weeks later was nice and small since my friends are scattered around north america. We (remaining friends in Cape Breton) partied at my place and played board games. I’m the scene it! and scene it! Disney Queen!

Dalhousie- Day 1

 I started my first day at Dal today and boy was it stressful. I was so nervous last night about getting the bus that I barely slept. I was scared that I’d get on the wrong bus and end up in a part of town I didn’t recognize. But I got the right bus an hour early so that if I got lost, I’d have time to walk around. Thankfully, I got to the right place after being lost for only 15 minutes. So next week, I’ll know where I’m going right away. I got my buspass today. Had to wait in line for that for about 30 minutes. Trying to find the building I had to get the pass in was quite the chore too. But I’ve learned so far the Seymour street, University Ave and the Henry Hicks building are important. As long as I can find them, I’m ok. I don’t have classes friday’s, but I think I’m going to go into campus to go to the bookstore. That way I can do some reading this weekend and be prepared for classes on monday. If I can afford the books that is.
 
Anyway, Now that I’ve calmed down from all the intensity this afternoon, I think I’m ready for bed. Adios Amigos!

Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin dead

Well, everyone knew it would happen eventually, but it’s still a very sad event. I can’t believe it was a stingray that killed him. But all the articles and statements said he died happy and saying "Crocs Rule". RIP Steve! The animal kingdom loves you.

Day 27 On the Alien planet

"If tears could build a stairway and memory a lane, I’d walk right up to heaven and bring you home again."
 
  It’s been 45 days since grandma died. It’s going to be really hard to be in port hawkesbury this year. Grandma was the staple in our family and it’s just going to be heartbreaking knowing she’s not there now. So many bad memories. When do they end?

Day 19 on the alien planet

Well, here I am,alone. It’s been 19 days since I left the Cape. I’m starting to get a little home sick. I miss my kitten and my friends. Dad calls about twice a week. Which surprises me cause I didn’t think he would. But it’s good. I’m glad he does.
 
I like the apartment and pretty well have everything set where I want it to go. I do plan to buy a new desk soon, since mine was broken in transit. So when i get that, I may need to rearrange some things.
 
I’m trying not to spend money, which isn’t too hard since I don’t really leave the apartment except for groceries. I want to go bowling, but I don’t want to waste money. I was hoping that when Justin was in town, we could go, but we ended up not getting together. However, Leah and Kyle are coming home from camp this week. So they may stop in for a bit and we can head to the lanes for a match. Hopefully anyway. Or they might stop in on there way back to NB from the island. Don’t know for sure yet.
 
I’m waiting for the dal website techs to reset my password so I can log into my account and get my class schedule information. I don’t want to apply for a job until I’m certain of the hours I can work when I go back on the 7th. I think I’m only going to be able to work fridays and saturdays.  I know my classes are all over the place, morings from 9 am til 10 pm. But I’m not sure what days.
 
I’m glad I at least have the internet up here. Otherwise I’d be seriously shack wacky. I made some new friends on bolt and they keep me company when all my other friends aren’t online.
 
I think i’ll go now. My tummy is crampy.
