It was nearly that painful. It’s done. I finished my paper & submitted it to my prof. The only thing left is my exam on Monday & I’m not worried about that one at all. I’m more excited about being done the semester! I have so many non-school books I want to read! And Zelda to play! (though I have been eyeballing Super Mario Odyssey lately... hmmm). And I miss the gym! So many things!
I did end up going for a walk, got my latte, picked up lunch & swung by the Canadian Tire Christmas Showroom. They had these Christmas trees in red, blue, purple & white (the red one reminds me of Lydia’s wedding dress at the end of “Beetlejuice” ). Totally not my thing. I prefer traditional Christmas colours in trees/decor (dark green/dark red/white lights, maybe a bit of silver).
What kind of Christmas stuff do you like? Would you buy a colourful tree?
Not Thursday but whatever. Some of these popped up in my Facebook timehop thing so I decided to share them here. For those of you who didn’t know, 4 years ago I went to graduate school at University of Toronto for a Master’s in Information Science (double major in library science and archives & records management). I finished one year but did not return for the second (for reasons too complicated for IG). I did enjoy my time there!
The sign on this clock was there the entire time I was a student at the iSchool, no idea what happened with it. I’ve been tempted to visit & see if it’s still there. Lol
I remember trying to read this chapter when I had a fever & raging flu & cried for 2 hrs because my brain was too fuzzy to comprehend the material.
We actually did this in class.
The weird furniture pile in the basement by my locker, it was quiet though & a good spot to study!

It’s all so very true, sadly. I never understood why people want to tear down those who are successful (or working hard to do something good). Is it jealousy? Do they feel inferior or insecure? It’s crazy how people prefer to see bad things in people & use that to chip away at someone’s credibility, sanity, privacy, success. Whether it’s family, friends, or celebrities, everyone gets attacked. How about being encouraging?? Treat others as you wish to be treated. And if you have nothing helpful or nice to say, mind your business & keep your mouth shut!! Yes, you are allowed to have an opinion but that doesn’t mean it’s appropriate to express it. Think before you speak!! Are you helping or hurting? Or just trying to be “right”? (do you even know the whole story? have the true facts? know the people involved? or are you jumping on the bandwagon? did you “hear” or do you “know”?). Critical thinking friends, it’s a skill. As is decorum. Learn it.
Yay!!! I’m done school Monday & I’m free to sleep, read, game, go to the gym, etc. without feeling guilty! Lol
A bit of crunch time this weekend but I’m cool with that. What is everyone up to?? Holiday stuff?
Christmas bits are up so it’s time to watch Harry Potter. Yes, I have an essay to write (& an exam to study for), but Christmas & HP are important to me.
My tree (& Dumbledore)
Ginormous LEGO Hagrid at Chapters Indigo at Eaton Centre in 2011
My HP box set of all the movies (Wizards Collection)
Same box, opens up (has secret compartments in addition to movies (DVD + Blu-Ray + tons of extras), maps, scrolls, & other fun bits.
Throwback Thursday! 1970’s family Christmas edition! First pic is all my aunts/uncles + grandma on my mom’s side (excluding my uncle Dave who I think is taking the photo) - Dec/1979. My mom is the lady with the long hair. Unfortunately my grandmother & uncle Bob are no longer with us. Second pic is all the cousins (again, mom’s side) + my sister (Dec/1977). I’m in the pink dress (my sis is the cranky baby). Lol
Happy Christmas fam jam! #throwbackthursday#tbt#tbt1977#tbt1979#tbt70s#famjam#christmas#momsside#missthem#photoofaphoto#showneyours
Nice to come home to happy mail! My BookOutlet order from their Black Friday sale (14 books for around $50, not bad!). can you spot both kitties in the 3rd pic? I didn’t realize Murphy was being a creeper until after I took the photo, usually only Calvin likes the book unboxings.
Running errands when I should be studying. It’s good to get out & run around a bit though. Stupid migraine is lingering around the edges, noooo. Why is it 10C outside? Why no snow?? I need caffeine & chocolate. Maybe some real food too. Yes, I’m rambling.
This is pretty much where I’m at right now. I have an appointment downtown today, exam tomorrow, getting all those holiday cards done/sent, write a paper & last exam is on Monday. Whew! I hope it goes by fast. I want it to be done already!
