So, this year I won't be able to go home for Halloween.
Since there also seems to be nothing going on in Fergus, Mike isn't going home either. That being said, Mike told me this is the first year, his mom isn't going to carve a pumpkin (since she is alone). I said we should carve one anyway, then take a picture and send it to her. Kinda like, hai we did a pumpkin for you!
... but then what the heck are we going to do with it?
There's no where to put it in residence, especially on the 3rd floor.

So as a solution to this problem, Mike suggested we leave the pumpkin on a random lawn and run. Then we thought that would be funny if we did that every night.
Then we got into the discussion of how it would be funny to put garden knomes on the lawn in stead. Or buy 100 of them, then put it all on their lawn at once.

What's your plan for Halloween?

Reading Week

Well, reading week flew by fast. Like, really fast, though i'm kinda glad to be back in Oakville. I enjoyed seeing my mom and friends, but in Oakville I can be lazy and sleep a lot.

Wednesday I was with Shelly and got all my Christmas shopping done! Well, almost all. I just need to buy a gift for my best friend, Kirsty. We also hit up the LCBO.

Thursday I went to Guelph with Brittany, where we had lunch at an Irish inspired pub. I opened my birthday gift from her, which was a cute joke book and New Moon.
I then broke the credit card machine, and we got the heck out of there. After wards we went to Chapters and sat on the floor looking through art and photography books. Brittany ended up skipping her class so we could look through books longer.

After that we went to Christie and Colleens place at residence. We chilled for a bit, went to the grocery store, bought stuff and headed back. The three of us headed out to Casey's soon after. The dinner was excellent, and I had ordered myself a... nevermind, I can't remember.
It was fruity though.
When we got back to res, I had a few beers, Christie drank with me, but it was pretty uneventful. The tv was a good distraction to everyone but whatever, I got to have a nice visit.

Friday my best friend Kirsty came over to live with me for the next few days. I made messed peanut butter cookies that turned out more awesome the next day. I also hit up the LCBO where I bought 1.75 L of awesome. That's it up there, and there I am in my not so awesome pj's.
I want new glasses.

Friday night was a chill night, rented some movies (Doomsday, and the Other Boelyn Girl?), and went to bed kinda early. Saturday was chill too, until Lola and Lauryn came over. We ordered pizza (delivery guy was kind of a douche) and started the drinking! Hit up the Newf and ordered drinks there too. After we head back I decided I had enough and stuck to water, soon after we all headed for bed. It was a bit of an early night, but we also had started early too. (Me on the right)

Suuuunday morning was a bit of an early morning. Well, too early for me. 9:20 is too early.
However, having Lola and Kirsty sleep over, I thought I should get up. Especially since Kirsty was awake.
I was getting hungry too so that's a good motivator.
We had breakfast and it was kind of a pack up and go day. Kirsty and Lola left, mom picked me up n' I talked to Mike on the phone. And here I am reeeeally needing the bathroom so i'm wrapping this up.
Night folks.

Already my mind is in over drive thinking about Christmas. It's because i'm stuck in Oakville all of November, so if I can figure out some stuff now, it'll be less running around by Christmas.
I wanted to get Mike a Rammstein, Volkerball zippo, but it's 45.00 EUR, then another 25 for shipping. As much as I know he would love that, I really can't afford spending basically $110.00 CAN for something so small. Maybe someday I can afford to spend money on small things like that, but this year people will have to deal with gift cards and small gifts.

Tomorrow i'm going to be with my friend Shelly, she's going to have to put up with being dragged downtown, then up to the mall and back. I don't think she minds that much though.

How about you guys? Needing to stress over gifts or anything?


So this was a project I did over a week ago. Basically you were to draw an interesting composition that involved architecture, and using india ink or a tech pen, you were to shade it in. I chose a photo that I had taken during one of our factory adventures, though I had to take Mike and the grass out. The requirements was no 'organics' were allowed.

So the steps:
- Draw rough copy on bond paper
- Tape on a piece of tracing paper (Linear)
- Trace rough copy
- Flip over tracing paper, scribble pencil across the back
- Tap tracing paper to illustration board, redraw over traced lines
- Ink illustration board

From start to finish: 9 1/2 hours
I chose to ink my project in such a way that it was sorta grungy, and messy.
I did this because I wanted it to represent industry.


During our Thanksgiving break, we also had Monday off
so Mike and I grabbed my moms camera, and set off to the graveyard.

It's been awhile

So I guess I should try and sum up my two weeks.
Here we go!

Thanksgiving was awesome.
Saturday morning I went to a local breakfast place where I got to catch up with some of my friends. After wards, I picked up Mike from Zehrs and did a few things while I was there. We had dinner with my mom that evening. It was nice to see her and be able to spend some time with her.

Sunday I picked up Mike from work again as his mom was busy cooking at home. When we arrived to his place, his family was already there and waiting for us. Mike got ready upstairs which gave me some time to catch up with his family. There was lots and lots of food, which when you're a student, family meals like this is a god send.

Now fast forward >>

Birthday. I didn't do anything on the actual day, but a lot of people called me. I was sick of the phone, though it was nice to hear from people. Mike won the birthday race and called me in the morning, then after coming back home from class, I got a call from papa, mom, mike, christie, kaillie, dad, then I had to call Christie back.
I kinda felt bad because I had been hogging the phone all night, so thankfully Christie was open to Skyping instead.

Mom was working all weekend and couldn't pick me up until the following Monday, so Mike came down. We chilled the Friday after he arrived, he had a cold and was really stressed out from trying to figure out the train/bus. Normally he comes down on a Saturday but we've started Fridays now.
He also gave me my gift! The card he got me was awesome because it said cake! But using his creative side, he drew the portal cake on the front, then drew the companion cube inside. I actually thought it was part of the card at first, until he told me he drew it. Kinda has more meaning because he drew the stuff on, I think anyway.

He got me a nice candle holder, which when I get back to Oakville, i'll take a picture of it. He also got me a Labbit. I have never seen them before, so I hope he wasn't offended when I had to take a few seconds to stare at it. Its really really cool, and comes with four different attachments that you can stick in its mouth. It's like a cuter version of Mr.Potato Head. I enjoyed the gifts, and even though i'm not allowed to have candles in my room, i'll still get a few tealights for those nights that I just need to relax.

Saturday we went to the mall and chugged double shot, Starbucks cappuccino things in the mini cans. Then we proceeded to get silly. I wanted to go to the toy section in Sears, and I ended up attacking him with Hulk plush hands. The Saturday night we went to East Side's, enjoyed some yummy food, and I ordered a raspberry, triple sec and tequila drink. It was really good!

Sunday was kind of a slow, sleepy day. It usually is because we know Sunday is the day we go our seperate ways. Though, it got more exciting at night when Mike decided he would stay until Monday, that way mom could drive him back to Hamilton.

We watched Ratatouille Sunday night because neither of us had seen it, and we're limited for movies at my place. It was actually really good! I didn't know what to expect since it never really struck me as interesting before.

Now i'm back home, tomorrow i'll probably go to the neighboring town and find possible Christmas gifts. I'm starting early folks!

My birthday is coming up! Yay!

Though as time slowly ticks by, I can't help but think about what i'm going to get people for Christmas. My dads birthday is coming up too.
Damnit people! Why do you have to be so hard to shop for?? GAWD. Actually... I just got an idea...
I can't say anything here though in case dad happens to read my blog. Can't have any oopsie slips!

New Month

So it's October, fwoot!
October means, Thanksgiving with lots of yummy food and family. It also means an awesome celebration; Halloween.
Of course, we can't forget my birthday is coming up too *grins*. I'll finally be 19, and I feel that's the last step out of young teenager-hood. I'll be able to buy my own drinks, when I go out with friends I can order a casual drink. It'll be nice to finally have this freedom!
I never asked for anything for my birthday, just money. Every single dollar will help me throughout school, and that's a gift worth more than anything to me.
Anyway I don't have much else to report lately, no big projects to show off, hahah.
Oh and here's the painting from last week that did so well.
