Why hello there!
Todays topics of discussion are The OC and the possibility of getting fired. Well today at work we had a meeting and an issue that came up was mystery shops. A mystery shopper is a customer that comes to your store to evaluate the service. The problem is that our store, according to the grades received, has the worst service in the country (Out of all the Toys R Us). So the managers have told us numerous times what we need to improve and we just keep on failing. So the head office boss has supposidly said that he will be comming to evaluate and if the person fails they will be fired on the spot. I am SO scared of this happening. I always try to give the best service I can, so as long as I do this I should be fine. The thing is the people at my store from what i've seen don't give bad service... so I don't really understand why we are doing so badly. I don't think anyone should be fired unless they steal or something, not asking someone if they would like to buy stale easter chocolate as an add on doesn't qualify as a reason to get the axe in my books.
Next: Did anyone see the preview for next weeks The OC? Well I did let me tell you! Who won't survive? I don't know. I heard a rumor that Marissa gets killed off from an overdose. This can very well happen. But I'm not really convinced... it's too easy. Who do you think it'll be and how?

Hey all,
hows it going? I'm ok. So it's almost done, summer is around the corner. I'm pretty excited. So far the plans are: work as much as possible, tan as much as possible and go out as much as possible. Also I want to go to toronto in July to see a concert and to visit family aaaaaaand I don't know... perhaps get myself a drivers liscence! I just hope these last 6 days of school dont kill me. I feel like I have so much left to do, yet i'm not really sure what there is to do exactly... does this make sense? Uh yeah maybe. So today I started my tanning salon escapade. I think the word 'escapade' works in that sentence.. if it doesn't don't correct me, it sounds like it works. So yeah, i'm going to try and get as dark as I can as fast as I can in 2 weeks. lol I hope my plan works.I'm so tired of being told that tanning salons are bad for you. Are you telling me that sitting outside baking my skin for 3 hours a day is better for me than a 10 minute session? Yeah thats what I tought. Driving update: I drove all the way from st.Johns to my house in Kirkland today. I couldn't help but notice my mothers hand gripping the handle on the door. I think i'm a good driver. I booked my next 5 lessons today. So as of May 26 i'll already have 7 hours done. Good stuff. My instructor yesterday was SO weird! He kept having these spasms of laughter over god knows what and then he'd start to cough and spit all over the place. Bah, he sounded like he was about to croke. I suppose it was semi entertaining... but for the most part weird. Anyone whose had Stephen from the Montreal Motor league knows what i'm talking about.
SO yeah, random: LaRonde has some new ride! They look awesome. Check it out> http://www.laronde.com/en/

Hey all,
I know you guys have read alot of blogs about the Trade Fair already but i'm going to blog about it anyways. I want to start by congratulating everyone on a job well done. I thought everyone's booth was awesome and everyone should be proud of themselves. I was pretty nervous about the whole presentation myself and was having alot of last minute doubts about my project and stuff; but as soon as we got rolling at 3 everything went pretty smooth and all my worries were forgotten. I'm so proud of our project winning 3rd place for the expert vote. It was a really unexpected win. I'm SO happy, it meant alot to me and Sam. p.s: Special thanks to Sam for being a great partner. Woop Woop. At first I really didn't know what to say to people who approached the booth. It was kind of awkward... a few times I stuttered and things came out completly wrong lol We can laugh about it now I guess. I probably laughed about it then too actually, can't remember... it's just a big blur. It was really nice having both groups there together for a change. I feel like we've never really had the chance to do anything all together or really get to know eachother, it was really nice. It was fun dressing up for school. A nice change. People really clean up nice ;) eh Sam. *wink* Big mistake numero uno was wearing those damn stilettos ALL day. I had a few flip flop breaks, but not many. I know I was being really annoying complaining about my feet.. but they hurt SO bad by 5. You don't understand. I couldn't walk by the end of it all. It was pretty sad. Oh well. That's all for now. Thanks Susan for everything! It was appreciated.

Hey everyone,
How are you all this easter sunday? Me, I am bored. It isn't fair. Are you ready for some complaining? Well my little sister went on her grad trip to New York City and Washington and my older brother went to Tonronto to visit family and friends and well I'm here cause my family neglected to tell me that they wanted to go to TO. so I got scedualed to work. No fun. I don't say this very often, but I miss my sister. Now I know how she feels when i'm out all the time and she gets stuck at home all alone. Last night the one night I can do something, my parents pull the old "we don't want you to go out" Like it actually makes a different weather i'm closed in my room or out. So I didn't have enough energy after my long day at work to put up a fight with them. *tear* I went to bed at like 9. Let the good times roll... yes you did sense a hint of sarcasm. Now we have company over and i'm being anti-social. I'm in a rotten mood, my mom yelled at me and called me a spoiled brat. I am not a spoiled brat. Take note. And on top of everything, I have 28 hrs of work next week and the trade fair is comming! I'm uber stressed out right now. We don't have everything done yet... and nothings printed. I just hope everything comes together. I know theres probably a bunch of us in the same boat. Hang in there! I'm off, easter lunch is ready. woop woop :(

Hey everyone,
How's it going? Me, i'm swell. I just got back from a little cruise with my dearest papa. I must say, my driving just keeps on improving. I passed yet another milestone on my journey. Tonight I completed my first merge! Complete with a yield! Yes sir. A "Kodak moment" indeed. I had a really good day today. It included some deep theraputic shopping. I don't care what anyone says, it does help you feel better! My problems aren't terribly deep... so a little shopping does the trick. H&M opened today! I was SO excited. I love new stores... and this one is huge, nice and pretty cheap. A+. I do realize that the stuff is going to be all over Abbott in about a week, but that didn't stop me for a second. I had to wait like a good half hour just to try my stuff on. There were so many people in there! But I recommend you check it out. They have something for everyone. It's kind of like a Simons. I also ended my quest for the perfect jean skirt. I'm rather satisfied. What else do I have to tell you.... Hmmm. I bought a ticket to go see The Strokes this week. They play a show here in May. All in the same week theres: The Strokes, Say Anything, FOB w/ Hawthorn Heights, AAR and From first to last and Our Lady Peace. If I could go to all the shows I would... but I have a deadly fear of being poor. I think i'll probably go see FOB too... I can't pass it up. Plus my sister would never let me forget what a good show I had missed. So thats all for now! Buh Bye

So the week is comming to an end again... sunday felt like it was just yesterday doesn't it? Nothing out of the ordinary happened to me... well nothing that I want to share with all of you. On monday Susan gave an inspiring lecture about trying new things and altough crawling inside of creepy abondoned homes did sound tempting I decided to choose a safer route. The week of new started on the weekend. For the first time I went driving on an actual road! My dad took me and it was alot more interesting than the parking lot from my last drive :)And no I didn't hit any cars or children. I was pleased. Earlier this week Sam and I went to Subways and instead of ordering the usual, Sam got a wrap and I got a salad.. I suppose you can call it living on the edge. It was a dandy change. And then yesterday I decided to kick it up a notch and I went to fairview and tried out shop lifting. I managed to get 3 tank tops, an underwear, a necklace and some old lady's purse.

No that last part isn't true... but the other two are, did I get you?. Anyways to top of my week of new things I found a new site! It's made by the same person who does nataliedee.com it is called http://www.marriedtothesea.com I think its funny. But if its not your thing... well I guess you dont have to laugh.

Hey all,
So tomorrow we are back in school. Not cool. This break went by so fast, I don't even feel like I had a chance to enjoy it. I had worked myself up so much about how amazing my march break was going to be that I left a big space for disapointment. I try to live by the motto: Always expect the worst and you will never be disapointed. Key word is TRY, it's hard to expect the worst when you want to get excited about something. I did have a few good days this week.. it wasn't a complete bummer. Last night I went to Traffik http://www.traffikclub.ca/ with a few friends to top off the break. It was o.k. The problem about that place is that no one really dances much... and if you want to dance chances are you'll be the only one on the floor unless it's around 1 am. And last night I think I heard maybe 2 songs that I knew :( Oh well. On a brighter note: We were driving home and one of my friends lives in St.Annes. While we were dropping her off my friend mentioned how much he would love to see a deer on the road ( since theres deer crossing signs all over the place on the way to her house ). Don't we see 3 deer on the front lawn of the first house we see! It was awesome. I felt like I just saw a unicorn or something... Well im off. I think i'm getting sick :(

Yeah I'm feeling extra bloggy today so im going for the double dose lol. I just got back from the dentist and I yet again have no cavities. I couldn't help but notice that the girl who was cleaning my teeth was a John Abbott grad. I thought that was pretty cool. We got into a conversation about mascara and curling techniques lol. It was kind of annoying cause she kept trying to ask me questions while she had all that junk in my mouth like I could actually talk back... so I just grunted and made noises. I hate when they talk to you when your in that kind of position. oh well.. no cavities I guess thats what counts, right?

Hey all,
I know alot of you already have your liscenses and stuff, but I'm somewhat of a late bloomer and I only have my permit. Ive been dying to drive a car since october but everyone always claims to be too busy to teach me. Anyways, today I finally convinced my mom to bring me to that huge empty parking lot next to the Colisée to practice my skills. I was so excited! I drove for maybe a half hour and it was so much fun. I think not being around any cars put me at ease. My mother on the other hand looked like a wreck. She kept screaming "SLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW!", when ever I went anywhere past 30. It was rather annoying. I think she thinks im a complete moron. But no I am not. Like I would have actually hit a pole in the middle of an empty parking lot. yeah ok mom. I can already tell that parking and reversing are going to be a problem. I attempted to park once and well it was just so hard. I wont even get into reversing, i'll spare you. Anyways, the fun ended sadly when I gave gave my mom a heart attack while accidently jumping a curb. I didn't think it was such a huge deal... but she freaked out. Thats all for now, i'm off to the dentist woop woop.

Hey hey,
So yesterday I had my first real class of archery. For the first time we actually got to pick up the bows and shoot at something.I remembered archery in high school being so much fun. I don't know if maybe it's because Robin Hood is like one of my top 3 favorite Disney movies of all time or something but I get really pumped up for my gym class. I had a vision of myself being like the next Robin Hood... having mad archery skills and such but yesterday my vision exploded into a million little pieces and then those pieces were put in a bag and the bag was set on fire and stomped on. I hit the target sometimes... but I would not say i'm the best in the class. Sadly I need some work. Maybe if I wear green tights and a feathered hat i'll have better luck hitting the center or splitting someone else's arrow down the center with my arrow. I dream BIG. I have a whole semester to improve and I am determined to become an archery legend lol... actually I wouldn't go that far, that's crazy talk... but I want to get really good. Anyways that's all for now, raise the roof Sam.
