I’m waiting for the sun to finally prove to me that Spring is here. I’m waiting for the mocking to begin when I confess I saw this movie last night. I’m waiting for my brother to tell me what he’s already told everyone else. I’m waiting for my feelings to stop hurting. I’m waiting for Victor and Tammy to win The Amazing Race. I’m waiting for someone to tell me I shouldn’t want them to win. I’m waiting for a job offer, a moment of clarity, this dress to go on sale.
I’m waiting for the Next …READ MORE
Oh internet, I’m in love.
With a movie.
Called “One Week“.
Those of you who aren’t Canadian (or who don’t love Joshua Jackson with all of your soul unlike this girl) may not have heard of it. It basically is a movie about a man is confronted with death and goes on a roadtrip to figure out exactly what he wants in life. That sounds cliche, doesn’t? But I assure you, this movie is unlike any I’ve ever watched. Plus, it’s fun to see how they cram Canada into every possible scene- through showcasing the beauty of the country, a …READ MORE
I know. That title is such a hook. You are dying to read this aren’t you? The word ‘meme’ always gets the people flocking.
Let me tell you a little story. There’s that “letter” meme going around (that isn’t the story, stay with me, I promise this tale gets SCINTILLATING), Beth gave Matt the letter “D”. Then, I complained to Matt that I had nothing interesting to blog about (yes, these are the things I say in gchat conversations, doesn’t it make you want to find me so we can talk RIGHT NOW?), so Matt gave ME his letter. Because …READ MORE
My top 5 Internet/viral videos of 2008 by the awesome JustRun
1) Randy Pausch’s Last Lecture (Technically it was 2007, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t think about and watch portions of this all year. I don’t think I’ll ever forget it.)
2) Barack Obama on election night (I would fill up your blog with too many words if I explained why I chose this. I was, am, and hope to continue to be motivated by a politician and President that will talk to me as if I’m intelligent enough to understand sophisticated ideas about this country …READ MORE
I did this to myself.
I’m the first to admit this.
You see, I went on a bit of a bender during the holidays. People warned me that it wasn’t healthy. That I was going to hurt myself. That I was playing with fire.
Yet, I ignored them all. And went to see someone who could help me me get a fix.
I went to Blockbuster.
And spent days watching “The Wedding Date”, “You’ve Got Mail”, “When Harry Met Sally”, ” Must Love Dogs”, “Sleepless in Seattle”, “The Notebook” and “The Bridges of Madison County” (and you know what sort …READ MORE
Things that really pissed me off in 2008 by Mr. 5280 5. George Bush. The absolute best thing he did all year was dodge two shoes that were thrown at him during a press conference. He showed cat-like reflexes to dodge the shoe thrower and this single act alone probably saved him from the number one spot.
4. Adam Sandler, “Don’t Mess With the Zohan”. I sent Adam an email after this movie, begging him to STOP IT. His brilliance in “Waterboy”,”Happy Gilmore” and “Billy Madison,” is going to be overshadowed by these mediocre cinematic flops. He used to bring …READ MORE

Everyone has them. The movie you must see, the song you must hear, the book you must read, the city you must visit. When I talk about my ‘musts’ I’m almost fanatical, my feelings are so strong on each of them. My list of ‘musts’ don’t necessarily mean they are my favorite. They are just what has stood out, became memorable and left me with something that I think others might find valuable. So, I give you a few of my ‘musts’, and hope that you will tell me a few of yours

This is my last BUSY week, school is done this Friday and then I’m sure I will be blogging 21.8 times a day out of boredom until I find a summer job that feeds my soul pays my bills. Instead of trying to cram in blog posts, I’ve been really focusing on planning great lessons for my last week. As a class we’ve been having a tremendous amount of fun, but I’m not looking forward to the last day of school. One of my favourite students- Taylor, asked me if it would be okay if he went to the bathroom …READ MORE
Let me preface this with saying this entire post is about Sex and the City. Let me also say, that there are spoilers in this. Many. So, if you haven’t seen the movie, you may want to skip this post. And if your love for the movie outweighs the love you feel towards any human, you may also want to skip this because I’m afraid you may not like me after reading this.
Because I have to say, I didn’t LOVE the movie.
Put the knives down ladies, and let me explain.
First of all, I feel it’s important for …READ MORE
