So, dear readers, I have a challenge for all of you. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, will enhance my guide dog adventure emmensely. So here goes. Tell me two of your favourite songs ever. I don't care how random or weird they might be. Just tell them to me. My plan is to make a cd of two of everyone's favoure songs so that when I'm away I will have songs that make me think of you. You kids have four days. Go forth Angels!

Positive things:

  • I'm talking to old friends again!
  • I'm feeling really confident about going to gdb
  • I'm listening to Bad Religion and it's nifty!
  • It's fantastic and gorgeous outside
  • Jay's coming over tomorrow to help me pack for the big move.
  • I can walk to the cannal now! Go me!

Shor Curtains got... no reason...

To whoever created this shower curtain,

I appreciate that you have tried to keep my shower water inside the tub. However, you are not doing a very good job. Youhave made this curtain about six inches too short, and I thought that when shower curtains were made, they were supposed to have two layers. Where was I when someone decided that one layer would work just fine? If I'd have been there, I would have had a wordwith whoever you people are,and I would have told you this. If you are going to make a shower curtain, it should not be as thin as paper unless it has two layers. Let me explain my frustration, makers of Mr. Shower Curtain.

My room mate moved out a few weeks bafck, and she took her shower curtain with her. So I needed a new curtain. My dad bought me one the next day. This was all fine and good, except that we forgot to get those rings that hold up the shower curtain. So finally, on Friday when I was with some friends, they had extra shower curtain rings. I came home on Sunday and had help putting these things up. Well, my friend said the curtain was short, but it should be fine. Boy was my friend ever wrong. I was so excited to have an actual shower on Monday morning. I hopped in, pulled the curtain into the tub, made sure it was inside and fired up my uber jet-propelled shower. Aaaaah, I thought. How I love the wonderful massage this shower administeres to me. Fuck a massage therapist, this shower works perfectly. That is until I step out of the shower. The feeling that greets me is as if I've stepped into a pool. Fantastic. Because the shower curtain sucks, the water flew out and flooded my floor. No huge deal I think. I just have to clean up the floor and it's al good.

Skip ahead about twelve hours. It's now late at night. I went to pee, and grabbed my toilet paper from the back of the toilet, and what do you know, the paper is soggy and discintegrating. Great. Thanks shower curtain. Not only did you let water flow out of the tub and get all over my floor, but you ruined my toilet paper too. Way to be useful.

Let downs and Cheer Ups

I must really be sheltered from the big bad world. Everyone tells me that it's harder to get a job if you're disabled, so you'd think that applying for a job with hpeople who work with disabled people would work out. Nope. Two different employers who aparently really wanted me didn't take me. They don't know what they're missing. So I'm back to square one on the job scene. Isn't this typical. Ah well whatever.

In happier news, Jay, Ted, Marc, karine and I went out to see Spidy 3. It wasn't so good. I missed the brilliant descriptions that Meg gives me when we see movies together. But whatever. It was fun to see everyone again. Jay surprised me with a visit on Friday night. It was sooo cute.

Twenty days till I have my very own barking four legged guide doggie! OK,technically it's 24 but I'm in California in 20 so that will be awesome!! This year seems to be the year of guide dog getting. Jessica just did her home interview yesterday and is recommended for the July class. Jessie might be in the same class, we all know that Carin and Trixy are united at last, and finally there's me. This is so cool! Oh, and we're all going to the same guide dog school!! Now I'm patiently awaiting the arrival of some Swiss Chalet cuz I'm lazy and don't feel like washing my dishes yet.

Positive things:

  • guide dogs guide dogs guide dogs!
  • I'm starting my job finding journey again and maybe I'll find something uber cool!
  • It's gorgeous outside
  • New meds may have potential!
  • Jay... always jay... he's great and he surprised me on Friday night!
  • I saw Marta the other day and it was great!
  • Oooo! I found a new radio station! Live 88.5 so finally a good station in Ottawa
  • I live by myself now!
  • Jay's friend Steve and I are hanging out more and it's lots of fun!
  • Oooooo slushies rock in the summertime. Unfortunately now I just got brain freeze. Yowy.

What happened?

So second year is over. I finished my last exam yesterday. i hate children, at least I hate the psychology of them. Arg! But the point is I'm done. I am so hapy.

I went out with Jay last night. We went and bought him groceries and then hung out and watched tv and just spend time tgether. It was really nice. I am truly greatful to be dating him. He's wonderful. This morning I had to get up early so I would make my apointment that I had. Poor Jay was so tired that we just cfame back here after and cuddled and fell asleep together for a few hours. I often forget the importance of just cuddling. It's such an important thing sometimes. I am so in love it's crazy.

In ther random news, it's sorta sad. I'm going to be alone as f tomorrow night. I know I've had my issues with the room mate, but I love her. She's my friend, and that won't change. I just hope that she will stay my friend after this. For the last couple of weeks we've been doing a lot of stuff together around here. I'm really going to miss her, and as much as I'm excited to live on my own, I'm sure I'll be lonely sometimes. I already feel a bit lonely, and she's not even gone, in fact she and her mom are both here. I am, however, hapy to report tat one of my friends from first year is my new neighbour!! So frickin' cool!

Tomorrow I have to go to the passport office and declare it lost. I'm a loser. I don't have any clue where it is, anyway... I can't believe in four weeks tomorrow, everything changes. I'll have my puppy. That's crazy to think that I've been wanting a dog since forever, and now it's finally really going to happen. I hope that I will make it. I'm sure I will. That's all for now.

Positive Happenings:

  • Jay and I spent some good time together

  • Karen and I are getting along

  • I'm going to live beside Amber and that rocks!

  • Puppy in four weeks!
