Stress Test!!

Hello! So this week I had an online test to do for one of my classes. The beauty of online tests are that there is a certain time frame in which you must start your test, but once you start you are allowed 3 hours. My professor told us in class that the test would be available on Tuesday from 4:00pm - 7:00 pm. So, using the procrastination skills I have adopted from Aus and Fred, I started at 6:40. I then got an email from my prof asking why I hadn't started yet, and I explained pretty much what I just explained to you. And this was his reply:

Hello again. Not really, it says clearly that you only have 15 minutes grace. I explained clearly in class, and it is written in the instructions of the test that its is to be taken between 4 and 7 pm. You cannot start at any time and still have 3 hours. Submit the test at once or I will submit it for you.

FREKING TERRIFYING, considering I was only 5 questions in... So I wrapped up the other 45 questions as fast as I could, not getting the opportunity to use the "open book" privilege that we were given. Turns out I got a 68%. I'm not happy at all. Those marks won't get me into med OR optometry school. Ugh!

Wow, it has been a while!

I have been SO busy, like everyone is. School is well underway and I have a new job. All is well so far. My grades are at an all-time high and I am working hard for them!

This week I am babysitting for Maria. Early mornings, hockey practices, and birthday parties!! AHHHH! I feel like I have gotten a sample of motherhood! I can reassure, this lifestyle won't be a reality for me for a while yet.

This weekend I am going to visit my Dad in Toronto. I haven't seen him since the beginning of the summer, I think... Needless to say it has been a while!

NOW I am appreciating the good!

So I have been having much better days since my Debbie-Downer day on Monday!

My two shifts at the doctor's office were a lot of fun! I did small things like faxing, filing, computer stuff, etc. But I really liked the environment, and it doesn't hurt when your mommy is there lol. I'm going to have to buy her some more chocolate because I kept sneaking chocolate out of her drawer when she wasn't looking.

What I had thought was me getting heck for not paying tuition was ACTUALLY the LU server being down!!! Apparently nobody could log on on Monday because the website was down! Gosh! But at least I am more motivated to get my tuition payed and that headache out of the way.

Austin and I were very fortunate to be given Nanny & Poppa's 1998 Dodge Ram on Monday. Austin and Tammy went to pick it up and when I saw it I was shocked! I didn't have very high expectations because that last vehicle that we got was described as a Ford Focus, and turned out to be a Ford Escort station wagon (*cough* Tammy). So I didn't set myself up for disappointment this time lol. I love the truck! It is super well kept and we really appreciate it!!!

I took my measurements yesterday for the heck of it; to see if any of these butt-busting sweat sessions are doing me any good. I lost and inch off my thighs and gained and inch on my biceps in 10 days!!! Awesome!

I also got my marks back today from an English essay I handed in last week. The essay is worth 10% ofmy final mark and I got... wait for it...98%!!! WOOHOO!!!! It's about time I started getting those good marks!!

Anywho, that is all the excitement for today. Have a great weekend everyone! HUGS

you have to have the bad to appreciate the good.

Today has been a pretty bad day, and and I feel at the point where I would appreciate ANYTHING good.

Randy's dog Angus hasn't been well the past few days, and today they put him down. poor Angus had a tumor in his neck that was putting pressure on his wind pipe, as well as the nerve that controlled his front legs.

I babysat two 19 month old twins today. there was actually nothing bad about that. They are busy little guys, but the didn't give me a hard time.

I weighed myself this morning and after doing my Insanity workouts religiously for the past 3 weeks I have GAINED 2 lbs. fml.

I got home to do a workout for the first time in 3 days and my computer is having a hard time reading the thumb drive I have them saved on. You are supposed to buy the workout DVDs but since I am MC Hammer - broke I had to pirate them off the internet. So I can't do a workout today.

Then I get upstairs to hand in my online assignment that is due tonight and I got a slap in the face from LU. Since I havent paid my tuition for the summer, because I am MC Hammer - Broke, they booted me off their server, so I can't sign into my account to hand in my assignment.

I am just beside myself right now, but I know things will feel better in the morning.

The Good Ol' coffee shop

Today is my 4th morning that I got up at 6 am. For some of you that may be normal, but for this 19 yea old that is too early! Every weekday morning the same people come in and get the same thing. One guy from town is in Every morning at 7 am and sits and talks with the other men from town until 9:30 to 10. He has at least 5 coffee every morning. Thats $10 a day! Gosh, that must add up!

My schedule is pretty full for June. I am working at the coffee shop, the doctor's office, and babysitting occasionally for Maria McLaughlan and Nelie Little.

Maria and I have been walking every evening this week. The Gore Bay Summerfest this year is having a 5k and 10k run and WE are going to DO IT!!! It is in 2 months and we are going to start jogging to get ready for it!! We are hoping that anyone seroiusly good at running will just go in the 10k run, so we can do well in the 5k. All I want is a participant ribbon because that is all I've ever gotten lol. All through school I sucked at sports, so I'm not getting my hopes up for this one!

Have a great weekend everyone! HUGS
