Today could go one of two ways:

a) blind as a bat
b) perfect vision

Yah, aus is getting his laser eye surjery. Most likely he will recover and his eyes will have perfect vision, orrrr he could be the <0.001% and end up blind. Either way we are out like 4k... urg. But I guess you have to invest to get anything out of anything. He wants to be a cop or work for Search and Rescue in the military, or fly helicopters n all that jazz. All of the above sources of employment require perfect uncorrected vision; which he certainly does not have.

His surgery isthis afternoon at 4. I haven't really researched how this surgery works. I have only seen Minority Report where Tom Cruise gets his eyeballs replaced to avoid being scanned in the retina scanners and caught by the cops and thrown in prison for a murder he didn't commit yet. (ya gotta see the movie! rlyyyy good!) So when I think of any eye surgery this is the scene that comes to mind:

I will check back and let you know how it all went.

"Stress is related to 99% of all illness"

that's a quote from Lululemon's poster. and yes, I am stressed. and yes, I have been very sick lately. the past 3 days I've had a stomach bug, then the week before I had a stuffy nose and flemmy throat (yum), then the 2 weeks before that I had a respiratory virus. UGH! So since school is stressin me out, as well as other things, I haven't been feeling 100% since reading week (a month ago). Lets hope that once my tests are done between now and Tuesday I will be better!

Yout don't know what you got...

I just got out of my organic chem lab. I had casually asked my lab partner why she was gone last week and she told me, "well my brother is in critical care in Toronto". I said I was sorry to hear that, and I didn't want to interrogate her about what happened. She later mentioned that he was in a car accident. I know she is from Sudbury, so for her brother to be taken to Torono must mean he is in pretty bad shape. I just wanted to use this to remind us all that every day we are so blessed with the wonderful things we have: health and family. I myself get caught up in the busy day-to-day grind, and I need to work on appreciating the important things, and not getting worked up about the small things that don't really matter. My lab partner struck a chord in me, and I am so grateful for how lucky I am that all my loved ones are healthy :D

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

So I know I have abandoned my blog, and I'm sorry. School is SO INSANE!!! My Statistics course takes up a lot of my time because each week we have an assignment that is worth 3%, and they take about 12 hrs. to do. Plus I have weekly physics assignments, and weekly chem lab write ups so I'm pretty much sick of school! I am officially done on the 27th of April. That is my last exam. Then I think I am going to take summer courses to catch up on my courses that did not transfer over from Guelph.
Nothing new really...
OH! the Guys and I went to see Battle LA in theatres on Tuesday and it was SOOO GOOD! There was guns and aliens and violence and blood! So ya know its gotta be good... Definately think the US marines put a lot of $$$ into it because there was a lot of talk that the marines were SO amazing and they never leave a man behind, and blah blah blah... but even still it is a good movie.

I'm not celebrating St Patty's today, well not as much as the guys. I kicked them out to go to Nicks so I can have the night to do homework and study for my 3 midterms next week. Well, I also got one of the tiny bottles of Bailey's to put in my coffee tonight. That's my celebration : Homework and coffee with Bailey's.

Anywho I had better go. I will try my hardest to make another post this weekend. Hopefully the guys will go to the island and I will have the place to myself :D HUGS!!!
