An Update, F'real

I haven't been here in a while. A lot of things had actually occurred during my hiatus. Things that I may or may not cover here. Why? Because I'm lazy. That, or I’ve forgotten the actual events.

Anyway, here's to documenting whatever it is I remember.

So after school ended, I scored three weeks off of complete nothingness, two of which I wasted in front of a computer...which, then, resulted in some serious damage to my bank account (I will get to this later). The last week of my break, however, was a lot more exciting. A. WHOLE. LOT. MORE.

Rule of thumb: Do not put Denise in front of a computer with nothing else to do for more than a week, otherwise, she’ll start to spend “moniez she ain't got”, and buy things “she don’t want!”

Ok, so this is what I did: I bought a bag. A 300 dollar bag! Which ended up costing $418 because stupid customs decided to open my package, concluded that I was ballin’ and charged me an extra $118! @#$%^&SHDKJ! You're probably wondering, "why in the world would Denise buy such an expensive bag?" Well, L'oreal said it best, "because I'm worth it."

Actually, after that purchase, I'm pretty sure I'm completely worthless now. I know.

I bought the bag because I wanted to treat myself. After four years of undergrad studies, and a total of 17 years of schooling, I felt that a fancy gift was more than necessary. Well, it was necessary up to the point where customs decided that it was an ethical move to bust a cap in my arse.

So note to self: Don’t spend that much money on eBay.

Note to customs: I'M ACTUALLY POOR!

Note to people around me: Do not put Denise in front of a computer with nothing else to do for more than a week, otherwise, she’ll start to spend “moniez she ain't got”, and buy things “she don’t want!”

I spent my last week of absolute freedom in NYC! What better way, really? M was generous enough to let us stay at her Brooklyn pad for four nights, and be our tour guide for three days, while being completely awesome and wikkid cool about everything! Thanks dude!

In a nutshell, my trip was beyond awesome! I loved every single second of it. It was a trip so well worth every penny I spent on it (which was not a lot by the way). I think I spent a total of just over 300 bucks on my trip (this includes my ticket, food and gifts/souvenirs). I know!!!

One of the moments that really made my trip was this.

At this very moment, I am typing this blog entry cause I have nothing else to do and I want to look busy. Other than that it’s been pretty good. The people here are nice and although we’re not that busy yet, people do find the time to train me on things and I feel like this method of training, although unconventional, is working for me. I’m able to soak everything that comes my way, which is always a good thing.

I met up with T and T a couple of Saturdays ago to participate in Toronto's DOTO event. It was wikkid, except I had to go home early because I had to deal with the evil group known as "customs" to get my bag.

So I met up with A, A, T and T (yeah, those letters mean nothing to strangers) last Friday night and we had a jolly good time at Duke of Devon! The weather was perfect! T suggested that we have our dinner in a patio setting (good call). We were able to score a table after the “happy hour gang” started to dissolve...

It was awesome to see people, eat good food and enjoy the weather! It was perfection. I think if Monet was alive today, he'd paint us...ahaha.

Ok that's it for now. Next time, I promise, it'll be shorter.

Summer 2008

The last four months flew by so fast...I didn't even post anything here. I feel really guilty for sorta abandoning this blog. It's already September. That's insane in the membrane. Too crazy.

Anyway, I have been incredibly busy and I wish I had more time off. Work and summer school got the best of me, but also brought the worst of me out. A dosage of Back to the Future would have been would certainly reassure me of my sanity. I don't even have time to have such marathon. Don't worry Michael J. Fox, I will have time for you.

In spite of the "hecticness", I have to say, this summer has got to be the best summer...ever. Why? Well, I'll tell you why:
  • Got to see Radiohead live! OMGOMGOMG.
  • The annual church retreat to Minden, Ontario was a great success
  • Went horseback riding...finally!
  • Donated my hair to Angel Hair Foundation
  • Got a new camera (just a point and shoot, I'll get my DSLR later...I hope)
  • I was able to hang out and see a lot of my old buddies
  • eBay, eBay, eBay
  • Although work was pretty draining, it was a lovely experience nevertheless
If that's not an accomplished looking list, then I don't know what is. I will post lots of pictures later, and perhaps some short clips from the Radiohead concert.

Also, this's like the epitome of "old skul"! Definitely needs some work here.

Work Starts

Aileen, Me and Rick Mercer, originally uploaded by Crabalocker.

Summary of my last day of school:

I wrote my last exam on Thursday. Right after that, my friends and I headed to Pickle Barrel (gah,horrible food) to celebrate the end of 3rd year and to also celebrate T's upcoming birthday. Lotsa, lotsa fun. Then my friends and I decided to do some window shopping at Urban Outfitters, browsing is the only thing we could afford at the moment. Well, the only thing I could afford at the moment at least.

We parted ways and made sure to keep in touch this summer. It's going to be hard, but it's going to happen.

Summary of Friday night:

I was asked by Fuji if I would like to help out on an event being held at Komori. I gladly said yes...and...

I met Rick Mercer! I was also his personal assistant for at least 30 minutes...He didn't ask me for anything. I don't think he knew that I was there to "serve" him.

But I met him and got a picture with him!!!
