Oh a little boy taking a bubble bath :):):)
Anyways, today I went to guidance to see if I can get into world issues. There are 5 people on the waiting list. :( that's a lot of people. I guess I'd have to take night school or something for that course. It seems like a really easy course. It's practically a course of things I actually care about. Imagine how good it'd be to write essays about things I do care about. (a). After my shower, sorry, bath, I am going to check what courses are offered in virtual school. I'm going to try to get Chris to retake it with me. Hohoho.
Recently I've been quiet. Quietly observing. My surroundings, my friends everything. I've realised many things. Negative more than positive.I guess the while university thing has gotten me a tad bit pessimistic; however, my 3 "favouritest" friends are still my favouritest friends :) which reminds me, WELCOME BACK DAPHNE :) (soon or maybe you are back but you are jet lagging to reply my text).
So I am still in my bath tub. So I was trying to find bubble bath soap or whatever it's called so I can "relax" here but I've failed miserably. So I began to look through my ridiculously large amount of soaps stashed in a drawer and I came across a "shower & bath gel" so you know me, I hopped to my computer and did some research on how to use this "shower & bath gel" welp it definitely works as a bubble bath soap but I must say I did underestimate this soap. I think I might have added a bit too much soap. But the amount of bubbles sure cover up for the fact that I haven't taken a bath in about 5 years. I don't understand why I stopped for so long. I mean look at all the cool things I can do while I sit here. Things like watch YouTube videos and finally updating my blog. Heck, I can even go on msn if I really wanted to. My mom used to complain at how much water I was wasting taking baths but since we've changed the shower head and this shower head is the most environmentally unfriendly thing ever I guess it seems fair that I bathe today and more often. If i showered I'd be spending a good 45 minutes with the shower head running non-stop versus taking a bath were iI leave it running for 15 minutes at most. 30 minutes of water wasting gone seems awesome. It's so relaxing. Originally, I had planned to come home, set up my cool new printer and do my homework that is easy and print it and then take a bath with candle light and classical music...
Here's what really happened. So I forgot my candles and lighter and had to run out to get them because I thought they were essential.
Okay so I am back with the candles and lighter. I light them and lay them on the sides of my bath tub and then turn the lights off... HUGE MISTAKE.
I DID NOT KNOW THAT I WAS AFRAID OF THE WASHROOM WITH LITTLE - NO LIGHTS. ALL I THOUGHT ABOUT WAS "OH AFTER MY AWESOME BATH ID SEE A BROKEN BLOODY MIRROR WITH BLOODY MARY AND STUFF" so what do I do?
I got back up turned on the lights blew the candles out and just took a regular bath.
My face is sweating. The water I am using mustve been über hot. Feels so good :)
Oh so since it is the new years I guess I will make resolutions.
1. Get at least 75% in advanced functions (the second time).
2. Raise my international busiess mark up to 80% at least.
3. English mark up to 82% at least
4. At least 65% in calculas (I'm not even going to bother to aim for an unachievable goal
5. Get at least 85% in Writers Craft shouldn't be hard. Miss. Clarke loves ly short stories. :)
6. As much as I'd hate to admit this but I really do want to get into Waterloo... I hope I make it. But judgeing by the marks that I am for it doesn't seem very likely huh? :(
1. Definitely lose weight.
2. Drink more water
3. Exercise more even if it is just walking
4. Eat more fruits as vegetables (raw)
1. Get my G2
2. Shop less
3. Stop procrastinating (now that I've realised that I have been stress free for too long, this shouldn't be hard if I really do want to get into Waterloo)
4. Learn to cook
I wanted to tackle 15 resolutions but I guess my mind is empty. 14 will do... for now.
Welp, time to wash up. I can feel my toes pruning up. :)

On Thursday, there was a little University fair thing... my friends and I are pretty bummed out at the fact that the cut-off marks have gotten so high. I've never had such low business marks before, my initial goal was to take business because it was easy. My mark boosters became a mark killer...
I've been having second thoughts about business... I think arts are more me? :/
Anyways, today I went to the grocery store with my mom and I think I've seen the saddest thing ever... you know those shopping carts "buggies" as some call it? People don't necessary return it to the main place where these carts/buggies are stored. There are people who are hired to gather them and put them back. Anyways, usually, those people are given some kind of machine that helps them push the carts so not a lot of their energy and effort is used to get the carts to move. Given that it is quite a dangerous job with all the cars moving and such plus the cold weather in Canada I think that those cart-pusher things are a must for this job; however, what I saw today was absolutely disgusting... I could not believe what the super market puts their employees through... today, what I saw was a man; a man who worked for the super market, he wasn't young, I'd assume he was around his late 40's... this man had 'ought to be the hardest working person I have ever seen. He was small yet he had to use all his might to pull and tug on about 20 of these carts/buggies (which is extremely hard) because he wasn't given a cart-pusher thing... How the hell is that even ethical I mean I know for a fact that this supermarket did not pay their employees the minimum wage and even if they did people should not have to use that much effort/strength into working to earn less than $9 an hour. I stood there watching this man pull and tug on these carts and almost cried... I mean imagine your father going to work outside in the dark cold weather of Canada and having to use all that effort just to provide food and a warm decent shelter for you.. that is heart breaking. If that was my father I'd honestly rather starve than to see him go through all that pain and struggles. I wish there was some way I can help him so that his job is easier.
I don't understand why people always refer to Africa when talking about starving people or poverty... It's quite obvious that you don't have to go that far to see someone in poverty. Within kilometres you're bound to find someone in poverty in Toronto. Starving people, homeless people, and people like that man I saw. It's a shame that we are not doing anything to try to help these people and I know I'm not doing anything by just blogging about it but certainly people can start to care and get informed about these people.
I just wish there was some way I could help...
Anyways... toodles :/
