And the winner is...

"After Graduating Vanessa plans to ride off into the sunset with ehr knight in shining armour a top a white steed."

Also I have to write up my year book blurb, because I'm just so damn important!! but seriously folks! I have to write about my time at he AMAZING Southpointe. I mean it was no GIGANTIC GARAGE SALE!! but I'll figure something out...any suggestions??

Ladner May Days Extravaganza

Vanessa and I were trying to think of Validvictory one liners to be said about Vanessa when she walks across the stage. We were reminded of Haley Beamish's :

After marrying a lumberjack Haley plans to become a self-made millionaire and travel around the world dropping bags of gold on third world countries from a hot air balloon.

*( or something to that affect)*

So for Vanessa we came up with the following options:

After graduation Vanessa plans to invade Point Roberts and start her own small country.

Vanessa plans to make the world a better place, one midget at a time.

*( take that one how you want!)*
- That one got us talking about the Cambodian Midgets that were killed by the lion......ewww!

After high school Vanessa plans to go to a finishing school in Vermont where she will learn useful skills that will become quite useful once she marries a millionaire.

There were others too but I don't remember them because I'm very dead right not actully but I did get a little bit of heat stroke from the sun today...I went to May Days and got a really really bad burn!! Oh well, live and learn...yeah right...I do this every year!


Jayson Wood is in Ladner. He's a really cool guy, and a good friend. I haven't seen him in a really long time, and the last time I did see him, it was qutie a big family there wasn't much time for catching up etc... but I saw him today, and hung out with him for quite a bit and talked...and it was good. I'm gonna be hanging out with him more...I want too!
A problem is though that he's going to be heading up country for the summer the day after my graduation, and getting back JUST in time to see me off at the airport.

Same with Alex...he got a training course for the summer in Alberta. He's going to learn how to drive stuff for the army...its a really good job! I can't remember when he leaves...but he gets back on like September 2nd...and I'm leaving on the 5th!! It's mom and I are going to be alone the whole summer!!Just us two!

Should be fun though!

No title to commit to today...

So I found just exactly where I'm going for my GAP year, and to tell the truth, I'm on the fence. I mean I accepted and all but I'm not sure about the location and type of location? I'm 14 miles from Oxford, and 4 miles from Whitney. I'm in a SMALL village called Standlake. It has the school, a shop, a post office ( which is probably a counter in the shop) and a few pubs! Oh well, that is England for you, more pubs than anything else! it should be okay, but for now I really should be concentrating on studying for my exams instaed of thinking about next year. I have to make it to next year first!

Today has been a very non-commital day, I wish everyday could be like that. I can not be tied down to any one thing for too long! I go crazy! I'll go full out for one thing and then get bored and move on. It's been like with school before. I'll go all out for it for a while, and then I'll get bored and move onto something else and not concentrate on it for a while . It's the same way with relationships. I'll be like one person's best friend for a few weeks, and be practically ignoring the other people the whole time. Then I'll have my fill of the one person and want to move on....put another way, GET THE HELL AWAY FROM THEM!!!...The only problem is with people thats a little more difficult, people tend to be more clingy! Most peopel aren't like me. They are okay with everyone all the time, but no-one seems to go to the extreme as me. I mean you'd get sick of someone as fast as I do too if you did the same as I do!!I mean I have a few friends who I could deal with all the time. There's Vanessa, Helen and Erica...yeah just 3 ( that's what a few is! ) but other then them, some people drive me crazy!!
I can not be committed, it's not in my nature!

My CRAZY weekend!

You know, writing about the word of the day has been good, it has me writing a blog everyday, and sometimes I can add to it and it leads somewhere else!

Well I'm going to assume you can't just click on the link and find it for yourself, and write todays out:

Word of the Day for Friday May 6, 2005
frisson \free-SOHN\, noun:
A moment of intense excitement; a shudder; an emotional thrill.

Well today's is quite an interesting one. I imagine you could get this feeling from any number of events.

Your just about to jump off a cliff and you would experience a frission right before you jumping.

Your true love has been gone for years, and no matter what emotion you expereince it would cirtainly be intense, and I'm sure you would be excited!!

Well this is going to an exciting weekend for me...Today, friday, I have to wash my hair and straiten it out, then we (my mom and I) are heading over the Byrnes to fit them for flaminco skirts!! Very exciting. After we measure them we're heading over to my school to drop off some jellybean "bombs" to be sold at the spring fair. Once we finally finish all of our tasks here in Tsawwassen we're heading out to Vancouver so I can get my British passport, and I think that is the most exciting part of my day!! Oh no wait no, I must correct myself..the MOST exciting part of my day today will definaltly be going to see "Guys and Dolls" at SDSS!! I will be seeing Vanessa and Erica and everyone else in it!!YEA!!!

Well after that busy day, you'd think I would be able to rest on Saturday and Sunday...but no such luck!!! On saturday, the same day as the school spring fair I have to be out at UBC at 9:00 in the morning for a whole day meeting about my 'GAP year' next year. After the meeting which ends at 6:00, my parents would have already left at 2:00 and then I have to drive from UBC to Marpole for a "Dancing through the Decades Dance" presented by Lasdowne Chapter and Bethel #9. I'm going for a 50's look. I'm going to be wearing my grandmas dress from the 50's and my hair's going to be in a french roll. My nails are going to be red, and my lips too! I'm going to darken the mole on my face. I'm told is in just the right spot so I may as well take advantage of it!

I should be getting home from that dance at about 1:00 in the morning (that's why I started a next paragraph, for Sunday, technically it would be Sunday!) and I would pray to God that I could sleep, but NEVER!! I have to be at Richmnd Centre at 9:00 in the morning to start my first day of work at Jacob. My shift is from 9:00am to 1:00pm and then when I fianlly get home..I get to do homework!!!

That is my amazing, really fucking busy, weekend!


I think I want one of these!

Word of the Day for Thursday May 5, 2005

claque \KLACK\, noun:

1. A group hired to applaud at a performance.
2. A group of fawning admirers.

The second one though, not ones I would have to hire!

Have you ever traduced?

Word of the Day for Wednesday May 4, 2005
traduce \truh-DOOS; -DYOOS\,transitive verb:
To expose to contempt or shame by means of false statements or misrepresentation; to represent as blamable; to vilify.

I think all of us can be accused of this at some time or another.

I also discovered this as interesting:

whore (hôr, hr)n.
1) A prostitute.
2)A person considered sexually promiscuous.
3)A person considered as having compromised principles for personal gain.

It doesn't say:

A person considered as having compromised principles for personal gain in a sexual manner.

It just says:

A person considered as having compromised principles for personal gain.

I found it interesting that a term we so commonly use to refer to a person who is sexually promiscuous can also be used for someone who it just a sucsessful but mean person.

Something to note though...a person could be a whore twice over...they could be a sexually promiscuous postitute, a prostitute who comprimises her principals for personal gain ( but I think they all do...unless they like fucking around and wouldn't mind screwing complete strangers (probably with diseases) for free!), or a person who is sexually promiscuous (like a paticular country) and also comprimising their princpals for personal gain of any type!

Anyway I'll leave you with this...the word of the day from my last birthday, please feel free to check out your own on - Word of the day---On the sidebar>>>

braggadocio \brag-uh-DOH-see-oh; -shee-oh; -shoh\, noun:
1. A braggart.
2. Empty boasting.

Me? Never!
I'll leave you with this today...a list poem:

Small of back

labile \LAY-byl\ adjective:
1. Open to change; apt or likely to change; adaptable.
2. Constantly or readily undergoing chemical, physical, or biological change or breakdown; unstable.

I really do like Even if I don't manage to find a situation everyday to use each word, it's still good to know I soppose. I do use the words sometimes in kindergarden and of course that makes me feel smart, but at the cost of feeling stupidly childish too...oh well it's fun anyway! Speaking of working with the kids, today I got to be in the pictures with the little kids, in their class pictures, and I got to be in the big school picture with them too! Wow do I ever look tall next to them!! Also, I got the e-mail from the GAP placement lady in England and she did find me a placement in England and I am uncirtain as to whether I want to accept the placement or not??

Here's the write-up on the school:

The Mulberry Bush is a therapeutic school providing care and education for boys and girls, aged 5 to 12, for 40 weeks of the year. The school aims to provide a balance between therapeutic work and school work. The children who attend the Mulberry Bush School are those with severe emotional damage due to the accumulation of adverse experiences in infancy and early childhood. Although these children are of average or above average intelligence, their experiences have left them with a high degree of distress, bewilderment, lack of trust, hope and without an adequate foundation on which to build a sense of self-worth. Many of our children have had difficulty in mainstream schools, and we see education as central in our work. Children are considered for placement at the School at the request of local authorities responsible for their education and welfare. In partnership with the family and with an actively involved referring authority, the School aims to equip each child with the personal, emotional, social and learning skills to cope in a family and in a local school and community.

To say the least it sounds a little extreme! However, my dads friend who has his degree in Psycology did make the good point that if I went there it would be an amazing experence, and would most cirtainly help me along my way to becoming a child psycologist. He also made the point that if I took notes on the different children when I was there (in the form of case note studies), I would then have at my disposal information on cases I was directly involved in. He said that I would probably have enough information for about 10 paper's in University. Also, the fact that the information would be self-collected makes it all the more impressive!

I think I am going to accept the placement, I just need to clear a few things up though. The town it's in sound amazing though:

Witney in Oxfordshire, world famous for its blankets, is a thriving market town with over 22,000 residents making it the largest town in West Oxfordshire. The town of Witney dates back to AD969, though there is some evidence of Iron Age and Roman settlements in the area. Witney offers all of the facilities you would expect to find in a town of its size. A varied shopping experience, Sainsburys out of town supermarket, pubs and restaurants, leisure facilities like Pirate Fitness, the Witney Lakes resort and the Windrush Leisure Centre, hotels like the Witney Four Pillars Hotel, a college (Abingdon and Witney College) even a Witney car auction. The town is expanding through ongoing property developement, notably the Madley Park development.

No matter where I end up I'll be happy just going there! Except for maybe the North...I don't know anyone up there, and I know one peson from there. She's alright, but she did leave...? Think aobut it! I'd still prefer not to go there!

Well I will leave you with this...
Here I stand
With pupose
With no where to go...
Here I stand
With limits at my doorstep, and purposelessness overwhelming
With somewhere to go...
Here I stand
On the fence, my balance uncirtain.
