Good morning

It is currently ... 4:12 AM and I just got home from WalMart. I finally crossed off the last person on my Christmas list which I checked twice ... but I just know the first thing I think of in the morning is one more person that I missed, and I will have to go out in the horrifying Christmas Eve last-minute rush traffic to find them something they would like out of the few things that are leftover in the stores. Let's hope that doesn't happen ...

I have made some New Year's Resolutions already as well. Maybe they'll give some other people ideas if they haven't thought of any already.

1) I will keep my room clean. (my resolution from last year, which was a TOTAL fail)
2) I will go to the gym at least every other day, to tone up.
3) I will eat healthier. Too much junk means very pimpley face for someone like me :/
4) Quit smoking. (I don't smoke, but maybe someone who does will read this and get the idea. Smoking is a terrible habit, it shortens your life and makes you look old, and your teeth get disgusting! Not to mention the constant lingering smell!!)
5) MAKE A BLOG POST EVERY DAY! I want to start cracking down in the new year. I really started to go downhill in November, and I need to get back on it again. Keeping a journal has actually benefited me in a couple ways, it helps me remember certain anniversaries, keep track of my thoughts, remember ideas, etc. So, even if I have nothing to talk about in my blog for the day, I WILL MAKE SOMETHING TO TALK ABOUT. I'm a hairstylist, I can always find SOMETHING to talk about.

Have a very merry Christmas everyone, and a GORGEOUS new year! Good luck on all your resolutions, and be safe, drive sober and carefully!

Waiting for work to start....

Not my usual work though. I'm going to be doing a Christmas craft show thinger ... Here's how the story goes.

A couple years ago my friend's mom was working a booth at the Christmas show, and there was another lady there from out of town who didn't have anyone to help her run her booth (she usually picks up employees when she comes into town). So she asked my friend's mom if she knew anyone who could help her run her booth, and she reccomended me and my friend! So now I have been helping her run all her booths at the craft show each year. Last year, I made $1 500 selling Slap Chops (I got lucky, I just had to sit back and they basically sold themselves. And I'm glad I probably won't be selling them this year, because on the last day of the show I had people coming back and complaining that the Slap Chops they bought from me didn't work, and I don't want to be seen selling them again this year because by now, EVERYONE will know that they are ... pretty much bullshit.)

I'm not sure what I'll be selling yet this year ... but my goal is to make $700-$1 000 doing it (I missed the first day because of school, so there goes at least $500 :/) But $700 in two days would NOT BE SHABBY. So hopefully I can do well again!

Also, my week at school was pretty nuts. On Tuesday, Teena closed the school for the afternoon because everyone was sick (except for me and Amanda, we managed to avoid the cold going around). Then on Wednesday, the pipes were frozen and if we don't have the sinks, we can't do hair! So we had to close it again. As a result, I managed a very productive Thursday.

As for my hair situation ... growing it out will be a very slow process. But I'm figuring out ways to style it, and do my make-up to bring back my old electronic/goth look. I still miss my long hair :( Pretty much the only good thing about the haircut is now it's nice and healthy, rather than how fried it is. The plan is to keep trimming it and bleaching my roots regularly, then it should stay nice and healthy and grow nice and quick (hopefully!)

It's been a looong time.

And quite a bit has changed. The biggest thing, my hair.

Yep, it's short. And yes, I pretty much hate it. You see, a couple Wednesdays ago we were just hanging out and everyone was like, "Blythe, cut your hair. It's way over-processed and has a few chemical cuts anyway, you may as well cut it off." So we looked through a magazine and found a picture that would look really cute on me, and it did look really cute on me. But I hated it anyway. And the way they styled it ... they curled it under so it was like a big circle. I couldn't handle it. I knew it looked cute and my hair was so much healthier, but I hated it anyway. It pretty much changes my whole look, having short hair, and I don't like it that much. Obviously, I'm not going to be mad about it though. I have no choice but to put up with it anyway and I'm cool with that. Anyway, I put up with the circle head for a week, because since I've never had hair cut above my shoulders, I had no idea how else to style it. Then last Wednesday, Amber had the idea that we should put red and black in my hair. Which is odd, because I know she hates colour in my hair ... but maybe she understood that I hated my hair because they created it to look nothing like the rest of my taste and wanted to fix it for me. So that was nice of her :) I like it much better now but still hate it compared to my long hair. I don't regret cutting it at all though, because short hair was always something I've wanted to try and I'm definitely glad that I gave it a chance. But I most likely will not do it again.

Now I want you to take a close look at that picture. Can you tell what is around my neck? I took that picture right after seeing the midnight premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1, which was AMAZING by the way and I was extremely happy to go with all the other Harry Potter nerds who have been following the books closely like I have since I was 9 years old and waiting for my acceptance letter into Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. I liked that I went with them for two reasons: 1) I could talk openly about the events of the seventh in the series without having to worry about spoiling anything for the ignorant people who haven't read the books and 2) These people actually wanted to WATCH the film, rather than people for instance in Paranormal Activity 2, where they just go to make fun of the film and are noisy distractions throughout the whole thing ... DRIVE ME NUTS. I definitely reccomend each and every person in the world to watch this film. AFTER reading the books if you haven't. I don't know if many of my blog followers know what a Harry Potter freak I am ... well, now you do.

Around my neck (because I understand it may be a little hard to see) is the Sorting Hat, a Snitch, and the Slytherin House Crest.

Yes, two of them. And the hoops are GINORMOUS so it looks a little silly right now. Once I change them (hopefully on Monday or Tuesday) they will look super cute!

The bird in the chimney

That is to say, birdS.

So I woke up this morning with a fever and therefore was forced to call in sick to work (oh how unfortunate.....) So I went back to bed and was sleeping for a while, then suddenly I heard screaming upstairs. At first it sounded angry, so I thought maybe my mom and sister were getting into a little match, then it turned into scared screams and I thought maybe someone was hurt, then it turned into laughing loudly. Then, quiet. Then, angry screams to scared screams to laughing. Then, quiet again. So I really couldn't figure out what was going on so I decided to pull my achey body out of bed and go upstairs. Mom and Emilee were in the kitchen saying stuff like "Call dad," "What do we do?" etc. And I'm all in my feverish state like, "wut" and they were like "There's birds in the chimney."

And this is where I will switch to their side of the story, as this is now where are stories merge. So I guess our cat Petunia was staring very intensely into the fireplace and they wondered why she was doing that. She would not take her eyes off and they figured maybe she was just looking at her reflection. But she wouldn't move and they couldn't figure out what she was doing so they tried opening the door, and Petunia went inside and batted something around and came out with a mostly dead bird in her mouth, which I must have been disgusting because there were some pretty crazy screams when they discovered it was still living. It wasn't living for long though, because by the time I got up the stairs it was defintely very dead indeed.

So we took the dead bird outside and tossed it in the bushes and then realized there was scratching in the fireplace still. And it was discovered that apart from the dead bird, there was another bird, this one very very much alive. So we got a box and attempted to catch it and failed very miserably, so we just ended up opening all the windows and waited for it to finally fly out of one, which it did. THE END.

Okay, time to tell you about my crazy Halloween.

And by Halloween, I actually mean Saturday the 30th, but that's when I did all my Halloweening. So ... it started with me getting dressed in my zombie gear because I didn't want men to bug me and wanted to be as ugly as possible (it didn't work as planned, unfortunately). Cassie came over dressed as a cute pirate and we had a couple drinks and took some shots then we got picked up by our double D and went to Tanawgis's appartment so that Tanawgis and Sarah could get in their costumes, and we had a couple more drinks, including our double D who was definitely now too drunk to drive. So we got a cab and went out to the big Halloween .... "Fright Night?" I think that's what it was called. Cassie and I made a beeline to the dance floor, of course. And for some reason, Dynamite by Taio Cruz is ALWAYS playing whenever I first walk into a bar/club/party, whatever. ALWAYS that song. So it was no different on Saturday night. I figured that the fact that I was in my ugly poor dead girl garb and the fact that flail more than I dance would keep men off of me, but for some reason there was five or six guys all dressed in identical sailor costumes all were trying to dance with me. It felt like a gang bang so I kind of danced away and more towards Cassie and the others, and I was thinking all night, WHAT'S WITH ALL THESE SAILORS?? It tripped me out. Well, one of those sailors didn't really get the hint when I tried to get away from them, and he wanted to dance with me anyway. So I'm like, what the hell, I can probably get a few free drinks out of this (a friend of mine was bartending and I can trust her not to mix anything "extra" in there). So we danced for a while, and it's weird ... I remember sending Alex one text that said "A sailor just kissed me. I didn't mean for that to happen and I didn't kiss back and I'm sorry." but I definitely don't remember ever getting kissed. Also I apparently sent him more than just that text, I sent him like, five texts apologizing profusely. I didn't feel that drunk, but I guess if I'm forgetting stuff I must have been pretty far gone. Moving on...

So he bought me a rum and coke and we immediately returned to the dance floor (and yes, I did tell him at the beginning that I had a boyfriend and he seemed to think that was alright with him and he just wanted to dance too. Probably not truthful on his part but he didn't seem to be trying anything too funny so I just danced anyway). Once on the dance floor I held my rum and coke over my head so it wouldn't get bumped by anyone and sloshed all over me and I would bring it down and take a sip then put it back up. I did that a couple times, then, I don't know, the fifth or sixth sip I took, I brought it down and it was gone. Just gone, not just the drink, but the cup and everything. So I stopped dancing and just stood there and laughed because I was so confused about where my drink went. That was when Cassie told me to come to the bathroom with her so we went to the bathroom and some girl came out of a stall crying and she ran up to me and hugged me and kept crying and yelling "YOU LOOK SO GOOD! OH MY GOSH YOU LOOK GOOD! (sob sob)"

Then my mom was a party pooper and said it was time to come home and she was waiting to pick me up outside and I'm like, it's only 2!! Then I remembered I had to be up bright and early for work and decided ... yes, it's probably for the best and I may as well take advantage of her offer to drive me home just in case I have no other way.

The end! Very fun night .... I so wish I could have stayed later :(

A quick update before I head out!

Obviously, since it's Halloween and all, I will be partying. I'm off to some huge Halloween bash hosted by a local bar. There's supposed to be 4500 people at it! Dang... I'm a little nervous, being such a petite, cute girl, and this local bar is known for it's date rape horror stories ... but I'll stick close to my friends and I made myself up to look as unattractive as possible.

Everyone have a good time and a safe Halloween! Hopefully I will get around to updating about tonight sometime tomorrow...

Also, I have some good news and bad news... the bad news is, Alex's college was not what he expected and it just didn't work out for him, and he's feeling upset about it ... the good news is he'll be home on Monday! I'm so excited to see him again and at the same time I feel bad that it didn't turn out well all the way across the country, but he's 19. Plenty of time for him to figure wout what he loves and wants to do for a career.

Today was quite fun, we started a new chapter in our textbooks finally and I really should be resting for the exam based on last chapter tomorrow morning, but I should probably also work on THIS. Teena brought out three huge bins of the most disgusting old greasy wigs I've ever seen, and for some reason we all put them on our heads anyway. I took some pictures on my phone but I'm technologically handicapped AND lazy and I don't feel like figuring out how to upload those right now. See? I need my boyfriend to come home and help me figure technological stuff out because me and computers just don't get along at all.

After school I ate supper and then I went to Jackass 3D ... with my ... parents ...... awkward.
You see, unfortunately for me, all my 18+ friends either moved away over the summer or don't do R-rated films or drink or anything ... so I brought my parents. Yaaaaay.
Damn that movie was FUNNY though. I think it may be my favourite. Probably because most of it was funny and less of it was disgusting. I don't do super well with puke and poop and what not (we'll see how I function as a mother, AHHH), and this one had a little bit less of that than the other two Jackass movies. It was the same old mindless shit we all enjoy for some insane reason, only fresh. So it gets my approval.

Holy brown eyes Batman (also that's my Steve-O face)

Ohhh yes... it's probably not noticeable in the picture, I mean, I can hardly notice it myself when I just look, but last week we cut my layers in my hair reeeeally short. I don't really notice it at all, but when I'm styling it, UGH. And it is a BITCH when I have to put it in a ponytail, it falls out all over the place. And that friends, is why Blythe hates layers. They just bug me so much when I have to style them. But ... I had so much split ends and nodules in my hair, so it just kinda had to go. My hair is considerably easy to brush at least ... but UGH, ponytails!

Also I found this picture of me ... I miss having colourful hair :(

Tuesday, October 19, 2010

Well, one of my followers was kind enough to point out that I'm pretty much failing about the one post a day thing already so I decided to make a quick update.

I think my goal is at least one a week for now, because lately I've been busy busy with ... I don't know, I've just been busy. Maybe not busy. Maybe just distracted? I don't know, I've been making a lot of plans, and since I have to wake up at 6:30 every morning I kind of get home around 11:00 and go straight to bed. Ooh, I know ... I'll update one weekends. I have plenty of free time then, after I work. So ... yes, I suppose that is what I will do. But I really should talk about yesterday ...

So we have our instructor, Megan and our other instructor who also owns the academy, Teena. Usually Megan is at the school in the morning and Teena comes later in the day after dropping her daughter off at daycare. These past few weeks though, Megan has been deciding to only come pretty much every second day which means that Teena has to bring her daughter with her to the school, which doesn't exactly go well...

On the weekend Teena had to be out of town and was planning on travelling home on Monday morning to get back to school in the afternoon. So she was counting on Megan to actually be there so that, you know, we could learn stuff. But, Megan bailed at 7:10 yesterday when school started at 8:00, and luckily Teena was able to get ahold of everyone to let them know that school couldn't start until the afternoon. It sounds like Teena hasn't been able to get ahold of Megan since, so it's looking like Teena will have to bring her daughter with her to school daily for now. Teena doesn't talk about it, but it's definitely sounding like this is the last straw for Megan. Megan's a really nice girl, but she didn't take her job seriously at all and wasn't challenging us or even grading us properly, and frankly I'm kind of surprised Teena let it go on for so long. So we had class with Teena this morning, and I really did like it a lot better. I actually learned how to do pincurls PROPERLY. I'm thinking school might get a little more ligit now. I mean, it may be welfare, but in the end I'm getting the same license as I would at any cosmetology school so I definitely want to have the confidence that I'm doing it right and getting the grades I deserve.

Alrighty. Here I go. Making a post EVERY DAY. Starting today.

Even though today wasn't super interesting.

So it started when I woke up and went to work. The only thing there is to say about work was it was very very busy and there was glitter EVERYWHERE. But I'm not complaining, sparkles and glitter are my two favourite things on earth. Why was there glitter everywhere then? Well, we started getting in our Christmas stock ... which means sparkly, shiny decorations. The warehouse is looking pretty pimpin with all the pretty glitter everywhere.

Afterwards I went to Sarah's birthday party (her birthday was on the 7th, but she waited til today to have her party for some reason. Pff, crazy girl). She turned 18 ... but she's pretty conservative? not sure what word I should use for that ... so there was no alcohol to be found. No bars. No lottery tickets. No fun stuff that you can do when you're eighteen. Even if she did want it, she has no ID ... but no problem! We had fun anyway, playing "Italian Twister" and "four on a couch." Unfortunately, halfway through four on a couch I nearly died. I for reals thought that it was the end of me. I suddenly got these two HUGE cramps on both sides of my lower belly area and it BURNED. I could barely move but I wanted to just leave and lie down so I thought it would be an okay idea to walk home. It grew steadily worse though and eventually I was just heaved over in pain and Lana, who kindly offered to walk me home, picked me up and carried me the rest of the way. And when we got home, I went straight to my bed and I am still here, in my bed. I laid in the exact same position for an hour because it made my stomach hurt less, and eventually the pain went away enough that I decided it was okay to stand up again. But it wasn't. But at least it didn't hurt as much the second time.

Now it only hurts a little bit if I bounce around too much. It's definitely feeling better than it was. I'm not sure what it could have been that made me hurt SO TERRIBLY, but I'm glad it's over. I was seriously considering making a trip to the ER which would NOT have made this a fun night. It was certainly an interesting night, that's for sure. But it's 2:00 in the morning and I never though I would say this but the reason I'm still up is because i need to harvest my crops on Farmville. It's Lana's fault I'm all of a sudden into this. I don't know how she convinced me to start playing it. But it's sucked me in. AAAARRRRGGGH.

I'm bad.

I've been sooo terrible at updating lately. Probably the worst I've ever been. So I will tell you really quickly about my Thanksgiving and then tomorrow I will start updating EVERY DAY. For reals this time.

So, Thanksgiving was in a word, delicious. I got so stuffed with turkey on Sunday ... then I went clubbing. Because that is how we do it.

Really though, my cousin Brett is a drummer who works with a DJ known as DJ Kav. And due to some past drama, I have never met Brett as far as I know. I'm told I have before though, twice, but since I was too young to remember it, I consider this to be the first time we've met. Finally, someone in my family who I belong to! I was so positive that I was the only one in my entire Mennonite family who enjoyed dancing and loud music and lights and ... well, club life in general. But then I met Brett, and he's been working with a legit DJ for three years and is hired by various clubs all over the province. AND he's coming here soon! Sometime in the next few months. I am excited out of my mind because all my friends can see how cool my cousin is!! Heheheh.

If you're interested, they are known as drumndj and you can check them out here.

My blah week ... briefly ...

Here I am after yet another loooooong week. I am so tired; I haven't been sleeping well at all. Well, it's not that I haven't been sleeping well, it's just that I get so distracted. And I don't mean by the Internet like most insomniacs (or so it seems), but by phone calls from people just needing someone to talk to late into the night, mostly from my darling Alex ... but I'm not complaining about him keeping me up. Talking to him is worth it. :)

Anyway, Monday we got out kits. Teena told us that our curling irons were on back order and that worried me that they would take forEVER but they arrived in good time, at the beginning of our third week. Not too bad at all. Moving everything from the case to the trolley was hard work though ... well, not so much the moving as the cleaning out of the trolley from whoever had it before me... it was disgusting! One drawer was full of hair, the other seemed to have haircolour spilled all over in it, and another was stuffed full of end papers, and it took me so much longer than my other three classmates to finally complete the tasks. Ugh. I am going to be sure and be nice to whoever comes to the school after me, and clean out my trolley properly.

Tuesday, we learned roller sets, which is probably one of our favourites so far. It's almost as easy as braiding, only it doesn't hurt your hands. And it's easier than finger waves and your hands don't get all greasy! Yay roller sets! ... but after the sets are out you have to tease the hair and make it big and smooth it out and blah blah blah, takes forever and it's so hard to get it perfect for the picky instructor ... though I guess it's good she's picky, because even though roller set are from a billion years ago, we gotta learn them properly anyway. Oh well.

Wednesday: We got our booklets and now we aren't doing heads and heads and heads of roller sets, braids and finger waves for nothing! Yay for actually getting marked!!

Today: was rough. Grrrr ... I was so tired this morning because like I said, no sleep at all. I got to bed at about 1:30 every night, fell asleep around 2. So I wasn't really up for drawing my eyebrows so I didn't bother. I think I look really pretty without them anyway. So I went to school and Amber saw me and said really loudly "EWWW you look ILL!" and basically that was a flamethrower to my confidence's face. I mean really ... I thought I looked nice and even still ... no one likes to be told they look ill when they were less or no makeup. I mean I think I looked a bit like a martian or something but that's part of why I like it ... but not ill ... or ugly ... well, after that little incident she wanted to style my hair, so she did and she didn't really do a great job ... she tried to curl it and got one side really good and the other stayed pretty straight and she used SO MUCH HAIRSPRAY and her hairspray STINKS. So I had a lopsided, smelly hairstyle and the side that was curly kept getting in my face so I put it up in a ponytail, again, I thought it was really cute, and Amber was all offended and what not and I'm like ... well I'm offended when you tell me I look ill so YOU can suck it up. It drives me crazy sometimes when people are so insensitive and can dish it out but can't take it. Honestly, some of the girls at my school (well MOST of the girls at my school) just drive me INSANE!

Anyway I went shopping today and three cute tops and some awesome socks with jolly rogers on them so I can show everyone how much of a pirate I am =) Because the people don't believe me that I am a pirate and make fun of me when I tell them I am. Jerks.

Saturday, September 25, 2010

My classmates rudely commented on the fact that my hair looks much better blonde and I should never dye it pink again. So I didn't.

They are going to hate me even more.

Friday, September 24, 2010

Again I say

Curls just don't suit me. Although these are actually kind of pretty. They started out looking like an afro or maybe some 50's pincurls but I fixed it and I think I could get used to it ... maybe. And I WILL put a picture up TOMORROW and add the other picture of last Thursday's curls. TOMORROW. Right now I have an online date with Alex. Ugh ... online dates ... why can't we just be a normal couple ...

Yesterday, and today

Yesterday I did a pedicure on my first client. I wasn't nervous, but the day before I kept thinking, wouldn't it be funny if my first pedicure, the client had the grossest feet in the world? Well, it's not that it WASN'T funny ... UGH, this is hard to explain, but basically she had gotten her big toenails removed ... or at least partially. Her whole toe was blank except for a little sliver of a toenail in the middle ... kind of a teardrop shape too, the top was very long and looked very pointy ... eww. The rest of the nails were still compeletely there, but very long and thick and when I was trimming them, they were flying everywhere and one hit me in the forehead :( And don't even get me started on her crazy huge callouses that I was trying to shave off. Just NASTY. She gave me a $5 tip though ... which was pretty nice of her. And she was very friendly :)

TODAY: was pretty good but at the same time really really awful and I don't feel like writing about it because all I can think of right now is how terrible the awful parts were. Goodnight.

Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday

I felt too lazy to update about any of those days. So here's a brief update about my weekend:

Thursday: was not the weekend yet. I went to school again and we finished braiding nice and early, about two hours in. Then we did manicures ... I think? I forget what we did after that but in the afternoon we started scalp massages. After Jesse finished my massage she styled my hair with a billion little spiral curls that everyone else LOVED. I thought it was ... well, pretty ... but it definitely was NOT "me." Or maybe I just need to get used to it ... I don't know. I'll post a picture tonight.
The power went out around 3:00 so we all got to go home early. I hadn't finished putting the cooling conditioner on Jesse's hair, I only got one half of her head done when it went out so she had to drive home with half her head freezing cold. She said she didn't mind because she liked the feeling. I think she's crazy. I couldn't stand having the cooling conditioner on my head, it felt really really weird and I didn't like having a cold head.
So I hitched a ride with Brandi back home and went to Lana's and we went on a walk and chilled and it was a fun evening.

Friday: I had been called into work for 9-5 but I woke up quite ill as I had been getting a cold all week. YUCK. So I called in and slept all morning and had a really really weird dream about my grandparents wanting to rape me and it freaked me WAY OUT. WHAT KIND OF EFFED UP KID AM I TO DREAM SOMETHING LIKE THAT?? It sounds stupid but it was a very real, very terrifying dream and I never want to speak of it again. Then I was feeling better in the afternoon so I made a trip to the bank, then a trip to the liquor store that evening because I was out of rum.

Saturday: I worked all day. That's all. OOH and I watched Glee for the first ever time ... and I totally have a crush on the little gay kid! Hahaha ... well, not quite a crush on HIM per say, but definitely a crush on his fashion sense. Dayum, that kid knows how to dress. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the one jacket he wore ... it was drummer jacket type thing and it was very hot and I want one just like it!

Sunday: I worked all day again. Then went for a little drive in the new car my parents got ... a Ford Fusion. For an icky Ford ... it's actually pretty nice. I think I can handle it. I would drive it myself but I have always despised driving and avoid it whenever I can. Even if it means waiting for like 15 minutes for my parents to pick me up from school everyday. I HATE DRIVING.

Wednesday, September 15, 2010

Wow, it's only my THIRD DAY of school?

That is what it is starting to feel like. The majority of today was ... BRAIDING. Of course I'm sure this is how any hair school would start out, as all hair schools in Canada *should* have the same curriculum. But it DOES get a little tiring ... I'm excited to move on, that's for sure ... hopefully next week? We're still waiting for our kits to come in (HOW did Teena forget order them? Grrrr ...)

I did finally get to learn pedicures today. I found out that I am absolutely horrible at painting the nails, but they tell me I do really good massages. Yay, something I'm good at other than corn rows (because I cannot tell you how sick I am getting of corn rows)!

Then this afternoon we learned manicures. Amber taught Alyssa how, and lucky for me they were right behind me so I could hear all the instructions. Why is that lucky? Well ... the girl who taught me apparently doesn't do it properly ... she did it in about a third of the time it took Amber to do Alyssa's manicure, and she seemed to be skipping a lot of steps ... and my polish looked like ... well, not good (ha, I removed it now). So I will just kind of combine what I learned from the pedicure, what I learned in grade 10 cosmetology a billion years ago, and what I learned from listening in on Amber teaching Alyssa, and I should be able to come up with a pretty decent manicure for when I start practicing tomorrow.

Oh, Teena got a dog last night and brought the little thing to school. It's one of those little step-on dogs ... I think she said it was a yorkie crossed with chihuahua. UGH it's dumb, because he's a small dog, so he darts around the building because he's terrified of everyone. At least he isn't yappy like other step-on dogs ... but he could get less shy sometime *shudder* And that is why BIG dogs like Daisy are the way to go. Also, this little guy (Teena's daughter named him Friday) pees all over the place. And he took a really stinky crap right behind my station while I was half-heartedly continuing my corn rows. I WANT THE KITS TO COME SO WE CAN MOVE ONTO SOMETHING ELSE UUUGHHHH

Ooh, but Teena said, since it's freezing outside and supposed to snow tonight which is pretty insane considering it should still be fairly sunny ... everyone who comes to school anyway gets a nice long scalp massage! ... which seems to be a good thing, even though I'm not really sure if I would enjoy a scalp massage ... I feel like it would be awkward, someone just scrubbing their fingers all over my scalp ... oh well. I want the hours so I guess I will go tomorrow anyway, of course. I only have 1,360 hours left after that!

My SECOND day of school ... !

Today was not quite as fun as yesterday ... I have managed to catch this terrible cold, despite the fact that I have been stuffing my face with echinacea and Cold FX. And I braided for another ten hours straight ... my fingers actually started bleeding :(

Megan (the instructor) managed to be there today. She is quite different from Teena. She seems to be veeeeeeeeery serious.

I was supposed to be learning pedicures in the afternoon today, but they started with my other two classmates and didn't get around to me and the other guy today. So we get to start our pedicures first thing in the morning. I would have liked to do it at the end of the day, like the others did ... that would have felt sooooo good after standing all day. Ah well, at least we won't be doing much more braiding tomorrow. Because after we finish our pedicures, we move onto manicures! So it should be a better day tomorrow.

Ooh, and creepy toe guy came back again today, this time to get his finger nails done. He didn't get those painted though, he just wanted the top and base coat. Then he apparently picked up an application to the school ... which is weird because he is really not girly at all and he's pretty old, maybe in his forties, and balding ... it just doesn't seem right. Megan thought he got the manicure and pedicure just because he liked to be pampered as most men secretly do, but now she thinks (and she probably says this just to be funny, but I'm not so sure) that he noticed that there was a male in my class and now wants to join. I don't know ... but he sure is an intersting character. Weird old men just seem to follow me about.

My first day of school!

School finally started for me, yay! Now I get to learn how to ACTUALLY do hair, instead of my own made-up methods (which work well, but there MUST be easier ways to do everything...)

So the day was VERY uninteresting. Of course we had to start with the basics, braiding... we did our French and Dutch braids for the entire ten-hour day. Teena is a perfectionist (as a hairdresser SHOULD be!!) so she wouldn't let us move on until our braids were GOOD and EVEN and TIGHT. I mastered mine first out of the four other people in my class ... and I'm the youngest! But then again ... I already knew how to braid French and Dutch ... so I kind of had an advantage. But I was quite proud that I impressed the instructor with my second attempt at a French braid, then first attempt at a Dutch :) My fingers are so sore now ... From 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM it was constant braiding, un-braiding, then re-braiding using AWFUL old-school Barbie hair (pure plastic) ... YUCK. No matter how many times you combed it, you still had to yank it apart to get it sectioned so it was extremely hard to get the braid tight. But as Teena mentioned ... "Look on the bright side, if you can braid THIS you can braid ANYTHING!"

Ooh - ONE interesting thing happened today. This guy came in, and he looked like the one guy from Trailer Park Boys (I'm sorry, I don't watch it so I have no idea what their names are), the guy with the big glasses and combover. Minus the big glasses. But there was certainly an uncanny resemblance ... ANYWAY we were almost done our lunch break when Teena came in to tell Alyssa (? I think that was her name but I met a LOT of girls that day and I could be confusing them) that her client was their early so she should finish her lunch fifteen minutes early and take the client. So Alyssa got up and went out of the break room, then came back in and said, "THAT'S my client?" and said she didn't want to do him and asked Teena if she could give her client to someone else. Teena seemed to be in a bad mood and made her take the client anyway ... and I was confused because, yes, working with a combover would be gross but I could suck it up and do it anyway ... then I came back into the room where we were braiding to reluctantly start the braiding back up again ... and there was Alyssa working on this weird Trailer Park guy's FEET. Apparently the reason she was so concerned with working on him is because he didn't want a haircut ... he wanted a PEDICURE. And he didn't look like the most hygenic guy in the world ... and he DID have disgusting feet. The longeset toenails I have ever seen, which he asked to keep long and have painted BRIGHT SPARKLY turquoise. Brandy whispered to me, he is either gay or has an intense foot fetish, or both. I wonder ... but I don't really want to know :/

So that was pretty much my first day of school! Pretty long day, being on my feet and braiding the entire time. But, every hairstylist has to start with that of course ... curriculum and what not. 10 hours of hairstyling down, 1,390 to go! And Teena said that since we were so quick at learning our braids, we would move onto pedicures tomorrow. Which means we could potentially be taking our own clients next week. And all I can think is hopefully, I won't get a Trailer Park guy xD Apparently he was a construction worker ... I don't understand how his feet could be comfortable in his work boots, with his long toenails ... how does he prevent ingrowns ...? (shudder)

Also, today I noticed I had TEN followers! I didn't realise anyone would actually start to follow me ... I just ran out of pages in my daily journal so I decided to make something that DOESN'T run out of pages ... and I didn't think my life was THAT interesting ... now I feel pressured to actually put something interesting on here! Heheh, but not really :P

While I wait for my nails to dry

Just decided to make an entry about my day while I am waiting for my nails to dry (I can't go to bed nice and early while my nails are still wet you see). Well, today I woke up and went to church. They are trying this new thing where we split up our one church into two churches because apparently we don't all fit into one. I don't know why we are doing this, as I think it would be a much better idea just to either build a new church or renovate the one we already have. I have a little theory of what most likely, actually, probably inevitably, will happen if continue with this idea of splitting into two churches.

In biology I remember our teacher telling us about this experiment where 100 flies were taken and put into an environment, with a solid wall splitting them and separating them into groups of 50. After just a few months of them breeding with only the flies on their side of the environment, the two groups could no longer breed with each other as they had become two different species of flies altogether. This is what I am afraid will happen to our church. They say they split us because they think it will make us able to expand and become unified, but I think that all it will do is make us two separate churches. Which brings me to a difficult decision. Which church should I go to? I have an even split of friends in between them ... so maybe I'll just have to alternate? Today I went to the smaller one, the new one, closer to my house. There was hardly anyone there and it was a pretty decent service, same as it usually is ... and we have my favourite worship team and this church. But there will also be things I miss about the old church ... so I think next Sunday I will have to go back to the old one. God made me a social butterfly ... so I guess I will have to do my best.

After church, I ate some delicious soup because I was cold because of the whopping two degrees it was outside. I guess it IS almost fall, but that is still freezing. And the sun STILL hasn't come out since Alex left ... well, it did for a little while yesterday, good thing too because I needed to get a little bit of sun on the day that I was saying good-bye to a good friend. I believe that Sherel is with the Lord now and happier than we can imagine, and we'll see her again one day :)

ANYWAY ... I wanted to get a bag for school, so that I could keep my school stuff out of my purse and my purse stuff can stay in my purse. So I went out and ended up finding a cool one at work, and I think it suits me well. The pattern is kind of like argyle, but instead of diamonds it uses hot pink hearts. I think it's really cute. Then I went home, got my dog, and went off to Lana's house to join her on a little walk. When I got there though, I found her underneath a million blankets and she said she wasn't feeling well, so we just sat and talked for hours, sharing memories of Sherel mostly. It was a really good talk that we had. I'm glad we have each other still to support each other ... Lana was in the accident as well and I have no idea what I would do if I had lost her, too ... now THAT would have killed me. After talking for ... probably about four hours, my sister called to tell us to come over for pizza. Kind of a good thing because my throat was sore from blabbing so much. Laurel was there just for a quick visit and some tea apparently, and Gavin was there for a board game night. After Laurel left we continued our tea drinking and started a good game of Rummoli. I was having terrible luck as usual with that game and lost pretty much everything. It was fun though. I had to dye my hair tonight so that it would be nice and fresh for school so I had to leave the game early, so I Skyped with Alex the whole time I was dying my hair (which I'm sure must have been entertaining for him). Sigh ... I miss him so much and I am so very excited for Christmas when I get to have him for two whole weeks! Then he goes back and I have to miss him again ... ugh ... this is so much harder than I had anticipated ... but I have no doubt that we are going to work this long distance thing out. I love you Alex :)

Your favourite colour

It's a year old, but it's one of the best pictures I could find of us ... and it WAS a really fun memory.
Today we decided we would all wear purple. It was awesome to visit your high school and see at least HALF the kids there all wearing your favourite colour to honour you. You were so popular ... and who can blame you? You were an awesome friend to everyone.

... and now, for a more positive post!

Things haven't been particularly easy for me lately ... I think that's been pretty clear. But now that I've seen how quickly something can just end ... I think now it's time to really start living. I'm not going to have lasting fights over stupid things. I'm not going to spend a day sitting at home knowing that there's better things I could be doing and then not doing them. I am going to thank God that my BFF Lana is safe and sound every day. I have always been a pessimist ... but I think it's time to give optimism a try. It will be difficult at first ... but I need to be tougher, like Lana. She is the strongest person I know right now, and I admire that. I need to start looking on the bright side again. I need to spend less time on myself and more time with others and being helpful and putting myself out there. Yes, that's what I'll do, and since I can't think of anything else to say and I am terrible at closing, I will leave it at that.

Vent about dentists.

Yes ... that's right: dentists. I can't stand them. Now, if I meet a person on the street that just so happens to be a dentist, I'm not going to be like, 'Ew, you're a dentist? I hate you already.' Of course not, that would be silly. But if you try and get into my mouth and tell me how I don't floss right and I need braces and blah blah blah... I'm sorry, but I am going to find it extremely difficult to be nice to you.

Perhaps I should start from the top ...

Well, let's see, I think I was about ... seven? when I needed to get a cavity filled. It wasn't my first filling, but the dentist had always made me a little nervous. I sat in the chair nervously and he began to work. All of a sudden, I started coughing and choking and nearly dying; apparently the drill wasn't attached properly and had fallen off down my throat and now I was choking on it. Eventually it got unstuck, but instead of coming out of my mouth it went further down my throat and got stuck again. At least it wasn't blocking my wind pipe anymore. But I did get very very sick after a while, and I had to go to the hospital for three days and have surgery to get the drill bit out. Then the dentist didn't even apologize because apparently it was all my fault it fell off. I didn't buy it and now I believe that that man was evil.

Moving on to present day ...

Last night my parents told me they had scheduled a dentist appointment for this morning. Well geez, I thought, I'm eighteen and I don't need you to schedule appointments for me anymore. I can do it myself when I need to. But NOOOO, they said that I HAD to go to the dentist.

So this morning, I stayed in my room and didn't get started on my hair, make-up, anything. Then my mom knocks on my door and asks why I'm not up yet, my appointment is in half an hour. I cleverly blamed it on 'my alarm that didn't go off.' So I rolled out of bed and decided to take my time and make sure I didn't miss a step, because as we all know, we must look good for the dentist ... (not really, I was just stalling because I hoped I would just miss the appointment obviously).
- my hair straight as straight can be
- really good eyeshadow, that will stay in place all day
- mascara AND false eyelashes, for double the volume
- my eyebrows perfectly symmetrical
- luscious lipstick
- the PERFECT outfit
I did all this in hopes that I would miss my appointment, which I did, as this all took an hour. I was thinking, yes, this day is going well, it is indeed. But my mom came downstairs and said my appointment is still on. There was no escape now. I said I needed to brush my teeth first, and I brushed them for a LOOOOOONG time. So long, that they felt like I had already had them cleaned by the dentist.

Then me and my mom drove to the dentists office. Lucky for me, they called me in as soon as I walked through the door. And lucky for me, it was my second least favourite dentist (next to the one that put me in the hospital). Now, I admit that when we first switched dentists after the incident that I wasn't in the mood to be particularly friendly to her, but I felt I was decent enough. But apparently something about me just triggers her hate bone and we kind of fight all the time. My mom notices it too, this dentist is very mean to my sister and dad as well. Last time I came to see her though, I was very very friendly, I was trying my most hardest-est. But it wasn't good enough and she was still such a bitch to me. This time, I was in a bad, bad mood.

I walk in and she says, 'How are you this morning?'
And I say truthfully, 'Pretty awful.'
And she says, 'Why?'
And I say, 'I had the worst week ever.'
And she says, 'It can't have been that bad.'
And I say, 'I don't feel like talking anymore.'
And she got to work on my teeth. Then, with her hands in my mouth (because for some reason dentists want to start conversations with you when you can't even talk properly), she asks, 'Where are you working these days?'
I wait about thirty seconds for her to finally get her ugly hands out of there, and I say, 'I said, I don't feel like talking anymore.'
And her eyebrows above her mask crease and she says, 'Why do I even bother talking to you,' and mumbles something that sounds a lot like 'you little snob.'
And I noticed everything seems a lot rougher and hurts like hell. I look at the spit sucker thing and I notice everything it sucks is not clear, but red. I look at the dentist, whose eyebrows are still creased and ugly looking. As I sit with the fluoride in my mouth, blood and spit trickle down my chin. When she was finally done, my whole mouth was throbbing, but I didn't want to tell her how much it hurt because then she would be satisfied. So I didn't complain once. As I got up she said, 'Just because you had an awful week doesn't mean you can be rude.'
And I said, 'One of my friends was killed in an accident the other day, I'm not really concerned about being rude at the moment.' I hope she feels like a dick now.

Then I came out to my mom in the waiting room and my mom said it seemed like a really short time. I said it was, because the dentist was a jerk and wanted to make it really painful for me. My mom says we're switching dentists for me again. Maybe I'll actually get a friendly one.

So ... that's the story of why I hate going to the dentist. I was traumatized when I was seven then we switched to a dentist that hates my whole family. It sounds very dramatic ... but believe me, it is that dramatic. It really sucks actually. Ah well, chin up, when it's time to go to the dentist again, I'm going to be moved out and my parents won't be able to schedule an appointment for me. I'm going to try and skip it altogether. I've had no cavities or anything since I was ten, and I like my crooked teeth, they're kind of cute and they look like fangs. So I have no reason to go.

Receiving the phone call at work was the weirdest thing, it felt like all the fluids had drained out of me but I felt so much heavier instead of lighter ... and walking across the store so I could get my things and go home after hearing the news was so difficult and slightly embarrassing, everyone staring at me crying and asking what was wrong, but I couldn't bring myself to care ... her Facebook status this morning said 'You're gonna miss me 'till the day you die'

Wow, Sherel ... it's weird, you probably didn't realize how true your status was going to be when you updated it ... it's very true, so many people including me are going to miss you so much. You were such a good and loyal friend. I'll miss getting your random little texts of, 'heyy, what's up?' haha. I wish we had hung out this summer ... I barely saw you at all. You were so beautiful inside and out, and I love you man. As you said, I will miss you 'til the day I die. ♥ RIP girlie. We had a get together at my place tonight, all the youth group kids were there plus more, just for you. ♥

I hope I see her again one day up there, partying it up with Jesus and what not :) What a glorious day that will be.

I just got the most fantastic boots that cannot be described with words. I will have to photograph them and show them off ... tomorrow. Because it is late. This always happens to me ... I want to post a picture but it's too late to do all the resizing and uploading that has to be done ... then I'm such a procrastinater that I keep saying that I'll do it, I'll do it, but then I put it off for so long and forget about it. I'm going out with my friends tomorrow night though, and I plan on wearing those babies! So there will for sure be pictures. and they WILL get put up. I may just have to end up making a big mass picture post or something instead. Silly, silly me.

They're a little bit humongous. But they're also a little bit AMAZING.

Wednesday, September 1, 2010

An old lady came into work today and told me I look just like a doll. I said thank you and she said, 'Oh, dear, I didn't mean that as a compliment.'

And I didn't know what to say ... I mean, I don't see anything wrong with looking like a doll, in fact I quite enjoy it. :)


The sun tricked me!! It rained almost all day today ... cleared up a bit this evening but by then it was too late in the day to warm up at all. Anyway, I went to my friend Danae's going away party as she is going off to college as well ... everyone is leaving me :( It makes me wish it wasn't too late to try and get into another cosmo college elsewhere ... preferrably in a much bigger city ... like somewhere in Ontario so I'm close to Alex ... but alas, it is much too late and I am one of the only ones of my friends still here in this tiny town. Well, I do have plenty more, it's just that they're a bit younger than me which rules out any fun bar nights anymore (though I can still have fun with them other ways, it's just bar nights are a different kind of fun). Oh well ... I'll be at school in two weeks and hopefully working a lot so I won't have time to be bored anyway. AND hopefully it warms up outside soon ... I'm a cold-blooded mutant meaning when it is cold, I am very cold, and when it is hot, I'm perfectly fine. Also, I'm solar powered WHICH MEANS that when I don't get sun, I get slothy and blah. so I need my sun!

Tuesday, August 31, 2010

The sun FINALLY decided to show its face in the late afternoon/evening. So I decided to go and pick some crabapples from our backyard. The apples looked really red, especially against the green leaves. It made me think of Christmas and made me wish it was winter ...

The apples were surprisingly SOUR. But I like them best that way. MMMM sour things.

New banner

I don't know if it's the most 'me' picture, and I didn't try too hard on making it look nice ... but at least it actually fits the area and it will do for now. I looked through all my pictures and couldn't decide what would work best for this, so I just chose the prettiest picture of me I could find. However, it's just as I thought. I may have to go out and take more pictures of me ... hehehe, yay! I love having and excuse for a photoshoot. Now I just need to come up with something to put in the background and my blog will be prettified to perfection. :)

My dear Fluffy

is not looking so good. (click on smaller pictures to enlarge them.)

My lovely venus fly trap Fluffy is looking a bit unhealthy, I'm guessing because the temperature has been less than five degrees all week and the poor little guy needs hot weather with lots of sun. I've been keeping him in his terrarium as much as possible, and I just gave him lots of distilled water so hopefully he feels a bit better. I don't think I should be too worried about it ... he's probably starting his hibernation early because the cold weather tricked him. He's grown a lot over the summer though, I expect next summer he's going to need a bigger pot! What a good boy Fluffy is <3

When I take a picture from this side he looks a little less rough:

Today I felt like changing my blog around a bit. I'm going to have to come up with a new banner because I am aware that it doesn't fit at all anymore. It didn't even quite fit the last banner but I was too lazy to change it. I just have to choose a picture to put on it ... Something really 'me.' I'll look around my pictures and choose a really good one. Or maybe I will have to take some new pictures for it ... we'll see I guess! I also want to add a background to peek out from either side as well. I'm going to prettify this blog up!

In other news, today hasn't been going so well for me ... my boyfriend left for school yesterday morning and I will only be seeing him three times in the next year. I'm feeling rather lonely without him ... I know that the initial sadness will wear off eventually and I'll get used to a long distance relationship (which I am really scared of ... it's rare that these sorts of things work out). But right now I'm just not feeling particularly well ... and the fact that it is always raining since he left and only two degrees outside doesn't help my mood at all. AND the beautiful necklace he gave me for my birthday which I like to wear everyday broke because clumsy me dropped it and I can't wear it anymore at the moment, until I try and glue it back together ... sigh. I'm sorry for complaining. It's just kind of been a hard week. At least I can work on editting those pictures he took of me the other day ... and working on my blog ... and finishing the New York posts ...

A quick update ...

on the current hair situation. I haven't posted any pictures of me with green for some reason. I dunno, maybe it's because I didn't take that many, because with my roots being as showy as they were it just didn't turn out the way I liked it. But, I changed my hair (again) and went out with Alex to take some pictures in the rain. I plan on editting them sometime, but some of them looked so gorgeous just on their own.

My favourite and his favourite, respectively:

Some of them turned out blurry because of the rain, but I like them.
Anyway Alex leaves tomorrow for school and isn't coming back for a year, so I have go and hang out with him now!

We are a somewhat unlikely couple ...

I'm baaaack ...

Where have I been you ask? Why I have been in New York all week and pretty much I didn't tell anyone. Because I'm cool like that and it's kind of fun to disappear suddenly for a little while. This will be a super long post of my days in Manhattan including pictures. Okay, GO.

Wednesday, August 18, 2010

At last we have landed in Newark, Jersey and made it to Manhattan, New York, where the Batman is close by. No sign of him yet, but we DID just get here. He has all week to show himself.
Getting all the way here was quite the adventure. In fact, it was just a big ridiculous hassle. On our way to Toronto from home, the windshield of our plane somehow managed to crack and we had to turn around. We ended up landing elsewhere, where it took two-ish hours to transfer everyone on that plane to a new flight. Finally when we landed in Toronto and they switched our tickets to Newark because we ended up missing ours because of the delay, we found that our luggage was missing. We had an hour before our flight and we couldn't get through customs without our baggage checked. So we waited because that's all they told us to do when we asked about it. Ten minutes before our flight departed our baggage was finally found. But there was still customs, which can take about 45 minutes. We waied in line for ten minutes, then a flight attendant came looking for us. He brought us to the front of the line (pissing off so many people who apparently didn't realize what it means if you are still in customs line when your scheduled departure time was five minutes ago). By the time we boarded, it should have left twenty minutes ago. It ended up leaving have an hour later than it was supposed to. Sigh ... I've heard stories about our airline sucking, but I haven't had anything terrible happen until now.
When we landed in Jersey, a limo driver offered to take us to Manhattan where ourpad is REALLY nice and I felt better. Also, of course, our first meal in the States had to be ... McDonald's.

Thursday, August 19, 2010

After breakfast this morning we took the underground subway, which became very crowded, to Times Square. We wandered around for a bit, trying to avoid eye contact with the people trying to sell us stuff, then we went into a Ripley's Believe it or Not! museum. It was pretty cool, but a lot of stuff in there seemed to be malfunctioning ... they definitely should have maintained it better. But the part that I found the coolest actually seemed to work just fine, and it was the primitive torture device section. I had a lot of fun in that little bit. Then we also had to take our time at the part called the Black Hole Spacey Hallways or someting like that. You know theo ne where you walk on a bridge and there's black light and the walls spin around you and it's hard to walk thought leaning to one side? Yeah, those are AWESOME.
Then I bought some gorgeous eyelashes from Sephora (which I swear there are at least eleven of in Manhattan), then delicious lunch at the Hard Rock Cafe. Then we explored and went on a touristy bus tour around the city. We saw the Empire State Building, Ground Zero, and almost a billion neat looking shops which I must remember to visit.
Then tonight was Wicked!! On Broadway of course. It was fantastic! I LOVED it. I was excited when I noticed that we got the Glinda understudy because in my experiences, the understudy tends to do a much better job than the main. She was exactly like Glinda should be. The costumes in Munchkinland were my favourite though. A lot of detail and they looked really good.
After the show we went to M&M World and checked out the three storeys of delicious goodness. We found some awesome M&M's with PRETZELS in them. I've never seen those in Canada... so we got some of course.

Friday, August 20, 2010

Alright, now I have to try and remember what we did today. Now is the part of summer holidays where all the days are blended into one day and you can't remember what day of the week it is, much less the date. So here goes nothing.
Today we went shopping mostly. I am not used to New York shopping ... it is always extremely busy, and when there ARE fitting rooms they are always full, usually with a line-up. So your best bet is to just guess your size and exchange it or refund it if needed. Luckily, as it turns out, I am a good guesser and I odn't need to return anything that I got today. I got a good striped long sleeved tee that will be good for wearing underneat stuff, a frillly-ish dress, a pretty vintage skirt, some gloves, and nifty tights! OOH and SUCH CUTE SHOES! All for under $100. Oh yeah, that's another thing. Everything is so cheap here, it's ridiculous! I love it!
After shopping we ate at a place called Jon's Pizzeria, where the service was pretty bad but the food was deeeelicious.
Then we went up the Empire State Building which was pretty cool but way less interesting than it sounds. Although it was getting late and it was very neat to see the sun go down and the lights slowly turn on in the city beneath us. Then I ate delicious chicken wings and doughnuts in the restaurant beneath the Empire State, Heartland Brewery. A good end to a very good day :)

Saturday, August 21, 2010

The first thing we did today was pick up our tickets for the Lion King. Then we had a bit of time to wander around before the matinee began, so I went and got a gift for my love chunk. I got him a cute little Luigi stuffed doll type thing. Maybe it's a stupid thing to get a full grown man but whatever. He always plas as Luigi when we play Super Smash Bros so he'll hopefully just think it's funny like I did.
Anyway, next was the Lion King, which would have been great except they did the most crazy cool stuff first which got me super excited for the rest of it which consequenstly seemed seriously lacking. But I will say this: Rafiki was fantastic and had a phenomenal voice. And the choral bits were beautiful. I just wish they would have saved the best for last, so I would leave with more positive thoughts.
Afterwards we walked around and did some more shopping. I bought a dress for $5! I love how cheap clothes in New York are :) Of course ... we have yet to visit a Haloween store ... and that is where most of my New York money will probably be spent.

Tonight we went on another sightseeing touristy bus around downtown Manhattan/Brooklyn to look at the city lights.
Anyway, tomorrow we apparently have to wake up early to go to some boat ride to Lady Liberty or something. So I'ma go to bed.

Sunday, August 22, 2010

Today we woke up at 6:00 so we could make it to the ferry to the Statue of Liberty before the whole crowd comes and what not because apparently the line-up to see it fills up the entire Battery Park pretty quickly. So we got there by 9:00 and there was no line at all at that time of day as it turns out so we got our tickets and everything and boarded the boat less than an hour later (there are metal detectors and bag checks everywhere). Shortly after we landed on the island it started pouring like CRAZY. Even if we HAD and umbrella it would have been useless because the wind would have flipped it inside out in to and a half seconds. So we got whatever pictures we wated as fast as we could and headed back on the boat and went to Ellis Island which I thought was much mor interesting. Mom wanted to watch the little half hour movie about the immigrants to America but the intersting thing for me was the museum, especially the old hospital beds from way back in the day. Because they're creepy :)
Alrighty, back in Manhattan we did a bit of walking/shopping, we returned a shirt that Emilee bought that didn't fit her, and we went to Ground Zero, which was just staring at a bunch of construction and was not interesting to any of us in the least. Then since we were all very wet and cold from the rain we went back to the apartment to change. We took the subway there and when we got out it was pouring like crazy and I basically looked like I had just gotten out of the shower by the time we made it to the apartment which was less than a block away. Crazy weather I tell you.
After we had changed and ate lunch and the rain had cleared up, we went back out for some more shopping/walking, then caught ANOTHER little sightseeing touristy bus to look around uptown Manhattan to look at where famour people Bono and John Lennon live/d. I loved looking at the pretty buildings.
I'll finish later, I'm bored.

Firstly ....

Check out these AWESOME TIGHTS that I wore yesterday :D

Secondly, I woke up about half an hour ago (sigh ... too much sleeping in ...) and have been sitting here like this:

for about 15 minutes. In 15 more minutes, I will wash it out. I am very excited for this new hair colour ... yes I am ...

Bad luck spirits are at work ...

It is not even 3:00 and I have definitely been feeling the effects of Friday the 13th. My alarm didn't go off and I slept til 11:00 (I hate sleeping that late, I feel like I'm wasting my day.) Then I had sooo many make-up malfunctions, my eyebrows took FOREVER. I'm afraid that my red contacts may have had it, I'm trying to clean them but they somehow got very dirty and I'm hoping they get fixed. I take good care of my colour contacts, I wish I knew how they managed to get that way :( And I FINALLY managed to get a false eyelash out of my eye. It was in there for like 15 minutes and it just was not working to get it out. Now my eyes are red, and not because of my red colour contacts, which are still sitting in solution that will hopefully get them back to normal. :( Sigh ... there is still hope, perhaps I will carry my good luck laughing skull with me and my day will get better.

I thought I should probably update about my birthday, so I will do that today. First I went and had a bit of sushi with my love chunk. By a bit, I mean only the teeniest bit, because I was still recovering from my sudden flu attack on Thursday. Hmmm, happy birthday, let's spend the day in the bathroom ... hmm ... yes. After that ... well, we didn't have much to do. So we just hung out at his place for a bit, he got me trying out a game called Brutal Legend ...? I think that's what it's called ...? Ah well, I couldn't figure out how to get out of the first room. So I tickled him.


Well, he left me to figure out Brutal Legend while he went and picked up my birthday present which he, as usual, left until last minute to do. But he got me awesome stuff, let's see, a pretty necklace, the new KoRn CD (at the moment I forget what it's called ...) and Rocky Horror Picture Show, which I have been meaning to buy for myself but always forgot to. Yay for birthday presents! From my parents I got all my school supplies (oh speaking of which, my transcripts finally came in the mail so I'm going to have to submit those to my school tomorrow I guess) and a fly trap. I forgot my camera at Alex's house because I'm retarded but I will have to post a picture of him. I named him Fluffy ... or at least I call him Fluffy for now, until I can think of something more creative.

We went out to Boston Pizza with all my buddies where I ordered two drinks for the first time using my own ID! I don't like to drink a lot, but I had to order to drinks because the first one turned out to suck and taste like stale water ... but the second one was a cocktail that included Sour Puss and I love Sour Puss so I found it exponentially better than the other drink. Then we all headed to my house to play some games and just hang out for the rest of the evening! It was fun.

Last night was also very much fun for me because my love chunk took me out to a restaurant which I have always heard many good things about but have never been able to try because I was still a little guy. It's called a 'family restaurant' which is strange because as it turns out if you wanted to take your family there to eat, your little sibling will have to wait in the car because there are no minors allowed. Alex and I shared a quasadilla and it was, indeed, delicious. Turns out all the good things about the food were true! What do you know.

Friday, August 6, 2010

It's my birthday. Everyone tell me how awesome I am. B)

Thursday, August 5, 2010

UUUUGHHH. Why do I seem to have such bad luck with concerts? First I had rare tickets to see MEATLOAF, and he got sick so no Meatloaf for me. And I found out a couple days ago actually that Lady Gaga was going to be doing a show about four hours from here that I would have loved to see on the 26th. But guess what? It was sold out the first week tickets went on sale, so even if I had known about it earlier, I doubt I would have gotten the chance to snatch some. BUT: there IS a Lady Gaga inspiration fashion show contest thing that I COULD do. If it wasn't tomorrow which is my birthday and I am staying in town for that. I could totally do that though, my style IS inspired by drag queens so I have some pretty outrageous stuff that I could throw together. And probably the fact that I actually LOOK like Lady Gaga would raise my chances at winning ... but NOOO, no Lady Gaga for Blythe :(

P.S. I'm not really sure if I do look that much like Lady Gaga, at work customers have come up to me and said I looked just like Lady Gaga, and when I just go out and about I get strangers saying that as well. Even my sister said she reminded her of me when Lady Gaga was on Ellen a while back ... huh. I definitely have a smaller nose than her...

My hat design in action!

This is the hat that I made a while back for Shay, and she finally got me a picture of her finished ensemble. Hat and stockings are mine ... I am so proud of how she made it work.

Sigh ... I've been wanting to update for a long time but I can't find my camera. I think my sister might have an idea where it is ... I'll look for it today. Geez how do I ALWAYS manage to lose it? I do know that it is DEFINITELY in the house somewhere.

Monday, August 2, 2010

Today we got all ready and packed up the boat and were going to go out to the lake and tube for a while. When we got out there, it was raining! Great, and I had JUST managed to convince Alex to come with us. So we just came back home and ate food and watched movies all day, heheh. We were having a Shamyalan/weird twist movie day ... so we watched The Others, The Sixth Sense, Panic Room, and Shutter Island, all AWESOME movies (go watch them if you haven't, because they are delightful, and don't worry, I won't give away that in Shutter Island it turns out the 67th is ... JUST KIDDING. But that one I thought was really predictable, called it right at the beginning.) Okay now I am so full of food and I am off to BED.

Friday, July 30, 2010

How sad ..

I had tickets to see Meatloaf tonight ... then I just found out he was sick and couldn't do the show :( How annoying! I was so excited! GRRR BEING SICK IS DUMB. Ahh well ... I have to finish my dread falls like I keep saying I'm going to do ... but for real this time, because I need them for my birthday in less than a week! Yay exciting!

I love kids but ..

There were so many crying ones at work today. Wow, I must have been surrounded by at least four screaming kids today. So mothers: don't be embarrassed when your kids cry in public. Even the good ones do.

Though some mothers let their kids get away with the worst stuff. I remember one day I was working the fitting rooms and a mother came with her son with three or four pairs of jeans for him to try on, and this kid was apparently quite frustrated because, "Mom! I DON'T want to try on jeans! Let's just go HOME!" and she would say, "It's just a few pairs, it won't take long, we just need to get some back to school shopping done." And he would say, "NO MOM. Just buy them all and we'll return what doesn't fit, let's just go HOME!" (and boy was he yelling at this point.) And mom said, "Okay sweetie, we'll go home." Wow, how does mom let her son talk to her that way? When I am a mother, my kids are going to RESPECT me. That's how I feel about that anyway. My kids will not get away with talking to me or their father like that, I strongly believe that children need to respect their parents.

On the other hand, this cute little boy was running around hiding in the clothes and jumping out at me as I hung them up today. He was SO cute! Sometimes I just adore kids!

I hope you enjoyed that huge block of text about kids, I am going to tell you about the dress I got today! It's so cute, and will probably be perfect for clubbing, which I will be legally old enough to do in 9 days!


I also got this year's birthday tiara today. Every year I buy myself a new tiara, to remind people that I am actually a princess. But on my birthday, I am the QUEEN!

Today I watched Joan Jett and the Runaways ... not a bad film. Not bad at all. Little gross at times ... but you know, she's Joan Jett ... and Kristen Stewart surprised me. I thought she was awful in Twilight (though I may be biased, I read the first two books way back in junior high and I hated them), but she pulled this role off pretty well. I guess since Joan is a pretty drippy greasy pill popper (of course we love her anyway), it just suited her.


Really though, is it just me, or does she always look extremely sick and tired no matter where she is or what role she's playing? It kind of grosses me out to be honest ... she seems unhealthy.

Monday, July 26, 2010

I should start getting good at updating again. I started this blog so I would have a daily diary when mine ran out of pages, and I'm doing AWFUL so far. Time to get started again. Every night before bed, I will update about my day. It's official. Let's do this. Right now I am waiting for my 6000 songs to transfer onto my laptop ... this may take a while, so I should paint my nails and/or colour my hair.

Looking right nasty after being outside in the sweaty heat ...

I have found it


I remember LOVING this when I was eight. It has everything - wizards, one-eyed cats, flying gnomes, and cows that are on fire. The best thing ever for an eight-year-old who loves horses ... especially horses with horns on their foreheads.

Also, I finished one dread fall at last, haha.

Sunday, July 18, 2010

I made this hat for my friend:

Because she wanted to dress as the Madhatter for something. I don't really get what it was for really, but I told her to send me a picture of the whole ensemble. I wish she had given me a bit more notice though, because I could have done way better on the hat! I would have added some ribbon ... ah well, too late now, and she was quite happy with it.

Then today I went to the circus (I did research on this one, as far as I can tell there are no scandals involving animal abuse since 2003, so I think they're pretty good to their creatures and they did seem happy). And after the circus, Emilee, Jen, Chris and Jackson went for a drive through the countryside and watched two storms that were coming from either side of us. It was pretty epic and my sister got some pictures that I can hopefully steal from her and post on here. After the storms quieted down, it kept raining pretty hard so we came back down and I put my dirty muddy countryside legs in the puddles (which were surprisingly extremely warm).

Hahahaha my legs got so gross and muddy xD


Tuesday, July 13, 2010

Off to a good start...

I finally was able to go to the post office and pick up my hair (the postman is afraid of dogs and won't come to the door to deliver if my dog is outside, and I've been too busy with other things to go and get it). Here is the beginnings of a wicked new set of falls! I only have about 13 dreads made so far ... I like to have about 30-35 dreads on each of my falls, so there is still a lot of work to do. I don't really like fresh made dreads ... I can never make them smooth right off the bat ... luckily after a couple of wears they kind of loosen and smooth themselves out. But when they are brand new ... ugh, they feel so scratchy and hard and lumpy. At least these ones are going to look awesome and match my pretty new hair colour:

(please excuse the greasiness, we don't have AC at work)

This is the band that I can't get enough of this week:

One of the main things I look for in a favourite band is how danceable the music is. The lyrics also have a lot to do with it. Unfortunately, it's pretty hard to find dance music that has really good lyrics. Fortunately, the Knife has both good dance beats and really interesting lyrics. I'm not exactly sure what they mean a lot of the time, but they sure are some lyrics.

Also, my dread hair got here a while ago, but the postman didn't want to come up to our house to deliver it because of my dog, haha. So tomorrow I have to go and get it. And tonight I have to colour my hair a nice, violent purple colour. Yes, VIOLENT.

Friday, July 9, 2010


Today I went to the river and found a frog!! He had a cool blue spot on his head. I caught it and showed it off to everyone. But since I hadn't brought my camera, I had to set it free. So no picture for you :(

Then tonight I went to see Avatar: The Last Airbender. I think I would reccomend it. It was pretty darn epic ... a little bit corny at some bits and I had to laugh during thsoe bits, but the rest of it was quite good. Nice and action packed and only one single five second scene of romance which makes at least 4/5 stars in my books. Romance is BORING.

Oh one more thing to document: I finally finished Heavy Rain. Now I can add it to the not so extensive list of video games I've completed.

Super Mario 64
Kirby 64
Legend of Zelda: The Windwaker
Yoshi's Story (haha)
HEAVY RAIN yayayayay.

Saturday, July 3, 2010


(I made it through 9/12 hours of a LotR extended edition marathon.)

(That is an EXTREMELY long time for me to sit.)

(Stupid, fat Hobbit.)

Spontaneous piercings FTW



I'm on my laptop so the photos aren't really cropped very well, but I got my forward helix done today. We were downtown for the Canada Day Parade and what not and that is where my favourite piercing/tattoo studio is and I decided to go on in and get a new piercing that I had been considering for a long time. I love it, I think it looks so pretty!

And the two best floats were ...

The parade was long and kind of lame and boring after a short while, but I had nothing else to do today and they gave us candy even though we're "way too old." Pff, too old for candy, what a load of bull ...


And the duck that was bigger than him!

And the inchworm I found when we went back home and had a campfire!

Ahahaha, it turned out to be a pretty fun day. It has been SO WINDY these days though. I HATE wind and I wish it weren't windy so it would be just HOT, BEAUTIFUL weather like it's SUPPOSED to be this time of year.

Yesterday was pretty rad too, I went over to my friend Cassie's house and had a couple drinks before we went out to watch the Canada Day fireworks (which were extremely lame this year, or maybe I just missed all the good parts because Cassie had had a couple of drinks extra before I came and didn't quite have her head and I had to keep her out of trouble ...). Haha, oh boy drunk people. A kid came up to me asking for a hug and I was like, "Whoa ... what grade are you in?" Turns out he was in grade ten and he thought it was SO BADASS that he had a tattoo of some girly Chinese lettering on his arm. Well, whatever floats your boat little one.

Monday, June 28, 2010

Well, camping turned out to be a no go ... I wasn't really wanting to go in the first place but didn't feel like fussing about it in my blog because that would be lame, but I have my reasons for deciding in the end to just stay home.

Anyway, I went to my friend Sarah's eighteenth birthday tonight (happy birthday chikie chick!). I met some cool people while eating supper there, fun time. I love meeting people hehe. And I got to ride home in a convertible with one of the new friends I made named Ryan. He has the same last name as me, little weird, but not surprising since my last name is so ridiculously common. He was a pretty cool guy.

The reason I came home so ridiculously early is because they were all going bar-hopping and I'm still the youngin in the group. Sigh ... one more month and then I can finally join them! Sheesh ... Being the last person to reach drinking age is pretty lame ...

So yeah, came home early and ordered some new hair for dread falls since I changed the colour of my hair from pink now. I just got some platinum blonde and then a bunch of different colours to mix in with it. I think the plan for my hair, since I probably need to get a slightly more "normal" hairstyle for working in a salon, is to let it go back to light blonde and just change sections of it crazy colours. Then I will have my blonde falls and I can mix in whatever colour my hair is at the time in with them! I know, I know, I'm so clever, right? So next week I hope it's rainy, so I have an excuse to be inside backcombing and steaming my new hair into dreads.

Also while being bored early in the evening, I did the Wikipedia Hitler Hunt. I think my friend Lincoln made this up, where you start on any page and keep clicking links until you wind up with Hitler. So this is for you, Lincoln, but you probably will never see it. I started with "Tecktonik", then clicked glowsticking > rave > fog machine > glycerol > lipid > lipid signaling > biosynthesis > antibiotic > Ancient Greek > Hellenistic Civilization > Alexander the Great > Polis > Archaic Greece > political philosophy > capital (economics) > leadership > violence > genocide > the Holocaust > Nazi Germany > Adolph Hitler.

And that is what I do when there is nothing to do. Haha, if you have nothing to do, you should do the Wikipedia Hitler Hunt and let's see what you can come up with and how many clicks it takes you to make it to Hitler. :P

Sunday, June 27, 2010

Okay, okay, THIS will probably be my last post before going camping. I just had to document this.

Yes ... I do, in fact, follow Canada's Next Top Model ... and today at work, guess who came in?

Last season's runner up, Linsay Willier! I was working fitting rooms, and she came in with a few dresses to try on. I thought she looked familiar, but couldn't figure out where I knew her from ... I assumed I had maybe just seen her in a hair salon or something, because her hair was well styled and her make-up looked exspensive. Then a little girl came out of the fitting rooms and was like, "Mom, do you think that's actually Linsay?" and her mom was like, "Linsay who?" and the little girl was like, "From Canada's Next Top Model?" and I was like "OMGEE I knew she looked familiar!" Anyway the little girl got a hug from Linsay and it was just pretty cool.

But what is a professional model doing in a wee little redneck town? I suppose we'll never know ...

Saturday, June 26, 2010

I found this picture today and I really like it. It was taken after grad I think, by my friend Callista. It looks really pretty I think.

So anyway, I have been pretty much working this whole time. Not really my favourite way to spend my time, especially since the Panty Pervert stopped coming (our manager had to contact the police about him leaving those dirty sheets, I'm not sure what happened after that). But hey, I'm getting money for it!

This also may be my last entry before I got camping next week, sinc I work all day tomorrow as well. I leave on Monday so ... bye everyone!

Wednesday, June 23, 2010


Oops ... I accidentally turned my hair blue! I was too lazy to take any pictures though ... I guess it looks okay, but I don't really like the colour blue ... I can live with it for now I guess. My hair gets messed up all the time, because I mix my own colours and it's all a trial and error thing. I have yet to come up with the perfect purple colour. The last one was too pink so I added more blue, and now I've added too much blue! Sigh ... I'll try again in a couple weeks I guess.

Today was a much better day than yesterday. I wrote my very last exam EVER this morning, and it was English so it was super easy. Now I have no more school to worry about ever again! Well, except college, but that's different because I'll actually be taking classes I WANT to take.

Then I went for a long roller blade with my brother and sister and got really really really hot and sweaty and that was just GROSS. So me and Emilee and Jackson got out our slip n slide, which seemed to be slippier today than usual, and that cooled us off nicely and was very much fun.

Oh, look at this spider bite I got - it so swollen, in circumfrence it is about the size of a pop can. HUGE, and ITCHY, and PAINFUL! ... but kind of cool, because you can see the two holes where he bit me and I love the way that looks ... like a vampire, heheh.

Unfortunatly it was very hard to get a good picture ... this is the best I got, and you can kind of see the red outline of the swelling and the holes where the little bastard got me. This is what I get for taking the basement bedroom, spiders for friends. But that's okay, because since I was little I have always LOVED bugs of all kinds, and they don't creep me out at all. I don't mind sharing a room with them. :)

The last day of classes ... EVER :D

So, I should have posted this on Thursday but I was lazy so it is a week late. Heheheh.

Here are the sheep that I mentioned!

It's weird, but for some reason there were sheep in out courtyard. We also had goats, miniature horses, and in the office there were baby chickens. None of the students knew why there were animals all over the school, and none of the teachers would tell us either. They weren't there last year, they just showed up this year after Christmas. We are all so confused. But that's not important, because goats and miniature horses are pretty darn cute.

So I didn't go to any classes, but I went to school anyway. Why?


Note: the picture only shows HALF of the slip n slide. So can you blame me for going to school anyway? I had actually totally forgotten about the year end slip n slide that they always did, and was actually at school just to say one last goodbye to everyone, so I was unprepared. But I went down in my clothes anyway, it looked like so much fun and I just couldn't resist. I kind of slid off to the side and fell off though and scraped up my legs to oblivion. Blood everywhere, haha! I forgot to take a picture of that mess though ... oh well, I guarantee you, these battle wounds are wicked. Also, Bryan dumped a water bottle right on top of my head because he's kind of a dink that way :P Remarkably, my hair stayed straight! (Well, there was a teeny bump in the back, but for the most part it was straight!)

After the waterslide me and Joelle went to the mall and hung out, and I FINALLY found a crimping iron which I have been looking for for FOREVER but since crimped hair is 'out' right now, they are impossible to find. I'm so glad I got one now though! :D

Then I went to work. And that was pretty much the end of my amazing day. I love no more school!

Today I wrote my biology exam and then went to work and overall it has been a pretty bad day. The exam was very easy though ... TOO easy ... suspiciously easy ... well, we'll see how it ends up.

Anyway, it's been lame but I need to remember to make a post about my last day of school, which was AMAZING (this is long overdue because the last day of classes was Thursday ...). I went to school but didn't go to class and it was a gorgeous hot day and I got to pet the sheep (yes, there were sheep at our school, as well as goats and miniature horses, and baby chickens in the office; none of the students know why they suddenly started bringing in all these animals but it's pretty cool I guess).

Tomorrow is going to be awesome though I hope, much better than today. I have the day off of work and my very last exam in the morning (English, which is super easy). After my exam I'm going to see if I can convince my family to go to the lake, or I'll just find some friends and go to the river. I also think I should dye my hair tomorrow ... it's turning blonde again! Ahh!

Friday, June 18, 2010

So this is pretty nifty

This doll has brown eyes, purple hair, and she is dressed in sparkles and black lace. Sound familiar? It's pretty much a doppleganger of me, haha! Would you believe me if I told you that even her name is Blythe as well*? Because it is. Me and her have so much in common <3

*comes from a line of dolls called This is Blythe!.


We have our old computer that has been pretty good for the past 8 or 9 years (very long life for a desktop computer hey!). I think we should have gotten a new one a year ago, because this one is struggling very hard not to crash. It's only a matter of time, but my dad refuses to spend the money on a new computer though I think it would be a worthwile investment. Too bad he didn't listen to me, because I was using iTunes fine for one day, then the next I found that it had completely wiped my extensive song library. 6500 songs that I have collected over the past five years, gone. Nowhere to be found. Not in any file on the computer, not in the recycling bin. GONE. It takes a lot to make me mad, but I am PISSED right now. I need a computer wiz to help me, I still have the songs on my iPod but I don't know how to get them back onto the computer. I have about 2000-2500 songs worth of CDs but most of the music was either downloaded or ripped from borrowed CDs so I can't get it back unless there is a way to transfer from iPod to computer, which I can't figure out.

I need this music back, there is a lot of good stuff that I'm going to miss so much. In the meantime I'm scared to add any more CDs in case it erases everything else that is on my iPod.

I have always hated computers, but today I hate them even more. I just want my music :( :( :(

If there is a computer wiz out there, speak up now because I need help :(

Monday, June 14, 2010


So I went to write my English exam ... in the condition I am currently in, I was a little nervous about it and I really hope I did well! At least this was only the essay portion. All I need is a 40% and then I can get the rest of the marks by acing the multiple choice/reading comprehension part. I was feeling a little out of it ... fingers crossed I did alright!

My doctor called today and it's not strep throat that I have ... but I need to keep taking the penicillan just in case, because there may still be some sort of bacterial infection. I'm feeling quite a bit better today though. Hopefully I'll be able to get back to my usual antics by the time school is done (the last day is Thursday, WHOOO!).

Friday, June 11, 2010

So I made it to our family doctor this morning, and she tested me for strep throat. We won't be getting the results until Monday, but she gave me some penicillin to take until then. I'm feeling a bit better today, my stomach is more settled but my throat still hurts a lot and my muscles are soooooore. I'm going to have a nice long soak in the tub now and maybe I'll feel better. Once I'm back to normal I hope I can make my blog more interesting again ... sorry to all my friends if you still bother to read, haha.

Aww it's so hot outside and my brother and dad are out boating. I'm so jealous, I would KILL to go outside right now, I've been trapped inside for so long :(

Swiiiiiine flu?

I'm beginning to wonder if H1N1 is maybe making a comeback and attacking ME. My mom is taking me to the doctor tonight to get me checked out in case this is something I need antibiotics for, because it is becoming clear that this is probably not your common cold. It's been a couple days and I'm only getting worse. I didn't sleep one bit last night, this morning I was up at six throwing up, and I just now started a fever. Gross gross gross.

This is the best part: I have a DIPLOMA exam on MONDAY. I need to get better so I can pass my English class! This is extremely important!! Last semester I got a stomach flu the day before I wrote my social studies exam ... de ja vu much? I get sick at the most inconvenient times ...
