Life must be understood backwards, but we often forget that it also must be lived forwards.

top 5 cartoon dads (via the thought pantry)

top 5 cartoon dads I'm paying a late homage to Father's Day by listing here the top 5 animated dads of all time. Now, there were a lot of other contestants like Papa Smurf, Fred Flinstone and even Bible-thumping Ned Flanders who were considered but just didn't make the cut. But better to be on this boat than the other one – WORST DADS IN ALL OF HISTORY AND FILM! Sorry Jack Torrance, Darth Vader, Homer Simpson, Agamemnon, Victor Frankenstein and the Biblical Abraham … Read More

A Break, That’s Not A Break

So tomorrow I have a PA Day and then Monday is Family day. However, over this four day weekend, I have to study for a business test on Thursday, prepare for a bio presentation and a tech presentation due Tuesday, and look over chapter one and two of Lord of the Flies for a quiz in English on Wednesday. Fun. I hate school.

Tomorrow, I was thinking of going to my old school to volunteer, but I found out that it was their activity day tomorrow… as much fun as I’ve had on activity days there, it’s impossible for me to volunteer there when it’s activity day… *sad*

In craft club (okay, that makes me feel like a loser…) we’re doing weaving, or well a few of us are. I brought mine home, and I think I’m having more fun weaving the yarn back and forth than I am doing anything else at this moment…

Currently: Working on my Bio assignment, to my dismay

Reading: Lord of the Flies by William Golding
Reading: Darklight by Lesley Livingston (It’s so good, but I haven’t been able to finish it yet…)

Listening to: I Want It That Way by Backstreet Boys (Epically old song…)

Blinded

Okay, I have no reason for why that’s today’s title. Though the song is good (Jason Derulo).

So today was a simple, ordinary day. Classes, work, homework, lunch, more classes, work, and homework, and then time to go home. My life is so interesting.

I’m just happy. One more day of this week, then Report Cards on Monday, late-start on Tuesday, and a P.A. Day on Friday, leading into a four day weekend thanks to Family Day.

So I’m actually liking Business, only because it actually has something to do with life. Like the TSX or the company for iPods, or the richest man alive. You get to know these things through watching the news and glancing at the newspaper every now and then. I was happy when I found I was one of the few who knew that Toronto actually has a lacrosse team (who like wins it all every year).

In Bio, it’s okay. The textbook is nice, it has a flower on it (yes, I’m a loser). We did a scavenger hunt today, and I was third done…(first person got a prize(though it probably wasn’t anything good))… oh well.

Lunch… was lunch. Yay!

Tech was… eh. Our teacher is… eh. I think she thinks I ask too many questions. Plus, her assignment, which I really should be doing right now, confuses me, really only because I don’t get it.

Histor-I mean- English was, well, it was as boring as anything. We were supposed to finish a sheet, but we ended up talking more about history than English. It’s like retaking the course! Ah well, so long as I do well, I’m happy. My friend T spent the period half asleep, then he reorganized my pencil case, sharpened his pencil with my exacto-knife, and then played with his watch for the period. However, I really don’t blame him. ‘Fireball’ (my friend’s nickname for him) was like sitting up straight in class, looking like he was paying a lot of attention. The only thing that gave him away, was his closed eyes. He actually fell asleep sitting up straight. I can’t even maintain that position when I’m wide awake! But that was hilarious.

Boys Before Flowers is getting interesting. Domyouji is so stupid though (in a funny way).
‘This place had better have good cake. It needs to satisfy my tum-tum!’
‘Patience is a virtue’ *runs around table three times* (me: what was the point of that?)
‘That’s it Nee-Chan! I feel as if I’ve just been struck by lightning!’ (ouch…)
But he’s so cool~ But I love Rui better, just cause he looks WAY better than Domyouji.

Currently: Doing my tech homework… supposedly…

Never Miss A Moment

A new year
To fix mistakes
To mend what broken
To realize what you have

A time for
Change
Difference
Resolution

A chance at
New friends
New choices
New memories

Forget about the past
Ignore the future
Live in the present
And tresure every moment

Each memory shall be special
Whether you know it now
Or know it fifty years from now
Keep them with you

Never forget
Those who were a part
Of your journey
Since birth

Every friend
Every enemy
Is now a part
Of your own history

Remember
Every
Person
From
Now
‘Til the end of time

It’s a new decade
Full of opportunities
Take them
And never miss a moment

Merry Christmas to all those who celebrate Christmas~~!!

Wow, this is one late entry… or an early one. But since my internal clock is still on Christmas Day, I’ll stick to the late entry~

Christmas is that time of year that you celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. It also means hanging around with family you haven’t seen in a while, and friends who have been lost through life in the past years. It’s the time to just give and receive gifts and eat large meals followed by many desserts~~

Yesterday, my dad’s brother, so my uncle held this big bash which consisted of about thirty people, give or take, and it was way fun. My cousins K, R, and E were there, though, K and R kind of had to be, since it was their house, and then their mom’s side came over as well, so it ended up being, K, R, E, A, N, J, M, B, and me, my brother, and my sister. Lot’s of semi-kids hanging out! Through the whole party, we spent most of our time in K’s room, playing with her iPod Touch, her laptop, her DS, and her guitar. Their second floor is like a large circle, so A, N, E, B and my Bro, Ch, ran around the circle a thousand times, either chasing each other or rolling around K’s excerise ball. At one point, N pissed both my sister and I off, so we chased him around the circle, while Ch, B, and E ducked, covered and screamed, laying themselves out flat on the ground, and since their 8 and younger they weren’t really in the way, and while we chased N, A continuously screamed out “ROADKILL” everytime we jumped over one of them. As odd as that sounds, it was hilarious beyond belief at the time. At another point in the party, I had my camera and flashed the green ‘ready’ light into A’s eyes saying ‘I blind you!’ while he screamed ‘DAMN YOU ARE BLINDING ME’ that was epically funny.

I have to say, A, N, and B are extremely hilarious beyond belief. Everytime I see them, I usually end up laughing non-stop!!

So today was Christmas Day, and like most families, we opened our gifts. I got a ton of stuff, which I’m happy about. Though not spoiled, I usually get a lot on Christmas and on my birthday, so twice a year isn’t bad. I got 8 books, candy, jewellery, materials to make jewellery, a dvd, an mp3, a watch, and a DS game. I’m set for the year, I think. Then, my family went out for lunch with my mom’s parents, and then went to dinner with my dad’s side, again, but it was a smaller crowd, for K and R’s family had begun their trip down to Orlando at five in the morning. It was fun, since my uncle’s house is practically an arcade, with pinball machines, casino games, and regular arcade games, like those with guns and car racing. Everytime I go there, there always seems to be a new game there to play and enjoy~

I want to wish a Merry Christmas to all my friends, and to those who celebrate Christmas, and for those who don’t, I’d like to wish them luck with Boxing day hunting~ =)

Currently: Getting ready for bed.

Christmas Eve!

It’s finally Christmas Eve~

Yesterday, my mother baked up a storm, while I washed, what I think is, every dish in the house. Every time I thought I was finished, she’d bring another thing, or a pile of things, for me to wash. So yesterday, in all, she made cream caramel, oatmeal cookies, breakfast, lunch, dinner, while me and my sister decorated Tuesday’s cookies with a ton of icing. Delicious.

Today, as everyone knows, is Christmas Eve. Yeah! Hehehe~ Tonight, I’m going over to my cousin’s house for the Christmas Family Party. Which is about thirty or so people, my grandparents, my dad and his two brother’s families, totalling 14. Plus my aunt’s family, which includes her parents, and her two brothers and their families, plus my other aunt’s parents and brother and sister. It’s a big house. But seriously, every year, the party is so fun, and it’s great just hanging around with family, and extended family~~

Tomorrow is Christmas, which means PRESENTS~~ and more partying =)

YAY~ *epically hyper today*

Currently: Working on my science laser eye surgery project. Teacher’s really know how to kill the point of a BREAK.

Baking Run Amok

If you were to walk into my kitchen at this very moment, you’d see baking pans everywhere, measuring cups filling the sink, spoons across the counter, and pots filled with unidentifiable substances. Then, somewhere between it all, you’ll find the small products of hard work and big messes.

Today was our little, kind of, baking day. The oven runs 24 hours, and the mixer is on non-stop. I believe we made about 12 batches of shortbread cookies, 5 batches of rugelachs, and 3 batches of …. something snaps… all of which took about 16 hours, a ton of work, and a lot of energy.

However, even through all that baking and dishwashing, I found that baking with my family was fun. Or well, baking while they were watching you. I baked the cookies, my mom, my sister, and myself baked the rugelachs, and my mom baked the snaps, while my dad enjoyed the products.

I guess the holidays ARE about spending time with your family, and also cooking for them, but in the end you can all just sit back, relax, and enjoy the desserts~

Currently: Typing out this story I’ve been working on for a while. Whether it’ll be any good is beyond me.
