Well today was pretty much wasted it seems. I didn’t go to bed until almost 2am because last night when my parents got home, we chatted in the living room about life. I was chatting with my mom about dinner plans for the next few days and then my dad about how I want to renovate the living room and other random stuff. I went to bed, woke up this morning at like..8am but felt I didn’t get enough sleep so I rolled around and on-and-off slept til 11am. I got up, I showered, got ready, had lunch with my parents, and then at 3pm, went out with my instructor Moe for driving lessons! It was super exciting and nerve racking too but I did okay! Moe took me to a church parking lot and had me do hand over hand between little pylons and then learning to accelerate and brake smoothly, and then we went on the road! GOD! I WAS DRIVING 80KM!!! I also did lane changing which I still need to practice because I get too excited about lane changing and do it too fast. I also need to practice my turning and actually accelerating through my turns…haha. I’m surprised that I’m not as nervous. It really does help when I have an instructor that’s not afraid and constantly telling me to be careful. He uses small hand gestures to advice me on things and always reminds me to do stuff just incase I’m not doing it. So I lucked out in a good instructor!
Once I got home, I relaxed for a bit, watched some YouTube and American Dad. Amanda and Ivan then made dinner (spaghetti aioli) and I did the dishes for them afterwards. Now a little more YouTube and then get ready for bed! Oh, we also spent a little time looking at cars. CAR SHOPPING IN MY NEAR FUTURE! SO EXCITED! Work tomorrow and then more driving! Yaaay!
Oh, and this happened. Ivan and I both changed and both wore blue jeans and a dark grey t-shirt.
I went to be fairly early last night after throwing a fit because the internet wasn’t working. I slept for a good 10 hours though so that was super nice. It was definitely a bad idea to leave my curtains opened though… so bright. So I looked at the carnage of my room and the stuff that has been thrown around. I place everything back in it’s spot before leaving my room. My parents has left to go do some groceries shopping before work and Ivan left for work already. I listened to some music while showering and then had breakfast and then finished getting ready for work.
Caught the bus and read some World War Z and got to work. I wasn’t in a good mood and it was obvious to James because I was just kind of dazed and not really responding to anything he does or say. I warmed up a little bit after a while and the day got a bit better. Our car wash is broken which kind of sucks and won’t be fix until MAYBE tomorrow. My parents came in with lunch and we said a few words and they left.
Nancy got to work, we changed over, I got majority of my paper work done before serving a few customers because it was busy. I finished that up, ate my lunch, and then the rest of my day. I changed 6/8 garbage, did a bit of sweeping, did the milk order, and serving customers here and there. While doing the milk order, one of the 4L bags was leaking! BOOURNS! I had to clean that up and it was gross. Paper towel just doesn’t do the job (especially the crappy brown paper towel…) so I had to use a rag and then ring it out in the garbage. Barf. Thankfully I caught it early and it wasn’t just sitting there. Got all that done and I even had some time to sweep and clean up the diesel pump area a bit. Nancy decided to get gas today because of the weekend promotion ($20 in fuel, $10 in store, 25 bonus AirMiles) and when she went to park her van, she honks and waves bye to me haha. When she came in, I told her I think I got a drive off and we laugh over it. I really like working with Nancy because she likes to joke around too.
Ivan came and got me from work and we got dinner together. We went to Wendy’s and decided to be fat. We got food, came home, had food, and went our separate ways. I had a quick shower and now catching up on some YouTube and Tapped Out. Tomorrow…day off, lobster lunch, and my first in-car lesson! I’m nervous but I think I’ll do okay. Cross my fingers. Tune in tomorrow! I’m gonna have some ice cream, maybe watch the last few episodes of Dexter, and then bread.
Yesterday’s post due to Tumblr/Internet fail.
Short day today. James called my house this morning just before 8:30 to ask me to come to work for 10.6 instead of 12-8. Sure. Fine. But it was no good because I woke up at 4:30am because one of my plugs fell out and I heard it hit the wall as I turned so I was awake from that and decided to go looking for it. I get a stick, go poking around for it after fashioning some tape on the end of the stick, lose grip on the stick, and now it’s in the abyss of that small gap between the wall and the bed frame. I get out of bed, pull the drawers out from my bed, pull my bed frame away, found my stick, found a hair tie, no plug. I had to move my mattress to find it has slipped under my mattress and between the bed slates. Ugh. Move everything back and get back into bed 30 minutes later. So I didn’t really sleep, it was a lot of on and off sleeping and almost falling into REM but never actually. I was so close and then James called. Get up, shower, changed, off to work.
It was inspection day …. yay me. Dan, Sam, and Celine show up. I’ve seen Celine multiple times now so it’s no big deal other than making sure I behave. Apparently I got a mystery shopper and got 100%! Yay me! She also took a picture of me for some reason…she joked that it would be an international magazine. They left, worked went on, Nancy got to work, chatted, life. I also had some guy tell me today that our signs were confusing. He went to buy some chocolate and he thought it was 2/3.19… All our signs have pictures for a reason.
I had to rush to get everything I needed to get done in the 3 hours. Pepsi game around 5pm and I got it all done in like 15-20 minutes. I over estimated the amount that was there. Ivan and Amanda came and got me and we had to go to Garage so Amanda could get a bikini. Then Wal-Mart to grab a few random things like two tubs of ice cream… because I really need that in my life. We came home, I made KD for dinner, had an ice cream sandwich for dessert. YouTube, Pinterest, Tapped Out, now Tumblr and my internet isn’t working….
Blaaaaaah. Wednesdays! Woke up, got ready for work, went to work, and worked. The first few hours weren’t too bad, they surprisingly flew by until it came to the point where TIM couldn’t make it to work because he did something to his neck… (likely story) so James was looking to find a replacement and with no one to take the bait, James asked me. He wanted me to go home (it was 10am) and come back at 3pm to work til 11pm. So I just OFFERED to work straight to 11pm because I didn’t want to go home, sit around for 5 hours and then come back to work. So that was the deal at first. Then change of plan! Sam sent a text to Sam Walker to ask if he would work and Sam Walker being a money whore, he said yes haha. So Sam is the hero of the day for coming in at 5pm to work and allowing me to leave at 7pm today! So still, an 11 hour work day.
Once we got closer 3pm, it got busier and picked up and then it died for a bit and then it picked up again when Sam got there. I shifted off, he shifted on, I did my paper work, and got straight to work! I had 2 hours to get stuff done sooo… check garbage, do garbage, fill barrel with ice, empty barrel of water, replenish squeegee buckets, refill cups, clean around the store a bit, and then my last bit was spent cleaning windows on the inside. Holy moly was that a task and a half. It wasn’t so bad at first because it was just me on a ladder, stepping all over the counter and cleaning. But then I had to move things and oh god, moving things. I had to move all the pop but I did it the lazy way and just pushed them out of the way haphazardly. I got lazy and was just like “Just get it done and moved back so it looks kind of normal” and I did.
Got all that done in two hours, was picked up, went to Starbucks for a TREAT because I deserve it (frappuccino and cookie) and came home. At home, Ivan and Amanda treated me to a sampler of what they made and it wasn’t bad. It was pretty much kapow chicken/shrimp from restaurants. It wasn’t bad! Afterwards, I had a quick shower and I tried that citrus scrub and it does not smell good…. like it smells like salt and olive oil. I need to try something else. BUT it does work! Sea salt, it’s gonna take dead skin off. Since then, I’ve been sitting around, YouTube, Pinterest, Tapped Out, relaxing, what not. Taking it easy peasy. Two more days and then a day off, two days on, and then on and off. Boourns. Yeah, that was pretty much my day!
Here was today’s lovely sunset.
TUNE IN TOMORROW!
Another day of a lot of sleeping in and it felt soooo good. I finally woke up, went downstairs to chat with my parents for a bit, and then after they went to work, I then decided to get ready because I wanted to go out little later. So I shower, I get out of the shower, and then the doorbell rings and who the hell, it’s Amanda. She just did her first driving lesson and came right on over. I finished getting ready and headed out the door. It was a bit rainy today but nothing to damper my mood and trip. So I get off the bus, wander over to my other bus stop and I felt so cool with my red jacket because I’m pretty sure I was the brightest one walking around haha. While waiting on a corner, I made contact with a hottie on the opposite corner from me. So while standing around, jamming to my tunes, he shows up! Still good looking. I catch the bus, get to UWO, moved because a mom and son comes on the bus, and get to the mall!
Walking walking away, and the good looking guy practically took the same route I did but then I lost him while getting money at the ATM. I went to Shoppers to look at some moisturizer with SPF because I saw that the Clinique one has a pretty good rating but it’s slightly tinted, not a fan. I then caught Mister Good Looking in Rogers and then he caught me at Fido. I didn’t say anything to him but….just life. I chatted with Garrett for awhile while paying for my bills and he got an S4 but doesn’t like it, boourns! Not like I’m a fan of it so I see him probably going to the iPhone 5 maybe. I then go to Target, wander around for a bit, back out, to L’Occitane to get the moisturizer with the SPF. I went with L’Occtaine because I already have a moisturizer from them and I like the texture, the scent, and it got pretty good reviews too! Little more pricey than the Clinique one but less than the Lancome one. I then end up at Bath and Body Works of course because I was notified about the new scent! So I went in, looking around for it, didn’t find it so I asked the sales associate on the floor and she told me they HAD it but it wasn’t on display yet. So she asked her manager if she could sell it to me and she said yes! Yaaay! So I did the Buy 2 Get 1, I got another bottle of Fresh Picked and it’s TANGERINE! Smells so nice. I also got a bottle of Hand Sanitizer for my desk. I then called my mom and she was gonna be awhile so I wander around Forever 21 for a bit and bought two little moustache hair clips! They’re super cute!
My parents picked me up from the mall and we headed home. I then had some early dinner and it was so lovely! My mom helped me make my dinner look all nice and it was the most adorable thing ever.
Some veggies, some eggs, some pork, om nom nom. I then….what did I do… I Pinterest, YouTube, other stuff, what nots. I also made the sea salt, olive oil, lemon concoction for a body scrub and so far, so good. You can find it HERE! I made some tweaks but what they suggest is pretty good. I suggest half a lemon though. I then tagged along with Amanda and Ivan to Loblaw to grab a few things and I got myself these little fruit pie pastry things and they’re sooo good. I could eat them all since I’m such a fat kid… I then had some chips and dip, then came upstairs, freshened up, YouTube, This, and ready for bread! TUNE IN TOMORROW!
If I had to pick a band to listen to during the zombie apocalypse, it would be In Fear and Faith. I woke up this morning and it was freezing! I rolled around in bed for a while and watched a bit of TV before getting up and seeing my parents before work. We chat for a while and they head off to work. I came back upstairs to click around on the iPad for a bit and then got ready for the day. Finally a Monday off where I can go back to my Monday routine of In Fear and Faith and pampering. Good start. After my shower, I had to cut open a few large bottles of shampoo and empty them into a smaller bottles. Seriously, best idea ever because my goodness, depending on the liquid, that stuff stays at the bottom forever and you lose out on a lot of product. Just saying. Learned that from Nicole! So did that, then I finished getting ready. I actually rushed a bit because Sarah called and wanted to come over so I could look over an e-mail she was sending out to a future-possible-employer. She comes over, I look over the content, edit it a bit, talk about it with her and about work and stuff. I then call mom to see if she was on her way home and then we leave to meet her at Wonder Sushi for lunch!
Lunch with Cindy, Sarah, Stanley, Mom, and myself. Lunch was pretty good since everything came out quickly and it wasn’t super busy or anything. Throughout lunch, my mom and I picked on Cindy haha. She just makes it so easy. Jokingly we pick on her. Conversation was good and yeah, good lunch! After lunch, mom and I go over to the Hyde Park plaza where I went to Trade Secrets to pick up some Nail Envy because I’m running out on mine. Seriously, this stuff is a manicure essential! Since I’ve been using it as a base coat, my nails are so nice! Strong, don’t break, good colour, just good! It’s quite expensive but worth every penny. I even wear this when my nails are “bare”.
We then went to Wal-Mart for a bit and wandered around and chatted about life stuff. We then came home where I helped my mom load some rice into the car and then she left again to go back to work. I spent the rest of my day catching up on some YouTube, Pinterest, Netflix a bit, and TV in general. I finally caught up on Bates Motel and it’s the season finale next week! I’M EXCITED! And super sad that it will be over soon. Schmer. I’ve also been trying to plan what to do tomorrow with my life. I do need to pay a visit to the mall to pay my phone bills, buy some SPF moisturizer (my face is so much darker than the rest of me), and yeah. Just be out and get out of the house. We will see. Tune in tomoorroooww
Happy Mother’s Day! This is going to take me awhile to type all this because I just did my nails awhile ago. So I woke up, got ready, gosh was it cold outside, got dressed, and headed out the door with dad to Shell. I had to throw something out and while out there, I got some gas for Ivan’s car. I went inside to see Anthony and chat with him for a bit and getting some chocolate and head to driver’s ed! Today is the last day so that is a good thing! Back to work next week, schmeeeer. Oh yeah, it was cold as heck out today too! Get to class, we work on our booklets, and then we had to prep our presentation. We pretty much just talked about how we would say whatever and just make sure we say we are all Leaf’s fans (Puneet is a Leaf’s fan), or say we’re on drugs and go sit down…haha. I also feel terrible and so stupid for getting the Royann’s name completely wrong while she was saying it hahaha! Felt so stupid! But she forgave me… I think haha. First presentation, they did a bad job and Puneet was not happy about it because they kept giggling and laughing. Everyone then smartened up. We went third and it went well! Class went well as well and we talked about insurance and asked a bunch of questions and what not. It was generally a good class. Lunch, I went with Amanda to get Subway and came back to eat. During lunch, Murray, Jordan, Abigaille, and I all nerd out a bit about Tapped Out. Class continued and there was more talk about insurance and about a bunch of other stuff that was informative. We also filled out a survey about the class and we now all know there is a huge lack of games!!! We are all very disappointed (jokingly but half serious). After our final text, it was over! I guess I was just super lucky that I had some friends and good people in my class and an awesome instructor.
After class, we head outside and my god, still cold…and then it started to snow!! THE HECK! We waited for Ivan, we were picked up, and we head over to SuperStore to pick up some dinner, then Forest of Flowers for Amanda, then Home Sense to return some tongs, then Goodwill to donate some clothes and what not! Productive day I would say. I’m not too happy that my mom picked up a jacket that I wanted to donate….. I spent the rest of my day doing my toe nails and finger nails and watching some Dexter and some TV. I had my salad and it was good! I got a Cobb salad and my god, it was like $5 something! But sooooo good. So I painted my little toes and fingers now they look nice and they clash…haha. Got I Eat Mainely Lobster on my hands and Blue My Mind on my toes! They look goooooood. Ugh, yeah, haven’t done much at all today other than that.
Oh! One thing! Yesterday, that sweater I got, it matches perfectly with my coat, my iPad Case, and my 3DSXL!
Pantone, sponsor me already. Or I just love this colour and don’t have enough of it in my life. I should find this for my nails… Okay, I’m sleepy. I’m gonna crawl into bed, watchin some movie, then bread. Tune in tomorrow!
TODAY! I woke up, had showered, and just slowly got ready and what not. I made some bad choices in clothing today because it got chilly and I wish I was wearing pants. So I got breakfast at McDonalds and then headed to Drivers Ed. Again, it went by pretty quickly, I remember parts of it being funny as we talked and what not. Abigaille stayed behind for lunch so Marcus, Amanda, Jeff and I went to Pizza Pizza. Well more so we invaded Jeff’s space at Pizza Pizza. While eating Marcus made the perfect statement for the way Amanda eats “Look at the battlefield of food that didn’t make it to your mouth!” So good! Or at least something similar to that which made it funny. After lunch, we walked back and my god I think it got chillier. It’s not okay for that in MAY! COME ON NOW MOTHER NATURE! The rest of class was good, we worked on our booklets a lot more.
After class, Ivan got us and we went to Whiteoaks to do some shopping! I tried my hardest to not shop and I did a pretty good choice I think. I DID get an awesome sweater though for a really good deal! It was only $10.25 originally at $44.50! Definitely a sweater that I would have easily paid full price for. We wandered around as Amanda and Ivan did more shopping. Amanda got an umbrella and some stuff at Sephora, Ivan got a nice pair of shorts at Gap.
After Whiteoaks, we went to FIVE GUYS! FINALLY! I’ve been waiting SO long to go there! It was such a good choice! We of course walked the wrong way (I noticed it but went anyways like a sheep) and we ordered. After everything, my meal alone was almost $15 bucks! I think it’s totally worth it though…. Bacon Cheeseburger, Cajun Fries, Drink. Om nom nom! So good! I need that more in my life.
After, I felt like something cold and sweet because my mouth was really dry and hot. We went over to Menchies where I got myself some creme brulee froyo with cheesecake chunks and caramel ontop!
I also got their rewards card, a sticker, and kept that cute spoon. Afterwards, we went over to Tag since they were having a closing sale. I ended up buying A LOT of stuff! I got a pair of leggings for $5, I got 2 pairs of tongs, 4 pot holders, a cutting board, shower curtain, a honey spoon, and this AWESOME bench! My total came to just under $105 but fully worth it! Majority of that stuff went towards mom’s mother’s day present and the bench was all for me. It’s gonna look really nice once I paint the living room and redecorate it.
We then come home, bring everything in, and we start talking about cleaning things up and we just DO IT! We empty our front door closet out of all it’s shoes and short through them and decide what goes and what stays. We threw out a lot of old shoes, I stored away most of my other shoes, and yeah! It’s a lot cleaner now! Or so I think…. We then sat around for a bit, watched some TV, and yeah.
We all came upstairs, I organized some stuff, Amanda and I worked on our booklets together, now I’m frantically trying to get all this done and GO TO BREAD! TUNE IN TOMORROW!
Well shit, I missed a day! How did I miss it?! GAAAAH! I MUST DO THIS AS A SHORT FORM!
- Woke up, got ready, had breakfast, went to work
- Did the usual of serving customers during the first part
- Second part, ate lunch, worked.
- WORK WAS SO SLOW! I did a bunch of stuff around the store and tried to make the day go by faster
- After work, Ivan got me, we came home, I watched some YouTube videos, Facebook stuff
- I may have fixed my nails so they didn’t look weird because I completely missed one before I went to work (just a clear coat)
- Worked on my Driver’s Ed book a bit
- Chatted with my parents, went to bed.
BACK TO TODAY!!!
Before I even start my day, start yours with this link of unexplainable pictures of animals! I haven’t laughed so hard in so long that this really brightened up the rest of my night.
This morning started off with a way earlier morning then I was expecting since I went to bed so early. I was up by 7:30! So I rolled around in bed and read some random articles on the internet and then when I finally decided to get up from bed, someone took over the bathroom so I had to wait my turn. So I showered and then before breakfast, I called Wards to find out who my instructor was going to be! So I have his number and I just need to call him in the next few days. (Probably ASAP…) I then had breakfast and got ready for work (also watched an episode of Dexter). I caught the bus to work, read more World War Z. At work, it was the usual. Customers, wandering around like I knew what I was doing, and then one of our old regular customer who moved out west is BACK! It was nice to see her because she’s such a kind soul and a lovely lady. She came to say hi to us first to see when Nancy was working and came back later. I texted Coop De Jour for a bit. He was with his mommy buying an air conditioner for his place. He should probably just sweat it out and lose that beer gut…hahaha. I only half joke. I also expect to see him this summer or I will find him and kill him…. 100% kidding on the killing. Lunch was brought to me but I didn’t eat it til almost 3:30 because when Jen came back to see Nancy, I had to take over her till so they (including James) could all chat. Schmer. So after Jen left, I moved on to doing a bunch of other stuff. I did magazines, I did some garbage stuff, swept, clean, what nots. I also got the cooler done pretty quickly to my surprise. Today was generally a good day, I was in a pretty good mood surprisingly. It helped that I worked with Nancy because I get to joke around with her and stuff.
After work, Ivan and Amanda picked me up, we chatted for a bit when we got home, Ivan and I made fun of Amanda’s ancient instructor who asked where she lived and he couldn’t just googlemaps it or something, no no. He probably has a map out, using that compass thing to map out how to get there, typing along on his typewriter…haha. I had a quick shower, caught up on YouTube, cleaned off my nails because I felt them being super weak, and now…probably bread. Tune in tomorrow!
