I'm still really bad for updating this thing... I haven't learned my lesson over how many years? 6? Maybe longer? o.O Someday I will go back and read all my entries and think about how much of a moron I was when I started this LJ.

So I have an awesome new boyfriend now. :) He is my best friend and has been for a long time, and I was too stupid to every actually pay attention and realize that he had feelings for me... Yeah one of those kinds of things. Like all the romantic comedies I watch and say "How could she not see that he was in love with her?!" and then I go and insert foot in mouth. But now everything is almost perfect, and will be perfect as soon as he is with me, as he is living in Ottawa right now which is still sadly a little bit of a drive from Edmonton.

I have been working all summer, doing an actual job. (oshit) I've been working for Parks & Rec in my town, basically mowing grass and lots of heavy lifting and pretty much doing lots of dirty work to keep the town looking nice but sadly it still looks like shit. At least I am starting off this year with some money to my name, and as much as I complain about this job I love all the people I work with, we get along so well that it actually makes the time there enjoyable. Which is really more than most people can ask for.

Time to finish the mittens I have been knitting for Ryan. <3

Tired, What's New? [Nov. 8th, 2011|05:37 pm]

I am very tired. Clinical is no less draining than it usually is. I am enjoying my N391 clinical though a great deal more than I did my med/surg last year, probably because I have a tutor that I love, who is actually supportive and friendly to us on and off the unit, and because I actually have friends in the same group with me this year. :)

It's incredible how much of a difference just having a couple people that you are good friends with around you during the time on the unit can make. We're only a week and a half into the clinical but already I am so much happier than I was this time in N291.

In addition to selling my soul to clinical, I have been spending way too much money on knitting. Mostly buying yarn to stash. I'll get around to knitting it eventually I'm sure. xD

I'm pretty sure I haven't mentioned on here either than I bought an Xbox 360, and I'm really sorry I didn't buy one earlier, it is so much fun! I think it may be my favourite gaming console that I've ever known. It's also nice to have friends to play with on it. Mostly Scott. But still.

The best thing that's happened recently is that I have a long weekend due to fall midterm break, tomorrow is my last day of clinical this week. Huzzah!

I hate being back in school. I don't think it would even really matter what exactly I was doing in school, I just can't stand the actuality of being in school. It drives me crazy and makes me feel so anxious for some reason. At least everything is half over, only two years left and then I'm free.

Actually this week was pretty good, the group I have for tutorial is pretty awesome, I think it's going to be a fun tutorial. Already have tons of work it seems but that's okay. I am already tired though, already feeling that anxiety that I get knowing clinicals are coming. It's silly isn't it, to feel that nervous about something so far away.

My sister is going to Germany this weekend, pretty exciting. I would like to go to Germany sometime, I think I want to do another Europe trip and visit Paris again, but go farther through Germany and maybe some of Spain or Italy. I would love to visit Italy.

Time for sleep and homework, in no particular order.

Beyond the cut, a few random photos from my awesome trip to California, with some trip details intermingled!

Read more...Collapse )

I'm not going to lie, I really did not want to come home. I love my family and my friends very much, but I just loved Southern California so much that I did not want to leave. I am definitely planning on moving there once I finish school, I'm going to use that idea as incentive for me to keep going and finish this hell of a degree. After I get it, I will be free and I can leave for sunny beaches and mild winters.

It is time for sleep now though I think, tomorrow is my sister's birthday so I shall be very busy.

The location detector is telling me that within the few weeks I was gone that somehow my house moved from Devon to Leduc. This is why I don't leave town. Weird shit goes down.

Anywho, I have returned from my fantastical roadtrip. I am totally exhausted, but in a good way. I'll put up pictures tomorrow if I remember, I just don't have the patience right now to sort through them all and post some good ones. xD It was a very awesome trip though, I am already planning on going back next summer to California, I loved it that much. Beautifully sunny every day and I have always loved the mentality of big city life and the atmosphere. It's just my thing. Busy downloading more Japanese dramas for me and my sister to watch, so I will return tomorrow bearing pictures of mediocre quality. (Just kidding I take awesome pictures.)

My life is rapidly going full circle. [Aug. 2nd, 2011|02:06 am]

 Something about this whole sad-about-losing-boy-life-sucks mood has made me start reading Draco Malfoy/Ginny Weasley fanfiction again... I know, I feel like I should be ashamed. But I'm rapidly realizing why I loved fanfiction and why I loved Harry Potter so much in the first place :P I think it was going to see the last movie on my birthday, that really spurred this on. Was reading all my old favourite stories and it has not only amused me to no end but made me somewhat pensive.

The D/G fanfiction community seems to have really hit it's stride somewhere between 2004 and 2006, it was huge. Since the last book was released it kind of dwindled and slowed down, people stopped updating their works or just moved on. I find it kind of unsettling, to see these unfinished works just sitting there, the same as they were when I read them when I was 14 and the stories haven't been updated or finished. And the authors just aren't interested anymore. All the loose ends, it just makes me sad.

In related news, I was browsing my old Portkey.org account searching for more fanfiction and in my links I listed my blog as my super old Angelfire one. Which I had totally forgot even existed. That I wrote in from when I was 13 til when I started my LJ. I always looked back on those early teenage years thinking I was kind of mature and down to earth, and well spoken. Well, it turns out I was a complete moron, and talked about the most inane things possible.

Not Too Long Now [Jul. 29th, 2011|06:04 pm]

 Not too long til me and Chantelle head to California. I will post pictures here if I can along the way of our journeys. The two of us together with her boyfriend guarantees that there will be some interesting stories for sure. I'm praying for hot sunny weather the whole trip so we can take advantage of all the beach we'll be encountering, as we're driving down the U.S. Route 101. I desperately want to get lost in the sun, sand and water for a few weeks!

Still feeling somewhat depressed and abandoned, but dealing alright. Life still goes on right, no matter what happens right?

My 21st birthday was pretty quiet, but I think it was what I needed really. Parents gave me a new iPod Touch, so now I'll be able to keep up my tech geeking while away.

 Well a lot has happened in the last few months.

This last clinical rotation I did, N291, really beat the shit outta me. I burnt out about halfway through and did not so well, had some instructor issues as well as some other things... Overall not a great hospital experience. But I'm 99% sure that I passed the course so for now I will just say that that phase of my life is behind me and I'd rather not talk about it.

I broke up with Ashton in the middle of February. Over three years down the drain I guess you could say, but I think we both learned a lot and at the moment I'm in a much better place than I was then. Currently I have I suppose what you could call an 'romantic interest' but we'll see what life has to bring, hopefully it brings me and him together. That sounds sappy right?

All I can say is I'm really happy right now.

Passed my 295 clinical woohoo, did some Christmas shopping, bought more yarn (okay just one skein of wool and it was needed!), and watched the lunar eclipse. It was very beautiful, I tried to take a picture on my phone but it just came out looking like a little shiny point of light against a black background. =P

I also slept funny on my wrist and now it's ridiculously painful... I give up, I can't help injuring myself.

Somehow, I actually made it through all the hell to the end of the semester. I have an exam left and that's it, and I'm not worried about that at all.

I am so incredibly relieved, I feel like I can breathe again and enjoy life. I bought new yarn yesterday, nice fancy yarn. Not just boring old acrylic but some real wool, as well as some very nice baby merino wool, and I even splurged on some beautiful mohair that I am excited to knit/crochet with!

Also went out with my family and bought a christmas tree tonight (yay!), can't wait to put it up. I'm going to have to go out and buy decorations now (even more yay!).

Also, tomorrow I am going out for dinner with my friends for Erin's birthday, can't wait to see all my friends again that I haven't seen in ages it feels like. Especially to go out all together, I really can't wait.

Life feels really good again. I am happy.

Holly.
