fun facts about yours truly

These fun facts come from Zia at Song Sung Blue.
-Ninjas or pirates and why?
Uh… neither. Though Hook from Once Upon a Time is kinda attractive. It must be his Irish blood 😉

-Who’s your dream concert?
The Fray (who I already saw in concert *faint*), or The All-American Rejects. Or Rend Collective Experiment (again). We have their CD on constant replay in our car.

-What moment do you want to relive?
Visiting George Fox University. I love that place, and the people I met.

-What’s your opinion on emoticons and text words?
Emoticons are fine on occasion, but some people really over-use them…
-What’s your favourite word?
I have no idea. Favourite, maybe, because of the spelling. Or flibbertigibbet. Look it up, I dare you.

-What made you choose your current job?
My current job? Being a student? The law forced me.

-Pet peeve?
People playing with nails, hair, face, etc. I just want to punch them in the face.

-Would you like to know what it would be like to be someone of the opposite sex for one week?
Yeah, it’d be pretty cool.

-What’s your belief system? E
veryone’s equal, I wouldn’t ever get an abortion but I’m (kinda) fine with other people getting one, no alcohol or smoking (for me at least), etc. etc.

-What’s your first memory?
Well seeing as I don’t remember much before… my 14th birthday… probably my Grandma’s house in Slovakia. Most of the stuff I remember is what things look like, for example I remember exactly what her house looks like but I don’t remember actual memories.

-Favourite thing to cook?
DESSERT. Om nom nom. I love frosting cupcakes.

-First thing you notice about people you’re attracted to?
Hair, or clothes.

Until next time, Em 🙂


Overzealous Play Rehearsals

This afternoon, my friend was fetching a camera from my yearbook instructor’s office to take pictures of the school play. This sounds like an easy task, but apparently it wasn’t.

My friend came back into the yearbook room (across campus from the yearbook instructor’s office) limping and proclaiming “I think I twisted my ankle…”

How does one  react to this?

Especially when one’s friend looks like she is smuggling a tangerine into her tights (because of the swelling).

And you know the funniest part?

She twisted her ankle by walking down stairs and stepping on a wrong step. Not exercising, or anything exciting like that. Nope, walking down stairs.

Until next time, Em 🙂

Have you ever wondered what happened on the day you were born?

I once went to the huge library in Vancouver, BC to check out the newspapers they have, just to see what happened on my birthday. I encourage you to do the same, it’s pretty cool!

There is an old nursery rhyme that supposedly tells your future:

Monday’s child is fair of face,
Tuesday’s child is full of grace,
Wednesday’s child is full of woe,
Thursday’s child has far to go.
Friday’s child is loving and giving,
Saturday’s child works hard for a living,
But the child born on the Sabbath Day,
Is fair and wise and good in every way.

I’m not sure if I believe in this kind of stuff, but since I was born on a Wednesday, apparently I am “full of woe”. Sort of accurate.

Also, the number one songs on my birthday were:
In the USA: “Macarena (Bayside Boys Mix)” by Los Del Rio
In the UK: “Breakfast At Tiffanys” by Deep Blue Something (I LOVE THIS SONG. MAYBE IT’S FATE?)

Today I am:
– 16 years, 1 month, 1 day old
– 112 years old in dog years
– 5,876 days old
– Approx. 141,040 hours old
– Approx. 507,745,690 seconds old

Thanks, Jazz, for the great idea!

Until next time, Em 🙂


Election Day!

As you may know, yesterday was Election Day in the US of A.

I guess last “year,” I didn’t realize how crazy the whole thing was. This year, my mom had the TV turned to Election News from 6 until 10. No joke.

Since I don’t want to make this blog all political, I’ll just post some pictures I took in all the excitement!


Celebrating Obama’s reelection

Crossing my fingers!
