Its been a while...

It certainly has been a while since I last posted. I just thought I would fill you in on some of the details of my life :D
  • I finally got a hold of the woman from Study Buddy and got myself a position. I am helping out in a Grade One classroom. Not quite what I was looking for but hey beggars can't be choosers right.
  • I have crazy tests next week but I have started studying...EARLY...which is a feat for me so I am quite proud and hopefully I won't be an insane mess Friday of next week
  • I am pumped it is less than a week till my birthday. The freaky thing only ten more years until I am as old as Keith.
  • Speaking of Keith...if you are reading this I saw you driving your truck this morning while I was on the bus was going to wave but you wouldn't have seen me anyways cursed tinted windows (Boooo...)
  • Finally, I am free tonight Friday Sept 30th and I think that if you guys are doing something you should give me a call :D

Getting into you

"Getting Into You"

By Reliant K

When I made up my mind and my heart along with that to live not for myself but yet for God, somebody said...Do you know what you are getting yourself into

When I finally ironed out all of my priorities and asked God to remove the doubt that makes me so unsure of these things I ask myself, I ask myself...Do you know what you are getting yourself into


I'm getting into you because you got to me, in a way words can't describe. I'm getting into you because I've got to be. You're essential to survive. I'm going to love you with my life

When he looked at me and said I kind of view you as a son and for a second our eyes met and I met that with a question...Do you know what you are getting yourself into


I've been a liar and I'll never amount to the kind of person you deserve to worship you. You say you will not dwell on what I did but rather what I do you say I love you and that's what you are getting yourself into


He said, I love you and that's what you are getting yourself into

The Study Buddy program came to Grant MacEwan today to sign up those in the field of Education to help out in classrooms in their area. I was so pumped to do it this year. I had the time and am in a good place this semester to help out. I was so excited because I was trying to get into my old elementary school. Perfect, it is close to home and I know most of the teachers from when I was a student there myself. I can only help out in the afternoons though because I have school until 12:30 ish everyday. I went to talk to one of the teachers this afternoon about helping out in her class and she is my favorite teacher that I have ever had. She said that she wasn't going to need any help in the afternoon because she already had an aide and that her principal hadn't asked her if her class could be down on the list. I am bummed, I was so looking forward to learning from her there is nothing I can do I guess


This post is dedicated to Bethany and brought to you by The Rescuers. Beth, Chrissy and I spent Friday night watching Janelle get kicked off Big Brother 6 (Sad moment) and after Chrissy left Bethany and I spent sometime playing board games. One we happened to play was Disney Monopoly. We played and I bought as much as I could (I am kind of a hog) and one of them happened to be The Rescuers. That square was Bethany FAVORITE square and she enjoyed visiting it so much that she went there over and over again. The only problem was that she was staying in the penthouse of the castle I owned. Good game Bethany and I still remember that you beat me at Racko...Cursed Racko and I love you :D

Child Abuse

I have never been so disgusted with a parent as I was yesterday. I was at work and while I was there another cashier stopped a child who was trying to push a cart of items that were not paid for out of our exit doors. Jeff asked this young boy for a reciept and the young boy who looked petrified said that he didn't have it and his grandmother did. We paged the grandmother over and over and she never came. Finally she did come after leaving the store hoping that her grandson would follow her out and they would make a clean getaway. I just wanted to scream "I cannot believe that you would use a child to steal for you" I think that is worse then the lady actually trying to steal the stuff. The boy was ten years old and looked like he was about to be sick the whole time we had him. I am sure he was scared because we had caught him but I think he knows that what they are making him do is really really wrong. So to make a long story shorter this isn't the first time that the same family has tried to do this at our store. They almost got away with $1300 worth of stuff the last time and when I rang up the cart that they tried to steal last night it was over $1300 dollars again. I wouldn't have minded if they were trying to take food to feed their family...but they stole CRAP nothing that was needed, not essentials, just selfish things. It makes my sad that someone would put a 10 year old boy up to huge theft just because the kid will get in less trouble.

Decisions and Dilemmas

I hate having to make a decision. I am just not good at it. Just ask Ian I pawn every important and unimportant decision on to him. I hate dilemmas because it is a lose/lose situation. I am a diplomatic person and I try to work things out between people and I hate having people feel upset with me or like I have let them down. I have decision to make that even though it may seem minor to some people it is a big deal to me. I have been decideding ever since I found out the DYB is the same weekend as our first FUEL practice which one I felt that I needed to attend more. FUEL was obviously my first choice because I feel like I am truly an important piece to the puzzle at least vocally and DYB is important but I don't really feel that I am a crucial member because lets face it I suck at playing the cornet. Now regardless of what I choose I have let someone down. Some people would be ok with whatever I decide to do because they are cool like that and others have sent me back an email which makes me feel horrible. Man being a responsible adult sucks!
