my dad and the neighbors


It's a regular snow removal party, complete with quad, snow blower, and of course the trusty shovel.

Christmas Eve Eve

The semester is over and now I am home. I don't really have anything to say, but just wanted to put up a new sentence for you to read.
Have a Merry Christmas!

Christmas crafts and group projects

I have been doing some crafting to fill in times when I need to procrastinate from studying for exams and this is what I've come up with:

Also, our group project is FINALLY over and this is how it turned out. The top picture is our presentation board on International Style Architecture complete with hand drawings on black paper (which you can't really see in the picture) and the second picture is a 1/8" scaled model of our building design made of glass, wood veneer and stiff board. I just wanted to show it because I am proud of my group, even though tomorrow we have to go discuss our final mark with our instructor....it's a long story, but to make it short the person who was supposed to grade our group was sick that day, and as a result we got a mark none of us (the group) can handle. My program is full of perfectionists.

this post brought you by the number 3

Things I learned this semester:
1. It's good to ask questions, and pride shouldn't get in the way of that. And the reason to be at school is to learn something, and asking questions goes along with that. Nobody expects you to know everything. Except for the Shoppers Drug Mart customers.
2. Group projects can be fun. But they are more fun when they are finished.
3. Some people I like a whole lot better outside of an academic setting. Human-ness is refreshing. And so is not letting school take over your whole life.

Things that make me laugh on a daily basis:
1. People who whack the walk button at the 14th and 14th intersection. Mainly because they don't read the sign and always cross the street when they pushed the button for the avenue. I usually see this happen 3 to 5 times a day. And sometimes they are the same people day after day.
2. The lady I see running everyday from SAIT at about 7:50 in the morning with a backpack and briefcase. I also wonder where she is going.
3. Heidi

Things that I am thankful for:
1. The end of the semester!
2. I have spectactular friends; which I didn't bank on happening during my Calgary life, but am really glad they are around. (I still like my non-Calgary friends too!!)
3. That there is exactly 6 months minus a day until I get to marry Dan. I love him. And I'm excited for him to be part of my family. I really love my family too.

I would actually like to know what you the reader should be doing right now? As much as I enjoy blogs, I usually think there is something better or my efficient I could be doing with my time - what that is, I am not always sure.
Right now, for example, I should be sleeping. But it's not happening right now.
Maybe I will read some more.
I just started Kite Runner and am already involved in the story. I like when books bring you in right at the beginning, and not 7 chapters later.

Back to the topic: Are you procrastinating right now? If so, what should you be doing?

(Disclaimer: I like when people read my blog, and leave comments! In no way is this post meant to make you stop visiting me online because you have "something better to do.")
