Well, I think I'm going to have to hang up my blogger's hat. I just don't have that much to talk about anymore. I can still be found on facebook, and with the ability to write 'notes' if I feel the need to update anyone, I'll do it there, and since my readers are all on facebook, it shouldn't be that hard of a change.
One final update: I've graduated. I've also been home for a visit. Now, I'm going to work at North West Geomatics as a reception/shipper, and will write. I hope to get involved in RockPointe Church, I'm still kind of not liking church after being treated so poorly at the last one, but I'll be a little more cautious this time. I'm working on a rewrite for WAYTTF, and will submit that to Janna's pastor as he might want to put that up. I'm also going to start research on a historical play, dealing with the history of Ireland, and possibly one theory of the start of faeries.
Thanks to all that has read this and commented, it's been great. And who knows, my life might suddenly become so exciting I'll have to let everyone know about it. Or, I might have all these crazy deep thoughts. Then I might be back.

Take These Broken Wings

I didn't realize people missed my writing on the blog. Thanks Faith!!!
Well, I've been crazy busy, so this will be short I'm sure. I'm stage managing an Easter Show at Foothills Alliance which will be going up next weekend (obviously), and directing my own show the very next week. So I'm stressed and tired. Mostly tired.

There's transit issues going on in Calgary. The drivers are on a work to rule schedule, so one of my buses in the morning just doesn't run, so I have to find another way to get to work. There is a way, but it's a lot longer and a heck of a lot out of my way. It seems all the city is concerned about is the school kids, but if people aren't getting to work, who's going to pay the taxes that pay for schools up-keep?

But on the upside, I'm going home in exactly one month today!!!!!

Why Don't You Like Me

I went to a Hitmen game last night, and I was sitting in front of a bunch of 10-12 year olds when I realized something. Well, it's not a new realization, but at the game it was more obvious. It was a pretty tame game, but in the third period the Medicine Hat Tigers scored twice and the Hitmen became more desperate. Fights were just under the surface, waiting to erupt. When a fight did occur, people shouted louder than when someone scored (there were a lot of Tiger's fans). It was just like the ancient Romans in their stadiums watching gladiators fighting to the death. We get more satisfaction from a fight than fair play. For all our talk of saying we've become more civilized than those ancient cultures, we're no better; perhaps worse, since we should be. It's sad, really.

I Am Complete

I think I had the worst week ever. I was out of work with the flu for 3 days, my computer crashed and had to have it's hard drive replaced (which took a week), I had my phone lifted from my pocket while on a crowded bus. Oy! So, today, I got my computer back, and it feels so strange. It has none of my special touches. And I can't stop these pop-ups. I miss pop-up blockers!
Oh, and my bus doesn't run tomorrow, so I have to take a cab. Oy.
Well, I'm tired of pop-ups....

Dream Police Come to Me In My Bed

Oy. This machine makes me so frustrated. It continually locks up for no apparent reason. Makes me want to throw it across the room. I don't know what frustrates me more. The fact it's acting like a piece of junk, or how dependant I feel of it.
In other news, I checked out a new church today. It's about a 3 minute bus ride from my house - probably within walking distance if it weren't for the lack of sidewalk on an extreme hill. I really enjoyed it, and perhaps will get more committed in the next few months.
I also am starting a new job on Monday in the NE. I really hope to get a car soon as getting up so early every morning and having evening commitments will really burn me out.
I can't think of anything else that's new with me.

Happy Ever After in the Marketplace

My last day of work at FootHealth Centre was yesterday, and I had my interview at Office Team today. Already I have a placement! Yahoo. The only thing is, it's in the NE. A job is a job, but I really hope it won't always be in the northeast. I'll be in transit for about 80 minutes. Eep.
And that's a wrap

I don't know what to do.

Ever since I started working at FHC, I've been treated poorly by a fellow employee. At first, during the summer, it was so bad, because our shifts did not line up. But once September hit, I was working with this employee all day, being subjected by their snide, underhanded comments - not just about me, but about everyone else working there - without being able to do anything about it. It progressed and has been making me physically sick. It is such a struggle to work a shift with this person without being able to say something; I can't say anything because it'll do no good, and it will cause more problems. I'm sure you all know people like that. Ever since I've given my notice, it has become worse, so much to the extent that I'm throwing up etc. I called in sick today and was feeling a lot better, but I got a call from work and it made all those throw-up feelings return. I want to say something to the manager, but, the two seem to have the kind of relationship that anything I say will be repeated back to this person, and it wouldn't be addressed properly.
I have an interview on the 17th, and I'm worried my manager will say I'm flighty, and I gave up my last week of work because she doesn't know what's going on.
I don't understand how people can be so rude to people, making other's lives miserable. This person seems to thrive on that knowledge.
Should I tell my manager about this co-worker, or just leave it?

I Hear You Calling

I have the flold. Flue/Cold. It sucks.
I also have an interview with OfficeTeam next Wednesday. That's awesome.
I don't have all the cast members I need yet. That's stressful.
Last night the people living upstairs were watching Pirates of The Caribbean. I could pretty much hear it word for word. Vunderbar.

I was thinking of going to Castle Loma when I went home in April, seeing I've never been there. But it's stinking expensive! $16 to get in, and an hourly parking rate of almost $3. The person who built it was rich, and they're still trying to get money, so that's probably out. But there's a nice estate in Oshawa with extensive gardens that I'd like to go see, as well as the Stratford festival. They're putting on King Lear, The Merchant of Venice, Oklahoma! as well as another play I can't remember. I'm going to try to do all the touristy stuff I've never done while I lived in Ontario.

Do not worry about Haru.
