weekend update.  
Friday

Was super glad to hand in my last mid term essay on Friday, signifying the end to the temporary lock down I made myself take in order to do well on my tests and such. I think it worked cause I'm pretty sure I did well. I got my Anthro mid term back on Friday and got 48/50 :D most of which were part marks taken off certain questions.

After school on Friday I came home and hung out upstairs with Matty, Gabby and my aunt until it was time to get ready to head out to meet up with Ryan and Milena. My aunts and cousins are always fun to be around. It's going to be really weird when I don't live with them and it's going to make me really sad because then the kids will seem to have grown up so fast as every time I see them, it'll feel like so much time has passed.

I got to Main a bit early so I popped into Pulp Fiction and succumbed to picking up The New Avengers, The Colour of Magic, and Great Expectations.

Met up with Ryan and Milena at The Foundation and we had some yummy food while catching up. I love their chick pea dishes, and was too full to have sugar pie.

We took the bus down and were walking toward Oak to catch the second bus, when we decide to call Mihai cause we knew he wanted to see the play but wasn't sure if he would make it there in time. Long and behold it turns out he is on the bus that was about to pass us the time we called up (spooky!) and he got off and connected up with us.

When we were about to cross the street to the bus shelter, we see our bus take off, much to our despair. So we wait for the next one and are about 15-20 minutes late getting into the theatre, but the ticket ladies were really nice and we took our seats near the back (still a great view).

The play was really good, and Sarah S (from MEC) was so good and hilarious. She played a stubborn Jewish maid and had a thick accent. The murderer was totally not someone I had thought would have been the murderer! haha so that was a good twist there.

Afterwards we got out and waited at the bus stop in the cold for a while, then realized we should actually be on the other side of the street haha and we walked back up past the Metro Theatre and I saw Sarah S in the lobby and went in to say hi to her. She was all excited and gave me a big hug and ran out to say thanks to the others for coming to see the show. She's really great and so much fun.

Was a good night, and was glad I got to see those folks cause I haven't seen'em in a while :)

Saturday

Had work from 12:00 - 6:30, and it was a usual Saturday. As I was going up to start my shift I pass by an aisle and Kristen gets my attention (apparently I was walking robotically up to cash haha) and we chatted for a bit. She was letting me know that she has a project idea to start a Reiki circle where healers in the community and her students that want to take part, can give treatments to clients either for free or by donation regularly. She's looking into finding a space to do it and asking people if they want to get involved. I think it's a great idea and told her I'd totally be into that. It's a great way to create a community, help those who might not be able to afford treatments, and to practise my own Reiki skills...a total win-win situation.

Was going to head up to Commercial with Sam and after our shift we used his make up to bloodify ourselves up and such. The looks we got on the super crowded bus was awesome haha

Got to the station and called Ann cause they said they would be at Broadway and Commercial to meet me. I tell her where I am at the intersection and she's like "Oh! I can see you! Can you see meeee?" and I'm look across and am like..."no?" THEN haha I see the big white blob waving at me and I'm like "OH! HAHAHA YES I DO!!"

They had gotten sheets from value village and brought scissors to cut two holes for eyes for us to wear. Kev and Angie were there as well. Said goodbyes to Sam who continued on ahead to meet up with some of his friends and got some texts from Kristen who was also there letting me know where some cool things were happening and where she was at the time, but the timing was a little off and I didn't get to meet up with her.

We also met up with Bryan, and Karston and Mike (the latter two go to Emily Carr with Ann). We were a cool group of sheeted ghosts haha After admiring all the crazy awesome costumes, and eating some samosas, we headed to the park to see the Pyro show and at first couldn't see well, so Ann, Karston, Mike and I climbed up on the roof of that shed where a couple other people were and had a good view but the show ended after a couple minutes anyway. Security came and haha gosh, Ann and them were running back and forth to the opposite side of the roof in attempt to not be spotted, but of course the security people keep circling the shed telling us to get down, so we finally do.

There was a pause in the show, and the others were still by the fence so by the time the finale fire show with the band started we had perfect positions. I got a call from Cam and went out to the road to meet up with him and saw Stacey, Cale, and his cousin. Talked with them for a bit and then was going to meet them after the pyro show was over.

Fire always amazes me and pyro performers are so crazy awesome and are hawt (literally, too). Watching them makes me want to learn cause they look so crazy cool.

Afterwards we walked back up the street and I said hellos to some of the other chapters peeps who were also there and said goodbyes and hugs. I like making people crouch down to hug me haha

We made our way back, seeing some awesssomee costumes. Lego Indianian Jones! A group of peeps themed up to be a barcode and this girl jumps out of nowhere with her red bike light and leaps in front of them and "scans" them with her red light hahaha super awesome. Another guy was an airplane everything...I didn't bring my camera but Ann did and I asked her to send me her pics when she gets the chance.

We parted ways at the skytrain, Ann, Karston, Mike, and I headed downtown to Robson to get bubble tea and just wandered around Granville. Ended up walking all the way down to the bridge and then parted ways with the boys and Ann came back to my place.

She stayed for a while and we talked lots about random things and I was able to give her stuff I got for her during my trips in the summer (finally!) and she borrowed a couple graphic novels. Lots of talk about love lives and lack of love lives haha oh and I also showed her the stolen pay phone box that someone brought near the skytrain tracks near my house and smashed. She's considering taking it to use for an art piece, but it's so heavy haha she left around 1ish

Was a lot of fun, and was really cool to see everyone. Seemed like a lot more people I knew came out that night compared to last year. Or maybe it just means my network of cool people to know has expanded, which is a good thing, I'm sure.

Sunday

Woke up and practised driving as we went to breakfast and did a few errands. We came back to the house and then I went with my dad to learn how to ride the electric scooter.

Pretty fun, actually. We went to the elementary school near our house and my dad had little pylons and set up a course similar to what he had to go through for his motorcycle riding test.

Did that for a while, improving as time went on. My dad said that it's probably a lot easier for me than Ashley cause I ride my bike and know how to shift my weight, etc.

Am glad that I am learning to ride a scooter cause I'd rather be on a scooter than a car.

We headed back home and then went back out to the David Copperfield show at The Centre across from Central Library. The show was good. David Copperfield is obviously a lot older now, and my mom was commenting on how short he was compared to her expectations haha

Some cool tricks, but of course we were nit picking and trying to reveal how he did certain illusions. I will give him props for that crazy car one that he did. He made the car appear out of nowhere on these columns where people were standing with thick ropes all around and people were underneath holding onto the columns...jeebus. His sarcasm and jokes were good, as well haha

Anyways, am back home now, also finished reading The New Avengers - so good, art is so so so good...
