BIRTHDAY SHOUT OUUUTTT

May 27, 2010 at 8:17 pm (Uncategorized)

Today is my good friend Alexandra’s birthday.

Photo from Alex's facebook (i needed a pic of you hehe)

We met last summer when we were both interns at the Town Crier and Vaughan Today.

Seeing as it was my first official day in the newspaper world I was nervous. Luckily I wasn’t the only intern.

There was about seven of us…yea a lot of interns! And we all became close. We’d have lunch breaks together and walk over to each others cubicles and say hey. So yeah we were pretty close.

Alexandra had worked there before for her co-op so she knew how everything was done. I went to her a lot during the first week because I was still a little timid around the editors. So I’d be like hey….whad up?

Seeing each other every Monday- Friday week for 3 months we became pretty good friends. We took our jobs seriously and worked hard on our stories but at the same time we joked around a lot.

We even went chair racing one morning. (She won)

What’s even more awesome is we’re still good friends today even if we don’t work together.

So look out world forĀ  sexy Greek Goddess Alexandra Christopoulous on the front page and happy birthday pretty lady!!

Interns yeaa! Alex, me and Monica Photo Credit to Alexandra of course:)

Friends Forever

As we go on
We remember
All the times we
Had together
And as our lives change
Come Whatever
We will still be
Friends Forever

How cliche of me but I had to do it!

Sunday May 16th 2010 was my convocation. My parents, brothers, grandma, grandpa and nana all flew out to Fredericton to see me graduate and get my diploma.

It was unbelievable. I couldn’t believe it was actually happening. Four years goes by SO FAST! If I had a time turner with me I would go back in time because truly the four years at St. Thomas University in Freddy Beach were the best ever!!!! Words can’t even begin to describe the awesome memories I’ve made there.

Even though I’m back in Ontario I’m going to miss everyone so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! All my St. Thomas friends have influenced me and made me a better person today so thank you for that:)

And now some pictures of my convocation. Feel free to play Vitamin C’s Graduation song as you look at them:p

Oh computer problems…

May 9, 2010 at 9:51 pm (Uncategorized)

Yesterday I just got my lab top aka Crookshanks back from Future Shop. Crookshanks’s motherboard had to be reset.

Wait-what?

Future Shop you told that me you probably WOULDN’T have to do this unless it came down to worse case scenario…and I guess my labbers had a worse case scenario situation…le sigh:(

I don’t have the best luck with computers but I hope that will change soon:)

Even though I’m starting from scratch, it’s good to have Crookshanks back.

We’ve been through a lot together and by a lot I mean traveling back and forth between New Brunswick and Ontario.

In other news…I had my share of awkward/funny moments today.

As my fam jam and I were leaving my grandma and grandpa’s place I almost tripped down the stairs…SMOOTH.

And while we were in the car my brothers and I got on the topic of Lord of the Rings.

James – I don’t remember Gandalf’s last name

Me- Isn’t it Gandalf the Grey?

Eric- No that’s his title!

Hey in my defense I’ve only seen the LOTR movies! Just saying…
