BP Spill causes 467 Endangered Sea Turtles to be killed

July 16, 2010 at 8:01 pm (Uncategorized) (, )

I am shocked. Absolutely shocked.

The British Petroleum spill has been going on since late May/early June. It still hasn’t entirely  been cleaned up. That just goes to show you how big the oil spill really was. Experts say this oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is the largest offshore spill in U.S. history.

It is also one of  leading destroyers of wildlife around and in the Gulf of Mexico.

According to treehugger.com 3,000 birds have been killed or covered in oil and have claimed the lives of at  least 467 endangered sea turtles.

Scary isn’t?

The lives of wildlife around and in the area remains in the balance.

I’m not an American citizen but I still really take this situation to heart. It really hurts that these animals are suffering.

It’s also a serious decline in numbers for the endangered turtle population. Now there even more endangered!

I’d ask each of you to take some time to read about what’s happening with the BP oil spill because it is really taken a toll on wildlife.

Spread the Awareness!

Just another day at Starbucks…

July 15, 2010 at 7:05 pm (Uncategorized) ()

So on Monday, Danielle and I decided to go to Starbucks and catch up for coffee. You know the usual.

Before I left the house my mom stopped me and asked if I could buy some coffee for her.

I said sure and she wrote down on a post note her order lol, cause knowing me I’d get up to the cash and be like uhhhh what was it again?

So Danielle and I enter Starbucks and it’s pretty nice day out so everybody’s buying cold drinks and having a good time.

Woot Woot!

Danielle orders first and then me.

I ask for a grande iced caramel macchiato and just hand over the post it note to the hot starbucks bartista.

He laughs a little and goes to make the coffee for my mom.

I pay for my order and get the coffee.

The bartista and I smile at each other for a while until i turn around and SMACK bump right into someone.

I rock at life..yepp!

I turn beet red and apologize but the man didn’t say anything and just walked straight out the door like he was a man on a mission.

“Ugh some people are such jerks,” comments Danielle.

And I couldn’t agree more.

People really can be jerks sometimes. It sucks.

So dependent on electricity

July 6, 2010 at 1:32 am (Uncategorized) (, , )

It was a typical summer day.

Scorching hot temperature

Watched some One Tree Hill

Went to Starbucks

And hung out with a friend

Then…the power went off…


But there wasn’t even a thunder storm or anything so how could that be?

It was around 4:30 in the afternoon and everybody was home except for Eric.

My mom thought that maybe since everybody was cranking their air conditioners up that it was due to the that…but according to her blackberry (which came in handy) she found out there was a fire at the transformer by Kipling station.

Poor Stephen Harper had to wait an extra hour to have dinner with the Queen. Darn.

I was so bored!

I laid on my bed texting Danielle and Ashley, but even that didn’t last long. I could have read a book or magazine but I wasn’t in the reading mood. I had A LOT of energy and wanted to do something.

So I started to clean my room.

Yes, I was THAT bored that I cleaned my room.

I went through a drawer that had a bunch of my old high school English and History notes in it. I found many interesting things, but the thing that amused me the most was the big pink telephone from Dream Phone.

Oh Dream Phone…that game was played at every sleepover.

So I thought hey…maybe it still works.

And it did!

I let out a girlish giggle and started to dial random numbers, remembering the fact that the numbers started with 555.

I didn’t get very far and didn’t end up finding out who liked me although I really really really hoped it was either Steve or Matt because those were the hot ones;) it amused me for a while and then I thought.

Wow Jackie…you know you’re bored when you decide to play Dream Phone…by yourself…

That was the bad side of the power going out, the good side was good old family bonding.

James brought me a big bowl of Cookies n Cream ice cream which I volunteered to finish up…I didn’t want it to melt okay!

And I had a two hour cleaning session in my room.

So yeah as sad that it is that the power went out…I accomplished a lot.

So next time the lights go out think of the bright side of the situation!
