    That's good to hear =] And things are rather meh on my end. Work and school are being, well, what you would expect from work and school. That's honestly about it

    Sounds exciting!

    The same professor wants to go for coffee / tea in the café on the first floor of my uOttawa job. She's so kind. Last time I had confronted her in order to explain my concerns about a professor I didn't feel comfortable approaching. She's friends with that professor, so she understands her mannerisms.

    In any case, this time we talked about my French tutoring I do on Tuesdays. I had mentioned to her that my "students" had cancelled today and that I was available to see her earlier in the afternoon, but unfortunately she was busy till 15h00. I explained how the tutoring works - going over grammar first, looking at homework (if applicable), but mostly reading children's books aloud in order to correct pronunciation - and she was thrilled about it. We talked about the one class I'm taking - FLS3761 (she taught me FLS2761, the prerequisite course) - and how unequal the classes are ability-wise now. She says it's such an odd phenomenon: there's no middle anymore (70%). Either the students are 80%+ or under 50%. She's perplexed by it but attributes it to effort and laziness. She says I'm the kind of students all professors want because I do ask so many questions (thereby showing interest in material) and it's obvious that I put in a lot of effort.

    We talked about work, too, and how laziness is seen there. I was saying how perturbing it is that students and workers sometimes accept offers of admission or positions and then waste the opportunity. For every person that does that, another person was rejected and may have taken it more seriously or needed it more (such as a single parent with kids to feed). I explained that there are people I work with that, on the weekends when the full-timers aren't there to supervise, spend time doing their homework and sending private emails on the work computers for hours rather than helping out with the work. They're paid 13$ to do really basic things to begin with, and they twitter away their time on the PC on the weekends when they know they can't do that. I'd feel so much shame knowing I was doing that and someone else was picking up my slack. She liked the wording of "There's no shame left in the world" (said in French, though) because she completely agreed.

    Anyway, had pasta for dinnies. Tomorrow I have school and work! and homework. Tonight is essay writing

    Oooo OK disclosure rules! Got'cha.

    I was reading on Jewish spatial tension in Montreal, QC. Very boring I have to make a resume on it, too. Ugh.

    Had a wonderful chat with a prof today! She's so supportive. Very nice lady

    It's night for you, right KuKu? What did'ja do today?

    Ugh, it did that to me recently too. I lost an RP post I spent an hour typing and had to redo it.

    You're welcome.
    I don't know if new is the word, but all the recreational-level dancers at my studio have a competition this weekend so I've been flat-out with teaching them, especially because the boss keeps adding more events on for my students. I'm still in negotiations with her about a school dance programme I've written too which is taking a lot of time and effort.

    So I guess when you count uni, it's not exactly anything new but I've got a large amount of the same haha! You're really lucky to have the job you have, so many people on here must be completely and utterly envious.

    oo~ and I'm good just in Physical Geography class now! Had to go and see a bijillion people at uOttawa to make sure that I was 1) out of Co-op, 2) set up to receive emails regarding scholarships, and 3) set up to have two exams deferred due to over-lap.

    And four classes today totalling 6h of classes. Have been up since 7:00am zzz at school since then asides the brief moment I had to run home to grab my charger because I forgot it. Took a full hour to get there and back

    Anything neat you're working on at work right now?

    You're pretty interesting and likeable yourself xD

    Very little to be honest since it's not even 7:00am yet. I've got a very busy day of doing nothing ahead of me though which I'm looking forward to after how hectic the rest of the week has been. Yourself?

    Yep; I'm a big fan of Rekordelig! I'll keep my eyes peeled for Aspall's in the future though! (Can't stand Magners!)

    Unfortunately I'm in a similar boat... so with the rise of all these fancy games and MMOs I feel like an old fogey! That nutritional info sounds... damning, really. Kinda glad it's not one of our main takeaway places!

    My Skype is bonkenhig; more than happy to talk there! I'll be cramming for a lot of this weekend but I should make appearances there now and then after that! I miss my university days where I practically lived on Skype, heh.

    Our government loves to pry on our private conversations but doesn't particularly care so much about our actual welfare in terms of our accommodation being mouldy etc!

    I guess I'm glad I haven't ate there yet. It sounds gross. Tho Wetherspoons is mostly oven churned rubbish as well imo. I try to eat PROPERLY lately. I've become something of a mild health freak? Better now than before it's too late.

    I guess I need to open a supermarket in Canada and get some real business going there... Stella... ehhh. Not a big fan. I was out tonight and had a ton of ye olde Strawberry and Lime Koppaberg tho. I wonder what other Swedish drinks are like... I'd be tempted to go there just to have a bit of a dabble into their alcohol tbh.

    And that's fair enough! I'll definitely keep an eye out for the games you work on if you let me know about them. NOT THAT ONE SALE IS GONNA CHANGE THE WORLD but still. Is there anything that would run smoothly on a bad laptop, by any chance...?

So, I sorta missed out on the deadline with the whole.. successes and failures blog competition thing, but I wanted to post something anyway since it's a subject that spoke out to me recently.

Sometimes, success can be a real matter of perspective, and sometimes, it's not always visible. We, as onlookers can point to others and assume that "this person is succeeding" and "this person hasn't really gotten that far" when we really don't know their whole story. We...

Hey! How has everyone been??
I know I haven't been the most active person these past couple of months, but hopefully I'll start getting back into the swing of things now that I've started to find a bit of balance in my day to day!
I see loads of new faces, though I'm unsure how many are name-changes and how many are newbies, so you might have to help me out here!

Anyway, hmm in case you're wondering what I've been up to:

In ways, I feel quite a lot older this time of year- and thinking back, I realize how living on my own has changed me a lot, and even when I think I am mature, I look back again and see how much I mature further.

That being said, I realize that this Christmas, what I really want is the comforting feeling of friends and family around- and just being happy to be there in their presence. Now, this Christmas, I am away from my parents and brother and other family (it's too expensive to...
