Friday’s Feast #196

When was the last time you had your hair cut/trimmed?
Well, I last cut it in like, January I think. So it’s been about eight months, give or take a few weeks. I hate getting my hair cut…it always seems like I envision something completely different for my hair and it never works our because what I envision isn’t possible for my hair type 😦 But I’m looking to get it cut again…

Name one thing you miss about being a child.
When I was a kid, I lived across the street from my best friend and we both had younger brothers that were the same age, so the four of us would always play together. Our favourite thing to do was either play street hockey (girls versus boys) or play pretend spies…those were the good days. I loved my old neighbourhood cause there were so many kids around, so much going on all the time, and everyone knew everyone. Sometimes everyone would go to the park in my neighbourhood and play a game of soccer or baseball.

Pick one: butter, margarine, olive oil.
Well, it obviously depends on what you’re using it with! I usually cook with olive oil but I eat toast and bake, make omelettes with butter or margarine, depending on what my mom gets.

Main Course
If you could learn another language, which one would you pick, and why?
French and Chinese. I only know conversational Chinese even though I’m Chinese myself; my family is whitewashed to the max and my parents speak English to myself and my younger brothers. I’d like to learn Chinese because it clearly is going to be the dominant language of the future and I feel that not only would it help me become closer with my heritage, but it’d also be a good career and life tool in general. And French because I love the language, it just sounds so beautiful, and it’s the other official language in my country.

Finish this sentence: In 5 years I expect to be…
Graduated from SFU with either an honours degree in Communication or a double major in Communication and Criminology…and hopefully at law school…possibly. Maybe. Who knows. Hahaha.

On another note, thank god it’s Friday. I’ve worked all weekdays of this week at Choices, which I haven’t done since like…well, probably last summer. And it’s been crazy. Though I really love (most of) the people who work there, I’m pretty glad to be leaving…I felt so stuck at that place, and though it was fun while it lasted, I think it’s better for me to focus on school and just having an easy job for now. I work Monday-Thursday next week (28 hours!) as well and then I’m done…Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and then school starts on the 2nd of September. Yikes.

William and I are supposed to go do the Chief tomorrow, here’s to hoping that the weather will hold up. I’ve never done it before but I’ve heard it’s easy from some people and not so easy from others. To be honest, despite the fact that I’m pretty active, I’ve never been much of a hiker, I prefer trips on the water and by water vessel as opposed to getting places with your own two legs. I don’t mind going on day hikes though, those are always nice, and how could you not enjoy it when you live in such a beautiful place like British Columbia? You might as well take advantage of what you’ve got, wouldn’t you agree??

The fat lady was bound and gagged

because when the going gets tough,
the tough step their shit up.

I think I have officially decided that I suck at this blogging business. And here I am, thinking that I’m all techno-savvy and I can’t even manage to adequately update an online journal. I think it might just because I have a lack of things to write about.
