So not much has happened really these past few days. Friday night my cousin called me up and took me to Jack Astors for a drink. He also gave me some protein shake powder so that I can game some weight and finally force me to workout. Thank Tony for the stuff, smells just like chocolate milk powder, yummy!

Today I walked the dog a total of 4 times before 2pm. The first was the routine morning walk so he can get rid of his waste. The next one was when he woke up from a nap and we were waiting for people to come look at the house. We waited for a while and it seemed like Simba couldn't hold in his pee any long so I took him out for a quick one. Came back and waited a bit more and finally they came to see the house. Afterwards when they left, the real estate office called and said there was going to be another group coming to see the house in a few minutes. So that meant I had to take Simba out to walk again. This time was a lot longer and Simba started to get irritated and I had to, in the end, carry him home.

Parents and sisters went out this morning to the real estate office to talk about an offer someone put for our house. They signed a conditional contract just in case someone else wants to buy the house. Meh, I don't really care anymore, but the price was kind of low that they offered.

Yeah, this is a short one because it's so early in the day. Oh yeah, going to get my G license on August 8th. Need to start driving some more now, sigh. Such a rush to get this done.

If you thought golf was a leisure sport, think again. I use to play golf a bit. Took some lessons during the summer and went to the driving range a few times. But that was a long time ago and I haven't touched my clubs for quite a while. On Sunday, my cousin called me up in the afternoon to go to the driving range. So he picked me up and off we went to hit some golf balls into a field with boards sticking out of the ground with numbers on them. I took out my driver and began to swing it at the balls. The driver wasn't that short I thought, even though the set I bought years ago was a junior golf set. I forgot a few things about positioning and stuff but my cousin reminded me about them and gave me a few pointers as well. After a while, I wanted to try my other clubs. So I reached into my bag and grabbed the 5 iron. Oh boy, I had forgotten how short I was back then. The club was pretty short for me, but I was still able to hit the balls, kind of anyways. I wasn't hitting the balls that well so my cousin told me to use the 9 iron since it will tell me what I am doing wrong. So I grabbed my 9 iron and got into position. I looked down and I saw how short the club was. It was realllllllllly short. I had to bend down so much, looked like I was a China man sitting on the street, according to my cousin. I took my first swing and it did not look good. I totally missed the ball and the swing felt like I was trying to hit a baseball instead. Now that was quite embarrasing, hahahaha. It was tough, but as well a fun time that I had with my cousin. The only problem left was the pain. I woke up the next morning struggling to get out of bed because my ribs were in pain. I felt the after-effects of golfing. Oh the pain, how I did not expect you to be so painful. If I laugh, cough or sneeze, my ribs would feel like someone punched it. This is the effects of not exercising at all, sigh.

Started to read my biology textbook again. It is so hard to concentrate without the pressures of school breathing over my shoulders. I need an exam to get me going. Even a simple quiz or a test will do probably. I did however come up with a question from reading the textbook.
Q: What happens to the non-kinetocore microtubules that are continuously elongating in mitosis?
If anyone can help me answer this question, then thank you, lol.

Trying to get my driving test appointment for G license done right now. The stupid site is soooooooooo slow and the times I want seem to make the site go bonkers. *waves fist at the site*

So many things happened in just one Friday. In the morning, my parents went out pretty early to meet up with the real estate agent to put an offer down for a home in Unionville. When they got home, we offically owned a new home on 16th Avenue and Woodbine Road. Right after that, we had to subway down to downtown for my sister's convocation. Arrived right on time to see her line-up to walk into the Convocation Hall at UofT St.George. The bad thing was that only my parents got to go in and see the ceremony. So that meant my other sister and I had to wait for them to come back out. So we went to Eaton Centre and ate at Subways for breakfast and went to Dominions to buy flowers for our sister. It wouldn't have been that bad if I was wearing normal clothes and shoes. But nope, I had to wear dress shoes which killed my heels since they were scrapping it every time I took a step. After the ceremony, there was of course pictures to be taken. Then we went home where I slept for a bit and then went out to Magic Wok for dinner. Afterwards, we went to Go For Tea for some bubble tea. Haven't had bubble tea in a while I think. But note to self, don't get taro next time. Too creamy for me :P.

The next day, people came to my house to look around again. Hopefully one of these groups will buy our house. At around 3ish, my cousin came over to pick me up to go to the driving range. It wasn't that bad. I forgot a few things but I could still hit the ball, sometimes. The one thing that I forgot about golf was the pain. Blisters on the hand, pain in the body the next day. Oh boy, I really need more exercise, hahaha.

Wow, it's Wednesday already. Thought it was only Tuesday. Time sure flies by quickly when there is nothing to do other than chores. Hope this doesn't turn into another "chores blog".

Recently downloads a new chinese series that is being shown in Hong Kong called Forensic Heroes. From the name, you can basically guess what it's about. Compared to CSI, this show is no match for it. I shouldn't jump to conclusions so quickly. I've only watched the first episodes so maybe I should give it some more time and another chance to impress me, lol. Since I'm on the topic of t.v. shows, might as well keep going with it. Bleach has been dragging on with filler episodes for way too long. There are fights during these filler episdoes but they aren't even intense enough for me to enjoy it. Naruto has also been using filler episodes for a while now. But at least the Naruto episodes are more interesting with different people showing up, more skills being shown and just more funny than Bleach. Another anime I've been watching is called Wolf's Rain. It's an old show, and not many people know about it, but it's pretty good. (Short summary about the show: Four wolves [which have a human form as well] are after this place called Paradise where wolves rule. They must find this person made from a flower [yeah, it sounds weird, I know] that will bring them to Paradise.)

Someone came to my house today to take a look at it. The real estate agent called at like 12:30pm when I just got back home from driving on the highway for an hour and fifteen minutes telling me that they will be bringing someone over to look at the house at 3 o'clock. So, I relaxed a bit and ate my lunch before starting to run around the house trying to make it cleaner and neater. I was stuffing clothes under things and hiding garbage wherever I can. Right at 3 o'clock, it started to rain and that meant I couldn't take the dog out to walk while the people were looking at the house. So it ended up with my dog and I sitting in the kitchen while the people looked around the house. At around 7:30pm, my mom, sisters and I went to a house in Markham to check it out and see if we would like it or not. After walking around the whole house, I can clearly say that Cindy will love this house. It is completely covered in pink! IF we do buy this house, the colour MUST be changed. The first thing I thought of was how the father could live with this, lol.

Cool, didn't turn this blog into a "chores blog". My mission is done here for now, until the next blog!

Sunday, June 11, 2006

This is going to be a regular routine it seems, probably until I find a job that is (if that is going to happen). Anyways, Saturday was the early celebration of Cindy's birthday. A few people went with her to Centre Island for the day and met up with the rest of us at Joe Baboli's (i think that's how it's spelt) for some fine Italian cuisine. Everyone had fun either making funny conversation or watching the hockey game. Everyone was trying to sign Cindy's card but it was a bit too obvious, just a bit. I was struggling to write the card since she was sitting right in front of me and Brian just didn't care and wrote it on the table. After dinner, we all stood outside in the windy streets of downtown Toronto thinking of what to do next. Spent 30min deciding on what to do since we kept trailing off to something else or pushing around who's house to go to. Also, a homeless lady came to our group and asked from a donation to pay for the down payment of her lamborgini (sp.?). After the discussion, a few of the people went to Old Finch I think to check out the spookiness that goes around there. The others, including me, went home to sleep, lol. Your present from me will come soon Cindy. I just need to go to the mall to do that, which may take awhile.

Finally got up to go to church today. Been missing church for the past 2 weeks I think because I woke up late and missed it. But this time, I remembered to set the alarm clock to wake myself up. Should really get more rest though if I'm going to wake up that early. I was fishing near the end of the sermon, so bad.

Going to get my driving instructor to teach me how to drive on highway tomorrow. Need to learn how to merge properly and not scare my dad. Got to remember to go running with Hiram as well. Anyways, I end here.

Friday, June 09, 2006

Well, I finished my schedule for next year. All I have to say is, I like it! I end almost all days by 3:30pm except for a night lab on Monday for first semester and evening lab on Wednesday for second semester. Fridays are the best though. Two hours of class in first semester and only one hour of class in second semester. If I can get this timetable, I think I'll be jumping for joy!

Anyways, the real estate agent came today to do a "tour" of our house (ie. taking pictures of our place to put on sale). Simba (my mom's dog) was whining the whole time because he couldn't see what was going on. Since I'm on the top of Simba, I wake up every morning now and automatically change and go downstairs and walk him in the morning now. Without giving a thought to anything else. It has become a routine for my dad and I to do that, so sad.

So Fifa has started and everyone is getting all excited about it. I'm not that big of a fan of soccer but I watched the match between Poland and Ecuador and it wasn't that bad. I got excited at a few points during the match-up. So I guess I can see why people get all excited when watching soccer on t.v.

Well, that was my day. Still haven't completed my to do list for the remainder of the summer. Hopefully I'll get to that soon.

Well, since everyone is using blogspot nowadays, I thought of trying it out myself. Time to start talking about my boring life. Summer has been nice this year, not too hot and not too cold, in my point of view. I'm mostly doing chores, wait, let me rephrase that. I am always doing chores since I am a failure at finding a job. So all day I wash clothes (which is just did), iron clothes, wash the washroom, walk the dog, mop the floor, vacuum the house, clean the blind (haven't done that yet but I'm sure to be told to do it soon), cook lunch and prep dinner (but I volunteered to do this since I need to learn how to cook) and other stuff that I don't remember at the moment. Sigh, I desperately need a life, hahahha. Probably should have taken summer school either at Western or at least at another school here in Toronto. I'm just withering away at home infront of the computer/t.v. Hopefully I will find a job soon and get some income for the summer. Or else I would have really wasted another summer and I don't want that to happen again.

Don't really have any other news at the moment. Oh, I just saw my dog rub his bum on the bottom of the sofa. Disgusting but hilarious at the same time. I can't stop laughing at him for that. I'd go into more detail about it but don't think you'd want to read about the motion and the sound he was making, lol.

So what do I do with my spare time (which is a lot) at home? I play games (Thief 2/CS:S), watch tv, download episodes of random anime to watch, create a new blog to waste time, chat on msn with people that either have a job and are using msn web or to people that are just like be but better and wander around the house. I really need to do some exercise and find a job.

List of things I need to do for the rest of the summer:
- get some exercise (i need some more fat, i'm just skin and bones)
- get a job (ie. get some $$)
- get a life (very important)
- learn to cook (so I won't starve during the school year)

This is the end of my first blog on blogspot. Hope my next one won't be as boring. I can't promise anything but I will try to have some fun.
