My birthday's here! As of 43 minutes ago, the birthday celebrations officially began, starting with Emily - first one out of the gate with a great big Facebook birthday wish. Then I got an ambush from Lindsay and Natalie who came to give me their presents because they couldn't wait until tomorrow. Where's that willpower, … Continue reading Day 23: Birthday Eve gives way to Birthday!
My mom left for Hong Kong today and it appears she took my good fortune along with her. It's just been one of those days where a lot of little things start adding together to make you want to crawl under the covers, go to sleep and wait for tomorrow to come. There's something weird … Continue reading Day 22: Bon voyage

My current laptop is just giving me way too much trouble, and even though it's going to cost a … Continue reading Day 18: Embracing the dark side
It's official. I have one more week of being 19 and then it's goodbye teenage years! You'd think I'd be more nostalgic, and perhaps I would be, were I not preoccupied with all the schoolwork weighing down on me. Today was supposed to be my relaxing day. No classes, no problem, right? Ha! I wish. … Continue reading Day 17: The final week
