Today at work it’s just learny learn for me. I’ve been asked to learn how to use MS Project. I was given a “how-to” book and sent to work. So far it’s pretty easy, there are little activities to do that I’m getting through quite quickly. Eventually I should be able to use this without my little handbook (as my boss has already told me that he will have my life if I don’t return it). In any case it’s going alright, I can learn at my own pace and I like that.

So I always thought that given a good excuse I could lose weight/tone up everything pretty easily. This is wrong. I’m planning on going to Florida in April (ie: bikini time!) yet I have no will or want to get in shape. It’s insanely difficult!! Mostly because I’m at the point where eating healthy just isn’t going to cut it… I’m going to have to… EXERCISE! ACK COUGH GASP PUKE. Ya… I’m not so sure that’s going to happen. I’ll try my best though!!

Looks like I may be going to Montreal next weekend, not really sure if I want to. It’s for a conference thing that I should go to but I’m just not in the mood for traveling these days. I hate living out of a suitcase because I swear that’s what my entire life has been to this day. We’ll see what happens.

Now that it’s been over a month I figure it’s time to post an update.

What’s been clogging my head for the past month:

Planning a trip to Florida! Totally can’t wait, I don’t want to jinx it because it seems almost TOO good to be TRUE. I’m planning on going at the end of April just before school starts. Hopefully I won’t come back looking like a tomato but really… there’s no beating it, I will get sun-burnt. So YAY

Charities Commissioner for the Canadian Federation of engineering Students. I got elected to do this for the next year and I know it’s going to be a lot of fun, I just need to get the ball rolling. There’s a lot of work involved wit the bulk of it being writing emails. It’s so fun though, I get to work with some great people and there are a lot of wonderful experiences for me coming up!

Working… working…. Working… It’s boring but I’m getting paid so I shouldn’t complain. I don’t get nearly enough to do and as a result I waste my time doing mundane things such as photocopying and other pointless tasks. I’m so not being challenged.

I really want to go to Cirque de Soleil in Toronto but tickets are $100 and well… realistically I would totally pay this much BUT I don’t know anyone who would come with me. The tickets are quite steep and I’m not sure if the show is even worth that much… I want to see it though!! If only the tickets could just fall from the sky…

Really that’s about it, I’ve been keeping busy knitting, painting, BAKING and the sorts. Mostly baking though because you get results WAY faster.

I’m also in the process of looking for a topic for my workterm report. In reading the English requirements of the report I came to the conclusion that my English grammar skills are the worst. More than awful. Worse than a diaper full of Indian food. I’m so failing the English requirement. Good thing it’s 60% of the mark… yep…

Hoping everyone’s term is going well and to Meredith, glad to hear you are coming back! I will get in touch with you one of these days…
