Anxious, nervous, scared, but so excited.

The whirlwind of emotions I’m feeling at my upcoming trip.

A while ago I was accepted into the Explore Quebec program. This program is government-funded with the mission to educate more Canadians to become more fluent or at least more comfortable with French.

I am so excited to be able to partake in this program, I am so thankful for this opportunity! At the same time I’m nearly nauseated with a nervous anxiety. I’m going to be staying with a local family rather than living in a university residence. It will be even more of an immersion into a french-fuelled lifestyle. Which is fantastic, I hope they will like me.

Did I mention that English is prohibited? Its a good thing to restrict use of English to release the reliance of it and push for an intense development in French. I just hope I can get by. I’ve got a sinking suspicion that I’m not going to be speaking a lot (like I the chatterbox that I normally am).

All that said. I am nearly in nirvana. I am so content with life. I’m always a pretty happy person but often I get bursts of happiness and a sense of such thankfulness for my life. Right now, as I am typing these words, I am smiling… truly smiling from within. I can feel the beginning of an adventure emerging and I am ready to tackle it head-on. It is going to be a little scary, a lot of stumbling is going to happen, but it will be fantastic.

Life. I’m ready for you.

That dreaded ‘E’ word.


Fun. Joy. No?


Dread. Fear. Lots of anxiety.

The time has come again, next week will be the start of a torture that occurs twice a year lasting for about 2 weeks. For this round my freedom will take rein on the 25th… at precisely noon.

It will taste so. damn. sweet.

Pray for me?

Finished product. 🙂

I have to say, my tastebuds are plenty pleased.

I think this makes me feel much better about something I did (or rather didn’t do) this past friday. I had baked all the goodies for a bake sale, which included several types of cupcakes (both regular & mini), peanut butter chocolate chip cookies (which is the first time I’ve EVER made cookies by myself), and triple chocolate brownies.

Guess what?

I didn’t take a single picture.

Damn it.

I made to make all of these things in one night because I had a morning class Friday and the bake sale was going to be right after my class. Which meant I was elbow deep in mixing and baking. Oh, and of course screwing up because I botched the first batch of cookies.

Oh well.

I’m sad that I didn’t take any pictures. However, I’m very proud of myself for having baked all those goodies independently for the bake sale.

Yay. Go me. 🙂

Studying head

I just can’t do it man.

I can’t seem to get my head into studying. But I must. Oh I must.

I have to study for law.

I have to.

I need to.

This isn’t working out very well. I seem to get distracted (like now…) at every opportunity and every little flicker of life. Maybe I should confine myself in a hole somewhere, get someone to lock me in and not allow me to come out until I know all there is to know for my upcoming business law midterm.

Doesn’t sound like a half bad idea.

Anyone have a hole and a lock?

How do you get into the studying mode?

Buried alive

I’ve got a major love and hate relationship with school. Oh boy. I love that I have this opportunity to learn and I do enjoy -mostly- of what I’m learning. However I really. Really. Really. Hate exams and midterms, and generally all formats for testing.

Speaking of which, I’ve got 3 midterms lined up for next week. Each waiting to take a shot at me. I can’t wait for it to be over and I can breath easily again. Because after this week… its reading week! Granted, not going anywhere. But it is still better than having examinations looming over my head like a guillotine.

Good night.
