The good, the bad and the ugly.

Well, it has been a couple weeks. I don't even know where to begin.
I have been working lots of hours the past few weeks. I worked 12 days straight and was pretty beat after it. I have got to see some of the kids around the school which I love. They are all just really sweet and I wish I got to spend more time with them. Last Tuesday there was a Much Video Dance Party for the students. It was pretty hilarious. I wish I would have had my camera. I saw a few of the girls and got to sign their tshirts. They are so sweet.
Other than the kids, work has been pretty shit lately. It's stressful. I don't remember the last time I had so much stress in my life. I do not like it and it does NOT like me. Work has really just been the worst possible especially today when my file just mysteriously disappeared off the computer. I just about lost it....ok, I think I did lose part of it. If I could count how many breakdowns I've had or how many times I have wanted to quit or how I feel like I have personally gone backwards instead of forwards.
This past weekend I went to Darcie's on Friday night! Oh how I miss last summer. It was super nice to see her. I got to see a few people from Customs which was nice after so long. I saw Mike, and I really have mixed feelings about seeing him. I just feel hurt that he has not made any effort to talk to me let alone see me. His friendship was important to me and I feel like it just got thrown in the garbage. I guess I am just disappointed. Only so much I can do though. I ended up getting quite drunk resulting in Saturday being spent on the couch. It worked out for the best as it was a drizzley rainy day out.
Sunday we had a wedding shower at my house for a family friend. It was nice to see all these people again. It's been almost 2 years since I saw a lot of them.
Thank goodness for telephones and internet....I have been able to talk to Bernard quite a bit. Well, almost everyday whether on the phone, email or msn. It's pretty great. He is just such a sweetheart and genuinely nice. I miss him!
I am going to get my visa on Thursday, or TRY and get my visa I should say as Becca, my roomie for next year said she had lots of trouble at the consulate in Chicago. I'll keep my fingers crossed.
Who knows what I will do this weekend. I think getting together with Rachael which would be nice. Well, I should get to bed shortly as I have been exhausted every day.

Ugh...but I love those Chinese Kids

Well tomorrow will be day 9 of work. I have been working quite a bit of overtime this past week and a half and i'm not too happy about it all. That is going to change.
I did go to Toronto as a chaperone on Saturday. That was fun. I hung out with a ton of little Chinese kids. I was the only white person and the only female on a bus full of Chinese kids and their group leaders. Quite funny. The kids were adorable. I have never had so many pictures taken of myself in one day. Haha. They were really cute and friendly. One of the little boys "Sam" gave me a little give. So sweet. On the bus ride home I sat and talked to another boy, "Rich" aka Wong Hong Su (if I didn't make a mistake - and that is last name first). They were all super sweet though.

This is Sam!!!

All the girls I posed with individually!

One of the boys selling "Yo-Yo" strings out of his bag on the trip. Hahaha!

Anyway, on to other things. My countdown is still on....7weeks. Maybe some people think this is a bad thing that I am counting down like this, but I feel as there is not a huge reason for me to want to stay besides my family. It's sad to say that, but that is how I feel at the moment. I am looking forward to going back. I can't wait to see Bernard, though I love being able to talk on the phone with him. It's funny because I could talk to him for so long and not even notice the time go by. Like tonight, we talked for over an hour and neither of us realised. I miss him.

I am looking forward to the rest of the summer and I am planning to make the most of it. Enjoy it to the fullest and hang out with people here!! I want to enjoy all of them while I can because I know i will miss them when I'm gone.

Well, not much going on in my life here, so I'll sign off here. Cheers!

Well, once a week seems pretty good for posting. I mean, it's not like my life is as exciting here at home as it was in Europe. I don't get upto as much here, which can be a good and a bad thing. The long weekend is over...3 days off now I need to get back to work.
I had a good weekend. Friday during the day I didnt get upto much but went out with a friend to the falls for a couple drinks. It was nice to get out and just chill instead of sitting at home thinking about the boyfriend. I miss him like crazy and can't wait to see him again. I am counting down the days and I know they are going to fly by.
Anyway, back to my weekend. On Saturday I headed up to my sisters in Oakville and we headed to Toronto for the Canada Day Jam, Country concert. It was in a park right along Lake Ontario and hotter than anything. We had our bikini tops on put our blanket down on the beach and enjoyed the afternoon. We got rained on later in the evening when Paul Brandt was playing but it was a good day. I came home today and didn't do too much. I did tan for a little bit because it was a beautiful day though toooo hot.
Well, that's all for now....
