Childs Soul
All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten
    -- Robert Fulghum

  1. Share everything.
  2. Play fair.
  3. Don't hit people.
  4. Put things back where you found them.
  5. Clean up your own mess.
  6. Don't take things that aren't yours.
  7. Say you're sorry when you hurt somebody.
  8. Wash your hands before you eat.
  9. Flush.
  10. Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.
  11. Live a balanced life--learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some.
  12. Take a nap every afternoon.
  13. When you go out into the world, watch out for traffic, hold hands, and stick together.
  14. Be aware of wonder. Remember the little seed in the Styrofoam cup: The roots go down and the plant goes up and nobody really knows how or why, but we are all like that.
  15. Goldfish and hamsters and white mice and even the little seed in the Styrofoam cup--they all die. So do we.
  16. And then remember the Dick-and-Jane books and the first word you learned--the biggest word of all--LOOK.

So I'm kinda bored and never post often enough. So I hope that doing this will, you know, spark something in me to post daily!

Day One:

A Show That Should Have Never Been Canceled:

PUSHING DAISIES

-This show was incredible, and such a weird concept. I loved all the characters, and how they never once became unbelievable in their actions. The plot, although ridiculous at times was just what the show needed.

It is a shame that it's not on anymore :(

:O Oh Snap-Meiko
Today I found out something very special and important.

I made FIRST round picks for the Education Program at UNBC. This means, I am one of the 15 people they choose first hand to enter their program out of hundreds of applications.

I WIN.

20 minutes ago. I finished my LAST EVER term paper.

That is all. This message brought to you from Melissa's Finally Finished her BA club.
28th-Feb-2010 04:35 pm - Vancouver 2010 Olympics
Tolerance
I have to first say, I was against the Olympics, because of the amount of money has been spent, and the Education budget that was slashed to pay for it. I was doubtful as to what it would have on the country, and people in general. So much pressure was put on the athletes to win gold, "Own The Podium" being attacked as unfair advantages to other athletes.

I have not changed my dislike for what it costs, and how a lot of the games is on the spectacular, rather than the athletics.

I however, have never been more proud to be a Canadian. I got to watch my fellow countrymen and women do what they do best, their passions, and getting their rightfully deserved medals. Sure there were some disapointments, with poor Melissa Hollingsworth making a mistake and missing the podium, but she tried her hardest, and did something that most of us can't do. There are atheletes that have broken Olympic and World Records, Clara Hughes being the most decorated athlete in both Winter and Summer Olympics, Alex Bilideau making the first ever gold medal on home soil. Olympic records set by the Hamelin brothers in short track speed skating, Marianne St Gelais taking home a silver on her birthday, Jon Montgomery drinking beer after his medal, our women's curling team, which came out of no where, and played beautifully and took home a silver, to our men's team, determined and took their gold. For our Ice Dancing team, taking gold, the first ever in a North American team, the first ever Canadain and youngest team to get a gold with Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir. Our women's hockey team taking their 3rd straight gold medal in Olympic games, to our Men's hockey team, becoming the first Hockey team in history to win on home soil. To the true hero of the games, Joannie Rochette, who skated her way to a bronze medal, days after the tragic death of her mother.
There are so many medals and awards we've won, and I'm so proud of each and everyone of them.

I think this is what the Olympics meant to do. To bring together a nation, to understand what its truly like to be united as one single nation, with a goal of showing the world what we're made of.

Our television stations do not limit the Canadian victories, we have seen every single event, every single victory ceremony, watching the Americans, the Germans, the Koreans, every other country, as they took their rightful victory.

Yes there are ups and downs of sports, and a lot of controversy with judging and losing by .01 of seconds, but the thing is, they did wonderfully, and worked their hearts off.

I'm proud.
I'm proud to be Canadian. I'm proud to be a member of the this planet and proud of every single athlete tried their hardest to get what they worked their lives to get there.

I'm proud.

So I think my goal of updating every week did not last.

Let's do a quick update shall we?

I wrote papers.

Planned the Masquerade.

Wrote another Paper.

Researched a paper.

Wrote a midterm.

Wrote a seminar.

Oh its reading week! THANK GOSH!

I watched the opening ceremonies of the Olmypics, very well done. I really enjoyed how we altered the ceremony to include the death of the Georgian Luger who died on Friday on our track.

I am also disgusted with the protesters, I myself am against the amount of money spent on the Olympics, but these people are taking it to an extreme, causing damage and what not. This is just extreme and not the reason as to why they're protesting. But its a lost cause speaking of it, because nothing I say could make a difference.

Oh and speaking of being almost done. (Because really, we weren't but I say so) 34 DAYS OF SCHOOL BEFORE I GRADUATEEEE
23rd-Jan-2010 05:13 pm - Haiti
RedCross
As you know, on January 12th, 2010, at 4:52 a 7.0 magnitude earthquake hit the west coast of Haiti, most of the damage hitting its capital, Port au Prince. Since that Tuesday, the country has been hit with devastating after shocks. This has been reported as the worst natural disaster in over 200 years.
The people of Haiti have been left with nothing, no food, water, shelter of medical supplies. People have been trapped under rubble and they have been pulling out more dead bodies than alive. Mass graves are now filling the city, with dead being Haitian, Canadian, American and much more. These graves hold an unknown amount of people, without names, or family to be notified.
This has become not only devastating to Haiti, but countries around the world.

You're watching the news, and you're seeing these images, but you're missing something important besides the need for immediate relief. Relief and care for the years to come. It is estimated that it will take over 10 years to rebuild this country.

I want you to think for a moment. Think about when you were in school, about the time of day, out by 3PM or so? Not so in Haiti, schools operate in the afternoons, which means when that earthquake hit, the schools were filled with students, who quickly saw students die around them.
Think about the 50 thousand children that are now orphans, who watched their parents die, or didn't know of their deaths, and they're just missing. It is immeasurable the pain and suffering that is happening in Haiti right now.

But we can help. Since the earthquake hit, I have been working tiresly with The Canadian Red Cross and Free The Children to help provide essentials for survival for this country that can not support itself. 100% of whatever is raised will go directly to Haiti, not a single cent is left behind in someones pocket. Its going to where its needed the most. Which is why this country needs your help. I know you're thinking what can I do? But you can do a lot, one dollar will save a life. Provide a family with water. That one cup of coffee you're going to buy, do you really need it? Can you spare that money to save a life?
Please, I am asking every last single one of you to Donate! Because we have so much, and there is a country out there with nothing.

So please visit http://www.canadaforhaiti.com in Canada to find a list of phone numbers, text numbers and ways to donate.
Or you can visit http://www.hopeforhaiti.com

Both of these websites will stay open until middle of February collecting donations for this country.
As an incentive, the Canadian government will match donations up to $50 million for anything raised.

Please donate now. Organise a fundraiser, do anything because we can, and isn't that the definition of humanity?

You can also donate through most banks, to your local salvation army, red cross, and private organisations for Haiti relief, including iTunes.

Please, give as little or as much as you can, because one day, it could be you.
