|10:41 am - A wonderful weekend in TO|
First of all, thanks to everyone that commented on my last post, I'll go get an x-ray for the tooth and then decide what to do from there ^^ (luckily our school just had a referendum last year and it passed so now our health insurance covers dental fees :D)
Now, for the main update on what I've been up to lol. I went to Toronto this past weekend (Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday) and I just came home last night. It was awesome, I went to visit a high-school friend and we hung out and caught up on a lot of things. It was so good to see her again, we went to the Eaton Centre, Centre Island, Chinatown and spent lots of time wandering downtown lol. Neither of us really felt like cooking so everyday we ate out, the first day was Korean and Japanese food, the second day we had Vietnamese, the third was Chinese (Dim Sum in the morning and Peking Duck at night :D~~~) and the last day was leftovers XDD. I didn't really take too many photos, but here's a few from when we went to Centre Island (my first time there, usually when I visited Toronto with my mom we'd always just go to the Pacific Mall, rarely did we venture downtown):
She's so pretty, she kept saying she needed to lose weight and I kept telling her she's fine.
And here's someone that really DOES need to lose weight lol. Can you imagine me before I lost that 20lbs?? I must've been huge x__X
You can sorta see the CN Tower in the background there between the trees.
We somehow ventured into Franklin's garden for kids XDD
On Sunday I also had brunch with shy_hinata . We've been trying to get to see each other all this past year but we kept missing each other (when she's in Ottawa I've always got something going on and I didn't have time or money to head to Toronto) ^^;; She had bought me a present from Japan when she visited there last year, and guess what it was?
THAT'S RIGHT!! I am now the proud owner of one of Kazuki's photobooks!!!!!!!! YAYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!! Lol, it's the only piece of official material I actually have of him, everything else are just downloads, scans, what-not, hehe. So pretty *O* Interestingly enough, I went with shy_hinata in the morning for Dim Sum and coincidentally, me and my high school friend went back to that same restaurant in the evening for Peking Duck lol. It was good to see her again, I love talking with shy_hinata, she's such an easy person to talk to regardless of if it's just 'KYAA'-ing over tenimyu or the serious stuff that life likes tossing at you <3 She also took me to Hairy Tarantula, this manga bookstore, and of course I couldn't resist but buy a few volumes ^^;; Not too bad though, nothing like my shopping sprees before x__X
Ah~ I wish I could have stayed longer, or just go more often, but Greyhound tickets, round-trip, to Toronto from Ottawa is $100 ;____; I woke up this morning in my own little bed with no one beside me and all of a sudden I was like "dammit, should've just cancelled my volunteer shifts for this week, postponed my tutoring and stayed the week in Toronto". If I had the time I also could've taken the bus down to London to see my mommy ;___; I don't know, I don't consider myself a super-social person, but after having someone around for a few days it's hard to wake up to a completely silent room, thank goodness for my bunny.
Well, anyway, there's my weekend, short but super-fun. Now it's just 2 more weeks to school starting, time to play around with that time-table again ^^;; Oh, and my marks for my summer courses came in, B+ for Theories of Democracy and B for Economics of Developing Nations, YES!!
Oh awesome pics! I wish I went to toronto but I don't have enough money if I did >.> It sounds like you did have fun and I'm glad!
Haha, I love my d-boys photobook. I know the feeling of having something in your hand and not on your computer.
Have you talked to Takumi yet?
Do you still have those chinese books that you used last year when you took chinese (well I think you did lol, I hope so)?
If not, anybody you know who are selling theirs?
I think I still have it, actually I think one of my friends has it. I'll ask her when I see her (should be sometime this week) and see if she still has it ^-^ If she's got it with her you can use it for next year~ Just...er....ignore our uh....random doodles in the margins XDD
LOL LOL THE RANDOM DOODLES.
yes i brought them back up haha i took them to toronto by accident.

Well there is no rush I won't need it till the monday after school starts. Do you have the cds with you as well? And thanks for looking in on it! It would save me a lot of money since school and paying for the apartment takes about 80% of my osap and thus I don't have much!
Oh and I was wondering if there is a chance that we could all get together on the first day of school? I'll be there around 8 in the morning and leave around 8 or 9 at night so I'll be be doing nothing for most of the day except my one class at 4. Let me know! and maybe email Takumi as well and see if he's free.
CD's? For the text book? Our text book didn't come with any CD's...maybe it's different than the one you're going to be using? I took the second year course, CHN 2901 was the code I think (either that or 2902).
I think the first day of class might be a bit hectic, with everyone trying to get their classes right and all. How about on a weekend instead?
