[Hamilton]Lafayette

And the 2nd semester begins~

Hey everyone~  How's everyone doing?  So the new semester's started, but I feel like my brain's still in vacation mode ~____~  I keep forgetting that I have readings to do and now I'm already behind on them ;___;  So I switched my Economics class since I disliked the prof so much, thank goodness, and the other classes are going fairly well readings aside lol.  In my Environmental class, I met a boy (I think he's a boy...his name's Takumi so I'm going to guess he's a boy ^^;;) through my Loveless manga, aka I was reading the manga before class and he was sitting next to me and upon seeing me reading it asked if I like anime/manga/etc.  It was kind of funny because the class before, me and my roomie Jackie (we have this class together) were sitting next to him and we were wondering which gender he was...he really really looks like a girl...I'm so so so so soooooo jealous XDD Turns out he's an international student from Nagano, Japan (where the olympics were held a few years back) studying Environmental Studies, really cool =^O^=

In other news, I bought a pair of skates and me, my roomie Jackie, and our friend Cat are planning to go skating soon and make it a regular thing ^-^  I haven't skated for soooooo long and I'm really really looking forward to it.  It took so much effort to find a pair of classic figure skates though.  Everywhere I went all I saw were 1)hockey skates and 2) cushioned skates even for figure skates.   I've always had these classical ones without the cushions and I was determined to buy the same this time, so after searching like, 6 or 7 stores I finally found them x__X;;  It also really sucks because I don't have a car so I had to walk everywhere, so for those of you who don't know the Ottawa area really well, here's a quick map:

The red line is the route I took.  At one end is the Rideau Centre where my search for skates began.  The green dot is where I live.  Where the green arrow is on that route is a Canadian tire which was another stop in search of skates.  And finally my treasure hunt took me to the St. Laurent shopping Centre where finally, at Sports Check, my search bore fruit.  The purple line is from my house to the university, that walk takes about 20-30minutes, you do the math for my red-line-route walk x___X

But anyway, at least I found them =^O^=

So, there's the update on my life, hope everyone else is doing ok too ^-^  Even though I haven't updated, I have been keeping up with my f-list so don't worry, I still know what's going on in all of your lives lol.  <3<3<3<3
