Dirge of the Homeless

Standard

As many of you know, my living situation has been very uncertain for a while. I’ve been one step away from homeless, but taken in by relatives and those with extra goodness in their hearts. My most recent caregiver told me that there was no difference between homeless people and us in God’s eyes. To be honest, I too would rather pretend I wasn’t related. This has been an invaluable experience and I have learned a lot.

But now I announce to you that my homeless days are over! 😀 I’m happy to be moving (up in the world). With this new environment, I will need to put extra effort into making up what I’m going to be doing without.

I’m going to have to find something to replace the exciting stream of job opportunities such as playing piano every Sunday at a local chapel, or caring for expiring humans and keeping them company in the final stretches of their lives, or driving people back and forth from the hospital with hopes of attaining a medical profession.

I will have to find a way to cope with the absence of career advice, that I ought to pursue a noble profession such a morticianship. After all, when times get tough, (and we all KNOW we’re living in the last days), people will stop paying for art, but they will still pay to have their dead taken care of.

I will have to survive without the constant questioning: what are you planning on doing with a music degree anyway? (ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. I’M GOING TO GO FUCKING DEPOSIT IT IN AN ATTRACTIVE TRASH CAN, SAYING “THANKS FOR IMPOVERSHING MY DAD” AND I WILL GO BECOME A MERCENARY. AND IF I CAN’T GET HIRED AS A MERCENARY, I’LL BE A SELF-EMPLOYED MERCENARY. OR I’LL JOIN A CONVENT. OR I’LL BECOME A GOLDDIGGER. THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS!). I would like to express my most heartfelt gratitude to those who have shown their concern about my future.

Another thing I won’t miss is reading Proverbs under duress every day. And as that pithy book mentions on three different occasions, it’s better to dwell on the corner of a housetop than in a house with a contentious woman.

But it’s been a good ride. Thanks for the memories. I will be glad to be moving into my own space. The prospect of organizing my stuff is an exciting one. I’m really going to enjoy running my life as sensibly as possible. 😀

I must close with this (modest) proposal. If anyone is still interested in putting my picture on their fridge and sending me $30 a month, I will most certainly be willing to write you letters in a foreign language telling you how my schooling is going.

OWL CITY!

Standard

As I stand and wait for the Owl City concert to begin, I find it to be a good time to update you all. There’s a gooey couple standing in front of me, taking selfies, and I am amusing myself putting bunny ears behind their heads. The guy beside me is laughing so hard at their oblivion. 😀

Owl City demographics are always hillarious: there’s 2/3 females between 12 and 20, then there’s the boyfriends who are earning their points, there’s the middle aged dads who’ve brought their tween daughters 🙂 which is always cute. Then there’s always one or two elderly ladies. I mustn’t forget to acknowledge the presence of our flaming young men.

I love Owl City so much. He’s such an awkward child, but he’s so endearing. It’s funny, someone mentioned something on twitter about him having a girlfriend, which may or may not be true, but regardless, it’s hillarious watching all my incoming texts explode in anxiety… priceless.

This is a picture of the boy band that opened for Adam Young tonight. 🙂

Life Updates

Standard

First may I begin by saying that there are few things more fun than sitting behind the biggest desk in Canada’s number 1 business school having people ask me questions.

Next I would like to mention that it made my day when my French professor told me, “vous parlez tres bien!” that I speak really well (apparently) which she hadn’t said to anyone else. 😀 Big huge massive thanks and hugs to my highschool French teacher who slowed down the review for the class so I could learn the basics on the fly. I’m so stoked to be keeping learning French. 😀

Lastly, I’d like to add that I just finished auditioning for vocal lesson placement. My auditioner who had accepted me to York earlier, and advised me to apply to the small ensembles which were normally filled with 3rd and 4th year students told me, “When you didn’t show up for the ensemble auditions, it ruined my day, and I still haven’t gotten over it!” What a champ!

I’m so stoked to be in Uni! Sparky the Wonder Spirit gives me glowbugs!

When

Standard

When Saturn wants cotton candy, he pours galactic sugar into the eye of the storm in Jupiter’s atmosphere.

When volcanoes sneeze they grow sky-mustaches.

When earthquakes want more attention for their christlike behaviour, they turn over tables.

When Mars gets tired of mooning the earthlings, he puts on the asteroid belt.

When Pluto was told he wasn’t a planet, he went and sucked his thumb with one of his oort cloud homies who replied, “I’ll be charon your pain with you.”

When tornadoes get laid off, they hide in sealed rooms making the air stale.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I hope you have enjoyed this science tutorial, one of a kind in its multi-splendored witticisms, originally crafted by my somewhat warped mind.
