First of all a few questions...
A) Is my web page no longer orange or is it just the computer I'm at?
B) What are the Oscar nominees this year?
Alright now that that's out of the way I would like to rant about the horrible day that I have had. My classes started at 8 o'clock this morning (and I thought 8:30 was aggravating), but my Marine course is at a different campus so I have to walk for around 30 minutes to get there. You would think that at such an early hour in the day it would be a reasonable temperature, but no it was 33 degrees out and humid as hell. After attending my Marine class, in which I learned such interesting things as: global warming causes temperature to rise and hot water is less dense than cold water...I had to bust a move back to upper campus and my lab. After walking into the lab class a few minutes late I had to sit through an hour long lecture about how blood was both fluid and red (WOW!!! Who knew???). Then I was absolutely shocked to discover that blood actually transports things through out the body...NO WAY!!! Then I had to sit for 3 hours and count blood cells...fascinating! Who is never ever going back to that class...ME!!! This class is all stuff that I learned way back when in J.H Picard, so all it means is more travelling and less attending class...I guess that might be kind of cool. Other than that things are going quite well...although washing my clothing has been quite the experience. There are no laundromats here, you either wash the clothes by hand or give them to the cleaning ladies. I have been washing them by hand and hanging them, but because it rains everyday they seldom manage to completely dry. It is hilarious to watch because the rain comes very suddenly and you will be sittting in your room and the moment the first drop hits the roof everyone sprints out to grab all their belongings off the line. I, on the other hand, figure they will dry eventually so I just leave them out to get soaked, hoping that by the next day they will have reached relative dryness (this has resulted in the past with my clothes being hung for 5 days). I've also been buying a lot of clothes in Suva as they are relatively cheap and I don't really have much. There are tons of board shorts, hawaiian shirts/shorts, and sarongs so if there are any requests for back home I would be happy to oblige. I now have more frequent access to my e-mail and so forth...hence my exorbinant trading in the Hockey Pool...so please send me lots of stuff. Any good gossip from Edmonton...I'm desperate for interesting news...As a final note (and this is mainly directed to my wonderful sisters) my first essay is about how McDonald's is destroying rainforest and searching on the web here is exhausting, so if you know of any good sources e-mail them to me (remember to send them to firstname.lastname@example.org) Hope everyone is having a marvelous time and staying out of trouble!Posted by Sierra at February 27, 2002 12:49 AM
