I dont wanna be sick for my birthday :(
28 August 2008 @ 10:36 pm
3 summers in one year was bad planning.

I leave in a week's time. Looking forward to seeing family/friends again, but dreading the next week of much to do.

Being a billion hours difference in time from the boy again is also going to suck ass.

The security guards are mean and plotted against me in their evil scheme to scare me. I squealed loud and people in the casino laughed at me. Boo. People at the casino are funny. There are a lot of freaks. Some old lady today gave me a hug and told me about her sister and her sister's grandkids in Australia. Some people are so superstitious. Other's must spend thousands of dollars everyday. We have our regulars that wait for the slots to be turned on at 10am every single day.
Saturday is my last shift. I'm working the buffet room. Blegh. It's also the last weekend of the month which means the BIG poker tournament will be happening. Could be worse.. could be the weekend after with the UFC fight on. Thank fuck I'll be gone by then! I hope I dont have to stay all night. I'm just itching to leave now.

It's summer. Last night was ZERO degrees. That's just fucking weird. Weather out here is crazy. Super hot, then super cold.

I found my beloved Rockstar Punched again today. There's like one gas station in town that sells them and they're pretty much always out. I buy 2 whenever I find them. I shall go back tomorrow and buy some more. Yummy deliciousness of punch. Almost as good as Red punch Powerade, but not quite. It's my favourite ever!

My rental car is a Hyundai. I feel like I've digressed to working at Nat Caps. I shall miss my piece of shit Honda. Such quirks. Bits that fall off. Things that need to be wedged open.

As for my flight home. The Ramones sure had the right idea - I wanna be sedated, too.

So after many tears today, I've decided to come home. I miss Vancouver. I miss working for Morguard and I wish that I had stayed. Moving here to Camrose ruined my trip for me.
I'm glad that I have awesome parents and an awesome supportive boyfriend. Parentals sending me money, and boyfriend willing to wait just a bit longer for me to join him. I sooooo hope I can get back here for xmas. However, like he said - we have many more xmas' together, just because we might not have this one isn't the end of the world.
Sad. Angry. Scared. Disappointed. Relieved. Excited.
Home to the land of chicken salt, bbq sauce, and dangerous wildlife. Oh and my family... naturally.
I'll miss the freedom and sense of self I felt here. I'll miss Cool Whip. Kettlecorn. Cowboys.. and my friends.
This was the year of "finding myself" such a lame cliché, yet so true. I've fixed so many of the things I hated about myself, and I know that I'm now ready to start planning the future with Ev.
I got called in for 2 extra reception shifts this week. Fun evening ones! A little too late my friends. A little too late.

I've had a pretty shit week. Money is tight due to all my massive expenses this month and it's been stressing me out. To make matters worse - my car died... Turns out I needed a new battery and not just a clean up of the connections. Long story there. Then today I get an email from my old work back in Australia. Barb's cancer caught up with her and she passed away on Tuesday night. Strangest thing about that was that all day on Monday I was thinking about her, wondering how she was doing - missing our chats.. It was essentially the same time that she died that I was thinking about her.

In perhaps good news, my waitressing days are over. I'm being moved to work on Slots. Which will be pretty cool, and not disgusting. I love being on the floor and dealing with customers, but handling their rejected food scraps is a little too gross for me. Hopefully I get some big winners, and generous tippers! Tips arent as big as waitressing - perhaps only $5 an hour, but the hourly pay is more. The shifts will also be more frequent, so the money will be flowing a bit more too. This will help.

Ev and I have had some amazing chats the last couple of mornings. It's so nice having someone who loves me so much and understands me. Talking in the mornings also proves to be more pleasant. In the evenings he's not always feeling so good because of the pills.. poor thing!
We started plotting our drive down to Cali today. Google suggests going through Idaho and cutting into Washington.. But we're thinking perhaps driving through the Rockies via Banff and down that way to enjoy more of the coast rather than the middle of no where. Plus that would mean going back towards Vancouver and a chance to see that area one last time.. and a couple of my friends there. Always a good thing.

Heh what is with Camrose radio playing Australian music?? This time it's Midnight Oil. It's not usually until towards the end of the song that I've been singing along to - that I realise it's one of ours!!

Poor Canada still don't have any medals. Yet countries like Azerbaijan and Kirghyzstan do. That must hurt. I find it entertaining. Nothing like being Australian and having sport involved to make one feel extra patriotic!

Time to watch an episode of Heroes and head to bed.

Listening to local radio, I found myself singing along to the song - to then stop myself and realise OH MY GOODNESS! IT'S BEN LEE!! That rocks my socks a whole bunch!! Today is a good day!!
23 July 2008 @ 10:49 pm
My Mummy is away. I miss her daily emails and talking to her on skype already! Waamoo! It's funny how homesick I get when I don't have any contact. That said - I did talk to my Dad last night, but he always bugs me about coming home.
I'm looking forward to next week. I have only 3 shifts at work until the weekend (which will essentially suck because it's Big Valley the music festival) and I work 5 days straight, 2 waitressing until late which will suck... hopefully the tips will make it worthwhile though.
Also Ev gets his new laptop which is very exciting... oh and I finally get the weekend off! All of it! Woot!
I dunno what else to say. I'm tired tonight.

Best thing about working - other than having money..? Not knowing your town is on Tornado watch.
Working in a casino is kinda interesting, but I dont really do a great deal. That's ok with me though. It makes a nice change to not have a high stress job with responsibilities.
I was going to go to a BBQ today but then I had to work, and then I finished early but when I tried to call Ang, she'd already gone and I dont know how to get to her parent's farm, so instead I did shopping and talked to my boy.. oh and my mummykins.
I read some shocking Canberra news today. It's a little old, but shocking. It really kinda upset me actually.
ummmmm.... errrmmm... I dunno. I think it's gonna storm again. I love otters.
The End.

Sometimes I hate the mornings. Everyone in Australia is sleeping, and the boy is busy working... it can get mightly lonely.
I got a job yesterday! Yay me! I'll be working at the Camrose Resort Casino. It's a reception/waitress gig, I'm hoping the tips will be good while waitressing. I hate the whole compulsory tipping thing as a patron, but I guess it's a good thing now it will be my bread and butter so to speak.
The summer storms here on the prairies are a little scary. I don't like the fact that when an amazing thunderstorm hits (which I love soooo much) that they tell me to watch for tornados. It kinda kills it when you're scared you're gonna get blown away. I wonder to myself when is the time you actually head for the basement. It's a bit silly, but a reality too. It doesn't help when my best friend calls me terrified asking if there's storms here in town and if they'll be headed out her way... or when she packs up to spend the night in her parent's basement.
Ev told me the other day that when I move down to Cali in a few months time that he's going to fly up here to make the drive down with me. That was super sweet of him. Also, I like it coz that means he gets to meet my people. I hate a little that my new job means we'll get to talk less - but it's only for a couple of months. I just have to remember that.
Got some errands to run today. It's hard to get off my ass to do it. I like being an unemployed bum and watching movies all day and sleeping in. Plus I have to go harrass my landlords some more over my mailbox key. Very annoyed I don't have it yet, because I have my final paycheck from my last employer in my mailbox and I very much need it. The guy in the videostore says that a crowbar works wonders. I hope it doesnt have to come to that. Teehee.
Thankfully a cool day is predicted for today. It's raining so it should keep the sun and heat away.
Yes - despite the few hitches, everything here in Smalltown is going great! I'm so happy and that's always a good thing.

So now I'm in Camrose. It's been a super hot week here, but so enjoyable. I'm going to really like being here for the summer (apart from the heat naturally.)
Last night we had this super massive storm which was scary. This county has had way too many tornados lately for comfort. My love of the big thunderstorm has now turned into fear. I'm sure I'll get over it.
I love hearing the trains come through town at night.
Next week I start looking for work. I'm waiting for my disgusting Goldmember peeling to be done first, as really - I wouldn't want to hire someone with skin falling off their face and shoulders. ewwwwwww.
My apartment is huge. Love it. Love my new small town home.

Tomorrow morning I depart from the life I have become quite comfortable living here in BC for the last 6 months. I still have a few things to pack, and the bathroom to clean. I'm about to go and wash my car. Canadians aren't big on the 'Self-Serve' carwash like our Carlovers etc. Thankfully I complained about this and was told there was one just up the road. Then like WTF didn't Google tell me it was there!??!?! Waa.
Things with the boy are also very awesome. In fact I would go as far as to say that things have never been better than they are right now.
A point to remember, that I have not yet learned: Staying up until 330am the day BEFORE you go for a 10 hour drive, the morning BEFORE you work a night shift, when you have to get up at 9am is FUCKING RETARDED!! That is all. Thank god for my Rockstar Punched. Where would I be without you, my tasty tasty friend.
So that is all from me until I am in my new apartment, in my new province.

It's late here, and I'm tired - but I thought I'd write something. Today was my last day at my job, which was sadder than I thought it would be. I really didnt like it that much when I first started out, but the last few months were awesome and I'm really going to miss them. I still have a few shifts left at the video store - which sucks too coz I had heaps of fun working there... plus of course the free rentals, and watching new releases a week before they come out was a big bonus.
Found an apartment in Camrose today. That's one less thing to worry about, which is totally awesome news. Plus I can move in any time now, and not have to pay extra for the few days before July. Also very cool.
So yeah - this week - me, my clothes, tv and few kitchen items are being packed into my newly purchased car. I kinda like my car, it's hella old and nothing exciting - but I still like it. Probably moreso because it brings freedom and the end of public transport. Which by the way, I might add - I was so happy to catch my last bus and skytrain today!! At least for the meantime. Perhaps when I come back through Vancouver I'll get another skytrain. Will I miss the cramming in of passengers during peak times on that thing? HELL NO!!!
Well Vancouver, it's been fun. Time to go chase me some cowboys in Alberta!

totally craving A&W right now.

Last 2 weeks were the worst ever - excluding visiting all my peeps in Alberta.
This week... Everything is great great great!!
I cannot wait for Jen to get her ass here. I cannot wait to move back to Camrose. I cannot wait for whatever future awaits me with Ev when the summer is done.
Maybe my plans have changed, and maybe I feel a little bit down sometimes about it - but yet I really think this is kinda a really good change of plan this time. The boy will wait for me, and I will wait for him. In the meantime, I'm gonna make the most of my time here.

.... now to find a cheap car ....
