Canadian Society for Industrial Engineers (CSIE) Conference 2005

Posted on 24 January 2005 by Liza Mae V.

The break down:

… Thursday …

I went to school and dropped off my luggage and headed to my hair dressers.  While I was waiting for the streetcar, It was so freaking cold that my nose hairs became frozen while breathing in, and then defrosts while breathing out.  Blar … anyways …  I got my hair done and felt so fresh.  I love that feeling.  =)  So I head back to school for the 2nd half of my last class then head to the hotel with Melissa to settle in.

We head downstairs for the rally where you all you hear is noise of screaming people, to the point where you can’t hear shit anymore.  This is where I bumped into the whole Concordia University delagates and of course … Vallery, Jonathan, and JP.  It was nice seeing them again because its been awhile. 

I get back to my room and grab a couple of drinks … had about 3 double shots = 6 shots of Malibu Mango.  Get to the Kabin Club and had a glass of wine and Vodka & Cran … and it was down for the count.  I talked to everyone from everywhere.  It was rather funny.  =)  I couldn’t find the people I went with so I just walked to the hotel on my own where JP would meet me to chat a little … and then I went to bed.

… Friday …

I woke up bright and early and actually went to a seminar about setting goals.  I loved one quote that she mentioned time and time again …

“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at will change.”

I kept on playing that quote in my mind the whole time.  It means that instead of looking at yourself as changing from the person you are now to someone you want to become … you should look at yourself as that person that you want become.  For ex.  Instead of … I am smoker trying to quit … use … I am a non-smoker. 

The rest of the day was boring and I almost fell asleep on one of the keynote speakers. 

We went to the Hart house to have Wine & Cheese.  It was one of those social events where you supposed to speak to professionals but I thought it was pretty boring but I got a little bit tipsy and thats all that came out of that. 

That night the itenarary stated that we were supposed to go to Fez Batik.  I never heard of it so I decided to go.  Crystal was calling me all day to go to an old school Jam at Venue for her Bday/going away party but I decided to not go until after.  So I headed down to Fez Batik and I did not like the crowd, music, and my conscience was killing me.  I realized that I was with people I don’t care about and I should be with people that I do care about.  So I packed my stuff and took a cold walk to Venue all by my lonesome drunk self..  I did not have to wait in line since I just walked up to the bouncer and said what I had to say, so it was all good.  =)  I am glad that I made that decision.  I am glad that I could spend it with my homies, Akua, Tamla & Crystal.  I heard music I haven’t heard in a long ass time.  It was just fun.

After the club, we headed to the hot dog stand in the freezing cold, colder than earlier in that day.  Akua’s cousin dropped off one hot dog and Akua was driving off. 
Me:  “Where are you going?” x 5. 
Akua did not realize that her cousin was not in the car.  So she basically drove off on her cousin.  I thought that was hilarious. 

I came home with my hotdog and passed out.


I slept in …  then got my nails done downstairs.  It was relaxing.  I love being pampered.  *sigh*   So I got ready for the Formal Dinner and it wasn’t a really big deal since I was ready to go home … to him.  I  missed him.  So I finally make it to his house … took a shower … come out and find him telling me to follow him to the dinning room.  He had a whole candlelight dinner waiting for me.  I was surprised and excited.  I thouht it was so sweet.  =)  I couldn’t stop smiling.  I am still trying to break the barriers that he has up … and this was a nice way of knowing that another layer has been shead. 


Spent all day in bed with him & did some homework.  Ordered Dominoes pizza, Philly Cheese steak & Hawaiin and went to bed.


I am tired … and I need to sleep.  Goodnight!?!

gloomy day.

Posted on 12 January 2005 by Liza Mae V.

I am looking out my window of my computer class and it is so damn gloomy which also reflects my mood. I need some vitamin D, for those who don’t know, you can attain from the sun. I just want this day to be over because I am so tired and it is only 11am and I still have one more class from 2-4 which I may possibly fall asleep in. School is so dry. I only enjoy going to one class which is called Introduction to Controls. I can see my work piling up already yet I just look at it with procastination. This is one thing that I said I wouldn’t do but it is a very hard habit to break. blar … back to class … no more procrastination.

Movie Night | Hotel Rwanda


Movie Night | Hotel Rwanda

Posted on 09 January 2005 by Liza Mae V.

Its the ninth day of January and I don’t think he knows thats its almost been 6 months.  Hrmmm … come to think of it, I can’t believe its been this long.  It doesn’t seem like it though.  When I am with him it seems like time is still and it is only him and I that exists. 

I just came home from being with him and I feel so refreshed.  It’s like I have taken a breath of fresh air.  (Sigh) 

Hotel RwandaWe ended up going to watch Hotel Rwanda.  It was a very deeply emotional movie.  I remember the part when he tells his wife to jump off the building if they come to get her and the kids.  I looked at G and he seemed to get very uncomfortable at this part of the movie.  It was a very sad moment.  I still can’t fathom what really happened in Rwanda … or war itself.  It’s just overwhelming how many people die.  Which brings me to think about the Tsunami victims.  All the images we see on TV just doesn’t describe what had happened … and what is going on now.  It just seems all too surreal.

After the movie we went to the beach and spoke about random ramblings.  The simple moments of pleasure are what I live for.  For some reason his lips seemed to be softer … his eyes more open.  I am begining to see the layers upon layers being shead.  It’s a great feeling. 

incomplete thought.

Action Plan for 2005

Posted on 03 January 2005 by Liza Mae V.

Instead of a New Years Resolution … I am going to take an action plan because resolutions don’t quite work for me.  I need to take steps at a time to achieve something I truly want.  So here are the pieces of me …

MIND – My grades last semester has increased my confidence level.  I feel like I can do anything I put my mind to.  In mid-semester, I almost broke down and gone through some panic attacks prior to a significant mid-term test.   I got over that during my exam period in which I really focused on what had to be done.  The reason I was so edgy during my mid-terms was because I did not have confidence in myself and thought of failing when I should have focused on passing or even getting a good mark.  I did not help myself … I just gave up so easily.  Now that things have changed and I have a  better outlook on my school, I am actually pumped to go back.  I can’t believe that in 1.5 years I will be an engineer.  That was even hard to type.  All the late nights of non-sleeping were worth it.

BODY – I know everyone wants to lose weight but I am trying to keep my weight but keep fit.  I’ve been keeping my weight (for those who are nosey … range from 105-110lbs … currently 107lbs) for a couple of years.  The thing I’ve noticed changing is the rigidity of my muscles.  They aren’t tight like they used to.  I need to do something about that.  The fact that G goes to the gym at least 3x a week is inspiring enough.  He is so well defined that I am jealous. lol.   I don’t want to fall loose on my words because I’ve been telling myself I would do this for the whole last semester.  I want to take one of those before and after pictures to see if I am actually progressing.  That’s a thought.

SOUL – I am free.  I have no hatred towards anyone and if anyone has anything against me … I would like to know so that I could clear them up ASAP.  I am striving for perfection … but I know I will never get there, but the fact that I tried … is good enough for me.  I want to love … and be loved because that is all that I can offer.  I am grateful for my past but I stand today … strong … great … & perfect … hoping for nothing less than the best.

<3 – Liza
