back to the basics

Posted on 03 December 2005 by Liza Mae V.

I’ve come to terms with my school life … that this COULD be the worst school year amongst the past 3. My friends whom I usually hang out with and study with are doing co-op and I decided I should just continue learning without the experience because we eventually work our whole lives and just because I do not have experience doesn’t mean I will not find a job. I am optimistic when it comes to my career because I know I have enough desire to get a job if I wanted. I know it won’t come knocking at my door but with enough pursuit I will find what it is that I want. I am in school to get my degree, though it is something I do not enjoy fully, there are moments of satisfaction that gets me through my days.

I am procastinating as I type but I can not get over the fact that I do not have a study buddy. This totally sucks!?! Now I have to suck it up and learn to be independant and have self-discipline. I am tired of my silent cries due to my own self destruction. I do this to myself time and time again because I venture into directions where I should not be going. What can I say other than I am a sucker for love and I’d rather lay down with G on a saturday in his dark room watching re-runs of old movies on TBS … instead of reading my books for school .. ackkk I hate exams. I learn things then forget them the next day… pointless, but that is how the system works. I probably will only use 5% of what I learned in school because 95% of it is bullshit. The main lessons I learned in school are to work hard, think analytically, and learn to bullshit when it comes down to the nitty gritty. blarr..

Time to stick this knowledge within me … then forget it tomorrow. What is the meaning of EOQ again?

Busy again / Random surprises

Posted on 19 October 2005 by Liza Mae V.

Sunday & Monday night spent at school … installing useless
information in to my brain, only to find out that 5% of the information
was being of use.  Plus, the fun doesn’t stop there, I have 2
midterms left and numerous assignments & projects due before exams
in December.  The thoughts of what has to be accomplished seem
unfathomable but it will be done before I know it.  I will conquer
all … in my realm or reality, of course.

Awww … he’s pulling the random acts that I always do.

He:  I just called to say good night and I love you!

After he just spoke to me 10 minutes ago.  How sweet. 
*sigh*  I know my last entry seemed so dreadful but it was just my
frustrations of minor arguments.  He always thinks I’m trying to
start an argument but I just state what I dislike … blar.  It is
just the miscommunication between us sometimes that the message gets
lost in translation.  It is like I am speaking a foreign language.

Random Ramblings Issue No. 1064

Posted on 19 August 2005 by Liza Mae V.

A pet peeve is posts saying “I am going to update soon!” … Just update … I don’t need a warning.

I just looked at my school schedule and I am in for another deadly semester.  I do not miss school, I just want to get it over ASAP.  I am trying to mentally prepare for it but its easier to THINK you won’t procastinate but when it comes down to it, I will procastinate.  Ack!  Also, I won’t be over analyzing my relationship with G as much as I do.  I have too much damn time to think of him.  School keeps me busy and thinking of other things.  Graduation is a hop … skip away.  It will be here sooner than I can even fathom.  The transition will not be an easy one.

My labor day weekend will be in NYC … its my yearly trip which started about 5 years ago when I was 17.  Usually I am so hyped about going but I am not.  Knowing that my house will be abandoned for the weekend and I could of had him sleep over the whole weekend … sucks!  It is too late to back out of my plans because I am the one who convinced my cousin to drive to NYC instead of taking a plane.  Only if I knew sooner.  I told myself that I would not go on vacation (esp. NYC) without him … but here I am.  I like to get away from the familiar, once in awhile … but he wants to save money, for who knows what.  AGhhhh … The main purpose for my trip is to see Lemar because he had just gone through a major surgery and I just want to watch over him.  I can’t imagine being alone after sugery … I would need all the support I can get.  I suppose the trip is all worth it.  That felt good to type.

The summer is almost over.  I realized I am getting sick of clubbing, it is not as fun as I remember.  Being in a relationship and clubbing, just don’t mix well with me.  My hunt has ended.  I usually used to go clubbing with Martina … and I had fun, but it is not the same.  It seems I only have fun when I have more friends around like Roxanne, Francine, Darlene, and friends from work.  I think because they are hillarious as hell.  I just enjoy the jokes we have.  I think the reason that Martina and I used to go to clubs is to pick up … no matter how much I  say I love to dance … this was the mere purpose.  I have more fun in dance class. [Reminds me … have to find a new dance studio to go to]  I think I am throwing in the towel.  My clubbing days in Toronto are going to be kept to a minimum.

I need to get a massage, my bed is horrible and I’ve had this knot for a week and I feel very tense.  Feel like paying for one.  Ack..

Memories … of highschool.


Memories … of highschool.

Posted on 23 June 2005 by Liza Mae V.

If I remember correctly … I just got my braces off in this picture so I was abusing the pearly whites.  Sue Me!?!  Well this brings back so many things in mind.  The days when I used to wear colored contacts … bleh.  It was the time of defining myself as a person … trying to find me.  Not saying I know myself completely NOW but for the most part I have a better understanding.  I do not miss high school but I definately miss the moments I shared with my peoples.

          Break dancing in the hall ways …
                      skipping class to hang out in the cafeteria …
playing dominoes/cards …

School’s Out … Summer’s In!

Posted on 26 April 2005 by Liza Mae V.

So exams are over and its the beginning of summer 2005.  =)  I celebrated with my buddies from school by going to Spring Rolls for dinner then heading to the mall where we would buy liquour and ask for McDonalds cups to put them in. lol.  It was a very funny moment but cherishable.  After that we headed to a bar called ‘Hey Lucy’ and then went to Mink.  Suprisingly people were partying on a Monday night.  I’ve never experienced the night life on a monday in Toronto.  It was actually fun … I got to see a WWF wrestler … which I am curious to look up but have no idea where to start.  He is tall & has long brown hair … longer than mine.  He is massive.  Can you tell I’m not really good with descriptions?!?  Well it is 4am now and I am so tired … I can sleep in.  YAHOO!!

On the other note, I still have summer school but 2x a week won’t kill me for 2 months.  I am so psyched because now we have more time to hang out without putting school before him.  It restricted me from doing a lot of things with him and at first it was a struggle.  He is used to the work system and I am still in the school system, so that made us conflict views in which we eventually worked around because priorities had to be met.  He adjusted quite quickly and I appreciate his efforts to understand.  Thanks hun. 

Ahhhhh … I can breath again.  I can’t believe that there is 1 more year left and I have to get in to the working system.  Scary thought …

Well I miss him … he’s at Niagara falls for business.  Now I am starting to understand why he is so sad about me leaving for 2.5 weeks.  I can’t even survive without him for a day and I can’t imagine him gone for 2.5 weeks.  *sigh*  I wish I never planned my trip to be so long …That also means … no sex for 2.5 weeks.  =\  I’m going to self implode … “Think happy thoughts” … lol .. K I am getting delusional … goin to bed …

Exam tension

Posted on 14 April 2005 by Liza Mae V.

It is 7am and I can’t seem to push this anxiety aside but the harder I try I get more aggrevated.  He said everything will be alright, tomorrow …  that I am just being naive and I want to believe him but I am stuck in this rut until 2:30pm when it is all over.  It doesn’t seem too far but why does it feel like eternity?  I need to relax before I errupt but I need methods of how to … get rid of this tension.  Maybe a shower will do.

long over due … PHOTOgraphy


long over due … PHOTOgraphy

Posted on 08 April 2005 by Liza Mae V.

I’ve been doing my PHOTOgraphy thing for the last couple of weeks but I’ve been lazy to post anything up due to my hectic school schedule … but whats new? 

self portrait

School has always been my number one priority for the last 3 years and I’m starting to get sick of it.  I always tell my self … “No worries … it will end all too soon”.   *sigh*  I have a exams coming up in a few days and they managed to screw me again by giving me 4 exams back to back everyday.  On top of that 3 out of 4 are 8am.  It seems like this sh!t always happens to me, but I am not complaining.  I just got to do it.  There is really no choice in the matter.  Actually there is the weak route in which I get a doctor’s note for one exam and then write it later, but I am going on vacation starting May 7 so I don’t want it to conflict with that.  I know I can do what I say I can do.  I am almost done with my 100th assignment prior to exams and i can’t wait to hand that sh!t in. 

Oh yah .. my vacation.  I am heading out to Sacremento to see my cousin and his kids then my cousin Geremy is going to meet me then we’ll go to San Fransisco and Reno.  I don’t really know what to expect.  I just want to get away and go on vacation.  I couldn’t resist the offer since my cousin was paying half.  When I get back to Toronto, the next day I will be doing a road trip to Kentucky for my cousin Katrina’s wedding.  I haven’t even seen her since I was in my early teens, so it will be rather interesting.  I hope Martina can come because KY is not the most interesting place to be.  I can’t wait to go there to relax because I end up writing alot when I am up there, plus I get to eat ‘soul food’ when I get down there. 

Other than that … life has been quite unconfrontational, but its great.  The  main confrontation is myself.  I have these self battles where I debate my thoughts and break down the opponent to figure out the weaknesses.  I still have to discover some hidden self traits but I am WIP.  There is not much more to say … but let the visuals say all.

let the pictures move you…
