preferences

I'm not exactly sure if I've mentioned the fact that I love horror movies, but I'll say it again. I LOVE horror movies. If you know me, or my family you would also know that I am a bit of an outcast sort of speak because I like a lot of different things than most of the rest of my family. I'm into unique, different, scary, weird, crazy items. Including horror movies. I collect things like 'Living Dead Dolls' and figurines from Tim Burton movies-I have some from Tim Burton's "Corpse Bride". My latest collectors item is a little 'Joker' doll from Batman. The boyfriend gave it to me for Christmas because he knows how much I enjoy them. Turns out, he likes collecting things too. (We're actually going to start collecting some Family Guy little figurines! :)]

(Sorry, I got a little side tracked.) Back to Horror movies. Horror movies now a days are not the best there has been. The ones you see today are the typical story line, and you always know who the killer is going to be. Way back in the day horror films were cheesy, horrible graphics, entertaining...but GOOD! They did the best they could with what they had, so if you have chocolate or soap for blood, so be it. All I know is that I'm sick of the poor young, gorgeous looking woman always getting killed. I know people in the movie industry are running out of things to make movies of, but there are millions of things you could possibly make a scary movie out of...they sort of made it work with the "Saw" series. (I say sort of because the first couple were decent, and gross. Original and good. Then they started getting lame, and repetitive.)


Scream is one of my favorite 'Scary' movies. I'm not sure if it's the ghost mask, or the multiple murders you see in every movie...this movie is on the top of my list. It's original, and well made. It's kind of old, but if you haven't seen it already, I suggest you watch it soon. (There are 3 Scream movies made, and the fourth one comes out next month! It's different then the originals, but it still seems like it could be decent. They've even changed the rules a bit.)
--------------------------------------------------------
I know there are much scarier movies out there...so please, leave a comment and let me know what your favorite horror film is.

30 Questions in 30 Days - The Finale


It's almost sad to see that I'm at the end of the 30 days already, but I'm kind of relived because it was hard to remember all the questions..and just blog about them every day.
I really enjoyed doing it though because it just shows all the random things we're asked on a day to day basis. This is something I'll do once a year, if I remember! [The last one is my favorite out of all 30!]

Day Twenty Five:
Question: What are you up to?
Answer: Not a whole hell of a lot. Typical answer.

Day Twenty Six:
Question: Will we actually make it there on time if we take the 9:26 bus?
Answer: No we wont, so we'll just take the earlier bus.

Day Twenty Seven:
Question: How about coffee at Starbucks in Dalhousie when she gets off school?
Answer: Sounds good. =]

Day Twenty Eight:
Question: What's up girlie's?
Answer: Not much.

Day Twenty Nine:
Question: Do you want me to stop playing?
Answer: No! The boyfriend was playing Call of Duty..he always asks me if I want him to stop, just in case I'm bored.

Day THIRTY:
Question: "Hi, I'm Chucky. Wanna play?"
Answer: NO! I just finished watching Jackass 3 with my dad and boyfriend, and when we were looking at what was on TV we saw 'Child's Play'. Of course the boyfriend and I had to watch it. Ahhh! That doll freaks me out.

where does the time go?


Yet again, I've been slacking quite a bit again. I'm truly sorry and I'm gonna try my best. Pardon me for yet another random, kind of pointless, blog post...again.
--------------------------------------------------
Not too long ago the boyfriend and I decided that it's a good time to make ourselves a good ol' home cooked meal. We got the recipes from What's Cooking, Chicago? And Martha Stewart. Our meal consisted of Sliders, Garlic Parmesan Oven Fries and Peanut Butter Brownie Pie. (Makes my mouth water just thinking about it again!)

big bellies

 
Apparently I'm the only one out of the majority of my friends not getting pregnant and or having babies. I don't know if it's because I was awake in health class where they tell you that when you don't practise safe sex, you CAN, and probably will get pregnant. I completely understand if you're in a good relationship and able to care for this baby you're about to bring into this world, and are actually planning on having a family...then all the power to ya.
Way back in grade 10/11 a good friend of mine actually got pregnant at the age of 15. She wasn't in a stable home because she was bouncing back and forth between mom and dad where they had rocky relationships. Her "boyfriend" at the time was also in a horrible relationship with his family and they were in no good situation to be having a baby. WELL they thought other wise. And in the end she gave birth to a little boy named Blake. The sad ending to this story was that her dad had kicked her out when he found out she was pregnant, and her mom would only allow her to live with her if she DIDN'T keep the baby. Just a couple hours after giving birth she was forced to hand over her baby to put up for adoption. That was just over four years ago. Her and I had lost touch but it turns out that she kept in touch with my friend Courtney. I just found out the other day is that she actually just gave birth to her second baby. She's only 19!?! I bet it's a lot better than being 15, but I hope for her sake that she's in a better place then she was four years ago.
This now brings me to my other good friend, Margaret (Margo). Just over two years ago in high school she gave birth to a baby girl named Emma. Margo was only 18 and had just graduated high school just five months prior. She had only been dating her boyfriend at the time for a month before she got pregnant. She moved her from New Brunswick two years before this with her best friend's family. She had no family of her own out here, so she had no one else to rely on but them, her Calgary "family" and her boyfriend at the time. Well after the baby was born they moved out, and things got rocky. He found someone else so she moved in with her "family." Ever since she's been the main guardian for Emma, the father barley makes time to see her or take care of her.
--------------------------------------------
Everywhere I turned in school I always heard about someone having sex at some party and being pregnant. Kids in my school would actually pretend they were pregnant to get attention. Other's actually were pregnant and had the choice to lie about it and stay in school, or tell a teacher and be kicked out. The high school I went to actually kicked out pregnant teenagers. I'm not exactly sure why, and if it was a good or bad thing. The scary part was the amount of young girls actually wanting to have babies at so young...or just had the bad luck happen to them. (They must be the ones who fell asleep in health class =/  ) You'd think after seeing all these young ones getting pregnant and witnessing your friends going through what they went through that you would learn and be smart about having sex....WRONG.
--------------------------------------------
My sister's good friend, and an old friend of mine has been in a nasty relationship with this man for quite some time now. He abuses her mentally, emotional and physically. They have gone their separate way numerous amounts of times, but yet always end up back with each other. Well this time it turns out she's pregnant. She's 20, but it's still young and not in the best situation. She's almost due and you can tell that she's confused and upset on what to do. She's not the least bit of stable-ness to be having a child but there's not a whole lot anyone could do. We've tried telling her that she shouldn't be with him, but she never listens. Fingers crossed this will some how turn out good. *fingers crossed*

SO, speaking of pregnancies and my friend Courtney, it turns out she's pregnant herself. Now this is a bit more tricky. She's 19, she can hardly keep a part time job, her boyfriend can't really keep a job himself, he lives at home, and she lives with her mom and step dad. Oh, did I forget to mention that her family are Jehovah witnesses? YUPP, you heard me correctly. She has the worst relationship with her parents because of bad situations in the past because of her miss-happenings. They highly believe in their religion and wouldn't take her being pregnant very well. She only found out yesterday that she was pregnant and already her boyfriend is telling her to have an abortion. Courtney doesn't believe in having them so she's conflicted about what to do. She believes that she'd get kicked out, and that her and her boyfriend can't take care of a kid. Problem is her boyfriend believes that is she doesn't have an abortion that she's NOT putting the baby up for adoption. In the end it's her decision...but it's going to be very hard. (You'd just think that after seeing what our friend Margo went through that she's be a bit more smart about sex...but like a lot of other things, I'm wrong.)
--------------------------------------------
On a side note I think it's extremely brave and amazing what young mothers are capable of doing. I say this not only because of how far along my friend Margo has come and how beautiful her little girl is, but also because of the fact that my mother became a teen mom at the age of 16 herself. She was living in the states at the time, and she happened to make a wrong turn in life, in the end I'm proud of my mother and happy because if it wasn't for that desicion then I wouldn't have my oldest sister Angela, and my mother probably wouldn't have met my dad, then my other sister and I wouldn't be here today! My mother is the most amazing, inspiring, greatest women I have, and will ever meet. I love her more than anything and I will always continue to look up to her.

I promise all of whoever is reading this right now that I will not be having kids anytime soon. And if I do I'll make sure that I'm stable and in a good situation to do so.


making up for lost time

Well, trying to make up for lost time. I've been sick, and working, and finishing homework, and just pretty much lazy...which ended up in the pile up of '30 Questions in 30 Days' blog post they weren't done and just the fact that I haven't really done anything. I know this doesn't make up for pretty much anything, but I'm going to try and make up for lost time. Starting with the crap load of '30 Questions in 30 Days' post's I need to do. Starting NOW!
Day Twenty:
Question: What about Daniel?
Answer: "Nothing!" My friend Courtney tends to butt into conversations she wasn't apart of. My mother and I were talking about my boyfriend, Daniel, and then walked in Courtney.
Day Twenty One:                                                                      
Question: Have a good sleep babe?                                        
Answer: "Sure did, lol."
Day Twenty Two:
Question: When do you work tomorrow?
Answer: "I don't." :)
Day Twenty Three:
Question: Are you tired?
Answer: "No, not really. Like I can sleep, or I'm good to stay up all night."-I was staying over with my boyfriend at his sisters, and I yawned. Daniel automatically thinks I'm tired and ready for bed.
Day Twenty Four:
Question: What do you think I should do?
Answer: "Well, that's really up to you!" This question was asked by my friend Courtney. She has a little issue on her hand since she just found out she's pregnant. She's 19, and not really in a stable place in her life to be having a baby.

slacking

Day Fourteen:
Question: Are you ready?
Answer: Yes. I'm normally ready in time to go to the gym.

Day Fifteen:
Question: When does your bus come?
Answer: Yes I still take the bus...and I don't exactly remember the time I said it came. But my mother usually asks me so she knows when I have to leave for work.

Day Sixteen:
Question:Can you wake me up at 7:30?
Answer: Why? Are you afraid of setting it for pm again? Mom mother tends to screw up the times she sets her alarm clock for. Sometimes she'll ask me to make sure she's up...just in case.

Day Seventeen:
Question: What time did you go to bed?
Answer: I haven't yet! This was the other day when I needed to cram finishing all my homework into one night. I've done it before, and know I shouldn't keep doing it because it never turns out. But my dad worked a graveyard shift that night, and by the time he got home he was surprised to see me up. He was wondering why I was up and when I went to bed. He seemed pretty surprised when I told him I hadn't gone to bed.

Day Eighteen:
Question: On the phone?
Answer: I usually spend quite a bit of time on the phone, and when the boyfriend and I haven't texts each other in a while, usually we'll catch up on what the other person is doing. I was on the phone earlier that night so he assumed, which is a good assumption, that I'm still be on the phone. He was wrong. I actually feel asleep. =P

Day Nineteen:
Question: Any Higher?
Answer: It doesn't really get high. A few weeks ago the pipes in my house got plugged up. So whenever we put clothes in the wash or flushed a toilet, the water in the laundry room and basement bathroom would overflow. Well it did it again last night...BLAH! It just leaks a craaap load of water, we use whatever we can find to soak it up. He normally only effects the laundry room, seeps into the furnace room and then over flows the bathroom. Which kind of soaks the carpet just outside those rooms. It stinks and isn't the most pleasant to deal with. Errrg!!

Sorry for the lack of blog updates. I just really haven't had the time to do much on here.
