Things I've learned (and rather quickly)
  • Do not let your Mother's (former) boss book the plane tickets or hotels. Especially if he's not familiar with the area. Likely you'll wind up taking planes at 3:30 am, and get stuck in questionable inns nowhere near the local transit.
  • It probably would have been easier to fly to Moncton (get the rest of the stuff Ayla needed) > Sackville for 1-2 days > Halifax with my mother and myself. I honestly didn't get to see much because my mother refused to deal with transit or go exploring around.
  • Avoid using cabs if you can on the East Coast. MAN, THEY GOT IT GOOOOOOOOD (well not good for the passengers, but w/e w/e)
  • Avoid using the VIA rail, unless there is no reasonable way. Likely there will CRAZIES on board and crew who don't care to help you out. Not having wifi meant the ride from Halifax to Sackville was a snore fest, up until this obnoxious guy got on board and insisted I was a she-man and that my mother looks like Tom Cruise? Also he was incredibly loud and rude about / e v e r y t h i n g / and according to him I'm wasting my life away because I don't have a desire to ride a car?
  • Taking someone who's highly introverted and has social anxiety issues (me) through a tour of the Windsor Hall in Mount Allison was possibly the worst idea anyone could have come up with. Thankfully my sister did get moved into a more quiet house with one of those international students who are only there for a semester. And I got to run off the campus pretty quick.
  • Carpal tunnel or arthritis and eating crustaceans don't go hand in hand.
  • My hair misses the hell out of the east coast weather.
The fall season is going to be interesting for anime and tv shows.
  • Tiger & Bunny movie is out on Sept. 22nd (I full expect the internet to provide subs quick)
  • Madoka Magica movie 1 is out Oct. 6th and the 2nd movie is out on the 13th. (TEARS AND FEELS)
  • Magi should start airing in October
  • I'm not 100% sure if I'll watch Elementary because honestly I wasn't too impressed with the pilot episode.
  • QI returns with series J starting Sept. 14th if I remember correctly.
  • Parades End still has 2 more episodes to be released
  • I'm starting to watch Copper
  • Doctor who series 7: I may or may not continue watching it at this rate.
Well at least I was able to remember some CSS/html from ALL THOSE YEARS AGO. I ended up whipping up this as a basic template for my sister, should she actually choose to do something with it - who knows. Anyway, I'm just going to tidy up my room and finally get around to playing more Assassin's Creed in the afternoon and Copper/Kuroko's balls in the evening.

It's getting to that time of the year when I finally need to bite the dust and buy a new pair of headphones. Thankfully, since I had to buy my sister a cellphone I got a $100 gift card towards the cost. However, I'll probably look after I get back from our trip + dropping my sister off at Mount Allison since that'll give me some time to look into my choices.

Small to do list:
  • Water plants (indoor and outdoor), clean apartment, VACCCCCCUUUUM, make beds, clean out fridge, take garbage outside and clean cat box
  • Buy crickets for my crested geckos, make an instruction list for my friends coming over while I'm away, get them to pick up my mail
  • Move geckos into my sister's room for the week, put them all on a timer, feed Schrodinger.
  • Cry because my Wreck fan book hasn't arrive and I'm internally panicking because I hate shipping and Canada Post in general.
I'm all packed up for the vacation, with the exception of packing a carry on and confirming who's coming to visit my pets. Still not looking forward to waking up at 3:30am to leave for the airport, ughh too early.

Last week I had my wisdom tooth pulled, chew a cold sore on the other side of my mouth open, allergies to seemingly everything (especially people wearing perfumes again), and that beloved curse for woman has arrived with a vengeance. Bless pain killers, but I'm not looking forward to a trip on a plane while cramping.

Ayla found out that her will-be room mate is one of those EXTREME PARTY HARDERS, that lives about 15 minutes away from Mount Allison but is living on residence (?). I wish her the BEST OF LUCK all while cackling like a good older sister should. It's good to know that if I ever do decide to get my post secondary education out of London, that I'll automatically be looking for an apartment to rent because of my reptiles and cats. But first my immediate goals in life are to upgrade all my courses into university levels and get a job to earn some of the tuition money I'll need, so that I don't need to bank off OSAP and other loans.

This as been a useless post so I'm off to watch PARADE'S END, have Sherlock /FEELS/, and watch the mid-season finale of Suits tonight, hey maybe I'll even get some Skyrim or Dragon Age time in at that point. jkjk, change of plans. I'll just reread reapersex comics and laugh at this fandom.

My 2.5 year old laptop has been causing me problems lately with the sensitivity of the track pad and where my hands naturally rest, so I knew I would have to look into buying a new computer pretty soon. I sat down and made of small list of requirements before I looked into my options.
