What the hell happened there?

I received the results from my biology exam from a few weeks back. I got a score of 48%! What the hell? I knew the exam had been tough but I never expected to bomb that bad! I was thinking maybe a low 70. I really need to go see the prof because I have no idea what went wrong there. A lot of people who had scores in the 30’s to 50’s, had 70’s to 90’s on the last exam, so maybe there was a problem with the exam? A third of the class didn’t pass. I’m not stressed about not passing that class. I’m currently passing based on the average of my two exams, but it is a piss off!

Dirty Old Man

I was working at Cora’s yesterday and served a man in his late 50’s. He had eggs benedict, which includes a side of fruit… it looked a little like this, except the banana wasn't cut on the end:

When I served him the plate he looked at me and said: “Would you like to bite my banana, it’s excited to see you”. Ewwwww! He said this in front of his kids and grandkids too! UGH.

Curiosity Killed the Cat

Let’s hope it won’t kill this curious cat because yesterday I cyber-stalked Mr. Maybe’s ex-girlfriend/mother of his child on facebook. I know I shouldn’t have, but my curiosity got the best of me. Plus, she has her profile wide open so how was I supposed to resist? I everything she wrote and posted over the last two years. It was actually a very fascinating read. I found it interesting to see the process of their relationship from the early beginning to the birth of their child to this weekend, which was their son’s first birthday.

I’m not sure what I was looking for, but I know I wanted to know she was like. I know he has no interest in getting back with her… it’s definitely not a question of jealousy, but I wanted to know who this women who will forever be intertwined with him really is. Mr. Maybe was only mentioned occasionally and with nothing too revealing. She’s also very pretty… not intimidatingly gorgeous, but pretty. I also got to see tons of pictures of his son! What a cutie pie.

Sprintime Méli-Mélo

I haven’t been updating because it’s been so busy lately. Here’s a hodgepodge of what’s going on in my life.

Home Life

After almost two months of searching for a roommate, I finally found someone a little over a week ago. I can say that I’m really happy to have that weight lifted off my shoulders… but I can’t stand the guy! I’m calling the new guy Big Rig because that’s what he drives… and that’s what takes over my street when he parks it in front of my house. He’s in his late 20’s and going through a divorce. He needed a place for a few months to get his “stuff” together. He’s a talker and insists on chatting away while I try to study or do homework. The fact that I don’t comment the whole time he is complaining about his difficult situation hasn’t clued him in that I am not interested! I’m thinking of wearing earplugs and pretending I don’t hear him when he talks to me.

Work Life

Still working at the restaurant on weekends and still wish I didn’t have to. I pretty much have my summer job lined up with the hospital. Since I have to do a clinical all of June (but am off May, July and August), it’s a bit tricky to work around.

School Life
I’ll be done school in exactly one month! Today is the first day I’ve had a small reprieve from all my exams. I have a few less stressful days and then I jump back in for my finals. Overall, I’m doing fairly well, but I can tell I don’t have the stamina I did before Christmas. However, I think everyone is feeling the crunch.

Summer School Life

I found out today I have to do two classes during the Spring/Summer term: chemistry and psych. I knew there was a good chance I wouldn’t get credited for the two chemistry classes I did last year and would have to do another chemistry class, but I figured psych would be covered no problem. I’ve done four psych classes in the past (first year and second year classes), but apparently they are not equivalent to this one first year class. I was so pissed off when I heard this! Frack. That means dishing out another 1000$ in May, plus having three hour classes on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. PLUS, these classes are going to creep over into my clinical in June. I’ll likely be losing my mind during the first two weeks of June!

You know what? You would think that having an eight year relationship with a psych major AND seeing a psychologist on an almost yearly basis for most of my adult life would count for something!

Love Life

Still seeing Mr. Maybe. I’ve decided I will not enter into any “dangerous” conversations until after my exams. For now, it’s the status quo.

My New Niece

Christine, Stéphane and Sébastien got an adorable puppy this week. Her name is Jazz and she’s a (almost) 4-month old Llewelyn English Setter. She’s adorable! Here are some pictures.

Run puppies, run!

I hate searching for new roommates

One half of the couple I had as roommates moved out in the middle of February. She had given me her one-month notice at the end of January as things between her and her boyfriend weren’t going to well. Since then, they’ve broken up and gotten back together a few times.

I’ve been advertising for a new roommate for 6 weeks now and have had one actual visitor. Ugh. I’m so tired of the whole thing! I received so many email inquiries that never pan out. I’ve had a good 20 to 30 people email me, many made appointments, all except one stood me up!

The thing that pisses me off the most is that my former roommate is always here… only now, she’s not paying.

One of those days

I’m feeling completely blah today. I don’t know if it’s because the March break is almost over or because I’m starting a new round of exams next week, but I just can’t shake it. Actually, I think I know what it is… yes, you might have guessed it: Mr. Maybe. *sigh* Don’t worry - Nothing has changed between us. But that might just be the problem. Next week we’ll have been together for four months. I’m starting to have really strong feelings for this guy. The problem is, I have no idea where he stands. I don’t even know if he considers me his girlfriend or not. He doesn’t communicate. At. All. I know I need to talk about it to him, but I have no idea how to broach the subject. How do I tell him how I feel without putting myself out there in a completely vulnerable state?

Pacha and Mr. Maybe

Mr Maybe was over tonight and we were sitting on the couch chatting. As usual, Pacha puts two paws on the couch looking to climb up. I tell her no, so she goes over to Mr. Maybe and looks like she’s going to put her paws up to him, but instead, she starts humping his leg!! What the hell? She’s never humped anything before! I tell her no but she keeps coming back for some humping. She does this 5 or 6 times and after several no’s she finally gives up. What the hell is going on with her?
