On the way back home

Posted in meow meow on December 26, 2008 by Mitsu

So, I survived the damn xmas holiday, and I’m currently on the train home to Ottawa. It wasn’t too bad, I got time to chill out, and share a few laughs with the family. Right now, I’m living my nightmare though…

I’m on the train home, and there are two loud ass kids, and I’m getting a headache from clenching my jaw, and having my Ipod up to full blast, trying to drown them out. Why must I be cursed with having freaking brats near me?!!! On the way down, I never had this problem. What’s worse, is that the parents are egging them on, with all the tickling and such. GAAAH!!

This train can’t reach Ottawa soon enough…

When it snows…

everyone forgets how to drive! It took me 1 1/2 hours to get home from work today, because of all the snow that we got. Madness!! It usually takes me 30 min. to get home…I feel bad for those who live even further away.

I know that you have to slow down in bad weather, but what’s with all traffic being stopped completely? I don’t mind going slow, but I hate being stuck, not going anywhere at all. When I saw that my usual route home was a parking lot, I decided to take the long way. Yes, it crawled, but at least it was moving. Once I got onto a bigger road, I did 50km/h all the way home (the limit is 80 there).  I just got in at 6…ouch. I just had to post about this, since it pisses me off to no end!

Another reason why I hate winter.

Dec 1 update…

Today, I got a call from the HR department, asking for my language testing results. I’m glad that they called, it’s good to know that it’s coming along. My contract ends at the end of this month, so I’d like to know what’s happening with the process before then. I have the feeling that I’ll be kept on board anyways, so I’m not too stressed.

I know, my life is not too exciting… I was power leveling on MapleStory this weekend. They had a US Thanksgiving special 2x experience event, so I managed to level up 4 times in 2 days. No, I was not on all day, but on and off between workouts, errands, etc. My MS buddy Valakiry introduced me to the Carnival Party Quest, which is great for gaining experience fast. We did 2 on 2 rounds, exchanging wins, so that all 4 of us would level fast. Val is now level 50 after this, I’m level 38. I’ve also been training with jadedleapord (yes, bad spelling, but that’s how he spells it) in the clocktower area, against levl 40 monsters.

I’m also working on some paintings and jewelry, since my colleague and I will be selling a few things at our holiday staff party…Odd, I know, but people have asked us for that. So, if there is any scarcity of posts, these should all explain why.
