I’ve gotten all my midterms back and I’ve gotten an A on all of them – 93%, 90%, 87%, 86%. I’m pretty pleased with myself; next stop: straight As! I know I can do it. Let’s hope I can 🙂
Today I almost got fucking hit by a car, it was actually possibly one of the scariest moments of my life. I was waiting to cross the street at Cambie, and the light was starting to change and I could see a car a little ways away. I figured that he would stop, seeing as the light was changing and he wasn’t going to make it across the intersection before it changed to red. Well, he totally didn’t. And since I was listening to my iPod, and I totally space out when I listen to my iPod (I know, my bad..my bad) I didn’t realize he didn’t stop until I was about 3/4 the way across the street and I was like, “what the heck, why are there lights on me all of a sudden” and then it dawned on me and I walked like two steps faster before the driver slammed on his brakes, stopping about 2 feet away from me. I was SO FUCKING PISSED OFF – I just stopped and looked at the driver with a “WHAT THE FUCK?” face. And all the other drivers were looking too! And then when I finished crossing the street, he sped off and ran the red light. I can’ t believe people who drive like this are allowed to. And worse yet that we have no laws that stop people from getting distracted while driving say, on their cell phone. Ugh.
So Obama won, like I thought he would. I didn’t have much of an opinion on this election just because I didn’t really get to research tons about it. Though I’m aware that as our neighbour, an American election is important to Canada, I didn’t really feel like it was important enough for me to really do research like I did for our own election. That said, I do have high hopes for him and hope that he brings change to America, I feel like they really need it; however, I doubt that it’ll be easy for him to do so. Hopefully he’s not all talk.
Another plus of the day: my credit card bill was a lot less than I thought it’d be! And also, I switched my fido plan recently, so instead of paying like 50 dollars a month for 100 text messages, 150 daytime minutes, and unlimited evenings and weekends from 5 pm, I’m paying 30 dollars a month (without system access fee and 911 fee!) for unlimited text messages, 100 daytime minutes, and unlimited evenings and weekends starting at 5. It’s a really good deal! Plus tax it’s around 33 dollars I think, so I’m pretty pleased that I’m saving a lot of money. I used to always go over my text messaging limit and end up having to pay an extra 10-15 dollars, so on top of the 50 dollar fee for my old plan, I’d have to pay for the extra text messages AND system access fee and 911 charge. It really sucked.
