But really all my school work won’t be done in two weeks, because we are getting extensions for a few things (I didn’t have to ask!) so I’m gonna be stressing out working on papers. AND I also have six hours of invigilation work to do, which is really nice. I will get paid 41 dollars an hour! How sweet is that???
Extra cash is always nice!
Speaking of extra cash, this past Monday I got a message from Apple saying since my macbook pro was one of the affected models that had video problems, they would give me a refund for the service I had to pay to fix it. I paid $904.06, and I paid it back when I was trying to move and had saved up money and then had to use it on my computer because my career depends on it. Anyway, I finally get it back! It was actually pretty easy to do, I called apple, got a senior advisor, he gave me his email and I sent him a pdf of my reciept and then they got my address and it’s hopefully in the mail right now!
I also got an email from Canada Council that they received my application, then today they said my support material usb drive wouldn’t open, so I formatted another one properly and put my stuff on it and sent it today. So that’s good!
I told my crush that I had a crush on them and she said she couldn’t reciprocate it but she thanked me for telling her and I think it went ok. I wasn’t really sure what to expect, cause you never really know. And I don’t want to be like, creepy creeper. BUT now that I know I can just appreciate her as a friend and continue looking for new crushes. And it’s spring! It’s freakin’ cold here right now, but spring time is kind of a sexy time of year, people start stripping down and flirting more.
I’m working on Audio homework today and tomorrow. I was in a protools suite at school, and now I have a recorder and a mic, so I am gonna try and get all my sounds before I have to take it back tomorrow.
Also I got a three dollar scratch and win and won 15 dollars! 😀 So that’s nice.
I’m pretty pissed about the injustice for Cindy Gladue, the Indigenous sex worker who was murdered four years ago by Bradley Barton. I wrote a couple emails and then ALSO wrote a couple of physical snail mail letters and mailed them off, asking the Crown to appeal. I’m going to a rally for her on the second. I remember reading about that case before the verdict came down and he was acquitted, and honestly I thought it was a very clear case. She had an eleven centimetre wound in her vagina she bled out from in his hotel bathtub. He so clearly did it! It seemed like a no brainer. But then the jury was made up of white men, and he was a white man, and so they sided with his defense and acquitted him. FUCKED UP! It made me so mad. Then I found out that the jury didn’t know he had a web history of looking at porn where women were tortured. So sick! He is such a sick fuck!
So there’s some good and bad of the past week.
OH NO! There was another bad thing that happened. My friend Lynn lives in Strathcona and was only a few houses down from where a violent rape happened. Some passerby intervened and held the perpetrator until the police came. But it was such a random crime, she (the victim) didn’t know him at all, he just showed up with a weapon and attacked her. It made me think how we really don’t have any safe places, as women. Not even in our own homes!
Well, I can’t leave this blog post on a downer note. So now I will tell you about my dogs. They are super cute. Little Mister always cries like a baby when I come home, so I went to the store and then came back and he cried and cried but he refused to give me kisses because he was also carrying around his little chewy and didn’t want Posey to get it. He’s such a silly boy. Also he was trying to bury his chewy in a teeshirt and I caught him and he gave me a funny look and took it somewhere else. Like I’m gonna take his chewy!
