Twitter Twatter

This week I made my twitter public. I figured it's probably a good idea to have a public social media profile for my application to be a VJ (see previous post). I submitted the first part of the application.... I still have to make a video but I made a huge first start (go me!)

Anyway, I have officially made my twitter public, and you can find me @kendarr

I also got retweeted by a kid who guest starred on one of my favourite shows. Have you seen Haven yet? It's an awesome Sci-Fi series filmed in Canada that's based on a Stephen King book. Anyway, I have a super huge crush on Eric Balfour. I mean, look at this guy!

So on the season finale, there's a kid who plays a younger version of his character. Of course, I fell in love at first sight. He's not really famous, but he favourited and retweeted me so I definitely felt star struck. He lives near me too.... 

So yeeeah... follow me if you want to see me complain about midterms and rant about randoms. Also, I promise to follow back so there's that

Changing Your Dreams

When I was in highschool, I loved business. Coincidentally, I didn't really know a lot about it, but I liked the idea that if I got a business degree I was promised a decent job in a wide variety of industries.

I'm three years into my 4 (now 5) year business administration bachelor. Needless to say, I am so much less impressed with what I have gotten myself into. I still like the idea of my program, even if I do dislike so many people in my program - including the profs. I like that I'm learning things that could come in handy should I become an entrepreneur. Although it feels like I'm alternating between super hard classes I'll never understand and classes that basically seem like common sense.

It's no secret that I'm a huge pop-culture junkie. Besides being a Little Monster, I follow most silly reality shows. I'm easily entertained by celebrities, and I'm really excited that it's award season. I've always considered this as kind of a side hobby - no one has ever taken my love of Lady Gaga and Honey Boo Boo as anything more than a waste of time.

I was watching Much Music last week when I saw that they were advertising for their VJ search. This year, they're doing a reality show to find the new VJ who will help host, interview, blog, tweet, and talk on Much Music. Back in highschool I briefly thought "hey, that would be a cool job", but I was never old enough. Now I am. However, I've never pursued anything relating to media or even anything close to what would be entailed.

So now I'm confused. To enter, you just fill out a profile and upload a short video showing off your creativity and why you should be their next VJ. I'm worried that it will be like business again, that is, I'll think it's awesome until I'm actually doing it. I mentioned it to my brother, and he simply said I'm too boring to even be considered.

My question is: should I attempt this? Should I put the effort into making a video? Or should I just go back to watching the Kardashians?

Rejection City

Started my new classes this week. Nothing interesting to report.

However, I met with a counselor at my school last week. I thought that maybe they would be able to hook me up with the accessible learning centre. Nope, they just thought I was "too serious" for the basic counselor, and that I need "very major" help. So that was my last free option... which wouldn't be a big deal if I had insurance or coverage. Nope. Completely at a loss of what to do now; even the professionals can't help me anymore.

Time to get drunk

Celebrated my friend's birthday last weekend. It was fun besides the fact that I ruined my Night Litas. Seriously, look at these babies:

Rain does NOT help anything. I mean, they're not destroyed, but the have enough scuffs to make baby hedgehogs weep.

Celebrated his birthday by making bad decisions... go me!

New Year, New Semester

Check out these lovely ladies partying up 2013-style. I'm third from the left in the dress with the sleeves.

I started my winter semester today. I'm only taking four courses this semester, and three of them are business (yech). Today I had organizational behaviour (which I've already taken... not impressed), business decision models (economics + stats = nightmares), and abnormal psychology (all about me!).

I'm excited for a new chance to prove myself. I really need to pick it up if I'm going to stay in my program. I'm determined to make it happen, even though it will be brutal. Say goodbye to my freetime and my hobbies.

Wish my luck! Heaven knows I'll need it.
