Well, that was a nice weekend!
Thursday, went to Le Saint-Ciboire with Bobby and some friends, had some beer :D
Friday, my best friend came home with her other best friend I didn't know and didn't really wanted to know. It went great, she's really nice, we played a drinking game (with Bobby drinking only water XD)
Saturday, Bobby and his best friend had to go to the library to do some school work, and I figured it would be much more easy for me to write my essay if I go with them (less distractions, yay!). Plus I got to see Thomas (the aforementioned best friend), and the three of us went to dinner at Les Trois Brasseurs (yummy!!!). Bobby and I had a nice evening alone, watching The Truman Show :D
Sunday, I worked, I got to play Clue Jr. with my coworker :D. Watched You've Got Mail and National Treasure with Bobby.
In other news, UQAM teachers are on strike since 20 days now, and the students voted the strike too, to support them. It's nice not having classes, I guess, but since 2004 (when I started CEGEP), somebody (students, teachers, etc.) was on strike at least once every semester... I feel like even if I got good grades in almost all of my classes, I miss an incredible amount of learning, because semesters had to be amputated in order to finish on time... The thing is, (when it's a student strike) they are on strike to fight against school fees rise. However, I paid for classes I didn't even get, because we are on strike. I'd much prefer paying what they are asking, and have a complete semester than protesting about it and missing something I paid for. Maybe it's just me, maybe it's because I'm only thinking about me, and not those who will go to school after me and will have to pay much more. Well, what can I say? Going on strike is supposed to be kind of a last resort thing, when you tried everything else. Those days, they go on strike first. (Let's just say I'm only talking about the students here. I'm well aware that UQAM teachers didn't go on strike since the 70's, and that they are the worst payed in Quebec.)
Now, let's forget for a while that my school is fucked up, and let's marvel at this: I'm almost finished with my Bachelor's degree!!! After this semester, I've got to take Rome: History and Civilisation
in the summer intensive semester (May-June, and then I have normal summer holidays!). I then have Antique Philosophy
and History of Ecology and Environment
in the Fall semester. And then.... it's done!!! I will then take a year and a half off school, working, piling up money, and traveling. In May 2010, I plan to go to Disneyland with Bobby!
After that time off, I'll go back to school for a Master's Degree. After that, it'll be likely that Bobby's gonna have finished his Bachelor's degree, and we'll maybe go live a year or so in France, work there, and see the rest of Europe.
Until then, well, I'm supposed to go to Gaspésie in August with Bobby, Thomas and some other friends. The guys went there last year, and they had a whole lot of fun. I'm really looking forward to it.
Oh, and I bought a spring coat on Etsy
! With the shipping, it cost me 30$CAD, and it belonged to the wife of a senator from Illinois in the 50s-60s!
So, that's it, guys! Waddya think? Should I write posts like this, where I talk about my life, more often?
