Being the Lord of the Rings fan that I am, I laughed so hard at this. Next time I see a notice like this at school I'm doing this haha.

ING Direct

So I've come into a tiny bit of money and I need a safe place to put it. I've been considering the online banks ING and Ally because they have the highest interest rates (at a whopping 2%!!).

Then I noticed that ING has a bonus for saving $100 with them. They will pay you $25 just for signing up, and then another $25 for every family/friend you refer! I thought that was sweet.

I might have to deposit a little money with them. I don't know if this offer is available in the States. Check it out if you're interested.


Another useful site

Check this site out and save it in your bookmarks. I guarantee that there will be at least one time in the near future that you will need to use it. How's that for a sales pitch.


Say you're trying to find my blog, but it just won't load. You type in my URL into the website and it tells you whether it's a problem just for you, or for the rest of the internet as well.

P.S. I got up early enough today to watch the sun rise over my campus! I'm not a fan of these 8am classes.

Fuck the RIAA and MPAA

 So on my wanderings through the internet today I came across this picture, which has the front page of Yahoo's news site. Take a look at the picture and tell me what you think.

Isn't that sick? My stance on 'illegal' downloading is that sharing is good for almost everybody. I love music. I have over 4000 songs in my iTunes. I probably paid for maybe 50 of them. In terms of music, I like to support the artists I like by going out to their concerts rather than paying for their CDs. At least then, the band can visibly see my contribution to them, rather than all of my money going to the record labels.

That's another thing....record labels claim they need this money to find new bands, but there is no way that is true in our day and age. If you're talented, upload some songs to Youtube, post it to Facebook or whatever. Your skill will (hopefully) let you rise to the top. Who needs a record label to get your name out there?

Sorry to get a little rant-y on you guys. Thanks for the support, as usual!

Canadian Club

So I'm a big fan of the tv show Mad Men. I notice they always drink a whiskey called Canadian Club, usually multiple times during the day (why can't my work day be like that, anyway?).

So last night, at my liquor store, we were having a big sale on it. I bought some of it and drank it on the rocks while watching Mad Men last night. I felt pretty manly....lol. After the first one I had to mix it with Coke. But I think I'll be buying it again, because it is very delicious. That is all for today.

P.S. do you guys like Mad Men? I love that show!

Look at this fucking hipster

I know one of my earlier posts was already about hipsters....but now I found a great site that's dedicated to disliking people like that! Check it out

It's called 'look at this fucking hipster' and I've been clicking through the first 20 pages for the last little while. The comments below the pictures are hilarious! Definitely a good way to unwind after a day of walking around my campus seeing all sorts of these tools.


So I'm sitting in an empty classroom right now, Tim Horton's double double in hand, waiting for class to start. I thought this was as good a time as any to make a blog post. Once again, I've been super busy lately. But anyways, I found a cool forum that I've been using for a little while that you guys will definitely like too.

It's the contests section at RedFlagDeals.com.....they post contests available to Canadians from all over the Internet and other places, and then you just go down the list and enter any one you want. I figure it's only a matter of time before probability works in my favour and I win some cool stuff.

Here's the link! You guys should check it out. I want to win a car so bad haha.

Going to church tonight!

So you guys may know by now, but for those who don't, I'm not religious at all. However, I'm taking an anthropology of religion class. Our assignment for September is to observe a ritual, whether it be a religious event or somebody practicing yoga.

I was thinking of observing an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting, but it didn't fit around work. So tonight I'm going to Catholic Saturday night mass. Hopefully it's not too long.....I've never been to church before lol. It will be interesting to see though. Hopefully I'll come away with a more positive view of religion, but I don't have high hopes.

Oh....I almost forgot.

Anthropology of Religion

I'm sitting in my anthropology class right now. The topic of discussion is religion. In my opinion, religion has caused nearly every conflict in human history. I think it is an outdated, medieval concept that doesn't really have a place as humans continue to evolve.

I understand this is a very touchy subject for a lot of people, so I don't mean offense by this. I just thought I'd get my atheistic viewpoint out there.

Filthy dubstep song

Dubstep seems to be all the rage on the internet nowadays. I'm starting to get hooked on it too. The only problem is that I live in a shared townhouse, and I can't turn my speakers up as loud as I'd like, especially not the subwoofer.

Fortunately for me, they're all religious and I'm not. So Sunday before noon is MY time to blast my music. Lately I've been obsessed with this song. See if you like it. I've listened to it about 10 times a day since I found it a week ago haha.


Can't stop laughing

At this stupid duck. I know it's dumb but everytime I see it I start giggling uncontrollably.

Sorry about the latest posts

My posts have been pretty lacking in good content lately. I've been really busy with homework and partying and going to the gym....the usual.

Anyways, I found a pretty cool site that should keep you guys interested my awesome blog. I used it a few months ago to send a silly letter to myself....in the future. I just got it the other day, which made me remember, which made me want to post the link here!


It's pretty cool!
I'll try to keep content more interesting in the future....thanks guys =)

Liquor Store job!

I just got a job at my local liquor store. The best part? My employee discount is cost+8%. I see much drinking in my future ;-)

Anyways, that's where I've been the last couple nights. No partying for me. Looks like I'm booked next Friday and Saturday nights as well. So I guess I can either be a good student and not party or just go out during the week. What do you think?

Off to the gym

I just got a YMCA membership so I've been trying to go to the gym as often as I can. Those memberships aren't cheap!

I'm just heading out for another workout. I'm even incorporating a little bit of weightlifting into my routine. Hopefully that will make me better at soccer intramurals this year. Today I'm going to do a lot of running and a few leg press type workouts. Gotta build up those leg muscles! ;)

Student's Union

So at my university, like most schools, we have a student's union. I've never liked unions. I never really use the stuff they seem to offer, such as health and dental benefits or other random stuff. I used to work at a grocery store and didn't use the union once, but I still payed $20 a paycheck in Union Dues and about twice that in pension.

So the other day I got a letter from the grocery store union saying that my pension is available to me as a lump sum, but due to the recession the amount of money that I paid into the union was sliced in half. I could have put that money into a savings account and made more than twice as much as contributing to the stupid pension fund. Argh makes me so mad.

And then the student's union forces you to manually opt-out of their health and dental insurance every year BUT only if you have valid proof that you have additional coverage. Plus, they make you renew it every year but they don't tell you that you need to renew annually. So last year I ended up paying $400 for health care I didn't know I had. Not that I would have used it because it's so much shittier than my parents' plan. Anyways, this year I hope I can get the paperwork in time to opt out of this shit.

TL;DR I hate unions. Anybody else had similar experiences with unions?

First party

I had a great time last night! I probably won't put up pictures after a kind suggestion from one of my followers that pictures like that follow me around. Sooooo suffice to say I won a couple rounds of beer pong and had a few too many drinks but al around it was a good night.

More importantly, speaking of followers, I can't believe I have so many of them! It's amazing what a little link dropping around the internet can do. Hopefully you guys are enjoying reading my posts and a BIG thank you to all of you =)

EDIT: Can you tell I'm a little hungover? Such poor grammar and sentence structure....

So excited!

It's Monday night and I'm about to head off to my first party of university life! I'm so excited. Some friends are having a little get together at their house on campus. I'm bringing a bottle of gin and, I know what they say, gin makes a girl's clothes fall off, but I'm N OT one of those girls. I'm just going to have a good time with all my friends. I'll try to post pics of the beer pong action tomorrow.

Talk to you guys later ;-)

Xbox 360

Soooooo breaking news. But not really. My brother's Xbox 360 died last night. It was flashing three red lights, which I guess is bad. He got so serious about it though! I think he cried more than he would have if I had died. Anyways, today he's "taking it into surgery", as he calls it: he's going to try to fix it himself. He's following this youtube video. Apparently if you stick pennies in your Xbox, it can soak up the heat and fix the problem.

Anyways, since most of my followers seem to be guys, I thought you'd find this interesting. Check it out if you have the red lights problem too.



Just got my books from Amazon today. Saved so much money from the stupid canpus bookstore. I got like 8 textbooks for under $200. Some used, some new, but all of them are in perfect condition. I'm pumped! =)
