Panicking about life!

Hi guys! Firstly, I’m so sorry it’s taking so long for me to get these book rants out! I have pretty much no time to read or write anymore and it’s a sad, sad time. I’m reading King Lear for school though (am I the only person who really enjoys reading Shakespeare?) I have about 100 pages left in Lady Audley’s Secret and part of the reason that it is taking forever is that it is on my iPad and not in book format and because the iPad isn’t mine, rather my families, I don’t always have it.  This will also be short because I have a Social paper to write but I need to freak out!

Anywho so today I went to the guidance office at school for career and university stuff. You all know that I want to be a nurse, I have been planning this for 3 years and it’s something I am really passionate about. My parents want me to be a doctor because, hey, money! On my little adventure in guidance I found out that although technically the average required is 85% the lowest mark they accepted last year was 88%. There are 100 seats in the freshman nursing class. For every 14 applications they received last year, they accepted 1.

AHHHH! I knew it was competitive and I would need 80s but over 88%!?!?! My average last year was 86% and in order for me to reach 88% average, I need 90% in English, 95% in Work Experience and to maintain 88 and 86 in Biology and Chemistry respectively, (I did grade 12 math last year and got 81%, it seemed good at the time…) And that is just to get them to LOOK at my application. PANIC! PANIC! And this isn’t just for one university, all of them in the province are like this. (well I didn’t look at Edmonton because, ew, Edmonton. 🙂 ) So that was my day. So much stress! And the only thing to do when stressed out is go for a run while listening to rock music then rant about it to the internet :D. Love ya guys, Kisses!

Planning Ahead? What is this madness?

This has no relevance, I just enjoyed how it looked.

Hello beauties! So today I went to a university fair with one of my friends. (Aren’t we such good children? Planning for our future and being all productive like? I know. I’m frightened about this new development too.) Anyway, there actually were very few universities there, none of my three that I want to go to (U of C, UBC or UPEI) but they will all be coming to my school shortly so it doesn’t really matter. But there was this booth for a program called SWAP. Essentially what it is, is a company who helps university students find summer jobs in other parts of the world. So you are traveling and seeing the world for the summer but also making money. You pick a country then they set you up with a flight and two night accommodation there and during those two-three days they help you set up a cellphone, visa, bank account, find a long term place to stay, set you up with your job and give you the run down on how things work. I thought this was just such a great idea and I intended to do it for the summer after my first year of university. London, Wales or Ireland? What do you think? It’s a Canadian thing so I don’t know how many of you are Canadian, but if you are then go check out their website! I will link it HERE. They take people ages 18-35 and you don’t have to be attending university. If you aren’t Canadian, I’m sure there are other companies that do similar things so go Google it! Also, more travel news, my parents have also told me they are taking me on a trip as a graduation/18th birthday present anywhere I want. Spain, Italy or Greece? I am torn equally with all three. So opinions, please!

There! My future life is all organized, the present is a bit chaotic and not together but details! Hmm, what else can I tell you about today? *taps lower lip* I bought onions and potatoes at the farmers market from an attractive young Amish man. Oh and I cut and dyed my hair, both by myself a couple nights ago. It was so nerve wracking! I wanted my bangs done but my hairdresser kept being busy when I was free, so my friends told my to cut them myself and I did, but all I had were those curved nail scissors. So stressful! But they turned out okay, I think. For the dye I put in a red steak, it turned out kind of pinkish but whatever. My life really isn’t that interesting so I will leave this off here. Bye guys! Kisses!
