Woman Deletes Internet!

Posted by Brad on February 11, 2006

well that title doesn’t have anything to do with this post. I leave in 5  days now. Holy shit, thats soon. I had a dream last night that i forgot my passport at home, and i was at the airport, so then i couldnt go and i was just stranded in Toronto. Let’s hope that doesnt happen. Fingers crossed. So, I fugure today I ought to do a test pack to see how much my bags are going to weigh, and to make sure that i have everything. The stupid airlines lowered the weight limits, grrrr. Travelling is stressful.

Single Digits

Posted by Brad on February 7, 2006

Ok so the official countdown to France is 9 days. Yes thats right, single digit days. Very scary. I started second semester today, it is muy bueno and it will suck to leave it for 3 months. Alex and I are in the same classes all day together ( she is leaving too in 12 days)

I guess for now i will just bask in the doings on nothing. 😀

Finaly Done!

Posted by Brad on January 26, 2006

This semester is fianally over! Thank god, it was definetly the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. English, math, science and history, all at the same time. The good news is that i might be exempt from Civics/Careers for this semester, meaning i dont have to spend hours online in France doing it :-).
