Still no live journal
So I have checked again and still no live journal, they better have a good reason for being down so long. I think I have decided to switch to here permanently, although I am going to miss the bouncing little stars I was able to add to every post. Oh well, we'll see where I end up. Anyway, back to work I go.
Live Journal is Pi**ing me off...
So I have my blog on live journal right now, and for the most part I love it, but recently there have been times when I cannot get onto it... like right now. I have way too much energy right now, cause I have been sitting in front of my computer since 11:30am this morning, it is now 2:30am. It is a long story as to why I am still sitting here... so I'm not going to get into it. I am going to check out this blog site, and see how I feel about it. Maybe, just maybe I will switch all my posts over here.
Is there a way to change the time and day of this post? Nevermind I found it. :)
*p.s. every post before this one was coppied over from Live Journal*

Our day in Toronto
*Warning there is a mushy part below*
So yesterday, J. and I went to Toronto to see Evil Dead 1 & 2 the Musical. It was fantastic, I recommend it to everyone. Too bad it is now playing Montreal. If it comes again next year, we are so going. If you like the movies, you will love the play. It is so funny and fantastically gorey, gotta love those Candarian Demons. LOL
So we were planning on getting to Toronto early to spend they day there, but the alarm didn't go off, so we ended up getting there around 4pm, I think. We parked at the subway, and decided to get a day pass. We walked around for a while, I finally got the see Much Music. Nothing exciting was going on there. We went to the Silver Snail, which is a collectibles store. Did you know they made C.S.I. trading cards? Neither did I. So now I am the proud owner of 14 C.S.I. Trading Cards. :) It was fantastic, we took the subway all over. We had hot dogs, and we split a sub, for dinner.
*Mushy part* J. was so cute, he sat with his arm around me the entire time we were on the subway, and he held my hand the whole time. It was so wonderful. He also sat with his arm around me for the whole play as well. *Mushy part complete*
Overall it was a fantastic day. I talked to my mom and she asked me if we bough anything special yesterday, knowing what she ment I said yes. Then she asked me what it was, so I told her about the cards. Silly mother...
Email from a prof to a student
*This is an actual email one of my profs I had at WLU sent to a friend of mine about one of the courses he teaches. I just wanted to share it with everyone. She wanted to know if DBII (Database 2, the sequel to Database 1) will be offered next year, as a lot of the 4th year classes have been canceled.*
"Unfortunately, DBII will not be offered, finally. This is mostly due to the incompetent Chair that this Department has to suffer from. That stubborn moron, will ultimately drive the Department into disaster, unless he is replaced by someone with a vision. Again, I am very sorry and extremely dissapointed that DBII is not offered this Fall."
You gotta love Computer Profs.

Evil Dead 1 & 2 the musical
Well today J. and I are heading to Toronto to see Evil Dead 1& 2 the musical. Here's the link. For anyone that has seen any of the Evil Dead movies, will understand why I am so excited to go. We have decided to make a day of it, and walk around Toronto and see the sites. Ok, well maybe not the sites, but some cool places. We will not be heading to the C.N. Tower, since we have both been there. We are, however, going to the Much Music building, as I have never been and always wanted to. :) I am such a geek.
Well here's the update for living arrangements, as it stands right now. I have decided that if I don't have a job by the beginning of August, I will move home by the end. There is no point in me moving out on my own if I don't have a job to support me, even though I have enough money saved up. So all my stuff will be moved to my parents office, and only the things that I really need will be moved home with me. Then in October, if I am still there, we will be moving to the new house, where I will have to have a small party and invite you guys to try out the bar, new pool table, and the surround sound speakers!! I will keep you posted on that.
Anyway, I should continue getting ready for my day in Toronto.

Wow this has been a busy day...
So I get in the car on Sunday, and mom turns to me and says "um... your car has had another accident..." Turns out that the cover for the big storage container had one of it's corners broken off. Mom things it might have been because it was not quite closed when the cup holder was opened. So I decided to just take it out. It looks funny, cause now there is a slight hole underneath it, between it and the cup holder. I might try to get another cover, provided it doesn't cost too much. If not it's alright, I can just use it to store cd's.
I should have learned by now not to ask my mother anything, cause she never has any idea of what is going on. She told me that there were no back speakers in my car, which is true, but she also told me that there were wires hanging there, so if I wanted to, I could just plug speakers into it. Guess what... no speaker wire. So I either have to run wires, or not have back speakers. I will have to see how easy it will be for me to run them, cause I don't want to pay some guy to make a mess of my car. I think all the times I have watched speaker wire being run, I think I can handle it myself, I put a CD player in my old car, didn't I?
back to today...
So I decided to head to the office this morning, because I had forgotten to get Lillian to send home the SOP that I had to read and sign, this weekend. Little did I know how much I actually had to read. It was a good thing I did come in, because we are creating the final build of CIM today, and I will be starting work on CAL. Alan thinks it is better if I start working on CAL in the office, in case I have any questions. Really it shouldn't be too difficult to learn.
So this morning, I have been finishing up the screen shots, getting Rolland to fix some final cosmetic bugs (I don't know how well the rest of them are doing.), checking over the manual, reading the SOPs, and starting on CAL. I know that doesn't sound like much, but when it all needs to be done a.s.a.p, it's a lot of work. I need to get all of this done, well except CAL, today before I leave for home. *** Yes I am writing this at work... CAL and CIM take a long time to import, so I have a bit of waiting time. Plus I am waiting for a final build and the final manual. (I love having my own laptop to work on.)*** Ok so I'm not actually posting this at work, I am going to post it when I get home.

So some good news... I have stopped taking my medication for my hernia, and have no symptoms. I have about 6 weeks of the medication left incase I do need to take it again, but for now I am going to stop taking it to see how long I can go without it, or what the trigger seems to be.
I have now posted some pictures, that you can get from my home page, which is probably how you found this. There are pictures of my car, my graduation, and a little get together that we had here.
I know it has been a while since my last post, but I have been working so hard to try and get the program complete... they want to release it by Friday, I doubt that that is going to happen. Anyway, after spending 7 to 9 hours in front of two computers that last thing I really want to do is write in my live journal.

Yay for the doctors!!
Alright, so I don't really hate the doctors anymore, mainly because they have figured out what has been wrong with my stomach for the past couple of years. I know most of you don't know about my stomach problems, but basically I get really sever heartburn and sometimes makes it difficult to even eat or drink water. I was on medication for about a year, and switched to the medication that caused all those other problems. So I haven't really been on anything for the past couple of months. I actually was feeling fine, until I became stressed with home and work. I was quite sick for a couple of days.
Well I had an Upper G.I. done to look at my G.I. track to see if there was anything that was causing a problem in there, and it turns out that there is.... I have a hiatus hernia. J. and I have concluded that it is of the sliding type. Nothing too serious, but I'm not posting the details here in case some readers don't really want to know details. ;) So basically I have been put back on medication and have to control what I eat. From the list I got, I have been staying away from most of it, except the sugar/chocolate.
So now that I am back on the medication, I am feeling fine again. :)

Alright, so it is a little true, maybe that's why I've been pierced 10 times.

So yesterday was my graduation, it was so much fun to see everyone again. I know it has only been a month, but really I hadn't seen Janeel for most of this year. Those girls are the best of friends anyone could have.
Well now I guess I have to be finding myself a job since I am done school. I know I have a good job, but I don't see it lasting much longer, I am working for my dad. He isn't going to fire me or anything, but my project is almost done.
