Tristen Ballegeer

*sigh* I was looking through my papers when I started to take the nursing course in 2002.... I came across little notes that Tristen used to scribble on my notes... ... man was I dumb... so dumb to let him go.

Maybe I will run into him someday... who knows... I don't know what I would say at that point... Anyways, I know where he works... so it's not like I have slim chances of ever running into him... I just choose not to... because it's not my life... :/ That and I don't stalk! lol

Tristen <3

On Spontaneity

Yes, so I like spontaneous acts. Very much so... but it's crazy when the spontaneous act is the following: signing up for a biology course and a math course that starts THIS Monday! Holy Crap?

Ok... I will be fine, I know it. It's just a lot of time to commit outside of home. Basically my schedule:
M-F work 8-4
M & W 6:30-9:30 biology
T & T 6:30-9:30 math

Talk about a full schedule! Kinda scary, but I wanted to get some courses upgraded before I start college. (I sure hope I get in! :P) In September I think I am going to take a calculus course, physics and chemistry. We'll see how things are.

If I don't get accepted into ACC then I will apply at RRCC, and be able to submit my transcripts of the upgraded courses along with the application. But the thing is... I have a 6 year plan!! (well it may be more...but meh I can call it what i want!) It has to work.. it just has to!! lol

2007-2008 ACC
2008-2010 employed as a nurse while on a waiting list for the joint baccalaureate program (which is currently two years) This time will give me real life experience as a nurse, and will probably make further training somewhat easier.
2010-2013/14? BScN :)

Anyways... that's what I hope... we will see what happens! It's action time since I am hitting some sort of quarter of a century life crisis. pathetic but true!! I am just nowhere near where I want to really be. I don't know why I held onto the application for over a year before mailing it... I guess it wasn't time... but now I am ticking outta time! Ok, not really...but I do wish that I had been through the whole school thing already. Although, I do really love to learn...

So PLEASE letter come!!!! I am obsessive about the mail... what will I do if they say no? Oh man!!!! argggggh!! I just need to know NOW! lol

So, I hope I don't die with all the work and school I will have. From now until June 7, I will have a great opportunity at the championships for pancake ass! Anyways exciting anways!

Why aren't weekends 3 days long?

So, it's been a super slow week at work... soooo outta the ordinary. Just last month I was so stressed out! I am dreading going to work if it is that slow! I mean...I have to LOOK for something to do...there really always is something to do...menial tasks, tasks that normally wouldn't be mine! Things like calling for refill reminders, filing GARGH!! Anyways...

So, on Friday I got a letter in the mail from ACC (Assiniboine Community College). I was expecting it to be their standard "Thank you for your application, we will contact you once it has been processed." Well, uhmmm it was just a receipt for them cashing my cheque. I know this shouldn't really be a big deal... but if they were to mail a receipt couldn't they just mail me a letter saying they are processing my application? I am only saying this, because now the paranoia is setting in... I didn't get accepted! AHHHH...

Ok, I don't really know that I didn't... but it's so nerve racking. If I don't get into this college I am going to try Red River. It's just that I really didn't want to go into the joint baccalaureate program yet. I had a vision of how I wanted to proceed with my nursing career! ARRRG!! Ok... I am just freaking out, because I don't know what to expect. I honestly do have a feeling that it will be no. I don't know why... but I just get this feeling! Oh, I will be crushed... ok, not THAT crushed... it's not like my future is over or anything like that. I am just not getting any younger!

God bless the day that I will never work in restaurant, retail or call centre! Ok...well I have never really worked in a restaurant.... ugh... working with fast food all day is disgusting... I don't care if you are the delivery boy or the manager! I think it totally sucks! :) So, I guess this is why I am going back to school... I want a real career... not something bogus... something I worked HARD to get. Oh and trust me, when I get into school.... I will be busting my ass! I have dicked around once in college... and never again!

Ok... so crossing my fingers!

Oh... and Steph Barda, happy belated birthday! Hope the 1/4 of a century wasn't too difficult to swallow! :0

With Rose Coloured Glasses...

So, Saturday I went to Aura, and ended up getting a's meh... I am sure I can rock it... it's kind of carefree rock... sorta... The colour is awesome though!! I got a dark brown, with auburn chunky highlights. Way hot, I love it! I tipped my hairdresser good, so I don't think he charged me for the haircut... hehe! Gotta love that! I ended up paying like $100 for two colours of dye, a haircut, and style....and the most knee shaking, lip trembling, earth shattering head massage ever! He is sooo goood!! I asked him for 5 more minutes, and he said he will work the conditioner... oh my GOD... it's like his fingers were making love to my scalp!! Ohh!!! I'll stop now! haha! I will try and get some pics up.. love, love the colour! I feel so much better now!

I think in the next few days, I am going to play around with the blog, and make it feel a little more like "home." I would like to change some colours... maybe pink and black? pink and brown? Chang the link colours, maybe add a few permanent pictures... do something with the title??? I really don't know yet.... I will think of something, but first I think I need to change the background. I was playing with some pinks, but didn't see anything that really blew me away... yet!

Is it really only Monday? I am so ready for a weekend already. Work went by fast, but it's at that point where I know I want to leave, and really it's a matter of time... so I get more antsy! I can't wait to one day, come in to work, hand in a 2 week letter and smile! But... I don't even know if I got accepted into the school that I wanted to get into, yet. I sent the application in.. ummm a week ago? Of course, I haven't heard anything yet, but I won't lie and say that I haven't been "looking" for mail! Of course, I do know that the first mailing I get from them is "We have received your application and will contact you once we have processed it" kind of letter. Yet, it gives me some kind of hope.

Meh... off to wash some clothes for tomorrow's day at the cube farm!

Shirts I want:
"I know it's only Rock & Roll...but I like it"
"Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap"
"Love is for Losers"

Ahh.. Friday, sweet, Friday!

On Fridays, I don't waste any time getting out of work! It's so nice getting off at 4, as opposed to the 5ers! Sorry... I rather wake up early, and leave early! I don't even understand the rationale of "sleeping in an hour longer!" I much rather have my day end at 4!! I was considering talking to management ab0ut starting a half hour earlier so I could get out at 3:30! I don't think I will though, as I doubt they would agree! Work gets in the way of my real life! :`(

So... I need to go for a haircut this weekend! I am debating whether I should dye my hair. I really would like to, but not sure if I want to spend the $$! There is a tall pair of boots that I really want to get... so it's one or the other for "frivilous" purchases! What do I want more... who am I kidding I want it all! I'll see what happens as they both cost well over $100!

Ahh... time to go and enjoy the weekend!

The Intelligence Thing.

Ok... so after taking that silly little quiz for IQ, I was kind of bothered that I had 95%! I wasn't even average!! I just KNEW I was above average! :P

I went to an exclusive genius' club test thingy... I did two tests. One was to see if you qualify for the club, and I don't. But at least I scored a 111. That is very close to the above average line, and I am quite happy.

So then, I decided to take the test that was for people who were "above average" in intelligence, and I scored a 119!

What does this prove... ? Well, one thing for sure... sometimes the simplest is the most difficult!

Random Questions

So, I got a list of random questions in my email.... a chain letter type of dealy... I am not keen on replying but thought it would be neat to use in my b... my bl.. uhmm here!

What was your favorite childhood toy?
well, I really loved atari (pole position!!) but I think nintendo is up there... do you remember the power pad? We would play it on the second floor of a 100 year old house, my parents would spazz! I really liked my little ponies too... and really anything girly.
What is your favourite dating memory?
I have so many great dating memories! I have spent time with some really cool guys!
The most recent BEST DATE ever, was flying to Toronto staying at a $500 a night hotel, just to see U2 at the Air Canada Centre! How f*****g cool is that! That was pretty amazing!
If you could take a trip to any place in the world, where would you go?
If someone told me "pack your bags we're going to a random place"....I would say Europe... not just any one place, but all of it... have backpack will travel!
What would you rather do, give a speech in front of 200 people or bungee jump?
Definitely the speech! I think I have seen too many "video clips" to ever try bungee jumping!
What three words best describe you?
Passionate, emotional and impatient.
What are your three favourite movies of all time?
The Usual Suspects, Pirates of the Carribean and Pulp Fiction.
What is your dream job?
I would love to be some kind of scientist. Doesn't matter what kind... preferebly a biologist, archaeologist or anthropologist. I have a customer who is a scientist, a female, and I have sent her medications to Antarctica. McMurdoch Station! You should see the address. I guess it's just an air force base, as she works for the American Government. It's so intriguiging and I am so jealous!
If you had to live in a different province, which would you choose?
I think it would be Alberta. Only one tax!
Which would be harder for you to give up, chocolate or coffee?
I think the answer to that would be chocolate!
What job has been your favorite?
Believe it or not, when I worked telemarketing at a placed called Telespectrum, loving referred to us as Telerectum! I was 16, the pay was AWESOME for it's time... like 8.50 an hour to start moved up to 9.50 after probabtion. I was sooo good at it though that I would come home with $700 cheques at like 16! Crazy! We were to work only 2 Saturday's a month, and I volunteered pretty much every Saturday and the occasional Sunday! The bonus' there were wild! Plus, I met tons of cool, cool people!
What living person, other than family members, do you admire most?
I really admire anyone who stands up for the rights of another person. Any humanitarian really... I definitely think Bono is one.
What do people often misunderstand about you?
I am not as open as you think, I am really a deep, deep person but I keep a lot of things to myself. I don't think there is anything wrong with that, I just don't think a lot of people are on "my wavelength" if that makes any sense.
How important is kissing to you in our relationship?
Sooo important!!! I love kissing... I could do it all day, all night.. as long as you are good at it. I have tried to teach someone, and it didn't work because I don't know if you can really teach someone. But I love how kissing leads to other things! It's so erotic!
What musician, living or deceased, would you like to meet?
Eddie Veder, Steven Tyler (although he held my hand at a concert!), John Lennon, Bon Jovi... I could go on....
Ok, I don't want to answer anymore, this is getting boring! :P

Just a thought:
I find it very irritating when people constantly complain about people in their lives. Suck it up! If I have a "personal vendetta" with someone I don't go on about it, on a daily basis! It just gets repetitive and old, and really makes me wonder what kind of person you are! I do think you need to get your frustrations out... if you want to complain about someone, go ahead... but please, when it becomes petty... shut the hell up! I can't stand that sort of stuff!

Critical thinking... start young...

Your IQ Is 95

Your Logical Intelligence is Below Average

Your Verbal Intelligence is Above Average

Your Mathematical Intelligence is Genius

Your General Knowledge is Below Average
So, I took this test and I guess I have no common sense. I really kind of have to laugh...


Every time you guys leave, it's like a piece of my heart and a piece of my soul go with you. I can feel the life drain from my eyes and pool at my feet.

I love you to the moon, see you soon.... xoxox

The Queen of England would say it's dandy...

Moving my blogging from MySpace to here.... why? I don't really know. MySpace just seems like a huge meet market. Really I am blogging for myself.... it's true! It's not like I "invite" people to come see or even tell people I have a "blog." ugh... blog is such a dirty word.

Anyways, I have done it! I finally sent in that application to go back to school. It has been sitting here about a year now as I hemmed and hawwed. I had to re-write my entrance letter as it was outdated. I applied for the July 2007 start date for Nursing. I took nursing before, and got quite a ways through. I am so outta the loop though that I have decided to take everything over. Fresh start if you know what I mean. (Hey is it just me, or do I type faster than this program can support? That's kind of irritating.)

So in 2 weeks I should get a letter saying that my letter has been received and that they will be reviewing it. How grandiose! Well, I guess it's better than wondering if the letter has been received. I don't know what will happen... but I guess if I don't get in I will be applying to Ed... I would love to teach sciences to high school students... madness I know... but hey it's not math! mwahaha!

Speaking of math, I better start practicing my fractions and decimals, because if I remember correctly you need a 95% in med math. I know there are certain things that will be easier for me from working at the pharmacy. It's reducing fractions, making them into decimals and uhmmm I think adding and subtracting them. I know that multiplying fractions is a cinch. Algebra I am better at than fractions and decimals. :P~

If I get accepted into the program I am planning on taking the anatomy & physiology course through distance. Man, I love science... I am a science geek.

Anyways I am really excited! :) Crossing my fingers!
