why bother putting a date on passports if they don’t mean anything?

Posted on February 3, 2006. Filed under: Uncategorized |

I heard on the news yesterday that you have to have your passport renewed about 8 months before the actual date on it. How ridiculous is that? I’m just confused as to why they say it’s valid for 5 years if they don’t back it up. I could understand if you were traveling within a month or two of the expiration date, but eight seems a little excessive. It also means that I have to get a new passport by the time I go to the UK in September because my passport expires in January. Or I may be able to squeak through (or just use the UK passport I suppose, but then I won’t get a stamp, nor will I be allowed necessarily to come back to Canada…hmm…there’s a glitch in that plan). Can anyone explain to me the reasoning behind this?

okay, i really need to move back out

Posted on February 3, 2006. Filed under: Uncategorized |

I kind of can’t believe that I’ve now been back at home for almost 2 years since finishing school and I really, really need to get out of here. The problem is that I really, really don’t want to rent anywhere and, well, unless you know of a house I can buy in the GTA for roughly $100,000.00 then I’m stuck here. And sure the fam is part of what’s driving me crazy and also not having my own space, and feeling like I’m missing out on that whole living on your own thing that I used to do so well (I kind of miss having my housemates around sometimes), it’s just so beyond time to move out. I think I’ll have to start a fundraising campaign. I wonder if I can talk people into donating to my cause. Haha. That’ll be the day. I’m just turning into this terrible person when interacting with everyone in here and I really think that to save my relationship with my family I should leave and get some space. I guess the vacation to Arizona is coming at a very perfect time. Sorry, not very interesting, but I feel better after venting.

the superstore is where it’s at

Posted on February 3, 2006. Filed under: Uncategorized |

The place to be is apparently the new superstore. I just went to pick up some groceries tonight and saw one close friend from highschool (though I didn’t talk to her…oops), 2 of the most annoying girls from highschool (together and pushing baby carriages — with babies in them!), some of my little brother’s hoodlum friends, a guy I used to babysit, and my uncle! Yikes! This was all within 15 minutes. So either I know too many people in this town or the town really is staying small despite all the ugly rows of crappy housing going up by the minute.
