Drop Dead Diva

So, I am not the type of person who tunes in every week for a new episode of their favourite TV show but when I stumbled upon the show, "Drop Dead Diva," it had me wanting more!! Seriously. The last show I followed on TV was The Office (which is still one of my fave shows!!!).
I thought I should dedicate a blog post to this particular show because I have been spending most days trying to catch up on the last three seasons on the internet so I can prepare myself for the fourth season (which starts in 2012!! ) It took me about a week and now I'm on episode 7 of the third season, yay me! hahaha...
I should be more focused on other things, but this show is very ADDICTING...and gets my mind off of shitty things going on in my life at the moment.

If you don't know about this show, I will give a brief summary: It is about this very skinny model, Deb, who has the perfect life until she dies in a car accident. She hits the "return" button when she goes to "limbo" and her soul is transferred into another woman's body who happened to have died around the same time Deb died. Deb is now Jane, a larger bodied, highly intelligent lawyer. With this new body, she also gained Jane's brains. This brings a lot of changes for Deb because she has to learn how to move on while working with her "ex" boyfriend (Deb's bf) in the lawfirm as well as meet people that the real Jane knew. Needless to say, Jane encounters alot of challenges which are often humourous and unique. She has to live a totally different life than Deb,s like trying to get over struggles with her bigger body image--something she never encountered before. She also has to fight lawyer battles every day!

Needless to say, this show has a very unusual premise and storyline but it somehow works! I love to see what Deb/Jane has to deal with every episode, while I also hope that things work out for her in the end!!

It is also different seeing a bigger woman as a lead character of a TV series. I think this alone brings a positive message to woman in real life who are larger than Deb's size. Jane really has it all: brains and beauty :)

Applying for Grad School!

Future sexay librarian right here ;D **oldpic**

 Ugh, sooo lately I have been super nervous and stressed about applying for grad school. I need to get a Masters degree to become a full librarian !!! I know to most people they find this hard to believe but honestly librarians have a lot to do and are very knowledgeable about LOTS of things. They are not just there to "shhhhh!" and sign in/out books !!! Unfortunately, this is a very common misconception.  Mostly anyone that have asked me what I wanted to be after University are surprised when I say "I want to be a librarian." The first thing most people say to this is ,"Wow, librarians need to go to University and get a Masters degree? People still read? woww!" ARGH. It's really annoying when people assume this b.s. about librarians~!!!

Applying for grad school requires a long process. I first had to email my profs from last year to ask for references. I'm a really shy person and was very shy in University courses so it took me awhile to finally get the courage to email them!!! Luckily my bf helped me write the emails! Without his help...I would still be thinking too much about it and wouldn't be doing anything! I actually got two replies, which is all I really needed! It would help if I got a third but I'm just lucky two have replied :) Now, the next step is to write an essay/cover letter that explains why I want to be in the program and why I should be accepted, and also a resume, and official school transcripts >.< AHHH.
Not to mention, they also want $125 for applying...

This is HALLOWEEN! 2011

Just as I promised, here is a post about my Halloween adventures--which by the way is my FAVOURITE day of the year! I consider it even better than my OWN birthday !! seriously.

Halloween happened on a Monday this year which didn't really leave room for possibilities so I decided to work on Halloween and spend the day with my amazingly costumed co-workers/friends <3 We got ready together before work and arrived in style (& almost late...oops!) Work was pretty much dead so we spent most of our time going around taking pictures and probably pissing off the little amount of elderly customers who found some of our costumes distasteful. But it was Halloween, so we flaunted what we had on whether it was authentic, cool, and/or slutty! One of my friends who dressed up in just a corset, booty shorts and fishnets overheard one of the customers in the restaurant say, "See, all they do on Halloween is dress like sluts!" LOL I laughed so hard, but my friend found it equally humourous because the point of her costume was to be a "slut" of some kind ;D


There isn't actually a girl version of Thor, so I looked up examples of people's adaptations and made up my own THOR GIRL costume following this girl as inspiration:
I made mostly everything except the hammer, leggings, black shorts, black shirt, cape, wig and black boots. I pretty much made all the accessories, and the helmet took the most time (6 hrs). I also based the helmet design from the oldschool Disney movie, "Adventures in Babysitting." Unfortunately, the helmet had a terrible fate which you will read about down below :(

Anyways, after work we were all driven to our restaurant's corporate Halloween party an hour away and late at night (around 11:30pm) and partied hard...or atleast I did. We danced it up, and went on stage to represent our restaurant's location as we danced to LMFAO'S "Sexy and I Know It" song. It was so funny!! We did a sychronized dance to the "wiggle wiggle wiggle" part of the song. If you don't know this song, look up the video because it's so jokes!!! I also entered the costume contest, but I didn't win which made me really sad but all the contestants were great! One of the girls from our group was downing tequila shots with our female manager...and lets just say one of them ended up on the bathroom floor between the stalls and I unfortunately found her there first. By that time, I was pretty much done because of the many tequila shots she gave me and I didn't know what to do. All I have to say about tequila is: TEQUILA=NEVER AGAIN!!! eff that shit. On the drive home, I pretty much threw up in my handmade helmet but it didn't help that the person driving was "jerky" when lane changing and braked too suddenly most times. I felt really bad that my friends had to sit beside me and watch me do this but damnn those shots got me really good (or bad if you really think about it) :( Besides the shot and drink mixing, I had an amazing Halloween!! Here are some pictures from that day!!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween!!!

Blogger N0ob.

Hey Everyone,

I just wanted to say that I appreciate all the recent comments on my blog. I really dislike that I cannot
instantly reply to each and every comment! Just know, that I read EVERY COMMENT! I get so excited when I read them! Is there an instant way of replying or does blogger just suck in that aspect? haha.

Anyways, I will have a better blog post soon that explains what I did for Halloween (my fave day of the year!) and my recent exciting news !!! :):)

Hope that keeps you in suspense ;D
