it reminds me that it’s not so bad

Sad title, but it shouldn’t be. I’ve been doing really well lately, it’s just that I finally saw the full video for that Eminem song and now I’ve got it in my head. It’s a good song, sad but good.

Today did a road trip to Toronto with Sandy. It was nice to be back home. Also kind of strange to be merging together part of my Guelph life with my Toronto life. We had lunch with my friend Calum, where I ruthlessly coaxed Sandy into trying some sushi 🙂 She also gawked at his LEGO collection, insane as it is. And we cruised through Rexdale and talked about drive-bys and lowered Honda Civics and cars with the licence plate “TITO”. And stopped in at Toys R’ Us.

Then we drove downtown to the Eaton Centre for a bit of shopping. Actually we didn’t do that much, but Sandy found a really nice stuffed giraffe on sale and bought it. Me, I bought pen refills, dangerous guy that I am :P. The drive down was more exciting, with Sandy white-knuckled and driving and me trying to remember where to go. We made it, but it was a bit stressful on her.

Next we went to my parents’ place for dinner. I was somewhat worried that Sandy’s head would explode. She was somewhat afraid of my parents before, but I think now that’s mostly gone. We had a good time, Sandy also got to meet my sister and her boyfriend, which was great. She really wasn’t too nervous at all and I’m really proud of her.

And then we came home, went to the soccer game, and won 2-0. Woo!

Yesterday Sandy, Emily, Mark, and I finally saw Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, which I am happy to see has a 9/10 rating on IMDB. Go. Run. See it now. Even if you think you don’t like martial arts movies. It’s not a martial arts movie. It’s magic.

Got midterm on Wednesday. Must read 300 pages of boring specification stuff. Will go sleep now though. It’s been a good day.
