Melissa and I worked out. As usual we look gross. I have developed a deep deep love for the U of L gym, and will miss it when I move to calgary.....
My shirts are actually getting smaller from all of my working out. I think they are supposed to be getting looser but oh well. You can't win 'em all. I put on my favourite Che shirt, and the sleeves were very very tight. Let me flex to demonstrate for you.
These 2 got married. So happy for them!
And we got a photoshoot out of the deal.
I also got to be #2 with this guy. I have never laughed so much. Highlight of #2, having him dip me while we were dancing, and him almost falling over, because he was so inebriated. If only he knew my name. And he wasn't quite so obnoxious.
We went here for the long weekend. I love family holidays. They are my absolute favourite. If/When I grow up, I'm going on road trips all the time with my family.
While on the shopping holiday I bought 5 pairs of shoes for $81.30 . I'm very proud of them. I saved $283.70.
I worked today at my real job. And this is what I had to deal with. They do not pay me enough.
Ok maybe it's more like this.
I've been watching a lot of olympic coverage. It's also my favourite topic of conversation with my patients, and I bring it up as often as possible. I absolutely love the games. Maybe a little too much. I remember when they had the 2004 Olympics in Athens, and I watched 18 straight hours in the cabin in Waterton one day. I don't even think I went to the bathroom or ate food. I probably left Ross high and dry at the Big Scoop too, now that I think about it, because I sure didn't go to work that day. I could quote all of the Tim Horton's commercials perfectly by the end of those games.
Maybe I've spent too much time in front of the TV, but I think these two kind of look the same. What do you think?
Wang Meng - gold medal winner in women's short track 500m.
Rupert Grint as Ron Weasley - stud of the Harry Potter movies.
So i went to see another movie with melissa tonight. Tonight it was "when in rome", last night it was "dear john", tomorrow who knows. All I know is that I'm addicted to the fro-yos at the movie concession, and will probably go every night until someone stops me. I get this low-fat mix with banana, mango, and strawberries. YUM! I'm turning into a regular, and by tomorrow I think I'll just say, "give me the usual", and they will know what i'm talking about. Who knew you could buy heaven for just $4.69.
Anyways, so I was driving home by myself after the movie, when I saw this sign and it hit me. I hadn't been to the new wendy's yet. So I did a u-turn, and headed for the wendy's, and the next thing I knew tears were streaming down my face. Now these weren't happy tears, these were straight up sad tears. First, I felt guilty for going to wendy's at midnight. Bad bonnie bad. Second, many many memories of wendy's in edmonton washed over me. (me enjoying a snack wrap in edmonton surrounded by my besties...can't you just feel the happiness?)
And I realized that I have no clue who will go on burger runs with me in Calgary.....and now i'm totally second guessing this move. I was completely fine with everything, until I realized that it takes a special person to understand my love of wendy's and fast food, and I don't think those type of people exist in Calgary. And now I'm worried.
To make matters worse, I pulled up the window to order a spicy chicken go wrap.....AND THEY WERE OUT OF CHICKEN. If you thought I was emotional before, well this just put me over the edge. so I had to get a jbc. I mean, jbc's are good and everything, but they aren't a spicy chicken go wrap. And the prices down here are $0.20 more than in Edmonton. I know I'm not a starving student anymore, but this might just break Dr. Leishman's bank if he has to pay that extra 20 cents every time. I just don't know what to do.
Then I came home, after my depressing Wendy's run, and ate burnt french fries. What a night. (and i think someone took my wisdom teeth out without telling me......)
So nothing is official, until it's on the blog. And I thought it was time to share this with the world. I am moving away from Edmonton after 4 years. Sniffle, sniffle I know. And moving to Calgary.
Some of you may be thinking, "Bonnie, how could you leave me?" Rest assured, that you will still see me on a fairly regular basis. This I am quite sure of. I have been doing a considerable amount of thinking (a novel idea), and I think it's time for me to move on with my life, and see what else the world has to offer. That sounds really trite I know but it's true. Now that I'm done school, I kinda wanna see what else is out there. It will be a completely different social scene (this could turn out badly), and there are better job opportunities for me.
I feel like I am stuck in a rut in Edmonton, and that change would probably be really good for me, which will not be easy. I really do love my Edmonton friends! (You guys are freakin amazing)
I can count on one hand the number of people that I know in Calgary. (and no josh - this isn't my man hand) This move is scaring the crap out of me. I can't believe I'm really doing it.
Which means, Bontron is going to have to bring her game face in order to make this work.
BYE Edmonton You have been very very kind to me.
HELLO calgary Be nice to me.
Wish me luck! Because let's be serious. Not everyone can handle the ridiculousness of this girl.
I figured with our TV (and modeling) debut we should be prepared for how to keep climbing the ranks. This is the list I found on Wikipedia.
1 - Have a personality, any personality. Without this, forget the rest. Check 2 - Work on your singular talent, whether it's cooking, acting, singing, writing, whatever. Do we actually have talent? Other than always being ridiculously good looking. 3 - Try to reach the widest possible audience. Homemade saucy videos and raunchy reality shows seem to be a good ticket. (Not everyone will be invited, but if you are - you're still not there yet). Youtube here we come. 4 - Get the best agent you can. Don't "jump into bed" with just any, but when you find a good one be loyal. That way you'll share the same interest - YOU. I nominate Shtoon. She knows how to get things done. 5 - Invest your own money with a Record Label to release an album starring you (it's called co-production). I'll call Dr. Leishman on this one. 6 - Get a good publicist. You must be on front pages or inner covers. Always get a full page somewhere or a page where your mug dominates. (If you don't get this, forget the rest). What in the heck is the difference between a publicist and an agent? 7 - Start anywhere and smile. Work your way up in circulation. I think we have this one down pat. First Britney, and now this. 8 - Participate in cameos. Lend your face, your voice or both. Ads, Charity announcements and Feature appearances known to help. Let's look into making a church video. This will increase our circulation. 9 - Monitor your popularity with polls and participation in Awards. (If you picked a good agent, s/he will help here big time). ( I have been checking youtube every 20 minutes....) And here's the one tip they gave Have a website, blog or both and network them.
Am I letting this go to my head?
Or more importantly, should I focus on modeling or acting?
(b) I think I'm addicted to postsecret. I spent a good hour in a bookstore the other day reading one of the postsecret books, and I keep checking their blog everyday, even though I know they only update it on Sundays.
I went to the gym with Melissa today...and as per usual, we worked out....hard. I was sweating my brains out. I actually think my IQ is dropping. And so when I got home, I was more than happy to smell my mother's stew coming from the kitchen since I had gone straight from work to the gym and was famished. So I walked into the kitchen and had a bowl of this.
And then I discovered that my mom had also made this!
I should make this very clear. I'm not actually going to the gym to lose weight. I'm going so that I can eat what I want, and not feel guilty. So tonight at dinner, I paid no heed to anything, and ate 3 bowls of stew, and had 4 pieces of toast. Count it. 4 pieces of freakin texas toast. My mother informed me later that I ate 800 calories of toast. It's a good thing I went to the gym today. I'm just hoping that at some point, a little guilt sets in.
So I've never gone to the gym. Ever. Like seriously ever. When I was in second year, I'd always hear about Cathy and Melissa going to this thing called " the gym", but I never really understood what "working out" meant until last week. Bi-ped gave me some serious inspiration when I read a post she did about the goals that she had set for herself, and it made me realize that I have a lot of free time and should put it to good use. So to the gym I went with Cathy and Brittney. And did it ever hurt. We went 5 times last week. It was awful. But it's getting easier. And now that I'm in lethbridge I have Melissa. Who is an amazing workout partner. She should be charging me money to work out with her. I bought a pass to the u of l gym for the month and we intend to use it. Wish me luck on this whim of mine and hope it sticks. Check out melissa's blog for more details and pictures.
On a side note.
Lethbridge just got it's 2nd wendys. And it's about 30 seconds from my parents house. I haven't been yet. And I'm seriously contemplating the idea to avoid it all together. Good idea? Bad idea? Melissa lives on the west side so she can't stop me easily. But it's like what they always tell you at church... When put in certain situations you should know ahead of time how you will react and what you will do. Help!!
On another side note.
I went to work for my dad today which consisted of me on a date with a paper shredder. It was magical for the first part of the date until the 2 hour mark hit. Turns out a paper shredder will be a crappy date and then I didn't want to be there anymore. So I did what I do on all bad dates.
I called my mom.
And she drove out to pb to get me which saved me from an awkward end of date hug and then my mom and I went shopping in lethbridge together. It was wonderful and my afternoon was salvaged. Moral of the story. Paper shredders may seem like a lot of fun but once you get to know them better.... You find out that they aren't.
(I did this from my phone - so don't judge any spelling mistakes)
