Hello out there, it’s on the air,

It’s Oscar night tonight!

And coincidentally it’s also hockey night for the city of Vancouver as the Vancouver Canucks have a game vs the San José Sharks.

So far the score is 1-0 Canucks for the afternoon and the awards for best Original Screenplay and best Adapted Screenplay have been given out!

Josh Singer and Tom McCarthy’s Spotlight as well as Charles Randolph and Adam McKay’s The Big Short have won respectively.

I will admit I have seen neither of these movies but as an aspiring writer, I really ought to check them out!

It will be a great learning experience!

Expect more updates soon!

UPDATE: Mad Max Fury Road has won 6 of its 11 nominations so far you have no idea how THRILLED I am for them!

Also Alicia Vikander is amazing
and has won Best Supporting Actress omfg.

UPDATE: LEONARDO OH MY GOD

FINALLY!!!

on the downside the Canucks lost but otherwise FINALLY

LEO

Last Update before bed:

Congratulations to all those who were nominated for and won in their respective categories and most especially to the crew members of Mad Max Fury Road for winning 6 of its 10 nominations.

Good night, rest well and thanks for reading WordPress!

So it’s been a while…

It’s been a while and life has been rather busy.

The last time we spoke was last week and I had just finished my walk up in Steveston.

I still haven’t done my actual Job Dialogue thing at work which is still kind of nerve-wracking.

It’s still not something I’m too terribly worried about though.

I also never did end up finishing that scholarship application.

Turns out the deadline was last Tuesday and not last Wednesday like I had anticipated.

It’s upsetting because it’s an opportunity lost but at least it gives me a chance to try again next year.

Maybe it wasn’t meant to be.

I had a pretty crazy work week last week too.

I’m learning how to close now which is rather interesting.

It’s exhausting but I manage.

I like learning new things.

Also spent the majority of yesterday eating which was nice.

I went out to Steveston Village again, along with a friend of mine named Clara.

She’s really sweet.

Here are the highlights of the past week.

Fish and Chips for breakfast, fish and chips for dinner and time spent with people who are important to me.

It was fun!

Here’s to hoping this week is just as fun.

Thanks for reading WordPress!

It’s a beautiful day!

And I can’t stop myself from smiling.

Ten points to whoever can tell me what the name of that song is.

It’s Monday. And it’s my weekend, which is nice.

Who needs to do errands when it’s nice and sunny today?

Not me, that’s for sure.

I mean yes, there are still dishes to do and laundry to wash and a pair of fraying jeans to repair but who needs to do them?

That being said I should probably do the dishes.

I never do the dishes.

Shit.

I think I’ll make up for it by vacuuming.

Or by ACTUALLY doing the dishes after dinner tonight.

Knowing my mum, she’ll probably end up doing the dishes when she gets home.

So much for being the world’s best daughter.

I’ll figure it out.

Eventually.

Doing the dishes won’t kill me.

In the meantime, expect pictures of a wonderful view later.

Until next time WordPress.

Job dialogues and nervousness

Dear WordPress,

I have a job dialogue to get done this week.

I’d say I’m not nervous but that would be a lie.

I’m nervous. Most definitely. But the odd thing is, this is the most calm I’ve felt whilst feeling nervous at the same time.

Of course, when you read it, that makes no sense.

But I am feeling calm.

This is going to be fine.

Yes, job dialogues can be nerve wrecking but they can be good for you.

All you have to do is…well. I don’t know.

It all seems so easy now to brush it aside, but I just… I don’t feel nervous.

Not too nervous anyways.

If there was anything drastic that needed changing, I would have been spoken to ages ago.

So everything will be fine.

In fact, I am ten times more nervous for this scholarship application that I need to finish by next Wednesday.

I get to write a 400 (or less) word essay about how to change representation in the film industry.

It’s gonna be hard, especially since it’s gonna be addressing the amount of diversity there is in film and TV right now.

Like, you’ve got shows like Orange is the New Black and Sense which features queer relationships and the musical Hamilton who has cast people of many different backgrounds as people who are historically white (which is FANTASTIC, by the way. The America of now is full of many different races, have the diverse population tell this story.) which is fantastic to see, but it’s still not quite there yet.

I just don’t know what to say.

How do I convince people that we must give everyone (no matter what race) a chance?

It’ll be hard.

But I’m sure I’ll manage.

Thanks for reading, word press.

Consider the following: Moms

Have you ever had those feelings where you spend time with your mother and you just think to yourself: “Gee, my mum sure deserves better?”

Like, sure, we have Mother’s Day every single year and Christmas and their birthdays to give them presents but year after year, I feel like whatever it is that I give my mum isn’t quite enough.

It’s never enough and I hate it. I hate that I can’t give my mum whatever she needs to be happy.

Have you, the listeners (readers) ever felt you owe your mother ten times more than what she deserves?

I don’t know.

Just, ever since my dad passed away four years ago, my mum has been working so hard to keep a roof over my family’s head.

She even had to deal with me struggling with depression for nearly a year and a half afterwards.

I honestly owe her a lot for having to raise me and my sister.

It just sucks that I feel I can’t give her everything she deserves and more.

 

It’s raining men!

Hallelujah!

It’s not actually raining men today but it’s wet and damp and oh my God,  where has my weekend gone?

Also, I overslept today, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, I just missed my yoga class at 8 am today.

And I woke up like 3 hours too early too.

I mean, it’s too late to reminisce now but still.

There’s still a part of me that’s upset that I didn’t wake up in time again for this.

Either way, I am up and going to the gym which is most definitely better than nothing so…

I also woke up from the weirdest dream today.

I had a dream that Keegan Michael Key (Key and Peele, Whose Line is it Anyway) told me I was doing everything wrong while I was at the gym.

Woke up kind of upset which isn’t ever fun, especially when you’ve already got self image issues.

But the most important thing is: I am going to the gym today.

I might not lose much weight between now and the end of next month but I’ll still be going to the gym.

And nothing against Keegan Michael Key by the way, he’s great. I’m sure he’s a nice guy.

He just happened to be at the other end of my dream last night.

Thanks for reading WordPress. I appreciate it.

Here comes the sun!

So, it’s sunny today. It’s never sunny on my day off but to have it be sunny today.

It’s nice.

I probably should go out and do something nice today.

Something kind. I’ve always been described as kind but most days I’m not feeling it.

It’s been something that I’ve been thinking about lately. There’s an article that I’ve read that said something like “If you have ever got rude customers ever and you work in retail, it means that you have always been that rude customer to other people.”

And I hate the idea that I’ve always been that asshole customer to retail workers.

That’s not to say I can’t be rude to people if I want to be, but I just don’t like the idea of having been so rude to retail workers that they’ve had a bad day because of me.

Makes me wonder if there’s ever such thing as being kinder and being more humble.

well. I must start practicing.

This has been Adrienne speaking and thank you for reading my journal!
