Well I just got done watching Shay Carl's vlogs about going on his diet which started yesterday, friday. And I have decided to join in, I am not going to do the same exact as he but I am going to cut out the cola's, beer, CHIPS (my addiction), junk food in general. I am going to drink water and eat fruits and veggies mostly (cooked) and I am also going to join in with his "more then you were doing before" work out plan and I am going to do some push ups and crunches and jog around the block.

I am doing this because lets put it out there after high school I stopped my physical activity and now I have a gut no longer the six pack I had before. So I think I am going to put pictures up on here of my progress over the next 20 days.

Tomorrow we will get down to brass tacks and tackle this diet head on. LETS DO THIS.

Ello ello,

Ok, so I just read my last blog from a long time ago. I haven't been on here in a long time. Anyway I was reading it and I thought I sounded stupid and I feel that I sent the wrong message. the message I wanted to send was Ukuleles are a fun and exciting instrument to play. I love playing my concert ukulele, and I love playing it for my friends and family, the only thing I can't stand is when people that play "normal" instruments or "mainstream" instruments, I guess that sounds ok, like guitar, drums, bass, trumpet, violin, piano, stuff of the sort, those people not all of them infact I am sure its probably a small percent. But any way they look down on instruments like the ukulele that aren't as popular. I don't know, thats how I see it.

But anyway, I plan on getting back on here more often because I want to. I know nobody follows me but I will write on here anyway for my imaginary friends. Umm, I mean, nevermind I'm already down that road no turning back now. For all of you out there friends I will write as often as I can.

I also plan on, tonight (it is 1:30 in the am) working on stopping my procrastination habit. It has become a real problem. I have three papers due tomorrow at 9:30, luckily they don't have to be super long and I can get them done but this allnighter shtuff has to stop. I am ruining myself.

Plans for the future.
1. get a new computer I am thinking studio 15 my real friend loves his and he highly suggests getting it.
2. get a digital camcorder, I dont know what kind I will have to look into it.
3. maybe actually start a vlog maybe or create videos of my uke skills (which are nothing like most people on youtube, I am a big pile of poop compared to them but i love to play anyway).
4. become more structured. i need to or i will fail at life.

thank you all and much love,

Sorry for my absence. But I have been thinking lately, dangerous I know. But listen. Here is the thing. UKULELES ARE NOT NOVELTIES.

They are not some joke insturment that should be taken as if "Oh he plays the ukulele isnt that nifty." If that is how you look at it then fuck you, you obviousely dont take music serious.

Sorry I kinda flew off the handle there but it just makes me so mad when I tell people I play ukulele and they laugh like its some kinda joke instrument. The ukulele sounds more beautiful then guitar or just as beautiful as piano, or harp, or something of the sort.

basically I told my friends boyfriend we will call her K, and her boyfriend R. They play in a band together some indy band pretty good. So I go hang out with them one night and R and myself are talking about music and i bring up that i play ukulele and he says "thats pretty neat I mean it seems like a novelty thing, thats pretty neat though."

WHAT THE FUCK if i had said your music is mediocre he would have taken offence right? RIGHT. but he can insult the instruments i play as novelty. i am just kinda pissed.


I play it because i like to make people happy with the music i play and i am serious about the instrument.

All i am saying is don't insult my instruments or interests in music, i dont do that to you.

Much Love

OMG! So tonight I had my first Practicum II class, and oh my gosh I am freaking out about it. basically I have 2 weeks to observe 35 hours and teach one lesson to a kindergarten. I am not looking forward to the next two weeks. Basically I am freaking out about how much work I have to do in the next 4 weeks, which happens to be a fuck load.

Much love

I need to start reading again. I stopped for about a month and I guess it's because I read like 10 books from the start of the new year. Maybe that's not a lot to you but it is to me. My next book that I am about to read/started to read is The Restaurant At The End Of The Universe by Douglas Adams. He is a very funny righter and makes some amazing observations about the human race that are just astounding and true. When reading this book it is, in my opinion, an insult to him if you aren't pondering these observations. Basically, there is a little bit of everyone in his books. If you haven't read any books in the Hitch Hikers Series I think you should, at least read the first book Hitch Hikers Guide To The Galaxy.

After that I think I am going to read the second book in the Sookie Stackhouse series so people stop asking me if i read it or not. In my opinion the T.V. show is way better than the first book because there is more conflict and more character interaction. The book is basically stream of consciousness and I really don't like that type of book, so we will see how the second novel fares and go from there.

After that I don't know because I have a lot of books to read and school on top of that. Wish me luck

Much Love

new idea and work...

OK so I am going to blog every weekday and do one post on Monday about the weekend so there you have it.

Now what happened this past weekend. Dinner Friday with friends then a card game I won 85 dollars at then sleep because of work the next day. I am going to skip Soccer Reffing for now and get back to it in a bit. Saturday night I was supposed to go see Mad Sweet Pangs play at Deer Park but I got drunk with my Ma and Brother on some wine in stead. Sunday was Mothers Day and I played a song I made up on the spot for my Grandma on my uke. Then I went to The Sleeping show and had a blast.

Now the Reffing fiasco.

OK so I had to be at work before 8 because my first game was at 8. I had a bad game, I missed calls it was just a mess for me I know that. Well one of the coaches is a co-worker of mine, meaning she is also a ref for the place I work (not saying where I work so they don't suffer any more disrespect or embarrassment). Well she has a lot more years of soccer reffing then I do and she knows whats going on. She was very mad about the game because I was doing a bad job. Well the way she handled the situation was completely unprofessional. She came over to the pavillion where the other refs sit wating for their next match and parents come to sit and if they have questions ask them. So there I sit with two other refs talking and there are two parents and a child behind us talking. This Coach/Ref/Co-worker of mine comes up obviously upset about the game and decides to nit pick about everything I am doing wrong and the other refs are doing wrong. She laid into me about the game I just reffed saying its about the safty of the kids and I get that the she starts attacking our attire, (us being the other two refs sitting there and myself) from our shorts to our jewelry to the time pieces we use to keep the time of the match. Now I can take this criticizem it will make me a better ref, what I can't take is how she went about handleing the whole deal. It showed disrespect to myself the two other refs and the place I work for. It showed disrespect because she yelled at us infront of parents, I wouldnt have a problem if she had pulled us aside and talked to us.

So I get an email from my boss today asking me to call him. So I do. He wants my side of what happened and I tell him everything (there is alot more but that is basically the jist) and he agrees with me. I told him I didn't want to involve him and I was going to try and talk this out with the women but she didn't want to go that route she wanted to email my boss/HER boss (her and I are equals she has no authority over me at our place of work) and complain about me. So I tell him I was going to talk to her and he said I still can and also he agrees with me and she is an explitive. Which I totally agree with. And come Saturday I am going to tell this B word what the hell is up.

So there you have it. I am alittle calmed down to know that my boss agrees with me but I won't be happy until she knows that she was very disrespectful and owes myself the other two refs i was with and the place we work for an apology.

Much love

To Tell you the truth I have been staring at the damn computer screen all day finishing an exam and I don't really want to blog but I challenged myself so here I go.

I am done with this damned semester so far my grades are B, B, B+, A. I am waiting on one last grade which I don't know when I will get it. I don't even really have a freaking break from school I start summer session this week coming up, I start tuesday which is the 12th. to tell you the truth I just want to sit back with my ukulele drink a beer and maybe sleep BUT NOOOOO. I don't get to do that I work all day tomorrow from something like 11 to 3 or something and then I am going to a concert (Valencia (and I am not down about that)) after work. the i work all day saturday from 8 to 5 which sucks then after that I have this feeling that I am doing something but right now if the weather is nice I am going to buy a 12 pack of Sam Adam's and grab my Elora and sit in my back yard and relax.

Hell I still have this Banana & Pineapple song to write. I mean I have some really good ideas it's just finding the time to actually sit and write it is hard to do.

I think that blog about Global Warming is coming soon....
Maybe next week.

Much Love
