FRUSTRATED!

AHHHH
Ok so I don't know what it but EVERYTHING has been bothering me lately. Maybe it's from the stress of school, or me not really knowing what i'm doing in my life. But I find myself in situations where other people just really ANNOY me.
so warning this is just me venting at the very moment because something small just happened that isn't the biggest deal in the world. But when that small thing keeps happening over and over and over again, and then person doing it to you is completely oblivious to it... or even worse, thinks their actions are totally justifiable. It just get irritating. 
I'm taking a conflict resolution class right now, that i find very interesting by the way. AND it talks a lot about we find things irritating and say it's the person, when in fact it's not the person, it's their behavior, and behaviors are learnt and can be changed depending on the environment and circumstances. 
But seriously in this case it's definitely the PERSON, and if it's not the person, then it's every behavior about them that irritates me.
so I'll admit that I do need to calm down a bit (this is why i'm writing this post so that when i see that person I don't freak out at them) but the only thing i want to do it call them out on everything they've done.
I'm trying to make this super general because it is a public blog. buuut I don't think i can really take anymore of this. I know that you have to extra patient with people especially when you live in a house with 4 other girls. There are ALWAYS people coming over, which is great, keeps life fun right? But I just can't handle when people don't respect things that are mine. Sure come over and hang out with my roommates, But know when you go over to other peoples houses you are guest there!!! don't act like you own the place, DON"T think everything is there for your benefit, it seriously drives me crazy when people feel entitled to things that aren't theirs. ESPECIALLY when it's mine!!!!
SO please when you come over to my house respect my things, don't take things without asking... and then I don't have to be the crazy roommates that locks everything up for fear that people will take it.
Ok i think i'm almost calmed down... although this did also get me a lil more riled up.... oh boy.... Good thing my Parents are coming into town this weekend and I plan on spending little to no time with anyone else!!!

Where did September go???

Ok this month went by WAY to fast! it seems like those midterms and assignments that I thought were forever away are actually here!!

Oh September 2009, what great memories you gave me, Starting with the move up to edmonton which went very smoothly and all the fun welcome back activities. it always sucks buying textbooks and I thought I could get away with not getting them this semester... turns out I was wrong, and have bought them all... but for sure the most memorable experience from September 2009 was..... bed bugs...

So I share a room up in edmonton with another girl (who I absolutely love by the way) and for the first week she slept on the couch in the main room because our room was still so hot, but then it started cooling down and she still wouldn't sleep in her bed, she then started talking about how itchy she was all the time... and long story short, the bed a mere 10 feet away from mine had bed bugs.... how they got there we're still unsure, she had recently (not that recent though) travelled to south america where she stayed in some sketchy hostels that had bed bugs and we think they may have come back that way.... but either way we had to deal with calling of the exterminators... I've never had to deal with bed bugs before and didn't know that it was such an extensive procedure to get rid of them. So we had to take our entire house apart to get ready for the exterminators. The worst part of it all was that we had to take all of our clothes and put them into garbage bags and then wash them all. I live in a house with 5 girls, we have ALOT of clothes... and the worst part of it all was that we had to get exterminated twice, so after taking our house apart, washing all our clothes, putting our house back together, waiting two weeks and then doing it all again!!! needless to say there were definitely tears.
BUT it's all over, we are now bed bug free and looking forward to October! I'm going to try and be better at this blogging thing that month!
