February is almost over. Thanks god. February is the month that I tend to become most depressed in. It's so dreary, and it's not as fun as December and January can be. By February, winter has lost its charm.
I froze my ass off Sunday night walking to and from Kool Haus for the Jack's Mannequin concert. For some reason Nick's ride couldn't fathom picking me up at Union and dropping me off, even though it's a two minute drive. But at least a fifteen minute walk. The concert was good but, as usual, I was annoyed by the fans. Mostly girls who bitched about it being too crowded or about any moshing or jumping that occurred. I lost Nick and Kessie in the crowd within the first two Jack's songs so I was by myself for most of the show. Since I am without a camera I didn't get any pictures, but I found these videos (one
) on YouTube. They're not that great but they're memories.
Reading week has been boring. I kind of wish I hadn't looked forward to doing nothing because now that I am I'm going nuts! I work tonight but not until 5:15.
Yesterday was really nice and almost all of the snow melted, but we got it all back this morning. The forecast called for rain but I guess it was too cold. Ron didn't go to work yesterday because we got drunk Tuesday night and stayed up til 4 a.m. when he's supposed to get up for work at 5:30. He said he turned the alarm off, sat up in bed, and realized he couldn't go when he fell asleep sitting up.
We slept in til around noon and then spent most of the afternoon at Kensington Market. We got some burritos for lunch, bought some groceries, and wandered around Queen Street for a while. I bought one of those Bath Bombs from Lush, but for almost $7 I don't really think they're worth it. It fizzes for a few minutes then it's done. I would be more impressed if they released themselves more slowly and then you could enjoy it throughout the whole bath.
I also downloaded the new Hanson CD yesterday, The Walk
. Katie sent me the link, but I would have stumbled across it later on that day had I been more patient. It was released in Japan this week but doesn't come out in Canada until May (of course). I haven't listened to every track the whole way through yet. Like a lot of Hanson's music, it's going to take me a few listens before I can really get into it. So far, Fire on the Mountain
is my favorite track but other than that there isn't anything that really stands out for me.
I gave my two months notice to my landlord last week, and she's already planning on showing the apartment this weekend. I'm going to have to spend a lot of tomorrow cleaning up. Not just cleaning up but cleaning, like scrubbing and mopping and sweeping. The one thing that really sucks is that my vacuum is here at Ron's. Oh well.
Ron and I basically decided last night that I will move in here instead of finding a room. For the summer, anyway. I'm really hesitant to say that it's indefinitely because if we discover we don't like living together then I'd like to leave things open ... but we're pretty much living together now. I'm here every day. The biggest challenge is going to be finding room for the stuff I need to bring. Like my clothes. We'll have to purge some of his stuff and I know he's going to hate it. Or at least invest in some organizational stuff. We shall see how things go. Now I just have to tell my dad. Le sigh.
Oh well. Off to take a shower and then do dishes. Maybe in the reverse order.
