Man oh man, didja know an alligator's brain isn't all too
big compared to its body. We've been digging at its head
for 45 minutes...pulled off its jaw hoping to get underneath
only to find more bone, tried to get in from behind only to
find more bone, then pulled out its eyes only to find more
muscle and fattie tissue. UGH!!
Oh yeah. finally heard from UBC. yay. also surprised to hear
from McGill. It's a good day. 2 more IB exams...
May 13, 11:05pm
Finally, an update. Just had a Concert at Hamber. Boy what a good way
to spend a few hours, in a WARM gym full of bands from schools all over
vancouver. Some really cool school bands out there... yours truly
IB exams are almost over. C'mon guys, just math and physics left! And
after Friday, FREEDOM!!!
This week, the Dissection Club gets the honor of taking apart a
freshly frozen ALLIGATOR which was graciously donated to us from
UBC...of course, it was slightly used; the lungs were removed for educational
purposes. Oh well, we still have the head and all of its other organs!
Did you know the alligator has a 4 chambered heart, unlike its reptile
relatives, which only have a 3 chambered heart? Kinda makes you go
For those of you who don't know, I have acquired a drum set from the brother
of a friend of mine, Allan Ho. Thanx Allan. As well as the
drums, I have taken a new interest in that old guitar of mine. In these
past 3 days, I have learned the chords to Glycerine (Bush), When I
Come Around (Green Day), The World I Know and December (Collective Soul),
Smells Like Teen Spirit (Nirvana), and All Over You (Live). Learning
neww stuff every hour, when I feel like it. Whoa. Once you're introduced
to the basic (power) chords, all you hafta do is figure out the
bass line, and fill in the rest of the chords. It's just so simple!
Found out your status from UBC yet? Well, if you haven't, and you'd
like to find out whether you've been accepted into the faculty of your
choice, call: 280-8228. You must know your 8-digit student ID
number in order to access your info. Well, best of luck to y'all.
Some happy people include: Bryan,
and Patrick who have both
received unconditional admission to the faculties of science and arts
respectively. Good job guys. I'm thoroughly impressed.

Woo, like the IBer's, I have enough of my own studying to
do. Oh yeah, I'd also like to mention the fact that the
provincials sight has changed to
I was looking through some of the old chem provincials. Hah.

One big huge honkin' Happy Birthday to my bro
Jon who happens to be one
of the most unhappiest moods at the moment. Y'see, he's still
sulking over that dreaded letter from yesterday. Gosh, I wish there
was just something I could do... Oh yeah, while I'm at it with the
birthdays, happy birthday to Mabel Sze (some girl in gr.10) who
happens to have the same birthdate as my little bro. Coincidence?
April 30, 8:30pm
I don't know what's wrong with you IB people (who go through the
selecting process of your future disciples). First you reject me,
now, you've rejected my brother. I hope you all know how much of
a mistake you've made by doing so...twice now. What's wrong with
you people?! You could have at least corrected your first mistake
by letting him in. Jon can change, honest to God. I did.
I never thought of myself turning into the person I am now. I've
changed quite a lot since Grade 11.
Maybe you're too blind to see that; or you're too stubborn to learn
April 30, 6:45pm
The technolympics results
are out. To see them, click
here. Have a nice day ;)
April 28, 8:00pm
Okay, that's it! I've had enough! I've had enough of all
the coffee drinkers out there. You know what your problem
is? You know why you've become dependent on coffee? It's
because you can't get enough sleep! And you wanna know why
you don't get enough sleep?! It's not because you have
Too much work! It's because you CAN'T SCHEDULE
YOUR TIME PROPERLY!!
Okay, I'm chilled out now. I just can't stand to see ppl
addicted to coffee, that's all. And those Starbucks Latte (?)
commercials...they're sooo DUMB! I've had enough of listening
to that idiotic airhead with her mind drifting in euphoria
over just a cup of that "smooth Starbucks Latte". Sheesh,
your life isn't gonna get better just because of some
creamy caffeinated drink. Get real already.
April 25, 6:30pm
Just finished Technolympics! Woohoo! Although i'm quite
disappointed by the fact that we didn't place in the top 3 in
ANYTHING, it was quite a learning experience. I learned that
if you're ever near the top, but not at the top, no-one
knows, or cares. Congrats to Chanson Brumme who received
a scholarship from Kwantlen this afternoon from the scholarship
exam. I learned that sometimes you can work your butt of
on something and then when the time comes for you to do that something,
that something just blows up in your face. I learned that there's
the possibility that there may be a hint of intelligence in this head
of mine. And most importantly, I learned that whatever I accomplish
in highschool will be quite meaningless as little as a year from
now. So why even try?
You dare ask such a question? It's the same force that drives us
to continue our lives. Why try when you know what you do today'll
be forgotten tomorrow? I dunno, we just do. Bums wake up every
morning to beg for change, use that change to buy some booze/cigs,
sleep, and wake up for another day of poverty. Teachers wake
up every day just to go to some shabby old school to teach a bunch
of spoiled melodramatic teenagers for a measly paycheque. I dunno,
it seems like so many ppl have to suffer with their lives and it
seems so easy to end it; but ppl continue with their lives, no matter
how much suffering there is. Maybe there's some kind of force out
there that drives us to continue our existence.
Alas, all's well and ends well. With technolympics over, all that's
left are the IB exams (for the IBers) and the Provincials (for IBers
and normalfolk alike). After that, 2 months (?) of freedom!! In
the meantime, school. blah. Anyway, to all of the members of Q,
that'd be Bryan, Esther,
Francesca, Helen, Huijin, and
Russel, it was a pleasure working with all of you guys.
Too bad we didn't do much in terms of kickin' arse, but hey, we had
April 21, 6:00pm
NOOO!!!! Edwin of IME
has decided to "move on". Man, I'm gonna miss that guy...but at least
he's still gonna continue his music career. And at least the
band will continue with their music. New name: My Mother Earth.
How original. Speaking of music, it's official that our name for
the talent show is One. Steve and Adrian, if you're reading
this, send me an email; i'd like to be able to contact you guys via
April 20, 1:00pm
Had a great practice w/ my group yesterday. Actually
accomplished quite a lot...even memorized the whole darn
song in about 3 or so hours. Good work guys! Let's see,
we still need a name...
Got back from the Sun Run. ACK! First time I got a
worst time than the previous year. It's embarrasing.
I woke up at 6:30 and waited to hear the rain for an
hour or so, but I didn't hear any, so I got changed
and headed off. Coolness.
S'more work to do. Toodle'oo
April 19, 8:30am
Whoa. Today's the last day you'll ever get to see the beloved
play Fiddler On The Roof performed by Churchill's own
beloved students. It's highly likely that there will be a
completely packed house; last night was already 7/8 full,
but i get the feeling that there won't be a single seat left
and ppl are gonna hafta stand...
Okay, big weekend this is. One more night of Fiddler... Huge
Techno meeting tomorrow, not to mention the Vancouver
Sun Run which'll take place at 8:00am tomorrow... [sigh].
Then a physics midterm on Tuesday. Oi my aching head. On
another note, IB exams will commence in a week or two. Sorry to
remind all of those who are taking them... tee hee! But hey,
when you signed up for this program you knew what you
were getting into...right?
April 11, 11:00pm
Okay, deep thought question for all you Buddhists out there:
You believe in reincarnation right? Well, for every person
that dies, his/her soul is then placed in another body for another
Well, if this is the case, then why is the population rising?
Quote from Fiddler: "Once a butcher always a butcher."
April 10, 7:00pm
Total coolness. Not really. As if you care. Oh well, but anyway,
just received my (conditional) acceptance letter from SFU. 2
conditions apply: i hafta grad and keep the sci standard (~ 84%?)...
i dunno. Heh heh. Cool
Also, never think that you're the best b/c if you're good/great
at something, there'll always be many many many (for me, it was 4)
people better than you. It can be totally unfair too, but hey, that's
Okay somebody, let me know if you want to do something for the Talent
Show! So far, I've been able to gather 2 or 3 other guys in the
lower grades who can sing...
Lotsa contests next week: one of which is the
Da Vinci...the other are the Euclid and the CAP Physics contest...
Cool, lotsa classes missed, but no big deal. This weather we've been
having has been GREAT!!!
Oh, heard that CFox had a bunch of
cool website links - called "Geek[s] of the Week". They mentioned
one site where you can enter a name (like ti domi) and make an anagram
outta it (m. idiot) pretty nifty...unfortunately, i haven't even
checked it out yet to give you a decent link, so you're gonna hafta
find it from the cfox page. That's all for today.
Sebas, I hope you're happy.
HAheheh! the prince of darkness has arrived!!! yeah thats right, kick ass me....

April 9, 5:30pm
I dunno, but
this guy totally cracks me up. Don't ask me why I
suddenly thought of this...
April 8, 4:30pm
Okay, talent show is coming up...if anyone wants to get
together and do something, let me know...I'm thinking of
picking out a cool song to sing a capella in a group...
that means a group of ppl who can sing must assemble
and find some way to rehearse and all that jazz
April 7, 7:00pm
Has this ever happened to you? You're thinking about a certain song,
and when you turn on the radio, it's playing! Weird ain't it?
April 7, 4:00pm
Gosh, haven't updated for 5 days...okay, I'm back, kinda.
Accounting test on thurs...some ppl already had it today.
Whut else. DP? heh. Oh yeah, get your Grad CD write-ups

Big huge honkin' Happy Birthday to my good 'ol buddy

Man, the weather is just kickin'! Hope it keeps up for a
while...What a great day. Also installed a brand
Epson Stylus 800 printer (1440 dpi!) for my cool
comm serv teacher Dr. Gabbott.
April 2, 7:15pm
Man oh man, the good news just keeps on pouring...for others
that is. Big hand of applause for Lindsey Cragg (y'know, one of
our very own Gr.12 Reps) who received acceptance letters from
Queen's and Cornell. Great job Lindsay! And congrats
to Warren and Peter Bien
for their two interviews from sponsors of
Shad Valley!! It's still early
w/ all this univ stuff anyway...
Whoa. big lab to do tonite and tomorrow nite. Lab 21A
(Redox rxn's) for chem, and Investigation 11 for Physics. That
ought to keep me busy for a while.
Got a big complaint. WHY ARE THERE ONLY 3 NETS SET UP AT
LAURIER?! THERE ARE 6 COURTS FOR CRYIN' OUT LOUD!! WHAT THE HECK
ARE THE OTHER 3 USED FOR?!. There go my two cents. I'm gonna
talk to someone about it tomorrow...
April 1, 4:15pm
This is bad. This is really bad. Not only is that darned
English research essay due tomorrow, I'm addicted to
MICROSOFT SOLITAIRE!! ACK! What a great day to get back
to school...great weather an' everything.
Had an awesome Easter holiday. Did a little bit o' this
an' that. The terriyaki chicken @ Earls rocks. You ought
to go try it...
