||[Feb. 13th, 2005|05:10 pm]
Well today I woke up really happy for some reason, I just kept thinking march break was next weekend until I looked at the calendar and realized I was 1 week ahead... so now i'm not in the best mood. This weekend I decided to go see my grandparents and see what they are up to, so I arrived at their house on thursday night(since I dont have school on friday :P) around 7:30PM and spent the night talking to them and playing skip-bo and cribbage with my grandmother.
On saturday morning we wen't into Laval because my sister is a figure skater, she has been skating for around 10-11 years and she had a competition with her Synchronized skating team which is composed with 10 skaters I believe. So anyways we arrived there around 11 and she didnt get on untill noon but their group did very well and came 5th out of 11 teams which is quite good considering some of the team members only have 4-5 years skating experience. I also got to see my mother at the rink which was nice since I havn't seen her in about 3 and a half weeks.
So after leaving the rink, me and my grandparents wen't back to their home in Vercheres and watched the movie "Hurricane" which I have seen before and is a really inspiring and really emotional story about a African American boxer, Rubin "Hurricane" Carter who is framed in a murder and is sen't to jail for 18 years and its based on the true story of this courageous man. If you ever have a chance to watch this movie starring Danzel Washington, its a very moving story and really maked you think about certain things like the racism that is still very real in this world and it makes me angry that some people can be so ignorant and stupid sometimes. I know that the world has really gone forward and that racism has gone down tremendosly but its still out there and it aggravates me that people can judge people and hate people based on the color of their skin, its the dumbest thing and I can't some people still have very racial thoughts...
This weekend I also talked to two of my friends from back home who are thinking of going to John Abbott and we started to think about getting an apartment together which would be so much fun and I hope it all works out how we are planning so tomorow (monday) I gotta start looking around for apartments, WOW SO MUCH FUN ... lol not, as you probly know, i'm a very shy person and the though of even going into an apartment and asking the owner the rent and all that makes me nervous, I don't know why but hey i'll do it anyways heh.
Anyways I will leave you on that note, my weekend was very good and I just cant wait untill march break arrives!
