A, B, C of growing up  
*sigh of relief* Things are finally starting to wind down for the semester.  Crunchtime ends tomorrow and I'm in pretty good shape for it, and I think most people are too.  Which is good!  It means we're less likely to lose people in the coming semester to reasons other than their own.  I think I spent a grand total of 19 hours just editing the music video so far. (Omg, that's too much time.)  But now it's pretty much ready to go to DVD, so hurrah!

I was looking over things for second year, and got the final weekly breakdown...

Week 1 - Broadcast Tour (... sounds like it'll be a big drunken thing [yay. not.] but on the up&up, I should be able to visit alias_chick! hollah)
Week 2 - Preproduction/Assist
Week 3 - Preproduction/Assist
Week 4 - Production
Week 1 - Production
Week 2 - Post-production
Week 3 - Post-production
Week 4 - News (in studio)
Week 1 - News (in studio)
Week 2 - News (Shoot & Edit) *PHEARZ*
Week 3 - News (Shoot & Edit)
Week 4 - In-Industry Practicum (EE!)
Week 1 - In-Industry Practicum (EE!)
For the winter semester, things repeat the same way unless you get the opportunity to Co-Op out and work in industry *CROSSES FINGERS* I think you need to find a job (or jobs) that (combined) guarantees you 35 hrs per week of work, since that would be equivalent to our credit hours (i believe).  If I'm ridiculously lucky, I'll get some contacts this summer and be safe for practicum & co-oping out.  I'm nervous, to an extent, because the rest of my team are such strong workers that they're pretty much guaranteed offers in the industry for co-op options, and it'd be just shameful if I didn't get that opportunity, too.  Which, as a side note, is why I'm so excited for this team: they're all so skilled and passionate that it should inspire me to push my limits and exceed expectations.

My main complaint this year, more than any other ever, is how friggen far away from everything I live.  When I worked at Kernels, it was a 40 minute commute, usually, and that would also cover going to visit pretty much whoever.  Now, to get to campus by driving, it's 45 when I'm speeding & lucky, usually more like an hour.  And the ride is alone (I hate driving alone! It's so goddamn boring).  From there, everything is at least 30 minutes, usually a bit more.  I hates it, precious.  I'm used to Richmond, where everything is at most 20 minutes away driving time.  40 minutes by transit if you're really unlucky.

It's made doubly worse, because short of winning the lottery or quitting school, I don't have the means to get the finances to move to a more accessable location. XP!  Hopefully by this time, two years from now, I will be in my own place in a great location with a nice, fuel-efficient car.  Much as I love Stacey, she's about $90 per week for gas.  Which is ridiculous!  Anyways, those are my goals. LOL -.-;

I think I've rambled on enough for one entry.  How's everyone else doing?  Is it crunchtime for you too?

ETA - meme stoled from alias_chick

1 . My username is ______ because ______.
My username is kepp0xy because of a nickname explosion almost a year ago.  I'd changed my username once already, but wasn't happy with it.  Then I was lying on iheartkeys's living room floor & she calls me keppy, and I had been laughing about a fic she'd written about the chickenpox, and how Pox would be a sweetass gangsta name and then voila!  (that sentence had a lot of 'and' in it O_O)

2. My name is _____ because ______.
Hmmm... what is my name? One moment. ah. kePPy: as aforementioned it's a nickname.  the p's are capitalized because the person who originally called me that made a typo, and I was mocking them.  Then it just kinda stuck.

3. My journal is titled ____ because ____.
$ 10 Assassin: lovespring and I played a lot of Assassin's Creed and decided that if we were to become assassins, we wouldn't be as good as Altair (sp?).  Therefore, charging only $10 per job is worthwhile, because if we made a mistake (ie- taking out our employer [oops]), we'd point to the fact that they hired an assassin for $10.  It's also our bandname on Rock Band. (PS3- hollah!)

4. My journal subtitle is ____ because ____.
; you're the target that i'm aiming at.  It's from my favourite Coldplay song (A Message) and it worked well with the title.

5. My friends page is called ____ because ____.
My friends page is called Friend-Folk because they're friends and they're folk. XD

6. My default userpic is ____ because ____.
An extreme close up of Ruby's mouth after she fought the demon-witch-bitch.  'Cause I was really struck by it, maybe some inner feminist thinking that chicks kicking ass and getting roughed up is an awesome thing for independent women everywhere? I think that might have come out a little wrong but whatevs.  I actually have 2: the default icon one and one that's not as close of a close up.
Current Location: Work -.-*

Hahaha yeah!!! I'm excited to be able to see ya again! Staying with you would be cool, but I dunno if we're allowed. I should ask. Also, I am pretty excited for next year, so saying it sounds like awesomeness is for true. The only thing I'm not keen on is the news shooting & editing coz I'm not that great at it O_O! But it's only two weeks, I'm sure I can get through it... XP!

See, I used to love driving. It's just gotten a bit stagnate because I do it so often. And, recently, coz of the music video and misc. other projects, I've been leaving the school at ungodly hours, and when they're not ungodly, I'm exhausted. So either way, the commute seems like death. Plus, my tunes are all old: I've listened to them all a bajillion times D:! Listen to me whine! *zips up mouth*

My original name was winchesterpride! hahaha there was no other.

Hmm... I think that spies often become assassins sorta, and assassins are kinda like mercenaries, so I'd think that assassins and spies are friends when they can/need to be, but enemies most of the time otherwise (ie- when spies kill people, they take assassins jobs away, and assassins could potentially be after spies, etc...) hmm... but I'll give it a bit more thought.

Haha remember when we made our budget sheet? I kinda gawked at the budget for gas... it's all Stacey's fault! I use like $25 per week, driving to and from UBC 5 days per week... it goes up to $30-$35 per week when I add two to three trips to downtown or Burnaby... :D

LOL i know, and really, she's not TOO bad on gas. Sorta. Maybe. Actually, I think it's high coz I speed and that means she expends more gas. *tuts self* It's just that 100 k is so slow on the HWY D:!

I should get a hybrid or smth.
