I have created a new blog title Your Graphic Design. Since I'm in college to become a graphic designer, I might as well put my knowledge to some use. I'll be bringing you tips, tricks, and custom tutorials using for use of your favourite design programs. I'll be teaching you what I've learned from my personal experiences as well I what I've learned in class.
Check it out!

Woke up this morning to having no electricity at all, so that sucked. Couldn't shower or anything and the house was pretty cold. I called my girlfriend to let her know when we;d be leaving to go to my aunt and uncle's house for our supper thing. My girlfriend was out of power too and it ended up the whole town was. I don't live in town (I'm outside int he rural area) so it must've been a huge area that was out of power. It eventually cam back on though so that was good.
There had been a bunch of warnings out for freezing rain and everything for tonight, and it finally came a little after supper time. We had gone to our aunt and uncle's house (about a 45 minute drive) for a supper get together thing. It had started snowing there bus it wasn't bad. On our way home though one of the cities we go through was just absolutely covered in snow. You could even see the path ways of cars losing control on the roads. Almost saw a car lose control too, people just don't know how to drive when the weather gets bad.
As we got closer to home the winds picked up and there was more snow. We saw a car in the ditch...and mean it was IN the ditch. It was on the opposite side of the road and looks like the just gunned it right in. Not sure how they managed to do it, but they did. Not sure how long it had been there either, but I don't think it had happened to long ago.
We finally got home safe and sound with the power still on and all is good.

This night starts with an unexpected turn. It was 4:20 PM when the phone rang. I saw on the call display that it was my work calling, "Uh-oh" I thought, uh-oh was right. My boss tells me that I need to come in and deliver for a bit because something is up with the other driver. I said ok and she knew I had plans tonight so I didn't have to work ALL night, just until 9:00 PM.
In my previous chapters I had talked about Friday sand how it was supposed to be busy, then wasn't. Well, tonight was crazy busy! I worked 4:30-9:00 and within those 4 and a half hours I had done that same amount of deliveries as I did last night working 8 hours. The orders were constantly coming in and going out. I managed though, and walked away with some tips.
The party tonight wasn't the greatest but it was still good. Everyone was in The Shack upstairs, that where the kerosene heater is. We also have a bed and couch up there too. The place was packed with people, it's not a big space to begin with so that doesn't help. Everyone of course had been drinking since who knows when so, the party had definitely started without me. I wasn't overly excited to be drinking and my rum and coke just wasn't doing it for me. Not sure why since I haven't been to a party in awhile, oh well maybe next time. Time for me to head to bed though, it's late and we're having this family dinner thing tomorrow (Sunday) so we'll be there almost all day.
My stories will continue...
