Happy Canada Day!

Yes, Canada Day was yesterday, and I fully intended to post yesterday, but wouldn't you know...

I spent Canada Day doing one of the best things possible: going to a baseball game with my dad. It was raining, unfortunately, so the 1:05 start turned into a 2:05 start, and for a reason which I have yet to discern, the auctioned Border Cats jerseys were yellow, not red. Way to go with tradition. :rolleyes: But the game did not disappoint. We won 8-3 with some awesome plays that I don't remember anymore. :D It was great.

Afterward we rented Fantastic Four, which was okay but not great, and ordered in Chinese food which I shall warm up in about ten minutes for breakfast. Then it's time for work, and then more food, and then relaxation before I sleep.

That's what this week is about. I'm officially off school, and I have this amazing urge still to be productive in other ventures. Maybe I should. But I also think that a lot of my stress comes from the fact that I am too stubborn to ever relax or completely take a break--even when I am "relaxing", I have to be doing something. So this week might be unproductive, but hopefully in a good way.
