Back At The Raptors
17.03.2007 -8 °C
I know it has been a while since I last wrote on here but I have been pretty busy with work at uni and with work with the kids. Well this week I have had off with March break with the kids but still been in for staff meetings on how to combat certain issues and things to do with them over the summer months (well April - June). Seems like it's going to get busy especially around exam time and luckily for me I don't have to take time off work as I can fit my studying around work too and still have plenty of study time. So if I can survive this month then I can survive the exam period.
So since I last wrote to you guys, I've been paid from work...nice one months wages! Been a tour guide yet again as Kat has her sister and boyfriend round so Kat and I were showing them around on Thursday. What else? ... erm... Oh yeah I have grown an addiction to Windows Movie Maker. I am currently working on a project of my time here at Ryerson and then my summer travels etc, etc. So far I've spent more time on there than at the gym this week, which is quite bad!
So tonight I went to see the Raptors again at home to the Houston Rockets and couldn't you tell who the main man in town was? Yao Ming! The 7'6ft centre has any city with a Chinese population go crazy. Even before the game I turned up to the Air Canada City and I was walking in with a few thousand Chinese people who were surrounding me. The place errupted with cheer when they introduced him to the game in the pre-game show and just my luck to be surrounded by hundreds of them and some of them to be supporting the Rockets solely because of Yao Ming. Anyways, Raptors lost 100 - 114 and was a shocking game really defence wise and no one was rebounding in the key. Field goals were rubbish and in the 3 point regions they just walked all over us. The good side is that I get a free slice of pizza tomorrow as the Raptors scored 100 points. So yay for me! Or I may just keep the ticket for the scrap book.
St. Patrick's Day tomorrow and I've been waiting for this day for a while now as we thought this day was big in the UK and Ireland but over here from what I have heard its crazy! But I'm sure we'll find out tomorrow as I go to the Irish Embassy (Pub) in the afternoon and then to Maddys in the evening for more crazy madness and possibly more singing, which we haven't done for a while.
Anyways off to bed now so night night
