Mail-Time "Monday" 1.2

Yes, apparently I fail at doing this on Mondays. At least I'm doing it on Tuesday this time!


Postcard from Deana. I hooked up with her on the postcrossing forum, where she had this great idea - we all get blank postcards every so often, but they're always more fun when there's something to read, too. So we sent each other 10 blank cards, and now we're getting our own cards back in the mail, but with fun added. I think it's great - I don't even have to stock up on cards for this! I can be very greedy with awesome cards that I have, so I like getting them back :D

Happy birthday to me! My birthday is in a couple of weeks, and I got this lovely card from Starbucks, entitling me to a free drink! That is why I like Starbucks.

(Yes, it was a rather sad mail week. Only one real piece of mail. *sniffle*)


A letter to my lovely friend Callie. What do you think of my envelope from Timmy's? It's kind of thin, but I think it'll hold up.

(For you American readers, Canadians live on Tim Hortons. Apparently your version is Dunkin' Donuts, but I think Timmy's is a bigger deal for us. The top 3 most Canadian things are hockey, poutine, and Tim Horton's. It's not the best, but I like it is because: a) we don't have a Starbucks in my town, and b) it's open 24 hours, which is great for late night coffee runs with friends.)

Reply to Deana. She had some really cool cards to exchange.

Reply to Marta. She sent me a lovely postcrossing card last week.

That's all folks. I hope to get some more letters written this week. I have the week off of work, so it seems pretty possible.

I started my summer job last week. I'm working at a printers, and my job is coiling school agendas. It's very exciting (not). They hire a bunch of students to work specifically for that job, so that the full time staff can keep doing regular work. Apparently they are usually doing agendas full swing by now, but this year their orders were late, and the inventory isn't in yet. So last week my group started production on other jobs. I did maps for a couple days, and one day I did French educational booklets. Thursday we did French agendas, and then we got to stuff them with those divider tabs and bookmarks. When we finished that job, we had officially run out of work. So I get the week off, or until the inventory comes in and they're ready to go. They're expecting to be going by Monday, and I really hope that's the case. It's really boring, sitting and coiling books all day, but I'm pretty good at it already. Plus I get to listen to my iPod all day - my poor, 3 year old, 4GB iPod Nano that has had water dumped on it and still serves me faithfully. Actually, the sucky thing is that I have over 20GB of music on my computer. It's very hard to pick and chose what I want on it. It takes me about 2 hours to get a good mix of my favorites and new stuff to sync. Hopefully within a month I'll be able to purchase a new iPod with more memory - 32 or 64GB, even? Anyway, I'm sure that a stream of new music will keep me going! So I appreciate any music recommendations!

I finally have my final grades for the winter semester of school! An A+, A, B+, and a B! Haha, I just realized that they go in order when I typed it! Go me! :D Anyway, I thought I was totally going to bomb my classes, but apparently I did really good!

My cousin is getting married this weekend, and they are doing the coolest thing (that I'm not even going to pretend I won't use for my own wedding). Instead of spending a lot of money on catered food, they asked a bunch of their aunts and friends to bring cheesecakes for a dessert reception! I am extremely a little bit nervous because I told my mom I would try to bake one, so she wouldn't have to go out and buy one. But I have never baked a cheesecake before. I'll be doing my research before I attempt it tomorrow. Wish me luck.
