Today, I entered the lottery at my local theater yet again and won three FREE trips in a single day! I won two trips to Hawaii and one trip to Las Vegas. In total, I won FIVE free trips since I started participating in this lottery. One trip to Orlando, two trips to Las Vegas, and two trips to Hawaii. Lady luck was on my side today big time! Once I figure out how their system works, I plan to give one of these trips to my parents as an anniversary gift. I only need one of each of these trips so I will give out the extras to my family and loved ones.
Guess what? I participated in another lottery by my favorite movie theater and won a FREE trip to Orlando, Florida! Lady luck was on my side tonight. First, a free trip to Las Vegas and now this! My mother said that no one in our family has won anything this big (TWICE)! I will keep you updated on when we go to both Las Vegas and Orlando.
In BBC’s Top Gear, they had a challenge in which they had to make homemade limousines. Jeremy Clarkson, in particular, took a Fiat Panda and extended it to an outrageous size. By the end of the challenge, Jeremy’s Fiat Panda was eight feet longer than a bus. What would you do if you had a limo that big?
I saw one of the most disturbing things on the news regarding a passenger who was forcibly removed from his seat and then dragged off the plane while bleeding from the mouth! What kind of enterprise does that to their own customers? This video has made me concerned about what direction the airline industry is going as a result of this attack. I no longer feel safe going on an airplane after seeing this!
As I prepare for my career as a student at Concordia University, I examine some of the programs they have to offer. One program, in particular, caught my immediate attention: their Study Abroad Program. This system will allow me to take classes in other countries and see the world. Because traveling has served as a primary source of inspiration for my writing, this would be a very worthwhile opportunity to participate in. I looked through the list of locations these classes would take place in and they include my ancestral homes of Ireland and Scotland. My life would be complete if I set foot on the lands where my ancestors lived. There are also classes being offered in various prominent universities in the United Kingdom such as Cambridge and Oxford. In addition, there will be classes being offered in Paris, France and Milan, Italy. The more I think about it, the more I realize that this program will give me a chance to do my favorite things as well as things I wanted to do my entire life. Reconnect with my ancestral roots, take advanced classes, gather inspiration for my writing, and become more cultured. Overall, I look forward to when this takes place once I have consolidated my bearings with Concordia in a year or so.
