Our coal may only last us another 216 years you know?

I don't know how many of you are studying physics in science ten right now, but that's what I'm working on. Today I was reading the section on efficiency and energy consumption, and I was appalled at how inefficient a lot of things are. I really became aware of how much energy we do waste, and how the kinds of energy we use are not very good for the environment, and aren't renewable. Here in Alberta, we are really bad, because we produce so many fossil fuels, that's what a majority of people use as their source of energy. I completely understand that fossil fuels are cheaper than things like hydro-electric dams, and nuclear power plants, but by people and companies using a method called cogeneration, which is defined as the process of using waste energy from one process to power a second process.

Okay, well, I don't really know what my point is, but I definitely am going to try and be more conscious of how I use energy, and waste it.

Soooo, here's todays outfit:

scarf - american eagle, sweater - zellers, dress - divine,
shoes - rampage, tights - fruit of the loom

belt - layfayette, jacket - aeropostale, rest same as above

same as above.

I'm such a hard worker

I'm very happy with myself today because I worked really hard at school today, and I think I got alot done. I even did homework when I got home!! I'm pretty sure that this was the only the third time I've done homework all year, haha. Oh boy.

So today I wore a vest that I had made out of a sweater that I got at a garage sale a few years ago. I don't think that I ever wore the sweater, so then the other day I saw it in my closet, and said to myself: "that could be a cute vest, hmmm" . So I cut off the sleeves and the collar, and voila! I think it's got a cute sort of boho look. Tell me what you think:

vest - thrifted, jeans - moto, shirt - old navy,
necklace - aldo accesories, belt - winners, boots - mother

I was trying to find different places in my backyard were I could get my full outfit.

I wanted to make sure you could see my boots, but I ended up looking like a retard! lol

ps - I love COMMENTS :D

I didn't mean to keep you waiting :(

Alright, I'm guilty. I've been neglecting my blog, and I'm super sorry!
So, lately I've mostly been trying to get alot of school work done, and not much else. I have however been able to do a little bit of shopping. About two weeks ago I skipped the afternoon school and went to see some of my friends who go to school on seventeenth ave, but I was there a little bit early so I went across the street to divine. I love that place. Oh man. Haha, so I bought two dresses and a sweater. Then, I went to The Rocket, which is a sweet store where they do customized shirts, among other things, and I got a extra long t-shirt that had a picture of the earth with a bunch of factories, and it said: "This is Why I'm Hot." I thought it was pretty sweet :),
take a look:

I love tree-hugger shirts :)
shirt - The Rocket, sweater - Zara

Yes, I do know that tights don't count as pants.

I think my team is bad luck for Denver sports teams.

So while we've been down here in Colorado, my ski team has gone to two sports games. We went to an Avalanche game, and a Broncos game, and at both of them, the home team lost. They were both alot of fun though. The hockey game was awesome, and being Canadian, I know how to play it, so it was pretty easy to follow. It was particularly amusing to watch a lady sitting a few rows down from us, freak out the whole game. She was actually hilarious. At the Broncos game I pretty much had no idea what was going on. Don't get me wrong, Football is a pretty big sport at home, but I've just never really gotten into it. I'm not so keen on how much stopping there is, I mean there's only fifteen minute quarters, and we were there for three hours! Oh man. It's okay, I had alot of fun anyways.
Here's some photos:

This was at the hockey game.

That's the really funny chick that was super into the game. We took a video with my friends camera, I'll try to post it.

I was amazed at how many people were there. It was a sea of orange and blue.

I know, we're cute :)

Americans, Go Vote.

Alright, so, being Canadian, I obviously can't vote in the American election, but I have been following it. My main issue in this election is the economy. Because of this looming recession, I am really interested in what the US is planning on doing to save our economy. The United States has one of the biggest economy's in the world, and it affects all aspects of life for people everywhere.
Right about now, it looks like Obama is taking this one home, but there's still time yet.

Anyways, my trip is almost over and I realize that I haven't posted too much, and I'm sorry about that. I'll try to post a bunch of pictures, but if you really want to see all the pictures, just send me an email, and I'll add you on facebook. skiingsuzanney@hotmail.com.

So on Halloween we all dressed up and went out for about 20 minutes and then got bored and came back home. Haha. So, I don't really know what to call what I was, but it had a very 80's flare to it.
Take a look:
I know, I know, I suck at posing for photos.
