Rawr, exams.

My exam schedule has changed from:

April 19th, 2PM - Celtic Civilizations (the class that's getting its ass kicked by me)
April 21st, 2PM - English 110
April 25th, 7PM - Psychology 100
April 26th, 9AM - French 220 (the one I'm failing/really, really close to failing)
April 26th, 2PM - French 115 (the one that I'm doing okay but not great in)

to:

April 19th, 2PM - Celtic Civilizations
April 19th, 6PM - French 115
April 21st, 2PM - English 110
April 25th, 7PM - Psychology 100
April 26th, 9AM - French 220

Because Arpin (my 115 prof) is nice and stuff, he's letting me write my 115 exam earlier so I can focus on my 220 and my Psych, two of my three worst classes (the other is 115).  Since I'm totally whooping Celtic Civ's butt (93 and 95 on the first ans second test, respectively, and 80 on the midterm), having 115 the same day as Celtic Civ is much preferable to having it after Psych 100 and 220.  This also means I have more time to spend on Psych and 220.

I wish I could take French 215 with Arpin next year, because he's awesome, but he doesn't teach it.  I'll have to ask around and find out which prof/profs is/are better.  Or just pick the class based on when it happens.  XD


Also, Porcelain Doll Scene is an awesome band.  They're from Nova Scotia, and write awesome songs (there's a couple songs you can download from their website if you're curious).  I was talking to Gayle (the vocalist) at the Creative Writing Reading Night last night, and she said that she's working on a song about Mary Ellen Spook, who lived in Caledonia Mills (close by), which is awesome.  (Mary Ellen Spook is  alluded to in PDS's song "Life in New Scotland", but I think Gayle meant that this song was only about Mary Ellen Spook.)

Brief summary of the Mary Ellen Spook story: she was adopted by a childless couple who lived on a farm in Caledonia Mills.  When she was around 16 or so, fires began to break out around the house for no reason, and not near sources of flame like the fireplace.  There are mentions of a large black dog also having been seen playing with Mary, but the dog wouldn't play with or go near anyone else.  Eventually, the house burnt down and the family moved away.

The land is currently unoccupied - no one from this area, or even some other areas of the province, would ever live there.  A story about the Mary Ellen Spook Farm was featured on Creepy Canada during season three, though they were most definitely mistaken when they claimed that there is no a campground on the old Spook Farm land. Hahaha no.  The land is haunted - the story goes that if anyone goes there and takes anything from the foundation of the house, fires will break out and/or other bad things will happen to the person until whatever was taken is returned or ceremoniously burnt.

It's something that everyone who has grown up here knows about - I know people who have gone out there to explore and have had crazy shit happen to them (then the next night they went and broke into the old mental hospital in Pictou, which is also haunted - I never said they were particularly smart XD).

A good example of just how notorious the Spook Farm is around the Pictou/Antigonish areas is this: a few friends went out to the Spook Farm one night, because they had never been and were curious.  When they came back to town, they went into the 24-hour Subway on East River Road n New Glasgow.  Trying to be friendly, the manager asked them what they had been doing out that late.  When they said that they had been out at the Spook Farm, they were told to leave.  The manager didn't want them there in case they had taken anything with them from the farm.

The Spook Farm is only one of the many places with ghosts/etc. there in Nova Scotia - there's that, and the Pictou mental hospital, and the Fortress at Louisbourg, George's Island in Halifax Harbour, there's Red Eyes in the Merigomish area, and even the building I'm living in right now.  And those are only the ones I can think of off the top of my head, no research involved.

Also, I firmly believe in Red Eyes, and he/she/it terrifies me to no end.  rostand, too.
