More Lesbians and Guys

Homosexuality, for a reason, has become more popular in recent years. I'm not writing this because I have something against the people who prefer the same gender as a sexual partner. In fact in my opinion people's choices of companionship is their own and nobody else's business but I have read and heard that many do that to experience new things. Of course the openness of some societies (including Canada ) and availability of Internet and more specifically social media should not be ignored. Some countries still are not OK with homosexuality and even have laws to limit or forbid that. Russia passed a law a few years ago which does not make homosexuality illegal. However propagating it would be a unlawful act. Homosexuality is not socially accepted in Russian society and there was once a documentary, I guess, on CBC which showed young Russian s portrait as homosexuals and then would humiliate and even beat the people who would appear on date.

Failed the Program

I'm writing from Trudeau International Airport in Montreal , waiting for my flight back to Calgary . I failed again and wasn't able to finish the program. It was hard and I had difficulty with remembering things again. Physically it was hard as well. I was practicing shooting yesterday and my arms and my legs were hurt. I needed to get at least 200 and my best was 183 . I was on my feet for nearly 3 hours and then in the afternoon a sort of physical defense for another 3 hours. I then went to class to get help with the exam that I had failed and I would write this coming Sat.  Eventually I got back to the resident at around 18:15! I took a shower and went to AB&B (the acronym I created for cafeteria and stands for Awful, Blend and Boring!), ate something disgusting and went back to the residence again. I was so tired but couldn't sleep. It reminded me of what Mon always says: If you're too tired, you can't sleep well at night. I was up until probably 2

Hope for the Best, Plan for the Worst

We did our written exam today. Practical yesterday. For practical, which is consists of three segments I need to pass only one but I'm hoping to get at least 2 or even all 3. I don't think my performance, analysis and decision was bad, particularly in the last 2. For the damn written examination, though, it's different. A four-hour, 100-question examination. I was quite alright on the topics that we have had practiced enough. The other courses, small, useless courses(!) I would call them, not that much. I need to get 70% and this sounds easy but it's not. I know there were many who felt really good at the end. Some who didn't at all. If anyone fails, he/she will get the second chance. We'll see this Fri. I was kind of hoping that I didn't have to go through the process of re-writing the damn test but now I'm not so sure. I hope I can pass but if I can't I get the chance to re-write) (Photo: Despite this picture, or cartoon here, I stayed calm d

Heart Attack

I called The Chef a few days ago to see how he was. We had not talked for a long time. He got very happy! Being lonely and without many friend, family and relative, I understand how someone might feel, when they receive a phone call. That was not a surprise. What surprised me a little, and not a lot, since I know The Chef 's life, is that he told me that he had a heart attack! The Chef has been drinking for years and years and at times excessively. Eats lots of meat and even used to smoke. Someone with that history and in that age, should expect to have a heart attack. I feel bad for him. My situation is not much better than him! I mean I haven't had any heart attack. YET! Or if it has happened, I was not aware of that. I have Gout and possibly other issues(!) but since these are not pleasant things to write about, and no one would like to read, I'm going to stop!  (Photo: The Chef has been given two weeks off work. This is not the first time he's been away fro

Disgusting, Selfish Pig

The training center, that I am at, these day, has different programs and people from different organizations come to attend different courses or get qualifications. I even have seen other nationalities here. I remember back in CFLRS * we had people from Jordan, Georgia and perhaps other countries as well.  Once I was in dining area and saw this fat, disgusting, filthy pig approaching the cooks behind the counter. This animal, whom I realized was from another agency attending a program, usually had a pair of slippers on and showed her disgusting nasty feet with filthy toes, hair not comb and basically like a hobo, dirty and shabby cloths, big belly hanging in front of him and at times showing his nasty disgusting belly button. . In short a true nasty repulsive creature.  He approached the kitchen and asked if they had Chicken Wing ! I wasn't spying him and for that matter anyone else. I just couldn't help listening. At the same I couldn't understand the fact that some

Body Measurement

There's this sort of machine available at the training center which performs different body measurements. I think it's called InBody . I had not seen something like that anywhere else before and I have been wanting to do that in order to see in what shape, really, my body, is since I got here. I finally got the chance to do it this week. I think that was a quite old version of what the company makes but probably still valid. I was quite surprised by the results thought! I had not exercised for a quite a while when I went there due to the knee pain I had. The measurement indicates that 24.9% of my body is fat! I do have a little, not even sensible by eyes, belly but my expectation was only around 10% or perhaps a little more! There are also other information available to the person there, which eventually shows on the printed report, including: 1) Basic Metabolic Rate. This one I like. This is the minimum number of calories needed to sustain life at resting state. It
