Movie Trailer Voice Guy Questions

So I was driving home from work today listening to the endless commercials on Rock 102 and a beer commercial came on and it was one of those guys who does the voices for movies and stuff...you know who I’m talking about...anyway it got me thinking, like who are these guys, where do they exist, do they have other jobs? do they make their entire career out of these commercials? Where does this distinct voice come from, are there a certain percentage of people in the world that have a weird voice like this or do these people train to have this voice? is there some sort of training school to be this guy? .... anyway then I was laughing cause there were kids playing on my street, thinking, are one of these kids gunna grow up and have this voice? I mean like guys like Scoles have unusually low and distinct voices, I kinda wish I woulda known a pre-pubescent Scoles, so i could analyze these traits and understand the transformation.

Or maybe I’m just jealous I'm not this guy...

Till Next Time...

Waiting is Frustrating

Waiting in general is pretty frustrating, I've been thinking about this since I'm still waiting to hear the decision from Ryerson as to whether I was accepted into their program or not for the fall. This is particularly frustrating, because they led me to believe I would find out their decision either way between April 8th and may 16. Now being that it's May 24 today kinda frustrates me. I even called and they said that no decision has been made yet. Waiting is most frustrating I find only because I am a bit of a forward thinker...so rather than think about the fact that in ___ days/months/years or whatever this decision will be nothing but the past, and I'll look back and say "hmm that was life changing". It's the fact that I long for this moment that drives me nuts, and perpetuates my anxiety surrounding my future here. But it will be done soon. But damn broken deadlines...they make me angry.

In other news, I'm full time at Cosmo now, so I work 8-4 Monday to Friday. I'm pretty pumped about this, should actually make some money for once (as well as the fact I have the Ramada job still, which gives me 16 or so hours a week on top of my 40 @ Cosmo). So If I get into Ryerson it means I'll have lots of money to save so that I don't have to work while I’m there.... Or that I'm gunna party extra hard this summer.

As far as summer plans, I've decided to follow in Sam’s footsteps and make a list of things that I want to accomplish in the summer, not sure exactly what I want to do yet but I think it's a good idea, but I mean it's really gunna depend on my whole Ryerson decision.... why must this effect everything...

Some things I would like to do:

Go to Candle lake for August Long (already booked off work!)
Go Camping with Diana somewhere
Record music (factor grant...still waiting on that too)
Play lots of shows
Read more...like finish a book a month or something (I'm the worst reader)
Write a song for the Breaks
Get a Tan
Go to the gym on a regular basis

That’s just a few things I'm thinking about

But I work in the AM and I’m already predicting it being hard to fall asleep seeing as I just had a 3 hour nap....dammit!

Till next time...or maybe next month judging by how often I've been posting

Hmm there’s another thing for the summer...post more (probably won't happen haha
