On Sunday, the day I went back to Waterloo, I had really wanted to visit Conestoga Mall but none of my friends/roomies wanted to go with me so we ended up staying in and playing Chinese Checkers.
|Our friend from Ryerson University paid us a visit over Skype :)|
I now have French and Economics lectures on Monday along with French Labs and Tutorials. Tuesdays and Thursdays are Legal Studies, Sociology, and Arts and Business 101. On Wednesday, I have French and Economics with Arts and Business 100 every other week. On Fridays, I have Economics again and that's it! I was originally going to switch my Sociology class to Monday from 6-8pm, but then I'd have a night class, and that was really unappealing. My schedule still looks horrendous compared to my other Arts classmates. Aside from Wednesdays and Fridays, all the other days make me want to cry.
Later that night, our high-school group gathered for a dinner. The dinner was originally planned for 6PM but we ended up having to wait on a bunch of people who had assignments and other duties to finish.

in the lobby of my building/residence for the other guys to arrive. Yes, I was shunned.
|Blurry pic... but omg so expensive.|
The rest of the week went by way to damn slow. I was constantly pissed off by roommate disagreements, annoying schedule of classes, and just... ARGH. When Thursday night rolled along, we all kind of just gave up with readings and other work since we all just had one class on Friday and it was in the afternoon. fishandchips came over that night and watched "Prom Night" with me and another my other roommate. At 10pm, our building had an ice-cream event where everyone brought that own bowls and went to each floor to get ice cream, toppings, cookies and other stuff. It was pretty cool :)
On Friday, I added my final class of the week and then went back to Toronto for the weekend. We took the Feds Bus which is actually just a school bus. The bus ride would have been fine if it wasn't for the horrible traffic at Mississauga. Apparently, there was a car crash and it delayed us for almost an hour.
By the way, I'm typing this with an hour left in Toronto before I head back to Waterloo. Someone hold me. I don't want to go back. -tears-
Speaking of tears, do you guys know that fishandchips pronounces tears (cry) and tears (rip) the same way? ENGLISH MAJOR.
SO ANYWAYS... I don't know how to slip into this next topic but...
Top 4 things I hate about Waterloo
1. My schedule. On Mondays and Wednesdays, I have to run across campus in 10 minutes for my next class which causes me to miss to chance to grab a good seat. I have to end up sitting at the back. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, I have a 1.5 hour gap between each class. Walking back to residence takes me 15 minutes and it takes me 15 minutes to go to the next class. I can't even do anything in an hour...
|I have to go through like a forest, cross a bridge that's over this lake to get to class.|
On my way, I also slay dragons, leap over giant craters, and swim across a pool of lava.
3. Independence? I mean, I don't hate being independent but it's a lot of work. I'll admit - I was babied all my life. I know how to cook, clean, and take care of myself. I have to constantly be on top of my work and readings and omg. Fffffuuuu --
|When we're too lazy to make food, we grab lunch. |
I treated my roommate to BK and she treated me to this.
Marble Slab Creamery? Tasted so good! :)
