I can only describe this day as…painful. I think every university student knows how it is. The first day is the one in which you buy the books, realize that you’ve got to fill in your OSAP forms, [cough] try to get your internet connection up and running and so on… What one would call a mind-numbing day.
Unfortunately, I’m still on ‘holiday time’ so my first day can hardly be described as a success in the time management department. Oh yeah – and we don’t have a microwave. That is a _huge_ problem. I know, I know – I can hear it now – the jeers, the mocking – but ask yourself “What would I do without the microwave?” In my case the answer is “subsist on cereals and sandwiches”. In Allister’s case, it seems to be “eat protein bars and lots of them”. We’re living the healthy lifestyle up here.
I seem to be having a few problems with my blog being unavailable to the outside world. To say I’m disappointed is an understatement. I had hoped to clear the situation up today, but it looks like its going to be more problematic than I thought. A quick scan through the UW firewall polices leaves me no hope that my blog will be accessible. So…say hello to Sympatico! With any luck we’ll be able to set everything up with them this Friday. Only 4 more days to go!
