Highway Robbery!!!!

An eventful day today. Went to Waterloo to clear up my OSAP and associated student loans. Called first to conifrm that the Student Awards office didn’t mysteriously close as they as so apt to do. Met Mike and Alex. Good to see them. Dropped over 600+ dollars on books – can you say R.O.B.B.E.R.Y? Obviously the Waterloo bookstore can. Tried to find the bike store I saw earlier – apparently they went out of business or something. Also, I think I’m getting addicted to the Pita Factory – great pitas! Got back home and drove my sister to watch Vin Diesel in XXX. Final Verdict: “Great if you like big explosions, overstressed music and a weeeak plot – good timewaster.” Somebody should tell them to turn the volume down – my ear drums are ruptured. Sleep @ 2:00.

Packed to the Max!

Been somewhat of an interesting day today. Got to talk to four friends that I haven’t talked to for over 6 months – 1 year. Got along well with 2, struck out with the other 2. Unfortunate. One of them really didn’t sound enthusiastic about hearing from me. Wondering what the heck went wrong. Was unable to concentrate on the work term report fully. Turns out that the situation is more convoluted than I had expected. Consoled myself by dragging out my suitcase and arranging/destroying the detritus of my stay at Leitch. Talked with people about how I react to situations. Confirmed things I’ve always suspected about myself when I’m interacting with others. Worried about getting my next job. Also found out that I won’t be able to buy the books second hand. Damn. These books will cost me a fortune. Sleep early – 12:00.

Another day…another term

Woke up late – the results of staying up late reading John Lescroast books. Quite like them actually – the only lawyer based books I can stand. Went to church. Sermon was about how people didn’t think about what went right and always focused on what went wrong. How true! We should give thanks for what we do have… Got back late – went out bought foodstuffs for Waterloo etc. Sent emails off to Kurt, Justin and others. Long emails – lots to write. Read through the mass of emails I have (hitting almost 200 per day). Took too much time. There has to be more of a culling process. Talked to Parthipan about a distro. He decided to download the newest Redhat beta. I want to hear his opinions on its usability. Ended up reworking the page.
