Finally…the Net!

Today was a horrible day. I worked on my report – got somewhere but not much. It feels like I’m winding the entire thing down after all it is over the limit. Talked to Jaron about Linux and where it should go. I’m of the opinion that if people are interested they should try it out and recognize that it’ll involve a bit of dissonance (for now). He wants things to become pain free before he’ll move. I guess he’s waiting… Talked to Bell, set up the phone line. That took a lot of time. Asking about the billing, Sympatico and on and on… Finally got in touch with Justin on ICQ. It’s like he’s a mirage – you can almost *never* catch him. Set up Internet with Rogers – reasonable price for the first three months. Extortion afterwards since we don’t have TV. Talking to everyone tires me out :( Rest of the day unfolded badly.

Hmm…WTRs Suck

Started working much more on my work term report today. The anaylsis was just started and while writing the rubric the report extended over the 20 page limit. !$%!! I contacted my landlord and asked that I move in @ 3:00 on the Saturday. Bought the remainder of my books, filed for OSAP online and bought the router. Posted quite a bit on help.gnomesupport.org. Played with Wanda the fish. You know – the GNOME fish :) It will be a very busy day tomorrow. I have to finish the report and set up the phone + internet. Someday I’ll have to find the time to get a bike. Sleep @ 11:00

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.
