It's finally Wednesday!



At the library, must kill 4 hrs before next lecture starts. The library started to have these designated areas to do stuff ie group study, cell phone talk, total silence. Eww, someone left their medication/perscription on top of the desk, it would be funny if light was shining on it, in an angelic fashion, signalling it's greatness ... Ahhhh, drugs too close, i need parental control!!! Yes, my imagination has gotten outta control. Just in case, i blotted out the name of the person that the pills belong to... for legal reasons (ie not wanting to get sued). I like being here @ UTM rather than St. George ... it's kinda the middle of nowhere here, no distractions, no 'shiny objects'. Every course i took at St. George, after lecture, i'd be like 'oww, where can i go now to entertain myself/forget about what i learned?' But it was never a problem because all the classes i took downtown was my last class of the week! The major disadvantage.. travel ... Got up @ 5:30 (i sleep late too .. due to those darm neighbours upstairs) and leave the house around 6 ish, ride my bike to catch shuttle bus that departs at 7ish to get to an 8 ish class. Soo tired when i get on bus, but the time before and after the bus, i feel like i was on caffeine ... Which isn't true ... Oww, i got a Grande Hazelnut Hot Chocolate from Starbucks ... so use to crappy and very sugar based hot chocolate from other places ie Tim Hortons and Coffee Time, that i never knew that hot chocolate can actually taste good! In the past, i'd use to water down the tim hortons hot chocolate so i wouldnt get that 'im drink pure sugar powder' after taste. But I do like those smoothies from Tim Hortons ... but cant really taste the flavour ...

Mood finally elevating to a point of happiness due to the fact that its Wednesday! I like Wednesday because a. i have Business Law and Eco class that day and i enjoy them both and b. it means that tomorrow is Thursday, which means social network analysis lecture and after that ... free time! Well, not free time, study.. but at least not at school :) Did a good job on my Business Law midterm, but cant say the same about my finger . It got a massive papercut from skimming my marked midterm ... its not one of those painful, throbbing ones (argh i hate those ones ... and from opinion, everyone else hates them too), but it's a bleeder.... its a bleeder alright! And it left a big gash on it too. Its on the middle finger too! At least its not on my writing hand .... I think its time for show and tell! Don't worry, will not show/draw details.

I was quite surprised that I didn't see snow on the ground this morning, it kinda flurried, but not actual snow on ground. But i see cars driving with snow all over, wonder where they came from. Maybe it didnt snow where i lived, on the west end of Toronto Central/Centre/Downtown ... I cant distinguish them ... I tried looking up via google, but i came across this website and it talked about travel by bike and it quotes,

"Be advised that Toronto is considered a very dangerous city to bike in by many people, and accidents are frequent. "

Thats great to know, considering there are designated bike lanes, tons of people biking to and fro, and the fact that they want people to find better alternatives than driving ...

Argh, sometimes motorists make me mad, speaking as both a pedestrian and a cyclist.
I will NOT rant about them YET, they HAVE pushed me to the limit on some occassions, but, until they exceed that limit, i will keep it bottled up until some inappropriate time when it all spills out :) At least that would be entertaining for the observers.

Got about 3hrs remaining to kill time ... wanna get a pumpkin to carve jack-o-lantern ... then place jack-o-lantern in front of upstair neighbours doorstep so children can bother them ... just like how they bother me ....

By the time i finish this (with email distractions) i have almost killed 2 hrs! 2 more to go! Starting to study canadian economic history!

Happy Wednesday!

I am totally with you about the distractions on St.George campus...

except for me it's the lectures distracted me from enjoying my campus life...

Connie, why do you bike everywhere? I thought you use the metropass. You may want to consider using that when winter arrives. I agree that Toronto is not the safest place to ride a bike. I actually got one of my bike wheels stuck under a passing car fender once during my high shool days while biking to work. Its not as bad as it sounds but the driver was really pissed off at me because he felt I was riding too close to him. But what does he expect when all I had was like maybe a few inches of riding space. Anyways, there was no damage and no one was hurt but I decided not to bike so much after that. I ended up walking instead. I was a power walker back in those days.
