I’m going to pack my books up here in a bit and just go down to Calhoun’s and study. I might get a bit more done down there over a mocha or something.
If its somewhat safe to drive, that is. It was massively NOT safe last night, when the snow started back up. Yes, we hadn’t even got rid of the existing crap, when a new 3″ comes down overnight. And it’s been snowing all day…but fortunately, it’s the wet kind. The kind that turns everything to slush that gets into your shoes…but at least it’s melting!
Right. So, it’s been snowing three days, and instead of going out and frolicking, I’ve been too busy FEARING FOR MY LIFE every time my car FISHTAILS on the ICE COVERED ROADS because apparently, despite being an ocean-side city, Vancouver doesn’t know the meaning of ROCK SALT.
In other news…I don’t remember Monday much. Oh, wait, yes I do. We had presentations in AUS by new charities for Arts County Fair. We don’t know who the bands are yet, but we are looking for new charities to give the proceeds to. It’s led to some massive quibbling on council over whether an organization that has only female volunteers (because it is a feminist organization that provides support and education for sexual assault victims) is appropriate at an event attended by everyone at UBC, males and females…is it too exclusive because it has no male volunteers?
Tuesday, I ran a whack of errands, one of which was going to Main Library downtown. You can see the Main Library indoor mall type plaza on the Sixth Day with Arnold Scwartzenegger…it’s what they drive through during the gala (I haven’t seen this; Melissa has). That was loads of fun, and then I went to night class…American Politics 320…and then went for Bellini Nite at Milestones with a whack of other campers.
Today, I should be studying. I won’t get a chance between now and tomorrow at 7pm to do the readings for my night class. Or the readings for my Friday morning class, or my Friday afternoon discussion group. Dammit. I really need to get this stuff done sooner. Tomorrow, like I said, I’m working, and then I have night class, and then I’m probably going to go to the Blarney Stone for the Geography Club fundraiser – all AUSers attend all other AUSer events for all other clubs.
Better go make that readings list, pack it up and go. I could have gone to WSU, but nooooo, I had to go to a quality institution like UBC. I had to go to a NON PARTY SCHOOL. I haven’t been drunk off my ass in weeks now. School is definitely back to normal.
