First Day of School

by Ed Lau on September 5, 2007

That’s right. Five carefree months are once again over, seemingly almost before they started. Seriously, even though I seem to get more and more time off, it always feels like summer is getting shorter. My feelings are always mixed when it comes to school. It usually means more torturous hours and monotonous classes but it also means I get to meet new people, party and, well, UBC is always full of hot girls.

This year started off the same way it does every year, really with me skipping my first class to sleep in. Changing my “normal” sleep regiment is difficult since I’m not used to waking up when the sun is still in the East. But hey, at least it was a nice day out.

This is where I’ll be taking just about all my courses this year. Yep, one building which is a stark contrast from the miles of trekking I had to do last year going from building to building.

My first sociology prof is…for lack of a better word, perky. Almost annoyingly perky but she seems nice enough. This class will be on the sociology of work, which is perfect for me since I have plenty of work related material to use in papers. In fact, I got an A on one I wrote last year about my job at London Drugs. She had us tell interesting stories from work and I think mine topped them all…

…although one girl had a particularly good reason for hating her job at a copying place.

Hurrah for sociology!
I totally forgot about John’s compatibility trick. It freaked me out when he did that trick on me!

Reminds me! It’s time to go back for Mandarin lessons plus some random course in some subject that I’ve always wanted to learn about. Time to rip up the course calendar and do a random draw :lol:

Black boards and chalks are still in use? Very nostalgic!

Ah, Buchanan building, the memories. The good thing is you are close to the SUB for food. Any freebies yet from all the booths?

It’s become more difficult in recent years since…I carry a laptop with me to classes.

At our school, no one has laptops. It’s actually kind of freaky O_o
