Itâ€™s the end of another weekend and Iâ€™m heading back to the University of Waterloo on a very crowded bus. In the winter, this bus was always so empty and I wondered how the company made any money. Well, itâ€™s the summer now (Iâ€™ll explain why in a bit) and Niagara Falls is the tourist place to be in the summer so the bus is pretty jam packed. Iâ€™ve got my arms scrunched up here trying to write this. Picture me with a 15.4â€ laptop on my lap trying to type with about a foot and a halfâ€™s space in front of my chest. Itâ€™s not pretty and feels pretty damn awkward to boot. Who knows if the people around me are looking at what Iâ€™m writingâ€¦ Hey you there, stop peeking. Yeah, you.
The weekend wasnâ€™t too bad I guess. I did quite a bit of preparation for studying (that means getting myself and my notes organized) and started reading the course notes. I really havenâ€™t gotten through much of anything yet and Iâ€™ve got my three hardest midterms starting next Friday. It should be okay. I plan on existing in the library for most of the time this coming week. As well, Iâ€™ve got a few interviews which Iâ€™ve had to prepare a little bit for coming up early next week. Hopefully theyâ€™ll go well. If I can get a job in this first set of interviews, a big weight will be lifted from my shoulders. It would especially suck to have to worry about getting a job later in the year, especially around final exam time. Theyâ€™ve removed the early match process that I used for last semesterâ€™s job so Iâ€™ll be able to go through all my interviews and hopefully make a more informed choice. I basically went for whatever job I could get in the first semester (itâ€™s probably the hardest semester to get a job, and for good reason) but maybe, just maybe I can afford to be a little pickier this time around.
Oh, I mentioned it was summer earlier. Although the beginning of the summer season is officially June 21st, Iâ€™m pretty sure itâ€™s safe to say summer is upon you in just about every sense of the word when you have three days in a row of 32Â°C weather (if you could read this Reese, Iâ€™m sure youâ€™d be jealous). Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday next week is when the awesome weather will start. Thatâ€™s not to mention that the weekend has also been extremely nice. This is only the start and Iâ€™m sure Iâ€™ll hate studying when thereâ€™s so much to do outside. Iâ€™ll get my fair share of Ultimate Frisbee in hopefully.
