OMG: Time to cram 7 online modules that has at least 2 hours of lecture material for each within 2 weeks and pray I get a 60 on the final. And yes I'm the "chinese food 4 times a week and watching at least 3 movies per week" kinda student.


OMG: I don't understand why the environment faculty is forcing their students to take a second stats course in order to graduate. I'm certain that I'm never going to use this regression shit in my life ever again, and I'm bad enough at math as it is that if I need to gather statistics I'm gonna hire someone else to do it for me. What the fuck is the point?


OMG: Is it gay to get an appreciative boner when looking at a good looking dude? Not saying it's me, but just in general...


OMG: The University of Ottawa has just banned yoga classes because some SJW complained it was "cultural appropriation". I'm still baffled that people with such a profound mental retardation are able to attend an University.

Pants that say slim fit just for the fuck of it. Fuck you.

Tims is closed, university should then be closed. Frig Damn it waterloooooo



In light of the things that have been happening around the world lately... I want to see where UW students are at... Here are a few of my opinions on what's been happening lately, do you agree?

1) The whole facebook thing with Paris --- a lot of people are showing their support with the Paris incident by changing their FB profile pictures to the France flag. Other people are complaining that FB didn't do this when other countries were going through similar incidents. But isn't it because Paris is a developed country... and Canada's ally... Most people are shocked that something like this happened in Paris happened! Yes I agree that FB/GOOGLE/YOUTUBE should change their logos to support any country going through trouble... but it shouldn't be so surprising when the media is focusing on Paris attacks and not other countries... I am truly sorry for all the people we have lost recently in natural disasters and man made wars.

2) The attacks on Muslim women in Toronto --- come on, are people actually this stupid?? It enrages me that Canadians are attacking Muslim women just because they're Muslim! Muslim DOES NOT EQUAL ISIS. First of all, don't hurt a WOMAN. Second, don't hurt a PERSON because of the RELIGION they believe in. Are we hurting you for being atheist or believing in whatever religion you follow? I don't think so.

3) "REFUGEES GO BACK TO YOUR COUNTRY" --- I was Canadian born. Yes my parents are not from Canada... a lot of my friends are actually immigrants to this country! But that's what's to love about Canada, they have been pretty open the past few decades. However, you Canadians that are shouting GO BACK TO YOUR COUNTRY. Why don't you go back to yours? I'm pretty sure CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS was not born in North America. Did we not learn about this in elementary/high school history?! People are being so absurd! We all belong in Canada, it's our home.



I've been coming to this website pretty much for the past four years... I've gone through some issues myself - dealing with social anxiety, then depression ... and I just want to help people but don't know how. There are so many students here writing about how they want to kill themselves... But there's so many other things you could be doing instead of having those thoughts.. I've been there, I know how tought it is... So instead of me writing MORE AND MORE nonsensical words.. here's a video... I hope it helps.



I would just like to give a shout out to the day staff at Pita Factory. Always friendly service, and it's a well-organized, well-managed place. Lastly, the daily special is the best deal I've seen in the plaza for cheap and filling lunch. 

Keep it up, Pita Factory!

I literally feel like just killing myself. Honestly. Its just so overwhelming at times.. :( 

I used to live in Canada before. But 3 years ago my family and I moved too another country because my dad got a better job there. In those 3 years I completed my high school online and received all the credits just as a student would normally going to a high school anywhere in Canada. Then I applied for university. I got into several programs at several universities. I chose Uwaterloo, and the program I got into here mainly because of the CO-OP oppurtunity.

Then, my whole family relocated back here in Waterloo just for me. Just so that I could come back and focus solely on university and my courses and my studies. we literally moved to a place a few blocks from the uni because my parents want me to simply focus on my studies and not worry about anything else. My dad is still abroad working.

I went through a tough time in my first year, (last year) but got through it. Although the faculty put me on probation and told me to improve my averages otherwise i would be required to withdraw after this term.

Right now, in my 4 courses Im taking I need to have a 76% average. I dont know if I can do it... :( theres just so much pressure... and I dont even knwo fi this is the right field/program for me... I dont even enjoy learning about the things we do in oour program nor am i too passionate about the field..

Im scared of telling my parents now :( Im scared of how they will react after they went through so much just to put me in a position to do well and focus only on my studies... :( Im scared as to what will happen if i dont get to the 76 and am required to withdraw... :( Im scared to what im going to do with my life afttet this... :( Im scared.. :( Im only 20.. but still.. Im not getting any younger.. :( If i do have to withdraw and my parents find out... what am i going to do... :( at times I say to my self fck it, uni is not the be all end all in life... and fck it, i can go on and still apply somewhere else at another uni in a program i love and am passionate about and do well... :( but then at times I just feel like my parents will be so upset with me aftet they figure all of thsi out... :( and just dont know what to do anytmore... :( everyone else my age is going on to do well... getting oppurtunities... doing well... enjoying their fields... moving on... looking forward to good jobs... :(

I just. I just really feel like going to a far land somewhere and just not giving a shit about anything... :( I just wish there werent so much tension and stress and probelms and scares in my life rn... :( im literally hurting as i write this rn..:( 

MOD'S NOTE: OP, there is a network of people that love you and care for you, and will be there to support you. Please, please understand that. I'd like to point you to the "OMG HELP" section on the right side of the page, underneath "Lost and Found". Remember those whom you love, and who love you!



Yes, I'm staring at the 2 lbs of makeup you have on.



Like FEDS Hall but way worse: 

"The University of Calgary (U of C) is currently being sued by the school's students' union (SU) because the administration wants to literally annex the property and revenues of MacEwan Hall, the massive students' hub that houses—just to name a few entities—a conference centre, two concert venues, a used bookstore, a LGBTQ centre and a food court with three fucking Tim Hortons."



Lol @ international students already bundled up head to toe in parkas and scarves in 10 degree weather. If you think this is as cold as it gets you're in for a treat!



Saturday class FTW:

PSA fo International Students: It is considered rude to talk in class. Why come to class if you're just going to talk throughout the whole lecture? At least sit at the back. ARE YOU EVEN SELF AWARE?



Why do people snapchat story their significant others waking/playing with each other in bed? Nobody wants to see that. 

You may as well go the next step and make us a porn.



I don’t want to tell you how to live your life. That’s not my business. I don’t want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone - if possible. We all want to help one another. Human beings are like that. We want to live by each other’s happiness - not by each other’s misery. We don’t want to hate and despise one another. In this world there is room for everyone. And the good earth is rich and can provide for everyone. The way of life can be free and beautiful, but we have lost the way.

Greed has poisoned men’s souls, has barricaded the world with hate, has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed. We have developed speed, but we have shut ourselves in. Technology that gives abundance has left us in want. Our knowledge has made us cynical. Our cleverness, hard and unkind. We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery we need humanity. More than cleverness we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent.

Our advancements have brought us closer together. The very nature of these inventions cries out for the goodness in men - cries out for universal brotherhood - for the unity of us all. Even now my voice is reaching hundreds on OMGUW.

To those who are reading, I say - do not despair. The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed - the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress. The hate of men will pass, and terrorists die, and the fear they instilled in us will fade. And so long as men unite, liberty will never perish. .....

Soldiers! don’t give yourselves to brutes - men who despise you - enslave you - who regiment your lives - tell you what to do - what to think and what to feel! Who drill you - diet you - treat you like cattle, use you as cannon fodder. Don’t give yourselves to these unnatural men - brute men with brute minds and brute hearts! You are not brutes! You are not cattle! You are men! You have the love of humanity in your hearts! You don’t hate! Only the unloved hate - the unloved and the unnatural!

You, the people have the power - the power to create machines. The power to create happiness! You, the people, have the power to make this life free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure.





I've graduated from waterloo a year and a half ago, and how I miss having conversations and interacting with intelligent and educated students with all sorts of bright ideas. I just feel like I'm surrounded by so many people that don't tend to think outside of the box now, especially at work lol.



I fear most being being held responsible for the actions of those who have hijacked my demographic, by those who generalize and fail to differentiate.



I get cappuccinos cus i like drinking from the big fancy cups.

OMG: Headphones are the biggest enablers of MCs.


OMG: Ive been feeling really depressed and lonely lately but my anxiety is making it hard for me to take myself out of my comfort zone and meet people or talk to someone about it :(




OMG: I'm so excited for the parking ticket I'm going to get because I stupidly only paid for an hour of parking to be at health services. 

Little did I know that three hours later I'd still be fucking waiting to be seen by a doctor. 


OMG: "Black lives matter, you filthy white fucks"

This is being chanted by hordes of racists in university libraries. White people are performing hate crimes on their own race because black people told them to. The world is fucked.


OMG: Can someone explain the Islamic concept of a man after he dies going to paradise/heaven and having 72 virgins as his own and an ever-erect penis? Am I the only one who thinks that devalues any Muslim romantic relationship and marriage? Do men really aspire to this kind of afterlife? Why is this Allah's way, sexual, shallow desires and materialism, instead of things like finding peace with oneself and always striving for personal and emotional enlightenment and treating others the way one wants to be treated? Someone please explain.


OMG: I either have shitty loud neighbours or shitty loud roommates. How do I get away from people?


OMG: Can we take a moment to acknowledge these unsung heroes.

Fashion for change sloot-off on one side and tedxUW happening on the other.

Sloots gon sloot.



The world watched silently when hundreds of thousands of Yazidi men were massacred and their mothers, sisters, wives & daughters were sold like cattle as sex slaves. Nobody cared but just scrolled down the google news. Google never thought of making hangout free. People never cared to change their FB profile pic. Celebrities never cared to respond.

What amazed me was the fact that just two days before the Paris massacre there was horrific blast in Beirut...but it did not receive enough coverage in the media...someone was right in pointing that people who died in Beirut were not white enough...



TedxUW live stream in SLC,id rather watch ben carson talk about his life experiences.



Change my view: what's the point of having nuclear weapons if we can't use them? Personally, I'm fucking sick of those ISIS motherfuckers. Why doesn't the US flatten the handful of cities they control (e.g. Al-Raqqah) and send them back to the stone age they are so fond of? I'm sure most of the civilized world would not oppose it.



The majority of refugees are not even refugees. They are economic migrants who are flooding into Europe illegally - most of them are perfectly healthy grown men - very few families who are actually fleeing form Syria. Their behaviour is disgusting and I'm so proud of Hungary and now other countries that have erected barriers to keep them from illegally trying to get in.

And now, families who are 'Syrian refugees' are being sponsored to live in KW? Where was my money when my family fled from the civil war in Southeast Europe? We had to actually work to get to where we are now. I am anything but proud of this.



Thoughts and prayers for the people in France right now. ‪#‎PrayForParis‬ #MerciMerkel #JeSuisParisienne

This article brought a smile to my face when I read it.



Might stay in canada cus i like dressing up for winter.



So the chocolate dip, double chocolate, Boston cream, and any other donuts with chocolate in top at Timmies are no longer dipped, they are spread. And that just ruins the traditional donutness of the Timmies donuts.



Norm Kelly has an idea on how to deal with people wearing Canada Goose jackets.
