Sometimes I want to post on this site just so that Prof. Greg Andres will mention it in class.

Am I the only one around here...
...Who didn't go to convocation?
MOD's NOTE: I feel the same way...
Is it just me or did the morning math convocation have the best Valedictorian speaker/speech?
I hate when a series of random events suddenly come together and you realize they were not random at all. Then you realize that what you said in the past was not lost on someone and they actually took it to heart so now you look like an ignorant idiot, being well deserved as I did in fact act like one, and this other person has turned out better than hoped.
Feminism: where recruitment is more about what's between your legs rather than between your ears.
Reiterating what #15929
said: The guest speaker from OpenText at Arts convocation claimed that our generation lacked certain aspects of memory due to computers and should be congratulated on getting this far in life. I know who I'm not going to work for.
So glad to see an OMGUW app on BB10. Keep up the good work guys!
MOD's NOTE: <3
There is a special place in hell for those who dont know how to shut the fuck up in a library.
I came within inches of hitting a guy on a bike at the SCH entrance who zipped across the road while the don't walk signal was flashing. Please, DO NOT take chances like this on your bike. At a light, dismount and walk on the walk signal. Also, wear a helmet. This guy was not. He could have died if I had not been watching.
is my conclusion after the convocation.
Most corporations and institutions are implementing a scent-free policy within their buildings. I think UW should do the same, but also include unnecessary body odour along with fragrances and colognes.
Roommate says she doesn't have enough money to pay her half of the hydro bill. Then she has the audacity to go an online shop in front of me, and brags about her latest finds.

That amazing feeling when you check your bank account and you have more money than you thought...Then the sinking feeling knowing you will never spend it on anything other than school.
Did anyone else find the guest speaker for the arts morning convocation incredibly rude? Congrats on getting this far considering it's been scientifically proven we have no memory... thanks for acknowledging our achievements... Hey at least we're good at computers... Good thing we had an awesome valedictorian to cheer us up... See ya UW!
The WaterlooStore sells clothes made in sweatshops. I looked at the tags on some t-shirts and they're made in places like Kenya and Honduras. A Canadian university gift shop should be carrying Canadian made clothes. Someone should speak up to them about this.
MOD's NOTE: If you're inclined, their email is at the very bottom of this page.
Am I old fashioned, or does convocation at this university seem like a high school graduation? Quite informal and generally lacking in discipline
Parking services is a joke. It's either pay $170 for a permit, or pay $5 per day. Completely ignores the needs of part-time students or visitors. Even the visitor lots are reserved for weeks at a time for co-op interviewees.
Like making stuff? Come check out Maker Faire Waterloo
Oh god, was anyone at the ARTS convocation this term? The valedictorian's speech was just riddled with cliches. Kinda makes me regret going.
Whoever thought of the idea of implementing participation marks to encourage students' attendance has got it all wrong. If the class is truly interesting, people will go regardless.

I cannot believe you guys actually held a protest. Last year's tuition increase was borderline robbery (mine jacked more than a grand). This mid-term stuff is so delayed and disproportional.
Plugging in your laptop at DP is tough.
How can I pick my Winter classes if I don't have confirmation of my Fall course selection?! Really, uWaterloo, really...
Remember when we were all hyped up about the Waterloo lipdub video?
Can somebody hurry up and leak it.
At least without the music (that would make it legal right?)
People ask me why I'm so insecure, why I don't think I'm pretty. I can name more than 10 guys that have chosen some other girl over me, because she's prettier, or thinner, or so much more fun than I'll ever be, I never feel good enough anymore. And I hate it so much, I cry myself to sleep at night. I just feel so ugly compared to every other girl out there because I'm never the chosen girl, I always end up being the one left behind.
And I know that there's plenty of fish in the sea, and I just need to be confident and happy, and maybe I'll find someone one day, but how am I supposed to stop feeling this way when there's always girls better, prettier, and smarter than me?

So with the recent events in the US with PRISM we can assume the best CS students go to government agencies while the leftovers/rejects go to Google, Apple, etc.
MOD's NOTE: Whatever you say.
To the customers who come into Tim's on campus asking for iced coffee and such, WE DON'T SELL THOSE. It's a well known fact that the campus locations are too small for us to have another machine, so please stop giving me death glares when I tell you you can't get it here.
Sincerely, a Tim's employee
A few days ago there was a guy on a bike herding geese near BMH/PAC/M3, it was pretty cool.
My bike was stolen a week ago at westcourt. The camera caught some chubby scumbag just casually cutting the lock and walking off with it. How low do you have to stoop to steal a girly bike...

I know a lot of people are gonna post about this. I just want to say my condolences to students that are angry about the tuition increase. I'm sorry you had to find out this way.
UW increases tuition fees by a huge percentage every single year and nobody gives a flying f***. Suddenly now you have to pay an extra $79 and EVERYBODY is going haywire.
There is something seriously flawed in the logic of protesting students who think that NOW is the best time to protest, when in fact they are incredibly late in the game.
Protest the student fee increases. Next Tuesday, June 11, noon, DP Quad
I'm sick of cleaning up the mess of previous co-op students at every job. Why are people so careless about their work? Especially when they're fortunate enough to be doing post-doc level work while in 2-3 year of undergrad.
Now thanks to an idiot, I was taken off one of my 2 projects because I need time to redo most of her "work" and so I lose a publication. Yet she still gets the same credit as me for doing near nothing!
Is it even legal to raise tuition in the middle of the term? I think a lawsuit is in order. Either way, let's make it expensive for those bastards in Needles Hall.
Has anyone noticed the increase number of baby geese? I was taking a picture of them and got attacked :(
Please please please stop talking in the library, peeps. A high five for those that don't! :)
At least book a study room if you have to talk.

I've lost over 60lbs in university, despite gaining an awful Freshman 20. All it takes is a little exercise everyday and watching what you eat. Two easy steps that anyone would be able to follow!
OMG: Bus routes will be changing this September
, something to keep in mind when finding a place for the fall!
Person playing The Hobbit soundtrack on the piano in the SLC: it's really relaxing, thanks for that!
Huge thank you to the girls giving away free pitas in the SLC on Monday! Didn't have to worry about packing a lunch before my midterm :)
I wanna be the very best...
MOD's NOTE: ...like no one ever waaaaaaas!

Guy who works at SLC Tim Hortons: stop trying to upsell me. When I say I want a medium double double, don't ask me if I want a large. When I say I want a bagel with butter, don't say "You mean with Herb and Garlic cream cheese?". You hold up the line, and I know what I'm ordering. Please stop.
