OMG: Every year, I keep a vigilant eye on campus for the one.
years they're in mathematics, others in engineering. Male, female,
black, white, asian, latino. They do not discriminate. From many, they
emerge as one. From the horde, they emerge as the individual. The man.
The woman. The one.
The first year student that keeps their orientation band on the longest.
OMG: Did you know City of Waterloo is seeking input from residents in questionable living conditions?
They are looking to hold landlords accountable for neglect - it's your chance to make things better for future generations of students!
If you have horror story to tell, feel free to share - but don't forget to call 519-747-8785 so that something actually gets done about it. Details: http://bit.ly/1lcIjuT
OMG: If anyone is choosing to live in Erb Hall, I would strongly advise against it! The landlord is horrid, rarely responds to complaints, and will harass you like crazy i f you get on his bad side! Especially if you are subletting!
OMG: I love the idea of a Fall Reading Week, but I really don't want to start classes on a Thursday next year... I normally use that whole first week of September to get in an extra week of coop, so it'll kind of screw me up if they go with that proposed schedule.
OMG: Is it bad if you're not living with friends? I know alot of people live with friends and I choose just to sublet a single room because 1) I don't really have anyone to rent a place with and 2) I enjoy my space. Just want to know if there's a stigma against living alone when in university.
OMG: Met this cute, petitie, shy and kinda nerdy asian girl recently. We hit it off, added each other on facebook and talked for a while. I just creeped her twitter today and the common theme of her tweets were: bitch, hoe, slut, dick, molly, ni***as, squad, edm etc. Like who the fuck are you?
Why are people so different on social media and real life?
OMG: What does it mean if my grade is DNW (did not write final exam)? It should have a value of 32%, but I don't get a numerical final grade. Does this grade of DNW still considered as a course attempt and used for calculating average? Btw, I am from Math. I got sick for the final exam and I did submit the VIF form.
OMG: Do people say self-entitled because they're confusing it with self-titled? I don't think self is a useful addition to entitled so that's my hypothesis. I'm going to try find a word that I can confuse with eponymous to rebut anyone who says self-entitled.
OMG: PSA: September/October are the worst months for pedestrian accidents and deaths in the Waterloo region, and on campus itself. If you're a new student, or if you deal with a lot of new students, please stress the importance of traffic safety!
Jaywalking is a pretty common activity, and I won't condone it (I do it myself), but please be cautious of traffic coming from both directions. On campus, be wary of cyclists, and stay to one side of the path instead of walking or meandering in the center.
OMG: I look like such a happy guy. I have friends. I'm fairly popular. No trouble with girls. My marks aren't bad. I have some awesome talents spanning lots of areas. I have a family who loves me. I'm not poor.
OMG: For my term evaluation, my supervisor said that if I wanted an Outstanding, I'd have to write the evaluation comments myself. He'd then review it and if he agreed he'd submit it...how does one write their evaluation? As in length, amount of detail, etc...?
OMG: Regarding the (moronic) move by Food Services to rename Fed Hall: the UW Board of Governors maintains final authority regarding the naming of all buildings. To the 5 students sitting on the Board of Governors (including the Feds President): don't allow the University to rename a unique and historic building that was built and paid for by students. Please put a motion forward at the next Board meeting to prevent this!
OMG: You guys should replace the rating system with a thumbs up or thumbs down, since the vast majority either rate 1 star or 5 stars. Most "average"-ranked posts are actually really controversial since there's an equal amount of people who love and hate it.
OMG: Found out my girlfriend has cancer a couple months again, and she went through surgery to cure it, and it was successful but lately she tells me her body is rejecting her mess, I am dying on the inside knowing she can leave me any minute and never come back, all the promises we made will be lies, I hope no one's goes through this
OMG: I hate my life. I
know, as a person living in. First world country I have nothing to
complain about. But shit. Everything I've done so far has ended in
failure. I literally have nothing to show for the last few years of
working my ass off. I'm in the bottom of my class, hardly know shit.
I've done nothing interesting. And have no actual friends. What the fuck
am I even doing here?
