|OMG UPDATE: Some changes are coming to OMGUW very soon, stay tuned!

Haters gonna hate: Waterloo threatened with boycott over CIGI by Canadian professors association.
That awkward moment when you fart in the DP elevators and there is a kid standing beside you and he goes "mom that man just farted!"
PD2 team posts a message to all students at 12:07 PM that grades are out and students will be able to access them. At 4:00 PM that same day, the PD2 team posts that they have not marked all the reports, and will be delayed maybe for 2 weeks.
Basically says it all for how big of a joke PD2 is and how they basically were screw ups entire term.
Waterloo Residences, could the staff there be any worse?

I love it when I check my mark on Quest and I'm not satisfied and then the next day I check it again and it drops even lower.
BIOL 373 students of the future, good luck. The course is now taught by a former Laurier prof too proud to admit she's terrible. And we give this first-time prof a course with a 70% final? Least enjoyable class I've ever barely failed, and I took orgo thrice.
Oh great, CHEM 123 marks aren't going up till nearly the start of next term! Taking a look at the prof's folder
shows that the same thing happened last year :\
All I could think was, Robin Sparkles in The Avengers!
is an accurate hilariously depiction of what exams are are like at UW.
when I was still in school back in August roughly. I miss UW!
A couple days ago there was a sign on one of the DP elevators saying it was temporarily out of order. Ever since then I have been terrified of every little sway and creaking noise, feeling that somehow the elevator's cables are going to snap, sending me plunging to my death in a free-fall. This is really much better motivation to get me to take the stairs than some stupid health services sign.
It's snowing again... seems like Canada has two seasons now: hot and WAAAAAY TOO FUCKING COLD!
My summer has so far consisted of sleeping, watching Game of Thrones, IFC films, and playing NHL. I think it's time I find myself a boyfriend.
UW student reading OMGUW at a UofT library. I'm special.
It's one thing to receive a bad grade in a class. It's worse knowing that, that wouldn't be my grade if I wasn't sick while writing my exam :(
That awkward feeling when you decline an employer instead of them declining you.
The exam was multiple choice. Why are the marks still not up yet? I've processed scantron cards for a class a couple times before, it can all be done in an afternoon :\
How to get a MC written about you:
2. Be confident
3. Fix your posture
4. Don't throw yourself at a guy
6. Love yourself
7. If you want to find an MC on OMGUW, you should be asian or Caucasian (blonde)
1. Be a gentleman
2. Fix your posture
3. Be dominant
4. Laugh and smile when a girl talks to you
5. Work out
6. Be confident
I miss school. Breaks are lonely.
Is it just me, or are Waterloo students extremely apathetic and ignorant about whats going on in the rest of the world?
That moment when you look through the missed connections and feel so grateful because your connection wasn't missed.
PS: Haters be hatin'
I finished my first coop term, and I received an excellent rating! :D
video - best 17 minutes of your life (better than KONY). The problem with teachers w/ tenures:
On April 24, NSERC announced an end to the Research Tools and Instruments Grant. At UW this grant provided $2,339,374 annually for important equipment. Across Canada, the cut is $31,383,664 annually. This is on top of the previous cuts to the NSERC Discovery grants, and it continues the trend of decreased funding for Canadian research and innovation.
Long term cuts of this nature will bring Canadian... universities closer the UK or American models. In the UK, there are few universities that are actually able to do new research, while American universities have to charge large tuition fees to support their research programs. And these approaches have consequences. In America, there is now more student debt than credit card debt. The UK has fallen behind European countries in terms of research and innovation.
Many of us want to go on to graduate school and professorships. This affects those students directly. But this also has the potential to affect all of us. It's in our best interest to have a vibrant technology sector. And there are plenty of innovations that will only come out of universities.
The timing of this announcement is not coincidental. Most students are going home for the summer, others are busy with exams. This was set up to avoid an outcry. With your help, I'd like to show that one can still be raised.
So what can we do?
Some of you are going to the CUTC. It would be great if you can inform other undergraduates about these changes and what they mean for them. If we can get the word out to other campuses and other programs we can achieve a broader base of support.
We can also write letters and phone politicians. The MP for our area is Peter Braid. We're also lucky to also have the Cabinet Minister for Science and Technology, Gary Goodyear nearby (in Cambridge). I've included their contact information below.
The announcement is below, along with an editorial on the cuts to the Discovery Grant program. The points it makes are equally valid for RTI Grant.
, and here
MOD'S NOTE: Tl;dr: Research money is being cut, help complain about it to important people.
So can you use the grade points on Quest to somehow derive a GPA? Being asked for my GPA is awkward when all I have is a two digit average...
Wednesday, April 25
It's funny that the set of classmates and acquaintances I hated in first year morphed into best friends and boyfriends by third.
Campus has been so quiet this week. All you can hear are the cries of grad students who didn't do more work during the previous two terms.
Seriously don't give out essay question exams! Waiting for you to mark it and get my marks is killer. I just want to know if I passed :(
Whoever works at the registrar's office should get FIRED ASAP! Been waiting for my enrolment for 4 weeks now. Stop sitting on your lazy asses and get to stepping, seriously!
Coming to terms with the fact that you probably failed one of your courses, and then actually managing to pass that course by some miracle is the best feeling in the world!
My condolences to those still seeking jobs. I've been there. What's the difference between a loser and a strong person? A loser fails to continue believing in themselves. Keep believing, and work hard at securing a job.
Saw a turkey wandering by the entrance to c&d.
To encourage the use of OMG UW over this summer I have built a Chrome app
that notifies you when there are new updates. Enjoy!
Please let me know if you find any bugs or have any suggestions in the comments! And please review/rate the app on the chrome store!
MOD'S NOTE: Thank you, kind sir.

Dear profs: why the fuck... are my grades... NOT MOTHERFUCKING POSTED?
That moment when you are excited because you got your mark back and then immediately disappointed because it is not what you thought it would be.
When you're advertising your sublet or place, please note down which term you're advertising for! It gets really tiring to keep emailing people to differentiate between the Spring and Fall leases!
Why are the girls answering phones in student awards and financial aid office so rude? All I want to do is arrange my fees, you don't have to be a bitch about it. Not like I'm asking for your dad's money.
Convocation this summer? Bitch please, I'm off to Poland/Ukraine for the Euros then London for the Olympics. Grad Euro trip is gunna be a blast, cant wait!
My prof is an idiot! She's making up rules about how I cannot review my exam until the grades are official in May. Well, dear dumbass, I'm leaving for co-op and it is not my problem that you choose to mark a science course in such a subjective manner. I don't trust your marking and I KNOW I did much better than you claim. As for the "rules", check the registrar's guidelines before you make a fool of yourself.
Rant over. Now if I could find a polite and professional way to put this into an email...
Why the hell won't UW Textbook Exchange let me join their Facebook group?
Glad I didn't make the mistake of staying in CS
To those graduates who are always complaining about moving in with their parents after graduating: WAKE UP! You're old enough to realize your life is your fault. You don't have a great job, you dont make that much money, you are fat and ugly, and then you hate on going back to your parents house cause they're the ones providing you with a roof over your head for free?
Nervous about going to school with 6 courses in the summer!!
If anyone finds an iPhone (3G old school, don't know why anyone would take it) with a pink case, please return it to turnkey. It's worthless in terms of money, but priceless to me.
Despite graduating and obtaining a degree, I can't help but feel a great sense of loss. The community that I put so much effort in establishing has been dismantled by this fateful day. Even though I know we all say we will stay friends, I suspect we will have to settle for Facebook.

The waiting game for grades begins...
Not one of my marks is posted up. Great job TAs and Profs.
Marks go up today! :O
Grades are up - bring on the posts about doing really well or failing/disappointment. And since this is whiny capital, I take it the latter will be the main topic of discussion ;)
Waterloo is sooooo dead during the week between terms, c'mon guys, where the parties at ?!
Is it just me or are there more Asian Christians on Campus than White Christians?
Work report due in 2 weeks. Haven't even started yet.
Fuck I'm bored. Can't wait to start work and school. So I can be like FUCK, I cannot wait to be done work and school.
Initially, I did not want to come to Waterloo. I was so upset when my parents dropped me off that first September.
I have always hated the campus.
And now that I'm graduated, I am so upset to be leaving.
Its crazy how things change.
My advice to everyone: Get involved, in whatever way you can. Clubs / academics / sports etc. You will meet the most amazing people ever and be able to look back on your university experiences and know you lived it to the fullest.
Peace out Waterloo - I'm really going to miss you... and all the amazing people I met along the way that made my life as wonderful as it has been. <3 Thank you!
It feels really weird moving back home (permanently) upon graduation.
At a starbucks in toronto, got Eduroam. Fuck yeah!
DONE at Waterloo! It's bittersweet, but, after looking around campus this last few days, I realized I don't belong here anymore. Good luck to all my fellow graduates with whatever you decided to do with your lives; it seems like yesterday we were all cheering and celebrating Orientation Week. And to those just starting out at
UW, good luck butm class of 2012 was definitely the best thing to happen to UW thus far.
WATER, WATER, WATER!
So I realised that a lot of people post MCs about dons. Where can I get the application to become a don? ;)
Sunday, April 22
Exploring the campus at night is a really amazing thing.
So I declared my love for a girl, and she rejected me. I don't feel sorry for my self, In fact, I value myself more for having the balls to tell her how I feel. I''m mature enough to appreciate that despite the fact she rejected me, I'll still have an amazing friend by my side. I don't think I'll never find love, I know there is someone out there for me. I know if it's not meant to be, it's not meant to be. Despite the fact that I understand and know all these things, I can't help but feel sad she rejected me though, cause I really did like this one.
Over the years wouldn't you think that Waterloo would have created a better mail service? How am I supposed to send professional emails from my uwaterloo account when nothing ever appears in my inbox.
Finished my last exam! I finally get to see what all the fuss over this Skyrim business is about.
I hate how some of the hallways in the biology building smell like shit.
Okay, I'm done my degree, moving back in with parent, no car, and lots of debt. I predict that it will be difficult to get laid. FML.
Why do people talk about laws or "breaking the law" as if it can't be changed? The whole point of have a democracy is that the society chooses the law! Wake up and empower yourselves.
To the girl who left her WatCard on bus #2320 on the 29 Keats Way, your card was given to the driver. Call GRT to pick it up.
So excited for first Bomber Wednesday of Spring term! Gonna get white boy wasted...
That awkward moment when you're not sure if you're happy because you finished your exams, or you're sad because you might have failed the exam (and the course).
My bicycle helmet saved my life yesterday.
If you ride a bicycle, at the very least, PLEASE wear a helmet. There seems to be way too many cyclists in Waterloo who don't. It can make the difference between being hospitalized and walking away with a few scrapes and bruises.
MOD'S NOTE: Helmets are the best. We're glad you're okay!
Saturday, April 21
Last exam today and I really need to get it over with so I can have a good cry.
8.5 hrs. before the exam you're about to fail, oh wait, just have to check OMGUW before I start studying.
That moment when a friend makes a joke about himself and nobody laughs because it's true.
You know you have great friends when you've moved cities 6 times, and no one in your family drives. To everyone who has helped a friend move, you guys are amazing.
I've had a week to study for my last final, but procrastinated the whole week away, and now I'm stuck cramming the night before. Dear brain, FUCK OFF, I need to learn to stop screwing myself over..
Worst thing about end-of-classes; finding a subletter....
Prof just hugged me as I handed in my exam... love her! If anyone wants to take an amazing course with an even better prof take Spanish 101 with B. C.!
Such a sweetheart!
For everyone who's graduating....you will all truly be missed!
Wishing you the best of luck, the remaining UW students. :)
A lot of people on here complain about how much they hate their jobs. Hopefully one day you will find a job that you love. I'm finishing my coop next week and I'd rather stay at work because my job is fun and all of my coworkers are fantastic.
Studying one unit for hours to see that it's not even on the exam.
Reddit look like Waterloo on the front page.
After rereading the thread
, I am even more disgusted by how no one really questions or cares about how much of a man's world this is, how everything is catered to men and their general views of things, and so on. Also, thanks to the women who completely understood what I was getting at, I love you all, you are amazing. Keep being the awesome people you are.

I've always avoided using the "wave here" function on the GRT buses due to stories here about it not working. After observing many people successfully open the doors, I worked up the courage to try it myself. Today, I was the only one getting off my stop. I tried waving by the door. It didn't open. Anxiety spike. I had to yell out that the door wasn't opening. I am mortified - maybe I was doing it wrong.
New goal in life: create a reliable scientific journal that publishes articles in a clear and reader-friendly manner where no small or smudgy fonts are used and nothing is put in two friggin columns. (I realize my sentence in long and poorly phrased but I’m pissed and it’s 4 a.m.)
I solve my relationship problems from the answers people give to the OMGUW Ask questions.
I caught myself passing a good looking guy and thinking "hmm I wonder if he'll write a missed connection about me..." Oh god, so THIS is what my love life has come to.
Now that co-op is done, let's all rate our co-op jobs at http://www.ratemycoopjob.com/
Love those MC exams where almost every question had the option of "a," "b," "c," "a, b, and c" or "a and c" and the b's are always the one you're unsure about.
Dana Porter Library update: guy in front of me says "shit" everytime he gets an answer wrong. Makes me feel better cause he says it a lot ;)
Stop complaining about getting "friendzoned" you fucks.
At this point in the exam season, my brain has quietly resigned
For those that care about The Imprint, read The Problem with The Imprint
. It's a long read, but well worth the time.
Why isn't there any paint on the walls of most buildings at UW?
Apparently profs don't understand that students ALWAYS calculate what they need to get on an exam based on the marks they've gotten so far in the course... we can't do that unless you give us all of our marks back before the exam! I understand you have a lot to do but marking these assignments should be a priority especially if it's worth a high portion of the student's grades!
The prof for ENGL 208C is by far the rudest prof I have ever had!
Wednesday, April 18
Apparently bringing water to your exam helps your grade. Thats it! I'm bringing a box of 24 bottles during my next exam.
Girls, as hard as it is, ignore mass media and the way it depicts what an attractive person should look like. Beauty is not objective, but is subjective. Remember beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, and no matter what, someone will see you as beautiful. Even if you've been up all night studying for an exam, and you perceive yourself to be looking like a mess.
MOD'S NOTE: What about boys?
This is it Waterloo. See you for convocation in June!
Please be considerate to others when you're finished your exam. This applies to being silent as you're leaving the exam early, and when you're finished all of your exams and packing up to leave.
Is anyone in Engineering considering grad school? It seems like almost everyone I talk to just wants to get the hell out.
Just realized I barely drank any water and barely slept in the last 3 days for back to back non-bird courses. Freedom, I am coming for you.
Most disgusting thing happened at Subway in the Plaza today. I ordered a sub and the worker sneezed into his hand. Without changing his glove, he proceeded to dig his filthy, germ ridden hands into the lettuce. I protested and he apologized profusely. If this is the health/safety due diligence they take when a customer is there watching, I wonder what kind of nasty shortcuts these guys take behind the scenes (just visit one of their bathrooms and you'll know what i am taking about.) Never going there again.
Campus Coin Laundry Y U NO PAY RENT?
ugs laundry back home.
The trash can in most bathrooms is right under the paper towel dispenser. How do people still manage to miss? It's things like this that make me wonder what the janitors think of us, not to mention all the disgusting things we see in bathrooms.
Two profs were standing and whispering in front of my desk for most of the exam. The hissing sound made it difficult to concentrate.
To the people I heard gossiping about me, I just wanted to say it really sucks to walk past a group of girls and hear "that's her". You don't even know me and have no right to pass judgments about me just because I have an illness you may not be able to understand.
MOD'S NOTE: Those lousy bastards.
Please remember that life gets better after exams. Just a couple of days more and you can enjoy not thinking about anything!
I am also so stressed that I randomly cried because I was scared, but I toughed it out, went to the library, and killed that exam like a pro.
I feel bad for the kids living at SJ next year. Way too many big changes.
Whenever I'm down because of an exam, the only thing that cheers me up is when other people think they did bad too.
Finished at UW and still a virgin. I should have gone to Guelph.
If you are feeling bored, it is nice to know that Waterloo isn't a complete bore of a city. I wish this site
was around back when I was in first year.
Tuesday, April 17
I felt like screaming and dancing out of the PAC when I finished my last ever exam of Undergrad. Oh wait, I DID. Yay!
Does anyone else have to click "Publish your comment" twice to have work properly?
I've noticed that the ASKs and OMGs about sex always have way more comments than the other ones. MODS, you need to use this to get more people on this site. Off the top of my head: sexier ads, sexier banners, OMGUW sex orgy event?
MOD'S Note: This is not the Toronto Sun.
I can't believe that I am so stressed that I cried when water fell on my notes.
MOD'S NOTE: It gets better soon.
This middle-aged man who always uses the computers in DP is always packing up / fidgeting loudly when he's irritated - which is often. Talking to himself, slamming things on the table. I don't think he realizes no ones gives a crap that he's pissed off at something. I wish he'd just STFU but he's always so self-absorbed and angry that he doesn't care about the looks I give him.
I don't understand people who complain about lack of sleep for university students. I'm in engineering and if I didn't waste so much time, I'd easily sleep 12+ hours a day. I'm wondering if this is all some kinda of an inside joke among university students or people are really working so hard that they don't have enough time for sleep (highly doubtful).
Does no one notice how society sets standards for us? Go to school, get a job and then live the rest of your life working a job that you may, or may not like while competing against your neighbours for the better car etc. Obviously there is more around it. Some people are generally comfortable with it, which is fine. There just needs to be a better range of people out there.. we're all born unique, but end up being clones. It just really gets me thinking.. since my parents try and get me to conform to society, and believe I have to end up like everyone else.. and NOT follow my dreams. Opinions?
So tired I was nearly killed by a GIANT RED Coke truck in front of ML this morning. Huzzah!
Just wanted to remind all the first years: You cant leave during your exam if you pull the fire alarm so stop doing it.
This is my schedule the last few weeks because of exams: Wake up at 1pm, eat, shower, be lazy for an hours, grab a coffee, go to the library, study till 2 or 3am, go home and do it all again. Every single day. What is your schedule?
That awkward look you get when you rub Porcelino's (Arts mascot) nose for good luck.
I always act like I'm tying my shoe on it first and then I go in for the rub!
With all due respect to those with religious values (or strong beliefs about the subject)
Wouldn't it be more appropriate to say "I'm waiting to be in a stable, loving relationship" rather than "I'm waiting until marriage"?
I like what I do in school because it shows me that I may in fact know what I'm doing when everything else in life tells me otherwise.
"Call me maybe" was playing through my mind as I was writing the Chem 123 exam today. Couldn't focus at all.
I don't know if it just because it's exam season or because of the new MODS but I like that this site is updated everyday. It used to be 2-3 times a week.
MOD'S Note: Thanks for noticing.
Yet another UW grad kicking ass
and making dough.
And he hires co-ops!
Monday, April 16
I like how thousands of attentive eyeballs hang onto my every word here. And yet not a single eyeball (or 2 or 3) will make contact on campus. Sigh...
I had a choice of two jobs: one where I do what I love, and one that I hate but would make more money.
I chose the job I loved - money doesn't make people happy, and I'm going to prove that.
Harrison Global Group just rescinded my job offer during exams. Boycott them on jobmine!
Just to be sure, the people in the MCs section are talking about gay crushes right? Since there are no "female women" in Waterloo and all.
Honestly, why is DC so HOT?
While you're writing the exam: you remember exactly what the characters said in the plot-porno you were watching, but not the all important formula you forced yourself to remember.
Stare all you want. I stayed up all night studying and I look like crap, but at this point I don't even care any more.
The moment when you're walking to an exam and almost get run over by a car... and wish that the car *did* hit you, so that you won't have to write the exam after all.
My professor is in DC library at 4:30 AM
Tried Monster for the first time today to help me burn the midnight oil. It tastes like medicine.
I feel like everyone's getting into relationships around this time, even people I viewed as terminally single.
UW subreddit got #4 place in "grow a subreddit" contest. Take that UoT. Take that OMGUW.
MOD'S NOTE: Yeah, in the face OMGUW! You didn't beat us in a contest you couldn't even enter.
KW4RENT rent price increases
I'm just realizing it's April and I should have done more work on my thesis the past 8 months. Too much online COD.
I don't want to be touching your gum or have your boogers stuck to my pants if I fold my legs underneath the table. You're not children grow up people!
I pretty much feel invisible when I am on campus.
Studying for exams hasn't gotten easier over the last four years. It is more painful and life draining than ever. I can't wait to move on.
Why doesn't the Math faculty have an updated website like the rest?
There was a time when I didn't want to have a missed connection with someone. When I ended up dating that person I realized I should have left it an MC...
Saw a road killed rabbit at the train tracks at university ave. The tracks made it even more gruesome... but couldn't find a place to report and have this disturbing crime scene cleaned up
I used to get asked out a lot before I came to UW. But ever since I came here I turned into a foreveralone bitter beast. I really enjoy hearing about other girl's failures. FFFUUUU UW
Sunday, April 15
Possibly had one of the most helpful and inspiring conversations about life and fighting for what you love on the anonymous OMGUW chatroom. Thank you OMGUW, thank you.
I just received an email from "UW Study Aids" offering to sell me last year's final exam for a biology course that I am taking. They are asking $35, and show screen shots of the exam which look highly suspect (like someone took pictures with a cellphone). Does anyone know about this, and does anyone else think this is unfair?!?
100 years ago today the Titanic hit that fateful iceberg.
I hate my past self for not paying better attention in lectures!
I was studying in DP today and these 2 girls sit at a study space a few rows behind me. One of them starts bitching about how she doesn't have enough time to study, so she has to defer an exam. She then proceeds to spend the rest of the evening talking to her friend about stuff of facebook, talking to her friend about some cute pictures, and all kinds of other BS. These 'students' never cease to amaze me.
I just wanted to let the new mods know that you guys are doing a great job. I have noticed that the OMGs and ASKs (only 2 sections worth reading IMO) get updated much more often now and that's great!
Too bad this is my last term and I will soon have no reason to visit this site ;)
I don't know what to do, I always study hard for my exams and midterm and majority of the time I understand the material. But when it comes times to write the exams I never do well! By that I mean I have never gotten a 75+ on any final exam. I dont know what to do anymore, my program needs 70+ avg to stay in and I am honestly really scared that I won't stay in. I can't get kicked out of this program the shame and guilt that I will have to face from myself and my parents. They expect me to do really well, but once they see my grades they will be extremely disappointed. I try hard, but then I still do poorly.
Proctoring an exam? Leave your high heels at home! It sucks already to have to write some of my exams in PAC, but to listen to you clack around for no reason?
Has anyone every gone to the very bottom of the page and clicked the "Bearzilla" link? Thank you MODS for making my day!
To the person who returned my iPod to SLC on April 11, Thanks so much! It was my birthday that day :D
To the sick people in DP/DC/SLC, you've increased my fear greatly since I have a 14 hour flight in 2 days. Please be considerate to the international students who just want to get back home safely... cover yourself with your arms rather than your hands when sneezing/coughing, get a proper sleep before your exam (sleep is more important than studying all night). Not a rant, just some advice. Get well soon and enjoy the summer!
Of course I'd get sick 2 days before my exam...
Chocolate is the only thing reminding me right now that everything is going to be okay.
Saturday, April 14
I love how the homepage on D2L is explaining how they have tried to prevent the crash from reoccurring, yet it's crashing again. The night before my exam for an online course.
Brown "thugs" in SLC courtyard. Who are you kidding with that get-up? You had an adorable puppy named Princess. You ain't thug.
I want to mushroom slap any person who leaves their phone on vibrate, on their desk in the library or in lectures. Silence that shit it's distracting and I don't appreciate the tiny earthquake simulation taking over my desk.
To my fellow undergrads in all faculties, I would like to remind you that your degree is worthless, and that undergrad is a joke. The experience of undergrad, and the connections you build while you are here speak far louder than the piece of paper you receive at the end. Do not expect your degree to get you a job, expect your achievements made along the way as the biggest determiner. This goes for engineers as well. If you do not have the experience and connections to prove your piece of paper is worth something, don't expect to get anywhere
Back your paper, do things that set you apart from your peers, and connect with like minded folk in the field you wish to break into; that is how you will be truly successful, even with a failing grade.
MOD'S NOTE: That's because you're probably in Arts. Just saying.
Two weeks is more than enough to grade an essay. Get off your lazy, fat TA asses and do your jobs. I'd like to know my grade before I walk into my exam, you cockjugglers.
Will there be any OMGUW events any time soon? I want to see RL. :)
MOD'S NOTE: We don't have anything planned yet, but we'll be working on it after exams. Any suggestions?
Note to self; Always keep a toothbrush handy with you during exam time, cause you never know when that son of a bitch will have you spending a whole night in the mc studying. I seriously think back to back exams should be shunned.
I wish I went to Waterloo because I'd love to meet a guy who could actually hold a conversation with me.
2 exams on Friday the 13th WTF =\
My roommate stole something of mine.
I'm having trouble finding a job and am getting bitched at by my family because of it. I fee like a failure and just want to disappear.
I can't get out of bed... I've been in bed for 18 hours... too depressed to move.
So I've studied with a couple different editions of the same textbook this term and haven't been able to notice that many differences...chapter numbers are the same, even figure/table numbers haven't changed. Oh wait! In the fifth edition this diagram of the central nervous system is drawn on a black person's head instead of a white one. I see.
Does it strike anyone else that this school is beyond dull and sucks our souls?
Didn't have time to review my answers for my final today because in the last 10 minutes my stomach started to hurt really badly. Had to finish the last short answer quickly to do a #2 :(
This year has taught me that girls will not wait for you forever. Learn from my mistakes and don't be an indecisive asshat.
I never want to meet the MODs in person, because it might ruin my mental image of them being witty and extremely good looking.
MOD'S NOTE: But events? :(
I don't know what the big deal is about people being loud in the library. Learn to block it out, there's going to be many situations in life outside of your control that bother you more than people talking loudly. This is just like natural selection, university style.
Asians using the middle urinal.
I wish Feds was still part of the Canadian Federation of Students.
You know, it's actually fun to roam around in the library observing all the painful faces. Hey, lest you forget, you can still smile while preparing for an exam.
Whoever made the Phys 122 exam needs to go fuck themselves. 3 long anser questions, 2 are on the first half of the course covered by the midterm, one on the untested part of the course. 16 multiple choice, all incredibly hard as fuck, each involving more work then the long answer questions. Learn how to make a final exam.
I forgot there's a meeting at work today and I didn't dress as formal as I should have.
Seriously? You bitch at me for two hours about not doing well in school, the ridiculous amount of studying your have to do and the possibility of getting kicked out of your program if you don't do well during this exam season, and then I go and run in to you, completely wasted, at our mutual friend's birthday party??

Prepare for the usual summer inactivity of OMGUW unless we all band together and keep it alive!
I saw a guy getting kicked out of the library, after having a heated argument with the security guard who kicked him out.
I am a student and stand for the students. I spoke to the security guard afterwards and he answered all my questions, but one thing he was unable to tell me was WHY: Why are we not allowed to bring food that is not hot nor aromatic, but was once hot, and is now completely cold, into the library.
We are told that this is a policy and we must follow it. How long has this policy been present for (I don't remember this happening in the previous terms)- If it is new we should have gotten a memo of it- clearly telling us why.
If they failed to give us a memo, they should have proper signs telling us what is allowed and what is not. (Their hot/aroma sign just tells us half of the reason why they kick us out.)
We have the right to know why at least, especially when they decided to enforce this on us at 2am -the night before your exam, for example.
Is there a reason why so many people study on campus during exams? I find that that the best place to get any serious studying done is at home where you can be "in your zone"
The moment when you realize 4 of your OMGs got posted on the same day. I should be studying, but so should the MODs.
That night before the exam, when you are reviewing your midterm and you realize you should have gotten 10% less than what you actually got, at least.
Spring, I’ve been waiting weeks for you. Just come already! I want to feel your warmth all over my face.
I scared a goose today. Sweet revenge.
Trust me, they go crazy if you sneak up on them. Hilarious.
I have an exam tonight at 7:30pm, and around 4pm I get an email saying "Does anyone know what's on the final exam??"
Why even bother at that point?
PAC - Where dreams have gone to die since 1968.
Ohhh I get it, you are posting a missed connection between your fist and someone's face, or between the bumper of your car and somebody's ass, heheheh wow that is soooo funny and clever!
It enrages me when people bring their laptop to a computer room (like DC or DP) and then sit their laptop beside or on top of the keyboard, and don't even use the desktop computer. I don't care if you're there to be sitting beside a friend, it is EXTREMELY rude and selfish! I'm trying to use these rooms because I do NOT have a laptop on campus, that's the whole damn point! Go sit somewhere else if you're not even going to use the desktop computer. I'm always afraid to approach them to ask for their spot.
The University would benefit from an anonymous online tip line for noisy people at the library. Send in where people are being noisy, and a librarian or library worker comes by to tell them to shut up.
We can do it! Let's ace these exams!
To the guys who were playing Counter Strike in E5 on Monday during peak studying hours. Made me feel nostalgic :(. I remember the days when I used to play CS...
I hate walking behind smokers and breathing in their second hand smoke. Nothing against them but I hate the smell and really don't have a choice when walking in a crowd.
To the guy at CIF on Wednesday morning with the bright orange shirt and the fauxhawk - instead of moving my water bottle onto the floor and taking over the treadmill while I grabbed a cloth, maybe you could have waited for me to clean my equipment and collect my belongings. Patience is a virtue.
Just because you're wearing earphones doesn't mean the entire room can't hear your loud music. Everyone is studying. Why don't you?
Ah yes, it dawns on you that you are truly a UW student when you don't sleep and decide to take a small nap before studying more around the time that the sun is rising and the sky is slowly getting brighter.
That horrible moment at 3:32 am when you realize you should have slept earlier because now if you sleep, there's a chance of missing the exam next morning.
Why is there so much roadkill in Waterloo...?
Coop is an excellent source of UW MCs, or am I the only one that finds this?
Wednesday, April 11
There should be an OMGUW app.
People that patrol DC need to get their shit together. Me and my friend left at the same time for lunch and all my shit got taken away. Also they left my crap on some shelf next to an elevator, some freak could have taken everything.
There's a guy walking around DC in a "Forever Alone" T-shirt... hilarious!
To those people in the nice cubes in DC, do your work and don't just sit around playing Tetris, Starcraft, watching tv, etc. People would kill for the spot you are not using. I say everyone that is looking for a seat there to study peacefully should just stand right beside said person and stare until they leave or get back to work.
Smells like piss in the SJ hallways... SJ FTW.
Craigslist? Kijiji? Waterloo OCH? Why bother! I'll just put up ads for a sublet in the men's washroom
Not pictured: "Is vickie included?"
You know you're screwed for an exam when...
...you see your prof for the first time during the final.
...you need to check the exam's front page to find out the course code to fill out your scantron.
...the only questions on the first page that you know the answers to are Name and Student ID
Add your own!
MOD'S NOTE: ... you're asking for help on OMG ASK.
After 4 years I am convinced that the reason I don't have (or never have had) a girlfriend who goes to Waterloo is that I am in the Faculty of Math. I mean, I have had 2 girlfriends in this span of time, both from McMaster. I am not socially awkward, I don't live a secret double life in a video game and I don't look like I have lived in the MC for the last few months. On the contrary, I am quite personable, get along really well with women and I am fairly good looking. Math is really great in a lot of ways besides this. I don't have super high standards or anything. But I find even the most averagely good looking girl (in Math) is either crowded by too many dudes or already has a boyfriend.
During finals, every one gets so hissy/possessive about their property, kinda like the geese, or maybe we all just start PMSing like bitches (guys included).
-My friend's scarf settled on your book. Didn't have to be so anal about it and throw it on the side.
-My friend was using your extension because it looked like a public one. Didn't have to give a speech about what you appreciate and what you don't.
-DC sucks in general during finals because of the people.
So out of the percent of our grade that has already passed -- not based on our finals, I literally have like 50's in all of my subjects. What have I been doing all term?
Worked my ass off for an exam that was today and it totally killed me. I have another tomorrow and I can't even bring myself to studying for it after that crushing defeat :(
Lying down, studying on bench with little holes in it, my anklet charm got stuck in a hole. Trying to fix it, I was half on and half off the bench, butt in the air, and head bent to crotch area trying to get a better look at my ankle... awkward?
PHYS 124... That was painful.
That awesome moment during a final exam when the bonus question is "Name one winner in the Plant Motion Picture Awards" and the answer is YOUR name =D
So I was procrastinating studying for exams by browsing various archive sections of this site, when I came across this MC
. Holy crap that's a lot of comments. OP totally pussed out too.
Of the five years I have been in UW, I have yet to be attacked by a goose.
To the goose outside PAC who attacked me: I'm requesting an arrest warrant for you on the INTERPOL website. "Categories of Offences: assault, (possible) sex crimes"
The people who work at the University Club are really rude.
Mother Nature decided to visit me during my first exam.
Tuesday, April 10
Hey OMGuwites, it's the new Mods here (Mod G, L, and Y). We want to thank you for your continued support and give you a chance to make comments/ suggestions and ask questions about the site in this post. We'll be paying close attention to the comments over the next few days and will be responding as needed.
Hi new mods! Tell us something interesting about yourselves.
MOD G: Something interesting, eh? Hmm... I've had hair of every natural colour at some point (and some unnatural colours like purple, green, and pink).
MOD L: I got my ear pierced when I was younger to look like Aaron Carter.
MOD Y: I exist. I can also recite the alphabet backwards in 3 languages.
I was in Systems Design Engineering but people weren't talking enough shit about what I was doing, so I switched to Arts.
God I hate my roommate right now! I wish she would stop complaining about me not doing anything and actually recognize that I am not doing anything because she gets to it first. Fuck, have a little faith in your roommates.
You are not "forever alone" when you are 20.
I get that it hurts if your crush/love-interest isn't interested back and that being into a friend is tough. But guys, you need to realize it's kind of creepy and underhanded when you start whining about being "friendzoned"... how long were you being sweet and kind to her for the sole sake of getting into her pants or dating her? It's dishonest, and made worse by the fact some of you seem to think she owes you her body and heart now. On top of that, this type of guy seems to think this makes him a nice/good guy compared to the assholes their crush dates, but here you are trying to use friendship / faked human decency as coercion for sex/dating. If she's not into you, that's that.
Studying is so much easier with half off easter chocolates. I'm gonna waddle out of this exam like a CHAMP.
I hate it when the OMGUW banner tells me that I should be studying and it's right.
Here's a tip guys: a good nights sleep will help you more on your exam than the extra hours of studying would.
Monday, April 9
I hate that a single poor grade on one test can completely ruin my career plans. One extremely unfair exam and I have completely lost everything I have spent years working towards. What am I supposed to do now?
When you asked if the cubicle next to me was free I thought you were going to study. If I knew you would be sniffling and burping incessantly while reading manga on your laptop I might have lied and said I was saving it for somebody.
E5 is DISGUSTING right now. It smells of food. And there are little flies EVERYWHERE. I'm getting out of here. But seriously people, throw out your trash!
Silent study. SILENT study. Do people not know what the word "silent" means? Thank God for the librarians that shhhh gabbers.
Sorry to whoever buys my cognitive psych textbook next. I drew a lot of diagrams in pen to try to explain the confusing stuff to myself. Hope you find them equally helpful.
Sitting by a window in DC. Cute guy either keeps looking at me or out the big window I'm at. I will never know since I left the spot because I got so distracted by bikers going by.
Well. It's that time of year again, and the revelation hits me hard: online course, why did I ever EVER pay attention to you instead of ignoring you and just reading the textbook instead? Textbooks seem to know how to teach better than teachers online... why do I bother? Yey, read 4/12 chapters, exam 60% on Saturday, the day of rest. Nothing I would rather do than wake up early, write an early exam worth 60% on a course that isn't easy and is online.... Anyone in the same boat?
Read + energy drink + read + water + read + energy drink. Dang, how am I supposed to stay awake AND focus when I keep needing to pee?
Received an outstanding on my co-op! Woohoo!
I have never called my exam rude so many times in my head than I did today. It just set you up for failure. When I am studying I am not looking at what so and so looks like, I am reading the content. What's on my exam? Tell me who this person is below the pixelated picture.
I just un-friendzoned a guy. Best decision. I've never been treated so well <3 DO IT LADIES (and guys)!
Heavily-weighted final exams make me want to punch a goose. If 60% of your grade is determined in 2.5 hours, something is wrong.
Anyone know what's going on with the construction at the old Mel's site?
Thank you to the girl in DP that told the chatty guy and girl to be quiet since she had an exam (I was right near them and felt like kicking their legs under the desk). Unfortunately they did not get the message and their constant whispering is driving me crazy.
Does anyone else get annoyed when people post on Facebook or other social networks about how easy an exam was, or am I the only person that feels worse after writing an exam?!
I love when "friends" make the effort to stay in touch over the summer.
I AM SLEEPY ALL THE TIME!
The university makes makes us submit our intellectual property to private companies like "turnitin". We should have access to it when performing group work if all members may be subject to punitive measures.
I swear the dons trained that goose to stand guard so no one can use the side door at Wilmot.
I have a serious concern. You know how we're paying thousands of dollars in fees for tuition at Waterloo? How is it that it feels like the profs and tutors aren't there to help? I'm so lost in most of my courses sometimes and its not like I do not try keeping up. I guess I'm just sick of feeling like an idiot and should start getting used to the university setting. You're on your own here.
MOD'S NOTE: Office hours?
Librarians, or some STAFF of UW: Please fix the lights on the cubicles at the library. It's exam time. Students are stressed and extremely busy with studying. We don't want to move from desk to desk trying to find a study space.
To the guys who use the bathroom in DC, you make the bathrooms in third-world countries seem like heaven some days.
Sunday, April 8
Love seeing the squirrels chowing down on pizza, looks like exam season is hitting them hard too.
Whenever I see graffiti on the DC cubicles about how much people hate UW, it makes me incredibly sad. I'm sorry so many people aren't enjoying their experiences here. I really love this school and all the people here. I hope things can get better for them.
What’s up with the strike Uptown Waterloo yesterday? Does anyone know what that was about? "Jesus is God" was on a bunch of posters.
The feeling you get when you realize that the dry erase marker was really a sharpie...
I just realized that I check Piazza for my CS class for the same reason I check OMGUW or FML. This stuff is hilarious!
something about your school, so you can bicker with facts.
OMGUW should set up a used textbook selling/buying section!
Don’t write a MC and then not follow up when people ask questions. That’s like asking for more failure.
I had someone change my Facebook password so I would stay off of it and study, that was 20 minutes ago, I feel like I'm going through withdrawal! This is bad. MODs, please don't ever make accounts with passwords on here or anything.
Happy Easter everyone! =)
MATH138 exam on Monday and I’m only finished 8/36 lecture notes. Yay!
MOD'S NOTE: I remember that class. Good luck!:)
I'm not generally a very opinionated person, and I'm not very good at holding my stance in an argument since I'm so open-minded. I'm very easily swayed to the opposing side, and I hate disagreeing with people. After spending so much time on this site, I was finally comfortable enough to post a reasonably opinionated status to my Facebook. When someone tried to argue with me on the subject, I was able to intelligently and eloquently defend my opinion and my personality from disparaging remarks that were thrown my way. More importantly, I publicly held onto what I believed in, and didn't give into someone who was throwing loud, mean words at me. I guess what I'm trying to say is thank you to everyone at OMGUW (the mods, bloggers, and non-bloggers) for giving me the life skills to be an insightful, thoughtful debater.
I feel like I’m the only non-brown person on the 2nd floor of SLC right now.
ILUs are just the worst.
MOD'S NOTE: Opinions on this?
Why do I have the attention span on a fly? Can't make myself focus and study!
The more I study, the more I realize I am entirely screwed for my exam. I slightly pray for a mini-zombie apocalypse, so I don't have to write my exam Monday. That, or take all my money, move to Africa, and start a new, non-education filled life.
MOD'S NOTE: Good luck! Hopefully you do better than you're expecting!
Trying desperately to actually start studying for exams.
Why is PAS such a maze? I just want to find a washroom. :'(
UW needs a few more random, energetic flash mobs like these
So I was just crossing the Ring Road (near PAS) like usual, and I heard an unusually loud engine sound. Instinctively I ran to a safer spot. I turned around and saw a green car had lost control and drove onto the grass on the other side of the road, then drove off like nothing happened. If I left home a minute later, I might have been hurt! Don't know if the guy was trying to drift, but it was very dangerous! Be safe out there guys.
Saturday, April 7
I go out for lunch after receiving an email from the grad advisor saying I got NSERC along with 24 other people. (NSERC = funding = I can stay here for grad school.) I come back an hour later - it turns out he had the wrong list, and only two PhD applicants got the award. Booooooo.
If the University doesn't feel guilty giving us exams on Monday, then they should provide us a way to eat while we're on campus over the weekend while studying. Not all of us can afford to go home with our workloads. Damn timmies and the SLC.
It absolutely makes my day when people who are working just stop what they're doing to sing along to Call Me Maybe when it comes onto the radio
Ahh, health services' ineffectual campaign to encourage stair use has reared its head again.
We should have a hug event. :) Who's in?
I wonder how many posts MODs actually get in a day that never get published...
MOD'S NOTE: About 5%.
Darn you waterloo and making me addicted to Tetris Battle...I tried so hard not to start playing it but after seeing so many people playing it during class I knew I had to try it at home! Curses!
I heard RL got the mod job.... it's been a good run, OMGUW. Good bye.
MOD'S NOTE: False.
Am I the only one who hates whoever came up with the back door design for the GRT buses?
I can't count the number of times I've stood there waving like a lunatic and then gotten yelled at by the driver for "not doing it right"
To the guy laughing like a hyena on DP 5th floor, at least pretend to work in a library.
MOD'S NOTE: Needs more lasers.
What if the UW admin had their lawyers look over the song issues with the lipdub and there weren't any problems. The problem was it was just way too shit, like the Toronto one???
My next week's going to be complete hell, with 3 essays and 2 exams. I'm dying on the inside. :(
I feel like I need to remind UW students of the great "Imagine" song by John Lennon:
Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people sharing all the world
Will I ever learn not to put my foot in my mouth?
Davis Centre security guard told me to leave the cubicle because I had hot food. I told him it wasn't hot or aromatic. He said "You can't have hot food, it doesn't matter if its cold or not". It was a day-old croissant in a paper bag.
So, I started this volunteer job with FedS a few months ago. While doing this job, I met a girl. I was already completely smitten by the time I learned she was seeing someone else. Now I'm in love with a girl I can't have. Why does everyone at this school have to be in a relationship with their high school sweethearts?!
I love when I get into a cubicle at DP, turn on the light, and once I set up all my stuff... the light turns off ... whyyyyyyy :(
Staring at me awkwardly and then asking what's wrong with me is not the right way to go about asking someone why they're in a wheelchair.
Friday, April 6
Good luck to everyone on their finals.
Thursday, April 5
To all the sweet and supportive upper-year guys at the engineering boat races: thanks for not making a small frosh girl feel completely stupid at my first races :) I had a lot more fun than anticipated! thanks for being amazing, and hopefully see you all around campus
Getting your car's window smashed open and your backpack with your laptop in it stolen 2 weeks before exams start is not the greatest way to end this term.
MOD'S NOTE: That sucks. All the best from now on, OP.
So many people in DP are stepping into the stairwell to take phone calls. Clearly they don't realize the sound of their insipid conversation is just being amplified for all to hear, maybe louder than if they had just started talking on the phone at their desk.
I just wrote the ELPE but I forgot to title it and I didn't have time to proof read it.
I have a very hard time believing, with the term wrapping up and all, that there are no Missed Connections to be posted.
MOD'S NOTE: and voila.
Some TA's just hate compromising or admitting that they're wrong and it drives me crazy!
Has anyone ever actually won one of the free iPads promised by the school/feds surveys we all fill out?
MOD'S NOTE: D2L downtime submissions!
3 days to exams and D2L wants to play games with students. We are going to shut down the site for maintenance, now what fuckers!
D2L IS DOWN AND IM FREAKING OUT!
Desire to learn desires me to fail my exam.
D2L, I haven't had any troubles with you this entire term, why must you go down NOW when I'm trying to study for finals?
Have you guys seen this
? Any idea wtf it's all about?
That awkward moment when you check Jobmine more often than your Facebook.
Saw a goose almost get hit by a vehicle because it was chasing another goose out of the territory, right into the middle of Ring Road. Luckily, the driver stopped in time.
Be alert, those geese will stop at nothing!
There are days when I wish it would be okay for me to go and put my head on a friend's lap while I lie down. It would be nice for someone to give me a tight hug and hold on to me. That's all I really want when I feel lonely in Waterloo. I just can't go to my roommates and do this stuff :(.
~ From a guy who wants someone to comfort him.
To the poor guy on the iexpress at 10:17 on Wednesday, you are clearly in the friend zone. I hope you didn't buy her too many drinks that night.
If you think the anxiety before exams is bad, you haven't experienced the first few days right after you're done. I hate having nothing to do!
Oh you hate receiving emails from the University asking for your opinion? 1. They are valuing your opinion which is awesome. 2. It takes seconds to delete it. 3. Free iPad. Stop complaining please
Seriously, you're all adults. Get over what people are wearing.
I know a great place to sit and chat! The DC basement is so nice during exam time. I don't always come here to study, but when I do I don't shut the fuck up.
Wednesday, April 4
When driving, if you can't safely clear the intersection, do not enter it.
Driver's ed 101
My motivation to study has already hit rock bottom.
That awkward moment when you think you got a job and start an acceptance letter, then receive an email about 'not hiring you yet, let's check your background'
Since it's getting warmer out - guys on campus, STOP wearing long socks with shorts. It looks gross. Invest in ankle socks or no-show socks.
They need to fix the 10th floor mens washroom stall doors. Opening/closing one causes the other to fly open... lol
MOD'S NOTE: Can someone .gif this and post it here?
Not hating on RL, but so many comment threads become centred around him. Its getting tiresome. I don't know if I am the only one that finds this a nuisance
Co-ops, check this
I find it absolutely ridiculous that the president-elect of our student society feels it is okay to endorse a campaign of someone running in a club election.
Gooodluck everyone for their exams. All UW students are smart an have the capability of passing all their courses. God Bless everyone :)
Why are librarians so bitchy about call numbers. The textbook name, author, and course should be more than sufficient.
To the Asian couple in the basement of DC. Get a room, this place is for studying, I don't want to see you fondling each other. Please share her if you are going to do this
I was dozing in and out of consciousness while staring out the window from my study carrel in DP and had the weirdest dream. The smokestacks on the Nano building were an army of penises and they were valiantly battling against the gigantic penis smokestack on the building next to M3. Needless to say, it didn't end well for them.
I lost my phone on the bus last night, Monday, April 2. If anyone found it please please give it in to turnkey or grt. Thank you so much in advance!
Dr. Richard Ennis' Doppleganger
It's good to know the geese are just as crazy at UTSC.
If you are distracted or annoyed by sounds when studying such as talking, coughing, sniffing, etc. check out white noise maker
It has changed my life :D
I want to teach overseas, all I learned from 4 years of AFM.
First year Math student. Term is over & exams are going to be over soon. Still unemployed. :( So stressed...
Tuesday, April 3
FEDS has threatened to dissolve MathSoc if MathSoc does not sign the Societies Agreement as is. MathSoc has passed the agreement with amendments. Read more here
To people who have a persistent cough: stay home from the library. If you can't stop coughing then don't go somewhere that is completely silent, because it is very irritating to everyone trying to work.
Plus it's much easier to ask someone to stop talking as opposed to stop performing bodily functions, so I don't know how to ask you to be quiet.
Fighting with your roommate is the worst, especially when it can't be solved with just doing the dishes.
Does anyone know what's going in that new building behind health services? At first I thought oh I'll just figure it out when I get back in September...then I remembered how long construction takes on this campus.
The lack of respect for certain faculties is extremely disappointing. Each faculty has it's challenges but you wouldn't know what those were unless you were IN said faculty. The faculty of arts for example; we'll send out psychologists to give your shitty future kids therapy because mommy/daddy work too much or are self centered douche bags. We send out lawyers to help you when said kid resorts to deviance to get your attention, we send out teachers to educate your children to get them to where you currently are, etc.. and every other faculty has it's strengths as well. Just because people choose arts courses as electives doesn't necessarily make it easier, they're just more interesting than a lot of other courses, don't be jealous that we're doing what we want with life and you're doing what your parents want.
tl;dr stfu about how much better your faculty is than everyone elses
inb4. As a math student, I support MathSoc whatever they do or say. Bandwagon FTW.
I guess you could say UWSP's earth hour event was somewhat of a success, but UWSP is extremely unorganized, the activities were just a jumble of things with all the directors and volunteers running around frantically, confused about what to do.
DC library windows turn into mirrors at night! Soooooo distracting -_-
People playing basketball at REV basketball courts @ 3am, WTF how can you even see the ball?
I feel sorry for the people who live across the court and have to hear the sounds
Time to gear up, it's almost exam time. Or as Arts students call it, Frisbee and Early Vacation Time.
Co-op reminds me of school :(
Waking up early. Just sitting around doing nothing.
Longing to go home.
Keep checking the time for 4pm.
Delight when you get done with the day!
I posted not too long ago about how I thought I held the record for the most unranked interviews... well I finally did get a job offer! I learned from every single interview I had messed up on in the past and I prepared extra hard and I got a job that I am very proud of. If I can do it, so can all of you. Don't ever give up!
MOD'S NOTE: Repost, but its just so amazing!
Guys at the gym, please workout your legs. Buff upper bodies with skinny legs looks really weird and unattractive
I'm a computer science student and I feel like I'm not qualified to get any job.
I couldn't find my headphones. Had to watch porn on mute. Living with roommates sucks sometimes
is so much fun!
Thank you to all the people who have been opening doors for me around the campus lately.
It's great to know that the campus community is indeed getting better.
Keep it up, UW!
I wonder if anyone fell for the lipdub April fools post.
MOD'S NOTE: Heh...
Than =/= then, there=/=their=/=they're, papers=/=Internetz
I went to waterloo to write the AFMAA. Hopefully I've performed well enough and will be able to write on here as an attending student this coming fall, not a creeping high schooler.
Noticed some duck couples on campus. Oh, if only our campus was filled with ducks instead of geese. By the looks of it though the geese are bullying the ducks to try and scare em off.
Yaaaaay lectures are finished on TODAY!
Oh yeah and the exams are next. NBD.
Never have I in my life had a desire so strong, as to want to pack up my things, grab my car, and leave everything.
Arts Grad Ball was shit. But thanks for organizing it ASU, better than nothing.
