|OMG UPDATE: Some changes are coming to OMGUW very soon, stay tuned!
Wednesday, August 29
I've broken up with my best friend by circumstance. If I were dating her, I'd go out to find all those other fish in the sea--it'd be easy. But she was my best friend.
Mixed signals are the worst. Guys, don't blow hot and cold. If you like someone don't play games.
So many chicks on this campus are so RATCHET! Seriously, the geese have better style
Move in day is fast approaching! I missed you, Waterloo!
Now that I genuinely like a girl, I stopped masturbating. I just don't have the drive for it. The only problem is I can't ask her out :(
I am really unimpressed that the welcome week website still has the 2011 banner on it.
Just let a fart slip on the job, probably the loudest fart of my life... Super embarrassing.
Why do I have so much stuff??? I hate packing so much.
Let me get this straight, we're getting rid of FEDS HALL and building a NEW student building? Well that's a damn good way to spend my tuition...

This past term was a strong reminder of how unwilling students in my program (AFM), and the SAF in general, are in trying to work together on challenging topics. When I came to this school, it was with the hope of collaborating with other students who shared similar views and goals. Now it's beginning to feel like no one cares about working together; it's more about serving self-interest. When did we start turning into such pompous pr*cks??!
Even as a non-engineer student at UW, this is hilarious. I wish I had the brains to be an engineer student though! (anything math related is rocket science to me).
I might have fallen for my roommate....
Getting my first home, so exciited!!!
NOOOOOOOOOOOO! Ish and Chips burned down.
Ever since OMGASK started, people have stopped putting in effort to google things. Come on people, our school is getting so lazy!
I am tired of being whistled at! I will admit that it boosts my self esteem, especially with a new look that I am unsure about, but if would make me feel a bajillion times better if someone actually came up to me and said "Hey, you know what, you're really pretty" and then went on their way.
Lets go Waterloo! Another busy fall is almost upon us again! Show your true colours!
Dear boys at UW, please get hotter, cause I'm significantly running out of girl options...
Wednesday, August 22
I feel like I can identify certain comments in comment sections with certain types of people I meet on campus.
ex broke my heart and I want to stay away from him so badly that I
almost dont want to return to UW after my co-op term ends this summer.
This fear I will hide though, I'll act as if nothing's bothering me,
nothing at all.
I ever hear a university student say this guy/girl is out of my league
I'll slap them. Seriously, this is not high school anymore! I'm tired of
hearing my friends telling me this or that is out of my league. Grow
up. You wanna know why that guy/girl wont go out with you? Its not
because they're out of your league, its because you're an unconfident
person! How do you expect someone to love you when you don't love
WHY is this DE course taking so long to post the marks? Any one still waiting for their marks?
been living in a developing country until I got here at UW just 48
hours earlier. I feel so ashamed that I can't resist to drink the raw
tap water here, because you know, in my country, this kind of behavior
might get you killed so I've rarely done that before. I find myself astonishingly cheap.
requiring to withdrawal after one year at Waterloo due to some really
bad habits I had taken up I decided to take a year off to collect
myself. Now as I see it I simply dont have it in me to go back. I
commend all of you who stay vigilant in your studies.
For those still contemplating grad school, let this
be a reminder if you haven't seen it yet.

Mods: What's the most awkward OMG you've rejected?
MOD'S Note: I'll give you sort of an example below.
am turned on. And I won't hump anybody unless I'm in a serious
relationship. I lost my vibrator. And I don't like touching myself, it
doesn't work for me. BUT IM SO TURNED ON.
MOD'S Note: Indeed.
am so bad with men. I'm beautiful. That gets men talking to me for a
minute or two. But after that, its the personality that matters. And I
have no clue how to flirt, how to remain interesting, etc.
Well at least we're not Kinesiology students at Laurier...
guys should ask girls out. Don't let it be an MC. If you see a girl you
think is attractive, just ask her out, even if you think she's out of
your league. Chances are she'll respect you for having guts. And girls,
give the guy a chance, its just a date not a commitment.
has been redone!
TIL: Apparently male athletes are called 'Warriors' and female athletes are called 'Athenas' at Waterloo.
Getting real tired of the engineering elitists.
I can't find any info about welcome week. No free concert this year?
Wednesday, August 15
Why doesn't Waterloo have a track? Why is the pool only 25m instead of the real size of 50m? Our athletic facilities are the equivalent of a high school in Kansas, meanwhile other schools get funding up the wazoo to improve theirs.
Holy shit. I got my first 90 in university... never thought this would happen. My hard work has paid off.
My TA came up on Grindr. Awkward.
Thanks a lot, Ministry of the Attorney General. The last thing I wanted to get three weeks before I leave for my Fall work term is a goddamn Jury Summons.
Seriously, how long does it take to fix a bank of lights? I can't stand the PAC pool being closed :(

Dear Food Services: believe it or not people still work on this campus and would like to buy from the SLC Tim Horton's before they go to their jobs. I know money is very tough for the university over the next 2 weeks. However, if you could somehow absorb the $76 in wages it costs to open at 6:30 am instead of 7:30 am, it would be much appreciated by the customers. I am sure the costs will be recovered when the campus returns to full swing.

Here comes the end of another co-op term. Remember to rate your co-op job
I love that feeling of passing a course you weren't sure if you were going to pass or not!
Thanks waterloo! I appreciate that you waited all this time to tell me I owe you 50 dollars. I also really REALLY appreciate that you will likely withhold my exam results, thereby leaving me to wonder if I have passed or failed. I hate you. Enjoy your fifty bucks, maybe make another bridge between two buildings with doors ten meters apart with it.
I like to call Waterloo "Eau de Toilette" since water = eau, and loo = toilette (in French)
MOD'S NOTE: As in a lightly scented perfume?
Undergraduate 4 months = almost $9000 now. Tuition grew more than four times Consumer Price Index inflation this year. Should I organize a protest?
At UW BYOB means Bring Your Own Books.
Friday, August 10
I like the geese on campus more than the people on campus.
Why are all the engineering buildings grey ? Have you heard of primary colors?
I don't think girls appreciate the fact that they don't get BSTL in hot weather enough.
a school filled with top engineering and computer science students, I'm
surprised a military technology/weapons manufacturing company isn't
located in Waterloo, anyone down to start Stark Industries?
MOD'S Note: Raytheon?
sucks to stay until the last day of exams because of MSCI 261. It's one
of the most useless courses I've had the pleasure of being forced to
I wonder if I am the only one who has to drop by all PAC entrances to
figure out the correct one to step in for an exam as UW Odyssey
Wednesday, August 8
Going commando because I haven't had the time to do my laundry!
I'm waiting until the last day to pay my fall tuition so I can enjoy looking at my co-op money in the bank for a little bit longer.
I don't think that guys appreciate the fact that they don't have a uterus enough.
What's the point of showing the final under grades in Learn, if the grade for your final never actually gets posted to Learn...
If you have a job where you have to clean up after students, this place stops feeling like a university and starts feeling like a glorified day-care.
It's amazing how people try to appease their guilt after hurting someone. If you think you hurt someone, deal with it. If you apologize, do it because you're sorry, not because you want to remove your guilt. If you do something sweet, do it because you care, not because you want to erase the guilt.
What happened to the chat? What's going on Mods? Fix it! Please fix the chat! I demand it. How else will I communicate with fellow chatspeakers, huh? I miss random people who enter it. Will they stay long? Will they say "hi" and then leave? I don't know, because the chat feature isn't working.
MOD'S NOTE: We're looking into the issue and will update when we find out more.
I want the ILU section back, just so I can express my love for Ryan Lochte.
Memorization of formulae is the most useless exercise that this university makes you go through for some of the stupidest courses going. I put it to you OMG who is smarter the person who can recite 100 formulas or the person who can apply 100 formulas after looking at it? It's ridiculous how some courses are treated. I didn't come here to become a parrot.
Sometimes I read the comments on here and wonder if these people got through the same requirements I did.
I need someone to talk to. I just need someone to talk to. I just really really need someone to talk to. How hard can that be? All my friends are busy. And I'm so alone. I feel like I'm going crazy
MOD'S NOTE: You can always email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Hang in there, OP!
To the brunette with a bird tattoo on her back who told 4 incredibly noisy guys to quiet down in the lower level of DC: you're a hero :) Thanks! They needed that.
To the person who accidently walked away from the DC ATM without his/her cash... I took the liberty of holding onto it for you and will turn it in at the bank tomorrow. I noted the time and location, so hopefully this will be enough to make it back to you. :)
Monday, August 6
I hate that feeling of not being 100% sure if you passed or failed a course after writing the exam.
To the inconsiderate twats that left a ton of food garbage at the front of MC 4041... Congratulations, you are scumbags. I for one would appreciate these classrooms being left open for us to use, not closed down because of dumbasses.
I'm so scared. I really need a hug. I wish I had a family. Friendship doesn't last.
MOD'S NOTE: *virtual hug* Hang in there, OP!
It's super hypocritical of UW to pretend to support feminism when they still call it woMAN's studies
Why would you take up an entire group study room by yourself to facebook and skype your mom in the dark?
Why don't they cement the diagonal path in DC quad? It's gets all mucky when it rains.
I need to start wearing something to identify myself with at CIF, just so that way I will know if any MCs are written about me
It's been two years since I graduated and I still follow this blog. What the eff is wrong with me?
Friday, August 3
Are they trying to freeze us to death in the PAC?
DP, I am not a contortionist, please move the plug outlets where they are visible!
For students coming to the library early in the morning to save seats for your friends, it's nice, but don't save five seats and leave them unoccupied until 4-5pm in the afternoon. They are not your personal desks, they are there for the students to share. It is completely rude and inconsiderate.
I hate it when people refer to Waterloo as "loo"!
What do you guys think is the most bullshit program offered by Waterloo?
How many boyfriends would expect their girlfriends to be on birth control pill?
Last month, police charged a University of Waterloo copy centre supervisor with fraud totaling $955,000.
Wednesday, August 1
Think I learned now that when the prof says the final exam is cumulative, it usually always means you'll have 1 or 2 questions pre-midterm material.
LEARN trying to log me out every hour wouldn't be so bad if it weren't for the 3+ focus-stealing alert boxes I have to dismiss. Why is this even a feature?
GF missed period despite being on birth control. I am scared shitless. I know sex is on everyone's minds all the time, and yeah it is fun, but the repercussions are heavy if you don't take the extra precaution needed. Be careful.
I hate passive aggressive people.
One more cell phone robber is off the streets.
Is it just me or did Fall term tuition increase by about $600? Did I miss something?
The students working the grass crews on campus are so lazy. I watched out my res window as one of them went around the building with a string trimmer. She would shut it off, walk 5 feet, stop, fire it up again, rinse and repeat. I did this shit when I was in like grade 8, several hours a day, and moved way faster than this. I also frequently see them standing around, or hiding in the shed by REV.
It's kind of irritating when profs post old exams and practice problems, and then you realize that all the questions on the sample problems are either also on the assignments from this term, or used as examples in lectures.
I'm sick of people saying the people at this school suck! I've met tons of cool people. You're probably an asshole and/or close minded.
The only reason I haven't switched out of UW at this point is because I'm going into my 4th year. This place is the biggest shithole I've ever been at, it doesn't care about it's students in the least unless you're an engineer.
My skill at rote memorization is failing me as I age. Statistics, it's been a short and painful relationship, and I hope that come Monday morning we can both go our separate ways.
If there is an OMG or Missed Connection about you when there shouldn't be, let a moderator know so the creepy / offending post will be taken down.
OMG HELP: There are a lot of lonely people at this school. If you need to talk to someone you can call the distress line at (519) 745-1166 for supportive confidential listening. If you are in crisis you can call the crisis line (519) 744-1813 or toll free at 1-866-366-4566. These lines are open 24 hours a day everyday.
