Registration is open!

….For first years. And at this point, only some of them.

The late ones are still better off than any of the uppers years though. Out of all the undergraduates at UBC, second years get the last pick.  This year, second-year registration is July 8th-12th. Mine is July 9th, at 1:45pm.

The most worrying part is that already, the elective courses I want to take are filling up. Fast. I’m looking at you PHYS 101.

Nah, I’m just kidding. Wait list, here I come!

Post-unboxing and posts to come

So I got that tablet I was talking about! Squeeeeeeeee.

Of course, I opened it as soon as I came home, and tried it out as soon as I could. I’m pretty happy with it! It’s a little weird scribbling on the tablet while looking in a different direction, but I’ll get used to it.

I’m still waiting to download the included software (Photoshop, ermagerd), so I don’t have any fancy programs to scribble with. Therefore, my drawings won’t look the same was before, unfortunately 🙁

I ignored punctuation on purpose, I swear.

However, I am now more determined to blog more, with more pictures. Expect to see:

  1. A post about a disaster averted with the help of a friendly UBC staff member, and
  2. A post about what I was even doing at UBC in the first place (y’know, because no school and everything).

My name is Courtney, and I am going to BLOG MORE FREQUENTLY


Guess what?

My mum agreed to get me a graphics tablet (this one, to be exact).Do you know what that means?


The Future SUB

Can’t you just imagine it? Like now, it’s all like

“Yeah just going to the SUB for lunch”

But next year it’ll be like

“Yeah buddy just going to hang out in the SUUUUB” *pull on sunglasses*

We’ll be the coolest school in Western Canada.

How to find places at UBC

So I’m going to a training session at UBC today (more on the session later), and it’s at UBC’s football field.

I’m going to massively (and possibly wrongly) generalize here, but I’d say the average student hasn’t gone out to Thunderbird Stadium (the football field). Part of the reason is that it’s far—too far for me to even know where it is.

Thus, I turned to the internet for help!

UBC has an online service called Wayfinding that makes finding things on campus simpler. There’s a search bar to enter the address/building name, or there are QuickLinks on the right-hand side that contain the more popular places on UBC (and by popular, I mean elusive).

Alternatively, you can just type “wayfinding” and “[the building/location]” into Google to bring up a map of UBC with an arrow pointing to your destination. Easy.

Off to the training session now!
