So I don’t know if you guys noticed, but there are giant bean bags all over the main part of the UBCV campus.
I’m looking at you, Main Mall.
They’re literally huge, white, squishy, organ-shaped sacks with “Pop Rocks” printed on them in red ink. They appear to be here for the sole purpose of being stepped, sat, and lounged upon.
seriously UBC, what’s going on.
They’re not even that soft 🙁 Lounge upon them I did, though! With a vengeance.
Friendly warning: contact with the giant bean bags results in noticeable amounts of static. Use this knowledge to your advantage.
Anyways, my point is that I finally have time to goof off on giant bean bags and not feel bad about it. My last exam was biomechanics and I’d like to say that I aced it but who knows.
I’m not worrying about it, because I’ve got four academic-free months of summer! Huffah! 😀
Now to job hunt and clean my room. Yay priorities.
And here’s my new favourite song!
PS. I think I’ve pretty much kept up my end of the Blog Squad contract, so that’s all good and done now. I’m not really sure if I still count as a BlogSquadder or not, but I’m going to continue blogging into the summer (so you can sleep soundly now).
I’m alive and well. I survived my finals!… but barely. My last exam (the final final on the 19th) got cancelled because of the heavy snow (by Vancouver traffic standards). The busses couldn’t get up the hill to campus, and traffic was chaotic, and there were people who had to walk uphill to UBC, and it was just not pretty.
I got lucky and my mum drove me to school. It took us two whole hours to get from North Burnaby to the bus loop of UBC. Thankfully, I was there early and I had time to grab breakfast and meet up with a friend before heading over to the Scarfe building for my exam. When we got there, however, other students in our class notified of the recent announcement that our exam was cancelled. Slightly dejected, my friend and I went on our way home. It was okay because he drove that day and I was able to catch a ride with him. We have to write that exam the first Sunday after school starts.
Apart from that one mishap, though, I suppose the end of my first semester at UBC went pretty smoothly. Hurray for winter break!
September: I’m going to put on makeup and do different hairstyles everyday! I’m going to wear all my prettiest clothes and swear off the hoodies! I am going to be beautiful this year, gosh darn it!
October: Meh. Eh. Midterms are making life hard for me, but that won’t stop me from looking nice! Makeup is reserved for special occasions only. I haven’t gone shopping in a long time. I need rain boots.
November: My morning routine consists of brushing my teeth and nothing else. I’ve forgotten what a comb looks like, and my hair is too long, because I have put off a haircut, and it gets in the way of everything. The toque and rain boots have become my school uniform, and I really hope no one notices that I’ve worn these jeans every day for the past week.
December: I know nothing but pajamas and sweat pants. I have not seen direct sunlight for 36 hours, although I’ve heard stories about it from the people I’m living with. Please, let this term end quickly and painlessly.
