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.

For anyone doing neurophysiology…

Parts of the Brain, by Pinky and the Brain! I remember my psychology AP teacher showing this video to our class. The whole week after, all I could hear was “brainstem, brainstem!

For that durn Chemistry exam

Hello, world!

I haven’t been posting as often as I had before because of the huge piles of work.  Humongous piles.  I’m drowning, guys. I’ve been studying for the upcoming Chem 121 midterm.  I’m finding the material pretty tough, but I’m determined to pass this exam with an acceptable grade.

Anyways, I’ve been taking lots of breaks (probably more breaks than necessary). Now my procrastinating has become more productive, and even chemistry related! Here are two chemistry videos I’d like to share with you (oi, don’t give me that look). You know you like it!

My chemistry prof’s favourite:

My personal favourite:

Ways to procrastinate: Find new music!

In the face of neverending midterms, I find myself doing anything to avoid studying.  Bad student? Yes, I am.  Anyways…

Move over iTunes Genius, because I’ve found new ways to find cool music and playlists!  My fall playlist has been updated, and I’m very happy about that.  Here, take a look:

1. Songza

Feeling angsty, but can’t find the right music to cry to? Try Songza, which is a free service which recommends and streams music for you!  It’s actually pretty cool— it has a concierge service which can provide you with a carefully crafted playlist depending on your mood!  I use it for all sorts of activities; room-cleaning, homework-doing, sleep-going, etc.  Songza can also be found in app form for iOS and Android.


My friend showed me this one.  Type an artist’s or band’s name into the search bar, and the website find their top ten tracks for you! Sometimes, they’re even available to stream.  This is great if you’ve just heard of a band and want to hear more!  Now everybody, go listen to Tegan and Sara.

3. YouTube Discovery

It’s basically YouTube and tothebestof.com combined.  Stream music videos from your favourite artists in an automatic playlist! Unfortunately, the service tends to give you live videos, so this isn’t really the greatest for straight-up music listening 😛 But this all about procrastinating, isn’t it?

Take note that you need internet connection for all of these services to work! Or you could always do things the old fashioned way and swap iPods with somebody else 🙂 By the way, this is an attempt to start a blog series! Except the episodes/posts won’t come consistently, because I’m inconsistent like that.

Happy listening!
