Last day of Classes

Wow it finally came the last day of classes. It has been a very long and hard 13 weeks but now I am glad to be through it. I am looking forward to my exams over the next few weeks. I just got paid my first pay so now I HAVE MONEY! again (to pay bills 🙁 )

Also I had my second in-car driving lesson, I think that I am getting better at it then last time.

Also today I am going to start in Radio Shack at McAllister Place for my Rogers Wireless job. I am very excited to work with the people there. Future Shop was great in regards to the people, but there was not a steady flow of customers like I think there will be in the mall.

gtg to my last class MATH1853 so post later.

Better Policy Needed to Deal with Bus Congestion

I have a concern I’ve noticed happening more often on buses over the past month or so. This effect is happening on the Hospital / UNB and East / West Routes.

As the buses are approaching capacity there are normally about three to seven seats left in the rear of the bus, however many UNBSJ students will notice only that there are no seats in the front of the bus and will stand half-way between the front and rear doors, causing a backlog of people standing.

I would suggest that the Transit Commission make it policy that all standers must stand in the back of the bus to make it clearer that there are free seats remaining. In addition, I would ask that you contact the University to send out an e-mail to students advising them of this.

Week One

Well this week despite being the first week of classes after taking a year and a half off, was fairly uneventful. The old adage that if you don’t use it you will lose it is true. In the Math class for one it is so far covering a lot of the things from Grade 11 which for me was 5 years ago. Last time around all those years ago Ms. Chapman would explain thing very thoroughly so that even the uninterested would learn. Now I have a professor that despite English not being his first language and be slightly difficult communicate his thoughts, is definitely passionate about the course material, and it is early to tell but I think this passion is for all math in general.

I also finally finished all the graphics for the new upcoming season of Too Close to Call. This season is going to be slightly different from last season, but it is sure to be more interesting. The season premier airs live next Sunday (Sept 19th) at 7-8pm on Rogers Television throughout New Brunswick.

I have also been working over the past week, but there really is nothing new to say.
