    Yet another week comes to a close.

    I find myself wishing more and more that I was living on campus.

    Not only does the commute to school take just under two hours, but I have also been finding it quite difficult to meet new people. I am positive that if I lived on campus, I would find it much easier to make new friends. So all you people living in residence, consider yourselves lucky!

    So now I constantly get to hear about all the new people my friends are meeting at their respective schools, and quite honestly it just makes me feel more bummed out about my initial experiences at UBC. Of course I am sincerely happy that everyone is making new friends, but I can't help feeling a little regretful about my own lack of involvement in social activities thus far into the school year.

    Now that is not to say that I haven’t met anybody.
    I have made friends with a few very nice people, including a guy named Alex in my Latin class, and two girls from my religion class named Katherine and Alena. I also know a few people from my orientation group, which is nice. The only problem is that they all live in residence, so it will be hard to find time to hang out with them, should that opportunity arise.

    God I wish I was 19.
    There are bi-weekly beer gardens at the school and The Pit (UBC’s famous pub) seems to be the most popular hangout on any given Wednesday night (cheap beer night). What makes it even more painful is that I don’t have classes on Thursday, so having a killer hangover really would not matter at all.

    Oh woe is me. I'm sure no one wants to listen to my complaining.
    At least I will be 19 by the time the year-end Arts County Fair rolls around. And that should prove to be the party of the year…at least I hope.

    But yeah, other than that things seem to be going well. I think that I am finally getting used to this whole University life thing. I like the feeling of walking around campus, there is just so much freedom. I especially enjoy all the independence – this is a good thing for me seeing as I usually tend to be overly dependent on my parents.

    And on a lighter note…
    Wuhoo it is finally the weekend! Megan is coming home from U-Vic, and I can’t wait to hang out with her. I’m so excited!

    I am going to go eat something.
    I shall leave you with a random quote:

    “Airless, humid dark. Leaf-noise.
    The stirrings of a garden before rain.
    A hint of a storm behind the risen moon.
    We are what we have chosen. Did I choose to?-”

    Ha now you are confused.
