Yes I am. Just because I'm on my work term doesn't mean I'm gone — it just means I have less stuff to do. That means more Super Smash Bros — a game so addicting that my new roommates were addicted to it before I got back from Christmas vacation ... more addicting than the 46 2L bottles of Coke we bought last week (for those of you who don't know what Smash Bros is, it is a fighting style game where Nintendo's flagship characters beat the crap out of each other with an assortment of cool moves and weapons.) Anyway, enough about that — let's talk about Scott Bakula ... no, just kidding.
It seems that mathNEWS has caught the 2K2 bug — all those computer crashes that were supposed to happen two years ago have nearly ground us to a halt. Well, at least this way you won't have those gargantuan issues that threatened to cause MC to start sinking like the Dana Porter — but since hot air is being pumped into the MC from somewhere, we've managed to avoid that fate. (Try holding any door in the MC about an inch open to see what I mean about pumped hot air.)
Looking back on it, last term wasn't so bad — I mean I passed Stat 231 after writing a lab report about using a Monkey Hurler 3000 and 50 radioactive monkeys to steal Watcards from students and perform strange math functions with the numbers (see mathNEWS Volume 87, Issue 4). Although I somehow passed that course, I still believe Stat 231 is evil. (I also recommend you take the course — you'll need it to eventually graduate.)
I've decided to try something new this term — take a course during my work term ... I mean, take one more now, take one less later ... why didn't I do this sooner? (I found out after that it's because I still needed to take four terms with five courses in them ...)
Meh. Another winter in Waterloo, another new smell in the Comfy. At least I'm on work term.
