Going to Guelph on Monday. Not this Monday. Nor even the Monday after that. Wait. Yes it is the Monday after that. How am I supposed to remember that? @.@;;

Anyway. I hope Sara will be in some sort of shape to take me around... I've forgotten which dorms I'm not supposed to sign up for. I only remember "DON'T STAY IN THAT ONE! *point to the twisty-building*" I don't even know what THAT one is anymore.

It appears father has not given up on forcing me anywhere but U of T downtown. *sigh* Oh well. I will know people, if I go to Guelph. I just won't be around to pull Sarah and Caelin out of their wacky first-year adventures and pester them to go to class. (As a sidenote: Sarah, you are, under no circumstances, allowed to sell your kidneys on the black market.)

But yes. Guelph. Hopefully mentioning that here will help me remember if I ever go scrolling down my LJ page. Because everyone knows I'm horrid at keeping track of things. Especially lately. *cringes*

Guelph. GuelphGuelphGuelphGuelphGuelph.

...That should do it. *smooshes off to color in more Mana/tape more posters/banners together*

(Pssst... the HydexHyde one from a while ago is very life-size (albeit cut off at the end ~.~;;) and very nice. Because there are two of them. Can't be better. Unless it be in color.)

Guelph? O_o
Stephaniemirroredsakura on May 18th, 2005 12:48 pm (UTC)
Yesh. Why? ^^;;
feneryfenery on May 18th, 2005 03:33 pm (UTC)
cause I've never heard of it -__- *feels stupid* ;p
Stephaniemirroredsakura on May 18th, 2005 06:21 pm (UTC)
*grins* Yes, well. You live in the States. You can be forgiven that. ^-^

One does not expect other people to know all the Universities in other countries. ;p
feneryfenery on May 18th, 2005 06:36 pm (UTC)
*hugs* ^_^
So is it supposed to be a nice university?
Stephaniemirroredsakura on May 18th, 2005 06:49 pm (UTC)
It's certainly a pretty University. ^^;; That's the one reason my little sister wants to go there. ^-^

Good though? Yes. >.>;; My friend just happened to fail. Twice. *is worried about her* Suspension/expulsion from University is not pleasant. *cringes*
you can have my precious bones on my return: dorklirimaer on May 18th, 2005 04:01 pm (UTC)
My sister is at Guelph. She was in a great residence... though I forget the name of it. >.> She was on the fourth floor and had this huuuuuuge room to herself. If I remember, I can ask her the name of it. I think it started with an M? >.>

What are you looking at going into there?
Stephaniemirroredsakura on May 18th, 2005 06:19 pm (UTC)
I've been accepted there for Math, and I'm also trying for BioChem. Which hasn't accepted me (yet...~_~;;). Reasonable, I guess, considering I've only got a Physics mark up in the air, and taking both Biology and Chem now. >.>;;

If I go into Math, I'd rather go to U of T. If BioChem, Guelph seems reasonable.

...All said and done, I'm still the most indecisive person in the world, so I'm still not sure what to do with my life! ^^;;

No going to Guelph!!!!!

I promise i will sell all of my organs if you do! to spite you!!!





OH OH, promise your dad that if you dont do well your first year you can trasfer to guelph!! and then you can be all hard core and do well at UofT with your super ping-pong/piano/ddr/math powers!

Stephaniemirroredsakura on May 18th, 2005 06:15 pm (UTC)
>.>;; You realize that in not-doing well in my first year, I'll ultimately screw up any chance of getting into Guelph second year? Because they won't accept me if I fall below a... 70?

Worth a try though. Parents are still opting for UTM though. And a car.

Don't know why that's a reasonable bribe though. I can't drive. >.>;; And even if I did, there's a very likely chance that I won't get to drive it unless they're in the car, which rather defeats the purpose.

But yes. Downtown. Probably no rez, but I can opt to hide in your dorm once in a while. And keep your organs inside you. o.O;;
sentience1997 on May 18th, 2005 06:32 pm (UTC)
you better!

And for a fransfer you wouldnt need marks so high to guelph..... Grades you get in Uni are not = to highschool grades.... well, maybe at York or something....

Downtown = love, you must stay and gaurd my organs from ninjas (i imagine ninjas would want them since they are master organs and they would gain super strength if they wore/consumed them).

Tell them you shouldnt be driving and that you should live/school in the city instead because of all of the terrible missisauga traffic accidents and like errr violent hit and run deaths (which i assume they have at UTM and not at St. George).

Plus! Point out the lack of G2 (unless youve got one and i didnt notice)--- and then point out how expensive new driver insurance is and fuel and how driving to school every morning will kill the enivironment and let the Americans win!
Stephaniemirroredsakura on May 18th, 2005 06:41 pm (UTC)
*falls over* A... mer... i... cans....?

...Only you, Sarah. Only you. *dead*

Nya. I need to compile some sort of list as to why I should go to UofT. I have conscripted you in the war effort.

We can both be reasonable when we choose... >.>;;

Reasons why Guelph is Lame and UofT (@ St. George) is NOT

1. Guelph has nothing good to major in, seriously

[List All Majors][List All Majors in Co-op Programs]

Oooooh, look, how mighty a major selection you do have...... (to be very 90s for a moment) NOT

And now....

These are just the Arts and Science POS (since i know thats the faculty you applied to):

UofT (in Just Arts/Sci alone) has 201 Programs of Study, not accounting for that many you can take as minors,majors, or spec. and not taking into account Co-op. Guelph, amoung all the faculties, only has 96.

I mean, come on!! 96 POS in the entire university if you go to Guelph, or 201 just within your current faculty at UofT (downtown only---- i'm not even looking at the other campus')

UofT 1; Guelph 0

The UofT list is also just for the regular, anyone can take these, POS--- they don't include any of the "you have to prove your might" majors, like Japanese... Which brings me to point two:

2. Guelph doesn't appear to have Japanese-- no Major [UofT does: they have an amazing selections of courses on Japan, the language, culture, etc. as well as other East Asian philosophies—plus of course being able to major in Asia-pacific studies, East Asian Lang/Lit, and of course Japanese Studies (minor, major, and spec.)] and no, at least easily finable, classes.

Once you get the actual course selecty books and the St. George Course calendar you will see all that is hidden from the web--- and it proves you can basically major in anything at UofT (downtown)

UofT 2; Guelph 0

3. At UofT you will get an honors degree… at Guelph, you will not.

UofT 3; Guelph 0

4. Caelin and I will be there and basically everyone else will be in the immediate area! You will miss out on crazy fun!

A good way of using this to convince the parents is, because quite simply, science has proven again and again that happy people do much better academically- and when people are in friendly, social environments they test substantially better then when they are alone. Frankly, going to the school of your choice with your friends, even though it does have a slightly harder curriculum, will ultimately lead to better grades because your surroundings will be that much better--- also a reason to live on campus!

UofT 4; Guelph 0

5. According to MapQuest, the main, general admissions building at Guelph is 56.61 miles from University College (which is basically the centre of campus and of course where I'll be living --- its like a freakin' castle!). That means that after an uncomfortably long drive on the 401, it'll take 1 hour and 8 minutes to get to you- how lame is that?

UofT 5; Guelph 0

Okay well i think i'm lazying out now... plus, i think ill go over the word count soon so that's all for now--- and you better not be going to guelph!

Stephaniemirroredsakura on May 19th, 2005 12:56 pm (UTC)

Steph has opted for UofT. Dad says I can accept the offer now. ^-^ This is good. This is very good.

...Your list will be publicly viewed by the anyway just to underline the scholarliness. ^^

Am still going to Guelph on the Monday because then I won't have to go to school (right after AN) and so I can sleep in in the car.
sentience1997 on May 19th, 2005 01:03 pm (UTC)

UofT downtown, right????

Ooooh my, that is so awesome!! I do a dance of happiness now for you!!!

No chance of rez though?

But still, weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!! UofT!Steph---- how pleasing!
Stephaniemirroredsakura on May 19th, 2005 01:12 pm (UTC)
No, no chance of rez elsewise I get booted to UTM.

So yes, in that roundabout way o' Steph's, yes UofT downtown. ^-^ I will officially be a commuter.

...Not nearly as good as residence, but hey if I do okay, I'll be outfitted with an apartment downtown in my second year. This bit, I wouldn't mind. ^^
sentience1997 on May 19th, 2005 01:15 pm (UTC)
awesomeness!!! Plus, its more like japan in many ways- because most people commute on the bullet train in every morning to school anyways--- you can like play the psp or read manga and stuff and be in school girl outfits ;p
Stephaniemirroredsakura on May 19th, 2005 01:20 pm (UTC)
*grins* Good point, I need one. ^-^!
sentience1997 on May 19th, 2005 01:14 pm (UTC)
oh and-- so does that mean the monday after AN you will not be getting your student card early with me? Le sigh, i wanted to get my t-card photo done while in costume post AN ;p
Stephaniemirroredsakura on May 19th, 2005 01:22 pm (UTC)
Awwww! I will miss this! :(

You must still get photo taken in costume! I insist!

I will attempt to be costumified also whenever I go, if I can't go with you. We will make one strange pair entering in this large, large school.

I'm sure they've got to be used to it by now... they sure do have a lot of Asian. ^^
sentience1997 on May 19th, 2005 01:27 pm (UTC)
That is sure true--- weee, i'm excited though ;p
Stephaniemirroredsakura on May 19th, 2005 01:33 pm (UTC)
^___^ Meee tooo~

*twirls around* I really must go down with someone other than my parents though... they'll ensure my not-being-able to wear costume. >.>;
sentience1997 on May 19th, 2005 01:33 pm (UTC)
And OT squee! Ashita Genkini Naare *finally* came today!!! It has been back ordered and like lost in the mail forever and i am soooooo happy!!! God i loved this single
Stephaniemirroredsakura on May 19th, 2005 01:40 pm (UTC)
O.O!!! Pretty!!!!!! *now wants to be home so she can watch the PV*

Oresama's coming to you too, isn't it? Now THAT is a lovely movie! *-*
sentience1997 on May 19th, 2005 01:43 pm (UTC)
yes yes it is, though probably not for a few more weeks-- it is pure love ;p

And Miyavism in June too--- im building a nice Miyavi collection
sentience1997 on May 19th, 2005 01:53 pm (UTC)
Oh and, *is pleased* after listenting to Ashita, Genki ni naare a good half dozen times, i can not only make out a good part of the chorus (which i think is a decent achievement in most of his music ;p) but know what it means! errr roughly, i'm probably not 100% but i know what all the words mean and can actually piece it together with sentence structure ;p I am proud
Stephaniemirroredsakura on May 19th, 2005 10:13 pm (UTC)
^___^! Sarah's becoming more and more Japanese with each day that passes! *twirls*
