I survived first year @ UofT! =)

Yes, so now that the last exam is over, I am feeling an incredible sense of relief. First year at UofT has indeed been a very strenous ordeal for me, but I am glad because of the amount of things that I have learned along the way, and not just academically speaking either. It was all about adaptation and survival almost, suddenly being thrown into a place where things were completely different than high school and forced to adapt and change.
Living by myself was very hard to get used to, as was establishing new friendships and relationships with people and dealing with the loss of others. But overall, I feel like I have made an improvement. Despite all the mistakes and failures I have made, retrospectively, I am glad that I have made them, I have to accept the fact that I can’t make everyone happy, and I can’t do my best all the time. I came to UofT expecting that it will help prepare me for life as an adult, and in that sense it has met my expectations admirably.
So now with confidence, I hope summer school and second year will continue to prepare me for life. =).

I’m In Repair

Too many shadows in my room
Too many hours in this midnight
Too many corners in my mind
So much to do to set my heart right
Oh, it’s taking so long I could be wrong,
I could be ready…
Oh, but if i take my heart’s advice
I should assume it’s still unsteady
I am in repair,
I am in repair.

Stood on the corner for a while
To wait for the wind to blow down on me
Hoping it takes with it my old ways
And brings some brand new look upon me
Oh it’s taking so long I could be wrong,
I could be ready…
Oh but if i take my heart’s advice
I should assume it’s still unsteady
I am in repair,
I am in repair.

And now i’m walking in a park
All of the birds they dance below me
Maybe when things turn green again
It will be good to say you know me.

Oh it’s taking so long I could be wrong,
I could be ready…
Oh but if I take my heart’s advice
I should assume it’s still unready
Oh I’m never really ready,
Who’s ever really ready
I’m in repair, I’m not together,
but I’m getting there.
I’m in repair, I’m not together,
but I’m getting there.

Damn Streetcars

I seriously hate streetcars so much. I’ve missed three lectures this week because I missed them by 20 seconds, then have to wait 30 min – an hour for another streetcar to come. Its ridiculous. At nighttime I’ve had to wait up to 90 min for one of them to come. You think I’m glad to pay $2.75 to wait 90 min for a freaking streetcar and then get flattened by 50 other people on it while waiting another 60 min to get to my home? Goddamit. You residence people are so lucky. I wished I lived in chestnut again. And I wish toronto would build more subway lines instead of using streetcars. =(
