    The Random Thoughts Thread

    Not at all with University. I see it all around me with people setting there decorations up after Halloween, advertisements, to my boss singing Christmas Carols in October (Doesn't help that my boss' last name is Holly) I don't get into the Holiday Spirit early. I normally get into the spirit a week before Christmas as that's when I'm done for the semester and that's when I can have a few extra drinks and I can spend time with family without the stress of school. I actually grown to despise Christmas in general. It's all about aggressive marketing and not spending time with family nowadays. I generally avoid the malls and don't buy gifts for anyone except for my parents as I used to give but don't recieve in return. Yeah I know, I sound like the grinch but that's my two cents about Christmas from my opinion.

    General FML moments

    Not sure what went through my mind when I did this. I put my water bottle in my bag without me noticing that I didnt put the cover on. Covering my 700 page textbook in a binder and some notebooks covered in water. It couldve been worse that my laptop could've been my bag, water got inside completely my notes and textbook or I didn't notice till I got home. Only reason I noticed? There's a bottle cap on my desk yet my water bottle is my bag. FML.

    What are you eating right now?

    Pumpkin Muffin from Tim Hortons from my professor for doing a presentation. Not a fan of pumpkin but this is delicious. And a SanPellegrino Pomegranate and Orange to drink.

    General FY Moments

    So my work started giving vacation pay to part-time workers. (I didn't know this was such a thing till I saw a notice where they will be issuing deposits on November 9th.). I ended up getting an extra $150. That felt satisfying when I checked my bank account and noticed that I had more money than the night before. (Thursday was Payday)

    Calgary Transit

    Not sure where to post this but there's a watermain break on 14th Street and Heritage Drive. Closing a turning lane from Heritage to 14th and Completely from Heritage Park to cross 14th Street. No left turns from Heritage to 14th Street. Bus 80 - Oakridge (Only route that turns left from Heritage to 14th) ended up going right on 14th Street, turning around at Glenmore! I thought I mistakenly got on the 20 or 306 when the bus turned!

    Ever get on the wrong bus in your home town?

    It has happened twice for me. The last time it happened though was when I was off work at 10:30PM in Calgary. I got on the Route 3 at Heritage Station that said "Sandstone" which will pass through downtown. Unfortunately the driver forgot to change the destination sign which was Elbow Drive. We ended up going south. I ended up getting off at a random stop where everyone got off. I ended up walking to Southland Station and got home 45 minutes late. This doesn't happen anymore as the 3 doesn't go south and terminates at Heritage before returning to Sandstone. The other time was a night after studying for midterms last year, somehow I got on the Red Line Train and when I realized it, the train was going south rather than north. The announcements weren't running which made me thought I was on the correct train. I got off at the Victoria Park Station and Transferred to City Hall and got on a Blue Line Train to NE Calgary.
