Well it’s that time of the year again. Sleep deprived, food deprived, friends deprived… all at the cost for a few grades. The suffering doesn’t last, the grades do. Over the last couple days, I’ve had only 5 hours of sleep. On Saturday night, I stayed in the labs until 6 am and on Sunday night I stayed in the labs until 7 am. I had three major projects due and I finished two of them Sunday afternoon. What a great weekend *cough*

8) BEGAN playing soccer in Winter 2006 and now playing Men’s Competitive 3 … scoring over 10 goals this summer as Midfielder for 1/4 the games, and striker as the� 3/4 of the games. Not bad for my first year!
