Letters I Might Write Home From University, Were I Not Still Living At Home

Dear Family,

On Wednesday I had two midterms. One at eight-thirty in the morning, and the other at six o’clock in the evening. It was awesome! I wish I could have days like that all the time! I’m getting there though – I have another midterm on Tuesday, and I don’t even have a textbook to study from! I get to hope that my notetaking abilities are above par and rely on them completely to give me the knowledge I need to pass this test! And the professor for that course is one of the hardest markers in the department, so I should have a rip-roaring time on that test!

And today, in my organic chemistry lecture, the professor called me a moron! My wish come true – he noticed me! Albeit, inadvertently. He was facing the other direction nobody over there had their hand up, and he said, “So, nobody wants to admit to being the moron who doesn’t understand this?”

And then he turned around. “So you’re the moron?” he said. I just shrugged and asked my question. Learning is fun! Especially when you’re being taught by people who sound like Stuart McLean, the guy who does the Vinyl Cafe on CBC radio. Especially especially when they inadvertently call you a moron!

University is going great!


p.s. Al Gore won the Nobel Peace Prize! That’s awesome!
