  Living vicariously through creativityPDF files may take a moment to load

As I enter the kinesiology complex on my way to class each day, I am mystically transported back in time to 1988.

I feel excitement in the chilly winter air and become a part of it, and sometimes find myself smiling at the thought, totally lost in the illusion and oblivious to reality.

Am I crazy?

Am I lying?

As silly as I know it must sound, it's true, and I love it.

Like finding an extra $20 in a pair of blue jeans, the Students' Union found they have more money in their 1999/2000 forecasted surplus than initially predicted. The amount, totaling $250,000, is well above the $20,000 forecasted in the last budget. Student leaders say the windfall comes from many changes that took place over last year.

  Canadian election-calling process stinksPDF files may take a moment to load

Canadian politics sure are wacky.

Get a load of this delicious factoid: the Prime Minister can call an election any time he or she wishes during their term, to a maximum of five years after they are elected. That's right, Billy. The Prime Minister of Canada can call an election two weeks into his/her term, or, if they so wish, make the public wait an excruciating five years.
