I hate my University 
Posted on November 20, 2008 at 12:36 PM.
I currently go to the Schulich School of Business @ York University. York is n strike, because the TA's and some other people want more money. While I could get into the details of why their wage demands are completely idiotic in the current state of the economy, I won't.

The strike started on November 6th, and using past precedent, won't end until probably the New Year. As such, I have taken a small vacation from doing work.

Schulich has a large base of exchange students, that no other part of the university does (for reasons beyond my knowledge, Schulich has a very good reputation). Due to this, I received an e-mail yesterday, stating that although the school was on strike, classes that include exchange students will resume ASAP. This covered 3/4 of my courses.

So last night, I went into complete work beast mode, staying up until 5 AM with a brutal head cold to get stuff done. I wake up with only five hours of sleep, and see an e-mail that says "Sorry for our error, Schulich classes will start up for exchange students only. The rest of Schulich will resume classes with York University."

To quote my favourite ESPN graphic: aaaaaaaaaaaaaag
