High-five for alliteration. WOO!
In approximately 6 days I will be starting the last first day of school of my undergrad – very likely the last first day of my UBC educational career. “How do you feel about that?” 😐 sighs for days.
I love UBC, and from all my past posts, especially from my first and second year, one can tell that I absolutely love this place. I looked up the hashtag UBC on Instagram and feelings of nostalgia is what I drowned in when I saw the results. First years with pictures of their student cards all excited to start their university careers…and I’m all “take me back”. First year was wonderful, all the hype and excitement, I could bring that all back up again if I wanted to. Starting fourth year on the other hand has a different kind of “excitement” boiling up in me. To be honest, I just feel old. Feelings of “been there, done that” surround me constantly, but no, I still have so much more to experience and I have approximately 8 months to immerse myself in the unknowns I have yet to know. #UBCbucketlist
Now that school starts in less than a week, the campus is starting to buzz again, people actually exist…this is a slow preparation for when classes actually start and you have to maze your way through 100s and 100s of students going in every which way – something I am NOT looking forward to, but that hustle and bustle on Main Mall by the fountain in between each class, that’s one of the things that make UBC what it is, “a place of mind.” Oh, the irony.
Places to avoid for the next three weeks if you don’t want to get trampled on: Bookstore + SUB and its vicinities.
