You wake up for your 8, 9, or 10am class feelin' half awake and almost dead. If your classes are any later, you shouldn't even be feeling this way.

"Baby I'm howlin' for you"

Seeing a beautiful dude/gal in line at Tim Hortons or Starbucks, being too shy to approach them, and watching them slip away from your fingers. I'll see you again someday, Cody.

"Why you gotta be so rude?"

You hold the door for the person behind you, and they walk right through without any acknowledgement. Or, you're right behind someone and they let the door hit you in the face. Remember to be courteous, we're all part of the Ramily here!

You have back-to-back classes and you're racing against the clock to get from the RCC to TRSM. Or, from Sally Horsfall to any other building if you're that unlucky. Sorry, professor, I'm trying!

You pass by the Eaton Centre on the way to class, and see that adorable outfit on display in the H&M windows... I will have you, once my OSAP check comes. Just kidding, that's not the way to spend your OSAP money! Shame on you!

Getting lower on an assignment than you expected is a buzzkill. But it's okay, you can just shake it off and try harder on the next one.

You think you're having a bad day, until...

They're handing out FREE drinks on the street! The best thing you can offer any broke university student is anything free. Hell to the yeah.

Then you realize it's not such a bad day, after all!

"Fallen leaves, fallen leaves, fallen leaves on the ground"

And then you remember it's fall, and you relish in the autumn air and step on all the crunchy leaves.

"Just don't kill, don't kill the magic"

You're studying in the library. You're in your zone. You're makin' magic happen with your brain. Everything around you is out of focus. Shhh! We're in the quiet zone, keep your mouthes shut!

"Work hard, play hard"

Because at the end of the day, all dat hard work is gonna pay off. Time to celebrate at the Ram!
