Gather round children, and I shall tell you a tale! A tale of adventure, suspense, and... education?
That's right folks! On this very day, I woke up at 6am to go to Toronto with my parents and get a tour of the fabulous York University
! (they work there) Yay! An uber-nice girl by the name of Erika gave me the grand tour! I don't know her personally, but she adopted our grey&white kitten. Anyway, she took me all over Campus, we first went to the Arts building*, where they have all the drawing, painting, sculpting, print-making, dance, and theatre courses. After that we went over to the Psychology building*, where I got a copy of the Undergraduate Supplemental Calander, and a copy of the Psychology Lecture Schedule for fall/winter of 2004 (not that it'll really help me much now, but it's nice to have a copy). After that, we went to Erika's dorm room, because she wanted to check out a listing of lectures that were doing on today, so we could sit in on them and I could get an idea of what an University lecture would be like. We got a couple lectures that were happening that day that we decided we gere gonna go check out. So we went back to the Psychology building*, because that's where one of the Lectures was. We went back in, and had to go to Lecture Hall I, and we went in and sat on the stairs about halfway up. The teacher was talking all about Pavlov's Dog, and the whole Uncontrolled/Controlled Response and Stimulus, which we had talked about yesterday in class (freaky, eh?) so I knew everything she was talking about. After that lecture was over we were gonna go to another lecture, but we couldn't do that right away, cause Erika had to go and tutor for like, an hour or something, so I went back to the kitchen in Winter's Residence where my parents were, and from there we went to York Lanes to eat lunch. We went to this awesome Japanese restaurant there called Sakura
. My parents eat lunch there almost everyday, so the cooks know them really well. My parents introduced me to the cooks, and they were so nice! They gave me free Spring Rolls! :D I had Chicken Teriyaki, and I bought a box of "Choco Boy" candy. They were so yummy, they were biscuits with chocolate on them, but the chocolate part looked like a mushroom! Hee! (that explaination sucked, so here's a quick sketch of them! I drew it in paint so it's really bad.)
Yes. They kinda look like that. Very yummy, go and buy some! Right now! :D So, after lunch I met up with Erika in the kitchen about 20min. later, and we went to check out the History building*, where the next lecture was. We walked around there for a bit, I picked up another Undergraduate Supplemental Calander, and since the lecture wasn't for another half hour, we walked over to York Lanes to get some coffee and stuff. Then we walked back to the History building*, and after about 15min. the lecture was gonna start, so we went in the class and sat at the back where we wouldn't be noticed. The teacher started talking about homework that was from the previous day, and then he started reading equations! We were like, what the hell? This is a math class! So we left, and it turned out that the schedule for that time had gotten messed up, so we didn't end up sitting in on a History lecture. *sigh* The next lecture we planned on going to wasn't for a while, so Erika took me to the building of Kinesiology and Health Science*, where, yes, I picked up another USC, and we walked around there for a bit, and checked out an animal anatomy (I think) class, where they were dissecting cats! Erika tld me that it made her sad, because all the cats' looked like they were in pain. Aww. So we left that building and went back to the Arts building*, where the last lecture was, it was an Arts and Culture lecture, and there were these two guest speakers in that day from Indonesia, and they put on a Shadow Puppet Play! Lucky us! When the play was over, it was about 3:45, so we went back to the Winter's Residence kitchen, where my mom was talking to Don Greg. (he's the Don of the building... his name isn't actually "Don Greg", haha) We all talked for about 10min., then we (my parents and I) had to leave. So I got all my books, said goodbye to Erika and Greg, then we went home. Exciting, yes? Although now my fingers kibnda hurt from typing all that up. *sigh*
* All of these building have names, I just can't remember what they are. >__>
