I work part time at mcds. I'm entering into grade 12 this september, and while I don't mind working at mcds I know it's incredibly exhausting when you come back from a closing shift.
I plan to still work there, but I'm wondering if it's a good idea to work during the week in grade 12. I know the workload will be tough still, and it's a critical time for your marks, so maybe I should take it easy? ...
(at the same time, I want some spending money LOL)
What do you guys think? Do any of you have experience working part time and being a grade 12 student as well?
I'm also planning to go into kinesiology, hopefully at mcmaster, york, or guelph. This year I also have 2 spares! :) (super happy about that. I took gr11 physics in night school and taking gr12 eng in e learning summer right now) I'm also aiming for a high 80, low 90 average this year.
OKAY GUYS, B4 I RANT ABOUT MY LOVE LIFE, DON'T COMMENT IF YOU'RE SOME ANAL A$$HOLE WHO'S GOING TO BE LIKE "Delete this post, this is a uni forum, blah blah blah" OKAY LIKE STFU THERE'S A "Dating" SECTION FOR A REASON.
**I found this all out today from his friends, he didn't tell me anything
My ex wants me back after recently ended it with two "rebounds." We broke up almost a year ago but stayed as "friends with feelings for each other."
About 5 months after breaking up, he met someone, tried to move on from me and went for her. Before anything serious happened, he asked me one more time to get back together, I refused saying we needed to fix things. He agreed to, but things flopped and so he dealed with her, they didn't work out so he "dated/dealed" with her friend who liked him. He ended things, saying that he "never truly liked her" and well, sort of juggled the two rebounds back and forth for the past month. He finally deciding that he made a huge mistake and wants me back. From my knowledge, they both don't know that he still has feelings for me.
For the past several months, I've been distraught by the fact that he would move on so quickly and forget all that we've had! I couldn't believe that he would move on like that and cut me off completely. Tbh it made me very happy finding out that I've been in the back of his mind the whole time :))))))))) (fck those girls)
He's an amazing guy, any girl would be lucky to have him... But I'm not sure if I should take him back, all I know is that I don't want to lose him again.
So, random strangers of yconic, what should I do? Should I talk this out with him and see if he can change and I can move on, then get back together or stay close friends? Or cut him out of my life and move on?
I've been commonly told that high school from grade 9 and 10 is irrelevant and easy; however, grade 11 is supposedly the hardest from high school. In my school, it's called "The Year of Tears" in my school. Is there any tips, experiences that any of you guys are willing to share?
Hello prospective AFMers. I am an undergrad in AFM and I am here to answer any questions you may have regarding to AFM, SAF, Coop, CPA, or anything about Waterloo that is SAF related!
UPDATE: Hi everyone, I am back. I had to avoid you guys so I don't get bombarded with questions like, "Do you think I can get in". Congrats on all the acceptances! Let me know if you need help for anything!
I am trying to convince my parents to let me live on residence for University instead of commuting. I know the pro's that affect me but I want to be realistic and acknowledge the con's that my over protective parents will only see. Also knowing more pro's that I haven't acknowledged myself is good to add. Consider anything and everything that would be a pro or con for you personally because it just might resonate with me. Thanks in advance.
Hello! I know there is a link for students to get free Microsoft Office, however, when I entered my yorku email it says that it cannot sign me up. But when I tried it without the "my" in "my.yorku.ca", it worked (my.yorku.ca is the new email for undergrads this year). Of course I cannot get the link :c I'm a first year student, so I don't have the old email account.
Hi everybody, I wanted to know if it is possible for an international student to study medicine (undergraduate program) in Canada or the USA. The thing is that in both countries I would only have a student visa. Plus, any information related to this will be very useful. Thank you all very much
If you are a commuter student, or use your car to get to school like me, here are some things you should keep in your car. You don't know when emergencies will come, so it's best if you're prepared for it.
- Car charger for your phone. Those things that turn your Cigarette Lighter into a USB port. Most cars have USB ports now so you might not need it but a few of them don't have the proper ability to charge phones. i.e. 2012 Honda Civic (what I drive). It does charge, but it's VERY slow at doing it
- Spare Tire, + Tire change kit. Seriously, keep these in your car. And don't tell me getting rid of these help with mileage. Unless your car is made out of tin foil, removing these won't help with mileage.
- Battery Booster / Jump Starter Kit. Some cars come with it. If it doesn't, you should have it in your car. Cars don't have a battery gauge like phones and laptops. That light only turns on when the battery is dead.
- Ice Scraper / Snow Brush. A must have in the winter. Wipers can't clear off snow from your windshield, and the window heaters at the back won't melt the snow.
- Collapsible Shovel. If it snows a lot where you are, you'll need this too as well as the ice scraper / snow brush. I've actually had to dig my car out of the snow once.
- Flare. Most cars have this already, so keep it in there. Helps other people spot you if you're ever stranded on the highway or somewhere dark. TIP: If you're on the highway, light it and place it a few hundred meters behind where your car is stopped so people know that you're stopped ahead.
- Flashlight. You may have to park your car somewhere and start walking in the dark. Also useful for looking at things under your car.
- First Aid Kit. For patching yourself up or someone else.
- Rescue Medicine. Inhalers, Epipen, etc.
- Pads, Tampons. If you're female that is... you know..... for the female problems.....
- Bottled Water. Don't just keep 1, keep a few. I usually keep 4 because of how many I usually seat in my car.
- Granola Bars, Chips, Snacks, Cookies. Yes, there may be a day when you forget lunch at home and don't have enough money to buy something from the cafeteria or convenience store.
- Poncho / Rain Coat / Umbrella.
- Extra Pair of Clothes.
And as always, keep your car up to date with maintenance. Change oils, fluids, rotate tires, etc. regularly, not only when that check engine light comes on. Usually, when it comes on, it means you're past due for maintenance and something is broken inside.
I'm in grade 11 and going into grade 12, as of now my marks have not been the best and I'm going to be starting to work efficiently and more productively. I've had bad study habits and have been procrastinating on work throughout grades 9-11 and thats reflected in my marks.
My grade 11 marks:
48% Functions <------ Still don't know what will happen since my district is in strike mode
So clearly my marks aren't good and I know that i've been screwing up somewhere and i've realized that it's within my study habits. I just waste time browsing or watching videos that I start my work late and hence don't do well and don't get enough sleep. In the end im left without energy since i'm sleep deprived and can't adhere to the class lessons and knowledge being taught by my teachers. I think the studying environment maybe bad for me since i'm at home and surrounded by family, i think it would be better if I spent my time outside at say the Library working and studying to understand what I'm learning.
I know that i'm a determined student, if I put my heart to it and considering the Grade 12 is the year that counts and is most important in my case - I will be working and giving my 100% at all times.
I know that becoming an Ophthalmologist is not something that happens fast and takes time so I'm willing to dedicate myself to it now since i haven't dedicated myself to anything yet. I know that in the end it'll pay off and I'll be able to look back and see what I've achieved and come past.
As a person, i'm very caring and like to work with people and learn more about them and try to help everyone that I can. I've always been like that and I think becoming some sort of Physician would be one of the best choice for me.
So yeah i'm just putting this question out there, do you think I can pull this off or would i be better off going into the Finance industry?
Ask me anything. This is just a random post with the objective of seeing whether anyone will ask questions to someone who has no desirable knowledge to give out ( yconic user ). I am not a surgeon, nor a U of W engineering student, nor a highly successful business professional. I am what I am at face value, that being a yconic user. ASK AWAY!!!
