"As a Waterloo co-op student you never get a break. You are either moving into school, at school, moving into co-op, or working and after 4 years you are exhausted, and are ready to be done."

For the first couple of years I coped by studying as little as possible during exam week. Like, seriously, my brain would have melted, if I hadn't. If I wasn't writing an exam, I'd play board games, watch Star Trek reruns on TV, sleep whenever I felt tired and be awake whenever I felt awake, treat myself to my favourite foods. And I still managed to be vomiting into the toilet the morning of every day I had an exam to write because of the stress.

"We’re still behaving like the rebel alliance, but now we’re the Empire. We got where we are by ignoring outsiders and believing in ourselves even when nobody else would.
