I had this feeling that everyone in Ontario was really overreacting about this crazy storm that was coming but they were not. It’s fucking crazy and it is definitely here. I managed to get a ride home from a friend tonight, which was awesome. I made friends at the right time lol. The 5 minutes we were waiting outside for her partner to get there were horrible. Even with a hood and an umbrella I was soaked. All my windows are shaking and rattling in their tracks, my Internet keeps cutting out and the power keeps flickering. It’s going to be a tough night to get any work done. I have a feeling I’m going to end up working by candlelight.
My class tonight was a serious downer. Monday night is AOP night and tonight was really awful. Like, holding back tears in my seat awful. We had to watch a movie and next week we have to hand in an essay on said movie. The professor didn’t even stay in the hall to watch it with us. Has anyone else had to watch Rabbit-Proof Fence? It’s all the things we’ve been talking about, but to actually watch it be acted out is so different than talking about it. No one came to class because of the storm so there were 10 of us where there would normally be at least 150 and everyone was a little emotional at the end. No one knew what to do or say. The prof came in and asked if we wanted to have a discussion and everyone was completely shut down. I have so much work to get down right now and I’m so emotionally caught up in what I just watched that I don’t think I can do it. I guess now is a good time to work on compartmentalizing.
