Rules You Pick Up At University...

Found this one and added some...These are the sort of things to which you said "yeah, right" to before you actually got to university...

Quarters are like gold.
Be creative in the dining hall.
Flipflops become as important as soap, shampoo, etc.
You will never find so many excuses for a bucket.
Asleep by 2:30 am is an early night.
New additions to the food groups: Colt 45/ Billy Bob's Pizza and Scots Skins
Make sure your alarm clock has back-up batteries.
Duct tape heals all wounds. (If not, scotch or masking tape will suffice for a while.)
Showers...2, 3, 6 times a day...well for some...
Sleep...what the hell is that?
Two meals a day are standard. One for some!
In an imaginary world, holding hands is the first sign of true love, in college it means someone is too drunk to stand on their own.
Recycling becomes synonomous with laundry ("Oh, my jeans can last until Christmas...there's only a *little* bit of puke on them...")
10 minutes is more than enough time to get ready for your first class (not that this is anything really new).
Going to the mailbox was never an ego booster/breaker before.
It takes more than one person to carry your laundry, books, trash, alcohol...
You begin to nap again (also not new).
Isn't it amazing that the book your professor wrote is always required for his class?
Labs used to be fun.
Squirt guns=stress relief.
E-mail/ Facebook becomes your second language.
Ten-page papers used to sound impossible, now they're a Godsend.
You never realized so many people are fucking smarter than you.
You never realized so many people are fucking dumber than you.
Professors are like celebrities: you see them, but they never see you.
Western Europe could be wiped out by a horrible plague and you'd never know, but you could recite Scarface ad verbatim.
See every movie under $3 that your campus provides; it's actually proportional to the amount of money you have.
Roadtrip whenever possible.
Bum rides, money, notes and snacks as much as you can get them.
Don't burn bridges, especially if he's good in Biology.
Beer cans make awesome christmas tree decorations.
Plain pasta never constituted a complete meal before.
The health service attendants are there because they couldn't make it in a real hospital, never ever forget that.
Forget putting the toilet seat down,you just pray that they flush.
Frisbee becomes a contact sport, best played in your hallway at 2 am.
Care packages rank up there with birthdays.
College chicks are the same as high school girls, just with more freedom...and no curfew.
It never sucked so much to get sick.
Cold pizza...beer... and breakfast is covered.
Learn to love your roommate, especially when he leaves you the room.
You always thought that worshipping the porcelain god was just an expression...it's not!
You'll learn more about male genetalia than you ever thought necessary, guys talk more about that than women and sex put together.
Beware the freshman 15, or in some cases, the freshman cup size.
Even though the beds are long, they are also extra narrow.
You never thought you would share so much about yourself with people you have known for such a short time.
Computer games go in and out faster than the latest fashions.
Any game can be made into a drinking game.
Slasher movies are more than just classics.
Find one thing you like in the dining hall and go with it.
You will hear more stupid nicknames than you ever thought possible.
Phone calls almost never happen and when they do, you just don't get the messages.
Cereal makes a meal any time of day.
Keep your high school term papers; nowadays, everything is recycled.
You almost forget how to drive.
You'll drink anything if it's free..
People still cheat, it's just more technologically advanced.
You get really good with excuses for skipping class.
The girl you're going to marry may live right next door, so keep your stereo down.
Ordering food at 1 am is a common occurance.
You never realized how cool you can be.
TV becomes a bigger time sucker than ever before.
You realize how great your hell summer job was once you get to work study.
Keys have never been so important, yet you seem to lose them more than ever before.
You learn to sleep with light, noise, extreme temps, and roommates snoring.
You become a juggler with the balance between school, friends, girls, activities, work, parties... People that were geeks in high school seem okay now....ummm...maybe not
You begin to realize that college is about the ideal lifestyle, except for those pesky classes.
You get good at rationalizing on whether to do homework or not (usually not).
Procrastination becomes an art.
Jeans may be worn as many times as the wearer desires (for example, see \# 12).
The only reason you ever dress up is when everything else is dirty.
With all the wealth of knowledge around you, you start to feel like you're on intellectual welfare. Amount of alcohol consumed is directly proportional to grade point average.
Classes: the later the better.
The cute girls actually talk to you now.

Vacuuming happens every semester, if you get around to it.
Boys will dance in college.
You are NEVER alone.

It's amazing how late you can stay up doing absolutely nothing, yet falling asleep in class or in the library takes an average of two seconds.
You spend a ridiculous amount of time pondering the mystery of whether the cafeteria Lucky Charms are the real thing.
You begin to subdivide your room into sections such as den, library, etc. to make it sound like a house.
All you have to do to make new friends is have mom send up some cookies.
Dishes aren't dirty enough to wash until they have bugs and/or mold in them.
Printers only break down when you desperately need them.
You get along so much better with your family now that you never see any of them.

FRIDAY THE 13th- February 2009!!!

Well now...what do i know about the Friday The 13th remake? Well shooting starts in February of 2008 and the film is going to be released in February 2009 and it is a joint production between New Line Cinema/ Paramount Pictures and MTV Films. According to sources, the film will have Jason Voorhees and Jason will have his hockey mask and the movie is basically a remake/ re-imagining of Parts II, III and IV. The film starts off with four teenagers finding the ruins of Camp Crystal Lake and knowing full well of the legend of Jason and his demented mother Pamela, eventually the foursome find a run-down cabin that has the name "Jason" carved into the walls and a certain famous decapitated head. The film will also explain how Jason can be in so many places at one time via tunnels that are underground and underneith Crystal Lake...the flick sounds promising but there are so so many questions...who will be Jason Voorhees? Kane Hodder? Tyler Mane who is fresh off portraying Micheal Myers? Andrew Bryneski who is a vetern of two Leatherface films? Or maybe someone fresh...look for this flick to gain major attention in the coming months...

International Robert Reid Hawley Day....Or Something Like That

"Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up." ~Thomas Edison

Hello People...

What is new? Well i have not blogged in a hell of a long time! Why? Busy boy i have been seeing what is a happening out in the world, been working alot and our three month probation at work is coming to an end on December 10th..what do i think? Well work has its ups and it has its downs. I like most of the people, i never thought i would ever spend so much time at the Greenwood Mall in my life, well not by choice anyways. A job is a job is a job, better than being jobless at this point in the game, but yet Old Man Robb yearns for more. I did consider a move back to night shifts, why? Well days are a bit of a pressure cooker and nights seemed so much more relaxed to me. Had a decent day today, i wish i had more days like them.

On November 6, 2007 the court-appointed receivers announced that Nagoya based G-Communication would sponsor Nova, operating just 30 branches....

Interesting news, lots of unemployed still there..as a matter of fact Old Man Robb was contacted by Canada AM...yes you read that right...CANADA F'N AM on CTV to chat about his times, trials and tribulations with NOVA...i went to someone for advice and they think i do not need this kind of publicity, what happened in Japan with me should stay in the past, stay gone and not be drudged out again, the media likes to manipulate things, people, make people hear what they want to ehar, do you want sensationalism? Well the media can do that, cut an interview here, put words in here, make stuff up etc etc...places you work can do that too...like how there was a rumor floating around NOVA circles that i was fired for having an affair with a female Japanese students, i mean how frickin low can you go? Cowardace is what i think that is, why help someone? Just make shit up just to look good...what goes around comes around and karma usually has a way of making shit blow up in peoples faces. I believe karma is what happened to NOVA, you scratch my back i scratch yours? No no not there...my old friend Craig pointed out to me an article in the Daily Bugle, i mean News about a girl who went from Nova Scotia to NOVA and she was NEVER paid and friends were getting eviction notices slid under their doorway. No no you want to go to Japan? Well give companies the benifit of the doubt, maybe G-Communication can turn crap around, but then again i heard horror stories about them too....
Well the big ol honkin strike at Acadia is over and the kiddies are back to class...What does Old Man Robb think? I still think Gobblygooker has got to go hit the bricks, by paying professors salaries on par with their counterparts in the US it means as i read that Acadia can lure top teachers and use that as a selling point to attract students who will bring in those dollars AKA tuition. However as the article read further, enrollment is down some 10-15%, it makes sense doesn't it folks? Higher tution to cover the costs of paying the professors, however higher tuition usually equals less students, leading to more turmoil and suspicion down the road which leads to...volia! Another strike! Acadia cannot afford another strike ...not now and not in the forseeable future. The faculty at Acadia lost ONE MILLION dollars during the 3 week strike period! Jeesh! I agree...give it back to the students, i think Acadia owes them one this time....
Well what about Old Man Robb and next year? Well i think good ol Fort Kent, or Fort Knox as Momma Hawley keeps calling them is out of the running, i chatted extensively with represenatives from Fort Kent and i was seriously leaning towards them, as far as to sign a letter of intent to go with them, even though i would have had to write a PRAXIS examination to get in there (Who the hell does that nowadays?) And what killed FK for me was the cost of going there...$21,000...WTF??!?!?!?! Chatted to Acadia about going and taking my education degree there over the course of 2 yrs...$17,000...all of a sudden a friend tipped me off about St Thomas University in Fredericton...STU...$11,000 and that is for classes and for accomodations which is actually something called Windsor Street Properties that is a senior residence for senior students like myself and the program also puts teachers out in the field in like November and in March and it just seemed appealing to me as of this moment. STU? Another trip to NB for schooling? And can Old Man Robb break the Acadia curse? What is that? Well it seems like the only place where Old Man Robb excels at academics, well i did have a vey good second term at Mount Allison back in the winter of 2003-04, but Senior Darth Vader put those dreams out to pasture didnt he...hack... and Kingstec? Well Madame Baskerviles who would not know talent if it fell out of her ass made sure that Old Man Robb didn't catch the airwaves, but i still wanted the Airwaves and i proved her wrong and i proved Darth Vader wrong, i tell you karma is showing up alot in Old Man Robb land alot lately, others seem to be wrong about my abilities and it is my duty to make them see their errors in their ways, remember when the Captain said i would only last half a year at Acadia waaaaaaaaaaaay back in 1998-99? He was wrong (wont admit it...) Maybe i McGinley-ed these things i touch sometimes...make them jump the shark if you will... NOVA? Gone...Baskervilles? Gone... Anakin Vader? Who? No matter...GONE!!!! Hope STU has a radio station.... third time is usually the charm and i am ready to ASSUME The POSITION again! Took Momma out for supper for her bday the other night at the Kingston Diner (Nuthin finer than eating at the diner!) and gave her a $50 gift certificate for Sears so that made her happy. Yes i was moved by MarkMessier's speech the other night at the HHOF Dinner...one of Dad's favorite players ever and a role model to young Robb...met him and Glen Anderson at Sportscheck on Edmonton when we were kids, Mess had hair then, but was a cool guy...We Will Win he promised and actually delivered on the promise...remember when Eric Lindros tried that and lost? Eric yes you had size, you could scrap..but Hall of Fame? No Eric No...you turned your nose up at the Nordiques (No-Dicks as Dick Irvin seemed to say) and you couldn't stand alone...Carl had to do everything..wha wha whaaaaaaaaaaaa... You were not the leader, nor did your teams win and most of them seemed damn happy when you left...coincidence isn't it? And to this fan...you couldn't carry Mark Messier's jock strap, let alone his skates...
Well how' about me and my pocket sized pal? Well we went to see the Hockey Axemen lose to Moncton Blue Eagles 5-2 on Saturday night, well it was something as i must admit there was lots of empty seats in the ol arena on SAt night...now now now Old Man Robb you have heard the excuses that the weather made this happen...did it? I think fairweather fans made it happen...trust me, it is a rebuilding year and only the faithful have been out to the games, jump on the old bandwagon if the team becomes successful again say next year when the rookies have matured and is heading back up the standings again, but stay away when times are tough, i say live with your team, die with your team. I walked into Needs last Sat morning to get some milk and a paper and some moron spots my Yankees hat and babbles, "Should get a Red Sox hat buddy" and makes a gesture...i look at him and clinch my teeth and say, "NEVER" in a most hateful way possible, it is called loyality folks and that seems to be something forgotten about alot in this day and ago. In addition we also hit the VIL before the game and had a Keiths and she a double rum and Coke and we roared at this poor lady who was drunk and cut off at the bar, poor woman sitting there with her head on the bar drunk as a skunk and to boot she forgot her frickin purse... i teased my pal that she was trying to steal her purse, of course she found another fan at the game that she found annoying with his horn...blowing the darn thing some zillion times and that was during the first period alone! LOL!!! Me and my pal also watched some movies the night before, she was finally introduced to the greatness that is SLAPSHOT, the should have been Oscar winner of 1977, i mean if your Canadian, then you like this movie...i mean come on...the very essance of being a man is liking SLAPSHOT. The Hansons still play the greatest shift in hockey history, or at least movie hockey history and Paul Newman's fashion sense is a sight to behold! And those opposing players! Tim "Dr. Hook" McCracken, Andre "Poodle" Lucier, "Ogie" Oglethorpe, Ross "Mad Dog" Madison and Clarence "Screaming Buffalo" Swamptown!!!! Sure awesomeness!!!! and we watched my ECW DVD and i think she thinks wrestling is real as she insulted lots of the wrestlers who were on the screen... cheers for the good guys...ick... never Old Man Robb, the bad guys were always the ones with the most personality to me, i mean back when i was small and watching the days of Grand Prix Wrestling...Killer Karl Krupp, Frenchy Martin and No Class Bobby Bass were the greats cause they had the gift of gab, something lots of today's wrestlers in todays steriod enhanced wrestling scene do not seem to possess in great abundance. Went to Bad News Blairs the other night and yes folks he did drink all of my Keiths...suprise!!! We sat down and sipped on a few pops and watched the original (and best) Texas Chainsaw Massacre from 1974...and yes i do think Franklin was the most annoying character ever to grace a movie screen and yes i was very happy to see his demise at the hands of Leatherface. A year ago on this date i was pretty upset, i remember why...im glad that hurt is long gone and far away, i am glad to be around someone who likes me for me, im not somebody's something to do/ kill time with till something else comes along....makes me happy to be appreciated. Well it is getting late folks and yes the Habs keep winning, the Axemen won a game (In OT over SMU 4-3) and it is almost the weekend, working for the weekend one more day and then two days of rest...have a good one!
