because there was no one here. monday is president's day, so it's a three day weekend, and a lot of people went home. everyone else was out at the frats partying.

by 12:45, i didn't even have a page and a half of sign-ins.


sloooooooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwww...

I don't think there are any private universities in Canada

And on stat holidays most schools and government offices are usually closed

canada is wierd.

or maybe it's the US that's wierd.

or perhaps.....they're both wierd.

or neither?

private schools don't have off for any holidays, unless they're affiliated with some religion...a bunch of my friends went to catholic school for elementary school, and they had half days on good friday and other things, they wouldn't have any classes but they'd have to go to church in the morning, and then they'd get to go home. but they wouldn't get state holidays off all the time. it used to piss me off when we'd get snow, their school would cancel before my school would because they didn't have to rely on the state aid, and stay open for exactly 180 days per school year, or whatever it was.

Now that I think about it most offices are closed here on stat holidays. It's only stores that are normally open.

I think...

banks are closed on state holidays here. and the post office. but everything else seems to be open.

unfortuantly the buses run on a shortened schedule, and don't run as frequently. because no one has any reason to go out on a holiday

We would always have 7 classes AND the "litergy" compressed into those half-days; the teachers would just be like, "So the point of this 17-minute class is...nothing. Let's talk about stuff instead!"

However my school was always the LAST to cancel; every other school in RI would be closed, the weathermen would speak of instant death by merely backing your car out of the driveway, and we would maybe get a 1-hour delay...in which we'd have 7 classes shortened to 27 minutes and the teachers would think that was plenty of time to cram in a quiz to punish the people that showed up to make them work.

/epicly long post
