So I finally get all my stupid transcripts/tuition/etcetera crap sorted out, and now there is new Insurance Crap. At least I can pay my rent - borrowed it from Mum, obviously. But for some reason my insurance went up $240 when I moved and that was *not* on the policy they printed out and handed me when I went in to change it. Furthermore I've called three or four other insurance companies and they're giving me numbers *lower* than was my premium on the last policy. So understandably, I am pissed. Am trying to get ahold of Mum so that she can check her Magic Abuse of Government Powers Database and tell me whether these really-much-cheaper people are dodgy or legit. Then I will return to BCAA and shove the new numbers in their evil faces/threaten to move, politely. (Which will be somewhat less of a threat than an actual plan, 'cause $575? Is too much.)
Um, yes. *emails Mum again*
Pretty Commercial Made by Provincial Government: We're adding 25,000 new post-secondary spaces!
Me: Uh... well, that should *almost* fill the deficit we have currently...
Province: But not all necessarily in places you want to go! In fact, some of them seem to have been created virtually at random!
Me: ...okay, somewhat less useful.
Province: And look how beautiful is British Columbia! *happy glowy inspiring music and sweeping horizon shots*
Me: Well, all right, that I can get behind...
Province: ...so come to school here, World!
Me: Wait... wait...
Province: 'Cause we're making all these new spaces! For you!
Me: No! No! Don't tell *them*! That's not enough spaces for the people that are already here!
Province: And pay another thirty percent more in tuition because we're trying to turn this into a cash cow! Tra la la, we are evil capitalist fuckwits!
Me: *shaking fist* One more year, bastards...
EDIT: These new Tim Horton's commercials with the tea are both ridiculous and disturbing. The lady scares me and hey, guys? Steeping tea? Revolutionary. Good call. *eyeroll*
