So long, and thanks for all the fish

I’m nobody! Who are you? Are you nobody, too? Then there’s a pair of us–don’t tell! They’d banish us, you know. How dreary to be somebody! How public, like a frog To tell your name the livelong day To an admiring bog! -Emily Dickinson Good luck UTM, and so long. Disconnected. Advertisements

Elections Hell 2011

This cannot be it. This year has sped by us with far too much vigor and speed! Vickita’s reign over UTMSU has come to a close, and all we can say is “that’s it?” In the end, not much can be expected of one team of students with so little time and only long-term goals, … Continue reading

So You Want to Be a Frosh Leader?

Frosh leaders are probably the most amazing, epic, and helpful people you will ever meet at your university. To be a frosh leader takes as much lazing around as it takes good humour. Frosh leaders come in all sorts of types, despite what you may think. I like to categorize them as such: 1. The … Continue reading

“You can’t vote”

Disclaimer: The following represents the views of part-time students not associated with TD. While some in our group may argue for their points, not all our opinions are shared. We added in the red text to comments, for our amusement. Disconnect, I just want to start off by saying that I’m severely disappointed with both … Continue reading

United for Winning

Dear U of T students, It’s that time of year again and you’re feeling exhausted, expendable and exasperated. Already our friends at The Medium are up to their necks in election controversy and drama. I suppose even for us, at TD, it’s time to suit up in our sweats and campus-pride sweaters to blend into … Continue reading

Flirting 2.0

Not dead; just hibernating. Ideas cannot die. On the topic of ideas, it was recently made obvious to TD that UTM students are much more active online than usual. Is it blogging? Facebook? Myspace? Twitter? While all the former are true, we are finding much more personal platforms of communication between the students at our … Continue reading

re: Wishlist (ways to make UTM better)

In response to Peter Buczkowski’s note on things he would like to see happen to make UTM a better place for students, TD has decided to make its own list. The ball has been rolling for some time, but we find that students rarely invest in sprucing up UTM physically, as well as culturally. Perhaps … Continue reading


Keeping an eye out for those black cats? Walking around ladders, rather than under? Avoiding salt shakers, unless to undo a seven year curse because you have recently broken a mirror? How about taking a temporary break from driving, walking in public areas, approaching puddles, leaving your house and functioning normally at all? If you’re … Continue reading

We’ve hit 10k

Or over 9000 hits, if that’s the way you want to see it. In celebration we will be taking any suggestions on what to do next on our blog. When we say this it could mean a permanent addition to our website, such as a section for reviewing movies. It could mean a report on … Continue reading

HST: What you need to know

This will be quick, since some of us are on vacation. The List. HST (Harmonized Sales Tax) is GST and PST combined. Does it mean less taxing? No it just means that the more you buy a taxable item, the less tax applied. In other words, if you’re less wealthy (cannot mass purchase an item), you’re … Continue reading
