    Left, Right, and Wrong
    Well I sent off my second university application, this time to a school in NY where you can take the classes online if you want. This one seems really neat because I could take classes from home and not have to commute across the border each day! Plus it's about 1/5 the cost of Niagara University. So now I just wait and see, and will probably make my decision based on how much financial aid each school offers... Either way I think it will be fine.

    I need to rant a bit about something that I'd like all my American friends to hear. If you are not American, you can skip this if you want because you most likely don't have this tendency. I very very rarely rant about Americans, in fact I usually stick up for them (they get bashed quite regularly where I live). But every once in a while something is said by someone from the US and it just makes me cringe. The side of the road that you drive on, is not the "RIGHT" (as in, correct) side of the road. The British, Thai, and other countries that drive on the LEFT side of the road, do not drive on the WRONG side of the road. It is simply the 'other' side of the road. There is no authority we carry as an American that says our side is correct and anything else is incorrect. You may laugh, but I think this is a serious issue. By saying things like this, you perpectuate the stereotypes that the rest of the world has about us. And I seriuolsy mean the rest of the world.

    Please stand with me and fight to break down these stereotypes.

      I disagree. Those crazy Brits are totally driving on the wrong side of the road. :p

      Good luck with all the paperwork.

      I always thought we were one big happy continent!

      What you say it true, and the U.S. will have to open their eyes to the fact that our way is not the only way...

    About Me

    Name: jamie
    Home: St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada
    About Me: I am an American living in Ontario. I've just recently started going to school again for a BA in Human Services. I like mexican and indian food and watching tv way more than the average individual. I absolutely love talking to my parents on the phone and my brother is one of my best friends. I'm married to a great guy whose pretty much the exact opposite of me but he loves me and makes laugh and we have a lot of fun. I didn't always feel this way, but these days I'm feelin' pretty good. That's my life, welcome to chaos and order.
