fastest way to get from there to here: go into montage, or a jump cut!

I have some transportation woes. I’m from St. George but due to options advisable to me at UTSC that ensure that I graduate(long story) I have to take 3 classes at the UTSC campus. Three out of the five days of the week I have classes at St. George and at UTSC on the same day. I made sure this was a doable plan because there are at least 2.5 hours in between the transfers. However, I as wondering if you knew a quick route between the two campuses that have been passed on by others in my situation or if one of those magic yellow school buses I see around Hart House is a shuttle from St. George to UTSC and visa versa? Any advice will help. Thanks.

the secret to love:get a bit more involved on campus and go dancing. and dress cool.

You know what, I really want to have a boyfriend. I mean not someone just to hang out with and go to bed, but to love and care for, someone who’d love and care for me too.
The question is, how to make that happen?
There have been guys I liked, even loved, but it all has been one-sided. And there wernen’t ones who’d like me and I wouldn’t like – I mean no guy has shown interest in me.
See, I won’t go out with a guy I don’t care about, I somehow can’t. Some with holding hands, kissing. For me, it’s something special, so I want to be sure. But even if I did, nobody has asked me out or anything. Nobody knows that I need to be involved in order to start something (at least like the guy), so that’s not the reason. I don’t know. I really don’t want to be alone anymore. I feel lonely, unwanted and unloved.
