I had no idea I’d be confronted with student government before 10 a.m. But who am I kidding? It’s AMS elections. Nowhere is safe.
“From the Cult” will be churning out great, important content that I’m sure will truly change the hearts and minds of the voting population, make all the candidates block us on all social media, and have people on Reddit and Facebook comments saying that The Ubyssey sucks and is too much like Buzzfeed.
Though this year is a bit different from times gone by, as the voting period will last a raunchy three weeks period — thanks to not wanting to break the law. That’s a lot of time, so we wondered what other things could happen in that same amount of time. Here’s the skinny.

While the seagulls make for good listeners and crows for excellent background noise, the real crowd-pleasers are the furry four legged visitors.
I say that as if you haven't had it marked in your calendars since August. With a whole 120 unadulterated academia-free hours, what ever will you do?!
The two pancakes I had covered in just enough maple syrup to be wet sat flaccid on my plate. I took my first bite, and they were better than I expected. I remembered that pancakes make me feel sick after a while, but I kept eating.
The snow has brought excitement, cancellation of classes and childish glee to UBC, and what better way to celebrate that than by making all sorts of snowpeople across campus such as this incredible replica of Santa Ono himself.
Whether you've got a Valentine or not, there's no excuse not to kiss some ass this Valentine's Day.
On February 12, UBC shut down its classes for a snow day. Some stayed at home and cozied up watching Netflix. Others hit the slopes or the trails for a wintery hike.
