ROCCAT Vulcan 121 AIMO Review (Page 1 of 3)

"1.5 hours ought to be enough for anybody," I thought to myself as I was selecting the connecting return flight from San Antonio to Calgary via Atlanta in December of last year. After all, what could go wrong? As fate would have had it, the flight from San Antonio to Atlanta delayed a little over an hour, and unfortunately, there is only one flight from Atlanta to Calgary per day. To add salt to the wound, our entire group of four was split up and stuck either at the very back or near the back of the plane on the first flight. Now, seeing we got to Atlanta mere minutes before the Calgary flight was supposed to depart and being ambitious as we were, we got into action.

FSP CMT260 Review (Page 1 of 4)

Another online semester has been completed at the University of Calgary and many students are beginning to move into the summer semester. Continuing into the summer semester sounded quite attractive given it is another online semester, which would give me the opportunity to sit in the comforts of my home and study. Although this option was tempting and many other students have opted to take it, I have gladly decided to take a couple of months off from school to extend my work hours. It is always nice to have a little more money in your pocket, especially considering how expensive things can get.
