On a particular day of September 2003 I hastily got out of my dad’s car and ran for the 6:50am GO train at Cooksville. Unfortunately I reached the platform as the train pulled away. This was not good as it was my first day of university. In an effort to distract myself from the worst case scenarios playing in my head, I decided to start a conversation with the only other person on the platform.
“Hey man, where are you headed?”
Random platform dude: “Ryerson”
“Really?! Me too! What year?”
“Me too! What program?”
We compared schedules and saw that we had almost every class together and then I spotted his name.
