I wish I got to pick my lecture times. I wouldn't pick any 9am lectures for a start.

*glances at time*... 43 minutes until the THREE HOUR MORNING LECTURE starts.

*cries*

42 minutes.

So, I had a job interview yesterday and by all means it went well; ten times better than my phone interview last month. I find face to face interviews are less torturous than phone.

Even though, the job has nothing to do with my major or degree it's still a good job considering the current work environment in this economy.

And yeah, don't underestimate extra curricular activities on your resume; mine was really a lifesaver since my work history is really short.

As it turns out, 3 hour long lectures on Shakespeare given by Portuguese women who have very strong accents are NOT the easiest way of spending your mornings.

Yesterday I had my second interview and it didn't go that well. The questions they asked were different than I the types that I had prepared for. For almost every question I had to think for a few seconds to come up with an answer. I know it's generally ok to do that, but I hate having to come up with something for a question that I haven't thought that they would ask me. I got out of there feeling like both the people who interviewed me were not interested in me at all. They shook my hand but their body language just seemed very uninterested and complacent. I can only hope they do that with every person because I got a bad vibe from them.

I'll find out what's going to happen in a week. At the very least, I now a few more types of questions that can be asked in interviews now.

I know back in high school my Business Studies teacher would always play classical music through class, he said it helped you take in more/remember, etc and said to use it as a study technique. I used it and i managed to get just beyond average for my final exams, compared to the crappy marks i had been getting through the year.

Thats probably what it is.

maybe, we all have to go to the auditorium and some old guy (he's like 94) plays some piano music for 4 hours long

it sounds extremely boring

One of the more pathetic attention-whoring ploys I've seen on NG. I'm betting it's just his way of "leaving NG with a bang".

Lmao, grow up.


20 year olds don't just spontaneously have "multiple heart attacks".

They do if they were born with a bad heart. And I almost had two heart attacks in the same day. It happens to me every now and then, but it's never been as bad as this one. I might be visiting the hospital next time it acts up.

Anyway, college has been extremely busy for me the last week or so. I've finally caught up a little bit, but it's going to get busy again rather quickly in the next couple of days.

Hmm, I have just one more chapter to study for an exam Wensday, but other than I really don't have much to do for a little bit. I'm still a week ahead in one of my classes and won't have an exam in the others for another week.

Tonight I'm getting some Chinese food and then I'm heading out to the boxing match here. The other teams are Penn State, Army, Navy, Mansfield, etc.. Some other colleges from the area also. It's awesome since the matches are free for students to attend. My old roommate is ranked 3rd in the nation and boxes 136. He's the last match of the night so it'll be a late one.

One of my classes were canceled today and I feel like skipping another one. It will be the first time that I skipped a class not only this semester, but also this year. It's not one of the classes that takes attendance as a grade and it's a class that I can afford to miss once or twice a week and still be perfectly fine in terms of knowing what we did in class.

Even though he is giving our exam back today. I'm almost 100 percent that I got a 100 percent on it though. So I'm not too worried about that either.

Do you guys have Reading Weeks? It's a week where pretty much all of the courses in the uni get a week off of lectures to hunker down and revise and write essays and most importantly go out and get trashed. It neatly coincides with school half-terms and people often go home for some or all of it.

Except me, because my shitty course doesn't have a reading week, so I have just as many lectures as always, except all my flat mates are surprised when I trudge in at 7:30, having been in the labs doing homework all afternoon and evening.

I had one right at the beginning of this term, first week back.

Most ridiculous time to have a reading week, if you ask me, because there's nothing to catch up on, per se. All my friends have their reading week this week, which is somewhat irritating as I'm hung over today and will probably be shuffling down to lectures in my baggy tracksuit bottoms looking generally malcontented, grunting negative comments about everything I set eyes upon.

At least it's afternoon lectures today. I really much, MUCH prefer them to morning lectures. Seems more relaxed somehow.

Naw Brum Fo Lyfe.

Birmingham were the last uni to get back to me, and only when I went up for an applicants-with-offers open day did I decide I wanted to go there, before then, I was set on Canterbury/Southampton.

No, why?

I have a friend who was rejected from 4 of his 6 choices when he applied a couple of years ago. It confused me considering he was a seemingly model applicant. He was a much better applicant than I was anyway, and I got 6 offers from a non-serious application that I only did to keep my school happy.

When I applied seriously the year after, I cancelled the applications for which the offers hadn't come in for as soon as I got an offer from my first choice.

Nah. I had the grades to get into my first choice but I decided to go to a smaller local college for the first couple of semesters. I paid less for the required gen eds that I would have taken at my first choice so it was better overall for me.

It takes time. I didn't really make any good friends until my second year. Just go to the local hangouts, join some clubs, and enjoy yourself.

Today was one of those days where I was just going to sleep right in, but this time by accident. My alarm went off at 7:00 AM like it always does and I shut it off. I don't remember anything after that as I fell right back to sleep.

Luckily my girlfriend woke me up at 7:30 so I had a reasonable amount of time to get ready for an 8:00 class that is somewhere around half a mile away from my room. I walked into the room at 7:59. I'm happy I didn't miss because he let us know about two extra credit assignments that are due first thing Monday, which I would have not known anything about because I don't have that class again until Monday.
