I have an essay to write about the history of logic. It doesn't seem like something that would have a history you could easily write about and I don't really see how it's relevant to what I'm doing anyway, but whatever, I've got to do it.

I've not had to write an essay for a long time, seeing as this is a computer science degree so it's probably going to be hard to get back into. Only 1000 words required though, although I can't even think how many pages that would take me.

Things in college that piss me off: When a professor tells me that I should've talked to them earlier about review for a test during class when I emailed them over the weekend in advanced to avoid rushing them. It's like they don't even read what I'm sending to them.

So, yesterday I had a small conversation with a guy who offers to review the diploma thesis. I applyed for the topic "alternatives to domain name systems", which seems to be quite interesting. Now I only have to get all the paperwork done and I guess I can start writing the thesis in october. :)

I just started getting nervous for the first time, I go to uni on Friday. I'm a bit anxious about house mates and I'm not yet sure whether I'm sharing a room or not.

I don't know any universities in the UK that have shared rooms. You might share a toilet, and you'll definitely share a kitchen, but you'll have your own room.

I'm not looking forward to the desperately social types trying to make friends with everyone, I guess because I'm not the sort to make such an obvious effort, I just feel self conscious and a little bit pathetic. Of course I want to make friends, especially in my house but I really don't enjoy all the introductions and awkward small talk. "Hey, I'm Jack. What's your course? Cool! Where do you live? I live near there - cool!"

There's no obligation to be insanely social. I went out with friends at MOST once a week. Some people will go out every night, especially early on, but I couldn't think of anything worse.

Is it your first year? There's so many people around it's impossible to not make friends.

I had to share a room in first year. Was a lot more bearable than I thought it'd be, though.

Interesting alright but I'd have no idea where to begin with that.

For my artificial intelligence module we have to go a presentation in a few weeks, but we don't get to choose who is in our presentation groups. We just have to pick three titles that we wouldn't mind doing and then the lecturer will group people based on their preferences. I hate giving presentation, and because it's a class of around 60 people, I am shitting it.

As for you Ejit, I guess moving 350 miles away or whatever it was would be a little daunting but you'll be alright. You'll always have me :3

Easy enough with a history of the current DNS system. ^^
Also, there's plenty of source material and then, one thing leads to another. It's not that I have to implement something myself, I just have to give some kind of overview over the current status quo and state my opinion to the alternatives.

I'm just sittin here...... waiting for my Calc class to start... I hate the professor for this course. I know that i knew the material for the first few chapters. We take a chapter test and what happens? I get a 30/50. I know that is completely wrong. I knew the material. Hell, i even STUDIED! I plan on bringing it up at some point after or during class. Turns out a lot of people got severely low scores...

Anyone in the UK ever actually buy an NUS Extra card? My uni seems to really be pushing them this year. Got a bunch of shit through the door today about the freshers/refreshers week and almost every bit of paper in the envelope had something about them on it. I've never come across a single situation where student discount is offered that I've not been granted with just my uni ID card.

Universities in the UK don't share rooms? That sounds kind of lame. Everyone that I've talked to at my university that has a single room complains about it being boring. I guess it's cool since you can do whatever you want to your room but it just doesn't seem as fun.

It's not like you can't leave your room, it's not a prison (although there was a running joke that the rooms in the old block of my college were smaller than a standard prison cell). I can't think of anything worse than having to share a room. I hated sharing a hallway and kitchen with people, don't know what the fuck I'd have done if I had to share a room too.

I'm currently involved with my school's gaming club and Japanese culture club. I'm also a member of the table tennis team and dodgeball team. So, yeah, I'm getting around.

I don't think I ever actually joined any clubs or societies. They seemed to have a high presence early on in the year when they were trying to attract new members, but now I never hear anyone talk about most of the societies that I originally saw. Perhaps they do still exist but I never spend much time in the student union building which probably explains why I never hear of them now.

Taking Monday and Tuesday off this coming week due to a couple of my lectures being cancelled. I've only been back 2 weeks and already had 3 days off.

Gay-Straight Alliance? Is that exactly like it sounds? Well it sounds like a cool club. I wouldn't mind joining a club like that but I wouldn't have time to get involved in it. Have fun at Six Flags. :)

I'm currently in the running club. I just love running and it's great since I don't actually have to show up to any of the club meetings/runs but they still consider me a part of it.

A lot of people do. The name originated in the real world when my friends started calling me by my initials. "ZJ" is short for Zach Jones.

So for the past hour I've been in my dorm room with three other people and we've all been on our laptops doing different things with music playing quietly. It's quite relaxing and just amazing to be able to relax with people around. I love college. :)

Wow, that's horrible. We're only allowed either a fridge or a microwave (not both) or something that is both in one thing but you can to get it from the school and it kind of seems like a huge ripoff. My roommates and I have a fridge and I'm sure it would suck without it.

How many of you guys have been to home football games? I went to my first one yesterday and it ended in my team getting its ass kicked by a conference opponent. Not pretty. I still liked the experience of being at the game, though.

My school doesn't have a football team. :( I assume that football games are really exciting since I've seen some college games on tv. But I bet it's not as awesome when your school is losing.

We don't have a football team either. Last Thursday was the first official sports game on our campus against another college. Women's volleyball. I didn't go, but i heard there was free pizza. If i knew that, i wouldve gone....

So I'm finally getting around to writing an essay that's due for Friday. Really wish I got this out the way earlier because it's boring as fuck. Only has to be 1000 words long and I'm at 300 and lost all motivation to continue.

Quite frankly, I never want to hear about Aristotle or the history of logic again. Why do I even need to know this stuff? I'm a computer scientist, not a philosopher/historian.

The same reason why i need to know why beauty from females and raw masculinity are pervading advertisements of the world and are skewing our views on "true beauty." As an aspiring Optometrist, I don't give a ffffuuuuuuccckkkkkk....
