Sorry I haven't posted here in a while, it's been a pretty hectic week for me. But thankfully I'm all done now, today was my last final. Overall I was happy enough with them, Biology was quite a bitch (it was the hardest by far AND negative marking applied) but other than that no real complains.

And what I meant to say was that my life has been filled completely with stress since I've been done. Constant working, constant money worries about next semester, hoping that I get my friend from high school as my roommate, my mother is having surgery tomorrow, I found out that I didn't get a job that I applied for down at college, and just the fact that I have to take that class over that I failed is killing me inside.
Ouch man, that bites bigtime, hopefully that'll all work itself out.

So I'm in one of the many computer rooms around my university this morning, at 8:20am, printing off my coursework to get it in comfortably within the 1pm deadline today. By sheer chance, I meet a guy I know off my course in the computer room. I ask him how his coursework went.
"Oh, yeah it's not bad, I've just finished the introduction." He replies, well aware of the 1pm deadline, and seemingly without a care in the world.
The almost blasé attitude some people have towards college never ceases to amaze me.
This happened to me two weeks ago: my friend Taz and I were on our way to take our final Computers exam (which due to several midterms was only worth 50% of the final grade) when he got a call from some guy he knows who was in the same module. After the phone call, he told me that this idiot had missed all the midterms through his own laziness, and had called -bearing in mind this was 10 minutes before the exam started- to ask "Is there an exam on today?"
Seriously, how disinterested do you need to be for that situation to occur? As it turned out, he missed it, meaning he'll get a nice 0% in a module which anyone with basic Microsoft Office knowledge could easily get a B in.
