Sounds good to me. ^^

I imagine they wouldn't have. R was one of the people who said he was finished too - and he'd been doing nothing for at least ten minutes before we hit the halfway point. x)

I'd even go skiing with you even though I usually prefer ice skating...

Been chatting with A for the last 30 minutes. Now I've no motivation to study anymore. :(

Eh, why so long?
I translated some more of the phone novel we started in yesterday's lecture. Preparation isn't required, but it's fun and still productive in a way...

I wanted to do something productive once I got home but really couldn't find the energy. I didn't even have the motivation to cook; I ordered a kebab instead. :rolleyes: So I'm just thinking about Luca while watching TV for now. He's been in my dreams for about a week. ^^;

Aw. Any interesting news from him?

Forgot the internet was down for maintenance yesterday night. :| Back from class and doing homework now. Think I did well on the last kanji test!

Nothing new. Just the same old stuff.

That's good to hear! :]



Day off! Well, kind of. I need to: revise for an assessment on web design; write the main feature for the college newsletter; go to Rainbows; and do the housework. Yay. x.x

Revise for an assessment?

Finished for today as well, although I'm meeting M later. Also, the Culture lecturer will be holding a speech on Japanese travel experiences in Vienna this evening - so Culture won't take place, but I'm interested in the speech.

Oops, second time I forgot to switch to German after looking up Japanese words online. Would you understand it if I wrote in hiragana? xD

To pass a unit we need to meet certain objectives called "learning outcomes". For my web design class there are three: the first one is a written assessment; the second is an oral assessment; the third is to create a website (this was the one I spent the weekend doing). The written one is tomorrow at 1pm.

That actually sounds quite interesting. ;o

Ah, I see. Good luck then!

Yep. She's going to start with the Iwakura mission (a journey of scholars and government officials around Europe during Meiji era) and then work her way through literature chronologically. I'm sure she'll do a good job at it!
Also, I want to ask her about the internship... application deadline was Friday.

I'm pretty confident about passing it. I knew most of the material prior to taking the class, anyway. It's all internet-based questions. Quite easy stuff if you live on the internet like I do. XD

That description makes it sound less interesting. :P And what's the internship for?

Then it's good. or not.

Really? I quite liked it! Especially the author she introduced who only complained about Vienna, but liked that he learned how to quarrel with Europeans. XD

The internship / work experience is required at uni. You have to work for 160 hrs in a field that's connected to your subject. I already earned 45 hours through helping at the conference.

It's simple but nerdy. :( I don't like computers right now. Guess who is going to be shelling out £1,305 for a new one once she has the money in May? xD

Oh, fun. I hope you balance that out with 320 hours of partying.

Glad I'm not the only nerd here. :P But I know what you mean... well, not quite. My laptop might be broken. I don't plan to get a new one for over 1,000€ though. ^^;

Almost lol'd at that. If you think that, you don't know me well enough.

Nope, you're still the only nerd.
It's a long-term investment. It won't be used for casual Internet browsing; it'll be used only if I need to use certain software. So hopefully it should last longer than my last two laptops.


Hence the "hope!" Maybe I'll have to get you drunk when we meet...

That counts as needing to use software! x)

The pro with that is that it'll be cheaper! XD One of my mates gets drunk 4-5 nights a week - couldn't understand how he could afford it until our Christmas night out: he was tipsy after two pints. :P

Ah, I see. But it sounds like you do way more browsing than using software!

That should be true... Alcohol is non-existent in my regular expenses list, but you already know that. x)

Tired. Also didn't get any writing done.

Exactly! xD For Internet browsing I'll just be using my iPad. :) Which I do most of the time anyway - including just now.

You're so not a cool student. You should be making the most of your uni experience! :P I've already been at the vodka and am now finishing up the bottle of wine my Dad left when he went to bed. x) And I'm in college 9-4 tomorrow. XD

Apple person! >.>

Don't care if I'm cool. Your definition of being cool sounds boring and senseless to me, although drinking at home is better than drinking while out. I already had a bottle of Eristoff and can't really afford more for the rest of January.

Did I not mention that the new laptop will be a Mac? x)

There's more to my definition of cool than just drinking, hon. That's not even a big part! Quite a few of the people I go out with to bars don't even drink. It's simply a case of being social.

You did. That's why. x)

Being social? How am I not then? During high school I was able to spend days not talking to anyone unless I had to... There's been a lot of improvement in that department and most of it has happened in the last two years.
Anyway, that's not really what I wanted to say... but I forgot.

... shush you.

I know that feeling - I didn't even talk to my family age 13-16. My mother's* still sore about it!

I found I didn't start being social properly until I moved to Glasgow. But the real change has been this (academic) year - my time is mostly divided between being social and college (where I'm required to socialise anyway: being quiet leads to being left out). And when I'm at home I only go to my room to sleep; I'm always in the lounge with the family.

* On that note I only just ordered my parents anniversary card an hour ago. It's their 21st on Friday. Not sure if it'll arrive on time. >.>

Hehe.

Couldn't get around talking to my family, but the rest is different. No wonder I got so close to A during that time. Whenever she was absent from school I'd put on a gloomy look and keep to myself for that day. ^^;

But it's similar here. Plus, for some reason approaching people isn't so hard anymore. Like with S and H and (another) A. x)

Do they get anything else from you? Just remembered a fun fact: I'm a few months older than my parents' marriage...

I'm off to bed. Class in the morn. :(
