The kids always go in the back garden of the empty house and make noise and jump on things.
The annoying little shits are back, they were back in next door's empty property again. The guy who owns it accidentally left underneath his house unlocked and they were going under there, and we heard breaking glass earlier. We went over and yelled at them to get out of there and leave. Where the hell are these kids' parents??? They obviously don't care about them cos they just let them wander around into people's properties :-? It's a bit worrying cos we're going away for 3 and a half weeks soon, and we're worried they're gonna come in our property while we're not here :roll:

Total #firstworldproblems post here....

So Sydney had a big storm on Wednesday night & as a result of that our cable TV signal is now patchy, meaning that we have no signal whatsoever to about half the channels we have, including all of the free-to-air ones. It's like taking a lucky dip as to which ones actually work! Oh & to top it all off, the bloody cable company (good ol' Foxtel) can't get someone out to see what the problem is until Thursday. Yep, that's right, Thursday. WTF? #nothappyjan :evil:
Let's embrace the point of no return.

I do these thing after a feeling (after, based on??), but for some reason, I would write to with capital T, rest would look wrong, though!

It's the other way around for me. :oops: I'm kinda OC when all the words in the title are not capitalized.

LOL I agree totally :lol: I always cringe when I'm out and I see girls wearing leggings with a short as hell top, I want to yell at them "Either wear a longer top so you're covered up or put proper trousers on!" lol :lol: I do wear leggings with long tops occasionally, but that's only cos I'm short so a lot of shirts are like dresses on me so they hang down to my knees :lol:

I don't like how people lately open threads in the Artist Chart Analysis or Genre Junction sections only to say that they were the first ones to do so without reliable sources and basically nothing to express. It only turns those sections into a huge mess and people need to stop thinking that it's some kind of competition and rather develop a broader point of view.

I hate irresponsible people whose irresponsibility affects you because you're lumped in a group with them. Seriously, it's like if you want anything done right, you have to do it yourself, and when you go ahead and do it, people get angry and call you a control freak. #damnedifyoudo #damnedifyoudont :x

Ugh, thank goodness that was the last group project for my undergraduate degree. #overtherainbow #abovethebullsh*t

I hope you don't encounter someone who is like that at work. It's more frustrating. Ugh

Tomorrow I fly home to NZ - I have to take 3 flights home, plus we have a 10 hour layover in LA, then the flight to Sydney is going to be around 14 hours. PLUS I have to get up at 5am tomorrow cos our shuttle to the airport comes at 5:30, cos our flight from DC to LA is an early one. Kill me now :o

Sooooo much traveling and waiting around :cry: I'm gonna be so happy to get home you can't believe :lol:

I understand that all too well. All that time in the lab whilst the arts students had like 3 lectures a week :wink:
Biology, chemistry and medicine are known to be very time-consuming indeed. 10am to 6pm days are not unusual due to the laboratory work. Still wonder how that works with the CP thing :lol: .
In my case, I have 8 lectures and seminars (3 of them with additional exercises) and that's OK.
There are differences, 3 lectures a week sounds kind of few though. Either way, I know that the mathematics students at my college only have 3 lectures (+ 3 exercises) in their first semester and it's 4 (+ an exercise for each) for the law students. Guess it depends on how labor-intensive each lecture/seminar is.

This semester for example,
I have 1 course with 6CP,
2 courses with 5CP,
5 with 3CP and
I get 1 additional CP and another 2 CP for bigger exams.

We have this "rule" that 30 hours of work are worth 1 CP :wink: E.g. I had two 4 week "Module" that brought 10CP each :roll: :lol:

Could you explain this in a more detailed and coherent way?

In my case, my timetable looks like this:
Monday: 12am-4pm
Tuesday: no courses
Wednesday: 10am-4pm
Thursday: 2pm-6pm
Friday: 8am-12pm

There's an additional 4-hour-seminar I have to attend 3 times during the semester.

I do one seminar than I'd have to during the semester as I'd only have one lecture on Friday and that wouldn't really be worth the ride imo.

I can't find my keys :-? I seriously have no damn clue what I did with them before I left for the USA. I don't remember hiding them, so the only place they could be would be in my Dad's car cos I went out with him the morning before my trip and I used my keys and put them in his glovebox, I could have forgotten to take them back out. But if I did... surely my Dad would have opened his glovebox in the past three weeks and seen them :-? Arghhh...

Ha! Exactly!!!
In my head I was like "nobody taught me how to do these thang I figured it out myself" :lol:

Anyway, I just got back from the doctor because I have this ear congestion for a week now. He told me I probably got that from the cold I have last week and it might also be connected to a sinus problem. Then, he told me that I have to avoid cold beverages and anything frozen! It's summer here right now and the temperature is around 33C. I need some daily dose of cold juice and ice cream to survive!!! :evil:

LOL that's like my Mum and any technology ever. She couldn't figure out how to use the in-flight entertainment touchscreens on our flights throughout our trip... :lol: I'd be watching something or typing on my laptop with earphones in, and I'd feel her poke me. I take the earphones out and she goes "Megan, how do I go back to the menu and pick another show, I'm bored of this one", I show her how to do it and go back to what I was doing. Then I feel her poke me AGAIN, and I have to show her once again. Repeat this on all the flights we took with inflight entertainment :lol:

Whew girl...I know this pain. I have a class that my grade is 70% group work and it's been a mucky mess since the first day. I have the problem of being "too reliable". So when people slack, they'll know that I will do it...which is some BS (because I don't like my grade being played with). We have a facilitator in our group who is very unstable and forever doing the most. And two guys that don't do shit (but once these group member ratings come out, they'll regret that) Thank God this is it for undergrad group work. They have been some of my worst college experiences EVER!!!!

When your last day of class and when is graduation for you? Last day for me is May 1st (Classes end two days before and senior finals are on the two days after it) and the big day is May 17th for me.

I've been trying my best to "enjoy the last moments" but I'm so ready to get these two weeks over with...They can fall off fast like a flop for all I care. Just give me my degree.
