Update on the Fly

I spent the morning reading about fascism and anti-semitism, first in Russia, then in Poland.

All: Gosh! Did you? That sounds so incredibly fascinating. Oh how we wish we could have been with you to enjoy it! Why oh why must you have all the fun?

It wasn't as boring as all that. I have a lecture for Russian Politics at 10:00, but I'll have to leave a little earlier than normal, because its in a Law Theatre way off in the depths of the uni. Stupid law. After that, I have a tute for the same course, and then fifteen minutes of "make-up" lecture for the one I missed yesterday. The lecturer sits down in his office with me and another girl, who may or may not be called Lisa, and covers for us in fifteen minutes what took him an hour to tell everyone else yesterday while we were both at work. So... that's my Russian Politics morning.

Then, later today, I have a lecture for Fascism and Anti-Fascism. This is actually a LOT more interesting then it sounds.

Ethereal: Well done! Positive attitude and all that! Yay uni!!!

*waves to Ethereal* We have an agreement to try and be positive about uni. It's enjoyable and intellectually stimulating, isn't it, Eth?

Eth: Er... yes. Fascinating...

Anyway, I have a tute after that, again for Fascism/Anti-Fascism. I like tutes, so despite it meaning I have to do a lot of reading, I'm glad I have two of them today.

I have another two tommorrow, as well as three lectures. I've got a lecture on US Politics, followed immediately by one on Australian Political Parties, followed immediately by another Fascism lecture. Yuk, huh? As Intellectually Stimulating as they are, THREE IN A ROW is a bit much!

Then I have tutes for US Pols and Australian Parties.

I have only FOUR essays this semester! FOUR!!! JUST FOUR!!! This is the most wondrous thing in the whole of ever. Only four!!!

Third Year seems pretty much like the other two years, although perhaps due to my choice of courses, there's a little bit more reading than normal. Because of work, I only have uni two days a week, so they're pretty crowded days. But that leaves me Monday and Friday to come in and work hard on essays and things.

As for writing:

I've put the new version of Morgan, now given a working title of Patience (Oh, feel the Thematic Linkage!), to the critiquing group at Obernewtyn.net. I've got one critique back so far, and it wasn't that detailed, but it said pretty much what I thought about the piece. I'm not sure if that's good or bad!!!

LorF: The LorFination has been slow of late. I'm a little bit stuck with coming up with plausible reasons for Kate's memories to be triggered. She's reliving the night of New Years Eve 2008 backwards. I'm just running out of convicing ways for those memories to be triggered. Once I sought that out, I will AGAIN be on the home stretch. So NOBODY INSPIRE ME OR IT'LL NEVER FINISH!!!

*glares at Rigel*

The new LorF message boards have been opened up at http://lifeorfreedom.proboards57.com, and anyone curious about LorF is urged to go there and ask as many questions as they want.

Well, I have a law theatre to get to, so it's time to launch the expedition.

GAH! ANOTHER CRITIQUE IS UP!!! WHY OH WHY DID I CHECK NOW???

*wanders off*

Edit: Bloody LJ, giving me cheek!!! Actually that cut off before was MY fault. Whoops. Anyway. I'm back from my Russia-Fest.

Every time I go to the bathrooms in the Law Building, I see girls in suits. I mean a suit? To uni? In 30 degree heat???

Why not just wear a big sign that says "I'm a Law Student"?

United Front of Scary Law Students: Yeah... cos wearing knee-high boots and stockings that don't match under a puffy skirt doesn't scream "ARTS STUDENT!" at high volume.

Touche.

*glares at* who? Are you glaring at me? MSN? The LorF boys poll?

*is worried*

Also, how much work are you doing this year? It's exhausting just reading about it. My third year timetable went like this:
MONDAY: 8-11am, Scriptwriting, 2-4pm Indo lecture
TUESDAY: 9-12am, Fiction, 4-6 Indo tute
And that was it! The four-hour break was stupid and frustrating, but at least I only had two days on campus. And here you are, having three lectures and two tutes on one day! How do you fit it all in??

Those law students certainly are dedicated. When I was working at Melbourne Uni, I often had to go to the law school. It was almost a ten minute walk away and it was packed full of people in suits or extremely expensive looking clothing.

And everybody - EVERYBODY - in the library was sitting in front of a laptop.

*applauds postitive attitude*
Yay! After all, it's hard to beat my glowing recomendations last night of "It's not quite as bad as I thought it'd be"
Although I do have an advantage in being positive about Uni this year *grin*

I feel for you with all the classes crammed together though. :( Of course, all your politics classes couldn't sound more boring to me, as you know.
Good luck. Yay, uni. It's great :)

I'm sure Russian politics is far better than Australian politics.

Juuuuust like with history.

*cringes away from glaring*

:P

Yay for having tutes! Though I always tend to dominate in any of mine, because I have noooo problem voicing an opinion :P

Now go write LorF...

Ah, don't you just love third year and the lack of assignments?

This semester I have one essay, 8 contributions to online discussion ( each a paragraph or so) , an in class test, an exam and a online group essay.

Why should that scream arts student? I'd do that, well I do minus the stockings , but that might change when I do my stripy socks...

Oh wait, I am technically an arts student... Is a degree in English counted as arts too?
