Hey all. As it’s the beginning of the last week of lectures at uni for this semester, many students find themselves up to their eyeballs in work. Me being a prime example of said student, I am taking some time of doing work for a bit longer today to keep my head clear which seems to be full of stuff at the moment.
Some would say things are a little TOO busy. All my work this semester has scheduled hands in assignments and 3 of the 4 have program demonstrations to prove the content in within our applications and can prove we are utilising it properly to be graded. The real kick in the pants for me is that this work has seemed to land within the last 2 weeks. This is all fine and dandy, except even starting some of the work early i’ve found myself spending almost all my time doing work or feeling bad about not doing it. Some would say this is the life of a student but I fee like to me, it’s sucked the happiness out of me at times, rather like a Dementor. Anyway, I feel like I needed another place to rant to and it’ll all be over soon enough so I guess i’ll just have to suck it up eh?
Anyway further things for me to moan about? Recently Facebook has introduced it’s Questions application thingy which allows users to create a poll-type question and ask people who can reply by check box and even leave comments on it. This was originally something that seemed really useful to me, as before many people had opted to use user-made applications to substitute the fact that Facebook hadn’t covered this base. So far though, it’s been abused for fairly stupid things like “what do you call this item of food in your region” and “where i’m from is better than where you’re from LOLOLOL” type questions. It’s became tedious and i’ve started to answer to troll them on purpose, claiming im a female and the best shire is the one from The Lord of the Rings. It’s silly, stupid and worst of all, seems to be becoming some platform for people to judge each other on. People’s opinions are shouted down and abused by the masses if someone doesn’t agree with something they apparently should, purely because everyone else does. As a man of religion I find it kinda tedious that some of these people who claim religion is always shoved down their throats freely shout their mouths off about atheism in the exact same sort of preachy manner. I have never pushed my beliefs on any person before and I believe everyone is given the ability to make their own mind up and act on it accordingly.
Yet another rant of the Cipe is how broke I am. Buying a desktop during this semester was not my wisest decision, despite the reward it gave me. It’s much better to use than my laptop as is the general rule of thumb anyway. Being £500 down since January has really hurt my survival of late, having to borrow money from home at least a couple of times now. It sucks I have to sit back and get the cheap things from the takeaway, if I can even afford one at all these days. I feel like an absolute tramp when going through Asda basing all my purchases on cost per meal. I know this sounds moany and I know students are stereotypically poor but that’s the point of me coming here, so you can see what is on my mind and being a poor student definitely takes the biscuit for the most annoying thing right now.
So as I sit here, looking for dregs in an obviously empty can of Cherry Coca Cola, I hope to find more general happiness soon enough. Will save some more rants for next time
