Freedom at Last!

Standard

Woohoo! As of yesterday, exams are finally over! Like I said in a previous post, the Psychology exam was on Wednesday, and the Self and Other exam yesterday. Psych was okay, especially for the personality section, since those questions were exactly the same as the practice ones, and I had pretty much memorised those anyway. But while I think I did alright on the Psych exam, Self and Other sucked. The first essay I did was on domestication. When I was in there, I forgot almost everything about it, including all the specifics and all the examples. The second essay I did was on psychoanalysis, which was much better. I wrote four pages and used about three or four examples. So that was okay. I might have scraped 30% or so…

But anyway, now that exams are over, I have so much to do!

  • Watch more Adventure Time
  • Finish watching Full Metal Alchemist
  • Download and watch Doctor Who
  • Watch Weeds
  • Finish watching Community season 2
  • Watch the new episodes of Supernatural and Vampire Diaries
  • Read and watch Game of Thrones
  • Buy and read more Death Note
  • Visit Carly and Manny in Geelong
  • Go to Echuca
  • Go shopping for dresses and other random stuff
  • Write a 50,000 word story for NaNoWriMo
  • Catch up with second floor people
  • Go out drinking
  • Organise something for my 19th
  • Buy presents for people

So much to do! This is awesome, I have like three months of freedom ahead of me! Even so, I will never get through all this stuff… Oh well. Yay! I’m just so excited by these thoughts of freedom! Yes, I am insane.

Exams Are Looming

Standard

So. Exams this week. In 2 days I have the Psychology exam, and the next day is Self and Other. I am screwed. I have spent almost the entire SWOT VAC, as well as before then, and this weekend, procrastinating. And by almost, I mean 99%. I have spent about 2 hours answering practice psych questions, listened to 2 Self and Other lectures, and read about 3 halves of Self and Other readings. How productive! Yes, I am screwed.

I didn’t go to pretty much any of my Self and Other lectures this semester. And in the 4 or so I did attend, I spent my time sleeping. Psych’s okay. I could guess my way through that anyway. But I showed up late to half my tutes, and half an hour late to the one where we learnt about t-values and stuff, so I don’t have a clue how to do those. It’s just… Uni! The people are so much better than the actual work!

So yes, rather than study for an exam I have in 3 days, and don’t know anything about, I am procrastinating, by writing a blog post about how I have been procrastinating. I am a pro procrastinator. A PROcrastinator. Hehehe.

And on an awesome note, my Soundwave tickets just arrived! Yay!

Anniversaries

Standard

What do you count as an anniversary? First time you met? First time they asked you out (or vice versa)? First time you kissed? First date? First time you had sex? First “I love you”? Anniversaries are confusing. High school anniversaries are easy. It’s just “will you go out with me?” and “yes” and you’re dating all of a sudden! Wedding anniversaries are obviously even easier. But normal dating anniversaries? What the flip! When on earth do you become ‘official’? I’m so indecisive that I left my Facebook relationship status (ah, the obsession with technology nowadays) hidden until my boyfriend changed his. I suppose I’ll go by our first kiss for mine. It happened between the asking out and the first date, so it was pretty obvious we were dating then. But what about everyone else? What about people who do it the proper way, with the asking out, then the first date, and then the first kiss? Anniversaries sure are confusing.

And the anniversaries themselves. When do you celebrate them? I mean, there are some people out there who celebrate their ‘one week anniversary’. WTF? That’s not an anniversary! How lame! Perhaps the first month is understandable. And six months is okay too. Obviously, yearly anniversaries are fine, since they actually are anniversaries. But every month? Some people actually do that! I even saw someone who planned to celebrate their ’13 month anniversary’. Um… You have already made it to a year! Monthly anniversaries after a year just seem completely redundant! But whatever. Some people are just crazy. I’m good with yearly, thank you. And possibly for the first 6 month one, if my boyfriend wanted to. But seriously, a week? Shoot me in the foot.
