So I'm an OBZPC now...

Posted by Ghost of Romance , in Music, Education, Daily Life Oct 23 2012 · 141 views

Getting the notification "you have been given a warning" is a bit unsettling when you have forgotten that you renewed your premier membership.

And other than that, I still don't have much to blog about. My first coursework was set on Monday, and it involves 3000 words about the European Convention on Human Rights... done in a website FAQ format. I really hate doing writing that is supposed to be done like a website or magazine article, especially when it's just not something that you would actually see in an article. I'd much rather just do a 6000 word dissertation on it. But oh well, I'll have to live with it.

Tomorrow I'll be going to see Devin Townsend, so that should be fun. Would love to go see his London show, The Retinal Circus, on Saturday as that is going to be his biggest show yet, but it's sold out an I don't really have money to spend on it anyway. Admittedly, that probably wouldn't stop me, so it's good that it's sold out.


University so far

Posted by Ghost of Romance , in Daily Life, Education, Music Oct 01 2012 · 118 views

Well, it's my second week of lectures and my third week at university overall. So far I'm enjoying it, but I can confirm that law does indeed require a lot of work and reading. Just looking at the pile of books I have to read is enough to rid me of any joy or energy I may have. Admittedly though, they are pretty interesting and it does remind me of Sociology, so that's good.
Fresher's Fair was on Thursday, so I took the opportunity to sign up for the Alternative Music Society, the Poker Society and the Law Society. Hopefully those will be fun.
Also as it turns out, there is an Extreme Ironing Society here.

On a separate note, Epicloud by the Devin Townsend Project is a fantastic album. Been listening to it a lot since it arrived last week, and the bonus disk of demos, Epiclouder, might even be better than the actual album. Either way, the album lives up to its name, and although Devin was definitely telling the truth when he said that this would be a much simpler and more accessible and straightforward album than usual, it's still great.

And now I'll go back to reading law books.


Moving into university accommodation

Posted by Ghost of Romance , in Education, Daily Life Sep 14 2012 · 144 views

Well, university starts soon and I visited today to collect my keys and check out the place where I'll spend the next three years of studying. It's actually pretty nice, about the same size as my room now, so that's great. No wi-fi though, and the internet provided is probably going to be fairly slow, so I'll have to look into getting better internet for myself.
I came to the conclusion that I am the second to visit my floor/hall, as there was some milk in one of the fridges, however I did not come into contact with its owner.

Now I just have until Sunday to figure out what I need that I don't have and buy it, and then I'll be moving in. Actually can't wait, although I'll miss this summer of not doing anything.


And I'm back

Posted by Ghost of Romance , in Daily Life Sep 02 2012 · 79 views

I got a new monitor, so I can use the computer again =D
And I ended up not having to spend any money because my dad kindly bought it for me in return for me doing some accounting for him. So that's good. It's also vastly superior to my previous monitor (even if my previous monitor still worked), although it's gonna take a while to get used to the wider screen.

Didn't do too much during my two days without a monitor, although that was where buying CDs really payed off as I could still listen to all my music without a computer, otherwise I might have gone crazy... -er.


Well, that's just great

Posted by Ghost of Romance , in Daily Life Aug 31 2012 · 106 views

So I was just casually browsing the internet when my monitor decided that it had quite enough of me wasting my life away in front of the computer and went into what I believe is known as the 'white screen of death' mode. Well, I'm assuming it's my monitor, since it stays in a white screen even if disconnected from the computer.
So there go my plans of saving up some money, as I'm gonna need a new monitor.


Results Day

Posted by Ghost of Romance , in Daily Life, Education Aug 15 2012 · 108 views

Well, tomorrow is A-Level results day and for the first time, I'm genuinely terrified of results, as these will determine whether I get into university or not. Oh well, nothing I can do about it now.

Not really sure where the summer went. Hardly did anything, and did pretty much nothing of what I was planning to do. Why does that always happen?


The unbearable heat returns

Posted by Ghost of Romance , in Daily Life, Whining Jul 24 2012 · 104 views

Why can't it just be rainy and miserable like England's supposed to be? The heat was bad enough yesterday to get in the way of enjoying The Dark Knight Rises, but today it's just horrible. Won't be able to do anything worthwhile at all.
I really hate the heat >.>


The House Is Mine

Posted by Ghost of Romance , in Daily Life Jul 08 2012 · 86 views

Well, with my dad working in Russia and my mum on holiday, it's gonna be a month or so of just me and the cat. This will be great - a whole month of peace and quiet, which is just what I need ^_^
I shall also take this opportunity to listen to the music my mum hates really loudly while I can.

Now, where's my copy of Reign In Blood?


New Mouse

Mouse, Electronics, Gaming
Well, finally got myself a new PC mouse. Really missed having one with a button for adjusting DPI.

Now if you'll excuse me, I've got some gaming to do ^_^


That's It, All Exams Done

Posted by Ghost of Romance , in Education, Daily Life Jun 19 2012 · 156 views
Exams, Sociology
Had my Sociology exam today and am now official done with exams. Forever. Well, until university.
It went quite well, but the 33 mark question was all kinds of nasty. "Assess whether interpretivist methods are appropriate for sociological research". Eugh, that's the one specific question I was hoping would not come up. Still, I think I did pretty well on it, and the other three questions were very nice, especially since one of the 21 mark questions was on suicide. So hopefully I got that A I need.

And now a whole summer of doing nothing and not caring about anything eduction related at all. Until results day, anyway.
