Is it too early to want to drop out of University?

It's NYE and I am literally dressed up with no place to go. The Midnight Juggernauts/Cut Copy flyer above my desk is taunting me. Mum's working, everyone's busy and I would head down to the city if it were not for the fact that walking through Noble Park at 1:30AM scares me. Being alone in a crowd beats being alone at home, but yeah...SE suburbs in the morning = not so cool.

This sucks. Even the thought of staying home and watching TDS or House or whatever no longer appeals to me.

Hopefully next year will be more successful on a social front.

Is it just my imagination or does Daft Punk's Around the World make it on to EVERY SINGLE Rage guest programmer's play list? The video clip's cool but the song annoys me.

Anyway, it's nearly 3AM and my sleeping habits are well and truly screwed. So, in order to try and bore myself to sleep, I'm attempting to hit the keys in a way that results in the formation of actual words and not the random assortment of letters my fingers are creating. >.> I'm tired, but I can't bring myself to move the 30cm to my bed.

Went out with some of the gang to see Eragon on Friday. Absolutely horrible. Go see Little Miss Sunshine instead. The acting was crap, and I had no idea what was going on on account of the fact that I was only awake enough to make the occasional sarcastic remark. Apparently the book the film was based on was written by a teenager, but that's not an excuse for plagiarising so many fantasy novels. The only good thing was that I got to spend time with friends, which is becoming a pretty rare occurance these days.

I'm annoyed at myself though, because I thought Quebec were playing at Missing Link at 3 thus rendering me unable to see them. But I was off two hours. >.> I could have made it! I'll just have to catch them at another time. I wish that I wasn't so intimidated by the prospect of having to go out at night alone. I have to grow up sometime, right? I want the security of school back. The prospect of having to assimilate into adulthood terrifies me.

On another musical note (pun not intended), I think it was bad idea to get a record player as an early Christmas. Now I've just got something else to spend all my money on. Went into the city today and spent $35 at Missing Link on the Ampere/Sinaloa split and Orchid's Dance Tonight! Revolution Tomorrow! Both are amazing, although, the latter is a pleasant surprise. I hadn't heard of anything by Sinaloa before, except for the name of the band, and they're really quite awesome. Similar to Saetia, which is never a bad thing. Great lyrics by all three bands too. I need to replenish my fundzzz.

OH! I almost posted this without whining about my lack of cable. Now, I don't watch much TV, but the Colbert Report is being added to the Comedy Channel's 2007 line-up, alongside with the Daily Show. :(! I wish you could just subscribe to one channel. I'm sick of watching clips through websites, and TDS: Global Edition is lame and not enough to satisfy my thirst for satire. I NEED MY DAILY DOSE OF THIS:

Obligatory comment about my education: After a lot of introspective musing, I've decided that Melbourne Uni's the right choice for me, but I probably won't get in. :( I hate these month long waits. Obviously VCAA and VTAC are sadists.

PS: Cheer up Nadia. :) <--- comforting smiley.

Boring post-school stuff. [Dec. 13th, 2006|07:12 pm]

I'm such a snob. >_> Arts at Melbourne Uni has now been moved up to second place, with first place still occupied Media and Communications at Melbourne, which I won't get into, but maybe the fringe will be lowered from 94.35 or something. We'll see. I've heard that it's difficult to get a job with a degree in Journalism from Caulfield, and RMIT seems so...hardcore and rigid, and I don't really like that. :-\ I really like the Political Science course at Melb and according to their website "Graduates of the Bachelor of Arts who have majored in political science are highly sought after by employers and find that they are on the threshold of many interesting career paths." Sounds good. But of course, it's their course, so there might be an element of bias in that statement. Either way, I'm going to Change of Preference Information Day tomorrow, and I'll see how it goes.

I don't feel too special about my ENTER anymore now that I know about 60 people in my year got above 90. Ah well. Good for them. High achievers is going to take so long though. >_> Oh, and Aruna and Ee-Wei both got dux with 99.35. Not surprising, but in regards to Aruna, slightly annoying. She missed so many days of school just to study. Hm. Sacred Heart also completely OWNED Australian History. 18 of us got above 40 including two 50s. That's 18 out of about 36, by the way. How awesome!

In regards to my own scores, Politics was slighlty disappointing, Revs was expected considering my terrible performance on the exam, English was pretty good considering that I only completed about half the exam well, Australian History was good, and Methods! SO HAPPY. 33! I was aiming for 30 and yay. I love that it gets scaled up by 6-7 points. All that coupled with Religion and Society from last year = not such a bad score. I do feel silly for stressing, but maybe this will teach me not to overreact so much. :D

As a reward, Mum bought me a silver necklace that I had my eye on (it's a snake chain with a floating star, like those floating heart ones, but 1000x cooler) and a white chocolate mud cake AAAANNNNND made me sushi and bought wine. :D So exciting.

So yes, congratulations everyone. Everyone's done so well! I love it. Good luck for uni preferences and all that.

Unbelievable. When I saw my ENTER, I screamed and consequently scared my cat. Now she won't come near me.

I have to do a little bit of preference swapping though.

Arts at Melbourne or Journalism at Monash Caulfield?

In all this excitement, I've forgotten that I've only slept two hours. I woke up at 6:50AM. Perfect timing. :|

Ah yes, the time until exam results are released has entered the dreaded realm of single digits.

I forgot to mention that I got my haircut yesterday. I'm still not sure how I feel about it. Eh, it is hair after all. It'll grow back. My fringe is crooked though. :-\ And it was cut by an actual hairdresser. Heh. Here are two shit photos I stuck together in photoshop to form the most myspaceishly lame picture I could. Excuse the stupid face I'm making in the first one and the fact that half my face is cut off. But hey, maybe that's not such a bad thing.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

I look mannish. :(

Also, smoked salmon is the best thing ever.

More useless posts ahoy. [Nov. 29th, 2006|08:36 pm]

[music |Demetri Martin - These Jokes]

I was going to write a post summarising the awesome things that have occurred in the past week or so, but then I spelt great "grate" and came to the conclusion that I'm too sick to think straight, let alone write properly.

Anyway, here's the summarised version of my summary post.

Little Miss Sunshine = awesome. Dwayne and Frank = awesome. Satirical portrayal of child beauty pageants = awesome. Olive = adorable. Nadia calling during an emotional moment in the movie = not so awesome.

The Chaser at Chadstone on the 12th of December = Nadia, we have plans. Unless the depression I am most likely to feel due to exam results renders me unable to go outside.

Cardigans reduced from $329 to $79 = awesome. So soft. So pretty. On a related note, receiving $200 from father for an unknown reason = good. I haven't spoken to him since he left for Poland, but I'm not going to object if he feels the need to throw money at me.

Finally buying an actual copy of Wind in the Wires = yes! I've had it on my computer for ages, but buying CDs gives me a happy fuzzy feeling. Awesome album.

I'm not making sense to myself right now, so I'll elaborate at a later date.
