Veni

As some of you might have already noticed, I'm back online. Although I will at least try to focus on my studies. Especially since Phonology and Phonetics are hardly my good side... I'm going to die...

I still don't know how long I'm going to stay here. I have no idea about my tuition fees status, I sent a form to the Department for Education and Skills to get a loan to cover it, but I can't find out if it's been covered because the finance office is closed until Thursday.

Haven't met anyone yet... surprised? Remember it's me who you are talking about... it would be a miracle if I found any friends here.

Tomorrows is some freshners fair on which I will go. At least it's not a pub party like everything else (400 pubs? Seriously?). After that I'll probably go shopping for stuff...

I can hear my neighbours having some kind of meeting, music involved, but I just don't know how to approach them or what to say. I hate when people ask about what music I listen to... My answer of 'nothing' is never considered a satisfactory one.

The End is but a Beginning

My last day at work ended. Said goodbye to everyone, and offered a can of beer to everyone. It seems 9% is too much for most people.

I'll have to pack everything tomorrow. And I'm off on Sunday... I wonder how long I will stay there. Depends mostly on my finances, and what's happening to my tuition fees loan. If I won't get it, the only thing remaining is going back here, finding a flat and work until next year, and try again.

I noticed that I constantly make up stuff. I read the Hero System corebook up to page 44, and I have 8 character ideas and 1 campaign. Of course, my recent reading of Promethean also took its toll in this manner, luckily, I was able to participate in one of the SnE contests. It looks like I have a quite high chance of winning, which is strange, as you all know, I suck at writing.

I have still lots to do, and on top of that, I will soon be a student. I hope I'll manage to get a job that won't cause too much time taken away from my studies. I think the worst thing that will happen on the course are going to be grading according to discussion participation, which I suck at.
