- ...Antitrust (the film, of course) is ever so slightly hilarious in that it was supposed to be against Microsoft's monopoly and general misdeeds in creating said monopoly and yet, the hero does all of his hacking on a Mac. Pot, meet kettle. Although, that being said, the ending sequence is awesome.

- Trying to do a marathon of Bones is hard. From what I can remember of last night, there was a university worse than mine about...six episodes ago (my university, despite having a Chancellor who could clearly beat pretty much everyone else's in a guitar battle, was so bad that we ranked lower than Manchester Met. Just saying), Sweets experimented on Booth and Brennan to prove that he's as messed up and in need of colleagues as the rest of them (or he experimented on them because he's secretly Gormogan and his cheerful and overly friendly mask accidentally slipped, showing the amoral sadist underneath. [/conspiracy theory]) and Susie Costello randomly showed up and insisted that she had a very active sex life and was a member of Scotland Yard.

- My voluntary job is going well. The work placement (which I was supposed to start on the third) got delayed by a few weeks, though.
So, I have a job.

I start on Monday. Yay.
- Thank you for the coupon, [livejournal.com profile] sashwizzled, but...um, I don't have a card that allows me to buy things online. Sorry. I appreciate the offer, though.

- Still got coursework. Have been distracted by the shiny that is the Persona 4 kink meme, but am slowly getting through it (the coursework, not the meme).

- Bought Earthshock and Mark of the Rani last week. Have yet to watch either of them, but...you know, Fifth Doctor and Six/Peri = my kind of Doctor Who DVD's, yeah? (Besides, Earthshock was £4 and Mark of the Rani was £9, I couldn't resist). Oh, and apparently Ringpullworld (the Turlough Companion Chronicle) is out now. I did not know this.

- Still kind of sucks in Warrington. One of my best RL friends came over from America this week, but...it's been kind of hostile between us. Not sure why.
...I do not want to get the train to uni on Monday. Fucking Northern Rail/East Midlands Rail/First Transpennine Express

...I have coursework. Lots of coursework. This means that I will be busy for a while. If you see me on MSN/AIM, please talk to me (if you want to, that is) because I'll be grateful for the distraction from the coursework. Even if it's to tell me that I shouldn't be on AIM/MSN because I have coursework, it'll still be doing me a favour.

Paid my library fine off (finally *looks sheepish*). I tend to have huge library fines (I think the largest one I had was about £75, but that was a couple of years ago). This one wasn't quite as huge (it was £60, but the guy at the desk was willing to halve it for me because I was a student and looked desperate). To be fair, I've never lost a book in my life. I just...don't like returning them.
- Feeling better, yay.
- Finished my coursework until December. *waves flag*
- Played Borderlands with Brian. Scorpio + healing + explosive sniping assault rifle = happy!Lucy.
- Started Persona 4. It is awesome for these reasons.

1. Chie fucking Satonaka. She's so fucking awesome it hurts.
2. Yay, the Reaper isn't chasing me around! *cheers*
3. Yosuke's way more cool than Junpei. Even if I cringe at the thought of him on a motorbike.
4. Shadow people. I wish it was in 3. Although, knowing 3, you'd probably get stuck fighting Shadow Akihiko with Aigis and Yukari or something. And he'd be eight levels higher than the entire goddamn party.
5. Nanako! Yay! She's somehow more popular with your friends than you are. And it's hilarious. She also runs the house, despite the fact that she's like...eight.
6. I think of Death Note whenever I play this game. Nanako's Sayu, Dojima's Soichiro, Adachi's Matsuda (although, I've got a bad feeling about him...I don't know), and the main character's a pre-Kira Raito who actually likes his female friends.
7. Yukiko's kind of awesome too. And she heals, which is good because Chie can't and I'd rather have as many people as possible who can heal.
8. You can have a Social Link with a fox. I'm not fucking kidding. It's hilarious.
9. The girl from the Sun social link is adorable, although, not as much as Chihiro from 3. She's also tiny.
10. My fusion fucked up and I ended up with a Persona 3 levels higher than the one I was trying to get. It was kind of awesome. :D
11. The basketcaseball player for the Strength social link is kind of sweet. And I kind of ship him with the football guy (same link, they're pretty much inseparable).
- Concert was good. Missed Question Time. It's okay, the lead singer of Enter Shikari ripped into Nick Griffin instead (and there was much rejoicing). And 103 people stagedived over the barrier (no, I'm not kidding). And I got an awesome hoodie. :D

- Really ill now. Got reading week, so that's okay.
...Lectures are okay.

Description of my lectures goes here *warns for swearing* )

...I didn't get the chance to ask the guy I fancied out. I was going to, but then I found out that he was dating someone else. He'd probably have said no anyway.
Words! meme.

Reply to this meme by yelling "Words!" and I will give you five words that remind me of you. Then post them in your LJ and explain what they mean to you.

Tallulah gave me Hirono, Battle Royale, paganism, Liverpool, and MSN! )
I got my results today.

I know, I totally wasn't expecting them either, but they were apparently online. My friend phoned up and told me about an hour ago (well, okay, when I said told, he asked me what my results were and I told him that I had no idea as Liverpool - Warrington!post < Liverpool - Newcastle!post despite the fact that Warrington's about 150 miles closer and then he told me that they were online) so I went and had a look.

Here we go again with the lj-cut of doom! )
I had an exam today.

At 9:30 in the morning.

At Aintree (the reject university, for some reason -even though my campus is right in the middle of the city centre- do most of their exams at Aintree. This means that I have to get to Lime Street, walk down the road to Central and then take another train. And the trains to Aintree break down ridiculously frequently).

This meant that I had to get up at five in order to get out (because I gave myself extra time in case the train went from Moorfields (which I have absolutely no idea where in Liverpool that is) because I'd heard that the track between Central and Moorfields was being repaired (turns out it was only the Wirral Line, thank god).

But...I went for lunch with one of my friends afterwards, and then after returning to Warrington, I got to see Bekki again (she's been in America for the last two years and she came back for two weeks) and there was hugging and much rejoicing.

The exam itself...I thought it went quite well. Everyone else was complaining about the questions, but I revised different topics to them and I thought that my questions were easy-ish. *shrugs* We'll see.
So, my courses next year are:

Comparative Politics (24 credits, core module for all joint honours History/Politics students)
Democracy and the UK state (24 credits)
Human Rights (12 credits, semester 1 only)
Entertainment, Sentiment and Conflict: Popular Culture c1832-1914 (24 credits)
Nazi Germany: Aspects of the Third Reich (24 credits)
British Newspaper History 1855-1986 (12 credits, semester 2 only)

(Also, the history department are repeating the Stalin Terror module that I studied this year for third year students. Several of my friends are considering taking it and stealing notes off me. I found it hilarious.)

Okay! If I do the RSJ (Reflective Study Journal) report for Political Ideologies tomorrow and some of Saturday, the fieldwork report for Research Methods on the rest of Saturday, Sunday and Monday, the proposal for Research Methods on Tuesday (it's only 1000 words, that should be fine) and the Stalin Terror essay on Wednesday, Thursday and the bit of Friday before I hand everything in, I should be okay. :D

After that, I've got three weeks to do two essays, two exams and then that's year 2 over and done with. :D
I had a panic attack on Wednesday night.

It isn't the first time I've had them, but this one was really bad. Even worse because it was...like, 2 AM and no-one else in my family was awake.

No more Career Planning though. *reassures self* And I handed in my Historians and Language essay (correction, one of my Historians and Language essays -although this essay was less about Historians and Language and more about Politics and Education, but never mind) today before the deadline. Got a Stalin Terror source essay to do for Monday, but I need to take the night off. And it's only 1000 words, so I think I can do that.

Then I have the job study to do for next Friday and then I'm clear for the rest of March.

I need sleep. Desperately.
- I hate Bit Torrent. I've been downloading this thing since Friday and it's still not done yet (Lust In Space: Is Doctor Who Sexist? if you must know).

- Reading week. Yay.

- Less than a week until I'm 20. Yay.

- Coursework on the 27th. Boo. Worse due to the fact that I have absolutely no clue what that lecture's even about (I go in, but I spend most of it asleep due to it being at 9am on a Friday morning).

- I...sort of have an interest in someone (I'm not calling it a crush, because fuck, I'm almost twenty and it makes me sound like I'm twelve) but...we'll see how it goes.
