Hardcore NG

My hardcore NG sticker order arrived today! :D Woo! I don't need them all, so if any users in Sweden are interested in buying, I'll sell you all the stickers you need for 10KR a piece. Ok, now I'm off to place expensive stickers on random items in my soon verywell-decorated room...

Hardcore NG

My Universe

I failed it. The first real examination in Japanese. The rerun is on Friday, which means I have only have two days to study for it, which means trouble. No, it doesn't mean trouble because there's only two days left, it means trouble because I have a lesson on Friday in another Japanese course which I can't be absent from or I'll most definitely fail that course instead. So which should I prioritize? Most definitely the one on which I should be rerunning on Friday. See, there is a maximum limit of 4 chances, and I suppose that if I skip chance 2 I'll still have two more to go, which should be plenty. I emailed the teacher and asked how we would be notified about grades/etc a week ago, and still haven't received an answer. I was going to call her yesterday, but was notified that her office hours are between 10 and 11 on Monday. So what should I do? Call her next Monday then and hope for the best.

University never turned out quite the way I pictured it. From the very start of it up until now I've had a much more unserious conception of this place I study in. On the very first day there there had been a double booking for the "big room" and we were forced to cram 70 chairs into a small space at the other end of the building. Since then there have been problems with the movies displayed, more problems, and problems on top of that, all of which I have blogged about earlier. The Japanese Realia course I study (the one that I have a lesson in on Friday) consists of half movies, half lectures, with simple answers after each event that are to be answered. No final exam, nothing. Since there was a slight misunderstanding concerning the schedule at the beginning of this course (my fault entirely) I ended up only doing the Japanese Realia part of Japanese I and not the Language part, which was the bigger part of it. I also had a small Japanese History before 1868 course beside that, and I just needed 7,5 more points to get enough for my study-money after one course had been dropped (believe it or not, here in Sweden we get paid to study). So, I picked up a small course about Dinosaurs. The course consisted of 9 question sheets, which were all very simple, and I've managed to get through them all in less than a full day, total time.

The Japanese History exam didn't go perfectly, but I never really considered failing an option. I've never failed at any tests I've actually studied for before. I've even passed quite a few tests without studying at all, so realizing that I've actually failed was devastating news. To think I'll have to write another eight page essay with the same content isn't a pretty thought. I realize now that the University is a completely different league, in exams, at least. Everything else has progressed just like before, deceivingly easy-peacy, no problems. Lets see how I solve this.

Btw, I wrote this a few days ago but was never even close to posting it on the blog, which is the reason why the days/times/etc are all messed up. I called my teacher two days ago and a date ( Jan 14 ) is set for the 2nd retry. Lots of studying to do until then, but I haven't started working on that yet. Today another catastrophe arose: I overslept. I even set my alarm clock the night before, which I don't usually need to do since I wake up automatically, but not this day, no no. It's the first time I've missed a university lesson due to sleeping disorder, and last, hopefully. I wonder how the day next week when I start at 8 will be (I was supposed to be there at 10 today).

Anyhow, I now have three absences, which is the maximum allowed before I get kicked out. Time to start abusing the alarm clocks snooze function and getting up an hour early, just incase. And I have to eat tons of garlic so I don't get a cold. :P My advice to you: skip university, get a job.

Worms Armageddon Printscreen

Have you ever tried taking a printscreen of your stats in Worms Armageddon? On the PC? I tried it today, and it doesn't work! This is one of the few ( ok, the only one ) game I've tried taking a printscreen of that doesn't turn out right. You get two rectangles combined with a black background instead of the complete windowed superstar kills deaths stat divisions that are supposed to appear. It surprises me that this game, especially when it's such an old game like Worms Armageddon, has the ability of disabling printscreen abilities. O_o Anyhow, just though I'd let you know. Cyber Out.



Parlino is having a small design contest. You might not be interested in the contest, but you¨'ll probably find designing your own character interesting. Design your own. Beware though, it's in Swedish, and if you want to win stuff then you'll have to be in Sweden as well.

Such Is Life

There are two movies on TV today. Both starring Samuel Jackson, both thrillers, both from the 90's. Coincidence? Conspiracy? I don't know. What I do know is that both of them are movies that I want to see, and that they unfortunate run only one hour apart. Which means I can either :

a. ) Watch one hour of the first movie and then watch the other movie

b. ) Watch one hour of the first movie, then spend an hour constantly pending between the two movies as not to miss too much of the plot, and finally watch the end of movie 2 without disturbance.

c. ) Watch movie 1 and only movie 1

d. ) Watch movie 2 and no more than that.

Movie 1 is called Jackie Brown, Movie 2 is called the Negotiator. Since the second one starts an hour later, and I have to be up relatively early tomorrow morning, option c seems like the definite choice, even though it's unfortunate I miss one. For those of you who said "wth" after the very first sentence of this post and continued by saying or thinking "only 2 movies?", I'll have to inform you that the free bundle of channels that we in our house use consist of only 6 channels, none of them specifically movie channels, and we have no intentions of buying more, since, seriously, why? Name one reason anyone would actually need more other than to get unlimited bragging rights.

In other unrelated news I was walking by the under-construction golf course this afternoon and I saw a golf cart, with the key in it, fully functional, and noone within a kilometer radius . . . not that I could see at least. I stood by the car for maybe 5 minutes, pressed the gas pedal a little to see if it actually worked ( it did ), tried to gather courage to take a little test drive. No stealing or anything, just a little fun-riding. Unfortunately for me I didn't, and when I walked past the place three hours later it was gone. So that's that, I missed the chance, if it was one. Broke a mirror later today as well, while trying to remove the frame from around it. Now I hope I don't get 7 years of bad luck! Not that I'm superstitious, but I've never broken a mirror before, this will be interesting. Otherwise it's been a great day. Goodnight peoples!
