First few days of work were awesome and full of papery goodness! I feel that at least some of it has gone in, hopefully! Now to start my first actual working week of the summer. I’m gonna make me some stimli!
New Star Trek film and some wine tonight, I almost feel cultured…almost (dons sunglasses in preparation for lens flare)
Meh. Short post…
Exams are over! How I’ve waited for this day! Now to remember what I did before revision took over my life…was it something to do with genes/children/pop psych? No…I would hope not.
So currently having a relaxing bank holiday, doing exactly nothing. I may paint my nails while watching some junk films, but that is as much as I intend to do today. Anyway, I have to be up early tomorrow for my induction! w00t! I get to get a new staff card with the same details as the one I just handed in, hopefully not with the same ‘just dug up’ picture, but I expect it will be. At least I can scare small children with it I suppose. I get to have an induction around the department tomorrow, which should be short seeing as I spend a lot of time in there already. I’m really looking forward to working in the psych department, I owe many thanks/favours/drinks for the opportunity! Unfortunately I have to share an office with a certain Dr.Godwin. Tsch, there’s always a down side!
I love my HTC Desire. It does anything I could want in a phone. Plus this whole app stuff is awesome. I am extra happy about apps because I’ve always had a crappy phone that can’t even MMS, never mind being able to install programs onto it! I may do a app post at a later date. In phone game app blah and to continue my point and click game obsession, Hayward found me a pretty cool game called Mystique. The first part is a “escape from a locked room” game and is free. It was actually really fun. Not only does it make my point-and-click-brain-centre happy, it is set in a very dark/gothic/mental hospital setting. Complete with eerie noises! I have paid for the next two games/parts, the second I have completed and was a lot of fun, with a scary child to follow and the only point was to get an elevator working. Sounds crap, but was great, but no spoilers here. The game was difficult enough to keep me happy, but not stupidly hard in a “you must click exactly on a pixel, for no real reason” to progress. Just nice logical problems. I’ve just started the third one, with is a lot longer than the other two apparently and they have improved the eerie noises greatly. It’s now really creepy to play in the dark with the random heavy breathing and doors slamming behind you sounds and the whispers of doom! It’s truly awesome! <3 Hayward for finding it.
Sadly I am stress-filled. It is the last two weeks before exams. I’m concerned, yet I can’t wait for them to be over. I’m more concerned about a rather weird qualitative report I have to write up this week. Showing our own opinions and values, but written in the third person. Should be interesting…To make it worse the topic is on school era sex and relationship education. I dunno…maybe I’ll get into it as I write it, I just prefer stats.
In good news I finally retrieved Zombieland from the royal mail delivery centre of d00m. I will be cramming random psychological facts into my brain and following this with watching zombie brains getting ker-splatted. Although somehow that sneaky postman managed to put a red card of d00m through he door when I was actually home. So another trip to the ghetto where the delivery centre is located is called for. The journey there is fun, passing signs on lampposts wanted witnesses for a murder nearby. The strange people who just stand outside their houses…for no discernible reason other than it’s fun to stand outside. The way people have small bonfires…on the pavement (my personal favourite) and lastly that we have to walk over the grotty bridge where the river is just mud and rotten sunken boats and all you can see is mud, traffic and rusted metal. I live in a classy place. I must take pictures next time, now I have an uber phone! Blah, anyway, back to work.
After a week of craptastic news and being thieved from, I have finally had a good day! New phones arrived this morning, HTC Desire. A massive improvement on my previous phone, which was only, well…a phone. This one is all shiny and covered in my sticky finger prints! Plus it has all the geeky gadgets I could ever want. Now I need to find reasons to use them.
I ordered Zombieland dvd, hoping it will arrive tomorrow. It’s one of the few films I’ve seen at the cinema I want to see again. Who can go wrong with zombies?
I must revise…but I can always find better things to do. I made a Ziggy card for my mum’s birthday! He is such a flirt cat.
Last night of work in the library! Scary! It’s such a nice sunny day too, not a bad day. Really doesn’t feel like I’ve quit just yet, still regretting it. I’ll miss my crumby pay days. When I see how busy the library is in exam time I’ll be glad I’m not here anymore. Alas, for now I will just worry about how I threw a nice easy job/money away! It would have had a serious inpact on my grades this semester though, no reading week, catch up from all the lectures I’ve missed due to working the night before lectures all year, those final assignments and the four weeks of new stuff before the exams. I wouldn’t of stood a chance. Dammit, I want my reading week back!
Still being throttled by this personality assignment, I’ve not had chance to write it up at work, it’s been surprisingly busy in the library concidering it is still the easter break. I have all my research at least and a draft sorted out, it’s just the arduous task of writing it…preferably in some sort of formal English, not my draft English concisting of “this dude thinks this other dude is an idiot and says so.” Fun timez.
The security guard is helping brush up my french, so far I’ve remember how to ask for the train station and “sun good”! Oh, and a vague memory of how to ask if I can take my blazer off (from school, not for any weird purposes). I could survive in France with that, especially if I wanted to be at a train station, while the sun was hot and while I am in need of removing a blazer!
In a cute tone – I didn’t want to leave the house today. A certain little kitteh was being too cute and I felt so bad to leave him alone! Though I wasn’t too pleased after he rubbed around my legs while I was wearing black tights…now with added white cat hair! ^.^
So very relaxed and feeling good. My sleeping patterns are back where I feel most alive, I still have nothing to do, bar whatever I want. It’s certainly been awhile. Plus still six days till work and then they are my last four shifts! Happy happy joy?
New Doctor Who…I approve. I have avoided watching it for awhile due to my hatred of annoying wenches and people who apologise too much. I have to say I actually liked the new episode and I hope Moffat keeps it interesting. I approve of Mr Smith and his tweed-ness and his new wench isn’t annoying, always a positive point! Can’t wait for the angels (from Blink) episode.
Tonight, new Jonathan Creek! I have been re-watching them all lately so I’m quite excited for the new one. In a sad geeky way ofc. Seeing as I’m watching all the Star Trek films at the moment as well, it’s pretty obvious I’m geeking it up. I also bought a season of Ducktales! It’s fantastic, I wish I had more old cartoons.
I’ve been faffing with the new joys of CS4, it’s pretty damn clever when comparing it to the 7 I learnt on. Glowing orbs that would of taken 5+ layers to look 3D can be sorted in 2+ layers due to the new 3D tab (see below). I’m still playing with it, but it can do so much, I’ve barely made anything as I just want to faff with all the options more!
A shiny orb thing. Only four layers, background, the orb, highlight and shadow. The orb is made using the new 3D stuff. It basically throws you a 3D geometric shape and you have all the light sources and stuff already there, it’s just a case of fiddling with all the options.
It’s going to be horrible when I have to finish that horrible essay and start revision for exams, I like my life of being a bum.
All “To do” assignments are done! Till next month anyway. Now the Easter holidays have started, yet I have no idea what to do with myself. Hmm…I got nothing. I’ll start small… shower and off out in search of dinner, that’s good right? It’s interesting, a fun holiday pastime? I’ll work on it.
