Ugh, yeah, mine's done that to me before. Deleted everything beyond a certain point in the list after an upgrade. Bloody pain, especially as I'm not one to bother with upgrades much. Half the time, when I update, it's because that bloody "an update is available" screen pops up while I'm typing and I accidentally accept it before I even know it's there.

Hey Daniel! (Edit: And Ian.)

I'm sure Ian and I can both rant at you about the bad side of journalism!

Well i just seem to think, and enjoyable is probably a poor choice of words, but I think I'd think its something I'd be better at. Either way, I'm still interested in doing both courses, just gotta pick one.

Hmm, how does that work?, would that mean 7 Years of Uni?, I'm not so sure I could handle Maths, Physics and Chem (which aren't my strongest points...) and then go off and write essays

Interesting. I'm not finding Journalism all that interesting, but I'd relate that to two factors: One, I didn't realise they taught you to be vapid, and two is that I realised last year it isn't what I want to do.

However, since it actually interests you, it sounds like a better fit.

I will say I'm really enjoying the media studies segment of the course.

True, it'd probably be far too much work. All I know is that Arts/Law is 5 years, and pretty intense.

Well I think I'll enjoy it, from what I've read up on the course it sounds interesting. As I'd like to go into, I don't know, maybe sports writing if i chose that course.

While on the other hand, I've been set on doing the Civil Engineering course for a while now, I've had about 15 months now, work experience in that, so yeah I don't know. I'd like to just sort it out!

:gulp: That would be pretty intense. I realize I'm not going to university for a holiday, but some relaxation is required!

Or do journalism and media studies and spend three years and the rest of your life bludging.

Don't worry, History has very few practical applications really!
