Oh yeah, not all my memories of high school are bad, but on the whole it was a pretty shit experience and a waste of time. Not even university is tremendously fulfilling but it's something of an improvement.

Heh, exactly. And I wouldn't be bitching to you about how shit Mr Whoever was! It wouldn't make any sense. But if one of the guys from high school calls up, then it's a logical thing to come up. And since we tend to agree that high school was on the whole pretty bad, then on the whole our discussion of it will inevitably be framed in negative terms.

i know what you mean. to me, coll-ehh, university is the same way. i attend because i have to. you can't get a decent job with just a high school diploma. i certainly don't want to have this job forever!

and i think talking about bad things that happened in life is therapeutic. it's not good to keep all that stuff bottled inside. now, people who just dwell on negatives and shit all the time, that's not healthy either.

So let me get this straight, Ax is a bit of a night owl?

I have a friend who always dwells. She's had it rough but admittedly she's brought a lot of it on herself. She chooses to work two days a week and live in a tiny flat in a not so great part of town, yet she's always complaining about how she barely manages to get by. I've tried telling her if she betters her situation she could improve her conditions but she refuses to so I say "oh well".

I need coffee. I look like shit, have no coffee in the house, so I might be forced to run to the drive through in a few.

Btw, anyone considering seeing the Happening DON'T. It was so bad it was comical...

My main problem with university is that people kept trying to tell me how much I'd love it, how intellectually stimulating it would be, and so on ... and it's just not. I shouldn't have had expectations. But too much of the time, I feel like I'm not even trying. I hope Honours and postgrad will be different, but I'm not entirely getting my hopes up.

Yeah, no need to dwell on things all the bloody time. That's pointless. At least learn from something if you must dwell on it.

Put it this way: I consider 1:30am early. Though 3:30am is late.

Another person saying that! It's gotten so many terrible reviews that I now feel like I need to see it!

Yeah, and I really just don't feel challenged by the curriculum. Every course seems to fit the template. If you work out how to succeed with the template, you're good and don't really need to engage your brain. You just have to slog through lots of repetitive bullshit.

Cool. Any preliminary thoughts?
