Nah, it was just slow for a while and I had to restart it. Meh.

I'm tired and exhausted from school. Can't fucking wait till it's over (8 school days left).

I'm counting down until the end of this semester myself. One essay due on the 10th, two more on the 20th, then an exam on the 23rd and that's it. God, 24/06 will be a fantastic day.

Home, and took some of the best photos i think i've taken.

I've also concluded i have no idea what i'm meant to say in my essay that's due tomorrow, so i'll just write some piece of crap that'll do just enough to reach 50% and thus i'll pass the paper.

Awesome.

At the moment, I'm just hoping that my solid knowledge of how to correctly structure an essay will push me over the line into H1 territory even if the content is terrible. One of my tutors told me that only about 10-20% of the essays he marks even state that "this essay will argue that ..." and clearly signpost how the argument will be sustained ("firstly ..., secondly ..., and thirdly ..."), and since it's marked on a bell curve, anybody who does that is highly likely to do well. So as long as my structure's there, I'm hoping I'll get through alright.

That's exactly what i normally do, but this essay isn't answering a bloody question, and thus i have no argument to structure.


Discuss contemporary Radio in New Zealand.





Thank you very fucking much. I'll just hit them with somewhat of a timeline, some facts, how it is now and if i think it's good before a quick look as to how radio in NZ may do in the future and hand it in.

Wow, that's a dreadful topic. You don't even get a choice of topics? For something like that, though, I'd just try to come up with some bollocksy argument like "this essay will argue that contemporary radio in New Zealand is the dying remnant of a medium long since replaced by television".

Very nearly got a photo of a plane yesterday while I was out photographing the XPT arriving in Melbourne. Unfortunately, I'd already put my camera away, so by the time I got it out, I was too late. Fellow Albino Railfan got it, though.

Oh yeah, and from last week ...

I would try that, but none of the facts back that up, listenership is up, ad revenues have never been higher.

Of course, i'm not going to let facts get in the way of what i'm going to write

Yeah, since when did journalism give a damn about the facts?

Though depending on how in a bind I am with an assignment, I'll just line up facts from my sources and figure out some argument that ties them together, regardless of how much I actually agree with it.

And when I'm in Royal Park, I've been taking photos of geology stuff that's up Ali's alley. Bizarro World is here.
