It's been years since I was studying. And a good chunk of that time has been spent here...

Yeah, point taken.

Um, yeah... not really

I guess molluscs aren't my thing, especially when I was hoping for dinosaurs. Not much choice in projects, sadly. I spent most of my first year trying to ingest three very large textbooks on malacology, and panicking.
I was more thinking about resulting content, not the actual process of doing it.

I can imagine it must be tedious. Especially if it's not your thing. I'm really worried I'm going to end up bombing some of my stuff this year, just because I'm not passionate about it. And if I'm not passionate about it, my mind will wander. I wrote pages of preliminary notes for my Honours thesis last year when I was meant to be working on some Argentine political history that I just couldn't give a shit about.

Come on, New Zealand's not that far away, there should be courses on its history! There are two courses on Irish history, for fuck's sake!

Quote:
I read a little bit about the Islands... apparently the original inhabitants weren't technically Maori, or else they'd been isolated for so long that things had changed... and apparently the Maoris went with the white settlers in ships and invaded the place.
The only other historical thing I can remember is that the first white guy on a ship to spot the islands was called Allison... whether that was his first or last name I don't know.
Yeah, I believe the original inhabitants were originally Maori, but were isolated for centuries. Incidentally, all of this has led to a widely believed but thoroughly untrue myth that New Zealand used to be populated by a race of people called the Moriori who the Maori cannibalised. This myth is generally mobilised by people who want to delegitimise Maori land claims.

And I imagine the guy's first name was Allison, since it used to be a male first name. I know one of the Chief Mechanical Engineers of the New Zealand Railways in the 19th century had the first name of Allison.

Oh yeah, the scope of the project itself was interesting from a theoretical point of view, and it was quite an important project, in that not very much is/was known about southern-hemisphere molluscs from that time period. (Which, incidentally, didn't make me feel any better when I had to tell my supervisors I couldn't do it.)

But it's not dinosaurs.

Yeah, I read that it used to be a guy's name. I've also seen it as a surname, though...

Moriori, that was it....

Seeya Cin!

I might head off for a bit too... time to "simulate love-making by beating a piece of wood with a metal wire on which it vibrates."

It seems not a lot is known on anything Southern Hemispherean really. Damn Northern Hemisphereans and their Northern Hemispherecentrism. Especially Anglocentrism and Americentrism.
