I wish the Political Science department at Melbourne would ditch its stupid idea of doing two 1-hour lectures a week. History does one 1.5-hour lecture a week, which I love. Back in Queensland, both departments did one 2-hour lecture and that was a bit long, but 1.5 hours works quite well. Having to go in twice is just a pain, especially when it's morning lectures like this upcoming semester.

I know, it's not much to complain about really. But since I've got to the point where I'm just doing PolSci to make up the numbers and my passion is only in History, I feel like whinging about it anyway.

I hate dicking around for a long period of the day only to have to suddenly focus on something in the afternoon.
See, I have always preferred an afternoon exam. Then I can sleep in without worrying about alarms or anything, comfortably eat breakfast/lunch, travel in at my leisure, and not feel rushed before the exam.

In terms of general work, though, I do my best work either very late at night, i.e. 11pm-2am, or in the very early morning, 6-8am.

3 hour graduate seminars were the worst for me. They were only once a week, but they lasted forever, especially the nighttime ones

Yeah, not so much. Plus, I'll have to hear all of my Drama Club friends raving about it for a year, like Hairspray... meh.

Ashley, you not a fan of Batman? Or things that are bound to be awesome?

I freaking love ABBA, and musicals, and pretty men on the screen (Pierce Brosnan! Colin Firth!), and a friend of mine saw a screening last week and said it was fantastic. Yay!

I went to a place for a little while that did two hour lectures.

Not bad in principle, but I wanted to kill myself after the first 15 minutes.

Eek. I haven't even checked to see if we get stuck with that sort of thing in History at the postgrad level. I know some poor undergrads, e.g. various sciences, get stuck with 3 hour sessions here, though. Unlucky bastards.

Also, I didn't know until about two days ago that there's even an X-Files movie coming up. I thought that had long since vanished off the radar.

I tend to do my best work when I'm rushed and/or cornered like a rat.

Believe me - even the old diehard fans were surprised. I didn't believe it would actually happen.

"They're talking about a movie!" Uh-huh.

"There's a script!" Yeah right.

"They're filming in Vancouver!" .... hmmm, really?

"There's a release date!" OMGWTFBBQ!!!!!!
