it looked bigger on tv  
I have only two things to say about starting third year:

1) Everyone is brown. The bastards. Never mind that I hate sun holidays, and that even if I lay on the equator for six years all I'd get would be a melanoma, they're all brown. This is what happens when your course term begins in August. Which is practically a human rights violation in and of itself.

2) In one of the lectures - I think it was on professionalism? whatever - there was a comic of a guy with a broomstick up his ass, and a caption reading We've been getting a lot of these since Harry Potter and Quidditch became popular. All I could think of was that Snape/Firebolt fic - I swear, it's a good thing I wasn't sitting at the front or the lecturer would be wondering why someone was spontaneously dying of the laughter. It's an awful pity, however, that I can't remember the context of this picture oh, FIVE HOURS LATER.

This year is going to be insanely busy. I want cat macros.

Wait ... there was one more thing ... on the tip of my brain ... what was it?

Oh yeah.

On 1) LOL. Poor soul, you deserve to tan. And yes, a course starting in august is one of the more unjust things in the world...

On 2) WTF LMAO. Snape/Firebolt. Wanting to write that anytime soon? XD

Haven't get to use Vista yet...

1) See, I can just smell the sarcasm in your tone. NOBODY UNDERSTANDS MY PAIN.

2) Oh my god, I did not write it. Someone else did!

Consider yourself lucky; it sucks.

NO. JOKE. I am on my second week of courses right now. Whyyy!!! Oh wells. At least I'll be out of here the first week of May. When does your year end?

God, I have no idea. I know we have final exams in May - and instead of a month off beforehand, like the rest of the university, we get ONE WEEK - but when in May I don't know. Probably as close to June as they can shove it, so we get more quality teaching time. Yayes.

Cool icon, btw!

1) Ahh, the life of an innocent high school junior. New term doesn't start for me till the sixth of september. Of course.... I'm aspiring to be a vet. I see august term starts in my future. So, I may not feel your pain now, but I will. Oh, I will.

2)*gigglesnort* You know you read to much fanfiction when... xDDDDD. Why snape/firebolt? Why not someone.... sexier? Like draco? xDDDDD. Sorry, Snape doesn't interest me sexualy AT. ALL. But anyway, THAT must have been an interesting lecture.

I heard that vista sucked. In fact, even before it was even conceived of I knew it would suck. Just... Vista? common xD I have the UK verson of XP. DOnt. Ask.

There's no vetinary courses in my uni, so I can't help you there. Now, if it was dentistry you're after, I could tell you all about their terrible student holidays (compared to their excellent working holidays, that is).

Snape/Firebolt was the only fic I read that was remotely like that situation. H/D shippers aren't that kinky, I guess!

It does suck. They got that right. The guy in PC World said I couldn't buy a new computer without Vista, though. :((

How long have you had Vista? I got it in February and the learning curve was a bit steep. Nothing was where I could find it and I though I was going bald from tugging on my hair in frustration. But now, the only way that they could take it back would be over my dead body. I love Vista, and I really, really love Office 2007.

Oh! No. That's just a colloquial term around here for 'very tanned'. I'd say Indian if I meant Indian. :D

Windows Vista. How does it suck? I've been thinking of getting a new computer because mine keeps making this horrid sound every half hour or so while I'm using it. T__T

I actually wore some above knee length shorts to work and school this weekend/today... and everyone's staring at my legs at how unbelievably WHITE they are. And humongous, I have cankles. :X

It's just, incredibly slow. Loading everything. Turning off. Turning on. It's hard to find the basic stuff. It randomly installs updates and restarts your computer giving you exactly ten seconds to stop it/save your work. I HATES IT PRECIOUS.

It can't be worse than the guys in my class and their carpet-hair legs! lol

I hate tans! I personally am not very keen on going out in the sun myself, but I think they look pretty terrible on people, too. Makes them look constantly dirty.
And then there's the girl (Clare Oliver) who's been on the news lately, dying of melanoma after frequenting a solarium.

Mmm, I can't help but think they look better than pasty white-verging on purple, though. :D

LOVIN' THE MACRO. Hehehe. Is there a website or something?

Everyone is brown.
*snort* Tell me about it. Everyone's browner than me here anyway, and then after summer vacation, I find myself with a dozen Japanese students clustered around me, holding their arms alongside mine, squealing "Kristen-sensei--you so white! Me BLACK!" like it's something new. :/ But the last time I tried to explain skin cancer to one of them, her eyes got wide and I swear to god her chin started wobbling and she said "I...die?!" and I had to backpedal and stammer crap like "No, no no no no no, you're not going to die. Never. Ever. Forget I said anything. There's no such thing as skin cancer. It's a lie made up by the man to keep us down."

Also, um. Hi. So I'm like a lurker/occasional commenter who's going to be friending you like now-ish and thought the best way to work into telling you that was to babble at you.

Oh, Asian skin. Sigh. I reckon that's where that whole alabaster/porcelain trope originated. Unfortunately freckles have never gained the ascendancy they should have done!

Hi back - so terribly, terribly late. But as that's a key feature of my journal/life, you may as well be inducted early, eh? Welcome! ♥

I wasn't going to bother you with my friending your page simply because I liked your fanfiction (they make commenting systems for that) but i read this, and you make me smile.

I do wish I knew the context for the picture in your class too. That's hysterical.

I like making people smile; it is so much preferable to them running screaming in terror and/or pain.

If I couldn't remember it then, on the day of said lecture, it is definitely confined to the mists of time by now...
