Heyhoo everyone.
*tackles and bear hugs you all*

It's been waaaaaaay too long since got to interact with all of you, and I've missed you all like crazy. However, I have now finished my exams which means *drum roll*

I have now FINISHED MY DEGREE (technically)

I could have applied for graduation at the end of the session (but as I'm on the advanced strand doing my honours thesis is actually part of my degree...although I'm scared silly by that)
One of the worst sessions of uni yet. Teacher from hell who has astronomical expectations of a subject that was half airy-fairy and half details so technical it was screwing with your head. I actually spent the last 14 weeks attempting to chase down what my honours project would be to start it in 2 weeks, but the responses I did get sounded horifically complex and only worthy of real academia working on it. I do have an offer for one thing that sounds desirable...but am waiting for word from supervisors (Don't they realise how utterly nerve-wracking it is for me when there are hey, yes 2 weeks before I am meant to be getting it in gear...then again I'll probably just pick up a somewhat relevant subject for the next 6 months and start next February so I can have my supervisor of choice.

Managed to do my first 7 hour shift a couple of days ago and, jeez, what torture. I don't know how people do it all the time. 4-5 hours of standing at a checkout is ok, any more than that and my ankles start to attack me with sharp stabby pains and my knees fill with fluid and the balls of my feet feel tenderised. I was watching a show on the history of torture yesterday, and some of my symptoms sound pretty similar to the results of some of the best torture techniques. But at least I get money at the end...err...that kinda makes it sound like masochistic prostitution...which TOTALLY WASN'T MY INTENTION.

Anyway...I'll get around to catching up with everyone's most recent posts soon. yes the crazy fly by poster will probably be me I actually really want to play Reppelz, but having my guy sit around for long enought to build his stamina to decent levels is killing me (NB don't EVER randomly install computer games in the middle of your study really doesn't help with that overall theme of stopping procrastination)

I'll also try and post some more interesting things that aren't just me returning from the have basically been my last few posts (Looking at my posting history...I don't think I've done anything new or interesting since last year :S)
To kick off I have soem quiz results...


As a 1930s husband, I am

Take the test!

So...I'm an average 1930s husband. (Answered as know...I actually would ever have a spouse)


As a 1930s wife, I am
Very Poor (Failure)

Take the test!

But am an absolutely abysmal 1930s wife. Which I can totally live with. If I had 1930s wifey type values I'd seriously have to reconsider my take on my personality.

The Caffeine Click Test - How Caffeinated Are You?
Created by OnePlusYou

And this makes my laugh (1, because the test is so hinky and 2, I really don't have that much caffeine. You could almost call my decaffeinated)

Ok, that's enough woobling.
(Yes, I am probably high from end of session and exams...will try for more coherency later)

*luffles you all*
See you on the net.

Hey! I missed you :)

And congratulations on finishing your degree, even if only technically. :D

Wow, honors thesis. You're so cool, arccie. There's really no other word I can describe you with. Except maybe AWESOME. Torture, however, isn't cool. >.< Can't you like, sit down every once in a while?

Oh and, just so you can feel the love, Sunnie made you THIS. :D

Mei's, Sunnie's, Li-chan's, Mishy's, and mine are somewhere in the 12th and 13th pages, if you want to return some lovin' :P

It has been wayy too long. I've missed all my flist so much
Isolated with uni work is not a happy thing.

The honours thesis thing scares the bejeebers out of me...and organising it is like counting sand grains (seemingly futile and endless).
As for work...they give you a 15 minute break for working more than 4 hours, a 1/2 hour break for working more than 5, and a 15min and 1/2 hour break for working more than 6. It really doesn't compute so well. The need to be like Aldi's and have stools or something in the checkout booths.

*gibbers incoherently over that post*
Will make a better attempt at expressing myself about it later...and hopefully track down everyone else's threads to return the love.

Why when you still have no actual obligations, do you have no time for anything?

*uber bear hug*
So nice to 'chat' with you again.

Mei! *hugs*
It's nice to be back.
I'd missed lj, the friends, the atmosphere, and well, everything in between.
I'm...sort of running scared at the moment. I have no idea what to do with a finished degree, and honours too...*shudders*
Will glad to be done with uni...but I'm scared of the big world waiting on the other side of my studies.
What about you?
How many more years of study do you have to complete still?

*huggles, dances and twirls B-kins around*
It is such a relief to have finished this last session. Fingers crossed the marks that come out in 4 days will put paid to my effort.

We will be soon as we manage to come across each other. I have been online. I have just had a million and 1 other things that also needed to be done crop up.

It is very day brightening to hear from you.
Unfortunately I'm back to uni in 2-3 weeks. How long do you have off? (We need to establish a pattern of communication before we get buried once more...)

*bear hugs*

This is a late comment but I want to congratulate you on your success of obtaining a degree! ^^

*hugs* Miss you lots! ^^

There is no late as far as I'm concerned at the moment.
(Otherwise I'd be a very big hypocrite...and I try to only do that every 2nd equinox :P)

It's a big relief. No longer do I have the threats of abject failure hanging over my degree...even if I have picked up another subject to keep me occupied for the next 6 months.
Miss you too.
Time seems to be running away from us.

How are you?

I'm doing grand thank you ^^

Currently job hunting, hope it'll go well. Am planning to work at least 1 or 2 years to save up money and if other opportunity arises in the future, will possible consider them ^^;
