I’ve spent more time playing Twilight Princess today than I’ve spent in university all week. It’s the first week of term. Go figure.
Why are UEA’s History modules so poorly thought out and taught, and yet AMS’s are wonderfully organised and engaging? Thank fuck I’m only taking one HIS module this semester. The lectures and seminars just feel like Sixth Form classes, as opposed to the challenging and engaging way AMS modules are taught, with a two hour seminar a week. I end up learning infinitely more in the...

We had to do a “historical figure you’d like to have dinner with” yesterday - I said Evelyn Waugh and Aristophanes and everyone just looked at me blankly. Problem is, I drink too...
I do not feel awake and refreshed and I do not want a two hour introductory seminar about the Cold War. If we have to do a little ~tell us about yourself~ thing I might just lay my head on the desk and begin to weep.
I have just ordered two pizzas for myself (I didn’t see the point in rejecting the second, free pizza). Determined to just eat off this hangover.

urbandynamics replied to your post: I don’t even have to apply for my visa until… When I applied for my UK visa is costs $485 dollars. >.< THAT was balls. It’s awful! Admittedly $485 is worse, though I’m yet to factor in travel costs, left luggage … Was your visa interview okay? I’d imagine the British and US embassies are pretty similar in this area.
I don’t even have to apply for my visa until sometime around May, but it’s already driving me mad. And application fee of $140, followed by a SEVIS fee of around $200, plus £14.50 for the embassy’s courier service, all on top of booking the appointment on a line that costs £1.20 per minute. Balls to all this.
