Well, classes have started and I’m slowly getting back into the swing of things. It should prove to be a much more rewarding semester this time, although I don’t know if I’m hanging around the right crowd these days… but then I guess it’s too early in the piece to be sure.
So far one of the lectures has literally put me to sleep—it is only the first week though. The course itself should become more interesting soon enough.
Finally, it’s important that you’re aware of these random things if you’re not already:
- Some people in the world are amazingly ignorant/rude. No one owes me a prize for my holding the door open for them, but it severely irritates me when they just walk through as if I’m not there—especially after I’ve stood there waiting for them. A mere ‘thanks’ or a nod or a smile would do; surely you can do one of those things even if you are in the middle of a conversation.
- Dislocating your knee is &#@$!%* painful. You should avoid this when possible by not running for trains.
- Participating (passively) in a car accident is majorly inconvenient. When electing your positional preference in a three-car pile-up (i.e. front, middle or back car), don’t choose the middle. Damage to both ends of your car means it’s off the road for twice as long.
- The ability to read other people’s thoughts would be extremely handy and awesome. Someone should teach me how to do it.
