Computer Science and the art of procrastination smiley - winkeye

But I took a year out first as I didn't initially want to go to uni cos that's what everyone else expected me to do. But after failing to get a decent job I realised what the wise course was. Luckily, having already got my a-levels I was able to just match my points to the uni and then choose the best one. And my old school helped - mainly I think cos they have delusions of grandeur and don't like it when students don't do the right thing and go to uni smiley - winkeye

Hehe. I left school in 2006, It is now 2009 and I am just starting uni, I think I may have procrastination down to a fine art.

Okay I did Musical theatre madness for a year, then retook some highers so I could apply for uni. Got turned down by the uni's I applied for, applied through clearing for Dundee uni,got accepted, then a week before I moved up here I got an email along the lines of You applied for a place on the primary teaching course, do you want to come down for an interview, So I went and did the interview, the DAY before I was due to move to Dundee I phoned to check if I had a place on the primary teaching course. I hadn't done it.

So I moved up here and proceeded to fail miserably partly because nothing had been put in place beforehand and I wasn't getting the little bit of help I need. At some point just before Christmas a friend asked me to go to the first meeting of the Abertay Psychology society. After christmas I kept going along just gor something to do, and I told some of them I was failing They told me to go to Abertay. So In September, that's whats happening.

I'm not taking the scenic route through life at all.

Now that's a delayed reaction!
Been in a training course all day. Somewhat interesting and a good one to have on my CV. Plus an interesting discussion with the trainer afterwards about how he got into and what his company does and so forth. A possible future avenue to investigate as he said they don't recruit trainers, they recruit techies and then if they want to do training for their area of specialism they go on a 'how to' internal course and off they go.

Was doing the same yesterday but in a rather bad mood - the catering didn't deliver any coffee until half 12 and there are no vending machines in the building (uni library) so I was without coffee for half a day smiley - grr

I suppose this is a delayed response to the delayed response then. . .

Anyway, how be thee, today? Have a look at my most recent journal to see how much of a tube I am smiley - doh.

anyways, my smiley - tea tastes funny, I blame the soy smiley - milk for being weird again!

heya,

heh - I did similar with my last dentists appointment - although I only got the time wrong, not the day!

smiley - tea always tastes funny, but especially so with weird stuff like soy milk in it - you lactose intolerant as well as everything else?

Weirdest cuppa I ever had (well, excluding some of those 'university' type ones smiley - winkeye ) was when I was about 15 or so and my father and I had a long weekend holiday on a canal barge. Cool holiday but my father isn't exactly the domestic type and our first cuppa was made with carnation evaporated milk. Sweet, yes, but, erm, odd...

s'probably why I drink coffee now smiley - smiley

Yes I are lactose intolerant, T'is fun! Have to read the ingredients on everything, which is fun when the ingredients are written in stupidly tiny print. I like smiley - tea and normally have it with soymilk, That's how I know it tastes weird.

I am making more of my costume just now. Have the top and the ears done, just doing the tail just now. T'is fun, although threading needles is a pain in the arse! (Lack of depth perception really not helping)

"threading needles is a pain in the arse!"
An inventive approach to the task but, um, can I suggest you try using your fingers? Might find it a bit easier?
smiley - sorrysmiley - winkeye
And anyway, a tail? I thought the whole point of the cheshire cat is that there was only a head?

I have depth perception probs too - had a cornea transplant which means my eyesight in that eye is somewhat useless - although the peripheral vision still works which is great when something draws my attention on my my left but I have to turn fully to make it out! Human bodies really are quite useless - those intelligent design lot can't have ever looked in a mirror!
