I'm not that happy but I'm not that annoyed either, apart from Geography. I would gladly move it to Friday. For most subjects, we need to know just what we've done this term, but for Geography, it's a whole semester's work and the more time I have to study, the better. I'd also say I'd like to swap Maths C and German, but I really don't think it's going to make much of a difference. I also prefer afternoon exams over those in the morning. Maths B before Maths C would probably work better too. Some of the integration stuff we've done in C builds on B, so the format of this timetable makes it feel like we're working backwards. However, it's rare for C to build on B and that's only a small part of what we need to know, so oh well.
I've got that much to remember it's not funny. There should be a sign: "André Axver, welcome to your nightmare weekend of study. This is the second in a three part series."
Unlike last weekend, when I got pathetically little done, I'm going to try to motivate myself and make real progress this time. I'm not going to make a list of what I have to do because then all I'll do on Sunday night is look at it and notice how little of it I've done. I really, really hope I get a stack of stuff done this weekend because I need to. I just don't care enough and don't have the motivation. While I'd love to do well, if I stuff up I can just take some different course in university and then change into what I want to do. It's so easy to work the system.
I tried to explain that to Chantelle yesterday afternoon, and it's interesting to see when someone totally cannot comprehend another's logic. I was explaining that I could be topping all my subjects but I just don't care. I would rather do something I enjoy doing than spend hours working on schoolwork. She just didn't get it. And few people can understand why I'm not going to the formal. Few meaning none. NEWSFLASH: THE FORMAL IS A WASTE OF TIME. I don't want to eat an over-priced meal with a grade I don't like, then go dance (which I hate doing) to crappy music. When you look at it that way, it's a total waste of four and a half hours, not to mention a stack of cash. I'd most likely end up hiding in the corner anyway. I don't see why people get so excited over the formal. It's not as if it means anything or serves any sort of purpose. Oh, well I suppose if you plan on losing your virginity then it serves a purpose, because it provides reason to have afterparties, but I needn't speak my opinion on people like that because by now I'm sure everyone knows that I think they're stupid bloody twits.
As a reminder to myself, I need these U2 gigs;
- 31 July 1993, Stockholm
- 31 July 2001, Arnhem
I also need a non-MP3 version of 26 November 1997, Atlanta because this concert plain rocks and I hate the stupid MP3s I have of it. WHO IN THE WORLD RELEASES SUCH INFERIOR MP3S WITH CLICKS BETWEEN TRACKS? Hm, anyhow. I've just been listening through my playlist and it's fascinating all the cool stuff I've found. 3 February 1980, Tullamore is such a fun gig, and quite frankly, very little beats stuff from the 1987 Joshua Tree Tour. Streets is the most awesome opener of all time, end of story. The following has been officially determined;
U2 concert opener: Where The Streets Have No Name.
U2 main set closer: God Part II
U2 concert closer: 40
That's the way typical concerts should be. Yes. I'd like to see God Part II played a few more times. The Lovetown tour just wasn't enough. Then again, it got played thirty-five times, which is twenty-six more times than Hawkmoon 269, the best song from Rattle And Hum besides Heartland. And Heartland I consider to be from JT. That reminds me ...
