Thank the great and benevolent ghost of Cory Bernardi (he’s been dead inside for ages, after all) — exams are finally over! This past — month, I suppose? — has been an orgiastic clustershag of textbooks, past papers and worked examples; the necessary evil of exams making students sweat anxiety and crap fear.
Okay, not all students I suppose. Living with a film student gives one a sense of perspective for what one might call ‘reasonable’ anxiety. Still, I’m at a point in my university career where my exams actually matter for the future, so you’ll hopefully forgive my lull in blogging.
I’ve missed a lot, too! It’s like I get busy and the world goes to hell — oil spills in America, political shenanigans in Australia and an overblown story on resources in Afghanistan (Mineral resources in a war torn nation with no infrastructure or skilled population? Where can I send my cheque!)
Additionally, TAMOz registration opened yesterday — anyone who is interested should keep an eye on registration, as it seems tickets are selling fast. Me and Bellekitten have already registered, which will make a nice end of year break for the both of us.
I’m going to start work maybe tonight already on the blog posts I promised back at the start of the exam period on what it actually is that I study. Alternatively, my housemate is distracting me with Sam Rockwell in Moon, a movie I haven’t seen before and very much want to. So…
I’ll leave you with what might be my favourite quote from the exam period, said in reference to the possibility of Chinese industry capitalising on the surely soon-to-be utopia of Afghanistan:
China is not too far away, and it’s a great big country that needs a whole bunch of stuff.
