[-] Animal behaviour lecture is an interesting pain. Professor uses oldschool projector slides, so no BlackBoard (easier to revise for exams with BB, given half the exams we're revising for are from first semester). Film on wolf behaviour was cut short because prof. was late getting in due to snow.
[+] Made it to the bank. Change of address: sorted. Savings account: attained. Pin number: have to wait for Mon. for address change to go through, then call & have new pin sent. Will then reset it at an ATM. Money withdrawn: success; now have money to buy food & such.
[+] Worked when I came home, mostly in Lyshia's room. Have a detailed outline done.
[-] Essay may not end up with a lot of references/referenced material depending on how much I research as I write, but I'm not going to be picky. This is my first essay of this type and the researching is different. I'll get the hang of it sometime. Not holding myself to perfection, just my best!
[+] Enjoyed my tea.
[+] Went with Tinboy to Werewolf roleplay, A Legacy of Blood. Tonight's session was fun & frightening. My character ate a spider, rolled over and killed another spider, and ate a third; I killed 3 out of the 5. Got to speak with a Dream Collector Spirit. Experienced a demonic spider-infested zombie and bit off its leg, then arm. Used Crushing Blow on a church pew to make fire to keep spiders away because we were paranoid. :P CJ shot a corpse that was hanging from the ceiling, right in the face. :P We barricaded a door out of paranoia. Tom-the-DM congratulated us on our acts of pure paranoia. Tom & CJ gave me an extra experience point for my defeating the spiders. I said, "But I just stop, dropped & rolled...and ate!" Tom told me that was the best. I gave him an experience point mainly because he kept saying 'And I slap him' after Tinboy had his character babble on. Made jokes about Monty Python and the fish-slapping sketch. We had loads of fun, and I got coffee. :D Yay! I feel like an uber-geek now and I approve.
[-] I am home for essay writing now. Hoping to average at least 200 words an hour to get to the halfway mark. Starting is the hardest. I tend to average more words after I'm into it. But I also have more time tomorrow than I have tonight: 'round 4 hours tonight (or more if I want less sleep, which usually occurs); at least 8 if not more hours tomorrow.
[+] Andrew mentioned he was going to be happy today. I said I probably couldn't given I have an essay and don't generally stay happy for those (although I have once in Uni, a few times in high school). He said to pretend. I am going to try this.

...and now to try to start writing. I will probably put some babble down for my first sentence, then erase it after. Looks good to have one sentence down.
Current Mood: geekyGeeky.

Babble is a good way to start.

Sending hugs.

I started with a sentence something like: "If I were a babblefish, I would probably eat a blueberry and be happy."

My fake conclusion was something like: "The blueberry would probably give me indigestion like raspberries do; after the laxatives my excrement would be the answers to Life, the Universe and Why You Are Writing This Essay."

I was obviously in a very strange mood. :P

Patricia McConnell wrote in her book that if you hold a pencil in your teeth towards the back of your mouth you'll feel a little happier because that's the position a smile is in. Interesting implications on if the emotion came before the facial expression or vice versa. So trying to be happy might work a little. Smiles.

I tried that. If it didn't imitate the position of a smile, it at least made me laugh!

Giggles. I think she says something very similar about feeling silly and laughing.

I think it's fun to do.

Mmm, essays >.<
Hateful things lol. Babble is a good starting point though. I babble A LOT. I have a lecturer who uses OP slides! lol.
How many eams have you got? I'm one down 1 to go!
Good luck :]

Wafflinggggg. :P I try to avoid it, but it's kind of inevitable with me. I'm a writer. We tend to waffle!

I don't have any exams for a while. We tend to get more essays, assessments, reports, bla bla bla. Then occasionally a test (usually only one in a course, if at all) but a big whopping exam in the summer semester. Do you end up with exams that are worth up to 80% in the end of the year?

Thanks! Good luck with your last exam! ♥

Animal Behavior hahaha! That brought up some memories for me... what is your degree in? I was a bio major:)

I'm in Ecology & Conservation; I take a lot of courses with the bio majors. :) I do love biology!

I hate the bank. They are a pain. After a month of not using my card, I forgot my pin and blocked my card. Fail.

Good luck with the essay!

The bank is an uber pain and I do not appreciate it. :X >:[ And that is exactly what I did. Or what I had thought I did. Turns out I DID remember my correct pin, it just didn't seem to work. So I don't know what was up with that. I checked online and I wasn't missing any money or anything.

Thanks! That one's done now. Noooow I gotta start over for another essay due for this Friday. D:
