I think an update on my life is long overdue because I don't even remember the last time I posted here. It's not really an OMGSTILLALIVE post because lol I'm stuck with my uni's crappy wifi rn that loads one page every 10 minutes, I'm supposed to be studying but I have no lessons and no willpower to do anything even remotely productive, think of it as me rising from the grave as an unquiet spirit to bother you with my incoherent wall of text. Or whatever.

♠ My course load this semester is... eh. I've had worse, but the timetable itself sucks. I get home at 9PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays because I have lots of free periods. And I told myself I'd be good and use this time to study, but who am I kidding, I always bring my laptop on Tuesdays and Thursdays. So it's like 40% study, 60% try to connect to the internets and waste time because I'm tired. And despite being tired I just can't go to sleep before midnight, and even when I do I end up tossing and turning in my bed until almost 2am. IDK why, I'm like BODY I WENT TO SLEEP EARLY FOR YOUR SAKE SO FALL ASLEEP ALREADY and my body's like LOL NOPE and my brain's like WOULD YOU LIKE ME TO REMIND YOU OF YOUR LIFE AND YOUR FUTURE SO YOU CAN WORRY AND NOT RELAX EVEN ONE BIT and then I'm dead in the morning. Though, afternoon naps? Feasible. Oversleeping? Hell yes. I just can't sleep when I should.

♠ The courses themselves would be interesting, if not for the teachers. I have functional analysis and geometry with two professors I already know from first year. They're not bad, but they talk too quickly and write things messily and I have a hard time keeping track of what's happening. I've been trying to keep up with at least geometry, but for every hour of lesson I'd need two hours to understand my scribbles. Most likely I'll end up studying on the online pdfs, which look neat and ordered but aren't as in-depth as the lessons. Then I've got yet another course with the same dumb professor that drove me crazy last semester because she talks slooow and dumbs down everything to high school level. Yeah, there's this trend of either too easy or too hard, idk. But I like the subject. I think from next week I'm going to skip every other lecture because the dumb is killing me. Plus I have the course that's crazy late in the evening and I can't even skip because attendance is mandatory, but it's game theory and I love it. The only problem is that it's for all students, not just mathematicians, so everything's dumbed down and we waste forever on stuff like DO YOU KNOW HOW TO CALCULATE THE AVERAGE BETWEEN TWO NUMBERS? DO YOU KNOW HOW TO CALCULATE A WEIGHTED AVERAGE? and blah. This scary amount of maths drove away most non-mathematicians anyway, so last week the level improved a bit. Here's to hoping it'll get even more interesting. Because rn I've been entertaining myself by thinking up elaborate fandom scenarios for all the examples.

♠ THERE WAS THIS ONE EXAMPLE CALLED THE BATTLE OF THE SEXES. I TOTALLY RENAMED IT AS THE BATTLE OF THE REMOTE CONTROL BECAUSE ALL OF THIS PROFESSOR'S EXAMPLES ARE SEXIST AS FUCK, SHE EVEN COMMENTED ON IT AND I WAS LIKE "Y U NO FIX THIS" BUT APPARENTLY LOL NO, WE NEED TO HAVE THE BOY WHO WANTS TO GO TO A FOOTBALL MATCH AND THE GIRL WHO WANTS TO GO TO THE CINEMA TO WATCH SOME ROMANTIC CRAP. SO I CHANGED IT TO CAP WANTS TO WATCH CSI AND IRON MAN WANTS TO WATCH GREY'S WHICH IS 1) CANON, 2) WAY MORE AWESOME, 3) IT WAS 7PM AND MY SANITY WAS GONE. MY NOTES FOR THIS COURSE = FOREVER THE BEST.

♠ SHE DIDN'T TELL US THE STORY OF THE PRISONER'S DILEMMA BECAUSE EVERYONE KNOWS IT AND IT'S EVEN IN MOVIES AND TV SHOWS AND STUFF. :| I AM DISAPPOINT ALSO BECAUSE IN MOVIES AND TV SHOWS PEOPLE WHO TEACH GAME THEORY ARE MORE AWESOME THAN HER. HOLLYWOOD LIED TO ME. SO I DECIDED THAT THE PRISONER'S DILEMMA IS THE STORY OF BELLE AND RUMPELSTILTSKIN IN OUAT. IT ENDS BAD BECAUSE IT'S A NASH EQUILIBRIUM LOL IT COULDN'T HAVE GONE ANY OTHER WAY BECAUSE RUMPLY IS SMART. BEST NOTES EVER, I TELL YOU.

♠ Aside from my very exciting courses, my life is... er... non-existent? I just don't have time to do anything, it seems. It's my birthday in one week though, maybe I could muster some strength and guilt-trip my sister into taking me shopping because I haaate shopping and I'll never go on my own but I really need a new pair of jeans. And shoes because I'm still pretending that it's winter but really it's not but ugh new shoes are the worst. Can I be 4yo again and have my mum do all my shopping for me?

So, by the way, I typed this before lunch and had to wait to post because did I mention that the wifi here sucks. And now I have to wait until 5pm to go to lesson and turn game theory into epic adventures of fictional characters. Woe.
