The Random Musings of an Attention-Seeking Author – 05/03/2010

  1. Lecture @ uni today. Ended early, which was good…but it was raining when we came out. Ugh.
  2. I’m looking for a book called “The Law of Torts” by Balkin and Davis (4th Edition). Does anyone have it and can give / sell to me? I will love you forever.
  3. The weather has been rather odd lately, and it seems to have a vendetta against me. Boiling hot sun, and then rain, does not help when you are wearing jeans.
  4. Homework….nah, I’ll do it later….
  5. Remember that the “World’s Worst” contest is now on! Check it out here.

That’s it from me. Take it away, boys!

University: First Impressions

Hey guys. Short post today, because uni really took it out on me. It was akin to being ambushed and beaten up in a back alley – my brain feels like mush.

I had two Lectures today at the University of Queensland, a Criminology Lecture, and a Law of Torts lecture. Some comments:

  1. Criminology wasn’t bad, though the lecturer (I keep wanting to say “teacher”; force of habit from my high school days…) talked quite fast. It was slow enough for us to hear, but fast enough that when you started writing notes, you looked back up and thought “What did she say?”
  2. Since Criminology technically is an Arts subject, there were plenty of people who where doing psychology. I happened to sit in the very spot where all around me were Hong Kong psychology students. Hmmm…..conspiracy, methinks?
  3. Law of Torts lecture was immense. So much information….if that’s what’s on the first week, what will the rest of the year be like??
  4. Apparently Criminology textbooks like to play hide-and-seek. Went to two different faculty libraries trying to find the elusive textbook……and couldn’t. I had to settle for an earlier edition. But rest assured, I will find it! (Or buy it)
  5. It was drizzling all day. And it was really humid. So, wet on the outside (rain) and wet on the inside (sweat). That’s Brisbane for you. I’m just happy I don’t live in Melbourne.

And I’ll have to do it all again tomorrow. Sigh….
