Wow...sounds great! Pity they don't offer study's like that here in Holland... But I can imagine it's difficult.

Erm...maybe later...in a while ;) It's only 11.24 here now. Actually, 10.24 because clock has moved up one hour. I'm very good at procrastinating :angel:

Well it's getting hotter each year here... And as I'm not really used to it, I pretty much perish ;) Last years it has reached 34C. That's pretty hot for this place.
But I wouldn't last a day in Australia.

Still surviving Uni??

I had a most memorable day today. Last week, my phone fell into a crack in a classroom. And there was no way to get it out. Even technical staff weren't able to get it out.
Today, I did one last desperate attempt and :banana: I succeeded!! With pincers and a lot of acrobatic work, I got it out at the last attempt :)

So beware of your phones when there are cracks somewhere close :p

Princess Sarah.
Mar 30th, 2006, 06:54 AM

I don't know what the academic schedule is in Australia,
but we have about 5 weeks left in the semester here in the
U.S. This is the hardest time.

I just have to try to get through each day; if I think of
the rest of the semester, and all the work that needs to be
done, I just get overwhelmed. OK, I can't even stand to write
about it! Time to get some tea and get to work!

Daylight saving! I do like the fact that it doesn't get dark so quickly anymore at night. But boy, it's good that I never travel outside my timezone, as the trouble I have from this one hour is pathetic :lol: ;)

It's really dark by six here it's scary in the middle of winter when it's dark at like 4

myxomatosis
Apr 4th, 2006, 05:39 AM
I hate when it gets dark by 4-4:30, it makes it feel so late in the day. When it's 6pm it feels like it's 9 pm. Summer is just so much cooler than winter overall though, and not just because it stays light waaay later. Canadian winters are the devil.

The farthest north I've lived was Michigan (U.S.) I moved there in the
summer, and I was so freaked out that it was light until 10pm.

Then, in the winter, it wasn't the cold that got me, but the fact
that we had about 45 days in a row without seeing the sun
(because of cloud cover.) I got so depressed. Cold, I don't mind
so much (but that's easy for me to say now that I live in
California.)

Meeek--I rooted for Ljubicic (sad of me to have dropped
that "j" before--I'll blame it on daylight savings time)
but it was not to be. Federer always seems to have
one more gear.

Oh I had the same experience having to take French all through school. The whole French as a second language system here is pure crap. We just learned the same grammar points over and over, year after year. It was really frustrating and we learned next to nothing. It really turned me off the French language, unfortunately (thus as a sucker for punishment I turned to Russian and German instead).

By the way, your Dinara blog is really terrific. Thanks a bunch for all the work you put into it. :yeah:

A lot of Canadians sound like Americans, with the notable exception of people from the East Coast (especially Newfoundland). A lot of more working-class Canadians do have something of a distinct accent though.

Film and history blows...i'd like to add i don't care about surrealism..it made no sense and wasn't meant to..it was meant to reflect the attitude prevailant between the wars and was the only movement to span the distance between them (for someone who doesn't care about it i sure know a bit...)

I can't study and if they don't ask about the perils of modernity i am fucked and will have to revert to bullshitting at length about how a film that doesn't even depict or mention war relates to the issue of war!

yep thats exactly the case..although the exam wasn't too bad i managed to write 16 pages, about what...i'm not to sure....

Yeah psych 101 does screw over a lot of people...i'm glad i didn't do it, i did sociology instead which is wannabe psychology...i really couldn't care less about society's problems (i know it sounds so bad) i have enough of my own!

I once liked him (maybe it was during Davis cup) but now the way that he and hios talentless soap star wife are shamelessly brandishing their poor child around to anyone who will pay a dollar, like a monkey at the zoo is discusting!

so i guess no not particularly. I got his autograph though, and hers lol! I might try and sell them on ebay.

It's the exact same here in Canada. Most people don't consider themselves Canadian, even if they were born here. When I tell people I have British citizenship but was born in Canada, they always consider me to be a Brit. But whenever I go to England to visit family, I just feel like a tourist. I tell people I'm a Canadian and that is that.
My boyfriend was born in Canada, has no interest in going to Nigeria (his family is going this summer but he's staying home), but considers himself a Nigerian over a Canadian.
I just don't get it. :rolleyes:

Yeah i think if i went to Canada it would be the same as living here. Coz yeah it's basically the same here. I know i don't get it either, i was born here and i feel like i don't even belong!

I was supposed to see fireworks tonight because it's Canada Day. But it was raining so I watched a crappy movie instead.

I can't wait til I go back to school. I'm so bored at home. My friends here suck. I just want to get drunk but it would be sad if I did it on my own. Plus that would probably make me some sort of alcoholic.

I got 104% last year on a midterm. It was multiple choice, intro. to Russian culture though, so it was really easy for me.

Aug 6th, 2006, 05:43 AM
104% wow u rock!

i haven't kicked ass like that since 1st yr now i'm lucky to get above 65% :)

nah trying to write an essay but i don't know how to start it, plus i've basically stopped putting any effort into studying my languages!

Aug 7th, 2006, 12:57 PM
No, like I said, the 104 wasn't fair. It was a class for people who didn't know anything about Russia going in so I had somewhat of an advantage ;)
Hope you got the essay written!

I'm going to the Rogers Cup in Toronto today! Whee!

perhaps we should attempt some sort of hostile take over and the Dinara Forum and be a rogue state where we wreak havoc and talk about Dinara of course :angel:

Lol i have my library card and i don't owe too much in fines ....yet, they dont let u borrow when u get to 25 i'm still on 18...working my way up lol!

Nah at our uni u go into the library and hide ur books soo no one else can borrow them lol. I havent done it yet because ive been quite fortunate and its happened to me and it really sucks.

However yesturday i spent like 15 dollars on photocoping...talk about breaking copyright laws...

You mean the whole forum, or this particular thread?

I used to post here more, but sometimes I feel when I post,
all I get back is resounding silence (like when I posted
the questionnaire. I was going to post the note Ms.
Safina enclosed, but after hearing nothing from anyone,
I kind of got the feeling no one believed it was real, so I
didn't post it.) It's kind of strange; for example, I
get more responses when I post to the forums of players
I'm not big fans of!

I don't know, maybe we should try to be more friendly to
people who do post? Give them reputation and all? Be astoundingly
extroverted? (I understand what you mean though; I check
the forum daily, and often we post nothing.)

The whole fan blog thing seems like a big failure. I'm glad it got
us the forum, but no one reads the blog, and most people seemed
annoyed by it, so I stopped posting there.

I was going to post in here (this thread) once before way back ages ago when you were all talking about uni & what you study but then I read someone say people who do/did psych were wierd so I was like well I don't think I'll post that I did a bachelor of psych then:o & never really came back in this thread. So I don't want you to take this the wrong way but I never realy felt welcome to post here (this thread) cause I felt like I'd be butting into someone else's conversation:o I have been posting in the summer season thread & I posted in Fed Cup.

I study Russian at school and I'm not at all Slavic so I'm about as weird as they come in terms of that. To be honest I had to drop my Psych 101 class because I sucked at it so much. So maybe I called psych people weird because I'm just bitter now. :lol:

And if it feels like this is a private conversation between Sarah and I, it's because we're the only ones who post in here. Meeek used to, but she hasn't been around in ages (I don't know where she went?) I like that people post in the Dinara Cheering Thread, but what's the point in having a separate forum for her then, if nobody is going to post in it?

Oh Naomi i'm sorry if u felt unwelcome in here but seriously u are and so is everyone else. And i think it was me who said psych students were weird (i'm sorry-its just a girl i know who does it is strange, but i shouldn't generalise.)

And as Laura says it does feel like a private conversation in here but the thing is no one was posting and it wasn't like we would have told u to buzz off - Laura might :p only joking.

So, this is kind of off-topic, but not really. I just got
my Dinara Safina coffee mug. Heh. I have been playing
on various photo internet sites since I got my new camera
(the one I used at Eastbourne, Wimbledon, Carlsbad, and
Carson). Anyway, I should have figured this out before,
but I didn't: you can make custom coffee mugs!

I was still using a Sun Microsystems Java cup from my
graduate school days (to give you a hint how long ago
that was: Ms. Sabatini was still playing then), and I finally
decided I needed new coffee cups. Long story short,
I saw an ad from one of my photo internet sites, decided
to make a set of tennis coffee mugs, and I made one of
them from a photo of Dinara from Carlsbad (one of the ones
I took of her on the practice court, looking all pensive at
her strings--you know the pose.)

It turned out well. I'm going to keep that one at home,
and take my Kuznetsova mug to work. At least for now.
Maybe I'll rotate them!

I first saw Lucie at Gold Coast this year & became an instant fan. I was shocked how much powe she has as she is pretty skinny. & she was such a sweetie when I met her later in the week after a practice. Anyway enough about Lucie in Dinara's forum:p

Yeah I have a job:bounce: I graduated from uni a few months ago. I'm not sure how it works in Canada but here in Australia all the big companies do grauduate recruitment throughout the year for the following year. I had to apply around March and then went through months & months of recruitment to get the job. First I applied then did an online psychometric test in numeracy and literacy, then I had to go to an assessment centre and we were in small groups and had to discuss things and there were people sitting around with clipboards assessing our discussion:o then I got an actual interview then I found out I got the job. Most people applied to around 10-20 different places to cover their asses and make sure they got a job but I was really picky and only applied to 4 or 5:o But I got a job so it all turned out good but it was so damn nerve wracking waiting to find out. My job is in corporate banking & has very very nice pay:lol: It is a graduate spot so I'm part of the national graduate program so there will be training provided which is one thing I was really looking for when I was looking at what companies to apply to. I haven't really done anything since finishing uni other than interviews cause I felt like I needed holiday, I did 3 semesters a year at uni so it was a very full on 3 and a half years but it was worth it. Anyway the post-uni break gave me time to have a big bash for my 21st:bounce:

Wow your job sounds awesome Naomi. And in fact, to celebrate your awesome job with its awesome salary, you might just want to send me some money. You know, for my uh, charity and stuff. :drool:
Employers don't do recruitment at my school, well at least not for the poor arts kids. I guess they just assume we're either applying for grad school or planning out long and prosperous careers in fast food. Actually, it would be pretty funny if McDonald's recruited in the arts buildings. Also sad. And probably quite telling.

All you people with your sweet careers that will give you money, and not having to be in school anymore and such. :mad:
I assume I'll end up getting a PhD so I can teach. This just means I'll be in school forever. Only 1 more year for my BA though. If I lived anywhere else I'd be done already but my stupid province had an extra year of highschool (I say "had" because the government abolished it right after my year to save $$). :mad:

Congrats on your internship Meeek! Is this a student intership though? Or are you done uni now?

Where will you teach? What agegroup?
My previous study was social pedagogical worker. I got my degree btw, but I decided to go another direction. But the internships for that study, I've all done in primary schools. Mainly with 8-12 year olds. It was fun, but I could never be a teacher....which ofcourse wasn't my function in the internship, more like personal one-on-one help for the kids in the class.
But huge respect for teachers and wannabe teachers. That takes so much to be able to do, and I wish I had it in me. But since public speaking is something I hate, I figured the teacher's academy would not quite be the right choice for me ;)


This one now, is a student internship. The pharmacy of the university medical centre in my town was seeking student pharmacy assistants (not pharmacist, total different thing which I don't have the brain for;)) a year ago. You had to apply for the it. There were 3 places for 172 applicants. I made it.
Last year was the first year, which consisted only of classes. This year though, is the big internship in the pharmacy.
Big big yikes. I've switched study's 3 times, with one fully completed, I cannot dislike this and switch again... Finger crossed. Toes crossed. Everything crossed!!

semester starts tomorrow. Already students have been stopping by
to say hello (and talk tennis!))

Thanks all :hug:

Naomi, your job sounds great.
I know what you mean though, with being worried about being able to do it. I have the same thing right now with my internship starting next week.
BUT, difference is that you're not a student anymore and they hired you because they see potential, which means you can do it! :yeah:


Thanks :hug:

I think that if I do end up teaching it will be at a university level, for the main reason that I don't know of any high schools that offer Russian language. :tape:

Which book by Foucault? It took me ages to read one of
his, and I'm not sure I understood most of it. Here's a quote from
a funny article about deconstruction:

You get maximum style points for being French. Since most of us
aren't French, we don't qualify for this one, but we can still score almost
as much by writing in French or citing French sources. However, it is
difficult for even the most intense and unprincipled American academician
writing in French to match the zen obliqueness of a native French literary
critic.

Lol that is a funny quote!

I'm reading two chapters from the history of sexuality vol 1 and an interview of Foucault. It's basically saying that our sexual drives have been repressed since the 19th century and looking at sex as a discourse and how it is discussed through discourses...it's ok i just find the way he words things a little difficult to understand...i wouldn't exactly call Foucault light reading.

Speaking of light reading i am reading a marvellous book by David Starkey called Elizabeth: Apprentice , he is like the People magazine of the Elizabeathan Era and i love it at the mo...i'm reading it for a book review i have to write for scary history and i recommend it.

Man i should start my own book club like Oprah!

maryc
Sep 3rd, 2006, 06:16 PM
Yeah, that's the book I read too, but I had to read all of it.
I got the main ideas, but it sure had a lot of words in the
book, considering there weren't so many ideas (for me, that is.)

Foucault was a French literary critic. He was one of those
deconstruction people, or at least was embraced by the deconstructionists.

Deconstruction is a fancy way of saying that you can read any text
as being a statement about itself (rather than just as being about
what the text seems to intend to say.) So sometimes (always?)
it's important to think about what it says, what it doesn't say, what
it assumes, what we assume, what we believe, etc.

They made me read the Sedgwick book too, which was even more
difficult for me, because I thought she was full of crap.

Mary, not a literary critic at all

Yeah i don't like discussion either but it went well...she sympathised with us because she knows that Foucault is hard to read.

I think i failed Spanish i wrote the crappiest love letter for my composition and then the grammer execises weren't even up to scratch...but at least if i do badly i can learn from my mistakes.

And re: Cat in the hat...i wasn't really a fan i always loved Green eggs and ham and Sam i am ( which is a great movie by the way- i couldn't stop crying)

Nothing can hold a candle to the masterpiece that is "Go Dog Go"
The brilliance! The emotion! The dogs driving cars!

My friend took Spanish and they had to write a compositon about a friend of their's on their final exam. The only adjectives she could remember were "old" and "married" so she wrote about her old, married friend. :lol:

So if this Foucault is that difficult, why is he required reading? Doesn't seem fair to me!

maryc
Sep 5th, 2006, 06:52 PM
Because all these English graduate students who are now
your professors were brain-washed (or more simply: they
had to read Foucault, so they will force you to read him, too.)

I'm reading the 2nd book of the Stephen King "gunslinger" series.
(Or is it called the Dark Tower series? Can't remember.)
That's pretty fluffy, but I like to read something like that at the
end of the day.

I know I am one of those people as well. I live on the Gold Coast and for some strange reason people who move here from down south seem to believe we don't get 4 seasons here.

I think a lot of people make the mistake that it is just a tourist strip, probably cause when they visit they only see Surfers Paradise which is only hotels, motels, restaurants, bars, shops and clubs - okay there is a school and houses in that suburb but they are more inland and I don't think the tourists venture that far:p .

You wrote that your lecturer is womanly and dreamy?? :tape: :haha:

Oh man, I remember when about 90% of all 13 year old girls thought Nick Carter was the dreamiest guy on the face of the planet. I never did though and I'm quite proud of this fact.

lol it took me a second to get your emo joke :lol:
It's pretty terrible and yet oh so hilariously funny at the same time :rolls:

Anyway, this will be my last post for the next 2 weeks. I've imposed a 2 week ban on myself from visiting/posting on WTAworld due to the fact I spend waaay to much time on it and am basically using it as an excuse not to do schoolwork.

So I bid you good day! :hatoff:
(also I hope your crazy week of 4 midterms went well) ;)

Like the sad, sad addict I am, I had to come crawling back to WTAworld just to get the shakes to go away. :lol:

Funny and also pissy annoying fact:

Yeah but I think in the US (not sure about Canda) they use a different marks system. I don't mean GPA - they use 4 point GPA but my uni used that but 69% at my uni & all aussie ones is a credit BUT I remember when there were some American study abroad students in some of my classes and they were talking between each other and they were like 'oh it is so easy to get good grades here, you only need 85% to get a HD - laugh laugh laugh, we are going to have such an easy semester' & I was like that is easy - what are you drongos smoking? Needless to say they didn't get an easy 85%:p Then I later found out that at their unis they use a different scale. Like for us 85% + is a HD but for them 85% isn't a HD. So I have no idea how they work out their percentage cause to me if you get 85 out of 100 it is 100% & 85 out of 100 isn't bad so why not make it a HD yeah?. I made a really good friend who was American and she never understood her marks and if she got a paper back and it had 77% on she would be like OMG what did I do wrong & have a heart attack & be like I thought is was pretty good, not outstanding but not this bad! & I'd be like yeah that is a distinction and she'd be like oh that's good:p Then when all her marks were converted by her 'home' uni she was only out here for a semester, her percentages went up but her actually grade (ie Distinction or HD) stayed the same:confused: .

You Rang??? LOL

Whats up Laura???? I would have replied earlier but i was swept up in the excitement at work *note sarcasm*
while that place is taking hours away from my life...but reimbursing me, i have caught up on some reading which i have avoided at all costs the whole year.....At The moment i am reading shadow in the wind...and now i'm deciding what to eat...or to eat at alll...maybe i should avoid it....i'm turning into a walrus.........this means a heavy dose of pilates and yogalates....that Denise Austin woman is so annoying "you can do it....I'm soo proud of you [because you decided to fork out a whole lot of money to pay for my lipo which i pass off as exercise]"

Hope you all have had a great day! :wavey:
