But, to make up for it all, I intend to make this an absolutely epic post, which will be conveniently located behind a cut. Which is only fitting, considering I have to cover around 4 and a half months, which have also be extremely eventful.
Oh, and there is bonus Randomness included, just for your reading pleasure!
The Important Stuff
Firstly: I finished school. I may have already mentioned this, but it can't be emphasised enough.
The Valedictory Dinner: Seriously mental. And, for that, matter, alcoholic. (Giving Year 12s unlimited access to alcohol. What were they thinking?) Apart from the boring stuff, there was good music to dance to - though I advise anyone that three-inch stiletto heels are not the ideal footwear. Oh, and I got asked to dance by Nick! Squee! Pity I'll never see him again...
Results: Yes, the Infamous Results came in. I ended up with a 96.6 ENTER Score, which I found slightly staggering (though not at all unpleasant) And the individual subject scores are:
Chemistry - 42. 4th in my school. Yeah, baby! Yay for Wazza Harris!
Also, please note the significance of that number. *smirks*
English - 40. Not too shabby, eh.
Physics - 37
Indonesian - 32. Well, I was always doomed there.
Spec. Maths - 31. I gave up halfway through third term, what do you expect?
University: Well, I got accepted into my first choice, which was a Art/Science double degree.
(Note: that gives me 5 years of Uni ahead. Sigh)
And is it strange that when I see Art/Science, I automatically wonder just how that pairing works out?
Classes: And this semester's are:
Maths: because I have to. Though I am not going too bad - I got 33 out of 35 for my first assignment.
Modern Literature: Surprisingly interesting, but a lot of reading. And I now need to write an essay on Dubliners...
Psychology: Very fun. Though the lab reports are killers. A book on How to Write Lab Reports basically saved my life before Easter.
Introduction to Programming: Because I am insane.
On Campus:Have joined several clubs on campus, in the hopes of finding some like-minded random types. And I have! *Yayness*
So I have joined:
The Arts Students' Society - for the freebies.
FOUL - In theory a Monty Python fanclub, but mainly just lots of people doing silly things.
CHAS - A Douglas Adams fanclub. I assume (I am yet to turn up to any of their events)
FAS - The Fantasy and Sci-Fi club. Rocks majorly.
Thus, I have become an official 2nd-floorian. Or something of the like. I just lurk around the second floor, finding random people I vaguely know to do things with. Or witness the ever-present card games in the Lounge. Oh, and for the first time I have met some fandom-y type people in RL. Including Lauren of FAS, who is a ficcer who I managed to read several years ago. Which is slightly creepy. But it means FAS is filled with random fanfic conversations. And, of course, Slash.
Residences: Am now living in IH, one of the Residential Colleges in Melbourne. Not my first choice (cos evil St Mary's rejected me *shakes fist*) but lots of fun. If completely insane.
I tried out for this year's IH play, Othello, but did not get in *grrr*
However, for our Fundraiser Dinner, I will be part of Cellblock Tango (I'll be the first girl, Pop)
Oh, and I also joined the IT committee. Why, I don't know.
Also, my cousin Alistair married a woman named Mary-Jane (yes, really) two weeks ago. So congrats, and good for him.
The Random Stuff

Oh, and extra glomps for whoever can work out exactly where todays title comes from. And it isn't just a Movie Mash-up.
