11:40 pm - Yeah, I'm putting the gratuitous into GIP
So, this would be the post where I talk about all the Uni stuffs that I have been neglecting to mention in all my fannishness.

Anyhoo, this week saw that S&M lecture for Anthropology. It's probably not entirely surprising I felt the lecturer spent rather too long on the part explaining all the terminology and what it entails because I already knew all that stuff from fandom.

The social aspects and stuff, though, were rather interesting.

Speaking of Anthropology, I went and did my class presentation on that this week. ...Which means 500 word paper due next week. But it's on gender and power, which is at least interesting to write on.

Oh, and I have decided I shall be writing my end of semester ethnographic whatsit for Anthropology on... the Anonymous protests. So I shall be toddling along to check that out this weekend. (I've been meaning to go for a while, but I keep being lazy. Now I have additional motivation!)

I'm trying to work out if the Guy Fawkes mask is comfortable enough, or if I should just stick to hat and glasses.

In other subjects, second Research Methods homework assignment was handed in today. Which makes two out of three done.

Oh, and we are supposed to hand in something for Creative Writing next week, to prove we've been working. So this weekend shall also entail getting ideas in my head fully down on paper. (Idea is currently a countdown to the end of the world. YA RLY, my brain is strange. Am currently deciding between multi-perspective and a bit pretentious, or with a focus on one character which would have a bit more of a narrative, and be a bit more humour-tinged.)

Urgh, Uni. Make it go away. *sigh* I tihk I will feel batter once the mid-semester crazy is out of the way, and I can look forward to Doctor Who week on my TV subject, just to see hoe everyone else reacts to it in the screening...heh.

What's Creative Writing like? I did one subject back in the dark ages when I was a first year. Are the level 2/3 subjects any better?

Mid-semester is not the most pleasant time at Uni, I do agree. I wonder which episode/s they will show?

It's a bit of a bludge subject, to be honest. But I like my tutor, so it's an enjoyable bludge subject, rather than a dull one. I like to have at least one subject that's a bit less... tension inducing.

I am intrigued by episode selection also. They don't seem to be revealing specific episodes until the week before we watch them though. Next week is Buffy, so I am interested to see what they will pick for that week as well.

See, Creative Writign seems like the bludge subject, but hen it involves having people dissect somethin g you've written, WHILE you are there, which removes the bludge factor and replaces it with terror and dread. At least for me.

You shall have to let me know.

I'm... normally fine about presenting my work, actually. Which is odd, since I suck at public speaking, but there you go.

Just be careful. Don't know if things are as crazy where you are, but I'm sure you know there were several Anonymi arrests and whatnot, plus that guy who took off his mask to scratch his nose, was tracked down, and later arrested. (I believe he's the one with the mysteriously dead cat Mudkip as well.) Be careful, and carry a video camera. He not only got out of the charges but may even be able to press charges on the Scientologists because of some video that was taken.

Australia hasn't had anything nearly that mad happen. Not thus far, anyway...

Well, thank Heaven. Near me, there haven't been arrests, but you're not allowed to wear a mask and they've been out taking photos. I haven't gone yet, still debating. This month I can't go anyway.
