Oh stupid, stupid Melbourne weather. And stupid 9am classes. I had great fun trying to find something to wear that would actually manage to keep me warm when it was bloody freezing this morning, and yet didn't cause me to overheat when it actually got properly hot this afternoon. At least I was inside for most of the day. *sigh*

And I had to a presentation for English Learning Area. I had been getting all grumpy at the partner I was supposed to do it with, because I had kept on sending emails trying to arrange a time so we could meet up and sort out who presented what, but I got no response. And then I saw her in the actual class, and apparently her Uni email was borked and wasn't working. So yeah.

Presentation was kind of crummy and disorganised, but it happens. At least it gives me something to talk about in the reflection on it.

On the other hand, I did end up in a class watching clips from Singing in the Rain and The Princess Bride, so there was that. And FOUL had it's lift party that didn't actually happen.

And I am, once more, in need of more sleep. Huzzah for my lack of classes tomorrow.

Also, several fandom people appear to have friended me recently. Congratulations! You get to put up with this sort of whiny junk post. I do try to be more entertaining usually, but I am lacking in new amusing links right now.

Agreed. Although I had to dress for freezing morning, hot afternoon and something that would work in the editing rooms (which can swing from either freezing to stuffy-warm...)

And hah, this is late reply cause like, I was busy editing the past two days...

Editing? Editing what, exactly?

Don't mind me, just curious. I am also going to snoop about what you are studying and where.

An overlay exercise for a Documentary unit.

And that narrows your choice of universities within the state to like, two. So, not the one with the swine. ;)

Second year film major.

This isn't my subject area, I honestly don't know.

And post-grad, doing a Masters of Teaching at Melbourne Uni.

(Sorry I took so long to reply, there was a kitchen incident. And then LJ died on me.)

Yeah, LJ died on me too.

It's Film and Digital Media at Deakin. Sadly, the VCA no longer ranks so highly for film courses.

What was your undergrad?

LOL. I was in my first uni lecture at the age of 2. I was mildly sick and kindergarten didn't want me there incase I started an epidemic so I had to go to uni with my sister. I just sat there and drew.

...come to think of it, nothing's changed. :P

What are you planning to teach?

English and Psychology. But at the moment, I'm only getting classes on the teaching English thing.

Awesome. If I ever taught, I'd go for Multimedia/Film/IT Or Literature. Mind you, the Lit part would need a lot of work first.

Just looking at what I know, I don't think you can just specialise in teaching Lit. You can study teaching English and then specialise into Lit, but Lit itself isn't itself an option at Melbourne Uni.

And yeah, IIRC you need to at least minor in a subject area before you can nominate it as a teaching area.
