psa: if I'm sitting in a computer lab with a programming assignment handout, programming up on my screen and my headphones in - this kind of implies I don't want to talk to you. especially if you're not actually, you know, doing this class.
[okay, so my music is as low as it will go, that makes no difference. he came up and was 'hi 8D' and I was just 'uhh... yeah. working.']

today has been bad day so far - woke up at 11 when my lectures are at 9, 10 and 11 respectively. the 11 one was cancelled. and there's the whole matter of this programming assignment. I think I'll be in the lbas for a few afternoons.
also, I need to do research and start my [livejournal.com profile] nightmare_xmas assignment.

but [livejournal.com profile] bumped's wolf game has started ¦3 this should be... interesting.

I like annotating my notes in pink fineliners. I don't know, it's just all the electronics stuff - but with pink writing! it cracks me up, okay?

also, you guys rock for answering my elf question, ahaha.

eta: my program is spitting out random errors at me. not happy.

eta2: WAIT THAT WAS EASY. however, I'm like, a week behind. I have bad work ethics. true story, i keep compiling the program to check it works, despite having changed nothing.

[go to hell.]

writing about victims and attackers in the context of electronic engineering is fun.

it's just a matter of sounding like you know what you're on about.

I think.


in other news, actually going shopping for a costume on thursday!

no idea if I'm going to go fencing, I do feel rather shitty. I can't hear very well at the best of times.

[we hide and go seek, and you know they'll never, never, ever find us.]

good Reading news on two fronts! We have tickets again! booyah. and also, in my attempt to be super cheeky, I was telling my parents I really hadn't had much for my birthday - at the current moment, it's a hoodie and a tshirt - so could I have more money for Reading. and they were 'um, didn't we pay for Reading?' 'uhh, no, I did.'
...long story short, as long as I iron and my mother's work people have a spare power supply for my pc [moar on that later], I'm getting my Reading money back. Which is like, £180. ahhh man, you have no idea how freaking awesome that is. booyah x2.

continuing on my endless quest to get my computer fixed... my dad phoned up Dell yesterday to find out that, um, yeah, the guarantee ran out nearly a year ago. he emailed them later, and found out we could buy a new psu off them and install it ourselves. dell then denied having that part and refused to let my dad talk to a supervisor. yeah, I know, some people say dells are shitty pcs [and guess what, if that's all you have to say then stfu plz :] ] but we've been using them for the last 20 years, almost. yeah. not happy.
but, as I said, the guys at my mother's work might have one for free. booyah.

also, my dad is getting a new car. strange. but in time to take me back up north. [i miss the north.]

basically, yes, I'm an overdramatic so-and-so, which means that- it's time to talk about ame, bitches. [photos will be later. but who really wants to see lots of photos of [livejournal.com profile] dogmop being a drunken spaz?]
what what, amecon. )

my caps got lost somewhere.
not mentioned is the millions of people I saw! millions and millions! and I love you allll. ♥♥
amecon next year? um, fuck yeah.

[you can cry all you want to, i don't care how much.]
kthxrawr: (fall out boy - pete - ...yeah)

apparently. my computer doesn't have an extended guarantee.

no, shit.

it's always great to be able to sit back and say 'hey, you know, we were both pretty annoying back then.'

logic gates are fun! in the way they break Mika! electronics make me go off on fun tangents. [okay seriously, we are having an indepth conversation about xor gates! ♥]

we also broke Jordan. by we, I mean Greg.

today was fun, basically. I love my friends.

[the more i hang around you, the more hangups i get.]
kthxrawr: (Kairi - destiny)
[personal profile] kthxrawr
So, um, haha, thanks computer. You lulled me into a false sense of security... and are actually still broken. Which means... on and off again, mended computer for birthday.
At least I should get my hoodie and tshirt sooon. Soon-ish.

We ended up going out to dinner two nights in a row. I feel spoilt. We went to the fish restaurant down the road which is always good. Although my dad tried to walk in the wrong door, people were making fishy jokes and my mother didn't enjoy her food. And we talked about programming over dinner.

Okay, a few summers okay - two years, to be precise - a woman at the stables asked me how old I was, and was super surprised I was 18. She thought I was 14.
When I said it was my birthday tomorrow, she said she thought I was 18.

It's maybe too warm to sleep. Or I'm too tired.

I seem to be off all over the place in the next few weeks. Possibly going to London on Sunday, then Bex's birthday the weekend after, then back up to Manchester. July is relatively empty, then it's a month of awesome - Tokonatsu, Amecon and Reading. Then I'm back at uni. And who knows?

[but i am paid to make girls panic while i sing.]

This is one of those days where I think, 'why do we need the internet anyway?'

...I'm well aware of the irony.

[Call 911, I'm already dead but someone should be caught and held responsible for this bloody mess.]

We just handed in a 170 page report. Ahahaha, whaaaaat.

120 pages of that was the freaking appendix.

[Trade baby blues for wide eyed browns.]
kthxrawr: (p!atd - Brendon - you can't be serious)
[personal profile] kthxrawr
Oh, the freaking irony. I made some comment on my computer being an arse last night, and literally, as soon as I posted that entry, it turned off. And kept turning off. My precious computer is now being taken home this weekend for repairs. But my parents are going away on Wednesday. So... yeah, who knows when I'll get poor Pico back. I will be getting my old pc back for a while, so I will still have internets. Need to see if I can beat this thing into submission for long enough to get some music off it.
I really do hate technology.

However, it did lead to Paws having to hack into my facebook to get things for me. ...I should really change the password back.

The best part of this is I didn't realise my parents were going away so soon. Oops.

[also apparently I have a lot of icons? :P]

[This is side one, flip me over, I know I'm not your favourite record.]

I'm totally in awe of this chewing gum. If you hadn't already figured, I have a cold, and it makes me complain about it. I'm also not sleeping very well. Possibly related. Whatever.
Airwaves chewing gum makes me feel so much better. ♥ Honestly. At least enough to help me hold out until I can go get some lemsip. Oh, and breakfast too. I forgot I only had breakfast yesterday. But I'm losing time, and my lecture is in an hour, but hey, I live so close.
I really hate being ill. XD

In other really sucky news, Data Networking is in for tomorrow. Damn you and your binary polynomials. Damn you path finding algorithms.
At least he finally put the notes online. [oh my god semagic, online is a real word, believe me on this plz.]


where is my pokemon? D: Come on, send it already.


Meme time!
Comment and I will:

1 - Tell you why I friended you.
2 - Associate you with a song/film.
3 - Tell a random fact about you.
4 - Tell a first memory about you.
5 - Associate you with a character/pairing.
6 - Ask something I've always wanted to know about you.
7 - Tell you my favorite userpic of yours [if it pertains].
8 - In retort, you must spread this disease in your journal.

[also, this icon has somehow become my default 'i feel shit' icon. weird.]

Okay, shopping for clothes sucks. I do have a pair of jeans that was a) cheap and b) fits perfectly, but... yeah.
Kick boxing time!

Gets - Primark jeans, that are actually gorgeous and have pockets and are not skinny jeans. As I already said, they fit nicely. I love baggy jeans. Although they are somewhat lacking with pockets - going from combat jeans with hundreds of pockets makes me sad.
Animal tops~ Okay, I'll admit it. I have an addiction to Animal tops. But there's a light green one [with a camper van on the front, I am so cool, not] and a black and pink one.
Jewellery! Brought some cheap lame earrings [which I may or may not be allergic to, but the pretty wins] and a shell necklace.
Make up, for I am a make up whore. Seriously. I have brought about three different eyeliners in the last few weeks. Why do I need blue eyeliner? Answers on a postcard.

Ugh, seriously, I am not wanting to go to uni! Plus the sunlight is kind of blinding.
I like procrastination, and I hate C.

I also kinda need to tidy up. Already.

I cannot wait until Pokemon. For serious.

"We all have things about our friends that make us slightly envious. Not in a bad way, but in a 'WOW! I wish I had that person's hair/eyes/money/relationship/toenails/whatever!' So tell me what about me makes you envy me... then post this in your LJ and see what makes me envious of you."

[okay, go on, who's going to the predictable thing and say 'your chest'?]

[edit: most useful hour in uni ever. I got halfway there and stopped to talk to one of my group members for an hour.]

Oh, screw you, Manchester.

The handbook says one thing, and the year tutor told me a different thing. Annnnd. I'm off the four year course, it seems. After my tutor saying 'Yeah, you'll be fine. :D'

Gah. Had to send it on a Friday, didn't they.

ETA: I spoke to my mum and she was 'Come home!' XD So bye~
[livejournal.com profile] lady_stargazer, um, I'll look at the fic to find critique later, all I want to say so far is I love it :3 And, ee, you wrote Brendon/Ryan. *coughs*

Also, I want this. So, looks to be one of the first things with next term's loan?

[But we walk the plank on a sinking ship.]

Interview from [livejournal.com profile] lacus ♥~ [questions will be coming soon! Or at the weekend.]

1. What made you want to change your username?
It just seemed really childish. XD I'm growing a bit out of the anime fandom - or at least, the fangirl Japanese side of it - and it was a nickname I thought up when I was 15. XD [livejournal.com profile] kthxrawr is still pretty silly, but... less so?

2. You've been on my flist for a looong time. Any reason you haven't decided I'm too boring to keep? XD
I don't like taking people off my list, unless they don't update [although there's some people who don't update but I'm still attached too XD], have really pointless posts or are annoying. You're none of those XD I do find your posts interesting, even though any fandom stuff isn't anything I'm into. I'm creepy, I like reading about other people's lives >3

3. What's your favorite Muse song?
Ohh, hard one. There are so many. Starlight is definitely my favourite off the new album, and I still have much love for Citizen Erased [especially the live version from Hullabaloo], Butterflies & Hurricanes, In Your World... I could be here forever. But those above are probably my favourites. I love this band so much, heh.

4. Are you into any fandoms right now?
...Ahaha, bandslash, and that's about it. It's the only fandom I've actually had any vague inspiration in lately. [And plus, they have cute boys. I'm shallow.] A lot of the anime fandoms I was in I just don't have the motivation for anymore. I'm getting too lazy to keep up with subs.

5. What are you studying in school?
Electronic Systems Engineering :333 it's the chip-end of electronics - all the lower power you-wont-accidentally-get-electrocuted side of things. Like, right now we're learning about data flow on the internet. ...It sounds more interesting than it is.


I have to wait for another half an hour to go do all the work I should have been doing over the last week, argh. It shouldn't be that bad, I just need to figure out pins and the like.
Annnnd nobody has any idea what I'm on about, lawl.
Ok, basically, we have this project this year that's worth 10 credits [the equivalent of a whole module with exam] and for my part of the course, we're making a weather station. So basically, we program a board to take light, temperature and pressure measurements, store them, and show them on a lcd screen. We also have to program a touchscreen. Guess who's procrastinating on that? :3
However, Mechatronics have the coolest project, because they get to build a robot buggy. They race them XD

However, the first years are there at the moment, which means we can't go in. Do not want. Well, at any rate, as long as I can go in, measure some resistances [ok, for someone who deals with electronics every day, I should not find it so hard to spell that word >0] and at least do something... it will be ok. However, I'm contemplating leaving most of it until our actual scheduled lab time.


I have hit a wall regarding all inspiration and motivation. Someone, help! xD

[It's almost everything I need.]

Ganked from [livejournal.com profile] shuraiya~
1 -- Reply to this post!
2 -- I will tell you which of YOUR icons I like the most.
3 -- Then post this to your own journal using YOUR favorite icon.
4 -- That's it! :D

My favourite icon, hmm? Oh wow, that's hard. Because... I love icons. I do actually really like this icon I'm using as my default, it's simple, but I'm quite proud of it. I didn't do much, but oh well.
I also have a soft spot for catbog because dumb injokes are fun.


Okay, so in life. It's been a... uh, interesting week. I've had three exams - one went terribly, one went ok, one went excellently [today's, thank god.] and one was cancelled. Because a crane fell into our building? Who knows. It means I do have an exam after we should have finished, which kinda sucks. But as Jonny put it, 'It's a sign, I obviously hadn't revised enough.'

I'm also feeling kinda good about friendships lately, Tuesday night/Wednesday morning when I was being emo about my exam, I had a really good talk with Neko. It gave me a little more faith in my situation - it's not the end of the world, and my friends love me. So yeah... thanks. :3
And also... simply telling me things like 'I'm really busy, I can't talk now.' is something that does mean a lot to me. I hate it when there's that silence there. I'm never going to be offended if you tell me you're busy, in fact, I'll be pleased that you told me, rather than ignoring me.
Also, it's good being almost back at uni. I know I've got to really work this term, but still, I kinda missed everyone. It's funny, since Jonny really sorta is my closest friend at uni. But sitting around in the union before our exam, semi-revising, eating and just talking is fun. Even if Mark is an arse, and I enjoy kicking Jonny.

So yeah, that exam. I'm mostly annoyed at myself, it was a stupid thing to do. But even if I'm off the 4 year course, I can do a Master's and a PhD afterwards. It's not the end of the world. But I have an evening off, and can spend the weekend revising for the next two exams.
I'm thrilled at today's paper. I think I did ok.

I was bad and splashed out a little yesterday, I ended up buying a Winnie the Pooh pencil case set :33333 so cute~ It's bigger than the Hello Kitty one, which is stained, and plus - matching stationary! I'm so 5 years old secretly. Also brought random stuff from Boots [most of it I don't really need] like a set of foot care stuff - it's got a soak, a scrub and some 'foot butter', bwahah - a comb, some new face wash and paracetmol with caffiene in. Silly things, but I do love shopping. Probably gonna save clothing shopping for a while so I have someone to go with, and hopefully when I'm in better shape.
Which reminds me, as time goes on, the hospital date looms closer. Except, I haven't got one yet. I still have to go to the doctors. XD

I've also been talking to my mum a lot this week, which makes me feel all :3333 It's kinda nice to know they'll always be proud of me, and have them reassure me that not staying on the four year course isn't the end of the world. [However, I did figure out that if I did the BEng, then a MSci, and then a PhD, I'd have the most degrees in the family. Booyah. I'd be in uni till I was like, 30 though.]

Today is a much confusing day. First off, it is Snow Patrol! Yayyay. :3. Also, it's Loki and others in Manchester day, and pre-Auchi day! Also is my lj's 4th birfday. :0
Yeah, but I'm so tired. Ended up having dreams about warring vampire clans [Ellie and Tegan were vampires >[] and various stuff.

One piece of coursework down, millions to go. :3 This is a warning, I will have my java stuff with me at Auchi, and anyone who mentions blackjack will die. >[ This thing must die.
I also have no idea where I'm sleeping the various nights. Since I have two offers. o_o;; *rund around*

And all this time updating is time I'm not showering :3 So byeeeee.

[But in truth I'm lost for words.]

...I really hate groupwork.
It's been said that I don't work well with others. I try to. I'll smile, I'll do what other people tell me to, I'll point out the dumb little things that people get confused over, I try and be nice. :D
But sometimes... ugh.
So yeah! Story time! :3

An Electronic Engineering Story of Woe.
or, why Sarri really really hates everyone else.

Okay. We have to do this circuit simulation thing for our groupwork tutorial. One of my group volunteers me and her to do it. ...Not that she actually asked me. We say we'll meet Sunday evening and I hope she means earlyish. She also says she has the notes and labs from last year.

Sunday evening rolls around, and I feel shit. My eye has been going bloodshot, I had a really awful nights sleep and I feel kinda sick. I'm about to give up, when she's 'Oh! 7.30 - 8 ok?' I'm a doormat. I say yes. An hour or so later, she decides she's going out and we'll meet at 8.30. At this point, I say I feel really shit and I'm just not going to be able to stay awake that long. 'But,' she says, 'I can't actually do any of this!' So yes. She basically says we'll do it so she gets credit. [I'm not denying that she hasn't done a lot of good research, just... don't say you'll do something you have no intention of doing!] She says she'll meet me when she's finished eating. I go over, only to find... she doesn't have those notes. End up phoning another guy in the group who does have them, and we say we'll go get them in the morning and skip that lecture. I tell her that really, there's no need for us both to go, it really only needs one person to do it, and I'm okay doing it on my own, but she says she'll come in and try and feel useful.

So, this morning, she leaves me a message telling me to go get the notes off this guy, and she'll meet me 'about 9' in the computer labs. I turn up at the start of the lecture, he's not there, so rather than try and sneak out of a lecture halfway through, I go to the computer labs to try and see if the notes are somewhere in the shared file stuff. But fortunately, I find a simulation from last year that I can change a bit. The other guy texts me at 9.10 asking where I am, I tell him it's ok and I've got the notes. And so much for about 9, she turns up at half past. By this time, I've altered the circuit and all I need is one bit of data which she could have texted me.

...And you know what? It was the wrong circuit. :D In the tutorial, I basically said that I hadn't realised about why we needed the other one, and our tutor was 'Surely it was a group decision?' ':D;;; I don't know so I'll just take the blame.'

The kicker is that we all got marked 'excellent' for our tutorial when we gave him the wrong circuit, and that I'm now somehow group leader.
Doom, I tell you.


And if you hadn't guessed by that, I feel... crap. :3;; My dad gave me Chinese money again, and it feels somewhat wasted. The soup was gorgeous, the starter selection... kinda greasy. And huge bag of prawn crackers? @_@;; And it was expensive too ;___;
But now I don't need to buy food until the weekend, which is good 8D;; However... seeing the Threadless $10 sale is bad.

My eye does keep turning pink, and I'm so tired... I love it how my insomniac group memember is like 'You're always sleeping like 8pm!' I need sleep, k. >_>;; I generally need a lot of sleep. I can't cut it on 2 hours or so unless I'm overloading with caffiene or guaranteed to have a good night's sleep or nap later.
And... I think I should be along to the doctors fairly soon, probably. XD It's not good.

It's also getting to the point of 'ohshitohshitcoursework'. ♥

I have decided I want to dye my hair candy apple red. It'll be cute. I just... need the dye now.

[I love how the first bit of my entry has barely any smilies, then it's like 'WHOA SMILIE OVERLOAD'.]

This song is about cheating. ._.;; It's obvious now, but... .______.
