Exam today.

2:30PM, 3 hour exam during which I have to write 3 essays. Seat G427, Caulfield Racecourse, Ground Floor.


My absolute last exam. For anyone who's interested, the possible topics are as follows:

1. “Liberal democratic peace theory”.
2. China.
3. Australian defence policy since the mid 1980s.
4. The NPT.
5. Critiques of strategic studies.
6. Choose from either:
6a. US Cold War nuclear strategy
Or:
6b. G. W. Bush & the "War on Terror".
Or:
6c. Obama's 2010 Nuclear Posture Review.
7. Choose from either:
7a. The 2003 invasion of Iraq.
Or:
7b. Armed humanitarian intervention.

I can't write about the NPT, since we aren't allowed to answer questions on the same topic as our term essay. That leaves me with ... waurgh, basically.

Armed humanitarian intervention, US Cold War nuclear strategy and Liberal Democractic Peace Theory, maybe? Nervous, nervous, NERVOUS.

Fiiiiiiiiic.

Or, technically, paper!

It basically went like this:

Fickle: *FLAIL FLAIL FLAIL* I CAN'T GET THIS PAPER DONE!
Savior: I will write you at least one word for fic for every two words of paper you write before this two-hour eggtimer runs out!
Fickle: ... *WRITES LIKE A MAD THING*
Savior: *updates journal with progress bar with hovertext!*
Fickle: *does 1411/2000 within two hours*
Savior: YOU GET INTEREST ON YOUR FIC.
Fickle: *expires of happiness and never finishes paper or gets to read fic* omgyay.

I still have another 500 words to go on this paper, and another 2000 words on a different paper but seriously, we got 3/4ths of that paper done in two hours and I am all amazed. XDDDD and thrilled. Clever, clever Savior!

Current Mood: accomplished accomplished

Hitler joke.

Hitler visits a lunatic asylum. The patients give the Hitler salute. As he passes down the line he comes across a man who isn’t saluting.

“Why aren’t you saluting like the others?” Hitler barks.

“Mein Führer, I’m the nurse,” comes the answer. “I’m not crazy!”


Doing research for my essay on violence against Indian students in Melbourne atm. Mostly finding news articles instead of scholarly studies and a lot of insistence that Australia Is Not Racist, what are you talking about, it doesn't mean anything when people shout racist slurs while attacking/killing Indian students!

Seriously depressing. It makes me want to dye my snow-white puppy brown out of protest.

Or give him black cow spots. That might work too.

Current Mood: working working
