I shan't be considering myself one any more.
They are the backbone of British society!
but now that I'm not one I can't stand them.
Just because you say the words 'Chuck Norris' before something doesn't make it funny.
the ubergruppenstudent will be informed of this....
'I'M A POSTGRAD!'
that you students don't have to get up at 530 in the morning.
I hate the fact you don't have to pay taxes
I hate the fact you can take books out for free and concentrate on things that interest you, instead of being in a dead end non- rewarding fucking job that takes every bit of fucking stale hope you ever had and crushes it into hundreds and thousands.
our minds are already dead, they've got the slow crushing sense of defeat to come
Never take valium when you have to get up 4 hours later.
i hate the fact that this year is costing me about 13,000 in fees and living costs and i'm going to be qualified for a job that, if i did it in cambridge, would pay 14,000 a year.
i also hate the fact that i have a lecture in 20 minutes that i'm going to be late for
because I have a fucking degree and little work experience.
should take comfort in the fact that students will soon have a huge come down and reality check and the higher the fly the harder the fall ;P
then u can laugh and sprinkle your hundreds and thousands on them whilst they lay crying on the floor in front of u with a big joker smile on your face
all i can do in the meantime is stare doom and destitution in the face
in tuittion fees alone i'm paying almost 9000 a year
Someone shoot me , tell me off for just buying a pack of fags.
someone shoot me and tell me i'm an annoying bitch
but alas, come september i must become one :(
I miss studying. I miss feeling intelligent. I miss Freud. I miss everything. I miss life...QUICK SOMEONE SLAP ME
on top of lectures etc, of which i have more than any other subject apart from mandarin chinese, i have to learn 25 kanji (chinese characters) a week, all with around 4 different readings (both chinese and japanese) and many different possible combinations, which usually entail even more readings, a ridiculous amount of vocabulary which we are tested on every week, and i have 3 3,000 word essays to write on the significance of natural imagery within basho's haiku poetry, realism in kamakura period buddhist sculpture, and another about secular japanese art, of which my knowledge is currently confined to lacquerware, netsuke, inro and ojime beads, which will no doubt be seen as irrelevent.
and i have to get a job, and not just any job either, which will take away all my free time for the sake of improving my cv and earning some money, due to the fact that i am terrified of amounting to nothing, and that london has drained my account balance beyond belief.
really, if it's any consolation, this isn't a walk in the park either.
