[act]sings[/act] Im waiting for the bus in the rain. In the rain. Waiting for the bus in the rain.
At uni 6:23pm waiting for my work to save on 'PebblePad' and I really need to go to the toilet but I can't leave the computer.
ONLINE activities SUCK!!!!!
Totally agree with you! I'm finally feeling well enough to get seriously working on the cert 4's I am enrolled in and the stupid online system wont accept my enrollment- Its been a week and they still haven't managed to fix it.
Good start to the day is good. Get attacked by a bee that wants a ride under my shirt, in the process dropping my drink bottle and getting it all scratched (a lovely metal one), then the bus is 15 minutes late, which meant two of the same bus showed up behind one another!
Right, instead of ranting to my brother (again) I might as well make use of this thread for once.
Third year of uni is terrible. This is my mid-sem break, and I am swamped with assessments. Three of which are group assessments, which really annoy me, primarily because when we've had group meetings, one person hasn't been at them, and then that person subsequently decides on their own that they're going to change the focus of the assignment we decided on with the tutor. Without even asking us if we had made a decision about the work.
[/end rant] [act]potters off to procrastinate some more tonight[/act]
Oh, I understand the pain of group tasks all to well Arwen.
I myself am ranting about one of my group tasks which is a screen production shoot.
The shooting period was on the weekend, which was fine, but the timing of the whole thing was absolutely horrible. I was up by 5 am, out of the house by 5:30, and I did not get home to 9pm both nights.
That in itself is not so bad, by the director of this shoot, the one who is pretty much in charge of telling actors + crew what to do in terms of creative elements and whatnot - the person who wrote the script in this case, was and is a complete and utter annoyance.
To make it worse, she seems to have chosen me, (im the camera guy) as her main fall guy, which I would gladly have a go back at her, but I had to keep my mouth shut so as to not rock the boat to try and keep things flowing for the best group mark.
The amount of times I had to bite my tongue as she told me bloody stupid conflicting things and then blamed me for not doing the one she 'already' told me to do.
Or, I would ask if she wanted me to use the camera to digitally zoom in to focus on a particular point, then have the screen flip back to the correct size - which does not change the shot, angle or coverage, she told me no (I had already done it anyway, cause I know what the hell I was doing) she then goes and does the exact same thing she told me not too, after telling me to move away from the camera!!
All of this stuff has been going on since pre-production - from the auditions actually, where in my individual production tasks I had to get a still from each actress auditioning and write some production note. I filmed the audition on her camera and sd card, as she told me that she'd send me the pics or the reel after the audition - whichever was easier.
She then proceeds to then ignore my requests for the images until the day before the shoot saying that I should have taken my own photos from my phone and that she would not be giving me the images from the audition.
The hypocrite has been getting to me more than usual due to my lack of sarcasm and proper insulting responses due to me attempting to get the best possible group mark.
NEVER AGAIN, will I work with that hypocritical person.
Side note, I think I did very well in keeping expletives out of this rant.

Bleeeh, I'm sick so I slept pretty much all day so now I'm awake but it's 3am so I can't do anything anyway.
I know this is a minor quibble in the grand scheme of things, but it's "thank you", not "thankyou". Why is this the new trend? I realise I'm fighting a losing battle with my insistance on "e-mail" rather than "email" and so on, but this one makes no sense. What's next,"excuseme"?
I forgot how annoying working sunday nights is. My bus doesnt come for like forty minutes and it is now too dark to read while I wait.
You don't have a torch app on your phone?
Also, buses still run that late? o_O
Yeah, I catch the last one home.
Ah! Brings back memories of the days when I used to catch the last train back from work, arrive home well after midnight, and spend an hour or two on here before crashing. :P
Haha, that was me when I was still travelling to uni from Gippsland. XD I do not miss those days.
I have finished the first draft. I have finished the second draft. I have good feedback from my teachers. There is one week left after trials to obsessively polish it to perfection before I hand it in and I think I kind of know what I\'m doing.
Why am I still worried sick to the pit of my stomach about my Extension 2 English major work -
This may be a lame rant, but...my friend really needs to stop talking about his girlfriend. I feel like every third sentence is about how great she is. Honestly, she's actually quite nice and everything, but I just can't handle hearing how wonderful she is every time we talk. Somehow me saying that I'm hungry prompts him to say that she is really pretty. Brain cannot comprehend how he made that link. I now want to hide from my friend so to avoid hearing about his new girlfriend 24/7. I am either a horrible friend or incredibly (stupidly?) patient to have tolerated this for 3 months. Gahhhhh
13yo me failed to capitalise my username here.
8 years, 6 months and 1 day later, this is still annoying me.
You know that although you cannot capitalise your username, you can change your display name?
Huh, I thought that feature was removed and our display names set.
How do I change it? (I had a look at setting and updated my profile last night, but I haven't found that feature.)
I noticed that after the migration, people's display names disappeared, but you can reset them. When I click on my name and go to my user settings page, then click the "Click here to update your information" button, the first field up the top says "Display name". Is that what you see, as well? It's possible what I see is a bit different given I've been given MoO privileges. If you don't get an editable display name, can you describe what you see or take a screen shot? I can look into it after Christmas is over.
I don't see it - will PM you.
As to the specific problem - as you can see, Agyllian has been WONDERFUL and changed it for me. :D
It was actually real name and as per your photo, it IS in your settings (and is set to Emi), but for some reason doesn't show up next to your posts. I'll have a fiddle after Christmas.
I miss putting coloured writing in my posts :(
