Shit thats even worse...what famous celebrities are there named Tori and Dean?? Tori Amos and Dean Guyer!?!? O_O If those two got together, I'll be like WTF cuz Tori Amos is like 40-something, is she not and Dean is like 20.....I understand older men, but NOT older women!?!?
(I will have a lot of girls wanting to kill me for saying that, but its true, the peak age for girls is 25 and guys can peak when they're 30 or older XD)
A science major?....no, no you don't understand I'm only doing HSC Biology this year. XD Haha it's a long story as to why...a very long, depressing story. =P
Awwww don't say "unfortunately"...not being overly ambitious makes you human. =P Frankly, a lot of people who are very, very ambitious and intelligent just get too full of themselves and/or have no personality. Commerce still brings in money anyway haha, veterinary nursing not so much.
Haven't watched the Gilmore Girls yet, but my brother was obsessed with it...used to spend everyday watching the DVD until he finished all the seasons. XD
The New Zealand might've been better if they could SPEAK..I could never understand a word they said. Having said that, it was not that much different from the Australian one in terms of quality....the American one is the only version worth looking up on youtube, as much as Tyra Banks pisses me off. The new cycle has just started.
Haha, I'm sure you're much more productive than I am!...although, in my defense I'm only studying biology this year (because I am that lazy....and I wanted to make room for volunteering in animal shelters and the zoo....I sound so pagaent-y but I want a career in animal care and welfare, so thats why I'm doing it)....you are doing 4 unit maths, God bless your soul. XD Is that what you're procrastinating from? If it is, I don't blame you! And you're doing physics too....crap man, I'm assuming you want to do something along the lines of engineering?
But yeah, I'm doing alright thanks just trying to find something to do apart from watching reruns of the America's Next Top Model.
Good looks can compensate for no talent, I say. =P
Two days before your exam!? It was on Wednesday night for me and I had an 8:30 exam the next morning... Ended up catching the train home and getting to sleep at about 2:30 am !!! BUT IT WAS SO WORTH ITTTT!!
You missed out
But don't worry, she'll be back....hopefully!!
Good to hear you're interested in reading some philosophy! Imo its one of the best things ever - really opens our eyes to the fundamentals of how we think and how the world works - plus you can really weave in alot of philosophy into your English essays!
Just off the top of my head based on my recent reading - most of this isn't overly specialist which is good
- Paul Davies, Mind of God, Fabric of the Cosmos
- Sartre, Nausea, Being and Nothingness
- Peter Singer, Practical Ethics
- Plato, Symposium, Republic, The Last Days of Socrates
- Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarasthustra, The Birth of Tragedy
- Bertrand Russell, A History of Western Philosophy
- David Hume, An Enquiry Concerning Human Undestanding (specialist, but very readable and he has a good sense of dry wit and humour)
- Albert Camus, The Stranger, The Rebel (fiction, but existentialist)
Have fun! Good to see you keep up the reading even in Yr 12! Good luck, and have a great year
converted? i was always better at english than maths thanks to my parents giving up on making my sisters read. i only chose ext. maths because mrs m. and my dad told me to and my mum was no help. her only contribution was "don't do a language. you're too old to be able to take it in easily.". english ext. 2 is the best!
omg you do four units of maths? at least em and i are helping each other write stories (hers for a hobby) so it's not complete social suicide. and physics too? at least you're only doing 10 units.
my assignments are all done at the last minute, i'm not spending time with friends and my mum's worried i'm becoming depressed so i'm dropping drama and very likely hunter drama too, and maybe i'll start feeling better.
