i guess there goes my cig breaks and 20min lunch break during 6 hours of study. :jaw: how can i not have my cig breaks.... perhaps grab a friend or near person to reserve my seat will do it? the uni is soooo big, they should have made a bigger sized library!

hahaha this reminds me being a guy, if a girl did that to my seat and she looked reasonably hot. I will ask her politely once, if she is hesitant or declines, i will just sit on her lap haha! that will do the trick. Oh.. unless she was bored and wanted some fun ;)

If it were me i would probably think the person coming back was lying as well tbh. There have only been a couple of times i have seen someone leave their desk for a moment, far more often they are gone for over 45 minutes or more. And i guess i can understand being pissed off if that happened after you had been looking for a desk for ages. I dunno, things seem to go a bit loco in the library during exam period.

Hahaha shitt this is why I avoid the mq library. I went there like 2 weeks ago to get some books for my essay and the library was packed. Was trying to find somewhere to sit for 10 mins to go through the books to see which ones I wanted but half the desks were just empty with peoples crap all over it.

Originally I sat on the floor in between shelves going through my books but then one of the librarians shouted at me :( so then I just found an empty shelving stand.

Then I left the library promptly and went to my local library. So much nicer there anyway.

Oh wow he actually yelled at you? I've sat on the floor heaps of times during the last 2 weeks of uni when there wern't any seats (mainly cause it was nice and warm in the library) but I've never had any of the staff get anrgy at me before for doing it.

Bloody hell, why do most of these problems arise from the international students?
I don't know. i reckon Australia should have a rule, no nerdy rude hard out asians with grammar so poor its not funny and more sexy Swedish students!!!!!!(if anybody points out a grammatical error i will take your pens!!!)

btw everything that annoys me at mq seems to be linked to an international student, none of which have been sexy Swedes, therefore with more hot babes mq would be a better place....also if people stopped writing about gay/marxist/what ever you kids are complaining about these days protests on the ground.

FYI I am an international student..

and even I hate international students. esp those who can't speak english and hog library chairs and speak in level 4 study spaces. 2 days ago was so annoyed with these 2 chinese girls coz they have been talking for the past 1 hour in level 4 QUIET study space. I told them off... they stay quiet for 20 mins then their friends come and talk again. I had to give them a lot of evil glare to shush them up... ITS FREAKING "QUIET" STUDY SPACE FOR GOD SAKE SHUT UP!!! :mad:

Same 2 all Indian, Sri Lankan, (South) East asian...students I dare say? And I'm an overseas guy as well.

Some local guys are nothing different from that 2. A bit fewer however.

2 me as long as they are hot they can talk shit freely lmao. If it's not the case it will be another story.

as a chinese international student, i saw this thread a couple of days ago and decided to remain silent as long as the criticism on internationals was not 'crossing the line'...However not surprisingly ppl started to blame us for everything and even explicitly showed ur hatred and discrimination of international students. Now I would like to make it clear to you, Mr Not-Vietnamese, as well as all other proud locals and Anglo-saxon internationals,
1) we ARE able to speak english.

2) like it or not, we are entitled to speak our own language as long as we are not in class.

3) I agree that it is very inappropriate to talk to ppl in chinese without asking if u speak the language. But maybe they thought u r chinese. Every time i go to Korean stores or Japanese hair salons, ppl talk to me in Korean and Japanese as well, and i've never been pissed off.

Should be "another one" coz I don't know about the one u mentioned. So what's ur nationality, Thai I suppose? Why mentioned Vietnamese ppl here?

ok, firstly calm down. We are not blaming you for everything, just expressing how sometimes we are irritated and how it is surprising how a large minority of these incidences are linked to international students. on your first point, yes most speak english, however some speak and write very poorly. 2) nobody has said that you are not allowed to speak your native language, however we are talking about loud conversations in places which are quiet areas, ie during lectures tutorials which in my case happens a lot.(im not sure if its louder or just stands out more because it is a foreign language but its annoying nonetheless)

and what line has been crossed, were not saying to round up all international students and throw them into a volcano, were not saying to walk around beating up international students or not letting them into lectures, were just saying that putting stuff on desks when your not using them is annoying, and in most cases this seems to be international students.
