Fun, but a bit too absurd. I knew what to expect from a movie about a shark alarm in a German lake city being used for city marketing purposes but it was a bit too much at times.
The more I learn about computers and the internet, the more disappointed I get in my maths and informatics teacher for not having been able to excite me for this (or at least be able to tell me why this is important to anything in life at all). I am excitable as shit and it’s very, very, very easy to get me interested in pretty much anything. That’s the case now and it was the same when I was 14, so the fact that he couldn’t convince me that parts of computing and the internet are fascinating and or needed to live in the 21st century, is a complete and utter failure on his part.
I need new glasses
The amount of squinting at the board I do should not be necessary. This realization is a first-day-of-school-tradition I could do without.
As a student…
This is the clearest, most succintly formulated syllabus I have ever seen and it is not missing one thing. It has everything I need and nothing extra. Everything is outlined in a way that makes you find exactly what you’re looking for. There’s a short description of the course, an outline of how lessons will be held, topics and what you’re supposed to have read for each lesson, links to all available online readings, a list of deadlines.
It is beautiful.
KU intranet showing me the wrong classes in my profile was kind of funny the first time around (“Haha, the system thinks I’m in a class about the history of cannibalism! Wait, why am I not in this class, it sounds amazing!”). However, it keeps happening, with way more boring classes, like Empirical Methodologies 2. And since my KU intranet profile is the only point of access to my readings and my coursework… I’d like to have access because I’d like to do my reading now please.
The realest shit:
The point in youtube hairstyle tutorials where video bloggers put a strand of hair in their mouth to search for a bobby pin/hair tie.
Remember way back when in February when I saw this dress and didn’t try it on? Well, today I decided to only do a half-day at work and decided to take a walk after. I passed the shop selling it and it happens to be closing down and this dress happens to be marked down 60% and they happened to have it only in my size, so I obviously had to try it on. I was right way back when in February.
The massive weekend-rain has swamped all of Vesterbro - there were hilarious videos of drunk people riding bikes in 20 cm high water at 4 a.m. Everything’s mostly dried up now but we had an electricity issue at work which means our internet’s broken and now everybody’s working using their phone as a mobile hotspot. That’s… quick.
Scheiß mi an!
The Viennese Tatort is the best. This (“I shit myself”) is what somebody says who just witnessed a grandfather hitting his grandson (who’s using his grandpa to smuggle prescription drugs/crystal meth) over the head with a golden angel statue.
I’m allowed to stream German tv with my Danish internet connection, so I’m currently watching the news, but as soon as they talk about football and show images of today’s Bundesliga matches, my stream is cut off (because that is not licensed to be shown outside of Germany). I just get the occasional “swoosh”-sound to tell me it’s not my internet being wonky.
