Here we get only four, and it is mandated by the government that three be used at the start of the year.

Well, B Commerce (Liberal Studies) at USyd is my 3rd preference. It needs 98.45. And B Commerce/B Economics at UNSW is my 8th preference, and it needs 95.65. So, yeah, that to fall back on.

For straight economics, yeah, it's a bit lower, but I'd probably want something more than that. There's a reason why it's 'only' high eighties. Given my ranks, my school's past results, trial results, estimations, etc. I'd be reasonably disappointed to get below 97 (which may or may not be setting myself up for disappointment), so I may as well go for the more local/higher mark/double degree.

Passed my repeat exam and got into third year. A huge gamble paid off. Basically I stayed abroad as long as possible before I had to return to Ireland to sit the exam. I gave myself a few days to cram for an exam that I had absolutely no aptitude for nor had any idea of the course material. Stayed up all night memorising answers before the exam. Passed with 42%. If I had got 39% I would have had to sit just that one exam for the whole of the 09/10 academic year.

It was economics which I'm dropping this year and the grade will not go towards my final degree grade. Aw yeah. Lesson not learned.

It ain't (well, just as much as anywhere in Australia is near the desert). The dust storm came from Broken Hill, approximately 1000km away. It's the first time I've ever seen this type of thing in Sydney. Kinda apocalyptic.

Hmm... that's what I thought. After checking out some maps, it looks like that storm got some insane mileage! A comparison is like having a dust storm originate in New Mexico and end up in Chicago :eek:. The only difference is that your storm had to endure hills and thick forests (its called the Bush, right?).

Yah, wind is always fun to watch. Though, contrary to my city's nickname, wind doesn't come here often. But when it does, its usually in Derecho form, and those kick winds up close to Hurricane speed (so close to (I think) 70 mph), so basically the speed at which your in for :D.

Heh, I thought I was crazy having dreams in other languages. Obviously I am not.

I almost never think in just one language, so it's pretty easy to understand that I don't dream in only one language either. :) It happens to anyone who speaks at least one foreign language fluently.

I think the only times when I only think in one language are when:
1) I'm writing a text or a post in a langauge
2) a few minutes (~20 minutes to 1 hour) after watching a movie or hearing a story or a play in a certain language.

Because of its Germanic roots, English helped me a lot with learning German, so ever since I got here I've been thinking pretty much solely in English mixed with German (the latter only if the thoughts I have on my mind are simple enough - I would do it always, if only I could...). I've pretty much intentionally forgotten that I have a mother language, until I become fluent in German. Having a dream in German proves to me that I can think in it, without problems. Okay, I still cannot express myself coherently if I have to explain something complicated to someone, but at least my brain is getting used to this particular kind of thinking. Learning a foreign language is like re-building the categories with which your mind works, one can never become fluent in a language if one constantly translates from another language.

Edit: BTW, tomorrow I have a German exam, which if I don't pass, will send me back to Romania.... I have absolutely no fear though, and somehow through some weird effects of the psychological factors involved, I've become way, way more confortable with speaking in German in the last 2 days or so.

I learnt German at school, and since I finished school I don't learn it anymore, and I am very grateful for that. Whether it was because of the teachers or not, I ended up having no enthusiasm in it at all, and was glad to see the back of it.

As for not being able to become fluent in a language if one constantly translates from another language, that is totally true. Even putting it most practically, one can't have a conversation with someone in another language by thinking of something in your mother tongue and then translating it in to the other. The conversation would be disjointed and all.

Good luck with your exam tomorrow! Not that, it sounds, like you will need any luck.

If you don't constantly think in the foreign language(s) that you study, even after years of practice you will always sound "slightly unusual". :) That's the problem with learning a foreign language in your own country, unless your country is itself multilingual (Switzerland, Belgium, African ex-colonies of various European countries, etc). That's especially visible in sentence and phrase structure. Romanian has a very different sentence structure to English, and German is entirely different (although one can still see traces of the old Germanic word positioning in English, it evolved so much that it's its own category now).

Some examples of those old similarities with English and German:
1) The so-called V2 positioning in some fixed phrases. In German, if there's anything before the subject, the subject moves AFTER the verb, so that the verb is always second (in main sentences only). For example, one wouldn't say "yesterday I went to the theater" but "yesterday went I to the theater". In English it's not so anymore, but you can still see traces of it in some fixed phrases, like "so am I" (instead of "so I am") or "not only DID THEY not agree with me, they..."
2) verb at the end of secondary sentences. In German, the verb is always at the very end of the sentence, if the sentence is secondary. But that used to be so in English too! Example: "I have no idea where they all WENT", and not "I have no idea where went they all".

Although it can be truly difficult at times, especially if one doesn't do so at a very early age, learning a foreign language is an eye-opening experience. :D

That's especially visible in sentence and phrase structure. Romanian has a very different sentence structure to English, and German is entirely different (although one can still see traces of the old Germanic word positioning in English, it evolved so much that it's its own category now).

Which evolved to its own category? English right? I'd like to learn German or Norwegian or something, but first I want to try to fluentize myself in Italian, so I'm gonna try reading and watching stuff in Italian in hopes I'll pick stuff up, and whenever the economy gets good my dad wants to take us to Italy, we've been saying so for years but crap always happens.

Physics professor draws a vector for a force (F), acting on object A, and it was the force of gravity (G). Hilarity ensues.

Heh, I did mine last semester as part of my Bio class. The pigs had to be reused as part of the practical exam, and I don't think the prof would have liked if it if that happened.

University bureaucracy computer problem deprived me of slightly over a hundred and fifty dollars' worth of food, and I couldn't fix it over the weekend because their offices were closed.

Usually at work potlucks, her dishes are the first to go because they're usually the best. Today she provided chicken lasagna, veggie lasagna, veggie lasagna, salmon, cabbage rolls, couscous salad, and a couple homemade cakes. And that's just the stuff she made. There were also some chips and pita and dips and veggie platters and fruit platters and dessert platters (brownies, date squares, nanaimo bars, etc). Definitely made up for the lack of turkey dinner over the weekend (Canadian Thanksgiving).

Yay! Bon anniversaire :D

Looks like I might have some more time in which to revise and do problem sheets this year, which is a welcome bonus, considering the various messes I got myself into last year.

Happy birthday Randomnerd10! :bday:
Thank you. I was hoping for a thread, but at this rate, I'll have a thousand posts by 2012, so by then I should have the prerequisite for prominence.

I have an 85 in my Careers course, and a 92 in my Academic History course. Awesome :D
Plus, I won the French award in my grade.

my Academic History course.
Is this like historiography or is it some dressed-up way to say regular old history?

Uhm... University level history? I am not sure what they called it in the high-school you were from...

Aren't you like 15? Why would you be offered a university level class already?

In America if they're giving university credits for a high school course it usually has "AP" or "IB" tacked on in front of it. World, Canadian, Modern, what kind of history?

Kay, you know how you have two different course choices? Well here, grade 9's and 10's have the choice between "Applied" and "Academic". Academic being the smarter, Applied being the slower. In grade 11 and 12, it changes to "College" and "University". University being the smarter, College being the slower.

If that made any sense :confused:

EDIT AT DACHS - AP, Canadian.

My school had three choices, regular, honors, and AP.

After years of hemming and hawing, I have finally sent in a grad school application. Now, I just have to hope I get accepted and come up with a way to pay for it . . .

I just submitted the last of my grad school application today as well!

Where did you apply to?

I feel a bit down :(

This counts as a rave because I'm only feeling sad, not suicidal.

The mere idea of making Butters a pimp was enough to keep me giggling for ten minutes.

Catholic University, for Library Science for Spring '10. It was actually a last minute decision, I finally decided to go ahead and do library science, and they are the only school in the DC area with a program that starts in the spring. Depending on how my wife's application to George Mason works out, if I don't make it I can apply other places for later semesters.

Got two books from my gf for my birthday....which was awesome and rumtastic. Also got a 4 in robotics which has a hard ass professor.

It would seem the gods in a fit of mercy have made a cosmic shift for the duration of the day and allowed me fun. Hooraay.

The going away parties are starting. :) Funny how sometimes you don't realize where you stand with people until it's time to leave.

Day off today! :D

I turned the TV on to my default 'there's nothing else on' channel of National Geographic (HD, of course) to find a couple episodes of a show covering "Britain's greatest machines." The host? It took me a minute to figure out that it was Arnold Rimmer (Chris Barrie) - I'm not used to seeing him without the H on his forehead and not whining. :lol:

Rave: A friend of mine who does an awful lot of drugs is surprisingly still alive after the last year and a half.
Rant: I now owe him ten dollars.
Rave: He probably doesn't remember.
