Whiney people taking stuff way too personally so I have to attempt to mediate and end up going to sleep over an hour later than intended. I can't wait till the time that I don't have to deal with these people.

I've been learning a couple of tunes, but the problem with my instrument is that it doesn't really have a 'discreet' mode for playing at night, and my sleep pattern has shifted again so I'm spending more time awake when everyone's asleep than usual... So what happens when I can't play a tune? It whizzes around my head constantly. It' driving me nuts. I need a midi melodeon...

Not only that, but I've got the end of a song or tune going over and over in my head. I can't remember where I heard it, what it's called, whether it's a tune or a song, none of the ABC transcript websites seem to know of its existence, youtube is no help and it's really fucking me off.

Bloody English trad folk with its irritatingly catchy, enjoyable melodies...
If it sounds good, listen to it

In continuation from this. I really love waking up at 3am to more fucking childish shit and then I spend an hour and a half trying to formulate a response that can't be taken as a personal fucking attack. I am so tired of all these people and can't wait to be fucking done with uni. I go to uni with a bunch of children. Joy.

Aye it is a fair bit of wonga, although I am constantly surprised by the amount of people I come across who have never had a passport.

The British passport office are wankers for how long they take to post it out to you as well unless you shell out for the faster delivery services. I know people here who consider themselves British but still opt for an Irish passport because it's cheaper and they don't keep you biting your nails if you have to renew it in time for a holiday :lol:

2 sides to everything i suppose. I've heard as many stories about having to ring them up because it's a week late as i have of them being on time.

Last time I got a passport was a couple of days before I flew out, and I'd managed to lose it. £106 for me to go to them and get the four hour service.

That reminds me I need to renew mine or they won't let me into Australia next year - could be problematic :P

my gammy leg is playing up, not risking missing work later by leaving the house before then, which unfortunately means missing 2 lectures. At least after tonight i'm off work til sunday, and will be hitting the books solid until then.
