Bone of contention Number 1 - University

So I am back at university just now, and it is already going to kill me. I am falling asleep in class already. ROFL. But thats just me, I am always tired and when they pull out the introductory shit again I just blank out - come on most people in the electives are in years 3 and above, they know this stuff! STFU!

I am in two minds on whether or not to continue with Intellectual Property. IP is a very demanding subject and the lecturer is weird. He is really apathetic one day, and so full of emotion the next - narky at those who ask stupid questions and ecstatic at the ones he feels ask good questions, which by the way, were so goddamn obvious that I did not need the question to be asked or even referred to. 

Also being back to uni means being back to those friends. The friends you only see at uni - some you try to keep in contact with over holidays, and those you are happy to not keep in contact with. Maybe being ignored by the first is karma payback for you not catching up with the second group. I don't know, theres some friendships you know will always be university related and thats it. And both sides are happy with that, but theres others that are kind of in this friendship limbo. Weird.

Also when uni friends bring what I so lovingly call High school politics and tactics into friendships, its so much easier to cut them off. Grow the fuck up, leave the name calling the ignoring, the talking to someone as a last resort at high school and just be a friend or not. Simple.

Bone of contention Number 2 - Harry potter leak. DO.NOT.WANT

I AM IGNORING THE NET, I AM IGNORING THE NET, I AM IGNORING THE NET. Currently I am not going on myspace, or on LJ communities except Aus MCRmy and chemicalromance, in fear of having this thing ruined for me. I cannot have this ruined for me. Why would anyone want to try to ruin it this close to getting the book in their hot little hands. This completely escapes me. I hate reading PDF's on the internet, this is reading photographs - killer on the eyes, but still people are doing it. Imagine even having to photograph 759 pages and upload them. Fucking ridiculous.
Oh and America is the source of another leak ... again. Some distributor sent copies to over 1200 customers. Yeah, because the large letters on the box stating when the box can be contractually opened is a real killer to understand.

OMFG!!! IP was my FAVOURITE subject at uni! If I was ever to actually use my law degree then IP is the area I want to get into. However, I find that working in marketing I use my IP knowledge on a daily basis... or rather I tell people the law and they ignore me and breach trademark, copyright and passing off law.

And I'm with you on the HP thang... I had to begin my anonq hiatus the other day thanks to someone telling me that X kills Y... I could have killed someone!

IP sounds really interesting, but as it is property law it will be more demanding and of course more expansive due to the internets and such. But its something I want to do so I gotta hang in there! Its good to know someone did it and enjoyed it - I hate being bagged with hate talk about subjects.

Ergh anonquestions. I havent been on in a week for fear for that. I cannot believe some people, its just sheer rudeness. Last book ever, that should be worth something. If I were you I would have been on a rampage.

I may have been spoiled for something by a fake Eliza Cuts on mcrumorcontrol. A FAKE ELIZA CUTS. WTF? I'm hoping it was a fake spoiler, because I seriously hate being spoiled for things.
