So, I’m back!
By popular demand! Errr 1 person… Hi Kirsty!
I haven’t been on here for quite some time and it was probably for the better, but oh well. I guess I just like to talk about myself too much to handle the separation.
I have been busy. Not busy in the interesting busy- but the continuous and never letting up load of law work-busy. I left tumblr so I could focus on all my essays as I had like 6 of them to do, and wanted them to be good. It paid off. I got an 85% on one of them which is a double first, so yay me. I am quite smugface about that, because I worked hard as fuck and destroyed my brain by the end of it. Sadly my brain is still destroyed so I’m afraid that high mark will have to be my only achievement in life.
I’ve been feeling bad and guilty since yesterday about this thing that happened in my discrimination tutorial. We were split into groups to argue two opposing arguments about a certain case involving manifestations of religion, and were expected to divide our arguments into an introduction, conclusion and two arguments and were to each speak about one section for 5 mins. Just want to point out that this was an unexpected on the spot thing and we weren’t given much time to co-ordinate and decide. Plus we were given the side that is completely contrary to my own opinion. None of this really mattered and we weren’t too bothered and were just having a laugh about it all but I’m just using it to demonstrate why our group didn’t give the most polished and cohesive argument.
But when the other group started they were so well put together, and we were so crap compared to them that I started to laugh. Not particularly audibly, more of a snigger (which unfortunately can be interpreted either way). But the girl opposite me who was speaking at the time noticed and gave me such a look saying ‘What the fuck is your problem?’. I couldn’t respond obviously as she was talking and we were in the middle of our debate, so I wasn’t sure if I should carry on smiling to show there were no hard feelings or completely stop and look away and blank her. I think I did a mixture of the both. But I’ve just been feeling so bad about this ever since because she must think I’m such a bitch now. She obviously thought I was laughing at her and what she was saying, when really I was laughing at how good they were in comparison to us. I don’t really know her so I couldn’t explain to her afterwards and that would be awkward anyway. I know it’s not that much of a big deal, but I’ve felt so guilty about it because I try to be a nice, kind person and her expression was just utter pissedoffness. So now I will forever be that ginger cow in discrimination.
Wow, cool story bro.
I have been up to other stuff lately as well, what with my career and sorting out life plans and such but I will bore you with those at a later date. I have bored myself now.
I’m a dick
And I left my new phone that I’ve had for less than 3 weeks on the train today. It’s extra annoying because I refused the 4 weeks free insurance because I knew I would never phone up to cancel it but if I hadn’t I would have been sorted. Plus I never lose phones, so why this one which was actually quite nice and fancy, apart from the fact that I despised texting with it.
Had an interesting discrimination and law lecture though. I’ve been looking at alternative careers with a law degree the past few days and as the police aren’t really recruiting now because of all the cuts, maybe I could get a job with a charity or organization which supports something I actually believe in. As some kind of legal adviser but unqualified or doing research for something like the Equality and Human Rights Commission. Now I would really find that interesting.
Something to think about.
