The second week of studying has come and gone with mixed moments of "wtf am I studying I feel so dumb" and "...but that's so easy, why don't you people understand this? :|" and I'm loving most of my professors.

Prof. Buls who teaches mathematical logic is hilarious. He likes to exaggerate and I am moving to the front of the class next lesson because this time I ended up in the back with my friends and they were distracting me with irrelevant stuff.

On the job front, things are still slow. I've had a few interviews, two of which were waitress-masquerading-as-escortgirl, one actual waitress position in a night bar, staff for a copy centre, and I have another meeting scheduled for tomorrow evening which, I suspect might be a yet another escort girl-seeking place. Nobody else seems to like students.

'kay, now I'm off to bed. Or actually, to settle in with a book on mathematical logic which is kinda-sorta-not-mandatory-except-when-it-is. Opening it made me rage incessantly because some idiot had pencil-marked the text, underlining lines and words and just aslkfhakjsdhfksad. BUY A BOOK AND DO WHAT THE SHIT EVER YOU WANT WITH IT. DON'T WRITE IN BOOKS YOU GET FROM THE LIBRARY, YOU FUCKING DIPSHITS.

'kay, I'm done. It's just... people who write in books and fold page corners make me angry.

...and on things that make me angry - I can't even fully describe how much I hate it when people, upon learning that I've studied Japanese, go "ching shau kua chong, yeah?" (or any other supposedly-Chinese sounding gibberish) and on my polite "No, that would be Chinese. I'm learning Japanese." respond with "Oh? So what is the difference between them, really?"
That makes me fume. Like, angry volcano fume. It's the same as asking what's the difference between English and French, or English and German. Or Italian and Spanish. Why is it that nobody ever asks the same question when they hear that somebody is learning, say, German? Why is it always this critically disbelievingly don't-really-wanna-know tone reserved for asking for a differences-breakdown between Chinese and Japanese. >:|
Next time somebody asks me this question, I plan to answer with a "stupid foreigner isn't that bright, huh?" in Japanese, delivered with a smile.

And now I'm off to settle down with a book and an eraser in an attempt to tackle math logic while cleaning the pages. 8D
