In which I praise my university

I felt a bit stink after my last post. Mainly because there are some cool things about my university that I should mention.

The IT team,  perhaps not totally unskilled, are very helpful if you ask questions or need help with something (that they actually know the answer to, anyway). In fact, one staff member even went out of his way to find a better image of the university logo for me to use on a poster. They’ll come over and fix printers usually as soon as you call them (and come on, it’s not their fault the printers don’t work, printers will be printers). Although sometimes you ask a question and they reply a day or two later. … read more

The Liebster Award

The Liebster Award is given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. So, what is a Liebster? The meaning: Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome. Isn’t that sweet? Blogging is about building a community and it’s a great way to connect with other bloggers and help spread the word about newer bloggers/blogs.
Nellie tagged me in this at the beginning of July. I was in Auckland and having a lovely break from updating my amazingly popular blog (huehuehue). But I’m now back home in Christchurch, and I’ve just remembered about this tag! The following questions are what Nellie asked of her taggee’s (?):

  • Describe yourself/your life in the form of a mid-2000s Fall Out Boy song title.
    We’re doing title of the song, not lyrics, right? Sugar, we’re going down Maybe it’s not related but I always feel like I’m going down. Man I’m such a downer… argh, moving on.
  • Who is your favourite DC and/or Marvel villain?
    I always wanted to like comics and that kind of thing, but I never really did. Infact, I had to Google it incase I said something like Harry Potter (I know, I know). So, I guess I like the Joker. He’s the only villian I remember well enough, also, I like bad boys. Amiright?
  •  If you could study anything regardless of how much it’d cost and whether you meet the pre-requisites, what would it be?
    History. Hands down a millions times history. Anything pre Elizabethan era, any country, any race. I LOVE HISTORY.
  • What are the biggest stereotypes about people from your city/town?
    I live in Christchurch which is supposed to be the White Supremacist Capitol of New Zealand. This was recently disproved  (Can’t find article..)
  • What is your favourite kind of cheese? If you don’t like or can’t eat cheese, what do you eat that’s your “cheese replacement”?
    Camembert, Bree or if we’re having a BBQ, Hollumi. 🙂 Yum!
  • If you could change one thing about society at large, what would it be?
    Bullying.  I hate bullies so much. >.<
  • You have $200. You can only spend it in one non-department store (no Target, Walmart, Warehouse, Farmers etc.). Which store would you choose?
    MAC cosmetics.
  • If you could share a meal with someone who has passed away, who would it be and why?
    This is a tough one. I’d love to talk to family members and learn more of our history. But I also think Freddie Mercury would be cool. NO WAIT! Rik Mayall! Ah yes I bet that would be super fun! Can I have dinner with both of them?
  • Do you have a physical feature people tend to comment on when they first meet you? Does it bother you that people comment on it?
    No. But I used to get bullied a lot of my small eyes. Kids would see me and be like “what’s wrong with your eyes?”. It also happened once when I was 16. I cried. So yeah, it bothers me, but most people are adults about it.
  • What was your favourite toy or activity as a kid?
    I used to love playing monster tag or spot light at the school when it was dark. Other then that, I loved computers (we never had a very good one, and only got the internet when I was 15) and reading.
  • What kind of drunk are you? If you don’t drink, what kind of drunk do you think you’d be
    This is tough because I always have my head screwed on no matter what. When I do get drunk, I just become more open, but I still sensor myself to an extent (just a lesser extent I suppose).

    A non-professional movie review: Mad Max Furry Road

    I mainly like comedy movies, the only reason I went to see this one was because I made plan with Jared, and his friend who was going away for like, 4 months called and changed those plans. So I went along to this movie.

    It’s not a bad movie. I’m shit at reviews. Basically I’m writing this post because Dem Cars.

    It’s no secret I’m a bit of a bogan when it comes to cars and maybe even music (well, my music taste is wide). So when I saw these awesome rat rods on the opening scene I was like “Fuck yes!” read more

    Hi! A life update

    I don’t even know the last time I made a post, and I deleted all of my previous posts so I can’t even go and check.

    I’m at uni right now. (Both physically and… well, in life?). I have a year and half left, although next year will most likely be “part time”.  I’m still doing the BEMP at Lincoln Uni. It’s stressful. While I love learning, I hate the stress that comes along with it.

    A bit of an update? Well last year I was on University Challenge. I suppose that’s the most interesting thing that’s really happened lately. The videos are online and if you like, tweet me and I’ll DM you the links. 🙂 read more
