I have acquired a study lamp, it's just sitting there, mocking me

I've received pretty good grades for my essays thus far but the teacher is not giving any feedback so what's the point, how am I supposed to improve

I am eating the speed now to prevent nosebleeds, maybe I'll get a stomach ulcer instead

I think that's the right attitude, worth a shot at least, what have you got to lose? Gotta stick it to the man, like in 1605 when Francis Bacon criticised the stagnant scholarly circle-jerk that simply produced pedestaled snobs who just re-reinterpreted the same old shit u know (I just read about this some 5 min ago but I am pretending to know things already like a true academic dickhead); he didn't make a name for himself by being a b*tch, he made weird ass paintings instead and became a rock star. Maybe you can be that painter but in 3 dimensions, turn that virtual safe space into a literal hellscape. What would you like to do your PhD about?

I haven't criticised anything because I don't really know anything

Alright so the first study period is over, I've been doing alright, got a few excellent grades and one decent enough, getting the hang of it. Not super interested in the current courses but that's fine. I like that most courses are only about 2 months long so you won't get too bored with them.

I've also found a decent balance between study and work. Started thinking of doing a study exchange in East Asia, we'll see.

I don't think this is a very interesting diary because I'm mostly just sitting around at home, reading a bunch of shit and occasionally writing a bunch of shit as well, so not very different from my usual daily routine. At least Kashluk was practicing killing and stuff. My goal is to graduate before the DAC upgrade

Life is pretty boring

Thank you!

They've got a bunch of courses on world religions and eastern thought / philosophy, and I happen to like stuff like buddhism and daoism and zenbois like Dogen and Ryokan, Beyblade, all that. But who cares about any of that, the main reason would be to get the fuck away from here for a bit, a change of environment would be good I think

Ah yes, a good goal to seek new horizons. I intend on starting doing the same within a year or so.

This week I prepared for today's test by getting drunk and doing lots of drugs on Monday, then watching Netflix and YouTube videos for the rest of the week. I think it went really well, maybe even too well, I think I might be a genius of some sort.

First semester is over, my grade average was 4.7 out 5 so guess I'm not as dumb as I look. I had the hoax virus over the holidays and moved to a cheap flat offered by the uni, it's pretty nice, still settling in. Everyone is getting down with the sickness so all teaching is still on the Internet for the time being. School started today, I'm taking on a bit less work for this school period so I can relaxx to the maxx, I've been tired all the time after covid. I have the spring semester planned out pretty much, I just realized I'll have like a 3 month summer break which is insane. Peace!

quick update, got rid of putting pressure on myself, went to the other extreme really but that's due to a variety of reasons, some of which are very much speculative at this point. so yeah school is going badly, but it's all right I'll just go back to doing speed for a few weeks and take care of all the school work that I have missed, doesn't matter as long as I just pass the courses and get the credit. easy :blahblah:

^^^ the post above is the new post, just means the older one is gone

Right now I'm probably barely passing the ongoing courses, as the only thing I've done has been attending the lectures (and skipping some of those as well), so D, D- maybe? Doesn't really matter though if I am able to put in a substantial amount of work in a short period of time, which I can do, on drugs. I wonder if Kashluk did Pervitin during his military service?

I have one more week of lectures and then after that a few weeks to study and wrap things up so should be doable. Then a long summer vacation, thinking of taking at least one summer course because why not, there are loads of courses that are graded pass/fail and are super easy
