I have burnt myself out.
10 exams, 13 days, most of them hard… can't be good. I've slept, and now I sit in my room with only the quiet hum of the CPU fan to comfort me. I'd already lost my interest in work, and now it seems I have lost my passion for life.
This is what lead poisoning must feel like. Quiet, lonely and warm in the heady atmosphere of pointless endevours. I can't even write about my day.. well I could:
- Got up
- Played Civ3 for hours
- Wrote on my blog
I guess I'll go and shower. Or eat. Yeah, eat.

I'm starting to think I hate my course. It's always miffed me, but now it seems like I am growing a passionate distain for everything to do with it.
- Computer Scientists
- All the maths
- Badly taught lectures
- Badly organised modules
- Strangely chosen exams
- A handful of ugly, dishevelled lecturers with a distain for students
- A building that's not as nice as the maths department
- Exam timetable
- A course that tries to cater for so many people it's guarenteed to irritate everyone
- The directionless nature of CS
- 100% FOFO instruction method
That is all
Computer science has taken my interest in computing and dropped it from a great height, so that it falls and shatters, mixing with the remnents of my broken dreams. If they ask me to resit this year, I'm very likely not to be a University student next year – I don't think the pain of my course is worth the bit of paper at the end.
I have gone from liking the idea to disliking my course, to disliking everything involved with my course, to disliking computer scientists, to disliking computers. I want to get my own restaurant or something now. Even then, I'll cringe when I have to use the LCD till.
I should have done Flower Studies or something.
