Whisky really doesn't agree with me... Bleh... Not drinking any more of that stuff today... Anyhow, had a brief social drink with various people down the pub after the exam, which was nice. But it was for Ebs leaving, so.... Anyhow, he's gone now - and I'm bloody upset. Gah... Life sucks when one of your best friends who you've just lived with for the past year has to go back to live in another country :o(

Anyhow, I've been kinda lost lately, for one reason or another, but I think I'm OK now, within reason. All my hard exams are out of the way, and I got this mail:
To progress to year two you must obtain 30% overall in your maths exams (i.e.you do not have to pass every individual course). If you fail to achieve 30% overall, you will be offered the opportunity to resit those exams that you failed (i.e. all those below 30%) in September and the pass mark is the same 30% OVERALL.
And I know I've managed that, so woohoo, I'm clear for going into next year.

Anyway, there are two things guaranteed to help me when I'm feeling all lost. The first is El Viaje Misterioso de Nuestro Jomer...
Fear not, Homer. I am your spirit guide.
Hiya.
There is a lesson you must learn.
If it's about laying off the insanity peppers, I'm way ahead of you.
I speak of a deeper wisdom. The problem, Homer, is that the mind is always chattering away with a thousand thoughts at once.
Yeah, that's me all right
Clarity is the path to inner peace.
Wish I had a damned Coyote spirit guide, that'd be nice... Anyway, the point is, that particular episode of the Simpsons is very therapeutic - the hallucination sequence is just beautiful, and the overall message is nice. Some big spiritual quest to find something you knew all along.... I've sort of been on one of those lately, but it'll be sorted soon.

Anyhow, the other thing that sorts me out is Fight Club - watching that film is always very good for me. It's oh so very relevant to me (as various people keep telling me), and there are moments that just reach out and slap me in the face. That film is responsible for all my rather more radical beliefs lately - the fervor with which I am now against the concept of money (and specifically the accumulation of money), the way in which I frequently attack society, all these things are down to Fight Club... It made me grow up quite a bit, seeing that film, I guess... ho hum... Watched Blade Runner too, but only for the opening music... Ho hum...

Anyhow, back to eating lunch and revising for my exam tomorrow...

Have no fear James. You are very unlikely to actually accumulate money (other than in the negative) for some time.

In the meantime, pseudo-accumulation in order to repay debts is allowed :-)
