Had to get up a half hour early this morning to attend a "mandatory" house meeting at 8am. *grumble* None of us knew what it was about, but we figured that we must be in trouble for something. Ha. Apparently the other night a security guard saw/smelled 4 students passing around a bong on our patio, but because of our high fence he couldn't get a good look at them and for some reason he didn't call the police. The person talking to us reminded us that if we're caught using/possessing drugs we will be immediately deported, and she said the people who were out there are VERY luck that the security guard didn't call the cops.
Apparently they were considering searching all our rooms, but decided against it for some reason or another. It's a good thing, too, since about 75% of the rooms here contain alcohol (not mine), which is banned from the campus residences starting this semester. That wouldn't been INTERESTING... I really don't care one way or the other if people want to smoke pot, but I mean..c'mon...don't do it out where the security guards are going to see you!
meh...i'm just in a crappy mood tonight. I went to the beach (just missed the sunset) and spent some time reflecting. I've come to realize that I need to get my shit together. I'm definitely behind in almost all my classes, and it's only 4 weeks into the school year. Thankfully I think I have time to try and redeem myself.
I'm a little worried about history, because we have a major group paper due next week on Friday (3500 words--35% of my grade) and my group has yet to begin. At least we've got a topic. *sigh* I have an econ midterm on monday...I'm not too horribly worried about it, but I definitely need to do alot of studying for it this weekend. I've been a good girl...read 2 chapters already tonight.
I don't want to sound too obsessive about my grades or anything, I mean, I am in Australia and should enjoy myself while I'm here. However, it's going to be next to impossible to get as good of a gpa while I'm here due to their grading system, and I don't want to fuck myself over any further. I'm just afraid that the rest of the students from my school are going to think that I don't want to go out and socialize and whatnot...I mean, they rarely ask me to join them as it is.
*sigh* Okay...I've taken a long enough break from my reading. Time to get back to good ol' macroeconomics.
