    it's a worrying sign when you wake up feeling crap and you think to yourself 'no, I can't be ill, I don't have time'. I want to go back to bed but I have to write an essay about bloody sexual offences. Fun.

    Because it's hard, and it's lectured badly and the example sheets rely on me having done previous courses that were optional, or have badly written questions, and the subject matter is also incredibly boring. The only saving grace the course has is that it'll give me more options in the exam.

    Dropping it will give me a hell of a lot more time to work on the courses that didn't go too well last term though.

    What do you reckon I should get as "something interesting" for my friend's 18th at his house tonight? Something that tastes nice, and isn't too sophisticated for other teenagers to drink. Also that would be available in my local Morrisons. :p:

    Cointreau? It's orange liqueur/brandy. Both very alcoholic and quite nice with mixers.

    Hi!

    I just joined the society, I don't know if I should wait to be accepted before posting? But I don't know if I'll be informed about it when I become a member, so... :o:

    Should I tell something about myself? Well, I'm a 22-year-old bi (or pan) woman living in Finland. I've applied to UK to study Sociology, currently study in Helsinki Sociology and Gender Studies.

    And I'm jealous of the cider! Have nothing myself, except chocolate (which helps).

    Geometry. So it's about curved embedded surfaces and exotic metrics (ie metrics that change their definition of distance based on where you're measuring the distance etc). It's truly awful. And lectured badly. Did I mention it was lectured badly?

    Hmm, I shall investigate. Might be a bit too classy for some of my friends, though.

    Nah, joining the society doesn't seem to mean much other than a link next to your name (unless there's something I've missed :P. Welcome to the chat thread - we used to have a welcome poem, but I'm not sure anyone has that handily any more.

    Where've you applied to in the UK? Chocolate sounds good.

    Cider is good. I haven't eaten chocolate though in 5 and a half years.

    Sounds impossible to visualise

    Im still having trouble getting to grips with 3D vector geometry.

    Yeah it is pretty hard to visualise, and to some extent you need to, which is a *****. Usually in pure maths you need no intuition for objects/spaces involved, just an understanding of the rules. Not so for Geometry though.

    :tongue: Basically with vectors at degree level, you imagine it in 3D and then if it works just prove it for 3D then swap '3' for 'n'. 2D things don't come up very often, sadly.

    :hugs: That sounds horrible. I don't really know much about it, but it sounds like it wouldn't be too bad if you dropped it. You'd get more time to focus on other parts of the course without having to work doubly hard on this course because it's lectured badly etc.
