    Eh, I haven't turned up in 2 and a half weeks now. I'm going to my 11 o clock one though, and then I have a meeting with my personal tutor :erm:

    :afraid:

    I'm thinking about changing course. :erm:
    wowow 2.5 weeks! :eek3:

    what to?!


    i don't feel like going to any of my lessons today, i'm too behind for them to be useful anyway :emo: so i'll just read

    i might go to maths though. we're doing differential equations :coma:

    Computing.
    Though there is a 'maths and mathematical computing' course which is basically maths where in my third year I do all computing modules. So technically I only have to stick out pure maths another year and a bit. It's just how well I'll do at that :erm: I don't want to end up with a 2:2 tbh, or even worse, a 3rd.

    Need to start working a lot harder :emo:

    well my mechanics teacher, he just seems to go through questions (questions we're meant to be doing ourselves) really quickly, and i don't get how he does it at all, so i just sit in his lessons, doing nothing basically :emo:

    Yeah, mockel said it gets harder in the second year :erm:

    But then first year doesn't really count for much so it doesn't matter *that* much if I screw it up.

    Yeah, but things other than banking, I don't have to worry about for another year or two. :proud:

    I'd settle for a civilian air traffic control but apparently they won't have someone with OCD either :erm:

    I think it's along the lines of their duty of care - people with no problems at all can come back from tours with PTSD, let alone someone with a predisposition to mental problems :erm:

    That and there's more to it than perfectionism
