This blog has been created because I'm pissed off at my school here. This afternoon I tried to log onto a computer in the library to draft my fantasy hockey team in my pitt ultimate league. Of course, for no reason, when I log on there's some error message about my account being full in the H: Drive or something like that, so I have to walk back to my place, get my laptop, and bring it back. I get back with 10 minutes to spare, boot the thing up, and of course the draft only loads 95%. It never finishes that final 5%, and I'm left drafting Ovechkin number 1, I have a lineup full or Red Wings, I have a New York Ranger and TWO Bruins. The only saving grace is my d-line is pretty damn good, and I think Carey Price will be alright this year. But really, fuck the New Zealand university system.
First off, the computer labs suck. There's a 20-computer library which is usually always full. Not to mention the support guy working here knows far less than me, and he's actually asked me to help other people with a problem he couldn't figure out. I think it had something to do with double clicking on My Computer, and seeing that hey, there's the scanner. Fucking hard shit, there.
Now if I have to leave the library, I go to any of the labs which have no ventilation, are easily 15 degrees too hot, and make you feel sick after about 25 minutes in them.
The classes are boring as hell. They read straight from the powerpoint slides, which I guess is okay since all I have to do is grab the handouts and sneak out and I'm done with class for the day.
The dorm I'm staying in is somehow too low-class for even me. Paint's chipping off the walls, there was a cockroach in my room day 2 (who may have actually fled the assault of filth that I was about to bring), and for some reason when I touch this one metal corner (where the paint has chipped off), I get a shock in my arm. I don't know how to explain this. The light in my room stopped working, but it's a wiring problem, so I don't want them to try to fix it because it could only somehow get worse. Also, the elevators work about 40% of the time, and there's a security guard walking around at 9 on a Friday night telling us to turn our music down. I mean we're playing SingStar (like guitar hero karaoke), it's not that loud at all. Finally, our dorm is filled with unattractive Asians. Not a looker in the bunch.
Fuck Massey University.
