Introduction

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.

Well you arrogant little prick you are obviously some rasist little fucker. You complain about new zealand then why the fuck go there retard? The food is great thank you very much and what food do you have in america? mc Donalds and KFC. Real classy stuff. And really? Sports? Who the fuck cares about hokey and doesn't like rugby. And american football. Thats a pussy sport. Those guys have freaking mattreses on them. Now rugby is a real contact sport. Just in general fuck you go fuck yourself and just fuck you. Seriously you made me make an account just to say this so I hope I made it clear.

Also I would like to say that you think Gallic football is awesome because a guy got hurt but played on. HAve you even realized that in rugby you get the shit beaten out of you. There is a famous NEW ZEALAND rugby player that got his testicle ripped of on the field, got it sowed back on and ten minutes later kept on playing. You fucking try doing that. See how you handle the fucking pain.

Nice. Totally agree with screw you. He has a massive point! New Zealand is the best place on earth! America just have KFC and McDonalds so that's why pretty much 60-80% are far.

You are obviously some poor SOB who has no drive, nor our brilliant Kiwi ingenuity, or you wouldn't be having a problem. Try living on one of our farms for a week. Your dorm would seem like paradise. Welcome to the country of hard work.

Few years ago flew over from the U.S. to take a motorcycle tour with a couple buddies, one of whom had recently relocated to NZ. Yeah, lotsa nice scenery, especially in the South Island, but was less than impressed with the stratospheric cost of everything, not to mention that most of the trip was spent riding in the bloody rain! Geez, even Seattle gets more sun than this place (and way less wind too)! Otherwise was OK, but overall, the architecture, food, politics, design, television, etc.. seemed disappointingly "naive" and backward somehow. It's like underneath the modern veneer (when you can find it), the whole culture seems sorta stuck in time, like a polynesian version of Cornwall, England (circa 1950)!

Yup, Massey University SUCKS! It is a fucking joke. The resources are shit, the students are 2nd priority to research as far as Massey is concerned. They seem to forget that students are PAYING for the papers. Hopeless communication with students, no consistency of resources, fucktard lecturers and tutors, out-of-date material, grammatical errors, spelling errors, wrong page numbers, lazy, arrogant cunts. No wonder the Education standard in NZ is so low compare to other countries. Here I was, with this idealistic view of "University". That everything would be top-notch and run by people who really know what they're doing. No. Much worse than I ever could have imagined (or believed). Tutors and lecturers with no teaching training being pumped up by the few sycophant students who bother to fill in the course feedback forms. How the hell they get away with this shit I do not know, but the place is a JOKE (not funny).
