grrrr

Phew

That was a week that flew past way too quickly, and dragged on way too slowly, all at the same time, eesh. Proposal is done and in, presentation dates are signed up for, finance quiz is over and done, yada yada yada. Look how school wreaks havoc on your sense of time.

Speaking of which: so, had class today. Now, while it's billed as a 3-hour class, it never actually goes for three hours... just as well, since traveling home by bus is an hour long... and most of that hour is of the standing-and-waiting-for-the-bus-on-cold-dark-creepy-street-corners variety. Anyway, it also makes the class seem very not worthwhile to go to, since today's lasted about an hour and fifteen.

I spent it wanting out, because in the midst of the teacher's discussion of the upcoming report that needs writing, he said these magical words:

"Use of American English will be considered typos."

(All right, so it's paraphrased slightly, I snapped to attention at about the time where he said "if you write c-o-l-o-r, that's a typo." And typos, I shall also add, are worth -5% per infraction.)
