I'm finally done with painting all the fucking planks. Seriously, whichever serf came up with "work makes you nobler" was a colossal coping retard.
Now the only thing left to do is for my father to partially assemble the damn thing and then we can transport it to the site and be done with it after we properly assemble it there.
I'd really prefer if he'd assemble it today, because he's wasting entire days with this bullshit for me. Getting paid would also be nice.
The weird thing about physical labour is that while your hand is occupied, your mind isn't, so as you mechanically complete the tasks, your mind wanders freely from one subject to another through association.
It kind of feels like as if my brain was hyper-active and couldn't turn off.
Yesterday I stayed up until midnight to book an appointment for the enrolment procedure. (Basically I just have to go there and sign a contract with the university)
Other departments had pre-made alphabetical lists for students, but the Humanities department decided that everyone should book one individually during this week.
So I stayed up until the system was open, booked a date for the first day at 9 o' clock and then went to bed.)
The thing that astonishes me the most is simply how enormous universities are. The sub-department I'm going to has like ~400 people, but it still has a library with 40k volumes. That's 10k more we had at high school.
Digitally too. The whole infrastructure is sprawling. I think I've visited like 6-7 domains so far as I was looking for information.
It's fun. I'm having fun with it. It's all new and exciting.
(Except for the 10-20 pages long documents that they publish and you have to know to go through the administrative procedures.) (Also Da Rules
is a 300 pages long legal text.)
It feels like as if I were a simple barbarian encountering civilized lands for the first time.
I'm currently being a creep and looking through the facebook-pages of my classmates to see where they'll go to study. I'll have on classmate attending the same department and a good 4-5 the same university.
I guess I just want to stroke my over-inflated ego just a bit more. >>45111
If I remember correctly Stanford also has a similar site for ancient Greek texts.
Thanks for the link btw. Didn't know about this.
(Though I know that most classical stuff is available at https://ctext.org/
It'll probably come in handy during uni.
