Yesterday I was too angry to blog….
So yesterday, we started our City and Guilds First “coursework” section… we got given the brief… and then tons of help and told to be on our way. Busy working away, when someone places their usb stick into their computer and infects every computer on our mini-classroom network with virus. FUN.
After spending forever trying to remove the virus on each computer (with it coming back) I eventually pulled the plug out my machine and worked “offline”.
During the morning, I had got a large wadge of work done… which when I returned from after lunch was missing. FML
So I set about trying to re-do the work and dodge viruses. I was convinced it was on the class server… but our tutor wouldn’t have it. Eventually as the goal posts of our work got changed, and changed and changed, and I got more and more and more annoyed (I’m not gonna bore you with details of copying tables and not copying tables etc) it became time to go home…. but it was 3.30… Thanks for that early hour!!!
This morning I ventured on the tube as always from high barnet… as Finchely central we waited for 10 minutes… and I got impatient and stood up to see what was going on…. I needed to change trains to a bank branch one at some point….Eventually we left, and I was left squished up by the door…. this train got busier and BUSIER and BUSIER until one man decides the way to get on…. is to barge onto the train…. He did this forcing people to practically get inside one-another and created room behind him for 4 more people to try and cram their way in. IDIOTS.
Imagine me now.. squished tight into a carraige with a man so close he is practically drinking the tea out my mug with my limns squished into some poor short womans face…. the last thing I need as the next station is for the doors to open on the other side and for some stuck up lady to scream ” Could you lot MOVE DOWN so I can get on”.
Being in a shoddy Squished mood I decided she deserved a loud reply of “If we move anymore down love we will be out on the tracks.” Most of the carraige smiling… she waited for the next train.
When I did finally move train I perched on one of the end seat things… by the doors which go between the carraiges… during my few stops on the second train… a rather overweight man decides he is going to JOIN ME ON THE SEAT and squeezes his fat bum into the tiny gap…. Subtly I did the elbow thing… with no avail through his rolls of fat…. evenually, one large jab… pretending to be really into my music and he was up… THANK G-D!!
Today’s City and guilds entailed me finishing off yesterday’s mess, dodging more viruses and getting told off for talking even though my hand had been up, and he had said my name and invited me to talk -.-
Handing the assignment in, with the tutor having looked over it… he told me I was well on the way for a distinction. WOO
Tomorrow is my last day at the Course for 3 weeks… Roll on work next week!!
