My university has a noticeboard where students post ads if they want to buy or sell something. Before all the college parties, the board goes wild with people who wants to get a ticket to the party. If you stand in line to buy a party ticket, they cost around $12 but if it’s a popular party you’ve got to cue for like 4 hours or an entire night to make sure you get one. The longest I cued was 10 hours, and I had a class afterwards. Anyhow, tonight the notice board is overflowing with ads from people competing for tickets. It’s actually pretty fun. Some girls started posting ads like “Two really hot girls looking for some extra tickets!”, which made other student follow suit and post stuff like “Two hideous guys looking for tickets”, “Three completely normal massmurdering Fritzl-wannabes looking for tickets”, “It’s my birthday, PLEASE sell me a ticket”, “I lost my ticket while drunk and threw a potato at my friend’s ballsack, need a new ticket”. One guy is offering 400% the original price, which is just fucked up. A ticket just covers the entrance fee to the party area, and while I love our student parties it’s never worth paying 50$ for just getting in! WTH man.

I’m studying sign language again at school. I took a course in Swedish sign language three years ago and I still remember some stuff, but I’ve hardly used it since. After today’s lessons I know how to sign “I love my tiny, cheeky, nude, beige cat”.

I found out yesterday that I’ve been placed in a desolate little town an hour outside Stockholm for my next internship. I have to be there for three weeks, and probably live in some type of hostel during that time. On the bright side, it’s right by the coast and the internship is during the middle of may to the beginning of June, which is nice.

I sometimes feel like the teachers at my school are too kind when they grade us. Occasionally, like during the last assignment, they were very picky and asked some students to correct their work 5 times before they were satisfied. I figured since the last exam was pretty tough more people would fail than usual, but it turns out only 2 out of 30 did. I’m not a person who is overly ambitious and I haven’t gotten great grades on exams until now, which is why I think the teacher was ridiculously nice when she corrected my newest exam and gave me 50 points out of 54. The hell? I did study more than usual to this exam, but I’m still a bit of a slacker who definitely shouldn’t get almost full score.
