    Yes, friends, countrymen, and those-who-we-were-never-sure-about, i am no longer a Ballarat bogan!

    I now reside in the most glorious of places, Melbourne. Well, not melbourne, but 3.5ks from the CBD, so close enough.


    Um, yeah.


    Discuss.

    What part of Melbourne are you in? You may still be a bogan, albeit not a Ballarat one. ;)

    and more importantly, when you going to come out to the pub? I hear St Jeromes is live and kicking, but Pulsar was far too tight to turn up. Piker.

    Indeed. I'm not a melbourne bogan, in fact, i appear to be living in a yuppie/dink/young-and-gratuitiously-rich suburb: Kensington.

    Eh. Well the actual area is really nice but there appears to be a lot of 30 something proffessionals with no kids and too much time to spend on new clothes and interior design for my liking.

    And i'll come out with you whenever you please. Except i only have my passport as ID. Damn me and my slackness of getting Ls...

    Me? Piker? I was there on my own from the hours of 8-10pm wandering around and getting slightly tipsy! I even tried to convince the lovely barman to make some sort of Huggardic call across the speaker set up (sadly, the guy wouldn't listen to me and tried to fob me off onto his mates) So don't you go calling me tight, Monsieur le PoT! Also, going around asking people "Have you heard of this guy called Huggard?" is going to get you labelled as a whacked out religious nut.


    And Kensington eh? that is a little swank...

    Better than what PoT usually gets asked at the pub.

    seriously, one day your english teacher is going to put a restraining order on you, PoT.

    And swank is definately the word.

    Ahhh, Kensington... that suburb brings back memories, and so does that skate park.

    Congratulations Boogie, you're now officially walking distance from me (albeit, a fair walk). How's O Week going for you?

    walking distance? where is you?

    I walked home from some unnamed pub (at least, i can't remember it's name) on last night. Twas quite the walk, but i was well, um, fortified for the event.

    (perhaps that answers your o week question, Damir - how's yours?)

    I'm in North Melbourne, about 30-45 minutes walk from Kensigton :p

    Yeah, O week - a slab of free milk drunk in one day, nuff said.

    I'm not very much into this 'working for uni' business... they actually expected us to have done pre-reading?? Pfft.

    PS. Price of books = un-Christian, nay, un-Victorian.

    north melbourne? A mere stroll away! In fact my primary school merged with north melb PS during the hight of the kennet era (perhaps i should have mentioned i lived in kensington before moving to ballarat)

    Pre-reading? I laugh at them. Actually i don't think they actually expect us to do it, more humour to see who the really nerdy students are.

    And the price of books are un-christian; however, being an arts bum i only have to buy readers :p (that, and i have fridays off completely!)

    Who needs job prospects when you have 12 contact hours a week?


    Seriously though, you could be worse off. My friend is doing vetinary science and she has 40 contact hours a week. [face_plain]

    i agree, it's absolutely rediculous. Needless to say, she doesn't have a lot of time for socialising.

    And just think - far less time until the aptly named "Non-teaching period"!

    Hey, don't be dissing Old Arts. Coolest building on campus. Except for the time when all the hippies organised a "Day of Action" against the government's HECS reforms, and we couldn't go in for our lectures because there was a bomb threat or something. And then the mounted police came through the courtyard on their huge horses.

    Cursed hippies and protestors and leftist cultured types. Not the Proper Sort. The University of Melbourne should capture them and ship them off to Van Dieman's land.


    TBM, you aren't doing Medieval Europe by any chance, are you?

    Hey without the 'hippies' you'd probably be paying ten times more than you are already.


    And no, sorry JE, i'm not doing Medieval History. My first year history is USA Today... urm, and just for kicks, i'm also doing Media, Politics and Society, Modern Political Movements and Ideologies and Reason, Religion and Responsibility.


    However, i know someone who is doing Medieval History. Why did you ask?
