That looks like Hell on earth (you still having classes this week?)

daz says:

It IS hell on earth. And yes, I do. In fact, my last class ends tomorrow at 10am. :( And they resume on Jan 2nd, 10am. :(

I get angry when people tell me that attending university is not "real life". What the fuck is it supposed to be then?

I have classes. I have to study. I have to do homework. I do not, EVER, sleep unitl noon. I hardly go out at all, and not only due to lack of funds. I do have quite a lot of committments.

Now what exactly makes my life any less "real" than yours?

WHOA THERE!! i have just graduated and i know what a differenc it is from going to uni, to working full time, thanks very much i do understand how hard uni is actually! i didnt go out as i had to stay in uni doing work untill 7-8 oclock at night, i had to earn money so i had a part time job as well as all the studying i have found that it is Very different working full time than going to uni, you cannot say that its the same untill you have done it!

22nd Dec 2005, 16:18

daz says:

Fine then.

(What makes you think I've never worked full time, though? It may only have been a couple of months, but it WAS fulltime.)

22nd Dec 2005, 16:25

ok then but then surly you know its different?

22nd Dec 2005, 16:28

daz says:

Yes, and I actually prefer it.

I'm sorry, this is just a HUGE peeve of mine... "different" != "not real"

22nd Dec 2005, 16:30

thats ok i used to hate it when people said all that crap about students.

Geodyne says:

Agreed. By those standards, I don't live in the real world either, as an academic. Yet I worked in the "real world" (or as real as hospitality can get, anyway) for years. I work as hard now as I did then - possibly more.

(I'm not picking on you here in any way, bmal)

22nd Dec 2005, 16:42

daz says:

Oh, backwards lamb = bmal? I missed that.

And you worked in hospitality, Geodyne? I didn't know that, either! :)

22nd Dec 2005, 16:47

well thats ok but im just saying that the comparison to uni and working in a full time job, is different, you finnish uni a week before christmass and dont start back untill after new year (generally) and in my job i have to work up untill tomorrow i get christmas eve christmas day and boxing day off thats it, then new years day and eve off thats it, that is my comment about uni and work, not the amount of work!

22nd Dec 2005, 16:48

daz says:

xmas holidays usually go from christmas eve till Jan. 6th, but Mainz uni feel they're special and only give us a week off, that's all _I_ was saying. ;)

And yes, in pretty much every job you have to work between the years, unless you take off work. ;)

In fact, my mum has to work from christmas eve 9am till christmas day 9am. Beat that. ;)

Geodyne says:

Nine years as a chef in resorts and tourist towns, daz. Also the perfect job to work your way through uni. Study by day, cook by night. ;-)

bmal: You work in a barbaric place. They ought to be giving you the whole of next week off. (I'm only working one day next week, and that through choice.)

22nd Dec 2005, 16:53

im not saying that uni is easy, but when i went and indeed they still do get from the monday just gone till the 6th , i know in most jobs you have to work beetween crimbo and new years thats what im saying,! its different from when your at uni! oh and lets not get started on sumer holidays :)

22nd Dec 2005, 16:55

when i was at uni i had to work christmas day untill 1 and new years eve untill 3in't mornig, but that was a pub so i was asking for it really

22nd Dec 2005, 16:57

Geodyne says:

Heh. You ought to have studied in the southern hemisphere. They get 2-3 months off for their xmas hols. ;)

Edited to say: yeah, I worked a lot of xmas days as well. I loved it - double-time-and-a-half!

22nd Dec 2005, 16:57

thats just not fair

kostika says:

Hmm...I need to find a way to go back to school and still pay my bills....

22nd Dec 2005, 16:59

that would be the best of both worlds i loved studying

22nd Dec 2005, 17:00

daz says:

Oh, wow, I didn't know you were a chef, Geodyne! Cool! :D

22nd Dec 2005, 17:02

Geodyne says:

I'd go back and become a permanent student in a heartbeat if I could manage it. I love learning new stuff.

I'd be very happy if I never had to sit another exam, though.

22nd Dec 2005, 17:02

oh exams bast*rd exams!

22nd Dec 2005, 17:05

physics was my fav

22nd Dec 2005, 17:09

Geodyne says:

Geophysicist here. Great job, lots of fun. I look forward to coming to work every day, which makes the years at uni worth every minute and cent.

22nd Dec 2005, 17:12

but art always won out with me

22nd Dec 2005, 17:14

Geodyne says:

Oddly enough, that was one of my two career choices when I left high school - chef or interior design.

22nd Dec 2005, 17:15

Dhamaka says:

I know I've come to this late, but I don't think I work in the *real world* It's really hard, takes long hours and all that, but it's enormous fun, I am learning all the time and pushing myself physically a lot too.... and doing exactly what I want to do

University was a pleasurable and slacker-friendly time.

Working isn't, but the rewards are better.
