2:57PM - more then just a copy and paste of a hand history

ho hum, its either type this, or write lab reports (funfunfun) or revise for impending exams (so much fun i think i might have to just leave it for some other time)

Uni is going ok, except for the dullness that is atmospheric chemistry. theres something about being taught by a guy that doesnt know the difference between an OH ion and an OH radical that is slightly unnerving. that and the dude looks like he's gunna die any minute. It was this that kept me away from the lectures. i was worried for his health. seriously o_0 Have an inorganic exam that im really not looking forward to, lots of ligand exchange crap i cant get my head around and so much insertion it'd probably outdo a porn film ( And some ROMP - stands for ring opening something, lecturer had the sense to leave ring opening ROMP til the end of the lecture thank fuck, but kept us amused for the 3 hour gap XD). An an organic retrosynthesis dealy, which should go ok if last terms organic is anything to go by (86% -squee!) Looking forward to getting the next 2 weeks over and done with.

Have been playing a lot more poker then usual, clocking ~16,000 hands a month. Had an awesome first month playing no limit, made aout £1500, so decided to buy a 40 inch high def TV for the flat. its so purdy! http://www.dixons.co.uk/martprd/editorial/Samsung%20Exclusive%20LCD%20TVs%2007A?camp_id=ppc_tvcamp

unfortunatly the next month was not so great, had about a 10k breakeven stretch (read: no money lost or gained - right pain, makes me second guess myself the whole time) so i had to pretty much reevaluate my whole game. Did this and now i've moved up to $200 NL, for the third time, hoping to play well enough that i can stay there. If i can forge out a 5BB/100 winrate while 4 tabling, it works out at about £30-40 per hour, which would come in really handy. The grosvenor poker tour is coming by brighton in may, which im proably going to try and qualify for. Its a £1000 entry, so obviously i dont want to buy in directly, but they run pretty cheapish satalites online, so i will try that way. Think top prize (assuming the likely sellout) will workout at ~£100K for a 320 person field,. No way im good enough at tournaments to win the whole thing, but if i could luckbox my way to the final table then i'd be bouncy for months.

Mine and amy's aniversary is coming up in the middle of exam country, prolly what we get for getting together during protests. I have no idea what we're going to do, but she's not big on going out so will probably end up with being chinese take-out and multiple filmage. Claires having her birthday party on the end of term, and her friends are less obnoxious then ollie's, so it should all be good fun.

just lost one of the biggest pots i think i've seen at 100. Got all my money in as a ~70% favourite. call by the guy with the eventual winner is expert, nothing like getting your entire stack in with 2 outs (~10%) when you are most likely fucked left right and center. Lawl, love this game :'(

12:31AM - ye gads!

Term over XD XD XD

last 3 weeks have been nothing but uber work work work. One of our lecturers is an absolute cunt. Heres a project on something i havent taught you very well. go do it. Then he wanted us to rewrite lab reports when we had enough work on with revising for impending doom ( read: exams) and on top of that, a presentation. FUCKING A! not social at the best of times, so having to give a presentation on spectroscopy that no-one really understands fully was a joke. Not only that, but he made us do it in groups of an average mark for the first project. so no easiness of doing it with peeps from flat. GAH! got to do ESR though, which is a piece o piss to work out, pain in the arse to draw, and no explanation required, as it makes NO SENSE!

Got some results back, have passed my organic course with ~85% XD kinda handy that im doing well in organic as was thinking of doing a PhD in it when im done. To be able to keep my scholarship i have to average over 65% which is pretty doable, but will have to see how it all pans out. Next term im gunna have to spend more time playing poker, as i managed to blow all my money ( ~£2700 - loan, higher ed grant for being poor and yearly scholarship) on .....rent? had to get my computer fixed as it had a hissy fit and just died, which was countless hours of frustration with a retarded new motherboard.

Computer:"we're sorry we dont know where to look for the hard disc, please install the drivers"

me:"how the hell do install the drivers?"

"plug in your hard disc, put the disc in the drive, and pres the install key"

"okey dokey" *fumbles with crap"

"we're sorry we dont know where to look for the hard disc, please install the drivers"


But the pooka is going quite well at the moment, seems that europeon people are just as willing to lose their money in retarded fashion as everyone else, so all is good.

its all of these wonderful angry folk that make poker more fun

11:25AM - Americans never learn

at the moment the US government is trying to pass an internet gambling prohibition bill.

Do they not remember what happened last time they tried to stop people doing something they enjoyed, like, i dunno, drinking?

If this passes im probably gunna have to go out and find a real job :( Most of my best customers The most talented poker players in the world are american, and if they cant play the number of people that i can play against is going to fall dramatically.

Link savage for remembering in place where wont lose it. Claires birthday dealy up in London from monthes ago, random peektures, huzzah!

Currently torn between getting a job and playing poker over the Holiday. My limit game seems to have gone to shit since i started uni, i think its as i didn't have a chance to play at the start of the year as much as i used to and i got a bit rusty, so im not winning as much as i used to. That and moving up to 10/20 raped my bankroll, i think it was a mix of downswing and arrogance that meant i lost ~ $6000 before moving back down, but on my return to 5/10 i couldnt beat that either as i had been so used to over aggression from everyone else that i just didn't readjust properly. Beating the 3/6 game ok, but not as much as i'd like, so i tried my hand at no limit. Wow, just wow. so many idiots willing to call everything its so awesome. Going to try and use my LJ as a way of keeping track of winnings/loses day by day as i think looking back over this will give me a better picture of hows things are going. Came 17/956 for $409 last night, wanted to get to final table as prizes went up in increments of $1000 but nvm, always next time.

transferred enough over to Amy to give her a bankroll for 1/2, she's learning pretty damn quick but gets frustrated pretty easily. Think she gunna be pretty good when she gets used to the swings, so will have to wait and see.

Tourney winnings :- $409 - $31- 122 = $256
NL $100 :- $304.06
Total winnings: : $558.06

12:10PM - HOORAH

`Last week was pretty hectic with the whole push for the closure of the chemistry department. We pretty much all bundled together and got lots of petitioning done, went to chat with members of senate and then it all built up to the big protest on Friday. Its weird, you goto lectures with a whole bunch of people and you don't really know much about them, but this has bought everyone closer together, and there was no segregation between year groups.

I've been asked to take over RocSoc next year. WHICH IS FUCKING AWESOME! No idea why i was asked, but, well, woot. Told Jackie that I'd do it with everyone else in our group, and might try to refocus the whole thing a bit ( read: less punk, more variation)

may have some issues with the flat next year, Jo has now declared that he doesn't want to move in with Simon as "he doesn't like the way he treats Trish" which is partially true, but its also as Trish is going out with Simon and not Jo. Long story short, Trish is an old skool friend of Jo who he used to date (but, as it turns out, never kissed o_0) he bought her along to the first scene not herd thing for the Rocsoc, prolly with the intention of taking her home also, only to see her go home with Mr Simon. So he's prolly a bit bitter. Added to that that on friday he also found out about me and Amy, which may make things a bit awkward as i think he may have liked her also. Ho hum, but then again, he does like everyone, so if i stayed away from everyone he liked i'd be relegated to men and men alone :(

Yey for random peekture timeCollapse )

mostly excusive bullshit. protest march Tuesday 14th March 12pm at Sussex uni for anyone who can make itCollapse )

Now i have emo rights, everything was getting itself nicely sorted and now they are closing our department. cunts

Wednesday, February 1, 2006


but it did lead o awesome adventure style adventuring. so all was not lost


cunting taxi driver dropped us at brighton campus. BRIGHTON CAMPUS!!!! bastads there apparently have no toilets. therefore they must be inbreds (?!)

needless to say we said "falmer campus, sussex university"

mental note, big taxi with asian guy = money grabbing cunt. he took us bypass to lewes road to bypass to lewes road to bypass, thinking we were too drunk to notice. he will be smote/smited/ whatever the before version of that is *nods*

3:11AM - todays morals

absinthe gets you wankered

absinthe with burning sugar gets you happily wankered

absinthe with burning sugar before you go clubbing is awesomeness in an orgasm

that is all, more sober remarks to return prolly in a week or two

I need to get a job :( so far this week i have blown through £150 with not a lot to show for it at the end except for an ever developing beer belly, rofl.

currently dying quietly at home, seemed to have picked up something from uni and am burning a fever ~ 39.4, lol. Oh and they have legionnaires at uni. I'm hoping they're not related, although it would give me an excuse to not attend my tuesday day of death, 5-9 with 2 labs and no breaks godammit! whoever did our timetable this term needs shooting, 3 9/10 starts, 2 3 hour gaps in the day, and a totally solid tuesday every other week.

New years also happens to be my mums birthday, and this year she happened to be 50, so my aunt decided to do something for her by inviting everyone round to her house for lunch. While this sounds like a nice thing to do, which it was, don't get me wrong, its a total nightmare with mum being in a wheelchair and having to travel for fucking ages, and no ramp into the house. but all was good, foodage was fairly grand, conversation dry as fuck, lol. pictures included under cut.

Read more...Collapse )

I just finished the entire ghost in the shell series and as a result am now bored as fuck. Heading into Brighton tomorrow to find more stuff that i don't need but want cuz its shiney. I just found out that when i get back to uni i now have 2 labs a week, mofo's!!!! that means two lab reports, and 4 hours in lab per day :( :( :(
