ithika: (the merch is sick)
[personal profile] ithika
First of all, I would like to say that I am sad that I am using Xjournal, which is a free livejournal client, when I now am possessed of Macjournal, which is not free and I got in the Macheist bundle. I'm probably just retarded, but the other day when I wrote a whole huge big entry in that thing and then posted it to LJ, it boned all of my HTML so much that I couldn't be arsed to fix it. Now that entry (which was about fish tanks) is just a jumbled mess, a scummy film floating at the top of my private entries. You won't see it unless I can be bothered to fix the code. There's a lot of code. I don't think you'll see it.
So if anyone could shed some light on how to use the damn thing, that would be cool.
Otherwise I'll like google it or whatever *mumble mumble*.

So I'm writing a report on this thing called On the Couch that we did for Professional Practice. It's a giant group assignment (the group is like 30 people or more), which I'm sure you can imagine is a nightmare before you even do anything.
I was part of the group that set up the questions (we have guests come in to our lecture theatre and we ask them questions relating to a theme we were given), which went rather smoothly and was stupidly easy for 15% of the unit's mark. The next group actually asked the questions of our guests and ran the event. The final group wrote a transcript of the event, took photos, filmed it.
The final group did a shit job of it.
We have to write a report on the event, which is worth 35% of the unit mark. We have to use the data from the final group, but to be honest they did it pretty half-arsed. I'm glad I wrote down my own transcript, because there are whole chunks of conversation missing from their transcript which I considered to be some of the most critical statements from the whole event.
What's worse is they've obviously just typed up their notes from the evening, and not consulted the video that they made, because there are things like "We're not sure what this question was, but we think it was this one" - get the video and fucking check it? Isn't that your job? That's very professional. And they've gotten the questions wrong, as well. pretty simple job done pretty badly. Makes me angry.

But other than that it's actually turned out to be a pretty interesting analysis of the architectural profession. Or the design profession I suppose, because there was also a Landscape Architect and an Urban/Interior designer. All qualified designers, anyway.
I might post it once I've finished my final draft. (I know! I must have learned something from completing a Bachelor's degree, because now I'm finally organised enough to do a first draft! Not that organised though : I have a lot of other shit to do before Monday... it would have been good if I hadn't been sick last week. Or if I had known that I was going to be. Then I probably wouldn't have done all that fish tank stuff on Wednesday. Oh, who am I kidding? Of course I would...)

Oh yeah. I want one of those Merch/Flesh Reaper hats from the PA store. But I think I will wait.
