Studies in schedule again. After a summer of hard work it's time to return for university. Taking 4 courses of mandatory mathematics this year. Also, they just changed the educational program due to orders from the higher powers and 75% of physics and 25% of maths was removed from my program. As I had already done all my physics I just got an instant minor in physics! Wee.

Been revising Swedish. I've forgotten it all except grammar, and I can manage by thinking of an English word and bending it a bit. Just finished translating a long article from the Hufvudstadsbladet and writing a speech about myself. It surely sounds like Kimi Räikkönen pronouncing English, but whacha gonna do? It isn't all that bad, but I would still prefer learning Chinese or Japanese. At least the lecturer is cool, and a chess player as well.

Damn "Volunteer based distributed grid computing" and the related terms were hard to translate...

Right now I am in Prague. Just back from my best friends' marriage.

I just started my three year program in Electrical Engineering Technology with my brother, apparently it has a 95% hiring rate out of college so it should be a good career choice!

Well here I am, Reading University and all the clams I can eat. The course is Computer Science, and Reading seems pretty good for that. I guess I'll be able to report once Fresher's Week is over and I can safely leave my room.

Is Reading particularly famous for its clams? Mmmm, clams. And what is unsafe about with Fresher's week?

Too many parties, too much drama. I thought it was over, but tonight had more drama than the entire week combined. Luckily I managed to avoid it.

And the clams thing is a Looney Tunes reference. "Well, here we are: Pismo Beach, and all the clams we can eat!" Fortunately I did remember to take that left turn at Albuquerque.
