I have just had one of the most hectic weeks of my life! I had the essay which was due for Friday. This took up the vast majority of my time. I worked out that I was spending an average of 13 hours at Wits every day for the past 4 days! Thursday I spent 14 1/2 hours at Wits working on my essay. That's why I haven't posted since Monday!
I also had to present some papers to the animal behavour class that I am doing this block. That required me finding papers, reviewing them and then leading a discussion on them in the lecture. It went surprisingly well! Especially considering that Helen and I finalised what it was we were going to say 5 min before the whole thing was due to happen!
I have had some amazing things happen to me this last week! Firstly, Natasha, the annoying chick from our honours room, embarassed herself in the most humiliating way! It was hysterical! I realise what a bitch I sound like but if you knew Natasha, you would definitely understand!
She recieved an e-mail which contained tons of soft porn of guys with strategically placed tupperware containers, if you know what I mean. Apparently, the containers didn't hide much anyway. So, apparently she had downloaded the images in question onto her USB flash drive. She then forgot about them.
Later, she had to take some papers to one of our lecturers. So she put the papers onto her flash drive and took it off to the lecturer to give them to him. As he plugged in the drive, the autoplay setting kicked in. It was set on the show images as slideshow option. So, to her horror all of her soft tupperware porn proceeded to slowly drift across the screen in front of the lecturer. She then proceeded to totally freak out. Apparently the lecturer then just got the documents off the drive and gave it back to her. She then ran off to the honours room and burst in shouting something along the lines of 'I have just had the most embarrassing moment of my life!!!'
The absolute best part about the whole thing was that the lecturer hadn't thought anything strange was happening until she lost it. The lecture that she was supposed to give was on sexual selection and so the lecturer had simply assumed that they were visual aids. He later joked that he wanted more photos of woman to even the scales a bit.
Naturally, after about 2 hours, everyone had heard about it and Natasha proceeded to make herself very scarce...;-)
The next amazing thing that I have had happen this week is that I have been offered the most amazing project for next year! I will be doing my masters project and so I recieved the offer. Now, I don't want to jinx it so I won't describe it just yet. Also, should anyone in my department find this blog, I don't want any competition for the project!
I'm totally psyched!
Anyway, this weekend is just for resting, as I REALLY need it! I'll write tomorrow...
PS. I really need to go to a rave! I haven't been for so long!
