Tube Journey Home

No. 1 in a series of 1: Things You Really Shouldn't See Whilst Walking The Streets Of London.
A man in a suit spitting on the pavement. I mean really?!

I think that I've improved from earlier on. Yes, I still think that my life is a mess, but I'm having a relatively good afternoon. My last two classes have really cheered me up. First, a lecture by (randomly) a member of the House of Lords, on alternatives to prison. We were all expecting the worst, but it was really, really (I use that word far too much) good. I put my name down on a list to get some FREE books on the subject sent through. Yes, FREE. High-class literary material for me.

Speaking of which, I applied for a vacancy at my local Books Etc store yesterday. Or at least I did after a comedy / catalogue of errors in trying to print my CV off. Stupid cheap 3rd party ink cartridges. It's a Saturday job, but I figure that I don't do anything on Saturdays anyway, and I need the money really (that word again) bad.

Getting back to today, my 2nd class was a German language one. Again, it was a one-on-one, because the other girl failed to turn up. Her loss. I like the guy who teaches it, even if he is, how shall I put it, eccentric. Think Einstein with slightly less mad hair. Anyway, we chatted in German for about 40 minutes, mostly about the difference between German and English constitutions (they have one, we don't). He then picked up on my mistakes, and gave me this sheet which is going to save me, German-wise. It's basically a sheet which lays out clearly when and how to use the words for "the" and "a". You'd think they'd be easy, wouldn't you?

You'd be wrong. They're fucking hard, and I haven't learnt them properly yet. How long until I go to live in Germany? 8 months. I'm so fucked.

And now here I am, on the Tube (= scruffy handwriting), cheered up and in a mood. Yes, I'm skipping an Evidence class, but meh. I haven't done the reading for it, and I've got another tutorial to prepare for tomorrow. Something interesting as well: Prisons and all of their paraphrenalia. A few good books from the library, some tunes on and some OJ, and I'm set up for the afternoon / evening.
