[Sana/Alta/Naia's Scrapbook] Learn With Me

Postby Arysana on December 1st, 2013, 8:15 am

I Did It
I am weak, I gave into temptation and made a scrapbook when I should have been studying or planning something. Don't expect much in this little bit, my head hurts and I lack the desire to write about my boring ol' self [Guess who lost their glasses, again?], though I will be constantly coming back and editing it.

A Sentence or Two on Me Because I Can't Write Anymore,
and the Point and Purpose of this Scrapbook

My name is Rachael, I'm ginger, and I live in Australia (Which means I have this 'permanent sunburn' thing going on), and I am an undeclared engineering student, though I was pretty close to choosing science.

As you can probably guess, my three lovely PCs are Arysana, Altaira, and Naia. A majority of posts will be me trying to straighten out how I feel about characters and really try to drive their differences, because the constant jumping from writing a solo for Sana then a work thread for Naia, then a co-op for Alta has their personalities bleed on to one another.

Another thing to expect is random spurts of information. Given I'm still young and inexperienced, there are a lot of things that I need to learn to help with my writing, and I find that things 'stick' better when I have a place to throw the information and otherwise engage it in my mind by typing/writing. I will post reference links, both for myself and others.

On that note, just assume that I own nothing. I prefer not to host certain images through Miz mostly because privacy and copyright laws are lost on me (Though I make sure that such sites are secure and not-shady, such as devientART or Pinterest), and I really don't mind going back and changing a pattern or image because the artist/site has chosen to remove it. So, in otherwords: unless I've signed it as my own work, it is not mine.


Notes and Rules - there aren't many so please stick with me
- I'd rather not get spammed
- No flaming please [I had to google what it was after I wrote the list - I'd heard it in use but lacked the ability to care enough to actually find out what it was. I was kind of like 'Is spam the only thing I don't want? What else is bad? 'Flaming' sounds bad. I'll put flaming down']
- Constructive criticism is welcome! I find myself repeating the same flows and patterns when I write, and due to my study load and responsibilities at home, I usually don't have the time to really go over my work and improve. So any notes about awkward wording and ways to overcome bad habits would be appreciated!
- Please for the love of all that is kind and fair, don't write in those awfully curly and cursive fonts. I can't read it and I get sad and confused and frustrated.
- Don't mind the 'occasional' rant.
- Other than that, post away! Whether it be a greeting, conversation, note on my writing, or a point for further discussion/threading

Me again, wha-hey. I clicked on your scrapbook link after posting in our topic because I'm
1) a stalker
2) I like to know who I'm threading with (it's interesting okay)

Oopsie, think I'm in the same boat as you are; exams closing in fast and I'm just sitting here, threading away. Just curious - when you say 'science', do you have anything specific in mind? Because there are a hell of a lot of branches to climb on that tree there; I'm having trouble deciding, myself.

And I've got to admit, the redheaded Aussie thing made me giggle - Australia seriously seems like everything - from the wildlife to the weather - is out to get you guys.

KAHN.
Oh, and I was thinking:
- Genetics and computer science
- Physics and mathematics
- Physics and geology [Majoring in, you guess it - geophysics!]
- Biotechnology [Shh it counts]

With engineering, all I really care for is software :/ Maybe mechatronic? Not much else, though.

Haha, Australia is a pain indeed! XD We have some pretty funny creatures, too - like have you seen those emu videos where they freak out and prance like morons? My goodness they're hilarious.

I've actually graduated now :P Our school years begin in Feb and end in Nov. In a week I'll have my final grading, and uni offers are out in Jan! Buut I've gone and joined this online class thing so I can check out some of the branches of physics so I can start thinking about my 'specialisation,' as a lot of my mates like to call them

Good God Girl - all that physics! That's quite a variety you have there, though - best of luck picking one of those, they all sound pretty interesting to me. (Although, admittedly, when and if i graduate physics will be the first subject to be booted from my life forever in terms of career and university :') ) That doesn't help you in the slightest, I think, sorry :D

Wait what, school years Feb-Nov .. I was so confused by this, until my dad pointed out that it is now summer in Australia. Lucky you - winter's only just kicked in here >.<
And yes, I have seen various emu videos and gifs, I don't know exactly what to think of them they're so endearingly odd though omg

Haha, I was set on physics... but now I'm leaning more towards to engineering because of travel ;_; What to do, what to do?

Woo! Do you have the pleasure of a 'White Christmas'? Or do you just get a bit chilly? :S

Side note, I'll reply to our lovely little thread when I can! I managed to catch a cold and I've felt like death for the last couple of days, and fallen behind on everything.

Tough decisions C: It's hard, picking something specifically you're going to be doing the rest of your life. Don't the programmes you've picked provide inside-days? Most of them do that here; like as in going with a student and actually attending class for a day. They do that here, it's been really helpful for my choice ;)

And I don't know, we shall see if this one's going to be a White Christmas! Mostly, it's white the week before Christmas and during Christmas it's thawed down a bit and we're left with brown mush. Which then freezes over and becomes slippery as heck which is perfectly lovely if you have a daily thirty-minute bike ride to perform, twice. But I guess it look picturesque. Or something.

Don't worry about the thread, take as long as you need, there's no rush ;)
(Am I cluttering up your scrapbook? If so, I'm sorry :') )

Nope, no inside days here -- or at least none that I know of! We have a payment scheme called HECS-HELP in which the government pays your tuition and you pay them back after leaving (Be it as a graduate or a drop out - though it gets complicated when it comes to doctorates/masters/et cetra). But not until you've found a job and are earning over a threshold [40/50k last time I checked? Might be a little more] - as payment comes out as an automatic tax, you never have it to miss it. Not to mention our courses are pretty cheap (engineering is 8617 a year). SO the overwhelming attitude towards university choices here is 'Pick one and if you don't like it, just keep on changing until you find your thing.' I know people who changed three times in their first semester, and that wasn't even worth raising an eyebrow at. My issue is more of a time thing... I'd like to not be in my mid to late twenties when graduating uni |:)

Oh, that sounds lovely XD

And its fine!
I should have a reply up in the next couple of hours [Sighs as I look upon the half a down other responses that need writing]

Rachael Does Rants

Postby Arysana on January 29th, 2014, 11:52 pm

Woo! Annoyed ranting time! No one pay this is any much mind, I just need to get it out of my system so I can calm down - and sort of explain my inactivity as of late.

As a few people know, one of my older sisters is over.

And she is quickly becoming my least favourite person in the entire damn planet.

Why? Because she seems to think that any action I take or do requires her freaking approval. Even better? It's all about her. Lol, writing and reading? What a waste of time. Here, take my half asleep four year old son and sit on the couch next to him while he watches a silly show that you hate, while I sit at your computer desk and take 'work calls' [70% gossip and complaining about superiors and inferiors, 30% actually getting shyke done]. You see? Now you're living.

*Head-desk*

Oh, and even better? She doesn't seem to understand what the word 'privacy' means. In her little decision that everything I enjoy as a hobby is a complete waste of time, she likes to do this thing where she stands or sits next to me while I'm on my PC, every five minute making a comment about what I am doing and sighing. Not like she has a laptop. That she can take anywhere in the house while she's here. Or three other desks to choose from. One of which my lovely mother had me clear out a fortnight ago for her to use. Or that my room has internet reception so bad that my father had to go and make an entire set up in my room so that she could work in there.

She's here for another week and a half.

I can't leave my computer to grab a cup of tea (or breakfast) with out her deciding that I wasn't there anymore and moving her stuff in. So it looks like I'll be sneaking into my mother's computer [This thing is a dinosaur it's ridiculous] when she isn't using it and my sonovanavikki younger brother isn't around to complain about me doing so. So that gives me about an hour or two a day. On weekdays that she goes out.

Yep. I'm going to kill someone.
Probably a character's sister
