I removed someone from my flist for the first time in probably 2 years. I also removed her from Facebook. I think it's for the best for both of us. We have very different opinions and she clearly does not have any interest in my life. I respect that, but that's no point in staying on each others' friend lists, no matter the site, if that's the case.

Over the past year her behaviour towards me changed. I found her to be increasingly antagonistic and she has given me the impression that she has a problem with me, like she thinks I'm an idiot because I don't think just like her. An example is attacking me because I put in my last facebook status that someone at work has swine flu. The way it was written was if she thinks I’m so ignorant to consider it deserves mentioning.

I find some of her views very extreme, including what I found to be a very offensive quote she posted on her facebook status: “Auschwitz begins whenever someone looks at a slaughterhouse and thinks: they're only animals." Which is basically saying all meat eaters have the potential to gas jews and the 6 million Jews that died in the holocaust (including my maternal great uncles and aunts, my grandfather’s first wife and his 3 kids. He and my grandmother were survivors) is on the same level as eating a burger. If she feels that way, then why is she friends with meat eaters? Why not go live somewhere where everyone is vegetarian, she’ll never have to mix with potential Nazis. I politely explained how I felt, but she took it as an attack and used the lame excuse that the guy who wrote it is Jewish.

She removed the quote, but never apologized and went on to try to convert me to vegetarianism by pm.

She always went on about how people are intolerant of her views, but she had no tolerance for mine.

So goodbye!

Left work early, took a 20 minute train ride, and walked 40 minutes only to have a very pointless and unpleasant house viewing. The thing that bothered me the most was that

It has a leaking roof! And it leaks into the available bedroom onto the bed!!!!!


The landlord was really calm when he was explaining the issue and claiming he'll fix it, which gave the impression he doesn't take it seriously. He only admitted it when I asked him about some works he mentioned on the phone. I did ask him before I viewed why is the room cheaper (only slightly) than the others. He lied and claimed it is because it's smaller. He also lied about a French woman living in the room, as there were no possessions apart from suitcases hidden in the closet. The lock on the window was broken. when I pointed this out, he said no it isn't, like that would erase my memory.

All this for just £400 per month!

When I got there he asked me to sit down and asked if I wanted something to drink. He starting trying to have a conversation with me. I got up and said lets have a look around the house. He replied startled that he wanted to ask me questions, but instead he gave me long boring lectures on everything, in great detail, including the boiler and washing machine (he made me feel something he just washed) and wouldn't let me get a word in. every other viewing I've been too took 10 mins, this took 40. He even tried to keep me longer, by getting me to chat to a housemate but I rushed to the door!

By the time I got home it was 8:30pm, and I arrived at his house at 5:20pm.

Thanks for the wasted evening you werido!

I reported his ad on spareroom, don't know if that'll make a difference.

Second Transformers film rocked! I really enjoyed it! A vast improvement on the first film, which didn't really impress me.

Well just a day left until I move to Birmingham. It's both exciting and nerve-racking. I can't wait to go! I'll have my own studio apartment and finally get to do some real science! :D I haven't had much time to read up for the project, which makes me feel bad but what could I do? House hunting consumed my life. I feel restless, most likely because of the excitment, which probably brought on my rant:

By the way, I only comment in journals of people who comment in mine.

Can you believe this person?!! She is actually saying it's ok for a woman to deliberately risk the life of her unborn child! How can people be so stupid?!! She says it's the woman's own body, err no, the child is separate and deserves rights if the woman won't have an abortion! It belongs to the woman, that's the difference. Why not go binge drinking then? A woman shouldn't become pregnant if she isn't prepared to care for the child!

I got accepted to Surrey!

It's an informal acceptance but it's because the person who can send a formal reply is away but it'll be odd for the Prof. to take the time out to email me this response and then for me for be rejected!

It's a MSc in Medcial Microbiology (Research) for two years (as taught and research) and if I do well enough I might be able to do a third year which could lead to a PhD! :D

Now I have to get the money....

[Insert paypal link]

Give to the needy. :P

I was reading a reference sent to me by the guy I worked for last summer (I done a studentship at the John Innes Centre for those who don't know) and he put:

no doubt that Caroline’s work will lead to a number of future publications on which she will be an author.

I had no idea! O.o

Fuck the UEA

I have to complain about the bastard final year project supervisor (Andy Johnston)! Seriously. On thursday I'll see someone from the student union to get advise on how to go about it. The sooner the better. Apart from the shit I've had to put with in his so called teletubby project, he actually marked me down a geat deal and to explain it he made up lies, such as I didn't know what I was doing (wtf) and there was something wrong with my behaviour! The bastard! I don't think my uni will care but god damn it something will be done about it! I can hardly get myself to revise since find how I did and read his comments! The arrogant bitchy bastard actually thought he could get away with it? I just wish I could complain now but there isn't a complaint proceedure online. It just says if you don't know how get advice (so I'll see someone from the student union on Thursday). If I knew this would happen I NEVER WOULD HAVE GONE TO MY UNI!!! NEVER! DON'T GO THERE! THE UNIVERSITY OF EAST ANGLIA SUCKS!
