How long until uni starts again?
Sounds like he or she is the one deserving of a badrep.

Uni starts on the 4th of February, the problem is during the first week there wll probably be only ONE class... So yeah, I pretty much have 2 more weeks of this.

I know what my problem is, and I need to face it and accept it. Normally what I do in these circumstances is travel. I get on plane and stop being bored. But I don't have the money for it right now. Or better yet, I do have the money bur if I do it, I have to kiss bye bye other travel plans such as my summer in Russia, plus 3 months in Lithuania and an eventual trip to a tennis tournament. I might even have to give up on live tennis this year. Not sure I can afford it plus the rest. But I am trying to, I promised myself to watch Nole play live every year until he retires, I have been doing so for 4 years now.

Oh well, I'll take a shower, better than nothing.

I donīt know, wouldnīt a badrep piss this poster even more off? I wouldnīt want to do that.

Well, it is not worth it to go somewhere now if you have this many plans, that hinge on you having enough money for them. Isnīt there some work you could do on the side while you are there? Or perhaps help that friend that is starting his/her own firm.

And you care about the reaction? well, it's all down to one question: does the poster deserve the badrep or not?

I have a plan for tomorrow. A mini trip to a town an hour from here, there is a food fair going on, so I am going to get lunch there with some family members.

And then on Monday, I am going to get my laptop and get my a** out of this house, go to the library and start some slow research for my Master thesis. It's only next year, but heck, if I start now it's work that I won't have to do later..

You are right. I have come to a decision.

A big yes on starting your research for your Master thesis, donīt be like me, procrastinating a thesis is no fun.

THE Algarve has emerged Europe’s top golfing destination in the inaugural Today’s Golfer Travel Awards, claiming the main Best Value Golf Destination (Continental Europe) title.

And the pride of Portugal triumphed in style by receiving an impressive 32% of the total number of votes – Turkey finished runners-up with 19% with long established golfing hotspot the Costal del Sol surprisingly languishing in fourth spot behind fellow Spanish region Costa Brava.

I really have nothing to do until I leave on Monday. No work or study needs to be done before then and I always leave packing to the last minute.

I should really be enjoying myself, but I'm really bored.

That's really interesting, I remember learning about life in the Soviet Union during those years, and their involvement during WW2, but never have I considered or studied their involvement in the Spanish Civil War. What's the story?

So what is the relationship, if you can summarise it briefly?

Humor disorders in what sense? Surely not the Aristotelian/Medieval one?

Can I tell you after I finish it? At least let me start it. I am not clueless, but I couldn't possibly explain you what I know in words that you would understand.
