@RadiantEmber ikwym, i had two archie roommates, and they only even came to the room for sleep and clothes. 😓
@rusty sorry if this is intrusive and weird but... i love dubliners too, and i want to read more joyce and i've got a copy of ulysses sitting on my shelf for months now, but i'm too intimidated to get into it because of its reputation of being this big-brain super-clever classic. i'm afraid i won't enjoy it or miss its themes. 😓 any suggestions on how i should approach it?
@kensanata same, for college. we didn't have a lot of bullshit work that would've been par of the course under normal circumstances, because the uni can't justify making us do that anymore. lectures felt pretty much the same in terms of how much i learned (and a lot less stressful, but that's just me) and i actually managed to save time to learn a lot more new things because of the time saved from the aforementioned lack of bullshit work. this was my one bright spot in an otherwise dismal year
@fence as someone who wishes to go to germany for higher studies, from what i know about it from the internet, it seems fascinating and terrifying to me at the same time
