For a few weeks I was reading all things gender and social equality based, namely: male privilege in society, sexisms, feminism (briefly), gender stereotypes, gender crime rates to disprove the male = paedophile notion, gender histories in society, basis of gender roles, gender intelligences, perceptions of the male outsider in society and forum discussions ... all fascinating until oppressions in society became a bit unchangeable past own insights (part of the reason I don't own a TV or watch news coverage).

    I do read many things though with introductory existentialism next after the last 100 pages of 'The Outsider' that studies interpretations of the social outcast in literature or biographical formats (ted.com is great for bit sized learning FYI).

    An Msc in Psychology is the next goal when I can afford self funding and gain enough experience of working with people with autism (mostly desired) and generalised learning challenges in education. What is your current course of study?

    I did consider emigrating once but came to realise that no country is perfect and that I'd need another 1-5 years to retrain then do the same thing again for country-specific equivalence qualifications... although I do oddly seem to know reasonable amounts about the American education systems.
    That's a loooooot of books. What motivates you to want to learn more about the human mind and behaviour? - Especially when you know people are capable of being some incredibly nasty and short sighted things. Do you not find it upsetting that the more you learn, the more it's possible to see wrong with the world?

    I will check that website out when I am a bit more alert and not so tired. :).

    I'm studying for an MSc in Physics with Astronomy. It's an interesting subject but not the easiest thing in the world. Then again, it wouldn't be so rewarding if it didn't pose a challenge.


    EDIT: Should say I'm studying for my MPhys not an MSci. Don't know why I made that mistake ¬_¬

    Now I'm into AC, trying to finish it correctly and find the plot behind it because its fun that way... besides that I'm not playing anything


    I Don't use MSN xD I just use Skype
    Sweet. Just let me know if you manage to sort it out! Hmmm. Ever played any prince of persia games? I've heard they're supposed to be pretty similar to the AC series...

    Oddly I'm used to reading so much, when an old personal best was 4 novels in a week and a half (already read 5-7 books this summer so far for fun). If anything its nice to test my own focus when previous coursework ended up being 10,225 words over 2 assignments and 50-60 references (achieving a 79/80% grade) and doing a dissertation alongside 2 other assignments in 4 weeks.

    All the time(doesn't help being a strong emotional energy sensing empathic and Highly Sensitive), when as I'm sure your aware with your subject choice just how often people glaze over at the mention of truly intelligent conversion or multiple degree interests.
    Psychology in itself interests me but as a conversion course only, when my real passion is Autism support/educating leaning more towards clinical psychology specialisms, not so much the neurotypical people themselves. Although I've had many say my experience, maturity, empathy and INFJ compassion would suit Psychotherapy too, no thanks hated the politics and competency disparities after out-thinking many therapists with early intuitive awareness and Jungian psychoanalysis basics or having traumas sidestepped (helping others did release my Fe barrier though to encourage 'loss of male stereotype persona').

    Interesting, how did you manage to fund a masters and why your combination?

    Not a fan of Skype chat (use it for calls but don't like contextless voice, bit shy with anonymous voice), much prefer MSN when most have hotmail accounts to avoid the MSN application on its own.

    I don't need to find lots of new games, I am often fine with what do I have aviable at the moment. I play lots of Minecraft you see. To the sandbox games I played GTA San Andreas and I am thinking of getting GTA IV, it seems fine. However people warned me that it can still be laggy even on newest computers, so I am not sure.
    Hmm I am just not sure whether I want to play Mass Effect. I know it's an RPG, but... it's a little... alieny. I don't like playing alieny games. Things like Alien vs. Predator, Half Life I and II or almost any game with aliens and space technology. I am open to change, but I don't feel like changing any time soon, I am too lazy for that kind of thing.
    I haven't played KOTOR, but I like Star Wars (it's one of exceptions when talking about aliens) so I will think of getting this one.

    Cider is good though not perry (pear cider) which is too sweet for me. But then again I like Kopparberg mixed fruits and that's probably just as sweet Westons make lots of ciders, the organic one is a killer (but it tastes good if you're in the mood - a bit dry and kinda rough) but I think the nicest was just called "dry" (might have that wrong...). It was on tap not bottled but I've only seen it in one place.

    Currently I think my favourite drink is Disarrono and coke but I'll usually jump around and try any new (to me) cider or lager I see. This weekend that was Kirin Ichiban, a Japanese larger that's probably closest in taste to Stella but without the aftertaste. Like most oriental larger it went straight through me so that's one to avoid in the future

    What do you normally drink?

    Damn! Congratulations on the grades and for having such good focus. Why do you think you're so good at focusing? Do you do anything else other than reading for entertainment/leisurely pursuits? Only asking because you said you didn't own a television. :).

    Yeah, I'm all too aware of the characteristic eye-rolling and sighing that comes whenever I mention that I'm a Physicist. Intelligent conversations only really happen with the people I live with and my closest course friends. I'm used to it though.

    As for the funding, I've taken out a student loan and managed to get myself a few grants and scholarships to help me along. Turns out getting a first in my 1st year was definitely a good use of my time! I chose Astronomy as my 'speciality' because to me it very much represents the bigger picture and serves as a stepping stone to understand more about the universe we're in.

    I've always thought to myself: "what could ever possibly be more interesting than learning about the stars in the sky and massive, exotic astronomical bodies like supernovae and quasars and black holes that nobody fully understands?" What challenge could be more irresistible than one that has literally been around since the beginning of time? I find nothing more tantalising than the opportunity to perhaps fathom why we are here, whether we have a place in this universe by design or by pure chance.

    Long story short: I have always liked asking questions!

    I've tried GTA a few times but never enjoyed it. Maybe I'll give it a go seeing as it's been about 5 years or so since I last played it :P As for Mass Effect feeling alieny, that's the whole reason I enjoyed the series. Everything in it is so vivid and colourful and exotic - I love it to pieces! Not to mention, as Shepard (the main character) you can easily become the galaxy's ultimate badass m*therf*cker and walk all over literally everyone. KOTOR has the most ultimate 'retro'ness to a game I've ever played. Everything about it feels so... right!

    If you like Star Wars, do you have any opinions on the upcoming Star Wars 1313?

    I like drinking blackcurrent with most of the drier ciders so I guess I don't mind the sweet tasting ciders at all. It makes the drink go down easier. Am definitely a fan of all things Koppaberg, Bulmers or Brothers and they are what I usually drink.

    However, on nights out (I am a student so this should come as no suprise) I will drink just about anything! I'm not fussy when it comes to drinking to get drunk XD

    I've had Disarrono w/ coke once or twice, but I never really enjoyed it. I try to avoid drinking drinks that use mixers in them, as my experiences with double vodka + coke/lemonade/etc... have always left a bad, bad taste in my mouth. It sometimes get to the point where I wake up in the morning and find my tastebuds have stopped working and the taste of cheap coke on its own is enough to make me want to retch. :(

    Star Wars 1313? Wow, I never seen this coming! I mean - I am not some huge fan of Star Wars, who would seek for all things that fan should own or anything like that. I just say that I quite enjoyed it, I am no huge fan of it. Is it movie or game? If game, cool. If movie, well, cool too!
