Where do you spend most of your online time?
In all honesty? Facebook, WordPress, Hotmail, Blackboard, WordReference. And I’m sure that most university students will agree with me on that, particularly the linguists. The italian dictionary needed for my course is so old and expensive that I simply cannot afford it yet, so an online dictionary must suffice. The only other specimen I could choose would have to be a Collins one, which is hefty enough, and it’s a good solid dictionary, I have one for my Spanish. But if I want to continue Italian after university, my personal tutor has recommended that I opt for the more advanced, detailed and outrageously priced version.
I haven’t kept up with the news. Don’t believe me? I’ll prove it. Osama bin Laden is dead, someone’s been convicted of a murder that happened a while ago and we’re sticking to FPTP voting. Which is totally fine with me, I voted no anyway.
Other activities online include video streaming of Glee and Sex and the City. After my exams I’ll be commencing with the entire series of Bones. What a gripping life I lead.
Another online pastime of mine is chasing up randomly deleted files. “I-I’ve-I’ve wiped the file?….You mean, I’ve wiped ALL the files?! I’ve wiped…the INTERNET!??! I DON’T EVEN HAVE A MODEM!!”. I’m unsure of the existence of a time where i haven’t found either an Eddie Izzard of Tim Minchin quote to go with one of my fleeting thoughts. It’s good.
