oh christ I'm SO ready to be done with this. [university related.]  
Okay, this is half-ranty. Skip at will. If I could show my icon in the face of whoever runs the university's internet site it'd make me happy.

So. Summing things up: I need to do two exams and then I'm graduating. And I kept the two easy ones for now because I wanted to be done with them and take things calmly instead of just giving six exams in one session. (Which I couldn't anyway.) Other important thing to know: to do an exam, you need to sign yourself on the uni's internet site made for it, except that I haven't been able to visualize any exam for this term which isn't philosophy since last year. Explaining why would now be too bothersome and long, but point is: I can't see any exam for this term and I need the teacher to compile me a blank receipt. But since I knew the dates of all the exams already, when I gave my round of exams in June I just e-mailed my teachers a week before and they knew.

So, I have the pedagogy one the day after tomorrow, but thankfully after sending the presentation in I don't really need to study for it. And he said it's okay to do the blank receipt.

Then I have this German literature one. Whose teacher is famous for, er, forgetting things. Anyway. He had put the dates for the June exams outside his room, but not on the regular uni site (the one where you just find the dates). Not the September ones. I tried on the site where you sign up but I didn't see anything. So I stalked his room for the entirety of last week and he never put a piece of paper saying the dates on his door.

So I go back there today figuring that at least I might try to talk to him. (Which I had tried before, except that he was never there.)

The dates are there. With all the names of the people signed up.

The dates are TODAY, TOMORROW AND THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW.

And he never said ANYTHING about it ANYWHERE, and if it was on the signing-up-site THEN I NEVER SAW THEM.

Now. The program is e-mailing him now and if he doesn't answer, going there tomorrow, and ask him if there's the slightest chance that I might come during one hour when he talks to students next week and do it then. Chance is that he might tell me to just come the next day. WHICH IS THE SAME AS THE PEDAGOGY EXAM. At the same hour. Not to mention that while I am sort of ready, more or less, I could definitely use an extra couple of days, especially because he never gave ANY notice. And I really would like to at least have a read twice through the stuff I need to have read. Otherwise I'll need to pull an all-nighter and just read like a maniac between today and Thursday.

Now, Christ, was that too hard to put a notice out of the door early September? Or at least ONE WEEK BEFORE THE ACTUAL EXAMS? I mean, for all the other exams I gave the dates for September were out in MAY. And I had just figured that if the dates weren't out yet, that the exam was supposed to be somewhere around/after the 20th. Seriously, does this even happen in other countries? Not to mention that this whole mess with the signing ups is making me lose weeks of my time. I'm supposed to study, not to lose time because I can't sign up. In conclusion, if it goes alright fine, then at worst I should give it in December. Like, two weeks before graduating. Which I really wanted to avoid because I wanted two full months to write my thesis and nothing else. *sighs* Why can't things ever be easy?

Also, working at a library is awesome, but when people practically slam their card that they need to get in in your face like they're doing you a favor, your mood doesn't get any better. But that's for another time.

Augh, let's see if I can manage this without bloodshed. I'm so ready to be done with this. First thing I'm doing in the masters degree, as soon as I have enough credits, is applying for an Erasmus that lasts at least ten months. I can't deal with this crap anymore. :/
