S-p-a-c-e-d o-u-t

Feel rather spaced out today. Not really sure why; just find myself staring into space a lot. Stronge! Hmm.

Procrastination at its finest?

Well after having spent an entire 2 hours on facebook this morning, I can confidently announce that this has not been my most productive morning yet. However, it quickly dawned on me that I no longer need to be particularly productive as I've finished my exams and have no more studying to do.

I feel the past 15 years or so of studying has been a sort of comfort blanket for me. I seem to take solace in my work and studying; though I often grumble to myself about how tired I am. I think I'm feeling slightly at loss with what to do with myself now that Im finished. That is, provided I pass all these exams! Eeepenema!

Anyway, I think it's fair (in a paranoid woman's mind) to say that Mr Literary was a 'one-off'. Not one of my most intelligent moves ever but all in a growing woman's day huh? I think that's possibly ruined a perfectly civilised friendship now but I may just be growing in paranoia; we'll see the outcome of that.


I remember during the LPC whilst studying Advanced Criminal Litigation and doing Road Traffic Offences and I came across something which, at the time, really annoyed me. I think it was something to do with the different penalities for Death by Dangerous Driving and Death by Careless Driving. As far as I can remember, the penalties for death by dangerous driving were far higher than that for careless driving. (Though I think that the offence of death by careless driving was relatively new or being reviewed). Anyway, my argument in class was that surely if the outcome is the same, i.e. DEATH, then what does it matter whether the driver of the car was driving carelessly or dangerously?!

I suppose in a really pedantic legal-brained way of looking at it would be to take the two terms 'dangerous' and 'careless' and consider their meanings. The term 'careless' seems to suggest that there was no intention to cause harm whereas 'dangerous' in this context seems to suggest that the person knew that the manner in which they were driving would cause some harm. I really don't know...I think as long as someone is killed the penalties should more or less be the same but I know it's not as simple as that.

The law is indeed "...a ass..."

Well I had better scuttle off and make myself more useful today. I suppose seeing as I have less work to do I can be more dedicated to my blogging now



I really could do with a nice tea!

Retail Therapy...

Oh yes, today I did indeed shop until I dropped or developed a headache. All in all a good day but lack the ability to type from carrying heavy bags...PAH!

Till next entry

CBC rises up through the hazy corporate veil of ignorance [non sequitur]

So in other words, I've finished Business Law! It wasn't as bad as last time to be honest. Sheesh! At least this time I was actually somewhat able to identify what the damned questions were asking! Haha.

I'm so tired now...I guess I just wanted to post to remind myself that I was still alive!

Off to bed with me until next post
