No doubt there'll be flak for this too.

Got my results back. Another A+. Apparently I rock at Social Policy.

Also, Stuff arrived in the mail! Stuff that convinces me I am actually enrolled over the summer trimester and someone realises it. This course has three essays, none of which are due while I'm in Hong Kong, and an exam. The first essay is 500 words.

500 words? *gulp* Who can write anything in 500 words? Just as an example, this post is 1200 words. I'm fucked, basically.

I was also taken aback by the strict parameters around essay presentation - down to how wide the margins have to be, and where I can use italics. It's been a while since I did a 100-level course and I'd forgotten about that. Now I'm going "Arbitrary rules! And so MANY of them! Argh!"

*cough* Ok done now. That is very unpolished and I'm not sure it even makes sense, but it's been brewing for a while and it had to come out.

tl:dr Just because history has constructed white women as the weakest people in the world doesn't mean it's actually true and I'm tired of hearing it kthxbye.

Um.. about that local sports team?
