    Had such a crappy few months that I expected to fail one or both units from last term. Passed both. I'm so used to stunning success or utter failure; is formal education a normalising filter applied to human beings? I'm finally average! I've scaled the bell curve to the very top!

      @mjd congrats for passing.  What's next?

        @luke I'm at a bottom-tier fake university, so the units i need to complete my degree aren't available this year, maybe not next, or the year after. The plan is to try to transfer to a real university; I might as well start from scratch.

          @mjd @luke At a bottom-tier fake university I bet you have to pay a lot? So maybe you could afford this one instead?

        @luke The long-term plan is one of my best. I was fed up with web development in regional #, and needed job security, a decent income, and autonomy. I know! I'll become an academic!
