toomuchlipgloss: In some ways, depression is the groovy old family cat of your best friend. It holds no prejudice of class, gender or education. It isn’t concerned with how much you earn, how much you weigh or how many things in your life are “good”. If it chooses to be your companion, it will be, regardless of whether or not you try to scare it away. Much like that family cat of your best...

The Kills On World Cafe →
Indie rock duo The Kills came together when Alison “VV” Mosshart heard British guitarist Jamie “Hotel” Hince practicing in a hotel room. Mosshart and Hince began airmailing work tapes back and forth across the Atlantic, but soon realized that a long-distance collaboration was too taxing.

remembering the good times:
Nikita: Nishiii! Did you do or hw? Could I take a look at it before class?
Nishi: Heyy sure but there is one problem.. I'm usually late to class! i'll try to get there early.. Going to bed now. Night!
Nikita: Can you and Viv teach me how to do stats for the quiz at 12 or 1? (for real this time! I need it!)
Nishi: Sure i need to go over it too since i didn't do much for it .. I'm in rs till 150 but i think minitab isn't available :s trying
Nikita: I've been sleeping, can't be bothered, guess I'll just take a 0
Nishi: Haven't slept yet!
Nikita: Nishi!.. The other day you asked me on FB how much studying i'd done... Just started this morning. Not gonna do much for hf, focusing on stats. How are you getting on?
Nishi: Ah! yeah.. Are you staying up?
Nikita: Yeah i might as well, my back's been really sore so I haven't been sleeping well anyway. Also gonna go to stats office hour tmrw so I need to finish studying hf tonight. Have you ended up reading much of the textbook?
Nishi: Only 16 18 19 :s hmm
Nikita: Well that's 3 more chapters than me haha...
Nikita: Can you make sure i'm awake at 9/whenever you wake up?
Nishi: Sure. But not planning to go to office hours though.. I haven't done any hf for the last two hours or more
Nikita: How was the exam?
Nishi: Could have gone better.. How's studying for stats?
Nikita: Ah yeah? Well 1 down! Slept all afternoon then made dinner, about to get back into studying.
Nikita: How's stats? I'm going super slow, ugh.
Nishi: Going to start now after a three hour break. Ugh
Nikita: 3 hour "breaks"... Yeah.
Nikita: Eek. Don't feel prepared. And I let myself sleep in until 11. You ready?
Nishi: Noo haha oh well. Good luck!
Nishi: Hi nikita!
Nikita: [13 hrs later:] I was asleep. Slept forever and still haven't done any dm/de studying. Guh.
Nikita: This is bad Nishi! I didn't study at all yesterday in the end, planned to wake up early today and get started. Still haven't done anything!.
Nishi: I'm trying to do data! Ugh
Nishi: Sf lib? :p
Nikita: Yah... Are you here?
Nishi: Photocopy machine
Nikita: No cheat sheet for data, right?
Nishi: Nope don't think so
Nikita: Nishi I actually got quite a lot done! Read thru data lec slides and went over de midterm solutions. Probably going to waste the rest of tonite tho...
Nishi: That's great! do you find it easy? how are you for differentials?
Nishi: Hey hows the studying! btw what doctor did you go to, my back is hurting a lot
Nikita: Hey, not the best. Stayed up all night not studying, then slept most of the day. There's still enough time tho. That sucks, I can't remember her name. I have some alleves left if you want them, a bit stronger than advil/tylenol
Nishi: Oh alright. Studying is going slow for meee
Nikita: How's your back feeling?
Nishi: Better. Still screwed for differentials though haha...
Nikita: That's good I'm sure you'll do fine :) But god, i'm unbelievably screwed. Very high potential for failure
Nishi: How much is your final worth?
Nikita: 70, possibly 90 if he lets me transfer mid2 as well. I think I'll pass but I don't expect much more than that. You did alright on the midterms didn't you?
Nishi: Like 60s but the averages were high!
Nikita: Ugh. I KNOW. (Thunderstorms outside to add some atmosphere to the night...)
Nikita: Fuck fuck fuck. Slept late, started aid sheet at 11:45. Even more screwed than expected. You ready?
Nishi: Still need to put ch 6 11 12 ..And i don't understand them either..
Nikita: Yeah... Good luck. I understand 11, not much else!
Nishi: Good luck to you too!
Nikita: Guh ch12 wtf. [20 mins before exam]
Nishi: Ya. I'm heading to ba.. I give up
Nikita: Yeah I'm about to leave. What a disaster. And past finals... so many problems, even if I knew how to solve them all...
Nishi: Haha ugh.. Data tmro too .. Lol
Nikita: Yep. I was just about to inform you that I have failed that class, no question. I only answered 2 questions properly, part marks can't fix that.
Nishi: Fuck.. Now gotta study for data... Sigh
Nikita: Yep. Fun fun. How do you think you did though?
Nishi: Needed 16 marks to pass the course but i think i got like 8 out of 50
Nikita: He, nice. That's not too bad though, i'm sure it'll work out.
Nikita: I'm so annoyed at myself. Not getting started on data either.
Nikita: Just taught myself xml in 30 mins, hope I got it right!
Nishi: I just want to sleeep. got to look at a lot of things now
Nishi: Haha scared to take a nap. How ready are you for this?
Nikita: I'm confident I'll pass (unlike de) but I haven't studied nearly as much as I should have or most of the class has. You?
Nikita: Not going to do well on the inevitable bcnf question. Oh well.
Nishi: Me too.. I should have slept more!
Nikita: If you want to sleep I'll call you to make sure you're awake in time.
Nikita: Btw at the end of this semester I think i'm going to compile all of our pre-exam text conversations for memory's sake haha
Nikita: How did you find it? I forgot some sql/relat alg basics but hopefully part marks... I think a lot of the class will have done really well, unfortunately.
Nishi: Studied yettt? I haven't
Nikita: I think I will start studying tomorrow. I'd better - mogwai concert Tues night so... What have you been up to this weekend?
Nishi: Trying to pack and sort my stuff! Now trying to study at a friends place. Did you go out last night?
Nikita: Oh true. No, drank on our front roof with upstairs and downstairs people. Watched the Russian church Easter celebrations.
Nikita [Monday 6pm]: Time for me to start studying yet?... How's it going?
Nishi: I'll be in mc lab in 5 min. At tim hortons now! did you just wake up?
Nikita: Almost, been lying in bed reading/listening to music the last 2 hours
Nikita: Oh wow - TWO dbl sided formula sheets?
Nishi: Haha yeah. trying to make them now. Going to tutorial tmro?
Nikita: I plan to, hopefully I wake up for it...
Nikita: How's it going? And you're going to tut? Reading ch 20... Book makes it sound complicated
Nishi: I'm still here in mc! ugh. Yes i'm going to try.
Nikita: Are you coming to this tut? I didn't sleep last night baghh!
Nishi: I am! and that's not good.. Where is it btw?
Nikita: Blue room/sf1105. I'm by the right door
Nikita: How goes le study? I have done almost nothing since that tutorial - went to mogwai concert tho!
Nishi: Just woke up! gah... Have to look at tutorial and hw
Nikita: Nice. I gots to make most of my aid sheets.
Nikita: Man, there's so much I could be learning/practicing in these last few hours, but i'm just taking it slow, wasting time... Ready to be fucking done??
Nishi: YEA. O gradys after?
Nikita: Oh yes! Btw must have failed de - my mid1 score (taken from final) is on blackboard as 7.5/20, which means I got 18.75 on the final. Eek.
Nishi: Marks are out? How much wiley did you do?
Nikita: Oh no no, I petitioned for mid 1, so i'm assuming that came from my final. I did maybe half of Wiley...
