Today was a mix of awesome and absolutely shit, but I am way too tired to do a long rant so I will just throw out the basics. I had a 'pre departure' session today at uni, which is basically just a meeting with all the outbound exchange students talking about last minute things. I managed to find out that 1, No matter how stinking horrible my GPA is this semester (and trust me, i've never had worse grades) that it won't affect my exchange, or my ability to increase the length of my exchange. Good . We also get $5000 from the government for going on on exchange, it eventually goes onto your students loan repayments but with Australia's wicked cool university payment scheme, it basically screams free money to me. Even though my exchange is only 3 months long I still get the $5000. Good . AND if i apply for an addition semester, which is another three months, i'm eligible to get another $5000, which will pay off the bank loan i'm taking out to travel Europe for a month an a half. Good . So then I hear you say, but neon, that sounds like a bunch of good stuff!! Indeed it is, but none of it makes up for the soul crushing experience I am to endure roughly 6 hours later.

So I leave the meeting, all motivated and excited. I rush to the library, determined to bust out the last essay! The last piece of written work between myself and leaving for overseas. I go to my favourite computer lab, and one of my friends is there! It is always nice to work along side a friend. I'm chugging away, writing opinions on the treaty of Versailles like you've never seen! I finally hit 2,500 words and i'm brimming with happiness at the draft that is essentially my finished essay. "by scott, most of my pals haven't even started!" I think to myself, perhaps a little too smugly. Having forgotten my USB I save the document, intending to email it to myself then recover it when I got home. So I save it. I also save my bibliography which I have on a separate word document. I close all the windows. Go to attach it. and only one document is there. The bibliography that i'd intended to save as 'essay2'. I freak the fuck out. I go through all the folders, and can't find it. I must have absent mindedly saved the bibliography over the file 'essay1', the actual essay. I scathe the internet for what I might do. Ever where tells me i'm fucked. I go up to the IT department, they've all gone home for the night. BAD as I slowly realise I won't be recovering the essay I begin to burst into tears as I log off my computer and walk to my car, continuing to cry and have sever road rage all the way home. I am SO mad! I'd made so much progress, and done such a good job, and there I was back to square 1.

too long;

NEON MANAGED TO DELETE THE ESSAY SHE WORKED ON AND FINISHED FOR 6 HOURS STRAIGHT.

It really wouldn't be such a big deal if exams didn't start next week, as in I was relying on every scrap of time to study for them. It's now 1am and i've half re-written it to some extent. From trying to clutch at all the points i'd made previously i've put together a clunky horrible half version of what i'd done.

What a fucking stupid thing to do.

You took out a bank loan to travel in Europe? What kind of bank would approve that?

The National Australia Bank, that's who!

They're called student deferral loans, and you can take one out for a variety of reasons(up to ten grand). They collect 10% interest a year but you don't have to start the payments until 4 months after you graduate (the presumption is you've done a degree that will earn you a job almost instantly learn u some stuff ok?? ) as long as you have a good financial backer, they don't ask too many questions. Mine is essentially under the pretense it's to help with my exchange, but i haven't had to formally write that anywhere. With the second government loan I should be able to pay the bank off just under a year of taking out the loan. The government loan goes onto your student loans, and student loans don't have to be paid until you begin earning a certain amount, and even then it works with the tax system so you don't notice the payments too badly.

Traveling around a bit for now. I went to Vienna last week. I am going to start working part time for the Red Cross here in Budapest in the beginning of July

Vienna was really nice, it's definitely a beautiful city and whatever. I've never seen such ostentatious displays of wealth. I didn't really do a ton of sightseeing though, I basically just did graffiti during the day and then went to bars at night, but I had a really good time and met some cool people.

I guess none of the really ostentatious things I saw were post-Habsburg so probably they are.
