Venerable Member, Male, from The Netherlands

Wha? Life TEXP: 0. Month TEXP: 10. Even disregarding the 180,000 disappeared XP, that does not make any sense whatsoever... :P EDIT: Ah, it works again. :P Mar 21, 2019 at 10:49 AM

      For crying out loud. I spent my gap hour to finish text for a presentation for tomorrow, then when I come home, the file suddenly disappears from my usb stick... now I have to do it all over again... :/

        Luckily it wasn't a big assignment, and the information could be found easily, so it didn't take too long to remake, but still frustrating. :P

      So, form results show that either you voted twice or someone voted for you. Either way, I deleted both responses, so if you could vote again, that would be lovely :)

        Honestly not sure which it is - I keep forgetting whether I've voted or not... >.< that vote from earlier today was definitely me, though. Thanks for letting me know, I've voted again. :)

      My phone doesn't want to turn suddenly. Sigh. EDIT: there we go, fixed it. It ran out of battery, and for no reason didn't want to charge properly. Oh well.

      You IB diploma? I just did 2 certificates for Bus Man and Eco, although I am “taking 3/4” of the base courses. What did you choose?

        Yup - I'm doing IB English (ealls). The rest of my subjects follow the Dutch VWO (highest level) program. Only the international department of my school does other subjects via the IB program. :)

      So I have to do this super important assignment for English. The main task has to be 800-1000 words long. Mine is 999 words. I win at life. - EDIT: after fixing some things, it went up to 1003, and then I got it down to 1000, so now it's perfect! :D

        Oh. Don't try to hide words in white, constrict margins, change font type/size, make footnotes superbig if that's applicable to what you're doing. Those are very cheap (and old!) tricks everyone knows about and know how to check for.

        I had a few people try that on papers I graded in grad school!

        Just go about it honestly and get someone really good with grammar checking to help you consolidate if you need it. :)

        Hehe, nah, don't worry, I didn't use any weird tricks to change anything. :P I believe I've only done that once, and it was only changing the spaces and dots from size 12 to 12.5 or something (and it wasn't an important thing, I believe it was like 5+ years ago)... :P

        The rationale for this task had to be 200-300 words... it was 298, but then I looked for somewhere I could add 2 more words, found somewhere, and tadaa, 300 words exactly. ;)

        Rome was more than amazing! :D
        I arrived back home just after midnight on Sunday (March 18). :) (which was the "worst part" of the trip; having to return. :P)

        I actually really liked it, haha. :P I was glad we finally turned home. But many others weren't. ;) The trip back was also nice; on the final bus trip I had some fun conversation with Lanata. :)

        No, but since roaming costs for mobile data in Europe were removed, I can now freely use it whenever I want. :D It was great for helping us out with taking the bus, this way we didn't have to walk nearly as much. :D

      Whoops new latest bedtime.... (I live in The Netherlands is all that I'll say... >.>) My presentation is done, though! Ended up creating 1979 words, quite a bit over the needed 1500. :D Just realised that I should totally try to get it ip another 21 after sleeping "long".... :P

        lol, yeah, I guess that too, unfortunately (people definitely won't sleep before 23:00 and breakfast is at 8:00 but before that you have to go out to seek more breakfast because the stuff they (the place we're staying) give isn't enough and then you leave at 8:30 so lol great. Oh well. :P

        If you stand before the pantheon, there is one to your back right side just around the corner of the plaza. That is the one I was talking about, at least. It had over 150 different tastes when I was there

        Oooh I didn't know there were two in that plaza! The one I was talking about was behind you on the left side (if you stand the way Haastregt described) hahaha

        It's probably very good there are two, though - it was really busy the summer I went. ^_~* Sounds like either one would be a great choice if you get the time!

        I had to get out of bed at 3:30 when I had my trip, we had to be at the airport at 5PM and I had an hour travle time. It was quite nice though to be so early because that means we basically had an extra day in Rome :)

      I give extra maths lessons to someone three years below me. Just did 2 hours and 15 minutes straight. My goodness, that was long, but it luckily still went really well. :) And on a Friday even, when everyone else is already lazy on their couch at home. ;) He's a good student. :)

        Aw, that'd annoying. I hope you did get paid, regardless of the bad outcome. :P My guy really wants (and needs, to be honest) my help, and it helps him a lot, so that's nice. :)

        For those lessons I did not get paid because that was when I still needed to get some hours for 'maatschappelijke stage' >.>
        But even though he did not get a good grade, it still helped him to at least push far enough to do something for his later tests.

        I was definitely in the process of getting it in the charger - I had stopped using it, and went upstairs a bit later to plug it in. Almost in, *bzzzzz* *turns off* *grrrrrr* >.> :P

        @Sach, lol that works :P I remember when I searched everywhere for my faster charger once, but couldn't find it.... turns out is was literally lying about 40 cm down from the outlet, as I'd already put it there.... >.< :P
