August 26th classes start for me, and I'm attending McLennan Community College here in Texas. Just going for basic courses and then transferring to University of North Texas afterward. I'm taking a full-time load, with 16 credit hours earned by the end of this semester. I have taken dual-credit courses from MCC while in high school, so I do have an idea of the difficulty of college classes. I do have a job, where I typically work an average of 35 hours a week. I do need to work around that amount to afford my car payment, phone bill, and I pay my entire family's car insurance bill. (Father says it is akin to me paying rent)
Will I be able to balance being a full-time college student and working near full-time at a job? Has anyone done something similar to this? Advice? Anything?
depending on the classes you should be fine. obviously if you're taking classes like Calc 2, Physics, etc. you'll have a harder time, but if it's just your basic classes you should be good.
Was I the only one that hated in seasons 5 and 6 when they had Karen doing the voiceover part for the show's intro when she would say "...his name is the Doctor, and he's from somewhere else..."? I just always thought that "from somewhere else" part sounds so stupid.
I'm curious about the next companion. I'm assuming Clara will be there for the regeneration but I don't see her being there much longer.
It's hard to tell. Some are only a companion for a season (or less if you count guys like Jack Harkness) others are there for 2 (Rose) or even more (Amy). The thing is you don't want the show to fall into a rut if it's the same actors for too long, which is one of the great things about the show; the ever-changing dynamic.
Generally Christmas/Special episodes are bit of a disappointment I've found, with only The Waters of Mars being worth the watch. The one last year was pretty good but the snowmen didn't really get much of a look in after being shown so much in the trailers and that seemed like they tried to ramp up the suspense when there was none.
Yeah they usually are. I don't know if it's just because they kind of have no point, and aren't really part of the season's plot or anything.
I wouldn't say it's bad writing, it's just very cheesy and honestly would've probably came off a hell of a lot worse if David and Chris weren't such great actors.
I think some of the RTD hate stems from the fact he was the showrunner too, so any pitfalls from the show were blamed on him. Like Moffat mentioned in one of the comic con panels, you become hated when you take the reigns and I think he's a good example of that. It went from a loving Moffat's episodes to hating his writing.
Poster's Log: Day 3 and still no word from TS. He hasn't return from the sexy redhead's lair, and there is no word on this unidentified friend he was bringing with him. We now believe that he may have suffered in the best possible way, death by snu snu. May god bless his soul, and no longer virgin ass.
Hey guys TS' friend here, just got back not too long ago from the ginger's house. I have work later on so I needed to get ready, he's staying there until later in the afternoon. anyways, he did bang her but he was pretty nervous so I held his hand while he was pounding away. I swear my eyes started watering for a second cause I felt like a proud father. What ruined it for me though was the fact that she hadn't even shaved...
lol barrowman as the doctor? yeah, I wouldn't mind it other than the fact it would make absolutely no sense.
speaking of barrowman, does anyone know which of his accents is his natural speaking voice? Cause I also moved from Glasgow to the US at about the same age, but I've got this weird hybrid of american and scottish accents, but if you hear his american accent you think he was probably born and raised there, and the same if you hear his scottish accent.
