"Do what I want cause I can and if I don't, because I wanna be ignored by the stiff and bored, because I'm gonna"

You would think that basically being a uni dropout would mean less work right? J has been 'studying from home' this semester which she imagined would involve smoking and drinking in her backyard while blasting Guns N' Roses and watching grunge documentaries. Yet somehow, even though she doesn't have a job, she seems to spend more time at the local library looking up journal articles than hanging out in the sun. What's up with that? A thought doing just 1 subject this semester would be peaceful (bringing a whole new meaning to the term 'part-time student') but instead she keeps getting dragged into every public speaking/mock trial (called a moot- what the fuck) event on campus and spends most of her time researching obscure areas of law. L is a 'real' part-time student, so she's just got the 2 subjects this semester so she thought she'd really be able to apply herself. No so. A has decided to use L as her 'researcher' for her current projects. At least they seem to be getting along. After one of their particularly heated competitions they went out for 'a few beers' afterwoods with a few uni mates. Of course a 'few beers' for A is more like 15 and she was singing along to the jukebox with the bartender while L sat awkward and mostly sober in the corner.

J has started an affair with a handsome married man she met at a classy restaurant after attending one of Druggie's friends birthdays. He's probably the typical scumbag married guy, hitting on hot younger girls and telling them his marriage is falling apart and he's considering divorce. J doesn't really care what he says. She's not exactly looking for him to leave his wife for her and certainly doesn't believe he will. She's just enjoying a guy who can afford to buy her expensive cocktails and is good in bed. It's a good change from her old boyfriend who didn't have 2 dollars to rub together. She does feel a bit guilty about his wife but figures if he's such a blatent cheater there relationship isn't that great anyway. But for J, there's always the risk that her old hook-ups come back to bite her in the arse. Her and A have been hanging out a lot at this rock club in town and having a lot of fun. Until one of the guys J hooked up with when she was dating Motely Crue appeared out of knowhere. We shall call him Wow, since he's a bit of a freak and a gamer. She had a bit of fun messing with him, flirting and then being a bitch, while A picked a fight with him because she is a bitch. Now the old hook-up is appearing everywhere, including in photos with A and J that they can't recall. Ah, the effects of alcohol. Well that and A's recent drunken photobombing where she grabs any opportunity to appear in a random's photo. If only he would disappear but now that he's a promoter at their favourite rock club it just doesn't seem likely.

A has still been regularly hitting the sheets with V, although she refuses to talk about it other than the bare facts. Even G knows nothing about it and they live together now. And she's still making eyes at other guys in clubs, including the Bon Scott lookalike she made out with last week. It was his crazy eyes that got her. And possibly the 5 Wet Pussy shots.

M's still with her boyfriend but getting increasingly annoyed with him. He didn't show up to an awards night where she was nominated for an award and felt a bit disappointed about it. He's still contantly sending text messages though. She's also been spending a lot of time with the newly single E who is searching for a girlfriend a bit lower on the crazy scale.
