You can get IP's if you do or say something that pleases our beloved Indie.
They aren't too common anymore, though. Also, I don't think you could win anything with IP's, only Indie's appreciation.
My random thought: WHY DID I EVER EVER EVER START ON THIS DEGREE, IT. IS. SO. FRUSTRATING. And I'm only a week in! Ah well, it'll all be over by the end of the schoolyear. It will pass. I hope. Oh god. Why?
I don't want to get up at 6:45am to make it to my 8:30 class. But ALL of my classes are compulsory. BLAH.
