I’ve missed blogging, if i could i would update everyday, but then again when there isn’t anything blog-worthy, what is the point right?

Well i’ve finally finished doing my second essay and shall be handing it in tomorrow! It started snowing whilst i was trying to finish off my essay and i so desperately wanted to go outside and play in the snow, it really didn’t help to hear other students running outside my halls. But i finally finished my essay at 8pm, had my dinner and then went outside around 10pm.  I felt like a child again, but to be honest i don’t even remember playing in the snow much as a child. But yes, snowballs were thrown and snow angels were made, it felt like such good release after finishing my essay. It was good to hang out with my friends and the atmosphere was so happy with everyone on campus running around, making snowmen etc. It really feels like Christmas is upon us now, let’s keep our fingers crossed that it shall be a snowy Christmas!

On the other hand i really hope we won’t be snowed in since i still need to hand in a hard copy of my essay into the office, so fingers crossed it wont be closed!

I’m gonna cuddle up with a cup of hot cocoa and catch up on my series now. Hope everyone wraps up warm!

Note to self: buy a wooly hat

One step forward, two steps back

Haii~ Having some major writer’s block at the moment. Can’t seem to focus on doing my essays at all, and when i do try, the attention is only very limited. I’ve done reading about the same parts so many times but from different textbooks and its just so confusing. I thought i made progress with the whole essay writing thing when i finally completed my first consciousness essay, and i felt like i was equipped with the correct tools to tackle the two next essays, but it turns out that’s not even remotely true. It feels like i’ve just regressed and gone backwards, instead of becoming more efficient i’ve become less and less productive. And the worst thing is i have no idea how to fix it.

If only writing the damn essay came as easily as blogging, every word just flowing out effortlessly. I suppose it beats sitting an exam. Actually i think the looming deadlines have hindered me instead of making me work better, even though i used to be so good at working under pressure.

The fact that i know i won’t be getting a break for a long time just makes me want to rebel and stop being productive altogether. I have two essays due in for the last week of term, one due for the 15th and the other on the 18th. 18th being the day i break up for christmas holidays. To make matters worse i only get two weeks off for christmas this year and i have to spend it writing yet another essay that’s due in the first week back. Over christmas i’d also have to work on writing the draft of my dissertation which is due some time in February and then the final dissertation is due in March. When all that is done, it will be time to start revising for exams. It feels like i won’t even have a moment to stop and take a breath!

I’m in desperate need of an escape, for fear of going insane!

Reading Week

So its my reading week, and i presume i’m actually meant to do work / “reading” during this time. For the past two years of my uni life i went home for the whole of reading week and never did anything lol, but then again i don’t recollect having any pressing deadlines back in first or second year during that time. Anyways, this reading week is no exception as i went back home on Friday night for a long weekend and also to attend my friend’s 17th birthday party.

I came back to campus on Tuesday night since i have to do that recruitment thing on Thursdays and also i thought i’d actually try and get some work done since my essay is due next Thursday! Eek! But yeah so far i haven’t really done much >.<. On wednesday i did a little bit of reading for the essay and wrote a few things down but then later that night i went over to my friend’s flat for dinner since it was our friend’s 21st birthday and then we all headed to Liquid for the night. It was really fun, just dancing away since i haven’t been clubbing in ages now. But after taking a shot one of my guy friends threw up and he ran all the way outside and threw up some more >.<. He was seen by two security guards and so they wouldn’t let him back inside, so our clubbing night ended at 12:30! Just slightly after an hour we arrived. But it was ok we headed back to my friend’s flat and played games and chatted for ages, and ended up playing Bomberman on her Wii until 4am! haha So yeah at 4am i was like “Oh crap, i need to get going” since i had to wake up at 8am to go recruiting.

So when i got back to my own room, i decided to check my email before sleeping. My supervisor sent me an email saying that she couldn’t go to the recruitment thing cos she fell and cracked her ribs and fractured her elbow, at which point i was just really unimpressed because the day before the girl who was meant to come recruiting with me sent me an email saying she couldn’t go because she had to do training in the morning and the guy we were working with had gone back to spain for reading week so i had to recruit all by myself this morning. Though the upside was that i could give myself a little bit of extra time in bed xD.

So yeah its been another exhausting Thursday, but the night is still young (yes i do realise its nearly 2am atm but meh, its still early for me =P) so i’m gonna try and type up the notes i have into an actual essay!  Hopefully i will get most of it done by the weekend so i wont be panicking over it on Wednesday night.
