So been home over the weekend, i spent most of it playing on my wii with my parents lol. We’re so crazy cos we can play on it for hours on end! My dad still has holiday leave until the 16th which is why he’s so free to play on the wii with me if you were wondering lol. I think it still because of how novel the wii is to us, the first time we played together we spent around 5 hours just playing Wii Bowling lol! Now we’ve started playing Tennis together as well and my mum is so hilarious when she plays, she thinks she’s playing the real thing and stands up and moves around the room lol! But yeah i guess the novelty of it may wear off soon, though if we get some new games we’d probably still play for ages hehe.
Anyways other than playing with the Wii we went yum cha on saturday morning/afternoon. It was still really icy that day but there was still quite alot of people there, and i saw some teachers from the chinese school i used to go to. I’m guessing chinese school was cancelled and that was why they were so free to go yum cha. It also happened to be the headteacher’s birthday and the other teachers arranged for “sau bau” to be brought out. It was nice until the tachers got very loud in their conversation and everyone could overhear their weird conversation topics – which were really off putting if you keep in mind that we were eating! I found it really irritating after a while, and my table was right next to theirs so there was like no escape D: and to make matters worse they were STILL there even when we were leaving.
But yeah, it’s been a lovely relaxing weekend at home. I brought my books back to do some work but i haven’t touched them, i’ve got wednesday, thursday and friday practically free though so will probably do my work then. I’m kinda disappointed it didn’t snow today as they predicted but i’m also kinda glad since i really don’t want to be snowed in and not be able to make it for tuesday’s lectures since all my lectures are on that day and rescheduling them will probably be a b*itch.
Well the weekend is now officially over. A new week means a new start and i’m gonna try my best to cut down my procrastination! Wish me luck! =P
Grr. Today my replacement lecture seminar was cancelled yet AGAIN!
The reason? “Bad traveling conditions” because of the snow, AGAIN.
I really don’t accept this as a reason for my lecturer to not turn up, the first time around i could accept it because the snow was actually really heavy and it would have been dangerous for him to come in, but this time i think he’s just being a lazy fuck.
The conditions were fine today. The roads were gritted and fine to travel on, and the trains/underground have been in good working condition since Thursday, so really no matter how he travels in from south london, there really was no excuse for him not to turn up.
As the lecture seminar was cancelled again, the essay deadline has been pushed back yet again. I suppose i should be happy about it but it’s just pissing me off, i just want to get the damn thing out of the way. I’m meant to be done with this module already and now its just lingering because a new lecture date and deadline has not been announced yet. I really cannot afford to be wasting my time with this essay anymore, i need to get my dissertation draft done for the first week of February and i’d rather focus on that.
This whole week has just been a waste of time. I should have just gone home after my 6pm lecture on Tuesday. But anyways my dad came to pick me up after i told him my lecture was cancelled (and that’s how i KNOW the roads were fine to travel on).
But at least at home i feel less like a zombie because back on campus i’m just refined to my room since there’s not much to do in this kind of weather.
It started snowing last night and everyone got what they hoped for this morning – schools were closed. However i did not enjoy being “snowed-in” as technically i was not snowed in.
The plan today was to go to the lab at 12 to test a baby, so i thought i could have a lie-in, but i got a call at 8.30am from my supervisors [who are husband and wife] and told me they were not coming in since they were stuck in the snow and that they would just work from home. The two other people i work with also couldn’t come in because of tranpsort/unsafe conditions to drive in. I’m the only one who lives on campus, its a damn curse! I had to go into the office to sort everything out – call up the mothers booked in for today and reschedule them then call up more mothers and book them in. I actually spent 3 hours in the office all by myself, it took THAT long to just reschedule things and book mothers in.
I SERIOUSLY REGRET GIVING MY SUPERVISOR MY NUMBER.
Gahh this dissertation is getting really tedious and we have literally no data, well close enough to no data anyways. Time is not on my side, i need 30 babies and my draft is due in for the beginning of next month. Plus i still yet have to start this essay that was orignally due for next week, but due to the snow 2 weeks ago the essay seminar was cancelled and the deadline was pushed back, the replacement lecture is this Friday. I really hope its not cancelled again >.<.
As i wished for last night, my lecture was cancelled today! I set my alarm for 11.30am just so i could wake up and check my email haha and low and behold, in my inbox there was an email sitting there sent from my lecturer. The good news is that because today’s lecture was meant to be a seminar for our essay next term, the essay deadline has been pushed back! ^__^ today is a good day~
The good thing is that overnight it didn’t snow much and we weren’t snowed in today so the uni was open as usual and i could still go to the office and hand in a paper copy of my essay! I’m sooo relieved now, i’ve FINALLY finished this term and begun my Christmas holiday!
Will be off to my friend’s for a Christmas party/ leaving party for a friend at 6.30pm, so i’m off for a quick nap and then start getting ready. I’m really tired cos i only got about 5 hours sleep since my flatmates got drunk and really loud at 5am! >__< Then i woke up at 11:30am to check my email and couldn’t fall back asleep since the cleaners came in to clean the bathroom.
Anyways, hope everyone is celebrating their last day of term!
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!
