June 12, 2005
Woah, it's been ages since I've blogged…
Finished exams on 23rd May which was good but it feels strange to have no real ties to the university anymore (except the dreaded results of course, and hopefully graduation!). I still feel like I'm going to be coming back for another year in September, and it terrifies me that I won't be.
First year of uni sucked so much that I am amazed I stayed here but things got increasingly good and now I don't want to leave…bloody typical! The 'real world' is a scary place, I am not ready for it and it definitely isn't ready for me. I have no job, no desire to have a job and absolutely no idea what kind of job I want, but hey, things could be worse.
Post-exam celebrations are blurry. Had a great day with mel, helen and anisha, pizza, 2 trips to the Coventry fair (yes, two trips in one day – not my idea!!) and for all my searching there was no Zoltar machine, and Top Banana rounded off the day. Getting to do my impression of Kate Bush's 'wuthering heights' was a personal highlight, as was getting our picture taken for uni hot-shots, purely because the poor guy had to take our picture about 12 times as Helen couldn't keep her eyes open – no change there then!
The last few days have been spent recuperating from Adam's trip over from Belfast to experience the joys of Birmingham and Leamington. That week was mainly spent intoxicated, watching dvds and playing tournaments of bishi bashi special (I kicked both gareth and adam's butts). The least enjoyable day was spent watching 'The League of Gentleman's Apocalypse', we are all big fans of the tv shows, but the movie was lacking in the one thing that made the show good – jokes. All in all it's been a good way to get over the stress of exams and to block out the fact that the 'real world' is knocking at my door. Now I have to look forward to cleaning, packing and travelling back home to Belfast with my dad in a big white van (6 hours of driving and map reading with my dad – joy of joys!)
Now Im off to enjoy my last two weeks in England, who knows where I'll be this time next year…probably trying to get back into uni!
