Gotta love the NHS
Follow-up to Dammit, Why are we back at uni so early? from Anyone Can Post On The Internet
You really have to love the health service in this country. Especially our local hospital in Cornwall. My mother has managed to have her operation (which she's been waiting for for roughly 18 years) postponed twice at short notice but that's nothing compared to today.
The girl who I was writing about previously, and have since visited again to find that we now like each other even more, was supposed to be having an operation today. This was cancelled all of, ooooh….half an hour before it should have begun, well after she had been sedated. I managed to spend all day worrying, especially after a phone call when she'd first been sedated. Then I have a very upset girl who has been waiting for this operation for quite a while crying to me down the phone in a very sedated state.
Gotta love state provided public healthcare don't you?

Dammit, Why are we back at uni so early?
Is it really too much to ask that term starts on Monday? Seeing as we are paying Warwick £193,000,000,000,000,000 or some other ridiculous amount per term to study here, is it really too hard to actually have a 10 week term.?
I have to admit, I'm not that bothered about being here for 10 weeks, my main problem is that after this holiday, I would really have liked to stay in Cornwall for a few more days.
As with many problems for men, this was caused by a woman. Over Christmas I ended up seeing a girl who I really get on with, am really attracted to and enjoy spending time with. And vice versa. But then I have to come back here, and now I miss her a ridiculous amount, and am so annoyed that I'm dragged away. I've only known her since the day I went down to Cornwall, so about 3 weeks, but I've really started to feel for her. Having been dragged up here, I could really do with it being worthwhile, but my timetable for the next 5 weeks is ridiculously slack, and I end up with 2 free days a week, so I'm starting to question just how much it's worth me being here, especially when I'd much rather be somewhere else.
Don't get me wrong, I like being up here and enjoy meeting up with people again and getting back into the usual drunken routine, but I could definitely have done with a couple more weeks down there.
