The first letter demanding council tax arrived, and it really struck that I am no longer a student. It also made me angry. OK, so I get angry without much provocation but reasons why the letter made me go grrrrr:
1) It means I am no longer a student.
2) They claimed it was a reminder, gave me 7 days to reply and covered it in red ink.
3)They addressed the letter to Miss K Bray. K!?!
Reason 1 isn’t really their fault, and I suppose if I am that desparate I could save up and do a Masters in something vocational and useful and thus return to studentdom.
Reason 2 might not be their fault, as the initial bill may have got lost in the post, so they thought I hadn’t replied, but the overuse of red ink gave it a threatning edge… though not to the same extent as TV liscensing… but the seven days was a bit unpractical as I had dissapearded acroos the sea. But when I rang up they said ignore this letter because we hadn’t recieved the first one.
Reason 3 must be their fault. Because we didn’t recieve any previous letters I am presumbing that they got my name from the electoral register. This means that they got the information from something I wrote. Now, I am not the greatest speller, I freely admit it. Just reading this blog is evidence that it’s a bit crap at best, but I am sure that I can spell my own name, and I am sure that my handwriting isn’t so bad as to make a C look like a K. So reason three is due the the sheer incompetance of somebody working for the council and I think I am allowed to be annoyed… and sod you if you don’t agree.
Ofcourse now it is all sorted they are resending the letters in a less threatning manner to Miss C Bray I am no longer angry. But I going to see what my council tax gets me and check if I’m getting my moneys worth…

Streptococcus, Staphylococcus and Micrococcus are little bastards.

Today I noticed my deformed little finger. It is the product of several weeks of hardcore revision. I think it's called littleuspinkiusnodulblisteritis…
Hmmm, it looks worse in real life.

Sat here doing my revision. There is no obvious sound of traffic, I hear this noise that sounds really familiar and a birdy cheeping away and it reminds me of being in Carraroe, seeing the boats go out to the Aran Islands. Cos thats what the noise was. It sounded like the boat engine… but then it came back to me that I have 2 exams tomorrow and I don't have time for fanciful nostalgia.
Have also worked out what I am good at. I can take really complex systems and bring them down to their fundamentals, so the complex idea is something really simple and basic, with very little detail at all… however, I can't do the reverse.
Anyway back to stinky pants revision. This crap will at least be over by Tuesday afternoon. Thank Feck.

Tea consumption is up. For roughly every two hours of revision, I'm drinking a mug of tea, though I have maxed out at three cups in an hour. This means I am doing little revision and a lot of tea drinking. Fact.
Revision is really quite bad at the minute. Fact.
I think that the only thing I have taken away from todays work is that it is all downhill from 25 yrs old (biologically speaking). Great. 2 and a half years before the rot sets in.

When little brother left today I did some more work on my presentation. EEK! I'm dreading having to talk to a group of people.
Some people are naturally good at talking. I'm not. I'm definitely more of a listener. I'm not good at expressing my point… which is going to be a bugger for the
interrogation questions at the end.
…and I go red. I'm rosy anyway, but in these circumstances I go red. Bright fucking tomato red. And I know I'm going red, so I get redder! And then some bugger tells me that I'm really red. I fucking know I'm red!!!! I can feel my face burning!!!!
…and I'm trying to find pictures for this awful event, and there are only so many pictures of stem cells that you can show before it gets a bit tedious.
But oh well, its all good "charachter building" stuff…yes…

I had an excellent holiday, and being in Leamington just adds weights of DOOOOOOM to shoulders. DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!
New Year was spent in Dublin with Lovely Boyfriend and his family, who are also all lovely. Happiness and optimisim a-plenty at midnight, got mildly drunk so as not to repeat previous years performance. Then we stayed up till the wee hours competeing on the playstation and getting progressivly more drunk, before heading to bed and waking up without a hangover …Oh yeah… If that is how the rest of the year is going to plan out then HOORAY! But I doubt it…
Was rushed at home, but whole family managed to sit down and enjoy a meal together before Little Brother and Da had to work and I had to get the crap back to Leamington. To our lovely mouldy house.
Thats right folks. Mould in the carpets, mould on the ceiling and mould on the walls. I'm pretty sure it's a Health Hazzard of biological weapon standing. We've been sporeulated. As the tiger says; "Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrreat!

I read in The Metro back in early November that Fairytale of New York by The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl was being re-released for Christmas. However this seems not to be the case. Which is a pity, because if it had been re-released it would be played on the radio more often than fecking Last Christmas and other sap filled festive songs. Oh well.
In sort of related news… I read in some magazine (yes I should be reading text books and science papers but c'mon!) that Shane MacGowan, front man of The Pogues, was being named for Big Brother 2006… Hmmm.

Had my first tiny breakdown of the term today, you know where that thought creeps in "I shouldn't have come back, what do I seriously think I am doing here?", or maybe thats just me?
As I sat down in the library with essay description sheet and the starter references, it occured to me that I have NO IDEA WHAT I'M DOING!! so I pushed the problem back into my bag and came home.
I'm 2 years and 4 weeks into my degree, now it's time to push on, attack from all angles, and focus on the good things. For example; I am really enjoying the modules I'm doing this term.
See? Stay positive…Easy…
