I am currently a happy chap as all my exams are now all over (barring any September resits in the worst case scenario). I had my last one on Saturday morning. Analysis on Wednesday was not as bad as I feared it might had been, it was still hard, but I could do a fair amount of it and have no worries about getting the 15% in the exam to pass the module overall. Maybe 40 or 50% for the exam is on the cards. My last exam was Mathematical Programming 1, generally it was a nice paper, a bit different to previous ones and the fact that there seemed to be a mistake in the simplex question didn't help. Overall though MP1 was one of the better modules.
On Saturday after the exams my parents stopped by for a bit (as they were passing nearby), it was nice to see them and I also got a meal out and they paid for a Tesco trip! I saw them in the afternoon and then got together with a few other MORSE people in the evening. I slept most of Sunday but went out to the bar in the evening for a few hours, which was a fun.
In the last few weeks a lot of music that I wanted has been released, so i've spent a fair amount of money. These have been the DVDA version of Deadwing (got it for the great bonus tracks) and another Porcupine Tree album; the reissue of 'Up The Downstair', the Screaming Trees best of, Turin Brakes' new one 'Jack in A Box' and also the new Coldplay should be here tomorrow. I finally signed up to eBay and got 'The Mantle' by Agalloch, which was only a fiver and is very good, a mixture of post rock, black metal and folk! A bit like Opeth in the way there is metal vocals as well as clean singing and noisy parts and quiet parts. All this music has helped keep me sane while doing revision.
The exams may be over but the term isn't. There's lots of birthdays this week, so there will be Top B tonight, a BBQ on Wednesday and a visit to the theatre on Saturday (how cultured!). I'm also trying to convince John to drive up to Alton Towers on Thursday, if he does then that should be a great day. I didn't realise how close it is, it's only 60 miles away. On top of that there may be a trip to London and visit back home for a couple of days.
