Northern Gall And Second Year Webs

Oh come on! You cannot come to this country and not dance around in the hammering rain at least once!

I love that line. You can also substitiute "this country" for "the north" when dealing with southerners, and "the North West" if dealing with any none North Westerners. In any case the propensity for Warwick students under the influence of alcohol to do the wonderful things I suggest to them remains undiminished. It all added up to a great end of term party in which most of my group got drenched when I demonstrated that, in warm weather, there is little that's more fun than getting absolutely sodden in the pouring rain. Everyone else thought we were mad, although some did follow our example.

In any case, this is more a "I've finished the year" type entry, so apologies if you expected something more profound. But I think I shall soon have my blog mojo back as I am condemned to a full time summer job and the sense of time to be filled that presents. I certainly have some opinions on recent campus events (the Raffles and Westwood closures, plus the Humanities move) as well as a few other knicknacks of ideas, half formed gems and undecided opinions.

But for now all I want is my results and a moment to reflect on second year, a year I have enjoyed more than first year. For the first time everything has fallen the right way, even the things which hurt and wrenched and ached have turned out for the best. So not everything turned out how I expected, so what? What has worked out has made me ridiculously happy. The way something as geeky as a blog has led me to meet such a range of people, and discover that there are people beyond the Warwick BubbleTM who give a toss about the things I give a toss about. The way joining the Boar has reminded me how much I love drawing, how damn soothing it really is. How the football malarky has demonstrated that a literal kick in the head ain't always a bad thing (results of brain scan proved inconclusive (joke: I have not had a brain scan this year)). And how a little encouragement led to me getting a job I genuinely wanted.


I'm heading for a job, then some major league mooching around, then some more working, then third year. I'm 20. I could ask where the time went but there's plenty more of it around here, so I'd better get filling it.

Citizens, I love you all in different ways. Wear the right factor suncream, eat the right flavour icecream and do your best not to die before I see you again. This is your summer mission.

Sweet as…

  1. Can I die then return as a member of the undead?

    Heya. Thought I should let you know that:

    1) I got home safely, without being drowned in a flood or eaten by a dragon or somesuch.

    2) I took your advice and got myself a blog (see url). I've daringly flouted blogging etiquette by linking you without asking first, as I needed to try out putting links on the mainpage.

    Speak to you soon. xxx

    Did you get your results today then? Got mine from Sarah…

  6. Yup, not entirely happy but not entirely disappointed either. Generally high 2:1s except for one evil 2:2 in European World but a lot of people got bad grades in that. Basically I don't think I can get a first now which is a good thing cos I'll be less stressed next year. Hurrah!

    Hope you're happy with yours.

  9. Have a good summer Hol. BTW, may have missed this at some other time, but what's the significance of the new groupings on your favourite blogs?
