March 13, 2007
Wow. For about the first time since January I have both a) The time to write a proper blog entry, and b) The energy to write a proper blog entry. So here we go!
Firstly, I just cannot believe how fast this term has gone. One minute it was January, then I recall blinking, and now its almost the middle of March! Maths has been getting steadily more and more depressing all term, and I’ve had an ever increasing backlog of non-assessed assignment sheets to be getting on with (which over the last few weeks I’ve simply not had the time or energy to actually do), and the assessed ones haven’t exactly been fantasic fun either, cough*algebra*cough, excuse me. I survived (just) my essay presentation two weeks back, although I’m fairly sure that I was pretty much completely incomprehensible to everyone else in the room. But I survived, that’s all that matters, and my essay is very close to completion too (just a few tweaks to go then done!). I’m pleasantly surprised how easily the essay flowed out in the end, seeing I was dreading even choosing a topic and fearful of not having the foggiest where to start!
Over the easter ‘holiday’ I’ve got plenty to do, including finish my essay (although I aim to have this done by Friday), do my MNN assignment and revise for 3 exams the first week back. Lovely. And if that wasn’t enough, it’s back to the wonderful world of Tesco too!
Away from Maths, I’m starting to have a pretty good time at Uni. I’ve just had a very fun weekend, with two pub trips, going to Metropolis and the Reckless Moment last night. And I now actually have some decent photos of myself on Facebook!
I’m looking forward to going home now though, if only for a rest, as I REALLY need a change of scenery for a while to get away from Uni and all the stress associated with it, although I think I’ll miss my friends more this holiday than ever before. This is simply because it feels like over the last term, I’ve developed my friendships substantially more than in the past, particularly with my housemates and a few other close friends, and I feel that I’ve come out of my shell a little and become a more outgoing and interesting (to others) person, and I hope people have maybe discovered more about me too.
Anyway, I’m just enjoying a bit of a wind-down at the moment and not going too overboard with work for a while (although I want to get as much MNN and essay done before the holidays as possible), so hopefully I’ll be refreshed slightly once the holidays start and I can get some good revision done for my April exams.
That’s the plan at least! And hopefully I’ll be back soon with another entry. The key word being ‘hopefully’!
