Bye Bye Back!


It's 6am, and my back is in SOOO much pain.

I've tried sleeping on my front, back, side, on the solid floor, on the bed, and NOTHING!


It seems my body doesn't like me!

I need some sleep, and my back is not letting me get some!

Student Rudeness

Today in one of my lectures, I was appalled to be in the same group of people as my fellow coursemates.

The lecturer was finishing off the course, and it started. The dull roar that rises as more and more people chat and whisper. Almost none of them were listening to a word he was saying. He went over the appraisal forms we filled in the lecture before, and he was almost shouting to be heard! We had given him feedback, and was the first lecturer to inform us what advice he was taking from those forms, and people couldnt even be bothered to take an interest. The way that he or any other lecturer puts across their information is surely one of the most important issues for all student's, and to give the man no respect at all was just downright mean!

I have to admit, that not everyone was being this rude, but it must at least have been half of the group. That must be a horrible atmosphere to lecture to. To know that there are some people so unwilling to listen seems ridiculous.

We are paying money to attend Uni, and when the few consistantly talk throughout everything, you get the feeling that "Why did you turn up today?". You cant be making even half-decent notes, and you definately can't be taking all the information in, so why bother? There is no such thing as a register here. Leave those of us who are willing to listen and learn alone and STAY AT HOME!

I hate being ill!

Not a happy Matt.

Cough feels like razors cutting my throat.
Nose hasn't stopped running.
Ear is painful enough to keep me awake!

Why, Oh Why, does this always happen at a bad time!

"Rest a few days" I have been advised, but I have labs tomorrow which I cannot catch up on :(

and the MC ball is on Saturday, I hope I'm better by then!


(and where is my mum with the loving attention i'm so used to when i'm ill. Oh, wait, she's still in London. Grrrr!)
