May 20, 2006
So I’m sitting in Leamington’s library. A nice place near home where you can actually find a place to sit without difficulty on a Saturday afternoon. This way I can get up a bit later and still motivate myself to study a bit without having to waste nearly an hour getting onto campus.
I have finally motivated myself to write a two-hour mock exam. In a somewhat nervous and fidgetty fashion strangely similar to the real thing I have a last look through my notes. I have made an essay outline so clever and dynamic that it can tackle even the most trickily phrased questions on coming Wednesday’s exam. And then, five minutes into my time, a voice over the intercom announces:
(echoy voice) “THE AFRICAN DRUMS PERFORMANCE, PART OF THE CULTURAL WEEKEND, WILL BEGIN IN FIVE MINUTES, DOWNSTAIRS IN THE LIBRARY”
What a peculiar arrangement, djembes in a library. We should try that in the Warwick library sometime.
