April 22, 2006
Feels lots better to have done over half my final year.
Three 15cat exams in 3 days is never nice, although 2 were a bit mediocre (shitty by my stupid overly self-imposed standards), 1 went well – so feeling a lot calmer. Slight annoyance since I thought I was massively prepared for them all – but hey, maths exams are never easy…
Ok my brain doesnt work right now (which is a small issue for revision over the weekend for 2 smaller exams on monday) – and I cant speak properly, or focus – but calmer. Next week I can concentrate on doing my poster, bumming round, and booking my gap year.
On that note – I'm actually really glad I've left it until now – since a 3 week trek in Nepal is looking preeetty unlikely at the moment – riots and unrest and all – so i now again have the choice of which way round the world I go. But this can all wait for next week.
Generally otherwise – not really had time to think about other stuff (e.g. career) last few weeks – shall be leaving that till later this term (after exams).
Hard to explain – but I can already detect the wind-down / finality of it all – and it depresses me somewhat – I quite often find myself reminissing about what uni has meant for me.
Parents are awesome sometimes – food aid packages of chocolate brownies (half 70% cocoa chocolate, half Bournville), easter cards, news clippings and even a Cd. I miss being home sometimes (food is boring me already – only 2 weeks since I got back). Though Easter was very quiet – didnt actually see any of my school mates (unlike xmas).
Anyway – playing some hockey tomorrow morning – really need the exercise – and I miss the routine too.
All I can say is "bring on Monday" – there is a damn fine bottle of Polish vodka waiting next to my computer.
