wooohoooo – done / finito / no exams (well for 4 weeks) :D
great to be rid of them – only 3 in summer too
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.

Ok was revising late – listening to Classic FM as always – bit bored of my work – so decide to do the "late night quiz" (there's 2 or 3 a night)
Question was find words that fit _ _ _ _ I C _ _ so me being a practical person shoved that in an online crossword solver – with about 15 answers. Sent them off to Classic FM (email) – to then be told ON AIR about 2 minutes later:
"Richard Taylor in Edinburgh, you used an electronic solver didn't you?"
but still – WOOOOO !!! nice getting ones name onto national radio :D
plus Classic FM (as I'm sure for those of you who know me know) is my fav station
so one happy (and tired) tayaaahhhhh

This is going to sound sad – but concentrating on revision, and coming back home from "holiday" isolation in the lighthouse has cheered me up enormously. Nice to have internet, msn, piano, nice bed etc again
Maybe just looking forward to getting back to uni. Maybe its cause im happiest working away really hard / learning stuff
How sad am I … hehehe
