I can not believe it's nearly then end of the first year.
At the start I planned to write in my blog at least once a week and bore people with updates on my siberian husky puppy and wedding preparations. Now, two weeks into a very short six week term, my husky (Pixie) is nearly 9mths old and I get married in 9wks!!!!!!!!
I'd like to say that being a student with the comfort of going home each night has made things run like a dream (no rowdy parties and drunken 19yr olds banging on your door at 3am), but I know I've missed out. My on campus friends have a little net work of their own, they have fathomed how to use msn (which eludes me still) and if that's not enough, they're minutes from each other to explain things in person.
But it's not just help with work I miss, sometimes I'd like to be banging on someones door at 3am too… (no one in particular, I'm an old, soon-to-be-married woman).
It's not all been bad though. I've written some well recieved lab reports and got respectable marks in exams. There have even been times when I've been the one explaining stuff. And I really do love going home to Tom and Pixie each night, you can't beat puppy cuddling.
Good luck to everyone in the exams, I'm feeling quite positive about them (ask me again an 3 weeks…).
If I don't get time later on, see you next year xxxxx
