This morning I got an email saying my last two assignments from last semester were ready to be picked up. I got a little excited and went straight to collect them even though I was late for a meeting. It would have been embarrassing if my marks had been bad. Thankfully they were not. In fact, they were two of the best marks I’ve ever gotten in university.
I’ve been putting this off, the first post of the new year. I think I’ve been hoping that by putting it off I’d somehow make the days go by slower, but the opposite seems to be happening so I’m just going to write.
Sometimes I stop and think, do I have too much on my plate? Am I too busy?
And then I add something big to my To-Do list.
I can’t remember the last time I slept in. Is this what my life is now that I’m a legal adult in every country of the world? I don’t like it. I want to go back.
It’s raining, it’s pouring, the day was far from boring.
I had no class today. We were supposed to use the time to write our essays, due next week. Instead, I slept in, posted the Supergirl blog post, took a shower, had lunch, worked on developing a character for a little while (more on that later) and then realized I was running late for a job interview.
Oh yeah, I got a job offer today.
I’m reading again. Not as much as I once did, because with everything I’m trying to do nowadays, that would be impossible. But I am getting lost in stories again, and that is an accomplishment to take note of.
I have a terrible habit of waiting for the last minute to pack before going somewhere, even when that “somewhere” happens to be England and the trip is for an entire school year. The problem is that I just don’t know where to start or what I need to bring and what I don’t need. I know most people reading this have probably already started university, but maybe in the future it will save you (and the future me) that last-minute panic.
I got back all my marks except the one I handed in yesterday. I did well, I think. I also decided on what I’m doing for my Extended Creative Piece today, and finished all my last-minute shopping before Paris (2 days!) so I think it’s been a pretty productive day.
I am currently sitting in the hand-in office at my university. It’s busy, and I’ve just handed in my last piece for my second year. I can’t believe it’s over so quick! I find myself thinking about this time next year, both excited to get it over with, and hoping it never comes. I’m also sort of hoping I’ll get an email saying my other assignments are ready to pick up, because I don’t feel like going all the way back to my room, only to return when I finally get the email. I feeling lazy today. Or tired. Possibly both.
I’m supposed to be polishing up a final draft of my Textual Intervention piece right now. “Textual Intervention” is basically a fancy way of saying fan-fiction. Last semester, this is what I did for Textual Intervention. This semester, the genre we’re working on is fairy tales.
