I was going to post a review of The Book Thief today, but I’m trying to correct my sleeping patterns. They’ve gotten progressively worse as I’ve stayed up later and later without any 9am classes to wake up for. Yesterday I had the bright idea to just stay up all night until 9pm, but then I fell asleep at noon and woke up at 7:30pm.
On the plus side, I saw both the sunrise and sunset yesterday and they were beautiful. On the downside, I’m officially nocturnal. So today I’m determined to be awake until 9pm this time.
With this probably unhealthy sleep deprivation, I’m not sure how well I can give a well-thought out review of Markus Zusak’s bestseller. Although who knows? Maybe I could.
I started out the by listing the assignments I needed to do and which were already done.

Doesn’t that look terrible? But then I took some of the projects I’m working on outside of school, and decided to make them my Creative Pieces. They got good receptions from peers and lecturers. Moral of the story: To do good in Creative Writing, just write whatever the fuck you want and then make it fit the criteria somehow. Now my To Do (Alone) list has been cut in half. Things are good.
I had planned three posts for each of the past three days, but they all fell through. I’m very sorry and will post twice today to make up for it. Hopefully, things will look up next week.
On Wednesday I had to choose my modules for my third and final year of university. What??? I thought I just started university, like, three days ago! Now I’m planning my last year?
I am in no way prepared to finish school. A lot of the courses for next year sound amazing and I can’t wait for them, but what do I do after it’s all over? When will I see my friends again afterward? What will I do?
It’s not that I’m getting bored of blogging, it’s just that I have an essay due on Monday and I’m tired as hell and there was a party yesterday for Chinese New Year and I had to meet with some group mates and…
No more excuses. Here I am, typing a blog post. Let’s get real. Things have not been going well. I keep messing things up.
I have reached 50 followers and 100 likes. Thank you so much.
This afternoon I was asked by a teacher what I was planning to do for my ECP (stands for Extended Creative Project, the equivalent of a dissertation, which is the UK version of a thesis). He said it was going to be big, something I hand in in March or April of next year, so the idea should be something big, too. Something I was passionate about.
There’s nothing like planning a trip to Paris to stop you from crying uncontrollably.
As any university student (or anyone really) can understand, sometimes there’s just too much to do and not enough time. I know I only have four classes a week and it’s only Creative Writing and I’m lucky enough to be all the way in England so I really shouldn’t be complaining, but I had a small meltdown yesterday. Honestly, I’m not too sure about sharing it publicly because it’s kind of embarrassing, but I figured there had to be someone out there who needs to know they’re not alone.
