The All-Nighter

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.

(#12) Weeklies

Whew! What a week!

I started out the by listing the assignments I needed to do and which were already done.

Done:

  • Textual Intervention 2 Essay

To Do:

  • Fiction For Children Creative Piece
  • Textual Intervention 2 Creative Piece
  • Creative Voice 2 Essay
  • Creative Voice 2 Creative Piece

To Do With Group Members:

  • Fiction For Children Presentation
  • Scriptwriting For Mainstream Television Script
  • Scriptwriting For Mainstream Television  Presentation

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.

Enough about school! Here are today’s Weeklies:

A Writer’s Crisis

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?

My Trouble With Superheroes

I have reached 50 followers and 100 likes. Thank you so much.

The one that started it all: My first superhuman character.

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.

Well…

Paris Stops The Crying

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.
