Work is coming out of my ears again and recently I’ve been really unwell… and yeah it’s stress induced. What can I say… I push myself so I do well. Next week, week 8, I have a formative coursework plan to hand in (which is part of my summative coursework – which counts towards this years overall grade), a summative composition to hand in, along with all of my other Russian and Spanish homeworks (one of which is a Spanish translation and I need to spend extra time on if I don’t want my meticulously picky translation lecturer to mark down again!).
Other than that, I’ve been feeling a lot better these last couple of days, and this was definitely boosted by a lovely visit from my parents today. They came just to see me and we went to the Old Firehouse, everyone’s favourite place to go in Exeter. The food was amazing, and it was great to just see them again. I know I don’t have long to go until the end of term (4 weeks!) but it was a great refresher.
Mum brought me some oats (from ASDA – they are my favourite brand). Just in time too cos I was running out! I find the ones at Aldi taste a bit like cardboard personally and it would be hard to bring it back in my rucksack/bike basket! I’m hoping for a new bike before next year – maybe with panniers or something. It would definitely help with the trips to Aldi, which will be longer as my flat is going to be on the other side of campus!
I’m looking forward to next year. I think it’s going to be even better. I love being at uni, don’t get me wrong – but I guess its a lottery who you get to live with in your flat and sometimes the tension really makes things hard. Especially when there are 12 of you in a small space. It’s improved a little, but at least next year I’ll be with closer friends – and the banter will be priceless 🙂 It already is in our Facebook chat!
So yeah – week 8 begins this Monday… More Russian will be shoved into my brain (we’ve just learned to tell the time and judging by the vocab lists online I think we’ll be learning days of the week and months of the year next), and more deadlines will be getting a little too close for comfort.
No new recipes yet – although I might post my Mac ‘n “Cheese” one if I can keep some in my bowl long enough to photograph! (It’s so good!). Laters……
