After nearly three weeks of lectures and working almost 20 hours a week, I must say I am shattered.
I had been mentally preparing myself over summer for the shock of actually having to do things, but it’s still always an unwelcome feeling when your planner is full of red deadlines highlighted and circled repeatedly and your washing hasn’t been done for a fortnight. I’m already finding it a hand full juggling the different responsibilities, and I think at long last I’m actually properly worried about my dissertation – as I don’t have a set essay deadline for it for this semester it has taken a backseat amongst my numerous essay, presentation and portfolio deadlines.
Still, I’m glad I have my job – to add to the stress my car broke down last week… there goes student loans. Rent also went out, so there goes my overdraft again. It’s times like these where I really do feel like a student – so naturally I bought some clothes off ASOS with my student discount (I’m taking the approach that you have to enjoy these things while they last!)
This is just a short post to show you all why I’ve been absent for a couple of weeks, but don’t worry! There will be some topical posts coming soon. For now… I’m going to bed for a well deserved sleep!
