Current State of Work

Currently...revising. I've got a few exams coming up, so I've been in revision mode for most of my free days, though of course, with the Easter celebrations, that’s been a little more difficult to do. I’ll be on my way home from my parent’s tomorrow, so I hope to be back on track when the … Continue reading Current State of Work

What I Do at Uni: Exam Edition

This totally isn't being posted out of order as the first in a series *shifty eyes* *grins* Well, I am in the slow slow process of writing a post about a typical(ish, as every day is different) day at my university, but I thought, having been in the middle of exam season – where activating … Continue reading What I Do at Uni: Exam Edition

The End Is Nigh

Good luck to all the finalists (I don't know how the system works in other countries, so I guess this is tailored to the UK) who finish their degrees verrryy soon. Me included. 5 exams down, 1 to go. More revision pics. Because revision. Seems to be my life right now. In my gorgeous vintage … Continue reading The End Is Nigh

7 Quick Takes: Exam Confidence

7 Quick Takes Friday is hosted by This Ain't the Lyceum. ~1~ Work at things until they’re rote. If revising a certain topic bores you, you're probably at the stage where you understand it. ~2~ Use acronyms, aphorisms, ascriptions. Start associating the names you probably won't remember by themselves with phrases that you'll be able … Continue reading 7 Quick Takes: Exam Confidence

A Birthday Friday

It's my birthday! My 21st, in fact. In some places that would mean something, but to me, in England, it means nothing. At least my partner and I can celebrate with matching t-shirts 😀 (Made by the cutest of t-shirt providers, TeeTurtle) 3 exams down, 3 to go. All next week.

Finding Time in a Busy Life

Today, I’m sharing this post from Aussie Owned and Read because today is reblog Thursday and this post fits in so well with my current mentality: busy, busy, busy as I push through exams.
Still, I am only two down and four to go, and my days are met with revision not writing. I would like to make time for it, but that is not going to happen at the moment.

I forgot today was my day to post here. Usually we try to have our posts up in the morning, and it was dinnertime when I had an OHNOES moment and realised I hadn’t done anything. Then my son and I had a karate class to go to, so here I am: it’s after 9pm, my legs are tired from kicking invisible bad guys, and I’m drinking tea from a Lady Rainicorn mug and eating crackers and olive dip.

It’s not my finest moment.

I know I should go easy on myself — I have a load of excuses I could give you for why I forgot (single mother working full time, yadda yadda yadda) — but the thing is that, despite everything going on in my life, I am usually pretty good with stuff like this.

How do I do it? I’m glad you asked. 😉

I set reasonable…

It’s a Month Until I Finish my BA

Actually, that title is a lie. I didn’t have time to write this last week and then I forgot about it. But, yes, after three years, I am on the last legs of my degree. It’s bizarre! A weird feeling to think that in less than a month (it’s under three weeks now), I will … Continue reading It’s a Month Until I Finish my BA
