Warning

I’m going to make this breif:

The folding tables in lecture theatres that so neatly pack away, are not your friend.

Never. Trust. A. Lecture. Table.

The support and aid you think they offer will be ripped away leaving your belongings and heart to tumble down the slope of embarassment, for no reason.

They are fickle things.

You have been warned.

It’s week 13 ….again?

So it’s that time of semester again: that time where emotions run high and motivation runs low. For that matter, it’s that time of year too: week 13 of semester 2 invites the exciting prospects of summer and a whole few months free of uni. Yes, there is much to look forward to. But, and I don’t know if this is just me, does it seem too soon for this already? For me, it seems like only a few weeks ago I was bidding a fond (cough, cough) farewell to, shall I say, “certain” units, “thrilled” at the opportunity next semester would bring. It doesn’t seem like a whole semester has passed since these emotional partings. And it certainly doesn’t feel as though I’ve had an entire semester’s worth of knowledge bestowed upon me. Yet, here we are. Hence arises the anxiety that is week 13.

Boredom Busters

When I make my timetable for the semester, I try to have an hour break between long blocks of classes so I can give my brain a rest.  While this is all good for the first 10 minutes, most of the time I find myself in the library falling asleep over my notes desperately wishing I’d brought my laptop to trawl Facebook for some goss and daily lols.  Boredom has struck!  I used to think I’d be busy 24/7 with uni work (I should really get into doing the weekly readings) but now I’m just bored. Chairman of the Bored.  However, I’ve come up with a few things to stop that boredom bug from biting again!
