About a week to go, in my marshmallow socks.


This particular part of my room is a mess of old clothes (which I tell myself I’ll do something with), ugly pillows (which my mom has lovingly collected over the years, bless her) and ill-planned electrical configurations (which da Lord knows I have no idea what to do about).  I' still have about a week and a half of exams to go and so far it’s gone surprisingly well, save for History of Books, a subject that caught me off guard with a panoply of complicated technicalities which obviously escaped me until I’d turned my paper in and wailed a long, screeching “NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO” in my head. Anyway, perhaps it didn’t go as badly as I think, but fact of the matter is that this whole deal has made me quieter and far less upbeat than I was at the beginning of the week when I scored an unexpected 17/20 in my Sociology of Art exposé (based on this awesome essay on asylum art by Anne Bowler).

Vacationz, people! That’s all I’m talking about, really!

  1. Hmm..exams are killing me too. You are still looking rather lovely too.

    I actually volunteered to work at 4am... Because I just stayed up (don't sleep anyway) and they paid me double AND I got the Saturday that I usually work off, paid! & I needed the revision time. I despise Stephanie Mayer, but was fun in an oddly surreal way. But no I don't work in Waterstones, Blackwells actually, so if you do get your job back you will be my highstreet-book chain enemy!

    Haha...good luck with the rest of your exams!
