Buzzkill…

Tonight (or this morning) I am far from impressed. So I have decided to bring you an early morning quick tip… If there’s something happening in a society that you belong to that you don’t like, make your voice heard and change it! It doesn’t matter whether or not you have a title, if you’re part of a society then you have the right to a say in how it operates.

Democracy ftw. (For the win, less interweb fluent readers)

Also, I haveĀ  a presentation in 6 hours. Eep.

Ramble ramble… Oh look a train!

It’s travel back to uni day! This is an even more joyous day than travel home from uni day, if for a different reason… Travel home from uni day is wonderful because you don’t have to worry about buying food with your increasingly stretched budget, travel back to uni day is wonderful because by now you’re getting withdrawal symptoms from whichever crazy fellow student you spend the most time with!

If I don’t hear someone singing the comical songs from youtube soon I might go even madder… Still, here are some pretties to ward of the longing for dysfunctional uni life:

What’s that pretties? You herald the coming of something even more exciting than Crime Fiction and Writing the Supernatural modules? Well then, I guess I should keep an eye out for the release date of Guild Wars 2 in order to plan a week free of uni work, to honour of it’s arrival!

Yes, there are games coming out next year that I’m so excited for I’m talking to the artwork. Maybe being back at Edge Hill will help refocus my brain! Speaking of which…

I need to go pack, until next time chipmunks!

Boxing Day Blues?

The panic is over! Christmas is done, Father Christmas’s guts are much diminished (if that sounds like a step too far take a look at my last post and all will become clear), and everyone has returned to their normal stations around the house.

But what does an English Lit student get for Christmas? The complete Sherlock Holmes of course! Because Benedict Cumberbatch graces our screens once more in the new year and personally I can’t wait…

Oh, also Batman, always Batman. Because everyone loves Batman (or he beats you up).

‘Til next time folks, most likely different bat-time but same bat-place!

How on earth did that happen?

It’s the time of year for finishing off the last few assignments before escaping to gorge yourself on Christmas goodies, so I thought I’d share my work plan!

Step 1: Read the assignment, normally a few days after the last one was finished.

Step 2: Spend a few days considering the question, and decide whether or not it is interesting. If it is interesting, begin research, if it isn’t, ignore it until…

Step 3: It’s the night before the deadline, so it’s time to write! But not right away, first comes a few hours of procrastination, mostly consisting of youtube and taste of awesome.

Step 4: At around 4-7am it’s time to write, so the essay gets hammered out in a few hours. This goes a lot easier if the question was interesting and I’ve been reading for a few weeks, but it never takes more than a 5 hours to finish an essay from this point even if it’s the single dullest question in existence.

Step 5: Run home, shower, run back, hand in the essay, and get some much needed rest!

And this is what will happened last Friday and will happen next Friday, except there will be no much needed rest because I have another radio show 8-10pm next Friday… So tune in and join in the fun that results from a night of working hard instead of sleeping!

Sleepy Char is sleepy

Mornings suck. They’re cold and grey and lonely apart from the occasional duck. If you go to them you probably haven’t slept and if you sleep you’ll probably be late or well, sleeping. I could swear that tutors deliberately put seminars in the morning so that the average student is at their weakest and most pliable…

More tea, I say!
