So I have been looking through the three books that I have bought in order to research for my dissertation… The fourth one was out of stock! So I have no idea how long I will have to wait for that one, which is really irritating because it is the book that I want to read the most!
And I have read one out of the 16 books for one of my modules next year and I have started another one. SO slowly I am getting somewhere with all of this stuff! 😀
And whilst I haven’t been doing work I have managed to watch series 1-8 of House. It was brilliant! Loved it! Hugh Laurie is just awesome. And after I’d watched all of those I started to watch True Blood, I’ve been meaning to watch it for ages and just never got round to it! But I have done series 1-4 of that! So I am getting lots of TV viewing down at the moment!
Been keeping very busy whilst I’ve not been at uni so far!!
Essay handed in on Monday and then exam on Thursday and next week I have an exam on Monday and an essay to be in on Tuesday. So much to do but when this is out of the way everything will be a lot calmer. Will just have to prepare and write four essays for the beginning of May. Which means back to library days on a Wednesday so I can try and get as much done as possible over the next three weeks before Easter!!!
So it’s Thursday, probably my worst day of the week. I am in uni 9am – 5pm :'( It makes me upset! Ha, on the upside though I have a 2 hour break in the middle to chill out and do work.
I am currently sat in The Hub with my friend and housemate Jenny. We had to be hawk eyed to grab a seat, it gets really busy in here around this time, luckily though we have managed to grab a couch!
So work that I am planning on doing, I have just taken out 3 books from the library on animation. (I do a module dedicated to animation) One book is on Genre & Authorship, another on Anime and another about Understanding Animation. These are in preperation for my exam that is in 3 weeks and also an essay that I have to write for December. I’m thinking I am going to write my essay on Anime and Disney cartoons. Which should be fun, in theory.
Thursday is an even busier day for me too as I usually have to rush back to my student house (a 20 minute walk away) grab all my clothes and dash to try and get the ten to six train to Preston (the train station is a 10 minute walk from my house). I tend to go home (Blackpool) on the weekends or to see my boyfriend (he lives in Preston and goes to UCLAN) so I manage to experience 2 different sides to uni life. I have to say Ormskirk is a much more pleasant environment but there are up and downsides to both which I will discuss throughout this blog.
