Weekend – again.

I’ve been doing revision most of this week. Been getting up at reasonable hour, sitting at my kitchen table and getting on with it. Sort of losing motivation yesterday and it was sunny so me and Esther went and sat outside and did notes out there for a while. Revising with someone else does help sometimes but you do sometimes get talking about topics not associated with the notes you are making more notes on.

It’s also Morse weekend on ITV3 and I’m a big Morse fan so I may be sitting here for some time. Doesnt get work done but in between episodes I can do something… probably

Bit of a pointless blog there but I felt I had to write some stuff on here – just no idea what. I cant seem to get into the habit of writing a regular diary thing or just writing my thoughts and interesting things. My posts on here are a bit random. I need a better writing style if I want to write interesting stuff on here. I never seem to be very good at getting points or opinions across without rambling.
For instance – this.

The struggle for first place

Been feeling a bit ‘time of the month’ today. Last night I was feeling a bit stressed because of my last bit of coursework not being finished. I wanted to get revision done and I hadnt picked my third year project yet. It’s difficult living with other students with different revision patterns or methods and different abilities sometimes. I’m not stupid, I like to think of myself as quite clever but sometimes Jess does rub it in that she did no work for her A levels and got A’s and B’s and some of us had to work and still didnt get the right grades.

In the first year of uni, some people did not a lot of work, were quite happy to go out drinking the night before some exams and still got a first for the whole year. Not me.

Second year exam time and I know I need to get high marks in some modules to get a good grade, some modules are a bit easier but I still need to revise properly. Now Jess has decided to do lots of work because she needs to ‘do well’ and has to get a first. It’s weird when people expect to get top marks and if they get the second mark down, they think ‘Oh no, I got a rubbish mark’. Blimey

I know it’s different standards but I’ve never really been the one getting the top marks in everything. In some things I did but I felt really proud and special because I got a B on something not a C. I never acted like getting a B was normal, and I knew I was going to do well.

Anyone else feel like they have to work much harder than some people just to be at the same level?

Happy Birthday Blog

One year ago I started this blog. Not blogging in general as I had a blog over at 20six before this one.
It has served me well


I’ve added a new page to this blog entitled photos. I’m slowly putting any nice pics I’ve taken up there. Still needs some work – mainly cus they are all in a list goin down the page. I need to link them to different pages for different galleries but I need to get my head around the fiddliness that is a wordpress uploading tool.

Anyway enjoy them.

Some scary statistics
