Yesterday was my twentieth birthday… Twenty. Wasn’t ready for that one. I can’t tell you how much I’ve been absolutely milking the “I’m still a teenager!” excuse over the last few weeks.
The day was actually surprisingly enjoyable. It didn’t rain (SHOCKER), I had cake for breakfast (told you I wasn’t ready for my twenties), and I went to the theatre. We saw a student production of Lord of the Flies put on by the university, which was actually really good. They moved the stage so it was sort of in the middle of the audience, which worked really well, considering the story is set on an island.
Regardless of all my not-a-teen-anymore-sadness, I’m determined to start off this decade the way I mean to go on. That means getting a hold on all of my work, getting writing done regularly, looking after my health (I’ve basically had an eternal cold since about six weeks ago, and I think I moved right from one onto another…) and trying really hard to stop procrastinating on Netflix as much.
But speaking of… how good was Stranger Things season 2?!?! Best thing to have been released all year.
I think I’m doing alright on the work front. Yes, I was supposed to have finished an essay this weekend rather than be about to start it, but other than that, I think I’m on schedule. And anyway, if I finish this essay tomorrow, it’ll still be a week-and-a-half early!
This week should, theoretically, be a productive one – one of my modules isn’t running because my tutor is away at a conference, and I’ve already done basically all of my module reading aside from one play. I thought I was alright at speed reading during year one, but I have seriously sped up this year! I suppose it’ll all be in preparation for third year. I plan to fill the time with blog planning, book writing, and cleaning the house. Oh, and applying for summer work! I’m hoping to get a position abroad, so wish me luck.
For now though, an essay calls…
