Day 581: The 27th of February

Ate lunch today. That is a rarity.

Mondays are pretty good days. Getting up late, going out with the family for lunch and then finishing off with a trip to uni for a lecture. The worst part is the rush hour train home.

I did make it back though, so it wasn’t the worst it could have been. I am ridiculously tired though for some reason. Need to get some sleep tonight.

Enjoy your Tuesday everyone. I shall be endeavouring to do the same.

Day 580: The 26th of February

Well, I eventually got my work done. Took a little while though.

So I decided to take the liberty of playing a variety of games today, putting off my work until after I eventually decided to have a bath and shave. Turns out that as soon as I got back, everything fell into place and work went a lot smoother. That just leaves two tutorials to prepare over Tuesday and Wednesday, which should be pretty straightforward. Plenty of time.

I also managed to go to bed with half this post written and still in a separate tab. What are the chances? I did think to myself while I drifted off to sleep: ‘did I actually make a post tonight?’ but I just assumed that I had finished it.

No one needs to know. Have a good Monday.

Day 579: The 25th of February

A nice day off. Quiet and peaceful.

Didn’t really do much thinking today. That is the best time, when you can just do what you enjoy and not be bothered at all. Played Oblivion, For Honour and Dark Souls 2, amongst other things.

It’s days like these that keep me sane through the stress of university. Honestly, it would be so easy to get burnt out, like I was back in first year. At least now I know exactly how much work is expected of me in each of my tutorials this year. Sadly, it seems that I have a group of tutors who all expect lots of interaction in tutorials, which is great when I am in a group of people who barely say a word.

I guess I’m going to get some sleep now and work on some tutorials tomorrow. Also need to write up my Tort notes from the lecture. Can’t let my revision guide slip already. Have a good Sunday everyone.

Day 578: The 24th of February

I’m so tired. Even moreso than I was yesterday, despite spending less time at university.

Was just the stress of tutorials. Really takes a toll on my morale. The only stressful part of this course and the biggest pain in the ass.

At least I got to hang out with the best people this afternoon.

I’m going to bed now though, so I don’t die. Have a good Saturday.

Day 577: The 23rd of February

Today wasn’t bad.

Got 6 hours sleep or so. Had university, though one tutorial was cancelled. Went out for lunch at TGI Fridays with the gang, mostly to celebrate their results. Still hadn’t looked at mine at that time.

Trains were worse than normal, due to the storm that was raging across the country. Eventually got home and ate, before looking at my results. Got three 2:1s and a 1st. Not bad, if I do say so myself.

Finished off my tutorial work and am now prepping for bed. Got to get up at the same time tomorrow, though I get home earlier. Might get 5 hours if I get to bed now. Have a good Friday everyone.

Day 576: The 22nd of February

Another day, another dungeon.

And by that I mean it was a day of doing partially work, partially looking after Corwin. I started the day off by hitting Reputation 2 on For Honour, then I finished Tort and had a nice long bath.

After that it was mainly looking after Corwin, with a side of doing some Equity. Still need to finish the last few questions off tomorrow, but that shouldn’t take long.

Writing this post rather early for me, at 9:30 PM. Got to sleep soon, since I am up at 5 AM yet again. Hopefully I can get a reasonable amount of sleep for a change and thus survive the days ahead.

Anyway, shan’t be long before the morning comes. Let us all have a very fine night’s sleep and a good Thursday. God knows mine won’t be good.

Day 575: The 21st of February

Got some more work done today. Actually vaguely understand EU after doing some reading.

Still have to finish off my last two tutorials tomorrow though. Should be alright, got a little more Tort to do and then have to do some Equity. Thursday and Friday are going to be joyful.

Plan is to get some sleep tomorrow night, so I don’t feel like death all of Thursday. If things go well I should actually be able to live with myself. Might be nice to get an early night for a change. Got to make sure all my work is done first though.

Other than work I spent most of the day playing For Honour. Way too addicting for my own good, really. Almost reached Reputation 2 on my main class. That is level 40, in other words.

Anyway, I am going to go to bed now. It is late. Have a fun Wednesday everyone.

Day 574: The 20th of February

What a day. I was irrationally angry for a long time.

So Southern Rail wouldn’t allow me to order my tickets online last night or this morning, despite me getting a call from the fraud squad this morning and verifying the purchase. Ended up having to withdraw some money on the way to the station and pay with that.

Trains were alright, lecture was pretty bad. I got through it barely understanding anything, which is a sentiment shared with most of those I spoke to. Then I got the train home.

Walked back from the station and ate at long last and started to feel a little less frustrated. I still am though. I can feel myself being noticeably worse at otherwise easy tasks. Probably for the best that I write this evening off and get some sleep.

It has been a day. Let’s hope you all have a good day tomorrow though, eh?

Day 573: The 19th of February

Oops, I did it again. A bit late tonight.

I shan’t write for long, given that I do want to wake up tomorrow. It has been a quiet day, of playing games and doing tutorial work. I was going to do more but Southern Rail and my bank decided to be annoying.

It is, however, time to sleep now. I do still have to go to university tomorrow after all. Have a very fine Monday everyone and to all a good night.

Day 572: The 18th of February

Little bit tense tonight. Been an interesting day.

I was dragged out of bed this morning to go swimming. Was a bit of a kerfuffle at the pool too, with a class on and about 500 people in there simultaneously. Eventually it cleared out a little bit and I did some lengths to show my old swimming teacher, much to my displeasure.

There is something about pools. I think it is that subtle feeling of being watched at all times. It is just a bit unnerving. I remember getting told off by a lifeguard once. I know that they are just trying to do their jobs, but it doesn’t mean I have to like them.

Anyway, I came back here and played some For Honour. Then I was given Corwin whilst his mother and father went out somewhere. I entertained him for a few hours after that. I do enjoy his company but afterwards I do need a little time to recharge my batteries alone. Especially when he has been stressing out over his parents being missing.

Not thrilled about the prospect of starting tutorial work tomorrow. Has to be done though, else it isn’t going to be done. It shouldn’t be too bad in all fairness, it is still early in the semester.

I’m now going to try and let out some tension while I lie in bed, listening to some tunes or something. Enjoy your Sundays everyone.
