Day 868: The 11th of December

I was free! Saved by the snow!

Woke up and got washed and dressed as usual, despite feeling exhausted. Was gazing out the window at the snow falling down softly and decided to check my phone. And it was then when the miracle happened. All the trains from East Grinstead were cancelled.

No uni for me today, instead I just played some Breath of the Wild. Then I had to look after Corwin for the afternoon, during which he mainly napped, so that was fine. It is so nice having a snow day after years of nothing of the sort. Truly a great experience.

I am loving life as of right now. Tomorrow I shall buy Christmas presents for everyone, after which I will be fully prepared for the season. Good times.

Day 867: The 10th of December

I am already acting as if I am off for the holidays. Admittedly, I basically am.

Still, I didn’t get time to really do shopping over this weekend, so I shall be saving that fun time for Tuesday or Wednesday. Then I plan to order everything I need and get it all sorted at a reasonable time for a change.

I have ideas for presents for quite a few people now, with only a few notable exceptions, which I plan to fill in with a day of thinking on the topic. Should be a good Christmas if I can get everything on time.

Day 866: The 9th of December

Just such a relief to have a weekend with no work to be doing. At least no uni work.

Instead, you get to meander through town, eat some food and then have a laugh or two. Just nice, wholesome fun. Which is continuing tomorrow. Should be a good day, in theory. Currently I am more looking forward to my lovely bed, and the possibility of listening to something interesting as I drift towards sleepland.

Day 864: The 7th of December

So close to the freedom of the weekend. Then I can actually start worrying about important matters.

I shan’t keep you long, I want to toodle off to bed after I do some printing and I thought I’d take a few minutes to update this blog in the meantime. Weather is pretty bad, uni is alright. Enjoyed teasing my coursemate over a few hours and just generally goofing off. It was good.

Day 863: The 6th of December

Another day.

I got most of the important work done today, sorted out some stuff and then kinda slowed to a crawl after finishing a couple of important tutorial preparations. We are so close to the end, just two more full days of uni and then next week will fly by.

I will get Christmas shopping done soon too, so I can put my worries about that to rest. Then I can focus on getting a head start on work and actually get a decent grade for this semester, in theory.

Day 862: The 5th of December

It really feels like the end of the semester. Everyone is winding down, finishing off the last bits and pieces we need.

Today’s lecture was purely on how to answer questions in the exam, which was nice. It is helpful to get that done now, so next week I have less to do. I shall be actually doing more work over this holiday I believe, just to see how far I can boost my potential grade. We will see how it goes.

Still, before I start working extra hard, I shall have a restful week of just meandering through a couple of lectures next week. Just finishing off the last little bits. Tomorrow is actually going to be my last day of working hard for tutorials, so at least that will be out of the way.

Day 861: The 4th of December

And now, we start the final proper week of uni before Christmas.

No doubt I will end up going in next week anyway, but at least I only have 4 more tutorials to prepare for before the holidays. That means I can do one last push to get them all done and then have a little bit of time to just sit down and rest.

And by that I mean start preparing for Christmas. Hooray.

Day 860: The 3rd of December

Another nice day today. My weekends are getting to be quite busy, it turns out.

No longer do I have a regular two days of doing nothing. Instead I am out and about, doing all sorts. It is pretty good, other than taking up a significant portion of time that I would normally dedicate to doing uni work. Instead I resolve to do my work throughout the week.

Well, my train tickets are booked, so I guess I’ll go to bed. Have an enjoyable night of rest and then continue the last major week of uni before the Christmas holidays.

Day 859: The 2nd of December

Today was nice.

Woke up late, had lunch with Emma, Ben and Corwin and then bought some stuff and played on the Switch all evening. Just good, wholesome fun for a Saturday. Tomorrow shall be on much the same level of busyness.

It is already fairly late tonight, but I have a couple more bits and pieces to do before I call it a night. Still, this is one of my activities that I have fulfilled.
