Sleepwalking my way through life: Back in the day...



Back in the day...

An update on my technical situation: Fucked.
Regular contact is being made with the persons responsible, and it seems that I could have regular internet access by this Friday (i.e. another five days) – but you’ll have to excuse me if I don’t get my hopes up.

After staying up to the wee hours of the morning polishing off a word here, a paragraph there, I finally finish my English essay. Staying up until three am trying to squeeze an extra two hundred words out of an already over stretched topic point almost fills me with a sense of nostalgia.

Despite the soul crushing stress and pressure I was under last year, I have to say that – to an extent – I miss writing my dissertation. I even miss it to an extent where I read books and think “Blimey,” (that’s right, I say blimey) “this book would make a fantastic topic for my dissertation.” And I even jot down a plan or two and play with the idea of sending it to my old English teacher for a quick analysis before I throw the sheet away, laughing at my nonsense.

Although I do miss the late night writing sessions (and more than my share of all-nighters) I always love this time the most; this relaxing limbo between essay due dates. This is when I can finally sit back and chill out with my coffee as I plough into a new book, thinking idly that I still have eleven days until my next essay is due, I have plenty of time to sit back and relax.

Of course in eight days time the process will start all over again and I will bury myself in the library trying to learn five weeks of lectures in two days.

Yes, it will be fun.
