Lovestruck, I’ve fallen for a lamppost
10th December 2012
This week I have been getting my assignments back that I had to complete a few weeks ago. Turns out I did much better than expected:
- I got 100% on my Fundamentals of Scientific Research assignment (and I thought I hated statistics).
- I got a 1st on my glaciation/striation assignment.
- I got a 1st on my natural disaster case study assignment.
- I got a 2:1 on my wind speed/biology assignment.
A 1st is the highest degree you can get (honours is something that I don’t understand yet), then a 2:1, then 2:2 and finally a 3rd. I am feeling pretty impressed with myself for my results. I did much better than I actually thought I had done. I mainly lost marks for incorrect referencing. I was using the method I had been taught at college. By the time we had our tutorial on the Harvard Referencing system I had already submitted all of my assignments.
I’m currently revising for a multiple choice test I have on Friday. It’s worth around 30% of the module so it’s quite important. I’m hoping it all goes well, even though I hate exams so much.
On Friday night I went to see Madness in concert. Tyrone got the train to Liverpool after college and straight away we headed to the Echo Arena. We had seats so really we didn’t need to be there too early. However, when we went to get our tickets checked, we realised that we had been given a seat upgrade. Instead of row NN we were on EE, which was an improvement. I bought a tour t-shirt which had the dates of the tour on the back. Before the show they were showing music videos on two large screens. They even played So Lonely by The Police which I was loving, of course.
I don’t know who the supporting act were but they were awful. The majority of the people in the audience were bald, middle aged men (see how I naturally fitted it ) and they all booed once the supporting act had finished. Shortly after, Madness started. They were amazing! For those of you who don’t know any Madness songs (I don’t understand how this is possible) here are the links to Baggy Trousers and House of Fun. This is classic British music and I feel very luck to have heard these songs live.
After such a good time at the concert, Tyrone and I discussed bands that we would love to see in concert. We have pretty similar taste in music so we named a few of the same bands. One of which was Kaiser Chiefs. When Tyrone got home on Sunday night we Skyped and Ty said that standing tickets were available for Kaiser Chiefs at the Manchester Apollo. I had a look for myself and seated were also available (I usually buy seated tickets because I can’t stand for long periods of time). Impulsively, I purchased the tickets. I really can’t complain about the price. I know I’m suppose to be a poor student and all that, but seriously guys, Kaiser Chiefs. Seriously!!!!
