The Weekend Blog

25th October 2014

This week I have been so busy. I mean, I expected it to be a busy week but then I kept saying ‘yes’ to other opportunities and now I’m exhausted. Phew!

Keeping busy is good for me though as it takes my mind off other things. I certainly worry less and I go to bed at night feeling a real sense of achievement.

So, here’s what I’ve been up to this week…

  • I went to a quiz night at a pub on Monday with some friends. We came second to last, haha!
  • I had a full day of lectures on Tuesday with a couple of practicals too. I learnt how to measure phosphate and nitrate in water samples, which was pretty interesting.
  • The wind in Liverpool on Tuesday was horrific. I had to put twice as much effort in to get anywhere and my hip has been in pain all week as a result.
  • I had another field trip on Wednesday. This time it was to a river in Cheshire (see photo above).
  • I went to see the play of The Full Monty on Wednesday night with friends, which was fantastic!
  • I had another full day of lectures on Thursday and I fell asleep as soon as I got back to the flat, hence why there was no blog post on Thursday (sorry!!).
  • I finished and submitted the literature review for my research project/dissertation, which is a huge weight off my shoulders.
  • On Friday I had to hop across to the other side of the Mersey for a medical assessment.
  • Tyrone and I finished watching Lost. I knew the ending before I started watching the show, but it still left me full of questions.

Now, time for a lazy weekend without having to worry about my damn literature review!

Have a great weekend!

    It sounds like you had a very busy week! That’s great that you finished your literature review and don’t have to worry about it anymore πŸ™‚ That sucks about the wind on Tuesday though. I hope your hip is feeling better!

    I’m glad you’re able to have a lazy weekend after all of that. It’s nice being able to relax after a busy week!

      Not enough rest unfortunately. πŸ™ But I’d soon be complaining if I was bored with nothing to do.

  3. I love busy weeks. Makes the week go by quicker.

    At least you didn’t come last in the pub quiz! I’ve never been to one, but I’m hoping to soon.

    The Full Monty must have been so cool! I love the film πŸ™‚

    Oh, literature review. How I do not missing doing that. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your weekend!
