The Weekend Blog
14th February 2015
And that is my life right now.
Even the picture above was taken for dissertation purposes. I was a bit annoyed because the weather was terrible for photo taking this morning, and then when I was walking back from town it brightened up1
Friday was the deadline for a draft copy of our research project/dissertation. My draft was nowhere near complete because I still have a lot of work to do. The real deadline is in two weeks. I’m refusing to take a deadline extension despite being offered one because of my hip issues. I know I can get it done on time. A little every day for the next couple of weeks and then it’s done.
I missed a field trip this week because I didn’t want to risk more damage to my hip. I’m glad I didn’t go because apparently there was snow on the ground. Instead I stayed at the flat I worked on my project while finishing off series two of Orange Is The New Black (which I LOVE!).
I went to meet with the lecturer who gave me a low mark. I went in there feeling so prepared, ready to argue, and I left trying to fight the tears. I’m s**t at being the tough guy. He didn’t change my mark despite my very valid points but he has said that it will be remarked by the person who just happens to be my tutor and dissertation supervisor. Here’s hoping the marks go up.
So, today’s Valentine’s Day, but we don’t celebrate it any more because we can see right through it. We’d rather save money not buying cards and gifts, and spend money on spending some time together doing something fun, like going out for a meal…not on Valentine’s Day when you get ripped off.
If you love someone you should celebrate all throughout the year, not just one day.
Tomorrow Tyrone and I are off to the Echo Arena to see Top Gear Live, which will be a nice break from doing coursework. I hear it’s a great show so I’m feeling excited.
Have a great weekend!
