The Sunday Blog: Lazy Week
2nd March 2014
I’m starting all these new blog series to give myself motivation to blog, and to stick to a routine. This series is known as The Sunday Blog, and the idea of this is that I will blog every Sunday and talk about what I’ve been up to that particular week, and what my plans are for the following week.
My university doesn’t have half term or reading weeks which means we work non-stop from holiday to holiday. It’s hard work, and so we are all over excited when we get a couple of days off in a row. Depending on the modules people have taken this year on my course, some people have managed to get a whole week of this week as certain lecturers are off on a residential week with the first years. Unfortunately for me my timetable isn’t quite so lucky, so I had every day off this week except Wednesday. Still, one day out of 5 isn’t bad. 😉
Having this time off has given me the chance to relax, as well as doing a little coursework now and then when I feel motivated. I’ve spent a lot of time coming up with new blog ideas and messing about with the new layout (which is on its way, I promise).
I also got a little creative and make some comic book style shoes. If you follow me on Instagram (empfire6 [1. Yeah, I made up the word ‘empfire‘ but still someone manages to steal it for their Instagram name.]) you might have seen some pictures. I plan on writing a post with some better pictures in the coming week.
Tyrone and I went to a comic book fair today so that I could get some resources for making some more comic shoes. A lot of the stalls sell the not-so-popular comics for 50p each so I bought a few that I thought might make good shoes. Unfortunately I didn’t get any new Harley Quinn ones for my collection. 🙁
As I was about to submit a piece of work this week, I realised that I had lost my student ID. I was so frustrated as I’m not normally the type of person to misplace things. I’m very organised. I re-traced my steps and as far as I can remember the last time I had it was at the cinema two weeks ago. Yeah, I know, shows how often a go to the library [2. You need your ID to get into the library at uni, print work, take out books etc.] Anyway, I went back to the cinema and checked lost property but there was no sign of it. I had to go and buy a new one, which fortunately they printed and activated straight away for me. I could have got it for free if I’d reported it stolen, but I couldn’t be arsed with getting in touch with the police just for the sake of £10.
Tyrone and I went over to see our friend Darren who cooked for us on Thursday night. We ended up watching the Wolf of Wall Street, which is a great film but could be much better if it wasn’t so damn long. 3 hours is too long for film!
What do you think of me having blog series at empfire.info?
