The Weekend Blog
21st February 2015
Less than one week to go!
This time next week my dissertation will be submitted and I will be another step closer to leaving uni. Hooray!
My motivation is rock bottom and it’s pretty annoying. I mean, I’ve worked so hard to be here, I don’t want the reason for doing crap in final year to be my motivation and distractions like baking cakes (Yes, this has happened this week).
I don’t think my dissertation is good enough, but for someone who has tried their best while dealing with many external issues I think I’ve done damn well.
I could have quit. I’ve felt like quitting. I know people with the same condition as me who have quit. But there is something inside me that has told me to stay.
I reckon that ‘something’ is 10 year old me. She was a fighter.
This week I got another piece of coursework back with a mark of 72%, which I am very happy with. I’ve also submitted another piece of coursework meaning that there are just 4 piece of coursework standing between me and the finish line.
My friend Becky came over to visit on Wednesday and we attended another postgraduate fair. I’m still not convinced it’s something I want to spend my money on. Well, not just yet anyway.
We went to a lovely cafe for lunch called Nolita Cantina (Bold Street, Liverpool) for huge pulled pork sandwiches and bottomless fries. I’d highly recommend a visit. Afterwards we had tea and cake in John Lewis. We’re a sophisticated pair.
I ordered some business cards a couple of weeks back ready for a blogging event I’m going to next weekend. After over a week of no show, I checked out my tracking details and found that the cards had apparently been delivered by Yodel. Either Yodel lost them or someone stole them, but either way they didn’t turn up. When I contacted Yodel they promised to interview the driver to find out what happened, but nothing materialised.
Vistaprint kindly sent me a replacement box with UPS who failed to deliver the first time around, saying I wasn’t when in fact they hadn’t bothered to ring my flat. Eventually, after many angry phone calls and emails, I got my cards. What do you think?
I thought I’d point out that I am wayyy behind on returning and replying to comments. I’ll be back on track once my dissertation is done. Promise.
Have a great weekend!
