Summer lovin'

Finally, the summer holidays are here!  Assignments, exams, lectures and tutes are no more for three whole months!!  In the mean time, all I have to do is wait patiently for the results and deal with two moody, hormone-ridden teenage girls and an over sex-educated eleven year old boy. 

After our earlier enlightened conversation regarding orgasms, on Friday night at a family birthday dinner for SH No. 1, out of the blue he proceeded to regale us with the somewhat explicit details of a sex change procedure on a male wanting to be a female.  I thought my mother-in-law was going to choke on her cake!  Yesterday on the way home from school, he informed me that AIDS started because men were having sex with monkeys.  A scientific fact?  I'm not sure.  Something an 11 year old needs to know?  I think not. It might be time for me to take a trip to the school and speak to the powers that be!

Two down - one to go!!!

I no longer feel as if I'm melting under the study load - I just feel exhausted! 

I completed my nerve-wracking New Communications exam on Friday morning and even though I got there in plenty of time, once I sat at the computer I couldn't stop my hands from shaking!  I walked into the room and for the first time in the whole Semester, the tute was full - I think I was the last to arrive for a change.  I had to find a computer that actually worked - well, they all worked but were so slow and I convinced myself they weren't working.  I changed computers twice before I was satisfied I had one that wouldn't freeze halfway through.  Anyway, after the initial 10 questions where I had myself convinced I was going to fail dismally, I breezed through and managed to get 31 out of 40 - in twenty minutes!

This morning I handed in my last Great Books essay after spending all weekend fighting off a urinary infection while trying to finish it.  I'm not all together satisfied with the final result but I'm so tired, I'm beginning not to care.  I felt almost free after I handed it in and really wanted to do something exciting.  I had no idea what - just SOMETHING!!!  God, I think I've become so boring - the only thing I know how to do any more is study!!!  I thought about going into the city but then couldn't be bothered so I came home and printed off my History assignment due on Monday.  See?  Told you - BORING!!!.  At least I have a week to finish it and then I'll be as free as a bird!!  To do what, I'm not totally sure.  I think I've forgotten how to have fun!!!

I've done it!!!

Well, I've finally done it!! Got accepted into Uni AND created a blog!!! After searching for insightful websites to help me tackle my journey into academia at my ripe old age and coming up with nil, I decided to start one of my own. I hope this blog will encourage anyone who has ever doubted their own abilities, to put one foot in front of the other and achieve their ambitions, desires, matter what they are. If anyone has any inspiring stories to share, I would love to hear them. I love an inspiring story!!!
