The last half-year of uni is eating me alive :< Got an exam Wednesday, please keep your fingers crossed for me! I’ve had very little time to study, which sucks, but I hope I’ll be okay. I handed in the paper for the course last Tuesday, which was a relief. Also, we handed in our second draft of the introduction to our thesis last week, which was approved of which made it our final draft, too! That sure felt good. However, work just continues to present itself – we’re now working on the methods section and it’s proving to be really tough. Lots of decisions need to be made.
As for Derby, I got real derby skates last week! Really happy with them, tried them out on a asphalt walking trail last Saturday and they felt like pure bliss on my feet (okay a slight exaggeration but compared to the other skates – hot damn!) Wednesday is my next training so we’ll see how they fare, then.
Tim and I went to see the Swan Lake Saturday evening. I gave him tickets to the show for his birthday [in April]. The Dutch national ballet danced and they were amazing! We’d only seen the Nutcracker before (also national ballet), but the Swan Lake is something else – I do understand why it’s so insanely popular. I loved it and now I really want to see it again ^_^. This also leads me to this week’s bit of music, enjoy:
I wish all the school stuff was over :< Man, I haven’t been able to focus on writing (or my blog) since this term started. I hate it. Luckily I’ll have a half-year break from February. Can’t wait.
