The approach of the Christmas break brings mounting work and looming deadlines. Lecturer's love of setting deadlines at this time of year can only be attributed to...er...their love of marking over Christmas? Somehow I'm not convinced, but, whatever their reasons, it's inconvenient to say the least. As if life isn't demanding enough at this time of year, managing Christmas shopping with extensive social demands, we are now forced to squeeze actual work into our busy student schedules!
So with uni work, shopping, socialising, the occasional lecture and my school placement, I figured I would be at a loss as to how I could spend all my free time. With this in mind I thought it was about time that I started a blog because, let's face it, when there's work to be done everything else seems so much more interesting! A blog seemed like the perfect excuse to take a break from planning and writing assignments. My old distraction was facebook, but, having realised that it consists of largely the same comments, from the same people, every day, it has somehow lost the ability to entertain me for more than a few minutes at a time, also blogging allows for much lengthier rants, the excitement! So, decision made, it was just a case of finding a suitable site, setting up an account and putting fingers to keys. All in all not too demanding. I think I could get used to this, but we'll see.
Consider this my introduction and I'll try for something a little more engaging next time!
