Good to be back!
I’m sure this puts me in geek territory, but I am sooo happy to be back on campus! After five weeks of ‘break’ (read: studying, essay writing and stressing off-campus), I made it back to campus today to turn in an essay (relief!), sit in on a revision session for my core course and reconnect with friends!
I suppose I hadn’t really realized just how much I missed my SPD girls, but seeing their faces today seriously lifted my spirit! I have noticed recently that I haven’t taken enough time out to just laugh, and being around them never fails! After our two hour (productive) revision session, we grabbed coffee and spent a couple of hours chatting. Catching up, story telling and chatting about our love lives never seems to get old. Our upcoming plans?
2) A 3-day weekend trip to the Lake District for some R&R
3) Visit E. in her hometown of Dublin during the last week of June
Right now my focus is exams, but I think if I put myself to a schedule to ensure that I have goals to stick to (I work best that way), then a couple of little trip before exams won’t kill me! It might be good to give the brain a rest <3
Also, went to pick up my student loans today and got a lot more money than I had thought… I guess the last disbursement is bigger than the others. The thought of trying to lay out a strict budget was beginning to pain my soul, so knowing that I have a little more flexibility for the next few months lifts a huge weight off of my chest! Phew!
Lots of love (& laughs) from London,
