[dropcap]S[/dropcap]o I’m sitting in one of Durham’s many cafés and my laptop is on about 30% battery so hopefully I’ll get this all done and posted before it dies and I have to go home. I’ve just handed in an essay that counts for 50% of a module, which means that I’ve actually finished some of my last year of university. 20% of my final year is done and dusted. Finished.
It was a bloody hard essay. Interesting but really bloody hard. I’m glad it’s done, but it probably won’t mark especially well. Oh well. Just another essay and a presentation to go this term (all of seven days). Then I hit the dissertation hard.
As you’ve probably noticed, I haven’t been blogging very much at all. I’m not sure why.
I’m not sure whether its a time thing (I do definitely have time), or whether I’m just lazy (could be that). I think the main reason is that I just don’t think I have anything to say at the moment.
I’ve been massively off my game. My content has dropped, my photo quality has dropped, my general zeal has dropped. My instagram has suffered, despite continuing to grow in follower numbers, and I’ve barely touched twitter. The whole life online thing just hasn’t happened in a long time.
It’s weird thinking that a year ago I was all about this. I was in my flat in Paris writing posts about everything and anything, travelling Europe and generally having a blast. I’d hit my stride and was smashing life. Now, I’m exhausted from being back at uni, in the library ’til midnight, scraping deadlines and generally just having a life.
I’m not sure where this post is going. Nightmare.
Basically I think it’s just a long list of apologies and excuses for being so absent over the last few weeks/months.
With the Easter holidays coming up I might be able to set up a backlog of posts again, like I did this term. That way I can get through the dissertation and exams, and then carry on myself after it’s all over. Fingers crossed.
