These Essays are Giving Me Pimples

My essays are giving me pimples. I have been sitting on my butt in the dining room for nearly 5 hours and I have only written 700 words. I literally have a pimple on my forehead and a tiny pimple and a huge pimple on my chin. I really think its all the stress and the worries I am going through that has caused multiple pimples to appear on my face. It’s a good thing I am not leaving the house until I have to go back to uni for my last two days lol. 

Still, have to write 6272 words and I just found another pimple on my finger knuckle. YAY Stressful Times. 


Last Lecture/Seminar

Last lecture and seminar today before the Easter Break. I can’t believe it has gone so quickly already. I wish I could enjoy the holidays but I have to write the essays and refine my dissertation some more as well as the PDP. I’m glad that it’s nearly the end and I do not have to write another essay in my life after this. But at the same time, I am also scared that I won’t have anything to do after it is all finish so everything right now is kinda bittersweet.

Anyways I’m just gonna try and get through the day and enjoy the last lecture and seminar before it’s time to hop on the bus back home and relax with some Chinese Takeaway with my family and then a long sleep before tomorrow essay writing and tidying the house will resume.

Welcome to Essay and Exam Season

Hey folks! It is that time again where I will have to get up early and never sleep. That’s right we are now in essays and exams season! I still have three essays to write for May and a dissertation due at the end of April so I’m kinda panicking since the essays are still non-existent. But I have just finished going through the first draft of my dissertation (except the conclusion cause I got lazy but I will definitely get it done this week) but these essays are kinda long and I am very exhausted from other things as well. In addition to my essays, one of my sisters is also gonna do her exams this May and June, which she demanded I help her with her revisions (geez bossy) so the next couple of months will be very hectic and stressful. Hopefully, I can do it and resume other things I need to prioritize next such as more job hunting. 

Last Essay Season! 

Pointing in the Dark

If you saw or read my ‘Not a Morning Person’ post yesterday, you would know that I am very cranky in the morning and very sleepy, especially since I woke up at 3am. Being cranky and sleepy does not go well with morning lectures. This particular lecture is related to film (but my course is media studies) and I would sit on the back of the class just nodding along and taking a few minutes nap whilst the film viewing is taking place. I don’t feel like talking or interacting with anyone whatsoever. That’s why I really hated this lecture from yesterday. There was not a lot of people there and so the lecturer made us all move forward at the front. I hate the front! I am too near the screen and I can’t close my eyes and take a nap. Then, here comes the worst bit of all. He forced us all to say something for the benefit of participation. I know that may seem normal cause there was only a few of us but seriously?!! And that’s not the worse bit yet. When everyone had finished giving their answers, I tried to imagine I was invisible while communicating with my brain to think of something to say so obviously I was avoiding eye contact with everyone that moved in that room. So are you ready to hear why this lecture pissed me off?

When everyone had finished giving their answers, my lecturer had actually been pointing at me, like how you would point at someone when they are about to perform on stage and had bulging eyes and raised eyebrows as if to say ‘Come on then, say something’. Of course, I didn’t realise this for five or ten minutes because we were in dimmed light darkness!! Really?!! He was pointing at me in the darkness expecting me to answer a question, looking me as if I’m a freakin weirdo while we were in the dark and I couldn’t see him pointing at me. When I did realise and gave my answer he just shrugged and went okay but a film student that he knows said ‘what my friend said’, he practically applauded him. I was so annoyed! 

Therefore, I have decided that it is best to move on and never go to that lecture again and in turn never see that lecturer again. I am absolutely tired and to be honest, it is now essay season and I need to do my essay so bye! Oh, and next time if you wanted to point at someone in a darkly lit room, maybe you should go and learn their name first instead of pointing at them like a pale vampire that’s overdosed on his blood supply. I mean he has only been teaching me for 2 years! 

End of Rant. 

Not A Morning Person

Good morning all! It is currently 4:46 right now and I am exhausted. I have a lecture/seminar at 9am until 11am today and I’m not sure if I will be able to make it through the whole session. Plus I have a sore throat and a cough so I’m not feeling my best, to be honest with you. I am learnt in all the 20 years I have been living on this earth that I am not and will never be a morning person. I’m more an ‘I’ll just go back to sleep’ person. My bed is one of my closest friends. It’s comfortable and safe and I just get to close my eyes and just not think of anything else even just for a moment. Maybe I should do that now….

But with only 7 more minutes until I have to get up, it is too risky and I will never make it to my class. Also, I better start getting into the routine of waking up early and late nighters, especially with all the essays I have to write. So, I want to wish you all a bright and better morning filled with sunshine and smiles. Happy Monday Everyone! 

Let’s all start the week by getting out of bed (even when you so desperately just want to roll over and sleep some more). 

Back of the Bus

I’m so tired. These guys took my seat where I normally sit and I ended up on the back of the bus. Never again. I don’t like sitting at the back because I knew the bus would get so full that I would have to squeeze past people in order to get out. So I always sit at the front and sometimes the middle but NEVER the back of the bus. That was until today. 

I think today is not gonna be my day. That bus ride to university proved it. I got off from the first bus and walked to my next bus stop. The bus shelter had one person. Great, that means the bus wouldn’t be so full and I could actually get my seat. But no after 5 minutes more people came and more people stood there and the bus was running 7 minutes late. By the time it got there, everyone raced to be at the front and me being a polite person and really tired (I woke up at 4am) let people get on the bus and that was how I had to sit at the back of the bus. The bus became so full that people had to stand and every one of them made eye contact with me as if they say ‘are you getting off, mate?’. I just stared them down, I am at the back of the bus but at least my butt was on a seat (so that’s a plus). 

Hopefully next week I will be able to sit in the front cause the back of the bus smells (literally).
