Cycling Adventures this week so far…
so recently I’ve gotten very into Cycling again, and try to do at least a 34 mile ride each week. Except this week one of my cycling friends is suggesting we cycle this. Its over 50 miles. I’m going to DIE.
Nice knowing you all.

1 day 3 hours until freedom after 8 months…
Being sentimental… again.
I can’t wait to put the second year of my degree behind me.
I’ve been through a lot of shit this year, and all of it has effected my work ethic and motivation. I’ve worked backwards, literally….. my grades in first year were pretty good. I got a 2:2 in the first term of second year, and then scraped a pass by only 2 marks last term. Kinda worried about the grade I’ll get this time.
But right here, right now, I couldnt care less about grades. I just want to submit this work and write off the last 8 months. I’m not just looking forward to summer, I NEED summer. I can’t wait to be able to go cycling, and be outdoors, and ride the horses, and generally not have to juggle everybody elses crap with the pressure of employment and university study. I just want the world to fuck off for the next four months, so I can enjoy my summer and write-off this past academic year.
I’ve just cleared out the photo album on my phone, no idea what made me do it… just another form of procrastination I guess.
I’ve only had this phone since January, so its amazing how many photos I’ve managed to take (even for a photography student). But its also scary how much has changed in the five months that I’ve had it. I found photos of things I had long-since forgotten.
Some of the oldest photos on my phone, within the first week of owning it (besides the epic snow that East Anglia had in January) were photos of Jessops, and photos of my ex’s dog. Looking back now I realise how different things were when I was in my happy little bubble working there, with amazing friends around me all the time. In a relationship with this ‘super cool’ guy. And now I have none of that. Its amazing how much your life can change in five months.
I’m glad its changed though. It’s been tough, but I’m glad pretty much everything I had up here at Uni has changed in those few months. The new friends I’ve made have been fantastic. They supported me when I lost my job, and provided for me when I broke up with the ex.
Deadline for the final unit of the second year of my degree is on Friday. I can’t wait to hand my work in, and be done with it all. I’m not worried about my grade, so long as I pass. I’m looking forward to final year, and putting this academic year behind me.
