You’ve probably already noticed that I haven’t been posting very frequently over the last few weeks. That’s partly because I’ve had nothing to say, and I try not to blog unless I feel like I’ve got something to contribute to the general mess of words floating around on the internet. And it’s partly because my health has been fairly rubbish.
But it’s also because I’m in exam hell and need to be working more than I currently am, rather than blogging or spending my life online. Okay, so recently I’ve been spending my life in bed, rather than doing work or doing anything more fun / productive / active. But sometimes bed is an inevitable destination, and I need my fourteen hours…
Anyway. My exams start in two weeks today, with a wonderfully terrifying Medieval Irish Language & Literature exam. On the Wednesday, I’ve got Old Norse Language & Literature, which I’m somehow even more worried about. The Friday brings The History of the Gaelic-Speaking Peoples, and on the following Monday I have England Before The Norman Conquest.
(Or as we generally call them, Old Irish, Old Norse, Gaelic History, and Anglo-Saxon History, because it’s just a lot easier.)
I am lost in despair and fear at the moment, and for that reason, will either be completely MIA from my blog, or I’ll be blogging extensively as a form of procrastination. However, the latter is unlikely due to the additional factor of my hands hating me and making typing a bit of a struggle.
Normal service will resume after the eighth of June. Probably. If I have anything to say by then.
I’ll leave you with this picture of me in a ‘princess dress’ I bought for £10 in Oxfam recently, which is by far the fanciest dress I’ve ever owned. I hope you’re having more fun over the next two weeks than me.
