Coursework Stress!


Hey there! It’s that time of the year when every lecturer wants their coursework and forgets that you are human and not a robot. -__-  Lol. I just completed my Criminal Law coursework about automatism, insanity and intoxication and I feel so relieved. It was only 1,500 words but it took me a really long time to complete. I’m not blaming anyone though-I have been procrastinating a little. I am loving Criminal Law (more than Contract Law, which I never seem able to get my head around)...It is really interesting and we read about all these shocking and sometimes funny cases. It may interest you to know that insanity is not necessarily a mental illness....you could be classified as insane if you have diabetes for example, and your lack of insulin caused you to act violently...yea...the law is very controversial.

I have also been having some housing issues recently, hence the picture up there. February has been a very stressful month for my really close friends and I and I cannot wait for it to be March. Hopefully, with even more sunshine, everyone will smile a bit more and not feel too burdened by the work load and other problems which may crop up.

I have four more pieces of coursework to complete before the end of March, plus the weekly assignments (oh happy days!) Hehe....but I have got some motivation from a friend of mine who has just graduated with a pharmacy degree (another tough course) and so I am sure I will survive..lol.

Good luck to everyone doing some form of work and with that, I leave you with this song: Concentrate by Xzibit (hehehe ignore the rest of the lyrics of the song and concentrate on the chorus..lool) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=syBr-7WPSo8

Half and Half


Hello people! This month has been one of those ones that I wish could hurry up and pass by; there have been so many stress filled times and disappointments that it is even hard to believe. There have been some good moments though, like getting surprise cupcakes and chocolates from my friends on Valentines Day (aww I am loved! lol) and going ice skating at the Canary Wharf Ice Rink (I am doing quite well-I only fell about five times).

I hardly have time these days though, having to deal with housing issues and coursework. Oh coursework, coursework, coursework... *sigh*. I am not the only one feeling the strain from the workload though-everyone is complaining. I find that a bit comforting because I know I am not alone in this. Lol. I need some serious motivation right now because all I want to do these days is sleep and not bother about school work-and that is not a good sign.

It is one of my close friend’s 21st birthday and we are planning a surprise for him....I probably shouldn’t say too much on here in case he reads it; but it will be this weekend and I am looking forward to it-I do need to release some stress. Releasing stress will however come with its consequences, like not finishing coursework on time; so I am being wise and completing at least 80% of my work today-just to be safe....I will let you know what happens this weekend. J

Talk to you soon!
