I thought it was about time that I stuck a new journal on my front page and give a short update of what I've been up to recently.
Well my biggest piece of news is the fact I've officially finished the 'taught' period of my university degree. My last class was on Friday and I now have a month off before my final year exams. Well I say 'month off' but it's going to be a month of hard work. I have my Final year project (FYP) report to write (which acts as my dissertation) along with an essay to write and 4 exams to revise for.
My last day had a nice twist of events though. I assumed I would simply turn up to class for an hour then go home and get to work on a number of things. Instead I ended up in the pub for 4 hours, followed by an attempt to slackline and some other circus-y type things. I then went with friends to watch The Hunger Games in the evening which nicely rounded off the day. As for my thoughts on the film - It wasn't amazing but it was by no means bad. Parts were pretty predictable but it wasn't tedious or boring watching them play out.
I got my exam timetable a little over a week ago and it;s pretty meh. I have 3 exams in the first week (Monday, Tuesday and Saturday) followed by 12 days off then my final exam on the 17th May. I would have liked the first 3 a little more spaced out, but I'm just happy the one I have most to learn for is last with a good sized gap where I can solely focus on it. To celebrate the end of my exams I am also plotting to visit The Harry Potter Studio Tours the weekend after, so I have something awesome to look forward to.
In the nearer future, I'm not going to be around that much this weekend. I'm heading home to see my family for a few days and have the flovable `blunaowl invading over the weekend which should be good fun. On the Saturday I'm off to the Derby devMeet - my first in about 10 months. So if I'm not around to answer notes or update my project, you know why
Just a quick update on the OCtopi front. We are now up to a total of nearly 70 OCtopi avatars and verging on 60 mini-OCtopi project entries. I just love to see this craze go
Points wise I now have over 1000 points donated towards some future event or contest. So at some point I will sit down and start looking at contest or event ideas for the community.
I've recently become quite addicted to the Draw Something app on my phone. If anyone wants to challenge me to a game then my username is Synfull138. I'd appreciate you leaving a message here if your username is different from your dA one though so I have an idea of who I'm playing
Anyways, I think that's about all now. Hope you guys have an awesome week
