aww, you'll be fine helen! i know everyone says that but you can only keep at it, and look forwards to the moment you finish your last exam!

and yes, truly EXCELLENT song. you can see i couldnt keep the Dylan [/obessed] out of my sig! my mum emailed a few lines from it to me recently. the bit in my sig i chose obviously for its architectural references, but its just incredibly uplifting, and obviously cos its bob, very well written.

Forever Young, Bob Dylan (dedicated to everyone who's stressing right now)

May God bless and keep you always,
May your wishes all come true,
May you always do for others
And let others do for you.
May you build a ladder to the stars
And climb on every rung,
May you stay forever young,
Forever young, forever young,
May you stay forever young.

May you grow up to be righteous,
May you grow up to be true,
May you always know the truth
And see the lights surrounding you.
May you always be courageous,
Stand upright and be strong,
May you stay forever young,
Forever young, forever young,
May you stay forever young.

May your hands always be busy,
May your feet always be swift,
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift.
May your heart always be joyful,
May your song always be sung,
May you stay forever young,
Forever young, forever young,
May you stay forever young.

I was last person to leave the library last night. I haven't done that since lent term of last year. I need to find more time, or make my time more productive. But I already feel really burnt out from the mental effort of revision!

I've pretty much wasted two days. No work was really done.

And with the essay in tomorrow, what am I going to do this evening? Why, go to teh cinema and see "The Da Vinci Code", of course, as opposed to actually doing some work... :rolleyes:

Then again, I WILL do an hour when I get back. I WILL.

Anti moan: Have an outing tomorrow morning at 7; FINALLY, the chance to cox an eight. Am bith aprehensive and looking forwards to it... then again, having been in the Cam after my kayaking adventures on Monday I no longer fear it or its many and varied diseases. If only I ahd some trousers I could wear tomorrow- jeans are out, they get too wet and heavy and kill you by drowing if you end up in teh drink, so it looks like it MIGHT have to be shorts... :eek:

OK.

I have an essay due in at 5pm. I was up at 6. I was at the boathouse by seven. I coxed the eight quite well (no major crashes, and the one incident that occurred wasn't my fault...) and was then about to leave at about 9.

Not so! The women's third boat was short of a crew member. Ah.

On the plus side, I didn't exactly volunteer; I should, however, learn to say "no"!

So haveing had two hours of pain and problems and misery- first time rowing for me ina n eight, and what a baptism of fire that was!- I now havew several bloody and popped boatie blisters and am knackered. Sod.

Red Bull has been purchased, but it can't make up for both lack of sleep and lack of time... and I had promised to put 100% into this essay too. Crud.

[Edit: I caught 20 or so crabs in this outing- do I win a prize?]

[Edit Edit: My lovely hat! I put it and a cox box down by the side of teh river, and when I turned around a couple of minutes later having put the boat away they were both gone! :eek:

Cox boxes are expensive, and don't float; my hat does. I Think it may well be lost forever... I wonder if I can claim a new one, seeing as its insured (seriously!) against loss!

Erm...

Blend them in a belnder into a nice, nutritious, healthy drink?

Other than that...

Graphs! If you're looking at something like GDP or whatever as it changes over time, try plotting it as a graph. If like me you've a bit of a visual memory you'll be able to recall it much better.

Flashcards work in a similar way, especially for things like teh state of the economy at a certain date.

Hope that helps!

James -
1. Well done with the coxing/rowing. You truly have proved yourself masochistic! :p:
2. I hope you made it with the essay!
3. OH! your lovely hat! i am in deep mourning for its loss. (you INSURED it?? lol)

I have just handed in my 2nd year portfolio! wooooooooooo am in such a state of happiness that i cannot contemplate the fact that HARDCORE revision begins at 7 am tomorrow. so i am just going to ignore that fact and go see the Da Vinci Code with archi mates.
wooo

Oh, goody, I can moan at you when you get back about how historically inaccurate it is.

I counted 6 errors in one 30 second sequence; do I win a medal?

Oh, and the essay was done. Just.

Oh oh, and the hat is automatically insured against theft and loss! :p: You get what you pay for...

Oh oh oh, its my night off having handed in the essay and, more than likely, no-one will want to go out t'pub and do anything as usual.

Good news! The Hat and the CoxBox have been found; some random Pembrokeians picked both up thinking they were theirs.

Huzzah!

In other news: had a supervision this morning when i was basically told to "stop coasting and settling for second best", basicaly a mixture of a *******ing and a pep talk... I basically have to put 110% in this week... at least I like the topic.

didnt get to the UL yesterday. had a 2 hour supervision, after which my friend and i NEEDED to go to mcDonalds. then i felt too tired to go to the UL, and it would only have been open for another 2 hours anyway.

but i am leaving. for the UL. NOW

EDIT:
have just got back from having spent the day in the UL. actually really enjoyed it, maybe the novelty wears off after a while, but meh. i just love the light in the reading room.
