:eek: Deidre! *lol* in year 10 my geog teacher broke her glasses and she had to wear Deidre-style glasses for a month or so; when we walked into the lesson we would just crack up! I still call her it occasionally (not to her face!) . But she's lovely <3

Intensive reading?...

I did Literature last year and I only read 1 book and a few paragraphs. Most of my essays come from class notes and summaries.

Is that what you're advising me to do?

That woman (Deidre not your teacher ) has a lot to answer for!

Hmmm, I haven't noticed any deterioration yet; I'm already mildly short-sighted, I wear glasses/contacts and so far seem to have survived without a change. We'll see if that continues though.

Me too, I can already hardly see past my nose without my contacts in - 3 years of English Lit may just finish my poor eyes off!

I already have bad eye sight and have to wear glasses for reading the board and things. My eyes end up hurting if I spend too long on the computer or reading a book with small text. God knows how I'll survice doing an English degree!

They should rest their eyes every 30 mins or so, then their eyes won't be bad and stuff.

You're doing English Lit as well! Yay, where are you hoping to study this Sept assuming you're not taking a gap year?

Ah, I'm short sighted anyway.


I'll invest in a good lamp before uni then.
