    In other news, this track is fantastic! Snow Patrol have outdone themselves. I wasn't expecting much, so am impressed :yep:
    Hmm, not a huge Snow Patrol fan, but that's pretty good.

    I had a bit of a panic. The tickets don't have the times printed on them. Fortunately I managed to manipulate the website into telling me what was going on.
    Quarter to one tomorrow.

    Presents. Laptop. Books. Clothes.
    *sigh*

    Yeh I'm not a huge fan either, but this whole album is less annoying than usual and very good in some places, so yay.

    Before I went to Cambridge I needed 8 hours sleep a night just to function. Now I just can't sleep And I have minimal caffeine intake And it's 4am, I need to be up in 4 hours and I'm awake enough to be bouncing off the walls.

    I've been staying up later in the holidays than I have in Cambridge, but only because of talking on MSN. I end up waking up very late though. I think I did get by on less sleep in cambridge.

    Well, I am talking on MSN/Skype now and have been since 12ish. So I should really get off and go to sleep :p:

    Oh yes As is burgeoning. It's got such a lovely round sound... buuuurgeoning.

    Hmph, I've started waxing lyrical about words. Now is time for sleep I feel :p: (Try not to spam too much over the next couple of days please, I'm going away and will therefore have to catch up when I get back )

    I hate burgeoning. Kind of like turgid. It sounds uncomfortably and grotesquely full.

    I'm reading Imagined Communities by Anderson. It's SO interesting!!! To be perfectly honest I thought classical sociology was one of the worst things I ever did, I'm glad it's totally different this term.

    Excellent
    Contemporary Sociology.. everything on my course basically - is absolutely wonderful :love:


    I wasn't able to read through Imagined Communities properly I only had time for a few chapters - but yeh it was fantastic
    Look up Castells and the Network Society/Information Age too.


    Ugh.. I always amaze myself that I'm willing to cart such a ridiculous amount of stuff on a train. I find it easier to open a bag and just shove everything I usually use into it. Somehow this always ends up being a massive backback on my back and another two smaller bags in my hands :>.<:

    How many topics did you do for sociology? I was thinking of just avoiding Marx, Durkheim, Weber completely :yep: (is this wise?)

    Everything this term looks fantastic, I'm particularly looking forward to the division of labour and political scandal.

    I think four topics is fine for Sociology. The paper is 12 questions and you can choose any three. Revising only three would be stupid. I told you what happened to us, right? I went in convinced I'd do Marx, Durkheim and Nationalism, and the Marx was utterly impossible - I was very lucky with the Weber question. So five is ideal, but four is probably fine. I chose the Classics because I found them easier. I didn't like Weber, but liked Marx (after Soc Anth put him into perspective) and Durkheim. So yeh if you're happier with the Lent stuff, by all means stick to it!

    Does this mean you feel better about SPS as a whole, or do you still wish you were doing Arch and Anth?
