Return to being a human being

Back to my life out of the revision ashes

So hooray my exams are over and I hope they have gone well. I now just have to forget about them for a couple of months while they mark them and get our transcripts ready. This does mean that I can get back to living my life and being a human being not just a revision robot. This weekend alone I have so many coffee plans, celebrating Australia day and a friend’s birthday which has been dubbed “the alcomoholympics”.  Now I’ve gone off getting drunk simply for the reason that its Friday or whatever, but celebrating the epitome of my year in Australia is something very worthwhile, and as the “natives” (the Australians, not the aboriginals) use this day to sit in a pool and drink crap beer; we should honour their tradition! We might give the pool a miss though, as there is still snow on the ground that might be a little silly. The alcomoholymics should be fun too. We are going in teams in national dress and will compete in all manner of silly alcohol related games. I am probably going representing Antarctica. Now I know a) Antarctica isn’t in the real Olympics and b) penguins definitely don’t compete but it would be much more fun if they did!

            So having spent the best part of a month hidden away in my room trying to get as much knowledge into my brain I now have renewed perspective and motivation to cease the day and make everything count while you can! Because there are moments where you won’t be able to. Having said this I have spent the last hour cleaning my room because it hasn’t been done in a while. I will cease the day afterwards.

            Also there have been so many things that I haven’t been able to deal with properly and I need to catch up on now that I have a little gasp of free time. Friends that I usually am in daily contact with have been ignored, birthdays have been cast aside, calling my parents has been put off, January sales have been cruelly forbidden, nights out have been out of the question (I missed superheroes and villains night!) and possibly most excitingly; a friend got engaged and I wasn’t able to make a huge deal out of it! Well now I can! Hi friends! Happy birthday you! Mum ill call soon honest! Sale shopping has been scheduled for Friday! Nights out are back on the menu! And MAJOR congratulations so one of the loveliest girls ever and what I’m sure is an outstanding gentleman and now her future husband (haven’t met him yet…..) But that is also scary that I am now of an age where getting engaged is acceptable and even being pregnant is a happy thing rather than a life shattering thing. When did that happen?! Must have snuck up on me.

            Anyway I am looking forwards to getting back to living my life and getting back to the hectic mix of uni, extra courses, job applications, exercise, friends, family and anything else that I decide is a good idea at the time! I’ll let you know what happens!
