Fun times

I feel really bad because I've totalled ignored LJ recently. I've been incredibly busy; everything's go go go all the time. It's great though, I'm enjoying myself so much, although there was a brief hiccup during when I was ill that I just wanted to step back from it all and go back home for a bit. It's ridiculous when I think about it now because I know don't want to be anywhere other than Sheffield. :D

This week, I've been doing something every evening.
Monday: Spanish social at Vodka Revolution and Embrace. Was all right but I prefer to chill out with friends than do the whole 'srs clubbing scene.'
Tuesday: Went to see The Pitmen Painters at the Lyceum with some friends, for part of our English Lit course. So much more entertaining than I expected it to be; it was brilliant. That, and the fact I got to sit really close to someone I quite like right now. ;) Yeah, I'm pathetic.
Wednesday: Attempted to get on Sheffield's team for University Challenge. LOL. I knew nothing would come of it but it was so much fun. I got 13/50 on the Arts and Literature round, which was, I hasten to point out, two points better than the third year sitting next to me! Still lolworthy though. Maybe I'll know more next year.
Thursday: 5th November - a few of us went to see the Fireworks at Don Valley Stadium. They were lovely but could have gone on longer, I though. Watched my friends go on the fairground rides, which was amusing, because Matt was screaming like a girl. XD
Friday: Played badminton with a group of my friends. I'm going again next week as well, but I need to buy my own racket. God my muscles ache now though.

It's been more socialising than work this week, but I feel okay about it because last weekend I was working solidly to submit a book review on George Rudé's The French Revolution. Got my mark back for my first ever English assignment and I received 68, which is a high 2.1, so I was pleased with that.

I know I need to catch up with all of you - I'm such a bad LJ friend. But please please feel free to comment here and let me know what you've been up to; I'd love to hear from you. :)

Thank you! :D

He's someone on my course, and he lives on my corridor. We're good friends but I'm not sure if he likes me. Ah well, we'll just have to see how things go!

I feel bad, too, as I've only had time for LJ in spurts. ;-; But glad to know you're doing well! And OMG, University Challenge! You should definitely try again next year, that would be fun stuff. And you'd have something in common with Stephen Fry. XD

Nice job on your mark! :D
