Week 6 has been a mixed bag - I'm ready for a break that's not coming and whilst feeling very detached from everything, in terms of uni work and my assignments I'm actually doing quite well.
On Monday I didn't have any of my lectures or seminars but instead two tutorials - or I was meant to have two, but the first one my lecturer ran over so bad that myself and the girl who was meant to be after me left because it was a joke and I had other stuff to do.
My photography tutorial was much more useful, but I was very stressed about my Digital Magazine case study assignment because my lecturer, although I'm reluctant to call her that, was absolutely useless - I was so on top of it, I had my first draft finished a week in advance, she wouldn't answer my emails, I had a complete meltdown on Monday and she was absolutely useless. Even thinking about this to write it now is making me very angry. So she did not help me in the lead up to this deadline.
On Tuesday I had an FMP lecture in the morning, an FMP meeting after that, I probably had another meeting (writing this half a week late so the details are a bit fuzzy), I worked on trying to fix my case study to hand in the next day, then there was a seminar about radio and presenting and another law refresher which literally ran until the last minute and I wasn't very happy about it.
Then I went home and lots of people came to my house for a Halloween party. It was mental and brilliant.
And I'm so grateful to have not had a news day the next day. I was in uni pretty early finishing off my case study and submitting that and then I spent most of the afternoon preparing for the first Sonar Media Showcase event, which took longer than I thought. And once that was done I went to see my dad because he was visiting which was nice.
Thursday I spent the whole day with my dad - I had some time in the afternoon where I finally found a package idea for my second package hand in which was useful because it was less than a week till hand in at that point.
Friday morning lecture was somewhat political and I'm really struggling with concentrating when I have literally zero interest at the moment - actually struggling to concentrate on anything at all, I always feel like I haven't woken up - but I'm pretty sure I got some other work done, I can't really remember.
I know I didn't do too much in the Artisan when I met up with the girls and then seminar was actually a pretty useful discussion and I felt like I knew where I'm going with my essay after chatting to my lecturer.
I then went to another cafe to wait for an interview for my package and I got lots done before my interview which was lovely, the interview went really well, and then I went back to uni for drama rehearsals which were less fun if I'm honest because stomach cramps were not on my side.
Saturday I had work and a nap and had Chinese for dinner and went to watch the fireworks with my gorgeous boy, it was lovely.
Sunday was a very relaxed day and actually our two year anniversary! So we went out for dinner but generally a very lazy day and I needed it.
And here we are nearly at the end of another week. I feel like I've been behind on everything ever since I went back to uni. Mentally, I'm just not keeping up at all.
