"Approach Your Target And Attack. Your Mission Starts Now..."

Am I ready?

Am I fuck.

Saving how the Biarritz/Soustons trip was for another blog entry when I have more time. Right now I'm utterly fucked. I've got to revise for an exam tomorrow, I've got examples papers to finish, I've got lecture notes to copy up, I've got questions to ask James because I have no fucking clue how to do them, I've got shopping to do, I've got Frostii subbing work to do, whine whine bitch bitch

I do feel I have a genuine fucking complaint over the exam though. I mean, we were told about it on like Thursday, and it's tomorrow at 2:30pm. For starters, less than a week's notice is somewhat inadequate to begin with, but it really wasn't helped by the fact I wasn't in the fucking country. I knew we were really likely to have an exam, but I didn't know when it would be, and I didn't have enough fucking space in my luggage to take an entire term's worth of lecture notes just on the off-chance it was one of the first few days back.

To be honest, this exam is just going to be a bit of a waste of time for me. I'm going to do shit, pretty much everyone is anyway, but I'll do especially shit given that I've had no time to prepare. I've got my excuse ready. I was in France all last week, I got back at 3am the day before the exam, and I've had to unpack all my shit and settle in before I can even bother revising. Slops is in just under an hour, so I've got about enough time to write this and unpack the rest of my stuff, then go eat, then hopefully crack on and do at least some revision this evening.

I can't really complain too much. I was going to revise anyway in the holidays and was just too lazy to get around to it. I should really have my examples papers wrapped up by now, and any outstanding work is really down to me. I could have copied up lecture notes before I left, and I could have at least finished all the questions I can do so that all I've got left is ones to ask other people.

I'll do shit in this exam, I'll explain I didn't have enough time to prepare, I'll move on and it won't make any difference in the long run. 

But yeah, back in England now, back to the grind, back to figuring out how the hell I'm going to do all the shit I need to do over the next couple of days. Hopefully I can kill some procrastination and actually get on with stuff this term. I'm tempted to completely schedule my entire day, to the point of scheduling when I sleep, when I socialise, when I watch TV, but that seems a little bit too autistic for my liking.

I'll try and at least write fairly regularly for this. I've got a list of things to write about, and the next few days aside, it shouldn't be too difficult to take half an hour out of my day to write stuff. Still looking for creative suggestions and input on a banner, and also open to people writing guest posts if they want to, especially if I don't have time to write stuff myself and they're ranty sorts of posts.
