So. I’m back (for good… *cries into a Take That slumber). *Ahem*
Yes, last weekend I arrived back from America (well, technically America -> Dublin -> England BUT DETAILS). We gave a tearful goodbye and tried to desperately stayed awake (I failed and napped) after getting around 3 hours of sleep in 24 hours (NB: this is not fun).
Whilst I was in America, I got my AS Level results: 4 B’s, which isn’t too bad but I wanted higher and so this year I am working on getting my ass down and head working. (Or should that be the other way around?)
That means there’ll be a few changes in my life…
- Less recreational writing. *Sob* This basically means a) no NaNoWriMo this year and b) no more whole-writing-days thanks to coffee. Well, okay, maybe one or two of those in the holiday but THAT’S IT. I really want to do well, and if that means writing takes a back seat, so be it.
- Less reading *sobs again*. Okay so for English (and future university course) and my Extended Project, I’m expected to read a lot – but I can’t be spending three hours a week day curled up with a good novel, a hot chocolate and a drooling cat. It’ll be sad and difficult but I’m aiming for 4-5 books each month. Which still isn’t a terrible sacrifice, but hard when there are so many good books around at the moment.
- Blogging? This may also take a back seat *cries a bath of tears*. On SWW, I’ll try and keep up with 4 posts a week. On my other blog? However many I get down.
- More work. Yeha.
So that’s my life at the moment. Should be interesting, eh? Yeah… something like that.
