Well hello there; hope your holidays have been going well but if you are one of the 2.6% in Britain (I do not know the statistics for other countries so sorry) who were still working when everybody else was enjoying their time off then commiserations to you.
I am into my third week off university which may sound amazingly relaxing but it can be a bit annoying. After a long summer break, your brain slowly begins to get used to working again when suddenly you are hit with a three-week holiday which is mostly spent in the confines of your toasty warm home. Although of course, there are exams to revise for, and course works to complete. What I find funny is how course works are frowned upon at GCSE and A-Level yet they are an integral part to your university degree. Students end up feeling quite bewildered when they are suddenly hit with three coursework deadlines six weeks into their degree.
Anyway, back to the holidays. Games, TV shows and movies (and revision.) A teacher at my primary school would always complain about how there is nothing to watch on TV at Christmas time as the same old movies are repeated. However, BBC iPlayer was packed with Christmas specials and there seemed to be one thing in common: weddings! Long awaited relationships were brought to a head and marriages took place such as the one in Not Going Out. A hilarious show full of sarcasm, innuendos and double entendres.
Apart from that, gaming has been the other past time as I used my laptop to go back to my good old childhood days where I could play games for hours without worrying about exams or course works. Of course, I sadly could not go to those lengths as the student in me kept on knocking on my brain: “You still have 1256 words to write!.” Killjoy.
Until Next Time
