January catch up

Who's a terrible blogger? Me!

Who's a terrible uni student? Me!

Who's loving life, and relishing in being lazy? Me!

I have done next to nothing for the whole of 2015, but given that we're only twenty four days in, I don't feel too bad. We got our first assignments back, which we did in November, and oh my god, as a group we did so badly. There's about 60 people on my course - not a lot of people do English language, apparently - and nobody got a first. Three people got a 2.1. Some of us got 2.2s (something I never ever ever wanted), and a lot of people got between 40% and 50%. Some people even failed. The lowest mark was 34, while the highest was 64. If you ask me, that's pretty bad. I got 55 which I was like, super unhappy with at first, but that was still higher than all of my friends. All but two people I've spoken to got a lower mark than me which is insane.

Is it the teaching? Or the course content? Or maybe we were just so wildly unprepared for this essay, and it's really shown. I know I didn't have a bloody clue what I was writing! I hope it only goes up from here because if I get less than a 2.2, I'll cry. I'm not stupid. I was a consistent A/A* student at A level in Eng lang, so why am I slogging my guts out to just get a middling 2.2 at uni? It sucks.

On le bright side, I'm going to see Jessie Ware in Manchester tomorrow which I'm so pumped for! It will be my first time in Manchester, and I'm going with my best uni gal pal so we're going to have a fabulous time! Tonight, I'm heading out for dinner with one of my housemates, but before that, I have a date with my burnout friends and Cards Against Humanity.

I've had lots of great nights out - and in - these couple of weeks since being back after Christmas, and putting photos on here is my way of being able to look back at this and think, ahh I've had a really great few months at uni.

I hope you're all feeling happy and loving life, and having lots of fun. I need to start preparing for an assessment now so wish me luck, and I hope you all have a fab weekend!
