Well, look who’s still alive! It’s me! How exciting. Lots of stuff has been happening in the past goodness knows how long since I last made a post. (4 months? Dang…)
It’s getting towards exams, and I’ve been procrastinating my life away as always. I finalised my uni choices last week, so at least I know what I’m aiming for. Definitely need an A in English- A* if I can manage it. Doubtful at this stage, but I can always dream. I need at least ABB overall, which I feel is manageable… If I start working super hard, super quickly.
To tell you how that’s going, I have two essays and 3 essay plans due tomorrow, none of which are complete. Two are started. This procrastination is getting completely our of hand, but I have zero motivation to do anything right now. My most used phrase of the moment is “I have become thoroughly disenfranchised with the human experience and want to take a nap.” Something I want to be doing right now, to be honest. I have so much work to do, and I’m worried about getting rubbish grades, but I just can’t be bothered doing any work. What is with that?
In other news, I’ve completed Stark Trek, and have started posting it on Archive of Our Own (AO3) too. I’ve decided to go through and change some chapters to either improve or rework them. Some reviews have pointed out serious characterisation issues
(Mary Sue alert!) with my OC, so there’s plenty to do. That may result in a delay do the sequel, but I can work all that out after June and the exams. (I’m so looking forward to those)
Most of the shows I watch are on TV at the moment, including my beloved Game of Thrones. Waiting to watch the episodes has been quite the excersise in self restraint; a couple if my friends saw them early when they were leaked online. Naughty children. I’ve been catching up on Elementary too, and will be getting back on the Five-0 bandwagon soon also. I thoroughly enjoyed the BBC Poldark show, what with it being based in Cornwall and everything. I highly recommend it. Although, having so many outlets for distracting myself is never a good thing…
Last Saturday was spent watching Age of Ultron, which was an awesome film. There are a couple of issues with characterisation, especially relating to Black Widow. There’s been a lot of debate on Tumblr regarding her being reduced to a damsel in distress love interest, most of which I agree with. And she was written so well in Winter Soldier… come on, Marvel.
Another time Easter I have recently invested in is Minecraft. I’ve wanted to get it for ages, and spent most of the Easter holidays building an unnecessarily large castle. Well, it’s probably not as huge as it could be, but I don’t want to make it any bigger.
With only half an hour until Thrones, and near to no progress made on my schoolwork over the past 3 days, I think now would be a good time to sign off. Is anyone else totally looking forward to any exams?
