I have had my first two exams, just one left next Tuesday and my time at university has come to an end! My first exam was awful. The questions were awful and I didn’t know how to answer any of them, even though I spent more time revising that topic than anything else! *grumble* The exam the following day was much better though. I had to complete two questions out of four and I could have done a really good job on all of them! I really enjoyed that topic though, it was about the social psychological issues relating to sexual health of young people. I love a good debate and that topic is full of them. One exam question was to suggest new policies, so I was happy to make up wacky policies for awhile! :)
I can’t believe uni is over. What’s scary is I wanted this day to come for so long, now I’m annoyed about it because I need to find a job. Unfortunately I didn’t get postgraduate funding so I won’t be staying on to do a PhD, which is a little upsetting. I wasn’t too upset because I knew it was a long shot in the current economic climate, but I still hoped I’d be able to stay on and do research as I really enjoy it. Oh well! I’m trying to keep a focus on finishing my exams first, then worry about ‘the future’.
In more fun news, as a reward to myself so being super awesome during one of my exams and finishing uni I decided to buy myself something. For ages I’ve wanted a ukulele and a stylophone, so I bought myself them! Whisking it’s way to me is a gorgeous, shiny red ukulele! Strange things to buy? Yep. Completely awesome things to buy? Definitely! :)
Also, I’m going to see Art Brut again next week! :P I made a big deal about it last time, so I’ll try contain my excitement this time :) Current favourite song from the new album is Bad Comedian which sports the line, ’He dresses like he came free with the NME! How can you bear to hold his hand? I bet he signs his name in Comic Sans!’ <3 Aww, Comic Sans, “the most controversial font of our time”. Soo friendly! <3
Anyhoo, to pictures of my lovely long nails which I am mourning the loss of. I write faster with short nails so I cut them for my exams. I liked them the length and shape they were, but alas they had to go. I picked up this polish in Asda when I went to visit my family last month. It really stood out from the others on the huge stand of super cheap, but very nice polishes because is has a lovely blue/purple duochrome in it. Of course it is a nightmare to photograph, but I manged to get one, out of focus but accurate picture of it.
The polish was quite fast drying, but it was very sheer. I definitely needed 3-4 coats to get this finish, but it’s a gorgeous colour so it was worth it. I will definitely pick up more of these polishes if I see a colour that I like, for £1.50 you can’t go wrong!
Here is my out of focus attempt to capture that duochrome. My silly phone camera was obsessed with focusing on the background of everything that day. You can see the base of my nails are more purple? That’s what the polish looks like in real life, but I couldn’t capture it in a normal shot.
I gave myself the day off today from revision. Instead of resting or doing something fun I cleaned the windows, I was really bored not revising. I’m not right sometimes. When my instruments arrive I’ll be able to play with those instead! Do any of you lovely people play instruments? Or want to play one?
I hope everyones exams are going well and everyone is having a lovely week! :) xxxx
