Lows of this week: 1. My second psychology exam could have gone better. The research methods section was the most atrocious thing I’ve ever seen. It was all about statistical tests and critical values and tables that no one could read. 2. My Mum is very ill. Some blood vessels burst in her eye and I forced her to go to the doctor to find out her high blood pressure has got worse and she is in imminent risk of blood vessels bursting elsewhere in important places like her brain and her kidneys. 3. On Wednesday night, as if to demonstrate her illness, she set the kitchen on fire. 4. The second section of my English language exam today was on childrens written language and I don’t like that.
Highs of this week: 1. My exams are now officially over and I can begin to complete my long long long list of things I’ve been wanting to do for ages. 2. For the first time in as long as I can remember, right not I don’t feel at all stressed. 3. I’ve just tided out all my notes from the last two years and it was possibly the most therapeutic thing I’ve ever done. My Mum said ‘won’t you need any of them?’ and I replied that if I needed case studies of Walkers crisps adverts and information about child language acquisition at the London College of Fashion I would be disappointed somewhat.
Things that are going to happen in the future: 1. I’m going to redesign my tumblr slightly because I just don’t like it anymore. At lot has changed so it’s about time this changed too. 2. I’m going to go back through my archive and delete all the posts I know longer like - just to refine everything a little and make everything fit together nicely. 3. My posting might be a little sporadic whilst I do this, but I’ll try to keep it up as much as possible.
Today has been atrocious, and I’ve decided for some reason or another, the best way to deal with it is to listen to a mix of Friendly Fires and The Beach Boys in a bid to make myself feel better. It’s sort of working. I suppose things can only get better, but I hate cliches, so for now some happy music will do.
I’m so happy happy happy because the psychology exam went a million times better than I expected! This morning I was having small panic attacks (and I never ever stress over exams, so it was strange) when I was reading through past papers and I couldn’t answer most of the questions. But the actual questions we were given couldn’t of been better. Well, they could always be better, but I’d already written some as mocks and I remembered all the names of the studies and I got it all down in the incredibly short time we had. Good by aggression, gender and bio-rhythms/sleep, you won’t be missed!
Now I just have to handle depression, anomalistic and research methods on Tuesday. I probably won’t get so lucky with the questions next time…
