This weekend has mostly involved a mixture of this:
I’ve not been feeling fantastic so in between working and eating I’ve been snuggled up in bed reading. I don’t really know what’s wrong with me, I figure it’s mostly the stress but whatever is causing it, can my headaches and feelings of nausea vanish now please? The flapjack pictured above is a Bakewell tart flapjack and is the ultimate treat for a poorly head!
I did venture out of my room at some point this weekend, today I went to do some laundry (I clearly have a very exciting life) and yesterday I took some time off to meet a friend at the cafe. It was good to get out of the block that makes up my rather small world right now. I don’t know about where you are but here it’s actually been quite pleasant outside, the sun shines into my room every morning and it’s not too chilly which makes a change.
We actually sat outside for a couple of hours and I had the most delicious fruit muffin. I love bottle green sparkling elderflower, it’s just lightly sparkling and has a lovely subtle elderflower flavour. I’d say this drink and muffin were the highlight of my weekend.
This week I have my first exam (ahh!) so I’ve been preparing lots for that. It’s starts on Wednesday when I go to watch a clip of a theatre production which will be one of the nine plays we’ve studied in Drama this year, then I come back and I have till 10am Friday morning to write 2500 words… Not exactly my idea of fun. I will definitely be feeling less stress this time next week, even if I still have three more exams after that. This is the one I’m most stressed about. It’s hardly ideal for someone like me who really struggles to sit at a desk for more than a couple of hours at a time!
I may go home next Sunday, I’m homesick and I want my real bedroom back. I haven’t decided yet because it would be tough to carry all of the books and notes needed for my revision. We shall see…
Just as a warning I may be rather absent for the next couple of weeks and when I’m around I might be a tad grumpy. I loathe exams probably somewhat more than the average person as for me they are two hours of hell in which I feel shattered, am in gradually mounting amounts of pain and obviously, like everyone else, feel incredibly stressed. I’ll get there though, bring on the summer!
