Time to knuckle down

Hello again everyone, I hope you are well. The weeks leading up to Christmas are going to be

particularly stressful with the deadlines I have remaining. Even when I have submitted all my work, I will still have 3 exams to prepare for in January, so there won’t be much time to relax over the winter vacation. Due to all the work I have to do, I may have to just cancel Christmas! For someone who isn’t a huge fan of it really isn’t all that bad, it was more a break that I was looking forward to.

In light of all the work I have been doing, I have realised that I spend nearly all of my time at the University in some way. I’m either in the library working on my assignments, working, or in classes. I may as well move into the University, and they would never get rid of me! Although the fact I’ve been here for 4 years shows that the University of Greenwich can’t get rid of me; I may even stay to do my PhD… eventually! For the time being, I think I need to focus on getting my master’s, and then looking into a career.

The New Year should bring about some relief to my bank balance. After December, I would have paid off my tuition, and will no longer have to save money from my pay each month. This means that in January when I get paid, all the money that is left will be mine! (Well, after I’ve paid all my bills etc).

Even though I am not a huge fan of Christmas, I am a fan of the food and drink that comes with Christmas. The other day I had one of the Christmas sandwiches from EAT. and it was probably the nicest sandwich I have ever had! It certainly puts the sandwiches at M&S to shame, and that is really saying something.

I hope you are all working hard and are getting through your assignments, the best of luck, and until next time everyone!
