School: working hard as usual, or most of the time trying my hardest to work hard but mostly getting side tracked with online games and videos of Glee routines on youtube. We submit out project choices tomorrow, a very nerve wrecking time for all. I have no idea if anyone else is going for my first choice, two of my flatmates are going for the partner project to mine and I would love to work with either of them (and they have cars which will make my life of so much easier) but I haven’t heard anything about people wanting to do mine. Also weighing up the pros and cons of future career choices or PhD subjects in relation to these choices adds a bit more strength to the panic.

Been striving to get some work done on my fisheries essay but it just won’t come, I will try my damnedest this weekend, but then again working this hard to start an essay more than two weeks before it’s due is a pretty good development. Of course haven’t done jack all for the EIA.

York: Had a really nice weekend in York with C and A. A’s job is going wonderfully and I’m really looking forward to going to visit her at some point. The panto was wonderful though I will admit I didn’t find it as funny as previous years, I think I preferred the old lead boy. Spent too much money but had a lovely time, especially as I won’t be seeing my friends for some time now.

Knitting: Haven’t really done much, the whole school thing always makes it so I don’t do much. I’m still working on the Selbu Modern with Owls languishing in my knitting bag waiting for me to be done with the fingering weight hat. I will strive to finish the Selbu soon. I did manage to take pictures of the mystery socks and to post about both them and my mother christmas shawl so that’s a good thing. Hopefully I will be done soon and have more to talk about. No spinning has been done since November, should do a little of that as well, I probably only have about a week’s worth before plying.

Running: I ran on Jan 1st because it was nice and warm and lovely. Unfortunately the rest of that week was cold and horrible and then I got back to Wales and was jet laggy and depressed. I finally forced myself to go on Tuesday and went for another tonight. When I force myself to go it’s great and I’ve can run 5 minutes straight now with no problems but it does take a bit of effort to force myself to go, I almost didn’t tonight. I’m hoping to keep it up, I think I’m going to move on to week 5 in my next run.

Archery: I sheared the tip off my pressure button before Christmas for the second time so I had to purchase a new one. Last night I moved my nocking point down as it was looking out of alignment with my rest and I’m also changing my draw slightly so with all that my shooting has been a little erratic. Though that said, the changes to my technique my coach is making is actually working and I shot a lot better last night than I had been shooting before Christmas. It doesn’t look like we’ll be able to get together a team for BUTC which sucks as I would really like to go but oh well, that’s life and the problem of going to a club that only has three recurves. At least there will be BUCS.
