Euro 2008 may be in full swing (those lucky Austro-Swiss) but this is not a football report (which would be rather out of character), it is however my overall grade for my first year of university! I am most definitely here, and while there are most certainly things I need to work on for next year (as my highest paper is not part of next year’s examination), mainly involving essays and style (which any idiot can learn, says Jim), I think I have well and truly succeeded.

French Society site now live

26 June 2008

To cut a long story short, I am French Soc secretary for 2008-9. This is much fun as I have so far minuted lots of meetings, snooped on previous execs, read and rewritten our constitution (which needs running past most of the exec still and then SocsFed) and created a snazzy website which takes content from text files and adds some prettiness before serving it up on the web. Well, now that snazziness has hit the real interweb, and can be seen in all its glory at http://www.sunion.warwick.ac.uk/socs/su191

Vom

19 June 2008

I am sick. I am consequently feeling sorry for myself. I would argue that this was understandable as I woke up and then chucked up, which is not on the Ririan Project’s list of ways to kick start your day (however turkey is on the list and I can’t see myself eating that when I wake up).I’ve had to flake on the French day and on Impact training tomorrow, while it might have been a first aid course, it may well not be a good idea going full of illness – yeuch! I have decided I’m going to be well by Saturday night so I can go out, but if all fails then I lose 2 weeks wages because I’m set to work Sunday and Monday and miss out on Top B fun, and my name’s on the guestlist too! My moment of fame and I get ill…boo!

50% exam free

7 June 2008

Three down and three to go, what excitement! I may possibly have just fallen off my chair at the excitement if it wasn’t that it doesn’t have wheels and is particularly unwieldy… I’m supposed to be celebrating and I have been told off for dusting my laptop because that is not fun enough. I also took down all the posters I had put up for grammar and Writers, Media & Society, aren’t they an exciting lot, I think if you click the picture to the left it should load a bigger picture, bearing in mind that there are more you can’t see! Right onto FrIm and German grammar – fun times!

London’s burning!

2 June 2008

Actually I’m a good seventy miles north of London, but still Chloë did manage to set light to bacon, which isn’t as impressive as one of the chefs at work who set fire to an omelette, or so they say. Allie and I dutifully panicked and went running off. I had security hang up on me, but Allie found the tutor who came to have a look, by which time the fire was out and Kav was armed with a fire blanket we didn’t know we had. What is impressive is that the fire alarm didn’t go off, take that Kitchen 7! In other news, written exams T-3d-12h-8m-0s which is scary (and not wholly accurate, but near enough!!)…eep!
