Student Motivation: The overall lack of.

11 Apr

In all honesty I’m not the best example of this because I actually do things with my time I volunteer with cubs, I’m on the committee of a society, I get reasonable grades… oh god it’s all a lie.

I had to use my camping cutlery and plates because I just don’t care about washing up. I’ve never done more than 200 words of an assignment earlier than the day before it was in. I did one at 9 am for a midday deadline. Seriously how do people get themselves out of bed in the morning without a lecture to go to. Even then Thursday 9ams tend to get neglected. I do 8 hours of lectures a week as a film student and my god can I not be bothered. 

Hi there did you know that digital journalism blah blah blah blahblah…… IT’S 11 AM OKAY NO ONE CARES I SHOULD BE ASLEEP.

University, the stressful world of the privileged 20 year old.

9 Feb

Real world adult business wise, university isn’t exactly the hardest thing ever. However the large maority of students haven’t been real world adults, myself included. 

So in my glorious middle class white – girl idioisms I’ve started a second blog, so you can all read the nonsense that pours out of my head. I want to focus this blog specifically on the things I write, read, watch and create. So stand by here for more of that but if you’re feeling nosy…

Hello, it’s december…

22 Dec

Hi…

So life has been hectic. Very Hectic. Extremely Hectic.

The thing is, I kind of love it. Being busy all of the time. It gives me a purpose to crawl out of bed in the, lets not lie here, middle of the day.

So here’s a quick list of what I’ve been up to (and some retrospective advice):

1. Went to Alton Towers for the first time. Go on The Smiler. It’s brilliant.

2. I rejoined scouting. Hence the Alton Towers. It is so much fun. Network isn’t just drinking despite the stereotype.

3. I have a lot more work to do. It’s second year I shouldn’t be surprised really.

4. Some of that work involved film making. That culminated in a group piece that I directed and am actually proud of.

5. GTAV exists. Don’t judge me on my video game choice.

6. Life in general oh my god I want a lie in.

7. Christmas. That is all.

And it’s october.

22 Oct

So I dissapeared for a month… oh. It would appear that no matter what freshers ends up being stressful. Oh and GTAV.And Alton Towers.

Things in general.

Getting old and sharing a birthday with google.

26 Sep

ImageExcuse me while I go sick up the old. At quarter to five in the morning on the 27th of September 2013 I will be twenty. It is currently six minutes past midnight on the 27th of September. No longer a teenager. 

Ew. Continue reading

The Dangers of Google and Why I’m Glad to Not be the One in Ten.

18 Sep

Well technically I’m a four in five, but never in my life have I been so happy to fall into a statistic. Just to be clear I love Google. I’m a student for God’s sake. Passing grades happen to go hand in hand with Google scholar. (I also share a birthday with it and always get a fun logo that day.)  Continue reading

Here I stand

12 Sep

ImageFilm and television studies at Aberystwyth, the best decision I have ever made. Looking back, it’s one of the first decision’s I’ve made that were truly my own. Not that of those around me, mine. 

Yes I liked science. Yes biology would have been more respected academically. Did I want to do that? No.

Yes  I could have been a nurse. Yes it would have gotten me a job more easily. Was that my idea? Certainly not. Mother likes to meddle in her child’s lives. 

Yes my grades influenced my choices. Yes I could have worked harder and done something else. Would I be happy? Not at all.

Yes I could have gone to different uni. Yes even one that is “better” than where I am. Does that make me a fool? Maybe. I’m not sure that’s important though. 

There are so many little things that have lead me here. Begging my second year I see that now. Wanting to impress a guy, wanting to ignore others, most of all wanting to be me. Wanting to create, wanting to question, wanting to live my life. 

So here I stand, looking backward. No regrets. Content. 

To all the kids applying this year, make your decision. Not anyone else’s. 

This for this weeks weekly writing challenge.
