The Leeds side streets that you slip down

Its cold. So very cold. Its also icy. Very very icy. Walking home when drunk is very difficult.

Boo! Bad weather!

The text is staying as it is. It's not small, it's fun size.

I am so bored. So very very bored. If someone wanted to drive me mad all they would have to do is give me infinite leisure time. I'd be mad within a week.

Tomorrow I'm going to go to an optional lecture for my course, which should hopefully bore me enough to appreciate the boredom I'm currently enduring.

I can't wait to finish uni. I'm so fed up of books. I'm fed up of learning information that is hardly useful and seems to amount to other peoples opinions most of the time. I'm tired of listening to wankers talk like they're Lenin himself on Marxism when they know fuck all. I'm tired of Roland Barthes. I'm tired of listening to dreadlocked girls and mulleted blokes witter on about 'narrative voice' in seminars. I'm tired of smugness. I'm tired of namedropping authors. I'm tired of gap years in fucking Cambodia. I'm tired of post-modern irony (whatever the fuck that is). I'm tired of daytime TV. I'm tired of not getting up before one for the last week. I'm tired of snakebite and black. I'm tired of people wearing scarves in clubs. I'm tired of bad dancing. I'm tired of The Guardian. I'm tired of hedgemony. i'm tired of Hienz soup. I'm tired of blagger jeans. i'm fucking tired of suit jackets.

I think i'm just tired of students...

If someone gave me the option of either earning my degree the traditional way this semester or by eating all twenty or so books on my course, I'd happily have half of 'Happy Days' by Samuel Beckett stuffed into my mouth before you'd finished this sentence.

My poor brain

Anyone who is familiar with this blog will know that this is my first entry for a very long time. This is due to the fact that I have just experienced some of the most mentally stressing and mind numbingly boring weeks of my life, my third year examinations, and thus simply had nothing to write and no inclination to inflict the boredom I was suffering on others.

The exams themselves went fine. I'm stuck in the no-man's land of getting a 2:1 no matter how hard I work, and so I have no desire to excert myself more than the minimum, which is what I did. I left both exams 45 minutes early after scribbling all that I could be arsed to. After reading about a subject for a week it's incredibly tedious to have to write a for three hours on it, and to be honest I'm sick to death of English.

Saying that this term should be better. I only have one exam and am studying contemporary literature, which should be reasonably stress free. I also appear to have mondays, wednesdays and fridays off, which is frankly ridiculous. Hopefully that will give me time to get a band started and find a job. Realistically I think it means I'll be drunk on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, which luckily happens to be some of the best nights out in Leeds.
