Wednesday, March 26Forgot to mention in the last post that I recently saw Scarface for the first time. It's an amazing film, and I'm glad I saw it now, when I'm old enough to understand it...
What have I been up to recently? Well, I'm knackered today because I was up until the wee small hours last night working on a piece of coursework for my degree. Admittedly, I should have done this coursework ages ago, but at least I've finished it now and it's out of the way. Actually, it has shown me just how much of a skinflint I've become in my time as a student. I know it's a stereotype, but it's oh-so-true! I'm going home on Saturday, and have very little funds available to last me until then, especially considering I'm going out drinking for the next 3 nights... Anyway, the reason I sat up so late to finish the essay is that I was already going in to uni today for a couple of tutorials, paying £5.30 for the privelige of using the Tube, so I could hand in the essay whilst at the Strand campus, rather than finishing it this afternoon and paying again to travel in tomorrow. Damn I'm a cheapskate, but I can now afford to get drunk tonight, which makes me very, very happy.
Also, once I'd finished the essay (around 3am), I played on GTA 3 for a bit before collapsing into bed. Seeing as I had to be up again at 7.15, I was not best pleased to get a phone call from a couple of drunken mates at 5am... For some reason, we were chatting for about half an hour about god-knows-what, so I only got 2 hours sleep last night. Thankfully, I've now got absolutely nothing to get up for both tomorrow and Friday... Which is nice.
