Education, Education, Education

Education, Education, Education

Lessons learnt in the shoe department over the past few days:

When putting on bright pink wellies for the first time this term, check that the clothes peg which was holding them together for transportation purposes hasn't fallen inside one of them. Failure to do this can result in a sharp pain and post watershed language.

However much you are addicted to flip flops there comes a point when you have to concede that this year's last minute, oh-my-god-I-need-a-new-pair, are always going to hurt. However many times you attempt to 'wear them in'.

Equally rain + flip flop is neither a good look nor something which would pass health and safety regulations.

The metal bit in your absolute staple cowboy boots that means they need new insoles is not going to go away just by leaving them in the corner of the room. When you put them on the metal bit will still be there. They will still hurt.

Lessons learnt during revision:

However sleepy you feel, putting sugar into your coffee to induce blood sugar and hyperness will still be disgusting when you don't normally put sugar in anything. And don't even drink full sugar soft drinks because they're too sweet.

According to the Oxford English Faculty Library there has been no significant criticism written on Byron since the 1960's. And the content of this criticism is prefaced by introductions which begin along the lines of 'Byron is not a great poet. If he is great, he is so for reasons not primarily poetic'.

Exhaling in disgust and abandoning said volume of criticism with much contempt will make unknowing second years stare at you.

Lessons learnt during Eurovision:

That I don't understand why myself and Nik have not been called upon to present Eurovision Extra on BBC3.

In the eyes of twenty-something men, being blonde, foreign and wearing a low cut top means you are forgiven for a variety of sins.

That there really is no accounting for taste.

That I should follow my hunches and actually place bets, rather than saying that I should, not getting round to doing it and then seeing that I would have won said bet.

Favourite current realisation:

In less than 72 hours I will no longer be an undergraduate. Erm, should I be looking for that McDonald's application form?
