Waste not, want more

No variations on a theme.

A Brief Hiatus

OK, the time has come to admit temporary defeat. Exams are next week and very little preparation has been done (by me, that is). I am reinforcing my tired old procrastinating student pity me campaign: “Oh, I have exams, isn’t it terrible? I would like back pats for failing to do my work all semester and cramming information into my brain while dealing with the pain of sitting in a chair 12 hours a day…”

I consider this official notice that I do not expect to blog for approximately 10 days. I’m sure you’ll make it through but I’m sad about it. Do not be alarmed, I read the odd blog while I eat. I may comment, too. Don’t judge 🙂

I shall return without dirty study band in short order, for better or worse!

If I go from looking like this...

...to this, I'll let you know.

  1. Yes, yes, a hiatus is in order. And I love the photos. Good luck with exams, my friend. Study hard and see you soon, I hope.

    • Thanks 😀 I suspect you will.

  2. Ooooo, just think about your triumphant return!

    But might I offer an alternative suggestion? Not only blog while you should be studying, but “live blog” your exams. Even if you fail, you’re bound to be interviewed on Q for your very 2011 behaviour.

    • Triumphant return – well, that’s quite hopeful! But hope is good. Q might be worth that “bombing out of last semester stigma”.

    • That’s definitely the beauty of them! Papers on the other hand… I kid. I do have a paper to finish, but the worst of that is over. Thank you.

  6. Good luck with the exams, Rose. If your procrastination has evolved to posting photos of yourself looking like a hermit pirate online, I *really* wish you the best of luck getting in gear! 🙂
