The Cleverest Blondes We Ken [What’s getting me through writing today]

EDIT: Just realised the lyric is ‘the cleverest blondes we ken’ [we know]. Damn Doric, I’ll never understand it.

Check out The View – the band, not the awful talkshow for soccer moms – from Dundee. I need something relatively peppy today to start me up and keep me going. Waking up at 6.30am today felt like sleeping in. There’s something wrong with that.

One month to go [I hate countdowns]

I woke up this morning with the worst feeling in my stomach knowing that I now have just one month until my thesis is due.

Not shockingly, this is the same feeling I had when I woke up on July 19, 2006, which was precisely one month until I was to write the MCAT. I felt like I knew nothing despite studying for freakishly long hours and keeping immaculate notes. In the end, my summer devoted to studying paid off.

But this seems to be a different beast. There is no strategy involved for thesis writing, or if there is (disabling Facebook?), I’m not aware of it. What I am aware of, however, is that probably many sleepless nights and non-nutritious meals (if I can even be bothered) lay ahead of me. At least I’ve got two people helping me out this time round.
