Second year of uni has gone by in a blur. We’re now 5 taught weeks away from the end of the semester and assignments are rushing up thick and fast. This is just a quick update to say how second year has gone so far.
This last year has so far been pretty successful. I took more time off work in first semester to concentrate on uni work and I came out of first semester on track for a 2:1! Last semester was possibly one of the most enjoyable semesters I have had at YSJ, all of my modules were well run and for a change I felt like I had time to breathe and organise my life in the way I wanted.
This semester my part time job has taken over once again. Working 25+ hour weeks on top of university and hoping all my assignments will be done in time. One positive of this semester is my linguistics module which is e-communication. Researching people’s online profiles and investigating how the online world is changing our language is one of the areas of linguistics that I have been most interested in throughout my time at uni.
There’s now only 2 taught weeks left until Easter break and my diary is pretty much packed for the rest of the term. Currently I’m sat with a coffee, staring at an outline for my first deadline of the semester, procrastinating putting any words down on paper till I actually understand the theories behind my research and hoping that my study playlist will actually motivate me to begin writing.
For now at least, uni is taking priority over all my activities (including this blog) so it might be a while before I catch up with my post schedule again!
Lets hope we have a more organised end to the semester …
