In the next week I have 2 exams and 2 essays to hand in. That’s it. It’s all over, for this year. I’m 800 words through my 2500 word essay on the double within Gothic literature. It’s going alright. I’m aiming to have another 500 words done tomorrow and then the last of it on thursday. I’ve also got my Fiction piece due in on Friday, and have only 400 words. That should be fine though. Friday is completely dedicated to Fiction.

My first exam is on Thursday and is on Modernism within Britain. We were given a list of topics and told it would be best to choose one, and include The Waste Land. It seemed stupid not to choose the poetry one so I’m focusing on The Waste Land and Ezra Pound’s Imagist poetry. I’m going to try and talk about Elliot’s Lovesong of J. Alfred Prufrock as well. I’m feeling alright about this one. It’s only 1 and a half hours long. I’ve proved to myself that I can write about these poems and am just going to get on with it. My big problem with the exam at the moment is that it was originally scheduled to be at 3pm. Then it was moved to 9am because of a room change. I’m happy with this change as it allows me to spend the rest of the day doing the Gothic essay. Then I get an email last week saying there could be a clash so it might be changed. That’s the last I’ve heard. I’m guessing I’m going to get another email tomorrow confirming where and when it is actually going to take place. So other than not knowing where, or when, the exam is I’m feeling pretty good about it.

Next week is going to be the biggest test of the year. Eighteenth Century 2 hour exam. Can’t wait for that to be over. 

Not really much else to say this week. Most of my time is taken up with revision and essay writing.

Thanks for reading,
