Jimmy part 14 has now been uploaded and can be read HERE. The last part will be uploaded next week, either on Tuesday or Wednesday.
Uni is approaching fast. While I set out to be over prepared and ready for my final year, now that it’s only the weekend away I know I’m not. I’ve read a couple of the set texts, but not all of them, I’m just under halfway through my dissertation, while I had hoped I would have finished it by now. I don’t even know how to prepare for Creative Writing and Reading 3, and I couldn’t name one poem from the romantic period. All things which will change by Christmas, hopefully.
I do have a couple of aims this year. Since I’ve only got 1 heavy reading module I plan on reading every text and not skipping the mind numbing boring ones, like I did more than a few times last year. At the time I did have 4 heavy reading modules and just read ones that I could get in to.
I want to feel more confident about reading out loud. I know I’m still going to get nervous, but I want to get through at least a couple of weeks without worrying about the next workshop night and day. I have 2 modules with workshops in, which is the same as last year. I know I’m not going to get along with Creative Reading and Writing, just by reading the module guide. But my focus is more aimed at Fiction 3. But as I haven’t been enrolled in that module yet I still don’t have a clue about it.
I also hope I enjoy the books more this year. Since I’m doing the Victorian fantasy module this shouldn’t be a problem. So far I’ve read The Jungle Book and The King of the Golden River and really enjoyed the books. I’m 5% through The Water Babies and finding it interesting so far.
A big aim this year is to get the assignments done as quickly as possible, while last year I did some of them with a week to spare, there were a couple of times when I was looking at the clock, seeing 11pm and thinking I’ve still got 500 words to go. I want to feel more comfortable with my timings this year.
Enough about uni. This week I haven’t done much that isn’t related to uni. I’ve started Kingdom Hearts 1.5 which is the re-release of the original kingdom hearts from 11 years ago along with RE: Chain of Memories and the cut scenes from 358/2 days. One of my favourite games of all time. I love anything to do with Disney. Can’t wait for the next one. I’m hoping for Toy Story world, Bugs Life world, The Incredibles world and a Tangled world. A Star Wars one would be nice as well, but doubtful.
Thanks for reading,
