The End is Close

March 27th is the date of my last ever University lesson. It’s not a lecture, instead I’ve got to give a 10 minute presentation on Victorian Fantasy with a friend. We have chosen to talk about how radical the genre was during the Victorian era. So far we have a basic outline. I’m not exactly worried. It’s only 10 minutes. 

After that I have an exam, on the 6th May. Romanticism. Not my strongest subject, but it should be alright. We will be having a look at exam papers next Tuesday and that should make it a lot easier. 

Everything else will be done at home. Just my Dissertation, Fiction and Creative Reading & Writing portfolio left. It’s hard to believe that my education is this close to an end. As long as nothing goes wrong I will never have to write an essay, or do an exam ever again. A really good feeling. I keep on forgetting I have to actually do it now, because I’m looking forward to it ending so much. 

I thought I would panic more once it was close to the end, but I’m not panicking at all. I feel like only good things can come from it. 

This weekend is the third London Super Comic Con. I went to the first two and they were two of the best weekends ever. Comics and geekiness. All with a Friday night playing games beforehand. Can’t get much geekier than that really. This year I’m looking forward to seeing Dave Gibbons, Jonathan Ross, Sean Phillips, John Layman, Mark Buckingham and Gary Leach. 

I recently started reading Zom-B: Gladiator by Darren Shan. Finally. I bought it the day it came out, back in January. But for reasons I can’t explain I didn’t pick it up. I kept going to, but didn’t. I’m about 50 pages from the end and plan on doing a review for it once I’m finished. 

Thanks for reading,
