/ BECC4: Sick Tings 013

Sick Tings 013

So, this week started slightly differently to usual, thank youuuuu Bank Holiday Monday. On Sunday night I attended a drum and bass event, and it was definitely one of the best nights out I've ever been on, it definitely makes the top five. For anyone that's interested, we saw SASASAS who I'm actually seeing again at Mutiny festival in a couple of weeks time and I'm so so so excited. Get me in that dnb tent, even if my final exam is only 5 days from then... Ah well, all about living my best life and all that. 

I woke up on Monday morning, admittedly a little worse for wear, to the best text I could have received at that moment. My manager had messaged me saying that I didn't need to go into work today and he'd put it through as holiday. Hellooooo, sunny weather, Bank Holiday chilling.

One of my modules this semester involved participating in a debate, which if you follow me on twitter, I've been going on about a lot about recently. Essentially, we were given our topic one week before the debate but weren't told whether we were for or against the motion. So, we had to prepare arguments for both sides and 10 minutes prior to it beginning we were told which side of the debate we were arguing for. The motion my group was allocated was 'This house would not fund research into illegal drugs'. Considering how much I dislike public speaking, I think it actually went fairly well, wahey. Now that this is over, it means I only have two more modules to finish before second year is officially over! Where the fook has time gone ???

This week I also attended a very flashy, black tie event at uni. It was the volunteering awards, and involved a three-course dinner and plenty of wine. To be honest, I didn't particularly enjoy the food. The chicken main course was the best of the three, but I wasn't so impressed by the one roast potato on the plate? One? Fancy dining isn't for me, I need at least 17. Anyway, we managed to win the two awards we were nominated for, so that was incredible. We went up on stage, the president of the society did a speech, it was all really lovely and a bit of a shocker! No way were we expecting to Uber home with two awards under our belts...

Having not been at home-home in a while, I felt a trip to the land of comfy beds, delicious food and my fam was well overdue before exams well and truly took over. I did my uni park run and then headed back to my family casa. I had an incredible roast for lunch and then my Mum, Sister and I headed for some good ol' retail therapy. I actually picked up quite a lot of stuff, so expect a haul sometime soon... On Saturday evening I was subjected to Eurovision, and I'm not sure I have any words. What even???

What have you been up to this week?
