Today is my last day of freedom, my Christmas break is almost over =(
I have been off since about the 16/17th of December, long break I know but these last few weeks have gone so slow, for the most part I had no money so I feel like I spent the first 13 days of January just sitting around waiting for my student finance loans to go in, it is now the 19th and my last day of being free to do whatever I want, I’m back at uni bright and early tomorrow, nice 9am start YAY! (Not), I commute from my home which is about 30 miles from my university, so I have to get up at about 6am to get in at 9am, Mondays are very long days for me but I don’t mind so much because in between lectures we get a 3 hour break, so I hang out with my friends, get some dinner and play on the PS4 that the uni owns.
Other than Monday I’m in on a Tuesday and a Friday, these two days aren’t too bad, I’m only in from 3pm til 5pm both those days.
So this has been my last week off, this one feels like it has flown by, I spent most of it with my boyfriend, we went into Stafford on Monday so that he could hand in his dissertation, that was a very stressful day, mostly for him, cause it was one of them days if something could go wrong it would, the printer got jammed whilst he was trying to print his work off and then we had a disaster binding it, but he got it finished and handed in now he only has one meeting left on the 23rd and he is done with uni forever!
Tuesday was shopping day! My boyfriend and myself went to spend the day in Birmingham, I bought some new clothes and we went for some dinner at Ed’s Easy Diner, if you live in or near Birmingham I strongly advise going there, the food is amazing, however if you do go, go in the week, Saturday and Sunday it is practically impossible to get a table. My boyfriend also had a £20 voucher for Ed’s so we got £26.80 worth of food for £6.80, amazing deal! We then took a trip to Forbidden Planet and Nostalgia Comics as we go to at least one every time we come to Birmingham, we hadn’t been to Nostalgia in a while so that made for a nice change!
Wednesday & Thursday were spent relaxing and playing games, Wednesday night however my friend who has moved to Scotland was back in town so we met up with her and her boyfriend for a spontaneous night out, we had a few drinks and a good catch up then headed home, we walked the 3 miles back to my house, in the rain cause there are very few taxis of a Wednesday night, my boyfriend stayed over at mine and then Thursday day time was spent playing Lego Indiana Jones on my PS3, I’ve had this game for ages and it is very hard to complete on your own, we started out coop session ages ago and finally completed the game Thursday =D
Friday was a busy day, me and the boyfriend went to Asda to buy some booze, we were having a night in at his house with one of our mates, we figured it would be cheaper to just get the alcohol and snacks in ourselves, it also meant we didn’t need to pay for a taxi or walk home and we wouldn’t have to sit and talk in a noisy pub all night, we played some games and watched the Dredd film, didn’t get to bed til 3am but it was a great night, and made a nice change from the usual.
Saturday was another day of relaxing, I spent the day at my boyfriends, we played a few games in the morning and then in the afternoon we were looking after our niece, she’s almost two and is so much fun to play with, she does crazy things that make us laugh and gives out lots of kisses =D we spent the afternoon running around the house with her, playing run people over with her dolls pram and playing super baby, which involved me picking her up and running round with her, which I quickly realised was not such a good idea when I got tired and she just wanted me to do it more, it was fun though =P
And here we are at today, Sunday, my last day of freedom, today was a day well spent, I went to the cinema with my boyfriend and aunt to see The Hobbit, we went to a 12:30 viewing and I have not been back long, I think we got back at about 4pm, the film was close to 3 hours long, it was very good though, the only thing I didn’t like was how it ended, it’s not fair!! to just leave you hanging, if you have seen it you will know what I mean =P I heard mixed reviews about it before I went, but after seeing it I can’t work out where people were getting the bad reviews from, if you have seen it what did you think? I enjoyed it!
It is now 5:40pm and I’m sat here finishing this post and trying to think about what to write for today’s Zero To Hero challenge, I thought it would be interesting to share with you what I did with my last week of “freedom” the grind starts tomorrow, back to uni to finish the year, I have 12 weeks and then I’m done for summer, til September, so I guess it will go pretty fast, it did last year.
I’ve had a lot of fun over my Christmas break, the holiday was super long, it’s probably going to be even longer next year, I’ve spent lots of time with my wonderful family and now it is time to see my friends again!
Hope you enjoyed this super long post =P
