End of Term.

Yet again it has reached that point: the end of term.

This term has gone extremely quickly, I can't quite beleive it really. It only hit me last night as I was trying to get to sleep that that was it. It was the end of term, and I was going home on Sunday (tomorrow) and we had had the last seminar of our undergraduate careeer. I still don't think that its quite sunk in, but it's a very strange thought. How did that happen?

Granted I still have my dissertation to finish over Easter and another essay to write - maybe when that's all handed in it will feel more real.

How did the last three years disappear like that?

The Hunger Games

Yes, this is yet another one of those blog posts about The Hunger Games. Apologies. But I feel like I should say something. Certainly writing this is more productive than anything else I've really done today. Whoops. I blame the weather.

Finally saw The Hunger Games film yesterday, and it was BRILLIANT. I'd heard that it was a good film in itself and everything, and I was very excited about it, but still, I'm never sure when it's the film of a book. But this was so good. It is a few months since I'd read it, so the details in my mind were vague, and I left the book at home by mistake so I couldn't even revisit it, though perhaps that was best to be honest. Still, they got the story so accurate (I think) and my friends I went with who hadn't read the books got it all, so I think that's good. Anyway, I loved it all <3 Although I knew what was meant to be happening and I still got scared/jumpy - and tearful too. I woke up at two in the morning thinking that there were mutant wasp things everywhere and someone was waiting to kill me somewhere. Err, yeah... think I thought about that one a bit too much. I want to see it again though <3

Sunshine Award

I apolgise that am I seem to be posting at the minute are challenges and awards and such, life is busy what with a dissertation and everything to do - and such gorgeous spring weather outside! But I did start a long rambly post about YA books, which I will finish and post this week hopefully.

Anyway, the lovely Angeline has awarded me with the lovely sunshine award, which seems so approriate for the lovely weather we are having at the minute. Spring makes me so happy and I love daffidaols and bluebells and being able to be outside, and the warmth!

I have to answer some questions now:

Favourite color?
Purple probably.
Favourite animal?
Definitely cats.
Favourite number?
Favourite non-alcoholic drink?
earl grey tea and strong coffee (I can't choose)
Facebook or Twitter?
Twitter. Although FB is good for keeping in touch with people, its annoying.
My passion?
Books and writing.
Getting or giving presents?
Definitely giving.
Favourite pattern?
Pattern? Umm, my mind has gone blank...
Favourite day of the week?
I don't know if I have a favourite. I do like Fridays, because there's the hope of the weekend ahead. Sundays are nice too.
Favourite flower?

I'm meant to tag some other bloggers now... so....

1. Jenna
2. Akoss
3. Elodie
4. Sarah

I know it's not many, but I didn't want to give it to people who already had it, and so I'm sorry! Anyway, I may add some, but I want to post!

In case you didn't guess, I love Spring!

Anyway, back to the dissertation for now.
