Tonight brought about episode 3 of the new series of The Apprentice here in the UK. Lord Alan Sugar arranged for the two teams to split in two again to commence their Treasure Hunt Shopping List Challenge, the reason being they were to buy both in Calais and England!
The teams were given the evening before travel to decide who would go to France and who was staying behind before also allocating the items between the group. The boys of Team Versatile took the tactical decision to send French speakers across the water and allowed for movement. The girls, on the other hand, split in two teams and had very little discussion as to what was being purchased where.
We settled down to watch as a flat, and we had invited Connel over too. In the 5 minutes leading up to the show, hot chocolate was made, popcorn was shoved in the microwave and I had a pudding that strangely resembled Christmas Pudding (shhh…). Once it started, we took up positions on the sofas and wrapped ourselves in blankets.
I won’t go into too much detail about the task in case I ruin it for anyone watching on BBC iPlayer. All I would say is we were hoping for a double elimination.
Today was my first near breakdown about uni work and it made me realise how little I did last year. No matter how hard I try to stay on top of the work, it just seems to be piling up with no end in sight. Whilst talking to my physics lab partner about the deadlines, we realised that I have a seminar presentation and an 800 word essay due on November 11th – the same day as my physics class test which contributes 15% to my overall grade. Normally this wouldn’t be a problem except there isn’t physically enough time for me to make it from my seminar to physics on time for this class test which leaves me in the awkward position of having to leave the seminar early. Yes I should’ve been more aware of the dates when I was choosing my seminar presentation but someone had to take that specific one and I was the 3rd last to sign up. On top of this though, I also have a Maths Feedback Homework that contributes to my overall grade due for the exact same day and is only given to us on November 9th. Finally, I have two literature reports to hand in on November 13th for Physics.
Needless to say I began to panic because somewhere in there I need to start actually revising for exams and I am trying to socialise more this year but in a more controlled way.
Tonight after dinner I started my research for my seminar paper. If I can get that prepared then I don’t have to look at it again until the night before. Once I do that I will then start on the physics revision. So much to do and so little time and on top of it I am exhausted! But at the same time really wanting to find someone to just hang out with or go out with or something. #foreveralone…..
Anyway I am going to sleep now that there is a clear path from my bed to my door and to my desk. Tomorrow, Operation Guests Coming will spring into action with the initial attack of emptying my bin. Wish me luck!!
