And so, this weekend, I've made it my mission to sort out all the little things that have been biting at my toes. It's bad enough that my Father's Day card is going to arrive late, but I'll bash myself over the head with a damp fish if I let anything else go awry this early in the last half of term.
Thus, my mission list runs as follows:
- Send Father's Day card.
- Raid university prospectuses and online sites to choose the final university that I will be applying to this summer.
- Get multiple forms signed by the appropriate authority figures.
- Further research for my Extended Essay.
- Get to work on the poem and one-act play that I need to conjure up in order to enter a pair of competitions.
- Fill in UCAS account and start work on Personal Statment in order not to make a mess of the aforementioned university applications.
- Watch Thor with my housemates. Do best not to sob too much.
It's hardly an arduous list, I know, but after digging my way throught half the internet looking for symbolic meaning in a portrait of Elizabeth I for history - unsuccessfully, I might add - I know I've got to get them done before anything else creeps up behind me.
Also, before I go, you may note that the topmost image on the right-hand sidebar of this blog has changed. Although Miriam and I are both still embroiled in school, her GCSE exams will soon be over and that means we can finally make the last push to finish off St Mallory's Forever! , edit it up and get it sent out to all you lovely people!
Clicking on the image will take you through to St Malls' official blog, where you can find out all about the authors, a bit of story background, and several informative posts by Miriam and myself about boarding school, progress on the novel, and an attack by a marauding Norse god.
Oh, and here's a picture of the cover in big version. So you can all dribble and make excited noises appropriately.
Fare thee well, readers! I shall see you on Tuesday - have a lovely weekend!
