School is out!

This morning we had a presentation of the group assignment we, as in we the group not the we as in me and my make believe friends, have been working on for the past couple of weeks. It was the last thing that happened in school for the semester so I am now officially on my summer break.
The first thing I did after class was out, was heading straight to the office! However, at four o’clock i realized how inefficient i was, closed down the computer and head home. I was just to excited about no more exam until august and not another class until September, in order to concentrate on work.
On my way home I stopped to get spidy some dinner ;

Today she was hungry she ate the little bugger straight away, which might also have had something to do with the fact that the little bugger rain straight into spidy when looking for cover. Not even the laziest spider on the planet can not eat the food then.

With no musts, no books to read, no exams to study for, I’m no on my couch just chillin with a nice cold beer.

Have an awesome evening peeps, I know I will 🙂

Exam day II

So, second exam of the week completed! The roughest part of the day was getting out of bed, no lazy morning chillin at home this time around as the exam started at eight and of course me and the studybuddy had to meet in good time, thus I found myself at the train station already at seven am, go figure!

image

The first point on the agenda was not-in-the-budget coffee, since I forgot to program my coffee maker last night.

image

The of course we had to do the standard trip to the grocery store.

Before we headed to the exam, an hour and a half later I had answered all the questions and are now sitting on the bus to work super excited as I haven’t been to work for a week and really missed it.

image

I don think it’s another B exam, however I’m pretty sure that I’ll pass and since my new attitude is that passing is enough as i am working as well, I feel (or at least trying to feel) pleased with myself.

Have an awesome Wednesday peeps!

Exam day!

The day arrived when I had to re-sit my organizational theory exam. My last attempt (and for most of my classmates) was horrible! However since I over the past few days have given up all reminiscence of having a life, looked myself in my apartment I hope that today’s effort will at least give me a pass, do not care about getting a good grade (well, maybe a little), just want to be able to put this course behind me.

Since it was an afternoon exam, I stayed up late last night going through the last bits, thus the alarm for this morning was set for eleven, and of course the day starts of with some;

I can’t say that there was much of an appetite, however one must eat before an exam and surprisingly enough a fry-up actually fit into the student budget, I’ve always seen it as luxury food, not anymore.wpid-img_20140505_121352.jpg

The indecision over the food made me a bit late, not for the exam but for meeting the Study Buddy. We have a tradition of meeting about an hour before our exams to get prepped. Today, because I don’t like being late I needed to do a small jog in order to make the train. imageI then realized, arriving to Lund, that I had remembered the wrong time, we were supposed to meet at 12:30 not 12:20 so the little jog and all the stress was totally unnecessary! Oh well, I did get a few minutes to review some more for the test, something I usually don’t really do it’s just that this time I was freaking out a bit, I don’t know why, I study in Sweden so if I don’t pass the exam this time either I can just sit it again, and again, and again and I figure that some of all those agains should give me a pass!

When the Study Buddy finally arrived we started our normal tradition of before exam activities, which start at the grocery store for exam snacks (mostly within the budget);wpid-dsc_0119.jpg

Then we go get the next class’s textbook for the Study Buddy at the second-hand bookstore before moving on to coffee.

When all this is done we usually head over to the location of exam and hang out until it’s time to start, it can then look like this;wpid-dsc_0122.jpg

After today’s exams I couldn’t tell you if there will be an again or not, it didn’t feel to great and my mood needed a boost. Since my friends tend to be grown-up’s I was out of luck finding someone who could help me drown my sorrows before I headed home in order to study for the next exam, so instead I did a little karma work by signing up as a blood donor. Today they only took a little blood since it’s for testing not donating, still I have the war wounds to show for it.wpid-dsc_0123.jpg

The rest of this so and so day will be spent with this baby;wpid-shot_1399307408870.jpg

Hope you my peeps had an awesome Monday too, tomorrow it’s Tuesday you know!

If you are dying to know what I’m up to

My phone has been with the phone people, trying to get it fixed. During that time I used one of my old phones with a horrible camera and no apps, that doesn’t do good for the blogger. They didn’t manage to fix it so on Friday they gave me a new phone, just the same as the old one.
My life haven’t been that exciting since though, I have to exams this week that I’m feeling thoroughly stressed about. I have given up all expectations on good grades and just want to pass them, so I spend my time here;

My lovely chair! The perfect reading spot, unfortunately the book I have to read for tomorrow is ridiculous. So instead of full focus and massive learning, I’m spending my time being annoyed with the crap language and silly comments in the book. Not the best of ways to study!

I have some fun stuff coming up at the end of the week though so I have something to look forward too.

Now, back to the book!

A Saturday in bed!

I met up with the multi-talented Lady D yesterday, and we managed to polish of two bottles of wine while talking about every topic possible, I will admit that the discussions becomes more and more heated after each glass of wine. We did meet up early though, I finished class at four and got an hour of studying done before Lady D finished work at five and the date could begin. That means that I was home in good time, and able to have a chillaxing evening on the couch, a well needed time-out as there is a busy weekend ahead.wpid-img_20140412_124854.jpg

I woke up, without an alarm, at eight this morning, got up and made some coffee that I brought back to bed with me, I then opened my textbook, yes! I’m studying, trying to be a good little student. I didn’t feel super happy with my performance after the last exam, and feel that I want to step up my game to ensure that the next one goes better, thus I will spend every waking time this weekend with my nose in my books.

In order to be a good student, you also need energy, which is why I made myself a lovely plate of brunch (that I also partook in bed) with my second attempt ever on hash browns, that turned out just perfect, and home-made bread. Pure luxury.wpid-img_20140412_124945.jpg

With a fresh pot of coffee, the break is now over and I will return to my book in marketing. Is it only me, or are they trying to make all these topic seem so much more complicated in these books than they actually are in real life? I’m getting dizzy from reading however when I write it up myself, removing all the additional stuff in the book it doesn’t really look like it need to be some complicated…maybe it’s one of those books where they get paid by word.

Some things are just meant to be

It was rough getting out of bed this morning, not only did I stay up too late watch TV last night (damn you double episodes of really good British crime that starts way to late) my phone was just full of messages of things to do or from people I don’t want to hear from. Thus I snoozed, turned around, went back to sleep and pretended that none of it was there.
It doesn’t work long-term though, there’s the class to attend, work to go to, phone calls to make and all that jazz. So I did get up, got my coffee, packed my bag and headed out my door. Just as I locked that door I heard steps coming up the stairs, steps that turned out to belong to my mailwoman, a lovely woman, who was very happy to see me because I saved her having to carry a package back to the postoffice. So just in-time for my first class in marketing, my textbook arrived so i could start reading it on the train to school.

If I would have been on time this morning, I would not have met her and gotten my book today but maybe on Wednesday, and since I have eight (!) chapters to read this week, having to book already is just perfect – sometimes it’s just meant to be.

Benefits of working

Every week two things happen in the office, the fruit baskets arrive and Friday morning breakfast. Depending on how many people are in the office during the week and on Friday mornings, there are more or less fruit and bread leftover on Friday afternoon/evening.

image

My colleagues have made it clear that they would be more than happy to se none of the left-overs to go to waste. The bread dries up over the weekend and on Monday a new fruit basket arrives so no one eats out of the old one. They have also made it very clear that the poor student that usually leaves last on Fridays are more than welcome to remedy the situation. Thus I ate a real yum fruit salad for breakfast this morning, free of charge!
