Oh, uni's keeping me extremely busy these days. I've so many essays, presentations, tests and just general reading to do that I'm actually feeling like I am a student. And now that I'm not a first year anymore, I'm starting to take all this just a wee bit more seriously, haha. I was meant to do a lot of work today, but instead I've tackled quite a bit of procrastination. (I'm procrastinating even as we speak, it's what I do best..) Wednesdays are my day off, so I'd say that going to the library only to print out a few things was productive. Ish. After that I forgot about being productive, and may have watched more than the one episode of TV I said to myself I'd watch. Uh oh.

I should probably say something about my outfit or the poppies, but my mind's too preoccupied. The sooner I stop procrastinating, the sooner I can stop thinking about the Beveridge Report, problems in dynastic succession or the chiastic word order!

I've just started to follow your blog so I don't know much about you. What are you studying at Uni? I know how it feels to have work pile ontop... I'm the Vice President at my Univeristy so I'm pretty accustomed to Uni life now. I live your outfit by the way. Effortlessly beautiful.
