Merry Christmas!

It's been a bit quiet on the blog lately and my excuse is the same as always lately (with the added stress of Christmas)...
I've been in Sweden since Wednesday and so far I've been resting, eating, reading and trying to ignore all the school work I'm supposed to do over Christmas break. And celebrating Christmas of course! (with even more eating)
With regards to presents it was a good haul this year.
And just now, over dinner, me and my aunt have decided to make our own Christmas beer next year!

That is what will keep me going today. I was up half the night writing that damn sociology essay that's due at noon today. It's not completely finished but an hour or so in the library should crack it.
This is my last assignment before Christmas (I'm ignoring the ones I have to do over the Christmas break) and tomorrow is our last day of college. I think it's very likely that as soon as I've emailed in the essay I'll be on Christmas break in my head!
Right now it's all about trying to get as much caffeine as possible into my body...

Stiffen the sinews

Knee deep in a sociology essay due at noon on Monday. Not making much progress if I'm honest. My soundtrack seems to be some sort of medley of live rap on BBC 4 (yes I am one of those people who watch BBC 3 and 4) which may be part of the problem. So far the soundtrack of my studies has been Tender Hooligans self-titled debut album. It's to them I dedicate my two distinctions. Their music is available to download from the usual places and also on spotify if you want to try before you buy.

Not entirely sure what this blog post is actually about so I might just throw this in here as well: I finally managed to wirelessly connect my brand spanking printer to my laptop today! It only took me two days to get it sorted out.
(yes, it's ok to break into spontaneous applause at this point)

Once more unto the breach dear friends!
