At present, it is just under 13 days until the end of term! I have made a countdown (sad as I am) so I can keep checking up on both how long it is until the holidays as well as how long I have left to finish my project! See it here.
I actually make timers a lot. And lists, and notes… In fact, I was taking notes on my laptop of a documentary we were watching in a lecture, and my lecturer came up to me suspiciously to find out what I was doing! I’m sure he expected to see facebook or something up, with me in full swing convo about something completely unrelated to architecture. But no, I was just taking lots of notes. It’s not that I will necessarily ever read them again, but writing something down, or drawing it, helps me to take it in and retain the information, otherwise it washes over me a fair amount of the time.
Anyway so I have done a lot of Christmas shopping already (which I am pretty proud of) and have wrapped everything I have so far!
I plan to finish my shopping in London and maybe Edinburgh if I’m desperate!
Pinterest sent an email out a while ago, asking for gift idea boards, which they would then go on to promote to others. So I did that. I wasn’t quite expecting what happened though! I have had an influx of people liking, commenting, repinning and following my boards and ideas, which is quite exciting.
I might even feel a little bit famous!
Here are the gift boards I submitted, and maybe they can help you with some gift ideas if you need any!
Obviously, my favourite one is the architecture student one! But, being a bit of a geek and a koreaphile and a diva, I like the others too!
Christmas in uni is meaning that we are sorting out secret santa presents for each other. I have already sorted the present! Though I obviously can’t say what I got on here in case anyone sees it. It was difficult though, as the person I got, I don’t know all that well and also isn’t particularly easy to buy for. The two people I asked for help, agreed with me on that one!
But it is done, and due to be exchanged on Thursday. We are also having a “Christmas jumper day” though as I don’t own any, or indeed intend to own any, I will probably just dress up Christmassey and wear a Santa hat or something.
My dance teacher of years ago, who was also a great friend and basically part of the family, used to dress up in her Christmas tree costume every year. I miss that. I wish I had the costume, to wear to the Christmas jumper day. Maybe, one day, I can make myself one.
Good luck to everyone with deadlines, exams etc. And with getting your Christmas gifts sorted!
