Things are weird right now. I've been in a lot of peculiar situations, but this one may well be the strangest of them all.

Maaaan, I have already failed in my challenge, LJ is so easy to forget about these days!
'And that's it for today chaps!' - I actually said this to my pile of revision. What...?
So I have a TA interview in Cambridge next Monday, which I've had no time to prepare for. I figured it'd be a similar set up to my one last year, which involved a tour, a student panel interview and a teacher interview. EXCEPT NO.

In many ways this seems better - it's individual for the tour so you don't have to worry about speaking up over the other applicants, and there is no student panel - though being interviewed by 11 year olds WAS pretty awesome. Except this not only has a half an hour interview (!) but a 20 minute 'task.'

What the frick is this task?

Is it a teaching task? Is it a design a I.E.P for a child with special needs?

Ordinarily, this wouldn't be such a big deal, but I haven't had a chance to plan for this interview yet due to my Latin exams, and now I'm a leetle bit concerned. I've had to do a fake lesson before for that PGCE interview way back when, but I feel a little out of my depth for this.

I trod on a pin on my way to Latin today. What the frick? Pin in the middle of the path? Why?!

So my first (of two) exams is on Thursday - I feel ever so slightly more prepared, but I'm still mostly full of terror. My vocab is nowhere near as advanced as I'd like it to be, so I'm worried about the unseen Ovid. Please to be not too insanely poetic, Ovid? Your poem about the death of Celsus was mental near the end!

Me, Jen and Reu are planning a trip to Bournemouth for a beach day next Friday...I wonder if the weather will stop being rainy and cold by then? :)
Today is stressful and not good, so have some Florence; she makes everything better.

All I've done today was 5 hours of Makro work, which made me too tired to get much actual revision done, boo. So instead, have this gorgeous version of 'love the way you lie.'

I've done nothing except a bit of revision today, so you get this video of me, V and Mike's journey to Laura's last weekend:

What is up, boo(s)?

I had a two hour Latin lesson in Caversham this morning at 9.45am. Caversham is a 40 minute walk away. I went to sleep at 3am due to sexting. I'm sure the maths speaks for itself as to how little sleep I am running on! The lesson was pretty good though - last night I sat down to a 2 hour verse past paper (this is how I spend my nights these days, I'm so lame) and flailed over how horrendous it was, especially you, Ovid's Fasti, you were nasty. Yet somehow I got 77%, which is 3 marks off an A. What...just..how?! I didn't understand most of the unseen, and had to bulletpoint one of the essays as to write it properly would have made me cry with how little I had to say. Reassuring and yet omg, so much unknown vocab. Stupid A2, Uni lets you bring a dictionary in with you...

Also there has been a domestic upstairs and that was most awkward, especially as I'm revising so I couldn't subtly visit a friend or anything. I miss visiting friends damn it!

I had a lush panini earlier - butternut squash, hummus, spinach and feta? Oh god, the glory.

...Yeah, expect many entries to be like this til I finish my challenge!

To make up for it, have a song that WILL NOT leave my head. It's called Ambling Amps by Yeasayer, and it is wonderful.

So, I'm going to try and update this every day for a month. I'm sure to fail. Here is a photo taken this weekend of a few of my favourite people, being ourselves. :)
