Dreadful Nonsense

"I've read your blog. it's really funny. you should write a column." - Jon Ronson

Excuses, excuses

Yes, I know it's been ages. Blah blah, work pressure, la la la exams looming, excuses could rain down thick and fast on yo' collective asses, but I really can't be bothered. You people are not the boss of me. My final Open University exam is the boss of me, and that boss has forced me to sit in my bedroom on my own for three of today's lovely Sunday hours studying Long Term Memory and Problem Solving, of all things, instead of traipsing about the marshes or rewarding myself with a mid-afternoon pint, or going shopping, or tidying up, or redecorating some corner of the flat, or descaling the kettle, or peeling all of the skin off my own face, all of which I would have preferred doing rather than being trapped in a hell of my own making, having to sit with endless different pieces of paper trying to understand Jacoby's process-dissociation framework (which I still don't quite understand, and at this stage I don't think I ever will). I've got an exam on Thursday. It is, like every exam everyone has ever taken, the most important exam I'll ever sit, and at the same time the least likely to have any kind of long lasting effect on my memory. I have wasted every lunch hour at work for the last two weeks, sacrificing to them to the god of revision and staring at walls, and every train journey I've taken has been spent staring at notes and taking in exactly no information at all. I hate learning. I'm not good at learning. Learning is my enemy. I can't wait until the day I never have to learn again (that will be the day He Who Only... will finally get rich).

In the meantime, people, I'll be studying. From next Friday, when the exam is behind me and I start studying for the inevitable re-sit, I will have something else to blame my lack of blogging on. In the meantime, you'll have just have to put with the fact that I'm trying to better myself and just deal with finding something else on the internet that is almost as interesting as listening to the finer details of my very boring life. I would suggest http://www.peelingtheskinoffmyownface.co.uk/ as a starting point.
