Exams are done with now, which means (for those of you who want to keep score) I've only got 9 hours of official educational exams left. Unless I fail any, in which case I get to come back in August, with sunburn and a raffia donkey under my arm, and resit them.

You'd think that without the pressure of exams, I'd blossom, bloom into a cheerful, sunnily disposed individual, but luckily that wasn't the case, and I've just found different things to stress about. I leave uni this weekend, spend a week down in the south, then fly up to the island for as long as I can hack without running out of things to do and resorting to cannibalism.

Watching>>> (is >>> better than ///? I'll try it.) Arrested Development, season 1. If you've not seen it, it's the cleverest, funniest comedy I've seen.

Doing>>> Wandering around aimlessly, watching endless films and TV episodes.

Listening>>> French version of Robyn's Who's that Girl

Voting>>> Local and European elections... massive anti-climax after voting, sad in the knowledge that for my one vote, there were probably going to be double for mad parties.

Reading>>> Ross Kemp on Afghanistan. I know, but I surprisingly enjoyed the TV show, which involved Ross running after soldiers while getting shot at. He has a bit of a swagger, but I'm impressed by anyone who's up for going into a war-zone and not being allowed to have a gun. That said, the book feels like he just watched back the documentary and that was what jogged his memory... it feels a bit familiar.

Photographical (I know it's not a word, but I like it.) evidence that I've left the flat at least once this week>>>
