Wow, it's been a while since my lovely rants have reached the pages of my LiveJournal - so here is another one ...well an update of my life I suppose.
Primarily I got a job - at Sainsbury's! You'd think that after working at Tesco I'd get the idea that Supermarkets are just boring to work for, but alas I need the money to sustain myself over the summer so I can continue to live in Manchester and continue to live the student lifestyle next year without money worries. I gotta say that money worries are part of the student life (at least for me anyways) as I'm coming out of it with £21,000 worth of debt and a piece of paper which doesn't even guarentee me a job! Saying that, I don't even know what I want to do after graduation. What to do with a Human Geography degree is perhaps the biggest question I have - What the hell CAN I do? I have no clue ...well apart from doing a Masters Degree, which costs even more money and an extra year of even more intense study. -le sigh- I can only hope that it all works itself out: stay at Sainsbury's and decide on a career is my current plan and it's not really a plan to be honest

Looking at my results for the second year things seem to be going to plan. I got an average of a 2:2 which admittedly I was a little disappointed with, but is a good grade. I think the grade is lower than expected because I failed did badly on my economic geography exam. The question was so harsh
 "Explain and analyse Gramsci's notion of economic hegemony and compare it to the notion of Neo-Sciumptionism" 
WTF!!! Gramsci's notion of economic hegemony is easy but there are four other Neo things and they're all completly different. Needless to say I failed  scored badly but they let me pass because I did really well in my other modules. Exams are not my strong point. I think I did well in my A-levels because I was in a room on my own with an invigilator and a scribe (I'd broken my wrist a few months before the exams and the doctors had to pin it back together, meaning that writing for an extended period of time was very painful) and it didn't really feel like a exam environment. Therfore I was less stressed and did very well (Two Bs and a C!!!).
It's summer now and I'm working loads but I got to start working on my dissertation. It's about gay space as a "safe haven or a site of resistence". I'm mainly focusing on heterosexual and bisexual views on Manchester's Gay Village meaning I get to spend my time going to the Village for drinking and chatting up girls research.

Well, gotta go now. Cya soon!

Andy Sachs added a few more notes to her brief before turning her attention to the person standing patiently in the doorway of her office.

“Drew Brooks on line three” her assistant Katrina offered with a smile and disappeared around the doorway returning to her desk. Sighing heavily, Andy picked up the phone hoping to end the call quickly. Conversations with her boss never ended well.

“Drew. Hi, what can I do for you?”

“I’ll cut straight to the point here Andy; I need you to pick up an extra client. A very influential client, who will do wonders for this company’s reputation-”

“You mean your reputation” Andy interrupted irritated by Drew’s arrogance. “As you said yourself last week, I’ve already got too many clients, and I quote wanting to help them all will ruin my so-far unblemished professional reputation. You expect me to risk all of that?”

“Andy” Drew chuckled, “You’re an amazing lawyer. One of the best. I’m sure you can handle her.”
”Her?”

“Yes her. She’s an old friend from way back in the midst of a divorce. She enquired about our law firm and I suggested you. You have a meeting with her at three thirty. Don’t be late, she hates being kept waiting.”

Andy let out a frustrated groan as she looked at the clock on her computer monitor. Only an hour to prepare.

“Ok, I’ll do it. The client’s name?”

“Miranda Priestly”

 

 

Andy visibly shook as the phone clattered to the floor. Miranda Priestly, the ‘Dragon Lady’ was her new client! How could she have been so foolish? Miranda Priestly her former boss who she had walked out on in Paris. The former boss who had blacklisted her to all major publications. It had been Andy’s lifelong ambitioin to become a journalist for the New Yorker, but those dreams and ambitions were shattered by the three little words uttered by Miranda: “My biggest disappointment”. A reference like that was difficult to bound back from and Andy was forced to rely on her earlier acceptance to study law at Stanford. Now a respected and accomplished lawyer, Andy had expected to leave her earlier time at Runway behind her. But now, the Devil herself was infiltrating her new life, and Andy vowed she would not let Miranda treat her the same way with her ever increasing and impossible demands.

 

 

“Fuck!” Andy smashed her fist down on her desk. She was not looking forward to representing Miranda Priestly.

Hey, so here I am two days before the deadline of my last piece of university coursework (well for this year anyway) and I just can't seem to find the motivation to get started! I have the notes and research, but writing the darn report is darn near impossible ...whoever thought it was a good idea to let me loose with a two month deadline is seriously deranged. If you want me to do a piece of coursework give me a week and I'll be right on it. Giving me two months gives me the oppotunity to put things off: "I can do that tomorrow" has turned into, "oh my God, it's due in two days!" Panic Mode is just setting in, and I should really be getting on with it but youtube and reading fanfiction seems to be higher on my list of priorities at the moment.  
It was my intention to wake up around 9am today so that I could get a couple of hours done ... but then The Jeremy Kyle Show was on the T.V and I just had to watch the chavy people arguing over silly domestic issues. 
Well, I think this calls for drastic measures. I am going to take my laptop, notes, books and a big mug of tea into the kitchen so that the internet and what-not can't distract me. Maybe that way I can get some actual work done and cut down some of the work tomorrow. As I plan on going to see the new Indiana Jones movie at the cinema tomorrow night then I must get it done, or at least start so that tomorrow won't be as daunting ...
