I think I’ve found my balance. Been planning out my future modules and I’m quite excited to delve deeper into what is going on this term as well as the next. So far I don’t feel very mentally stretched or challenged but I suppose that’s because I’m only attempting level 1000 mods this couple of terms. I’ve got next semester’s modules down (as far as I know) and it’s looking good. My only gripe is that my timetable this semester is shite. 5 day work week thanks to a muck up during balloting and pure bad luck, with a couple of tight squeezes but I’ll survive. Just came to the realisation that I have a couple of days with only lectures which I could skip. The literature lecture would be the first to go in that case.

Been sitting in on lectures alone which is quite enjoyable and chill actually. I find that I focus better in solitude, when I have no one else/anyone being “noise” around me. It also forces independence. If you miss it, you don’t have someone else to fall back on unless you ask the person next to you. I wish I had more modules like this – lectures and tutorials with less group interaction although it can be nice.

And life goes on.
