Well, what a weird term this is turning out to be. On the one hand, i couldn't be happier with the ways things are going.....i've met some amazing people, made great friends and have enjoyed university life to its fullest. Also i've had the chance to play in some amazing concerts....we did Stravinsky's Symphony of Psalms last night with our college orchestra and it was the most astounding concert i've ever played in. If you don't know the piece.....try to listen to it. It blew me away....i felt so lucky to have played in it.
Also, Cambridge is an AMAZING city (or town, whichever you prefer). The architecture of some of the colleges is simply beautiful, and it is an overwhelming feeling when walking through a college or part of town that could be more than 500 years old. No wonder the place is crawling with tourists all the time :-s.
And of course with every high, there comes a low.....That low is W-O-R-K. I don't mind doing it...in fact i love my degree course....but i have had scant reward for it so far. I know I am just meant to get on with it, but my tutorials have been hell on earth in a lot of cases. The worst one actually came last term when i was accused by one of my supervisors of not taking a piece of work that he had set seriously, when in fact i had spent ELEVEN hours working for it. Asshole. As i said in my previous blog, i'm trying to work hard to get better, but I don't want to sacrifice everything else i am enjoying. I think i'm finding it hard to strike a balance.
Til Next Time.
P.S. vote me for POM :-p
