Yes, yes, yes... As they say procrastination is the thief of time. I have spent the day procrastinating about my essay and lo and behold I still haven't done one iota of work towards it! Gonna have to get up early and get to work on it. Tonight is a bust!
Apart from that I had a great day showing prospective student around halls of residence.

I gave the parents a speech about how safe and secure Exmouth is and I gave the students a speech about how fun fresher's fortnight is and how drunk they will get (although we ask students to drink responsibly).

On the other hand I recieved my book today about the Falklands war. It'sby Raymond Briggs, that bloke that did the Snowman (walking in the air).
It's called the THE TIN-POT FOREIGN GENERAL AND THE OLD IRON WOMAN. It's actually quite sexual in the pictures(Margret Thatcher as a metal woman wearing suspenders with cannon that look like phaluses.. or is that phalli?) But it really brings home the reality of war on a  personal level. I probably wouldn't use it in a class but it's a damn good book anyway. Equal to 'When the Wind Blows'.
Anyway, got an essay that won't write itself and about 16 hours to write it!

Check this page soon for more riveting details.

Mood - Slightly worried
Music - Jolene - Queen Adreena
Edited - Never

oh-an essay to write-that's the pits-BUT the good thing about an essay is that it makes you formulate your thoughts into something somewhat cohesive and makes you realise how much you really DO know-trying to be positive  .The maggie picture sounds...disturbing .

I'm an English specialist and preparing for primary school. All I seem to do is write about books. It can be difficult finding subplots and imagery in 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar'
