I am in limbo at the moment. September is that kind of month. Fluctuating temperatures have me flip flopping between switching over wardrobes or hanging on for that Indian summer (that is always promised). Those pumpkin spice lattes that I desire right up until my first sip when I remember why I only have one per year. A DVR that is empty because the summer shows have ended and the new seasons have yet to begin. And of course, waiting on my school materials to arrive and quietly freaking out that this is my final year.

FINAL YEAR, bitches!

I can’t quite believe that I have almost got through this BA. Five years of juggling work and school, and ignoring Alex for most of the year. Just three courses (‘Greek Drama’, ‘Women in Classical Antiquity’ and ‘From Nero to Hadrian: literature & society’) are standing between me and graduate school. Oh that and learning some languages and GMATs. Fun times ahead, but at least I am a hell of a lot closer to my goal than when I started in 2005.


Well, I just don’t know where to start.

I have been home from work for half an hour and all I have achieved is catching up with two episodes of the Archers and supping on my delicious pumpkin spice latte (which makes me feel very wizard like when I ask for it). I was about to listen to Woman’s Hour but I think I need something more up beat to get me going. So I now have Space’s Greatest Hits blearing out and it will shortly be followed by Scissor Sister.

I gotta list as long as my arm of things to do, study, watch and read. Aargghh. I think what we need is an extra day, squeeze it in between Wednesday and Thursday. A chance to breath and catch up. Now why can’t the politicians add that to their manifestos – it would get my vote!

BTW, quite a few of my friends have commented that they are disappointed by Kerry’s performance in the debates. Seeing him as the lesser of two evils and the new broom for a regime change. Whilst I am becoming even more enamoured by him and feel his controlled stance is to appeal to moderate Republicans. I was blown away by his answer on the abortion question. Not difficult to understand, just not a sound bite. Well, life is one big grey area that shouldn’t be boil down to a phrase that can be emblazoned on a tee shirt.
