final fresher days: my room ~ Victoria

It’s hit me today as I went around town with Rachel to steal boxes from Tesco to pack things in that first year is basically nearing its end, and I am freaking out at how quickly time has passed. How am I already a Uni student for a year and how did I even manage…

exam countdown: d-2 ~ Victoria

Oops this was supposed to be yesterday. Idk what happened yesterday except that I stayed up really late, slept at 4. Finished revising poetry – focusing on sonnet, elegy, open form and hopefully imagery/symbolism/stanza will all be in there. The way the poetry exam works is that they ask you questions based on form or…
