The Week That Was #2

Tell you what, the best way for me to fail at doing something is to set it as a weekly blog post. I was just happily tapping along on the keyboard when I thought, oh hang on, shouldn't I have posted my weekly series yesterday? Yes, past Chelsea, yes you should have. But let's not worry about that. Maybe it'll be easier to post these things a day late, or heck, even a day early if I'm that way inclined. All that matters is that I type, right? 

Sure it is! So what have I been up to the past week then? In all honesty, I have been going a bit mad with uni deadlines. I had a deadline on Monday, so naturally Sunday was spent realising that I'd referenced everything incorrectly (damn you, numerical!) and sourcing images that kind of related to what I was blarbing on about. To make myself feel better, I ordered myself some dresses from ASOS and I only have to return one item, score! 

Sadly, despite the relief that came from Monday evening, I still have another deadline due on Friday, and this meant that I spent Tuesday morning crying on the train. YEP. That's my life now. I've no idea what came over me, if I'm honest. I was listening to The Muppets OST and was happily nodding along to Me Party, when suddenly, Man Or Muppet came on and I started to cry. Realising that it wouldn't get any better from there, I put some Morrissey on and just silently sobbed for an hour. That sentence pretty much sums me up, actually. 

It hasn't all been doom and gloom though, as on Tuesday evening we had the most excellent tapas, that Joe had been making whilst I was at uni. He's a good egg. Since then I've just been solidly working on my book proposal. It looks like this so far. 

Good ol' screen caption. It looks better in real life.
So yeah, I'm pretty happy about this hand in. I still need a front cover design, but I've got until 5pm Friday to worry about that. 

So what have you all been up to this week?

  1. Your book sounds amazing, I really want to see more of it! I hope you have a bit more of a cheerful week this week though no crying on the train missy!

  2. Your book looks so cute - did you use my name suggestion?

    And I agree with Kloe, no more crying on the train or I'll come down "south" and throw pies at you whilst eating them.

  3. I do love your book, the colours, design and idea of it is fantastic! If I was your lecturer, I'd give you a First for sure :-) xx
