I'm so bored

Sounds really bad when there is so much shit going on in the world but I am so very bored! I'm sat in the library (well they call it the Informtion Commons, but that's the uni trying to be posh!) again. Last night I was here till 8pm, Monday night I was here until 7 at least, and in the past couple of weeks it's felt like I've lived here.
I think it's been worth it, I have a busy couple of weeks before all my deadlines, so really needed to get organised before then. I think I've managed it,
6000 word dissertation on teh mammalian family tree- check
1800 word essay on a named area of reproductive behaviors- check
Introduction for group talk- check

Why does it feel as if I've missed something, no one else I know is this organised yet, I know why I'm this organised, but it just feels wrong to have done your coursework for 2 weeks before the deadline!
In case you hadn't noticed I live a relatively dull ife, for so long my sole aim has been to get through university and gain a respectable degree. Now it looks as if that is going to happen it feels odd. I'll be starting doing a teacher training course in September but it will be a very different lifestyle to my current one of such self motivated learning. Having said that, I'm bored, I will never use practically any of the information from this year in my future, and I have a lovely £4000 debt to show for it!

Spring is here

I was just walking up from university after a long day in the library (far too much coursework, far too little time!) and it occured to me that spring is here. We've had 3 weeks of sunny, very warm weather but no rain, so all the trees still had no leaves on them. This weekend however it rained, and all the trees are suddenly covered with leaves. Although it's still raining it's a pleasant drizzle, and walking along in the rain was actually pleasant. Winters in the north can be a little unpleasant, when it rains it's usually cold, and very windy, so even umberellas aren't much use!
