Could it possibly be week 7 already?!

I normally have a fairly good idea of what's going on, what date it is, basic things like that, but when my lecturer announced yesterday that this is week 7 it took me totally by surprise. The weeks are flying past and before we know it we're going to be up on top of exams again! I had a fairly quiet start to semester 2. I didn't have many assignments and not a huge work load. However that was just the calm before the storm because suddenly I've been bombarded with essays and projects that have fast approaching deadlines. But there's no need to freak out (or so I'm telling myself) because if it has to get done, it'll get done. Just remember to plan your time carefully and try not to procrastinate too much. That was really difficult for me semester 2 of last year I remember. My friends and I drank a lot of tea and ate a lot of biscuits while essays went unfinished. It was great at the time, but staying up half the night trying to meet deadlines gets old pretty quickly. Don't let that be you! 

One last thing - there's a national student survey at the moment which first year undergrads (that's ye!) can do. It's aiming to "enhance the student experience" (they're giving out really cool free pens around the college at the moment for it, keep an eye out!) Visit studentsurvey.ie to fill it out. It's an annual thing - I did it last year and it's very simple and only takes a few minutes. Obviously you don't have to do it! I just thought I'd let ye know it's available! (Ye may have missed the big sign for it in the library....)

Hope ye're enjoying the (kinda) nice weather (here today, gone tomorrow!)

Ciao (guess who's a language student...) :)
