Tree Three

A quick entry, mostly just to upload a picture of the completed third tree of my topiary picture. Only one more to go now! (Unfortunately, it’s the hardest one, with loads of fiddly fractionals. I’ve been kind of dreading getting to this point…)

Most of my free time over the last week or so has been taken up with study (although obviously I have done a bit of cross-stitch from time to time, when I needed a break to stare at something mindless on TV for a while). I’ll be so glad when I get this exam out the way. I am SO sick of studying at the moment. I always get like this around this time of year, when it’s all so grey and depressing, and work is busy, and I just don’t feel like I’ve got the time or the energy to put into yet another exam. Every June I vow that next year I’ll have a break from study, but of course, by December everything will be sunny again, I’ll be all enthusiastic about life and have forgotten this mid-winter depression feeling, and I’ll be eagerly signing up for another couple of papers… (I was talking about this with a friend the other day, and she said she has the same problem – she tends to volunteer for all sorts of things in December, when she’s feeling all relaxed and end-of-yeary and full of energy, and she always regrets it when winter hits and she’s suddenly snowed under with responsibilities and no energy to deal with them. Useful life lesson that – if you want someone to volunteer for something, ask them in December.)

Currently reading (apart from my textbook): Falling Leaves by Adeline Yen Mah

  1. RYC: LOL! Maybe I should put a "Loud Music Alert" warning in the subject header for my entries from now on.

    Hope you get relief from your studies soon, and the exam goes well. ((Hugs))
