The next 6 months are going to be harsh...

I've just finished my collections*, and it wasn't the best, I guess. I think I did ok on 2 questions, but the last question, which actually isn't all that hard, simply showed up my lack of revision. I definitely won't be getting more than 55 for that one(and this is me being optimistic, I suspect it might dip into the 40s). And unfortunately, it's the tutor who's the least impressed with me - I managed to earn a ticking off from her last term - who'll be marking it.

And I think all my exam-taking muscles are rusty. This is the first test I've sat for in over 1 1/4 years (the structure of my course means that Finals** are everything, and I do mean everything), and by the second hour I was already tired. To think, I once used to be able to do 6 hours in the exam hall!

Seriously though, I cannot see how I will be able to blog with any sort of regularity for the next 6 months or so. I already feel like I'm barely coping as it stands. The best I can do, and even this might be stretching it, is once a week. So hmmm...I thought I could do something systematic. I have this Christianity and the Arts series (which will be very long) that I was thinking of doing, but requires lots of drafting first, or maybe I was thinking of just posting some book reviews of the books on my bookshelf (I'm thinking only Christian ones for now). Or something else. What do you think?

* more arcane Oxford jargon, incomprehensible to any outsider, with more than one meaning, in this case, mock exams of a sort which don't count for anything, but which terrify first years and bore 2nd and 3rd years who are more worldly-wise.

** niggly little exams designed to drive you insane.

For me, anything to do with how you're keeping is most desirable. Book reviews? They're okay lah.

here's an idea. set aside one day, and i mean just one day, to write one very long blog article. then split it into 8 parts. then post one part each week. that will keep us coming back for more, and we know when to check your blog for an update. just an idea of course.

Wynn's idea sounds great! This is the reverse of taking exams in which you spend 3 years (allegedly) accumulating knowledge that is to be "posted" on the exam "blog" over a course of a few days.
