The weekend's here, although the only way I can tell is because other people are now as free as I am most of the week for two days.

As of today I am no longer officially a student. Feelsweirdman. By this date on each of the last four years I was moved out of Ashford, and away to Leicester and then Brighton. Now I'm doomed to stay here until I can find a well paying job.
I popped down to Brighton yesterday to hand back in my library books, a further piece of evidence to strip me of my student status. Now I'm going to struggle to access journals online and justify doing nothing all day. Spent just over three and a half hours on trains to spend one minute in the library to put the books on the conveyor belt.

Feels pretty weird, the idea of not being taught anything anymore (for the time being, at least). Unlike a lot of people I've thoroughly enjoyed my education, and really don't understand people who complain that school is boring or university is for geeks (the latter may be slightly out of date given the numbers heading to universities over the last decade). Maybe one day I'll go back, and do that PhD that I've pondered over, but that day will only come once I can afford the money to pay for the course. At the current (and justified, in my opinion) rate, that could be a lot of money!

Anywhoo, as I said earlier, it's Friday, Friday evening at that, so I'd best go get myself sorted out.

Catch. You. Later.
