On the 9th of February, I'm going to the Isle of Arran in Scotland for five days for a Geology field trip.
It's going to take a day to drive out there and a day to drive back so, all in all, I'll be away from my home town for a week. I'm not looking forward to waking up at 5 am to get to college and leaving at 6 am and then driving for twelve hours.
On the positive side, I still have to read the latest installment in the 'A Song of Ice and Fire' (Better known as 'Game of Thrones') and I'll have plenty of time for that on the coach. I do know the 'big twist' at the end though, no thanks to the internet. I wasn't even looking
for it, it just popped up in 'trending' on facebook, geez.
Plus, I have my little geology squad. They're a good bunch and we're always having a laugh in lesson (and getting minimal work done, or so it would seem because I have no idea how to do any of the things required for our field work.
) One of them said he'd bring cards against humanity so we can play it in what little free time we have when we get there!
Overall, this year's gone really fast. I know it's not over yet but February half term is typically the time students at my college start their revision and then I'll be revising for two months straight as nearly all of my exams are in May!
WHERE DID THE TIME GO??
On a last note, having decided I'm no longer going to pursue a career in art, I'm dropping it at the end of this year. However, I don't want to abandon art as it's an integral part of who I am. (cringecringecringe.) No, but seriously, I'd like to carry on with it as a hobby so I'm going to really try to post art here, both digital and traditional. I really really do want to get better.
And that's all. Hope you're well, whoever is reading this. (If you put any Game of Thrones spoilers in the comments, I'll fucking kill you.)
