Retrospectively forward-looking

So. Next week school starts again. Lectures and whatnot.

I had so many plans for the summer. I seem to have spent most of it feeling tired and dazed, staring at the rain, and generally not doing all the things I'd hoped. It's felt a little like I spent 4 days at work (yes, 2, 2.5 hours of travelling to and from work have probably added to this), then spent Friday in a total daze, hopefully catching up on a little washing and washing up and gardening, and then the weekend proper dealing with cricket or social stuff.


Still. There you go. I've not really started my dissertation (other than doing some thinking), I've not played with any of the software ideas I wanted to. I have dreamt up some... ambitious... garden plans. And got a bit of a grip on what I want to do next.  

Main aims for the next 6 months? Enjoy the opportunities for sitting on the sofa in front of the fire with my gorgeous girlfriend. Try and keep up with the uni work to avoid crunch periods (yeah right!). Find a new job. And start those garden plans. Keep it all simple and enjoy it, and try not to get hung up on the weather and the lack of light.

Well, gotta have something to aim for.
