i finished the last of my third-year psychology and linguistics exams two weeks ago, and have been messing around with admin and work and reading since. It will still be some time before Unisa publish the results, and there were a few exams about which i was not supremely confident, so i’m not going to talk just yet about where on the wall to hang my BA.  i really struggled to focus this time around.  This year’s studies have felt a bit more of an ordeal than the past few years’.  i guess part of the reason has been the feeling that several years’ studying were about to come to an end and that end couldn’t come soon enough.  It’s been quite an anticlimax. But now i’m glad it’s over :)

Chronicle Number Next 2004

April 14, 2004

Hey guys

Well, Easter is behind us, and the elections past. The once-more lit-up cross up at the top of the Papegaaiberg mountain just north-west of my flat and good music provide some inspiration for catching up with y’all again…

So much has happened this past year that it makes me dizzy to contemplate writing at length, so here are some of the headlines and highlights since Easter last year (full news bulletin at eight…)  Read the rest of this entry »
