Lectures started properly yesterday and I've already thrown myself into my work. I think I've probably done more in the last two days than I did over the entire two-and-a-half years when I was at Uni last time. Which can only be a good thing.
One thing I've done is get myself a diary. I've written in every lecture and seminar I need to attend for the year with notes about what preparation I need to do for each, along with every piece of work I need to hand in over the year and reminders two weeks before they're due. If I stick to using it I don't really see how I can fuck this up.
I've also decided that I'm going to carry this organisation over into my writing; I'm going to devote 2 hours a day to being offline and just writing, with the aim of getting at least 1500 new words down. That's easily do-able if I stick to it. We'll see how it goes.
Other than that, not much to report. We've been studying haiku today, and writing some. I thought I'd share one (even if it's pretty rubbish). Here you go;
