Sur le pont d'Avignon

On y danse!

I got back from France at lunchtime today after having gone to le Provence to visit Kirsti. Saw a lot of stuff, including a Roman theatre - one of only 3 with still existing complete stage walls in the whole Empire, and the only one in Europe - and I fulfilled my childhood dream of dancing on the bridge of Avignon (round and round).
This is me at the theatre in Orange, once we'd climbed alllllllll the seats/steps to the very top.

And this is me on the pont d'Avignon! With the Palais des Papes in the background.

Also, I did get my 2:1! Yay. Just :P

In a dark, dark town...

I haven't written on here in ages, oops. Bad blogger.

On Friday, at approximately noon, I get my degree classification. I am not looking forward to this. Yes it will mean the end of my university career - something I have mixed feelings about - and it also means I will finally have a degree, but I am scared about the result. I did not study enough for my exams (what's new?) and there is absolutely nothing I can do about this now. In particular I'm concerned about the effect that my awful Media Law exam will have on my overall results. The exam was partly okay and partly horrendous and I am petrified that this will have a devestating effect on my classification. I have tried out various scenarios on my calculator, and I think I won't be getting a 3rd (thank goodness) because I'd need to really fuck up and get a 37% average from this year for that to have happened (and I really hope Media wasn't so bad that that has happened!). But in order to get a 2:1 (minimum of 60% average over both years) I need 58.666% average from fourth year. Now, I think Gender & Justice went alright, and I hope my dissertation's good, but I have no idea about Media! I really want a 2:1!

Thinking about it actually makes me feel sick. So I should stop thinking about it, right?
