i love my bed
I'm updating this from my bed, at home. I luff my bed. I never realised how horrible my uni bed was actually.. its hard and nasty. I haven't slept well there over the last few nights - disrupted, cold sleep.
I'm glad to be away from Nathan, Katie and Jonathon. Me and Joe have formed a major alliance - we are united against the chavs. We're ace :) I was really upset Sunday after I went back to the flat. They all knew I was in, but didn't invite me to the pub and declared they were leaving very very loudly outside my door. K, N & J left. Joe knocked on my door to see if he was ok, he came back about 30 mins later to me crying on the way to the kitchen. How pathetic, hey? Its like primary school, secondary school and college all over again. Crying because people are ignoring me. Crying because people dislike me for no reason (other than not sticking up for them when these 'rumours' [which are true.. not lies..] were said [i'm not gonna lie and pretend i care]).
Anyways, Joe is ace. Jamie felt really really bad because he didn't know I was back. He texted me asking to go into town with him Monday, and I said I would. We had so much fun. Lunch, town, shopping, taxi, labeling food, talking, giggling, League of Gentleman live, then he bought me some tea. He really cheered me up. He phoned me after my exam to see how it went, and popped around to come say goodbye to me. Nathan was crying because I'm spending so much time with Jamie (bwahahahaha). Jamie also revealed that he sometimes thinks Nathan is good looking, but most of the time he thinks hes minging. The few times he thinkings he is good looking, he ruins it by picking his nose - so Nathan doesn't stand a chance with Jamie :D
Why am I so pleased about that? That makes me evil doesn't it? Nathan is a twat though.
Which reminds me. After my crying session, I went to make some pasta (I was planning on having a pasta bake - mmmmm!!!). When I went to my big pan, where Nathan had scrapped all the paint off from mashing potatoes, it had gone rusty all the way through. So i wasn't too happy about that. I've asked him to buy me a new one, or give me the money, which may seem a bit harsh but it is his fault really. And if i did it to his pan, I would willingly replace it, even though I don't really like it.
So yeah, my exam!
I can't exactly remember the exact wording of the questions, but the first question I answered was something like Does Chaucer assert the importance of masculine values throughout 'The Knight's Tale?'
I saw this question and thought FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK! For I only really know stuff about chivalry and courtly love when it comes to the knights tale. Fortunately, I figured courtly love and chivarly did kind of relate to masculinity - courtly love illustrates masculine values not that important for the knights' love for Emelye is central to the plot. Then something about male bonds for chivarly. I kind of got away with that.
Finished that very fast, in about 45mins which was worrying, I was wondering what I was going to do with the rest of my time.
Nervously turned over the page and scanned until it read Section B: Renaissance texts. The very last question.. I nearly weed myself.
Discuss how gender roles in two or more Renissance texts redefine constructed cultural expectations
I knew the answer to this using Othello off by heart. Because i'm ace.
And I could write just as much about The Dutchess of Malfi and even improvised and came up with a good point even if i do say so myself - the playwrite gives the Dutchess a non-female related role (artistocracy, money, power etc) to illustrate the importance of the stereotypes - her power leads to her downfall, unhappiness (for not being about to chose her husband for she wishes to marry beneath her) and death. Therefore 'Am I still thy Dutchess?' questions her identity and suggests her despair of not being like the birds who are 'free to choose their own mates.'
Quietly confident :) *fingers crossed*
I get my results on the 24th Feb. I will be glad as long as its above 40 really - because thats a pass. Obviously, 60s would be lush (2.1/first) but i doubt thats gonna happen.
My next semester rocks. I don't have lectures for Theory, I therefore only have one module which requires lectures! Nineteenth century literature, which i'm kinda looking forward to actually.
So yeah. Tomorrow means starting my essay... uuugh!
