“I’m sorry mum and dad but this year I can’t come home as often as I did last year. I’m super busy with work and I need to utilise my weekends. You can come visit of course, but I don’t think I’m going to properly come home until Christmas.”
I love my parents and all of that came from a place of genuine truth – I’ve never been this busy at Uni before and travelling between Bristol and London did take up a chunk of my time last year. My parents were entirely cool and understanding with it, I didn’t have the time for the coach journeys and the interrupted weekends.
And then I ended up on coaches from Bristol to London 3 out of 4 of the November weekends.
It wasn’t entirely out of choice – I didn’t just decide to visit my family almost every weekend of November (Although I’m sure both them and I would have loved if I had). The first was because I had a bit of an issue that only family could resolve, the second was last weekend attending conventions in London as a result of my internship, and the third is this weekend due to a blogging event I’m attending Thursday night (More to come on that soon…). This month, I apparently have lived on coaches, so I figured as a newly trained coach expert I’d give you some advice on some of the best things to do on a coach…
Sleep? (You wish)
Yes, I know this used to be your favourite thing to do on the coach and you actually slept better on coaches than in your bed (I have a lot of sleep problems, can you tell?) but I’m sorry Jas you don’t have time for that anymore. Sleep is for people who don’t have a million things to do 24/7 and you are just not one of those people. Better luck next time, kiddo.
Start writing your Shakespeare Essay…
Okay so, it’s not due for 2 weeks and you don’t necessarily have to start writing it on the coach, but guess who has plans almost every hour of everyday for the next 2 weeks?Yes, you ya lucky girl! So, while you have a couple of hours of sitting why not get started early on your essay, by the time deadline week rolls around I guarantee you, you’ll be too busy to focus on it.
Update your CV…
Trying to find new ways to procrastinate? Your CV hasn’t been updated since a month ago when you took on that new fancy thing that you technically don’t have time to balance but are going to any! Take a break from your essay and tinker around with your CV so you can at least pretend that you have your life together!
Read a book…
Oh, you thought I meant any book? No honey, you do a course that involves English Literature – you’re always behind on reading, it’s just a rule of the course. Whack open that copy of ‘A Winter’s Tale’ and embrace yourself in the world of William Shakespeare… Fun.
Schedule your blog posts for the month…
Not only do you have essay deadlines and extra reading and a job on the paper and an internship on the side, you also have a blog that you committed to uploading on 3 times a week! Remember how you have no time this month? Well you better make time for that. While you’re sitting around you may as well plan and schedule as much as you can in advance, later you will thank you for it (If she has time… Did she mention she’s very busy?)
Switch on your music so you can get started on all those tasks…
And then get caught up in the music and stare vacantly out the window while Taylor sings all about her love story… Who needed to get all that work done? You have time! Right?
Hope you guys enjoyed this, I felt like writing something a little sarcastic while I was procrastinating from writing my Shakespeare essay on the coach (Yes, there were some moments of truth in the piece haha). What do you guys do on coaches? I’m curious.
Lots of love,
