*Sigh*

So it's been an incredibly busy week and I'm completely exhausted. Today is supposed to be my day off.

My timetable isn't that bad, it's just the amount of reading and assignments I have is a little bit more than I'm used to.
I'm panicking a little bit because I have a 15 minute presentation to conduct infront of 40 students in November sometime. If there's one thing I hate, it's giving presentations. Especially infront of people I don't know. Especially students. Give me a bunch of adults who are respectful, won't judge you, and are actually interested in what you have to say and I'll breeze through it. But students...*shudders*
*Puts to back of mind*

More pressingly I took my car for its MOT. Ultimately that was a disaster. For starters, there are 3 garages right next to each other that all do a service and MOT. I was supposed to take my car to the one in the middle (the cheapest), but I accidentally took it to the specialist VW dealer (most expensive). PAH. Then I get the results back a few hours later.

FAIL. FAIL. FAIL. FAIL. FAIL.
£900 of fail.
My car is seventeen years old. It's just not worth it.
So I checked through all of the supposed "issues". Turns out they tried charging me over £100 for the parts of the handbrake I had fixed the other week! Unbelievable. Just because I'm a young woman. I think they were a little bit shocked when I told them there was a mistake. Priceless faces. Funnily enough, the man suddenly decided that it was only "advisory" and not necessary. Bastardos.
I went to KwikFit instead, they can do it for just over £500, which still isn't worth it, but yano. Flora's my babe :) I have the very tough decision of keeping or scrapping her now :'(

Keeping me sane and entertained this week has definitely been Ray William Johnsons YouTube channel and Snapple. Link is in the sidebar to RWJ, you should definitely check him out - he reviews viral videos twice a week and is extremely funny. And Snapple is awesomely yummy. If you haven't tried some you should!!
