O-week has been inching slowly forward, characterised by exhaustion, confusion, thirst and very early mornings. After attending numerous introductory lectures, I seem to have decided what to do. Tomorrow I will be registering myself for Journalism and Media Studies, English, Economics, History and Sociology. This decision was reached after many, many hours of hair-pulling interspersed with bouts of blind panic with an undercurrent of despair.
Your life will always be problematic if you're too curious. I was not only torn into a few pieces by my subject choices, I was sssshredded. Politics, Psychology, Politics, Philosophy and Anthropology had to be sadly waved goodbye to were I to continue in my Journalism degree at Rhodes.
Benjamin is doing well (albeit exhausted) and seems to have decided on Philosophy, Psychology, Sociology and History for his first year subjects. I think Philosophy is going to be his favourite subject.
I think I'll take a cushion, a blanket and JD Salinger out for a relaxing afternoon on the lawns in a moment. Excuse me...
