It’s been a month now since semester break started and I feel like drowning. I have until Tuesday evening to finish writing an essay about meat consumption (1-2 pages) as well as the rest of my seminar paper (around 4-5 pages) and to hand in both things as well as to return all books to the uni library. There are several mails/letters I still need to write in between, city plans and maps to be printed out, decisions made about where I’d like to go and what I’m interested in seeing on the trip as well as getting my suitcase packed to begin with. The idea of being in Sweden by this time next week is somehow both frightening and exciting at this point, unreal. I should be writing my paper right now because it determines whether I pass the whole module medieval history or not but the words just don’t come and time is running out.
