Meanwhile, I've been enjoying - translation: stressing - about university. I am, most would tell me, attempting to read far more than is necessary. This is probably true. I suppose, though, that I have found myself in a deeper end than I expected to be at this point in time and it's a bit daunting right now. I'm sure I'll get past these initial jitters, especially once I have some good study habits down. At the moment, I'm trying to find what works for me, especially as my somewhat slack methods from high school are certainly undesirable now. Not knowing quite what standard is expected of me has caused me some concern as I have no idea if my work is up to a high enough standard (which shouldn't be construed to mean that I'm not trying my hardest; rather, that I'm my own worst critic), but the library rather delightfully has copies of old exams online and that's helped to put my mind at rest. Maybe there are examples somewhere of old essays that rated particularly well too.
If there is one thing I regret from the last few days, it is that I did not watch the final match of the one day series between Australia and South Africa. I think it's evident to anyone with a grasp of cricket that it was the greatest one day international in history and likely to hold that status for quite some time to come. I can only hope that it is released on DVD! Maybe I should search on torrent sites to see if anyone's uploaded the full game. I find the result somewhat ironic considering that a couple of months ago, I remember a couple of interviews where members of the Australian team were expressing their desire to be the first team to score 400 runs in an ODI. Well, yeah, they did, but I doubt they expected the second team to do so to do it in the very same game! I think the only disappointing aspect of this game for me is how quickly New Zealand's world record successful run chase was beaten, but considering the apparent quality of the cricket, I can't complain. I still can't get over the fact that 873 runs were scored in a single ODI fixture.
I think that's about it from me for now. Have a good one, folks.
