I'm so not prepared for lectures to start again next week.
My lectures this semester are all morning ones, which is annoying. I'd prefer afternoon ones because then if I had a bad night I could sleep in. At the moment I'm getting to sleep somewhere between 2am and 5am and sleeping for 9 hours which seems to work okay. If I get up earlier I'm tired and hurty all day and still end up going to sleep at the same time anyway.
I'm trying to think laterally to find a way to make things easier for myself. Would it be unreasonable to ask my department to videotape my lectures? That way I could sleep in if I needed to, and still attend lab classes and tutorials (which are in the afternoons).
In related news I heard from the Disability and Dyslexia Support Service at uni. I'm applying for Disabled Student's Allowance which will basically pay for any additional costs I have that other students don't, for stuff I will need for my course. Like a laptop and an ergonomic desk and chair, and all the textbooks I'll ever use so I don't have to lug them home from the library and hurt my shoulders/back, and maybe some funky software to help me sort my notes and essays out.
Anyway, it turns out I haven't actually sent the forms in yet. I'd forgotten I hadn't done it, and was starting to get worried that I hadn't heard from the assessment centre (they'll assess me to see what help I actually need). Shows how much attention I've been paying. Stupid brain.
Also I've been trying to catch up and I am so bored of stats and SPSS. Yawn.
