Let's talk bandwidth
Our 10 gb bandwidth package ran out on Tuesday evening.
Normally I get irritated when that happens but this time I thought, "perfect!" because I needed to study anyway and so I decided not to buy a bandwidth booster til after my exam.
As I'm blogging, you've deduced that my exam is over :) and the world is slightly brighter!
Really, I feel so clever for not having internet for most of two days. I used some of my phone's data but I'm super-stingy with my phone's usage (I use just 1.2 GB a month - that's it!) so I actually studied, for real, old-school like back in the day.
I was thinking yesterday that I would not have been a very good student if I'd had the internet way back when.
How do people do it these days?
Enough of my old-lady ways.
Right, the exam was less frightening than I thought BUT that's not saying anything. The questions are designed to trick you so we'll see. I finished a 2-hour paper in an hour but I forced myself to check every answer again... which took up another 15 minutes.
And then I was out of there!
I may or may not let you know my results in a few weeks' time.
And now I'm reading a fantastic book. This one.
I'm 60% through in 1.5 days (benefits to not having internet! but it is a fantastic book and her style is so relatable).
I have big plans to finish this tonight so I can start on my Marian Keyes tomorrow. No joke - I've written "Marian Keyes book" like it's an event on my calendar for Saturday. I will be GLUED to my chair.
So what have you been up to the last few days?
I've been COOLER (thank God for rain, seriously!) because just when I thought I'd combust, blessed rain :)
