Just realised I forgot to post my regular chart of the year! As regular readers will know, I give every day of the year a specific grade, then take each month’s average to chart the ebb and flow of my life across the year. This is the chart 2014 made:
It’s pretty much as I expected. My Dad’s death in mid January explains the downward curve at the beginning, with February being the first month in negative figures since 2011, while May as ever proved unenjoyable for students everywhere. The latter half of the year was fairly steady though noticeably a bit below where previous years have been.
A friend and I have recently begun a weekly podcast called ‘The Entellectuals’ (get it?). We’re hoping to cover a variety of different topics depending on what we’re currently thinking about, or possibly studying in our courses. Each episode has a general discussion followed by an argument from either one of us, then it concludes with a more light-hearted element. If this interests you, check out the first episode in which we discuss alcohol, students, Interstellar and the nature of artistic value.
We have been having some technical issues, unfortunately. Despite all the online guides saying podcasts are easy to make, it turns out they’re anything but that. There have been so many problems getting the podcast onto an Itunes feed, something we still haven’t succeeded at doing. Soundcloud will apparently have to do for now.
