Having two weeks off for reading week was something that I thought I would enjoy. Of course I have enjoyed not having to get up for a 9am lecture, and being able to go out whenever I want with no worry about what I have going on the next day. However the lack of routine is something that I just get a little bored of. I found myself bored a lot of the time, which explains why my bank account is running a lot lower than normal. Takeout, going out for a 'few drinks', nipping to the shops for some snacks for movie night, ANYTHING to entertain me for 5 minutes. 

All that said, I did have tasks to complete. It's not called reading week for no reason. The label 'reading week' put the fear into me. I don't know what it is, but I just can't sit still and read a book for that long especially at uni where there is distractions for an A* procrastinator around every single corner. But I managed to get through it I suppose. To be honest, I did enjoy watching the documentaries and I especially enjoyed reading 'Hegarty on Creativity- There are No Rules' and I think that was because it wasn't an intense read. I think, what it is that puts me off reading, is the idea that you don't know how long you are going to have to read for. With a documentary, you put it on and you know its on for an hour and a half, followed by half an hour writing a blog post. With reading, for me anyway, it can literally take DAYS because I just get so distracted. 

Despite all of this, I did learn a lot from the previous two weeks, funnily enough, not just about books and fashion, but about how I'm going to move forward with this new project with a completely different mind set.
