The Sisters of Perpetual Education

I have finally submitted my final assessment for this semester and Uni is over (well, at least until July/August when the grind recommences). See how I use words like grind to describe my life at uni, when in reality, grind is possibly the least suitable adjective I could find (my legal team have just advised me that I mean metaphor - "it's a metaphor Laziest", they said, "a metaphor not an adjective". Thanks guys.). I mean, I really don't do a great deal. I write my essays the weekend before they are due. I fabricate half my footnotes. I don't put in any more effort than is required to get a five. But enough of this pointless babble. On to more important things.

I emailed the Arts Faculty last week for a "Graduation Check" (which is where someone with an Arts Degree looks at your academic record and checks that you are due to graduate when expected - because, Lord knows, the Arts students can't be trusted to work it out for themselves. Actually, that's true. Venerable thought he had to do a subject summer semester last year to graduate - and he didn't, he was ok to graduate in November). But back to the facts as we know them. Providing I pass two subjects this semester and pass two subjects next semester, I will graduate in November.

I'm sure that prospective employers will be positively falling over each other to offer me jet-setting jobs with huge financial benefits. Or maybe not. So, I guess I'll be starting a post-grad certificate in February as planned. Am I an honourary Sister of Perpetual Education yet?

Congrats on finishing up the semester!

The "Graduation Check" sounds like something you'd do in a role-playing game, involving many-sided dice.

Would a true Sister of Perpetual Education know that "grind" isn't an adjective? Perhaps. Perhaps not. Let's role the ten-sided die to find out...

Ouch! Ten-sided die said: "It stopped being cool to correct people's grammar in the early 1600's, and even then it was only cool in the posh suburbs of Stratford-upon-Avon." I offer sincere apologizes.

Are you sure ten-sided dice didn't just say "details-schmetails"?

You'll be pleased to know that John Grisham just emailed me - he wants to buy the phrase "The Graduation Check" as the title of his next book.

it's better to be a Sister of Perpetual Education than a Sister of Perpetual Chastity

If you're starting post-grad, does this mean we'll eventualy have to start calling you Dr. Laziest Girl?

Nah - that would mean I'd have to change the title of the blog to "Most Industrius of Girls". And, frankly, I can't be bothered.
