Storms make oaks take deeper root.
George Herbert
English clergyman & metaphysical poet (1593 – 1633)

It has been long since I’ve blogged, I do apologise. The madness of being at varsity is just too much, I hardly have time for myself let alone my friends. Things are hectic and not getting any easier it’s like they [my lecturers] want to make sure that when I leave this place with my degree I must have tears of both joy and sorrow… Exams are looming and I’m feeling a bit anxious, I’ve come up with about two plans and I still don’t feel like I’m on top of things but I’ll keep pushing, I’m no eager beaver for nothing, “they don’t call me die hard for nothing”… On a serious note I will leave with what I came to get, what belongs to me, no matter what the costs are, no matter the sleepless nights and the tears… My Bjourn degree will be mine whether they like it or not. And I can honestly say (like Louisa May Alcott) that “I am not afraid of storms, for I am learning how to sail my ship”. Check you later…

Eish my research proposal is killing me, I haven’t had proper sleep in like three days… It’s an interesting mini thesis though and I’ve uncovered quite a great deal of info, my research proposal is: Black South African female playwrights. I wanted to explore this because one day I endeavour to be a playwright and I wanted to find out what the challenges are for upcoming playwrights like myself. But Eish it’s sad how things have not changed… it’s going to take some time for the patriarchal system to change even in the theatrical world.

Anyhow It seems like I’m going to have an all nighter again… But you know what? I’m cool with it, for sleep is for the weak…lol that’s such nonsense but I felt like saying that because that’s the only thing keeping me awake. But this how I’ve coped with varsity. The past three years have been the same old routine. When I’m given a deadline I start early but only finish literally an hour before the deadline. But I guess I can’t be something I’m not. I cope well under pressure and some of my good products have come working under pressure- the best way to get something done is to begin… let me leave you with this quote:

If it weren’t for the last minute, I wouldn’t get anything done.  ~Author Unknown…. check you later
