Unfortunate

Warning: This post was published more than 12 years ago.

I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Many thanks for your understanding.

For the first time since coming to university, I have missed a lecture due to oversleeping. My alarm clock did go off, but I managed to sleep through it, and didn’t awaken until about 10.30 – an hour and a half too late for my lecture.

Luckily, I’ve only missed Histology, which I don’t particularly enjoy anyway. I’ve already printed the notes off the computer system, so it’s not a problem. Well, it is a problem I suppose because it now means I have to write notes on the notes from textbooks, instead of just having everything explained to me while I sit there scribbling it down, but other than that it’s not really a problem.

Not that I’m going to do it again. I’ll have to get someone to wake me up in exam week, I think, in case this happens again.

To summarise: Oops.
