Something Different

(Let's just go ahead and dive straight into this ignoring the fact that I haven't posted in nearly two months after saying that I was going to get my act together with the whole blogging thing...)

So for those of you who don't know, I'm currently an English student at the University of Exeter. GROUND RULES:
  • Only fellow English students can take the piss out of my degree.
  • Don't ask me what I'm going to do after university. I don't know. 
  • Don't remind me that jobs are scarce and that employment rates for English graduates are low. I am aware of my fate.
I'm coming to the end of my first year now; I've submitted all of my final assignments, I have no more lectures and all that separates me from four months of freedom are my exams that start in nearly a week. What do you mean I'm only writing this to procrastinate revision? I'm sure I don't know what you're talking about.


Anyway, one of the modules I took last term was an 'Introduction to Creative Writing'. I'm still not entirely sure what possessed me to consider such a module considering I'd never written creatively before, but alas I took it, survived it and actually enjoyed it. Today I received feedback for what I submitted at the end of last term and thought I'd share a poem I wrote as part of a '30 lines of original poetry' assignment. After being inspired by one of my idols Virginia Woolf and the song 'Never Let Me Go' by Florence + The Machine, this was my final product after a lot of redrafting!


I know this is a bit different from what I've posted before, but I'm personally quite proud of it and I hope you guys like it too. I might try and keep up the whole creative writing thing over summer and if I do I'll be sure to share the stuff that's (hopefully) half decent on here. Thanks for reading and hopefully it won't be too long before I post again! (See you all in like a year lol)
