The last few weeks seem to have gone by in a blur! I've been to several tastings including the Big Fortified Tasting - Marsala and Madeira where an absolute REVELATION (i'll try and blog a little about them this week) and of course the London Wine Fair, which is basically a who's who in wine world. Add to that work, visiting parents, class, trying and mostly failing at studying and my fella's birthday celebrations (for which his best friend came over from his home town in Oz to see him and therefore made me feel like I had to deliver something pretty damn good) and casually trying to renovate my flat and I can't believe it's already May!
The main thing I'm stressing about though is my upcoming exam. It's in 16 DAYS! and I don't feel in the least bit like i've revised enough , so now I'm starting to go into panic mode. For level 3 I felt the same but had 4 days off beforehand, so was able to cram , but no such luck this time.
I have a trip to Bollinger tomorrow (it's sometimes a hard life I know) a press tasting to help out on and a whole host of other life things to do in the meantime. I know I'm not the first or last person to be in this situation and I count myself lucky that these are my 'first world problems' but that really doesn't make me feel any more relaxed about the situation.
Why is it when it comes to revision, that I'm the only one that seems to have to put effort in? I would class myself as a pretty smart girl, but I do have to put time in to get good marks. How is it fair that there always seems to be someone that just glances at the book and have a photographic memory? Is this like the intelligence equivalent of winning the generic lottery and becoming a model or are they just lying to look cool?
I think I should probably finish this blog now before I over-think things, and I have enough to think about right now as it is... like what to pack when there is a thunderstorm predicted with highs of 23 and lows of 11?!
