Been a pretty good day, all things considered. Went round to Austin D'Arcy, to get the deposits back from our old flat, and we got all the money back - bonus!

Interesting thing about college - it actually reduces my internet access. When I was in the office, I could take 2 minutes to read any emails that came in. When I'm in lectures, I don't have access to a computer, and my mobile is switched off, so I might go 4 hours at a time in isolation. The horror!

Hmm, ought to start reading through textbooks at some point...
