Finished my war of attrition for this essay, having just finished writing it tonight. I didn't really expect to finish it today, but after i got back from soccer i was just on a roll and wrote the last 500 words relatively quickly, references and all.
Speaking of soccer today: the trials for the new season continued, with us playing a team called The Squirrels, which actually contains one of Nick's uni lecturers. It was a very tight game, which was very defensive. It was 0-0 after half time, and i broke the deadlock and scored with about 6 or so minutes to go in the game. We controlled the game till the last 30 seconds, when a person (who shall remain nameless to protect their reputation, and also for no defamation suits against me) gifted the opposing team the ball right in front of our goal, to which they appropriately scored. 1-1 it finished.
To be fair, said person was playing really well up until that moment. I had the first crap game i've had in a long time. Although i scored, my performance today was pretty poor. I blame it on the week off, because it is a convenient scape-goat.
Last night Pope John Paul II died. Catholic or not, he was truly a remarkable man. This is usually one of those once to thrice in a lifetime occasions where we will witness the election of a new Pope. Although i am definitely not a Catholic, i still find the whole process intriguing.
Got work tomorrow, and uni starting up again this week.
