Edit: It's going to have to be a different day because I just found out that's a bank holiday so the place won't be quiet after all. Also, I genuinely don't understand why Birmingham (2 hours 45 mins) is a perfectly acceptable place to go just to eat lunch, but a day trip to alton towers (3 hours 15 minutes) is considered too much effort.
I'm planning a trip to Alton Towers on ***. Anyone who wants to come along is welcome to join me.
In other news, this morning I handed my dissertation in for binding. I'd like to report that I'm feeling giddy and exhilarated, but all I can manage is crushing anxiety about the group project I'm starting tomorrow.
