revision really does drive you crazy
Ok, earlier I did Plutarch and Xenophon. I’ve just done Plato and Euripides. I’m now about to cover Aeschines. I then plan to do Ovid. Still need to read through the Priapic poems, and the two versions of the Sabine women story. And then if I’ve got time, I might skim over Terence and Seneca. Then I’ve got to read some more scholarship. So close to the end but still so much to do!

This evening I revised all the early Greek poets (Alcaeus, Anacreon, Sappho, Mimnermus, Ibycus, Semonides, Archilochus etc.), Homer, Hesiod, Apollodorus and I started Xenophon and Plutarch. Then I got really sleepy. Tomorrow I have to cover Plato, Ovid, Euripides, the Priapus poems, the Sabine women (both Ovid and Livy’s versions), Against Timarchus, possibly Terence, and possibly Seneca. I also need to do even more secondary reading, including the massive Skinner book, and think about possible essay topics that might come up. Lots to do!
The revision/exam period is such a strange time. The only time I leave my house is to go to exams. I really need to shower but I don’t have the time and it’s not like I’m going out anyway. My whole world is exams. Day in, day out, revision revision revision. But, in light of thinking positively, it will be over in a few days! Just need to keep going (so so tired!)
