This week so far…

has been sooo tiring! It’s only Tuesday night and I am dead on my feet.

Yesterday I had my second lecture for Horror and I loved it and today was my second lecture for Documentary.

I feel like I am doing loads of work in the lectures and seminars this semester which is really good 😀

Going to begin thinking about and researching for one of my assignments tomorrow because I have the day off. Hopefully I can get started on it tomorrow night as it is only a Critical Appraisal in response to a written article and they don’t usually take as much research as other essays. SO I should be easing my way into the work load because later on in the semester it is going to be hectic!!

Best get one out of the way 😀

The first week of a new semester!

Well it’s just been the first week back at uni for this semester and I have to say it has been the best so far! I’ve had a really good time.

But before I tell you this I shall tell you what happened when I moved back last Sunday… Well me and my mum set off from Blackpool (about an hours drive away) in the car at about 1ish and drove all the way to Ormskirk, because my mum’s lovely she offered to buy me a little bit of shopping so we went to the Morrisons in town. When we got out of the car we noticed that one of the tires on her car was going flat… So, because neither of us have ever changed a car tyre before we rang my dad (who was back in Blackpool) and he decided to drive all the way to Ormskirk to change it for us because my mum didn’t have her AA card :'(

By the time my dad had changed the tyre and I actually got back to the house it was about 5ish and I was super cold and tired. But, that was an eventful couple of hours. So maybe a Top Tip could be: Check your vehicle for any dodgy things, remember your AA (or whatever company your with) card is with you; just in case, maybe have someone who can change a tyre with you on the journey (if you’re super paranoid!) oh and of course, make sure your car has a spare tyre!

So back to why this week was AWESOME!

I am currently studying 4 modules per semester. 2 carry on from last and 2 start new this semester.

Last semester I did Film Genre and Film Realism (both of those carry on this semester) and I did Film Authorship and Film Animation (I absolutely loved the animation module and kinda wish that it was a year long module, but I am however thinking about doing something on animation for my dissertation next year.)

Now the two new modules that I am doing are: Film Censorship and Film Identity and Representation.

SO, this week I went to lectures and a lot of them were just basic introductions to what we are going to be studying so:

Film Genre : I am going to be spending the semester studying Horror, yay! I love horror 😀

Film Realism : is going to be focusing on Documentary okay, not so exciting but still should be good.

Film Censorship : I am really excited for this one, I am going to be studying lots of probably disturbing and disgusting stuff, but it will be really interesting finding out about how films are censored and what some filmmakers actually put in there films and the extremes that they go to!

Identity and Representation : I will be looking at Feminism, Lesbian, Gay, Transsexual and Black cinema. Which I know is going to be really interesting and it’s going to be different that just looking at cinema as a whole, it’s going to be really focused. I’m looking forward to it 😀

So that’s my modules, sounds really good right!? Yay.

Also this week me and 2 of my house mates tried to make a rainbow cake but all the colour disappeared, we’re really confused about why and how…

Oh, and I’ve bought The Hunger Games trilogy!! 😀 On the first book at the minute. It’s good!

So after the Christmas break…

It’s now that time again to start thinking about moving back to Ormskirk.

I live with 4 of my friends and another boy that lived in the house last year. I wish that we hadn’t moved into that house because he is very very selfish. He doesn’t clean up after himself and he leaves the kitchen in a mess. He uses all of our pots pans and plates and doesn’t wash them! He leaves his dirty plates (well our plates!) in his room, seriously last time he brought down like 15 plates, he left them on the side and went home for the weekend… Which is not very nice. So it’s annoying to find out from one of my housemates who moved back yesterday that he has smashed one of my lovely plates… They were expensive :'( they had hearts and stars on them and I loved them lots! (I know it sounds pathetic but now my cutlery set is uneven, I have 2 of everything apart from my plates, haha)

SO Top Tip: Seriously consider who you are going to be living with after first year!

That has put me in a bad mood before even going back…

We’ve also recieved a gas and electric bill that seems to be over priced…  I HATE BILLS! WE’RE STUDENTS AND WE’RE POOR! LEAVE US ALONE! Haha as if….lol

So how good is this start of the new semester!!
