I’ve just applied for a job because I am sick and tired of not having any money, plus I’m probably going to be bored for a lot of summer… As well as being sick of my mum and dad annoying me saying I need to get a job ha ha, I think that they will drive me crazy over the summer if I am unemployed…
I really hope I get it, it’s at Next, I’ve been wanting to work at somewhere like that for ages πŸ™‚
Everyone cross their fingers for me!

London was amazing!

I really enjoyed my short trip to London Thursday to Saturday! It felt as if I was down there for about a week! Me and my boyfriend managed to do a lot considering we were there for probably less than two days. So Thursday, we got the train down, checked in at the hotel and then went straight out and had a wander round London, the Euston area, so we went to Regent Park which is lovely, and then just walked around… Then I had Nando’s for the first time ever! Friday we went to London Zoo which was fantastic, I really love monkeys and there were loads there so I was very happy. After that we walked to the house that the television show Spaced was filmed in. It was a mega long walk and my legs and feet were killing me but it was pretty surreal seeing where one of your fave shows was filmed!! Then on the Saturday we checked out and got the train back.

I’m now back in Blackpool for a week to spend some time with the family. I’m also trying to find a job, which is like impossible!! But I really need one so it has to be done.

I’m also trying to sell some of my photographs because I am a really keen photographer. I mostly do landscape stuff. If anyone is remotely interested comment on here πŸ˜€

This week has been a long one,

So I’ve gone back home to Blackpool for the weekend to see my family. One of my aunties is down from Scotland and I barely ever see her so I took this opportunity to come and hang out.

This week I bought a book about how to write dissertations. Over the past few weeks I have been thinking about what I want to write mine about next year and I’ve decided upon writing it about early horror films. However, I’m struggling about what the main focus of my dissertation. So I bought the book to see if it helped me figure out my ideas. It seems like a really good book at the minute but I think I am going to email one of my tutors to ask for some advice. Ideally I would love to know what I want to write it about so that I can begin my research over the summer. I’ll let you guys know when I’ve decided what I’m going to base my dissertation on. πŸ˜€

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… Β 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!!

I’m going to have a little bit of a moan.

Okay, so this week is the last week of the semester for me and I’m going to be going home on Friday. So I am going to just take this opportunity to have a little moan.

As you all know I have been really busy recently with writing essays and preparing for deadlines that are this week. And two weeks ago I got really really annoyed.

Me and my friend sat down in lecture prepared to learn lots of information that we needed for one of our essays (that’s due in tomorrow!) and instead of our lecturer giving us a useful lecture we had a talk from the careers team.

Now, I know careers are important and at any other time or in another lecture (one where we didn’t have to have an essay in in two weeks) I wouldn’t have been bothered. BUTΒ this really touched a nerve because we were being asked basic questions that we already knew the answers too about how to get a career within the film industry. Β We were also doing tasks that I really didn’t feel benefited us at all. It all just felt like a waste of time. Especially because I know where the careers team are and I know that if I do want to talk to them or ask for some advice I know that I can go and get it at a time that is convenient for me as well as them. The talk lasted the whole lecture and we ended up missing it. That meant that we weren’t prepared for the seminar, we were talking about something that we didn’t have a clue about because we missed the lecture! That meant that the week after we would basically have 2 hours worth of lecture in one, which I really don’t think is fair!

I just really hope that the university tries to arrange things better next year. I know that this issue will be discussed in a future course rep meeting so hopefully it will. πŸ˜€
