I hate my phone

I really really really hate it!

I’m trying to figure out if I would be able to afford at least a half decent phone when I go back to uni but I dunno.

I always manage to run out of money because I don’t really get that much.

It sucks.  I really need a job!

Plus I’m not going to have the internet in the new house for at least a week when I eventually move in, so it would be good be able to have some decent internet data to use up!

It’s really hard trying to figure out a budget for your money!

Travelled back to Ormskirk

to pick up my keys for  the new house and to check it out again!

Because last year I had the biggest bedroom in the house this year I am going to be having the smallest… And oh my it’s tiny!! Dunno what I am going to do with all of my stuff! I’m looking forward to it though plus the rent is only going to be £57 per week (minus gas and electric obvs)

But yay woop.

House situation

Well I think that I have mentioned before about how 2 of my friends that I lived with last year have decided to just commute to university next year. So me and my other friend had to try and find 2 other people to live with us. We managed to find 1 other so now our landlord has found someone else. So basically we are going to be living with someone that we don’t know. Again!!

I was really curious as to who the new person is going to be so I asked my landlord if she could tell us because we had a bad feeling that it was going to be a boy! But luckily it’s a girl.
I think that I found her on Facebook so I dropped her a message and added her as a friend. I hope she replies etc. so that I can get to know her a bit before we all move in.

I’m a bit awkward when it comes to meeting people for the very first time because I’m pretty rubbish at making decent conversations so hopefully we can get chatting before we meet in person!

One of the main points about university is meeting new people anyway so looking forward to it!

Words cannot explain how much I hate the Student Finance website.

Yeh, okay so basically I filled all the information in and saved it etc. And I went back on it last week to input my mum and dads yearly income and for some reason my application has messed up and like been sent off. Sooo I have gone through it again but it won’t let me change my parent’s income…

Stressed out!!

I’m guessing I am going to have to wait until they send me all the paperwork back before I can change any details….

Urgh, every single year I have some issue with the website. It’s really annoying and I don’t understand why it is such a rubbish system…

Dissertation Meeting

So today was the day I had to travel back into uni from back in Blackpool to have my talk about dissertations next year.

I’ll start from the beginning of the day…

So I would have had to get the train from Blackpool to Ormskirk because I don’t have a car :'( and that would have probably have taken me about two hours at the least. With travelling to the train station, waiting for the train, then going to Preston, then waiting at the station in Preston, then getting on the train to Ormskirk and then walking to uni. That is just a horrible and tiring journey which also costs me money that I do not have.

So, because my boyfriend is just the best he said that he would drive me in which should take an hour!

Okay so he picks me up at quarter to ten (the meeting is at eleven) so that we can get there in good time. BUT we get stuck in the worst traffic I’ve seen in ages in Preston… I was panicking a bit actually, it got to half past ten before we got out of the traffic. So I was there thinking I am going to be late for this really important meeting!

Anyway. we got into Ormskirk at five to eleven. So the boyfriend dropped me off at the entrance and I pretty much ran into uni. I got there in time which I was shocked about.

The meeting:
Okay, the meeting was really helpful Andrea was talking us through aspects of what we had to do and how we were going to do it etc. And we got given the handbook to look over. We were also assigned our supervisors for next year. Those are the tutors who are going to help us get through the dissertation. I’ve got Peter. I’ve only had him for my horror lectures this year and no seminars. He seems really nice and he is funny, which I love. But because I haven’t had him for any seminars or anything I’m a bit nervous because he doesn’t really know me, and I am really bad with meeting new people. But I’m going to have to just push through it.

Anyways the meeting was only half an hour… Which kind of annoyed me because it took me over an hour to get there and I kinda feel as if the information we were given was all in the handbook anyway and we could have just been told to download the handbook offline etc. So it is a bit annoying. But it got me out and about for a bit of the day.

Now is where it gets serious though. Really need to start research for my dissertation etc. I’m scared about it I really am. But hopefully it’ll be good.

Today has been very successful!!

Wooo!

So happy right now!

I have completely finished two out of my four essays! That includes quotes and research, footnotes, page numbers, headers and bibliography and filmography!

So my Horror essay is done.

And my Realism essay is also done.

 

That means that I just need to finish off my Censorship essay which is already half done! And then need to start and complete my Identity and Representation essay!! I have an extremely good feeling about this now! YES!

Because I am feeling so great I might try and finish off the bulk of my Censorship essay tonight so that tomorrow I just need to include quotes and then I can really focus on my Id and Rep tomorrow.

I actually feel as if I can get all of these done before Friday now. Woo! Just need to work really really hard tonight and tomorrow. I’ll feel like death but it will definitely be worth it to be able to get moved back home and to start research for my dissertation and do reading for another module for next year. And also to have a well earned rest over the summer!

I feel awesome!

Assignments, assignments and more assignments…

This is definitely the most hectic end of year yet. I have four essays that have to be in for next week, but I really want to get them done before the end of this week so that I can move back home.

So to try and achieve my goal I am spending all of today. Wednesday. In the university library with my friend who is also on the same course as me. I’ve written most of two essays, half of another and none of the fourth. So my aim for today is to at least finish the three essays that I have already started.

So that means focusing upon, Horror, Realism and Censorship.

At least my horror and censorship essay are kinda linked which is a bit of a help.

I will update later on today 😀
