Summer time

means being able to meet up with old friends.

I met one of my old best friends a few days ago for a catch up. It was really fun and I didn’t realise how much I’d missed him. It had been about 4 years since we last saw each other! Time goes so fast!! But we are back in touch now and hopefully things will stay that way. He has just finished his 3rd year at university!


First week back at home has been great!

It was a pain to pack all of my things and then unpacking was the worst thing ever! I don’t have enough room in my wardrobe for all of my clothes so this week I had to buy two storage boxes!
On Tuesday I turned 20! So me and my boyfriend went to Nando’s and then on Wednesday we went to the cinema to watch The Avengers which was awesome!
Tuesday night I watched my brothers band practise which was really good, especially because they have written another new song and I absolutely love it!
Then on Friday me and my mum went into Blackpool so that I could spend some of my birthday money. I bought a few clothes which was cool and strange because when I usually have money I can never find anything that I want to buy!
Then on Friday night me and my mum went to watch I local band called Hooker play. They’re so good and such nice guys it’s always a laugh!
And today I went to visit both my nans and then my mum and my aunties and uncles are going out tonight to watch another local band play. I’m unsure whether or not to go out with them though. Don’t know if I can be bothered getting ready! Hmm decisions!

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!
