I really haven’t read enough books for my Text to Screen module that starts in October. I need to get on that.
So I emailed my supervisor that I have for my dissertation next year with a more precise proposal. I really thought that my ideas were too big and that he was going to email me back saying “you’re rubbisshhh!!” and the wait for his reply killed me because I was so anxious.
His reply was actually really good. He said my ideas were strong but I shouldn’t be focusing on my segments yet and just focus on my ideas for now. So I’ve started writing a reply to him but I wanna make sure I can pack as much information in as possible.
I’m getting pretty motivated about this now. Yay. Thinking about buying some books to begin some mega research. I’m feeling excited, why am I feeling excited!? Ha ten thousand words is really scary…
Things to do this week are:
-Send email to my supervisor with more ideas.
-Look for some key books to begin research.
-Order books. Also check that the books that I am going to order will be useful.
-Buy a big notepad and ring binder (I love stationary so this is the perfect excuse to spend some money.)
It feels weird that I’m going to be doing a lot of work over the summer when I am at home… Pfft kinda sucks. But needs to be done. I also need to read books for a module next year too but can’t get motivated to do that. Really don’t like reading books that I haven’t chosen myself.
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!
