Busy little bee…zzz

Since I handed my dissertation in and my exams had finished I felt really strange. No more essays to write, no more deadlines, no more revision, (well until September) but a summer to just relax and do absolutely nothing ūüôā

Or so I thought… I spent a week at home being lazy, sleeping in relaxing and found it completely BORING!!! So I decided to get in touch with a local politician to see if there was any work experience or writing I could get involved in.

I helped handing out leaflets after the local elections and attended meetings where they discussed local politics and it was very interesting.

Volunteering is a great way to show employers that you have given up your spare time to get involved in something extra alongside your degree and shows a commitment.

I would definitely recommend it to any student!!

The Olympic Torch!

Yesterday, the Olympic torch made its way to my home city of Liverpool.

I made my way to University square on Brown low Hill where the torch bearer Maggie Hayes a student from the University of Liverpool was waiting. Crowds lined the streets as it made its way through the city. The atmosphere was buzzing, music was being played, people where performing and there were lots of cheers and noise from the crowd. The torch travelling through the city is a great way for the local community to get involved with the buzz of the Olympics.

I made my way to the front of the crowds so I could get a great view of Maggie’s torch being lit I hope you like my picture.

Great news..!

This week iI received fantastic news!!

My application to the University of Liverpool was accepted and they have offered me a place to study a Masters starting this September!! I am extremely happy and proud of myself for receiving an offer for a Masters degree and cannot wait to get started.

The course I have chosen to study is a MA in Politics and the Mass Media! The course draws upon my¬†favorite¬†things from my degree in Criminology. It has a module on human rights, the political economy, the media, international affairs and journalistic practices. I am excited for this new adventure to begin ūüôā

I¬†applied¬†for to study a Masters for the simple reason that I¬†love¬†to learn. I love to learn new skills and discover new things and they only way forward after my BA was to study an MA and then who knows maybe a PHD ūüôā

My future is looking bright I just need to keep up the hard work and hopefully it will soon pay off!
