1 month to go!!

WOW. ONE MONTH!!? That is truly insane how fast the last five months has gone... from 200 days when I first got the job to just 31 days now. In that time I have completed some really big challenges that I never thought possible despite the fact I was hurtling towards them - filming my minor, filming my MAJOR and then writing the beast of the dissertation. All of that is now handed in which seems a bit unreal. I just have 1000 words to write on my Production Analysis and 1000 words for Professional Development Planning (PDP) and I have finished my degree! There will be nothing more I can do. It's seems a bit wierd that I will actually be moving out of this house in just over three weeks time having been here for 2 years... I can't wait. But, I will be sad to leave Bournemouth and the friends I have made here... I know I will be back to visit before long! And of course, there is graduation in November too.

So, back to the Disney stuff, I still have to sort out my insurance and my housing fee but other than that I'm pretty sorted. I am on the verge of getting my money back from the last financial year (tax!) which will benefit my bank account muchly and then I just have to worry about how I am paying the 2 final rent payments which I have the fortune to have to pay despite not being here. Fun times.

Roll on 20th June! x

On this magic night... a million stars will play beside us...glittering, shimmering, carouselling....

Wow, I managed to not write on this thing for over a month! I was starting to get slightly worried I would have more messages before I'd even left than I wrote in the whole of 2008! I am guessing that's because I was too busy writing my dissertation which I successfully finished and handed in this morning, yay :-) You would have thought I'd be feeling really relieved and relaxed now but no. I still have to edit my major project (that's about half way done), write my production analysis (again, half done) and my PDP essay (only 1000 words). So I am taking the thinking of, the quicker it is done, the quicker I get to go to Disney! It's only 47 days today :-D And to be honest, those 47 days are going to be very busy and I have loads to do so I think they will go fast.

Also, to celebrate handing in my disso (and for the fact I am getting paranoid that the pound is going to crash after the general election in 2 days time) I went and bought my dollars this morning at Tesco!! Ended up getting a visa electron currency card which is novel... put $300 on that and then got $150 in cash... and the whole lot cost me £300. Which is gutting seen as when I went last time I got almost $600 for that amount of sterling! Hey ho... never mind. I still have to buy my insurance and pay my housing assessment fee but we're getting there. I have even bought a new zebra print suitcase!! YAY x
