First class news ;)

Posted on

Because I’m all overexcited and HAPPY, I wanted to announce on my blog (because I’ve already tweeted, Facebooked, called and text everyone I know!) thaaat:

Today I found out I passed my degree in Communication and Media with a 2:1 – yay!

I’m so pleased with this achievement but I’m even more pleased with the FIRST I got for my dissertation.

All the time, stress, tears and sleepless nights were worth it, then! =D

Anyway… it’s time to celebrate!!

Looking back. And to the future…

So it is soon the time to say goodbye to another year.

(Unfortunately?) New Year’s Eve for me is due to be pretty much the same as every other night, a number of reasons meaning it is going to be a quiet night in with my man (going out for New Year is overrated anyway, right?). But I’m fine with this… It’s really just another day, a different date.

While I’m being all ‘old before my time’, I thought it would be nice(?) to look back at the past year, and also ahead at what 2011¬†might hold for me…

Toward the beginning of 2010, I was forced to say goodbye to my Granny. I still don’t feel as though I have properly gotten over this. Will I ever? I’ve lost friends and some family members before, but I think this was the first to truly, truly hit me. It was an is a difficult experience and I will miss her always.. x

I am always very grateful to all my wonderful friends, family and boyfriend for helping me through all difficult times!

After finishing my second year of University, I joined the team at the strategic marketing agency Cre8ive Wisdom for a summer work experience. I really enjoyed my time there and learnt a lot!

Also during the summer, my man and I moved into our first ‘just us’ home together, before celebrating our fourth ‘anniversary’! – Growing up!

I am now well into my third and final year of University – the biggie! And it is tough! Very stressful, but hopefully(!) rewarding… and hopefully(!?) it will all be worth it in the end! I know I will miss it when it’s over!

I’ve ¬†recently turned 21, which means I am apparently now officially an adult… although I feel as though I am in a kind of ‘limbo’ between childhood and adulthood!

My 21st celebrations were the best – thanks to my lovely family, friends and boyfriend (and maybe a little tequila…!)

So, if all goes to plan, 2011 might well be quite a big year… We should see me graduating and starting my career in the big wide world of ‘Full Time Work’ (eek!) I’m definitely becoming a ‘grown up’!

I look forward to visiting my family up in Scotland in January – although it will be odd being there without seeing Granny, or her and my Grandad’s house which is so full of personal memories. I also can’t wait to have a good holiday after the months of stress still to come between now and May!

I’m sure 2011 will hold plenty more of exciting (and maybe some not so) moments for me, and everyone!

Back to the grind… back to the blog

I realise I have been a very poor communications and social media -loving person recently for completely neglecting this blog for such a long time.

In case I have been missed, I was blogging over at Whizzkid’s Words as a part of my work placement. It’s a kind of daily diary during my time there, with links to articles I’d written and various other bits I was involved with.

Anyway, I’ve now well and truly begun the last step of this stage of my life – the dreaded Final Year. And it’s hit. Hard.

Sooo, of course I need something to procrastinate with… Hiiii! That’s why I’m here! (Just… half… kidding!)

But really, I’m actually finding the units I’ve chosen to take really interesting, so definitely expect me to share some gems here! I’m also researching a lot about social media and it’s use for public relations – this is the main subject area of The Dreaded ‘D’ Word (dissertation for all you stress-free types) I will shortly be beginning to write.

I think that blogging about some of my interesting findings (and I promise they’ll be interesting… to someone…) may help me with my own thought process and taking it all in – it feels a lot less like ‘work’!

Right.. back to reading for me! (:
