Wait for it...

Hey guys,

I hope all is well

Well what have I been up to?

Can u say Wedding?

Can you say he put a ring on it?

Yes guys I am officially ENGAGAED.X

I’m very happy and immensely excited I’m getting married y’allJ

Now that the dust had settled, the violinist has been paid and the theatre production is on to the next proposal. (I’m joking it was very personal and sweet I promise you) It is now time to think about the big day and start the planning process. If I’m honest it seems like a mammoth task that I am not equipped for L Maybe a wedding planner is needed.

In other news the sun has come out to play and its beginning to feel like summer is almost here. I have booked tickets for a few concerts and festivals so yes, summer 2015 is going to be a great one. Lots of Barbequing now that I have a garden, it will soon be functional garden as I have hired a landscaper and dismissed the ideas of DIY gardening. I think I was over zealous when including gardening as one of my projects. A countless amount of spider’s attacks and other creepy crawlies quickly help me diminish that idea!

I recently went to a bike project launch. Bike Freedom is a project that affiliates with different organisation to promote health and transports opportunities to communities. It is presently working with the “999 Club” based in Deptford, South East London. The 999 Club offers a drop-in centre offering social and practical support for the homeless and those with alcohol, drug, and mental and physical health problems. It aims to provide free, alternative transport with the use of bikes to commute to Job centre appointments, job interviews and other helpful agencies. It is a useful project that is needed within many communities and can be applied to different social groups. I hope to offer my time as a volunteer over the summer, it is great to see such practical work being done within communities. Check them out if you get a chance.x

Until next time

Trials and Tribulations of my second year

Hey guys.

I hope all is well.

I can officially say that I am assignment free and it feels sooo good!

I’ve enjoyed the trials and tribulations of my second year. I am very proud of myself, there were times that sickness, stress and life tried to get in the way; it was touch and go on two particular assignments that I thought I wouldn’t even turn anything in. But I laugh in the face of those assignments now, as they have both been researched, typed and submitted (so there, in your face) lol!!!!

I have lots of free time and now that I am fully rested I am on the prowl for new projects to occupy my time. There are a few home d├ęcor projects that I will be turning my attention to that I have been putting off since moving house last summer; wall papering my hallway, gardening and a little bit of painting in my bathroom.
I also have time to think about my future and steps towards these goals. I will be considering if I will be applying for a masters in youth and community studies or a PGCE (postgraduate teaching certificate in education) in primary education. I thought that I had it all planned out. However, working for the university in the Enquiry Unit has opened my eyes to many more possibilities regarding careers and countless routes into what I want to do (it may be a good idea to settle on a career goal Sade)! I will be using my time to focus on my future, graduation is a year away but I want to be well prepared for when I’m thrashed back into being a mere mortal again . This student bubble has to pop sometime!
Until next time

If you can’t be good, be careful ;)
