That time of the year…


I didn’t think I could do it but I did. All thanks to God. That communications theory assignment was something else. I did two all-nighters at the Greenwich library; how I did it I don’t know. I stayed there all night from like 6pm till 6am. On the day this coursework was due I stayed there from 12pm till 11am the next day. And don’t you dare say I left it till the last minute because I did not; it was just extremely difficult but I did it! *sigh* the “SUITE” life of a masters student. Now I have three to go but at least I have a bit of content for those already so hopefully I’ll be fine with a lot of concentration and of course prayers.

The best thing about these library sessions though, I get to see my crush nearly every day. I am not obsessed. He just doesn’t know he loves me yet but he will soon, hopefully not after I would have moved to Poitiers! J J J

So last week and this week, parts of the university resembled parts of Russia, it was really cool; and to think that on one of these all-nighters I missed a great chance to meet Ewan McGregor and Johnny Depp who were in the middle of filming parts of their new movie Mortdecai on our dearly beloved Greenwich Maritime campus. I could have been famous L L L. However, I did get to see a cool scene being shot; I was quite excitedJ.

It’s been really amazing studying on this campus though especially since most of my lectures have run till about 9pm; this is the time when they film most of the movies. I think I’ve seen nearly five different films being shot so far (that’s a lot more than seeing none at all!) since I started in September and apparently parts of the sequel to “The Woman in Black” will be filmed here on Monday; something to look forward to. I wish I had seen Thor when it was being shot as well; seeing the handsome Chris Hemsworth would have made my year.
It’s been a good year so far. I can’t wait to go back home to Ireland for Christmas, after a whole year away. I will leave you guys with an “inspirational” Christmas video I saw on Facebook the other day:


 
Have a great Christmas…

Toodles!

THE STORY SO FAR

It’s been a month since I became a year older. What can I say? I feel err older? Lol I don’t know how I feel. I did promise to show y’all my birthday cake though, didn’t I? It was specially made for me by a lady at my Church. Here it is; my giant cupcake…


But anyway it is now December and the first part of my masters is nearly over (9 months to go yay!). I have no more classes (haven’t had for the past two weeks); I’ve just been attending group meetings for the pitch presentation I did yesterday. It went surprisingly well (thanks for asking!). I think we impressed the ‘judges’ hehe (well I hope we did!).

I’m pretty sure a lot of people who live in London have heard of Yo-sushi? Of course you have! The ‘Yo’ brand do way more than just sushi, they also have hotels and other things going on. I won't go into a lecture about the Yo brand now. So basically we had to conduct research on Yotel (google it!) and come up with a communications strategy for the opening of their new hotel in London. It was all make believe but taken very seriously, we even got to speak with Jo Berrington, the marketing director at Yotel. It was an amazing experience as she seemed to love the job she was doing, she spoke about it with such passion. I certainly want a job I’ll be able to speak about with love. I’m not entirely sure if this is how it’s said but I often hear people say: “If you have a job you love, you will never work a day in your life”.

Now that the almighty presentation is out of the way, I’ll have to complete my 4500 word essay on the research we conducted for Yotel which is due next week, another 4500 word essay on the strategy which is due in January, a 3500 word essay on Young Consumers and a 4500 word essay on the research methods for my dissertation which are both due next week. I will try not to complain about all this work. I try to work extra hard so I can have an exciting future.

Take a look at this beautiful Audi e-Tron Spyder, my motivation! So anytime you think of quitting school, think of the beautiful things you can get with good money when you graduate and eventually get a well-paid job.


Toodles!
