On the Twelve Days of Christmas…

Hello again everyone J

As you can see, I am beginning to get in the Christmas mood, I know it’s a bit early, but what can I say, the kid in me loves Christmas time. There are so many things to love about Christmas, firstly, the music! Christmas is not Christmas without some jolly sleigh bells accompanying a cheesy Christmas song! Everyone has their different opinion on the number one Christmas hit… But mine is and all always has been…

… That’s right “Fairytale of New York” by The Pogues featuring the late Kirsty MacColl. Such a good song, just thinking about it makes me want to dig into a nice Christmas dinner. That brings me to my second favourite thing about Christmas…

…CHRISTMAS DINNER! The turkey, the stuffing, the roast potatoes, the carrots (the only vegetables I eat), the pigs in blankets… All of it is AMAZING! Also, the fact that my mum is an amazing cook doesn’t hurt the situation! Last but by no means least…

…FAMILY TIME! Nothing is better than spending Christmas with family. It’s always loud at my house as I have seven nieces and two nephews ranging from age 1 to age 13 so my house is a lot about the kids at Christmas which is brilliant. It’s a shame nowadays children aren’t really aware of why we have Christmas. In this day and age it is just about getting presents and eating a lot of food. 

I hope you enjoyed my short blog on Christmas and what I love about it J Hope you enjoyed. See you next time when we will be closer to the festive day J

Deadline Time

Hello again J

It seems like I only started my third year a few weeks ago and now I’ve got two major assessments due in the first week of December, what’s all that about L

As I mentioned in my last blog regarding my directing opportunity…I GOT PICKED!!!!!!!! So I will be directing a full third year Drama production to be performed in May 2014, so I am over the moon with that news, but this also means that we now have an essay question for the same module which is fun because I like the subject that it’s regarding, but it’s an essay, so I find it very hard to be over the moon with this part of the news. It’s not much just asking for 2000 words so can be done easily but will involve one or two trips to the library… Possibly ten trips.

So on top of this I have another 1500 essay due… I suppose it is a lot better than doing a dissertation J Also I am involved with the Reminiscence Theatre archive (Basically in short, performing to old people in care homes) and we have just been given our roles for that and I have A LOT of lines to learn so I will try to squeeze that in around cramming for these essays. At least it’s coming up to Christmas now and once all the deadlines are done, bring on CHRISTMAS!

Until next time, take care J
