Hello all and welcome to the update for the week beginning 23/4/18!
It's a little disappointing not to be editing a video for the update to provide to all of you. Don't get me wrong, I love writing blog posts and writing in general, but it's a lot of fun to change it up a little bit from time to time. I am definitely counting down the days till I have an upgraded internet connection and I, hopefully, don't have to sit around for three hours trying to upload a five minute video! The upgrade to my internet will also mean more creative work to be done to some content that I haven't be able to do. So, all in all, there is a lot to look forward to (as I may have said a lot at the beginning of the year... point still stands!).
I want to make a disclaimer on the content for the week. You see, I've been a good little organiser this morning and I went through my diary for the next two weeks and planned what my life was going to look like. This included studying time, meetings, dinner with friends and family, a cycling race and so on. So, since I am aware that most of my time is taken up this week, it may be a bit challenging to post a lot this week. However, just as I do every week, I will try my best! I've got a few things planned (as you will see below) as well as something special in the back of my mind for Anzac Day this Wednesday.
Enough talk about what I might be doing, let's check out what's actually planned!
Hello all and welcome to the wrap-up for the week ending 21/4/18!
I know, I know. I said way back when that all wrap-ups and updates would be in video form from here on in. However, after a long time trying to work around my absolutely horrendous internet, I have had to make the decision to postpone all video content until June. Why June? That's when my internet is scheduled to be fixed and upgraded, so hopefully that means I'll have a nice speedy internet that won't take over three hours to upload a five minute video! Nonetheless, the recordings I did at Middleton are still scheduled to be uploaded before then. So, either this coming week or the week after, I will be uploading those two videos either at uni or elsewhere and then that will be it. Something to look forward too, I guess!
I have 100% confirmation on some really exciting news. So, I currently work full-time on a contract away from the website and that contract was extended. Wooo! I'm super excited and happy about this. I absolutely love where I work since I get to write and edit professionally all day everyday, so knowing I'm going to be where I am for longer fills me with a lot of motivation and joy. On the studying side of things, I'm slowly but surely getting through it all. Although I'm loving everything I'm studying, I can't wait to graduate and to finally call myself a qualified journalist, professional writer and creative writer. Maybe I should start a countdown? We shall see!
Anyway, enough about that. Let's get into this old-fashioned, text post wrap-up!
