Last week I graduated from the Foundation Degree in Media Production at Bolton University. It was an unusual experience and so english. Basically all I had to do was walk on stage, shake a hand, have a photo taken and walk of stage. I felt ripped off. I thought your supposed to get a rolled up certificate to have the photo with and a tassle turner. I turned my own tassle because no one else did. I was pretty bored as Amanda and I was more or less first and there was a lot of people to get through. I nearly fell asleep and my mortar board fell off a couple of times. I think I may have annoyed Amanda with my boredom. Afterwards my family took photos of me, had two bucks fizz at the reception and then we all went for a meal at Frankie and Bennies at the Lowry Centre. It was fab, I had a three course meal and went home to sleep it off.
On the day I came back from America, I had a few more surprises. I got a letter from the University saying that I won a student award. I’d done it again as I’d won a governors award the year before. There’s more. I received a phone call from my employment advisor about a job that was just up my street. Basically the job entailed being a public speaker for people with a disability. To inspire and create more awareness about different disabilities. It is just like what I did at the conference. Wow, and I didnt do anything for that one to fall in my lap like that. I was thinking of moving as well as I have had some problems with my recent abode, but I may have to iron them out at a later date. Oh yes just one more thing, a lady called Jane Gregory has helped me and my mother to get an article in this novembers issue of Essentials Magazine. We will get a make over and a photo shoot at the end of August. The story behind that is my Canadian friend mentioned me to her and I contacted her. The rest is history.
I keep forgetting other stuff as well, I applied to a university email about a work placement at Media City with BBC Children’s. So I will be doing that at the end of August too. Gawd there is so much to do and think about no wonder my head is all over the place. Peace out, oh I think I should do that as well. lol.
