The Weekend Blog
4th January 2015
I thought I’d give myself a few days off from blogging, hence why there was no Weekend Blog last week.
I can’t believe it is 2015 already. It only feels like yesterday I was celebrating my 20th birthday, yet on Tuesday I will turn 21. Crazy stuff.
I hope you all had a great new year how ever you celebrated it. Tyrone and I are now back in Liverpool and so took a walk down to Pier Head and watched a fireworks display. It not an official event; people just turn up and watch the fireworks set off by one of the nearby restaurants. Afterwards we returned to the flat for a glass of champagne before turning in for the night.
While I felt a little homesick my first few days back in Liverpool, I now feel settled in. It’s been nice to have a few days of taking it slow before we have to head back to university. I can’t believe this will be my last semester (I don’t count after Easter because I just have exams then.). I’m fed up of coursework and fed up of geography in general, but at the same time I don’t feel ready to graduate and go into the big world of endless rejection.
This coming week I have tonnes of work to do. I’m still trying to contact businesses to ask if they would let me interview them for my dissertation, and as email hasn’t been very successful I am now going to have to call. For some reason I feel incredibly nervous about this. I just keep telling myself that if they say no I shouldn’t feel too disheartened. All I can do is ask.
I’m feeling so glad that we have tickets for Phoenix Nights Live and Top Gear Live in February so that I have something to look forward to during January and February. It’s going to be a tough couple of months, but I think I can do it.
