The Weekend Blog (Vol.45)
1st March 2015
On Wednesday I finished my dissertation, and submitted it on Thursday. I can’t tell you how much of a relief it was, and how happy I am to never talk about it again. Well, until my viva anyway.
I shocked a lot of people when I told them it was only 4,000 words, but then it was compulsory for us to go out and collect the data we needed ourselves. So, while it may have been only 4,000 words, I did actually spend a lot of time sending out emails, calling businesses and walking back and forth to the docks to conduct interviews, make observations and taking photographs.
In a way, it’s kind of sad to see it sent off because now I’m even closer to the end of my degree. I have three more piece of coursework and three more exams before it’s all over. It only feel like yesterday I was writing a post about getting into university. I’m not sure where the time has gone.
University has certainly been a love/hate relationship, and even now I can’t decide how I feel about it.
Even though I’ve spent most of my week in the flat working on my dissertation, it’s been a good week.
I received a Body Shop gift card this week in the post as compensation for a complaint I made (I was told their was a minimum spend on a offer when there wasn’t) and so I popped along to spend it. I purchased some of the products from their seaweed line, including the most amazing face mask.
On Thursday Tyrone and I found out we’d landed tickets to go and see the Jeremy Kyle Show being filmed (*cue your laughter*) in April which should be fun. We’ve got a hotel voucher from the competition I won over at MissPond’s blog, and so we thought we might as well use it to stay a night in Manchester before the show.
Yesterday I went along to the North West Blogger Meet Up which was a fantastic event where I got to meet loads of bloggers, including Anca. I’m planning on writing a blog post about it and will share in the week. Honestly, you should see the size of the goodie bag!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
P.S. I thought I’d start numbering my Weekend Blog posts in the title because WordPress has started over-writing some with them all having the same title.
