Super fun list.

Many things have happened since my last post, so here's an update in a super fun list:

+ Dan and I – after several trips between Brighton and Southampton from his nan – moved from our house in Brighton. I stayed with his family in Southampton for a couple of days after we moved out, and I'm now back in Cardiff for a few days.

+ We've found ourselves a flat to move into! Provided nothing goes wrong between now and then, we're moving in on Saturday. It's just a small standard flat, but it's exactly what we were looking for, and it's in a nice village-y feeling suburb, so I think we'll be happy there, at least for a year or so.

+ I found out my degree results. I'll be graduating with a 2:1 (I keep accidentally typing that as 2:!) in American Studies. Which isn't too surprising, considering I've been pretty much smack-bang in the middle of a 2:1 with all of my marks. I was a little disappointed I only got 66% in my 8000 word dissertation, though; I put a LOT of time and effort into that, and only came out with 4% than I got in my Foreign Policy dissertation, which got considerably less of my time and effort. I don't know what I did wrong.

+ I met up with an old friend of mine (well, he's actually my ex-boyfriend, but we split up almost 4 years ago) and things went … strangely. I had a fun evening, but I was left feeling quite worn down by his 'joking' negativity. It brought back memories of the months before we broke up, and left me feeling rather unsettled. I don't know. He's a really good friend, though, so I hope things are better the next time we see each other. I'm sure they will be.

+ I've applied for numerous jobs and have so far heard back from only one. I will continue to wait patiently. I'm just not a very patient person. It would be so much easier if I had some sort of idea of what I want to do with my life. But I don't.

The internet has been playing up a LOT since I've been here – it cuts out for twenty minutes to half an hour at a time, which is incredibly frustrating. I was hoping to make the most of the internet while I'm here since I don't know when we'll get it at our new flat, but it doesn't seem to want to cooperate with me!


  1. sounds like a nice flat, I really like this post. great blog!

  2. Well done on your 2:1! I got the same in Fashion Journalism- done MUCH worse than you on my dissertation though



Comments make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside :)
