It feels like it has been ages since I have spoken to you all on here! :( University life is so busy, even if I do spend a lot of time in bed, that finding time to blog is very difficult right now. But I am missing it so thought I would do a little update on what has been happening whilst I have been here.
I have been at Greenwich for over a week now, and trust me it feels like a lot longer. The place is stunning, it is old fashioned with its cobbles and Hogwarts style buildings, my university buildings are actually used in films apparently, like Pirates of the Caribbean and the new Les Miserables film. It is also right on the River Thames with Canary Wharf opposite so there are some lovely views.
I can't comment on my course yet as I have only had one lecture and one tutorial, which have been based on getting to know each other. I am studying a BA Honours in Events Management, and in the programme my courses are Introduction to the Events Industry, Experience Design for Events, International Events and Festivals and Professional Practice (based on work experience etc.)
I am so excited to get going with it though, I have been passionate about events for a long time now and hope I am going to be good at it, even if I will struggle with essay and report writing!
Another great thing that has happened whilst being in Greenwich is that I managed to get myself a job! I wanted to get a job that is related to my course and interests, so am now working at the O2 Arena (how exciting!) I start of selling programmes on event days and nights, I am really excited, I think the place will have a good vibe to it and be fun to work in. Plus it will hopefully open doors to work there in other sections because of my choice of degree! :)
University life so far has been really fun, if anyone is considering going and wants to know more then I could give writing a full post a go! My flat mates are all really lovely, we get on so well with each other and are always laughing. Plus I have a met a fab group of girls who are studying the same course as me.
I hope you have enjoyed reading some of the brilliant guest posts that have been up recently. I hope to get back to blogging soon :)
Thank you to everyone who has tweeted me and been lovely whilst I have been quiet!
