I’m not sure how I managed it, but I actually procrastinated in a productive way. I know I wasn’t writing my essay that’s due in next Wednesday but I did apply to be a Student Marketing Assistant next year and finished off the article I was writing for the NUS web site.
Basically, the editor of The Galleon got an e-mail from someone who works for the NUS web site saying they were revamping their web site and needed new writers for it. I applied and they obviously liked the work I’d sent them as I got accepted straight away. My first article was a top 5 book to film adaptations so I decided to pick films that not everyone has heard of, avoiding the obvious choices like Fight Club (or at least that’s what everyone on my Facebook chose). It’s pretty cool that I’ve got something else to put on my CV and, more importantly, it feels pretty good that another person thinks my work’s good enough for publication. Apparently the web site gets a lot of views so it’ll be cool to get my writing out to a wider audience as well.
The Student Marketing Assistant position seems pretty cool and I really hope I get to do it as I think I’d be pretty good at it, so fingers crossed!
Other than that the weeks seem to be flying by at the minute and the list of things I need to do is ever-increasing. I miss first year! How I long for guilt free lazy days (and grades that didn’t really matter too much)! I also just had to ask my Dad for some extra money as our gas and electricity bills arrived and they were not pretty! How I miss Halls!
I’m going to see Noah and The Whale at the Guildhall on Sunday (and I’m reviewing it – it’s not all fun and games you know! I have to earn my freebies.) I’ve seen them a couple of times before and it’s always been awesome so hopefully it’ll be a good show.
Other than that, I can’t believe how quickly Easter’s come around! I’ll be in third year before I know it, eek!
