I'm ridiculously busy at the moment! Today I finally finished editing my films for our unit project next week. I was in a group with my friend Steph and our project turned out really well, we're so proud! They're being screened next week so we've been busy for the past fortnight filming and editing but we're both so organised it was a dream team and we've finished right on schedule. I know some people are having to go into the department over the weekend to finish editing - so glad we don't have to do that. I also made the poster to advertise the screening, which I'm pleased with. The screening will consist of the whole class's films being shown in various locations through the department - some in the cinema and some in other parts in an installation format. We all have individual titles (ours is 'To and From') and the whole project has been named 'There's no (place like) home'. The unit has been about globalisation and it's been really interesting. Most of our projects focus on the idea of displaced people or individuals, hence the name of the project.
I've also had essays and things for the other side of the course, so I've been busy busy busy. I haven't done any Christmas shopping yet either, so I need to get on that asap! Although I have no idea what I'll be buying yet as I am extremely poor at the moment! Oh, the life of a student! And to top it all off they're going to increase tuition fees to £9,000 a year. Great, just what we need to encourage more people to go to university, get a good job, improve the economy and make our country better for future generations. Or not.
I have thoroughly exhausted my emotions about the education cuts and fee rises in the past fortnight and only have this left to say. Nick Clegg is a coward and a liar. I know he is in a coalition government, but that does not make it ok to completely disregard a pledge that he made to his voters. To be honest, I would rather it was Labour who were doing this, because at least we wouldn't have been lied to. I doubt that the Lib Dems would even be in power if it weren't for them courting the student vote, and this is the first thing they do. Well, it's just going to ensure they're not in power again for another 50 years. Congrats.
Anyway, moving on from my bitter attitude towards Cleggy, I think I'm going to relax and watch some TV :) Has anyone seen this week's Gossip Girl?! Loved it! There were a couple of bits that annoyed me but I won't mention them in case you haven't seen yet and want to watch.
Bye for now
