I FINISHED MY DEGREEEEEEE
AH the freedom! Now, what the hell am I going to do with my life?! Like, seriously.. I don’t even know where to apply for jobs.
So I finished my degree last Friday, and I got a small wacky little job the day after at some place near Liverpool street called ‘The Pipeline’, there was an fundraising event going on in the basement of this place for some Alice themed film. There was some pretty crazy characters performing, but it was good fun.
My graduate showcase at the University of East London with work on show from all the other students on my course will be opening on the 29th of May in the AVA building, feel free to come along and have a look.
And again, I will be doing the Free Range graduate exhibition at the Truman Brewery on Brick Lane this year. My university will be exhibiting between the 12th and the 16th of June. I posted about this a few times last year, where I said I will be the one curled up in the corner.. And I probably will be again. I’m sad I won’t have Paul, the brilliant technician who got me and others through the course in my first two years to help out again. And with the exception of Dom who has been doing the same course as me this year as well as the first two years back in Swindon, there is barely any one I even like that will be around. So it’s gonna have to be a round up all the free drinks before any one arrives tactic…
Here’s hoping my boyfriend finishes his masters degree in time to come for the open evening!
…is coming to an end for me.
So it’s been 5 years of Secondary School and GCSES, 2 years of College and A Levels, 2 years of Foundation Degree and 1 final year to get my full Bachelors Degree at the University of East London. And all of that is going to be over in two weeks. TWO WEEKS. (and hopefully I’ll never go back to education ever again…it’s not for me)
I’m not sure I can cope with the idea of having to be a real grown up after that time. I’m going to have to get a proper 9-5 job. That’s a terrifying prospect. In some ways, I’m looking forward to having a job, I’d like to be able to earn my own money and not having to freak out that I’m buying clothes or nice food with my student loan instead of using it for printing costs blah blah etc.. and I will love being able to get back into some kind of routine again. I think that’s what I’ll miss the most, having a routine… because I definitely won’t have that for a good few weeks.
I am really looking forward to be able to spend some real time with Ben again. I’ve shown the below pictures before, but wanted to show them again. I know one of them is kind of christmassy in the background, but it’s a lovely picture of my Benjamin. (:
Stanton House is my favourite Japanese restaurant and does the best sushi I have found yet…
So if you are in Swindon, I would definitely recommend the visit. Stanton House also has these beautiful massive grounds – Stanton Park – which is where I went for a walk around with my boyfriends wonderful parents and jack (the dog) on Sunday. It was a lovely day, and a lovely walk. But I’m still sad about missing the sushi.. But here’s hoping I can go next week!

I would personally like to invite any photography fanatics to an event on Monday the 17th of February
This event is a photography book launch in aid of one of my third year BA modules. We’d love the support of any one who could come!
The details are:
Date: Monday 17th February
Time: 12pm – 4pm
Location: Leytonstone Library
6 Church LN, London, E11 1HG
Event: Photography Book Launch
‘No Borders’, a travel photo book, designed by five aspiring photography students at The University of East London. The photographs presented will raise awareness of countries around the globe, by helping an audience understand the culture that distinguishes them. The viewers can have an insight to the places they have never been before, but hope to go one day, after coming across No Borders.

Jamie’s Farm (aka hill house farm) helps children to flourish in education, at home and in the community.>
‘Jamie’s Farm exists to transform the lives of vulnerable children in challenging urban schools, by providing a unique combination of ‘farming, family and therapy’ through a short stay residential and follow up programme. We aim to re-engage children with educational life, and enable them to fulfil their potential both in school and the wider social setting.’
Jamies Farm is a really great idea, and deserves great support.
I had the great opportunity to go to this farm on Monday and photograph one of the workers and the animals. I got sooo lost trying to find it! Was wandering around for about an hour. Nice countryside walk though. 🙂
They have a range of animals here, pigs, sheep, horses, cows, chickens.. and so many adorable pet dogs. I got really excited getting to play with some puppies. :’)
Here are some of the photos I took.
Wedding photography is all kinds of stressful…
Today has been a busy day, first I was back shooting at Lotmead, which was verry fun. And then I was off helping Dom with a 25 year vowel renewal..wedding..thing. I just didn’t know what to do, and I couldn’t understand a thing they was saying.. Awkward.
Below are a couple of pictures I took from the wedding and the reception. For any of those interested, I was using my new 50mm as I’m in love with it, and cant bring myself to take it off my camera body. 🙂
