so that presentation i mentioned before. it went pretty well.
i'm a little smug, which i shouldn't be because it was only worth 30% of one module whereas my dissertation will be worth the whole of a double module so chances of bombing out of uni are still high.
i was shown the place where my work is going to go in our end of year exhibition and it's pretty perfect i'm really pleased. 8 feet of high white wall with my name on it. i feel quite calm now about it all. i still have loads to do but once this bad boy of an essay is in, it involves buying frames, printing the images in lancaster and painting everywhere white for the exhibition!!! i have this great love of painting walls. if i could do it more often i would but it's quite impractical. me and rachael were discussing how much fun it's going to be only to realise that if we wanted to paint walls we didn't really need to have studied photography at uni for 3 years. it's a good fall back profession though because clearly there aren't any other jobs out there right now for someone who takes pictures using large format costly negatives.
although i have not got any major prospects in jobs after uni i'm excited to be finished. student life was weird to do after working full time for 3 years. i felt guilty a lot about how much free time i had. and where the money i was spending on stuff came from (thankfully not from any bank overdrafts hooray for three years without real and scary debt as opposed to moderately scary student debt). i might just emigrate that sorts it out right.....
