Copenhagen pt. 1

It seems that I only have time to write here about once a month which is quite sad as my ideal weekend would be spent in my cosy bed with tea, reading blogs and writing here. I’ve been so busy with two weeks of shooting films for a Shakespeare project, presentation, essay and of course, my 10 000 words of death; the dissertation. I’m on the final days now, with only 5 days until hand-in and I feel a mix of stress, relief, panic and complete exhaustion.
I’ve wanted to share some photos from when I was in Copenhagen in September, which funny enough, was a trip to do research for my dissertation – which slightly backfired as the only material they had at the Danish Film Institute were things I’d already looked at back at the Swedish Film Institute. Nevertheless, it was a good trip with a mix of hot sunshine and pissing down rain (which at that point, I was on a bicycle and trying to not get run over by the other cyclists).
Graduation is slowly coming closer (6 months and I’ll be done with my degree!) and I’m trying to both keep sorta on top of my uni work whilst applying for internships and jobs for the life beyond academia. I’m having mixed feelings about where I want to go; I’ve always said I wanted to move into proper London (and not the little commuter suburb I currently live in) but now with such great success in the Scandinavian film industry, I’m keen on trying to get a job there as well. (also, I do miss the food) Can I do both? Time-turner?
p.s. my last name change has finally been approved from Svensson to Josephson, in honour of my late grandmother Harriet, born Josephson.
