… and I’m done with spring term! Which also means I’m done with all taught classes of second year! I can’t believe that it’s gone so quickly, like, ah I’m actually getting slightly panicky over how fast everything is going. I have easter/spring break now until the 24th of April (a whole month, mad isn’t?) but I’m going to be busy writing essays and other hand-ins for summer term. Summer term is traditionally reserved for just exams, but as my degree is so practice based, we don’t have any exams. Instead, we start working on our third year collaboration graduate films and I’m also starting writing my dissertation, which is to be honest, scary. Not just the fact that I have to write 10 000 words, but also that it really means that we’re on the end bits of the degree.
Lately, I’ve been working on my film which is due on Wednesday. The reason we hand it in after the term has ended is that the other week, the servers crashed and all of our edits, which were almost done, just got wiped out. Luckily I had all the footage backed up, but I still had to re-edit a week’s worth of work. I almost cried in front of my teacher when we realised it was all gone so instead I went home to cry and stuff myself with biscuits.
I’ve also been to the cinema, seen both Moonlight and a new documentary called All This Panic. We’ve had a couple of really nice and sunny days which meant beer in Founders quad and bare legs. My friend from my old school back in Sweden, Anna, came over to look at my university as she’s applied to here and UCL, and the cherry tree outside my window is blossoming with pink flowers so Mary and I took a photo with it the other night.
What was meant to be a surprise for my friends in Stockholm kinda failed as I saw that Cinemateket is showing 2001: A Space Odyssey in original 35mm and I just had to message my friends saying that, yes I’m coming to Stockholm for a week, and please buy tickets and go to the cinema with me. Fingers crossed for some nice weather!
I had my last screenwriting class today, which was kinda sad as I’ve enjoyed those classes a lot and I’ve learned so much too. Later today I’m going to a bbq with a couple of people from my course and then going to Flora’s for a pizza night, hope you all have a great weekend!
