Well Tumblr it has been 8 months, but I’m back. And in my absence I have gained a degree! I can’t quite believe it - I was 1 teeny tiny point away from getting a first but not too bad for a girl from Doncaster I reckon! I’m very proud. So what have I been up to in the 3 weeks since I finished. Not much is the short answer! The funny thing is that after doing my final exam in Tudor literature the first book I picked up was ‘The Other Boleyn Girl’ by Philippa Gregory and loved it. I highly recommend! Other than reading lots of things for pleasure I have been absolutely hammering the gym, it’s not long before I leave Birmingham and I want to get my money’s worth! I’ve been enjoying doing lots of guilt-free exercise and cooking loads of tasty and healthy homemade meals - oh and a few treats of course - I’m making blondies tomorrow and I cannot wait (brownies made with white chocolate fyi, to die for). I also went down to Devon for my best friend’s 21st birthday party, which was the most perfect little gathering ever - beautiful food and better company. She was the ultimate host. I also went in a speedboat for the first time. In another 3 weeks time I will be graduating!

I even got to sit in the tourguide’s seat on the way home. Jim the bus driver was just delightful

I saw ‘A Tender Thing’

at the RSC on Wednesday. It’s a remake of Romeo and Juliet, an interpretation of what would have happened if they had lived in to old age. My department subsidised the trip and sent a select number of us to go to Stratford-upon-Avon for the day for a cultural/educational enrichment day to go along with my Shakespeare module. It was brill, I was emotionally drained by the end!

Wednesday evening, perfect weather for a walk around Stratford. The outside of the Royal Shakespeare Company

Decent progress today guys

All my seminar prep for Monday and lotsa reading done, including the new year’s first edition of our student paper which has had a digital revamp. Not sure I’m digging it just yet, but I don’t hate it as much as I thought I would so yaayz! I’ve arranged dates for when my momma is visiting (hellsyeah). Now back to ploughing on with Charlie-D’s Bleak House. Why isit so freaking longgg

Conceptual artist Rune Guneriussen has just updated his website, adding 20 new magical-looking photos of works he’s creating on location all over Norway. In his usual style, the installation artist and photographer makes ordinary objects come alive - assembling everything from lamps, chairs, desks and books into such a way that they seem to be telling us enchanting stories.

He is opening a solo exhibition in Bonn, Germany today at Rheingalerie Bonn gallery which will run until November 10. He’ll also be showing three works as part of a group exhibition at Bugno Art Gallery, in Venice at the end of October.
