evenin'! these weeks at home do seem to fly by, i can't quite believe i've only one week left until i head back to uni again for my final term, which will hopefully be an easy going term and provide a chance to unwind from the sheer madness that has been second year, as well as the chance to celebrate all our hard work and achievements, yay! as of right this minute i've finished up all 13 spreads of my book, the cover and the title page, and tomorrow i'll be getting up super early to finish my end papers which really shouldn't take all that long (i say that now, but i always find something to make the job last longer than it should - always giving myself extra work!), and will then be emailing off the first entire draft of my picture book to my tutors and awaiting a response to see what final tweaks will need making throughout next week. i'm both nervous and super excited about submitting to macmillan, but i think more than anything i'm just so unbelievably proud of what i've achieved in just 9 weeks and am looking forward to getting my finished book professionally printed so it can sit on my bookshelf as a reminder of "hey robyn, look what you can do when you dedicate yourself to something!" a reminder i'll need to take with me throughout third year so i can work my ass off just as hard and hopefully reap the benefits because of it!
in social news, on friday i headed to the party as planned, which was actually hawaiin themed and i'd forgotten! we had a fab time drinking from various fruit such as pineapples, melons and coconuts, scooping out fruity jelly shots, dancing to club tropicana in an 80s club and singing along to let it go by frozen in an extremely heart felt and theatrical fashion. all in all, a fantastic night with some of my nearest and dearest from home and a well deserved mini break from all the grafting i've been doing - home for 2 weeks and i've been out with friends twice, ouch! no pain no gain though, right?!
