The weekend just gone was without a doubt, one of the best of my life; BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend came to my home city of Hull. The event is something I have been looking forward to for months, and I had been lucky enough to be among one of 50,000 people who got a ticket but in the last week I have gone from being a spectator to being backstage and gaining experience in the industry. Over the course of the last seven days, I applied to a new BBC scheme called ‘Class of 2017’ which aims to give young people work experience at the BBC, for which I was a successful applicant and gained a position on the scheme with nine other young people.

A collection of photos from my travels
So in my last post I said that I recently went on a trip to Madrid and I thought it’d be nice to share a few of the photos I took over the few days I was there.

Oops I did it again.
I neglected my blog for other pursuits. Such other pursuits include: essays, exams, moving out of halls, going to Madrid, and the BBCR1 academy. Not a very good excuse, I know but it happened and now I’m back.

As you have all already gathered, I am a student. I am also a student in one of the UK’s most expensive cities meaning I run on a tight budget. I am lucky that I am close with my flatmates, because we all share food and meals. Around 6pm each evening, I’ll get a text saying “what’s for tea?” and we’ll cook together, eat together, and wash up together. This little arrangement not only brings us closer but also is pretty cost effective. We use whatever each other has and it works out cheaper. Also, with the pressure of cooking for others we’re more likely to make healthier, homemade food instead of just ovening chips (which we do from time to time ofc)

A nightmare at Kings Cross, and a lot of personal achievement.
Sorry I’ve been a little absent lately, in all honesty I’ve just been trying to enjoy time at home, with my wonderful parents whilst I could. Yesterday I took the journey back down to the big city of London, and I felt out of touch with the pace; having spent a month in a quiet town.

It’s out with the old, and in with the new. Goodbye skies of grey, hello skies of blue.
Welcome to 2017! Another year!! I’m starting to feel fairly old at the thought that 2007 was now 10 years ago, 10 whole years! I hope the new year has treated you well so far, and that you had a great night partying/staying in/working/whatever.

The end of the year, the start of a new
Today is the 30th December 2016, the penultimate day of 2016. It is widely up for debate whether this year has been average, or pretty abysmal. Sure, a lot of well known deaths have shook the year, Dr Donald Henderson, Alan Rickman, George Michael and Carrie Fisher to name yet a few. And yeah, it’s been pretty divisive politically too, the results of Brexit and the US Election have split families and made the talk over Christmas dinner particularly explosive. But has it all been that bad??
