wicked, new job, and finishing college
hi guys! i have a lifestyle post for you today, but i'm not sure whether or not to keep doing these any more if i'm honest. i feel like my book posts are going really well and that these types of posts aren't popular at all and maybe my blog would be better if i focused on just one genre? but i also feel kind of guilty about not doing my theatre reviews like i used to, and i know that if i get to travel then i'll definitely want to blog about that, so i'm not sure what to do. opinions in comments would be greatly appreciated!
so at the start of may i had my final major project deadline! i was really good about planning my work and making sure i got stuff done so i wasn't too stressed by the deadline and i was really happy with everything i submitted. then sometime towards the end of may we got our results - and somehow i managed to get a distinction! that's the highest grade you can get on my course, and i only needed a pass to get into university, so i am over the moon about that! i want to go a lot more into detail about the work i did but college have kept my sketchbooks back to be examples for next years students so i'll have to wait a little while before showing you guys.
the same week that i got my results i also had an interview for a summer job which went really well and i managed to get the job! i don't really feel comfortable with telling you where this new job is because i spend so much time there and we only have around 3-6 employees in at any one time so it would be really easy to track me down if someone tried to find me and i just want to put my safety first. i will say that it's in retail for a big company. anyway, i started on the 1st of june and i'm absolutely loving it; it's the best job i've ever had! i'm actually quite sad that i'll be leaving at the end of september haha!
june has also been a great month for theatre! i saw an amateur production of 'seussical the musical' which was really good (although i did accidentally buy front row seats and we kept catching the cat in the hat's eye haha), and the 'wicked' tour came to the grand! i actually ended up seeing it twice - once with my family, and then about 5 days later i was able to grab myself a front-row dress circle seat. i saw 'wicked' in london's west end last year (which i wrote about here) but honestly, i thought it was so much better on tour! i'm not sure if that's because i forgot some details or because i was sat so much closer at the grand, but the story seemed a lot clearer and well-rounded. plus, as always, i found some new things to love this time round - nessarose's 'wicked witch of the east' was phenomenal and i realised just how heartbreaking the story is for glinda (she loses her best friend and the only man she's ever loved, and then has the courage to stand up and rule oz?! she's incredible!). i also adored nikki davis-jones' 'no good deed', which i had never really liked before. you guys know how much i love this show and you should definitely all go see it if you get the chance!
so that's it for now guys! the only thing that july holds for me is working hard and saving money haha! do you guys have any exciting plans? thanks for reading xx
