One down two to go
It's been exactly one week since I moved out of my lovely little lakeside room.
This year has been jam packed with a whole load of adventures and I can honestly say that it has been one of the best years of my life. I don't want to be cheesy but I've made so many friends, learnt so many new things and created so many fab memories.
It's hard for me to think of specific moments as there are just too many but I can attach most of my favourite memories to my favourite people that I've met here at Warwick.
Next year I'll be living with my flatmate Lucy and also Andrew our good pal who's from a nearby flat. In addition to repeating all the mischief we got up to this year, I am ecstatic for next year and can't wait for sophisticated dinner parties, an immaculate kitchen, cooking together, cuddly movie marathons and random late night adventures.
I am also so grateful to have met some amazing friends through church. I have been attending Coventry Elim this year and as a result I have bumped into some pretty wonderful people. It makes me so happy that all of our paths crossed. Friends for life for sure.
Even though "don't worry first year doesn't count" was a comforting motto to have in first year when things got a little tricky or stressful I can't help but wonder what my next year at uni will be..
So what's next?
I managed to get a 2:1 overall this year which I'm over the moon with! I definitely want to celebrate the end of first year at home and hang out with all my friends and family. Watch out for my summer bucket list blog post coming very soon!
I have already been assigned my modules for next year after filling out a form and picking my preferred modules with a supporting statement. I didn't get all of my first choices but I did get most of them so I am a happy bunny! Next year I will be studying:
Theatre in the Community
Writing for Performance
Religion, Secularity and, Affect in the Modern World
Melodrama in the 19th Century
South African Theatre
Thankfully I've been given a range of modules that are both tested by practical and written means. I also made sure to try and pick modules that were spread out during the year so that I wouldn't be excessively drowning in work at the end of the final term. Instead I hope to float along in a happy little boat across the sea that is second year.
All of our modules combined have to equal 120 CATS.
Theatre in the Community and Writing for Performance are both 30 CAT modules and so span both the Autumn and Spring terms. South African Theatre and Religion, Secularity and, Affect in the Modern World are both Autumn 15 CAT modules. That leaves 19th Century Melodrama and Performing Online which are both Spring 15 CAT modules.
Theatre in the Community and Writing for Performance were two modules in particular that I really really wanted so I am so grateful that I did get them. I remember looking at Warwick's list of modules and finding them on the website. Applied theatre is something that I am really passionate about and would love to be more involved with it.
Watch this space for first impressions on all of my modules when I start next year.
Warwick you have been wonderful this year. I can't wait to see you in October!
