My Media Coursework 

My Media Coursework 

Today was the last day I had to finish and render my opening sequence of my documentary for media. I’ve told you guys before that for media studies I’m making an opening sequence to a documentary about how the representation of ethnic minorities in the media affect young people. I’ve finished editing it and I have finally handed it to my teacher and I’m quite glad to say that I’m quite proud of it. I know I said I would show you guys but it’s on one of the school network folders and hopefully I’ll upload it to my blog next week. I’d really like to have you guys opinion on it so, expect an opening sequence to a document on my blog next week!

I’ve had such a good week, I’m nearly haflway through reading Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and I’m enjoying it very much so far. I was quite a bit annoyed at Harry at the beginning of the book because of the way he treated his friends but I still love Harry☺️ if you were wondering, my favourite character is Hermione because she is hardworking, sometimes insensitive but she has everyone’s best interest at heart. Also, she is very loyal to Harry, who’s your favourite character is the books? I’ve been talking about Harry Potter a lot lately but I love the movies and this is the first time I’m reading the books and I knew I was going to love it!

I’ve got my audition tomorrow!… and I feel pretty relaxed. I haven’t been to this theatre before in London and I hardly know my way around London however, I know the route and in all honesty I’m quite excited. I haven’t been to a proper audition before and this will be a great experience. I know I sound confident now but I know when I get there I will be so nervous but I know that I will be fine haha😂 If you have any advice for me PLEASE TELL ME because it would be great!😂

I hope you guys have been having a great week and please tell me what you’ve been up to!

Future Plans 

Future Plans 

Since I was 13 I’ve always wanted to be a psychologist but it was only until I started doing psychology last year that I decided that I’m particularly interested in forensic psychology. I’ve always thought of myself as having 2 parts: a creative side and a more studious side. I like having a balance of both in my life and hopefully in my future career, that’s why I want to get into other projects even though I’m still focused on becoming a psychologist. I particularly like anything to do media e.g. Filming and I also like graphic design. I would have taken graphics as one of A-levels however graphic design in sixth form is art based. I’m still not sure if I should take a creative route in my life and I’ve always believed that people only think of me as being someone who isn’t very creative.

I love media studies, it’s been my favourite subject since year 9 and it’s the only subject I think I’ve been consistently good at. My teacher watched my opening sequence for my documentary and she was blown away with it which, makes me so happy especially when the deadline is in under 2 weeks. I’ve also been thinking about doing a bit of theatre as well, just for fun.

You may remember from my blog post: The Missing Cord! that I left my iPhone cord at school and I couldn’t find it the next day so I had to buy a new one. Guess what happened yesterday! Yep, I left my phone cord at school! HOWEVER, I walked back to school and luckily I found it plugged in the computer I was using. Thank God!

I hope you have been having a great week and please tell me what you’ve been up to this week!

I’m an official UCAS applicant!

I’m an official UCAS applicant!

Yayyyy🎉 I’ve officially sent of my application for university and I’m so happy. It’s been a long time coming and I want to thank everyone one of you who have given me advise and helped me with my personal statement. I’m applying to Leicester, Southampton, UEA, Kent and Loughborough. My personal statement has been the one thing that I’m been trying to perfect, my psychology teacher was really helpful as well because he gave me books with extra studies and research, that I added onto my personal statement. I talked about research into social and cultural stereotyping and language development in my personal statement which made it a lot better. I went my advisor and showed her my personal statement on Wednesday and she said that it was pretty much perfect which made me feel great! She had to check my whole application and today I pressed the button that officially sent off my application.

Yesterday, I went to do voluntary work at my old primary school again but this time I was helping out the Year 4s. I was a scribe for a called called Emma because she had broken her arm and I had a great time. Like last week, we were also writing instructions however this time the children had to make instructions for making an Alpana (symmetrical drawings on dotted paper). They had to use sophisticated words ( for 8 year olds) because it was going to be written for year 5s.

I’m also really happy because I’ve started editing my documentary for media studies. So far it looks really good but we only have 3 weeks until we have to give in a rough cut, then 2 weeks to make any changes. My teacher is quite proud of my work so far but I still have more filming and editing to do next week.

I hope you guys have been having a great week, please tell me what you’ve been up to this week or what you’re up to this week!❤️

It’s Finally Half Term

It’s Finally Half Term

If you haven’t already guessed from the title, next week is half term meaning no school for a week. Also, I don’t have that much homework to do except for some revision and I have to make a 3D model of the action of insulin in the body. I’m quite happy because I’m up to date with everything on my UCAS, all I have to do is put on my personal statement, pay and send. I think we’ve reached half term quite quickly, and if you think about it, there isn’t that much time until Christmas break. 

I was going to visit my mum and brother in Manchester but I’ve decided not too because I’ve got filming to do for media studies and their other things I need to do. I’ll visit them during Christmas break but even then I’ll have a lot of revision to do for January. I am so excited to start filming my documentary on how the representation of ethnic minorities in the media are affecting young people. I’ve asked a few on my friends and they’ve all agreed to be interviewed and also I’m hopefully going to get some footage from my church on Sunday. Media studies is kind of the only subject that I’m doing at the moment that I am throughly enjoying. I love psyhcology but I feel like I’m under a lot of pressure and I enjoy biology but the amount of work we get from our teacher is ridiculous. Another thing is that I am the star student of the week in Psychology because I got great results on my essay. I’m quite proud of that because this is the first time I’ve really stood out in Psychology and my class is full of really smart people. 

I hope you guys have been having a great week and please comment below what you’ve been up to this week/any plans for the weekend!
