I can now saw I have been offered a place at the University of Leicester -> and I will be attending the programme in October. I will, however, be moving in September so I am taking a day off work to go view residences and get a campus tour. this will be the first time I have seen a place or University before I actually move there.
One long bus ride later and a slight detour later (somehow I managed to loose my awesome sense of direction) I arrived at the residence. However, the tour lady was not there. So I got a tour from a very kind maintenance worker which turned out to be a benefit because he was able to answer much more details questions about the property.
I then took a quick walk to campus where I got a tour from a fellow history graduate. While the campus is very nice I have managed to end up in a building that looks like a cheese grater.
The moment is finally here! Almost a year ago I was in the online queue of the first people to purchase tickets for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child ->. So today just one week after its premiere I am at the Palace Theatre I am going to be watching the long awaited play. Now before you criticise the book hold on a second. While I own the book and have not yet read it (waiting for after the play: Spoilers!) I will say that different mediums require different delivery. What works on stage (and let me tell you it works!) does not necessarily work in print or on film.
I have never seen so many people leave a production before it finishes. I took a chance and got tickets for Kenneth Branagh’s Romeo and Juliet -> starring Richard Madden and Lily James (except Richard was off that night). I don’t know what was worse, the concept or the acting. But I did cringe at several points. The reviews do not lie.
