We spent a day breathing in grey and salty air along the Yorkshire Coast, stopping first in Robin Hood's Bay for a quick 'splash' in the freezing cold water and a big cup of hot chocolate and then nipping over to Whitby for some freshly-caugh-freshly-cooked fish (haddock!) and chips. We took a meander up to the Abbey and pottered around the town just enjoying the break from screens, books and general university stresses.
On a small(ish) life update, I've accepted an offer to study for my masters at SOAS, I'll be doing 'Human Rights Law' and will (fingers crossed I get the grades they ask for) be moving back home to London this summer. Phillip is waiting to hear back between other London universities and options in Berlin, so we are unsure if we're about to face another year of long-distance or whether we might both be in London.
At the moment I'm working on my penultimate piece of writing for hand-in and then it's just the dissertation left. I have finished all classes, no more undergraduate seminars, workshops or lectures again!
I'm looking for as many postgraduate funding options as I can so if you happen to know of any do let me know, all paths are being followed on that front!
It's just Phillip and I at home at the moment, our housemates have gone back to their respective countries (Luxembourg/Norway!) for the long break we have over Easter. We'll be heading to Germany soon and will be celebrating Easter with Phillip's grandparents as has become tradition for the past four years, this will be the fifth! Tonight however we are eating steak (!!!)
I've been taking ballet and pilates classes again and am really beginning to notice that I'm feeling a lot more positive and less melancholic or fatigued which is good.
I can't promise there will be bounds of posts in the next couple of weeks whilst I wrap up this degree, but come summer I should be back on board ship!
Take care to all who are reading and thank you for reading!
