What ISN’T new would be the better question. The last few weeks have been kind of crazy, but mostly in a good way. I’m writing this from the sofa of my temporary flat in Berlin, where I’m staying for six days to participate in a film journalism seminar. It was all very last minute and stressful, because I was also visiting a friend in Dublin last weekend, but now that I’ve had some sleep and rest again I’m very glad I did it. I love movies and writing, and we’re learning a lot about Polish films, because the seminar is organized by the Polish Institute, so overall I’m having a great time.
Speaking of movies, I also applied to do my MA in Film Studies in the UK and got offers from a couple of universities. I confirmed the offer from the University of Edinburgh, but it’s all a bit uncertain at this point, because it’s crazy expensive and I don’t know if I can get a scholarship yet. I’m also going to apply to some German universities, but I’d have to study in German (which means I’d have to actually learn comma placement in German, the horror) and I’m not sure I’ll get into the courses I want to get into, because the subject is different from my BA. So as you can see it’s all up in the air right now, and I’m reaaaaally curious to see where I’ll end up in fall. I’m also working more because my student loan ran out, but let’s focus on the other stuff, because that’s way more interesting.
I got The Son of Neptune as an audiobook and some books I might or might not be able to use for my Bachelor thesis in print. Other than that, I’m actually refraining from buying more books at the moment, because I have SO MANY I haven’t had the time to read yet.
