never give up/awesome moment

Today was the opening of my universities summer show in which there was awards given out. I was given student of the year for the my year group of my course( I study film). I cant believe it, like literally i cant. I truely thought it was going to go to someone else in my year when my tutor was stood on the stage. As my prize they gave me a gift voucher that i can spend in like 50 different shops. I think im going to spend it on Amazon ether on books or a kpop cd.

Though yeah I posting this as I want to hopefully inspire people to carry on with the things they love even when it gets hard. During the second half of my year I want on three residential's to make films and somehow managed to got ill on all three of them. Then on deadline week I ended up spending four hours in A&E due to no fault of my own luckily in the end for nothing to serious. I was also hypersensitive to my own skin on the day I had to hand in all my work. Though I tried not to let any of it get in the way of my film degree as I just wanted to carry on doing the things I love regardless of what the situation might be. I did rest here and there but I tried not to do it often as I felt I did it at every hurdle that things just wouldn't get done. I cared far too much about my work and as a result I ended up being student of the year for my year group of my course. So yeah just thought i would share this happy moment with you peeps as i try and wrap my head round it all.

  • Thank you so much Smithfield. I'm glad your happy for me, I still cant quite it believe that i'm student of the year for my course. My health has really tried and tested me this year and I feel proud of what I have been able to do. I cant wait for next year to make even more films. Once again thanks, im currently looking at all the different books I could get, too many interesting ones.

  • You deserve to be proud of yourself. That is the problem with books to much choice. But browsing is good.


    Best wishes Smithfield
