Life, school and all that jazz....

The last month has been one of the most interesting times of my life. It is so great to be back at school and being taught so many interesting things by such interesting people. The course is really intensive, we are in class all day except on a Friday when we are free to do interviews. After class I often look after Charlotte and Emmy so most days I am away from early in the morning to late evening.

I was super excited to see my first interview in the Wellingtonian yesterday. It was an interview with a young artist and they ran it right at the back of the paper by the classifieds. On Tuesday nights I have my small group, Sundays are obviously busy and whenever possible I try to make it to the gym so life is hectic. I am also finding it stressful, but it's a good kind of stress knowing that I am working towards my goals.

Last week we were studying photograpy. We had to pretend to be returning journalists who had won a prestigious award overseas and had come back to conduct a lecture. Here is one of the photos, Josh hates it, thinks he looks like he doesn't have any teeth!

Tahi the kiwi...

As many of you know after class and at the weekends I look after two little girls called Emily and Charlotte. Last week Emmy (6) had the class teddy home for the weekend and it was her job to take Brown Bear Barney on an adventure. We went to the zoo, and were lucky enough to catch the Kiwi feeder in the pen with Tahi the Kiwi. It was unusual for him to be awake during the day and we were so lucky to get this photo. Emmy was so proud of it and said her teacher loved it.
