I finally submitted my video entry for the Real World Awards today. This annual competition sees students recognised for their extra-curricular activities: I’ve chosen to focus upon those things I’ve done that fall into the “Socially Responsible” category.

It was very difficult to edit this video down to 3 minutes – the original was over three times that. Thus, it’s a bit jumpy and I have to miss stuff out, but nevermind, I’m still me.  I quite enjoyed filming it, despite the fact that our office door was being painted at the time and thus the room stank of solvents. Come to think of it, that might be why I enjoyed it so much…
It’s a blatant bit of self-promotion, but that’s what they want!
I think the idea now is to ask people to vote for me. The prize is £5000, a portion of which I’ll donate to charity, and the remainder of which I’ll put in a fund for our two baby girls (yet to be conceived). 
The only snag is, you have to be a UK university student to vote! The company running the awards is a graduate recruitment company, and they require you to register using a UK university email address.
If you have one of those, please do vote for me! Think of it as a wedding present for myself and *Twinkle* if you like…!
