Yipppeeeee! I just won a university photo competition, my prize being a £200 digital camera! I’ve missed having a small point-and-shoot as I gave mine to mum and dad at New Year so they could play with digital photos with their new Macbook. Unfortunately though, the one I gave them was a Japanese language model. You can imagine how they have struggled, technology not being their strong points as it is! Thus, I can give them this brand new English camera, and they can take great photos of the family to send to me when I’m in Japan – Hurrah!
I also won £30 in music vouchers for another couple of photos which won different categories – one of a rainbow over Sheffield, taken from the Arts Tower, and another of the Japan Soc Soran Bushi dancers performing in front of the Union.
I’m also honoured and humbled to have have been nominated twice for the Chancellor’s Medal. I’m not sure what to say about that, but thank you so much to the people who nominated me. I couldn’t have done what I’ve done without your inspiration and enthusiasm. Thank you.
To top it off, I’ve just had word from the library that the two library books I desperately need for my dissertation have come in. Yippeeeee!
OH OH OH and Bjork just emailed! She’s coming back to play for us on the 2nd July! Yippppppppeeee (again)!
Off to the Society Awards now – Japan soc entered for ‘Best National Society’ – and we’ve been shortlisted!
