I can’t believe another month has passed since the last roundup post I did at the start of April and even more so that we are now half way through this year already! There isn’t too much to report but here are a few things that have happened since the last one of these…
Since the last monthly roundup, I went to the appointment regarding the possible marfan syndrome a few weeks ago at the hospital. I unfortunately didn’t get an answer as expected as it isn’t as straightforward as diagnosing someone as it is largely to do with your DNA. As I have some of the symptoms I am awaiting a further appointment at a DNA clinic to have a blood test to be 100%. It is worrying having to wait but I’m hopeful I haven’t.
Radio One’s Big Weekend
Moving onto a positive note, as you may know I attended Radio One’s Big Weekend on the Sunday which was also my birthday after managing to get resale tickets which was incredible! Definitely a birthday to remember. I was so lucky for it to come to Middlesbrough this year so close to where I live! The weather mostly held up too – shock! It was my first festival I’ve been to and it was so good to see so many artists all in the one day that you wouldn’t usually get to see otherwise. Little Mix and The 1975 were superb.
This is something I didn’t think I would be saying but I’ve now had two driving lessons! Although I spent 99% of the time veering into the bushes on my first lesson, I think I’m getting it more now. I drove home the other day which was a bit nerve wracking but so far so good. I wasn’t sure if driving was going to be my thing as I’d never been really eager to drive like my older sister but it’s definitely taken me by surprise and I’ve surprised myself too. Apparently I’m not afraid of speed haha.
University Open Days
I’m going to a second uni open day later this month at my local uni which I’m hoping will give me a clearer idea of the course. They don’t solely do a photography course which is the course I’m thinking about taking which is a shame but it is an option through their fine art course. If anyone has done a similar course please let me know!
I hope this year is treating you well so far!
