Time for an update...

Well I haven't posted on here in ages! I've been really busy with third year so far, can't believe I'm half way to finishing. Since September I've finished my minor project, handed in my dissertation and am well on my way through my final major project which is all a bit scary!

Before I talk about my work though, I should probably tell you what else I've been up to. In September, just before I came back to college, I completed the Great North Run again in a faster time, which I am thrilled about! It really is a great event and what seemed like the whole of the North East were out supporting us all, even in the terrible weather we had.

I also went on a 4-day trip to New York which was amazing! It really is such a beautiful city and I didn't really want to leave. Although we were only there for 4 days, me and my mum managed to pack a LOT of sightseeing, shopping and eating into the trip so that by the time we left we were exhausted! My favourite place in the city would have to be Central Park. I loved how it was just like a completely different and calm world compared to the busy streets in the rest of city.

Below are some of my highlights:
