I am feeling quite proud of myself lately.

I have been so productive and trust me it's a rarity!

 As you all know I have joined Jamie's 30 day shred challenge and to be honest there are times when I feel like giving up. It's so intense and me being silly decided I am up to more challenge and moved up to level 2. I was wrong. It has been two days now and I feel like a zombie. I am so terribly tired but I promised to push myself and not to give up. I seriously can't wait for the 30 days to be over!

I've got some good news to tell.

One of my cousins (the one who came to visit) just had a baby! He's a daddy to a baby girl named Rana. I am so happy for him and I can't wait to see his beautiful daughter this august. So I have been making baby Rana a pretty baby blanket. It's my first and I am happy how it's turning out.

more good news.

I applied for a diploma course in Art and Design at Birmingham City University and I got accepted! I am so thrilled! There were so many complications when I applied that I almost gave up. I had to do a portfolio on such short notice plus it was a first for me in doing so as well and when I didn't hear from the uni for a couple of months I panicked and rang them up. Apparently they didn't even receive it and I had to email them again last week. In the end all went well and I wasn't even required to do an interview.  

I want to take this opportunity to thank my fellow indie classmates and teachers for inspiring me to take up this course. Without you I wouldn't have had faith in myself to do go back to uni. I really appreciate the motivation you have given me when I felt down. I love you guys!

It's gonna be tough going back to studying though. I am pretty nervous about it cos the last time I did was when I was in uni almost a decade ago. Dunno how my brain's gonna handle it but I am sure I will be fine. I am so excited!
