Back at uni

I started back at Sheffield University on Monday.  I'm doing a 1-year masters in Broadcast Journalism and so far it's been fairly intense.  I'm in from 9 or 10 every morning til late in the afternoon.  At the moment I'm doing a module on law for journalists, one on ethics, one on researching stories and one on broadcast techniques for TV and radio.  We also have some guest lecturers coming throughout the semester, and the first will be BBC's Dan Walker, a former student of journalism at Sheffield University.  There are around 25 people on my course and we're all in our 20s.  We're all getting on well, and we've been enjoying the Indian summer the UK is getting at the moment.  The weather is really hot right now, meaning it's been possible to get a suntan in late September this year.

As my weekdays are so intense I won't be working at Pizza Hut much during the week, but I will still be working there at the weekends.  This Saturday just gone I had the Saturday off though, and I went to Hillsborough to see Sheffield Wednesday play Exeter City.  That was our fifth home game of the season, and we'd won the previous four, so before the game I put a fiver on Wednesday winning again.  We played really well, the best I've seen them in a long time, and ended up winning 3-0.  Playing well at home is the complete opposite of last season, so if we can sort out our away form we might be onto a winner.
