Creative Vado HD 3rd Gen

Bought myself one of these yesterday.

Really excited and just want it to arrive so I can start filming.

I spent so much time procrastinating yesterday and deciding whether to get this or the older one from Amazon. In the end I managed to buy this one for £49.99 which I think is a bargain 🙂

I’ve just managed to get myself a stereo mic and gorilla pod from ebay for £2.70 and £3.50 which I’m also really please with 🙂

Hopefully I’ll be able to tell you how good it is once it’s turned up!

This week I want to buy…

This week I finally have some money but it is never enough. However, since I have sorted my work experience for May and will be working here… http://www.provapr.com I need to get some smart business clothes and this is what I want.

To start with I have been desperate for some trousers like this for so long! I’m not sure if I’ll get these ones though because I’ve seen some similar ones in Zara. And I’m also not sure about the colour because I’d like some which are a bit lighter and a bit shorter; but I suppose I could just turn up the bottoms!

I might try to get something with shorter sleeves though as it’s probably going to be quite warm in May and navy probably isn’t the best way to go either…

Finally I really want these shoes! Only £15 as well, currently on sale at debenhams, but by Red Herring. Definitely want this style and I think they’ll be perfect for my drive to Warwick and if I end up on my feet all day I wont be sorry I got these! Although I’ll probably be sat at a computer all day so back up heels are a must.

I’m going to cheat today and head out to Primark first, if I can get these cheaper I will be very happy!

Work today

I have to leave for work in a couple of hours.

I work in a local garden centre (I know, the glamorous life of a journalist). I started there 3 years ago and I’ve quit twice but keep coming back.

I really cannot wait to have a proper, full time journalist job.

University Life

Although you may have noticed my writing isn’t particularly eloquent, I am actually studying journalism at university in Southampton.

At the moment, I’m trying to complete a research project about the role of journalists since Web 2.0 came about. The thing is, I’d rather get on with using Web 2.0 rather than writing about it. Even though I am…

The course is actually really great. It wasn’t my first choice and I was a bit apprehensive but I think this is the best placed I could have turned up.

The other problem is I need to make my option choices for next year but I really don’t know what’s best at the moment. Every year it’s another decision which will supposedly ‘shape my future career’. I’m sure I want to go into broadcast journalism, but I really love print.

One week to decide.
