the beginning of summer '10!

summer 2010 has begun with lots of lovely good weather, thankfully, the struggle to find employment, unfortunately (the inability to find that is, despite the massive number of jobs i've applied for), and the departure of a few friends from home :( three have left for the whole summer (two going abroad, another going to edinburgh), which is a shame.

however.. fun times on the horizon..

15th-18th July = Latitude Festival!

It's in Suffolk, which is a pretty long drive for me, but the line-up is immense: belle & sebastian (eee! so excited!), laura marling, vampire weekend, florence and the machine, noah & the whale, mumford & sons, etcetc.

and i'll be visiting Chesire soon too hopefully :)

what does everyone else have planned for the summer?

sorry that I haven't exactly been committed to this very much of late at all, first year seeemed to go by so fast! not entirely sure where it all went.

in a bid to get up-to-date with current affairs and all that, I'm currently reading 'Globalization and its Discontents' by Joseph Stiglitz (recommended reading for politics next year). actually really readable, even though strictly speaking it's about economics. Stiglitz explains everything very well, I'm enjoying it a lot more than I expected to :)

anyhoo - hope everyone's enjoying the good weather if they have it - and if not - just enjoying everything generally, life is grand! :)x
