*happy dance and a slightly sad jig*

Yeah, this post is a bittersweet one. I've got good news and bad news for those who might read my blog.

The good news is that I passed all my classes at the University, and that I am graduating with a 2.1 BA(Hons) degree. I have to say that I am very pleased. I was hoping for a 2.1. I never thought I would graduate with a first, so I set my aims at the next best thing.

I'm looking forward to the graduation ceremony, with the cape and hat and everything. We don't really do that kind of thing in Norway. I've already ordered the cape and everything. The only thing missing would be my parents. it would be really great if they could attend the ceremony, but I realize they might not be able to because of the distance and the economy being what it is.

The bad news...I have to postpone my wedding. Moving back home to Norway in September is going to dig a huge whole in our personal savings. It's actually going to eat up all of our savings. We have been struggling so hard to save up as much as possible, but it's not going to be enough for deposits and moving costs and new furniture. Least of all our wedding. I have to admit it made me quite sad having to postpone as it was one of the things I was looking most forward to this year. But Ces't la vie right. It's only one more year and I can wait. And in the meantime I can do a bit of self-pity corset sale shopping. ( FIY).

Beyond that I'm going to London next week to attend the New Blood exhibition in Shoreditch at the old Truman Brewery. For once we've booked an expensive hotel room so we could at least have a comfortable night of sleep and relaxation. Some of my works will be fatured at the University of Wolverhampton stand, so if you're attending New Blood please do drop by.

Until next time
Anita Night
