Life imitates art far more than art imitates life.

Greetings from an English 21-year-old (recent) BA Architecture graduate/survivor. Currently looking for work in an architect's practice. I adore The Smiths, tea, classic films, reading, poetry, autumn, wine and Italy. I have too many improbable ambitions.

Two interviews in two days, and an initial telephone interview this morning. Talk about hitting the ground running straight after a holiday!

Back today from sailing the wonderful Baltic sea… England looking as miserable as ever… Going to be reliving probably the best holiday I’ve been on with some pictures over the next few days.

Well, I’m off on a cruise until the 13th to see a part of Europe I’ve never seen before - Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Estonia - and even St. Petersburg, Russia. Very exciting. Take care, followers, see you in 12 days with some hopefully more exciting posts.

Going to my first ever wedding tomorrow, and in typical Jess fashion I only just bought a gift today. Now I’m semi-organised I can at least look forward to it…

I’ve had another two interview offers come through, which was exciting yesterday… but one of them has offered me nearly half the salary that the first guys did, and the other one is quite a bit further away than I had hoped for.

Interview went well; I think I would really enjoy working there, but they’ve got a couple more interviews to do, so I’ll try not to get my hopes up.

Nothing like a bit of rambling to take one’s mind off job hunting.

Some pictures from my unit’s part in the end-of-year exhibition this year. The whole thing looked great and we get to keep the frames(!)

Just a quick update; I think I got a 1st for Design (compare that to last year’s 2:2 and I’m still quite stunned at how much I’ve improved). I’ve also been nominated for a prize, so that’s quite a lovely end to my university career. 
Meanwhile, I still have yet to hear from any potential employers…..

God damn, now I’ve finished my degree, and there’s an interim before working on the exhibition/finding a job, I want to read all the books and watch all the films but I don’t know where to start; architecture has frazzled my brain.

Casually finishing my degree in three days’ time.
