EURO 2012 excitement!
Hello everybody it’s Nicola joining you on this Friday afternoon.
I just had a mini panic because I realised I hadn’t written today’s blog, I was leaving it until nearer 5pm (when we normally finish) BUT as it’s Friday we finish at 4.30pm. EEK and it’s now 4.10pm so I best get on with it!!
Today started with a really useful one-to-one meeting with my manager. As interns and as new University employees we have to have a meeting every couple of weeks to check that everything has been going ok.
After that I had a day of general student finance emails and enquiries mixed in with some brief telephone calls. This was great, they do make the day fly by!
I’ve also been editing some of the slides for our fees and funding open day talk. Plus, I’ve been making some handy info sheets to have ready when someone calls about a particular problem.
I’m now officially a Walk the World team member WOOHOO. Emma and Hannah have blogged about this before. We are in teams and we wear pedometers to count how many steps we walk in a day. It’s a competition between people all around the world. So, I need to get around to inputting all my steps onto the website.
Hannah has been on annual leave today and she’s off on Monday too, I’m jealous of her lovely long weekend. Emma and Matt went on an event to West Notts College in Mansfield today. This was a mixture of student finance talks and a University of Lincoln information stand. That’s the first of MANY events we have over the next few weeks….we’ll soon see how this blog copes with us out of the office all the time!
The excitement is building…a little… in the office for tonight’s England game. Fingers crossed we win but after the depressing events of the World Cup a few years back, I’ve lost all hope really. IF we get out of the group stage then I’ll start to get a bit more excited. Sorry! Although I’m predicting a 2-1 win with Welbeck scoring both (says the Man United fan in me).
Ok have a wonderful weekend everyone. Lets hope this stormy weather GOES AWAY!
