Life feels much calmer now than it has recently. So I am recovering from the end of my degree and settling in to the summer months. I graduated last week so got to wear my funny outfit, walk over a stage and collect a handy piece of paper.

I have now seen The Amazing Spiderman…twice. It is a very entertaining watch, it’s funny but with heart, and Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone are very good. My fairly unreasonable complaint would probably be that there are too many spiders (especially in 3D), but I know not everyone feels the same way about eight legged creatures. I have also seen The Five Year Engagement with Emily Blunt and Jason Segel. It is a really good film; it can be uncomfortable at times but also funny, sometimes simultaneously. I think its appeal comes from its more honest to life approach to the Rom-Com, but it is still a movie, unrealistic things will happen too.

I have been moved home for three weeks now, I think my visits at the weekend have eased my transition and I am very much enjoying the company and the catering. I was looking forward to race for life last weekend but it was postponed for eight weeks due to Hylands Park in Chelmsford being waterlogged from all the rain.

I am currently working in Clearing, commuting through Stratford and getting nervous about my travel arrangements. On the Jubilee line the other night they recommended we change at West Ham if possible because Stratford was extremely busy. It wasn’t what I would call extremely busy but it was a little busier than usual and much louder because of all the shouting Olympic stewards. My trains were delayed yesterday due to speed restrictions between Liverpool Street and Stratford, altered services and heat troubles.
