Sophie's diary: Week Two

Over the summer, Sophie will be keeping a record of her thoughts and achievements as Gloucestershire's Blast reporter.

Sophie's profile page contains more information about her.

Week Two

Woah, this week’s been so tiring!

It’s the end of the end of the week and I’ve only just written my article due to the fact I could only go and interview people at the end of the week. I’m not used to doing things so last minute, so I’m probably going to go a bit mental later to let out my stress, y’know, do a weird little dance or something.


On Saturday I went to Beauchamp House in Gloucester to talk to those involved with the Gloucester Academy of Music and to see what had been achieved on the 'Intermediate Orchestra' course.

I had a really good time as all the students were really friendly, several people were even convinced that they knew me, despite the fact they’d never seen me before and lived miles away.

It was nice to catch up with the organisers at G.A.M. as well, as I used to go there when I was younger.


Earlier this week I put up my first article about Hugo Johnson, a local photographer. I’ve had a lot of positive feedback about the article so I’m really happy.

There are still a few issues with some of the photos in the article, which seem to refuse to show up on several computers, including mine, yet show up on the majority of others. I apologise if you can’t get the photos of the CD rack, barbed wire, corridor - it’s a mystery, yet to be solved!

I also had to write a first person piece for a local newspaper earlier this week, telling my tale of the Blast experience so far.

Anyway I’m gonna leave it there, before I fall asleep at the computer. Check back next week for more of my wonderful adventures...
