This beautiful little cygnet was photographed yesterday, and isn't he gorgeous? I absolutely adore Cambridge and I am praying like absolute mad that I can get on the course - it would mean the absolute world to me! The houses are lovely, the architecture is amazing, the university is beautiful and modern ... I've just fallen head over heels in love with Cambridge! Everybody cycles, walks or rows (apart from those who drive or take the train/bus) and it just seems to be a lovely place. I'm sure there's a "bad" area but, if there is, I've yet to find it.

Today I had my interview and audition, and I think it went incredibly well! I had to get up for 9 am, which wasn't too pleasant as it was grey and manky, and had a rather ... adequate breakfast. When I say adequate, I mean I had a slice of hard plastic cheese, a slice of wet turkey and a mediocre cup of tea. We managed to get the bus on time and made it to Anglia Ruskin University with ten minutes to spare! I was met by the course leader, a lovely lady who put me and the other candidates right at ease.

We went to the Music Therapy clinic, which is really beautiful, and had a brief discussion about the course structure, work load, clinical placements (in the second semester we take on patients - eep!!!) and other 'housekeeping' matters. After that, it was the experiental group improvisation, and I managed to surprise myself with how well my improvisation went, especially as I'm usually rather dreadful at it! The group gelled really well, and despite only having one man, we did really well!

As for my interview, well that was wonderful! I did end up telling the interviewers my entire life story, but I managed to link it to the future so I think it went positively - and my audition went tremendously! Who needs to practice, eh? Well, perhaps if I had ... no, I'm joking - I chose pieces that I could play standing on my head so that I wouldn't make a fool of myself, mostly because the lecturers had asked for something that showed my potential rather than my ability. Thank Allah for that, eh? It went well and I should know about the results in a week's time or so.

I also met a fellow hijabi on the bus to Anglia Ruskin, which was lovely - we had a brief chat about her time there, my time there and what we were there for. It was lovely to not only talk to a fellow hijabi, but to see so many hijabis walking about in Cambridge - mind you, since Cambridge boasts 6 mosques (I thought it was 4 but apparently Google says there are 6!) it is not surprising!

Tomorrow I start my volunteer training at Leeway Domestic Abuse and Violence, and I cannot wait! Finally I will be able to do something worthwhile with my free time, and fill at least two days with helping those in need. Today also marks mine and Jonathan's 28th month together, which is amazing. I love him so much it's unreal.
