Shot of Melbourne from Hawthorn

It’s fast approaching, although some Melbourne days would make you think that it’s a loooong way off.

Truth beholds, summer is on its way, and in fact it’s only seven weeks away — I know, I swear it felt like winter was only last week – typical Melbourne.

This will be my first November/December in Melbourne, and I’ve heard there are plenty of things to do that this brilliant city and surrounds have to offer during the warmer months.

A camping trip with some mates from uni is in the books, and plenty of cider and beer I’m sure will be consumed at various venues across the city, but that’s all I have planned to do so far. I have six weeks between when I finish uni and head to Tasmania that I need to fill.

After discussing with my journalism tutor, I have decided to submit my article, The Ball Toss Between Belief and Disbelief, for the Media Super Student Journalist of the Year Awards 2012.

The awards are open to all students studying a communications, journalism, or any other media-related university courses. Entries can include a wide range of media, including: print, radio and TV. All must have been assessed by your university before entered.

The awards provides students with industry exposure and the winner is invited to the 57th Walkley Awards (imagine the ARIA awards for journalists) in Canberra.

The entry dates were 08/03 – 18/05, but were recently extended to 25/05.

*fingers crossed*

Ben.
