Apprentice 2

Hey everyone!!!

Its October! Nearly Halloween!!! We are in for a spooky night at the museum. Make sure you get yourself up because its going to be a great night. Certainly a great opportunity to get dressed up.
I am really looking forward to it.
I can't believe my interview was on Halloween last year. I feel as though I have been at the museum for a lifetime.

Next week Rolf from college is coming to do an observation and he will also be talking to Marky Mark and Little Richard. That should be good because Rolf says that I need an observation with me doing a session with a school and funnily enough there is a school on Tuesday so that is the perfect opportunity for an observation.

See you all later.
