WEEK 47

What. A. Week.
Things have suddenly got a lot quieter within our little house as our Northern lodgers have left the building, but not without taking in what Falmouth and some of Cornwall had to offer. 

In truth, we got far more visits in than I thought we would; from Chapelporth to see the mines to Godrevy for a paddle, all the way up the Northern coastline to Bedruthan Steps, one of my personal favourite locations that I was determined to get them to one way or another. Among them, we also squeezed in a new location that I hadn't been to yet called Trevose Head Lighthouse which is 100% worth a visit if your ever in the area of Padstow.

Overall, a great week with great company that I don't think could have gone any better! 

au revoir amigos, see you in July x 

WEEK 47 - 23/05/2018

WEEK 39

Well...I should probably start with, Happy New Year Everyone!

That instantly indicates how long it has been since I wrote a post. Don't say I didn't warn you that I'd suck at the weekly updates, it's written in the intro! That's the intro a wrote just over a year ago now on the 1st of March 2017 when I started this delightful little blog. I'm still determined to reach that '52 Week' mark, one way or another!

Anyhow, the last two months have flown by with a necessity to put full priority towards university and my final project; a continuation of the latest work I shared on my website, 'Boundaries'. This work in progress still remains a personal exploration, but more so towards my relationship with the representations of masculinity created by mass media and the effects they are having on mental health and self-esteem within young men in the 21st century. The practical side is moving rather slowly at the moment with less than two months till I leave university, but I feel confident with the approach of the concept. Fingers crossed the visuals I create will lead me in a positive direction and get me ready for the Free Range in June!

On another note, The Beast from the East (or 'Storm Emma') brought inches worth of glorious white snow this week causing a fair bit of havoc....glorious! The last time Cornwall had proper snow was 10 years ago, hence why I never expected to see any in my time down here. None the less, my housemates and I took full advantage of the disruption, resulting in indoor snowball fights and treks to the Stables as you can't let bad weather get in the way of a good old pint!

According to my calculations, I'm currently 9 weeks behind schedule on the blog, which means I'll continue to tackle this little project of mine into the first week of June which I feel will be a nice place to end...Unless I decide to continue afterwards? 

Who Knows!
