WEEK 45

THAT'S A WRAP! As of yesterday morning, I have officially handed in my last ever deadline at Falmouth University. 

Am I relieved? most definitely.

Was the experience of handing in anti-climactic? Very much so.

Now it's just the prolonged wait for results day, but until then, it's time to celebrate and make the most of this beautiful place I've had the luxury of calling home over the past 3 years. To be completely honest, I still feel as though I need to be cracking on with something? Pretty sure I get this uncertainty after every deadline which I feel is completely normal for every student...or at least I hope it is? 

Next week should definitely be a good chill out as my fellow Northerner's are venturing down to visit for a week. They say it's to see me, but really I think they just want to explore Cornwall for a week. Here's to the next few weeks anyhow and what it may entail!

Make sure to re-visit the Yolk Collective Fundraiser as we are still trying to raise a few more pennies before the final show in June at Free Range.

WEEK 45 - 09/05/2018

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!
