|Journal page | My fave treats and reward for finishing my first year at LCA!|
I handed in my last project of first year today and it feels so goooood! The year isn't really over just yet as I still have a report to write up and a presentation to err, present, but my actual arty-textile side is done for now until I move in to second year in September. That means summer is very close and I couldn't be happier!
I haven't been journaling as much as I would've liked to but here's a couple of my favourite pages at the minute. I'm still trying to complete a roll of film and I don't want to be that person who always makes excuses but I find it really hard to take pictures whilst I'm busy with uni stuff, I guess my mind is busy elsewhere leading an actual social life and creating wonderful things. I'm really proud of everything I've made this year, it's all very me. There's no project I regret and would want to hide right now and that makes me really happy. I'm definitely going in the right direction!
Sometimes I look at my blog and want to make it more personal and lifestyle, then other days I just want to stick to sharing my work but I think there's quite an OK balance. Blogging has become a strange world now, it's not as small as it used to be and it kind of suprises me when people don't have a blog, I assume it's just something everyone does. It also suprises me how competitive and money grabbing it's becoming. Some people really want this as their full time job but their posts are so rushed and small and meaningless. If your blog isn't making people think, or sharing something new then is there any point? You're sharing 'how to blog tips' to help other bloggers? Do what? Who cares? I love it when people read my blog, but I also just love to record my art and my life. Reading Ellie's post on blogging made me remember that this could be my stepping stone to bigger things. Sometimes I feel like giving up because I don't get a certain amount of comments and my follower count never seems to rise but then I remember how stupid that would be... #deepthoughtsover
