Fresh(ers) Start

What a month September has been! I have missed blogging, but it’s been so busy it’s been hard to find the time to explain everything!!

A new chapter in my life (as cheesy as it sounds) is starting – Hello Lincoln!

I moved in on Sunday, managing to fit an unbelievable amount of stuff in my mum’s car – it was jam packed! I’m still not properly unpacked… half of my stuff is stationery or Graphicy stuff!

Anyway… We have been to a couple of ‘lectures’ this week and have been given our timetable, aswell as another project! (Oh, I didn’t even explain about the last project actually! We were given a summer project to brand ourselves and make a badge… I will blog about that separately!) Β Us Graphic Designers must be the hardest working kind of student!? πŸ™‚

We were given a sketchbook with University of Lincoln BA (Hons) Graphic Design foil blocked onto it (makes me feel like I’m part of the club now! Haha), also a pocket book which I’m sure will come in handyΒ and a folder of useful email addresses and a LSAD zine type thing called Hootenanny which has some work from the class that have just graduated from Lincoln. Very nice πŸ™‚

Oh and who wants to see my amazing room? (It’s not actually this tidy at the moment – considering it’s quite a small space I’m finding it hard to keep it tidy!):

You will notice there’s something NEW… I am no longer a PC, but a mac now! Β Still getting used to it but gradually converting to apple ways!

Here is all the free stuff I got from the Fresher’s Fayre:

I think I did quite well… enough money off coupons to last me forever probably, a decent amount of sweets and a blow up magic 8 ball!

I cooked my first Uni meal.. Spag Bol πŸ™‚ Didn’t poison anyone (Cooked for Bobbins and Dani)… although did burn the Garlic Bread (after the fire safety meeting too – oops, but no casualties phew!)

Oh actually I lie about the ‘no casualties’ thing – one casualty! When I was chopping the onion up I snapped my knife haha

But basically… I LOVE Lincoln. Having such a great time here and can’t wait to get stuck in with the work!

Our course has been split into 4 groups and I’m in Group C – aka the BEST group πŸ™‚ So all the other groups need to watch out! Let the competition commence….
