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!) Us Graphic Designers must be the hardest working kind of student!? 🙂
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 handy 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 🙂
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! 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 🙂 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 🙂 So all the other groups need to watch out! Let the competition commence….
