In March 2017 I turned 30, started my next class (packaging design), took photos and tried to kickstart the old ‘study brain’. I have also been renovating my mum’s bedroom (I swear I will get the house completed eventually).
I am trying to be kind to myself, and do small things that incite positive vibes. It can’t be smooth sailing all the time and you can learn a lot about yourself when the waters get a little choppy.
Turning 30 wasn’t a big deal for me. There is some small part of me, that wishes a younger me held the same perspective I do now. If that was the case, I wouldn’t have been able to learn the same things and would likely be very different. Older me will be thinking the same thing! Haha.
I completed my third week in my next University class, which focusses on Packaging Design. It’s quite a big area, with packaging playing a monumental role in our everyday lives. We have a lot of activities to complete each week, but I am enjoying it. Even if there hasn’t been a lot of input from others.
I have continued to use my snazzy macro lens to take photos. At the moment most of the photographs have all been nature based. I would like to try exploring the use of objects as well. Below are some of my latest shots. You can view more on my Flickr.
Where art thou study brain??
I have been feeling a bit tired and less motivated than normal. I am hoping that my study brain will kick back in and I can shuffle out of holiday mode. I am trying to be kind to myself, and do small things that incite positive vibes. It can’t be smooth sailing all the time and you can learn a lot about yourself when the waters get a little choppy.
If you have been following my blog for a while, you may be aware that I have (slowly) been renovating my parent’s house. I did my room first, the kitchen and my mums office. I am now onto her bedroom. I have sanded the floor and need to do some sanding on the walls (where a wardrobe was removed). In the previous rooms, I had used a board sander. But it was so annoying because it would overheat all the time. This time I used a small hand (mouse) sander. I finished it in a much shorter time. When I was buying more sanding pads, a man at Bunnings was so surprised I had done a whole floor with a small sander. If it works!
- What did you do in March?
- Have any plans for April?
- What do you do if you’re feeling a bit tired and unmotivated?
