The Month That Was: March 2016
In March 2016, I started my next class at Uni, turned 29 and almost finished the kitchen.
- Started my second class at Uni, which has a focus on many traditional design formats. Such as sketching, tracing, model making, collage. It has a main focus on doing things by hand, and not using computer software. This has been a challenge, because I am so used to using a computer and Illustrator or Photoshop. I have been learning a lot, which is great.
- I turned 29, and was pretty okay about that.
- I got my results from my first class at Uni and received a grade of 94% and high distinction, which put my GPA at 4.0!
- I have continued the kitchen renovation and I am very close to being finished! Hopefully next month I am able to write up a full recap with the finished look!
- Have continued to be soda free, and still loosing weight.
I’m thankful for…
Number 13 on my 30 before 30 was to create an appreciation list of all the things I am thankful for.
When you really begin to think of the things you have, there is a lot to be thankful for. For a basic example; internet, a computer, phone or tablet, a home, food to eat, water to drink, family, friends, clothing, education, work and endless small and large things in between. We all have unique circumstances and may not have the exact same things or living environment as other people. These differences are what make the things in your life to appreciate, personal to you. I think it’s a positive exercise to focus on the things in your life that are good and to appreciate them.
The Month That Was: September 2015
I have decided to start a new segment on my blog where I will recap life, updates and random things in ‘The Month That Was’.
September 2015 wasn’t a busy month, but I still managed to fill it with some slightly productive things while I wait for University to start again in November. The most annoying thing has been the weather. It has been cooler than I expected so the drying time on the floorboard gloss was taking soooooo long. Thankfully, as September is ending, the days are getting warmer, so I am hopeful October will be the month when my bedroom is finished!
Pros and Cons of living in the country
Living in the country can be a magical place, but it can also be a little challenging at other times.
I thought it would be interesting to share my experience of living in a small country town (population around 350) so other people can get a glimpse of a possibly different lifestyle.
While you had not been working properly for the past twenty days it had been a challenge. I do apologise that I swore at you, called you names and generally fired some hate in your direction. However, it has been difficult as I realised how much I have become dependent on you (study, entertainment, social, creative, all the things). So, here are some of the changes I have had to make and things I have been doing to amuse myself without you.
