Going Up in my world this month…
Dissertation-Themed Fun: I have finally handed it in !! Nearly two years on from choosing the title, Magritte has changed my life a little bit. However, I’m unbelievably disappointed that I didn’t find out about this Surrealist tea at Sotheby’s in time to go there. Who’s up for a Surrealist themed tea party?
Hybrid Computers (& Windows 8): I thought that this might distract me from work… but instead it’s kind of making it more fun! It’s pretty nice to read articles on anyway, and I have touch-screen air hockey so…. yeah. Bring on the revision :/.
End-of-term Creativity Returning: When I’m busiest is sometimes unexpectedly punctuated by bursts of creativity. So I have a couple of journal pages to share now, hooray! Although I can’t deny that ringing my family and being told about their mask-making and other creative projects doesn’t make me pine for my summers of DIY projects. Thank goodness for Pinterest boards to save my ideas on!
Getting through favourite series too fast! So Qi got me through my GCSEs, the Mighty Boosh through A-levels and now the Big Bang Theory through my dissertation final weeks. Instead of focusing on my odd tastes in television, just think how sad it is when you are just whizzing through your favourite program way too fast. Sad.
University-related brain-damage: Today I cycled to campus and forgot my keys AND purse. Perhaps the post-dissertation hangover left a permanent mark on my brain. Or maybe my brain is just so full it starts deleting things at random, like useful everyday short-term memory. All I know is that my capacity to function any more is being tested.
Job-hunting: What a big world it is out there, without a clear history-of-art-and-French-baker-creative-artsy-quirky-role-shaped-hole anywhere that I can see yet. One thing at a time for now… tea and shower are next on the list. Have a nice evening.
