I can't really believe that I've finished my first year of art school. On one hand, it's flown by, on the other, it's been slow going and a lot of hard work. I wanted to share a few photos of my Final Major Project - you can see a few more here - and a couple of thoughts, now that first year is over.
It's been a fun year, amongst the hard work, the late nights and early mornings, juggling schoolwork with paid work and moving house and trying to socialise. I've met some lovely people and thrown a few dinner parties and now and again, I've managed to surprise myself. There were a fair few moments where I wanted to give up and some days where I did just stay in bed, but that's okay. I handed all my work in, on time, even though three weeks before my final first year deadline I really just wanted to crawl into bed and stay there until it was over.
I'm glad it's over. I'm going to work harder next year and prioritise things differently. But for now, it's done and I'm on summer break until the end of September. I haven't had this much time to myself for a long time, I'm going to keep very busy with knitting projects and catching up with old friends.
