Since my last journal was Christmas... its been a while.
Its my birthday in 3 days! I'll have reached the grand old age of 22. Though I'm too busy to have a proper birthday this year. I'm postponing all that til after I graduate.
Speaking of graduation. Holy smokes, its so close now. The light is at the end of the tunnel. The end is nigh! Its nearly over.
Soon... soon I'll be going home to real food... I'll be able to rediscover what life is like without constantly being stressed.
The stress leading up to the finals is doing strange things to me. My body is packing in, bit by bit. Though, I'm not stressed in my head, per say, the rest of me is. I'm just hoping all these stress symptoms will disappear when the source of my stress is gone. It surely will.
I miss deviantart, I haven't had a chance to be on here and catch up with everyone in so so long.
But soon... it'll be OVER. I can go home and kick my feet up. Oh its the simple things I can't wait for. My mam's (
) home cooked mince and tatties. The thought of being able to have time to even go to the gym is a heavenly thought. That's right- I'm even craving exercise.
Asides feeling like I've been dragged by the feet through a spiky hedge and I've somehow managed to ingest the hedge and torn up my insides in the process- things are going okay!
The two films I'm working on are progressing well. The 'Forest' film and 'Fearg Na Mara' will be finished
and shown at my degree show on the 17th May.
I'd post the links to the films, but I have in the past and they are due to be updated- so they aren't that exciting to look at just now.
So if anyone is around in Scotland, the degree show opens to the public on the 18th. The exhibition is on for a week @ Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, Dundee. CHECK THIS OUT-
I'm on a website!

More exciting things!
Over the last few days I've put together a mini portfolio book to have at my degree show section. Click here to preview the book
I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. I can't wait for it to arrive. I hope other people are making similar things for their exhibition spaces. More than anything I wanted to make a book as a keep sake from university to remind myself of what I've achieved whilst being here.
After my final hand-in, my life plans are to return home, furiously train for a full time textile job I secured a few months ago (the luckiest girl alive to have a job before graduating! I'm so so so grateful and relieved to have it). I'm doing this job for the next year, filling in for someone else. Then after that, I'm not sure what I'm going to do with myself. The world will be my oyster.
I'll have time to save up some money. I'm hoping to buy a Wacom Cintiq as a 'to me, from me' present for finishing university. Well, that's my excuse anyway XD
I'll get back to doing art for me, which means much more deviantart, much more roaming about the hills taking photos and posting on my blog.
You'd be better finding out what I'm up to by following my blog than deviantart at the moment

Neehoo, I hope you all are getting on okay. Anyone else doing university, I can throughly sympathise. Just keep thinking of your favourite food waiting for you at the end. A bath full of it. You can do eet!
