as the essay deadline day is fastly approaching and is normally where I let my grade down, I have been extra specially working very hard on trying not to fail. Libraries actually have information? Also came to realise that a lot of the art books on my shelf at home have lots of helpful information in. Who would have thought!
I have been finding this essay incredibly difficult to start, at 3500 words one of the longest pieces of writing I’ve ever written, and a week to write it. I mean I’ve been writing drafts but after a tutorial with the project lecturer I have a better idea of how to tackle it! And can’t wait for it to be over.
with all the essay writing and preparation for the art history modules I found it quite difficult to pick up the paint brush at the moment. But I need to always keep painting in my mind and practicing so I don’t get out of practice so I went out for a couple hours essay break and did a couple of studies, very calming for once which I think is shown in the paintings and has made me take a more calm approach to this essay!
unbelievably I managed to get my essay done, and it was time for my birthday treat, what was getting me through the week, seeing the kooks in concert. A band that originated from my town, and in my top 10. But haven’t yet seen them in concert. I like to have things to look forward to when doing my degree it’s like little rewards for everything I’m doing- and giving other elements of joy to my life. Which is very important for us to achieve our best. We must be in a good frame of mind, and it brings the best out of us.
the weekend in Cardiff, Christmas is approaching. Enjoying the winter wonderland. A very nice treat. Let’s just hope my essay is good enough.
