It’s time to take a break..

As you might have noticed that in the last few months, I have been blogging less and less..
I have finally got to the point that I think that there’s a need for a break from blogging for a while! I am trying to concentrate on teaching myself Animation, so that I can hopefully get onto MA Animation in September and I am working full time at the same time!

I feel like there’s not enough hours in the day for me to teach myself and relax fully!
I will be back writing at some point, and I might even post the odd one or two posts but for now I need to be concentrating fully!

Where have I been? What’s my next step?

I know that I have been away for the last week without any posts, but I ended up going away to Walt Disney World for the week at VERY last minute (two hours before my friends family left!). I had such a great time as usual and I didn’t want to leave!

On the other hand, I feel like I have come across a route that I want to take in my life – Animation. I have always wanted to study Animation, but I always thought that I should take the safer routes.. It turns out that I either want to go back to university to study it, or teach myself (what I’m currently doing now). I am going to see how I get along with learning by myself and then I will see what my options are from there!

But that’s it for my short update!

My University Experience.

I think it’s fair to say, that University was the best choice I ever made. Not only to graduate in BA Hons Graphic Communication, but for the experience and the friends that I have made.
It’s a bitter sweet ending to university, as I reflect back and think of the amazing times I’ve had, but then realising the fact that it’s all over now.

Although, I have had one of the best times of my life at university. I have met so many new people, gained some of the closest friends, had some of the funniest moments and I have become a much stronger, independent and mature person (believe it or not..!)

If that isn’t enough, I have even had the opportunity to travel with university. I went to New York and Tokyo and they were such incredible places, which have left me with some amazing memories for life.

We’ve had ups and downs, stress and tears throughout the three years, but it was definitely worth all the hard work and experiences that have come from it!
I wouldn’t have changed it for anything!

(Apologies for the mass of photos, but they were more valuable than words – in order from Year One, Two and Three).

I have graduated!

So, that is it! That is the end of my three years at university, and I can say that it has been one of the best experiences!
I will be writing a ‘My University Experience‘ post tonight, so it will be up tomorrow.

I graduated in St David’s Hall in Cardiff on Thursday, which was a really nice venue. I was getting excited for graduation weeks ago, then I started to dread it incase I fall over – but it was actually an amazing day and I’m sad that it’s already over!
It was a really nice day, super sunny and it was amazing to see some of my friends (couldn’t see too many as we were so busy) before we all leave, as most people have moved home already.

We had tears of happiness, sunshine, Red Hot Buffet and such a good day with friends and family.
Here are a few photos of my graduation day, I wore a Vivienne Westwood Anglomania Tartan Aztec Dress, with my Vivienne Westwood Melissa Lady Dragon Heart Sandals.

Also: 46 Days until Australia!

An update on my ‘New Years Resolutions’

It is pretty much, almost, sort of, half way through the year already – which is pretty crazy! So, I thought that I would share a quick update on my New Years Resolutions (like I said before, I have never really had one but I thought I would just set myself some personal goals!)

Get an organiser (Blog/YouTube based) [DONE]
Blog more often and on a regular basis [SO FAR.. DONE]
– Same for my YouTube channel (YouTube.com/nuggetstumpblog)
– Graduate from university
– Visit a new place
Get a job after graduation [ACTUALLY MOVING TO AUSTRALIA NOW]
– Try the things that I wouldn’t expect myself to do
Try to remain eating healthier [SO FAR SO GOOD!]
– Reach 100 miles on my nike+ app by July [NOWHERE NEAR..]
Use up more body products that I have had hanging around (body butters) [DEFINITELY BEEN GETTING THROUGH SOME OF THESE!]
– Complete tattoo piece on shoulder blade.
– Visit smaller shops that I’ve never been to.
Get a snazzy blog design! [I doubt it’s getting any better than the current one!]

 

In addition to this update, I might add a few more targets that I want to hit by the time I move away to Australia!
– Visit a lot more places
– Take so many more photos with my DSLR
– Make the most of my friends, before I go

What were your resolutions? And have you stuck to them?
