Life // Heading Back To Uni

Monday, September 07, 2015


Today I started back at Uni for which was the last first day of doing my Undergraduate course in Visual Communications and Media Designs! Okay, yeah fair enough, I technically only had my first day last year at Uni since I've done a 2+2 but that's not the point! 

Anyway, this year is going to be BIG! It means doing my Honors project and needing to start looking for a real job in the real worlds which also means working on my portfolio and even more so (hopefully) a website at some point! 

But, this isn't a blog post...rant about the future, it's about the now and what I'm doing this year! So since I'm away to start doing my Honors project I've been thinking about different topics or areas to look into to focus my project on. At the moment I'm thinking of basing it off my #Create365 project (it is still happening!) and looking into some areas that have been highlighted to me even more since starting this like Art Therapy, Adult Colouring Books, zentangles and mandalas.

I'm not entirely 100% on how I'm going to focus this but I have been thinking of along the lines of "How does the creation within art and design factor into the happiness of people" or something along those lines. If I focus on this kind of question I want to see how people feel after doing things like just normal creative things and seeing how much their mood changes during the process of it. But I also want to focus on how as a person, a creative, student and designer can mix these things together and produce design work that I am happy with (and can fit in my portfolio well) too as there have been plenty projects over the past 3 years that I haven't liked the final outcome.

Anyhoo, these are just kind of initial thoughts and thoughts I will need to add to my Honours Project blog soon! But I'll update here maybe in a few weeks, in the mean time I'll be doing my main updating of my project over at: www.LH-honoursproject.tumblr.com/

  1. Good luck going into your final year, Lauren! Also that sounds like a super interesting question to base your studies around – I find it amazing how my relationship with my work can give me such emotional highs and lows, and I'm sure so many others will have lots of interesting stories to share regarding their own experiences!

  4. Sounds super exciting and scary at the same time, I hope this year goes well for you & your honours project goes fabulously. Also, I will be interested to see how your Art Therapy/Colouring book question turns out, something that I am also interested in.

  6. your project idea sounds so interesting! you can definitely focus on how creation of art and design makes people happier/relaxed etc, but also there's good counter arguments like when people aren't satisfied with their own work and how that can be stressful! i wish you the best of luck! x

  8. Your project sounds really cool! And I so know what you mean about this year being crazy. This semester I'm writing my history senior thesis, next semester I have to write my english senior thesis, and after that boom real world time. So scary and exciting all at once!
