Aaaand uni begins

One week down and 13 more to go (I think). The Melby weather was very very very indecisive last week which explains why I caught the flu and missed out on some lectures and a class….or maybe it’s because I have a crappy immune system, dang. This week the tables turned with the weather finally behaving like it should. Thank God for Autumn!  You know it’s gonna be a good week when there’s a little bit of sunshine and it doesn’t get above 30 degrees at least. Last week I had lots of issues with my timetable so it turns out I had to change my jewellery design class to another elective called “Ideation of the object”, it’s a similar practice to jewellery design however it’s more about creating new ideas and drawing out 3D objects. I went to my first class of that elective yesterday and instantly got excited when I saw chunks of clay on each table. I haven’t touched clay since high school! We were asked to make small sculptures in response to several pieces of music using only our hands, then translate them into drawings.

On a random note, one issue I’ve had for the past 2 years as a uni student is that I’m constantly finding ways to reduce the amount of items I carry to uni. Anything to avoid carrying a heavy handbag really. As a design student people assume I carry chunky sketchbooks and a gajillion art supplies plus a tablet and a laptop. Truth is, I don’t. I like to be practical and I’m kinda OCD with what’s in my bag and how I organise items. So if you catch me randomly checking my bag, you now know why. I carry a pencil case, plastic folder, a sketchbook that I use for lecture notes, a rmit diary and a water-colour set. The rest are my everyday needs: a power bank, tissues, phone, keys, earphones, glasses and a pocket-sized comb for those bad hair days. And yet all of this is STILL a lot to carry! But nothing compared to the previous years thank goodness.

Coffee art

Not a coffee lover myself but my friend is and this is what she does in her spare time at work. Worthy of sharing with the world? I think so. http://instagram.com/helenl92
