A fresh start...

Me again...

..and can I say how relieved I am to have now handed in my final year dissertation.... YES! HANDED IN.. ON TIME... major kudos has been earned I think.

So.. now that leaves my final major project - the publication.

So far, I've been doing a little research into the market... how the publication is performing atm and all that, just casual stuff really. But one thing I really want to get focuses on is devising a theme for the next issue to be based around.

Ideas so far:

- Kaleidoscope: Metamorphisis, Transitions and Evolution... Change basically!
- Taboos & Fears: Playing on my old idea for a theme.. but developed further so that it includes challenging the boundaries, not sure if that quite makes sense... so i'm gonna go with 'pushing stereotypes'. Lol.

Need to get a few more down on paper today, and start 'reflecting' my progress in this journal we're supposed to keep for the duration of this.

Also, have to present all these ideas on Tues 26th (which actually counts towards the final grade), so am a bit nervous so just hope it all goes well and to plan!

I'm kind of in a strange place at the moment... lack of motivation.. so I guess i'll just have to push through it to get things done... I think when I finish my market research it will fizzle out a bit, as I find that part quite tiresome.

So, wish me luck...and with the new season of ANTM due to start and offer major distractions, I am praying I stay on track!!

As for work experience goes.. i've applied to all the publishers that I can physically find after weeks of scouring the internet, hopefully some will get back to me. If not, then hmmm I may be doomed. Bloody hope not though, so if there's anyone out there who can help, give me a buzz :-)

Thanking you!
