New Job…New Mindset

Last month I was really happy to have started my new job as a Template Designer at an established company, that develops Email Signature Templates.

It’s been a learning curve and I am still learning new things everyday, the working day is also different each time. I come into the office every morning and never know what’s in store for the day.

I absolutely love it!

My driving has also improved, apart from my mock test (…. yeah… forgetting that ever happened….) and I’m feeling really happy and confident about the big bad roundabouts!!!!!!!

It’s strange to think this time last year I was about to start my journey to and from Slough everyday… working just round the corner from home is in my opinion, loads better and my mindset is definitely stronger and happier.

Freshers Week

So, this week has been an interesting one.

I had my induction on Tuesday, introducing me to my final year units and dissertation. (Research paper and visual outcome)

I have decided to go on the shorter option for the dissertation, so from Monday I have 12 weeks to write 2500 – 4000 words and produce a visual outcome. Planning my time has never seemed so important and mind blowing. My other units this year look interesting too, Major Project in Graphic Design is in two parts over the year, the first being research and development and the second being the outcome. The others aim to get me work ready for the industry.

In all honesty, I am anxious not to mention a little scared of the future. It’s my last year so I got to make it count as much as I can. Beating those 2:1s from last year will be a tricky one. I know I can do it but it’s the problem of executing it.

The other bit is I spent two days at Freshers Fair, recruiting new students into the Circus Society. This was a good opportunity to meet people and sell our society. I also got a few freebies such as a sombrero, and some student vouchers for restaurants.

I hope these nerves and terrors go away when I get stuck into things.

We shall see
