A New Year Means New Adventures

“Let us step into the night and pursue that flighty temptress, adventure.” 

It's a new year, one that is looking to be exciting and full of new experiences and adventures, I've already been on one to Berlin, you can read about it over on my photography blog. I thought I'd catch you up on everything since the new year began. 

Firstly, let us talk about blogmas. The last term was a busy one, yet somehow whilst I was at university I managed to keep up with blogmas but the second I returned home it all fell to pieces. I think it was because at University I had created a routine whereas when I went home that routine fell apart especially since I always posted at night but when I was home I worked in the evenings so it became difficult. However, on December 30th, I decided to add the finishing touches to all the posts I had drafted so far (photos) and post them within an hour of each other so they wouldn't go to waste. And that's the last time I had posted until today. Time just seemed to get the better of me and I've been posting over on my photography blog you can give it a read here.  

I'm also coming to terms with the fact that in 3 short months I would have handed in all of my work and will only have the graduate show (exhibition) to go. Dr Rowan Bailey who teaches postgraduate study came in to discuss the master's courses they offer on Friday morning. I've thought about doing a masters but I'm unsure whether I would want it to be in photography. The University of Huddersfield offers two masters in Digital Media one is a taught MA and the other is an MA by research and each lasts for 12 months.  After hearing about both of them, I've decided that if I were to do an MA it would more than likely be a taught one. One thing the talk did do increase my interests in actually pursuing an MA so I've been doing some research over the weekend, marketing is currently looking like a strong contender. 

Whilst it is a little daunting as to how much time I have left before I've finished, I am so excited about  God's plan for the future. And I'm also really excited about my major project, I am currently looking at the expression of gestures through the use of dance and music which involves collaborating with music and dance students something I've never done before but I do love dance photography so I'm excited to give it a try. 

During blogmas I mentioned, that I wanted to take gym classes and that I had attended a Body Vive class but with it being the end of the year I didn't get the opportunity to attend many before I went home for Christmas. I can certainly say that so far this year I have tried to attend at least two Body Vive classes a week. One of them is on a Saturday morning! If you were to say to me this time last year that I would be getting out of my bed fairly earlyish for me on Saturday morning to go to a fitness class I would have laughed. Honestly! Don't get me wrong it's tiring and my legs were aching so much last Saturday when I came home, but it's enjoyable and you feel so much better about yourself afterwards.
