Today was an excellent day! I graduated in company of my mum and sister, and then the three of us headed down the bay for lunch. It was such a nice day, thoroughly enjoyed by all! Congratulations to all graduates of University of Wales, Newport 2012! That’s me done and dusted, with a first in Graphic Design!
Our lovely friend Maria came to visit us today! Myself, Claire and Maria all studied graphic design together at Newport University, and now she’s moved to London, so it was lovely being reunited again. I forgot to take more photos, as I was too busy nattering, but I couldn’t help but take yet -another- sunset photo, the skies just too pretty here!
After finding a flat so prompt (and quickly paying the holding deposit) I booked an earlier train back to Cardiff, so I could get on with all the paper work. Got most of it done on the Megabus out of stress (blerh, I don’t do well looking at my iPad and phone on the coach). Nearly everything is sorted, and I took this photo arriving back in Newport, nearly home!
AMAZING NEWS TODAY! I got the job in London that I mentioned when going there for interviews! In July I’ll be moving to London to be a web/graphic designer at Digital Window! Today was an awesome day, I had to quickly have a meeting with the external examiner at uni, in which I was so giddy we chatted for 20 mins over my time.. oops. Then went for a celebratory lunch with my housemate David, that was only our starters! After I packed up some things ( and realised I have lots of books!) I headed h0me to Cardiff where this lovely cake was waiting for me that my mum made! The W is styled like the logo I did to gain the job!
Today was my graduation show, and it was a fantastic night! Admittedly, I cried, after telling myself that I wouldn’t, but who would blame me! It was just a lovely night full of admiration for everyone. I was definitely a happy, smiley, Steph when we were finished, and went out for a really nice meal with my delightful Mum.
Today was a packed day. FINALLY picked up my PC in the morning, with no time to even turn it on as I had to still go to the printed before work. After work I went to the photography graduate show, and it was really good. Definitely looking forward to mine (it’s open until Thursday if you want to come along!)
Today I went to Port80, a Web Design conference hosted by @port80Events (twitter). It was a wonderful day, being surrounded by like minded web design geeks, and I learnt so much, and met some really lovely people that I had previously chatted to on Twitter! At 3.45 I quickly popped off to grab a few photos of the Olympic Torch as it went past! It was admittedly great fun running ahead of the torch to get some good shots, and I’m happy with them! I’ll put them on my website soon.
Another day working away at uni with a lovely trip to revs for a break and yum lunch (only one more Monday uni lunch left, sad times!). Took this photo walking home, I was being chased by an upcoming storm, and made it home within minutes of it pouring down! Only 6 days left until my final be all and end all hand in at uni! It’s just flown past.
The weather really caught me out today, after a lovely lunch with Claire, I, got, soaked walking to the gym. So much so, I had to take this pathetic photo to illustrate my point. Anyway, tomorrow is our penultimate deadline, so I’m spending this soggy bank holiday doing work with a quick lunch and gym trip – after a quick self wallowing nap, I’ve been so knackered these last few days from cycling, work and uni work.
