    6 Bullet Journal Spread Ideas For Students

    One of my most used items at university is my bullet journal. I love planning this way because I can customize a bullet journal spread for my specific needs. My bullet journal keeps me organised and in turn, helps me get all my coursework finished and handed in on time.  If you already have a bullet journal you will know how much it can aid productivity. One advantage of the bullet journal system is how it can be customised for your specific needs.  Today I am going to share 6 examples of spreads you can use in your bullet journal which can help you stay organised at university. These spreads…

    The Best Planners For University Students

    It’s the end of summer, which means it’s now my favourite time of the year. Back to school season. Okay, that’s not entirely true. Starting a new course or going back after having a full summer off can be stressful. But it also gives you a perfectly good excuse to buy a new planner. Today I’m going to share what I think are the best planners for students. All the planners I’ve mentioned in this blog post are ones I’ve used at some point in the past at college or university. Some I found more helpful than others. But this is a good place to start if you’re a university…

    Final Week Before Assessment | Art School Diary #13

    The final week before my semester one hand in date was quite hectic. With two projects needing to be finished not to mention an essay which still hadn’t been written. Being my first hand in at art school this was quite stressful, coming into the course from college made it hard knowing what level the lecturers expect you to be, when it comes to your work. But I’m glad to say I coped with the week, CFS problems and all. STAYING ORGANISED I know I just said this week was stressful, but that isn’t quite the truth. One of the most important things I learned at college was time management.…

    Darkroom & Artist Books | Art School Diary #11

    It might sound a little strange but I came to a realisation this week that I do actually enjoy what I’m doing. Between all the stress of coursework and managing a chronic illness, it seems I forgot to enjoy my time at university. Between learning about the darkroom process this week and working on an editorial project it all just clicked. I really do enjoy graphic design and I’m glad I applied to university. It’s the reason why this flare-up of my CFS is so frustrating. Because I don’t want to be stuck at home all the time. I want to be in the studio working around others and taking…

    Photography & Essay Writing | Art School Diary #10

    It’s been another quiet week. My CFS has still been giving me problems so I’ve spent most of my time resting and trying to catch up with sketchbook work. Fortunately, I’ve managed to get a letter from my doctor and an appointment with disability services. I don’t know if there is much my uni can do to help, but at least I won’t get in bother for missing class. This week I have been trying out photography and learning about the darkroom process. As well as doing more work for my current project and context module. PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP One of the most exciting things to happen this week was an…
