Deadline week: Competition Project

16 04 2008

Once again it’s been an extremely busy time as I have been working flat out for this competition project and the dissertation, and have been having meetings with Sloane. Unfortunately on the day of the big meeting, where I went to their factory and really wanted to make a massive impression, I got struck down with an annoying cold. I feel a lot better today with a lot more energy, but it’s not a good impression when I have to blow my nose every 5 minutes and leave a trail of tissues behind!

Their factory is actually amazing. Not sure how much I am allowed to talk about but it was fantastic, they think the same way that I do pointing out all the common sense errors and thinking of better ways to do things. Fantastic. It was so wonderful being there with them, and they dropped massive hints about the KTP so hopefully they’d like me to apply for it and this whole competition has given me a huge foot in the door.

On the other hand, working for Bulb has been a really fantastic experience and I would love to continue with them as long as possible. This is the tough decision, but it does sort of depend upon whether I work well in the KTP environment, and also whether I am suited to freelancing with Bulb. Who knows. It’s going to be a tough couple of months as I push through.

Do feel bad for not being back down south more often, and I feel I am neglecting that part of my life but it will be sorted after this month when my huge deadlines have gone. I just hope people at home can understand that, and remember what it was like.

In other news, family is doing really well. Which is a big relief.

Have almost conquered the pole dancing fear, am going to go the lesson tomorrow with a non scared attitude and just do it. I WILL conquer this!

Dan is starting to feel a bit neglected as well, but will have to remedy that this weekend by cooking stew and having barbeques and drinking Pimms like we always do. Have really enjoyed hanging out with different people though, it’s been wicked making new friends.

Right, must get the competition project finished tonight so can print off tomorrow and rest my mind about it, then can crack on with the dissertation and get it more or less drafted out. It’s all going well so far, mainly because I am working non stop. Had a bit of a lazier day today because it was drawing sketchbook work but it’ll be back to the hard graft soon enough!

Really looking forward to the party at the beginning of next month, and Freefest. Woooohooo! Excitement!
